Overall good experience. We arrived 30 min early for our reservation but they were able to seat us. Menu dis not match the one online. But the food was good. They forgot part of my wife’s order but they did not charge us and gave us a fee dessert.
Disappointing lunch. The food was above, but barely, what you might get in the frozen food section.
Good place for some quick Mexican fare.
Food is Good, not great. Good for groups. The ambiance is great.
I THINK IT WAS A LITTLE BIT OVERPRIZED AND FOOD WAS NOT VERY GOOD.
Had a wonderful time at MXDC!! The food was very good and the service was great.
The place was so horribly loud I had to use earplugs. The jicama salad was very odd with a dressing that overwhelmed all components. Tacos were small and flavors mostly meh.
Good ambience, delish ceviche and tacos especially the Cameron’s Frita (sp)
Very good experience, we got the vegan tacos and traditional guacamole. Loved it. More vegan options please :)
Service is always good, food is always good, margaritas are superb, but the tables are VERY close and when the restaurant is full, as it was Saturday night, it’s a tiny bit claustrophobic.
Nevertheless we always enjoy MXDC’s proximity to the theaters, and know we are going to be take care of and satisfied with our meal afterwards. Will recommend this tasty spot to all.
The drinks were very good, the food just OK. They brought out our entrees while we were still eating our appetizers, we made them take them back.
We had a very nice evening, I would definitely go again. Great food, great service, an overall great experience.
Food was decent there were hits and misses. They were a bit stingy on the portions. The appetizers were disappointing. On the good side the drinks were very good. I would go there for happy hour and go somewhere else for dinner.
Food was great. Portions were tiny. Server was kind of rude when expressed that the drink was to our liking. Felt rushed.
The food was delicious, especially the lobster quesadilla! The cocktails were pretty good, but I've had better. Some people who were seated after us received their food first, so that was a little disappointing, but it's not like we were in a huge hurry anyway. But the waitstaff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a good experience.
Had an awesome date night with my husband here. Margarita’s were killer and food was perfect portions, so flavorful. Had a great time!
I enjoyed everything but the noise level in the restaurant.
Great atmosphere and friendly staff!! The mix and match tacos are a great option. Will keep coming back!!
Not worth the price. There are far less expensive Mexican restaurants in the area, with better food.
Good was great. Service was great. Loud, but it was lunchtime.
Great food, authentic mexican food
Really great gluten free options! I was very impressed by the server knowledge of the menu and their accommodations towards me as I was trying to order. Really amazing food and drink overall
The food was excellent. The service was fantastic and very quick for lunchtime.
Food outstanding. Good, not huge portions.
Rockfish ceviche excellent.
We (2 of us) each ordered 2 different taco combos.
Had 6 different tacos all excellent.
Took my husband and two young boys there for dinner during a weekend DC visit. Everyone loved the food and the boys loved the ambiance...it was moderately loud which is good because it drowns out our table.
The staff was very friendly and the managers were very helpful. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and everyone had a great time. The food was amazing and the drinks were great!! I would suggest the churros fried ice cream for dessert. Will come back!!!
Food ok - went most of the meal without cutlery on the table in spite of several visits by staff to take and deliver orders. Had to do the old “steal knives and forks from the next table.”
Great and vibrant atmosphere! Loved the food and margaritas. The restaurant was very busy so definitely make reservations. Service was great too!
The Chili Relleno was great. That was 1 meal out of 5. The rest were average to poor — and one was mistaken entirely and had to be re-made. And this took about 20 minutes which completely disrupted the flow of our family meal. Potions too were about 80-90% of what they should have been. Not a great night out.
Good food. Modern style Mexican food.
Overall very tasty
We were seated quickly and service was good, albeit, a little rushed. We ordered guac for an appetizer but it arrived with our entrees. Not exactly what we were hoping for, but at least everything tasted good.
Super busy evening! Good food!
Four of us went to MXDC to celebrate a co-worker’s upcoming retirement. Safe to say things did not go well. Before the others arrived, guacamole was ordered for the table and it was brought out quickly. Things went downhill from there. We wanted cava and the server brought out two bottles and neither was selected. Then asked for other options and was told that that was all they had. Appears MXDC was waiting for an order of cava to be delivered. Then the waiter reappeared with a bottle of prosecco. Important to note, that prosecco wasn’t even on the menu. By this time, decision had been made to switch to wine. Waiter had trouble locating the wine list. When he returned, pointed out that we had been there for 30 minutes and still had been unable to get a beverage. Finally said something to a manager. She went to the bar and brought back a) a bottle of cava that we had already not selected and b) something new that the waiter didn’t even know existed. Selected the new bottle and was told it was chilled. Of course, it wasn’t. Server was slow in refilling the glasses but did come over when he saw us filling our own glasses. People seemed to like their food. Three people ordered the mix and match tacos and one person had the rockfish ceviche. Don’t know if the server is new but management needs to be proactive. Even after it was brought to the manger's attention that there were issues, they didn't check back to see if things had improved. If we go back to MXDC, will only sit in the bar area. Disappointed that things didn’t run smoothly for the retirement celebration.
Exceptional modern Mexican. Excellent value. Loved the sangria. Service was excellent.
If you like spice, I suggest asking for the habanero salsa to put on top of your food! It is delicious but oh so spicy!
Had to send the queso fundido back it was gross didn’t even have the texture of cheese. Weird. Super loud tacos looked good but didn’t have them
The food at this place great. Truly fresh Mexican food (no prepared yesterday tasting meats). The tortillas appeared to be made onsite. It was a huge happy hour hot spot in DC. We were there for dinner on business but were not deterred by the vivacious chatter around the room. Will definitely go back again. Nice find.
The service was fantastic. The cocktails were well crafted and balanced. The guac and salsa were some of the best I've head in DC. The honey chile glazed salmon was delicious with a good balance of sweetness and heat. The fajitas had brilliantly fresh vegetables but the dish underseasoned to the point that perhaps it was unintentionally unseasoned. Overall, it was a good experience and I will be back.
The main meal was good but the portions are pretty small for the price. The major issue was the churros were undercooked / very oily and when the waiter asked how the food was we said it was very good, other than the churros and explained and he said "ok excellent". The service in general was a bit lacking and overall a bit pricy for what it is
