MXDC Ratings and Reviews
Good was great. Carne asada taco didn't have much flavor but the short rib was delish. The salmon entree was fantastic. Only negative was my waitress brought the check out while I had a full drink in front of me. She didn't ask if I wanted another one.
This was my second visit, but my first at dinner. Really enjoyed the jicama salad and the hongo (mushroom) tacos. Was a bit loud, and tables are a bit close, but was a lively atmosphere and expected it from prior reviews. Arrived at reservation time and told they might need a few minutes as someone was just leaving. Took just a few minutes as promised. Service was helpful, with an offer to answer any questions about the menu. My water glass was refilled multiple times. Food arrived at a nice pace and was quite tasty. Overall, it was a nice meal at a nice place. I'd definitely return.
We were pleasantly surprised with the restaurant. It is located a few short blocks to the National Theater so it is an ideal location for a pre-show meal. The food was spectacular particularly the Huegos & the churros for dessert. Chicken enchilada was simply divine. We’ll definitely come back the next time we see a show or come to downtown DC.
We were in town for a night and found MXDC through OpenTable and it did not disappoint. The food and sangria was delicious! Highly recommend the Pollo Enchiladas and Carne A La Padilla. The 3 variety tasting option for the tacos is also a great way to taste the delicious flavours of tacos MXDC has to offer.
While we enjoyed the drinks, the food was truly tiny portions for the prices. I also thought everything was sweet, which was strange given that I got tacos. Unfortunately, we also were seated on the balcony area, which only had one waitress and one bartender, and they were overwhelmed. Overall we enjoyed for a special occasion, but I don't have any need to return.
What a nice surprise. I have been walking by this restaurant for three years and never went in. The lunch menu was just the right size: not too many choices, not too few either. I ordered three different tacos for ($12) . Each was delicious and nuanced. The waiter was very friendly, efficient but not overbearing. Unfortunately, we did not try any of the alcohol offerings.
My only complaint is the incredibly high noise level. Our "table neighbors" were the first to complain about it and THEY were the loudest! Only because of that, I will hesitate to return... or arrive at around 1:30 p.m.
Servers were all very friendly. We lucked out with a booth in the corner or it would have been difficult to have a conversation. Loud. The food was tasty, decent selection. We had the octopus ceviche which was way more onion than octopus, but still delicious. I had two white sangrias which would normally knock me off my feet. I didn't really taste the wine at all...
The food was great. We had paella for two. Very tasty, not too spicy, plentiful serving with lots of food leftover. The only drawback was that it was so noisy that my date and I had difficulty hearing each other. Not at all suitable for a quiet, intimate date but but great for a quick bite on the way to National theater. Very tasty food and very good service...very little wait for the food. All in all, a good time that we will repeat in the future!
This meal was a let down. I've gone before and always had the tacos, which I remembered being very good. This time I tried the enchiladas and they brought the wrong dish to start (though quickly swapped), my food was only luke-warm, and quite mediocre. Given the prices, I expect some combination of better quality or larger serving. It's also too loud to have a business meal with more than 2 people.
Bar area is small, but nice. Overall good food. Somewhat disappointed with the quality - expected an A+ experience in terms of taste,etc. (note, my parents are Mexican and I have traveled throughout Mexico a lot...so I know Mexican food well). It wasn't bad - but wasn't as good as I expected from a higher end restaurant.
Food was mediocre to good but service was subpar. After delivering the food no one came by again until we were ready for the check. No one asked us if we needed anything (I would have liked some hot sauce) and no one asked us how the food was. When we left, we passed by four employees who appeared to be immersed in their own conversation, none of whom said anything to us as we exited. Nice sophisticated atmosphere with subpar service.
We selected to come here before an evening at the Warner Theater and we are so glad that we did. The portions of food were perfect as you never want to be stuffed before sitting in a show for 2 hours. We had a couple of drinks, split and appetizer ( shrimp ceviche) and each had a main course. We were both very impressed with the meal and though full were not uncomfortably so. The hand made tortillas were like air....very light. All in all a delightful evening for a very reasonable price.
Way. Too. LOUD! Hubby and I were at a small table and we couldn't hear each other without literally shouting. Place was busy, and I felt very much just like a number at a table; waiter seated me then never returned to see if I wanted to order an appetizer while I waited. With the numbers of people it was impossible to flag him down.
