Perfect For:
  • Good for Birthdays
  • Fun
  • Good for Groups
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.

It was really good; the guacamole was amazing. The food was a bit pricey for what it is, but for a special event or a date it’s perfect.

Roughly thrown together, almost inedible food , so-so service, guacamole good but not made at table, Rosa Mexicano is not what it used to be and is merely an overpriced Mexican family oriented chain restaurant. Would not recommend. Maybe the Lincoln Center location is better?

My friend and I meet in the city for lunch at least once a month, and our go-to restaurant is Rosa Mexicano Union Square. Easily accessible by public transportation, the restaurant welcomes you with cheerful hospitality and warm smiles. They always try to give us our favorite table, and almost always succeed. The food is delicious, beautifully plated, and deeply satisfying. Service is gracious. We arrive smiling and hungry, and leave smiling and well fed.

Enjoyed the variety of authentic Mexican foods in an energetic atmosphere. I ordered my favorite, vegetarian Chili Rellena, and it did not disappoint. Margaritas were on the skimpy side but tasty. Reasonable prices for Manhattan eatery.

The food was good, but the service wasn't great. I received two out of the four margaritas that I ordered. As soon as we were finished eating, even though I ordered another margarita, we were immediately brought the check and the table was cleared. It wasn't even 10 pm on Saturday night but they clearly wanted us out of there. Pretty disappointing since I hadn't seen my friends in a long time and was looking forward to a long dinner with multiple drinks.

Rosa Mexicana has always been one of our favorites. The food is genuinely Mexican and so full of flavor. The guacamole is the best I’ve ever had. And (bonus) I have coeliac and they have a wonderful variety of GF dishes that they handle quite well. So, highly recommend and will come again!

Came here for early Sunday brunch with an out of town friend, and the experience was great. We got there around 11:45 and sat right away. The place is huge, but didn’t have a lot of people yet, so everyone was spaced well. Our conversation still felt private, which is tough in NYC. Food was excellent. I had the breakfast tacos, and she did a cheese enchilada. Complimentary cornbread in a skillet to start.

Not as good as the Rosa Mexicano near Lincoln Center. The guacamole was delicious and fresh as expected, and the white wine recommendation was quite good. However, the fish entree was sub par. The bed of vegetables and shrimp were cold, and the steamed bass was dry. Very disappointed. It's a lively scene, but if you'd like a somewhat quieter spot to talk, it's not the place for that. On top of the noise level, the music is loud enough to feel intrusive.

Rosa Mexicano is way overrated. I've lived in the city for 22 years and now I know why I stopped going here 15 years ago. The food is not good. The atmosphere is extremely Vegas. Where did all these people come from?!?!
