As the saying goes, “Mi Casa es su casa…my home is your home.” Mi Casa is your home away from home. At Mi Casa, we aim to share an upscale experience where the Mexican border intersects with the passion, cooking and flavors of TexMex and the American Southwest.

The menu looks primarily to TexMex with inspiration from California and New Mexico. Our culinary team brings a fresh perspective to border cuisine as it evolved in the USA through the creative energy of the immigrants who imported these vibrant food cultures.

The drinks and food were amazing. Recommend getting "La Fiesta" as a meal for a big party or date night. A lot of food. Good range of tequila. Service was amazing. Connor was a great server.

Great job with the space and very happy to have Mi Casa in the neighborhood. I do wish their salsa was better (like Lauriol Plaza) and it was quieter inside but otherwise a good experience.

We went to Taco Tuesday and sat outside. It was a little noisy at first with street traffic, but the noised died down after awhile. The Happy Hour food was very good. You have to like spicy food, though. Also would have appreciated more vegetarian options for those who don't eat meat or fish. We also ordered the guacamole which was spicy and delicious. It wasn't on the Happy Hour menu. Also, they didn't have a Happy Hour margarita, which disappointed one member of our party. Overall, though, it was great and I would recommend it!

Mi Casa is a new addition to Dupont Circle, and they are trying very hard. Caveat: I'm from California and quite spoiled when it comes to authentic Mexican cooking, so I may be a bit more critical when it comes to the food. First, the service is outstanding--very attentive, accommodating, and on par with five-star restaurants. My husband and I sat outside and it was a warm day with the sun beating down on a number of the tables. We were lucky to get one that was partially shaded but the staff had to deal with patrons who expected the sun to realign in the sky according to their heat tolerance--the restaurant was patient in the face of seriously unreasonable and unpleasant diners. Our meals were quite good--fish and al pastor tacos, and a side of the chipotle corn. The gratis sides of charro beans were welcome and delicious. The cost of the overall meal was the big downside--at least twice as much as this meal would cost in most other "regular" Mexican restaurants. The entrees were quite pricey as well. I will return to try other dishes at Mi Casa, as the overall experience was very positive.

They were a little behind on getting us our first round of drinks but they comped them so that was quite nice. They also forgot one of our appetizers and we had to remind them right about the time that our main courses came out. Overall the food and cocktails were pretty good but not worth the inflated prices. Keep in mind that most entrees do not come with any side dish. You could definitely sense that the restaurant was working out the kinks but that is to be expected with a recent opening. I love deviled eggs but I would NOT recommend the chorizo deviled eggs. They have an off putting taste. I would recommend the guacamole even though it is overpriced.

Great staff and lovely ambiance.

But was annoyed that when various cocktails on the menu weren’t available, because the staff are “not allowed by management” to make the named cocktails when something is missing…that we had to argue with bartender and waiter to get them to make an approximation of the missing drink.

So odd. Speaking as a former bartender, you *always* have a Plan B. You don’t just tell the customer, “no you can’t have that, and no, we won’t make it with that one ingredient missing.”

Also, the nachos are covered in the dipping cheese sauce that’s served as per of another appetizer.
It makes them gloppy. Ugh.

Mi Casa is not a Mexican restaurant. It is some kinda wannabe but doesn’t know how. I had sangria which was so sweet I had to ask the server to put seltzer water in it (it was still too sweet). My husband had a margarita which was pretty much water. I had an enchilada stack and my husband had rolled enchiladas. The sauce was pretty bad, not Mexican but some maybe upscale version of a red sauce and green sauce. There was lots of chicken in both the stacked and rolled. We had a cheese appetizer. The cheese was so tough that it was difficult to cut with a steak knife. Actually when the server put the cheese on the table - he walked away. We had to ask another server to give us plates and he came back with the serving utensils and plates (nice of him). I so wanted to find a good local Mexican restaurant but Mi Casa is a long way from good. We won’t go back. Too bad.

I ate here for the first time and now will become a regular. Mi Casa is all you want in a neighborhood restaurant - a friendly, comfortable vibe, great food and service, good value. The food is ample, well presented and really good. I ordered enchiladas, my friend had shrimp and steak fajita and we both praised our choices. The service on a busy Saturday night was outstanding. Our waiter was friendly, patient, courteous, describing dishes and helping us make choices. The manager stopped by tables, greeted everyone and made us feel special. We had an outside table so conversation was easy, a big plus for us. Definitely will go back soon.

Mexican cuisine is a family favorite & my family & I were hankering it. We did a search & chance discovered Mi Casa near DuPont Circle & was so pleased with everything about it, my family & I chose it to be our last night in DC dinner before flying back home.
Going twice was best choice we made everything we order was delicious- very fresh & flavorful especially the Carne Asada & shrimp & avocado cocktail, the service & management was beyond top notch with friendliness & kindness by Omar, Melvin & Manuel, the atmosphere for indoor or outdoor seating was comfortable & clean.
Mi Casa is our new favorite restaurant & will be 1st place we go to when returning to DC

Great service, lovely ambiance. The food was good, except tacos, that were under seasoned and overcooked. But the waiter rectified the situation by accepting the dish back and letting me pick a new entree. Ceviche was absolutely stunning, one of the best I’ve tried.

Mi Casa is new to the DuPont area and is a great place to relax, enjoy good food and be treated amazingly. We have eaten at Mi Casa twice and both times had Melvin as our waiter. Be sure to ask for him - he is one of the best waiters we’ve ever had and will definitely ensure you have fabulous service. This second visit we sat in the interior patio and it was such a beautiful night, they opened the large windows - wonderful ambience. We will definitely be returning for another wonderful evening.

I went to Mi Casa for restaurant week and while ive been to quite a few tex-mex places, Mi Casa is right up there at the top. First the chips are perfectly crispy, a good chip at a tex-mex restaurant will tell you how good the food will be. The puree salsa was fantastic as well, not too spicy and not too many seeds.

After the chips, they brought out the jicama and orange crudeité which was also good, not really my thing but they sprinkled it with Tajín and Tajín makes everything taste amazing. The crudeité was flavorful and sweet, it was a nice twist.

Next came the salad, it was a salad, it was good but I wish it had a a little bit more dressing. In the salad was a mixture strawberry and mango with fried onion for a bit of crunch.

Then came the fajitas......they were exemplary. The fajitas were chicken, steak and shrimp. All were well seasoned, had a bit of char that gave a little bit of a smokey flavor and flavorful. The chicken wasn't dry and actually tasted fresh, the steak came out medium rare which is not how I eat my steak but they cooked it a bit more and it came out perfect after. The shrimp was CLEAN, seasoned and juicy and it came with a grilled cornbread situation that was a welcomed surprised as it was crispy on the outside but very moist on the inside.

I got a moscow mule with titos which was a fairly good but not the best I've had.

For dessert they had churros which was probably the only let down of the entire meal. The churros tasted perfectly like churros but they were hollow and crunchy like the cinnamon twist nonsense that Taco Bell used to or still does sell as churros - but honestly only one restaurant makes a decent churro in the DC area.

My server was Camille and she was fantastic, not too pushy but she checked on the table at reasonable intervals so you knew she was there and attentive.

I'll be coming back to Mi Casa, the restaurant is new and I hope they stick around because there can never be too many tex-mex restaurants.

Mi Casa serves good food. The guacamole is enough to go here and try the rest of the food. We visited during D.C. Restaurant Week. We were seated for the 7pm reservation, promptly. Service was OK. It became more clear that as more diners departed from eating the service improved. Food we ate: fajitas (shrimp, chicken, steak, veg). The serving platter(s) + the dinner plates could not fit on the small 2 top table offered by Mi Casa.
