About Rosa Mexicano - Boston
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 tableside 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.

Rosa Mexicano - Boston Ratings and Reviews
I made an 8:15 reservation for my husband & I to celebrate his birthday. We got to the restaurant early, the Host/Hostess told us our table would be ready around our reservation (we expected this) and proceeded to the bar. As we got closer to our reservation time, my husband went back to the Host/Hostess and checked in again to ensure we wouldn't be overlooked. While waiting we noticed at least 6 parties come in after us, some without reservations as we heard them put their names in, but yet they were seated before us. (We could see open tables for two.) It's now almost 8:30 and we still hadn't been seated; we weren't even acknowledged. My husband went up to the Host/Hostess, for the third time, to ask about our reservation. Suddenly a table appeared and we were brought to the back of the restaurant where it was freezing! The food was OK and over priced. We finished our meal and asked for the check. The waiter came back saying that it was our Anniversary, it was not, it was my husband's birthday - which I explained to him. He said that dessert was on them for the occasion but we didn't want dessert and just wanted to leave at this point. We literally waited 30 minutes for our check, mind you we had to ask him more than once for it. It was so bad that we could have left and nobody would have even noticed - we clearly were invisible! I will never go back here nor will I ever recommend this place to anybody. The way this place treated us was wrong and ruined my husband's birthday dinner! Giving them one star is far too generous.
An outstanding selection of local Mexican dishes from various places around the country, coupled with excellent drinks and fresh guacamole mixed at the table - Rosa Mexicano is a prize addition to the Seaport District. It's a trifle loud, and there's an annoying habit of turning the lights low - sometimes too low to read the menu! - but the food is worth the inconvenience. At the busiest time service can be a little slow, but it's all freshly prepared and tastes superb (and authentic). Recommended.
Love the one in NYC. This one was nice and the staff was great. Drinks, chips and salsa were good but The food we ordered for dinner was awful. Very disappointed because the NYC restaurant is always amazing.
Won’t be going back unless it’s just for drinks and chips.
This was my first experience. Food was great. Service was excellent. But,except by the time they brought the guacamole dinner was served. I was slightly disappointed that they didn't play Spanish music while we dined. Mexican restaurants should play mariachi music. Over all it was a great birthday location. We had fun!
Overrated and overpriced. The menu offers a variety of options that sound interesting, but the quality does not meet the menu's description. I've given this place a number of tries and despite quality service and a nice ambiance, the place is simply overrated and overpriced.
The table side guacamole order was great! It took a very long time for our server to take our order (I could see him socializing with the hostess) and at the lunch hour when everyone orders water it should be a sign that it’s a business lunch that needs to move quickly. I ordered the salmon salad, which I usually love and it was terrible. No flavor, and the tortilla strips were soggy. It tasted like it was dressed with water and had sat out for an hour. 6 months ago I ordered this salad and loved it, so obviously something has changed (the chef? The recipe?) I could not complain or send it back because it was a business lunch and it would not have been appropriate. That dish should be removed from the menu!
The table side Guacamole was average at best (way to many onions, and tomatoes, not creamy at all, and medium spicy was very very spicy...and I like spice.) Kayla salad was 90% spinach, and carnitas was more like shredded pork. Very disappointed all in all. Now I understand why the lighting was so dark...they don’t want you to see what your eating.
Wife, myself, and our two daughters (9 & 11) were out and about and decided we were in the mood for Mexican. Very impressed with the flavors, we all made a point to order something we hadn't had before, and none of us were disappointed. The guacamole was also amazing. Loved the decor for dia de los muertos.
We got seated right away. The server gave us a great recommendation on cocktails and they were delicious. A bit spicy but perfect combo with the meal. They make the guacamole right in front of you and it’s by far the best guacamole I’ve ever had. Overall, great experience.
Overall really nice dining experience. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. Their margaritas are great! Food is pretty spicey so make sure to ask about how spicey your meal is before you order. Lighting is a little dark and the tables are kind of big for a 2 person so you have to speak loudly to have a conversation.
Table side guac is amazing! I found the salmon to be very good, but actually too big! I would have paid the same amount for 1/2 the serving. And make sure to ask your waitstaff how spicy something is. The waitstaff is instructed only to "warn" if it's a 8 or above. My friend ordered something that was considered a "7" (however nowhere on the menu does it say what level it is). He could hardly finish it, very spicy!
We always celebrate our anniversary with Mexican food. This was our first visit to Rosa Mexicano. They offer delicious upscale Mexican food (not your average neighborhood place) that was beautifully presented with well-balanced hand-crafted cocktails. We were delightfully surprised by the variety of tequilas they offered. The service was lovely and they were very attentive to us. We will definitely return with friends and family soon!
I was looking forward to a quiet dinner, and booked a reservation. Unfortunately, the restaurant was hosting a large halloween party at the same time, so it was very noisy, crowded and uncomfortable. If they had notified me of the concurrent party, I wouldn't have booked the reservation. Very disappointing. But food and service were very good.
The service was superb, our waiter returned often to make sure our needs were met, we were very impressed and ensured that our happiness was reflected in the tip. The red wine sangria was good, as were the chips and guacamole. The carnitas entree was well seasoned but the portion size was rather meagre. I will dine there again to try another entree.
Started with delicious margaritas and handmade guacamole. Dinner was very tasty but not memorably delicious. Service was more attentive than average with a friendly conversation. I eat here with some frequency because it's solidly reliable. Note it's in Seaport area in Boston so prices will be high.
