Diner Reviews
  • "Hard to rate a closed restaurant. Some notice would have been nice. I suggest always calling the restaurant directly. When they are open they've always been great."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "I reserved a 4 top on open table show up and they were closed!! It was a Wednesday night at 7pm. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Excellent service and really great food!Our waiter was a happy guy, which is always good. The menu had great variety, so I'll be back! Quite noisy though."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We arrived on time for our dinner to find a note on the door that said the restaurant was closed. My parents tried to have lunch there in the previous week and had the same experience. I was unable to make a reservation elsewhere because I already had a reservation at Maya's. Very disappointing"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I leave my review based on a previous trip to Maya's. We were due to return on Mother's Day and arrived to find them closed due to some type of emergency. Not cool on a holiday! Still, emergencies are just that so I will take them at their word. We did have a great meal at Amici down the street so not all was lost. As for Maya's, the enchiladas are incredible...among the best to be found in New Orleans. I'll go back over and over just for that dish!"

  • "Had a Mother's Day brunch reservation, showed up with my wife and 4 kids, and there was a handwritten sign on the door saying that they were closed. Could have used a heads up. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I made a reservation but when I got to the restaurant, they were closed for the night. No sign or notification."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Everything I read said that the place should have been open. It was not and there was no explanation."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "we tried to call and let them know we may be late. No one returned my call. We arrived on time to find the restaurant closed. There was another couple there hoping to get in early. What's the sense of taking a reservation if you aren't going to open ??"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We arrived at Mayas to find the doors locked and the place in darkness. We wre very disappointed to have to find another place to eat at the last minute on a Friday night with no reservation. There seems to have been a lack of communiation between Mayas and Opentable. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "I like Maya's a lot. The food is excellent and they always have quality service. They take reservations which I like. They have many vegetarian offerings which is great for me. Its fun trying the small plates. They also have a few outdoor tables which is the spot I generally request. Full bar and has an adequate wine selection too. "

  • "Mayas never let's us down with great food and drinks. They were having Cinco de Mayo specials so it was very noisy. Otherwise we had a great time. The main problem was our waiter. We waited over 30 minutes to receive our first drink. We had to remind him to get them. We had to go and find him to get our bill as he was sitting in the back wrapping napkins. "

  • "Everything was great, food, service and no waiting. It was a very good experience."

  • "Maya's sits on Magazine Street in the lower garden district. It is a small funky spot. It bills itself as having "nuevo latino" food. And indeed it has all kinds of Latin food (not your usual Mexican). For those who don't eat meat, it has several interesting fish dishes on the menu. We had the Seafood Paella - it was quite good and fed both of us plus enough to take home for another meal. We had a fried green tomato layered with crab appetizer which was very tasty although I like my tomatoes a bit more done. There are lots of interesting dishes on the menu. I'm eager to go back to try some more. Suggest a reservation as the restaurant got very busy after 7pm."

  • "We were looking for something different. On the positive side, the portions were very nice as were the presentations on the plates. Food was pretty good in flavor. However, service was poor. Restaurant was very slow (3 other active table) and our server was more interested in sitting at the bar looking at her phone than attending to the table. There are too many other choices in town."

  • "After a cold, wet Mardi Gras day my boyfriend and I dragged our tired selves to dinner at Mayas, which I found via OpenTable. Our spirits were instantly lifted by the charming interior and amazing drinks and appetizers. Very friendly and accommodating waitstaff as well. Our entrees were delicious -- this place has quite an extensive and unique menu. Veggie options as well as lots of dishes for omnivores. I will go back to Mayas next time I'm in New Orleans, highly recommended."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "It's one thing to be consistently great, as Maya's is. It's another thing altogether to stay open on Mardi Gras and deliver the same amazingly good, original dishes with dispatch and good cheer despite the fact that every seat in the house was taken. I'm hooked on the Nacatamal (vegetarian) and the Tamal Criollo (pork). But don't overlook the shrimp or ceviche. And everything else I've had there. Note for out-of-towners: This is NOT "New Orleans-style" food. Come here to get a break from all that Creole butter and cream and Cajun spice and duck fat. I love New Orleans cooking, but this Central- South American food is an awesome alternative."

  • "It was a few years back, that I dined at Maya's. The delicious food, ambiance and lovely service stuck in my memory. Living in Metairie, I usually enjoy neighborhood dining, however this time, I longed to enjoy another evening at Maya's. The restaurant had been on my mind; very reminiscent of New York restaurant. Thank you again for a lovely evening."

  • "My friend and I took our girlfriends for Valentines Day. Everything was great! We had a really good time."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It was our first time at Maya's and the overall experience was great. Main problem was that we chose it for Valentine's day. Service was slow but very friendly and helpful. Will definitely go back. VD is too busy at almost any restaurant unless you are the first or last late reservation."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The host was nice but clearly not a take charge person. After waiting at the host desk for what seemed an eternity, we were seated and ignored by the wait staff for 15 minutes. Small restaurant with a dozen tables and 3 waiters + bartender. We decided to walk out and spend our money at an establishment that appreciated our business. Would not recommend. Too many great options in New Orleans; no need to spoil a perfect evening by patronizing this restaurant!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Our reservation was just as promised. 5 to dine at 7:30 on a Saturday night and we were seated in 5-10 minutes. Food was good. Fresh house made guacamole was a hit. Entrees were tasty. All in all a good meal with good friends. The chopped mango salad was killer!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The food is consistently great, and the service is friendly and attentive. It's our go-to for date night. Also, on warm days it's a great place to have lunch at one of their outdoor tables."

  • "Been wanting to try, so took some out of town friends who are visiting NOLA. Went on Friday night, and the place was energetic and a bit overtaxed. Had to wait quite a while for table, even with a reservation; and bar service was very slow (a waitress said there was a private party upstairs that was also using the downstairs bar.) Really like all the small plate menu selections; and everything we ordered was very good. Will go back."

  • "Mojitos wonderful. Also recommend sople appetizers; chimichurri sea scallops, and flan caramel. Nice selection of Malbec wines also."

  • "Food was awesome! Service by Max was excellent. He was very knowledgable about the menu and helped us with our selections. We were a group of four and we all tried each other's appetizers and entrees. All were awesome. Best paella I've ever had. Slopes were appetizer special and they were so tasty. I've been to Maya's three times and have had great experience each time. Make reservations as it gets busy."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "The food was fantastic! Everyone who works there is super nice, but they act like they have never worked a day in a restaurant or bar before. The bartender was awful (very nice person) but didn't know what he was doing. He made two of our drinks wrong, and then randomly charged one of us $17 for a mixed drink. What? We got that corrected. I went with a group of 6 and we were there for 3 hours. I love slow meals, but it took forever to get anything…water…a drink… I will definitely go back, because the food was out of this world good, and the ambience is fantastic…hopefully they were just busy the night we went and overwhelmed or had new employees?"

  • "The food is a wonderful example of New Orleans dining. It is not traditional New Orleans fare but the delicate spices added to the traditional seafood makes for a delight to the palate. The crab, shrimp, avocado and mango stack appetizer always is presented with flair and is quite tasty with just the right amount of "heat" to make it interesting. ANY entrée is delicious and we have dined our way thru most of the menu with the Chilean Sea Bass, Carribean Fish and the pork becoming our absolute favorites. There is also a nice selection of handcrafted cocktails and wines by the glass. Dining here is always a pleasure."

  • "Maya's honors latinamerican cuisine in an elegant way! If you crave the sweet spices used in most Latin dishes, this is the place to go! Prices and portions equate, and dishes are served in a very elegant fashion. And the have REAL coffee!"

  • "I have been to Mayas multiple times and the food is amazing. Beautiful room with old style great service you feel like you are in Nola. I tend to eat their fish which is always fresh and their chutneys are a wonderful mix of sweet and savory. Since I visit a lot this is a place I like to come each time for a nice meal in a beautiful restaurant You cannot go wrong with this restaurant"

  • "As always, the food was outstanding. The crab-avocado-mango stack is both delicious and beautiful. The lobster and porkbelly was a unique delight. Maya's wines are selected to perfectly complement the food."

  • "I took my mother for her birthday lunch along with my teenage daughter. We all enjoyed the feel and energy of the restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was quick. It was my second time visiting this restaurant. The only thing that I have to complain about is that my bill was wrong. The waiter apologized and quickly refunded the difference. We will definitely return. We did enjoy Michael as our waiter."
