They served a lovely Mothers'They served a lovely Mothers' Day brunch, complete with face painting for kids and a small box of chocolates for mom.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMlike a good friendDining here has become a tradition during visits to the city. Consistently good food (and drinks) and great location, especially for events at Lincoln Center.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways A Great ExperienceWe were a party of 6 and there was a mix up within the group on what time the reservations were. They held the table for over 1/2 hour until most of the party arrived. Didn't have any trouble and the staff was very accommodating and nice. Food was excellent and the served hot and as specified. Highly recommended.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGuacamole--THE BEST! PorkGuacamole--THE BEST! Pork shank--outstanding! Huge portions.
We loved our meal!! Waiter charming!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMRosa Mexicano is PERFECT!The food was exceptional - absolutely everything from appetizer to dessert. The wait service was outstanding, the evening was perfect. LOVED IT!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat before performances!!!Couldn't have been more perfect; service was so appreciated to make a Ballet performance on time.....skinny margaritas delicious!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelighted Yet AgainHaving been to Rosa Mexicana a year ago, we decided to come back for some excellent gourmet Mexican fare, and were not disappointed. Our reservation was a smart idea, since this remains a hot spot. Quacamole made to our liking at the table with refreshing specialty drinks began the lovely evening. The fish special drew our attention and it was cooked perfectly. If you're not a fan of hotter spices, they are happy to tone it down or put sauces on the side. The exotic variety of sorbets and ice creams was a light and tasty end to an excellent dinner. We were delighted yet again!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food !you can't beat the guacamole here. or the service. and i had ceviche, which was nice, but a little too much truffle oil. i'm sure i'm in the minority on that. and the coffee is great too !5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMexican HeavenI thought I died and went to Mexican Heaven!
It was Cinco de Mayo and fun was in the air with great food, great service, and great music!

Rosa Mexicano is fun, good food, good service and good drinks. So, If we cannot think of another place to go, Rosa Mexicano is our standby.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good except for the dessertsThis was my third time having dinner at the Columbus Avenue location and each time has been enjoyable. Their "made to order" guacamole is best in town and their food, as well as the dining experience, is always very good. My only complaint is their dessert menu, which needs to be totally revamped...No Bueno.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere conducive to conversatioAtmosphere conducive to conversation while enjoying excellent beverage and food selection.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding ...

The guacamole was great, the other food very good. We spent a leisurely two hour dinner with no pressure to rush.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAlthough not at the top ofAlthough not at the top of my list for great Mexican food, Rosa Mexicano has quite a few dishes that are sure to please. The made at your table guac is a must have, plus you can customize it (no salt..extra tomato for example).4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful atmosphere, superb staff.My Mother and sister absolutely loved it and commented mid-meal that they would definitely return. The staff are all very friendly and professional, the decor is beautiful, the space is very accomodating, the chairs are comfy and you just can't beat the proximity to Lincoln Center. I have nothing negative to say about this establishment.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMRosa Mexicano Restaurant isRosa Mexicano Restaurant is a place to go, if you love Mexican food, great service and good ambiance.

Warm inviting atmosphere. Attentive wait staff. Also the ability to seperate family diners from romantic diners (we have been both) without making us feel like second class citizens. Extra points for that! The Duck appetizer was among our favorite finds this visit, and the sangria and tres leche cake are among the best we've ever had. Of course don't forget the fresh guacamole!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI keep returning to Rosa forI keep returning to Rosa for my own eating enjoyment and to bring more first-timers with me, as I did this Wednesday. It's always a pleasure to be there4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific lunch- all aaround-Terrific lunch- all aaround- food and drinks- we almost did't want to leave but we had tickets and had to go. We were never rushed and relaxed with good service.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTremendous Mexican food on UWSIf given a chance to choose Mexican for lunch in NYC, Rosa Mexicano is the place to go. But, if given the choice of WHICH location, certainly go to the West Side restaurant at Lincoln Center.
It is bright, cheery, with a tremendous view. AND, the food is tremendous. The guacamole (made table-side) is tasty, and the margaritas are A-one.
The ONLY negative (if can call it that) attribute is that, if you come here looking for the typical Mexican fare of tacos, tamales, burritos, chimichangas, etc., you won't find it. Yes, there are three different types of enchiladas (and they are great), but the menu is more of an up-scale Mexican fare. It is filling; it is tasty; it is up-scale.
I keep coming back because it is so good.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my second time diningThis is my second time dining at Rosa Mexicano; the first vist being in Union Square. I enjoyed my experience at the Linoln Center location. The food was delicious and the waitstaff was excellent. My party actually arrived an hour earlier than our reservtion and they tried to accommodate us . Will definitely visit agin.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRosa Mexicano ALWAYS getsRosa Mexicano ALWAYS gets it right. Service: check!

Even the couple on the next table to ours, commented on how loud they were. It was hard
to have a conversation. Maybe a good idea not to sit couples next to these big tables/4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Mexican restaurant northBest Mexican restaurant north of the border!

Period.What is better than a Rosa Mexicano pomegranate margarita? Nothing I can think of. We always have a great experience here.
