    Asha was amazing and you were lucky to have her. She made great recommendations and was really pleasant. We couldn’t believe that you had no olives for martinis. Also, why bring the chips and salsa 15 minutes before the guacamole

    Sunday is the day before fresh food is delivered from Sysco. Salsa's were expired. Mushroom dishes weren't available. Service is inexperienced. Needs far more quality control before attempting again.

    This is my second time and the food was amazing but each time the service was not as great. My servers forgot about me each time. I’m not sure if l I’ll return which is a bummer because I really like the food and ESPECIALLY the margaritas!

    The service was horrendous. They need to hire experienced wait staff and train them. A few examples - they made the guac and forgot chips, all the food came out at once, she forgot my husband’s second drink and charged us, brought the check without clearing the table or even asking if we wanted dessert or another round. They need to do better or the restaurant will fail which is unfortunate as the food was pretty good.

    We made a reservation and requested to sit outside but when we got there, there was a 30 minute wait for outdoor seating. The inside was nicely decorated but it was loud and the a/c was cranking. They did not seem to be understaffed and our server was nice but it took a while to get the drinks and for her to take our order. We ordered guacamole which also took a while (it was not made at our table). The margaritas were very good but expensive. The wine was also expensive and not very good and the only rose that they had was sparkling. The food was good but not spectacular and fairly expensive. This would be a place to go if you want a fun night out with some friends and don't mind paying a lot for food and drinks. If you want a quiet evening with gourmet food and good wine it probably isn't the right place.

    The best part of the meal was the chips and fresh guacamole. The food was just OK. Our food took way too long to get to the table. Comment from the waitress, “Was it worth the wait?” Unfortunately, it was not. I’ll stick with Buena Vista around the corner.

    My dining experience was perfect at Rosa! From food, to drinks to my server. I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to drink and Oscar make me a perfect drink! My server Cole was amazing, he was very tentative to my sons allergies and always came back to my table to make sure we were always good. Excellent service all around!

    For my Dad’s birthday we thought it would be nice to dine locally at a new hip spot. We sat at the bar, ordered drinks, and apps. My drink did not include the chile salt rim so the bartender made another free of charge. The drink itself was nothing special (the Blood Orange Margarita). The bartenders were nice and accommodating enough. The appetizers… where to start. We ordered Shrimp Ceviche and Crab Guacamole. The Ceviche was horrendous, it tasted like BBQ sauce. The shrimp did not taste very fresh either. The guac took 20 minutes to get to us to find out they could not accommodate our request for no onions. Disappointed, but hungry, we ate the plain guac. The taste was bland and underwhelming. The chips were stale and also way too salty. We decided after spending $100 after tip to get two basic apps, and 3 total drinks enough was enough. We did not even bother with a main course. Overall, the value here is what bothers me. To spend a crispy benjamin and receive no type of adequate or filling food is the problem. Waste of $100….

    My wife and I had eaten at Rosa Mexicano in NYC and Washington several times, so we were excited that one had recently opened in Ardmore, PA. We made a reservation for this past Saturday evening. The food was not very good, the service was mediocre and the noise level was very awful - we could barely have a conversation between the two of us. We will NOT be visiting Rosa Mexicano again, particularly the one in Ardmore.

    Went for a birthday celebration and it didn’t seem to be overcrowded at all. However, it took 10 minutes for our server to come and take our drink order and another 10-15 for the drinks to come. We ordered six items for the table to share and received three. We would of made our server aware, had she come over to the table at all. The food we did receive was great, but small servings. When our server did come back, we made her aware and she apologized and brought us the check and did not offer to bring the missing food. Drinks were very expensive and low quality. Would love to try the food again because what we did get was great. But not willing to risk a similar experience.

    Authentic Mexican way beyond tacos and enchiladas, along with good variety of drinks. We got great service from Princess who, realizing our entrees were taking longer than acceptable, was attentive in keeping us informed and actually comping a beer that took way too long to arrive. Our conversation and beverages kept us engaged and when entrees arrived, the time lag was basically forgotten. While the whole place was lively with conversation, the bar conversation was tough to follow thanks to an extremely noisy ice making and crushing machine that was non-stop. That's got to be addressed. Bartenders were apologetic, but you could sense it was driving them crazy, as well.

    The food is Gringoized Mexican and quite pricey. But that seems to be acceptable for its Mainline location. It was very busy. Service was pleasant but very very slow. On that, our experience might have been unusual. Food was meh.

    Our OpenTable reservations were not there when we got there but they were able to seat us thankfully. Three tequila brands that were on the menu were not available and my wife’s meal that she asked for no chorizo came to the table with extra chorizo… other than that it was good…other than having to ask for our finished drink glasses to be taken away…

    Good was great! All of it. The drinks were also pretty good albeit a bit pricy, but that’s not a deterrent. The lack of stars is solely due to the slowness/disappearance of our waitress who was super sweet, but just not there. We were there for 2.5 hours (and we eat fast 😅) and food came out relatively fast after ordering. I would totally go again, just hope service is more available.

    Ashley was a very nice and effecient waitress. Guacamole tableside was good. Unforunately, the entrees were poor at best. Enchiladas were room temp and not enjoyable at all. Sonoma Cutrer by the glass was a very light pour for $18 when its about that price for a bottle retail. Not planning to return anytime soon. Disappointed.

    Mannnnnn…me and my family was soooo hype to go to this place!! It’s a real cute place. Butttttt the services sucks & took 20mins to even acknowledge us at our table. He comes over to takes are drink order, my sister and cousin thought there “ margaritas” was ok. I didn’t like mines so I sent it back.. so then some lady comes over and started making our guacamole. I started asking her questions all to find out that she didn’t even speak English nor understand English. So she called our server over and I asked him could we add things to the guacamole. He gave me a stupid look and I had to explain to him what I meant. I wanted to add lobster to my guacamole he said OK we will bring one out. My sister looks at me and say is he gonna bring out a whole lobster , we were all confused. Then he comes back and say” there is no more lobster”. I’m like OK fine forget it . So we order our food, I ordered the” Ribeye steak” which is $50, my sister and cousin orders the “shrimp tacos & Mac & Queso”. 40 minutes goes by and our food had yet to come out. Finally our food comes out, By some person we have never seen, he just dropped the food at the table and leaves. Another 15 minutes go by I’m looking for my server because I do not have a steak knife and I want a A1 sauce.. so he comes over and I asked him for A1 sauce “ they don’t have any” ask for A steak knife, thank the Lord he bought it right back to me.. so everyone has their food and we start eating, lorddddddd, I asked for my steak to be “medium well” it was completely burnt and taste like charcoal, my cousin and my sister tacos , tortillas were soggy and nasty. So they just ate the shrimp out of the tortillas. I sent my steak back and just told him I was okay. So the only thing that was really good was the guacamole other than that everything else sucked!! We will never go back again!! So I do not recommend this place!! And if you do decide to go there just sit at the bar!
