Fine dining, rooted in PuertoRicoWe were very impressed with the excellent food -- Mahi Mahi with yucca mofongo, and a veal entree... Tostones app was great too. This is unique cuisine that takes the best of PR and dresses it up alot -- probably fancier and better than most food on the isla, and a bit more expensive, but WELL WORTH IT !5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday @ MioMio is very good, I've been there a couple of times with friends. This past Friday I took a friend of mine from Korea to taste latin cuisine; Puerto Rican to be more specific. Service was great and the environment was friendly.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious. ForThe food was delicious. For me, the difficult part was finding something light and healthy. not great for the waistline, but great for the tongue!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Discovery - Don't tellTook a friend for birthday dinner.
He complained that the tostones had been re-heated.
I had Mahi Mahi and a salad. Both were great. Salad was a perfect balance of acid, fruit flavor and greens. The fish was exceptionally good.
The mojito was the best in this town. Having a Cubano behind the bar was the reason for this rush of flavor. The tres leches made me jealous that I can never make it like this.
Moist, flavorful cake without a drip.
I would like to try the outside al fresco when the weather warms a bit more.
They have a great Malbec and not served too warm as is the case with a lot of DC restaurants. They know not to store it in the kitchen.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated my daughters 15thCelebrated my daughters 15th birthday at Mio and it was great!

How do you say "yum" in Spanish? Muy bien!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMtop notch business lunchMio was a great surprise. We have been to Lincoln next door several times and enjoy the food and decor, but always find it just a touch pretentious. Mio looks like it would be like that too, but is just spot on elegant and enjoyable. The food options were plentiful and the skirt steak salad was one of the best meals I've had in months.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat table; service was terrific.Great table; service was terrific.

We loved the decor, the atmosphere, the energy of the kitchen behind us, the good service, and excellent food. Everyone at our table of seven raved about their meal - their speciality is the mofongo, traditional puerto rican dish. the guava cheesecake was a great way to end the meal. We will definitely come back.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy out of town guests, whoMy out of town guests, who were new to Mio, raved about the food, the grilled steak, and the lechon asado, and rice and beans.
