I am torn because over a year ago we came here and it was wonderful, but I ordered the same dish (sea bass) and it was awful. The fish was cooked nicely but the sauce was watery and bland and the spinach was not seasoned and it just created a watery topping with a watery sauce, it was really unappetizing. What made it worse was our server was extremely inattentive and I waited and waited for her to tell her I was not happy. I actually had to flag down a different server. I told my husband to eat his food because it was getting cold waiting by the time I was able to give feedback. It was disappointing because we were there for an anniversary date. Don't think I will be back.

The service was a bit slow. The drink and food prices were on the high side but they did offer a free birthday desert which offset for this trip. The patio is a nice place to sit.

Went for birthday dinner tonight, all I can say is WOW! This is a fantastic restaurant. First off you have your choice of TexMex, Southwestern, or Mexican food. The owners have made a great decision to feature 3 different styles of Mexican cuisine and they made a great decision to have a few choices of each rather than bombarding the diner with huge choices of each. This was smart especially for the kitchen. They don’t have to have the ingredients and prepare a huge number of choices.

I’m a fan of Santa Fe style but went for the old standby of TexMex Tacos al Carbon and I have to say these are the best I’ve eaten in the Metroplex in my thirty years of living here. The meat was seasoned perfectly and cooked perfect as well. I substituted refried for charro beans and they were great.

Had the frozen house Margarita and it was exceptional. Be aware they pour 2 ounces of liquor in their drinks

Had Flan for dessert and it was spectacular. I highly recommend it.

Our server, Raul was attentive and I can’t say enough great things about him.

The only thing I would recommend to the owners is that they add POSOLE to the menu. I’m a sucker for great POSOLE and I’m sure they could come up with a great recipe for Santa Fe style POSOLE

I’ll definitely be back and I highly recommend you visit.

I feel like the food at Mi Dia is of good quality and sounds creative on the menu but reigned in on flavor. It stays middle-of-the-road, crowd-pleaser level and I get that that clientele is out there. I have visited several times and have found an order I like, the queso fundido, so that when others want to meet I have a regular order. The service was perfect...attentive but not bothersome and accommodating to requests. (I like my tortillas to remain on the side vs be made tableside into tacos.) It was dim and quiet enough for a date night. For my taste, the value isn't there. The food looks good in pictures and sounds good on the menu but lacks the flavor I'm looking for (think upscale hotel/conference food). As friends live in the area and are regulars, I'm sure I'll be back for my queso fundido.

We love your restaurant and food (yummy hatch tacos and Santa Fe dishes). The only criticism I have is the noise level is so great that you can hardly hear what your friend across the table is saying. Don’t know if there is anyway to insulate against that at this point.

Fathers Day brunch/lunch. We like to go because of the table side guac. Though the guacamole did not disappoint, service was very slow and it took over an hour to order/get food. Party beside us with more people came after us and got food way before us. Never had that happen before and it would not keep us from going back. We were there early and the restaurant was not crowded. There nearly two hours though which was an unusual amount of time. Had to ask for the check.

This is definitely an upscale Mexican restaurant. Most of the entrees were unrecognizable to us as we are not really 'foodies"so some of the schmancy cuisine was lost on us. Chris, our server, was excellent. Nice night so sat on patio because it was pretty "vibrant" inside and we wanted to visit with our host. Started with mango margarita and it's the best I've ever had. Smooth and refreshing with a spicy salt rim on glass. Had to have a second one just to confirm how good it was! Also had guacamole with bacon. Truly, prefer guacamole w/o bacon but it was good and plentiful. Chips excellent. Entree was not my style of tacos but by that time I was full from guacamole and chips anyway. Lovely restaurant. Not your neighborhood Tex Mez place tho but fun to go if someone else is buying.

Food was well executed, as were drinks. However concrete colors and stone walls and no noise mitigation makes for a painfully loud experience.
