In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened on the Upper East Side of New York City. Having served legions of fans for 25 years, we are thrilled to bring Rosa Mexicano's signature brand of authentic Mexican cooking in a relaxed, stylish setting to the West Coast for the first time. The 205-seat restaurant debuts at L.A. Live, a 5.6 million-square-foot sports and entertainment development in the heart of the revitalized downtown area, alongside many of the city's greatest attractions, including the Staples Center and Nokia Theatre. Bathed in our signature vibrant hues, this location features our award-winning guacamole en molcajete, our signature frozen pomegranate margaritas, modern architectural elements, flexible private dining options and comfortable outdoor patio seating--a perfect environment to introduce you to the festive atmosphere and delicious cuisine of Rosa Mexicano.

Server seemed too busy for us. Doubt she was sitting down doing nothing; however why would refilling water be so complicated. Was i suppose to keep ordering alcohol for better service? Thanks to management who was walking by that I finally received a refill AFTER eating my diner. Chile relleno needs a refresh. Carnitas are bombs. $40 parking is definitely too much. The OpenTable experience was nice. Shame the restaurant is not up to par. Rosa Mexicano there wont be a next time.

So I am walking in with my family very excited to try this restaurant(Valentine’s Day @ 1pm) and the front person a girl with a black blazer that suppose to greet us with a big smile had the worst attitude and made us feel uncomfortable like we didn’t belong there. So I’m trying to make conversation to break the ice well it didn’t work. She literally just threw the menu at us it was bad, I remained calm because it was a special day with my mother and son. She needs to humble herself. But as soon as our table server approached our table(black lady) she made everything perfect my expectations were met thanks to her. This restaurant needs to hire more people like her not like the girl at the front. Most likely I will never go back just to not deal with a bad experience again.

Portions of food are small but quality is good (don't come hungry); Really good chips/salsa and the Cadillac Margarita is great! Atmosphere is just right (not busy) and the décor is spot-on. Overall good experience and perfect for a date (you may want to snack before coming).

Me and some friends decided to eat here after exploring the Grammy Museum. First of all, the guacamole is a must!! They make it right in front of you and it is absolutely amazing! I had the eggs Benedict... which comes with a small portion of potatoes. I love that the portions were just the right size. The eggs Benedict is on sopas, which is good, but a little too on the crunchy side for me. I tried the Mexican Colada, which is served in a very cute little Terra cota cup...it was yummy & refreshing! Nice atmosphere...good service...decent pricing...I’d definitely go again!

My family and I have been here several times, however, this weekend, my daughter, her boyfriend and another couple went. They said service was "ok" food was "bad". I asked if they complained and they said no (they are in their 20's and shy) They just said they went to the game and ate there instead. Their final words when I said I was sorry they had a bad meal, was "Let's never go there again, too many other restaurants to choose from in the area"

If you have an event at LA Live or staples center - it's a great place to have a meal. Love the all you can eat rice and beans. Food was overall really good - but definitely a little pricey. Margaritas are on the weak side - we had to order shots to supplement so it got expensive. But overall great experience.

Service was terrible - server didn't show up to take my drink order for 20 minutes until after I arrived. Forgot to bring plate for side dishes. Really unfortunate experience. Wouldn't recommend until they get their act together.

Great as always. Tried some new appetizers and they were extremely tasty. The nachos de tres quesos were my favorite. I had the chicken, next time I will try the beef....yum Flautas are also a must try. Love this place before any events in the LA Live center.

Great service and staff. Table side Gauc is a must have.

Heading to a concert or LA Live event and need a great meal with great service, this is your place.
