Great gluten-free menu
Our party of four had only one non-celiac diner so it was great to have a choice of delicious menu items to choose from that were gluten-free.

Made a reservation here during the busy Boston weekend for graduations. The service was great, food fresh and not the same old Mexican blah that seems to be everywhere. The desserts and drinks were Delish !!! Only comment was the music was too loud and when the restaurant started to get busy it was distracting and you had to shout when talking. Loved the design and the wall waterfall. Seaport location is great ~ Will be back again !!!

Brunch with flair
We enjoyed a number of new flavors as well as some old stand-bys during our brunch. The guacamole is made fresh table-side for a truly fresh appetizer. The specialty drinks were delicious, and the french toast amazing. The decor is young and fresh, and the water wall is beautiful! Definitely a wonderful experience.

I have been to Rosa Mexicana multiple times before and every time has been amazing, the service, food, drinks, and atmosphere are all great!! I would recommend this place to anyone, as long as you like American Mexican! We had the best time!! I recommend the Sangria & Fish Tacos they are amazing plus the guac is outstanding, and made to order at your table!! Great date night, girls night, or work outing!

Finally, after 5 years in the Boston area we've found a Mexican restaurant we can love. The guacamole, made to order, was fantastic and the watermelon/tuna ceviche was to die for. Also, service was great - no complaints at all.

Best guacamole I've tried in a restaurant! Food was very good, a little pricey but it is ok for a special occasion I guess! Kind of Authentic Mexican food (I'm mexican)

I thought I didn't like guacamole.
My husband ordered the 'famous' guac that is made fresh tableside. I've tasted guacamole before, but never really cared for it. Since I do like avacado plain, I decided to try it. I ended up eating more of it than my husband did. So fresh, somewhat chunky. No pureed green mess here! We also got the Ceviche sampler. Everything was so good.
Entree was Pescado Pibil (skillet style). It was good, very fresh. Just right after all those chips and guacamole. My entree came with Mexican Street Corn. I have never had it before, but now I want to try and make it at home. Such a yummy surprise!
Upscale mexican that my husband and I thoroughly enjoy for special date nights.

Sweet sixteen at Rosa Mexicano!
Perfect place for a small sweet sixteen bash -- festive and fun. The ambiance feels hip and sophisticated, and the food is
upscale Mexican -- very good, esp. excellent guacamole and fun drinks. I highly recommend this restaurant for a lively night in the city. New Seaport location is fabulous.

Great food, very noisy
Try lunch, or eat outside, if you want a quieter experience
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
High quality Mexican dishes, prepared with authentic fresh spices. Great restaurant
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took my husband here for father's Day. He loves Mexican food and was very pleased with the food served at this restaurant. The ambience was great and the service was fast and impeccable. The location is great as well.

Great place for Sunday summer lunch
Nice to sit outside; good food and drinks; great staff
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Date Night Venue
My husband and I had a lovely pre-concert dinner. Due to weather we ate inside. The atmosphere was festive and the food savory. Both in its presentation and taste the gaucamole is a must. We had a nice dinner and were able to converse without too much background noise. The walk to the Pavillion was the perfect distance to stretch after a meal.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great mexican food
Their guacamole, tortilla chips and accompanying sauces were to die for. I'd go back just for that. I went with some co-workers and we each had a couple of different dishes, chicken enchiladas, cheese enchiladas and the chicken quesadillas. All of it was delicious. We sat outside on the patio, which on a nice day, is a great spot.
Can't wait to go back and possibly try their drink menu.
6/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Pre-Show Dining
Went here for dinner with some co-workers as a prelude to a show at the Pavilion...The guacamole was made fresh table side and was amazing, altho the chips were a little too salty. Tequila shots were great...margaritas were great, the enchilladas were delicious. All fresh ingredients and the right amount of "heat" to the food.
Definitely two thumps up.
6/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I heart Rosa Mexicano
Could use a few more new vegetarian items---but I love this place...you will too
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but pricey & different than NY
The food was excellent with the exception of a warm, not hot soup. The only real disappointment was unlike Rosa in NYC, the guacamole wasn't made tableside which makes me wonder why I'm paying $20... Overall, great food.

Took my wife there for her
Took my wife there for her birthday. Had an awesome meal and the server was very friendly. Mole sauce was phenomenal, as was the guacamole.
It was a Sunday night so it was not too crowded. Seems like it would have been a good place to bring our toddler had it not been a date night.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We really enjoyed our visit to Rosa Mexicano. The service was great and the mole on the beef short rib enchiladas was some of the best I've ever had. And definitely get the guacamole.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loud dining room, good food.
Loud music made hearing soft spoken waitstaff hard to hear. Food a step above generic mexican restaurant, however, fell short of on value for pricey entres.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Groups
The staff was very accommodating, and gave us individual checks which included gratuity. Fresh Guac was very good, as was the pitcher of Sangria. "Happy Hour" food specials aren't quite as good as they sound, since not all of the taco types are available at the $1 each deal. Overall, we had a great night. We were able to get patio seating, and they let our group linger, since it was a quiet Monday night. We only left when we were driven out by construction noise from across the street!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful dinner on the outdoor patio. We had an incredible view of the city skyline during sunset.
The food was impressive as was the service. I was particularly impressed with how good the sangria was. We will definitely go back!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Interesting dishes, attractive room, great margaritas, excellent service
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place! Great food, better drinks! LOUD bar area - not great for older/hard of hearing but the restaurant side was perfect. Not loud and very comfortable. Can't wait to go back!
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food. Service was
Excellent food. Service was courteous, but slow for a weekday lunch. Food came quickly once order was taken.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious guacamole, but...
We had a great time and really enjoyed the guacamole. My only complaint is that the dish my friend and I ordered wasn't exactly as it was described. It wasn't until after we left that I realized that the salmon did not come with the zucchini and corn as stated on the menu and the tropical fruit salsa consisted of two small pieces of pineapple. It was disappointing in retrospect but we still had a nice time.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything about the restaurant was pretty perfect. The food was wonderful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Better the first time
This was my third time eating here. The first time was great. The second time was pretty good. The third time was ok. I ordered the salmon, rare, and it came out well done. They were quick to replace it and the next time around it was medium, but still good. My daughter ordered a beef taco from the kids menu and she was disappointed. Though she ordered a corn tortilla, it was served with a whole wheat tortilla and the beef was not what she expected. Maybe next time we'll have better luck.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
was surprised that a program
was surprised that a program mexican restaurant would be so good
thanks for the experience

Option for near-authentic Mexican
Rosa Mexicano is an excellent option if you are looking for a more authentic Mexican restaurant. The guacamole is fantastic and is freshly-made at the table. The Carne Asada is marinated and cooked wonderfully. The only drawback is that the corn tortillas are similar to what you get in the grocery store here in the US. For the prices that you pay, I would have expected more traditional tortillas made from maize. I went with a couple Mexicans and this was the only knock on the restaurant.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Great Modern Mexican Place
The food was absolutely delicious! Fresh guacamole made at your table side, and the waiters are very hospitable. Went here for restaurant week menu, and the choices were out of this world. would be a place for a long sit down lunch/ dinner, definitely think more than an hour lunch break!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Raves for Rosa
Only complaint was the Guacamole, a signature dish for Rosa. Asked for medium spicy- it was extremely bland and we had to remix and crush avocado as it was left in huge pieces.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What the guac?!
Best made-at-table guacamole that I've had in Boston! Can't wait to go back again.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gotta get the guac
If you have the pleasure of dining at this restaurant, you must get the table-side guacamole. Best I have ever had. My friend had the Duck Tacos and said they were fabulous. I had the grilled chicken "skillet style" and it was very dry.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
A co-worker and I decided to go somewhere new on Friday night. We decided on the seaport district. It was restaurant week. We sat out on the patio. This turned out to be a very noisy evening. Helicopters were hovering for a good 20 minutes of the meal. Loud music from the world trade center building made it difficult to have a conversation. I would recommend indoors.
The food was exceptional. The waiter top notch. We had a fabulous guacomole. I had shrimp followed by a flan for dessert. My co-worker had a meat dish. We ordered a pitcher of red Sangria. At first we thought it was watery and the waiter ordered us a new batch. Still lacked the flavor we were looking for. Overall a very positive experience.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful birthday celebration
My daughter picked this restaurant as the place to celebrate her birthday with the family. I was very impressed with all the staff and their attention to every detail. The food was wonderful, the service fabulous! Loved their "birthday tequila ferris wheel" Great for the 21+ crowd!

City to City Rosa is VeryConsistent
When we lived in Manhattan we frequently dined at Rosa Mexicano. In our travels we have enjoyed dining at the Washington, DC restaurant and now Boston. In every instance the food was outstanding and the sophistication and ambience excellent.
Short rib enchiladas in mole were outstanding. So were the pork belly "nachos", really a layered stack of interesting flavors and textures. My wife enjoyed her crab enchiladas albeit they were closer in look to a torta than a typical enchilada.
Of course we had the guacamole, which sets the standard for any served anywhere!
If you want top shelf Mexican in Boston, Rosa Mexicano is our recommendation.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good tex-mex food
We had a great meal, the food was fresh and refreshing. The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable. It was our first time trying this restaurant and we would definitely return as well as recommend it to others.
We were given a recommendation of a Mexican restaurant down the street which we tried the next day and found the food less than ideal, the staff was difficult to communicate with and scattered throughout the restaurant. Won't be going back.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun Place to Dine with Friends
Each time I go here I am not disappointed, They do a great job. The staff is always very friendly. They do a great job serving you. The food is very good. Always make sure you get the guacamole dip made at the table. Be careful the bill does ad up quickly
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best guac in town!
They make it at your table...there's nothing like it!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent, great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice for families
Great guacomole and pomegranate margaritas. Seafood was fresh and food was great. If your looking for a nice
Mexican restaurant with really good food, this will fit your order. Staff was very attentive and pleasant. Will go back again next visit to Boston.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was refreshing to see real, homemade Mexican food . Fresh ingredients , yummy margaritas, table side preparation of guacamole ...Every dish was delicious . Easy parking and convenient location . We will definitely return !
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Guacamole out there!!
Best Guacamole out there!! Made right at the table, you can adjust the ingredients to your liking...

Great food & Drinks
Awesome margaritas. Try the Margarita Francesa! Smooth. Food was outstanding. I went with a party of 8 - we all enjoyed our dinners. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Great experience, start to finish.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Rosa Mexicano-Boston Seaport was fabulous. The service was superb, the hard working wait staff were very friendly with excellent recommendations on food and drink. Was very impressed with the appetizers and entree's being served within minutes of ordering. Portions, presentation and overall quality of food was outstanding. We never felt rushed when taking in the restaurants beautiful ambience while drinking some of their tequila inspired cocktails. 2 thumbs up from the couple on their first date!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you are in Seaport...
I highly recommend. Great food with excellent presentation. Drinks went beyond the normal bar selections, even for other high end dining establishments. Went for my wife's birthday and had a great meal that was not rushed. Also, the restaurant had a very nice mellow ambiance (at least the night we went) that was neither contrived nor overly loud.

We were at Rosa Mexicano on a Friday night. We had a reservation, but arrived early and were seated immediately in the bar area. At the time it was not very crowded. The waiter took our drink order (beer and sangria); it then took 10 minutes for the drinks to arrive. The food arrived shortly afterwards; a pet peeve of mine, but it was very good. My friend had fish tacos and I tried one; they were great! I had the scallop and pork tacos; a take on scallops and bacon. Fantastic! The scallop was perfectly cooked and the combination had a wonderful taste!
Rosa Mexicano makes guacamole at the table, but neither of us are guac fans. The people at the next table tried it and said it was very good.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food, strong drinks. Service was great. A bit expensive/nondescript for Mexican, but kind of exactly what you want for a restaurant near a convention center.
