    Yesterday's experience was the worse. I have doing brunch here for three months as a resident of National Harbor. The wait staff seemed annoyed that we spotted two empty tables outside after they told us there were no more. But we settled on a table inside, no worries. The first booth we were taken to had a large gaping hole in the seat and I was like you really don't plan on sitting us here to do. After we were seated two booths down some dirt fell down off the wooden rafter. I then looked up and the ceiling was disgusting. DIRT was visibly around all of the intake vents, so I took pictures. I then called the manager over to tell him about the dirt falling on us and to point out the ceilings. This man said it was all being replaced and didn't apologize or anything or offer any other solutions, like to move us. I spend thousands of dollars here, but yesterday was my last dollar spent. The servers are inconsistent sometimes they give free chips, and sometimes its $4. The COMPLIMENTARY bread that we almost always have to beg for was cold. I have had some awesome experiences here but yesterday just wiped those experiences away because I left feeling awful, but I still paid a great tip and was kind.

    Your menu pre COVID was more robust and exciting. Not thrilled with your current menu. The pork shank didn’t even come with rice or sauces. Your drinks were good. A+ on that. Please have a maintenance person come and fix your womens restroom!! One working sink out of 3. People literally in line to wash their hands, Including wait staff. We drove an hour to go to national harbor and had great memories the last time we were at Rosa Mexicano. So we were heavily disappointed. There are way too many other nicer restaurants at National Harbor that we could have gone to. You need to step up or you’re not gonna have the customers you had in the past.

    The food here is delicious. It has been a while since we’d eaten at Rosa so we craved the table side guacamole and drinks which didn’t disappoint. Since we had an early reservation, we chose to only order one entree and the menu said the Chile rellenos was “great for sharing.” We were shocked when one small pepper arrived. Wish our server would have mentioned it. For $20 maybe the chef could offer two peppers so this dish is truly “great for sharing.”

    We have been frequenting Rosa Mexicano for years when we come to National Harbor. The food is so good! Last night we had the ceviche trio as an appetizer. All three of them were outstanding but quite unique from each other. We also love the guacamole and we never go without a side of the corn. We have had many of the main dishes and have never been disappointed. I just wanted to mention that last night we chose to eat outside and it started to sprinkle. Within minutes they had everyone who wanted to, moved inside. They made the switch easily and they were so accommodating.

    The tuna was over spiced. We understand it was spicy tuna, however, it was beyond a spicy seasoning. Hot enough to make it undesirable. The seat in our booth had rips that were not only visible but also uncomfortable to seat on. And the bathroom looked like a gas station bathroom - dirty, and falling apart. Such a shame for a restaurant we’ve grown to love over the years. We will not be coming back to this one…

    We began celebrating our daughter’s bday starting with lunch at Rosa Mexicano. Since there were 4 of us, we decided to try the parrilladas for 4. I was pleasantly surprised that there was more than enough food for all of us. More importantly everything was exquisitely cooked - the shrimp grilled to perfection and the steak just as we ordered it. Along with the ceviche tasting and the table side guacamole service, the presentation was beautiful. Our server was very pleasant, attentive and accommodating and helped to make my daughter’s bday lunch that much more special. I look forward to going back soon.

    I waited too much for the waiter every time I needed something ordered guacamole they put too much salt on it and on the ceviche it was too too spice waiter didn’t tell me it was that spicy when I asked him. Also he wasn’t the nicest when it came to ask for advice about the menu. Don’t think we are going back.

    Had a variety of things at our table. All flavors were very good. Sauce on the fish taco was very spicy, so would recommend getting it on the side or only for those who like lots of heat. Mexcalrita was very good and enjoyed our desserts as well. Service was very good too. Good option for Mexican in the area and would go back.

    I came on a Sunday afternoon and the place was jammed pack and noisy. Thankfully, I had a reservation and was seated within five minutes of arriving. We were seated near the window but there were dead flies near the window, which was a turn off. I ordered the Salmon Pipian and the pomegranate margarita. They were both delicious which made up for the ambiance and the slow service. Reservations strongly suggested, especially on the weekends.

    Have visited this location in National Harbor while traveling many times. While the food was excellent, we were disappointed. will probably be our last trip when visiting National Harbor. Extremely loud to the point of making it hard to talk to our friends. The servers were working hard but not enough of them. We waited 10 mins to just place drink orders. Yes we know, staffing is hard, but how long does this remain the excuse for everything? Also it seemed extremely expensive compared to the past

    Food was outstanding. The restaurant was very busy and somewhat dirty - mostly the floor but also had stains on menus and napkins contributing to overall impression that things weren’t too clean.
