Love the location and the view over the Potomac! Just a little pricey.
The tres leches cake is out of this world delicious... you should absolutely try it
Amazing - food quality, service, view... could not say enough nice things. It is expensive but you get what you pay for! I’m also gluten free, and most of their food is safe.
Our server was amazing; extremely personable and [just the right amount of] attentive! The whole server team in general was great! They all played a part in being attentive and making sure that our party was accommodated at all times. The food was great overall, and I will plan to dine at Mi Vida again in the near future.
Waitress was rude as well as the hostesses. Never again! Place is whack!
we had the family style for lunch - it was a great sample of a lot of the menu!
A very good place to eat. Very good food. Enjoyed my time
Excelente servicio. Leo el mesero fue espectacular
Amazing! Went here for my anniversary and it was beautiful. We sat outside and it was perfect. Will definitely be back again! Carne Asada was delicious!
Food was amazing, staff was awesome and the day was beautiful! My wife took me to Mi Vida for the first time and I loved it!! The drinks were also yummy! Good options for vegetarians and vegans!
Some of the best food I’ve ever had. Been to the nearby Del Mar which is WAY more expensive but the food at Mi Vida is better.
The food and staff were amazing! Thanks for making the birthday amazing!
Took my wife and daughter out to dinner while on our vacation to DC. We dressed it up for a classy evening in a wonderful place - Mi Vida.
Great food and ambiance. I recommend a table on the third floor by the window
Nice restaurant with good food. Manager was a bit rude telling all the guests to eat, drink and be out within two hours.
Amazing view on the Terrace. Food and drinks were amazing. Bathrooms needed attention but overall, I’ll be back.
Great appetizers. Guac was just ok. The lola drink was very refreshing.
Great food & Service! The only thing to consider is street parking is hard to find. The garages are a little expensive.
Wasn’t a fan of the chicken, but everything else was good.
First time sitting outside at a restaurant since the “before times”. Enjoyable experience, food good but not a lot on the plate.
Excellent meal. Food was amazing and service was great. All of us loved our dishes. Ate on the patio and had a great view
Fantastic food with equivalent drink options. Very creative menu with fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection time after time! I've never been disappointed by anything I've chosen.
Service is equally wonderful. Waiters know the menu in detail and can make suggestions you'll thank them for. Very friendly and attentive.
Both lunch and dinner options are the best I've seen in DC . I'm looking forward to my next visit.
Service was perfect....Cocktails Amazing !! Food the best in its category in DC!!!
Great view. Great company. Great service. Very happy with my first dinner during Washington DC visit.
This was a wonderful experience. The food was amazing and great service and ambiance. I had vegetarian tacos, while others in the part were heavy on meat selections. All was wonderful! Highly suggest this place for a wonderful meal.
Great food, seasoned perfectly, great service, waiter was knowledgeable of food and drinks. Would definitely recommend.
Gave us an amazing balcony table for our reservation!
Got the family dinner style for 2 people. We were thrilled with the food and the value but I was too much for two and definitely for more 3 or 4 people. We were celebrating getting married so we were happy to try so many things. Service was welcoming and no intrusive to our evening.
Had such a great lunch date with my partner! A nice quiet Tuesday afternoon with a great view of the warf! The food was outstanding! I had the empanadas (a must). Along with plantain and rice and beans! The service was great. And for get your wallet!! You can tap to pay! If your not a local there are quite a few hotels in walking distance from this gem!
Very nice staff. There are a few vegetarian items, but would like for there to be more.
The 2nd level seating offers a nice view.
They have a bouncer at the front door of a Mexican restaurant! Even though we had a reservation, the guy was beyond rude. Manager could care less when brought to his attention.
The restaurant was fantastic. Staff VERY attentive and food great. Drinks were great also. I’m not a tequila drinker and they made an Old Fashioned for me. It wasn’t a problem. The only issue was the noise. Music was loud and another table was enjoying themselves so much it made it difficult to hold a conversation.
Great service. Wonderful outdoor deck even when a big chilly outside since it’s covered.
This was our first time at Mi Vida. My sister and I were celebrating our other sister’s birthday. One sister had never seen the cherry blossoms as she lives out of town and had come up for the Birthday so we thought mi Vida would afford somewhat of a view, which it did. Oddly all the tables that would have had the best views on the top floor where we were were kept empty because of covid and the less optimal tables were open. Waitperson would not make a change; likely he couldn’t but he just didn’t seem interested in helping—or smiling. Also, our reservation was at 11:30, which happens to be when they open. We arrived about 15 mins early as we tried to time our arrival to be on time given heavy cherry blossom traffic coming across the bridge from Virginia. Anyway, it was very cold, gray and windy, but they wouldn’t let us wait inside the door. In fact they were a couple minutes late opening knowing we’d been out in the wind and cold for 15 minutes. Again, the woman who came to the door was a bit dismissive and not very friendly when she told us we’d have to wait outside. It was odd, because the people who answered the phone were very friendly. The food was wonderful, though; I just wish the waiters and Front desk person had been nicer. It definitely took some pleasure off the experience.
Great experience - food was great and the service was perfect.
Mi vida is one of my most fave place in DC. Everyone we bring over loves the ambiance and food, a big s/o to our server who accommodated a special request for a friend with her dinner, I don't know his name but this was the second time we got him as a server and he never dissapoints.
Awesome food with great service! Try the mole, best in the area.
The food taste phenomenal and reminds me of five star restaurants of Zona Rosa in Mexico City. Request for outdoor seating to get magnificent Potomac river view.
Nice view and food.
Casual dining by the water
Visited Mi Vida for my birthday last night! It was such a wonderful experience - the food was excellent and our server Orlando was wonderful. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience!
