    Really fun, ambience upbeat. The service was top-notch. Regrettably I forget the name of our server but he was extremely attentive and friendly. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours totally recommend trying the margarita flight with the various tequilas. Two people in our party or vegetarian thankfully, they have a nice selection of vegetarian, and even vegan options on the menu very high-quality.

    AMAZING!!! The food, the service, and decor were all five stars! As a Mexican food junkie, this was certainly one of the most interesting menu’s I have ever seen. More importantly every dish was perfectly executed! We ordered several apps, entrees and desserts and I had the opportunity to try all of it. Each taste and bite better than the previous- we certainly will be returning soon and often. The service was also spot on. Our waiter made insightful recommendations as well. The decor is amazing too, as well as beautiful serving vessels, glassware, and every small detail perfectly thought out. This place is FIVE STARS! FUN, GREAT VIBE, and INCREDIBLE FOOD AND SERVICE!! Not only will you not be disappointed, you will be wanting to come back soon and try more menu items!! Don’t miss the desserts as well! Can’t wait to go back again soon!!!

    Good experience overall for our party of four. We ordered guacamole with cheese and grapes and it was delicious. Chips were fresh. Ordered four entrees and had left overs for the next home dinner. Enchiladas with mole were especially delicious. Only negative is noise level. We were told politely but firmly at reception that we would need to be on the heated patio to have a quiet place. That was fine but when we were seated on the patio the music was still too loud. Asked them —politely but firmly—to please turn the music volume down. This actually did happen, for which we were very appreciative. BUT given that we chose the restaurant because we read the Yelp reviews and at least one person said the restaurant was on the quiet side, we were disappointed that Mi Vida did not lean in to quiet dining. So be warned, if you are looking for a nice, relaxed, and quiet dinner setting, Mi Vida may not be your best choice.

    Let’s start with the food is fantastic. The place is cool. However my 3 star rating comes from the service, but it was not the server’s fault. Booked Thanksgiving meal at 7:30pm with Open Table reservations. Come to find out that they close at 8pm on Thanksgiving. Made the assumption that it was probably just no new people let in after 8. Well, the bar last call was at 8 before we even had our meal. After our appetizers we were asked if we wanted any dessert. We had to let them know we actually planned on eating dinner. “No rush”, but the house lights came on at 8:30. We were back outside by 8:45. Not the experience we expected for our Thanksgiving meal in DC. I understand wanting to get home on the holiday, but then don’t allow a 7:30 reservation. I certainly could’ve eaten elsewhere. I just didn’t like being rushed for my family’s holiday meal. I spent a lot of time finding a good spot that was open on Thanksgiving and planned to tip well for their efforts. Still tipped well. Food was great and the server was just trying to get home, but they should’ve cut off reservations at 6 if they expected to be closing up at 8.

    We've enjoyed several meals at the Mi Vida location on the waterfront, so we keen to try the new location on 14th street. We loved the interior space and design of the restaurant. Really fun! The food was very good and service great. We are particularly grateful that you make allergen info clear on your menus as we have Celiac so have to avoid gluten. We applaud that you make it clear and also seamless part of the experience. We definitely recommend others try Mi Vida.

    I've dined at Mi Via twice. Disappointing the first time, really pretty poor the second time. The food seems overwrought, overcooked, and over sauced. It had none of the fresh appeal of Mexican food. It's a nice looking place, the service was fine, but it's all about the food for me, I would not come back.

    Nice atmosphere, good food except unfortunately for the complimentary dessert (the gesture was appreciated though). Melinda, Antonio and Ken were notably the standouts at the *end* to check in regarding our experience in terms of hospitality but unfortunately we didn’t have outstanding service throughout and were unpleasantly compromised in terms of our space (we were a party of 2 against a wall) when the very large party next to us were accommodated by having an additional chair placed for someone at the end of their table next to us (they pulled a chair from another table to do this) tightening our already slim space between tables, and frankly ruining our experience. The waiter several times insisted on pushing our table even further against the wall. Unacceptable to make room this way and compromise our table and experience in my opinion. The larger table was also prioritized in terms of service. There was no space to even leave the table as the passage was blocked and we stared at someone’s back right next to us throughout our meal. For us, and despite the food and ambience we would reconsider coming here.

    This was one of a laughable experience. IG y’all need to stop hyping basic up. Buzzworthy 🤣🤣. but quality was sub standard. The waiter was amazing. Great energy and service. The server acted like they were shy or nervous. Cause they were scared to place the plate onto the table. The food was 🫤🫤. I could have went to mi ranchero.
