Came here just before 4pm on on a Saturday afternoon, it wasn't busy. Used the restrooms before sitting down, the men's room smelled moldy but appeared clean. I was cautiously optimistic at this point and we were seated promptly. The place has a small bar area that is open to the rest of the restaurant and has a very typical... More

The food at La Fuente is sooooo good!! I've been there a few times now and it's good food, not expensive and the atmosphere of the place is great. I've been there during busy hours and when no one else was there and the service is great! Food comes out quick, and is delicious! Highly recommend!

This year we chose La Fuente and we were not disappointed. The food was good and service was quick ( they weren't very busy) We asked for some modifications to our selections and... More

This was my second visit. I wasn't impressed with the food first time which was about two years ago. Our friends chose this restaurant for a little get together. I ordered a chicken enchilada with a Chile rellano which includes rice and refried beans. My husband ordered Chile Verde and was told it's not on the menu, but, they could... More

The food was good and the staff was friendly. We would definitely come back if we were in the area. It was a short 10 minute from Reno

Our first time in this restaurant to try it at the recommendation from someone. We were in there for an early dinner to order food for take out. Our first reaction is that the lady behind the counter to take the order was making us feel rushed like another poster said. I don't know why as there was nothing else... More
