    Came here with my bf and we lovedddd it! The ceviche de aji Amarillo and the mariscada were the perfect starters. The shrimp tacos were my favorite by far and the drinks were awesome. Definitely going back!

    Here's the thing: My bf and I ordered margaritas at the bar. I said to the bartender that I wanted a good tequila, "better than house" tequila please. Well, he obliged: he made our margaritas (3 total) with the most expensive tequila they had costing a whopping $33 each. I felt that should have been a quick conversation between him and us before he reached for the Clase Azul.

    Great experience at this restaurant. It was highly recommended by a few friends who live in the city and it didn’t disappoint. Cocktails were amazing and the food was delicious. Best part of all were the friendly and personable staff. From the moment we walked in and until the very moment we finished. Service was quick and attentive. The staff constantly kept our water glasses full and always checked to make sure we’re doing good. Highly recommend and will be stopping whenever in town!!

    We hit happy hour and thought the sangria was a bit weak. The food MORE THAN made up for it, though!! Tacos as an appetizer and paella as the main: we thought we’d died and gone to Heaven! Our leftover paella even provided another meal. Eat here!!

    Thank you MXDC for a lovely experience!! All the dishes were amazing and unique. They put a modern twist on many classics. The margaritas and mezcal cocktails were very good. The cucumber Paloma was very refreshing. The staff were all very friendly as well starting from the moment we walked in. We will back next time we visit DC!!

    Amazing Mexican restaurant with a great tequila selection. Bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had a dinner reservation but we decided to stay at the bar because we were having such a great time. The food was excellent too and we recommend trying the lobster guacamole and the queso.

    Horrible experience at MXDC. We were told it was fantastic and it was the opposite for my daughter and I. I will not ever go back to this restaurant again. They sat us in the corner, in the lower lever, by the waiter/waitress stand where they dropped off their dishes. They constantly bumped into my daughters chair. I ordered the fish, black beans, and rice. The fish was loaded with bones and after only pointing it out to the waiter several times did they take it off my bill. Again, my whole experience there was awful.

    Went for dinner and drinks before a show at the Warner. Great location just a quick 2 blocks away. First time going to MXDC and would go back. The drinks were good, the food was tasty, but the only reason am taking the time to write a review is because our server Javier Z really did a great job. He provided excellent recommendations, was attentive without being overbearing, and overall provided good service.

    I would recommend this restaurant for good food, good service, very pleasant atmosphere and reasonable prices!!! Went on a Friday evening. We were, thankfully, not greeted by a wall of noise. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Had the chili relleno stuffed with lots of veggies in a roasted pepper along with black beans and rice. The chili was deep fried but not overcome with breading and too much cheese. Will definitely return.
