A word from Rosa Mexicano - Sunset
In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened in New York City. Playing a leading role in defining what was then a "new" cuisine to American diners, 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, prepared 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, as well as the stylish and festive ambiance that includes the 15 foot water wall.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "When Rosa Mexicano first opened on Sunset Boulevard, we were enthusiastic. The ambiance, the service, and the food were all great. The ambiance is still very stylish and the service was pretty good too on our most recent visit. The waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The food, however, was disappointing. The trio of salsas that was once offered has been replaced with one bland option. The guacamole, still prepared at the table, was uninteresting too, with the onions not chopped finely enough and the "medium" spiciness still mild. And the main course, the short ribs, looked good - until one discovered the plentiful amounts of fat and gristle. It was not the special meal we were looking forward to having there."

  • "the host was very attentive and welcoming. we had an extra guest we didn't know that was coming and he was already ready with an extra chair. We went to the restaurant to celebrate our friends nuptials and they made it awesome. Our server was always ready to get us whatever we needed. The drink recommendations were awesome. The food was good."

  • "From the guacamole to the flautas to the enchiladas the food is amazing and the jalapeno infused tequila margarita is a hit to wash it all down!"

  • "This was my third visit here. I used to frequent the New York place. The food HERE has been consistently over salted and underwhelming. Inconsistent portion sizes, the guacamole is okay but probably impressive for people who don't eat out too often. The quality of the food is inconsistent. Perhaps a bad kitchen staff. And to end on a positive note, the happy hour is decent."

  • "Guacamole was delicious, main steak tacos were decent, side corn unique and worth a try. Drinks were strong. Service slow and mediocre."

  • "this is the second time I have been to Rosa Mexicana. Both times have been dissapointing. The Salsa is bland at best. I asked for Chula or Tabasco or other hot sauce.....they dont have it. They did have jalapenos but those were not hot and tasteless too Not a fan...would never go back"

  • "Great service, delicious, fresh food! The guacamole surpasses all other restaurants--tastes like fresh from the kitchen!"

  • "We we first arrived, the service was great. Shortly after that, no one came to take our drink orders for about 20 mins and then it took another 20 mins for us to order our food. I understand it was a busy night but the service could have been much better. The crab enchiladas were not good at all, couldn't even eat half way."

  • "I went here on a Monday night to celebrate my mom's birthday, and it was fantastic! The staff was very attentive, and the food was delicious. I got the ceviche and the fish tacos, and I would definitely order both again! I thought it would be a little more crowded/ a little more of a scene, but it was pretty much empty due to it being a working weekday. They surprised us with a little birthday sorbet and some candles, which was really sweet. All in all, a great dining experience. Oh, the skinny traditional margarita was super yummy and well made as well!"

  • "I was reluctant as I'd read two poor reviews. I'm glad that I went. I had a really enjoyable dinner. I loved the guacamole and the presentation. They prepare the guacamole at your table. We were offered delicious amuse bouches and my fish tacos were very good. The service was very attentive without being annoying. The staff were all friendly - a warm greeting at the hostess desk, the guy who took our drink orders, the waiter, the guacamole guy even the guy clearing the table. I enjoyed the live DJ. Overall, a very enjoyable dinner and I'd recommend and go back."

  • "We have been to several other Rosa Mexicano locations before - NYC, Washington, Miami, SF, etc and this location did not come close to our prior experiences. The biggest difference and reason for a negative review was the service we received. All the servers were friendly, but what was surprising was that it took nearly an hour for someone to bring our check after we had said that we did not want dessert. Additionally, we had at least three different servers (without explanation) even though there couldn't have been more than four or five other tables occupied in the restaurant. The food was good, but not as great as we had expected from our prior dining experiences at Rosa, and we didn't feel well later that night and the next day."

  • "Was pleasantly surprised to find a restaurant for New Year's Eve dinner that had the option of not going with a fixed price menu. The food was excellent with a great atmosphere and within walking distance to HOB where we were ringing in the New Year. Thank you!"

  • "It took out waitress 20 minutes to walk over to our table and greet us! I ate my entire meal and never once was offered a refill, I had to ask the manager if he can refill my drink. Once we got our food the waitress never once did walk over to our table to ask how everything was! We order our steak well done, and the steak was still bloody. The food portion was very small. If you are very hungry choose a different restaurant to go to. The water was warm, we asked for ice and never got it! We ordered extra chips and never got them! I now know why the restaurant didn't have a lot of customers visiting on New Years Eve. But we did enjoy the DJ and the music."

  • "Took a friend there on a Friday night at 8:30pm Place was not very crowded, but filled up (somewhat) later in eve. We were greeted promptly by hostess, gave her our OpenTable reservation info, but apparently she didn't "register" this info, as I later received notice from OpenTable that we were a "no show". Anyway......... drinks are inventive, and tasty, but small (especially for the price). Food, on the other hand, is very reasonably priced and very good sized portions, also very creative and tasty. Our waiter was extremely personable, and he enhanced our dining experience immeasurably."

  • "Went for a coworker birthday celebration - 6 guests. We had our pick of the tables as it was not busy at all. A choice of bar, table, big round booth options. The fresh made table side guacamole was delicious and there were a good variety of entree items on the menu. Our waitress was very pleasant and gave great food suggestions. The margaritas were strong and delicious....but then we waited and waited and waited for our food. Surprising, since the resto was empty. When our meals finally came out it was hot and flavorful. My only complaint is the 40 minute lag time for food and having to track down our waitress. Oh and ten bucks for parking in the garage under the restaurant. Carpool."

  • "I went here with my daughter and niece on a Monday night after a premiere. It wasn't busy; it was just about empty. The place is gorgeous on the inside, the service was prompt, friendly and helpful, and the food was amazing. My niece and I had the fish tacos; the corn served on the side was very interesting but delicious. My daughter had the crab enchiladas and devoured them. The drink selections were also delicious, as my sangria came in a little pitcher. It was adorable. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and I will be dining here again."

  • "Place seems very empty. Guacamole was very good. Food ok. Service couldn't have been worse. Sloppy, forgetful and inattentive. Not worth recounting the specifics but an instant turn off and never giving the place another chance. Too bad."

  • "we ordered the pomegranate margaritas and guacamole as everyone suggests and it was a brilliant decision. they are both amazing. the food was delicious and the service was really great as well. i ordered the enchiladas and the tortillas were soooo delicious. we will definitely return.
