Friendly, fast service, suitable for before or after theater. Place was practically empty from 7:30 until closing on a Saturday evening, makes me wonder why they bothered with a liquor license. I understand it was more popular as a BYOB. Pitcher of margaritas very weak. Food-wise, well prepared but unusual ingredients for Mexican fare, on the pricey side, and the dishes seemed over-worked. The Venezuelan restaurant a block away was hopping, with a menu of standard fare. El Maya might be better off sticking with a more traditional Mexican menu rather than the "fine-dining" approach that isn't at all what most people would expect.
