The most interesting reviews

Excellent food, atmosphere, and service!

Feels like a dining hall vibe - table was rocky, carpet on the floor in back room. Margarita was too sugary. We only had one drink and left.

Great spot for big group dinners! Food and drinks were solid, loved the mushroom tacos

Was here for a company dinner and the tacos were delicious!!

The chicken tortilla soup was NOT it! It was essentially a grease broth with badly cooked chicken.

That being said the service was friendly, ambience was great, and the carnitas verde Torta was delicious!

Excellent service and great food. A place to go back and recommend.

Went for a business dinner and was not disappointed. Lovely food and service.

Wonderful lunch at Rosa! The guacamole was on point and the Birria tacos were the best tacos of any I've ever eaten at this restaurant. Everything was flavorful and delicious. Highly recommend!

amazing experience birria queso tacos were so good. the service was great. Joakin was super kind and very attentive thank you

Fairly authentic cuisine with a mild fusion twist in some cases. Portions are between reasonable and generous.

Made-at-the-table quacamole is a fun treat for first timers or kids. Ordered several different tacos, chile relleno, beef empanada. The latter 2 were tasty and we'll presented. Didn't get a chance to eat the tacos and had to doggy bag them die to restless kids. Worthwhile but not a standout in terms of 'must visit' places. I.e. would recommend for first timers.

Ce fut un grand moment !

Nous avons été très bien accueilli et extrêmement bien conseillé par le serveur Armando. Nous étions déjà venu il y a 7 ans, et c’est toujours un plaisir, de voir préparer le guacamole frais devant la table où il est servi. Les quantités sont vraiment impressionnantes pour ce tarif ! Une très belle expérience. À renouveler dès que possible!

This has been one of my favorite restaurants and I am a big restaurant fanatic. However unfortunately this along with the few others I've been to recently have absolutely gone downhill. From their appetizers to the entrees, the menu has not only changed for the worse, it's disappointing. If they want to survive, they should definitely revert back.

The food is pretty amazing here and the service is one of a kind. They have a great menu selection and everything taste amazing.

I had the steak nachos and steak tacos with frozen margaritas and everything was absolutely delicious! I will be going back soon!

Service - 5

Food - 4 Vibes - 3.8 Overall - 4 Went on a Friday night for dinner at 730pm w three friends. Our server was great and we never waited too long for anything. It was so packed though which made it very loud and not the easiest to have a conversation. However, it’s really nice to see restaurants busy again!

- Went there with my family and it was really nice! They have a kids menu but bought from the adult menu for my kids because I was worried about portion size (even though it was personally not my first visit but it was my first visit with children). My kids ended up eating most of the adult portion and were very satisfied but complained it was a little spicy even though we all ordered mild. But other than that everything else was fantastic! We get free refills, food was on point, and waiter was really kind even though he seemed very busy. Loved interior design and water jar on table. Loved watching them make and serve guacamole in front of us. Next time I come back I will try their drinks!

Cute place, nice decor, food was good. I had the ceviche tasting, and it did not disappoint. My date had the salmon and portion was good as well as taste. Fresh guacamole made table side we had the lump crab meat. Although the waiters' attitude was bad, we didn't let him ruin our time. He was very condescending.

Got nachos and build your own tacos for table of 4. It was delicious and a lot of food. The only downside is how loud it gets but it’s expected from a restaurant of that size. Hard to have a conversation and hear each other.

On a night out after work didn't even know it was restaurant week and had the best 3 course meal and cocktails plus freshly made guacamole at the table! All of the staff was friendly and professional. I was also able to stay fully gluten free which was awesome!

The restaurant was extremely crowded on a Friday evening, and our waiter hardly came over to check on us. We ordered two different margarita cocktails, but they were quite disappointing. I don't really understand what all the hype is about. The last time I visited this place was about 10 years ago, and I don't think I will be coming back again.

We visited the restaurant to try out the Restaurant Week menu. To be honest, it was better than our expectations and much better than the margaritas. The portions were very generous, the chicken tortilla soup was delicious, and the churro was probably one of the best I've ever had.

I really wanted to like this place! The staff were amazing, the environment was on point, and the music was fire. Sadly, the food as well. I had the flautas, and they were overfryed to the point of visible burnt marks, and the chicken had little to no flavor. My daughters shared the carnitas torta, almost the same review: the majority of the bread was overfryed, with the ends scored. The biggest treat was the guacamole and staff.

I come to this restaurant quite often and never have a problem, the food is always good with a good atmosphere. This last visit was very off, it took us 30 mins to order our drinks then we ordered our appetizer however the appetizer came way before our drinks which was horrible then we finished two sets of drinks and haven't even ordered our food. The waiter was well off that day and said they were short staffed on a Saturday afternoon.

This Restaurant is Nice. I'm not too sure about the food. It seemed really Rich. My stomach was bloated before I finished eating. But then again. It could have been the bowl of nachos. I ate before the dinner came. Lol.

I wish i could have left a better review for this restaurant, but the prices and service left much to be desired.

When ordering, i asked for a small side of guac to accompany my quesadilla, as I didn’t want the $18 table guac for just myself. immediately, the guac guy (not our server, but another employee) brought us the table guac and when i asked to confirm that this was just a side to dip the quesadilla in, he said that the $18 full serving was the only option. then he started making it and said the order had already been put in. upon my first bite of the guacamole, it was immediately too spicy, and I attempted to flag down our server and let him know. when he eventually came over, I asked to just send the guac back, since it was way way more than I had asked for and it was far too spicy for me to eat. The server became frustrated and left, only to return later and tell me that i had to pay the $18 for guac that was too spicy and way more than i ordered.

Other than the Guac Incident, the rest of our food was decent. the pomegranate margarita was sweet but strong.

For the price, I would expect better service and communication on what is truly available.
