The empanadas are a great appetizer and the sauce that comes with them is good as well. I tried the chicken tacos and that was pretty tasty as well. Chips were good, and the salsa was okay - nothing special, though. The restaurant has a pleasing décor and service was good as well - since it's near the Verizon Center, just be wary of long wait times if there is an event taking place that night (I always recommend making a reservation if you plan on eating in the Chinatown area). Overall, Rosa Mexicano serves pretty good Mexican food, especially for the DC area. I'd definitely come back to try some of their other dishes (and for the empanadas).

3 stars seems low, but I also understand it. The food is great, truly... but also expensive for what it is. The waiter brought us chips and salsa to start. Both nice. Nothing extraordinary, but salty and good. My fiancé and I split cheese enchiladas and the skirt steak plate. Both got lots of mms from us. The skirt steak plate was supposedly served family style, but didn't seem to be for more than one person. We were hoping to have leftovers to take home but had none! We also each got a drink. I had white wine sangria. It was very sweet. I wish the wine taste had cut through a little more, and that the fruit in it were more substantial. The fruit was mostly a few tiny chunks of apple and cucumber. For the three of us, including tax and tip, it was $105. Were I to go back, I'd simply not get the drink. $35pp is a bit steep, but if you take out the $10 from the drink... a $25 meal in the middle of town that is every bit delicious--that's not terrible in my book. I'm tempted to try the guacamole but it's just so expensive. We got the equivalent guacamole when we went to Oyamel and it wasn't worth it. It was delicious but was just guacamole. I have to imagine that Rosa Mexicano's would be the same. I just don't know if any guacamole is worth more than $5 or so, and this is almost triple that.

Love Mexican food and this place is perfect to get you're eat on. A little messy but that's how we like it.

PROS: Loved the fresh guacamole, good food/portions, great atmosphere, great location (right across from Gallery Place metro station), friendly staff. CONS: While the staff were friendly, the service could use some improvement. Small price to pay for fresh, authentic mexican cuisine. Overall, I recommend this place and will definitely go again.

The food is great but expensive. Plus, I really did not enjoy my last visit there. We went to Rosa's for my friend's 25th birthday celebration before we went to the club. The service was horrible!!! I don't know if it was because it was close to closing time or what but I do not plan on returning. The waiter forgot my guacamole and chips order and just gave us salsa. They also disappeared when it was time to get the bill. My experience at Rosa's is usually a great one, so I was completely shocked.

If you want traditional, authentic Mexican food then there are better alternatives but this chain serves it's purpose as a more upscale chain. Although the food is good, the prices are not. Im originally from California so I'm used to getting a lot more for the money. Overall, not a bad experience.

The food is reasonable, though perhaps a bit overpriced. However, the exception is the guacamole: GET IT. They make it at your table & it's excellent. Also a destination for churros for the ~11 months that the nearby holiday market isn't around.

Come here with a friend for Happy Hour (Daily 4-7pm). Sit at the bar and get a Pomegranate or Mango Margarita and their UNLIMITED tableside-made Guacomole en Molcajete. Don't stay for dinner. Trust me, you'll be very, very happy.
