The food really was great but the service was beyond bizarre. The waiter kept jumping into our conversation which was strange as none of it really pertained to him but that's fine on its own. The real problem was feeling rushed in general even though the restaurant was at maybe 30% capacity. My friend has some pretty serious food allergies... More

I recently dined here while on a girls trip with my sister and mom. The reception staff was very nice and friendly. Our waitress, Sarah was top notch. She helped us with our menu questions and was on top of refills. Never had to ask for a refill. The food was very good. The chips were fresh and crisp. The... More

My wife and I happened on Mi Cocina as first time visitors. Very friendly staff, arrived in time to take advantage of happy hour. We began with drinks and a delicious homemade guacamole, then for dinner I had the shrimp brochettes, my wife the tilapia Veracruz; both very fresh tasting and delicious. Overall a very satisfying dinner experience.

We stopped for lunch after shopping at the mall. The restaurant was refreshingly cold on a hot day. The service was great. We loved the guacamole and chips. Everything else was average.

Since my husband and I have been dating we have been searching for a spot to beat our old spot, Pappasitoes. We were looking for great food, great drinks, great service, and wonderful atmosphere to call our "new spot". We've tried several other Mexican Restaurants, but until now, we could never agree. The Queso Blanca was excellent, the Shrimp Brochette,... More

Being first timer in Mi Cocina I was very pleased. The atmosphere (seating arrangement, tables, music) was just right. Our waiter provided a great service: knowledgeable, kind while not too pushy. Food was excellent, especially the starter and the main course. Only area for improvement is dessert selection, as it`s limited to two items. All in all, I was a... More
