Rosa Mexicano by Lincoln Center
Located directly across the street from Lincoln Center, Rosa Mexicano is the perfect destination for dinner before a performance, or a cocktail after the show.

Wonderful as always! Service was quick, food was great and the ambience is awesome.
Food was was mediocre at best. Certainly not any where close to the price they charge for it. Dessert selection was slim.
Rosa remains one of the most consistently outstanding restaurants in New York. The loss of their 1st Avenue location, the first in the company's history, is still a devastating loss. But life at the Lincoln Center location reminds us that great food and great company will always continue. The staff is positive, the energy infectious, the food impeccable. Come and enjoy!
This ranks as one of the worst dining experiences I have ever had. We ordered guacamole and chips shortly after sitting, drinks when the guacamole came, and then waited an entire hour before our waiter returned to order entrees. We told him we were planning to pay and leave, and then asked if the food would take a long time. He promised the food wouldn’t take LONGER THAN 30 MINUTES (which is a long time) and we said that was too long… he said he would “have the kitchen expedite the food”. We ordered.
The food arrived 40 minutes later, it was lukewarm and truly mediocre. There is nothing special about this restaurant. It is overpriced, poorly executed and terribly mismanaged.
I will absolutely tell everyone I know to NEVER under any circumstance, eat at this terrible place.
The food was delicious. However, the service was not good all around.
The staff made my party feel rushed. Someone tried to clear our plates while we were clearly still eating?!
We were asked if we were ready to order every 5 minutes.
Service was fabulous and the food so good. We’ve been here several times and will definitely return!
Rosa Mexicano never disappoints me . I love this place and hope to be back soon.
The attention from the waiter named David was awesome. He explained me all the courses in order to make the right choice. There is nothing better when you go to a restaurant and find a good waiter.
The margaritas are wonderful!! The food is very good as well.
Nothing to look forward to- as we had, based on several earlier experiences.
The 3 course meal was boring. We left most of it. And focused on our conversations instead.
Loaded Nachos is a must try there, also try the guava colada drink.
Wanted to do a bros night with my two best friends and catch up how we normally do every 3 months and I chose this place since I’ve passed by it multiple times. The food was very good and the drinks were perfectly strong. The only thing I can say we weren’t happy with was the guacamole. Other than that our server was extremely attentive to us, we got service fast and had an amazing night!
Wonderful service and the food and drinks were delicious- I asked for an outside table in advance and they accommodated us
Waiter was excellent very accommodating,food was wonderful, it was our anniversary and my grandsons birthday and they made it special
Was seated outside next to a very loud couple. Was not pleasant.
Food was good but not hot. Waiter never came close enough for me to complain.
I’ve been trying here many times and this was yhe worst visit.
Great food and excellent service. Waiter was friendly and attentive.
The food is always great and THE BEST FROZEN MARGARITA in Manhattan!
Very reasonably priced
Going to make it a regular spot
Service was basically non existent. Drinks took 20 minutes each time. Food was just awful. Fish tacos smelled fishy and could not eat them. Guacamole seemed like it came from a bag; bland and needed salt and spices. What a let down.
The service was amazing. The food, unfortunately, was not.
Great food ! Service was excellent very friendly waiter. Would definitely go again!!
As always, excellent service, food and ambiance. A true neighborhood gem!!
Patetic service. Uncaring, indifferent and under equipped. Took 90 minutes to get the order and that too wrong. We had specified and ordered vegetarian food and got a meat dish instead. The server said the manager will come as we were quite annoyed but not surprisingly no one came. No apologies- nothing! A real waste of time going here.
Food was mediocre and pretty expensive. Not a lot of effort was put into preparing the food either. Food was missing items that were ordered. Service was good though.
We celebrated my niece’s move to New York!
Our hostess and waiter accommodated our special needs for a table of 8 (including 3 children).
One of my favorite restaurants. Delicious food from appetizers to dessert. Drinks are great, too.
Would have been nice to receive the points for the reservation, and the hostess seemed very confused about our on-time arrival, then proceed to help someone who came in after us, so kind of a strange experience.
Excellent meal, skilled service, for us out in time for our movie.
Food was just warm, why can’t restaurants serve their food hot anymore?
The carnitas were good, but the plate was all meat, no pico, no rice or beans, nothing to put with the pork in a tortilla - so it made it bland. Poor execution of the entree
40 minutes waiting for food. One dish never arrived.
Food was superb as it usually is. A must go if you like Mexican food in an exce3llent environment
We had the reservation for 5 and they wanted located our group on a table back almost on the kitchen when the restaurant had the space to sit us in a better spot. It was almost empty
Additionally, they gave us limited time til 5:30 PM because they needed it for other group. We left at 6:00 PM and it wasn’t a problem for anybody.
Siempre el mejor ambiente y servicio
Decent food. Fun restaurant for a night out. Would go again!
Guacamole was very bland. Fish tacos also very bland and cold. Lovely service, though.
This was an awful dining experience. Service and food were both terrible.
The quality of the food has definitely declined. This place is way too pricey for the sub-par food they serve. Do not waste your money here.
Elevator out of order to restroom. No handicapped access. Waiter forgot an entree... won’t be back for a while.
