About Rosa Mexicano - San Francisco
In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened in 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, prepared 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 our dramatic 15 ft. water wall.

Rosa Mexicano - San Francisco Ratings and Reviews
Not nearly as good as the Rosa we tried in New York near Lincoln Center. Guacamole was lumpy and lacked flavor of that in New York. Fresh fish was mediocre, and churros (which were comped) were doughy and undercooked. A real disappointment after a great meal in New York.
I go to Rosa Mexicano quite often because I work nearby and the food is delicious. One on going issue I have is with the front of house hosts. They always seem to not listen to what is being said or they look annoyed when your reservation has to be decreased in party sized. Attitudes like that should not be shown in any restaurant. I understand that the restaurant can get busy during lunch but if you have a reservation, please don't make it look like you're second guessing about seating us inside. This has happened multiple times yet I still come back. Please fix this. Thank you.
ROSAS IS CENTRALLY LOCATED AND HAS A GREAT AMBIENCE. THE FOOD AND BAR QUALITY IS NOT VERY GOOD. THE DRINKS WERE SO SWEET THAT WE HAD TO SEND THEM BACK AND THE TACOS WERE COLD . THE MEAT INSIDE WAS ALSO BLAND. THE GUACAMOLE MADE AT YOUR TABLE WAS FANTASTIC ! I WOULD RECOMMEND ROSAS AS A KID FRIENDLY NOT A GREAT FOOD RESTAURANT
Went for Happy Hour with a couple friends. Bar was lively with a several high tops, bench seating in the back and a long table for group of 10-12ppl. Service was great - they kept chips/salsas/drinks filled for us. We just got a wide array of tacos with sangria, which were all pretty tasty. Will def go back for another HH and possibly dinner.
Nice location & a really big restaurant space near the Ferry Building. We had guacamole while waiting for our friends. It was good, but the cost was $15! For our entrees I ordered fish tacos, my husband had Carnitas; both were so greasy we couldn’t finish them.
Save your money and go to the Mission for Mexican food.
Came from East Bay to dine with SF relatives near Ferry Building. Delicious variety of dishes identified by where in Mexico they originate. Shared delicious carnitas and beef brisket tacos. Enjoyed the chips and salsa (on the house). Generous servings. Busy weekday lunch crowd at 12:30. Quieted down by 1:30.
We celebrated my granddaughter‘s fourth birthday at Rosa Mexicana. The staff was very accommodating considering her food allergies and young age. She had her first Shirley Temple and churros complete with a candle and Happy Birthday sang by staff. A memorable day!
We had a great meal here. It's not super crowded and the food was overall very fresh and flavorful. The margaritas were well done. My friends had been to the sister restaurant in NYC and said that this was very similar. I will keep this in mind for Mexican.
Guillermo was over server. Very attentive, prompt service. Our food was great and even though the restaurant was full we could hear each other at our table and not thw others seated around us. I love the decor and atmosphere of this restaurant and the manager is present for any service issues that may come up.
Service was absolutely awful. We were taking clients for a business lunch and had to ask for service after waiting almost 15-20 min. The server was so slow, constantly forgetting to bring us salsa and drinks we ordered. She never brought us menus or offered food, which is just weird on her end because we were hungry. I had to ask multiple times for a menu, she was a ghost. Would not recommend!
