Our highly anticipated second Rosa Mexicano location opened in July 2000. Just steps away from Lincoln Center, this impressive David Rockwell-designed space features a 30-foot iridescent blue tile water wall that spans both levels of the restaurant and is adorned with 240 miniature cliff divers. Here you’ll also find a dramatic “floating” staircase made of orange and red terrazzo slabs and backlit panels behind the bar embedded with rose petals. Awarded “Best Restaurant 2000” by Interiors Magazine, this unique, contemporary look ushered in a new era for us at Rosa Mexicano.

This SoCal girl loved this Mexican restaurant. The freshness of the guacomole was like they made it right in front of you, which they did. Loved the tres enchiladas , the mole sauce was very rich. The spicy mango margarita went down nicely. The entire experience was just perfecto.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant. The food, the margaritas, the guacamole and the service are far superior to any other Mexican restaurant. No matter what we’ve ordered to eat, we have never been disappointed. There are many entrees to choose making it difficult as everything is delicious.

Rosa Mexicano is a nice mexican/ tex mex restaurant but you don't really get what you pay for. The drinks are great, the deserts are fantastic. But the entrees while good are comparable to any other good mexican restaurant. But at 2 to 3 times the cost. The service is great, the table side guacamole, is very good. But I would say this meal for my family of 5 easily cost $100-120 more than an equivalent meal at a local restaurant. If you go, get the guac and get the tres leches!

Everything was delicious. The margaritas are made perfectly. We had guacamole , which is made tableside. Very good (though it could use some more salt and some lime, IMO.) Empanadas were OK- I've had much better, but the entrees were delicious. The tres enchiladas came with three different sauces, and the pork carnitas were cooked to perfection. The waiter brought us churros with chocolate & raspberry dipping sauces, and they were the best churros I've ever had. Really great meal.

For a chain this is a very nice option. I like the one in DC a bit better, but for NYC this is an excellent choice.

The guacamole is never spicy enough here. The pork is delicious. The service should be faster.

I have always been a great fan of Rosa’s but this experience was disappointing . The server was taking drink orders while half of the guests were not quite settled. After feeling rushed then the service became slow. When the food finally arrived it was tepid in temperatures and the chicken was dry and tough. The churros we ordered for dessert were raw. Finally the room temperature was so cold we were eat with our coats on. Would not return to this Rosa Mexicano any time soon. Love the location on First Avenue .
