Short on elegance, narrow on quality, too high in price!

Rosa Mexicano is one of those places to dine that is difficult to categorize! One can criticize it’s noisy environment and one’s inability to hold a normal conversation while dining with friends or business associates. It is also possible to not really enjoy their so not typical style and design, showing little resemblance to anything Mexican. And, you may even say it is very much like a monotonous restaurant chain. I cannot categorize this restaurant, because for me, it does not fill any niche in particular. Although the food preparation is good, many offerings are unique and nouveau Mexican, attention is adequate, comfort is average… I somehow do not get over the fact that the prices do not come close to the level of service, value, ambience, taste and quality one would expect for the money paid! Rosa is good, but it is most definitely over priced and over hyped! Maybe if it comes down to earth, and exudes more reality dining, it would be an excellent experience. Meanwhile, I’ll wait til it does!

Very expensive, very crowded, very trendy

The food here is good. Not the world's best, but better than Chi-Chis, Don Pablos, and maybe even Rio Grande. Certainly the dishes are fancier versions of Mexican dishes (they tend more towards real Mexican dishes than the Tex-Mex stuff…

Not really authentic mexican, but interesting dip

I think the biggest thing this place has going for it is the table-prepared guacamole dip. Your server will prepare guacamole fresh from avacados at your table while you watch. That said, I'm not sure there's much else about this…

Tips
  • Because the recipes come straight from Mexico, with a stopover in Rosa’s NYC origins, they haven’t toned down the spice for the casual diner. Many menu offerings are accompanied by beautiful green or yellow “lantern chiles” which add a nice touch of color, but know that those crisp little garnishes are habaneros--Mexico’s hottest chilies.
  • Check out the Flavors of Mexico series, which includes tasting menus, cooking classes and a chance to savor the particular offerings of the featured region. Buen provecho!
  • The signature pomegranate margarita offers a splash of the unusual but may be too sweet for the seasoned drinker. The traditional lime standby is exceptional.
