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.
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.
Moving out of DC after 5 years. Good bye dinner
Took my sister to Mi Vida for her birthday. The food and service were great. I especially appreciated the host who was so kind when some rando cut in front of us. The waiter offered recommendations from the appetizers to desserts to cocktails, and all were excellent. Thank you Mi Vida for an excellent night!
Amazing food, good service, nice ambiance. Prices way too high though.
A+ cuisine!!! Drinks and food was amazing. Will definitely dine here in the future!!!
Overall my whole experience was good. We were promptly seated, how food arrived fast and was delicious. I had the La Frozen margarita and the Mez Skull, vegetales tacos, sweet potato fries and we ordered chips and guac. My friend had the branzino with black beans. Our food was delicious and the staff was attentive.
My only complaint was the automatic adding of gratuity to the check. When I arrived I could've sworn the hostess said that 10% gratuity would be added but when we got our check it was 20%. I could've misheard her so I didn't mention it to the manager plus I understand how the restaurant industry has been impacted by the pandemic. I just thought it odd to automatically add gratuity to a party of 2.
I'll definitely make this one of my go-to restaurants.
Everything was fab!
The seafood options are delicious. Interesting flavors and nothing is “too much”.
Everything was wonderful..except steak tacos...over done and dry:(
Excellent food and service all around. They were very accommodating as one member of our party was running late and they gave us the time and space to wait for that person to arrive. Loved the ambience and view. Will definitely be back next time we are in the area.
Waiter was terrible I would go back with hopes of another waiter because the food was awesome
Food was good. Drinks was good. Their 2 hour limit was a bummer and would have been good if that was communicated during reservation as for a large party that wasn't adequate. And the countdown reminders every few minutes 30 minutes to the time felt like we're being rushed out. That put a damper on an otherwise good night.
Another slam dunk.
It was wonderful and the food was fantastic
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.
Host was a bit rude, but server was great as was the family meal deal
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.
Mediocre service and sub par food, especially for the amount you are paying.
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!
Excelente servicio. Leo el mesero fue espectacular
A very good place to eat. Very good food. Enjoyed my time
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!
