Rosa Mexicano - San Francisco

In 1984, Rosa Mexicano set a new standard for Mexican cuisine when it first opened in 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, prepared 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 our dramatic 15 ft. water wall.

"Spicy guac was not spicy, had to add table salsa to heat it up - other than that, the made per order guac was fresh and good. Dinner went downhill from there. I ordered carnitas which the meat was well done but somewhat bland, the side cooked apples were actually a nice accompaniment but oddly not Mexican in my mind, but that's just me. The real meal killers were the sides of black beans and rice. The beans were total mush, they should have been called refried black beans. The rice was the worse - it was dry and had a chemical taste that was so off-putting, and I LOVE Mexican rice but this was mostly inedible. My date ordered vegetarian dish and left most behind as she did not enjoy her dish either."

"Don't eat here nearly enough! I discovered this restaurant in New York City and was thrilled when they opened one here. I ordered vegetarian sides and the guacamole and my friend had a veggie taco. EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS!"

"Although the food was pretty good (especially the guacamole) the service left a bit to be desired. The guacamole was not made table-side as advertised and it was delivered to the table without chips. I had to ask for chips and wait 3 - 4 minutes for them to come. Pretty pricey overall, but that's SF I guess."

"On a whim, I tried Rosa Mexicano. [I know. It's a chain.] I ordered what I thought were 3 taquitos and what I got were 3 huge (chicken) flautas that bordered on tacos. I was expecting something smaller. Since they were so large, I had one of them. It was a bit bland, on the mealy side; pretty standard fare. As a single dinner, I didn't get the table-side preparation of the guacamole, but the couple at the next table let me taste theirs. It was OK; on the bland side, but then, I'm not a big fan of guacamole. The tortilla chips were really unappetizing. They weren't favorable or crisp; tasted like cardboard. The accompanying sauces (one red and one green) were mild in flavor and the red one didn't have much heat. For the entree, I had the mahi mahi along with the obligatory beans and rice. The fish was slightly overcooked, but the accompanying roasted tomatoes, poblanos, red peppers, etc. helped the dish. I passed on the dessert. Service was great. I can't remember his name, but he did a fine job with follow-up and keeping the ice tea glass filled. So, it was a lot of food for one person. It's probably better if you go with a few people and try different things because I thought I had a lot of food (and I ordered only 2 items). Add in the guacamole and the tortilla chips and you have a lot of food."
