In town to visit my son at college. Wanted to get him a good meal away from local fast food that he is accustomed to. We started off with a mix n match taco trio. These were fantastic. They were short rib, pork shoulder and chicken. Excellent authentic flavors. We felt like we were back in Mexico. Smoked chilies and fresh guacamole with the salsa verde was a great compliment to the soft tacos. For main course we had the paella for 2. This was also excellent; however, the portion was very large. It could have easily fed 3 or 4 people. It was served in traditional large pot tableside. The tres leches and churro desserts rounded out the meal, and they were nothing less than perfect just like our entire experience from service to ambiance to the delicious food. Todd English has outdone himself with this eatery. It is My favorite restaurant in DC by far...

Restaurant location and ambiance was great. Paella was not as tasty as the last time I was there. Was told by maître d that they now bake it which may have changed the taste. Service was absolutely horrible. However, once the maître d was informed he was very helpful & accommodating.

Great food and knowledgeable staff, but we had a light over our table flickering the whole time!! Distracting and the staff didn't seem to notice at all. But really, if a failing lightbulb is the only fault I can find, then it's a great dining experience.

We had reservations and were seated immediately. It took a while for a server to get to our table. We flagged someone down. After that, service was fine. Food was delicious. We had an assortment of tacos, guac, shrimp ceviche was awesome. All salsas were tasty. Loved the habanero relish. My husband had the chile relleno: very good and healthy not covered in cheese and baked, but filled with veggies.

I came here for a girls night dinner a few weeks ago for a girls night dinner. The margaritas are great! I had the habanero and the mango, both of which were very good. We shared two different styles of guac, one regular and one with lobster. The servings were very small, barely enough for two or three people to share so I would suggest getting a double order for a larger group. For dinner, we shared a mix of enchiladas, tacos and the chile rellano, which despite being a vegetarian dish was by far the crowd favorite. Overall a great place for an easy dinner with friends.

Server was rude. Waited a very long time for service and drink order. Offered the "Mexican" soda, but server failed to mention that those sodas were not included in the kids menu ( which included soda, just not Mexican!) those sodas were $5 a piece. Pallea was so-so, tacos nothing special and margaritas weak. Very disappointed, the ambiance was nice and looked like it was going to be a good place. Sum it up, food was so-so, overpriced and our particular male server with black hair and glasses was rude.

I like the food at MXDC but the service was sub par -- our poor waitress was simply over-whelmed. We ordered iced teas, which never arrived, and then got billed. Of course, she removed the charge but that's not the point. I felt rushed - many bus people wandering around trying to take away the guacamole and plates that we were still nibbling on. My food, while good, came out a bit cold. Lastly, this place is really loud. Its very difficult to carry on a conversation without yelling. While I like the food, the overall experience was not positive.
