Food was bland, no flavor. Found hair in our guacamole, drinks took forever to arrive. We were asked how our meal was and we gave honest feedback and they did nothing to remedy the situation. Will not return or recommend.
Food was poor, service was just ok, wouldn't recommend for a lunch meeting.
I reserved for my aniversary but nothing special in there, but it’s ok for a dinner, lunch or a beer with friends. Nobody in the restaurant said nothing about my special day, I didn't see any detail in my table so if you have a special occasion this restaurant is not your best option. The Mexican style ceviche was terrible
Best Mexican in San Francisco. The food us fresh and delicious.
Pretty poor service - they messed up pretty much everything we ordered except the guacamole. Not worth the time considering how many other awesome options there are nearby in SF!
Good food and service but completely dead for a Saturday night
Super expensive for the quality of the food. Food was hit and miss for everyone at our table. Guacalmole and steak quesadilla was good, enchilada suizas where not good at all. Margarita's were $15 and while good, definitely over priced. On the positive side, the service was solid and the wait staff very friendly.
The food was okay. The restaurant has some nice decor and I liked the music. Not too loud. The waiters were friendly and nice. Thanks.
Great food and service!
After an initial visit that was less than we expected, we were contacted by management, who invited us to return to make it up to us. I cannot commend that customer service enough, and the food and service we had on our second visit was outstanding. Sometimes things just don't go right during a dining experience, at any restaurant, and I was most impressed with how management took it on themselves to make things right. I would happily return.
Service was good, food was good. Over priced.
This used to be my go-to place until yesterday. We were not received well from the beginning. They were not able to find our reservation in their system, yet they were accommodating other parties that didn’t not make reservation beforehand. We made reservation through OpenTable for 11:30am, and we beat the heavy foot during lunch time. Our waiter never placed the other while other tables who got there before us were served, ate, paid, and left. The party that arrived after us had their drinks and guacamole before us.
The focus looks to be centered on attending to a particular and perhaps specific demographic. Which is really sad. All walks of life frequenting this restaurant are all paying customers. Pity because the space is really nice, food is constantly great, same with drinks. But service is horrid.
We like the many menu choices. Many with a nice new Mexican flair. Prices reasonable. Service has always been friendly.
we liked the fish taco that's why we came back...but, we thought it was better the first time we've dined here...the beef taco is just okay. the avocado with chips is the best!!! we highly-recommend to our friends and family!
The ambiance is great! The spicy guacamole was outstanding! Cadillac Margarita was perfect! We were one of the first ones there having made reservations form 11:30 am. Once we ordered the food took a long time to be served. I noticed that a large group seated after us was served b4 us! Our server Benjamin was very attentive and kept letting us know that our food was coming soon. When food arrived it was just warm (I like my food steaming hot) but since I was so hungry I just sucked it up. I ordered the Alambre de Camarones, the shrimps were over-cooked. :o( The serrano chiles & onions were overly charred but the salsa verde picante saved the dish. I'll go again soon to see if this was just an off day b/c of the personable & professional server Benjamin and the other pluses that should allow for a second chance.
We stuffed ourselves with the excellent chips and guac, and pitcher of sangria, so could barely finish our main meals, but it was all good! Nice vegetarian options which I appreciated. The drinks are delicious and it's a great place for large groups.
Everyone’s food was cold when it was served. Very disappointing. It shouldn’t have been served like that.
Long wait for meal especially for not being a full house.
JORGE!!!!! He is the one that makes the difference every time we visit Rosa Mexicano. We have visited NYC, MIA and SFO and truly Jorge’s service is what makes the visit worth it.
The enchiladas were not what I was expecting ‘y tortillas were hard.
Unlike many SF restaurants, getting a reservation at Rosa Mexicano was very easy. I suspect that walk-ins would not have a problem either. The atmosphere and decor are not what you'd typically expect at a Mexican restaurant, but were quite pleasant and relaxed. The food was good, starting with the freshly made chips and guacamole. The menu is fairly varied (my carnitas were excellent), and the portions are generous. I ended up taking nearly half of my entree home. The initial service was prompt, friendly and helpful. During the meal our server checked in periodically without being overbearing. If you're looking for a good Mexican restaurant, Rosa Mexicano is a solid choice.
I loved my meal. Very authentic service was superb!
Rosa Mexicano is just always a amazing experience. Great food and drinks.
Great for groups.
I really love this place, me and my partner come here often and always enjoy the food and the service.
Food is good, but not very spicy (even when you asked for extra spicy). Service is fine for food but really slow for wine on two separate occasions.
I liked the food. It was good, and wasn't heavy, more like healthy.
Best guacamole in the Bay Area. The Mole Poblano is also very nice as are the tacos.
When the weather is good, which is most of the time, it's great to sit outside at night. Enjoy the cool breeze and night sky as you're served really delicious food from friendly, polite staff. The drinks are great and selection large but not overwhelming. The food didn't arrive immediately but I didn't really mind as it was such a wonderful night. Plus the chips and salsa kept me busy. Its not that noisy, despite being at an intersection. Just a few busses now and then plus the odd "ding ding" from the old streetcars.
Food was quite tasty, but... Service was painfully slow - place was busy but not busting at the seams. Way too expensive - happy hour bill for two was $80 w/o tip. Their happy hour prices are like other restaurants' regular prices.
Great cocktails 5/5. Food was very good. Service was horrible and we were the only ones in the restaurant
Best Mexican in town. The shrimp tacos and quesadilla are the best we have ever had.
Unfortunately the experience was ruined by horrible service. Couldn't even get chips with our $16 guacamole. Took about 30 minutes and 4 different requests. They finally comped the guac but we did finally get our chips, after the main and before dessert. Sad.
The guacamole is pricey and just OK. The server forgot an order and mixed up a few things. Nothing terrible, but still annoying.
My first visit to Rosa Mexicana in sf and it didn’t disappoint! Guacamole was great as well as my cucumber margarita and chicken enchiladas were just right !
Great food wonderful service, there was a mix up with salad order but when pointed out, they immediately brought it out and even made it complimentary. Guacamole is super good.
Very good, A little overpriced for the quality
The food was mediocre for the cost. Guacamole as an appetizer was $16 and 3 bland fish tacos cost $20. Felt I was paying for location and that's it. And when a non-server picked up our check and I asked if he could split the bill between the 2 cards attached to the bill,he got all flustered and handed the bill to our actual waiter (who was very nice) and quickly walked away like it was too much ask. Our waiter easily obliged. I will not being go back here.
Fantastic Gucamole! My business team loved having lunch here.
Great food, friendly and professional staff. Good place to just lay back and enjoy food and friends.
