Safe for celiacs. There are many gluten free dishes which are not listed as such on the online menu. The chips and salsa are safe too. You need to make a reservation if you’re going before curtain time

Wonderful, safe food! Items clearly marked on the menu as GF and the waiter explained to me how the chips are fried with just canola oil in a separate fryer. I had the portabella tacos and a margarita and it was absolutely delicious and inexpensive for NYC! Absolutely would return.

I’m gluten and Dairy Free. After looking for dairy free on this app, this restaurant came up. The menu is clearly marked for gluten free, but not for dairy. And although they list the ingredients, they don’t always list dairy. I asked for no cheese on the main meal but didn’t know the zucchini noodles and beans and rice would have cheese on them. When our meal came everything had cheese on it and they told us they could not make that meal without the cheese. So I asked for the menu again and the waiter shook his head walking away. We re-ordered making sure there was no cheese. There were only about 3 options. I will give them points because the manager personally came to our table, explained what happened, and made sure our food was good to go and had the kitchen rush it out. It was very good in the end. Just some miscommunication.

As someone w Celiac Disease, eating out requires homework, and a great server who understands dietary restrictions, and will communicate w the chef. Mine was perfect. All food was served properly, and he assure me that all were gluten free. Rosa Mexicano delivered true gluten free (no criss contamination) entrees that made me feel like a normal diner.

Flavorful and safe!! The employees didn't bat an eye at gluten free and even assured us that certain tortillas and chips were made from corn, not gluten. This is delicious AUTHENTIC Mexican food! You have to try their guacamole salsa- it goes from a whole avocado and toppings to an amazing salsa right before your eyes! Even the shy ones with the green salsa in our party were addicted. It was so good that I hope to make a similar recipe at home! Rosa Mexicano is a celiac safe feast!

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.

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.

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.

delicious food. only chose gluten-free options, as they were clearly marked on the menu, (ceviche, drool), and the portions were a nice, decent, size. I'm writing this review the day after so I can say with certainty that I did not get sick. even with delivery, seems like the quality I read about is still great

The waitress was very knowledgeable about what was gluten free and what happens in the kitchen. My wife is hypersensitive to cross contamination. We had the chips and salsa. The waitress explained the chips are fried in a different fryer. It was the best Mexican restaurant I have ever eaten at. Definitely will be revisiting.

Based on previous reviews I was looking forward to eating here because I’m from out of town. However, I brought my Nima Sensor just in case. The sensor saved my butt cause my test result was GLUTEN FOUND. I spoke to the manager showing him my result and when speaking to the chef he realized that they heat gf tortillas on the same burner as flour 😱 very glad I tested the food prior to eating even with the glowing reviews. I’ve had diagnosed celiac disease for 6 months now so this would have been awful had I just eaten the meal. The manager gave me the meal for free and made sure the replacement meal was made safely. Waiting to see if I have a reaction later. If I do I will definitely post on here.

Me and my fiance who is celiac went to eat dinner there today. The guac was meh and I got a margarita that was way to strong. The waiter was nice in working with our gluten allergy and tried hair best. The carnitas were super tasty and a must try! Overall it's okay since it was close by our hotel but way over priced.

We have been here a few times, some with my son who has celiac disease. He absolutely loves it here! So much of the ingredients in Mexican foods are gluten-free naturally, but here they make sure to keep a dedicate fryer so that all of the tortilla chips are safe! (I hope that my son will get to a point where he's happy to eat a salad with chicken but he's still young and wants chips & salsa when he has Mexican food.) Menu items are marked, my son has not been glutened and I would recommend this to others with celiac disease or any health reasons for avoiding gluten.

Since their options are naturally GF, they all taste the same! It's nice when items don't need to be modified so that your dish isn't smaller or different.

They accidentally gave me a flour tortilla quesadilla instead of corn. Luckily, I noticed before eating and they made me a gluten-free one. While this was a stressful experience and made me lose some confidence, I did not get sick from the chips/guacamole or the quesadilla after. Just be care and triple-check with them if you need to! I asked twice when I ordered if the quesadilla would be made gluten-free.

Went there because of all the positive recommendations. First waiter gave us corn crisp tortilla chips and dip- I asked for gluten-free and he said yes. Then another waitress came and told me it’s not gluten free if I have Celiac because there is cross contamination because they take the same fryer. Then we wanted to order Guacamole and had a bis discussion with what I should eat is (because we now made clear tortilla chips are not gluten free). So we ordered vegetables- they were disgusting and not really fresh. As main course I ordered tacos with pollo and asked for really being careful because of celiac. Half an hour later i felt very sick and with lots of typical problems... would not go there again. In New York and Miami at Rosa we always ate good and safe- not here...

My wife and I went here tonight for dinner. It was meh! The food wasn’t great (good enough) but nothing special. Food was pretty bland and didn’t have a lot of flavor. I had 3 enchiladas (I’m celiac), my wife had the Budin, and we shared the chips/salsa/guacamole. The guacamole was very tasty but could’ve been spicer. Ordered medium (for my wife) but didn’t have any kick unfortunately. The guacamole was the highlight of the food. Now keep in mind the guacamole was $16, which is over the top for price.

Personally, out of the meals we have had during the past 3 days this the our least favorite.

On a side note I have celiac and I DIDN’T get sick. So the food is safe but just not very tasty.

Menu was clearly labeled “GF”, and the server knew exactly what we needed and confirmed both on the order ticket and then personally that the kitchen understood the celiac/allergy focus for our food. Everything was tasty.

Also witnessed interaction of the manager (I think) explain apologetically for a customer’s food being delivered late to the table; explained there was a mistake in the kitchen and would not charge the customer for the food because of the delay—incredible service!
