    Very good menu with varied and well done options. Wine list was surprisingly good for this type of restaurant. Everything was prepared perfectly. The waiter was extremely helpful and was not pushing us throughout the course of dinner. I think the reviews are correct. This should be a highly rated restaurant experience.

    My wife, adult daughter and i have been to Maya countless times since it opened 5 years ago and have NEVER been disappointed. The wait staff, management, bar team and even the bus boys are perfectly attentive without becoming invasive. I think I have tried every menu item and enjoyed them all. I'd never tried the filet until the last visit and it was so well prepared I may not need to visit another Chicago steakhouse again. Oh, the guacamole is not on the menu but available on request. The proprietor wont like this AND you could make a meal of the guac and complimentary chips and salsa. Heartily recommended!

    This is a restaurant that shouldn't be missed! Worth the drive out from Chicago. An amazing outdoor dinning area with level of service unparalleled to many restaurants. The sophisticated Mexican plates were perfectly done with equally impressive drink menu. Specialty drinks were fresh and each a great twist to a traditional margarita. Ambience was enjoyable and don't be afraid to bring the entire family! Price is definitely the higher end of Mexican but plates are not the typical food of most Mexican restaurants - don't expect fajitas or quesadillas here!

    This is by far the best restaurant in Oak Park. We traveled 3 hours to come to dinner here Friday night. The staff, the food, the live music, the ambiance all combined to make this a fantastic dining experience. When we lived in Oak Park, we would make a point to bring family and friends here and every time the restaurant went above and beyond our expected experience..

    Everything was excellent and our waiter was excellent once we got one. We had to wait before a asking if there was any to serve us. They seemed embarrassed and rushed to find someone. I don't know if it was because they were shorthanded and busy that this occurred but it was resolved after waiter arrived.

    The garden had a firepot and propane heaters that would have been nice if the weather turned cooler, a nice inssurance policy. In mid September they were unnecessary. Service was prompt and watchful, my glass never ran dry. Perhapsd too many choices for margutitas, delicious. Food cooking and presentation way above par. Scollops were hot and tender. The cake had 4 candles, understating the annuity.

    Maya del Sol continues to be one of my family's favorite restaurants in the Chicago area. Wonderful for brunch for the whole family, lovely and romantic for a date night, beautiful on the back patio, and always delicious. It's our go-to place to bring friends in from out of town, and everyone loves it. Get any of the ceviches. And the mussels. And the scallops. And the carne asada. And the braised beef nachos. And the calabaza rellena. And any of their specialty drinks. If Maya del Sol were open for breakfast, we'd go before work!

Got desert even though I was full..crepes cajeta are the best! The patio is great on a nice day..the price is worth the quality of food and service.

    I really enjoyed my meal here. My girl friend loved her enchiladas de pollo and she said the mole was quite good. I had the carne asada and it was prepared as I had ordered and it was delicious. Our waiter was really attentive to our needs, and even chased us down to give my the umbrella I had left behind. It was busy, but everybody looked like they were having a good time.

    I have been wanting to go to this restaurant since it opened. Finally got the chance the other day. It is only open for dinner, so that was part of the problem. The food is really delicious. We shared the plantain appetizer and it was authentic Mexican. Plantain, shredded meat and white cheese. My husband had the tilapia and he devoured it. Perfectly cooked with grilled vegetables. I had the cochinita pibil. It was served with black beans and homemade tortillas. While it was a bit salty, the beans were totally bland, so they married well. We had the dessert combination: tres leeches cake, flan, and a cheesecake with dulce de leche. All were very light and tasty. We look forward to going back.

It was my nephew's birthday and he even brought a special dessert for him! My nephew loved it all. We had such a fun time only made possible because of our gem of a waiter!

    The food is excellent -- hands down some of the best around. However, the music is too loud and the acoustics do not lend themselves to conversation. Service was spotty. After the waiter got our drinks order wrong (who would think we wanted sangria when all three of us, separately, mentioned we wanted our margaritas with salt?) he was less than pleasant and less than attentive.

    Like the title says, the food was good. Everything was tasty. Might I recommend ordering pork shoulder with the sweet potato fries to throw on your taco. As for the service, the waiter wasn't bad. He wasn't close to the worst waiter but he was also nowhere near the best. I'm weird. I judge service by the amount of times I'm given a refill. I ordered a coke. I was asked twice if I'd like a refill. The first was by a manager. He never returned to our table with my drink. The second was after we had finished dinner and declined dessert. This is when it went downhill. We waited over twenty minutes for our bill after we had declined dessert. We didn't have anything left on our table. Just plain old bad service. They weren't swamped either.
