Rosa Mexicano - Puerto Rico Ratings and Reviews

We went to enjoy a Gustazo and have dinner. The Zmargaritas were good and the guacamole . The two kinds of tacos we ordered were not that good. We got a stamp on our ticket parking but they did not explain were to go to have the ticket validated for the free parking. We could not find it.
The best thing about the restaurant is where it is located( paseo caribe).
The occasion was New Years Eve. The food ...
The occasion was New Years Eve. The food and drinks were terrible. We returned the food twice and the drinks once. The waitress said that due to the occasion (high volume of clients) some bartenders and cookers were hired just for the day. They also posted in Facebook that mariachis will be delighting the evening and they were not. I will not recommend this place.

We used a coupon for 4 margaritas, guac, and refried beans for $19. A great deal as the drinks are $10-12 each. We also ordered 2 entrees, the Churrasco and the short ribs. Place was about 90% full at 8pm on a Friday night. Service was fine but slow. The guacamole was not made table side, as was advertised, but it was delicious. The margaritas were delicious. We waited about 45 minutes after ordering for our entrees to be delivered. The food was completely unremarkable. The short ribs were flavorless. The Churrasco was fine, but the rice it was served with had way too much salt and was inedible. Total for just the 2 entrees, with tax, was over $64. Totally not worth the high price.

Horrible service. My daughter got her meal 25 minutes after we got ours because they made a mistake (and she ordered a salad!). It took 15 minutes for my drink to arrive. The food was mediocre. I have plenty of restaurants competing for my business. I guess I now have one less to consider.

I visited over Christmas week in 2015 and had a poor service experience but decided to return in December, 2016 with my family to try once again. I am very familiar with the NYC Rosa and know it is a well-run. Unfortunately, once again the servers here screwed up the order and were surly and disinterested after the errors were pointed out. The problem appears to be that table service is split between two waiters and their communication is poor resulting in mistakes that ruin the meal. I won't make return.

Service was too slow.
Size of guacamole appetizer was inadequate for 3 people and did not have enough avocado.
Price was too expensive. We had visit Rosa Mexicano at other locations and ordered yhe same food for less money (about $30 or $20 less).

Great apps but the fish tacos were so salty I couldn't eat them. The waiter nicely took them back and the new set were as salty and I still had to pay for them - he claimed I didn't like the rub - right, I didn't, it was TOO salty (and I like salty food).
Our first night in San Juan, we decided ...
Our first night in San Juan, we decided to try this restaurant since we have one back home in the DC area. As always, the guacamole made table side is delish. Our daughter had steak tacos, she said they Were good. My husband had slow braised beef, it was good but small portion. A little well done on the outside but once you hit the center... wow.
I had pork enchiladas... very good.
It wasn't super crowded but they st us next to a table of a large party with a few kids. They were there for a birthday party. May have been employees because it seemed everyone who worked there were at their table.
Service for a slower sat night was average.
The guacamole was good, but they forgot ...
The guacamole was good, but they forgot to put like in it. I ordered a chicken burrito and split it with a friend. Unfortunately, all the chicken Tinga was placed in only one end of the burrito and the rice on the other. So, not wrapped very well. But, it was tasty. Also, my friend ordered the pork belly tacos, but the restaurant ran out of pork belly. They substituted it for regular bacon, which was severely under-cooked and hard. The restaurant offered him no discount and only a cursory apology. If you have dined at a Rosa Mexicano on the mainland you will likely be disappointed with the quality of the food and attention to detail of the one in San Juan. I hope they train their kitchen staff and management properly and teach them that cutting corners is not acceptable.

Very romantic view & setting. Food was delicious. Guacamole is the best. Drinks were divine. Service was superb. We had a very special time. I went with a group of 6 to celebrate my daughter's new goal in having completed law school & having taken the Bar. Thank you for making it unforgettable!
Good food but no client service at all.
Service was really bad from the beginning. We made reservations but still waited1/2 hr. For the table even though some tables were empty. Attention was deficient. Seems like no training at all with respect to client service. Have to ask for spice sauce and lemons 3 times and didn't get it. A Margarita came like 20 mins
After and the apetizer never came.Food was really good but considering many other good choices and that there was no value added at all we do not recomend it. Other places sells an experience rather than just good food. We didn't get it. Hope it improve.
What a let down : (
The write ups on this place were great, but we totally disagree after having dinner there. we we're excited for the table side guacamole but they make it way too salty. The main dishes were just ok. Nothing to boast about. The wait staff grunted at us frequently. The hostess was busy talking to a friend when we arrived. The divers on the wall were cool. But hardly reason to visit this place.
Great place. Not so great food
The recommendations from the servers was no-Mexican dishes. Guacamole is awesome. Burritos pretty good. Arroz Caldoso good but pricey. Tacos, ughhh. Do not try it. The place is beautiful. But you must be very selective with the dishes.
average food at best & expensive. disappointed.
i was somewhat excited to find a rosa mexicana while visiting puerto rico. i have eaten at the one near lincoln center in new york, city & loved it. this one, was disappointing to say the least. though the menu offered a puerto rican food fair, it was not that great & very overpriced. if it weren't for the free marrgherita coupons our resort offered, our bill really would have been high! the service was not great, at one point our waiter laughed at us when my husband said to me - not even addressing him - that he we could sit here all night & enjoy the view. just kind of rude, overpriced food a good view at best. far better places to eat while visiting.
Wait staff blew this festive dinner
Rosa Mexicano is bright, loud and on New Year's had a mariachi band. We were seated just inside the restaurant which was distracting because of people lined up for reservations right next to us and the people coming out of the kitchen who had to struggle through there. The food was great but somewhere along the line our waiter disappeared. He missed part of my order and it took a while to get him back and by then my food was getting cold. By the time dessert rolled around I placed my order and he was gone without checking to see if anyone wanted anything else which they did. Our table was cleared and we sat there for quite a while waiting to get the check. I'm a 20% tipper almost always but that night I couldn't reward his service. Not fair to the others who get it right or try really hard.
Rosa Mexicana San Juan
This RM is similar to all the others. Dependably good food, though not a whole lot for non meat eaters. Servers were pleasant but service was S L O W. Although I have come to expect slow service in the Caribbean moreso than in the US, this seemed especially pokey. Nice atmosphere and a view of the water.
Pretty setting on Condado Lagoon
Rosa Mexicana looks out on the Condado Lagoon - a pretty setting at night with the restaurant lights reflected in the water. Our dinner started with the table-side preparation of fresh guacamole, served with crisp corn chips. Delicious! We tried the cucumber mojito, a very refreshing drink. Our entrees, the farmers market vegetable fajita and farmers market vegetable burrito, were artistically plated and very flavorful as well. Our waiter was very friendly, offered good suggestions about the dinner menu and served our meal quickly.
tasteless food bad drinks
