This was my first visit. My friends and I really enjoyed it. The only issue was that the waiter seemed to forget we were there at times when we needed something.

not my favorite of all the Rosa's - orders were all messed up - drinks and food; food was not as good as all the others and the menu selection was different as well

High priced food for what you receive.
Portions small and chips/salsa offered, but not told it was a charge. Overcharged for 4 pieces a mini shrimp $29. Frozen margarita drink had a lousy taste.

The hostess service was friendly and attentive. The table was sticky and dirty. The food and drink prices high and the food way less than mediocre. The guacamole was a large portion but flavorless. The chicken fajitas had no seasoning. Was underwhelmed.

Not too sure who’s idea was it to charge for chips when ordering the guacamole!!! And who’s idea was it to serve vegetables with guacamole! Never heard or seen this and the idea was not too bright at all. Chips are always the choice when eating guacamole, I get it that you are trying to make money during these times, but maybe you can come up with another idea, like charging a dollar extra for a drinks or something to that nature.

Great view, unusual and delicious menu, beautiful presentation! Very comfortable with CDC restrictions for Covid. Would highly recommend the ceviche with octopus, the guacamole, and the street tacos. The shrimp ones are very spicy!

We ate outside and social distancing between the tables was practiced. The wait staff wore gloves and masks and you needed a mask on to enter. I felt comfortable and safe. This was my 1st outing to a resturant since March. I'd go there again.

Hostess with rude attitude needs to be placed in the kitchen and not be able to interact with customers. They tried to seat us right next to another party. Had to insist that we sit elsewhere to maintain enough room for social distancing. If you make reservations, you have to sit inside and not outside? Be sure to ask what your dish comes with...menu has changed probably to help them recoup lost profits. Food was meh. I will not be going back.

Everything was great! I knew the guacamole wouldn’t be table side but I figured I could still customize it (I hate tomatoes) but it’s made big batch. It was still good. I loved eating on the patio too!

Ceviche was with whole shrimp and veggies. Unusual as it's normally chopped so you can out it on a chip. Service was lacking. Food is OK, nothing to rave about. Their famous guacamole had no taste. Maybe bc they do not use lime?

Arrived for my reservation and as told that open table made my reservation out of their time slots which at 9pm. However, they did seat us. With that said, we felt rushed during the entire dining experience. Waiter did not take the time or interest to make our experience inviting. I have been to the restaurant many times before so this was absolutely disappointing.

We had a reservation in the system; however, when we arrived to the restaurant they had no wait staff and you had to get your own food and drinks and then find your own seat. That should’ve made upfront when I made the reservation.
