My friend and I went to Rosa Mexicano for my birthday and couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate. They are known for their guacamole and now I know why. Delicious! Food was great, though my friend had asked for the sauce for her dish to be put on the side (the waiter said it was pretty spicy). It came with the sauce on her tacos and, while she said it was very tasty, it was very spicy and she wasn’t able to finish it. She didn’t want to complain but when the manager came over to see if we enjoyed our meal, I told her about my friend’s dish. She apologized, brought her a glass of milk which gave my friend immediate relief and they didn’t charge us for her meal. For my birthday, they brought over a box with candles and inside was a piece of lime and a shot of tequila. They sang Happy Birthday and put a huge sombrero on my head. Best birthday celebration in a long time! Loved Rosa Mexicano!
This restaurant is very special. Food is excellent and the service exemplary. Strongly recommended.
We enjoy the delicious interesting dishes at this fine neighborhood restaurant.
Truthfully everything was great. The only thing that really kind of hurt them was the wait to get seated. We made an 8:30 pm reservation and didn't get seated until 9:00 pm. It was really crowded and was a little uncomfortable. When asked why the wait was taking so long they said that reservations are done through opentable website and they don't have any control over reservations. Overall the night was Great. My group had a good time. The waiter was knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. Food was amazing. I have been and will continue come here.
The restaurant was seriously overbooked on Saturday night. We arrived for an 8:15 reservation and could barely get the door open due to the crowd of people around the hostess stand. We were told it would be a few minutes and were finally seated at 8:50. The long and uncomfortable wait set the tone for the rest of the evening.
My niece and daughter dined with me to celebrate my niece’s birthday early..they brought a fancy sombrero and candles with a shot of tequila and sang to her. It was delightful..food was terrific, too.
I've been dining at Rosa Mexicano on First Avenue and 58th since 1987/88, and have frequented the Rosa's in Washington DC (three locations, one of which unfortunately closed) and Miami.
Terrific food, especially the guac and the pomegranate frozen margaritas.
A wonderful experience, professional and contientious servers. Very fine food.
The hostess and wait staff were very friendly and attentive. I have been to two of your restaurants and have been extremely happy. The food is very good. The prices are very reasonable.
The food is always excellent and the portions generous. I’ve never had anything that I didn’t love.
It was a nice place overall just a little tight on space
Somewhat small and if crowded can be noisy. Food was decent nothing spectacular
I am a returning Costumer for many years
Enjoying my favorite dishes
Waiter was gracious and welcoming. Very competent also!
I have eaten at Rosa Mexicano in many different locations and never had a bad meal until now. The food was tasty but cold, I was really surprised because they got it out to us fairly quickly but it was not hot at all. We did not complain we just ate it and left. I feel for the price your charging you have to keep up the quality.
Great food, as always!!
As always, everything was terrific. From the Valentine's margaritas to the guacamole to special pork dish and so on....all really nice.
The space was a bit tight but I understand that it was a busy day… Valentine’s Day. But the waitstaff was completely knowledgeable and very polite. Recommendations were spot on. Drinks were amazing. Food was amazing.
I'm a big fan of Rosa Mexicano and have been to 3 different locations in NY. The original First Avenue location was always special. I now think it has declined. The Union Square location is now so much better in terms of the ambience, service and food. I was really disappointed for the first time by the food. The guacamole was subpar and we shared the Valentine's menu "may y tierra" for 2 and it just wasn't that good. Shrimp and lobster had little taste, ditto for the Coca Cola braised chicken. Filet was good. Maybe it was an off night but we left a bit underwhelmed.
We went for a Valentines Day dinner this week. I had already been here twice and liked it so I booked it for Vday since I was spending the day in this neighborhood. Was happily surprised to see Valentines dinner specials on the menu in addition to their regular menu. Service was excellent - friendly servers and busing of tables with a smile. I would call the food "healthy" Mexican cuisine. I am a vegetarian and have many options here. The tableside guacamole is delicious and the chips and tortillas are authentic and made in house. All the food is delicious and very ample sized portions- we took some food home to enjoy the next day. My favorite dish is something called "carbone" which is a skillet meal - it is not fajitas but kind of similar. For dessert the truffles are amazing. I definitely recommend Rosa Mexicana!
the service was extraordinary,; the food was originally and perfectly flavored, and the portions were enormous--I took home a second day's meal
Very friendly staff . Our waiter was very helpful and enthusiastic about his job which is such a pleasant surprise. He took pride in knowing the menu and was very professional.
Food was delicious and had one of the best margaritas here!
So glad we found this place. Went on a Thursday night. Great service and food! We will return!!
Not only is this the flagship restaurant for a large international chain, but the new manager there is a professional woman whom I would recommend above most restaurant managers I've met. We watched two drunk (would be) patrons come into the restaurant and become belligerent. she managed that with true finesse, as well as continuing her role, and not making it a big deal for anyone. All the food is made fresh there and is delicious.
I have been here many times and the food has gone way downhill. Even my white sangria was bad--tasted like watered down orange juice. The guacamole remains excellent, however.
Very busy on a Friday night. Long wait for our reservation, but very good on all counts once we got our table.
Made a 7:30 reservation, didn't get seated until 8:30. Hostesses were rude and clueless. Completely disorganized. Service was sub par. Overall an awful experience.
The (non) service was incredibly slow. No one came unless we called for someone. Guacamole was excellent, everything else was hit and miss.
Service was terrible, waiter forgot initial guacamole order, forgot multiple drink orders each time we ordered a drink had to ask multiple times to receive it. Dirty dishes sat on table for extended period of time and food arrived luke warm. Rosa has always been a favorite so I will not cross it off my list, hopefully this was a very off night and not new service levels.
Guac was excellent, got so full off of that that I couldn't finishing my mushrooms tacos (although those were fantastic too). Margaritas are delicious and STRONG. Perfect girls night dinner.
Great food ,great margaritas , great guacamole, always good service
Authentic Mexican in the city.... very busy so reservations are a must... have to get the guacamole as an appetizer
An oldie but goodie. This place has been around forever yet menu is current and interesting. Very good food, service, value! Open kitchen is always a nice show!
We enjoy the food at this fine Mexican restaurant. It is tasty and interesting. The service is friendly and efficient.
The first and the best Rosa
The best Guacamole I had in my life.
Must eat when you visit NYC.
Excellent Service - The food was great and nice ambience
Delicious food and drinks. Everything was on point this busy Friday night!
Very disappointed . Carne Tempiquena for $29.00 high way robbery for what was served to us!! Quesadillas was OK. Guacamole (not done at table side, as it used to be) just passable. Only saving grace was Joan, the waitress, who was very nice and attentive. Not sure we will go back, although very convenient location for us particularly during inclement weather. Hope Management will take notice of my comments.
Food never disappoints, especially their very famous made-at-the-table guacamole. Service is always good and waitstaff very friendly and helpful in ordering. Atmosphere is fun, and it has a lively bar scene. Mexican food at its finest. We would highly recommend this restaurant to groups or a quiet date evening. Tourists would find it to be a festive evening for them. We will always come here for excellent, authentic Mexican cuisine.
