Celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary; love to try new restaurants in the Gables area. Ordered the guacamole for appetizer, it was delicious albeit a bit watery. My wife ordered the snapper and I tried the filet mignon; excellent presentation, cooked as requested and quite tasty. Very nice, modern ambiance with excellent service. A definite recommendation; will return in the near future.

Located on the first floor of a hotel in Coral Gables is this beautifully decorated hip and modern restaurant with a lounge-like vibe and really, really excellent food. The music is bit loud but it adds a cool vibe to the ambiance. We ordered the guacamole, cauliflower, octopus, sashimi, quesadilla, roasted corn, sea bass and ended with a rich chocolate dome mousse with a side of orange ice cream. Truly all excellent dishes. The octopus stood out for its amazing flavor that included cinnamon. Not sure how they made that work but it was on point. I was accompanied by a chef whose palette is way more sophisticated than mine and agreed that the food was well prepared and tasty. The service was a tad off but our server was inexperienced and that came through. Sweet kid though! 😊
They say location is everything and unfortunately the restaurant is tucked on the side of town that does not get a lot of foot traffic. Change the location to downtown Gables and the place will be a tremendous hit!! Will definitely return. These guys know what they’re doing.

The waiter and manager were extremely nice and thoughtful, but the food was of poor quality and even margaritas were poor. It’s a shame because it’s a nice location and you can see they are struggling, but will not be going back. Would not recommend it.

Food wasn’t anything to write home about. Shrimp aguachile lacked salt and acid. Tortilla soup lacked salt and didn’t have the bold flavor normally associated with Mexican cuisine. Cauliflower and filet mignon sashimi were pretty good but they should thicken the peanut sauce for the filet and it would adhere to the protein better. Worst part was when I asked the waiter for a tequila recommendation for my spicy margarita and he suggested Tito’s vodka. 🤷🏽‍♂️

We really enjoy this restaurant. Surprisingly it wasn’t too busy on a Saturday night, which was great for us. Food is really really good. Especially octopus. Plus our server made us feel amazing.

Al llegar no había nadie en la puerta, tuvimos que esperar, la hostess estaba cantando cumpleaños en una fiesta que tenía el sitio.
Luego nos hizo esperar porque la mesa no estaba lista y el sitio estaba casi vacío. En menos de 5 minutos nos sentaron.
La música estaba muy alta.

Pedimos tacos de chorizo de camarón, estaban ricos. También tacos de pork belly, que los trajeron de último, los cancelamos y dijeron que ya estaban por salir y aún así tardaron 10min más en llegar.
El guacamole es Ok, nada del otro mundo, llegaron con unas tortillas que se sentían viejas. No crujientes no suaves, ese medio que te hace pensar que tienen tiempo.

Pedimos de plato fuerte el pargo rojo (red snapper) estaba muy rico pero sólo viene con tortillas, ningún acompañante extra y cuesta 50$.

Los cócteles muy buenos.

No se si volvería

The restaurant is beautiful & the food presentation is wonderful. Gourmet style, smaller portions. They handed out sparklers & a tequila shot to all the guests when the restaurant was full. It was a nice festive touch. The manager was very nice & came by several times to ensure all was well. Our waiter was new and a little slow, but overall a very good experience! We’ll be back with friends and/or family.

$50 whole red snapper covered with scales to pick from your mouth and with no flavor.

My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I chose this restaurant based on a couple of good reviews that I read. The experience was beyond disappointing due to extremely poor and inefficient service. After waiting for more than forty minutes, three appetizers arrived without the drink order. The server apologized profusely ensuring that the drinks were on the way. Fifteen more minutes passed and the drinks never arrived. At this point we asked if it was too complicated we could have just two glasses of champagne but he showed up with bottle of white wine and poured two glasses.
At this point we decided that we needed to ask for the check , pay for what we had and leave.
He again apologized but never brought the check.
We had to stand up and on my way out speak to the manager that apparently was aware of the situation and apologized for the inconvenience.
I must say that the three appetizers that we ordered were very tasty and the presentation was good.

Food was great but service was terrible. This was our second time dining here. First time was great and so we returned. This time we were very disappointed. Drinks took 15-20 minutes to arrive, our meals arrived at different times and then they billed us incorrectly. The manager did not show face til we had payed (twice) and were ready to leave. It’s a shame because the restaurant is beautiful and the chef works hard to produce a good meal.

Food was good but very overpriced, for example soup for $12 and dessert $14. Nothing was sensational for the price. Also menu did not list some of the ingredients in some dishes, like some kind of pig skin in the soup.
Service was very unattentive even though the place was not crowded.
I would not recommend it.

We had a fabulous meal and dining experience at Maia on Saturday night. We sat outside in the courtyard and although close to LeJeune and occasionally loud, it was very pleasant.
Our server Larry, was fabulously personable, paid attention to detail and gave honest recommendations.
We had delicious cocktails and the bar tender even came out to our table to see if we liked them.
Now to the food.. It was fabulous!! From the guacamole, tortilla soup and roasted cauliflower starters to the pork belly taco, vegan taco, tuna tostados and roast chicken dish. All were throughly enjoyed. The flavors blended beautifully and everything was delicious. My only disappointment was the tres leches bread pudding. I thought it was a bit dense and did not compare with the rest of the meal.
I highly recommend Maia and the prices were very good. You will not be disappointed.
