    Before last visit, I had been twice and had great experiences. However, this last visit topped it all. From the attentive service (server was Eric- incredible), to food (guacamole amazing as are entrees), to the margaritas. We even had the manager checking on us throughout leisurely meal (amazing day- relaxed on patio) and made us feel as if restaurant was truly run well and the customers made a priority. We had to ask Eric, our server, to send manager out to rave on his impeccable service and the overall experience. Definitely a great addition to the neighborhood.

    Everything about the restaurant was wonderful. Our waiter was attentive and provided excellent options to try for drinks and food. I enjoyed the Taxi margarita(margarita mixed with sangria) and the #4 meal(enchiladas, taco, rice and beans) which were both delicious. The portions are large and have options so that you may try more than one item. The live band was a nice touch. If you want to be able to see them, ask for a table in the front. I would highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to visiting again.

    We live ax cross the street so this neighborhood gem is easy to choose. The entire xpirience was lout standing. Food, outstanding service etc. but... We wee seated next to where the band was going to play and our entire meal was interrupted with the band setting up. They never played, just bumped our chairs and came past over and over with carts of their equipment. Seat us upstairs then please.

    Although the food and dining service was excellent the hostess was a bit to be desired. We were meeting 2 additional people which we advised the hostess - we weren't sure if they had arrived - at first she couldn't locate our reservation - we waited over 30 minutes for our other guests only to find out that she had seated them 5 minutes before us under my reservation - then seated us at the opposite end of the restaurant. Both parties questioned her as to the arrival of the other and we were told they had not arrived . When we finally telephoned one another and realized we were both there - she just laughed and said "isn't that funny?" No not really -

    The overall experience was a good one. The only thing that annoyed me was that I placed two reservations because I had a larger party and they only had one reservation. They did their best to accommodate my large party. It took longer for them to do so. Other than that everything else was great.

    I ordered the brisket tacos. Unfortunately it was the saltiest brisket I have ever eaten, I also think the kitchen forgot to put the cheese on the tacos. It could have really used some sort of slaw (green apple or even traditional) as a balancer. The guacamole was good though...

    I had just finished a strenuous workout and couldn't decide on what or where to eat, so I went to my Open Table app, find Mi Cocina booked a reservation, jumped in the shower and off we went. Our server, Angelina was very courteous and offered great suggestions to my niece since she had never dined at the restaurant. We sat out on the balcony and the ambience and breeze was very fitting.

    Food was ok, but staff was extremely confused and lacked basic server knowledge. Even the manager was unskilled and did not know the different food items. E.g. Failed to look at the plate of food and only looked at receipt. Thus everyone's order was delivered wrong.

Wow! it was super good, great service, cool ambiance, great parking and just a perfect meal! The guacomole, the brisket, the salad, the flan, the margherita sangrias ... mmm ... Thank you so much for a great Mothers Day experience !

    I have been to Mi Cocina two weeks in a row and it is a solid mexican restaurant. More upscale that the normal mexican-dive, the downstairs is energetic and the upstairs, great for conversation. The food is good and this place is worth a try. The manager went above and beyond to make our experience on Saturday extra special.

    I had a reservation for 7:30 and my party was seated a 7:50, on Cinco de Mayo. My party ordered dinner immediately upon being seated. At 8:55, food still had not arrived and we left. A bowl of guacamole sat on our table for 35 minutes but we had no chips with it. Server was polite, but this was my worst experience in 15 years. I cannot call it a dining experience because we never received our food. Avoid this establishment.

    Food is always fresh and good. Arrived to find hostess scrambling for a table for 6 even though restaurant empty and we had reservation. Requested a certain table only to be told it was reserved.....sooo where was our reserved table?? Wandered around like an Easter egg hunt looking for a table. Ended up with 3 different servers in sequence like we were being handed off. All in all a good experience but not sure what was up with the table game we had to play or the server turnover.

    Mi Cocina is a welcoming, nice little Mexican restaurant. My family and I visited during their Lunch/Brunch hours. Although I found the food we ordered to be tasty, especially their Posole, it didn't stick out to me from the other numerous of Mexican restaurants to choose from. There is a chance that I may not have ordered their signature dishes, but their fajitas - something I really enjoy - didn't have enough flavor. Next time I will definitely try some of their tacos to see if that tastes better. What I did leave feeling very happy about was the service my family and I were treated with. The staff was very welcoming and attentive during our visit. Looking forward to returning and trying other dishes in hopes of that "wow" factor.

    Food and service were very good. The past 2 times dining here, waiter stated he/she was "new" but service was still good. Sampler platter (appetizer) is good enough for a meal and when paired with cerviche, two people can dine on these and be satisfied.

    I really enjoyed dining at Mi Cocina. I've been here twice now, once with my boyfriend for a romantic Valentine's dinner and again with my family to celebrate a birthday. I've had pleasant experiences during both visits. If you like seafood, I really recommend getting the Salmon a la Parilla and the Ceviche (don't remember the entire name) -- the shrimp appetizer dish. Also, the Mama chicken dish was quite nice as well. The menu pricing seemed fair, although I think the alcoholic drink menu was a bit overpriced. I also wish there were more dessert options, as I am a big dessert fan. But luckily the location is right across from Café Intermezzo which covered my sweet tooth craving. All I can say is.. I will definitely be dining here again!!
