There’s no reason why changing from 1st Ave to 2nd should have so many problems. First NO LIQUOR LICENSE. Right off the bat a consumer is disappointed. The guac recipe was off. Tasted no spice, lime or salt. Steak & chicken tasted ok in the quesadillas and beans but rice again, no flavor.
I moved from NY 2.5 years ago and was excited for the pomegranate margarita & experience. Next time I’ll treck over to Lincoln Square.
The food is excellent, the service is personal and thorough and the ambiance is great. I strongly recommend Rosa Mexicano to all of my friends.
The new restaurant needs some management .
Managers and host just standing at door.
No staff that has training
The food is not as we have had at Rosa's for over 30 years.
No alcohol served yet and not listed on open table as none.
Big let down!!!
Nee east side Rosa is just a poor step sister to the original.
The ok’d one was serene and more refined
Had to ask five different people over a 20 minute period for a waiter.
Staff has not yet been trained in this nee space.
Guacamole not worth it. They are missing ingredients and just nothing special. Tortilla soup was good.
Ordered fajita style dish and both arrived on the iron skillet but was completely cold. Not accompanied by rice or beans as is typical.
They must get their act together but I will not go back. Will find another Mexican restaurant in the area and am sure to have a better experience.
No alcohol, guac was not good at all. Service was ok
Disorganized and not quite ready.
After waiting 25-minutes for someone to bring us menus, the front print were available cocktails. An additional 15-minutes went by to have the waiter tell us the restaurant does not have a liquor license. It is my opinion that this should have been disclosed by the hostess when we were seated. I know this restaurant just opened but this is something that could have easily been explained to us before even sitting down.
I think they just just opened. Staff was super friendly but seemed very busy. Also still waiting on their liquor license.
Very happy to have this new location of Rosa Mexicano in the neighborhood! They are clearly still working out the kinks though - when they called the day of to confirm my reservation, they mentioned they are still waiting for their liquor license to come through, so no drinks or time really to replan other alternatives. My friend ordered a side of cauliflower and received a side of kale. But overall the design is lovely, the food received was good, and can’t go wrong with their fresh guacamole made tableside.
Glad Rosa Mexicano was able to reopen at this new location. Nice to see the new vegetarian menu items. Please bring the Chilli Relleno back to the menu.
Just opened new location it was terrible. The food took hours, it came cold. They did have us the dish for free it was so bad the evening. Eating out on second Avenue was not a nice experience
Food had no taste. I understand it’s new and they are still getting the hang of being open but the food was so bad and the service was very slow. Would not return until they get it together.
Best high end Mexican food in NYC
Service was really bad, the servers didn’t really pay attention to you or get your food in a timely manner.
Everything that ordered unfortunately came wrong. Not sure why. We told them no peppers in the queso, it came with peppers. We asked for mild guac, but they dumped jalapeños in there and my parents were suffering eating it. The nachos were unfortunately bland and didn’t come with much.
Quesadillas didn’t even come with sour cream, guac or salsa on the side. Only other sides on the plate was a huge serving of beans and rice. Would have been nice for the quesadillas to have shredded lettuce or other stuff in it.
My dads tacos he said were ok, not amazing but not horrible.
We barely touched our food.
We then smelled butane gas in the air, which was a little concerning. Told the server and he didn’t seem to care.
I rarely ever post reviews, but it just wasn’t what we expected or hoped for. Hopefully they improve since they just opened. But for now, save your money and time.
Mostly pretty good, would recommend if you live nearby. Service was a bit slow considering it was nearly empty (it was down pouring so understandable). The guac was definitely the low point which was unexpected. It wasn’t awful, just very bland. The other food was pretty good, nothing amazing, but good.
Fish tacos were inedible. Fish was rare and tacos were so spicy I could not eat them. Guacamole had huge pieces of onion in it and hard pieces of avocado. We love Rosa Mexicano…hoping this is just first week jitters. Chips and salsa were delicious.
Service was slow and the food was not great. Hoping to get back tho gi
So glad they re-opened near us. Food is great and service is exceptional.
Everything we ordered was fresh & delicious. The guacamole was perfect.
The service was extremely slow and the food was not up to quality.
Welcome back to the east side.
We missed the great Mexican food served by this old favorite.
Disappointed to not find out about no liquor license before booking
