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.

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 ,

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!

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.
