Loved the booth seats near courtyard windows.
Was pleasantly surprised by the treat at the end of the meal for the person whose birthday we were celebrating that evening. The free sopapillas did not cost the restaurant much ... but the giving of this dessert and its presentation did a great deal to boost the customer's positive response to and appreciation for the effort by the restaurant.

The place very pretty and decor was very upscale, but the server was rude as if they were doing us a favor. From the front desk to the waitress. It went like this; 1) Walked in -No response from the greeter I had to say how many to dine. 2) A person grabbed menus and walked away, we had to follow like puppy dogs. 3) Menus are placed on table; no verbal...We sit, Open menus. 4) Waitress comes over; "you ready to order? - gets an attitude when we need some time. Acted like she had better things to do. Maybe she was relative to the owner. Will not go back.

Mi DIa is a very hot spot and I enjoy it every time. Last week I had a business lunch and made a reservation, because I know they are very busy for lunch. Unfortunately, even with the reservation we had to wait 20 minutes, which was embarrassing for me, as I was meeting important customers. To make matters worse, the waiting area can only fit about 3 people, so we had to stand in front of some other customers' table, which I am sure was not pleasant for them.
Everything else about the restaurant is great - food is excellent, prices are just right, service is impeccable.

The BEST Mexican food I have had in the DFW area. The Santa Fe portion on the menu is delicious - the chiles they use are legit and it's better than some of the red and green chiles I have had in New Mexico.

From the first taste of the fresh and unique salsas, the quality and attitude of the food at Mi Dia from scratch is pronounced. The menu is an expedition that takes you from Texas to Santa Fe and into the interior of Old Mexico with ingredients like chayote, mole, and duck. We were glad we took the server's suggestion, "We have terrific TexMex, but you can get that anywhere. Try something from the rest of the menu."

From the food to the service to the environment, we were totally taken with Mi Dia from scratch, and are looking forward to trying more new flavors on our next visit.

I tried to get a vodka cocktail and there was some concern with the waiter that I might not be able to get it. I was granted "an exception" so I will have to keep this in mind next time. I just dont drink tequila right now! Love the salsa, love the chips, love the chicken tinga tacos. Tableside guac is great too but a little pricey.

My title, that isn't being cute. The guacamole at Mi Dia from Scratch is the best anywhere I've ever been and that is a lot of places across the globe. They prepare table side on a little trolley with loads of add-ins for you to choose from. My recommendation - if nothing else, add bacon. Everything on the menu is terrific including the chili relleno, duck tacos and stacked enchiladas. Is three times in one week too much?

After hearing some great reviews of this restaurant we gave it a try on a Saturday afternoon for lunch - as we know this place gets quite crowded for weekend dinners. The margaritas are phenomenal! I tried the pineapple infused tequila margarita which was excellent. Not too sweet and not too much tequila, but not weak either. Try the table side guacamole with bacon. Awesome. The food was really well prepared with great flavor. We were stuffed by the time the meal was over.

If you are flying into DFW and have a car available and want a really great TexMex meal (with New Mexico overtones.... Hatch Chilies to start) then head to Main Street Grapevine and Mi Dia From Scratch.... its just off the highway and easy to find... and be sure to have the guacamole cart! you won't be disappointed

I found this restaurant last minute, so we took a small group there for lunch. The service was very good and all the wait staff came by with a smile. The tableside guac service is awesome!! The tortilla soup was a little more like a chip stew, but the flavors were good. The tacos were super tasty. We'd go again if we lived in town!

We live in Richardson, but we'll make the drive out to Grapevine for this gem.
The salsa is great-- a mix of a few varieties in one bowl, very inventive. Table side guacamole is delicious. They use serrano peppers instead of jalapeno; the heat is addictive. :)
You won't be disappointed in the menu- I highly recommend the beef fajitas.
We never manage to save enough room for dessert, but maybe we'll try it out on our next visit.
As for the margaritas- I'd suggest house; the difference of the upper-tier options aren't worthy of the extra cost, in my opinion. They make a mean house marg.
Reservations highly suggested for weekend dinner.
Enjoy!

Excellent food, you can really tell it is made fresh and not just put together from precooked stuff when you order like most Mexican restaurants. Service was great, our waiter Zander was very attentive without being a bother. Would have been 5 full stars if there was a dessert option that I had liked.

I tried Mi Dia for the first time, and it was fantastic! The food was delicious, the salsa was superb, and the atmosphere was elegant yet fun. The service wasn't "great", but I'm 17 years old, so I never really expect great service when I go out to eat. Overall, it was amazing, and I would recommend it to anybody that can afford it!

We sat at the bar and our bartenders were wonderful. Very informative about the menu and their drinks. Was able to make recommendations with confidence and immediately. I ordered the Heat of the Desert margarita and it was spicy and tasty. The ceviche appetizer was delicious. The steak and relleno entree was delicious and also very tasty. My husband ordered the relleno huataloche (sp) and this also was a flavorful vegetarian dish. Flan was perfect. Loved being able to see and watch the kitchen at work from the bar area. Chef was very involved with every dish that came out of the kitchen. Impressive.

The food here is quite good and I could see that if you were served by a good wait person you might really like this place. Unfortunately, our service wasn't great. We had 9:30 reservations (we made reservations through open table, it was NOT the last reservation available) the first thing we were told when we were seated was that the kitchen would be closing in :15 - so we had to hurry up. Well, why have a 9:30 reservation available if you don't really want folks at 9:30? Our drink order came incorrectly (no salt on the margarita came with salt, no lime for the beer, came with lime in the beer). Then, our waiter disappeared for 10 minutes while we waited with menu's closed, wondering if we shouldn't have just gone across the street?

Good food. But it was Labor day weekend (Sunday night) and our server said they had a lot of staff call-ins so they were short-handed SO the service was inattentive for the $ you pay for this type of restaurant. We ended up having to retrieve our drinks from the bar because no one to serve us. We had late reservations, but hostesses were still dazed and confused. One actually pointed to our table to go ahead and head over there. I hurried to the table before my wife had a chance to "reply". But stuff likes this can happen, so we'll try again on a non-holiday weekend and give it a another shot. It is a neighborhood restaurant.

Went at 8:30 pm on Sunday, Labor Day weekend, with family of four. Many empty tables, but a queue for seating. Sopes, Pato a la Parilla, Shrimp Brochette, and Cochinita Pibil were truly DIVINE. Overall experience was absolutely MISERABLE, due to inattentive and even inept service. Server able to talk endlessly about from where the chef drew inspiration for various menu sections and from where the ingredients of each dish were sourced; however, we had LONG delays for food and drink, and bill had to recalculated twice (at my insistence) to remove double charges. Also detracting from excellent food was the ambiance: a pathetic attempt to create "urban" vibe in downtown Grapevine, from glitzy bar (also terrible service) to stark decor.
