“Great food!”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

Great Mexican food and not the standard combo plate. Specials are great. Carnitas best I've had ever, period.

“Food OK, Service terrible - Taco Rosa Newport Beach”
Reviewed March 5, 2010

We just had a horrible experience in this restaurant. First and last one for us. The bartender had an angry cursing episode at our table and couldn't explain himself. Embarrassed us and other patrons (and even the staff!)
Owner was slow to respond and without any explanation.
As bad as that was, it's easy to just never go back. Lots of other great choices for Mexican in the area - Javier's Sol Cantina and El Ranchito and more.
Reading other review sites, it looks like these guys have a real problem with arrogance.
Pass on Taco Rosa Newport Beach.
