Mi Luna has a rich history and tradition in Houston, Texas where it opened up in 1998 in Rice Village. It was created to satisfy the craving for "tapas" which are small savory Spanish dishes. The kitchen uses only fresh, local ingredients in its dishes to ensure the best flavors possible. In addition to the kitchen, Mi Luna has a full bar and an extensive wine list, including bottles and by the glass selections.



Start your meal at Mi Luna with a salad, such as the ensalada de mariscos, ensalada con sirloin de res a la parilla or frijoles negros y blancos. Larger items on the menu include marinated fresh Atlantic salmon, paella or make some memories with family and friends while enjoying a tapa platter and our handcrafted margaritas.

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The staff was beyond outstanding. The food, we shared The Platter, was such a great mix of everything. My husband and I are still talking about our great overall experience

Food was good but I did not appreciate the 10 for parking. One would think that you can park your vehicle without paying for parking.

You know the food is not fresh when cooked items come out of the kitchen 3 minutes after ordering. The food was very meh, I presume they are microwaving Sysco premade meals because some of the dishes were very dry inside (the pot pie.) The oxtail was tender but there was 2 forkfulls in a bowl of bones so I figure there is a pot in the back where the bottom is covered in the meat that fell off or this was someone else's leftovers. The live music was good, I will give the place that, but id you go for the music, eat ahead of time.

Good food and good service. We had a group of five including one veggie and seafood only eater. She had plenty of choices. The wine was very good and the drinks were too. All in all a good visit and we will likely return.

Smoked salmon appetizer was excellent. Chicken and potato plates were also tasty. The potato dish brought some appreciated hot spice. Small plate formats are rather generous. The wine list is limited but covers the basics fairly well. One might hope for an expanded Spanish selection. Location is excellent. Free 2 hour parking a short walk away is a plus. Noise level is high. The service was mediocre. The server appeared much busier than the restaurant. Bringing all the dishes at once will certainly leave some cold before we finish. Spilling wine on the table can usually be avoided.

Food and service were very good / excellent. The 1 problem here is that the live band was so loud you couldn't hear people at your own table. So don't go here if you want to have much of a conversation.

It was my first time dining at Mi Luna and I was impressed. Lots of energy and good drinks. Loved the group that was playing and loved how all the people were absolutely welcoming and organized. Took a bit long on the food but the service was great and it was definitely worth the wait.

Came for an early dinner for a family birthday and was well attended by several staff. Fantastic food and great drinks; happy to have plenty of paella for leftovers. Super friendly and attentive staff who even made a non-alcoholic fruit juice “sangria” for the teens. Flexible too - since we had a large group coming in and leaving and different times. Not our first time, and won’t be the last! :-)

The ceviche was SO yummy and drinks were good. Service was seriously lacking. We were sat at a table and it took a waiter about ten mins to get to us. Then later on in the night we moved to the bar and weren’t even acknowledged. When I finally managed to flag someone down he told me he couldn’t help me because he was not a bartender. Probably won’t be back unfortunately.

I really enjoyed my dinner with friends but I was a bit embarrassed because I had a groupon that was not honored. The server told me it was not valid on weekends but I haven't found anything on groupon that states that. I guess if anyone else is going with a groupon keep that in mind.

This place is phenomenal!! I'm recommending to all of my friends. Its my birthday month and i will be returning. The food, service and live music was great. The food reminded me of my dad's cooking, who's from Colombia. I enjoyed the oxtails and potatoes. They were cooked to perfection.

Thursday night band was good, very energetic atmosphere. Dancing started around 9pm.

A bit noisy to have a conversation.

Good food. We took our time ordering several tapas dishes and weren't rushed off.

Highly recommend this place.

I have heard that there is live music playing on special days. I will probably return for that but during this visit I would have liked to at least have background Spanish music. It would have made for a better experience. I came here to reminisce a personal experience living in Spain. Overall, pleasant experience. I want to try more things on the menu and hear live music, especially Spanish.
