Made reservation but got there early and they sat us right away. Filled water glasses and could see they weren’t clean. Waiter noticed I was looking at glass and immediately removed all four glasses.... took awhile to get new ones!! Opened menu and found something stuck on menu, almost looked like a squashed worm.... gross. Guacamole was good . My dish was sort of a chicken fatitas but chicken and veggies were stuck to sauce/cheese on bottom of plate. Like it was microwaved maybe. Very unappealing looking..... didn’t eat much except chips and guacamole. Rarely have I eaten at a place that turned me off so much.
Visiting from Chicago with a friend, this restaurant was recommended. Everything was delicious! Margaritas were strong! But good! Make sure to order the guacamole made tableside.
Food is delicious and authentic - service was excellent
Terrible service , but I already wrote an angry letter. Service was slow and inattentive. Birthday celebration was a bust. Cold food and completely inattentive service. Had to get up several times to summon anyone from the wait staff. What happened? Used to be our favorite restaurant
Abbiamo aspettato più di un’ora dall’ordine.
Food is always delicious and the staff accommodating and polite
Everyone in this establishment is friendly, professional, and graciously accommodating:)
usually this is a great place, but they forgot my appetizer and half of my + my friend's entree order, we got carne but no pollo + had to take it home
I have been to this restaurant many times. This visit we were seated by the entry and found it noisy due to the constant flow of other diners being seated, and the service was quite slow (although the famed table- side guacamole came quite promptly). Visitors to Rosa should not expect Tex-Mex but should review the menu before they come. The portions are ample and overall it is always a good experience.
Food is great- consistent across locations. Ambience here is not as good as Union Square. Service was excellent from out waiter but the other staff were not so attentive. The nachos are a pretty cool dish to see them prepare but our server decided to do it behind my back instead of in front of us where we could see it all done.
We have been coming here for years and it NEVER disappoints! Menu has changed but still loving the guac and pomegranate margarita!
This is the second time in a few months that I haven't had a great experience here. This past time service was incredibly slow, the margaritas were all ice, food was served cold, and just wasn't as tasty as it usually is. Hopefully they will improve
Very slow service for a group of 8. Was not busy and had no reason to be treated so poorly. Had to get up to ask for a manager multiple times to track down our drinks and food.
I've been going to this restaurant for about 3 decades, almost as long as they've been open. It never disappoints. I love the authenticity of the Mexican food and the decor. The best guacamole in town and great margaritas as well.
I've been to Rosa dozens of times and always love it. Quality slipped a little last Sat. due to a packed dining room. Still very good, but not on par with the best I've had at Rosa.
Great Day of the Dead menu ! Good food and service as always
All the food was awful. They changed their menu and even the guacamole (which is usually good) was not great. Won’t be back.
The host was lp
All white wine offerings were truly terrible, margaritas were watered down and food was so spicy we couldn’t eat most of it. Used to be such a great place to eat. Not going back!!
Worst experience by far. Terrible service - we were ignored
Great dinner, I would absolutely recommend getting the guacamole for the table. The meal was great, although portions were a little small. Complementary chips and salsa.
The wait time for the food to come out was horrible. We found ourselves staring at each other trying to figure out what the problem was... plus we only ordered simple meals including soup.
Apparently “unlimited” brunch drinks means they can cut you off when they feel like they’re not making money on you anymore and then the manager (Caroline) comes over and shames you and your friend for drinking too much and celebrating a birthday. Won’t be returning ever.
Very poor food including cold scrambled eggs, an eggs Benedict covered in oil and stale tortillas. Would never return.
My wife and I had a great time! The staff was friendly and very attentive. Rosa always does a wonderful job.
Everything we had was amazing. Definitely give this location a try.
Drinks was great and the Mexican food was on par with taste and flavor.
The chicken “pie” was outstanding, and so were margarita’s!!
Menu changed. Entrees we wanted are now appetizers
I won’t go again😢
We had been pretty regular customers, but our meal on Oct.6 was not good at all ..
new menu new chef who knows ...but they will not see us again. That was the
opinion of all four of us having dinner that evening.
This restaurant is consistently good especially the branch on First Avenue. The atmosphere, the service the quality of the food and now that short ribs are back on the menu, I shall definitely be dining there more often.
Best of the Rosa Mexicano locations! Service was great....thank you Estevan! Brunch was delicious and you can't beat the Bottomless cocktail options! I'll definitely be going back the next time I'm in NYC.
Very disappointed. Food was mediocre service was just ok. Had to send back dirty glasses and silverware. Steak was like rubber. Ordered wine and it came very late in meal. Ordered bottle water and it was warm. On your site told them of food allergies and it was a birthday. Both issues were not mentioned nor honored. Waitress gave a free desert to compensate for rubber steak. We love Mexican food and know places of very high quality. This was not one of them
A busy spot. Plenty of vigorous noise, and service is erratic, but the food is good.
We had a very good meal at Rosa Mexicano. The hostess was very nice. Our guacamole was slightly chunky but flavorful. The guy who made it for us was VERY nice and made us laugh with our non-spicy request. He later came back to help clear our table and again had us laughing. The tequila flight was one of the best recommendations! Otherwise, our drinks were okay. They tasted more sweet than strong. One of our drinks was supposed to be spicy but we couldn't tell the difference between our three drinks. The food was very good! Our waiter was nice and quick. The bathroom could definitely use a makeover. This wasn't my first visit and certainly not my last.
Loved the booth very intimate
Guacamole wasn׳t great
It was my Moms Birthday and it was a terrible experience. I had a small child with me as well and they seated us in a very claustrophobic space in the restuarant with a tiny table. Even when there were larger more open tables clearly available. That wasn’t even the bad part. The service was beyond deplorable. The waiter was more busy talking and chatting with his friends than taking our order or checking on us routinely to see if everything was okay. I had to flag him down repeatedly for water!! It’s water and I have to ask for water? The food took long to come out. So the only explanation I can think of was that they were very busy that night. This night there were only 3 other families there. I have been to the restaurant at peak hours with a waiting line outside and inspite of this their service has been spectacular. But not last night. So it baffles me why such poor horrible service this time. And they didn’t even do anything for the Birthday even after telling them that it was a special occasion. Highly disappointed.
Service was friendly and caring. Hadn’t felt so cared for in years- at any dining experience. Would recommend this for anyone. Wonderful staff. Delicious food.
Great dependable mexican specialties
the best margaritas in nyc
