    The service was very poor. Waitress was extremely slow. The Manager had to bring water & drinks to the table once she finally put the order in. We ordered the guacamole, which was very good. But there was no point in having them make it by the table. The server had no interest in what he was doing, so we had no interest either. Waste of time. We ordered a second drink which was never made or at least never brought to the table. Everything took too long, especially the drinks, which should be the first thing you do. The place is big and the sound echoes off the walls. This was not an enjoyable experience, and it was a special dinner, as it was my niece’s last night with us. The waitress gave us a voucher for free chips & salsa because she forgot the drink. We left it in the table. We will not be going back.

    I go here at least 2-3 times a month but the service yesterday was horrendous. I had to wait 25 min for drinks and an extra 15 min for my wife’s plate they forgot to put in .

    Our tacos with rice and beans were absolutely delicious as always. However, our nacho chips were very stale and tasted like they were cooked in old oil so they were inedible. Waiter also forgot to bring my extra order of rice and beans. Otherwise, servers were very friendly. Rosa Mexicano is our favorite Mexican restaurant in NJ so we remain very satisfied regular customers!

    Great evening at Rosa’s, as expected! Tasty and appropriately sized appetizers…Empanadas, Ceviche ,Queso Fundito, and Flautas…all winners!The Parrillada entree for 4, was more than enough and offered a balanced protein and vegetable selection.

    The waiter was excellent. The food has definitely gone down hill from years ago. The prices are a bit high for the quality being served. If it were better quality, the cost would be in line. The drinks were meh. It was 85+ degrees outside, the inside felt like it was about80. Not great. Overall it was average. Without our excellent waiter, I believe his name was michael, it would have been sub par.

    It was super busy as it was Mother's Day, it took 20 minutes for us to flag a manager. No one had greeted us, no water, etc. Once management got involved we got a server and the meal was excellent.
