The food was great as always. The only downfall were the desserts. We ordered the churro’s and tres leches cake…the churros seemed a little greasy and the cake was very dry. It overall, it was a nice dining experience.

Nothing was majorly dirty, but I just felt that overall the restaurant seemed more used than normal. Our menus were all greasy when handed to us and it started the meal off with a grimy feel having to touch dirty menus and having no place to set the menus other than near our silverware and appetizer plates. We were also seated in a booth with a giant tear in the seat. If the restaurant was packed, I can understand being seated there, but since there were many open tables, it would be in the staffs best interest to not use that booth. Also, my reservation listed that we were celebrating a birthday and the birthday was not acknowledged. We were deceptively upcharged for for rice and beans and corn of which none of us would have ordered if we were not led to believe they came with the meal. Our waitress was nice and our food was delicious, overall it was just not what we were used to from past experiences.

Waiter was cordial and helpful. Drinks tasted great but poor presentation for the price. Ordered Chile Relleno at 5pm and was told not available - kitchen ran out. How is that even possible at such an early time. Tried the enchiladas due to limited vegetarian choices - unfortunately was cooked heavily with cinnamon in the sauce. Plantains were excellent, as were the empanadas. Rice was dry and bland. Would likely not eat here again.

A deliciously fresh queso fundido appetizer with melty Mexican cheeses and poblano peppers in a sizzling skillet has been replaced with “queso” that is just melted processed cheese. The amazing chorizo empanadas have been replaced with bland bean and cheese empanadas, and an inferior dipping sauce to the prior version. The delightful carne asada used to have a tender skirt steak, charred perfection and reliably executed to a beautiful med-rare. The steak is now a cheap, gristly cut of meat that was way over cooked and so tough it was inedible. Our favorite enchiladas are mostly gone - the new version of the beef is bland and inferior to prior, the duck was nothing special, and they have replaced the delectable mestiza sauce with something not nearly as tasty. The chicken enchilada suiza was ok, but not great. Execution was poor: both the rice and beans were undercooked and crunchy, an intolerable dining mistake, and my steak was well done when ordered med-rare. The cocktail prices have been increased, but it’s the same margarita being brought to you, just now with a silly display that involves dry ice that produces smoke. Still a great margarita, but the theatrics don’t add anything and it’s clearly being used to justify a price hike. Rosa Mexicano has been one of our favorite, beloved restaurants for years. We eat here often and spend thousands here every year: Weekends with family, weekday Business lunches, Special occasions… Rosa’s has been a consistent favorite. Today, I sadly sent my steak back and had it taken off the bill because it was offensively bad. We did not enjoy anything we ate today except for the drink and salsa. That’s a poor showing for $130 before tax and tip. Please bring back the old menu and food items! The menu changes are beneath the Rosa Mexicano we know and love. I truly hope Rosa’s will return to their prior menu and reliable cooking. If not, they will have lost us as customers.

Tables and chairs were not clean, and had to ask to be wiped down. Food was lukewarm and underseasoned. Was difficult to order drinks, get water (server forgot several times), and flatware and napkins (also had to ask several times). Have been dining at this Rosa's location for many years, since their original opening at National Harbor, and have experienced a significant overall decline in quality of service and food. Used to be a genuinely enjoyable experience with good service and quality food, to where, now, we feel this was likely our last visit to Rosa's for a very long time.

No problem, but I do take issue with them saying that I can't have sauce on the side. Strange. I spoke with a manager and he did provide me with a taste test of sauces, which I appreciated. The server did not offer that as an option, which is why I asked for a manager. I will probably not patronize the restaurant again.

The restrooms and the hallway leading to them were disgusting and there was a manager standing in front of the hallway the entire time I was at the restaurant - he made no attempt to clean up. The restaurant smelled like a Chuck E. Cheese.

The prices reflected the area. Our service was mediocre, at best. Our drinks were not refilled (or offered), the server did not come back to check to see how our food was. We had to ask for serving utensils when our shared meal came. We ordered a $64 meal for 2, which was full of good meat, but the accompaniments were average. When I asked for a second box (to split the meal we ordered for 2) we were told that was the last box in the restaurant. When I asked someone else for a box, it was brought right away.

The waiter was pretty good. The non alcoholic beer was outstanding. The homemade chips was devine. Everything was great. I wished they had chocolate cake on the menu. Maybe next time, they will have choclate cake. Other than that, I had a amazing experience.
