Since 1984, Rosa Mexicano has been the standard bearer of authentic, regionally inspired Mexican cuisine. This tradition continues at Rosa Mexicano’s fourth location, an intimate neighborhood spot in the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. The restaurant is centered around house ground masa, made fresh each day, and also includes Masa Y Agave, a tequila and agave bar boasting over 400 agave spirits and craft cocktails.

    This was one of my most dreadful dining experiences in NY since moving here in 2000. And I say that as someone who has been at least a dozen times at one of Rosa Mexicans’s other two locations in Manhattan. But they are worlds apart from the Tribeca location which is hugely disappointing in terms of food and ambience.

    Server was nice but service was slow. Food came out cold. Food was not good. Really gone down hill over the years and will not go back.

    Being frequent visitors to Rosa Mexicano at their Union Square location, we had to try the Tribeca location this time around given the temporary closure of the Union Square location; however, it was a huge disappointment, with poor meat quality and undercooking of the skirt steaks for 2 of the party of 4. Never again to this location. Can’t wait for the Union Square location to reopen.

    I told the waitress that it was my friend's birthday, we even ordered a dessert thinking they would bring it with a candle, and they never did. Incredibly upsetting.

    This is our favorite Rosa Mexicano location. It's a little noisy but the food, drink and service are always good. However, this time, the food wasn't as good as before. The appetizer wasn't hot enough. The meat was very hard and my favorite side dish, Mexican corn on the cob was very small and bottom wasn't well cooked. The dessert was OK but it was better before. A little disappointed. I hope everything will be better next time.

    Hostess forgot we were at the bar took 30 minutes past our reservation to sit after we reminder her. Server was terrible and inattentive took 40 minutes with no food or drinks to finally cash out. Unfortunate bc the first time we went here it was a great experience. Would not recommend going to anyone.

    The staff were kind but seemed inexperienced. Weren’t familiar with the menu. If you love Rosa Mexicano on 1St Ave. stay away from the Murray location. We all wanted the Filet with tequila mushroom cream sauce and when it arrived after one taste we all sent it back. It’s not flavorful and not the same dish that you love from First Ave. The kids also took one bight of their taquitos and pushed the plate aside. After we approached them about our disappointment a nice lady tried to offer us something else. It felt like a cafeteria experience. I had high hopes for this restaurant since it’s only two blocks from Four Seasons. We won’t go back!

    The waiter (Freddie) was up-selling us, interrupting us, and pushing us out. He was clearly disgusted with the hostess for sitting us on a 4-top table when we were only a couple.

    Doubt I’ll be back. Location is convenient but there are so many better Mexican restaurants in NYC. Server was friendly but service was subpar. We waited over 30 minutes for her to come back after taking our drink order when asking for just “a few more minutes”. It’s not like it was crowded and she was running around. Street corn was amazing. Everything else including drinks were blah and overpriced.

    Sometimes staff members make a good night great--that was certainly the case this past weekend at Rosa Mexicano in TriBeCa. The manager Leah was so unbelievably welcoming as if we dined there a thousand times. Amazing drinks, she even brought out a few nibbles for us at the bar while we waited for our table. Leah then sat with us and pointed out her favorites on the menu--we ordered whatever she told us and we were not disappointed. Food was great, beautiful space, and all enhanced because of one outgoing and excellent employee. We will be back for sure.

    Go for drinks avoid the food. Guacamole tasted like it was cut with squash, cucumber or something. For $16, I expected avocado. Also tacos lacked flavor. Margaritas were great
