The ceviche was the delicious, the enchiladas were a bit too much sauce and too little enchiladas. The churros were delicious and the ambiance, service and social distancing were all positive. I plan to return. 😊

Celebrated Valentine's day at Rosa Mexicano. They decorated the restaurant with rose petals. Our table had a rose placed in a cute vase and there was candle light. Every alternate table was empty, they were following COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. Food was delicious, right size portions.

The dinning experience was very nice by the water and authentic Mexican cuisine. We had small blip with the brunch menu and cost but in the manager corrected the issue rapidly and moved us forward. The food was absolutely delicious. The drinks were very well made. Definitely would dine again.

We waited for our check over 15 min. Felt bad that people were waiting for our table. Did not like not being told there are NOT free soda refills. Who doesn’t do free refills. There cups are so small. Then had to wait to get a water refill for forever. Service not that great

Our servers name was Jazmine. She was absolutely amazing! Her energy was everything! She made very thoughtful suggestions and kept checking on us to ensure we were ok. She was such a joy and delight! You all are very lucky to have her! I will request her every time. Also, the food was very delicious. Honestly, I was there the night before. Everything was fresh and very authentic. And the margaritas were to die for!

Not as good as in years past. Went there for lunch on a Wednesday. Not very crowded so seating at a window in bar was not a problem. Food was cooked and presented well but bland and unremarkable in taste.

Food is excellent! Guacamole stands out. Carnitas is sooo good. Churros and the crepe are great dessert. The place is strictly implementing the covid 19 safety requirements for the guests. Customer service is a plus.

Hostess and servers were really nice. However, the server took 3 food and drink orders from tables that were seated after us. Also, took a while to receive our food.

Great customer service! Everything was clean, especially since we expect everything to be sanitized. The food was excellent. The portion size on the plate was perfect! We were not overwhelmed with a huge plate. The ambiance was quiet and we did not find ourselves needing to speak over the music. We definitely want to come back sooner rather than later.

Our waiter was not very attentive. I was a little annoyed with the fact that they made us pay for chips and salsa. As long as I can remember, those were free with the dine in experience.

We had reservations for 8:15 for a bday celebration with friends. When we arrived we were told they were running behind and it may be an extra 15min which we said was fine. We then waited on the side and checked in twice to see how much longer it would be. At 8:45, we approach and say this is too long of a wait and what is going on. They tell us they gave our table away because they called our name twice which no one in my party heard and we were standing right by the checkin area! We finally were seated at 9pm. 45min later!! Thankfully the food and the waiter was good which helped redeem this review.

Everything was excellent. Out server - Honest did an outstanding job. We asked her for several recommendations and she responded with excellent choices which indicated her excellent knowledge of the menu. She checked in with us at the correct level making sure we had everything we needed without overdoing it.

The chips were oily and unappetizing. The tortilla soup was tiny (about the size of a cup of coffee), mediocre, and full of stringy cheese. It's such an easy dish to get right, using a traditional Mexican recipe. The restaurant must be trying too hard to Americanize its dishes (I remember being pleased with the food the last time I was there, but then I ordered something substantial; this time I was with someone who just wanted a snack).

The comfort and ambience of the outdoor seating on a sunny, warm day in October was appealing and the service was excellent (if anything, the waitress came too frequently to ask how we were doing--maybe she was hoping we would order more).

I was disappointed in my main meal. I order the pork shank always when I come there. This time, the menu changed and no longer rice and beans are served with the food. Just the pork shank with pickled onions/cabbage (more like plate decorations). The value is not there anymore. Not sure if I will return.
