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

- get the guacamoleOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 2/6/2013Had a good meal. The guacamole made table side really is excellent - would recommend it. Our other dishes were not as great. I had carne asada which was very good. My partners slow cooked pork was a bit dry and not such a success. I would definitely go back however, maybe at lunch time to have the guacamole again and a smaller snack.Special Features:
- SoBe's Finest Dining ExperienceSteveVIPDined on 1/28/2013RM continues to be the best dining experience in South Beach. Creative culinary dishes coupled with the best service I've experienced in South Florida made for a delightful evening. Out waitress, María, was attentive, knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. I am proud to call RM my favorite restaurant.Special Features:
- If everything was as foodkingbVIPDined on 1/12/2013If everything was as food as the guacamole, this restaurant would be 5 star, but the service is apallingly lax and slow, the food was only just good and so we were disappointed. I've had much better meals at their Brickell Village location.Special Features:
- The fish tacos, guac and margaritasOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 1/12/2013The fish tacos, guac and margaritas were delicious. The service was just OK. We had to find someone to wait on our table. We were ignored for the first 10 minutes, and the restaurant was only 1/4 full when we arrived. The staff were not very welcoming, but the food made it worthwhile.
- Great food ! They make theMichelleDined on 1/11/2013Great food ! They make the guacamole table side, which was really cool to watch. Our server was very knowledgeable of the food and of all yhe types of tequila, and made great recommendations. Fantastic place! Definitely need a reservation though, as it gets quite packed.Special Features:

- Good food, but many flawsOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 12/30/2012The music was much too loud. It was bad techno-pop and inappropriate for dinner. Turning down the volume would help; having to raise your voice to be heard by the person across the table was a big turn-off. Service was inattentive and slow. Menu is limited, but there are good choices. Guacamole made at tableside is excellent, but be prepared for really small portions. Thinking that an order of three tacos would be substantial proved wrong. They were actually an appetizer size for $17. Food is good, but definitely overpriced, even for South Beach.Special Features:
- Fabulous but be sure host checks inSteveVIPDined on 12/30/2012Rosa Mexicano continues to be my favorite Mexican restaurant in Miami. My guest and I were very happy with our meals and service.The only recommendation I would make is to make sure the host /hostess signs in Open Table members. I was surprised to find that I received a "no show" email from OT even though I had asked the host to check me in.Special Features:

- More like Rosa MexigotyouOpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 12/25/2012Very disappointed with everything at this venue. From the taste of the food, to the prices charged, to the loud disorganized way it is run I can not recommend this place. Many better places to choose from in Sobe.
- So so Mexican foodCatherineDined on 12/7/2012So so Mexican food, mole drowned enchilada, no or very little crab meet, plenty of open tables even though it said it was the only time open for RSVP, the place was empty an s remained empty an hour and a half later...obviously pushing dinners into early reservation spots. Wouldn't go back.Special Features:
- Why would a server bring outemceeVIPDined on 12/6/2012Why would a server bring out our table's entrees at the same time as the appetizers? In Miami, nobody cares. Perhaps they do it better back in New York.
- The food was excelent as alwaysOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 11/28/2012The food was excelent as always but what stood out was the friendliness of the staff.Special Features:

- Magnificent Mexican MagicSteveVIPDined on 11/11/2012Rosa continues to be my favorite Mexican restaurant not only in South Beach but in all of Miami. The food is exceptional and the service is impeccable. My guests from Brazil were very happy with their culinary experience.Special Features:
- RM The Best: Hands Down & Forks UpSteveVIPDined on 10/30/2012RM continues to be our favorite restaurant in Miami Beach. The food is always fresh, colorful and creative. Service is unparalleled by any other establishment in the area, and the dining experience is always extremely pleasant. Congratulations to Deb for excellent management and to Ivan for his stellar service as our waiter.Special Features:
- The food and the service wasOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/20/2012The food and the service was great. The only thing I didn't like was that it was too expensive for the little bit of food they bring out. They charge $14 for Guac that you could make at home for no more than $5. Other than the small portions and the high price, I had no other issues.Special Features:
- Look elsewhere for dinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 10/19/2012Since they changed the menu a few months ago, this place has gone way downhill. There are a ton of fantastic restaurants in SoBe.....eat at those, instead.
- This place is great. The staffOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 10/12/2012This place is great. The staff is very nice and helpful, they have a large variety of Gluten Free items.Special Features:
- Miami Rosa- I'd go back againOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 10/7/2012Not a grand hello when our party entered the restaurant. We actually asked the guac maker upfront if our table was ready (thinking she was the hostess). Ambience at NYC Rosa blows Miami away. Food was good. Server was ok. They should warn people about their floors. Each girl in our party almost wiped out at least twice.
- We enjoyed the place and food.OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/30/2012We enjoyed the place and food. We sat out side with my puppy which was very nice. The only reason why I was disappointed on the service was because it was my mothers bday. I had made the reservation online and noted it under special requests. When I arrived there I confirmed with the hostess that they got the message and she said yes, that they usually just put a candle on top of some dessert or something so I though ok that's nice that will make her feel special and being that mom loves sweets. However, they never did anything special for her I didn't even order her dessert since she said they would bring something out with a candle for her bday. We kept waiting and waiting I thought oh maybe when he brings back the check, but no. :(Special Features:
- This stylish New York CityDouganandaVIPDined on 9/29/2012This stylish New York City transplant was one of the first US restaurants to focus on genuinely authentic Mexican cuisine, as distinct from the more familiar Tex-Mex commonly offered. The formula of this now coast-to-coast high end chain is a festive rather glamorous decor with very good food and EXCELLENT made-to-order-table side guacamole. The drinks are strong and the crowd loud. It's fun for all age groups,.Special Features:
- Food was average at best.mediocreVIPDined on 9/29/2012Food was average at best. It is in a very nice location, great for a casual outing.Special Features:
- Food was good. I think dishesOpenTable Diner Since 2012VIPDined on 9/25/2012Food was good. I think dishes need an extra kick to make them outstanding. The service was quite good. The restaurant at Brickell seems to have better prepared dishes and a more vibrant atmosphere. Next time I'm in the area, I will probably be back if I am craving tacos.
- Top Quality RestaurantSteveVIPDined on 9/22/2012Creative, excellent culinary delights combined with fantastic, efficient service.Special Features:
- One of my favorites!OpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 9/15/2012This is an exceptional restaurant -- I picked it for my birthday dinner! The food is imaginative, and flawlessly prepared. The table-side guacamole can't be missed! If I was pressed for a criticism, it would be that it can get somewhat noisy, but that is unavoidable in a restaurant of this popularity.Special Features:
- A bad experienceGreatVIPDined on 9/13/2012A bad experience. Although the staff is friendly their service skill could use some improvement. The place has changed since our previous visit. The food took for ever and they brought out the wrong dishes when the food arrived. One had to ask for water, ice, water was warm, they took for ever. Very few places I have gone to that left without tipping.
- Great food, friendly service,OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/9/2012Great food, friendly service, affordable, we all had a jolly timeSpecial Features:
- It was nice to finally visitOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/7/2012It was nice to finally visit a rosa Mexicano. Wish the entrees were better. Table side guacamole and crispy tacos were good as well as the pomegranate margarita. The entrees on the table.. Vegetable enchilada and shrimp over rice we're ok, nothing spectacular and actually too much citrus. Would go back for drinks and apps.Special Features:
- The table prepared guacamolejetset305Dined on 9/3/2012The table prepared guacamole is delicious! Great entree and drinks selection. Service provided by Amber was TOP NOTCH!!! Good value for your money. Definitely going back soon.Special Features:
- We were v disappointed withOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/29/2012We were v disappointed with our food except the guacamole which was fantastic. Our main meal was bland & tasteless, and not worth what we paid for the meal.Special Features:
- The quality of food was notOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/28/2012The quality of food was not as good as what I have had during restaurant week in NYC. Not so much the size of the meal, but the actual meal itself. TheTortilla soup in NYC was so much better as well as the fish tacos, they looked like frozen fish fingers.
- Hi Host was not at herOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/22/2012Hi Host was not at her post. Took lomger than 5 mins to greet us Guacamole perfect Service ok Tecate old. Flat. Almost room temperature Chicken enchiladas were flavory but were served warm. Even the mole sauce. Re-ordered and server graciously brought new plate. Mole sauce very good. Perfect blend of chile spice , chocolate and fruity Still 2nd meal was not hot enough Good ambiance Rate overall average Not as as good as previous experience. May not recommend again Regards
- OutstandingOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/20/2012Outstanding food and service. At lunch the place was vey quiet because no many customers around but I could imagine at dinner with possibly outstanding ambiance as well. Very big portions and good quality. They brought the appetizers and main dishes at the same time to our table which created a bit of confusion and shortage of space. The check is compliant with the quality of the food, service and ambiance.Special Features:
- Guacamole was made fresh atMarcDined on 8/19/2012Guacamole was made fresh at table in a volcanic stone mortar. It had a good, fresh taste (they use Haas avocados, but I've had better. Chicken enchiladas and cheese fondue with chorizos were both quite tasty, and the fish tacos were delicious. Dessert (tried both cinnamon/coffee flan & plantain torte w/chocolate) was good, but not exceptional. All in all, a good place to go on a Sunday afternoon with friends.Special Features:
- Food was delicious and theLizKDined on 8/1/2012Food was delicious and the waiter was great! So was the lady that did the guacamole! I would highly recommed to go if you're in the South beach area!!Special Features:

I was disappointed with the beans, but happy with the rest! She definitely brought her high class skills as a server from her previous place of employmentSpecial Features:
