The food was very very good. Dessert (chocolate mousse) was amazing. Service was excellent. Even the drinks were perfect. We will be back.

Great ambience and patio. Everyone was friendly, but the service was very slow and our food took a long time to come out. We just order tacos and it wasn’t busy until after we had been there awhile. Will probably try again to see how the second experience goes.

We absolutely love Maya. It’s a go-to neighborhood restaurant for us. I have to say that service has always been amazing...but something was up on Sunday. Maybe short-staffed?

I love this place! Food is exceptional, albeit a bit pricey, but worth it. And if the weather is good and you can sit outside? Amazing outdoor area.

The manager is very present, and stops by all tables to check in, which shows the level of caring that Maya has in both their staff and product.

I have thoroughly enjoyed and sent many people to Maya Del Sol over the years. We went there for Cinco de Mayo which may have been a mistake. The place was quite crowded, which we expected. We had made a reservation days in advance which was good - we were given an outdoor table right away. A special menu had been prepared which was understandable. Unfortunately the fish tacos which I love and always recommend to others were tiny and lacking much flavor. Hopefully this was just what had been prepared for the day. The other thing we noticed, given the bright sunny day, is how overly "loved" the restaurant has become. It is badly in need to maintenance and freshening up. Hopefully that will come. Otherwise, it is still one of my favorite Oak Park restaurants.

This is an amazing restaurant, the patio is wonderful and most often...the service is good. Unfortunately, the day we were there the service was off. The restaurant was clearly overwhelmed with large parties and the service was spotty at best. It took a very long time for us to have our order taken, drinks delivered and appetizers served. Once the guac arrived, there were no chips! Another 10-15 minutes passed with waiters serving chips to all around us, but not to our table.

The lunch was far behind and ordering dessert was a folly. We discovered what we ordered was sold out after waiting for it long after the coffee was cold.

This lunch was a miss, however, previous meals have been great. We'll cut them some slack this time, but have higher expectations for our return meal.

Server was extremely gracious and was attentive yet patient. We were there with a friend who we hadn’t seen in a number of years and Naomi went out of her way to make sure we didn’t feel rushed at all so we could visit. Food was great as usual and we sat in the outdoor patio area, which is always delightful. Staff came by offering blankets as the evening got chillier, which was a nice touch. Overall a lovely evening.

While the food was delicious, I felt the portions small for a brunch.
The server only stopped by the table once after we were served and I had to ask the person clearing the table next to us for a refill of coffee.
I would call the sound level noisy rather than energetic .

While this was our third time there because of gift cards, I still wonder what all the fuss is about.

The food and drinks were great! What I was MOST impressed with , however, was the professionalism and friendliness of the manager that evening. I wish I got his name. I had dinner with a girlfriend , and the time got away from us - the manager on 4/26 was so kind about letting us stay after hours to finish our conversation indoor as the staff cleaned up and prepared for the next day. That’s rare to find these days , so we really appreciated this.

We would go back for just their black bean soup!! So good that the 4 of us are going to try to replicate (unless they want to share the secret). Everything we ordered was delicious - from the queso fundido to the fish tacos. The margaritas are made in the proper way, not overly sweet, not overly salty and pure ingredients, no mix here!

It's been a few years since we've been there but we won't wait long for the next time....

This is probably Oak Park's best outdoor dining area. The patio was open and they had the heaters on but I still was too cold so we asked to move inside. The room we moved into was really quiet and nice. I had the blackened fish tacos and wanted them to be a bit more spicy but they were good! My date had the steak tacos and he let me try one: excellent.

Went a couple years ago for Mother’s Day brunch and we were excited to try it again for Easter brunch. Food was good but not like we remembered and options had changed a bit. Dessert selection was pretty weak for the price of the meal, no mousse like before which I was hoping for. We have reservations for Mother’s Day but I think we will be looking to try another place.

I brought my husband here for his birthday and upon arrival, the staff at the host table was SO friendly! They even read the note on my reservation and wished my husband a happy birthday. No other restaurant has ever really done that so it was really nice to see they pay attention to detail. They got us a really nice booth for the occasion. The food and service were wonderful! Great place for a special occasion, highly recommend.

The food is so unique that it's worth the little extra cost. But, I've decided that next time, I'll just get an appetizer and go crazy with the chips and salsa..... because they have the BEST salsa around! The full size nacho plate is more than enough for a meal anyway.
