Yes, We Are Open For Business

Historically known as the first restaurant in the country to incorporate live mariachi musical performances with sit-down dining while simultaneously revolutionizing the genre in Los Angeles, La Fonda is back with the same spirit.

Founded in 1969 as the home for the best mariachi music in LA, La Fonda reemerges with its original recipe: enchanting mariachi productions and mouthwatering dishes. Reopening at its original Wilshire Boulevard location, this LA landmark remains a nostalgic reminder of the fusion of classical Mexican folkloric music and a tantalizing dining experience.

Guests are treated like family and encouraged to socialize and lounge in a classy yet comfortable atmosphere where mariachi music moves you and authentic Mexican cuisine with multicultural twists satisfies your soul.

With strong ties to the local community, La Fonda will collaborate with multidisciplinary cultural arts organizations in order to promote the best in performing arts and music.

La Fonda is located at 2501 Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. The restaurant is open for dinner Wednesday through Sunday from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. with a daily happy hour between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

To make a reservation, please call 213-380-5053 or visit
