Fuego - Maya Hotel Ratings and Reviews
The service was great my meal was unimpressive. I’m a vegetarian and chose this restaurant because of the variety of options listed on their website. Unbeknownst to me, they had a limited menu for Christmas Day. None of the entree options provided were vegetarian. The chef, however, did accommodate my dietary restrictions by making me an entree off of the menu. Unfortunately he made my least favorite dish, risotto. For $200 for two people, I expected better.
The staff was great; the food was not.
Had a disappointing family lunch this week. The restaurant was not very busy yet service was extra slow. Two of our 4 entrees were cold and coffee was cold as well. What should have been a special Christmas lunch turned out to be an expensive disappointment. We've been here for dinner several times and never had a problem. Maybe it's just not a lunch place.
I did enjoy Fuego at Hotel Maya, mostly because of the fantastic views and the wonderful musicians from Nicaragua. The atmosphere was festive and the salsa dancing and lessons added a special touch. The food however was not on the same level. The buffet was nice but my entree "the whole fish" was cold, even the rice was cold and my napkin was stained with black marks on the back, it was dirty. It was my Birthday and I did not want to complain so I let it go! I would have to give the restaurant a C. The waiter was not attentive and I did not get that I'm being taken care of feeling. I was late for my reservation, partly due to traffic but also because the signs leading to the Hotel are confusing. I ended up in the Queen Mary parking lot, took a ticket, asked for directions to Hotel Maya and went right through to the exit then I was able to turn into the parking lot for the hotel. I would still recommend Fuego as a great place to have ocean front fun, but there are a few things they need to take a look at. A dirty napkin is a review killer!
Amazing! Everything was absolutely perfect: the view and the ambiance are absolutely stunning. Our waiter was polite and helpful and the food (I had a great lobster quesadilla) was delicious. The place were you can dream of being on holidays in a tropical resort. Loved it!
Second visit, first time to meet a client for lunch during the day and it was ideal, with quiet outdoor seating, extremely attentive and friendly service and one of the best views of water and cityscape in Southern California. Located halfway between west LA and Orange County, it was also the ideal midpoint for a meeting. Food's creative and good, sort of Latino/gastropub with a Cuban twist to some dishes, and well-prepared and presented. A difficult combination to find for a waterfront restaurant. Nice place for an after meal walk along the harborfront as well, with the Queen Mary dominating the vista, along with a cruise ship if one's in the harbor. Will be back, for sure. NOTE: With the access from the 710 under major construction for harbor and bridge access, best to come via Queen Mary access road from the Long Beach downtown Convention Center area.
Had a wonderful experience during Sunday Brunch. Wait exceeded the time expected for seating but the restaurant made up for it by giving us a table with ample space for our group. The service was excellent! Ezequiel was very attentive and managed our orders in a timely fashion. He was extremely pleasant and memorable. The food was great and there are a lot of options that accompany the Brunch Entree. Your brunch includes four different drink options (alcoholic beverages) including mimosas; there's an option for bottomless mimosas as well. You will leave feeling great with the beautiful ambiance, view, and delicious food. Appetizers, Entree, and buffet were all beautifully plated and displayed. I recommend the Ceviche, Chilaquiles, Waffles, and Taco + Salad Bar. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
I made a Thanksgiving dinner reservation based on price info, good reviews, and news articles on Thanksgiving dinner from the internet. The dinner was supposed to be $38, but it turned out to be $60. When I learned this shortly before dinner, I called the manager, Derrick, who assured me he would fix the situation in my favor. When I got to the restaurant, the asst. manager told me different and the price was not adjusted. Then, the table was rickety, the live jazz music soloist was too loud and awful, the next awful surprise was an extra $3 charge for coffee. On the favorable side, the cuisine was good and the ambience wonderful. Overall, we felt like it was a bait and switch ordeal.
It's close to a crime. Fuego had perhaps the most beautiful waterfront patio of any restaurant in Long Beach. I keep returning here when I need the calming presence of the water and the warmth of a sunny afternoon. The wait staff are always pleasant and professional. The crime is the food. When I bring people here it's always with an apology/explanation about how beautiful it is, and to expect edible but pathetically mediocre food. I don't really mind the fairly high prices considering the ambiance. Everything is bland. The braised meats are dry. The produce is at the end of its freshness. The plating is functional. I recently took my nephew who ordered the Chicken Tinga sandwich, shared some guacamole, had one of my tacos, and shared a salad. We needed to have some serious conversation so the location was perfect. His comment about the food after however was "the fries were okay....". I had heard they brought on a new chef not too long ago and after a long absence was excited to see if things had improved. Same exact menu and same exact problems. This could be one of the most magical places in Long Beach. No idea why the management is embracing culinary mediocrity. I think next time I'm going to order a drink, fries, and sneak in some first-rate five dollar take-out from one of our many amazing taco joints around town.
We were staying at the hotel and didn’t really want to go anywhere. We made a reservation at the restaurant and are so glad that we did. The view was spectacular, the food was delicious, and the service was great. They surprised my girlfriend with a lovely dessert for her birthday.
Food was GREAT! Waiter was a little slow and furniture could be a little nicer/sturdier. Tables seemed flimsy and chairs were not comfortable. We spent $250 on dinner for 4 so expect a little higher quality in everything. Overall pretty great. Restaurant and ambiance was beautiful and romantic.
I loved the outdoor seating and the scenic view of Downtown Long Beach. The service was great, I highly recommend the Short Rib Dish and the desert that I received for my birthday was exceptional. I would definitely come back to celebrate for any upcoming occasion.
Excellent all around!!
Excellent service by Skyler.
However, even though I indicated we were celebrating our wedding anniversary on the reservation and acknowledged by our server and receptionist, the traditional or standard of a comp'd desert or such was not offered.
We came out to celebrate our anniversary at the Sunday Brunch. The menu selection was amazing. So many options with authentic Venezuelan flair. The chimichuri shrimp and salmon filet we're outstanding. The options for all you can eat salad and taco bar were awesome. The dessert bar was excellent though a couple of items were not great. I gave 4 stars for food because I would have wanted more breakfast choices for brunch. They had live music and dancing lessons/ entertainment but it was a little loud. You cannot beat the views at Fuego. Fantastic in the morning and even better at sunset.
This was our best experience ever at Fuego's! Our dinner companions commented that perhaps there had been a change of chefs. It was always good, but tonight's meals were excellent. Our service was efficient and most importantly, friendly. We are also grateful for the serene waterfront ambience and the beautiful harvest moon that evening.
Fuego is in a fabulous location, right on the water in Long Beach with Queen Mary in view.
The service is excellent, and the food is good. The bar service was a little off, as my husband's Manhattan was an odd drink; interestingly, the waiter knew there was a problem and replaced it with a proper one. He said something about a new bar tender.
We both ordered steaks, but next time I'll try seafood.
We also ate breakfast at Fuego, and it was excellent.
We made reservations and were seated the moment that we arrived.
The wait staff were very friendly and helpful.
The food was all brought at the same time and at the proper temperature.
We dined on the patio with a beautiful view of the Long Beach harbor.
Parking was validated.
It was a special occasion for my in-laws wedding celebration. We arrived to fuego en la maya and they had us standing in the stairs for about 4 minutes while they made sure there was a table near the ocean. Our request was a table next to the ocean. When we arrived we were giving a table 3 rows away from the ocean. The people next to our table where using inappropriate language and being very loud. We were on a table that was surrounded by 3 heaters which where really close to our backs. We asked for them to turn one off since it was really closed and they were suppose to move it away from us. We were hardly approached by a waiter. We waited about 20 minutes before they came to take our order. My brother in laws drink had a fly/Spider. My husband and I have been going here since 2011 and have never had an issue however Saturday was a disaster. I wanted to show my in-laws what a beautiful place and we had nothing but bad experience. We still left a tip and enjoyed our appetizers, drinks, entree, and dessert but i wish things would have happened differently.
