Tequila Museo Mayahuel reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Delicious Food and Nice Service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/29/2013
    This restaurant offers unique menu items. We tried the bruchetas with chorizo, pico and oaxaca cheese. It was so tasty! Also, would recommend the poblano chile soup it is amazingly good. Even though it was a hot day for soup, we still had to have it. I had the shrimp enchiladas which were good, next time I would try one of their other signature dishes. Husband had the tilapia and really enjoyed the flavors. Nice restaurant with delicious food and friendly service.

  • Most mediocre Mexican restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/8/2013
    So much potential and it is just squandered here. There is so much opportunity to bring out the flavors of Mexican food. I would rather just go here to drink at the bar. The soup (signature) is amazing and must be consumed though, but overall just a very mediocre experience. I have more fun and better food at Chevy's if that is saying anything about the level of mediocrity we are talking about here. Hopefully the chef get's his game together and gives us something to wow us - so yes I will go back but hopefully won't be disappointed again.

    I've been here twice when visiting Sacramento and have found the service and food to be really good. Extremely friendly staff, quick delivery of drinks & food and authentic traditional Mexican flavors. My only complaint on my last visit was that the chips were somewhat stale/soggy for the salsa...not crispy with snap. A very nice tequila list makes for some contemplative sipping.

    Perfect place for lunch near the State Capitol. You can get a good meal and great service within an hour. This works well when I have clients in town with a full schedule of meetings.

    I and my date really enjoyed our dining experience at this restaurant, and I would love to revisit it next time I am in Sacramento. The night we were there, the noise level was a bit on the high side, but not unbearably so, and we had a location that allowed us to talk comfortably. Our server was great, our food arrived promptly, and we loved the drinks.

    This restaurant offered the perfect blend of atmosphere, food and service. The decor is interesting and thematic without being overdone. The cocktails list had many more intriguing options than we were able to try since we selected a mezcal tasting flight, which was served informatively and attentively. The food was notably good as well. Definitely a place for groups or date nights although it was a bit noisy inside.

    Overpriced Mexican food. They charge for chips, they charge for salsa...they charge for every single thing. No refills on my tea, either. No sides included w/ the entrees. $50 lunch for 2 w/ NO alcohol, seems pricey to us.

    We were treated as if we owned the place! They went so far as to move a table so we could begin dinning in a quiet location. The margaritas are very good the best I can recall from recent memory. However if you like your food spicy, make sure to tell your waiter.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 3/21/2013
    Overall, a nice/OK time. Came for an early dinner. Don't think hostess had checked our reservation, as we'd requested "quiet seating, if possible," and she didn't seem to have any particular table in mind for us. Had a tasty, refreshing, well made mojito. Very attentive, personable waiter. However, when ordering, distinctly inquired that even tho not listed in the menu's description, were there any bell peppers in the entree. Was assured "no." Kitchen was slow, even tho not super busy. Wnen food arrived, was warm, not hot, and had bell peppers. Ate around the peppers, but disappointed. Offered a dessert menu before given check, which we appreciated, even tho we had not planned to order any.

He had great knowledge of Tequilla which he shared as I was tasting a flight he created. Food was very creative & interesting & beautifully presented.

    The food was very good although the Guacamole was pretty tasteless. Even at 6pm on Saturday the restaurant was extremely noisy not just "energetic" even though they were not real busy. Service was great and the Margaritas were delicious. They would not allow us nor the folks at the table next to us to use our Groupons for drinks and appetizers because it was Saturday night even though their Groupon offer only ruled out using the dinner Groupon on Saturday night. Their website says to park in the Hyatt Regency Hotel garage or the garage at 10th and L yet they only validate parking for the Hyatt garage! They just don't have their stuff together so I probably won't be back even to use the Groupon I bought. Not a happy camper.

    I cant say how great this place was. Lets start with the food. I would say, with little second thought, that they had the best mex food I have had in the past decade. I cant recall anything even close. Best of best. The people there were incredibly friendly, and the hostess even found time to give us a short tour of the place before we sat down, after finding out we had never been there before! Easily, the best tequila I have had as well. I dont recall the drink, but its a lime drink that tasted wonderful and was masterfully mixed. My wife and I both left there pleased with everything. I dont visit Sacramento downtown often, but I will find my way to this place again, and might even sway my travel plans to do so. Exellent, 5*'s

    We had taco trio plates - mine, shrimp, my sweete, steak. The menu implied that the serving were generous and while not skimpy, I was not stuffed after eating all 3, plus the accompanying rice. At $15 a plate for tacos, I expect to be stuffed or have leftovers. We ordered chips and guacamole, but our entrees arrived before the chips and guacamole. Guacamole was fresh and delicious as was the salsa. We order a mango cake for dessert, along with coffee. The coffee arrived long before the dessert. Coffee should arrived with dessert or immediately after the dessert, so they can be enjoyed together and while still at the appropriate temperature.

    The food I ordered was called "Arrachera a la Tampiqueña" which consisted of a marinated flank steak paired with a chicken enchilada in a green tomatillo salsa and is served with rice. I washed it all down with a glass of their finest tequila blanco and Mayahuel Fresca De Agave margarita. The food I had was extremely delicious! As far as service, Oscar was our waiter, but there was another waiter and waitress that came by our table to fill our drinks and take our empty plates. Oscar was also working the bar but never forgot about us and made sure we were taken care of.

    Wow! Excellent food!!! Upscale Mexican cuisine. The crab-stuffed chili relleno and the pork in a green sauce were excellent. We can't wait to go back to try other items on the menu. Our server, Francisco, took great care of our needs. I was so impressed with the food and service that I took a girlfriend the next day for appetizers and drinks and she really enjoyed it as well.

  • Worst Service I've Had In Years
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 1/16/2013
    Unfortunately the service was so bad we had to leave without having our entrees. We sat and waited for almost 60 minutes without anyone acknowledging us, and this was after we waited 20 minutes for someone to do so after we first sat down. The food is probably decent, but how would we know? I don't think we'll ever go back and I wouldn't advise anyone else to give this place a try unless they're willing to be completely ignored. We weren't the only ones, either. It's a theme at the restaurant and apparently part of the culture to treat patrons that way.

  • Dine Downtown Week at Mayahuel
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/14/2013
    I dined out for the Dine Downtown Week and this was a great deal. I had the salad option, the chicken with adobo sauce and rice, and the arroz con leche. The chicken was my favorite - cooked so tender that the meat would just slide off the bone and the rice went really well with the adobo sauce. The arroz con leche was a little watery for my taste. I would get the ice cream next time. The tequila sample was a bonus!

    Went with another couple for the Dine Downtown specials. Great margaritas - strong and fresh. Chicken dish, as were the salads, a little light on portion but great flavors. Steak was rediculously large, shrimp dish was mild but tasty. Desert dissapointing - rice pudding was rice in milk w cinnamon. We ran into another couple we knew who raved about the skirt steak, alas it wasn't on the Dine Downtown menu but they were there on a Groupon. Place was loud and busy with all age groups on a Friday night. Would be fun to go back and try tequila tasting. House margarita was delish!
