    Table side guac tastes good. Not sure if it is worth it (enough for one bowl of chips). Mole Poblano is kinda sweet sauce (not my type). Outdoor seating is great. Good margaritas.

    The tequila menu is extensive & fabulous. Vegan, gluten-free tacos are delicious. Don't need to order a side of beans--they bring black beans to the table. The guac is quite good, though spendy.

    I don't like neither guacamole nor avocado but this guacamole was incredibly delicious! Please give it a try and you won't regret! Also best nachos I've ever tried. Mango margarita is good too :)

    From their award-winning tableside guacamole to their signature pomegranate margaritas, Rosa Mexicano is the "gold standard" in "upscale" modern Mexican cuisine -- and the best National Harbor eats.

    Awesome views. Guacamole is a must. I wasn't impressed with their entree menu. We ended up having beef enchiladas and they weren't that good to me. Service was excellent. Friendly staff as well.

    Get the guac. So good. The Chile Pablano Relleno was excellent - the bed of asparagus was a nice addition. And, the rice was unexpectedly good: soft and creamy, almost like a risotto.

    THEY HAVE THE BEST GUACAMOLE! Also loved the tortilla soup-- so good! The ceviche is a "don't"!. If in the bar, sit near bartender Cory- you'll laugh all night and he's cute too! :)

    Guacamole made fresh in front of your eyes. Very tasty. However the vegan options at this restaurant are completely lacking which is surprising for a cuisine of rice and beans.

    Steak and chicken tacos are both delicious. Thought I wouldn't like it cause I'm used to Tex Mex but it was great! The sides are great too, definitely recommend trying

    Good but not great; ordering carefully is a must. The ceviche isn't worth it and the carnitas are under seasoned. The guacamole is done well, as are the fish tacos.

    The jumbo lump crab fajitas is quite sour. I should have enjoyed it better if the shell is not included. It is very expensive. Butterflied red snapper is just okay nothing really special.

    Avoid it, unless you enjoy tartare a la creme brûlée, mayonnaise empanadas and other atrocities against Mexican food. Not to be confused with the NYC branch which maintains its standard.

    Can be a bit pricy, but is definitely worth it! The food is fantastic, the staff is incredibly efficient, and the freshly made guacamole is worth it!

    Guacamole is very good. Fondue is excellent. Filet w wild mushroom is too heavy on the wild mushroom sauce. Could've been cut by 75%!

    Don't eat here. My overpriced enchiladas came literally three minutes after I ordered them, which says exactly what you think about the quality and flavor of their food.

    Wonderful waiter, although the view would've been better if I got to see the water the restaurant atmosphere was wonderful GO HERE!!

    You are right, the view is awsome, even if just for a relaxed brew. No draft brews :(, plenty choice of mexican bottled beers though :)

    Don't eat here. It's only good for guacamole made table side and drinks....and I think you can get that at the bar and save yourself the wait

    The food was great but the service was lacking. Our wait staff never.checked on us or came by to see if we needed drinks. Actually had to hint him down twice.

    guac is amazing. service is slow and hence waits are long. serving sizes are unusually small for a Mexican restaurant. view is great.

    The tortilla soup is not as superb as I have expected. The soup is bland with a little bitter aftertaste. The chili is just right.

    Best guacamole I've ever had! The pomegranate frozen margaritas are also delicious!

    The fried plantains were magic (practically a dessert). The chicken tortilla 'pie' was a little bland, but the rest of the meal was excellent.

    Try the flatbreads or paninis or whatever the fuck they're called. During lunch, one plate is enough to feed two...and I eat A LOT

    Service is slow and inattentive. The food is fine, but you can't leave without a check that may take half an hour to receive.

    They don't take reservations on the weekend during the summer. Wait can be 2 hours or more easily. Ridiculous.

    Short ribs are excellent. Guacamole is really good, too. And great view of the Potomac River.

    Incredibly bad service in the bar and waited more than an hour for a table never to be seated. Do not come Here if it is busy.

    Waits are somewhat long. But food is delicious. Expect to pay around $17+ for entrees.

    don't even attempt to walk in for dinner with a party of 4 on a Saturday. We were told it was a 2 hour wait without a reservation. :(
