Had a great time. The service
Had a great time. The service at Rosa Mexicano is excellent. We had a table of 5 and three people serving our table. Don't miss the excellent Margaritas and Guacamole. The food is a bit spicy so for those who don't love spicy food, be sure to inquire!

A Must Try
We were greeted right away with excellent service. The tableside guacamole is a must. Entrees had a gourmet presentation and taste to them, excellent verde sauce, brown & wild rice served on the side along with beans, not your standard tacos and enchiladas.

Had dinner at 5pm. I was
Had dinner at 5pm. I was with great old friends we entered the restaurant and they acted like they had known us forever. The food was excellent. The chef made us special tacos on the the house. We can't wait to go back. This was my 3rd time there and it was good the first time.

sevice was great and so was
sevice was great and so was the food. Only dissapointment was they running out of the entrees we actually wanted and had to settled for an average plate, we should of got a discount for not having what we realy wanted, especially after paying 13 dollars for a drink.

Thanks for a special time
We had a great time. The food was excellent. We went for the Passover and regular menus. The holiday menu was fun, different and tasty. The service was great. They made sure that a vegan and people with allergies were taken care of.

Had a wonderful night out at Rosa Mexicano. From the guac to the pom margaritas to the ceviche trio, every single item we ordered was fantastic.

Right On Rosa!!!
My first experience with Rosa Mexicano was Saturday, March 30. A friend and I were here for the Lalah Hathaway concert at Club Nokia. What a wonderful dining experience we had. The interior design is unbelievable. The service was outstanding. Our server was attentive, polite, humorous and professional. We found out he was from the same small Mexican town as my friend's mother. The food was authentic and downright delicious. My favorite part was watching the making of the guacamole. I seriously and highly recommend Rosa Mexicano.

The guacamole is extremely
The guacamole is extremely overpriced. $26 for the large portion!?
But the entrees and sides are appropriately priced and are quite tasty.

Great Pre-Concert Meal
Very good, upscale Mexican restaurant. If you're looking for your basic taco/enchilada combo, probably not your place. But if you want unique entrees such as duck tacos with orange salsa, then you'll enjoy the experience. Excellent margaritas and their guacamole is made fresh table side. Located at LA Live next to Staples Center, great place to meet for pre-concert or pre-game meal.

Food was fantastic! Kids
Food was fantastic! Kids came with, the chicken taco and quesadilla were overly seasoned and the kids didn't finish them. The La Suprema margarita was a bit to sweet.. But their Mole and rice was fabulous!

We went here before a Kings game recently and we we're not disappointed. The table side made guacamole was really excellent. The drinks were really in small little glassed (we had the skinny Margarita's) and were really overpriced for what you got. They did have a tasting flight for different tequila's that was really the best deal. For $15.00 you got 3 pretty good sized tastings...enough to get a good buzz going! I had the chicken enchiladas and while tasty they were barely warm. I never understand that! Our server was really good though. The prices here are on the high side so be prepared for that. You must get the "donuts" for dessert...to die for!

Great food! Great drinks! Especially their pomegranate margarita!! Yummy!! Beautiful atmosphere that everyone will enjoy!
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food but a little spendy
Great food, had the duck tacos and the pomegranate margarita. But for mexican food which is amazing a lot of places in LA it is a bit pricey. :(
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good restaurant
I had a meeting in downtown area, so I picked up this restaurant for the first time. Hostess is very nice and kind. Food is excellent. It's a bit expensive side, but really enjoyed experience.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit pricey but special decor
Prices are somewhat high for the type of food served. However, I like the decor - upscale and interesting. Service was very good.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our reservation was honored promptly even though the restaurant was extremely busy. Service was gracious, margaritas were killer- fresh lime juice, organic agave, high end tequilas..food was great...we will be back whenever we are downtown for a show. did I mention the house table salsas? Their green tomatillo habanero is to die for!!

First Time at LA Live
This was my first time at LA Live. I met a friend for lunch when the restaurant opened on the weekend. The drinks and food are high quality and I enjoyed both. The only problem was it seemed understaffed. Several conventions were in town (as usual) and when the restaurant got crowded mid afternoon, the service and quality of drinks suffered. There also appeared to be only one bartender on duty.

Per concert dinner
Made reservations before a concert. Tried the Dinela menu. Good price, lots of food. yummy good food!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Waiter and bus boys really went out of their ways... exceptional service. Food is very good... we especially like the camarones, and black beans. The pomegranate margarita is darn good too. Good size portions.

Not your Typical Mexican Restaurant
So this is what "real" Mexican food tastes like! Loved our server Cesar! He truly made our dining experience enjoyable. We were just there two days ago but will be returning tomorrow because of him - and the food was extremely delicious too!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
So glad I made a reservation. If not, we would have never made it to our event on time. Wait times were long. The margaritas are delicious, but small for the price. At leat they did not skimp on the tequila. We tried the table side guacamole, the fish tacos and the veggie tacos. The veggie tacos were amazing. I've never had anything like it. Definitely recommend them if you are avoiding meat. Service was great. We were in and out in an hour. No long wait for our food.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
dinner at LA Live before Bruno Mars
The Gucamole they make right at the table is fantastic. We also shared a pitcher of white wine sangria, $28, that was very tasty. My favorite dish was a chicken tortilla pie. Yummy. The service was great. Waiters were friendly and efficient. Our food came in a timely manner. Nice option when you are at LA Live. I called to say we were running late, and they pushed back our reservation 30 minutes without any hassle. I would definitly go back there again!

Excellent Skillet Skirt Steak
The skillet skirt steak was excellent. The steak was tender and delicious servced on a bed of melted cheese. WHAT could be better? The Skinny Margarita was actually good. For 158 cals it was a small drink, but hit the spot. The table-side guacamole is really delicious. The churros dessert was just so-so. Really NOTHING to write home about. Skip it and try one of the helados.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
When we arrived at the restaurant, I realized the I forgot my tickets to Staple Center at home. No problem, the manager, without hesitation, offered to have one of his managers reprint the tickets for me. 5 minutes later I had them on my table and the crisis was avoided. We enjoyed a fantastic dinne and were grateful for the 5 star service from the staff.
Will definitely come back and will work on a corporate event at Rosa's when I am there for my next convention!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a little early to eat a meal, but enjoyed the drinks and the fantastic guacamole and chips
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The guacamole is fabulous, as was the carne asada. And I cannot forget to mention the pomegranate margaritas. Be wary- they are STRONG and yummy!
Overall a wonderful evening with my husband... Would highly recommend to anyone who likes Mexican food- this is "high end" Mexican at its best!
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time visiting Rosa Mexicano I am definitely going back. The Guacamole was amazing!!!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
second visit fantastic visit.
This was our second vist to Rosa Mexicano. The food and service were fantastic on both visits. All employees had sincere, positive attitudes.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had dinner reservations at 6pm, ran a little late but called restaurant to let them know we'd be a few minutes late. Didn't want to risk them giving our table away. Well, they held our table and walked us straight to our table with NO wait... Loved it!
Great friendly service and food was delicious! We will definitely be back!
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
who knew LA Live had such a good restaurant among them. We had a delicious brunch with great service. Try the chilequiles and bloody marys. The churros are amazing and that guacamole made tableside is killer. what a great experience.
10/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food and relaxing
No rush and very accommodating. The chicken and beef enchiladas were terrific. Great relaxing spot before a Kings game.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a dinner reservation for 6:00 and so glad we had one, the place was packed (of course it was the night of Bon Jovi!), we were seated right away, no waiting at all, which was so nice! Immediately ordered the guacamole, so good, I could've eaten that all night. The Organic Sangria was the best white sangria I've ever had, hands down! Food was also delish, there were 4 of us and we all had a clean plate when finished.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love a great margarita
There is a number of margaritas to choose from on the menu. Our table picked one of each and they were all exceptional . Don't let the smaller size fool you, they are loaded and one you will feel. The guacamole is made at the table and delicious . We will be regular customers when we are at or around the staples center
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Mexican food was familiar, yet prepared slightly different. Nice change from the usual.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food never dissapointed here the table side guacamole is to die for.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing place. This last time
Amazing place. This last time my friend's dish (meat) was a bit dry and overcooked, which has never happened to me before. Service was great as always and they were apologetic about the issue. Over all a great place and I would definitely recommend.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a higher end mexican spot but I practically customized my dish and the chef did an amazing job for my request. The pork belly was delicous. The server/staff was very friendly.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent guacamole! Also the nachos are amazing…not at all like the regular ones you might be expecting:) YUM!
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had theater tickets and were running late. They really came through in taking our order and getting us on our way!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Found this place before my husband and I went to a Clippers game. The food was yummy especially the handmade guacamole. The best were the margaritas especially loved their tequila infused coconut drink. The portions were small but filling after chips I like that they were not huge I left filling just right. I recommend for a great dinner.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun restaurant and good food
Enjoyed the restaurant. The food is very good. However, be warned, an order of the tableside guacamole cost $26.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've been here a couple of times now and its been the most consistently good experience in L.A. Live. Staff is friendly, food is good to great, service is prompt. It's not your run of the mill cheap taco joint for sure as other reviewers have noted, but that's not what you should be looking for when you come here. The margaritas here are great and the guacamole is a must have.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Game Night Dinner
Good food, great location and they take a reservation. Everything we were looking for before going to a Kings game. Will definitely return!

Upscale Modern Mexican
I went with a group for a friend's birthday lunch during our work day. Our server was great and very knowledgeable about the menu. We all had the prickly pear agua fresca which was so good! Our entrees were the pork belly nachos, the chicken enchiladas,and the veggie tacos. Everyone raved about their entrees. And, of course, we had the table side guacamole! I highly recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes Mexican food, but is willing to go beyond the traditional combo plates.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent Fine Mexican food
We had a terrific meal, myself a Filet Mignon and my GF had the Floutas ... everything was very well prepared and the meal started with some excellent chips and salsa ... granted it was way to hot for my GF but I found it enjoyable. We finished the meal with their churros, very traditionally prepared with dipping sauces.
The service and hostess staff needs some improvement. We asked to be seated inside (because it was a rare rainy and cold LA day, to get seated right next to the drafty door. I said to the hostess this was not good and she said she could close the door which then immediately became open by repeated servers. Our water guy moved us. Additionally we felt the wait staff needed to be more attentive, glasses were empty often.

Great Food Great Sercive
This is my 2nd time visiting in a month. Everytime I have an event at LA Live I'm coming back for a pomegranate margarita. Don't like the blended drink fool you.
