It took them about an hour to bring out tacos and a burger. What’s worse is seeing other people who were seated 30 min later than you get their food (the same dishes) first.

Great local dining spot in Brooklyn. Our server was great but the greeting experience was weird - had to find someone twice and the bartender didn't much care we looked lost. The server and all table side experience saved it and the food was delicious.

My husband and I came to RFS for dinner. We each had the bolero to drink, which was great. I enjoyed everything we had to eat- cod croquettes, ceviche, and fish tacos. I also loved the dessert- tres leches. Would definitely come back.

We went for my brother's birthday; six of us were accommodated easily. There was something on the menu for even our youngest, pickiest eaters. It has a lovely outdoors vibe. All around good time.

Started with the ceviche. It was drenched in a sweet sauce. Felt like it was like the seafood salad at a nyc buffet covered in bad sauce. Then we get two glasses of wine. The pour of wine was so little you couldn’t help but notice their strategy was to get you to buy another glass. Now for the main course. Paella!!!! They ran out of shrimp, so we had frozen shrimp already peeled in the Uncle Ben’s spicy rice, with several thawed mussels that were heated up. Honestly, I wonder how this place survives with the type of food they serve.

#1 The menu does not match what is on Open Table. Its completely different at the restaurant.

#2 Waitress asked for our drink order. We ordered Peronis - waitress said no Peroni available. So we ordered Montauk Ales. Not available..... asked her what she had available. She said everything but Montauk. So we said is Peroni available? She said Yes......

#3 They came to take our dinner order - ordered Shrimp Tacos... not AVAILABLE!!!!!!

That’s when we left.
At this point we paid for our beers and left!!

Terrible experience!!!

Really loved the ambience here. Dim lighting with a lot of energy on a Saturday night. Downside was the food and service. Tacos were excellent but it took 15 minutes for a waitress to come attend to us, and about 40 minutes after the appetizers were out for the main courses to come. The food was way over salted. They salted the fish and kale AFTER it was already cooked. It was so salty that my lips were burning. I made the waitress aware after I paid for the bill so hopefully they’ll take note in the kitchen.

Oh and btw: they didn’t have the two beers on the list I ordered and they were out of chicken tacos!!

We had been to Rosarita's 2-3 times before and had always enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. Alas, this time was a real disappointment. The Ceviche was a bit smelly and left the impression that the fish was not necessarily fresh. The Tacos were ok, but nothing to write home about. The steak was ordered medium-rare and was over-cooked. Our waitress, after having served the main course, was nowhere to be seen again. We had to eventually forget about dessert find somebody at the bar to pay. Hopefully just a bad day at Rosarita's.

Unassuming exterior leads into a quaint and smart dining space. While everything ordered was delectable The octopus hotdog had to be the most delicious item we tried on the menu. The bloody Mary’s are a must.

Good is not on theme with a ‘fish shack’ hardly any fish options. Cocktails tasted like pre made mix. Service was slow, inattentive and the servers looked pretty unhappy.
Meal was also expensive for 3 cocktail and 3 mains.
Would not return

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.

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.
