Hubby chose this place after finding it on OpenTable. I have very mixed feelings about this place. The staff are friendly and nice, but some of them do not understand English very well. Our waiter was able to speak English, but he addressed us in...More

Good food and service. Pomegranate Margaritas also wonderful. Many different and authentic dishes, as well as the usual burritos and tacos.

Rosa Mexicana in this location is a very happening place. We were there after an Oprah Winfrey conference across the street at the Verizon Center. We went there for drinks and appetizers. It is a very loud, high energy establishment. At times, it was difficult...More

Rosa Mexicano has a great reputation so a few work friends and I went there for lunch today. Based on its reputation I really wanted to like it...but I didn't. The only redeeming characteristic of the meal was the table side guacamole. I ordered the...More

The service is excellent and the table side guacamole is to die for. Found the margaritas a bit on the strong side. We ordered the chicken flautas and when they came out they were swimming in sauce. Not very appetizing to look at. But after...More

Last Friday night we went to Rosa Mexicano. The service is good, the manager is really charming...however, with the exception of the guacamole, the food is not good and the place felt so empty and sad (It was pouring rain but still it was Friday!)....More

Chevy Chase is our third Washington, DC area location. Launched in February 2012, this 150-seat restaurant includes spacious indoor, outdoor, and private dining seating. Blending traditional and modern elements of Mexican craft and architecture, the warm and vibrant decor features Rosa Mexicano’s signature hues of pinks and purples. Multi-dimensional art work complements rich fabrics and textures, as well as a floor-to-ceiling display of tequila bottles. Directly over the bar and extending into the dining lounge area, the ceiling glows with pink haze lighting that is set against an electric blue tiled cascading water wall, inspired by those at sister Rosa Mexicano locations. The enclosed patio area features a wall of vertical colored glass bands, creating a focal point from the street and exhibiting arrival for the Rosa Mexicano experience that awaits.The restaurant’s location is just steps away from Chevy Chase Pavilion and stores such as Neiman Marcus, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Barneys, Gucci and more, among a variety of restaurants and hotels.
