Everything was awesome. Find the food a bit over salted however. Churros are the best!

Food was excellent and service was attentive. I'd definitely want to sit towards the back next time as the front of the restaurant feels cold and cafeteria like. This was our anniversary which I noted when I booked. I'll request a seat at the back if we return.

I’ve been here a few times since they opened and have always been pleased. The food is delicious. They have added a few new items so it’s nice to see the menu stays current. It’s a good place to go for sharing food, as most dishes are meant for sharing. Save room for dessert, the churros are delightful!

I've been to Rosalinda many times. However, this last time I went, the food was not as good as before, and service was definitely not as good as when they first opened. It's a shame they removed certain items from the menu- such as the Toluca tacos, and that they changed certain items (chilaquiles used to be amazing and now the sauce and cheese are poor quality).

Took my friends here for a birthday dinner and it was incredible. The interior design is amazing, great atmosphere. I'm not a vegan or even vegetarian, but I loved every single meal that we ordered. We did have some food allergies at the table and they were very accommodating.

The food was fantastic but the service was sub par. Not once was I asked if I would like my drink refreshed. I was with a friend for her birthday and we were planning to try many different cocktails but the service made us feel like we were an afterthought. I will not go back.

If you are a vegetarian or Vegan and enjoy Mexican inspired flavours, you will LOVE this restaurant!
The food is excellent and delicious. Service was a bit slow as they where very busy, but the waitress apologized for the delay and attentive afterwards. If you like Churros (Mexican donuts) these are one of the best outside of Mexico! Ole

Great vegan Mexican food. The coconut ceviche is a must to try.
The only issue is we were seated and then no one came by to serve us. Three servers kept passing us by but no one approached us. Eventually we asked a server if someone can take our order and then all went well after that.

The caramel cake I had for dessert knocked it out of the park. I wish the food had been a bit spicier for Mexican, but all in all, pretty flavourful. Service was very professional, and courteous. Would return again!

Food was pretty good but one dish we ordered never came, our server was non-existent. The tables are really close together and for a table for 2, the table is really long - the place also gets quite noisy, felt like I was yelling the whole time

This was the best vegan food that I’ve ever had. I recommend getting 2-3 plates per person because the portion sizes for most of the dishes are not enough to fill you up if you only order one. Our server brought out our food in courses which made our experience feel like a vegan tasting menu. Everything was delicious and exceeded our expectations. My boyfriend is not vegan, but he loved the food. We had the potato and mushroom flautas, young coconut cerviche, jackfruit taco, squash barbacoa taco, roasted eggplant, and root vegetables and mole (my favourite). Vegan or not, you need to try Rosalinda

Our food was amazing. We loved every bit of it. Our server was not engaged at all. She looked bored and like she would rather be elsewhere. We called to her several times as she went by us and did not hear us, probably coz she was in a daze of some sort. Other than that, everything else was lovely. Will be back hopefully for brunch.

Extremely spotty and slow service. Bartender forgot to bring my drink while I was sitting right in front of him at the bar, and I had to ask a different gentleman. When we moved to a table for dinner, server took (no joke) around 20 mins to come take our order. Took 20 mins to refill our drinks, even though the bar was 10 steps away. Food is incredibly mediocre but the decor/vibe is nice. May return at some point but not in a hurry.

Waited 40-50 min food on a Thursday night. When my burger finally arrived, there was a hair in the fries. It was replaced but not much was said from the servers. Not bad, but wouldn’t come again.
