Lola was our matriarch. She was spicy and saucy. So we learned from her, to do what we love. make people happy by giving delicious drinks, mouthwatering food just like the abuela would .
Our unique #mexicanfiesta option offers the best 6 course tasting menu in the universe. A rollercoaster of emotions, flavours and textures .
Like we say in Mexico , mi casa es tu casa.
Went here for summerlicious for brunch. The portion was very small but it was very delicious. The ambience at the patio was very nice. I loved everything except the chair i was sitting on that was very wobbly. I would come back here again
Food was bland with very little flavour. The waitress was a little condescending at times and definitely acted like she was doing us a favour by bringing our food out.
Decor is nice and has an expensive feel, but the food is poor.
We went here for summerlicious and the items were so small. Atmosphere at the back patio is super cool, drinks were good but really expensive.
The fish taco and cilantro dressing was delicious. The classic Mojito was refreshing, and the avocado ice cream was sinful treat. The restaurant was so pretty with the back patio and twinkly lights, down to the blue and white plates with orange napkins a feast for the senses as well and the stomach.
The food was ok. It wasn't bad and there was nothing wrong. It was just ok. The dining room was a million degrees without AC and no fans to move the hot air around. Kinda killed our vibe. Brought in a group of 20 people and didn't get much of a thank you or any sort of acknowledgement from the manager - which is a missed opportunity for them to earn back a customer. Toronto is full of options and this wasn't good enough to go back.
Food is so flavourful and fresh! Even the margaritas are made with real fruit and taste fantastic!
The team is amazing and very friendly
Service very slow and waitress inattentive. Tree on patio kept dropping little leaves in our hair, our drinks and food.
The food quality, ambience, and drinks were all so amazing! Event the owner came out to say hi and to check in. They have $3.50 taco Tuesdays and the food is off the charts amazing!! I'll definitely be coming back
We tried several dishes and none were crowd pleasers. The best thing we tried was the fish tacos.
From the moment you walk in, you know your experience will be authentic and special.
My SO and I gave this place a shot. We ordered down the barbacoa burritos, ceviche, and chicken tacos. I mainly had the barbacoa, which was fine - the meat was tasty if a little dry. Maybe I’ve been spoiled in the past, but I’m used to ordering tacos and receiving toppings as well (lettuce, beans, pico, or guac), but I only got the meat, three small tortillas, and a little bit of hot sauce. The ceviche was great, and the chicken tacos were fine.
Service was exceptional - they seated us quickly and were helpful for the whole meal. The setting is great too (love the layout of the backpatio and the fixtures in the bathroom), I just wish the food was better.
Delicious and authentic food surrounded by a traditionally yet contemporary environment. Lovely Mother’s day brunch!
What an amazing place, with such a great atmosphere and vibe. When sitting on the patio, you almost feel as if you are on vacation in another country. I love the Fish Tacos! Ernesto makes you feel like you are part of his family, and has a true passion for his work.
It was an amazing time. food was so good and staff were wonderful. Their patio is also so cute and I had an amazing cinco de mayo
Fantastic food and great service! Loved the fish tacos!!!
Overall great atmosphere and decor. Nice place to go for dinner with friends. Food was good but nothing out of the ordinary, and it was overpriced in my opinion.
Everything was lovely but the food is a bit pricey for the porsions and there should be a bit more variety of authentic Mexican dishes.
We had a great meal and great service. The margaritas were delicious and so was the food. Everything we ate I would recommend - ceviche, Tlacoyo, baja fish and beef barbacoa tacos and for dessert churros and flan al tequila! Thanks Fonda Lola for a great meal and experience!
Great food! On the smaller side with the portions but every single bite was fantastic.
Wonderful experience. We’ll definitely be back.
Staff was great, food delicious, great cocktails. Great ambience for date night or just chilling with friends.
Food was excellent and fresh. The guacamole and chips appetizer was tasty and the portion was much larger than expected. Dinners were fantastic, and the churros were some of the best I’ve ever had. Service was prompt and friendly. Would highly recommend!
The food wasnt amazing. In fact it tasted like it was old and pre-heated
It was our first time at Fonda Lola and we have really enjoyed the experience of this authentic Mexican restaurant! The vibes and the atmosphere were simply great!
The food was really good as well the service and the cocktails... you can definitely say that they put love in what they do!
I’ll come back for sure!
I went on a Saturday night with some girlfriends, and it was so much fun! The Fish Tacos are OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!!! So much so that we had to order another round of them. We ended up talking to the owner and learning about the different locations (one in Mexico... no wonder why it's so delicious!) and about Tequila of course. We left full, and super happy. I would highly recommend anyone to go. I am craving some tacos already!
The food and cocktails were delicious. The servers were all very friendly and helpful, and the manager (or owner) was fantastic.
I had never been to Fonda Lola - the flavours used in the Mole Rojo (dark chocolate and dried pepper) were imaginative and flavourful. Service was excellent. I will go there again.
Food was fantastic! Servers were pleasant although stretched a bit thin because the restaurant was full! Would return :)
The food was good, however the staff seemed to be in a hurry for us to leave. After we finished our winterlicious lunch, we were immediately presented with our bill. We were not asked if we wanted more drinks. The only question - we were asked was if we needed the machine to pay the bill.
The food was delicious and filling and well portioned! It was nice and calm inside. The server was very friendly and attentive. Would recommend to those looking to eat some Mexican food :)
Portions may seem small but we were ready to be rolled out by the end, the food is pleasantly but unexpectedly filling!
Food was great, drinks are amazing. Our server was good and on point, but the guy behind the bar is key! Definitely seems like he cares about the restaurant and what they put out. Great experience would definitely recommend.
The food is tasty but the portions are very small for the price. The staff is friendly.
Great food, especially as part of winterlicious. Chips, salsa and guac are delicious. We had chicken and beef tacos, both were really good.
Seating is pretty tight, so be ready to know your fellow diners.
Overall, highly recommended.
Great Winterlicious choice! Will go back again! Would love to sit on the patio in summer. Nice size portions- tasty Mexican food and drink!!!
What a fun place! Food was very tasty. Service was great. Really nice staff. We will return.
Small space , great vibe. We were there for Winterlicious . They served the appetizer and immediately following the main. No time to enjoy , felt like they were rushing us along. I accidentally spilled my drink with the crowding on the table and they didn’t even offer to bring me a new one. The service was less than impressive. The food was great. .
Excellent food and prompt service
Amazing food and ambiance . Food was so good and oh so fresh. Absolutely delicious
The food was amazingggg! I would definitely go again. The only thing I didn’t like was I felt like I was being rushed to finish my food in order to leave so they could seat the next group of people. I get it’s winterlicious and they were busy but let me atleast finish my main course before you bring me dessert. I was a little disappointed with that but everything else was great.
