The service started out slow but improved after a slow start. The pork chop was tasty but a bit tough.
The queso is fantastic.

The Hostess staff took too long to acknowledge my presence. Other than that the service we received was absolutely top notch and passionate! Our waiter loves the restaurant, the food and his patrons. It was truly one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. We were also treated especially as first time diners. They really couldn’t have done anything further to make our experience more special!
The cocktails are well thought out. The food is delicious. I️ have a feeling that you couldn’t go wrong with any choice from the menu!

We were very disappointed with the preparation of the food. We all ordered a variety of tacos- the tortillas were all very COLD so the meat inside became cold as well. My shrimp tacos did not have cabbage but lettuce and sour cream- I should have sent it back !

The food at Meso Maya is always excellent as are the house margaritas. Service is quick. It does get noisy but you can still have a conversation at your table and be heard. It is a fun place especially on Friday an Saturday nights.

Great dinner. When asking wait staff for recommendations seems like they only recommend most expensive items. Not sure if that’s standard practice or truly personal opinion.

Food was good. Service was not good. Could not get waiters attention for more tea and even when he was asked and said he would bring it, had to ask another waitress to bring it. Worst service I've had at this restaurant. Saw other tables trying to flag their wait staff with similar problem. Group of 5 and they sat us in a booth that was almost impossible to get into and out of. The booth was covered in a material that will not allow you to slide on it.
Probably will not go back unless really having a craving for the Aztec Budin.

I love Meso Maya! I think the Herradura Salmon paired with charred Brussels sprouts is outstanding! I get it every time. Everything else is delicious too! Excellent frozen margaritas. I like the central Mexican cuisine.

This was our very first visit we chose to celebrate our anniversary there, I thought it was a little to loud, you couldn't hear the person your having a conversation with. But overall we were greeted by manager with there fresh corn tortillas with guacamole, it was delicious, our server Christian M was great I like that he new the menu well and spices helped in chosing what to eat , the dessert and coffee was the best ever it was so comforting. I will be back soon with friends this time.

Meso Maya provided the perfect half way point for dinner with friends. The food, as always, was delicious. It is so nice to see options besides tacos and enchiladas on the menu. Margaritas were great. The noise level is somewhat of a damper here and makes it difficult to carry on a conversation. Service was slightly off this particular visit, but it would not keep me from going back.

First time dining at Meso Maya. Nice vibe and atmosphere. Saw families and well as groups of singles. Had the carne asada and was very flavorful. I can't remember the server's name but he was friendly and gave us some recommendations of favorite menu items. He kept a good eye on us without being obtrusive. The manager Fernando made a point to make us feel welcome on our first dining experience. Oh, and try the avacado margarita..sounds funky but was fantastic! Will come back!
