Host was not pleasant although we had reservations. Food was unique!
Basic Mexican fare, but prepared with finest ingredients
The tastes are alive with freshness
Love MX DC. The food is so good and very filling. The decor could be updated.
If you like Mexican food, you HAVE to go to MXDC. Great drinks, great service and an interesting twist on quesadillas, serving them open-face pizza-style.
In town, visiting from California & MXDC had great reviews on Open Table & was close Tom our restaurant. Food was great. Service was a bit slow the first night we dined (ate lunch there a few days later) … but others did their best to help out.
Very good upscale Mexican food. It was very busy but the staff did a nice job of staying on top of things.
First night in DC & the reviews were favorable. Our dinner was great as were the cocktails. Our server was distracted by a larger party at a table next to us. Others did their best to chip in and serve us so all in all not a bad time.
Delicious, creative food. Tacos are out of this world so too the margaritas. Very busy and wait staff overburdened but friendly, helpful and courteous. Highly recommend to anyone visiting DC.
Dinner was fantastic, from the drinks to the food, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Excellent service and food. Only drawback was no free chips and salsa - I feel like that’s a staple at any Mexican restaurant.
Really enjoyed this restaurant and would go back if visiting DC again.
The only downside was that we felt a little rushed by our server. When we ordered drinks and an appetizer, he seemed concerned that we wouldn’t be ordering more food and asked us if we’d be ordering dinner. It seemed like within 5 minutes of being there, he wanted our whole order for the night.
Other than that, the food and ambiance were great. We did mix and match tacos and all were delicious: mahi mahi, carne asada, pork belly and cochinita pibil. Also had guac, jicama salad, brussels (could have done without those) and fried ice cream churro. Drinks were also very good: spicy strawberry Paloma, grapefruit Paloma and mango margarita.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in DC. The food is good and the margaritas are even better! I highly recommend the branzino and roasted chicken dish with honey glaze sauce. This is a great spot to celebrate a special occasion or a night out into what town just because. There’s a parking garage around the corner so the restaurant is easily accessible. Give the restaurant a try!
A great restaurant that we found on a whim. The food was delicious and their selection of tequilas was phenomenal. We would definitely go back again.
Food and drinks were delicious! I requested an outdoor table and it was ready when we arrived.
Boss was craving Mexican and boy did you deliver. Fantastic, fresh guacamole, great margaritas, and the meals were delicious! Our waitress was amazing, just the right mix of attentive and playful. Highly recommend!
Wonderful happy hour menu and great food
The place is cozy and elegant. The food is really tasty and the bar is definitely fun
Food was outstanding!!
Good food. Good service. Would recommend for pre dinner at Warner Theater
Good food, nice location, easy to get in and out
The food and service was great! The payment system was down so we waited about 30mins for a manager to come to our table. They did not make any customer service gestures and asked if they could write down our credit card number to run when their system came back. Wish they would’ve provided better customer service!
Felt rushed. Was there for only 15 minutes before they brought out our main courses. They forgot/skipped our appetizers. It’s like they were trying to get us in and out as fast as possible. Taco Bell is slower than they were. Didn’t realize we were going to a fast food restaurant
Great service, sat outside and enjoyed a quiet Friday evening with seriously good food and beverages. Thx MXDC, we’ll be back!
Great food and service!! Great choices on the menu. I really enjoyed the Pollo Rostizado. Will come back!!
The waiter was amazing. Excellent customer service. We were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday and they made it very special.
Ambiance was great. Food was tasty! Service was very good.
Nothing special in menu or execution. Indoor mask optional and staff without mask.
Entire Staff was on-point. Host, servers, runners, bussers, etc.
Food was perfect. Ages ranged from 8 - 45, and everyone loved it.
Great bar atmosphere! Trendy, but comfortable. The food was good..but the portions were a bit small for the money. Yummy margaritas! I will definitely go back!
Great service, amazing food, and delicious cocktails!
I really enjoyed MXDC, and I would return! Service was fast and friendly, and my salmon was amazing. My biggest complaint is that the dessert I ordered, the fried ice cream churros, cost $1 more on my bill than it did on the menu, and the churros didn't taste like real churros. I also had a difficult time hearing my friends talk.
The food and the drinks were amazing and the wait staff was excellent. Our server/bartender’s recommendations were awesome. I will definitely be returning.
I went for an early dinner by myself. The food was amazing and authentic. I had the queso dip with chorizo (I forgot the name of the dish) and the salmon and yellow rice, it was delicious! My waitress was very nice and attentive, even the bartender came over to bring my drinks. I loved this place, I definitely recommend for Mexican food lovers like myself! 10/10
The food and service is amazing!
Alexandra was awesome. The food was great and the management and atmosphere was wonderful. We saw families and couples in here - everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Give this restaurant a GO. Oh - and ask to be seated at Alexandra’s table she is great!!!!!
Had a very limited menu for dine in which was tailored toward delivery. chips were stale.
Great restaurant with creative and flavorful food. Service was perfect. Highly recommend!
Had a great time catching up with an old colleague and doing business together over delicious food and great drinks.
