Maizal is a Fine Mexican Cuisine Restaurant that attracts customers with high expectations for great cuisine and great margaritas. Its category differs from most common Mexican Restaurants in the NY as we created a restaurant that would fit perfectly in Mexico City's best neighborhoods for its varied and risky recipes and beautiful art.

    It was a cute little restaurant with outdoor seating in the back. Food was delicious. The staff was attentive but gave us space and time to catch up and talk. Would definitely go there again. Had a great time!

    It was a nice early evening we had a nice table outside and it was quiet since there was not a lot people. The food was very good & plenty on my plate. We ordered a Guac order + steak fajitas that my friend found tasty & my favorite salsa verde enchiladas was delicious as always. Service excellent & prompt. They how have bottomless Bruch try to catch up that deal, we will be back to restaurant again & again.Good Job!

    Everything about this meal was perfecto! I started off with a delicious margarita at the bar while waiting for my table. Then we had a stuffed plantain. The combination of the cheese and plantain was very good and unexpected! For dinner, I had the carne asada and my husband had the paella. The skirt steak was cooked to perfection-so tender! The paella delicious as well. Great flavor on both dishes! Then we finished up with the lava cake. Sooo good! Our server was a delight! So sweet and accommodating! They were very busy and everything was wonderful!

    This was the absolute worst food I’ve ever eaten. The steak was raw and barely cooked. They apologized and offered something else, i opted for the chicken fajitas. Once these arrived the chicken was chewy like rubber and inedible. We’ve eaten here before and while the food was never stellar it was edible. There is many other places on the north shore you can give your hard earned money for. Oh and they proceeded to charge us for all of it as well. Unless you want food you wouldn’t dream of feeding your dog, steer clear of this place

    Late dinner & drinks with a good friend.We shared guacamole, paella and a dessert and enjoyed a few drinks. The food was delicious, the skinny margaritas were strong and the flan was decent. We closed out the place and never felt rushed. After such precarious social interactions during the pandemic it was nice to feel we could be out enjoying a meal and friends again.
