We had a wonderful experience at Mi Vida! The food was delicious and the service was to notch. We will definitely be back!
The drinks were phenomenal and the food serving size was surly large. Liked the ambiance. The bathroom was very cool!
Family style option is a lot of food and delicious!
My family loved the ambience and the food was excellent, and a value as well! Would definitely recommend!
Ok. Food nothing special Very limited menu- could use more vegetarian options
Friendly and helpful staff!
The food was excellent, we had the nachos appetizer which could have served up to 4 or 5 people easily. We were almost full so we chose to share one entree of the beef enchilladas . Nice sauce
Was amazing as always, and our server Leo was exceptional! The third time I’ve gotten the carne asada, it’s so good! I brought my parents for my dad’s birthday, and they had a truly wonderful time and experience.
The food was amazing outside my friend's Brussels sprouts order being delayed so her main course - steak got cold. Sever did reheat it though. The server needs customer service training--we were not impressed. However, the manager (African american lady) was super apologetic and kind. Her along with great food decent our service will allow me to return in the future.
We decided to eat a Mi Vida before going to a concert next door at The Anthem. Despite arriving early we were immediately seated outside (as requested) and our server immediately noticed our wristbands and said he'd be mindful of the time. He made good recommendations on cocktails and food. Service was efficient and the food was very good. Bearing in mind that DC is a world capital city the prices are very reasonable. Being that we were seated outdoors I can't really comment on the ambience or noise level. I will definitely return the next time we're at the Wharf!
Food was amazing and reminded me of Mexico City. The duck appetizer is fantastic, as are the corn bread and corn tortillas. Everything was excellently flavored and spiced. As someone who can't handle super spicy foods, I felt everything was well spiced and some dishes had just enough heat without being overpowering. We will definitely be returning.
I have visited over 15 times and I found the food to be extremely spicy hot even after inquiring with the waitress who is excellent. So disappointed as I did not finish or enjoy my meal.
We love coming to MiVida. Presentation is nice. Food always excellent and fresh.
The atmosphere was wonderful. The food, in general, was bland. The waitstaff was mediocre. They were nice but not friendly.
Our waiter Josh was outstanding! He made perfect recommendations for cocktails and food and was so incredibly welcoming.
The dim lighting made it difficult to read the menus. The ambiance was disturbed by people having to use their phones to light up the menu.
No one bothered to tell me happy hour is only served at the bar or outside. This was the main point of my reservation. The food isn’t worth the price.
Perfect! Couldn’t have been any better!!!
Went for a birthday celebration. The experience was not impressive.
Delicious food and great ambience. Will visit again.
The food was perfect, and the prices were affordable.
First time here with friends. Everything was expensive. (Which expected because of location) Everything is al la carte. Hard to understand the waiter and gave us the most expensive options, but he was nice. The food was okay. Definitely not worth the money though.
Todo delicioso y auténtica comida mexicana, conservan muy bien su esencia y sabores muy recomendado!! Vayan por favor :)
Despite 30+ wind gusts, my colleagues was impressed with the location (The Wharf), music, ambiance, and food. I loved ❤️ the GUAC!!
Our service lacked attentiveness
If I/we ask, you're too late.
If I/ we ask more than once, it's frustrating.
Mi Vida is increíble¡ The food and its ingredients are fresh the drinks are strong and delicious and the customer service is five star! Not to mention the decor is a total vibe! We were welcomed and helped by this gorgeous and super helpful woman named Erin and she really helped make our night super special … definitely going back for every occasion!
Had a nice view looking down at the Anthem (concert venue) crowd in line for the show. Chicken tacos were delicious. Take advantage of the lower floor restroom, since the one upstairs—well that’s just it, there was only one operational. Definitely recommend if going to a concert.
Downstairs manager was very rude and aggressive when we walked in. We had a reservation for a party of 4. 3 of us was in the restaurant the other was parking the car, the manager with a very rude tone let me know that she could not sit the full party until we were all there. so we were waiting for 1 person to be seated.
When we were finally seated we asked for straws multiple times and did not receive one until 10min after.
It wasn't looking like we were going to have a good night, until the upstairs manager, I believe her name was Erin. She took good care of us after we were not having a great time.
Thank you to Erin and our waiter, they helped turn this experience around.
The mezcal cocktails and ceviche are always my favorite. Unbeatable view!
Great atmosphere, yummy food!
Always a treat. My guest loved his enchiladas, and our drinks - with strawberry and lime were exquisit.
Tremendous food - great service.
Also delightful setting with great food and attentive service.
Not much to say, but that it was not special!
Awesome. We had a wonderful time
Orlando was awesome, making great recommendations to each of us in our party. We had wonderful food and a great time. Thank you!
Food was really tasty and authentic. Our server was attentive and humorous. Great guy.
Mosquitoes and uncooperative hostesses! I took my managerial staff to MiVida for a thank you management luncheon, and we were semi-disappointed with the service, ambiance, food, etc. I was initially very frustrated with the hostess. We had a party of 6 people, and she insisted on seating us at a table for 4, outside, in the direct sun. I asked if she could add another table, so that we could sit comfortably, but she said she could not “break up” the other tables. Instead, she added a chair at either end of the table. So two people sat on the bench seating, two people had chairs, and then two people were squeezed into both ends of the table. They would not add another table for us, even though there were several 2-person tables that were empty, right next to our table. When I asked for a larger table, she said that they could not accommodate us, even though the restaurant was empty!!! Then the sun was beating down on my guests, so I asked if they could lower the shades. They REFUSED. So we asked for another table, inside. In the meantime, my guests were getting bitten by mosquitoes, and there were flies everywhere. They moved us inside, and it was much better, although there were a lot of mosquitoes. The food was okay — not great, and not a good value. One of my guests did not want spicy food, we we ended up having to order a second dish for her. The “special” mango juice did not taste like it was made from fresh mango. It was watery. Overall, a terrible experience.
