    Food and service was great. Even had healthy options. Rice appeared to be plain white rice, but it was quite flavorful. Drinks were mediocre.

    It was a little loud. We were in a booth against the wall and the tables in the middle of the floor felt a little too close, so it felt crowded. Food was amazing though (short rib relleno).

    As always, Meso Maya does not disappoint. I had a reservation in the middle of the lunch hours, and my guest was unavoidably delayed for 20 minutes. I let them know and offered to wait at the bar so they could have the table, but they insisted on seating me anyway. Their service and food is unequalled. Thank you!

    Sadly we were disappointed across the board. I’ve been to Meso Maya a few times before and it’s a nice treat when we want to go into the city. You have always been very pleased,but sadly not this time. Likely not our waiter’s fault as he was covering several large tables but we perhaps saw him 3x during our service and not within remote proximity of when we needed him….another margarita please!, one dish arrive stone cold, while most of the others were luke warm at best. Promised a new warmer dish by another wait staff but it never arrived. Make sure you sit downstairs. I had never been seated upstairs before but you don’t want to. You feel cut off from the vibe, even if it’s busy. It likely contributed to food being cold as well. Beyond the waiter, who was polite and apologetic, the food was disappointing and not on-par w past experiences. I would still recommend Meso Maya, but hopefully these issues get resolved.

    The food was to die for!! The service, not so great: the waiters would take forever to come by and take your order or even check on you, they would all be standing around talking to each other. Other than that, the food was excelente!

    Everything was absolutely amazing — from the moment we were seated at our table until the end of our dining experience. Our favorite appetizer, the chicken tostaditas were delicious, and I would very much recommend to order. The Pozole Verde and the Pollo Serrano Enchiladas are flavorful with each bite. My favorite cocktail is La Novela — it had the perfect blend of tequila, fresh lime, orange juice, passion fruit, and muddled Serrano! Lastly, the Pastel de Chocolate was a nice finishing touch to the end of our meal. The dark chocolate cake is not too decadent, and the ice cream is delicious when combined with the cake and fresh strawberries. On another note, I would highly recommend trying their signature Café de Olla to top off the evening. It’s a nice blend of dark roast coffee, cinnamon, Oaxacan chocolate, and shaved raw brown sugar. I hope other guests will enjoy it as much as we did, and I can’t wait to come back!

    Great food, although it came out in less than 5 minutes which which was slightly odd. This place was recommended by a good friend of ours in Arizona. Will definitely bring our family back here when in town. Server was also very quick to get us in and out as it seemed.

THE SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT SUCKS AS WELL!!!!!! This was the most racist restaurant I’ve been too in Dallas TEXAS THE FOOD WAS ALSO HORRIBLE BEING A BLACK AMERICAN FAMILY ORIGINALLY FROM DALLAS TEXAS THEY SAT THE BLACK FAMILY IN THE COLD AT THE BACK!!!!!!!! We was placed in the back of the restaurant I also had little kids and it was cold outside!!!!!! They told us that they couldn’t put the tables together but ended up coming outside to put a white/hispanic table together for them!!!!! The waitress was also RACIST!!!! He didn’t give us straws, no forks, no spoons, no nothing we was literally treated like the dog bowl that was outside!!!!! I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant to NO BLACK FAMILY THEY DO NOT LIKE US!!!!!!!!! Then I went to management and he didn’t care neither they was all in on treating us poorly PROTEST COMING REAL SOON THIS RESTAURANT NEEDS TO BE CLOSED DOWN I WILL NEVER EVER COME BACK NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
