Came for the family style brunch! So much food! All super tasty! Great deal, well worth the money!
Great. End of story.
really delicious food - exceeded our expectations. elevated mexicain fare without being too over the top high end.
Some people in our party must follow a strict gluten-free diet. They had many choices on the menu, loved their food, and felt healthy after the meal. The waiter showed particular care in communicating with the kitchen about our order. I should also note that the leftovers from the generous portions were delicious the next day. Recommended!
Beautiful restaurant with great views of the wharf. The table service was good and seemed efficient, but my main course arrived a bit cold, which was disappointing. The deviled eggs and orange enchiladas were delicious starters but the chilaquiles were not. The chips are heavy and absorb all the sauce and flavoring. They are piled on a thick slab of ham that has no flavoring, and an egg omelette is served on top with no sauce or flavoring. The server brought us three sauces at our request - but they were cold as well. If the eggs had been hot, the sauces might've improved the dish. But the chilaquiles are just heavy comfort food that are served with two ingredients, ham and eggs, that are not cohesive elements of the dish. I am still surprised that such a nice restaurant with a lot of staff especially at 11 am before all the tables were full could not bring the food to the table before it started to get cold.
If you are a Mexican looking for real Mexican food in DC, this is one of the best options!!!
Wonderful experience! Server was awesome, margaritas delicious, food very tasty. Great location.
Like most places at The Wharf, the space is beautiful, the food is okay, and the prices are high for what you get. Certainly can find better drinks and food elsewhere in the city, but this is a fine option if you need to be at The Wharf. Just don't expect to exactly be wowed by anything besides the decor and your bill.
Great food and service. Would recommend to everyone.
What a great dinner! Everything, from the food and drinks to the attention we received from our server, the manager, etc., was perfect! You can tell that everyone there is dedicated to making sure that you have a wonderful dining experience.
Over priced, crappy service, good food. Customer service should be valued as much as the ingredients.
If you have gluten sensitivities, be careful. The menu marks which dishes have gluten (the opposite of most places). But the waiter can help you navigate if need be. Really good food and I would definitely go back.
The greeters are always gracious, service is always excellent and the food terrific. The variety of menu choices offers something for every taste and I have never been disappointed for myself or my guests. It is my “go to” place for showing offThe Wharf especially to out of town guests
First night in DC made reservations based on TripAdvisor rating and was so good that we are eating there again for our last night as well! Highly recommend!
We celebrated our 46th anniversary. The view, the food and the service were absolutely fantastic. Thank you for the experience!
It was good. Seriously. Great drinks. Great food. You will experience Mexican food and culture in a new way.
Door personnel are very dismissive and on their cell phones. Asked fir a table in first level and they refused and walked us up to the next level. This is our 5 time there and the food is mediocre. The caritas were greasy and the tortillas soggy. The fish tacos were incredibly spicy hot.
We go because our friends like to meet there but it truly is always a mediocre experience.
We love the food, the location, the service, and the price!
Dining before walk to watch Nationals clinch NLCS!!
Great meal, great setting
Great place!!! Delicious food!!!
We went for a birthday dinner. The restaurant is beautifully decorated though I felt the lighting was to dim, especially in the women's bathroom. We had a 4:00 Sunday reservation but arrived early and were seated right away. Our drink and appetizer orders were taken quickly. We ordered the Queso Funido appetizer which were not as flavorful as others we had elsewhere. The salsa versa with it made it much better. For dinner we ordered the suizas enchilada, Polo Chilango and Mole Enchilada Beef. The dinner meals were delicious. Will be going back
Had to wait over 10 minutes to be seated with a reservation and there were several seats around. Service was extremely slow. The menue was very limited and the food was average. Sat outside on balcony all of the heat lamps except the one by my table worked. We were very dissatisfied at the end of the meal
While the food was delicious, the increase in price for a side of beans with the tacos was disappointing. No one at my table wanted or ate the beans. There should be an option to order the tacos without the beans.
Mi Vida never stops to surprise me in terms of both food, service, and the ambiance. They changed their menu since I was here last time and I was pleasantly surprised at their new creations. Cocktails are always awesome, the wine selection is great even for a wine connoisseur like me who is never happy with wine selections (but these are great), and food is out of this world. Highly recommend!
Mi Vida is my go-to restaurant for introducing people to The Wharf. The staff is excellent as is the food.
It is authentic Mexican food - it a place that wants to be trendy - i will try it again
Went there for brunch with a friend. Menu for brunch options was a bit limited, but you were able to order from the main menu. I had Enchiladas Suzie. It was good, but not exceptional. Could have used more flavor. Roasted veggies as a side dish were lovely. Cocktails/mocktails were also good and staff was nice. I didn’t try the mole to see how authentic it is. I would say if you are looking for very authentic Mexican food, you might want to try somewhere else. If you are looking for location and ambiance either for friends’ get-together, date, and maybe business with some great drinks and don’t mind the price then check the restaurant.
Very good guacamole and chips, good tacos, great margaritas. Very good service. We ate outside which was pleasant. Overall, a good experience, but a little pricey for pretty simple food.
Nice views, parts of restaurant itself were very attractive, others not so. Service was pleasant & attentive. Temperature was poorly set inside. Despite their best efforts, it was freezing. Food a bit above average.
Restaurant staff were responsive - we arrived early for our reservation, but were seated anyway which we appreciated on a hot day. However, I can't say that we enjoyed our food - for one think it was luke warm at best - suspect it was sitting out for a while before being served. I am a huge fan of huevos rancheros, but this was honestly the worst version I've ever had. Sadly we won't return.
Nice place, great location. Food was very good. Very nice waitress. I gave it a 4 star, food portions were on the small side.
Server was fantastic and the food and drinks were actually all great. I did the family style brunch and every item was worth it!
Awesome place. Loved the fresh food !
Our waiter was excellent. I wish I remembered his name..but he definitely added a flare to my birthday celebration.
Coming from Mexico City, I have got to congratulate Mi Vida's Chef Santibanez for having a menu and preparation of dishes perfectly aligned with authentic Mexican recipes and ingredients. Also the assortment of Tequilas and Mezcales is outstanding. Keep up the good work.
Great service, food is well prepared, drinks are phenomenal. Extremely soothing after a week of work to eat outside with breathtaking views of the waterfront. The team at Mi Vida knows how to treat its customers.
Overall great experience. The guacamole was amazing! The customer service was above and beyond my expectation!
Food, bar, atmosphere were all wonderful! Very reasonable & fun! Would definitely go again.
