A word from Rosa Mexicano- South Beach
Our newest Miami restaurant is located in the heart of South Beach in Miami at 1111 Lincoln Road in the architecturally striking new Herzog & de Meuron-designed building. Rosa Mexicano delivers authentic Mexican cooking in an accessible, stylishly festive atmosphere. Rosa Mexicano's menu features a range of award-winning signature dishes, including our Guacamole en Molcajete, in a traditional lava rock mortar. Described by Time Out New York as "green ecstasy in a stone bowl," it is prepared table side and served with house made chips, warm corn tortillas and condiment salsas. Rosa Mexicano is also known for the Frozen Pomegranate Margarita. For this vibrant city we’ve created a welcoming contemporary design, featuring a casually chic dining room with floor to ceiling windows and a travertine bar. Our patio area provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining and people watching.

  • The fish tacos, guac and margaritas
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/12/2013
    The fish tacos, guac and margaritas were delicious. The service was just OK. We had to find someone to wait on our table. We were ignored for the first 10 minutes, and the restaurant was only 1/4 full when we arrived. The staff were not very welcoming, but the food made it worthwhile.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 12/30/2012
    The music was much too loud. It was bad techno-pop and inappropriate for dinner. Turning down the volume would help; having to raise your voice to be heard by the person across the table was a big turn-off. Service was inattentive and slow. Menu is limited, but there are good choices. Guacamole made at tableside is excellent, but be prepared for really small portions. Thinking that an order of three tacos would be substantial proved wrong. They were actually an appetizer size for $17. Food is good, but definitely overpriced, even for South Beach.

    Rosa Mexicano continues to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in Miami. My guest and I were very happy with our meals and service.The only recommendation I would make is to make sure the host /hostess signs in Open Table members. I was surprised to find that I received a "no show" email from OT even though I had asked the host to check me in.

    So so Mexican food, mole drowned enchilada, no or very little crab meet, plenty of open tables even though it said it was the only time open for RSVP, the place was empty an s remained empty an hour and a half later...obviously pushing dinners into early reservation spots. Wouldn't go back.

    Why would a server bring out our table's entrees at the same time as the appetizers? In Miami, nobody cares. Perhaps they do it better back in New York.

    The food and the service was great. The only thing I didn't like was that it was too expensive for the little bit of food they bring out. They charge $14 for Guac that you could make at home for no more than $5. Other than the small portions and the high price, I had no other issues.

    Not a grand hello when our party entered the restaurant. We actually asked the guac maker upfront if our table was ready (thinking she was the hostess). Ambience at NYC Rosa blows Miami away. Food was good. Server was ok. They should warn people about their floors. Each girl in our party almost wiped out at least twice.

    We enjoyed the place and food. We sat out side with my puppy which was very nice. The only reason why I was disappointed on the service was because it was my mothers bday. I had made the reservation online and noted it under special requests. When I arrived there I confirmed with the hostess that they got the message and she said yes, that they usually just put a candle on top of some dessert or something so I though ok that's nice that will make her feel special and being that mom loves sweets. However, they never did anything special for her I didn't even order her dessert since she said they would bring something out with a candle for her bday. We kept waiting and waiting I thought oh maybe when he brings back the check, but no. :(

    DouganandaVIP
    Dined on 9/29/2012
    This stylish New York City transplant was one of the first US restaurants to focus on genuinely authentic Mexican cuisine, as distinct from the more familiar Tex-Mex commonly offered. The formula of this now coast-to-coast high end chain is a festive rather glamorous decor with very good food and EXCELLENT made-to-order-table side guacamole. The drinks are strong and the crowd loud. It's fun for all age groups,.

    This is an exceptional restaurant -- I picked it for my birthday dinner! The food is imaginative, and flawlessly prepared. The table-side guacamole can't be missed! If I was pressed for a criticism, it would be that it can get somewhat noisy, but that is unavoidable in a restaurant of this popularity.

    A bad experience. Although the staff is friendly their service skill could use some improvement. The place has changed since our previous visit. The food took for ever and they brought out the wrong dishes when the food arrived. One had to ask for water, ice, water was warm, they took for ever. Very few places I have gone to that left without tipping.

Very big portions and good quality. They brought the appetizers and main dishes at the same time to our table which created a bit of confusion and shortage of space.

    Guacamole was made fresh at table in a volcanic stone mortar. It had a good, fresh taste (they use Haas avocados, but I've had better. Chicken enchiladas and cheese fondue with chorizos were both quite tasty, and the fish tacos were delicious. Dessert (tried both cinnamon/coffee flan & plantain torte w/chocolate) was good, but not exceptional. All in all, a good place to go on a Sunday afternoon with friends.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 7/15/2012
    The 3 Rosa Mexicanos in NYC are absolutely fantastic; some of the best authentic Mexican food with a flair, but the Miami was severe lacking in comparison. The food was TERRIBLE. I went for brunch and the typically delicious guacamole had absolutely no taste due to poor quality of avocados and lack of seasoning. The mole was also horrific, too sweet, not spicy at all. I had eggs with pork belly, and the pork belly was literally only fat. I know it's a fatty meat, but it should have SOME meat. I would never come back to this place
