 (London)·Dined on October 6, 2017

The menu doesnt match the one on open table so the lobser roll is actually shrimp and instead of 3 tacos you actually get 2. So whilst it is good it was a bit disappointing from that perspective. On the plus, food was good but very expensive, and they have modelo on draught on happy hour which is always good.

I live down the street from this restaurant and really like the decor and atmosphere. The margaritas are reliably good, as is the flan. But I have to say that the food is kinda inconsistent. A few times ago the rice and beans was REALLY dry and inedible, when I politely complained the waiter told me there was nothing he could do and still charged me for it! I ate there a few weeks ago with a friend and the taco's were great. I ate there again last week and the taco's were soggy and awful. I think i'm going to pick another Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood from now on.

My first experience dining at Rosarito last winter was excellent in terms of service and quality of food.However, this past Sunday I went there for lunch, and was very dissapointed that the lunch menu was not available (brunch menu was the only option, but not what I was looking for). Waiter was sloppy in many ways. He forgot to bring my order ( out of five in total) claimed I never gave the order to him, and messed up three of the other four orders (we had no cheese on hamburgers). Never got an apology, on the contrary, I felt as if it was all my fault, which was not tthe case. Left dissapointed, had I known they serve brunch until 4, I would have made the reservation for later.

We were a party of 6 and the restaurant had no problem accommodating us (as we had an early brunch right at opening time). Every one enjoyed their dishes although everyone felt that the portions were just a little small. To be fair to the Shack, none of us left hungry, but we enjoyed our breakfast so much wish their had been more. Perhaps if they had put out bread that might have helped. Also, we would have ordered cerviche but it was not available for the early brunch. Would definitely come back.

Food was great. Service was lacking. We were the first table to sit outside. It wasn't busy. By the time we were ready to leave it was crowded. Wanted to get out of there when we were done eating.. because... we were done. Took 30 minutes to get the check and another 10+ or so to close out. 45 minutes just to leave should never be the case.

We love this place and went for a friends birthday. Food is always good especially the lagostino tacos and margaritas. We sat outside since it was a beautfiul day and our waiter was very attentive and helped set up desert with candles for the celebration.

Our food was fantastic but our service was not! We sat at the table for 20 minutes before anyone arrived to take our drink order or offer us water. We also received someone else's food that sat on our table for five minutes before our waitress transferred it to the correct table.

Food was amazing and fresh. Only issue we had was our waitress forgot one of our sides. Took a long time to bring out. Almost ended up canceling. Then it took forever to charge my credit card. I understand she was busy, but a customer that wants to pay should not wait 10 minutes. Aside from that experience was excellent and I would definitely go back and recommend this place. If you are a tequila lover, check there extensive tequila menu.

We were sat for a reservation and waited 10 minutes before I had to flag the hostess down that we had not been seen by a waiter yet even though we were the only people in the dining area. Then he came over smelling like he had been on break before taking our order. Our margaritas then took an additional 15 minutes to arrive. The waiter was so inattentive and couldn't care less. Usually this place is pretty good.

I had a 10:30pm reservation for me and my girlfriend. We were sited right away, our waitress was polite and attentive. Told us the specials of that day but also told us that the kitchen closes in 20min so we had to hurry but people came in at 11pm and 11:15pm and still were able to get food (not sure what that was about) the meal was good we had fish tacos, chicken quesadilla, and octopus with potatoes all of which were real good. Would I return...yes but earlier in the day when the kitchen is open and ready to service us without the rush

The service at brunch was absolutely abysmal. Did not receive food for over an hour. Would have been tolerable if the wait staff had addressed it and offered apologies but no one did. None of them seemed to be aware of their tables and would wander out with food and several times delivered it to the wrong tables. They charged us full price on our bill as well.

This is one of my favorite places to eat. has been since they opened. I am a big fan of both of their restaurants for quite a long time now. One of the things I LOVE are the margaritas. I ranted and raved about them to my friends on the way there and then when we got there and ordered them they tasted like they were made with the pre made margarita mix they sell at Costcos. Please please please talk to the bartenders about making a proper margarita!! I still love it there but just wanted ya'll to know. PS. The server was also a bit blah (no personality)

Some of the food options were yummy. The chile relleno, happy hour oysters & for dessert the Cuatro Leches cake was amazing!! My fav drink on the menu is the Bolero. Outside seating is awesome here, too bad it's chilly out already we couldn't enjoy it as much. Service could have been much better for the 2nd time we've came here. The bussers are much more helpful & attentive then the waiters.

Had a great meal here with my boyfriend for his birthday. We both have never been before and wanted to try a new seafood restaurant. Everything about our experience was wonderful. I gave service 4 stars instead of 5 because our drinks were sitting at the bar for almost 5 mins ( I could see them) before we were served. This however made no real difference in my overall time. The food was great, waitress was friendly and the hostess accommodated us even though we were running 20 mins later due to traffic . Definitely will be back :)

it took 20 minutes to get our water almost 40 to get a drink and after an hour we just left because our entree wasn't ready and the servers had bad attitudes.

The food is not good enough to deal with service this bad. I used to come here weekly for years now no more. When I spoke with the manager she was rude and dismissive and didn't even apologize. I realize things happen but rude customer service is just not acceptable. I've spent a LOT of money here over the past several years and I will not be coming back.

Tried this place for the first time with a friend for brunch and liked it a lot. Started with calamari that was definitely a step up from the usual. The benedictos Rosarito and huevos rancheros divorciados were also great, with nice bloody marys to accompany. Plus the location is convenient for anyone coming by train.

The service is a joke. Server forgot drinks 3x. Despite two reminders...They finally showed up after the food had arrived. The chips and guacamole are WAY overpriced. Fish tacos weren't bad. I think the people next to us were having srevice issues as well. Idk...go if you wanna get aggravated?

... and I had been warned by a Williamburg resident that Rosarito was not particularly good. Although I did NOT find the portions to be unacceptably small, nor did I find the food prices to be particularly high (the drinks were another story), which were two complaints I had heard beforehand, I was generally disappointed with the quality of the food overall. I had a ceviche and sampled the fish tacos; neither was particularly tasty (the ceviche bordered on the bland), and you can get better versions of both in countless other places in NYC. Our server was kind and attentive, but both the food and the drinks came very slowly. It's a rare thing for me not to ever want to return to a restaurant in NYC, but I won't be back to Rosarito.
