Entire wait staff was super friendly! Tableside guacamole delicious, margaritas marvelous and all of our entrees were really tasty! Great choice for lunch or dinner - would return (almost did eat there 2 days in a row, but wanted to try another option)

Had a great time and ate outside. Food was very special and good. Ask the server for recommendations. The bar was large also and people can eat at the bar. Plenty of indoor seating as well.

Stopped here for lunch and a drink while in the area. The food was fantastic and the margarita was delicious! Definitely recommend their specialty drink - a frozen pomegranate margarita! You can’t beat the view either

Some of the best Mexican fare I’ve ever had. The homemade guacamole was fun to watch being made and had great flavor. Got right in without reservations (weeknight).

I've eaten at Rosa Mexicano numerous times now, but think this latest outing will be my last. It is truly overpriced, but what really turned me off was the poor service. I was eating with my two young children who were getting restless after waiting...More

Awesome guacamole dip made to order, excellent family night out. Be sure to ask for table with view of the river to see the Wheel at night! Very colorful. Some food is spicy but great if that's your thing. Dishes can be adjusted to order...More

The dip made the meal. Food was amazing but we asked the server to make the dip the way we wanted and he made it great. Dishes are unique unlike regular Mexican joints.

In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened on the upper east side of New York City. Playing a leading role in defining what was then a "new" cuisine to American diners, Rosa Mexicano delivers authentic Mexican cooking in an accessible, stylishly festive atmosphere. Rosa Mexicano's menu features a range of award-winning signature dishes, including our Guacamole en Molcajete, in a traditional lava rock mortar. Described by Time Out New York as "green ecstasy in a stone bowl," it is prepared table side and served with house made chips, warm corn tortillas and condiment salsas. Rosa Mexicano is also known for the Frozen Pomegranate Margarita, as well as the stylish and festive ambiance that includes an illuminated water wall.
