As per New York City’s mandate, Rosa Mexicano will require proof of vaccination to dine in our Union Square and Lincoln Center.

We are accepting requests for patio seating. Please know that our patio is limited and the request is not a guarantee. We will do our best to accommodate but the requests are in high demand and we will not be able to accommodate everyone. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you soon.

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. This impressive space features our first, award-winning, 30-foot iridescent blue tile water wall inspired by the cliff divers of Acapulco, designed by architect David Rockwell.

I wasted 1/2 my meal. Please provide 1/2 portions for the popular dishes. Service was slow, maybe not enough servers. Lovely day, sat outside and enjoyed ourselves.

Service is good but drinks and food was very poor quality. We order two Sangrias for drinks that hardly had any wine. It just had some pink licour in it and no fruits. The food portion is very small. I order the beef tacos and my husband order the brisket enchiladas that hardly had any meet on it. The Tres leches desert was delicious. We won't be coming back.

The food is ordinary at best (with the exception of the guacamole, which is wonderful), the service was lackluster at best (the front desk) and downright rude and surly at worst (our waiter). We had tried this restaurant once before and swore never to return. The management agreed that our treatment was disgusting and asked us back as their guest. This was a generous and appropriate response and so we returned with the manager as our waiter. We had a lovely experience and so booked this dinner, a celebration for my aunt on feeling well enough to go out again. As I said, never again. Our first experience was, it seems the usual experience. This is New York City. There are many fine restaurants. I don't need to spend my money at this one

The guacamole is fresh and delicious, the chips fresh, the empanadas appetizer great, the shrimp tacos were good. (Ask for no tartar sauce or ask for it on the side, it was ALOT) the margaritas go down east. The service was good. The weirdest part is the room the put us in felt like a bad banquet hall in the suburbs in the 80s. that they are under construction is fine, to walk through the service hallway and then into that room was a huge miss. They had tables open outside that they should have offered up instead. I’d suggest waiting to go until construction is over, and don’t accept a table in the back room.

The food is still very well prepared. BUT the menu has shrunk quite a bit, eliminating our two favorite dishes: camarones alhambra and a chicken dish with a white cream sauce. Also, the prices have increased significantly and the complimentary chips and salsa have disappeared. Again, what they serve is very enjoyable but choices are limited.

We were seated and ordered on a timely manner. We ordered tortilla soup, table side guacamole, and ceviche. None of our food did not arrive until 7:30, and that was only because we had to find someone and inquire about it. The soup arrived cold. The guacamole prep stand arrived after the soup. The guacamole was adequate. @7:41, the ceviche still had not arrived. We had an 8 o’clock show at Lincoln Center, so we canceled the ceviche order and asked for the check. Our wait staff was very sweet and apologetic, but the overall experience left much to be desired.

The table side guacamole arrived at the same time as the entree instead of before. Otherwise the food was outstanding and the service good.

Delicious. Made at tableside. Then pork carnitas. Delicious and a huge portion. Wine with dinner and coffee after. It was a very good meal. Will be going back soon.

I don't mind changes but some of my favs are gone and my mainstays are completely different such as shrimp ceviche and tortilla soup.
