The food at Mi Dia was very good as it is consistently. However on this occasion, service was slow and very inattentive. We had to literally shout at wait persons and bus persons passing by our table in order to get drink and chip refills. Our specific waitress just disappeared.

We felt like we didn’t exist in the eyes of the staff that night. I’m sure we’ll be back but this was very disappointing.

The best Mexican food in DFW, as far as I'm concerned. Also a good place for a myriad of tequilas.

The Mistletoe Martini was an excellent start! The tableside guacamole was outstanding. Nice choice of unusual Mexican food. I liked the variety of the menu. This was a birthday dinner for my daughter and she loved it. Would definitely go back and recommend to my friends.

the food is outstanding. you better like it spicy. The only thing they need to fix are booths. I have never been to restaurant with more uncomfortable booths. we would come more often if the seating was more comfortable. You can only get seated at a table with a large party.

I had carne asada which was really fatty...tough to eat. Husband’s flautas were tasteless. Had two margaritas and they were both lacking in tequila. Probably won’t go back.

We had been to Mi Dia's previously and has never disappointed. Their table side guacamole is great and provides a good-sized appetizer for four hungry adults. They have a wide variety of inventive cocktails. I loved the Baja Shrimp Tacos. Their main dishes are generous and the quality of excellent. The service is attentive but not too much. The energy level is high, the place is a bit noisy but you can still have a conversation.

We hosted out-of-town guests. Experiencing Santa Fe cuisine in Tex Mex country is always a special surprise for guests. And, Gabriel’s red and green chile is always a big winner.

The food was absolutely delicious. I came here with some coworkers and the happy hour special was great to have as well. A little bit pricier than expected for entrees, but still very reasonable for the quality of the food.

The food was incredible! Some of the best I've had. Drinks were incredible too. The place is loud, very loud, but it really seems to be more energetic than anything. Service is somewhat slow, but it didn't take away from the experience.

Mi Dia is one of our "go to" places. We spend three to four months each year at our home in Northern New Mexico and, historically, have missed enjoying Northern New Mexico cuisine. We were elated when Gabriel opened Mi Dia in Plano. His "Santa Fe" recipes hit a high note for us. Ambiance is also spectacular, so Mi Dia has also become our top selection as a place to entertain guests.

Lack of consistency is my idea of Mi Dia, my poached eggs were not poached they were hard not running. 3 out of 3 . Chef needs to be more careful. There are many dishes that I love, but Eggs must be basic

Food was absolutely delicious. I had the flank steak with chili relleno & hubby had the chicken and mashed potatoes. His meal was better but only by a small margin. My only 2 notes would be on the signature drink and guacamole. Signature drink I took a few sips and didn’t care for it. Usually they ask how you like things and offer to get you something else if you don’t like it. Not the case here. Guacamole while fresh was bland. We did have to ask twice for salsa refill and water but the food more than made up for those two things. It was a busy Saturday night so service tends to lag in those cases. Overall we loved our food and will go back.

I have been to two locations over 3 years apart & Mi Dia is great. Plano is quite loud but the food is outstanding. Duck Sope is so delicious. Hell Freezes Over was my drink (I'm not a love spicy person) you can handle it though and it was great. The table side quac has tons of options. Street corn side was fantastic. There were three other people in my party and each person was truly satisfied with their dishes respectively.

Food and service were excellent for our large-ish group. It was a little loud, but not enough to be a problem. My relleno divorciado was excellent, and others raved over the duck carnitas.

My friend raves about it, but just okay. Much better out there even Chuys. Queso fundido and guacamole were solid. The fajitas are better at chilis. Parking also a pain.
