Great experience. All the snacks and apps were delicious. Devil eggs, spiced oranges, chips and Salsa, guacamole, Burria was to die for, tomahawk steak, tacos and carne asade. All great choices. All tequila cocktails were a hit too. No complaints! Perfect choice for my business dinner and was able to walk around the pier afterwards. Parking garage was pricey at $24 for 2 hrs, but that’s not the restaurants fault

Brunch & Dinner
In the best area of 14th Street, modern homage to authentic Mexican Cuisine, featuring local ingredients that result in exquisite and vibrant creations.

It´s all about the corn - the maiz - at this upscale Mexican stunner. Four kinds are turned into fresh masa daily for the tacos, tamales, and other corn-bassed essentials, and even the art on the walls is corn-themed.

Vegetables and fish are one of the Chef's great specialties, including tuna tostada and yellow ceviche, culminating with the traditional catch of the day.

Mezcal Room an extensive bar downstairs, we have a lot of Mexican spirits, including most famous Oaxacan beverage mezcal. There’s a wide spectrum of mezcals, with dozens of flavors ranging

We are a universe of colors, of textures, of flavors; the print of hands worn down legends that draw the magic of a culture willing to be discovered.

We had an early dinner after a matinee and it was a delightful experience. Our waiter was very attentive and he made good recommendations. The wine was an unusual Sicilian white made from the Caricante grape. We had an appetizer of a black truffle pizza with a wonderfully light crust followed by firm but tender linguini with crayfish in a delicate rosy reduction sauce. We’ll be back.

“Mi Vida” translates to “My Life.” However, in Mexico, “Mi Vida” means much more. “Mi Vida” is a term of endearment bestowed on close family and friends to signify love, care and importance. When one says, “Mi Vida,” they are telling someone special how much they mean to them. MI VIDA describes how we feel about our team and our guests. It is our expression of Mexican culture and cuisine as interpreted through the lens of Chef Roberto Santibañez. Our menu is rooted in the history and culinary tradition of Mexico while exploring the ever-changing boundaries of this vibrant and evolving cuisine.

We chose Don Jorge's at the last minute as there were not a lot of choices on a Saturday night. The reviews looked good, so we gave it a try. We are so glad we did! If you like Tex-Mex food, this is the place to go. There was a DJ that also sang and had a surprisingly good voice. The decor is simple yet clean. And the food was great. Everything we tried was perfect including the freshly made salsa. If you are in the mood for Tex-Mex, I would highly recommend Don Jorge's!

Our restaurant's atmosphere is what we would call casual elegance. On our main floor, we have a full dining room, bar, and we call this our "wine bar". The wine bar also has front porch and back patio seating as well. Our wine list has over 100 wines from various regions. We offer multiple bottled wines and a phenomenal selection by the glass as well. Our basement, or as we all know it the pub, has 12 beers on draft, an extensive liquor selection, and a very inviting and comforting atmosphere. Both floors offer the same supper menu, with the exception of the happy hour menu. That is only served in the pub Tuesday-Friday from 4-6. Our third floor is used for overflow seating and private events. Our motto is that when you're here, you're home, and we strive to meet that with every guest. Come in and enjoy a beautiful, local, farm to table meal. We'd love to have you!
