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.

    We were pleansantly surprised last night at Rosa Mexicano-South Beach. We frequent Lincoln Road as my husband has his work there and over the years many restaurants have come and gone and we have tried many. We have several Mexican restaurant that we frequent so never thought of this one as a choice but located right outside the South Beach Cinema we decided to give it a try and so glad we did. We were greeted, served and serviced by friendly staff and our dishes were tasty and fresh. I highly recommend Rosa Mexicano when you are on Lincoln Road and looking for a fresh Mexican fare.

    Our meal was outstanding. AC issues forced us outside (not our preference) and service was fairly slow. Guacamole was delicious but deceptively small in size. Traditional margarita and comp salsa were excellent. Would definitely return!

    Ever since it opened its doors in South Beach, RM has been my very favorite place to done and to bring guests and visitors. Service is anyways impeccable, management is very attentive and accommodating. All things considered, RM is the best combination of what dining out should be in an ideal world, even in a highly competitive locale like South Beach.

    From the moment we walked in to the when we left the service was outstanding. The presentation of the restaurant was very clean and modern but still felt cozy to sit down and eat and talk for a while. The food was amazing and the server knew all the items on the menu and was able to make a few suggestions and recommendations. Highly encourage people to go here, it's well worth it. At this time there is construction on Alton but don't let that deter you from sitting along the windows or from enjoying the outdoor eating space.

    We had a Gilt City voucher as I had wanted to try this place. The restaurant had a separate Gilt City menu. There were plenty of choices on it and in addition we ordered the short rib entree. Food, although a bit pricy was delicious as are the tequila margaritas. Beautiful interior.

    Everything was delicious. I was amazed by the mahi bacon tacos. I generally don’t like truffle oil but it worked perfectly. There were so many layers of flavor, just crazy good. The staff was very attentive and (more importantly) knowledgeable about the way the food was prepared and drink pairings. It was really a stand out experience.

    We can now say that we've eaten at every Rosa Mexicano location. Over the past 10 years, this restaurant has maintained consistency. The margaritas are always exceptional as is the famous guacamole. We tried the shrimp ceviche for the 1st time and could have eaten a vat with gusto. We were sad to see the mole off the menu but understand the seasonal rotation of the menu and the complexity and time, mole takes to execute. We loved our dishes, the pork shank and grilled jumbo shrimp, and the scene was bustling and vibrant.

    Outstanding dinner in every respect. We tried a great variety of menu items; all delicious. Friendly, helpful service and a comfortable environment made for a fun and relaxing gastronomic adventure. A true jackpot selection for our single night in town during an overnight layover. The summer night was hot and steamy. The indoor vibe was great, and the cooling mojito didn't hurt either. We'll be back!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP

    Called to ask about World Cup and any specials. Was told the signature frozen pomegranate margarita was $7 from 12-7. Arrived 30 min early for OT reservation and told hostess. We were seated and ordered drinks. Noticed a specials menu on table and when ordering second drinks, asked waiter about the $7 drink. He said they were regular $. Hostess walked by & I asked about the $7 special. She said ask the waiter. From my seat in the restaurant, I called and spoke to the SAME hostess who confirmed those specific drinks were $7 from 12-7PM that day. We spoke to the waiter about this and paid the lesser amount. Next day I received an email from Open Table saying I was a no show. This was of course corrected. Otherwise, great food as usual!

    Came here on Wednesday night for dinner. Didn't have to wait for an outside table and service was on point. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and the business, and very friendly. The food was on point. I ordered the chili-mango margarita; fresh and exotic. The guacamole was perfectly prepared for our table and the fish and chicken taco entrees were mouthwatering. All of this while being able to enjoy the ambiance of Lincoln road in SoBe made for a perfect date night.

    The Margarita Pitcher was great and the Guacamole was made at table fresh...could have been a little larger portion for 3 people. Prix fixe Cinco de Mayo menu was great. Not Tex Mex, but close to it. Service was great. Only problem was the front desk had no reservation from open table although I have email to confirm it. This isn't the first time a restaurant says there was no reservation through open table. Glad they could seat me as I had friends from out of town and they would have been very disappointed.

    I have had better quality food at this restaurant. Granted, this was my first time at this location, but we even found the guacamole without its usual pizzaz. The Baja tacos were so-so, but the Maji dish was very good and so were the carnitas. Overall, not an unpleasant experience, but not great.

    Came for a late dinner after a movie. We choose to eat outside - not the best idea if you're just two people as the noise from the street can be pretty loud. The menu was extensive and the food was delicious and well-prepared. However, since we were rather late, the staff was rather busy closing down for the night. It was hard to get a waiter's attention. When I did, they were prompt and polite, though they did seem alittle distracted. All-in-all, will come again, just alittle earlier!

    Rosa 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.
