Miami New Times' Description

As Rosa has expanded nationally over the years, its upscale take on Mexican standards has dissipated somewhat. But surprise, surprise: The cuisine at the new South Beach branch boasts strong, cleanly defined flavors; the service staff works with relay-team efficiency; and a festive ambiance prevails. Among starters, don't miss the red snapper tostadas: lime-macerated cubes of fish sprinkled with baby arugula leaves, queso fresco, Serrano chilies, truffle oil, and bacon crisps. Zarape de pollo rocks too, with moist, sassily smoked-and-seasoned morsels of chicken sandwiched between two corn tortillas and bathed in yellow-pepper/habanero sauce. A basket of corn tortillas with pronounced notes of corn and slaked lime come alongside juicy strips of carne asada in a mini-cast-iron skillet with melted Chihuahua cheese - a make-your-own taco kit. Vegetarians can build their own tacos from a skillet of mixed vegetables, red beans, and flax-seed tortillas. Rosa's mellow mole Veracruz is one of the better restaurant versions, here bathing shredded beef enchiladas. A more unusual treat presents two roasted ancho chiles rellenos swelled with shredded lamb shoulder and cabbage in pipián sauce. Other main plates ($15 to $27) include short ribs, pork shank, and steak and shrimp stew. Desserts ($7.50 to $8.50) are prepared in-house by pastry chef Jai Kendall. Banana chocolate-chip cake funneled with peanut butter mousse and topped with chocolate syrup and cinnamon-swirled banana ice cream might sound a bit overwrought, but just say yes.

    The place looked attractive and we thought Mexican food would be a great choice...BOY! DID WE MAKE A BAD CHOICE!!!!! This "ROSA" was full of thorns!

    First, we sat outside and within minutes the nazi hostess shows-up at our table. Not to welcome us but to advise us that in the future we must first see her to be seated (note: she was not there when we... More >>

    Eat up some Mexi Joint goodness like the Chicken Tortilla Pie with poblano pepper cream sauce and Chihuahua cheese, also how the Taco Bell dog managed to bang Spuds MacKenzie’s sister, Julie.

    The 2nd location features all the favs (pork belly tacos, that famous tableside guac) with a SoBe twist: a DJ spinning until 1 AM on weekends & Sunday brunch featuring DIY Bloody Mary trolley carts.

    Guacamole made fresh table side. Remarkable Mexican food. A delicious drink menu. A sophisticated but fun dining experience.

    Take a break from the tequila and have them make you an "El Vaquero" cocktail. It's a Mexican Lynchburg Lemonade.. Agave nectar, fresh lemon & grapefruit juice spiked with Jack Daniels.

    Try the Tres Leches with Raspberries for dessert!
