Rosa Mexicano by Lincoln Center
Gone are the days of great food, margaritas and general ambiance at this place
Went back for Independence Day Sep16 lured by the Chile en nogada which was terrible it tasted like it was prepared days before and the meat inside was gross looking
Margaritas are the worse - watery n topped with more ice
For take home leftovers we were given a plastic bag (grocery store like) only when asked they gave us a logo printed paper bag - we had to ask for convenience because he had a long way home in retrospect felt uncomfortable advertising we had eaten there - a shame it was our place to go for fine Mexican food - no more!!!
The quality of the food has declined significantly. The service was okay and they insisted on sitting us downstairs even though half the tables were empty upstairs. Would not go back.
Rosa Mexicano is always great! The food is amazing and our server was wonderful!
Great food! Service was OK noticed everyone but me and my husband were taking care of first. I fear it is because we are younger or worst because of visible tattoos. Cannot stress how good the food and drinks were!
The table prepared guac was so delicious, and appreciated kitchen ability to provide fresh crudite in addition to chips. Staff was helpful to us, as we had guest with walker and needed access to elevator. Not quite the scenic route but accomplished the purpose.
You're known for your guacamole that is made tableside. It was not made tableside, but was brought to us. It was tasteless along with everything else that we ordered. So disappointed. I will not be back. The margaritas was great.
Decent food. Not that special but good. The service was great
Service was poor, inattentive and indifferent; food was mediocre to poor, at best...place has become a tourist trap. Disappointing. Won’t come back.
Known for the guacamole Rosa Mexicano is still good. However main course is quite mediocre.
Great location if you’re going to Lincoln Center.Still gets mobs of people for some unknown reason. Maybe it’s the margaritas?
What a disappointment. Food was so so but service was terrible. 35+ mins to get a drink is unacceptable. I’d never go back.
Bar service is extremely slow and irritating.
Second disappointing dinner in a row. First one had Enchilada Suizas with a very spicy sauce. Not typical. Not enjoyable. We were comp'd the entree. Nice gesture.
The second had very poor guacamole, their signature dish. Very rushed. Avocado was smashed..more like cooked eggplant. Dish was not well mixed. One bite very hot, the rest tasteless. Had to be mixed with salsa for taste. My shrimp, while well cooked, had not been spiced. My partner's chile relleno was not warm enough.
I have been coming here for years. Disappointed. Must have a new, poor, chef.
Early lunch outside in terrace seating was lovely. Although the seared tuna was very mild in favor, the sauce and pickled ginger in the tacos punched it up.
Really good meal. The guacamole was outstanding..all of us enjoyed our main dishes although mine was a shrimp quesadilla and it was more than enough.
Super courteous staff, excellent food, with fresh taste and look. The by-the-table prepared guacamole was chunky and delicious. Tres leches dessert was huge enough to share yet I finished it anaided, it was not heavy at all. We'll be back!
Elegant setting, wonderful service, good margaritas. Love the tableside guacamole.
Amazing bar and hostess service. Horrible, horrible, horrible table service. Extremely unpleasant server. Never smiled once. Great food as always.
Excellent service-always! Food is delicious! Great selection of drinks!
Quick dinner grabs before the movies.
We always love the guac! Everything we have eaten here is very flavorful and delicious. The churros are an excellent end to the meal!
Great food and drinks! You must make reservations to be guaranteed a seat upon arrival.
Rosa Mexicano is the best Mexican restaurant. The drinks, the guacamole and every entree are delicious. Service is excellent. This restaurant never disappoints and we highly recommend it.
I love this restaurant for its homemade guacamole made table side and their frozen margaritas. Never had a bad meal there. My only reason for 4 stars is their guacamole portion seems to be getting a lot smaller than it was.
Had a great time!very accommodating to our large party and everyone finished their plates because the food was so good! Recommend the flautas de pollo, the ceviche, and the suizas enchiladas! And the guacamole is a must try!
Fantastic!! And server Dani was Amazing!!
I do not normally write reviews but I wanted to express how disappointed I was on Saturday night. We had booked Rosa Mexicano for my daughter’s birthday as we had had previously excellent experiences there. This was not the case this time.
First of all, we were given a table that was right by the service area and also very close to an incredibly loud family. It was almost impossible to hear. The food was average, the drinks average, and I thought overpriced. My daughter’s drink was brought well after everyone else’s drinks which was not acceptable.
Before the main course was served, the lights were dimmed to the point where no one could see their plates. Despite requesting them to be turned up a little, nothing happened.
Very disappointing and we will not be back which is a pity.
awesome reliable, good/great food. our go to Mexican dinner spot.
Lugar agradable, grande y amplio, el mejor mex. comida muy buena.
Great food and service
The noise level was fairly quiet because we sat outside. Inside it was, as usual, very, very loud. Is there
any way to quell the noise-level inside where we shall be forced to eat as the weather chills. It is impossible to hold a conversation otherwise.
Have been her many times and always good. Keep coming back. Definitely would recommend to friends
Don’t sit outside in the evening - we saw four cockroaches running beneath our table during our dinner
Great food excellent service. I requested a table adjacent to the beautiful blue tile wall with the cliff divers, and cascading waterfall through OpenTable. This request was accommodated by Rosa Mexicano. The fish tacos, skirt steak, plantains, rice, and beans all delicious. The sangria was fantastic, add a little extra liquor, and your night is on. Great spot if your going to a Broadway show afterwards.
My first entree was rather bland but the waiter was very understanding and brought me my 2nd choice with a very short wait, and it was delicious.
I had a coupon from Instagram and it was very unsettling that the server felt it was appropriate to take my phone into the back out of sight for several minutes to process it. I followed her to keep an eye on it and was given off stares. They need a better system. Very unprofessional.
We were a party of 6 co workers eating a celebratory lunch. We let them know we were on a time crunch and they were very accommodating. We all had delicious food and got back to our desks on time.
It was a special Dinner, very good food. Try Guacamole and Guacamole sudae.
I had been to Rosa Mexicano in National Harbor and loved it! This location did not disappoint. One of my favorite places!
