Everything was great ! 2 little things lighting could be more flattering and the brunch menu should be served at brunch (we had to ask for it )

The food is so delicious. From tortillas and chips made on-premise to amazing tacos and carnitas. The tres leches and the churros were excellent.

Food was just ok. WAY OVERPRICED, and they don’t tell you the guacamole is double the price ($30) if you get a large size/portion. The server suggested it for the number of people in our party and you don’t realize until the bill arrives that it’s the single most expensive thing on there bc the menu doesn’t mention doubling the price for a larger serving. The kicker was that the huge price was due to their use of two avocados instead of one. Not worth it, folks.

We had the quesadillas chicken and steak. Both were great. The guacamole is outstanding!
Since it was Thanksgiving we had delicious apple and pumpkin pie . We left full and happy!

This was for a Sunday lunch. Our waitress was particularly friendly and helpful, and the meal was delicious as ever. I am sorry to see, however, that things that were brought to the table as part of the hospitality are now a surcharge. I an thinking of chips and salsa to start, and rice and beans with the meal. A Mexican meal with no rice and beans?

Rosa Mexicano is not at all what it used to be. Completely different menu (much worse - also physical menus are impossible to hold and look through) and the food quality was awful - both of our entrees were cold and the portions were comically small. We were also very rushed to the point where we were in and out within 45 minutes. Service was cordial but they did an overall terrible job - super disorganized and rushed. They essentially turned what used to be a nicer Mexican restaurant into an Applebee’s. Tragic.

Such a disappointing experience. Service was lacking: waitress was not attentive and thus another server had to assist us. Food and drinks were were not as good as our previous visits. Food orders weren’t put in or lost. Will return for happy hour at the bar, only.

This is not the first time I've eaten here but the first time I tried their churros French toast. It was crispy. I just wish there were more strawberries on it. Mom ordered the filet. Not much filet or mushrooms. Too much sauce. Our waiter service was outstanding!

Waiter was superb; food was not. Fish tacos smelled fishy, guacamole serving WAY too small for $15, and chicken enchiladas (mole, suiza and mestizo) so-so. Also, they have no shed, so no outdoor dining really possible in cold weather. Very disappointed in all except excellent waiter.

Great place to celebrate an occasion but noise level is unbearable- no need for loud music on top of the already bad acoustics

I had asked for a booth, if possible and this time it was not possible so we were seated at a table for two in a corner around the entrance way. It took a little getting used to acclimate but the staff was so great we forgot it wasn't a booth. Always a consistent delicious experience!

Look - I love this place for special occasions, excellent festive atmosphere, beautiful decor in a WOW space. Been coming here for years. Last night, not the best experience.. Our drink orders were wrong, our tequila shots were watered down by 50% or more. Our waiter was a very nice guy, but it was nearly 30 minutes after our drinks were delivered to come take our food order. Was with a fun group so didn't mind enjoying our friends. One of us had the filet mignon and this was literally smaller than a deck of cards for $35. It's not even the price that i'm complaining about, it just wasn't even a serving of meat. The manager came over and agreed and had another steak put on to add to ours but the rest of the table finished eating before it was delivered. For 4 people with tip it was nearly a $500 bill which is fine since we were celebrating an occasion - but for that price we shouldn't be having these issues. I'd still recommend this place, perhaps they're just having an off nite, or can read this and correct their issues.

Have eaten at Rosa many times, but this is the first time in a long time because of COVID. Very much appreciate their diligence with checking vax status, providing hand sanitizer, and the wearing of masks. Nice job.

Really great food and top notch service. And, the sound/audio/music level was perfect (no awkward silence and you can hear everyone at the table). Always a wonderful time at Rosa and perfect for larger parties.
