Everything was wonderful. That includes the music, dancing, food and service. My husband had the steak and I had the salmon. All the food was great. But outstanding was the ceviche and salmon. I've said it before and I'll say it again. What I like...continued

Great music, although short, we thought the mariachi was only taking a break but turns out they were done and prepping for the next show. We had to pay extra $20 because tip and tax weren't included, so take some cash.

The mariachis were great, as usual. My husband had one criticism about the food- - the beans were cold. The carne asada & the salmon were excellent. We enjoyed the appetizers- - quesadillas with guacamole, ceviche, & taquitos. The waiter...continued

Rarely a dinner show has good food: my experience is that the show is good but the food is simply OK. This is not the case at La Fonda. Both food and entertainment were first class, warm and professional service, nice waiters, what else can anyone...continued

All in all, a great and uniquely L.A. experience. The quality of the performance was first rate, and the food was surprisingly good. The head chef went out of his way to personally greet us and checked back several times during the evening to...continued

I had my Aunt and sister visiting from Texas and I decided to treat them to the Mariachi dinner show and we had a Blast. It was during the week and there was a small amount of people, so we felt the Mariachi was playing just for us.

Having been to La Fonda many years ago, we were looking forward to showing off to our friends and family the great food and mariachi band that we had such fond memories of. We walked out embarrassed: The food was uninspiring, the restaurant was...continued

The Mariachi at this place was wonderful! Top class act. I totally liked the fact that they also had a couple of dancers performing some of the traditional dances. We went for my mother's birthday and they made a point to single out people that...continued

The show was really good. They even played 1 Beatles song for those that didn't understand Spanish. The food was really good. However, my friend asked for sour cream and there was a $1.00 charge when we got the bill. We didn't read the fine...continued

We had a delicious 4 course meal and a show with 7 musicians and 2 dancers. We were thoroughly entertained and all of the staff members were very gracious. I think it is a great value and will go back again.
