Just blocks away from Manhattan’s lively Union Square, our third New York location provides a warm and vibrant setting for our award-winning authentic Mexican cuisine. Designed by David Rockwell, the restaurant features architectural accents inspired by the late, famed Mexican architect, Luis Barragan. The internally illuminated electric-blue tiled water wall features cliff diver figurines and candles among the cascading water to separate the bar from the main dining room. Warm terracotta and yellow colors with hot pink accents are featured throughout the restaurant as well as traditional, one-of-a-kind Mexican crafts, fabrics and artwork. This combination creates the perfect backdrop for the festive atmosphere and innovative Mexican cuisine of Rosa Mexicano.

You can’t ever disappoint with the guacamole; although the price is s little high. Overall, the food and drinks are good and usual NYC popular spot prices

Nice place, I enjoyed the decor, service was excellent and food and drinks were good. I wish there was a greater variety of vegetarian foods however, I was just happy they had options for me😊

Excellent place! Warm and friendly staff. My fish was delicious and so was the glucamole. Great place for a date, birthday or any other occasion. Low noise and tables far from each other, which is rare in NYC. I enjoyed the vibrant, cheerful ambiance.

Came here for a special occasion of one of my friends. We were looking forward to a quality meal at a reasonable price. The waitress pushed the quacamole dip (made at your table) in the large size given our 4 hungry dinner companions, however for the amount of actual guacamole, realize that you are paying a whopping $30 for this meager amount of dip. Of the 4 at our table, half of them ordered the tres enchilada plate - Not exceptionally exciting, but decent. Kinda miss some of the truly special entrees like the short ribs cooked in paper. Might be looking for (yet) another alternative next time when in the mood for Mexican.

My friend and I ordered everything to share but I think we would’ve been better off just ordering our own dishes because the servings are not too generous. We ordered the sopa de tortilla for starters which was okay, the presentation was nice but the soup was too dense. The ceviche was really good. We also ordered the trio of enchiladas and I really enjoyed the mole one. It was very authentic and tasted exactly like the one from Mexico. I highly recommend the platanos. The side of rice and beans was a bit unnecessary and we ended but not even eating much of it as the rice was very hard and the beans were cold. The worst part of this experience was the drinks. I ordered a frozen tropical with the mango flavor but did not enjoy it at all. The mango syrup tasted expired and the drink was very watery even though it was supposed to be a frozen. By the time our entrees arrived, the drink was mostly watery with large chunks of ice. I ended up with a very bad stomach ache that night and an even worse one the next day. Our waiter was nothing short of great. He was very nice and was never overbearing.

We have a tradition of going for New Year's Eve - always a wonderful time as they distribute noisemakers and have a countdown.

In spite of busy NYE, the food and service were excellent. We celebrate the countdown here many years and the quality and quantity of the four course menu was one of the best this time. We will be back again next year!
