    Just fabulous. Delicious food, the most warm and caring service, grace and generosity towards a group of women who wanted to stay past closing, and just generally a gem of a restaurant. Highly recommend Maya Bistro for all kinds of occasions.

    The food here is just wonderful. I brought my family for New Year's Eve. We had one gluten-free and one dairy free with us and Maya Bistro was able to accommodate both of them. And everyone loved what they ordered.

    Our server was great and the drinks were good. Most of my friends had the moussaka which came with beautiful salads. My only complaint was that the manti (beef stuffed pasta with a tomato and yogurt sauce) didn’t come with any sort of salad. It was very good, but got a little monotonous. Recommend that you split it and add a side.

    A wonderful place for a catch-up lunch with old friends. The service was excellent and we never felt ignored or rushed. The menu options made it difficult to choose and the portions were large enough to bring remainders home for later! Price points were good. Ambiance lovely. Didn’t sit outside but it was tempting. Parking is limited but there are ample spots a block away on a side street.

    What a find! The place is new and I do hope that they catch on. When I was there with a friend there were only a few other occupied tables. Well, it was a Tuesday lunch. But the service was excellent. Not hanging on top of us but always there when we needed them. Food was outstanding. Great portions. Not huge. Not small. Just enough to feel satisfied. Prices were normal for this kind of food. I will definitely be back.

    Two friends and I had dinner at Maya Bistro. We were served flatbread with a black olive spread. Delicious. Two of us shared the mixed grill platter for 2 – 55.00. The platter had plenty of food and it was tasty. The other person in our group got the Maya spreads trio - baba ganoush, hummus, patlican kozleme. We enjoyed the spreads on the bread. We ate a lot of bread. She also got the moussaka which she liked. Everything was well prepared - especially the meat on the platter. Over cooked meat ruins it for me. The meat was not dry at all. The cook did a wonderful job. We were there for an early dinner on a weekend so there were not many people there. The restaurant was quiet. The staff were very nice and attentive.

    As our guests said, "How nice to find a good neighborhood bistro." We consumed two orders of Chicken Shish (guests really liked it), Shrimp Tava (delicious), and Bronzino (served whole, moist, tender, delicious). Save room for Sulac (heavenly rice pudding) and Apricot Delight.

    Terrific, attentive service and unexpectedly fantastic food. The dolma were maybe the best I've ever had (don't confuse this with the Greek version, these are slightly sweetened with raisins), and the lamp chops were incredibly tender. I have three general levels of restaurant - "I won't go back", "I'll go back", and "I'll go back and bring friends"... this is definitely a "I'll go back and bring friends" restaurant... :-)
