    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    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.

    Wonderful downtown fine dining Mexican food. Everything on the menu is labeled with a "gf". Lots of options. Before ordering, the sever asked if anyone had any dietary restrictions, when I spoke up he made a note. Delicious!

    Gluten free options were clearly marked on the menu. Corn tortillas were delicious. Chips are also gluten free. I had the brunch and the breakfast tacos with potatoes were good. Portions were reasonable. Although I'm from Texas so I expected a little bit of a bigger size plate, but I realize this is NJ not TX.

    Delicious! Clearly marked GF menu with vegetarian options. The chips were safe to eat. ordered carnitas with grilled spiced pineapple, onion, and cilantro, corn tortillas. large portion served with beans, rice, chips and salsa. Any questions were easily answered by the manager who explained his girlfriend is celiac.

    Awesome. i left feeling ill because of how much I ate. . It was all too good! The mild guacamole, made at the table, was perfect. . Our son had GF taquitos. . He loved the guacamole, rice, and beans. We went back to DC this year and had enchiladas and what the manager referred to as Mexican lasagna (chicken, corn tortillas, and cheese layers). Stuffed ourselves again. Only complaint is that there isn't one in our home town.

    I had a really great experience here. There's a dedicated GF menu with lots of options. I ordered the suizas enchiladas with a glass of sangria and it was delicious. My husband (who can eat all the gluten!) wasn't impressed with his chicken nachos that were a little burnt but he really liked what I ordered. It was a little pricier than what we planned to spend on vacation for lunch but it was definitely worth it for the peace of mind and tasty Mexican food.

    When I see fish tacos on a gluten free menu, I get VERY excited. What I got was very sad. The fish was completely unseasoned. Absolutely nothing on it. As the waitress put my dish down she said, oh the sauce isn't gluten free. There was no mention of this beforehand. The guacamole is phenomenal though.

    Amazing food! They have many gluten free options and dedicated fryers. When we informed the waitress of our allergy,she immediately asked if it was Celiac's or preference. They really known the difference and make sure avoid cross contamination. The food is a bit higher than other places, however it is worth it. They are a more classy restaurant and they food was of great quality and taste.

    We stopped by for dinner during a busy time and were, of course cautious, but, our waiter was knowledgeable and was helpful w/our selections. Being a celiac it was refreshing to have someone who was aware of the concerns. Our meals were good and glad we stopped by and no reactions afterward left us w/an overall good feeling about our stop. Was a great stop for our Mexican food fix. The only thing that would have made the experience better would have been a chips and salsa offering to start.
