Overall it was fine but we asked for medium spicy guacamole and it was very bland. The services was okay - our server tried hard but he had a lot of tables and they were quite large. As for ambience, it was more touristy than I expected.

Food was awful-no flavor-bland. Service wasn't much better either the waiter and wait staff were arrogant. I'll never dine again.

I was pleased to get a reservation right after our event at Capital One Arena. Booked the reservation just an hour ahead while sitting in the arena. I thought the prices seemed extremely reasonable considering the location. The food was pretty good. It’s a little nicer than our average Mexican restaurant and had its own take on some of the meals which was nice. My only complaint was my skirt steak was a little tough

Rude front desk. Loveless bar service. Average food at best. Ambience of a hospital waiting room. No comparison to other sister restaurant. Bummer

We love Rosa Mexicana! The guac is always great, and the tacos are very tasty. I love the real corn tortillas. The margaritas are very good, too. The service is fast, makes it good for pre-theatre in Penn Quarter. And they are open after the theatre, too for great desserts.

Food was decent, not exceptional. A bit overpriced for what you get. Good location for attending events at the Capital One arena.

It was a busy Friday, with event across the street at the arena, but online reservation worked. Busy, lively atmosphere. Cocktails were satisfying, with a broad assortment of margaritas and beer. Service was attentive and helpful at all times without being intrusive. Guacamole is handmade at your table and outstanding. A must! Our dinners were good portions and drew raves. I had the Tres enchiladas, and the sauces were the best I have had anywhere. Will definitely be returning.
