We were unlucky since our server was either overwhelmed with too many tables or for some other reason did not give us much attention. It felt like the waiter was avoiding us and waited far too long for our dessert.

the margaritas are fantastic, everything good but the kale salad, too sharp and very boring. i noticed half a serving left at another table too. my friend enjoyed tofu bowl and burgers were good. lovely place. drinks terrific price. thanks

My boyfriend and I were celebrating our second year anniversary. It was our first time at this restaurant. The ambient music with low lighting was very romantic. When we arrived, our table had a happy anniversary note on the table. Our waiter Greg was delightful! Greg accommodated our needs and gave us the best advice on what to order. Greg was lovely and made our anniversary very special and didn't rush our dinner ( aka we are what the restaurant lingo would call as "campers"). I feel Greg should be managing the restaurant due to the impressive hospitality skills. The food is absolutely amazing, even my partner, who is a meat-eater, loved everything. Everything on the menu is well thought-out and flavourful. All the dishes include purees and or sauces that are freshly made and designed for each plate. The drinks are exquisite, and I feel that this menu fulfills the Mexican essence.

The restaurant has little corks that make it even more enjoyable. The causal shouting of the head chef yelling the orders was hilarious and reminded me of Gordon Ramsey in Hell's Kitchen. They did explain that they are looking to find a glass wall to block out the sound that comes in and out of the kitchen, but I disagreed because I believe it brings to character the restaurant.

Overall I would recommend this place to anyone open-minded to try plant-based food and looking for a new vibrant experience. <3

Food was great - I wish we had been informed that it would all come out at once though. Much of what we ordered got cold before we could try it. The service was incredible - fast and attentive. We went to celebrate a birthday, and noted it in our reservation. Few places do something special for said occasion these days, so we were delighted when we were given complimentary champagne and a birthday candle on a dessert. Highly recommend this restaurant!

The food is excellent, the service outstanding. The only item we didn’t find quite up to par were the churros. They were tasty but really doughy and heavy.
They don’t serve decaf coffee....

When the restaurant was busy we found it noisy. It was better as the room emptied.

Very amateur level vegan food. More creativity needed. Our server was nice although missed many opportunities to sell us on more things. It was clear this server was brand new or training. Maybe don’t have servers training on a Saturday night. We purchased 3 food items and 2 drinks each and each was a miss (aside from the drinks). Server could have sold us on more or more drinks. Will likely not return due to lack of flavour and lack of service.

Delicious vegan interpretation of Mexican food. I went with my friend who is Mexican and he validated how good it was

My wife and I went for dinner. Staff are courteous and ambiance is excellent. Margarita was perfect, food was OK . Broccoli was too much burnt to my taste, Tofu rice bowl was perfect. Overall we had good time , but i expected food to be much better.

I love this restaurant and was happy to try the very reasonably priced 3 course lunch special for $23, but I should have just gone with the guac and chips for an appetizer instead of the kale salad which was pretty lackluster!

Excellent vegan food with a focus on health as well as taste. I brought a group of non-vegans who didn't miss the meat at all.

Amazing food! Server was honestly odd and forgetful but we are a good spirited group and did not let it bother us. Must try the churros!

Rosalinda was an okay dining experience. Interior is gorgeous. The margarita pitcher is $85 and basically comes in a big jar of solid ice, and my party of 3 had less than 2 glasses each. The appetizers are decent. Service was pretty quick and server was nice but made a weird comment about tipping when we tipped 20%, so not sure what to think about that. Probably will not return.

The server brought out our meals and one was not what we ordered which caused a delay. Food was good and the restaurant is very nice.

We let our server choose a selection of wine and memufor us, including the burger. Unbelievable how flavourful all of the food was. The staff was wonderfully attentive. Made our visit one to remember. Thank you.

Was made to feel uncomfortable by the server out entire meal. Felt uneasy and unwelcome- no recommendations based on my allergies instead a comment that “wow, that’s the whole menu”. I work as a server as well and have quite a high tolerance for mistakes and mishaps- but I was wholeheartedly disappointed by the experience. The food was excellent but the service terrible.

Rosalinda is an amazing vegan Mexican restaurant with delicious entree and appetizer options. The dessert menu was also incredible. Try the sweet potato cake with cherry, pistachio, coconut and avocado.

We had booked at 6.15 so that we might eat before attending the ballet. We arrived on time. We were seated on time. The service was good - both timing and attitude. Good food: interesting; sensible portions. We'll go back. Next time we'll book for 6pm rather than 6.15. (The ballet starts at 7.30pm.) Go! You'll like it.

Not being a Vegan but having eaten here before on business, I decided to bring my wife, who loves this style of food and she was very impressed with not only the food but the quick service and the interior design. a great night but for the local event parking fees in force for the Hockey!

Was an interesting take on mexican/south american food with the vegan twist. The ceviche was particularly wonderful. They were also able to accommodate my rather difficult black pepper allergy. The food was surprisingly spicy, but tasty, so perhaps not for everyone.
