Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
Mi Vida will be open 12-830pm and serving the dinner menu all day along with fantastic Thanksgiving Day additions to the menu.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was stellar. It's a little pricey, but you know it's worth it when you taste it. Can not recommend this place enough!
Great location with multiple outdoor spaces (2nd floor is great for sunset). Approachable, upscale Mexican food and drinks. Beverages come in glassware and the bathrooms are automated (simple pleasures during COVID). Solid HH, too.
Hard to find a place these days that actually has the space to keep 6 ft apart even with every other table is being not used.
Menu changes every 6 months or so, so the breath taking meal I previously enjoyed at this place last year, was gone. The entrees that took it's place werent disappointing either, but having whatever that dish was before, would have been the bees knees.
Either way, great service and good food. Prices definitely reflect the location, but with that being said, cost is pretty much what we expected in this setting. Recommend for special occasions or if you got the money to frequent this place.
Food came out ASAP and was delicious.
Another excellent experience at Mi Vida! Plenty of outdoor seating was available, sat on the upstairs balcony with a great view. The service and food were outstanding as well, had guacamole for the app, then had the baby back ribs and squash side, wife had the Branzino filet, both were delicious. Highly recommend this spot if you’re in The Wharf area of DC. It was crowded on The Wharf, but 90% wore masks.
Food and service outstanding. Best queso I’ve ever had. Service was attentive but never felt rushed. Will definitely return. Thank you!!
We sat outside on the third floor balcony with a beautiful view of the harbor. I have generally avoided the wharf area in the past because it gets so crowded but Mi Vida was very relaxing (probably about 25% capacity). The food & drinks were good - we were able to take advantage of happy hour specials - and the service was very friendly while maintaining all of the COVID requirements. Will definitely go back again.
Excellent as usual, a bit pricey but totally worth it!
Great mexican food, margheritas, and reasonably priced at the wharf!
Our seever was A1. Her section was dry and we could tell that her tables were no fun at all but she kept her poker face. I hope she see's this. We will be back
This was our first visit, and it won't be our last. Wonderful food and ambiance. We were seated on the outdoor balcony which was the best! All dishes were raved about by our party of 4.
Best Mexican food I had in a long time. Very romantic setting
Anniversary you guys did a great job
Service, awesome as usual! The place and view is soooo beautiful. My only complaint is that they eliminated the “Chamorro” which was the most spectacular item they had and the reason I kept coming back. Their guacamole is still “out of the park” Love it!
Great service and great view from the balcony, we were the only family there and felt very covid safe!
We went for a lunch anniversary date. Exceptional meal and the margaritas were perfect. It was a bit windy but otherwise was a perfect afternoon. We’ll be back
Food is amazing. Must order Empanadas De Mariscos . Will definitely be going back. Ambiance is nice inside and outdoors seating is beautiful at night.
The ambiance at Mi Vida was amazing. My husband, who is not a huge fan of Mexican or Spanish fare, gave Mi Vida a chance...and LOVED it. We ate every bite. We sat on the balcony overlooking the water, the view was incredible! Oh, and HANDS DOWN the best Churros on the east coast!
Birthday dinner. The food was amazing! Our waiter, Nester was excellent! We will definitely be back!
I was excited to come to DC and experience some Mexican food . Me being Mexican and after reading the reviews was expecting nothing but good /traditional Mexican food . What a disappointment!!!!!! The enchiladas de mole were horrible , the tortillas were too thick and the filling /carne was cold and dry, the enchiladas suizas tortillas were also HORRIBLE....We Mexicans know better that the tortilla is the main component not to mess with when making enchiladas ! Please google how to make a traditional Michelada and POR EL AMOR DE DIOS either make a good 3 Leches or just take it out of the menu (Sponge cake soaked in three kinds of milk :evaporated,condensed and heavy ).
The one good thing about our experience was the service ... Thanks Miguel for your great customer service!!!
This was a perfect choice. The food was gastronomically delicious, the drinks were intoxicating and the service was phenomenal.
I had a great time and the server was phenomenal. Would recommend!
First time dining at Mi Vida, made reservations ahead of time. The staff was friendly and super helpful. We got to sit outside on the upper balcony and the views were amazing! Service was quick and attentive even with the covid procedures and the food arrived quickly and tasted great. I would say this is a great place to catch up with friends or meet people for drinks.
We had a great dining experience at Mi Vida. The location was outstanding, the ambience was ideal and the food was probably the best mexican food we've had since Mexico. We will certainly return.
Beautiful service, ambiance and amazing food!
Everything was Amazing!
The food and margaritas were absolutely amazing! My friends and I are already planning our next visit!
I had an amazing time. The food was great and the drinks were fantastic. I will definitely be back again.
Great service and food! Can’t beat the view and location
Great ambiance. Good food. Good drinks. Nice patio with view of the water
Really great food, view and service. The place is owesome
It was a great dining experience as always. I will be back again for sure.
View was great, but the waiter was a bit rude, I guess since the 20%tip is now automatically given to them they feel like they don’t need to be nice. Also the requirement that everyone in your party HAVE to buy an entree is a bit absurd. Like am already buying a lot of drinks and appetizers.. And to think that they will deny you service if you don’t buy an entree
It was my birthday and my second time dining out since the pandemic my sister and I had such a wonderful time. Danny V was our server and his service was excellent & outstanding. It was a very fun night out
It was grest
Great food. Husband is celiac so there was lots he could eat there. Love that they mark food items that have gluten in them!
We had a great date night away from our newborn! We appreciated the service, especially when our server taught us about mole before ordering it.
I've been here several times and it never disappoints. The food, service and ambience were all fantastic. They have also gone the extra mile to make sure all COVID safety precautions are met. I highly recommend them.
Food good, but you are paying for the atmosphere. Service is excellent.
