Houston >Mi Luna
“The atmosphere is great but they music is a little loud you have to practically scream to hear the people you are with.”
“Try the Merquez (Morrocan style sausage), Vieiras a la parilla (large grilled sea scallops in sherry wine sauce), and any one of the delicious desserts to top the night off.”
“drinks are way expensive and the staff has a horrible attitude and if i didn't know any better, i'd say they were RACIST.”
“Bad service, bad food, good drinks”
“The atmosphere is great--the place is always packed with a diverse crowd, a place to be seen.”
“All in all a good place, just hope you get a different waiter than we got!”
“My wife and I liked everything that we tried and cannot wait to go back.”
“Now I use to work as a server for 8+ years and good service means recognizing when your customers don't like something and then taking it off the bill without the customer having to ask you to do so.”
“Mi Luna is one of the staples of Rice Village, and it isn't worth a trip down there without stopping in for at least a few tapas or a glass of their awesome sangria.”
“2nd time: hostess was more interested with the bartender than the 3 groups of people waiting at the front door, bad service, great food, I waited 30 minutes for the check.”

Great atmosphere, music, good happy hr specials. Browse the long list of items on the Mi Luna tapas menu, and you know this place wants to do it right. With dishes like oxtail (one of my favorites) and at least 2 types of pulpo (octopus), Mi Luna is doing tapas with true Spanish flair. The standout dishes for me are the pulpo with potatoes, the oxtail, the patatas bravas, and the garlic marinated mushrooms. A least a couple of these can be had on the happy hour menu, where cheap eats abound at a mere $3/pop. But it's not just the food, it's the drink as well. The sangria is wonderfully fruity and if you are lucky enough to get the bartender from Miami, the mojitos are some of the best in town. Get a pitcher, drink with friends, and enjoy the live music that starts playing around 9pm on weekend nights.
Mi Luna has a great atmosphere with wonderful food. I have booked numerous corporate events at Mi Luna. It's a great location for large parties and special events.
Sucks!. The bread was at least day old (feeling it you can tell it had been sitting out a while) and the food came out WAY too quick - evidence that Chef Mike works there (the microwave). There was hardly anyone in the place and yes the music was way to loud. Also, the waiter tried to give us someone else's dish, scallops, which smelled fish; that means it was either not fresh, or it was prepared earlier and microwaved. All seafood that has been microwaved smells fishy; that's why you never doggy bag seafood from a restaurant to eat later. Also, the Pollo Croquettes were burnt on the outside and the chicken inside was dry and bland - obvious that they're old and reheated.
Mi Luna. I went their for the first time on a Saturday night. I got their around 11pm. The place is so nice and upscale. People are nice. Drink service was fast and the live band was outstanding. They played good hip latin music. I couldn't stop dancing. Not sure about their food because I didn't eat their. I highly recommended to anybody.
Tapas and Entertainment. We heve been going here often for over 7 years. The food is always very good from seafood to lamb and never takes too long. Nice selection of wines and their mojitos are excellent. Live entertainment is a plus and is usually pretty good. They even have valet parking which is a must in that area. Go try Spanish tapas!
I have been to this place 4 times and every time the food was just ok and the service was ok a little slow.
One thing I will never order was the Monkfish. Monkfish is one of my favorite fish to eat and prepare. You can say I know monkfish when I see it/eat it. I had Monkfish twice here and twice I did not get monkfish. The first time I order it with a yellow coconut sauce and they gave me a different kind of fish instead of monkfish. Most likely they gave me Tilapia and just called it monkfish.
The second time I ordered monkfish this time with a mixture of calamari, smelt, and monkfish. Again I would say they used tilapia or some other white meat fish but not monkfish. I don’t mind they sub one thing with another if they just tell me. They could say hey we are out of monkfish but you still can get that dish with tilapia or a diffrent fish. (at a reduced price). Over all the food here is just ok, the best thing they have here is not food but Sangria.
WAY TOO LOUD-HORRIBLE.
This place was such a disappointment. The music was so loud I had a sore throat from trying to scream!
And I had to pay $10 to park! Rip off! Food was just okay--service was not good--the waiter did not even know what a glass of Rose was.
I would never return. This is Rice Village? Never again.
maybe was a little loud but most clubs are
Love to dance and eat? Mi Luna is for you!
They have great live band that plays Latin music. I love to have date night with my husband there. We have several favorites with the tapas like the goat cheese and bread, also try the olive plate. Service can be pretty hit or miss- but overall not bad.
They instituted there own border tariffs.. The prices for the drinks on my unexpectedly large bill was actually entirely dependant on where in the restraunt I was physically standing when I ordered them. They really need to put down tape on the floor or something and mark those areas properly. If the bar tender/chalk board/server tells you how much a drink costs, litterally walk him or her down over to your table and ask him again. The price will change. There are unmarked zones you have to be physically standing when you order to benefit from happy hour pricing.
LOVE THEIR FOOD!. The plates are delicious and perfect for snacking on while having a drink. I always order the muscles and patatas verdes! HEAVENLY!
Looks can be deceiving . . ..
I had high expectations when I first visited Mi Luna. The menus is quite exciting, with items that blend Mediterranean, Spanish, and North African cuisines. The dining room itself is pleasant with a certain Spanish flair.
Sometimes (Fri, Sat), there is live music which can be nice if you are spending your time at the bar, but can be miserable if you are trying to enjoy dinner. When the band starts playing the acoustics provide a loud, boisterous atmosphere.
Given all these pro's I am still disappointed every time I eat there. The food is generally bland, even the exotic dishes lack proper seasoning. On top of that the service is consistently poor. Very poor. There is little coordination between the front and back of house. The hostesses do not properly manage the dining room, frequently telling customers there is a wait when empty tables are in clear sight. The wait staff seems more interested in entertaining one another rather than the patrons. They are aloof and slow. Couple that with overpriced drinks and you have a recipe for mediocre evening.
