Mediocre food for above average prices.
Maybe our expectations were too high - but we were really disappointed with the food.
Positives: great service and really cool atmosphere.
We ordered all 3 tacos, the burger and two desserts and the only good thing about our meal was the fries that came with the burger.
Example - churros. Should be quite simple...yet they were dense and chewy.
Tacos - should be awesome right? They all sounded so good we decided to get one of each (two tacos per dish) and they were lacking flavour and textures were all wrong.
Example: chorizo tacos. You’d expect a sausage-like consistency or flavour. What we got was wet crumbled tofu with a hint of a smoky flavour.
As vegans, we were very disappointed. We love bringing couples/guests to try vegan food and experience the flavours - and this is not a place we’d take anyone.
The food was excellent, and good value. The server didn’t seem to like us much, but she was polite and responsive, so all good. We had an amazing dinner anyway. Loved the white margarita, the crispy tofu.
I eat at Rosalinda's 2-3 times a week and never get tired of the awesome flavours and choices.The staff are wonderful and the atmosphere is warm and funky. Thank you Jamie Cook, Libby
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
Amazing service and very unique, delicious food!! There are a lot of options, and they are all vegan!
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!
My partner and I had a lovely anniversary dinner here. The food was amazing and well priced. The server was excellent and catered to our needs despite the busy restaurant. Would definitely come back!
The food was very fresh and tasty! The service was quick and the waiters were very polite. I would definitely go there again.
Also, I found the restaurant ambiance adorable.
Good food and drink.
More casual than expected.
Good mix of people.
Service was amazing from entering the restaurant all the way to leaving, each person that worked there was friendly and hospitable!
Love the chilled lunch vibe. Delicious food and no-one got hurt. Lunch menu very good value. Churros insanely good.
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.
Always a pleasure!
The tacos were too darn spicy! Reduce it one level folks!
Portions were not large, but excellent for sharing.
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.
Cool spot but food isn’t that good and way overpriced.
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.
lunch promo is a great deal! affordable and delish :)
It was my birthday brunch with friends.
The food was great.
Read was looking after our table, and his service was outstanding!
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!
This is our new favorite restaurant if we are eating downtown. Loved it!!!
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.
Great service and absolutely delicious vegan food! I had the TIJUANA-STYLE BROCCOLINI and I loved every bite!
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.
Amazing service, food, drinks, and ambience!
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.
Amazing meal and great service! This place is a must visit in Toronto.
The waitstaff seemed confused regarding the menu. The kitchen was very slow. Very spicy food wasn't labeled as spicy, causing problems.
It was great!
Got the burger and grilled sweet potato. Burger tasted really good and the potato was cooked perfectly and presented neatly.
One of the very best vegan restaurants I've been to! The food was outstanding and our server Read was very knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. He made our night feel very special. We will definitely be back!!
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.
