GF items marked on menu. Waiter somewhat knowledgeable. They did however mess up our drink order and 2/4 of our dinner orders. Everyone else had finished their meal before I got mine, so I ended using cancelling it. There were 4 of us and we ordered the nachos, we each got 2 chips. The nachos were not labeled as GF, but the waiter said he would ask and have them put any of the toppings that had gluten on the side. When it was delivered the food pusher said that everything about the nachos was gluten free. I did have the nachos and so far feel OK. Overall pretty good with the GF stuff, but in general poor service and the food was fair to good. Small portions. I would not go back.

We ate outside on the patio. The guacamole in mortar and pestle was amazing. The staff is knowledgeable and it was awesome that they had a dedicated fryer. It felt a little generic, but the ambience at least outside was awesome.

We specifically went to Rosa Mexicana because of this site. We researched places to eat, looked at the menu and were looking forward to eating there. We were in Boston from Philadelphia and sat down after the drive. We ordered all the things we wanted to try. Unfortunately the waitress came to tell us that the plantains were not fried in the designated fryer. The waitress had marked the plantains as wheat allergy and the kitchen did not adhere to the ticket. My daughter, who has celiac, had already eaten two of them. The waitress told me not to freak out and the manager was dismissive. I can’t tell you how disappointed were are. I give this restaurant a zero.

I loved my experience here! I went because I was in the area and saw all the other great reviews of this place on this app and it lived up to the expectations. So many gf options, I had chips and salsa as well as tortilla soup and a frozen margarita. I have celiac and I had no issues at all of any kind and the server made it clear that they understood I was gluten free. Great place!! Will probably return!

This is definitely one to remember if I ever go back to Boston. The chips and salsa given to the table are gluten free, as well as a number of entrees. I got the enchiladas Suizas which although a little spicy, I really liked and I devoured. Also recommend the hibiscus iced tea which I really liked

There are several gluten free options ! The salsa is outstanding! The service however is immature! They have a lot to learn about keeping the dinning room peaceful and the customers first! Our sever was very distracted by her back of the house chores! The wait staff was busy playing and being loud even when addressed. Be prepared for a loud environment!

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.

Outstanding upscale Mexican fare with a kitchen that uses little or no flour in their meals. The fish tacos were made with fresh fish pieces that lived up to a seaport venue. Friendly service and nice outside patio and lounge.

Good, but sure it completely depends upon who is your server. Very loud and easy to have misunderstandings.

Someone mentioned that there is no wheat on the premises. Pretty sure that is not true. But there are a lot of portions and the fryer is dedicated for the corn chips.

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!

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.

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.

Amazing all around. Love trying new restaurants in the area but have never been to Rosa Mexicana until now. I am celiac so I have had my fair share of Mexican food, and this place stands out. Food- incredible. The elote, Birria tacos, Aad the Queso Fundido… ALL FIVE STAR items! The menu never mentioned anything about a shared fryer but the chips were safe for me! We will definitely be coming back in the very near future… not sure if we’ll try new items or just endulge in those because they were the best we’ve had in a while! Cheers to finding a new favorite spot in town!

Also easily swapped flour tortillas for corn. And plenty of already GF options that were clearly labeled and readily available!
