"We enjoyed great service at Taco Rosa, from the separately plated appetizers for each one of us in our group of 10, to putting our shared desserts on individual plates for us. Large portions and excellent food attractively presented. The wait staff never let our water glasses go empty, and they were attentive throughout our lunch. A good place to bring a group of people for lunch - not too loud, great food and excellent service. Prices are moderately expensive, but a good value for what you get."

"Had lunch with friends. From start to finish the service and staff were great. Instead of chips and dip they brought a little "tapas" plate. That was tasty. We did "order" chips and dip too. I had a chili rellano and it was so-so. Looked nice, but little flavor. Everybody at the table had something that had great presentation and the folks who had crab or shrimp in their food said it was great. Maybe that's Rosa's thing and I ordered something that's just on the menu but not a highlight for them. There was a "colorful stack" on the plate that I was hoping would be a "guava-type" salsa but it was just diced vegetables that didn't meet the flavor scale associated with the vibrant colors. If I do go here again, I'll try something "mariscos"."

"We decided to try something different this time. It was not a good decision. The asada torta sandwich was not good at all. The asada was in very tiny tiny chunks that were overdone. The sandwich was overwhelmed with shredded lettuce. It was really not worth $5 let alone $15. I left most of it there. The other dish was Cuato which was also very marginal. The enchalada was very dry, The corn tamale was also dry and cold as well.
So, all in all, not a good day for lunch at Taco Rosa."

"Their web page indicated that they had mariachi on Sundays from 6pm to 9pm but there wasn't one playing. Their food was not good. I get that we went on a busy night but the waiter took a while to get our order, from our drinks to our food. It was not a good experience at all. I'm so disappointed that we made our valentine's dinner reservations at this place"

"I go to Taco Rosa for business lunches about once a month. I think the decor is original, comfortable and elegant. My guests always compliment the food and we are able to have a good conversation during the meal. The staff are very professional, friendly and caring. It is not inexpensive, but I can always count on Taco Rosa for a delicious business meal."

"Had reservations but still had to wait for a table which didn't make sense. Didn't have the requested table, a booth available. They seemed really busy because their one minute was ten or more minutes. Other than that, delicious food and drinks. Not greasy like other Mexican food restaurants. Bad thing is, they close early. Wish they stayed open longer."

"Don't let the name fool you, this is not an 'Every corner taco joint'. Very nice restaurant all the locals know about. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable of the food and menu. I had the Mexican Mule to drink and it is now my favorite mule, made with prime tequila, house made ginger beer, fresh squeezed lime juice and agave juice. Very refreshing! For dinner I chose the civiche Vera cruz. It was listed as a starter but the portion was plenty for dinner. Made with lobster, octopus, shrimp, yellow peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, olivez, cilantro and other goodies, it was the best version of civiche I've had. Fabulous!"

"There were 5 in our party, we had a reservation. They sat us at a table for 4. One side was a booth, so 3 of us had to squeeze in on the one side. The service was terrible. We had to ask multiple times for our drinks to be refilled. My meal came with tortillas which I never received, even though I asked several people for them. The food was good. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone."
