    Highly recommended for lunch

    We were at the American Museum of Natural History and escaped for lunch. We found this place just by walking around, checked out the menu and went in. It was cozy and nicely decorated, and the food was really quite good. I was attracted to the name as well, having recently seen the movie about Frida Callo again, as well as the recent documentary about her life on PBS. Anyhow, we had a nice time, with quick and attentive service, and some very good food. I would recommend it for lunch any time.

    Not recommended

    The guacamole was great! The potions are not reflected in the price. Food was good, a different style of mexican but awesome seafood selection. The atmosphere was cozy but the service lacked. Our waiter was nice but never checked on us or refilled our drinks. The price was just not worth it. I probably wont be going there again.

    Their Guacamole beats Rosa Mexicano's

    We stopped by Cafe Frida for a quick lunch while visiting the Museum and were wowed by their AMAZING guacamole. As guac lovers we've always been told and somewhat agreed that Rosa Mexicano has the BEST in the city but Cafe Frida's was just as tasty if not MORE so and literally 1/2 the price. A new favorite.

    We Love Cafe Frida

    We are from California and good ol' Wisconsin, and this is (in our opinion) the very best Mexican food we have ever eaten, and we have had a lot of good good good Mexican food. Let us just say: The guacamole is the best! It is so amazing, I am drooling just thinking about it, and everything else there that we have had and we've tried about 5 things, were all excellent. Anything with Poblanas is "excellente" so to speak. Muy Bien!

    Best quality Mexican in NYC

    I'm from California and let me tell you...most of NYC lacks decent Mexican food (and not that crap Tex-Mex). Cafe Frida may be a little expensive for Mexican, but the quality is excellent. The guacamole is the BEST! Great mojitos too. Whether you eat brunch or dinner, you are sure to feel satisfied leaving the restaurant.

    Don't order the steak!

    After reading all the great reviews here I was excited to eat at Cafe Frida. I'm sorry to say it was a huge disappointment. I ordered the steak, medium. It was the toughest steak I have ever had the mispleasure of eating anywhere in my entire life! It took about 60 chews to get a small piece down. I had to drown it in the measly portion of salsas that came on the side! The side dishes of rice, refried beans and guac were good but very very tiny. Oh and don't order the Chocolate "cake" either. It was 3 tiny medallions of chocolate with a spoonful of whipped cream in the middle of them. No cake in sight! I wanted to share the "chocolate cake" with the person I was with -- it was hardly enough for 1 person, nevermind two, which would be fine except they charged about $9. Next time I want Mexican food I'm going to Mama Mexico.

    Best Mexican food in NYC

    By far this is the best Mexican food in NYC. I have tried all and by far the sazon here is fantastique!. Service is friendly, but on week-ends you have to wait a long time to get a table but is worth it. Margaritas are great and they just upgraded the wine list. Their house tequila is Herradura and that is phenomenal.
