Always love coming here. It’s our neighborhood restaurant, and man, are we lucky. The margaritas are stellar, the food is excellent, and the service is always great. Never had a bad experience.

OpenTable and La Rosa made our experience delightful. On a busy Friday we got right in and the food was quick and delicious. Our waitress was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.

The regular staff remembers us and as we always order the same thing they have learned what we want.
Staff seems to be enjoying what they do we like that.

Online dinner reservations were made for a party of 4. I was reconnecting with a friend whom I had not seen for over 30 years so we decided to meet for dinner. We enjoyed our time at La Rosa - (3 1/2 hours) - the service was great and the food was delicious which arrived to us quickly and hot at a reasonable price.

La Rosa presented some of the tastiest Mexican cuisine I've encountered anywhere in the US. A surprisingly good find in Bend OR.

We were craving Mexican food on our last night in Bend. The menu at La Rosa had a nice gourmet touch to it so we gave it a try and were very pleased. We were also craving some good guacamole & chips, so we ordered the “table side quacamole” and watched the the server make our guacamole right at our table customizing it to our liking!:)
We would definitely dine at La Rosa again:)

This was my first time dining at La Rosa. I recently moved here from Boise, ID, and relied on input from my date as to La Rosa's food and their margaritas.

The food we ordered was excellent and very reasonably priced - so far so good...

The margaritas we were served, however, which are as much a part of the overall experience as the dining, were just not that good - very small in quantity (served in an 8 oz. glass with 5-6 ounces of ice) and thus, vastly overpriced. Our $100 bill was $70 in margaritas @ an average of $10/margarita!

Both my date and I would certainly recommend the food at La Rosa, but agree we cannot with good faith find anything positive to say about their margaritas.

A favorite date night for my husband and I when we are in Bend. We love the fresh choices, the table side guacamole, and of course the amazing margaritas!
Opentable made our wait time non existent as there was a wait time when we arrived for our reservation.

The service started off a little slow but improved as the evening progressed. They took longer than I would have liked to take our order. It was probably due to the fact that we were seated in the farthest corner in the back of the restaurant so I wasn’t too upset. The location of our seating enabled conversation since we were in a quieter section. Once our order was taken, the service improved significantly. The quality of the meal was excellent and the portions were more than sufficient. Overall it was an enjoyable evening with close friends. The owner even stopped by our table at one point to refill our water glasses.

We love our local gem La Rosa. On Fridays, we enjoy the warming greeting we receive as we walk into what we know is going to be a tasty dining experience. In addition to great Mexican food, I love the Jalapeno Margarita (always supersized). The food is good and a great value, fit for a friendly get together or family dining.

We often go to this neighborhood restaurant. Good quality control with quite an extensive menu but not overwhelming and lots of choices for various tastes and appetite sizes. We shared a shrimp ceviche appetizer which is always tasty and refreshing. I had a small plate of the two stuffed peppers which I like as it is fairly light but still satisfying. Service is always warm and friendly.
