Rosa Mexicano by Lincoln Center
Located directly across the street from Lincoln Center, Rosa Mexicano is the perfect destination for dinner before a performance, or a cocktail after the show.

Crispy corn tortilla chips with zesty salsa norteña
Our food was delicious, the staff was friendly, patient and accommodating. Most importantly the food was excellent and the margarita pitcher was perfect!
We had a great meal with a very kind server. Overall will for sure go back.
The margs + guac were exactly what I needed after a long day. I forget what my main course was but it could have been shoe leather (it wasn’t!) and I would’ve been happy.
Underwhelming. Service was slow, portions small and not as good as on prior occasions.
Service here at the Lincoln Center location is absolutely terrible. Front desk is the worst - never friendly, responsive, or helpful in greeting you or getting you to a table in a reasonable amount of time. It’s like they could care less. They’re much more concerned with the phone than with customers who are in the restaurant. Never pleasant and never going out of their way to actually deliver on the tenets of hospitality.
Upstairs the service was just as bad. It took 15 minutes to get the server back to our table to inform them our orders were incorrect.
Overall it’s the failure of management to let things in the hospitality business be run this poorly.
The service was great and the food was well worth it. I'm definitely going back .
Perfect family friendly and delicious restaurant. Margarita's and Sangria were perfect! Guacamole soo good. Kids happy and adults happy. We will be back!
Excellent service, food was delicious, great spot for dinner night and reservation was granted as requested
The staff was very nice. The food was delicious as well as our drinks. I highly reccommend Rosa Mexicana! This was definetly worth my trip from Queens!
It took more than an hour to get water and two appetizers, one of which was wrong and we sent back. We usually love this place, but I don't know if it is COVID staffing or we came at exactly the wrong moment (the manager ended up waiting on us) but this was an experience we will write off.
The staff is great, we celebrated a birthday and had 7 guests in total. They went out of there way to make it special.
Food is always so good.
I would say the hostess' up front need to be a little more welcoming but the rest of the staff is just tops!
The food was good, but the service was terrible. Only saw our waiter a couple of times. Our drinks we all empty most of the meal. We got beer and water upon ordering, and got one refill of water when the check came. The water glasses are tiny and there was no opportunity to order another round of drinks.
The food was good though. Will probably give them another chance since they are in our neighborhood, but the experience wasn’t great.
Not the same place it used to be. Saturday night dinner. Understaffed waiters. Took 20 minutes to acknowledge we were seated. Had to continually ask for everything. Food was average. Poor value. Perhaps might improve after COVID.
This is an amazing restaurant. My family and I went for some drinks and appetizers and everything was delicious. I highly suggest the margaritas!
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. And this is difficult to say but our dinner was subpar. They changed up the guacamole and now it’s not done table side and it has different ingredients. We did not like it one bit. My wife loved her salmon dish but my steak dish needed a ton of work. They charged me 27 dollars plus tax plus a covid charge and it was nowhere near that. Streak was small and cold when it came to my table and they filled my plate with grilled onions to make the plate look full. Rosa Mexicana will not last if this keeps up.
Great service, nice atmosphere, amazing authentic Mexican food. 10/10 recommend!
Waiter was excellent
The hostess that evening was rude.. She had a attitude keep letting us know oh we close at 9:30 we already knew that
This restaurant has changed a great deal. It appears that there are more people drinking alcohol than eating. The food was good but there were very few waiters. I don’t know if I will ever return.
Great food and service!
The food and service at Rosa Mexicano were spot on. They have maintained their pre-COVID quality.
Perfect evening and wonderful to enjoy an indoor, socially distanced meal.
Food and place are great, would be five star experience if the hostesses were kinder.
First time visit.
Beautiful decor and amazing staff.
The food was exceptional.
The food was inferior to what we had experienced in the past. The menu was limited. The guacamole which was a specialty in the past was truly inferior. The menu was limited and what we did order was disappointing and didn't compare to what we could get at a local Mexican restaurant for a lot less money. We appreciate the challenges of the pandemic but we also want to enjoy the dining experience and that is not possible if the food is poor and the check is inappropriately high. Service was fine.
I loved the whole experience: delicious food, excellent service, and the location. I absolutely recommend Rosa Mexicano
Every time I come here, I am never disappointed. The food is delicious the drinks are good. I love this place.
Every accommodating even though we were late for our reservation. Rice and beans were on the colder side, but everything else was great!
The food was amazing and the service really Dope.
Amazing option for outdoor dining! Great service. Excellent food.
This is not the first time I have been to Rosa Mexicana and it will certainly not be the last. I could not have picked a nicer venue to have lunch on a sunny Tuesday in March.
The food was great and the service was excellent. I was beyond satisfied
We had a wonderful meal and service! I hadn’t been to Rosa in about 10 years and it was even better than I remembered!
beautiful restaurant. Greeted warmly and were seated early as we arrived early due to rain. Our server was excellent but a little over extended. The drinks were good not as spicy as I would like but still recommend the spicy mango margarita and the traditional margarita made spicy. The sizes were a bit small but not skimpy on the tequila. The spicy guac was mild to moderate at most but still good. I had the Carne Asade and it was prepared perfectly. The Carnitas were excellent as well my daughter entree. Both desserts were excellent and get the Cafe Mexicano with it. Over all it was excellent if the guac was actually spicy had a little more salt and lime juice and the drinks were more than 6 ounes at most it would be a five
I don’t like the changes they made with charging extra for chips when you order guacamole. Or not including rice and beans anymore with their entrées.
Great service. Loved the food
