    Rosa Mexicano used to be our favorite Mexican restaurant. However, it went down a lot after the Pandemic. We thought it finally raised up and my husband enjoyed his birthday last year. However, this year wasn’t great. First of all, the hostess greeted us as Happy Father’s Day even though I made the reservation as Birthday occasion. Margaritas were still good but the food wasn’t as good as used to be. Guacamole wasn’t mixed well and we tasted chunk of salt. Tampiquena was too thick and hard (too much tendons). Other dishes were just ok. Even the dessert time, nobody said Happy Birthday to my husband. The didn’t charge us the coffee so I added that on the tip even though I felt the service was very minimal. By 7:30pm, the restaurant was almost empty. Maybe that’s the sign…..

    Lunch service was just ok. We were having a business lunch so no alcohol and everyone was drinking water but getting refills on water was like pulling teeth. At the end, I asked for the check and he said "okay" walked away and forgot, but the check was on his pocket terminal the whole time and when he finally handed me the terminal he pre-selected the 20% tip option. I was going to give him that anyways but pre-selecting is grimey.

    Other than the incredibly rude manager on site who has 0 interpersonal skills, the meal and service was adequate. Frankly, the nicest interaction we had at our business dinner was with the smiling gentleman who ran our food. Promote him to manager. Doubt I will return to either to this location

    It didn’t seem like there were a lot of people in the restaurant yet we got seated in a weird spot like right next to another table and would have preferred to have more space… also just took a long time to get food/service generally
