A word from Rosa Mexicano - Brickell
Our Florida location is in downtown Miami at Mary Brickell Village. The restaurant’s design creates a festive environment with bold, vibrant colors and features a tortilla-making station in the dining room as well as a dynamic 15-foot water wall with a legion of Acapulco cliff diver figurines. The outdoor bar and lounge offers an oasis in the middle of downtown, complete with a front row seat to the emerging neighborhood's activity. Whether you’re dining inside or out, the experience is exclusively Rosa Mexicano.

    Fresh guacamole to start is always a favourite, but the 'special' fresh guacamole ice cream to finish was inspired and interesting - very unusual and really grew on me.

    The food was the worst part of our night is too over-priced and the quality was is not good. They surprise you with the guac which is 26 dollars but the rest of the food they serve doesn't match up to the price. Not going to this restaurant again.

    - This is not street-stand taco deliciousness, nor is it high brow cuisine. Rosa Mexicana fits somewhere in between. - Service is attentive, but there's a clearly a disconnect somewhere. Out of the dozen or so times I've been making sure to ask for "no sour cream" I'd honestly estimate that 80% of the time my meal comes with the stuff slathered on top anyway. It's to the point where I pretend that I forgot I already told the server 2-3x times to not put sour cream on any of the dishes when ordered. It's awkward, but not as awkward as turning away the kitchen runner immediately for the 8th time. - Food is solid. - A bit pricey for what it is, but there's not any great alternative.

    Service was very good until the end, then our waiter became scarce (perhaps assigned too many tables). The food was unique and quite good (not extraordinary) until dessert--which was undercooked, doughie churros. When we told them about it, they were quite quick at making amends (brought an alternate dessert and comped coffee). They had a Valentines Day Prix Fixe which included a good variety and ample portions. We thought it was a little cheeky that they suspended their normal happy hour which was advertised on-line and by menus on the tables in the bar (we arrived early just to have a happy hour cocktail). They removed the menus after they refused us happy hour drinks--poor show. All in all a pleasant experience and we would go back.

    Service was extremely poor - long waits for drinks, food order, water and chip refills, etc. despite restaurant being less than 1/4 occupied. Witnessed several instances of staff socializing in groups of 7 or 8 while customers were waiting for attention. Food about what you'd expect at a strip mall Mexican chain restaurant. Disappointing. Salsa and "fresh" guacamole basically tasteless. Got charged for a double order of guacamole when bowl brought to table was 1/2 full. Guacamole was presented with large chunks of avocado and un-chopped cilantro leaves. Management needs to seriously counsel their staff on what customer service means. Avoid this location.

    We tried to test out the best on the menu. So we ordered Ribs and Pork shank - and both came out excellent. Also noted were drinks - once we instructed the waiter how we wanted our drinks they came out exactly as requested. Key here is to make sure you instruct waiter/waitress as to how you want your food, spicy, drinks well done, etc.... and that's how it will show up. If you fail you cannot complain about the restaurant

    My wife and I are in Miami on vacation visiting family with our children, and we were able to get a Date Night. We chose Rosa Mexicano - figuring the fresh tableside guacamole and awesome pomegranate margaritas would be perfect. We enjoyed the margaritas, guacamole, and we had the steak tacos and chicken tacos for entrees. We enjoyed sitting outside, and the service was wonderful. We'd love to go back! Thanks.

    We had the steak tacos, they are presented very nicely on a plate with sauces and melted cheese and onions. Rice and black refried beans on the side. You build your tacos with soft tortilla's. Food tasted good but way too salty. We ordered the white wine sangria and it was great. I had to return the Pomegranate margarita and it was very sour...had to return it.
