The food is good but to me it is not authentic. It seems like a fusion type restaurant. If I want real Mexican I go elsewhere if I want something a little different eat here.

The quacamole is to die for. We had 2 portions it was so good. It's not cheap, but a good meal. The margaritas are also made superb. Our waiter Julio went out of his way to provide us with excellent service

Rosa Mexicano has a number of original dishes on the menu and the ownership prides themselves upon sourcing the spices and Mexican ingredients from native purveyors. The quacamole is made tableside and never disappoints. Drink prices are high and they have few beer selections

My family and I had a nice dinner at the Rosa Mexicano restaurant which is located at the Riverside Square Mall in Hackensack, NJ. The service and food was very good. I had grilled jumbo shrimp with garlic.

Nothing about my experience here matched the prices. The service was okay but somewhat awkward - taking food away before we were done, asking us to hand things to her while we were eating, etc. We felt rushed even though the restaurant wasn't busy. The...More

Looked like a good place to stop for dinner. Sat at a high top table in the bar. Ordered beer and fresh made guacamole molcajete. It was delicious! Then had the Tres Enchiladas. Very good as well (one beef, and two chicken with different sauces)....More

Description
Our first Rosa Mexicano to open in New Jersey is located at The Shops at Riverside in Bergen County. The 160-seat restaurant features a spacious bar and lounge area, as well as outdoor and private dining options. Under the creative direction of architect and designer Timothy Higgins, the decor features vibrant colors such as vivid pink, deep maroon, rich butterscotch and warm yellow. Traditional craftwork and adornments include Oaxacan wood carvings of mythical animals, custom wax-dipped artwork, Mayan Indian textiles, and folk art masks. Tortillas are fresh-made on-site at a station featuring colorful tiles and a hammered copper hood. Through the unique designs and cuisine, all will encounter an authentic Mexican experience at Rosa Mexicano.
