Great service and slaw, otherwise just ok.

The restaurant is huge and very loud when busy--absolutely cannot hear a phone call or voicemail unless you go to the restroom. It is hip, modern, not at all romantic. Perfect for large groups or those wanting a party-type atmosphere. Live music by the bar on Saturday nights, but very little... read more

Secondly,when we got our food our tortillas had a ROACH in it,yes they did take the tortillas back but on the receipt they still charged us, and you would expect them to take it off the receipt ...but they didnt...

We tried out this restaurant because of it's good reviews. There was so much on the menu we wanted to try! The ceviche was excellent. We enjoyed the taco trio and the mole chicken. Their homemade tortillas are also great. For dessert we tried bread pudding and chocolate flan. Both were yummy! Our server was great. The restaurant was busy... More

It was recommended that I eat here from a relative who lived in SA for several years. i was in SA solo on a business trip and thought I would check this place out, not even realizing it was Valentine's Day...not a good Idea. With a projected one hour wait, I decided to go down the street and grab a... More

Although we had just arrived in San Antonio and were looking forward to some good Mexican food, the recommendation my wife and I received to dine at Rosario's was not one I would "recommend" to others. We started off with the house specialty, a margarita. However, the drink had had more ice than liquid. I would most likely stick with... More

This must be where the beautiful people hand out. Besides the great meal and atmosphere there was plenty of window watching in this attractive part of Downtown. Everyone was well dressed and very social. This is not the place for quiet meal as the high ceilings caused loud echoes but my dinner was awesome. Very creative and flavorful menu. I'll... More

Great Mexican spot downtown. Fresh salsa is excellent. Every menu item will not disappoint. Try Lisa's special.

Good food and drinks. A little pricy, great atmosphere. Very busy on Friday and Saturday nights. Must do reservation on weekends. Usually has a band on Saturday night. First Friday of every month has a lots of locals flock to the area of Rosario's.

I stayed in a B&B and this restaurant was nearby so I thought I would check it out. I enjoyed salsa and chips prior to my meal coming. I ordered enchiladas with beans and rice. The tortillas were very fresh. I topped my meal off with a prickly pear margarita. Everything was excellent. I liked my meal so much that... More
