Great time. Wonderful place. Everything was fantastic!
I had an amazing birthday dinner for fifteen people ! Everything was perfect and my guests loved the food , ambience and the service . It is my favorite restaurant! 👍👍👍
BEST GUACAMOLE in the five boroughs. That’s saying a lot. I come here specifically because of it.
Best Mexican food in Queens! Maizal is always fresh, flavorful and wonderful service. We love it here.
Took my fiancé here for her birthday. The ambiance was very nice and the food and service were excellent! Awesome place to dine!
My boyfriend and I came here for dinner on NYE and it was PERFECT. The food is incredible (the shrimp on the plantain... my goodness!!! So delicious!) and I've never had a better espresso martini ANYWHERE else. The staff were all so kind and the atmosphere is perfect for dates, dinner with friends, etc. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back.
Wonderful food, great service. Will DEFINITELY come back.
Great food and margs in this cozy, festive restaurant. A great find in Astoria!
I am not giving it 5 stars because because the margarita was in watery side.
My favorite Mexican restaurant in Queens!
Greet food and drinks...service was top notch. Can’t wait to come back!!
Always tasty and great service. A perfect spot!
Wonderful little spot. Drinks are a little pricey, but the food is affordable and both are great.
Great service , our sever was attentive. And it’s a nice menu. Tortilla Soup appetizer was nice.
Great cocktails and great environment for a nice night out at a local spot.
Amazing, as always ! Highly recommend. Food delicious, must order the guacamole
Food was very good. We had brunch and I'm looking forward to returning for dinner. Service was a little slow, but we were the first customers of the day and we had a reservation. It took a while for them to ask us about drinks and we had to flag the waiter over to order food.
From the outside it looks small but once the waiter greets you he took us to a big salon, which is gorgeous. However, we were there for the food and drinks . My passion fruit margarita was very sour , I also order green enchiladas and the sauce was acidic and not tasty as other restaurants.
Arrived a little late for our reservation. They promptly seated our party of 6. We were on a bit of time crunch, I informed our server, and she expeditiously moved our meal along. The table was a little small for our party.( it was a 6 top). But no one was uncomfortable. The food came out quickly, and was delicious. The drinks were a little on the expensive side($14). But that is expected considering location. I would definitely go back to dine again.
I want to love Maizal. I have been there several times and have come away after these visits being disappointed. They posture as a "mostly gluten free" menu however I would say more than 50% is not gluten free, in particular the burritos, quesadillas and some tacos (fish). If you don't eat gluten and meat, it is quite restrictive. Ordering certain dishes, such as the Tequila Lime Fired Shrimp was sad, with 6 medium sized bland shrimp and the rest boring. The mole shrimp enchilada dish was like eating a chocolate bar, not a well made mole. To be fair, some apps are excellent - stuffed plantain and the guacamole are good examples. I wish they had better entrees to match the strength of their apps. There is no reason they can't use a gluten free flour blend and make more items available, like Nino's AQ in Astoria. Classic jalapeno margarita is also very good. Like I said, want to love them but not wowed, especially at their prices.
You do need more spanish music to feel that vibe. Our dinner was great!
Always consistent. I had the skirt steak fajitas tonight. 😋
Overall, Maizal aims to please. The food is well prepared and very tasty. They do an excellent job of making creative cocktails at fair prices. I felt the food was a little bit high in price but worth going back.
Delicious food, really enjoyed everything we ordered
This is a must try for everyone. Then a come back spot for years.
Great food but portions were a bit small. Service was great and cockails were fantastic. Late night happy hour also great for after dinner.
I’ve been here twice and it’s a very good spot for good food & drinks
Definitely some of the best Mexican food I’ve had in the Astoria area.
Good food. Good drinks (VERY slow to come out). Good service.
My server forgot my appetizer. It’s totally fine to forget but she then told me I didn’t order any when I asked about it. It’s a very basic customer service skills.
Then food was delicious and perfect.
Not much food being served for the price. Bottomless drive. Had to be the entire table (2ppl)which was the 1 person take did not drink. Overall bartender was super nice would have given more stars just because of him.
Took our grandkids and they loved it. The service was very good.
Excellent food excellent service
awesome all around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Really enjoyed the food; it hit the spot and had great flavor.
Went for causal dinner; seated and served quickly!
Food was very good (especially the guacamole). The decor is beautiful and ambiance is ideal for date nights. The only downside is that the food was significantly overpriced.
One of Astoria's best kept secrets!! Beautiful space, amazing food, superb service and out of this world chocolate martinis!!! Can't wait to go back!!
