    The chicken was good! Juicy & well cooked. The sauce on it was okay. The hot honey flatbread was way too soggy, I couldn't hold it; way too much meat. My bf really enjoyed his short rib & octopus appetizer. Otherwise tasty enough. I can see it being a good vibe in the summer.

    Overall, an absolutely lovely experience at Maya. Across the board this establishment left us elated. The service was perfect, each staff member was on top of everything. The menu was incredibly creative. Hats off to the Chef and Sous Chef. Presentation of the plates were top notch. And the quality and taste was over the moon. Each bite got better and better. The octopus is the best I have come across, by far. The liquor and wine choices were not only excellent, but the house cocktails were mixology at its finest. The ambiance and warmth the restaurant holds, was my favorite. A laid back, yet elegant and romantic feel. Don’t miss out on this experience. Maya made a beautiful first impression and we will surely be back.

    They skipped over a portion of the dinner and once the dinner was over said that the new years eve party was private and that we needed a room key to get up there.. I will never go back because of the false advertisement

    New Year tasting menu was not well thought out, both the regular and vegetarian prefix dishes were well presented but lacked flavors, authenticity to any cuisine. Except the desert course everything was just put together not "Paired". Loved the staff, service and overall idea of New Year Prefix but execution failed very badly.

    Find another restaurant in Pier Village or go hungry. This dinner was an expensive fail at almost $80/person We had seven guests and we were the only table in the entire restaurant. The waiter and bartender were fine and did their jobs. Everything else was a disaster. Three meals were good (2 salmon and a lamb chop). Two meals (short ribs) were so over-seasoned the guests barely touched them. The last two were the Eggplant and these were burnt to a crisp (and not just a little overdone). These should not have been served. This was a birthday dinner and we didn't want to send the meals back or make a fuss in front of our daughter, but those Eggplant dinners really should have been redone. The gelato and the panna cotta were delicious. The Olive Oil cake was stale.

    The setting on the boardwalk in Long Branch is beautiful and the restaurant itself is very comfortable with a nice long bar. The staff are all very nice and accommodating. We never had to wait for a refill. The food was very good - pizza, chicken, meatballs. And the live music was excellent, as good or better than what you would hear in Asbury.

    The server was lovely - pleasant and friendly. We ordered wine and waited quite a while … our apps came before the wine. (The restaurant was not crowded.) the food was good. My steak was over cooked based on how I ordered it. Tuna crudo was very good. The dessert orange, gentle flavor, panna cotta with granola was delicious. It was worth the $40.23 because it was restaurant week - regular pricing I would not pay.

    The round table we had was excellent for conversation. The lighting was good too. all 5 of us enjoyed our meals. Food pricing was reasonable, it was Restaurant Week. Interesting that draft beer was not available. A glass of wine was beyond my budget. Nevertheless I definitely recommend MAYA.

    Evening started out very bad with my reservation being canceled an hour and a half before it had been confirmed 3 times. With that said, the owner came through with a good solution. I was offered private dining in restaurant next door that was closed. Owner also offered me free appetizer and dessert to make up for reservation mishap. In the end, I was very pleased with service, and food.

    Beautiful view of the boardwalk and ocean. The service was friendly and the food was delicious. We were disappointed with the selection of local beers considering there are so many local breweries in the area. My cocktail was very strong so I couldn't finish it. We had a nice meal but it's not someplace I would run back to.

    Nice oceanfront restaurant but Food and service need improvement here. Had the meatballs and boy did they look delish but we were disappointed as they were room temp to a touch of coolness but for whatever the reason, the dishware was piping hot. We were famished so we did not send back but we did inform the server that the meatballs were not hot and she mentioned that she would let the them know (who, I don't know). The oysters were good but could have been a few degrees colder. We also had the Burrata/eggplant caponata. The burrata was very good and the eggplant was okay. Lastly we had the Cacio Pepe Tagliatelle. I've never had a cacio pepe the way it was prepared at Maya. It was saucy and it could have passed for anything coming from a jar. Not what I expected at all. We had the olive cake with supposedly blood orange gelato but they served a raspberry gelato not the blood orange gelato. Sent that back and got the blood orange but it seemed freezer burned and hard like a block of ice and nothing close to gelato. The olive cake was three small pieces of muffin with a dip in it for some jelly of sort which I informed the server that we would not have an jelly. The olive cake or muffin lacked taste, moisture and seemed to have been sitting out as they were a bit stale. The servers were nice but very slow to non-attentive. Food were brought out without any flatware or napkins to dine with and server had to be reminded. We were excited about dining at this restaurant but we were a disappointed.

    Paul was great, our host. Oysters were superb. Cacio e pepe was OK but bland. Ambience was fine. It’s an indoor-outdoor setup within a hotel. Not bad overall but not exceptional, either. As far as the restaurants accessible nearby, it’s a good choice.

    Food was good overall. The fruit salad was delicious fish was a little over cooked. My husband said the bolognese was just ok, but his Mediterranean salad was very good. Our waitress was on top of everything and very good. The do charge you a $2 up charge for bread per person. You get two pieces each. The bread was very good, but this is the first restaurant I have been to that charges you for bread. Maybe they should not offer, but if people ask then serve and just give one piece each. Just a thought.

    Food is ok (salmon was under-seasoned); service is weak- server gave no information regarding meals or sides and basically was “ghost” at the end of the meal; no bread for the table; water is warm. Great location but bad parking and high energy, but many servers/staff milling around with nothing to do. FYI - $10 parking available in a gravel lot past the restaurant. Found that out after the fact!

    Service was horrendous, you keep waiting for the waitress for a long time. Even worse she sees you're calling her but she does't come. She took my drink while I wasn't paying attention and she never even asked if I want another one (she took while eating apps early on) and when I told her, she said she didn't know, well thats why you should ask when you are picking it up and you don't pick it up without asking. Couple of decent apps but the main entrees were below average at best. The fillet mignon was well done when I asked for medium and my daughters Salmon was horrible.
