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.Continued

- Great foodrezwoodDined on 12/26/2013The portions are large. Food is very good. Service was too. Nachos were the best I've had in a long time!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Skinny DiningSebpVIPDined on 12/19/2013Rosa Mexicano South Beach hits spot of great modern dining. We had Tacos - vegetarian and carnitas - and this was by far better than any street Mexican flavor - with the benefit of low calories. I counted, our vegetarian dish has about 20 or so ingredients. Presentation was 5 star stellar - and service impeccable. The wait staff was so attentive to our need for extra spices and explaining what we were eating. We've been dining at Rosa for well over 7 years and will never stop - thanks to their menu inventions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- all types of good.7544VIPDined on 11/29/2013Great food! Great drinks! Great service! What else can you ask for?Special Features:
- A pleasant evening!PhilCambridgeMADined on 11/28/2013While traveling in Miami Beach during Thanksgiving, we were hoping to find something a bit different and slightly upscale. Although part of a small chain, Rosa Mexicano felt like a locally-owned restaurant. The appetizers Flautas and Zarape de Pato were both excellent. We split the special: the turkey w/mole. The turkey was excellent, the mole (Puebla style) lacked zest. Of the two sides, the potatoes w/chorizo, was superb. The only weakness was that the waiter was poorly trained. We asked to have the appetizers 1st then the entree, but everything arrived together. He didn't know the prices. He never asked if everything was ok. But other than that, we will try Boston's branch of the chain.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The Best Gourmet Mexican Food in FLSteveVIPDined on 11/1/2013As is my custom, I take my most distinguished or dear guests to RM for lunch while they are visiting me in South Beach. Once again, R M managed to exceed my expectations with excellent service, wonderful, imaginative, delicious food, and beautiful ambience. My Guest was thrilled with the whole experience and left Miami Beach with a business card of what he now regards as one of the best Mexican meals he has ever enjoyed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, a little overpricedHarrisonVIPDined on 10/17/2013We eat here alot and will always go back, but it seems each time they raise the prices a little. The food is good but I think their current prices are stretching the limit. Its a good place to go for food and drinks with a group.Special Features:
- Rosa's Never DisappointslmelyussifDined on 9/22/2013We make sure to get our Rosa's fix whenever we are visiting Miami from Detroit. It's the perfect place to sit at the bar and socialize, as well as dine intimately with a group. They have the best skinny margarita, we love their fresh guacamole (we tend to order ours on the spicier side), and the carne asada is unreal. We've never had anything but exceptional service. Friendly bartenders, personable waitstaff, and great management. Clean, fresh, and conveniently located on Lincoln Road, so we can walk there from our hotel (any hotel in South Beach, really).Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Don't forget the guacamole!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 9/6/2013We ordered off the Miami Spice menu (offered certain times of the year). $33 per person and you get an appetizer and an entree and either a drink or dessert. Everyone ordered something different and we shared. The guacamole appetizer counts as two but it's worth it, made fresh at the table.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Food!636miamiDined on 8/28/2013Best Guacamole in Miami... Food quality was over my expectations, even margaritas are great. Location, ambient and service are good and at reasonable price, a place to have fun with friends,not exactly a place for business meeting...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Gluten free HEAVENBigMamaBakunDined on 8/15/2013So nice to have such varied options or a gluten free diet. My new favorite GF placeSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best guacamole, good drinksOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/15/2013Best guac we had ever eaten. Mixed right at t your table and the serving is huge. Stop with the guacamole because the entrees are not good. The drinks are great and the ambiance is fun.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- spicenikkimaDined on 8/14/2013Went for Miami Spice... overall decent lunch options. Sad they didn't have more chicken for entree choices... only a salad. Pomegranate margarita can't be missed! Guac was very good too!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- This restaurant was a realLuv2eatDined on 8/13/2013This restaurant was a real disappointment. The service was horrible, the waiter couldn't remember our order and came back to ask us 3 times for clarification (seriously, just write it down)! It took about 30 minutes to get each course including our drinks and the check. Our 8:30pm reservation didn't get us out of there until close to 11:00 pm. The food was "so so" not bad but nothing special. I would not reccomend this restaurant to anyone who wants a pleasant dining experience in a reasonable amount of time.
- Great for a GroupBLUEDined on 8/11/2013This Location is great for groups and a fun filled night, not very intimate but great fun and even better people watching outside.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- overratedlynn8166Dined on 8/9/2013Worst ceviche i've ever had. Expected way better in Miami. Slow service.Special Features:
- worst serviceCarlosCalderonDined on 7/20/20133rd time's the charm but the last 3 times i've tried to give this place a chance they manage to have even worstbservice than the time before. This time I had to get up to look for the waiter, there was no service and the attitude of the staff was at worst rude and at best nonchallant. unfortunately for the good food theynserve it seems they cant afford enough waiters and barte ders or just focus on choosing the worst. Very sad Rosa Mexicano that you decided to stick Mexico in your name!
- I always enjoy Rosa Mexicano,JosephDined on 6/15/2013I always enjoy Rosa Mexicano, it is in a great venue on the beach. I like that it's not too far from anywhere. walking on the Lincoln Road thoroughfare is nice, too.Special Features:
- Worst Service EVEROpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 6/12/2013We dined there on a slow Wednesday night at 8pm. After getting seated we were sitting there for over 15 minutes before someone came up to us. Once they took our order, our waiter then disappeared again. We were actually sat in a booth next to the bar so I motioned the bartender over to refill our drinks. The food was good although the medium Guacamole was not spicy at all. After the meal we waited around for another 15 minutes for our bill until finally we asked another waitress. Really disappointed with our experience here on Date Night.Special Features:
- The best mexican food in MiamiRauuuVIPDined on 5/19/2013The best guacamole you can eat in South Beach and the best margaritas in town...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice lunchOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 5/15/2013Perfect lunch for Lincoln road. Little noisy by Main Street. Veggie tacos a must! We enjoyed our lunchSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- An expensive Mexican restaurantRobBVIPDined on 5/14/2013I am pleased to see the changes that Rosa has made to their menu. Perhaps it's the South Beach menu alone, but the price point and menu are so far removed from Rosa's roots that it's now a special occasion restaurant vs. a regular favorite.I would recommend this to a friend.
- EXCELLENTRauuuVIPDined on 5/12/2013I LOVE THIS RESTAURANT. THE BEST GUACAMOLE I EVER TASTED...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It was just okay...Cin19Dined on 5/12/2013But I couldn't see what all the hype was about. I've had better Mexican food at better prices elsewhere. It's not bad, but I won't be going back. Also, a bit too loud and busy for my taste.
- Average-LornanDined on 5/11/2013While the guacamole was quite good (almost the best around), I found the rest of the meal rather average and the potions very small. I would go back for the "guac" and chips only.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- we loved the food and theOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/5/2013we loved the food and the wait staff was wonderful. especially tyreese. the noise level is quite loud, that would be the only negative about the experience. very lively and fun place. best guacamole made right in front of the tableSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Favorite Mexican Food!OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 4/26/2013We fell in love with Rosa Mexicano on the first visit, and have a great experience every time. The food is outstanding. We wish they'd open one closer to our home in the Philadelphia suburbs!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Birthday BrunchOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 4/5/2013We had brunch to celebrate my husband's birthday. Had a very nice time. The waitress was wonderful.Special Features:
- Improving after recent issuesRobBVIPDined on 3/28/2013I had written off Rosa after an interim menu change that left too few items at too high of a price point. However, the menu has improved dramatically and although I still find the prices to be too high, I would return to this restaurant and even recommend it with a warning about $15 margaritas that are the size of a sewing thimble. This just makes the restaurant look greedy and/or cheap. One other thing: the cold, sometimes stale chips that sit on the guacamole carts are such a disappointment and yet such an easy fix. Run them out warm from the kitchen. Even if they sit under a heat lamp, they'll taste better than they do now.
- Modern and Authentic Mexican FareOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 3/23/2013Great little spot in the middle of the Lincoln shopping district. The decor is lively and well-done - a mix of vibrant colors with a modern touch. The sangria was very good - we got the pitcher which was definitely more than enough for two people! The guacamole was fresh and prepared tableside. We had brunch, and the entrees were very authentic mexican cuisine, which I enjoyed very much. A nice change of pace from your regular tacos and tex-mex fare. The most outstanding thing, though, was their mexican hot chocolate! Now THIS is something to write home without. Folks, don't go here without saving some room for this one. Absolutely the best hot chocolate I've ever had - hearty and spicy, it's the perfect end to your meal.Special Features:
- Excellent food. A bit noisy,butOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/17/2013Excellent food. A bit noisy,but would go back for more.
- The food is good but the portionsOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 3/17/2013The food is good but the portions are ricuoulsy small.
- Amazing ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/10/2013Everyone should try this Brunch. Great frozen Margaritas! The food was delicious.Special Features:
- Food was good as usual. OurOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 3/9/2013Food was good as usual. Our server seemed a little clueless. Looked like he was new. Overall a nice guy but still needs training. We didn't even have a utensils on the table and had to ask multiple times.
- Top NotchOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 3/9/2013Absolutely fantastic. Literally will never go to South Florida again without going back. This is the first restaurant I have written a review about, and as a result I'm hungry again. Can't say enough.Special Features:
- Always good, anywhere you go...AiredaleVIPDined on 3/3/2013It's a great Mexican restaurant chain. It's not necessarily the most traditional, it's clearly an American Mexican restaurant. But the food is great, the service is great, and everyone should have a great time. If you're looking for something a little different in any major city and you don't want to take a chance on a local place, Rosa never disappoints.Special Features:
- Rosa Mexicano is a tourist trapOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/24/2013Making a reservation with the assistance of OpenTable was easy. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very good. The guacamole was prepared tableside, and was excellent. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating; but he overcharged our party, so I would not go back to this restaurant. To give examples: The waiter offered extra corn and frijoles for fish taco entrees that 2 guests requested, but he failed to mention that there would be an extra (and significant) charge for what should have been condiments. One guest at our table did not like her meal, so the waiter offered her a free dessert. He then charged for her dessert. He did it with a friendly attitude, so the bill and tip were paid without contesting, but we felt "fleeced".Special Features:
- Very weak sangria. Not worthSeafoodLoverDined on 2/16/2013Very weak sangria. Not worth the price. Food was fine.
- Good Food, good ambiance butOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 2/15/2013Good Food, good ambiance but the service no so great!!!Special Features:
- Great service bad foodOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 2/14/2013Very loud, not real Mexican food, felt more like a sushi place. Very overpriced. Servers were great though. Polite and attentive.
