We love Maria's. Someone needs to tell the female bartender to be friendlier and more attentive. Someone else besides us must have noticed this. We still give her a 20% tip but shouldn't. Everything else is wonderful.

The food is good, but not fantastic. The salsa is a bit to sweet for my taste, could have used a little kick. The guac. was really good and the bar drinks are great. I would probably recommend drinks and apps. more than drinks and dinner. It's a nice little spot, very cute inside. The waitress on this day wasn't very attentive, even though the restaurant was not full, but I'm sure this is hit or miss and she still got a $20 tip from us, cause we are nice. The one thing that really stood out as, for lack of a better word, cheesy was that they charged us 50cents for two wedges of lime for our taco plate, not very classy given our bill was $100 for lunch. Management....throw in the limes!

I hate to write the great review this restaurant deserves because I don’t want them to become overly crowded. I've been here 3 times, and each time had a very nice meal. My favorite so far was the chicken tacos - very tasty. The chips and salsa are unusually good, and the margaritas delicious. The food always seems to be made with fresh, high quality ingredients, and the chef achieves fine Mexican results. Some of the dishes are more Californian with some Mexican influence – like the steelhead salmon I had the last time I was there, flavored with cilantro. The atmosphere is enjoyably casual, and the wait-staff is competent and attentive.
