If you could give a half a star I would rate this 5 and 1/2 stars. I just think that 5 stars has to mean absolutely the best ever. We visited the Baja Coast this past February, and the food at Rosa Mexicano was better than any place we ate in Mexico.
Our experience was terriffic. My wife and I were there with our two children, 11 and 12. They are one of the few nice New York places that actually offer a reasonably priced childrens menu, so we were off to a good start. The entire staff was attentive and the atmosphere was very nice as well.
Our daughter has celiac disease (Gluten Free Diet) and they also had a gluten free menu, which is another thing hard to find in New York. They were so accomodating. The manager came out to our table and explained that if we wanted them to, they would start up a fresh frier with new oil to make her french fries. (He knew that her food items could not be fried in any oil that had bread crums in it.) He told us it would just add a few extra minutes to our orders.
I was having a little trouble seeing the menu and without prompt, our waiter came over and handed me a pen flashlight. He did an excellent job explaining the food. He even brought us out small samples of the various sauces to help us choose the right ones. I had the Crab Meat Enchiladlas with the green sauce, and they were outstanding. My wife had a chicken dish with a red sauce that was also outstanding.
We all had dessert, and my wife and I had coffee. The entire bill was only about $125.00 with drinks (we each had two). I though that was pretty darn good for New York.
