Although I'm confident it's not gluten making me sick here- it's all the fatty sauces, I just can't understand why anyone likes this place. I live so close, it would be the easiest place to meet people and enjoy dinner. But no matter what GF dish I order, I can't eat but a few bites before the fat is separating on the dish and I'm grossed out. So in a pinch I would go here because it's celiac safe but the food is sooo overpriced even as a New Yorker who loves her food and is willing to pay for it.
Be careful! The GF menu has items with the same exact names as the non-GF menu. I ordered from the GF menu, but they brought me something battered and fried; they agreed it was full of gluten, and the GF version was supposed to be roasted, not fried. We're not sure at what point the mistake was made, so take extra precaution when ordering. I also advised them to name the GF version "roasted..." and the regular "fried..." on the respective menus to avoid confusion, but a glance at the menu recently showed they didn't take my suggestion.
Tasty guacamole was made fresh. Waiter was knowledgeable about our celiac requirements. Great food!
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.
Wonderful experience! Good service. Great guacamole prepped to our "heat" level, table side. Excellent food with unique flavors. What a treat! Right across from Lincoln Center. I'll be coming back!
I have had many Excellent GF meals. Top quality Mexican food (not The usual Americanized stuff). High end ingredients, service, decor, and price.
good food and extra careful the waiter even went to check the bag of cheese to make sure there was no flour in it. it had potato flour as anti caking agent. very accomodating
Good GF menu get the GF flautas really good and you have to try the guacamole!!!
AMAZING HIGH QUALITY MEXICAN REAL AUTHENTIC DELICIOUS OUT OF THIS WORLD! EXPENSIVE BUT TOTALLY WORTH IT! THE BEST IS THE FROZEN MARGARITAS!!
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.
So.. I'm a food snob. I've traveled a lot. Rome, Anchorage, NYC, the American Southwest... This food may have been the best I've ever had. Top 5 for sure. Michael, our server, was amazing and knowledgeable of being gf. There were maybe 2 things on the regular menu that weren't gf. According to our server, nothing that has gluten goes in the fryer, so the tortilla chips were safe (and super delicious, along with the salsa!!!) The fried plantains were phenomenal and so was everything else. Amazing service, fair prices, outstanding food, and my husband and I (Celiac, and gluten intolerant, respectively) both feel great!!!!
GF menu was great even for a vegetarian like myself. Food was DELISH!!!! Service was FABULOUS. One of my 11 year old twins claimed "this is the best quesadilla I've had in my life", and he ordered a whole wheat quesadilla! Can't say enough great things about our experience.
Rosa's has a dedicated gluten free menu and the staff was reasonably knowledgeable on the topic. The food was outstanding though fairly pricey (south beach). We'll likely go back though just because it's hard to find places we trust. (They also mentioned they have a dedicated fryer for the corn chips)
We had an amazing experience. We ate gluten free without fear. Our waiter, Rodger, took the time to speak to the chef and ensure all foods that we ordered were gluten free down to the chips, salsa & guac. Highly recommend for those with Celiac & gluten sensitive issues. Thank you!!!!
about as pricey as everything else in the area, but good food and great service. the bottomless chips and salsa are gluten free, as are both the bottomless refried black beans and rice that come to the table with your meal, so even if you don't find a lot you enjoy, you can fill up with the freebies. the menu is pretty extensive for gluten free, although not as many vegan options. I had a farmer's market vegetable fajita that was deliciously seasoned and a fairly large serving, and a side of fried plantains as well, also delicious, with the dairy on the side. their sangria was excellent as well. I definitely plan to come back here next year.
As I always do when I arrive in a restaurant I asked if it was possible to have a gluten-free meals and especially without cross contamination, the answer was yes no problem ...When I placed my order with the server I confirms that there Is really no problem with my order, dont worry he told me, I was so happy! he brings me some chips with salsa and again asking him to be sure...After eating some chips the chef comes to my table saying he is truly sorry but the server made a mistake by bringing me chips that was not gluten free, hourra!!! I was really sick for about ten days so I do not really recommend this restaurant seemed to be Celiac friendly!!!
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.
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!!!
Great food, great service! Extensive GF menu, and was marked with stickers to make sure the servers identified it as a special menu. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and talked all about what they do to avoid cross-contamination. The tableside guacamole is a MUST!
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.
Not my favorite kind of food however it was good and i felt really safe.
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.
