    The Tampiquena de Carne Asada was incredible! A definite must! This should also be socialized with margarita! Don't have the Pollo Abodado! Very overdone...otherwise, my was amazing!!!

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 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.

    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%!

    Marty McCabeMarch 16, 2013
    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.

    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! :)

    The place itself is well decorated and provides nice views of the water and surrounding landscape. Service was pretty good, but entrees did take rather long to come out. Food was decent. 3.7/5.

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

    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.

    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.
