    The food has never disappointed and our server was quite kind but it's hard to give positive reviews when it takes 40 minutes to for our drinks to arrive for just 4 people. I realize staffing shortages continue but the manager could have at least stopped by to apologize for the delay.

    Was disappointed in the slow service. Once we began to get our food the waitress was not interested in clearing the empty dishes so we were eating at a table filled with plates we didn’t need. The order was not accurate and eventually was corrected but again the incorrect food was left and we had more food on the table. It felt overwhelming and chaotic.

    For a restaurant near the convention center this place is a disaster. Do not come here even with with a reservation. Host is flustered and can’t handle seating people. Never got a soda refill in an hour. Not to mention the food took over an hour which was a salad and 3 tacos.

    The food was cheap and high priced with no salt. The menu says cafe con leche with churros, but they don’t come with coffee and the churros were burned. They forgot our chicken, service was slow, and they took our water when we got up to dance. The manager never checked in to see how anyone’s meal or experience was. We will never go there again.

    Some of the best Mexican Food I have had in a long time. The Guacamole was delicately spiced and the avocado couldn't have been more perfect. The brisket enchilada was delicious and the best I have ever had. Light and tasty, just perfect. We finished dinner with a crisp, yet soft churro serving that was out of this world. Even if you are not that into Mexican food you've got to try this. It is impeccable food.

    There was much confusion among the staff and it led to poor quality service. 2 people tried to seat us, leading to a delay. We had multiple people trying to serve us, food order was switched with the table next to us and no one even realized it for at least 10 minutes because no one was truly responsible for the table. Food was descent but menu was pretty limited.

    I have been many, many times. This was not the gold star visit I was hoping for, but since the pandemic, it's been a bit spotty. Server was great, but service was poor. Tortilla soup was an inedible bowl of salt. Entree was ok. I love this place and will go back, but I will be doing so with high hopes and memories rather than based on the current experience last evening. The guacamole, as always, was fantastic. That was the best part. That and the frozen mango margarita.

    We knew nothing of Rosa when we made our reservation and assumed it would be a passable, generic Mexican restaurant. Boy, were we wrong! To start with the restaurant is tastefully and comfortably decorated (not a sombrero in sight!). We were seated and attended to promptly. While there were many options for margaritas, all but the frozen ones used agave nectar (sugar), which we shy away from. We opted for a couple of frozen ones, and, well, they were excellent (and they didn't skimp on the tequila!). The menu was nicely tailored without the usual Mexican mix & match combos. We ordered the guacamole appetizer and it was very tasty. Also, the house salsa was warm and, like the chips, a couple of notches above the standard fare. For our meals, my wife ordered fish tacos and I ordered brisket (?!?) enchiladas with beans instead of the default rice. Both dishes were excellent with lovely presentation and nice portion sizes. Again, they differed from standard Mexican fare with simply plating and minimal cheese and garnish. The house hot sauce was an excellent red sauce that was very spicy. Our server was helpful, friendly and properly attentive. Upon departure, our only question was, "Why isn't this place packed on a Friday night like the other restaurants in the area?"

    Customer service was great. Quick & friendly check-in and our server was very personable. Food was just so-so unfortunately. We dined just before an event at the pavilion, so perhaps it was super busy and rushed, but my party of 5 felt that everything we ordered was on the bland side. Prices were reasonable. We wouldn’t necessarily avoid Rosa Mexicano but it wouldn’t be our first choice either.

    I booked a table on the “winter patio.” Apparently this does not exist/was not available and the host sat us by a large private party, indoors. As someone who is still pretty COVID-conscious this was exactly what I was trying to avoid.

    The staff was incredibly rude and made us wait even though we had a reservation. We sat at the bar while we waited, which was extremely dirty. When our table was available, we were instructed to close out at the bar (terrible system) and bring everything with us - the staff then laughed at us as we carried our drinks to our table. The queso was overdone and cold - it took around 25 minutes to arrive. The food itself was cold (it took over an hour to arrive) but the mole was acceptable. The restaurant seemed to be over capacity and it was hard to hear each other while sitting at a two person table.

    One of the worst experiences I’ve had in Boston- I usually don’t write bad reviews but felt like I had to for this place. Started off with a reservation so we were seated quickly but after it took about ten minutes for a hostess to arrive at the front. After we were seated we ordered their “most famous drink” I suppose, which was a frozen pomegranate margarita, and it disappointed. Tried to order chips and guac and they were out of guacamole. I tried to order three entrees and every time I did the waitress said they were out of that. I finally just said to order what my boyfriend got because he ordered first without issue and I obviously hadn’t memorized the whole menu to be denied 3 times. The food came out timely but the runner just placed the tray next to our table for a few minutes and didn’t actually serve us until someone noticed and was like “is this yours” to which we had to reply “I think so”. Had to track someone down to get silverware. The waitress came over on her phone and asked how we were doing. The food was actually good… until I found two long hairs in my one and had it sent back. Thankfully the waitress had it taken off the bill which I appreciated. But safe to say I’m never coming back here.

    We went to Rosa Mexicano last night for dinner. When we got to the restaurant it was complete chaos- we had a reservation, so we were seated fairly quickly, but it took 30 minto get our drinks and guacamole. The two tables next to us had been there waiting for their food for an hour - they had to get up and leave because they didn't have time to continue to wait. We ordered our second drink as soon as the first one came because we knew the bar was very backed up. I ordered chicken tacos which were okay, but my husband had the beef short rib enchiladas and they were totally grisly and just inedible. Really disgusting. We should have sent them back, but we were pretty much over that place by then. The queso was basically melted velvetta cheese. Bright side was that our server was very sweet and did a good job, but she couldn't wait to get out of there, even the manager looked completely miserable. We definitely would not recommend.
