"I am a native of Mexico City and have lived in New York for over 14 years. I was excited that Fonda Chelsea had opened. I was excited to read about the chef and his background. Upon arriving at Fonda Chelsea I found the space incredibly crowded completely overwhelming in terms of volume. Forget chatting with a friend unless you scream. The Chiles en Nogada which were a special were disappointing. They did not use the traditional ground beef and they were actually warm which is a complete no no. The watermelon Margarita actually tasted like a Bloody Mary, not sweet, very unusual. I am sorry to say I would not return. To their credit the guacamole and the flautas were very good. The bartender was distracted and kept forgetting our orders"

Eatery <br> Zagat 2013<br /> Ratings & Review <br><br />FOOD-22 DECOR-17 SERVICE-19 COST-$34<br /><br><br />"Comfort food with a trendy twist" is the calling card of this Hell's Kitchen American where the mid-priced chow arrives in "minimalist"' "diner-chic" digs; "be-seen" types like the "gay-friendly" people-watching and tolerate the high-volume "hustle and bustle"<br />as rated in the 2013 New York City Restaurants Guide-

"I have been here many times given closeness to where I live and reliable fare. This last time the service was chaotic, slow and disappointing. It was unclear who was our server and we kept having long delays before getting the next course or the check. This needs to be looked at because this is the kind of restaurant in which you expect pretty seamless service and, if you don't get that, it may just not be worth going back to"
