Mio Restaurant is well known for serving outstanding cuisine from Puerto Rico while at the same time cultivating a fun, inviting and warm atmosphere. The chefs are dedicated to preparing each meal with only the finest ingredients, and they are constantly refining and experimenting with new creations. Whether you want to sit at the bar for drinks or in one of the leather booths for a full meal, Mio has plenty to offer.
Those dining at Mio can order things such as the local fresh catch with pineapple and mango, pan seared salmon, fried plantains or a 12-oz grilled ribeye steak. Both non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages are available, and be sure to top off your meal with one of the many wonderful desserts.
Really love the look and feel of the restaurant and added to that was the fact that the food was great. I will definitely be back.
I am from Puerto Rico and this is an excellent version of traditional puertorrican cuisine.
Food was great and very authenthic puerto rican dishes
Seveche was incredible and so was the pan roasted calamari with mushrooms. The entree of pan seared rock fish was cooked well but lacked imagination, it needed something to take it to the next level. Dessert of eggless custard, coconut and pineapple was a dream delivered on all fronts ,
Very good restaurant. I would definitively recommend it for a regular night out.
Amazing restaurant. We found this restaurant through open table. Every time we visit DC is a must to eat here. Best Latin restaurant ever. Wish they would have one in NY or south jersey even Philly. Highly recommend it.
I'll keep this short. I took a friend to Mio for her birthday. The food was all very good, we had: tostones (fried plantains), arepitas (cheese filled savory fried dough) with black beans and slaw, salmon, and pork tenderloin. And for dessert we had Puerto Rican coffee (delicious!) and guava cheesecake (also delicious!).
The service was amazing and they were even nice enough to take a few pictures for us to commemorate the evening.
Definitely would recommend anyone visit Mio for a simple, elegant, and well-seasoned dining experience!
would not recommed.
reservation with open table at 8:30pm, Mio's hostest advised 9pm on her system hasd towait an extra 30mins or so.
food not that great from what i have expected from a friends recommendation.
i will not go back or refer to any friends or mines
Great overall experience a little bit pricey but it's a great place to reminisce and taste Puerto Rican food, or at least the closest taste I'll find here in DC.
Asked to be seated in quieter area so not noisy. Enjoyed the change from our usual food. Enjoyed the food as we had in Puerto Rico.
I got to know Mio when I worked a block away, and it's now one of my go-to business lunch places. They also have a marvelous happy hour. There is a warm and fun Latino vibe, which is enjoyable no matter your background or heritage. The food is superb and always fresh. This is a hidden gem in the otherwise ho-hum options around McPherson Square.
Nice ambience--Lots of big tables with big parties. Recommend: ceviche; yucca and or tostones. The arepitas sounded better than they were. For mains we had nightly special of halibut--very nicely cooked & presented with lentils--But, would recommend the Puerto Rican Seafood Stew--It was yummy! The service was very friendly but very slow--because we had theater tickets we had to forgo coffee and dessert.
Mio was an experience while savoring a well prepared delectable cuisine. We really enjoyed the ambiance, customer service and Latin culture. Great selection for special occasions. One of the best all-around eateries we've visited in quite sometime.
Booked our anniversary dinner here because we spent our honeymoon in Puerto Rico. The food was awesome! Service was fine, except we had trouble getting the check because our waiter was also being the bartender. Also, because I made the reservation well in advance, and we had an early dining time when it's not crowded, AND told them it was our anniversary, I had hoped to be offered a more private table. As it was we were seated in the busier central section near the open kitchen. Guess we should have spoken up. But we'll be back, because the food really is terrific and is something rather unique for DC.
The Mofongo is the best outside Puerto Rico. The same for the flan.
as always the food was superb and the service was great! No matter what you choose from the menu (a classic to a succulent creation) you cannot go wrong.
The duck breast was delicious. The bar was hopping and the atmosphere was nice. Some of my friend's pork tenderloin was overcooked. The service was inattentive.
Waiter imposed his taste and would respond to every word you'd say before you finish saying it. We ordered two of the same entree; one was extremely salty and the other was not seasoned.
Great Food Great company.. Even with the turonaround of chef's MIO delivers
Met a friend for lunch. It was our first time at Mio. The food was delicious. However our server was awful. He would not come to our table unless we got his attention; a couple of times the hostess had to draw his attention to us and then a couple of other servers helped us when he did not come. It was comical. I would come back but ask for a different server if the same person was serving me again.
