    It was good. Description of food didn’t appear as expected. To me these were green chicken enchiladas not “Serrano” enchiladas

    Wait staff was on top of things and checked back in with us for time to time but wasn't overbearing. Food was average. I had Chicken Tinga Tacos. Hubs had Poblano Pepper. Good but not outstanding. We do love the table salsa that's served. Bought some to take home. Do you serve fajitas or did we miss them on the menu?

    Server lacked attention to us. Waited over 10 minutes for waters. Only came back once to check how we were. Left dirty dishes on our table when we ordered dessert. Bad experience, will not be back.

    We had a great dinner- 3 couples- I requested a table against a wall since my husband is hearing impaired. Although it’s a loud restaurant, the maitre d did a great job of accommodating my request. The food was delicious and service attentive. We love this restaurant and will be back.

    Waited 30min for our food. Not a busy night. Food was terrible. Their queso we usually love was not good. Water was not refilled for about a 1/2 hour until we asked. The entire staff looked miserable.

    Food and cocktails were great, and the service was excellent. I started with La Novela cocktail, which was fruity and spicy like a mango paleta candy. For dinner I had the queso fundido as an app and the herradura salmon as my main, both of which were delicious. Would definitely recommend Meso Maya!

    Service was horrendous. We ordered an appetizer and meals. The appetizer came out a few moments after our meal was delivered. Our waitress explained it was a computer error due to a new system. We said we didn’t want it so she brought us a box for us to take home $11 guacamole. We were brought a box to take it home in. We still got charged for it. We also had to beg for refills on drinks even though she was refilling other tables nearby. We also had to track someone down to get our check. Management asked us how it was and they said it is because of a new computer system. Spent over $120 on meal and drinks. I won’t be returning anytime soon.

    We had a 6:30Pm Reservation. There were plenty tables available in main dining & on patio. For some reason my husband & I were seated all the way in the back of the restaurant in the corner with a large table of about 8 adults & 4 toddlers next to us. I had a gut feeling perhaps to ask for different table but we decided to not make a fuss about. Oh my gosh!! Worst date night ever- the adults at the large table were extremely loud and we could not hear our waiter -- food & drinks were good. We felt bad for our waiter having to deal with that obnoxious table-- they let the kids throw rice all over the floor. We should have moved-- Why???? were they seating couples next to this table when other tables available???? We may/may not be back-- we only wanted an enjoyable evening.

    We arrived for our 5:45 reservation and were told that unfortunately the inside patio tables were all taken by a large party arriving later, so our only option was sidewalk seating. Needless to say this large party never materialized the entire time we were there. This coupled with slow service and lackluster food was a complete turn off for me. I ordered a short rib relleno, which was not short rib inside a relleno, but short rib with a relleno on the side. The short rib was somehow bland but also had an unpleasant flavor, which is quite an achievement when you think about it. The relleno was completely overstuffed with cheese, though I enjoyed it once I had squeezed 90% of the cheese out. My companions fared a little better with their meals. Brisket taco and pork shoulder. Honestly I’d never go back because of the weird host experience. Our reservation was extremely early. Just let us eat inside!

    Meso-Maya is alway great and everything was perfect. More of the regional music could be played to add to the ambience. The music was too low and could barely be heard, especially for a Friday evening 😱 otherwise a very exemplary dining experience.

    Really cute place. Good service, a little pricey for slightly bland food, but it hit the spot and portions were large. They had the patio windows open so it was kind of chilly inside but nice atmosphere.

    It was a nice experience. Food was good, but what we got lacked a little bit of flavor & seasoning. However, it was still edible & enjoyable. The noise level could be better as plates were getting cleaned in the background with the lovely music they played. Server was attentive along with the helpful host. Welcome greeting along with walking out of the restaurant was exceptional, a great team of people! Of course, no restaurant is perfect, but this place hits pretty close!
