    Waitress was rude and seemed annoyed when we asked her to repeat answer to question do to loudness and when asked for larger glass for water and lemon. We had to ask other staff to get assistance during meal service as she was busy speaking to other wait staff in the back by bus station. Location amazing and definitely needed reservations.

    Had dinner here before a concert we were in town for at MGM. The drinks were great and the food was good. Had the guacamole tasting menu and birria tacos. We had a great table to see the fireworks. Wish the Atlanta location was still open.

    Felt like the price was not worth the experience. The menus had stains on them and the tables weren't the cleanest. Nice to be water front and the actual food was delicious. Felt the restaurant was understaffed though the staffed tried to make it work with what they had.

    The staff was accommodating from the moment we walked in. They were able to convert our 2 tables (4 and 2) to a 6 person table with little wait despite being a busy evening. The waitress was helpful, attentive and pleasant. The complimentary Veteran's Day meals were very much appreciated, the best shows of appreciation from a restaurant in town. They provided 3 Veterans, and their families, a wonderful evening celebrating Veteran's Day. Thank you!

    The restaurant and bathrooms were very dirty. The food was bland and rushed we had our whole service finished and the bill in hand 20 minutes after we walked in the door. Way over priced. The one good thing were the cocktails. The bill was given in electronic form and you had to pay with your phone, input a ton of personal info which was extremely difficult due to the complete lack of cell service. Just a really poor experience all around.

    We got chicken and steak tacos and they were delicious… The restaurant is very dark so it’s hard to see your menus. We sat by the window so it was a nice view. Our waiter was not very friendly and barely came back to our table.

    I have patronize this location on several occasions but I was totally disappointed to find out that certain items were no longer on the menu. For example, the fajita selections and the swirl frozen margarita. The overall food selection was not all that great and unfortunately I will not be returning to the restaurant. I get better quality of food from Uncle Julios.

    I was extremely disappointed with my visit to Rosa Mexicano yesterday. For starters the table we were seated at had this nasty funk like it was wiped down with a dirty rag. There was another party behind us and when they left, I noticed that no one wiped or cleaned the table before a new party was seated. The food was mediocre! The ceviche was not fresh at all, the crispy shrimp appetizer tasted like it was drowned in mayonnaise and there was even a loose waffle fry on the plate. Waitress service was average and showed no concern. Tacos were disappointing as well, honestly tastes like their aiolis are made with store bought Mayo. Drinks were okay. The best thing we had was probably the guacamole, but even then the presentation was bad. We got crab meat guac and the crab meat wasn’t brought out until after the guac was made, which was confusing. All in all do not waste your time here if you’re looking for authentic, delicious Mexican food.

    The chopped salad missed the mark. I always order this but they’ve changed it up. Now there’s much more lettuce, which is fine, but barely a handful of the toppings. Cucumber is not listed among the toppings but they added it much to my disappointment. I asked for a different dressing rather than have the ranch. The only thing the server could offer was oil and vinegar so I was a little disappointed, again. Added grilled shrimp for a whopping $10 but only received 4 maybe medium-sized ones. Thank goodness the chips and salsa have remained the same. I’ll have to find something else next time.

    The service was surprisingly bad I had to go to Hostess Desk to ask that someone come and take drink order after waiting for 15 minutes and they were not busy at all. When we were done eating the waitress just came over to the table with the check never asked did we want anything else another drink, coffee, desert nothing just here is your check pay it and get out. Second time this happened and when you book reservation it ask you are you celebrating a special occasion so I put Mother-In-Law Birthday they never even acknowledged why ask if you plan to do nothing such a waste of time.

    This was a surprise “errand” for my husband for his birthday. Wanted something out daughter could participate in as her schedule is very hectic. I noted on the reservation that it was for his birthday, and the restaurant went out of their way to help us celebrate and our server Douglas was outstanding, attentive, gracious, and made our lunch so memorable !!! Thank you Douglas and thank you Rosa Mexicano for making a wonderful birthday memory for us! Open Table is perfect!!!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always amazing and taste great. However, I’m a fan of there fresh guacamole and chips. This is the second time I’ve been and they charged me for it but didn’t bring it out. Everything else was amazing.
