    Not much on accessibility. I ambulate with a cane and the bathrooms are upstairs. Quite the hike! I waited for a staffer to show me the elevator which you have to walk outside of the building around the corner to an adjacent building. Food and drinks were good though the guacamole dip was not prepared in front of us and we had to wait for chips. We had Mario as our waiter, nice young man but needs to take charge of the table he serves. In a pinch it's still a good restaurant.

    We have enjoyed our visits to Rosa Mexicano for more than 30 years. This time, we arrived right at the transition from lunch to dinner service, so it was a bit chaotic. There was what felt like a long wait between our delightful guacamole and the main dishes being served. Regrettably, they arrived from the kitchen cold. However, our waiter took care of this immediately, with a gracious attitude, and we enjoyed our dinner. It's a lively atmosphere for sure. I tried the Mexican Coffee for the first time. It was too strong for me, but I did really like the whipped cream on top. All in all, a very happy early dinner time out.

    Mediocre Mexican except for guacamole. Downstairs is not as nice as upstairs. It’s definitely gone downhill. Tacos are boring with poor presentation. Enchiladas for the tasting option are more like appetizer size. Food just seemed ill prepared

    Great food but portions seem to have shrunk. Also the waiter we had was not great. The whole 3x he came by no eye contact no friendliness no smile. Very robotic “what would you like to order” and then right after he just took out menus and walked away very quickly as if he was checking off a task. Not a great experience especially since the host that greeted us our front was super wonderful and friendly.

    While we had a 6:30 pm reservation and all 7 of us were present it took 10 minutes for five in our party to get seated. It another 5-8 minutes of waiting before the manager took me and Mom to the elevator to our table. Then meal was late (7:26 pm) and my first drink didn’t arrive until 7:15 pm and multiple times asking for status. We told them from start we had 8 pm theater tickets.

    Great food, terrible service. We were promptly seated and soon after were able to place our order for Appetizers, Entrees, and Wine. Appetizers were served, Wine had not yet arrived. After our plates were cleared the Hostess advised us that the Wine we ordered was not available, she suggested either of the 2 most expensive White Wines. We ordered a Wine of our choosing which was promptly delivered. After a while our Entrees were presented, mine was what I ordered, my Wife's was something that hadn't been ordered. They apologized and took it back saying the correct Entree would soon be out. 20 to 25 minutes later it arrived. No effort was made to address my Entree sitting by itself on the table, and no one came around to give us a status update. My Wife's was perfection, mine was cold after that long a wait. We were going to the Opera so could not properly jump up and down to show our displeasure, so here it is.

    I ordered a cheeseburger with only cheese and ended up getting literally a slab of grilled cheese on a bun. I sent it back and they brought me an actual burger but with the same giant junk of cheese on top. My burger was overcooked and my friend’s was undercooked - both ordered it medium. And they didn’t give me fresh fries either - they were cold. We also ordered bottomless margaritas but our drinks were frequently empty.

    Very cramped, very busy, impersonal service. I was processed. The guacamole isn’t made at the table - no room- and I asked for medium but seem to have been given mild - so disappointing because I was always a big fan of the original restaurant on the East Side when I lived in NYC.

    I have dined at Rosa Mexicano in the past and absolutely love it. It is my personal restaurant of choice when I frequent performances at Lincoln Center. On Saturday, April 6th, I brought an 80-year-old female guest with me for the first time for an excellent Shen Yun performance. She considers herself to be very critical and she absolutely loved Rosa Mexicano. Our waiter, Alex, was particularly attentive and so patient and understanding that we gave him a very big tip. The ambience is awesome. The food was excellent. It was somewhat crowded so the noise level was a little high but that did not detract whatsoever from a truly outstanding experience. Both my guest and I were very satisfied and I have already highly recommended Rosa Mexicano to our friends.

    Good food. Friendly wait staff. Plenty of variety on the menu. A little pricey but overall I enjoyed it and will come back again.

    The food is rarely very good here anymore, but it’s usually acceptable. Not this night. Even the guacamole was tasteless.

    The guac they make for you at the table is always fantastic. Chicken flautas were quite good, and the birria tacos were great.

    The duck and chicken were a bit dry. Service was good but was quite loud at times. We’ve eaten at Rosa for years but this was our first visit post pandemic. Wasn’t as good as I remembered it being.

    There are a lot of Latin restaurants in NYC. Rosa Mexicano is a great one for way above average Latin food. They’ve thought about the menu and have come up with creative ways to present their unique cuisine. I had the Duck Enchiladas! We also enjoyed the guacamole with pineapple salsa, which was scrumptious! The red sangria made me want to keep them coming! We’ll order the pitcher next time, which is more economical for the price. This is great place for out of town guests that don’t get a lot of Latin food in the cites they’re visiting from!

    Not my favorite location. Everything from food & service similar but not allowed bring options although arrival was within the window & it was extremely loud. We were placed near large parties when it was just us 2. Didn’t like that. Probably wouldn’t go back but Rosa overall is a spot!

    Nice service. The ceviche was chopped into tiny pieces and there was a lot of filler (needed more fish) but it tasted great. The tortilla soup was not good or flavorful. The duck enchiladas were excellent and the complimentary salsa was quite good. Would probably go again.
