Good place for Colombian food. The service was a little slow, even though the restaurant was only at about 50% capacity. We ordered cazuela de mariscos and shrimp, an appetizer and 1 jugo and dessert. It was all delicious, but NOT inexpensive.

This is a really comfortable restaurant serving good Colombian inspired food and drinks at reasonable prices. From cocktails to appetizer to entrees and then desert everything exceeded expectations. Desert tasted homemade. Service was informative and friendly. My only surprise was that it was not crowded...More

Description
La Fonda specializes in Colombian and Latin dishes. The restaurant has a full bar that"s ready to accommodate with a variety of drinks. Specials are available and they change daily. Moreover, the restaurant is decorated in a contemporary fashion, but with a Colombian theme, adding the more traditional flavor. La Fonda has an extensive list of entree options - along with quite a few specials. We also have famous margaritas which are shaken at the table and are delicious. One of our most famous appetizer;s is the special empanada appetizer - ground beef with raisins. Some popular dishes are the churrasco with chimichurri sauce, the brisket served with multiple sides with the entrees, including great plantains. We have the best service in town and great food.
