    This is a very good restaurant, but has stiff competition with Sirena and Salt nearby. Service was very good, but could use a little fine tuning. Food was excellent (lamb chops!). Curious how this turns out in a few months.

    None of us really liked the food. My wife was able to get a refund. Not sure what they are trying to be. Name of the restaurant makes you think Mexican by food is quasi Italian. I had a salmon dish that had the skin on top crusted and made to look editable. One bite and almost gagged. My wife had mushroom pasta in some kind of pea sauce. She had a few bites but could not eat since it was horrible My daughter had the half chicken which was ok. My other daughter had pasta bolognese. She did like it and ate all the food. The desert menu look gross with things like a cake made of olive oil. We skipped dessert.

    MayaResponded 1 day agoHello John, Thank you for your review! We would love to invite you back to our property to join us at Branch Cantina our Mexican Restaurant next door to Maya. We apologize for the confusion, our hosts do their best to guide guests with knowledge of our menu being inspired by flavors of the Mediterranean coastlines.

    This is a new place taking over a restaurant that closed in the Wave Resort, Long Branch NJ. The vibe is sexy, and comfortable. Seating is spacious with sliding glass doors that can open and create an even larger eating area. They have outdoor dining with a bar and and separate lounging areas for groups. They had entertainment that was excellent. The food is limited but very delicious. Mediterranean flair.

    We celebrated our daughter’s 30th birthday at Maya. The food, service, and ambiance was fantastic. We’re local and look forward to coming back. I do wish there were more app/main course selections but what we had (ribeye and lamb) were delicious!

    For a new restaurant trying to impress the locals, I'd have to say that my guest and i who both have places in PV this was not a good first impression. We had to move our seats three times due to water showering on us from pool above. Charging for bread. Overpriced and underwhelming. Manager aware of issues. Not even a comp for a drink offered. We will try again in the future bc would love for this restaurant to succeed. Try better to acknowledge critiques.

    This was our first experience @ Maya, and we were not disappointed. The food was superb, and all the waitresses and waiters could not have been more friendly. The ambiance was energetic, as the outdoor musician playing guitar was fantastic. The warm breeze from outside coming in was very relaxing. My wife and I will definitely recommend this fantastic new restaurant, and can't wait to come back again.

    MayaResponded on June 17, 2022Hello Henry, My name is Ana the manager at Maya, we are thrilled to hear that you and your wife enjoyed your dining experience!

    This is the second time I have been to Maya since it opened. And the second time is as good as the first. Can't recommend this place enough. We had a party of nine and everyone enjoyed their meal. Very rare that EVERYONE in a large party enjoys the meal. Great job MAYA, keep it up!!!!

    Everything about this place made you feel like you were on vacation. As two locals trying out a new spot for date night it really felt we were not in long branch. Ambiance, decor the live music the food everything about this place was a 10. Definitely coming back again soon.

    The waiter Michael was great and the setting is beautiful w/the Atlantic Ocean visible from almost every seat in the restaurant. The menu could be a bit more deep but they do everything well that we tried. We’ll definitely be back to see how this new spot evolves.

    Very pleasantly surprised with Maya the new Mediterranean restaurant at Wave resort. Awesome service, food and drinks all while sitting by the ocean! So many places have had to hike the prices up since covid and the prices are Maya are very reasonable comparatively speaking.

    This was our first time here and we will certainly be back! We had a table outside next to the boardwalk with a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. Jeff, our server, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. He explained the set-up of the restaurant, the menu and it’s culinary background. Every item he recommended was excellent!
