Food was good tasting and portions are generous but it could have been served much hotter. Atmosphere is nice but noise level really takes away from what could be a nice restaurant.

I believe the wait could have been managed faster and better. The hostesses could make the wait more bearable by providing updates in person instead of receiving a text after 35 minutes. Frida should cook the Carnitas without beer. It will have a better taste. I liked the petite cups of chicharon, parsley, onions and mixture of tomatoes, etc. All... More

The food here is delicious and the staff are really attentive. They also have a great selection of cocktails. I went during lunch so am not sure how much the prices would change for a dinner service but I thought it was great value for money as the food was lovely and we got good portion sizes. Would recommend the... More

I visited this restaurant several times in the last 5 years and I will say that it is just good, not great.

We had an adult family brunch there during the holiday season. They have a huge albeit pricy buffet. I thought the quality of the food was average, but we all enjoyed the mariachi performers and the big eaters in the group enjoyed the variety

My description about Freida as best is dissappointment. My wait person was rushed and not pleasant. The restaurent was not overly crowded and walk-in was a breeze. I ordered appetizers that consisted of sweet plaintains, black beans, mexican rice and guacomole. The food was okay. Nothing to write home about. The guacomole was overrun with way too many pieces of... More

When I searched for a restaurant near my hotel, I found this restaurant. I had a taco with an organic camomile tea as well as a multi-layered milk cake as dessert. Everything was great!!! I definitely want to go back when I visit LA later. I wish I can have this in NY.

This is a fine upscale Mexican restaurant in a shopping area where all the restaurants are probably more pricey than you'd care to spend on a regular basis, but if you're ready to splurge and are in the mood for Mexican food then this is as good as any I've eaten at of this caliber. Service was decent and the... More

Great Mexican restaurant in really nice setting. Coming from Texas, this was best Tex/Mex I've had outside of the state! Fajitas were exceptional and plentiful. Everyone raved about their dishes. Service was very good, right on schedule when we were running low on drinks, never had to ask. A great night!

Chargers take note, LA is not for you! Tried to watch the Charger game at Frida's. While they have 2 separate tv systems and several TV's, they would not put any tv's toward the Charger games, all tv's were set to the Cowboys. The food looked good, but we cancelled drinks with the GM's inflexible attitude and went across to... More
