Rosa Mexicano - DC
Our wait person, Nancy, was fantastic - attentive, great sense of humor and she went out of her way to prepare a nice presentation plate, with a candle, for some cupcakes we had bought and brought with us to celebrate our daughter's birthday. At our request, they skipped the whole sombrero happy birthday thing, which my daughter really appreciated. :)
Food was fantastic, too and there were mostly non-drinkers at the table, so the mocktail offerings were particularly welcomed by our group.
Can't wait to come back again!
Food and atmosphere was great! Only downside is we had to wait for 20 minutes even though we had a reservation.
the food was not as tasty as I expected. I can cook better than that.
Dinner before Shawn Mendez concert, extremely busy so service was slow and requests forgotten. Food was ok but not memorable.
Gave 4 stars with consideration for the fact staff was overwhelmed by volume of diners.
The service was amazing. We got seated earlier than our reservation time, and our waiter was excellent. We sat outside and it was very nice. However, the food is very pricy for its quality. It is good, but not worth $80 for just two people. I would come again, but I would go for lunch and order different food.
Our server was very attentive and made outstanding recommendations. We will be back!
Good service and menu. Sometimes the reception can be challenging in terms of finding an acceptable or appropriate table.
Waitstaff were not at all knowledgeable about allergens and kitchen is unable to make adaptations for spice allergies. Really, you can’t find a piece of plain chicken in the back?
I never liked guacamole until
I went to Rosa Mexicano! That was about 15 years ago & it’s my go to place in DC for a margarita, chips & guacamole! Their enchiladas Suizas, bean & rice are also favorites. Excellent service too!
Rosa Mexicana is a fun restaurant with great ambiance. Food is ok, not great, but ok.
Great vibe and food. Did lunch one day and was very pleased.
Food was delicious. Service was very friendly but incredibly slow. Waiter apologized profusely. If you like good Mexican, this is worth a trip.
Broad choice of margaritas, but La Tradicional is a great choice. Table side quacamole is very good and willingly adjusted to individual taste. Chicken quesadillas were the only disappointment — chicken tasty, but not enough cheese. Everything else was great.
Very nice experience. Would go again.
Was great for a Sunday brunch! Would recommend thi give it a try soon.
Having been to Rosa Mexicano in NYC and MN many times I was looking forward to an amazing up scale experience.
Upon arriving the hostess was fighting with another customer that they were about to seat.
Upon using the restroom I could smell the bathroom from outside it literally smelled like a cage in the zoo. My associate also experienced two guys mock fighting in the restroom and one of the guys told him that his girl friend left him and he said he was high on coke.
We then ordered mild guacamole before dinner and asked it to be mild it arrived spicy as can be.
Next they had the shades drawn by our window side table and some guys were banging on the window and none of the staff did anything.
Food was rushed and beyond the experience I expected.
The DC location needs serious quality control and cleaning staff.
The food was great. My disappointment was having to repeatedly ask for a second drink. We ordered them and had to remind the servers multiple times we hadn't received them.
Food, location and atmosphere were great, and spoke for themselves, however our server seemed less than happy to be there.
Waiter was horrible, took forever to get his attention. Had better food at Uncle Julio’s...never going to this place again
The tacos and the pomegranate magarita is amazing. This place has the best tres leche
Absolutely excellent service! My server thought my portion looked small and took it upon herself to bring me a new one. I hadn’t even noticed!
Event night at Cap One Arena. Clearly overbooked by a lot.
I do not recommend for show nights. Walk a few blocks away - it’s worth it.
We had a long wait due to a concert that most people were attending. Ended up with 15 minutes to eat, so we couldn't really enjoy our food. The bar actually made a mistake and made 2 sets of drinks for us, but we couldn't enjoy the second one because we had so little time.
We were seated 20 minutes after our reservation time and then got watery queso fundido and lackluster pollo budin. We have been going to Rosa a long time and this time the food was the worst by far.
Great place to eat, Right across the street from the capital one center… So extremely convenient. Can’t get any closer to the metro center.
Fabulous food and atmosphere. It’s our favorite restaurant to go to before a show.
We got there for Happy Hour for an 8PM concert across the street which is very convenient!
All the food and drinks at Happy Hour were very good quality!
Table side Guac was great, back rooms were much quieter than bar area room. Food was great and a lot of variety!
Always a treat! The quality of the authentic food and service is very good.
Thank you for another terrific time Greg and Rosa staff!
Excellent service and great staff!
The food and drinks at this place are the best! Great flavor and value is not bad, considering the area and that this place is a bit fancy! I would totally recommend!
Food was good but expensive. Service was horrible though - my plate was very greasy and as the waitress was clearing the dishes she poured grease all over my shirt and shorts and didn’t even apologize. Stains wouldn’t come out.
No HH at tables? Boo.
Food was amazing as always!
Amazing experience! Took my coworker for s retirement lunch and manager presented us with a surprise bottle of champagne to celebrate!
Great table side guacamole and chips. Please note that if you are over 21 and still have a vertical ID they will NOT accept it.
We ate here before a big concert with a group of 7. It was my daughter’s 21sr birthday and we had a grand time. The drinks were amazing especially pomegranate margaritas and sangria. Food was lovely as well. The staff gave great service even though it was packed. We made it to the concert on time. They even gave her a mini celebration for her birthday which was much appreciated.
Great food - table side guacamole is always a go to!
The food was delicious, abundant, and fresh. We were a party of eight, maybe that's why it took a bit longer to get to the table. But we all ordered different dishes, and all were excellent. Guacamole prepared fresh tableside is a must. Loved the carnitas with seared pineapple, and the side of plantains!
Very good food. However service was terrible - we were ignored all night. Waitress came by and gave water, but then didn't come back and take order for 15 minuites. We flagged her down and she took drink/food order. We asked her for extra jalapeno on the side with guac, she said yes and then didn't get any. Asked guac guy for some, he said yes, then didn't give any. Asked a busboy. Said yes, didn't give any. Had to flag down a different waiter to get more water. Had to flag down a different waiter for the check.
