A beautiful place to eat amazing food. I can’t wait to go back.
Everything about Mi Vida is exceptional - the food, drinks, atmosphere but above all else, the level of service and gracious and friendly vibes from everyone who works there. We celebrated a special occasion, and from the moment we walked in the door until leaving the restaurant, we were treated like VIPs. Their attention to detail is amazing. We loved the food (the brisket enchiladas with molè!), the views, the margaritas, the staff, everything! Cannot recommend highly enough.
As always the food was great and the drinks were fantastic. Our server Lindsey is the best! She was my server once before so I asked for her again today and she was just as wonderful today. I will.ask.for her each time
Service was very slow
Waiter was superb! Food was delicious, tasty...
Drive from Richmond is worth it for this restaurant. My father is Mexican and feels as if this restaurant can be considered authentic Mexican just based on the salsa alone. Food is amazing every time.
Good Mexican food. I realize that the Wharf must have very expensive rent but the value for the meal is not appropriate.
Great customer service and the food was delicious. The view from the restaurant, the taste of the food, and the cool weather made you forget of the difficult times our Nation is facing with the Pandemic. I will come back to this nice place for sure.
third time dining there in the last year. recommend highly. great tasting food and remarkably high and consistent level of service from three different staff!
Service and patio with water view were excellent. It's our go to spot for happy hour, and I'm sure we'll be back soon.
Fabulous meal, socially distancing! Service was incredible. Anticipated our every need. Delicious food, large servings. A perfect outing during these crazy times.
I love Mi Vida! The food is to die for, service is impeccable and the ambiance is amazing.
Wonderful Father’s Day meal on the patio. Everything was delicious.
Recommended for Locals and Visitors. Excellent place to visit at The Wharf. Their frozen mango margarita called La Frozen is as good as it gets. The food is also great. Service, ambiance and setting overlooking the Potomac river, 5 Stars.
Keep in mind that d/t the pandemic, there was no inside seating. Went for lunch last wknd. Food is excellent and not over the top expensive. Service was perfect. Can't wait to try it for dinner.
Even with COVID-19 restrictions and percussions, the staff was still able to provide excellent service.
Very accommodating on the patio in the rain. Great service!
Very reasonably priced and extremely fresh food. Possibly the best Mexican food I’ve had.
In the pandemic era, we've been quite careful about going out and haven't gone to sit outside at any restaurants. But we're celebrating our 25th anniversary (and going a bit stir crazy). BTW - the service staff and patrons were very good about masking. I cannot say the same for the majority of the people taking strolls on the Wharf... It was a most beautiful weather evening and our table was perfect for the family. FIrst up was the wonderful margarita!! We also ordered two appetizers including the guac and chips. Each also ordered a main. It is a LOT of food and all of us took away half our dinners.
In today's world (COVID19), where everyone is attempting to find a way to do things at all...or even better; Mi Vida excels. Safety is immediately addressed at the host stand. 2 hour time limit per seating is explained and made the opening honest and credible. The food taste and presentation was the best I've had after multiple visits. It was a really good meal. I ordered a few personal cocktails not listed on the menu and was extremely pleased with the audible provided by the bartender. We ate outside and ordered multiple menu items just to fill the 2 hours. The service couldn't have been better and the flavor is ALWAYS why I return. At the two hour mark the host returned with a kind nudge "wink" and we departed with a to-go drink! Support this restaurant.
We really enjoyed our lunch at Mi Vida. The location is fantastic and the food was very good.
We came over from Virgina.
So sad bad service. Server was not friendly at all. It made us feel we r bugging him. Its terrible if economy opens you get business and still you are not happy to help . Woooo bad tase .
Girls night out! Great food! Will return
Excellent service and delicious food. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary in the midst of COVID~19 and social distancing and we had a fantastic time.
Despite the limited number of food options, food was AMAZING!
Management and staff were great! And you definitely get a good amount of food for the cost
The food and service was amazing. I chose this place for a first date and he was so impressed! I will be back
Excellent food and service. Would highly recommend.
Great seating overlooking the harbor!
Wonderful evening, with lovely table on balcony, didn't feel rushed for dinner, food and drink were outstanding
Unfortunately due to Covid they did not have many of their normal options on the menu. Otherwise great outdoor dining experience.
Mango frozen margarita was probably one of the beat margs I’ve ever had. Food was great too!
Guacamole and Steak Salad were great; ceviche delicious but a bit too spicy. Steak salad had to be sent back first time (overdone) and fish tacos were OK but too heavily fried.
Service was outstanding -- attentive and respectful; caught the error with the steak salad and took care of it for us.
Mi Vida has always been a stop on my many tours of family and friends while they’re in DC. The ambience and location are 5/5, with unique and authentic decor throughout the entire restaurant and patio.
However, the food quality seems to have dipped in recent visits, which I would give a 2/5. No longer does the food seem “cooked to order”, but rather line cooked and warmed under an industrial heater. The guacamole was especially sub-par compare to my first visits here, and the entrees not much better. The brunch menu pricing compared to the quality of food is, frankly put, too high.
A $77 bill for 2 people where neither the food nor drinks were bottomless? It’s time to reassess the brunch option at Mi Vida.
Overall recommendation - be cautious and be ready to spend more than you‘d like for subpar food in a great location.
There was not many people yet service took a while.
In such a cute area, had so much fun. The drinks and food was excellent!! I will be coming back!
Outstanding. Thoughtfully prepared and well seasoned interpretations. Looking forward to returning.
My daughter birthday
Delicious food - not a cheap meal but everything was really tasty! Service was great and love the decor and vibe!
