We came in for lunch. Our service was good the food not so much. It's definitely not worth the price. The margaritas are delicious. Tableside guacamole was a nice touch.

A great collection of Mexican specialties and dishes nor commonly found at Mexican restaurants in the East (& Midwest, where I'm from). Great atmosphere and friendly staff contributed to a nice dinner evening.

I came here twice, they had a number of great dishes, but the steak ones were the best. They were very friendly and the prices were typical for the area.

My husband and I had lunch there today. We weren't overly impressed with the cuisine, it was regular mexican food. Pancho Villa's cuisine, IMHO, tastes just as good. Their waiters need to be taught to "slow down" when serving! A gentleman at the table next...More

Better Mexican food in Alexandria. Head over to a restaurant called El Paso. Also way over priced. They are trying to be like an experimental, but falls flat.

Despite being fairly busy, we were greeted and seated very quickly. Service was excellent, keeping water glasses filled, checking in regularly, explaining the items that they are known for, but never being a nuisance. The food was excellent. Guacamole made at the table, so it...More

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.
