First time visiting with High School friends since Fall 2019 and we wanted a place with high energy to celebrate. This was perfect. We had a round table/both, so we were all tucked together for intimate conversations and raucous laughter. Service was good, food was great. Best was making new memories with old friends.

We have been to this restaurant many many times. We’ve always had a good experience until now. It seems now that they have re-staffed and reevaluate their food. We walked into an empty restaurant And we’re seated next to the bathrooms when I ask them to move they said they had no other space. The restaurant was empty! When we just want to sit at the bar then they came up to us and asked us to move again because we weren’t in a proper area. And then spent $100 on two enchiladas and two drinks.

Over priced for what we ate. The bottomless margaritas are too sweet (premix).

Delicious food and awesome decor. Drinks were delicious. The Spicy Cucumber is great for those who love a little kick in a drink. This is our third time here and we will be back again! The service was top notch as always.

Food etc always great - The service is usually very good but this time it was just terrible. I guess our guac order got lost- but I had a very hard time flagging somebody down to check up on it. I’m guessing our waiter just had too many tables.

Such a great experience! Lovely to be out living life again (post pandemic, fully vaxxed) and the entire staff at Rosa Mexicano near Union Square was also happy to be back at work. Such a pleasant vibe and everyone was delightfully eager to make our experience the best! I am grateful!

I enjoy eating at Rosa Mexicano, having been visiting the restaurant since the 2000s. The food, ambiance, and drinks(strong margaritas) are delicious. Their service and attention is beyond expectations.  One of my favorite appetizers is guac and chips.  Xia

Greeted at the door immediately. Very welcoming atmosphere; great music, well distanced table arrangement, attentive wait staff. Our waiter was prompt with our drinks and appetizers with a pause before the main course. Relaxed between courses; no rush. The food included old favorites and some new additions. Everything was well prepared and came hot to the table. The evening was a huge success!! I recommend it highly. You won't be disappointed!!

Always loved going to Rosa Mexicano on 18th Street. Glad it's back and running. It was very busy and energentic. Everything was great except at the end of our dessert we wanted out check and we couldn't find out waiter. After nearly 15 minutes I was able to finally catch someone's attention so we could pay. We will definitely be going back.
One complaint though. I think it would be better to have a dessert menu available to read. Our waiter had to tell us twice what the desserts were. It was loud due to everyone having fun, plus wearing a mask muted his voice. My mom has a hearing problem so she was getting uncomfortable. Please consider having a dessert menu printed for your customers. It's better for everyone. Also, we had thought according to your website online that a brownie with chili peppers would be available but that wasn't even offered.

Food was very good. Disappointing that guacamole NOT made table side anymore. Service was erratic and they appear understaffed. No good coffee on menu only over brewed “American “ tasteless
