Rosa Mexicano- Minneapolis
A great Mexican restaurantMy friend and I ate at the Minneapolis restaurant. The guacamole (with chips) made tableside, rice and beans were all excellent. I had the chicken enchilada dinner which was excellent except that I would have preferred less fresh onion on the top. My friend had the fascinating salmon dinner Mexican style which she enjoyed, but said the salmon had a slight fishy smell, and there should be no fishy smell to truly fresh fish. Overall, the menu items were a great selection and I would return for additional dining experiences. Suggestion: Add one or two additional options for frozen margaritas--not just the trendy pomegranite which is not my choice.

Loved the food, the service was great, staff made sure that we got out in time to make it to our show.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExemplary ServiceThe service was the best I've seen in Mpls in years. At our table everything was correct and served at a perfect pace. Drinks arrived quickly so as to accompany the food. The manager stopped to check on things. The chef sent us a couple empanadas to start the evening.
At the table next to us, a woman's steak was too done. They brought her AND HER DINING PARTNER a new meal so they could eat together!! Who does that? Great service. The chef even came out and apologized for her first plate.
We will return gladly. Go!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Rosa!We have dined here many times and the food is outstanding! Decor is beautiful and I'm sure it's fun to sit outside when the weather cooperates. The service was great. Highly recommended!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceWe dined during happy hour and there were some great items on the menu. Really enjoyed the pitcher of margaritas!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Mexican Food - evenFantastic Mexican Food - even though it's a bit more "upscale," it's not pretentious and is still immediately accessible for people like me (who don't know much about Mexican food outside what's dished out in the dives where the menu is numbered 1 to 120). Service is always amazing, no complaints ever. Thanks always!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Very GoodRosa gets my vote for best Mexican restaurant in the TC. The food is always well prepared, creative and delicious. The service takes it over the top. I had the good fortune of being taken care of Josh. Josh is very knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and hard working. Rosa truly proves that you get what you pay for.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique Mother's day brunchWe visited Rosa Mexicano on Mother's day. We had a very pleasant and unique brunch. It was even better than the high expectations we had going in.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGuac!Best guacamole in the Tein Cities made table side. Order the prom shank - slow cooked, falling off the bone and put it inside corn tortillas with pico! Pomegranate Margueritas ate 'frozen'. Love the water pools and walls. Beautiful restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGet the table side guacamole.Get the table side guacamole. It was the best guacamole I've ever had.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was good, but tooThe waiter was good, but too busy, so service was slower than I would have liked. It was a little pricey for lunch, but we were treating a client so it was okay.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had funI has three customers with me. We wanted to experience something differrent, and sure we did. Service was excellent, and extremely fast. Food was tasty, although I exprected food to be more spicy.
Everyone love their food so dinner was success.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but priceyThe food, drink and ambience was good but not sure it was quite worth the premium prices. See it as an occasional dining choice but not a regular dining choice. The service was excellent and accommodating. We would go back but not real soon.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ambience! Great Food!This is a great place to eat if you love Mexican food! Good food, good service, great place to hang out with friends. Must try the guacamole!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice PlacelWe enjoyed our dinner, the homemade guac was delicious and fun to watch it made at the table. Great service our server new the the specials and had good suggestions.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMNot your typical "americanize"Not your typical "americanize" mexican food. Seemed authentic and unique. For those of you who typical revel in tons of cheese all over your mexican food, you will be disappointed, since these dishes were prepared as they should be! No pound of melted greasy cheese all over everything-yeah! Great atomosphere inside and out. Prices a bit high but quality cuisine-so expected.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceExcellent food and service although a bit over priced.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat scallop tacos. I tastedGreat scallop tacos. I tasted my nephew's beef ribs and they were outstanding.
Always consistently very good.
I highly recommend visiting if you enjoy delicious Mexican food in a great atmosphere served by a very efficient wait staff.
P.S. I miss the tres leche desert.
Dan Jacobson4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was of exceptional tastefood was of exceptional taste along with a waiter who gave excellent advise4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only criticism I haveThe only criticism I have is that when the server packed up our leftovers in to go boxes, he did not include the leftover sauce that was on the plate. When we got home and wanted to eat our leftovers, we discovered that all I had in my box were the short ribs. No sauce. So unfortunately I only got to eat one short rib with the delicious sauce. Personally I feel like the sauce is typically the best part of the dish. Teach your servers to scrape the plates.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceGreat food, great service and amazing ambiance
Make sure to try their home-made quac it is to die for. We had a business meeting here and they were able to easily accommodate us and provide a semi quite area
Can't wait to go back there.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMTable-side prepared guacamoleTable-side prepared guacamole is a must! Small margarita's - but has options with only 158 calories and tasted great! Drinks expensive. Big tab for just a moderate dinner.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMRosa Mexicano is way above average.This was our first time dining at Rosa Mexicano and we had a wonderful time. The service we received from Dillon was excellent and the food was superb! We will definitely return soon.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good restaurantGood experience. I had the hanger steak...very good. My wife had the pork which she proclaimed to be excellent. I can back that up because I had it for leftovers the next day. The Guacamole is superb...do not go to this restaurant without ordering it. Drinks were expensive and a disappointment. Service was fast but not very attentive. Our wait person asked me 4 times if I wanted a second drink but failed to keep the water glasses filled. Overall...not the best Mexican restaurant we've been to but very good. Undoubtedly, the most expensive Mexican restaurant. $110 for 2 people with tip and one drink each. Close to Target Center and Target Field.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy teenage daughters and IMy teenage daughters and I were going to Flashdance and wanted a nice dinner before the show. Rosa Mexicano did not disappoint in food quality or service. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. My daughters had not been to the restuarant before so the waiter took extra time to go through the food items as well as the dessert menu. The girls loved the decor as well as the continuous full glass of water. The restruant is expensive but, for a special treat, it was well worth it.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a birthday dinner thereHad a birthday dinner there with my husband and 17 year old twins. They LOVED it!!! My daughter doesn't usually like guacamole, but she tried it freshly made and really liked it. Everything was excellent. The fish tacos were great, as well as the salmon with black beans and the beef tenderloin medallions. AWESOME! They did not disappoint!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite of oursThird time we've dined there while staying downtown Minneapolis. Service is exceptional, decor is beautiful, food is very good, margeritas actually have an ample amount of tequila in them. I like consistency and that's what you get with Rosa Mexicana.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Tequila & Guacamole!Had a great time at Rose Mexicano. The table-side guacamole is a must-super fresh and delicious! Margaritas were fabulous, with a Tequila menu for your "shot" pleasure. Our server, Megan, was great and had a good knowledge of the Tequilas they offer.
Food was good, although I thought my pork shank came with the spinach/mushroom side and I missed that on my plate! Refried beans were amazing! Chef popped out of the kitchen to chat with us about our meal. He had a great personality and was genuinely excited to talk to us about the food and brought out some tortillas to enjoy those refried beans! Great suggestion!
Overall a great beginning to a fun night. Put us in a good mood for the Mavericks at the Pantages! Coming back...4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a friend to lunch forTook a friend to lunch for her birthday. More expensive than your typical downtown restaurant for lunch - no real deals; Guac is $14 - but worth it!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday lunch, restaurant wasSunday lunch, restaurant was quiet. The food was prepared wonderfully, lovely fresh ingredients, service was impeccable. All ready have plans to return!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try if you love Mexican Food!!Great Food, Great Service as always. Took friends for the first time they all loved it, all said they'd return. Appitizers, entrees and desserts were all awesome.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was excellent!Our server was excellent! Our family of four came to celebrate my 50th birthday (two teenagers). The ceviche tacos appetizer was scheduled to come with 3 and he immediately told us he would bring four. The table side guacamole was perfect. My youngest son entertained the idea of mole enchiladas; our server described mole and then offered to have us try each of the sauces prior to ordering. GREAT SERVICE!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!!Rosa Mexicano is a must visit restaurant when in the twin cities area. The atmosphere is great, and the waitstaff is phenomenal. I visit whenever I am in the area. The Guacamole is a must have, made right at your table!! I have tried several entrees and am never disappointed, each one has had it's own unique flavor and tasted great!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time atThis was our first time at Rosa Mexicano and we were very impressed. The margaritas were excellent (and strong) and the specialty pomegranate margarita was a hit. The guacamole (prepared tableside) was outstanding. Some of our party had "traditional" fare, i.e., enchiladas, and the chef transformed them into something special. The red sauce on the cheese enchilada was of particular. One of our party had the pork shank and loved it. All in all, a terrific experience. We will definitely be back.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRosa Mexicano is awesome!I am a regualr diner with clients for l,unch at Rosa. The service food and ambience is terrific! Their tableside guacamole is cravable, and their short rib sandwich, mole enchiladas and pretty much everything is stellar! You will love this restaurant!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood overall experienceThis was a year end work outing lunch for 10 people. Service was good, the overall ambience was quite nice, especially given the time of season (winter) the decor & natural light made it feel much warmer then the outside air temp., and the food was good overall (the guac was excellent), except for the fish tacos that I orderred; the fish seemed to have come straigh out of a Gordon's Fisherman box - but everyone else seemed to thoroughly enjoy their dishes. So don't order the fish tacos and you should enjoy your meal.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
