The tableside guacamole is a must. Great street tacos, sangria, and margaritas.
Excellent Oaxacan menu with very good appetizers. I usually avoid Chalupines but Rosa used just enough to give the right amount of fried grasshopper crunch and taste! However, the main dishes -- chicken and pork chop -- were totally overcooked and dried out! Rosa Lincoln Center seems to have a problem with overcooking main dishes. Good appetizers and good drinks though.
We love Rosa Mexicano! Have been coming here for many years.
This time - hostesses were not so friendly and engaging, and after waiting with no response for 5 mins - we decided to move to the bar area and get ourselves few drinks and try to approach hostesses one more time.
But after sitting down for dinner - everything was perfect! Attentive personal, great service, quick and delicious ( it was pre show dinner). Great margaritas, best guacamole and pretty good street tacos.
We really enjoy our evening.
Great as usual!!!
Menu choices limited, ambiance and service were terrific. Good quality food but limited choices. Pricing slightly on the high side relatively speaking.
Loved the restaurant. My husband and I made dinner reservations after attending a concert at Lincoln Center for 9:15 pm. We were seated right away and greeted by a friendly, courteous staff. The drinks, appetizers, dinner and dessert were all excellent and exceeded expectations. Perfect date night.
Service was bad
I have been to every Rosa Mexicano location. The food was delicious and fairly priced, as usual. Unfortunately, we were mostly forgotten by our waiter...who only came by to pick up our plates. We were sat at a very cramped table and it was a little difficult to hear each other talk, which I guess may be acceptable at such a busy resturant. Just a note. Great experience overall:)
Birthday and new citizenship
The food was good and the service was excellent as it normally is when I come.
We ordered a beef with mashroom source, the size of beef was unexpectedly small as the price ($35) and its mashroom source was too salty for us.
Order the fresh guacamole made at the table - excellent!
I ordered the alambre camarones and it had four shrimp with two peppers; not satisfying; My wife's flautas were mixed with salsa and not to her liking; we have been loyal customers since Zarela closed
Decided to order a bunch of small bites/plates for dinner, including their famous guacamole!! Simply DELICIOUS all around! Could not have had a better meal and wonderful service. My hubby and I were thrilled and will return there soon.
Rosa Mexicano is clean with a lovely atmosphere. The servers are friendly and patient. The food is of high quality and delicious. It’s one of my favorite places in that area.
Hostess was disorganized and confused. Restaurant is extremely noisy. We asked for a quiet table and were offered one by the bar-the loudest table in the house. We asked to be seated upstairs. She asked us to wait, then offered a quiet upstairs table to the next patron, using my name! She didn’t remember me!
Upstairs was nice, good food, but still hard to hear the waitstaff. Wrong beverages were brought. There is something about the size of this place that makes it unrestful.
Took waaaay to long to get our meals. Brought appetizers same time as dinner. Not well coordinated. Waiter was nice but obviously overwhelmed. Food was good but if you’re in a rush to see a show, I would avoid.
One of our favorites. Still wishing for a Chicago location.
Have gone here many times. Always enjoy the energy. Service was fantastic, noise level almost painful. Short rib wasn’t fall off the bone and a bit rubbery. Guacamole spicy just as ordered
Great place to go before Lincoln Center. Ignore the noisy bar near the entrance. Food, service and ambiance upstairs is very nice.
Rosa Mexicano always provides good Mexican (NOT Tex/Mex) food at a reasonable price. It's right across the street from Lincoln Center, and is one of our regular choices for dinner before the opera. On our most recent visit the tuna ceviche special, with avocado, jalapenos, and citrus, was delicious. The skirt steak was perfectly cooked, and the budin de pollo was excellent. The flan was exactly as it should be. It was very noisy, but that seems to be a universal problem.
This fell very short of our expectations! We’ve been here before and it was great, this time, the short ribs were all fatty, the enchiladas were mushy and the mango margarita was well not at all enjoyable!! Very big let down!! The churros were yummy at least!
I have not been back for years to Rosa Mexicano. Good news is the space is warm and vibrant, and the staff and service were excellent. Bad new? The food was average at best, and the beer selection was pathetic. Mexican beer, all in bottles. Not even on tap. Salsa was poor, tasted like it came from a jar. Fine for a quick reasonably priced dinner, but do not expect great food.
Always a good place in the Lincoln Center area...love the guac and more!
Very nice meal. The tableside guac was great, as always. The carintas are fantastic, as are the enchiladas and the tampiquena! Service was very efficient, but our waiter was a bit brusque. This generally doesn't bother us since we're not looking for a new best friend, but it was noticeable enough that we couldn't give the full 5 stars. Its quite loud, but that's New York, where if you want a quiet meal you stay home.
Fish in fish taco over cooked. It was very dry. Sauce was delicious.
Delicious Mexican food and outstanding drinks. Great location and beautiful room.
Great service in particular on my most recent visit to RM for dinner.
Great service and large tables ! Perfect location,.
It was a great place, tres leches is probably the best. I’m Not rating it a full 4 or 5 stars as I would like too simply because I’m Latina and I honestly feel like all the servers catered to every Caucasian person in there except us. Had to ask 3 times for water, at least 4 times to 3 separate servers for the bill. I invited another friend and was also with my 13 year old who was starving but again they took forever. They place didn’t seem insanely packed, we had a reservation for 9:30 and ended up leaving at 12:40 because it took that long. We could have probably walked out and no one would have even noticed. I still tipped them almost 30% because I’m not the type of person to tip low. Hopefully they will learn not to assume that every Latin person who walks in there is going to tip low.
Great place . First time there . Food was great . Service was outstanding. Will be back
Our server was outstanding. We were in a rush and he ensured that we got everything very quickly, including working in a complimentary birthday desert for my guest. The food, was ok, but our house Margherita's on the rocks had a weird after taste. Neither one of us finished them. If we hadn't been pressed for time we'd have sent them back - they were that bad. Otherwise the visit was fine.
Love Rosa Mexicano!! They never disappoint. Food is consistently delicious and the service is always friendly. You can’t go wrong especially with their specialty cocktails!! My friends and I had a wonderful time. Highly recommend.
The menus have changed. The overall quality has lessened. Lacking the unique flavor and now more commercial. Lincoln Center location was run the best out of all of them and the quality has decreased even though we had a very attentive waiter.
I seriously do not know what you could possibly do to make a meal better here. All of the employees are very attentive and polite. The food is amazing to look at and to eat despite the fact that the place is gigantic and usually packed! Had tortilla soup and plantains for lunch. Brought friends for lunch early on a Saturday and they raved over the food and service.
Love it! They redid their menu and it's an improvement. Great selection of gluten free options and vegetarian choices, and even their drinks improved! Excellent and friendly service.
I’ve always enjoyed Rosa Mexicano food. They must have changed the chef. I normally always order the short ribs of beef Tablones. This time it was horrible! They only serves one small short rib on the bone (normally it not on a bone). It was hard and tough and difficult to cut with a steak knife. I was only able to get about 3 bites of meat from the entire meal
The other guests that joined me complained about their meal as well and they were very disappointed with the food
We also ordered a 1/2 pitcher of Sangria. The must be looking to make $1000 % profit off the bottle because the pitcher barely gave two people 1/2 glass of Sangria. The purpose of order a 1/2 picture is to get a better value than 2 glasses
Me and my 3 guests were very disappointed and will not return to this location
Was noisy crowded, table was too small, staff was good but a little overwhelmed
What to say? Receptionist was busy on phone; didn't acknowledge me for 5 minutes even to look up.
Meal took 30 minutes although it was less than half full for lunch. Fried Chicken dry; mole sauce tasteless (not chocolate; not spice; nothing). When waiter, as part of clearing plates, asked for first time how meal was, I said mediocre. A manager came; when I described my view above he said I should have said something sooner (maybe waiter should have asked sooner?) I pointed out given other delays my concert schedule would not have allowed for do over. He comped me for lunch. I appreciate that, but I'd rather pay and have a good meal. First avenue & downtown locations much better.
Their frozen margaritas were delicious, Their special Night of the Dead menu had terrific choices. I had grilled whole trout, which was served on a bed of pumpkin seed sauce and it was topped with a citrus salad. Very good.
