    Chris,our waiter, was exceptional. He helped us pick menu items that were a little less "hot" and gave us plenty of time to have drinks before ordering! 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.

    Wonderful for outdoor dining and exquisite food preparation. One problem that occurred was there were gnats and flies which I have never experienced before while dining outdoors at this lovely enterprise! Don't know what happened different to cause this annoying problem,however, thankfully it did not last the entire evening.

    Had a lovely dinner out on the patio. Waiter was outstanding, food was excellent as always. My sister was celebrating her 50th birthday, and she was given a complimentary dessert along with a dessert coffee - both of which were outstanding! Can never go wrong at Maya.

    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.

    Mike's one of the best servers I've ever had. Fun and kind, he really made our night with a great suggestion for Maya Del Sol's photo contest. Hope we win! The host also cleaned the rain off a special table for me and my date (same one we've eaten at every time). Food and drinks were stellar as usual.

    The food here is always on point. This visit, though, the service was not. Our waiter seemed more interested in the table of women with margaritas than our table of Coke products. Our bus boy ended up taking care of our table and I much preferred his gentle smile and quick response to our servers witty charm and lack of availability. No stars for service, five stars for food.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. The food and service was excellent. Our server was fast and friendly. My boyfriend had the duck breast dinner and I had the pork shoulder with rubbed coffee grounds both dishes were amazing. The cocktails have a unique spicy blend to them. They also brought out a slice of tres leches with a candle for his birthday. The manager stopped by our table and had a nice chat with us and showed us the outdoor seating area. They have an outside bar, fire pit, outdoor heaters etc. We will definitely be coming back to sit out there. We had a great time and plan on bringing some friends for our next visit.

    The food was fantastic and the service was great despite how busy they were. Our water glasses were always refilled and the staff managed to meet all of our needs without hovering. The enchiladas, fried plantains and the chocolate dessert could not be any better, it was divine. Loved the live Flamenco from Guitarra Azul also.

    The food was good. Even thought we had a reservation, they made us wait for a specific gentlemen to seat us in the patio. Then after questioning why others were being seated before us, the hostess finally sat us. Not the gentlemen we were waiting for. This was totally confusing since this gentlemen was now where to be found. The quality of the food was good. It was better in the past. We waited a long time for our entrees and filled up on chips and salsa so when our food came we were all full. I wrote on the reservation it was a special occasion, my friends birthday. This is the second time I did this for a friend and no one ever acknowledged it. This place needs more traing with it's staff as it seemed very confusing waiting on our seating

    We are big fans and come often. The weather was so good that we decided we just had to eat outside in the patio. Well, ok, no reservations for outdoor dining. But why make us wait standing while one group lingers over their check while there are several open tables capable of seating us. Usually Maya's staff are smart About these things. Sunday's host/hostess combo were pretty much over their head, just looking at each other with bewilderment and not much resourcefulness. The food was great as usual and the wait service was also good.

    Maya Del Sol has exceptional food. But on this visit, the service was not good. I shouldn't have to ask the restaurant to have a waiter come to our table several times during our visit. The order was not correct; my guest was rain-soaked and freezing (the valet did not umbrella him), and then the doggie bags were mixed up. I don't know if it was our table or not, but the noise was so loud that we could not hear each other talk.
