Had a great time with the family. Food was good although portions are a little smaller than your regular Mexican place. Great margaritas and the staff is super nice too. We felt very welcomed from start to finish. Manager stopped by to say hi and check on us as well. Will visit again!!!

To start of we had ceviche and guacamole (the amount served looked like tapas), the shrimp ceviche was good but their menu stated that they had a market ceviche which was the main reason I picked the restaurant. They stated that due to Covid they removed certain items from the menu, I understand that but you should have updated the website. For my meal I ordered the Mahi Mahi tacos (they looked like fish fillets that I can get in the frozen section of my local grocery market) I would say that the portion were small (more like mini tacos) the tacos were also bland. They had two sauces that they provided with the chips that I had to use on my tacos to add some flavor to the them. My friends ordered the seafood quesadilla, burritos and tamales that again they stated it was flavorless and very bland. Our waiter was friendly and very accommodating to our needs. The ambiance was quite for a Saturday night.

Man. The food is bomb. The drinks on tilt. Always one of our favorites. When it’s open we go once a week. The lobster guacamole doesn’t have much lobster these days but we are just glad they are open. Take a date. Take a mate. Take a homie. You will not be disappointed!

We ate the enchiladas, mariscada quesadilla, and traditional guacamole. Wow! It was delicious and fresh. The service was great- everything looked clean and we felt safe with the COVID protocols the restaurant had.

Made my reservation for “standard seating,” not high top. But we were seated at the high tables anyways. No worries, I just asked if we could move - but the hostess was really hesitant and that was annoying.

We moved to a regular table, but didn’t get our waitress for awhile. And at the time we sat, there was only one other party in the restaurant.

The drinks were quick and good. The spicy marg was really unique. The tacos, however, were pretty bland. And very small.

Overall it was just an okay experience.

Hadn't visited in while but MXDc is still as great as ever!!! The weather was nice so we sat at their patio. Their menu is a little reduced but they still had our favorites like the honey glaze salmon and the carne a la parrilla. They are also offering $6 margaritas all day so that was a great surprise!! Great and friendly service!!!

I took my wife here for her birthday dinner. She lived in Mexico during grad school, and absolutely loves Mexican food. It was restaurant week, so the options were fairly straightforward. The pitcher of blackberry cilantro margarita was dynamite!! The food was good, we were simply expecting more at that particular price point. A good experience nonetheless, my wife enjoyed her special day.

Excellent food and service. We love this place. But it was a bit cold and buggy ( mosquitoes). This is not our normal experience so this is definitely not the average situation. There were some loud folks at the bar watching a basketball game, and I don’t consider this to be a sports bar so would suggest turning off the tv so people can disconnect and relax.
