We've always know we are getting a quality meal when we eat here. Last night our server, Ivanna, was fantastic. She made great suggestions, was prompt with drink refills and answered all of our questions thoroughly. The food was fast and delicious.

Food is average but prices are not. Great guacamole but the price is not. Seriously, how do you get off charging the price you do for the portion size. Bring a flashlight to read the menu. Won't be going back.

Just an average overpriced mexican restaurant in the Riverside Mall in Hackensack. Service was average at best. Sitting outside was not a good idea as there are cars parking within 10 feet of your table, alarms going off, people beeping horns. Food was average at...More

The food was great and the ambiance is good too. I like the chips and salsa to start with and there is different flavor that you can enjoy and appreciate if you are a foody like me. I would definitely like to go back there...More

Our first Rosa Mexicano to open in New Jersey is located at The Shops at Riverside in Bergen County. The 160-seat restaurant features a spacious bar and lounge area, as well as outdoor and private dining options. Under the creative direction of architect and designer Timothy Higgins, the decor features vibrant colors such as vivid pink, deep maroon, rich butterscotch and warm yellow. Traditional craftwork and adornments include Oaxacan wood carvings of mythical animals, custom wax-dipped artwork, Mayan Indian textiles, and folk art masks. Tortillas are fresh-made on-site at a station featuring colorful tiles and a hammered copper hood. Through the unique designs and cuisine, all will encounter an authentic Mexican experience at Rosa Mexicano.
