Great food, cool location! Had a great dinner to celebrate a birthday.
Must go for drinks. Food not so much. Overpriced Mexican food.
Colleagues in town from out of state. This was the perfect venue for a business lunch on the patio. Covid safe and food was great.
We had a great time at Meso Maya! The food was excellent - we ordered the Cochinita Pibil and the Pollo con Mole. Both were delicious, but the mole sauce really impressed us - it was the best we've ever had. My SO also had the Pineapple Habanero marg and said it was really good. Service was also wonderful - Alejandra was super attentive and conversational!
Great experience! We received great and attentive service. Great place to eat, food was delicious. The service was quick and the server was well informed of the menu.
The ambiance isn’t as upscale as the Preston Forest location, but it’s fine now that we know what to expect.
Great! We ended up getting the patio and they were quick and everything was delicious
Food is not that great, not sure whos writing the reviews for this place. HOWEVER, queso and drinks are pretty good.
Everything was well managed with spacing,etc. the food wS not as flavorful as our last visit several months ago.
Wonderful lunch! We will be back. The chocolate cake and Ice cream was delicious!
Food was excellent. Service was slow. Cute restaurant and decor
My entree came out slightly cold; otherwise, Meso Maya was top notch.
Good place to go eat, reminds me of some great Mexican plates I used to eat back in my country and their Mezcal Margaritas are fabulous!
Love this place. Great food. Great people. Great drinks. Too dark and tables are too close
Wonderful food as always! Fast service!
Service was slow and it was very loud. However, the food was awesome. Margaritas tasted very watered down
Diego was our server. Food and service was incredible. It was our first time and we will be back for sure!
LOVED the outdoor seating area. Perfect for a little dinner date!
Love the ambiance. Food was great. Drinks were alright but I will still go back!!
Excellent Tex-Mex did not let us DFW visitors down. We’ll be back.
Enjoyed the nice patio. Food was good and servers provided great suggestions. Service was good but we had a lot of interruptions and had to restart conversations.
The food was good staff friendly. I expected a fancier looking place by what I saw in pictures. Over all I would go again.
Enjoyed the patio with a good friend
I’ve been to Meso Maya Downtown numerous times, and I always love bringing my friends here to highlight a great spot in Dallas.
This last time was different. Our reservation was at 8:30p and we were sat quickly. The server was nice but I could tell she was flustered. We placed our drink order (5 margs) around 8:40p. Our server told me three different times the bar was swamped and we didn’t get our drinks until 9:10p (no exaggerating). The dining room was half empty, and it didn’t make sense. Who waits 30 mins for drinks on a slower night?
Finally, the nice server switched on me when I followed up and told me it’s because COVID-19 that no one wants to work there and they are short staffed. She got too close to my face for my comfort when she explained this. No manager ever visited our table the entire evening. This is a sign that maybe management is not worried about patrons.
Oh well, I understand her frustration however it was obvious the dinner would be very uncomfortable for me and my friends.
We got seated outside and never got a waiter after we got up repeatedly asking for a waiter or even some drinks. They kept saying they’d come out in a few walked out after 30 mins
Only complaint is regarding our server who seemed to be in a bad mood and gave us mediocre service. We were sat outside and wondered if we’d been forgotten as our table had yet to be offered any water.
Waitress was sweet and great brunch drink special
Staff and management are terrific. The food was fantastic.
We appreciated that the Server was willing to make recommendations as we'd never been to the location. The waters were kept full and the signature cocktails were delicious. The food was served only lukewarm and the restaurant was freezing.
The drinks were very good and we were taken to our seats in a timely fashion. However, I ordered ceviche only to be told they were out of ceviche. Which is fine, however, I then ordered salad with shrimp on top and no dressing. When I got my order there were three shrimps and dressing all over the salad.
Service was slow. Food was below average for me. I anticipated better by the ratings I reviewed. Nice place for a happy hour drinks I suppose, but was very disappointing for my birthday dinner with my girls.
Excellent and attentive wait staff. They were friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and possible modifications to the standard orders. Very clean facilities and promoted social distancing. The food fare was diverse and met the needs for all 8 of our party. The Spicy Top Shelf Margarita was perfect.
Great atmosphere, incredible margaritas, and the food is stellar
Delicious and authentic cuisine! Patio outback provided the perfect setting and atmosphere for a great dining experience all around. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
Dope spot to eat with excellent service and the drinks from the bar were really good
Food was great! Our waiter was really nice and helpful it was our first time there. We sat outside and loved the ambient and the lighting outside. Definitely coming back when we visit Dallas.
Great authentic mexican food - great service for good price
Wonderful service and food was amazing!
I live in Houston but when visiting Dallas, we try to eat a meal here. We love the chip and salsa. The entrees are interesting and delicious.
