Food was subpar. Soup was cold. Menu choices are very limited.
Great drinks and great food! I would highly recommend for a fun night out
Love this place. It’s always delicious and the amount of drink choices is incredible.
This restaurant should not be listed on Open Table. Using Open Table I assume some level of quality. Quality was certainly missing. We were seated by the manager who took our drink orders. When twenty minutes later they had not yet been served, I signaled to the manager who was on the phone. It turned out that he had not placed the order. That was just the beginning of a horrible evening. The drinks were the worst I have ever had and the food left much to be desired, as well. The check was inordinately high. I would never go there again and you shouldn’t either.
Extremely poor experience - was directed to small table with child-sized stools, and told all other tables (many of which were empty) were reserved. Ended up sitting at bar. Service proceeded to be sporadic/bad. No plan on ever returning.
Great ambiance for date night with tasty, inventive cocktails to boot.
Hard to find someone to get orders, didn’t provide cutlery. Drinks were excellent
It was our first time there and we will definitely go back!
The staff was so nice, drinks were art, and the food was delicious!
The portion sizes could have been larger for appetizers, as sharing was difficult. Not cheap ($15) for a small dish of guacamole and chips. The quest was very difficult to eat, as it hardened when it cooled. I’d recommend more for the cocktail options than the food.
Good food, great ambiance. The place was packed but felt comfortable. Would go again.
Really great vibe! A little on the pricey side for the drinks
Service was pretty awful. Apps and drinks took forever, waitress didn't pay much attention and entrees were brought out on top of apps.
The service was absolutely terrible and they then forced a 20% tip on our bill for a group of 4. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anybody.
The service here wasn’t great. The drinks were $16 each and they were only filled up 3/4 of the way, even after us asking to fill them up. They have almost no options for food on the menu and it’s super small portions. There were 5 girls in our party and we had to order 3 guacamole’s for each of us to have a little bit. It was way overpriced. The ambiance wasn’t horrible, but definitely not going back!
Food sucked. Street carts have better tacos Than this
Ambience would be great for a date night, if the service was not abysmal.
I ordered 3 tequilas on your menu and you didnt have them. As a teuila conniosseur. I was disappointed a Museum of Tequila would be out of teuila.
And with three couples, splittibg the check should be an option.
Since the last time we were there they severely cut down the dinner menu. Stayed for a couple of rounds of drinks and went elsewhere for dinner. Used to be our favorite taco spot.
Drinks are good ,food and servie okay one thin that I was very disappointed that they have the virjen of Guadalupe on the bathroom wall.
They seated us 50 minutes after our reserved time. It wasn’t an issue with OpenTable - we could see the reservation on their system. They simply weren’t prepared. There was no apology for our delayed seating. The food ranged from terrible (a paella that seemed to have come out of a Trader Joe’s box) to mediocre (decent meat was made mediocre by Walmart tortillas). The drinks were pretty good. They have a wide selection of mezcal. The service was otherwise okay. The bathroom featured the toilet cleaning brush in a plastic box in the middle of the floor. And hopefully no one was waiting because the door didn’t lock. Would not return.
Superb! Loved the food, service and ambiance!
Our server didn’t greet us for the first 20 minutes we were there, although she was delivering drinks and food to the tables on both sides of ours. Drinks were great, guacamole was too. The queso was over cooked causing the cheese to curdle. The tacos arrived cold, and the chicken and beef tacos were mostly gristle.
Absolutely awful! Nothing like what it used to be under the new owners. I’m so sad because that was the best and was once my favorite restaurant. The queso fundido literally had the texture of Elmer’s crazy glue that just kept getting chewier and chewier as you ate.
Mayahuel is under new ownership—do not be fooled! This is not the place it used to be. The drinks are watered down and the menu is now a very misguided mix of Mexican appetizers and middle eastern/Mediterranean entrees. Service is hilariously inept.
We were excited to hear this place was reopening but we were supremely disappointed. They need to officially change the name as everything about this place has not changed, less the interior which they left thankfully. That is about the only positive thing I can say about this place. Nothing like the old spot unfortunately.
I am going to miss this spot, what a wonderful restaurant. The drinks were inventive and delish, the food shared that luster. So sad to see them close.
Can't believe this legendary mezcal and tequila bar is closing, due to a dispute with a terrible landlord (who is threatening to open his own in the same space - don't go!).
WHAT A GEM. The tequila menu is extensive and delicious. Great for drinks and smaller shareable bites with friends. Sad it's closing in a week! Hoping they find somewhere to relocate soon.
I made another reservation for a week later. Should tell you everything you need to know :)
Intriguing atmosphere, great drinks, and a warm welcome from the owner himself. Really enjoyed the date.
Mayahuel is known both for introducing New York to artisanal agave spirits and for crafting amazing and thoughtful cocktails using those spirits as a base. The team bolstered their liquid refreshment with excellent appetizers and small plates, which put Mayahuel a few steps above a straight-up tequila bar but below a full-on restaurant experience. For me: perfect.
Unfortunately, with interest in agave now over-saturating New York, Mayahuel lost some of its uniqueness, and is scheduled to close August 8, 2017. So GET THERE QUICK. You will not be disappointed. Kudos to the team at Mayahuel for such foresight and, operationally, a great experience!
I made reservations a week ago for my wife's birthday and invited our entire family. This was done through the Open Table app. I made reservations through Open Table because the few times I had called the restaurant directly there was no answer.
Open Table confirmed my reservations and I was under the assumption that everything was in order. Our entire party arrived at the restaurant as scheduled only to find that it was closed for "employee appreciation".
This was extremely upsetting. I do not understand how I was able to make a reservation for a very special celebration when the restaurant was scheduled to be closed.
My wife and I will never return to this restaurant.
Lots and lots of mezcal choices. Cute but casual bar. I'd go here if it was date night with your boyfriend, and you wanted to experience something unique. Staff was super friendly, cocktails were delicious as well.
Late night amazing dinner, the warm salsa is incredible, ate sooooo many chips. The owner was clearly super involved and caring.
Pricy but amazing tasty and creative cocktails. Food was very good and their fantastic homemade smoked salsa was impressive.
Staff were good, food was okay. I was expecting a bigger menu, maybe including some more creative foods incorporating fresh ingredients (similar to the drinks menu). There was an odd smell on the second floor, and not a good one. Drinks - the reason we chose the place - were tasty but not potent. Overall, somewhat of a disappointment.
Good drinks great service food was eh. Very extensive booze list which is always great.
Amazing food and cocktails!! We will be back for sure!
A gem! Some of the best Mezcal coctails you'll find in NY. The bartending team (Jordan, Will, and Nicole) are true artisans when it comes to creating libations to fit your mood and taste. HIGHLY recommend!
Fantastic as always. Great place to take out of town guests if you want something unique
