Food and ambiance excellent as usual and we had a good meal. Service a bit slow and dinner for 7 brought out over a 5 minute period and not together. Overall good though.

Great meal. Waiter hovered way too much and made us feel very rushed. He returned to the table 3 times in under a few minutes trying to make us order and brought the tab the second we finished our food. The meal itself was fantastic as always.

Their chicken and mole enchiladas are amazing. I also recommend the chicken and chicharrones enchiladas. We’ve been dining here for 6 years and the service is always top notch.

Thank you for another wonderful dinner with delicious food and drinks, along with absolute superb service from Martin B and Adolpho.
Unfortunately the ambience was not the same as usual, as there was a female customer in the dining room with her laptop computer open having a facetime conversation out loud with someone while we were trying to enjoy our evening. We hope that you will stop this from happening in the future as it was very disturbing to say the least.
Thanks again

Hopefully it is a one time thing but the service was noticeably off tonight. Several times while I was reviewing the menu, the wait staff would place a glass, chips, or a plate on the menu. I would pick up the item place it on the table so I could continue to look at the menu. Sure enough they would repeat the process. I became a joke at the table. When I inquired about a cocktail order which hadn’t arrived for some time the response was “would you like me to get it for you?”. With great restraint I did NOT respond “no thanks I’ll go mix it up, pour it out, and serve myself”. Several other minor issues occurred which just made us wonder about the place. Hopefully it was just a one one night thing as the food is pretty good.

Great food, great service, and good on the table location. Our party of two was nestled between 3 sets of multi-family tables with young children. A different area of the restaurant (tables appeared to be available in ither areas) would have likely bumped the "good" rating to "excellent" and resulted in a fantastic date nite for this empty nester couple.

We will likely never return after a very disappointing visit this past week. The food was mediocre and our service was sub par; with the quantity of delicious food options in Dallas, there is no reason to risk another disappointing evening by coming back.

Our waitress must not have been trained because from the moment she approached our table we were made to feel like an inconvenience. Have no idea if they had any specials that night, never learned her name, was bothered when asked for things such as salt, more chips for our queso (after the basket had been empty for over 20 minutes), and our dirty dishes sat in front of us until we left the restaurant (she refused to get a bus boy to take them from the table when we asked if they could be cleared).

Food was cold. Soup and ceviche appetizers were served with our entrees. The ceviche was not a stand out. The soup may have been great had it not been room temperature. The pork entree that we received initially was not the one we ordered. Our dinner companions did enjoy the brisket tacos, making that the only win from our meal! They had never been there and said they will not be going back.

Hopefully Meso Maya Preston Forest will read this review so they can work on retraining their staff.

We obviously came at the wrong time.
15 minute wait for water, we were finishing the chips and salsa, before we got any.
20 minutes at least for drinks, after ordering them.
Server was pleasant but overwhelmed... not his fault as he didn't seem to have any support staff helping.
Ran out of chicken tamales, but it was busy.
Food was decent.
If we returned, we just would try to to come at a peak hour I guess

They were understaffed... we waited forever for warm bottles of beer. When dinner came the steak was both over cooked and cold (seems impossible). Not our best night at Meso Mayo. We are frequent diners, but I’m not sure we will return.
