    The serving staff was quite knowledgeable about the needs of a Celiac diner. I was advised that just to be on the safe side, I could have corn tortillas rather than the chips when the guacamole was served, even though the chips are considered gluten free. I'd definitely recommend the guacamole- freshly prepared tableside. The gluten free menu had many options. The chile relleno I selected had a crispy delicate batter- and was prepared in a dedicated fryer. A rare treat! I would feel safe eating here again, and the tequila flight was a revelation in flavor. Good experience.

    Rosa Mexicano has a separate gluten free menu but virtually everything on their menu is naturally gf. The food and service were great.

    Seriously good guacamole. World class. GF is easy at a good Mexican restaurant. And this is a good one. Dairy free/Soy free also doable. And really delish.

    It was great. I went there for diner before a show at the pavilion. They have a dedicated fryer and a large gluten free menu. Our waiter Chris was great and very helpful!

    After getting a cc reaction at the columbus ave. location, I was very hesitant to eat here. But, the enchiladas were delicious and this very sensitive celiac didn't get sick at all.

    My family loved it! It was difficult for me because I have additional food intolerances. They were accommodating but, there was not much for me. The guacamole is awesome and, I wish I would have just ordered more of that.

    I ordered the chips and table guacamole because they said they were fried in a separate fryer. I also had a patron silver margarita and the cheese enchiladas with rice and beans. By the time the check came I was in pain. So, not sure what did it. Maybe just CC. But, it's really a shame.

    STAY AWAY! Went with some friends after attending an event at the convention center. We were very excited because it was right across the street. The gluten free menu appeared to have many options, however the wait staff and kitchen are terrible. I have never been so sick in my life, it was THE WORST Glutening experience in my life. I have Celiac Disease and disclosed this to the waitress & host. When my food came out I questioned the tortillas since they look like regular ones and tasted like regular ones. I was assured they were not. Well clearly they were. I got sick on the T and the car ride home and spent the rest of the evening/ next day sick. When I called to inform them about their mistake no one even apologized. This place is a joke and NOT GLUTEN FREE!

    I love Rosa Mexicano! they are awesome there! It's a pricey place, but they're just as nice to you if you can only afford to split appetizers with friends. I went there with 4 gal pals and we each split an appetizer! it was great because they give you a huge bowl of rice, a huge bowl of whipped beans, and a huge bowl of chips in addition to whatever you ordered. Thus, we had no problem stuffing our faces!!! It was prime! I love their service too!!!

    Very tasty food, except the guacamole the asked me how spicy and I asked for medium, but it was more like none...plus expensive compared to the cost of ingredients. Crab empanadas are not gluten free!

    What a WONDERFUL Gluten-free dinning experience. The service was excellent and the waiters were very helpful with dietary needs. Lots of gluten-free choices with LOTS of Mexican flavor! The environment is fun and just adds to the positive experience. Taco soup and chicken enchiladas were GF and really tasty! But the nachos were the very best! The portion is small but the flavor is very authentic and was my personal favorite from the evening. Price wise it was decent but certainly worth what was paid. A must.

    Waiter had trouble understanding the concept of gluten free despite our choosing the destination due to GF menu. My enchilada was tasty but lonely in a huge pool of sauce- exceedingly skimpy meal for the price. I will never go back.

    Waiter was friendly. Had a GF menu. The waiter kinda knew things about the GF menu but gave us the disclaimer "we are not sure so eat/drink at your own risk." They had Corona on their GF menu. Did some research and found Corona has trace amounts of gluten and is not purely gluten free, but it meets certain criteria to be considered gluten free even though its not. Read comments from other franchises and found they may not use a GF cook/prep area. Did not specifically ask our waiter about that.

    Great menu items! Double check when your order arrives that it was prepared gluten free. On more than one occasion I've had to sen food back because accommodations weren't made or were forgotten eg fried onions on a taco even though I ordered from the GF menu. They are great at taking food back to double check though!

    Big GF menu, but I never got a clear answer as to whether chips were made in a dedicated fryer. I ordered the empanadas as an appetizer and they were greasy but tasty. I also ordered the duck tacos which were just okay. I did eat some chips as nachos were in the GF menu, but I was disappointed by how cold and slightly stale the chips were. Staff knowledge about GF was about average.

    My favorite gluten free place. It's always books so go in advance. I'm a super sensitive celiac and I've never gotten sick from them. Mexican food is naturally gluten friendly. Not sure what other reviewer is talking about with pasta water Bc rosa doesn't serve pasta. I'd highly recommend

    They have a large gluten free menu but according to our waiter, they take no precautions in the kitchen to avoid cross-contamination. No cleaning of the prep area, GF pasta cooked in water used to cook conventional pasta, etc. It may be a gluten-free menu in terms of ingredients, but that's only a partial consideration for celiacs. Great for marketing, unacceptable for celiac patients.
