Went downtown looking forward to Mexican food here to find the building dark and the sign to the restaurant removed from the building. Missing the suiza sauce already.

Great atmosphere and interesting food. We had spicy margaritas (not on the menu, just order a house margarita with their jalapeño infused tequila) and chips and salsa (free!) to start with. I'm sure their house made guacamole is delicious but since we were heading to a show we didn't want to eat too much. My husband had a shrimp quesadilla... More

I have been to this restaurant 3 times and to the same chain in Boston once. Excellent food. The guacamole is made table side and is very good. I would categorize this as modern Mexican (Southwestern?) but that may not be the correct term... Great Mexican corn dish and fried cheese sides. I always get the 3 enchiladas or the... More

A very modern decor with wonderful food options. Being a vegetarian, the menu and the items provided were excellent. Loved their margarita - one of the best that I have had. They had vegetarian Tamales (not many places serve them) and they were great. Their kale, cauliflower taco was out of this world. Loved it. Being from out of town,... More

Attended during Ryder Cup with wife and 4 year old. Taco salad, skirt steak entree and pomegranate drink were all tasty. Note happy hour specials in bar area.

We enjoyedd our dinner here one evening last month. I had the 3 enchilada dish with beans and rice, it was great! We loved the chips and salsa too! Everyone else in my party enjoyed their dinner as well. Service was ok, wait staff could be friendlier. It was our first time eating here and plan on returning again when... More

We visited for a friend's birthday. The service was dreadful and the food underwhelming. A waiter dropped food at our feet as we walked through the door but didn't bother to pick it up. Our waiter didn't seem to understand the first two orders even though we pointed at the menu. He walked away returning 5 minutes later. Our Spanish... More

We had a group of 5 people on a Tuesday night. Restaurant was not busy at all so easy to get a table. I liked sitting next to the window so we could watch people on Hennepin Avenue. Food was good, not outstanding. Two of the people in our group felt the waiter was a bit rude so weren't happy... More

We have been to several Rosa locations on the east coast. They are very consistent - the guac is great, the mole is very good, and the margaritas are invariably strong and tasty. We were able to get a table for 14 which required a little extra help from the staff -- which was greatly appreciated. Overall, always a fun... More

The food was just ok. I had the Cotillard enchiladas and my wife had the Carnitas tacos. Service was slow and it was not busy. Lots of broken chips on the floor kind of a turn off. Positives drinks are strong and half price bottles of wine on the weekend. I probably will not be back as there are plenty... More
