The service was awesome. The staff was friendly. The only thing is new guidelines about Covid can be informed in advance.

Overall had a great time! The manager or owner came over to our table to check to see how everything was going which was thoroughly appreciated. The service was very slow which was a bit frustrating but all and all a good time!

had the shrimp ceviche and the cod as a main course. I've been doing KETO and both dishes fit well with my diet. Food was outstanding. Service (Michelle) was excellent as well.

Fun Mexican place with some great flavors. Best thing I had was the side of plaintains, which were delicious. While the entrees were good, they didn't seem to put enough sour cream or guac with the food, which made it seem a little dry. Server was friendly, but never came back after the food arrived, so we didn't order a second round of drinks or get to ask for additional sides.

Quiet Saturday lunch with two kiddos …. Slow but friendly service, some ingredients listed didn’t match what came out in dishes (which creates a challenge with picky children), lots of overcooked peppers and onions mixed into recipes dominated presentation, flavor and texture profiles, but the place was very clean and the decor was very inviting.

Food was excellent and came out quick . Wait staff was just nice . Only negative experience was when we arrived and told the manager we had a reservation. He looked at us first then told the hostess to take us to the table that was next to the noise and high traffic wait station and next to the patio door where people were going in and out in December . We asked to be moved as there were many other empty tables . After a few minutes they moved us .

Food was delicious. Service was a little slow, but not that it was an issue. We did have to ask our server a few times for the check and then there was an issue on the check that he did quickly resolve. Paloma’s were delicious, margaritas could have been better.

Mediocre food. Service was super slow. The place was quite dirty. My feet were sticking to the floor as they don’t seem to cleaned spills etc in a long long time. Worst experience I have had while paying top dollar for their garbage.

The food was exceptionally delicious! The guacamole made at the table was superb. As with every establishment these days they appeared short staffed. The gentleman host who checked us in was not at all warm and inviting which was our first impression but our waitress was pleasant.

Got to our reservation early. Didn’t mind waiting since we were early - Sat there watched tables stay empty the entire time we were there. Finally sat- no red sangria left. Ordered apps… the apps never came. The waitress had no idea and was about to give us the bill. Then we informed her and she brought them out after the meal. Nothing was comped. Sad because the food was good. Drinks are not strong.

It’s incredibly noisy. Impossible to hold a conversation unless you’re willing to yell to reach the person seating in front of you. Too bad because the food and service are good.

We sat at the bar while our table was being prepped and we had an awesome bartender. Made us a couple drinks not on the menu and lit a couple drinks on fire (safely). I would definitely go back.

We have been to Rosa Mexicana in Manhattan several times. We decided to try the Boston Seaport version for brunch last weekend. The food is good but not outstanding. The service is amateur but friendly. Overall, the ambiance is not the same as the one near Lincoln Center in Mew York

An interesting experience to say the least. We first got there and had to wait 10 minutes even though we had a reservation. Once seated, it was frantic. Our waiter, while entertaining, seemed like he was hammered. I know everywhere is short staffed, so we did not mind having to wait for food and drinks (that took forever). The food was not great. Would go back just for the experience of the hectic waiter, but that’s about it.

Seated promptly at reservation time. Nice atmosphere, modern and lively but you could converse fine.
The food was delicious and gourmet. The only negative was the service was a bit slow. It was not our servers fault. She was very pleasant and helpful. Likely struggling to get staff like everyone else caused by the pandemic. Manager did come around asking everyone if they were happy and how the service was so I give him credit for gauging the situation. 5 stars without this note.

The food was good; however, there was a lot of miscommunication among the staff as to who was serving us. There were two other tables seated after us who received water and their food way before us and no one came until we asked who was serving us. Once we did receive a server, she was very kind and apologetic however, the management did nothing to acknowledge and we had a reservation. The main course took 40 minutes to arrive and no one came by to apologize or update us on the time. Overall, food was okay but service especially management and hospitality was subpar.

Food was terrific, including shrimp ceviche, pork empanadas, carnitas (with nice corn tortillas) and very good fried fish tacos. Drinks were excellent.

The wait team was understaffed - i waited five minutes at the hostess table for a waitress/waiter to come to the front and greet me. A second round of drinks took a long time but the waitress/bartender made up for it by upgrading our tequila quality for round 2, on the house.

Always enjoy Rosa Mexicana.
