In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened on the upper east side of New York City. Playing a leading role in defining what was then a "new" cuisine to American diners, Rosa Mexicano delivers authentic Mexican cooking in an accessible, stylishly festive atmosphere. Rosa Mexicano's menu features a range of award-winning signature dishes, including our Guacamole en Molcajete, in a traditional lava rock mortar. Described by Time Out New York as "green ecstasy in a stone bowl," it is prepared table side and served with house made chips, warm corn tortillas and condiment salsas. Rosa Mexicano is also known for the Frozen Pomegranate Margarita, as well as the stylish and festive ambiance that includes an illuminated water wall.

It was a great visit. As soon as my fiance and I arrived, we were seated. By using the app, we bypassed several groups of people that were waiting to be seated.

Normally love this place but felt rushed during our last visit. Almost like we were just tourists they were moving through and didn’t care about because they’d never see us again. Food was ok - although fundido was delicious. Overall just a bleh experience. Disappointing.

I’d recommend that the servers try not to be too pushy on sales. While we understand that sales drive business forward, our server crossed the comfort line by trying to push appetizers. After we said that we didn’t want an appetizer, he asked, “so, are you going to go with the queso or the table side guacamole?”. We politely declined AGAIN, and he walked away seemingly frustrated. the server lost our confidence that he Had little interest regarding what our preferences were which had made us question our restaurant selection choice.

Overall very disappointing. Not the restaurant I remember.
We ordered the table side guacamole, and to our shock it wasn’t made table side. They just brought it out and put it on our table.
I ordered the stuffed chicken based on other reviews and I was really surprised that it came out dry and cold.
My wife ordered the shrimp quesadilla’s and they were awful. Came to table cold and were very weak. She noted that the Qdoba quesadilla’s are far and away better.
We will not be going back anytime soon.

I was there right on time for my reservation at 7:45 cause I had to be at 9:30 in the fare wheel for a ride that I bought before. The waiter didn’t come until 8pm cause it was so busy and I understand that, but the food took over 1 hr to come to the table and it was horrible; cold and the steak over cooked. Anyways we rushed to eat it (we literally just took a bite and we left). Of course it ruin my date and I missed the rest of my plans cause I got out to late.
This used to be my favorite restaurant I love their guacamole and the service. Definitely not going back anytime soon it makes me sad cause when people use to ask me what was my favorite restaurant I have always said Rosa Mexicano “the one in National Harbor”.

The food was ok. The food use to be better. The noise level of the music was too loud to hear the waiter. Several times I had to ask the waiter to repeat what he said.

Great place to sit down to eat. Would recommend the medium guacamole if you do get it. Mild tasted somewhat bland, the medium has a bit more flavor.

Avoid the table that is at the corner of the open floor area, foot traffic will surround you from all sides (like you are basically sitting in the middle of a hallway or sidewalk).

The food was good but not hot. It seems like Rosa has lost a little something. We were celebrating our 20th Anniversary and no one wished us a Happy Anniversary even though it was stated within the reservation. Just a little disappointing.
