Excellent restaurant and the the patio is fantastic! Will definitely go back!
Have some friends over for lunch visiting from Mexico!!! We seat the the patio enjoy the nice weather and the view of the warf.
We start with some guacamole and queso fundido, absolutely delicious, I got the steak salad, very tender and the amount of dressing was just perfect.
My friends got salmon and some pipil tacos! We all enjoy ourselves. Our waiter very on point and polite.
Definitely I coming back! Thanks for great experience.
Great experience. We had reservations and were seated right away. Food and service were excellent and the views were amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant!
Food was not particularly memorable and made less appetizing because plates sat too long under the heat lamp causing a drying sauce skin in the presentation.
Great margaritas and pescado tacos
The service and the food was good! I usually get a shrimp dish that is no longer on the menu but I was told it would be returning.
It’s always a vibe! From top to bottom!!
I'm always surprised when Mexican food is priced this high and the restaurant charges you for chips and salsa. I don't mind paying for great food but this was only fair. Perhaps if you have appropriate expectations, you might have a better experience. Do not expect real Mexican or Tex-Mex. It's sort of a Mexican base but it feels like they are trying too hard with the flavors. It tastes nothing like abuela makes at home for family gatherings Salsa and enchilada sauce were too tangy. The pork tacos were fine but also had a weird tang and nothing worth coming back for. The desserts sounded good but were disappointing.
My search for good Mexican in DMV continues.
Great food and we had amazing service! Lovely location on the marina.
i thought the experience was amazing. the food, service, and overall vibe was amazing.
Excellent food in a lively atmosphere!
Excellent authentic style Mexican! I only wish that they had chips and salsa, though we ordered the queso fundido and it was some of the best I’ve had.
Great food, location and service. Billy was great and suggested great drinks on the menu. Definitely will be back again!!!!
Nice day date
Great food, drinks and vibe. Sat upstairs with a great view of the water just before sunset. Would definitely eat here again. A great date spot or fun small group place.
Food was good and did a decent job of living up to the higher prices. The guacamole and house margaritas was delicious (maybe the margaritas were too delicious), and the mole sauce that came with my ribs blew me away.
The service was outstanding and the food was great. I was impressed.
This was my third time at Mi Vida and I can definitely now say it’s solid. My friend and I ordered vegetarian and vegan this time and everything was amazing - guac (with toppings), enchiladas rancheros, and the vegetables tacos. All the food leans toward the authentic style Mexican side. It’s a good date night or drinks/before going out type of spot - the decor is pretty trendy and stylish, it gets dark, and a bit on the loud side but it’s a good vibe, very fun.
Seated on second floor, overlooking the river. Excellent seats. Very good server had great recommendations for drinks and food.
We ate slowly as we talked, so food was brought when needed, not piled up when the kitchen wanted to give it to us.
Like everything on the Wharf, this place is designed to fleece tourists. Food was just ok, nothing really stood out. Cocktails were kind of watered down. Servings are kind’ve small and the prices are about 30% too high. Extremely loud.
Delicious food. Gorgeous food. Would definitely recommend!
Extremely loud inside - had to yell at guests across from me. Had requested water view seating as this was an anniversary celebration-were not seated directly next to windows which was also disappointing. Service by waiter and food was outstanding
Great food and service! Stephen was great!
I took my mom there for her birthday thinking that we will have a great time at Mi Vida’s restaurant but not. They took so long between the appetizer and the main course. Then the food arrived cold and dry, we asked for a new hot plate and the beef arrived hard and over cooked when we have ordered medium rare. My mom ordered a margarita and it wasn’t good either. Then to close the night we waited around 30min for a happy birthday dessert. We thought that maybe they will be making something wow and we got a super dry brownie with a bad shape ball of whipped cream in a really bad presentation. I feel bad because we couldn’t enjoy the dinner for her birthday. I choose that restaurant because it has a great environment and beautiful location for a birthday celebration but We definitely won’t be back again.. sorry
It’s money better spent elsewhere. Food was luke warm, frozen margarita was mango flavored (with no option given for a regular one!), but the citrus cake was good.
Great setting outside with view of the water which was a highlight. Service was good and attentive. However the food itself was just very average and overpriced for what it was. We had fish tacos and a quesadilla. Not inspiring. Might consider going back for drinks but not food.
Great food. Magnificent service. Fair price.
Frozen margarita good. Soup of the day gazpacho too spicy and no other flavors. Butterfly sea bass very good but lamb shank very underwhelming. Churros too crispy and what was left inside doughy.
Great food and laid back vibe
Good spot at the wharf.
Nice night out! Parking -- even in the garage was difficult and expensive but it was nice once I got above ground!
Great food, great service
Food here is consistently good. No easy feat in these uncertain times. And the restaurant itself is tasefully decorated to reflect the beauty of Mexican cuisine and culture.
Great atmosphere and food. Great outside spot for lunch.
I love this place and eat lunch there all the time. superior Mexican food and drinks.
Upstairs balcony is fantastic for a nice cool summer lunch. Margaritas are equally great.
Food was great and our waiter was really nice and recommended great drinks and desserts.
Good food, although quite different than most mexican places I've eaten. For example, not chips/sales served. I ordered cheese dip as appitizer but it came with tortilla rather than chips. They did bring me chips upon request.
Also, my entre was carne asada, which was great. It was very different in that in came in a red mushroom cream sauce (very "Italian") but quite good. Also, the entres are very ala carte, so I had to order rice and beans.
Margaritas and tacos were both great! Patio ambiance was lovely.
Amazing food. Amazing cocktails. Amazing staff.
