It seemed they were understaffed when we arrived. Difficult to get service. Food was very good. We were in a back area that was a bit quieter than the overall restaurant. Outdoor patio looked fun.
Great food, great service
This place never disappoints. The food is delicious, the service is excellent, the location is convenient. The prices are decent. I honestly think this is the best Mexican restaurant in Dallas.
When we arrived the hostess was busy prepping the front area, and did not listen to our request. We were seated, and our server Israel P. took our order. But Israel took the time to talk to us and listened. Adjustments were made and the family dining experience was elevated. Excellent job Israel!
Way too loud. Great service.
Everything our entire table ordered was fabulous. Still trying to recreate the wonderful quest they serve! Delicious !
Waiter was rushing us and we had placed 2 orders of something off the menu that never came and when we asked about it has waiting for 15-20 minutes his response was “Oh, they didn’t tell you we ran out?” I’m sorry, who is they? You are our waiter! Food was good.
Excellent food-the guacamole is amazing!! The salsa is delicious and you will want to try the cucumber margarita!
We really enjoyed having dinner at this restaurant. The patio is so nice. The food was very good and the service was amazing. Our waiter did a fantastic job. We will be going back very soon.
Meso Maya has become a recent favorite of our. Everything we have had has been delicious and plentiful. I don't usually like smoked salsa, but theirs is to die for! Our server was friendly and attentive and made several excellent recommendations. We had the queso with brisket and the queso fundito. Even though they appetizers, they were enough to suffice for dinner. We sat in the back section and it was the perfect place to enjoy the ambiance without being overwhelmed by the energy of the front section.
Second visit and love their food!
Love this take on Mexican food. Outstanding. We WILL RETURN
Excellent food, atmosphere and service.
The food is always good but this time it was barely Luke warm when we got it. Would have been much better if it had been hot when served
Always one of our favorites, great for everyday or groups. Food is always fresh , great portions and so flavorful!
Be sure to get some queso, guacamole and the brussel sprouts! Oh, and a flaca margarita. Cheers!!
Very authentic Mexican food. Too authentic for our taste. Even non-spicy tacos were too spicy for my wife to eat. Her black beans were not fully cooked. Flour tortillas were not an option of some to corn tortillas. They did not have Pico de Gallo. My shrimp dish was good, but the shrimp were too small.
Have been to the Plano location but wanted to try downtown - wasn't disappointed in the original Meso Maya.
My husband and I rode the T&P train from Fort Worth to Victory Station and walked from
there to the Meso Maya on McKinney in downtown Dallas. We were going to see a show at
the Dallas Fair Park Music Hall later in the evening. I had called earlier in the day to
make a reservation and to request a quiet, cozy corner table for our "date night" in the
big city. When we arrived at Meso Maya, they had a nice, quiet corner table ready for us, and our wonderful dining experience began. Israel was our waiter and he was AWESOME! We started with drinks (I had Sangria, my hubby a cold beer) and guacamole. For an entree, we shared the Carne Asada and a small bowl of Pozole Verde Soup. OMG---that soup was absolutely delicious---it was so good that I didn't want to share it! The carne asada meat was juicy, tender, and flavorful---it melted in our mouths (we had it cooked medium well), and the sweet cream corn tamale that came with it was one of the best things we've ever tasted! I need that recipe! Then, we finished off our meal with the flan served with strawberries and a cream cheese whipped topping. It was perfection! With our dessert, we had another drink---beer for
him and a Mexican martini for me which was very tasty and strong. YUM! We had never been to a Meso Maya before and we were extremely impressed with everything about the place. We will definitely go there again the next time we're in Dallas!
One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Dallas! Always a go-to
Excellent service. Excellent food. Great place to go for a coworkers final lunch with the company!
Oliver our server was top notch!!! We are from out of town, and really wanted to experience local food. Oliver gave us the recommendations on our dinner, the reason why he and the chef recommended it, and the story behind each dish. Needless to say, probably the best dining experience we have had in a while!!!
I had a newer waiter and defiantly lacked in proper communication. He was all over the place. The staff seemed stretched out. This is not what I’m use too. I was in the food industry for almost 13 years, it’s different everyday. Each shift is different. You can’t plan call offs but you can choose to close a section or 2 just to make sure your servers aren’t overwhelmed and can give great customer service. Not an ideal scene for a Sunday morning but at the end of the day you have to do what you have to do so customer service isn’t lacking.
The food was great, however our experience was marred by the fact that we had to wait for 45 min in spite of having a reservation. obviously popular but then you need to honor reservations, 5-10 min here and there is not a big deal but 45 min wait is not ok, esp when you are traveling from out of town with young kids who fell asleep by the time we got a table 😣
Overall food and drinks were good, but we were seating 30 minutes after our reservation which was frustrating. We had to change our plans after dinner since we were seating so late.
Much too loud and busy. Not an enjoyable meal.
Downtown location quieter upstairs, very convenient to arts district, takes reservation s.
The food was delicious and our server Tito was amazing. Highly recommend
Server Gabriel was super knowledgeable about the menu and drinks. He was very nice and sweet. Manager came to our table making sure we were happy with the service and YES, we were! Highly recommend this place!
Besides sitting between 2 loud tables everything was EXCELLENT! The food the drinks the service just wonderful!!!!!
Delicious, interesting menu and good bartender. Noise level high in main dining room so for conversation, other room best. One of our favorite casual dining spots
Went for a 25th Birthday lunch and could not have been happier! It was our first time in Dallas and went here based on reviews. Manager heard it was our first time and brought us corn tortilla samples. Our waiter gave us his HONEST opinion on menu items and drinks. Will return if back in the area!
Excellent food. The waiter really knew his stuff, and was great with the recommendations.
Great as always to bring clients for dinner and drinks. Highly recommend to everyone!!!
Food was awesome, its been a couple of years since i was in dallas and this was one of the restaurants that i had to go back to. The food did not disappoint
Everything is great about this restraunt: food, service, atmosphere. Very loud and energetic though.
Delicious food with great service. Authentic Mexican flavors with a gourmet twist. Exceptional quality of food and drinks. Our waiter Oliver was very attentive and gave us great recommendations on the menu.
Meso Maya was an excellent option for brunch, however, I do wish we were able to get a better seat especially since we had a reservation. We were seated directly next to a group. Additionally, we were at on of the tiny tables which, in general, aren't the best for the location since the plates are huge, there is chips and salsa, and the decor also takes up space.
I do think the dinner options were much more robust and the brunch was a bit overpriced for what it is.
I celebrated my birthday there and even though my party of 7 were not there at the time of the reservation; the staff hold the table for me and were very attentive and friendly.
The service was on point, the drinks were great, and the food was amazing. Very good experience overall.
