    We were seated upstairs and the wait staff made us feel like we were putting him out when he had to walk up/down the stairs to retrieve our food/drinks. Took way too long to get food and drinks. We will definitely not be returning!

    Had a client meeting here for Sunday afternoon lunch. I ordered the Quinceanera Salad with Salmon. It had the right combination of greens, avocado and the dressing was not over powering. It was great. Noise level was low enough that we could communicate with raising our voices. Great restaurant, great meeting.

  • Too Slow for Work

    Dined on 6/21/2014
    Mangers and hostess were inflexible and unable to work with us efficiently during a business lunch hour that had a time window of one hour. If you don't mind hanging around for 2 hours to eat and get the check, then fine. Utterly ridiculous to not be able to get in and out in an hour at lunch. Food is average, and just not good enough to justify the slowness. This happened to me before there about a year ago, but we liked the location so decided to give them another chance, I will not return there after this experience.

    I've heard about Mi Cocina from many friends and while visiting Dallas, I was excited to give it a try! The atmosphere, food and especially the margaritas were awesome! I can't wait to go back next time I'm in Dallas.

    Nice food. Nice service. Only complaint is same as last time I visited this location: hostesses. Young, rude, clueless; they don't even bother thanking you as you leave the restaurant.

    One of the best meals we have had in a long time. The jalepenio margarita was amazing! Between the chicken nachos and the brisket tacos we couldn't decide which was tastier. Combine that with some friends, it was a perfect evening!

    I realize that what I write here will not affect anyone desire to go - or not to go - to this Mi Cocina in West Plano. Let me say, first, that I like Mi Cocina restaurants; actually, very much. That's why this location was such a disappointment. Food was fine and consistent with the other area Mi Cocina restaurants. The service? Non-existent. Waited FAR TOO LONG for someone to come to the table and when she did, was ready to take my order. No water or drinks. No chips and salsa. When I walked in, there were FIVE hostesses standing around and they acted like they could care less if I was there or not. That was abundantly clear when I left, and the same group couldn't be bothered to say "thank you" or "good night." VERY disappointed

    Queso they have 3 kinds. Doesn't matter what you ask for it's all the same. They NEVER listen. Been here 10 plus times and I swear it's like nobody hears you, listens to you, anything. Have to wait an eternity for drink refills, hostess is snotty, and waiters don't know the menu!

    I made reservations for 6 and they didnt have the table ready, so they stuck us at literally the first table they saw and ran around to grab chairs for it. The food was thrown on the table and we were never asked how we were doing or if we needed anything. EVen the water tasted like it came from the tap. The noise level was so loud that i couldnt hear my friends right next to me. For what i payed i expected more.

    Dined on 2/7/2014
    We've been regulars at the various Dallas and Plano "Mico's" for years. We are tex mex fanatics and always end up back at Mi Cocina due to the best margaritas in town and reliable food. The chips and salsa at Mi Cocina have never been our favorite (we prefer uncle Julio's or Pappasito's thinner chips and their salsa ) but we love the Mamas Tacos and Rico Salad with spicy blue cheese dressing. Shops of Legacy Mi Cocina has a great bar too and a patio as well.

    I made table reservations, but we ended up eating at the bar. It was fun to watch the bartender making all sorts of different margaritas! The food was delicious! I would totally go back if I was in the area again! My only complaint is parking was a bit of a pain-but there is a deck right down the street.

    We only had a party of 6 and were treated like we were special. Our request was for upstairs dining. The restaurant as a whole is loud, but eating upstairs is a different experience. Much quieter. The atmosphere is more relaxing and enjoyable up there. We keep going back to Mi Cocina because the food is excellent and the service is great. Always friendly and eager to serve. Mi Cocina is in a great location as well.
