The food was NASTY!!!! The service was poor...

I went for birthday celebration. Waiter didn't even say happy birthday, even after husband stated we were trying their spot for the first time for my very special day.

I will let the Concierge at the Westin Riverwalk hotel know how disappointed we were. This place had the nerve to serve me a water down margarita. And oh, the waiter barely came back to check on us.

Whatever!!! We won't return, and please believe I will put the word out.. Forreal!!!

Not very pretty inside and way too loud. I wouldn't bring guests from out of town here. It's okay if you like the canteen atmosphere.

Fun place for dinner, great salsa, a little loud, but they have the wine cellar open now for quieter dinners, try the shrimp tacos or the mole. Their chocolate flan is the best in town.

good food/too loud – The food is very good, the prices are a little high for Mexican food. It is a bit loud with poor acoustics. A fun place to take out of town guests.

Very dissatisfied – We made reservations Saturday afternoon for Saturday evening for 18 people at 8:30 P.M. We arrived at 8:15 P.M. and had to wait

1 hour to be seated. This made us look but with the other members of the party. Some even had to leave because they had to travel back to Austin.

Not impressed – After reading reviews, I went to Rosario's. It was overrated. The enchiladas were only so-so. Will continue to look for a decent cheese enchilada. Otherwise, the service and decor were fine.

Great Roasted Salsa! – Have been to Rosarios several times and haven't been disappointed. If you haven't figured it out yet, I think they have about the best fire-roasted salsa in "Tex-Mex City, USA" (aka, San Antonio), which is quite an accomplishment. The other great thing about Rosarios is that you can eat, drink and dance without leaving the place - nice to be able to make a night of it in the same establishment. Highly recommended.

Seriously, Don't Wait – First I called to ask if I needed reservations. Answer was an abrupt "NO" and then he hung up on me. So we show up and ask for a table, granted on First Friday. The hostess says thirty minute wait for a table for two. An hour and fifteen minutes later, we are lead to "The Cave." It's a basement with a few tables. It smells musty and quite disgusting. I ask the hostess if she's joking. She smirks and asks if we want to wait longer? Seriously who thought it was a good idea to have tables down in the basement. Voices echo, so dont try having a private conversation. The only good thing about being seated downstairs was the attentive waiter. I think he felt sorry for the unlucky bunch of us stashed down there like unwanted guests. To top it off, the food was not worth the wait.

Great Atmosphere and Food! – Rosario's is a great Mexican restaurant! The atmosphere is festive and colorful, and the food is always excellent. They have GREAT margaritas and I love the smoky flavor of their salsa. I would definitely recommend this place - a San Antonio classic!
