Rosa Mexicano by Lincoln Center
Located directly across the street from Lincoln Center, Rosa Mexicano is the perfect destination for dinner before a performance, or a cocktail after the show.

Chips & Salsa
Crispy corn tortilla chips with zesty salsa norteña
Restaurant was really under staffed, took 30 minutes to get a waiter for putting in an order and another hour before we got any appetisers. The order came out wrong and by then we didn’t even have the time to put in additional food.
Drinks and food were very good. Service too. Nice setting.
Ambiance was very nice. Excellent job at spacing out tables. Food was good, guacamole was small portion, really servers seemed to be unaffected and in a rush to clean up our table even though there were other tables that were seated before we were. Felt rushed and that was appreciated.
La carne no me gustó y la guarnición menos. Pedí carne a la tampiqueña, no la recomiendo.
El guacamole sin sabor.
Lo único que me encantó delicioso la limonada con agua mineral, pero obvio no voy a regresar solo por la limonada.
Good service and delicious food and drinks. Outdoor seating was perfectly
Rosa Mexicano never disappoints. The ambiance is festive without being intrusive. The menu is extensive and varied. The service is always accommodating. COVID protocols are observed so you feel safe. I'd go back in a New York minute!
Excellent food, ambience and service. Rosa Mexicano gives the vacation feeling. It whisked you away from the city to Mexico for a fleeting moment.
Amazing meeting & food!
Food was meh. Coffee cup and cutlery were dirty. Surprised to see how nice upstairs is compared to downstairs. Would have been nice to sit up there or atleast offered seating considering I had one of the first seatings.
Rosa Mexicano has seen better days. I wanted to love my night out but we were rushed, service was not good and food was subpar. Next time we are going elsewhere for Mexican food. Sorry.
Your place had come recommended, and it did not disappoint. It is convenient to access near Columbus Circle via walking when staying at the Mandarin Oriental. The food, service, and beverages were fantastic. We will definitely visit again.
We have always loved this location by Lincoln Center and while it was quieter visiting during Covid, we really wanted to go out for a birthday celebration. We felt very safe with lots of hand sanitizer, distanced tables, and mask wearing.
Our food was delicious, the staff was friendly, patient and accommodating. Most importantly the food was excellent and the margarita pitcher was perfect!
We had a great meal with a very kind server. Overall will for sure go back.
The margs + guac were exactly what I needed after a long day. I forget what my main course was but it could have been shoe leather (it wasn’t!) and I would’ve been happy.
Underwhelming. Service was slow, portions small and not as good as on prior occasions.
Service here at the Lincoln Center location is absolutely terrible. Front desk is the worst - never friendly, responsive, or helpful in greeting you or getting you to a table in a reasonable amount of time. It’s like they could care less. They’re much more concerned with the phone than with customers who are in the restaurant. Never pleasant and never going out of their way to actually deliver on the tenets of hospitality.
Upstairs the service was just as bad. It took 15 minutes to get the server back to our table to inform them our orders were incorrect.
Overall it’s the failure of management to let things in the hospitality business be run this poorly.
we sat outside across from Lincoln center. well heated and protected with phenomena service!!
The service was great and the food was well worth it. I'm definitely going back .
Perfect family friendly and delicious restaurant. Margarita's and Sangria were perfect! Guacamole soo good. Kids happy and adults happy. We will be back!
Excellent service, food was delicious, great spot for dinner night and reservation was granted as requested
The staff was very nice. The food was delicious as well as our drinks. I highly reccommend Rosa Mexicana! This was definetly worth my trip from Queens!
It took more than an hour to get water and two appetizers, one of which was wrong and we sent back. We usually love this place, but I don't know if it is COVID staffing or we came at exactly the wrong moment (the manager ended up waiting on us) but this was an experience we will write off.
The staff is great, we celebrated a birthday and had 7 guests in total. They went out of there way to make it special.
Food is always so good.
I would say the hostess' up front need to be a little more welcoming but the rest of the staff is just tops!
The food was good, but the service was terrible. Only saw our waiter a couple of times. Our drinks we all empty most of the meal. We got beer and water upon ordering, and got one refill of water when the check came. The water glasses are tiny and there was no opportunity to order another round of drinks.
The food was good though. Will probably give them another chance since they are in our neighborhood, but the experience wasn’t great.
Not the same place it used to be. Saturday night dinner. Understaffed waiters. Took 20 minutes to acknowledge we were seated. Had to continually ask for everything. Food was average. Poor value. Perhaps might improve after COVID.
This is an amazing restaurant. My family and I went for some drinks and appetizers and everything was delicious. I highly suggest the margaritas!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. And this is difficult to say but our dinner was subpar. They changed up the guacamole and now it’s not done table side and it has different ingredients. We did not like it one bit. My wife loved her salmon dish but my steak dish needed a ton of work. They charged me 27 dollars plus tax plus a covid charge and it was nowhere near that. Streak was small and cold when it came to my table and they filled my plate with grilled onions to make the plate look full. Rosa Mexicana will not last if this keeps up.
Great service, nice atmosphere, amazing authentic Mexican food. 10/10 recommend!
Waiter was excellent
The hostess that evening was rude.. She had a attitude keep letting us know oh we close at 9:30 we already knew that
This restaurant has changed a great deal. It appears that there are more people drinking alcohol than eating. The food was good but there were very few waiters. I don’t know if I will ever return.
Great food and service!
The food and service at Rosa Mexicano were spot on. They have maintained their pre-COVID quality.
Perfect evening and wonderful to enjoy an indoor, socially distanced meal.
