Diner Reviews
  • "Staff was really good from the front desk to the server. Not as hard to get a table on Friday night as you'd expect. Cocktail prices are a bit high"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This upscale Mexican restaurant is well worth your time. I love the diverse menu. My choice was the grilled shrimp entree and it was excellent. We also had the guacamole appetizer for the first time. Rosa Mexicano prepares this dish tableside to your specifications. What a treat ! I could have made a meal of it. Our server was excellent and allowed us to enjoy our meal at a leisurely pace."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "There was not much to choose from and many of the selections were over priced. The resturant didn't even offer a margarita in a pitcher! However their house margatria was expensive for the shot glass amount given!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We have always found the food at Rosa Mexicano to be excellent. We come in from Kennesaw because it is worth the drive. There are other options closer to us or along the way, but none are even half as good as Rosa Mexicano. The service is always good but then again, we have a tendency to go early in the dinner hour so that might be why. The food has never disappointed. The prices are a little higher than their competitors but worth it. I find the food less Tex Mex than most local spots and much more authentic to true Mexican fare."

  • "Everything was great, couldn't have been better. Service, food, atmosphere was amazing and romantic. It made our Valentine's day! I will be going back, not just for special occasions either. It's hard to beat fresh Guacamole made in front of you."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I was a little hesitant to dine here since the food is more on the sophisticated side of Mexican food, but I had the chicken tacos and they were out of this world delicious!! The table side guacamole is amazing as well!!"
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "Food was good, specials were as advertised. Crowded and rushed. A server constantly walking around and calling out staus of each table. Food was good. Service was quick. Probably better on non weekend nite."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The guacamole is always great. Carnitas were also very good."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My Valentine and I had a reservation for Valentine's Day evening so we only ordered dessert. The service was phenomenal despite it being a busy night. The food was very tasty (we ordered gluten-free chocolate cake and churros). We enjoyed the ambience (low lighting and classical guitar player). The price was appropriate."

  • "We had a 7:45 p.m. reservation on Saturday night. There were quite a few people waiting for a table when we got there. However, as soon as we got their we were seating immediately. The service was excellent, the waitress was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. The dishes we ordered were tasty and the shrimp were cooked to perfection. There were several large parties there which made it somewhat noisy. However, the overall experience was very good, and I would definitely go back there again."

  • "Excellent, authentic Mexican menu. Detailed service with a warm and friendly attitude. We enjoyed every minute of our meal."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Great ambience for a romantic evening. Good music, good food, and very good service that makes for a very nice dinner for two."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "For the price of the food I felt it could've tasted better... It was all too salty and my waitress was not very attentive. But the restaurant was beautiful and in a prime location."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Food and service was wonderful. Only complaint is that the beautiful waterfall was not working and looked like it had been that way for awhile."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "I went for the 1st time this past weekend for a girl's night .The menu was extremely limiting and just overall boring. Nothing on there really interested me at all so I just ordered basic chicken tacos.They were awful! No flavor, overcooked vegetables, and just plain bad. I would have to say the best thing seemed to be the chips and salsa, although the chips were a little too salty for my taste. Although no one commented on the food, I really don't believe any of my friends liked their food either, as we all took only a few bites and then got to go boxes, which is still sitting in my fridge. One friend did have the pomegranate margarita, which she said was excellent. I wouldn't go back again just for chips and salsa and a margarita."

  • "Rosa Mexicana is one of our go-to places when in Atlanta. It never fails to please. The food was great. Guacamole was excellent. Drinks were well-mixed. A great selection of tequilas."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I went with a party of 4 for brunch. (11:30-3) We had all ordered different items, we all enjoyed our entrees. The guacamole is addictive, so don't say I didn't warn you! They even have a gluten free menu! Our server was attentive and friendly. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "Great drinks. Love the table-side, fresh guacamole. Menu is a bit different from other Mexican restaurants."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Our family frequents Rosa Mexicano and have eaten there for many New Years Eve dinners. However, this past NYE was terrible! The menu was a "Limited Menu" and cheesy disco music was loudly played!!! We don't expect this from an upscale Mexican restaurant. The service was also very under par compared to past experiences."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Our only real complaint was the DJ dance music was loud for the dinner setting. Otherwise, it was a fun NYE experience and the 4-course menu was very good. Although we could have sworn we were told the champagne toast was included in the $40pp cost and it wasn't..."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Came here on NYE for dinner with a couple of friends that haven't been here before. One friend who doesn't even like avocados LOVED the guacamole made table side--I think we have a convert. Another friend kept going on an on about her lobster ceviche and my little tacos were yummy though I was thrown a curve when they were served cold (they should indicate this on the menu). But overall, it was a good dining experience, my friends really liked the ambiance of the restaurant and there was definitely talk of coming back in the warmer months so we could eat on the patio."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We have eaten at Rosa Mexicano several times and are never disappointed. The food is very upscale Mexican and the service is first rate. Our table was by the window so that we could watch the ice skaters next door. All the lively activity, the holiday lights and the good food made for a very fun evening out for my party of five."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Table side guacamole preparation is amazing! Chicken tortilla pie was good too. We all enjoyed a wonderful lunch that was not too hurried, but got us back to shopping quickly."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "The food was good - not outstanding, but I was satisfied with my meal and ate everything (minus the two bay leaves left in my enchiladas). The service was really bad. I think they had a larger crowd than expected, but that doesn't excuse the poor service. I was disappointed in this aspect of the meal, and it will likely prevent me from coming back."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "Best Guacamole in the city! However, we were extremely disappointed in the "Tablones/Slow-Braised Short Ribs". They were as tough as leather and not eaten. The only reason I keep going is to enjoy the guacamole!"
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "this some of the best Mexican food I have ever had."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Took my veggie parents from out of town here for dinner. Delicious drinks, attentive service, beautiful decor. The table side guac was a pleaser, but came out w not quite enough salt & we wished for some lime wedges to squeeze on top. Everyone liked their food, but overall a bit pricey considering the menu has standard tacos, skillet fajitas etc."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "Nice spot to gather with friends for Guac and Drinks. The Guac is Excellent!!!"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "There were six of us. All three couples have 2 kids each. We all had baby sitters for the night. We also made a dinner reservation. Upon arrival we were not asked for our reservation and just immediately sat in the unflattering back Kiddy Room. When I asked why since we did not have our kids with us, the hostess replied "Cause There are 6 of you". What? I asked if we could sit in the main dining room like normal people and finally they moved us to one of the 6 open tables on the main floor. Food and service made up for the mishap until the waiter auto-grated our check. Its too bad because we are all 20% tippers. He left money on the table that night. No manager table visit or anything to make our night special. Not surprising at Atl. Stat."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "We decided to do Rosa's on Friday night on our way downtown. As always it was fantastic! The service was extra special this time as they were very on top of our son's peanut allergy. This was his first time dining at Rosa's and we weren't sure how well they accommodated for severe allergies. We were extremely pleased with the attention they gave it. Awesome food and service!"
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "My wife and I made a reservation for 10:30 PM after a long movie. Rosa Mexicano is in Atlantic Station, close to a large cinema complex and many others things. We were not terribly hungry, but wanted to sample several small plates. There were many to choose from. We had crab empanadas, large caesar salad, tortilla soup and 3 duck tacos. It was all very tasty and about the right amount of food, although we took home half of the salad. They have great margaritas! We each had two: she had the Classico and I had the Unica. We had to wait several minutes to find a waiter to order the second round. There was a large family celebrating a wedding seated next to us, but it was never too noisy."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Didn't know we were getting there at crazy busy rush time (tree lighting). I hate Atlantic Station already but the crowd made it worse. Three of our party of five were nearly an hour late but they worked us in admirably. Rosa's amazing sangria mellowed me out nicely. Service was understandably slow but the meal was stellar."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "We decided to do Atlanta for the evening at the last minute. I made reservations here via Open Table. We arrived two minutes late due to not knowing how to park quickly at Atlantic Station. We were seated immediately, the service was spot on, and the food was really fresh, tasty, the right temperature, and just plain good. We took dessert at the bar because we wanted to catch the end of an exciting game. Our server easily accommodated our wish and then we headed out for the rest of our evening. It was a fun dinner. My date asked, "Why can't all Mexican restaurants be this good?""
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "Although the food doesn't knock my socks off the way it used to, we still love Rosa. Used to eat at the NYC shops when daughter lived up there. Margaritas still good - quality tequila and a generous amount of it, consistent flavor and not too sweet. Entrees offer very large portions and we shared a plate. Not a ton of choice for vegetarians. And of course the guacamole is always outstanding!"
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "The restaurant has a dramatic, but pleasant décor. The salsa was rather spicy, but not over the edge. The making of the guacamole at the table was a nice touch. My food tasted good and was rather spicy. I felt that the portion of 2 enchiladas was too small--it should have been three. I was hard to figure out how to find Stairwell 11--we drove around the parking lot for 12-15 minutes before finding it. Nice waitress."
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "We were able to be seated and served right away, great for a quick business lunch. The lunch special provided an excellent sampling of what the restaurant has to to offer. Will definitely come back for dinner."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "Very expensive for what you actually get. Just because it comes in small portions and has a pretty presentation, doesn't mean you can attach a high price tag!"
    Dined on 2/23/2013
  • "Will never return again. Server was constantly not available. Our food arrived after an hour. Manager never came to our table to apologize. The guacamole guy was rude - always disregarded our requests."
    Dined on 10/25/2013
  • "over all it is always a nice place to eat. I think it is over priced on certain items. Food could be better, but its definetly is not bad. Guacamole is the best thing."
    Dined on 10/26/2013
  • "Kind of an overpriced mexican restaurant. Food was good but not outstanding. The place is beautiful and great place to people watch in Atlantic Station. The Guacamole was outstanding, and made fresh in front of you. The entree's were good but not any large size. Kind of overpriced for portion size. The Mango margarita was outstanding!"
