    We stopped for a late dinner with the family and were very satisfied. It was around 10pm and they were still very busy. The food was excellent and fresh. We had many different things but the seafood paella and the enchiladas were outstanding. The margaritas were so very tasty that we ended up having a couple of pitchers. Overall, great experience and we will definitely be back soon!!

    Loved the food and cocktails. The restaurant was very full and lively so it was very noisy for a while. However, the ambiance was very fun and the staff was super nice and helpful. The orders did take a little longer than previous visits but it was understandable given how full the restaurant was.

    Best modern Mexican restaurant in DC with great service. We stop by every time we are visiting from NY and it’s great to see the same staff and be recognized. The Habanero Margaritas were perfect with just the right touch of spicy. We were craving the Paella 🥘 and it was amazing!!

    We arrived for our reservation and were seated. 30 minutes passed before anyone spoke with us. 45 minutes after being seated we still hadn’t received a drink or food. So we finished our glasses of water, canceled our order, and left to eat elsewhere. This app makes you rate all facets of the experience, but only my rating of service is applicable.

    We were shocked by how quick the service was here! If you don’t have a ton of time but want to do a sit down dinner, I highly recommend coming here. The food and drinks were excellent—we ended up getting more rounds of tacos and margaritas.

    MXDC has been solid for years. The guacamole with lobster and corn and the rockfish ceviche were especially good, as was the traditional margarita. I do miss the 3 course lunch special, though. It would be nice if it came back, even at a higher price point than pre-pandemic.

    Went before a show at The National. Nice ambience, classy Mexican. I’m vegan and options are there- would be nicer to have more but appreciate they label what is vegan. That means they recognize what it is. Javier provided good service.

    The food was delicious, our server was outstanding. I had the pollo enchiladas and they were the best enchiladas that I've had in the DC metro area. It was a bit noisy, but the food and service was ah-mazing.

    Really delicious tacos - love that you can do a "pick 3." They are the perfect size for a light lunch but when you want something different than a salad.

    Got the pork belly taco and it was kind of tough. Not melt in your mouth like other pork belly dishes I’ve had. Guacamole was amazing. Strong margaritas. Shrimp taco was good. Carne asada was more like pulled pork in a sauce. Didn’t care for it.
