    The food was good but the service was lacking. The restaurant didn’t seem that busy, and we admittedly had a larger party of 7, but we were not served any food for an hour and a half, which didn’t make sense given the small-plate style menu.

    Nice view in a great location downtown! Food was great and flavorful! Ordered the lamb sliders with goat cheese as an appetizer which was very tender and flavorful. For the entree I ordered Arroz a tumbada which was a fantastic seafood and rice dish! Très léchées for desert was wonderful. The smoked meringue on top added a delicious flavor resembling smoked marshmallows! Would recommend this restaurant!

    Christmas dinner with 4 girlfriends… we were seated promptly, drinks were delicious and service was outstanding. I love Mole sauce but don’t eat checkin. Chef was great with making up a veggie Mole dish for me. Highly recommend.

    Ate at Maya in downtown RVA for the first time this evening. So freaking delicious, and as a foodie I do NOT say that lightly. I got the Chipotle rubbed skirt steak. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned, the plantains and sauces were just the right complement to further bring out the flavors. My vegetarian friend got a taco salad and when she asked for no meat, they added roasted brussel sprouts and mushrooms that she says were delicious. We started with their standard guac which was so bright and fresh. Is downtown, but has surface lot across the street. My only issue was how cold it was in there. So bring a sweater (and I rarely get cold). Highly recommend!

    Everything was exceptional from the friendly service to the delicious food. Josue was our server. He was so genuinely kind and attentive. We ordered drinks and the queso fundido without chorizo. It was delicious, especially the crispy crunchy edges (a nice result of being baked in an iron skillet). I ordered the farm taco which were the best vegetarian tacos I have had in a long time. They were a generous mix of vegetables with delicious flavors. And the side salad was also the best salad I've had. It was a nice mix of sweet and savory with a little spice. We ended with the tres leches cake. Oh My Word! It melted in our mouths! We can't wait to return!

    Extensive drink menu—enjoyed the Belle Isle moonshine with ginger beer. The grilled cauliflower salad & charred octopus were excellent. The rice entree with shrimp, calamari & scallops had way too much rice & it was gummy. Tres leches dessert was very good.

    The fajitas were delicious. They ran out of rim salt for margaritas which was disappointing and surprising as it was a Friday night at about 8pm. The service was slow but we had a large party so we expected it to be slightly slower. Made the mistake of asking for some of the checks to be separated which from the time we asked for the checks until we got our final receipts back to sign, took ~35-40 minutes which was super frustrating. Cute place though!

    My dinner companion and I opted to share small plates and eat full salads. We were not disappointed in our decision. The grilled octopus and pork over tostones were both great, and the guacamole tipical was also quite good. The salads were great portions for our "entres." The tables in the restaurant are well spaced, affording good social distancing and easing the ability to have private conversations while one eats. The waitstaff is very attentive.

    Had never been, but was very pleasantly surprised at the beautiful & fun atmosphere that greeted us as we entered. Perfect for a fun night out. The service was great, and the food was excellent. There were 6 of us and we ordered 3 different tacos, enough for all of us to try each, and it was more food than we could eat. We’ll definitely go back!

    The water was cold and the napkins were clean. I wish I could rate the drinks, but they never came. I wish I could rate the food, but we never placed an order and after 45 minutes of no service we left. I’m not sure who the genius is that decided to book a restaurant to capacity for the same seating time, but they should be embarrassed and might want to rethink their strategy. Deceitfully allowing full reservations for theater goers (we were not) at the same time was doomed to fail. We spoke to several tables who were seated at 5:00 and still hadn’t received their food by 6:45 that was the point we decided to leave. We received no warning when we checked in at 5:50 for our 6:00 reservation that they decided to bury themselves for an obvious money grab knowing full well they couldn’t handle the volume. A few poor servers seemed to have a sense of urgency, but by in large there was either an arrogance or a complete unwillingness to admit there was a problem. As we walked out we noticed only one bartender and he was standing still talking to people seated at the bar and not even making drinks. There’s no allowance for the all too common crutch of covid and staff shortages, there’s no reason to overbook your restaurant if you don’t have the staff, that’s completely in your control.

    Maya's was packed with diners on the Friday night we went at 5:30 pm. There is a large theater across the street that had a 7 pm curtain time. We were very glad we used Open Table for our advance reservations. Our entrees (fish tacos and taco salad) were wonderful. The service was pleasant and timely, admirable under the circumstances.

    We were unable to dine there because they did not except this as a reservation. They said they had no record of our reservation for us even though I showed them this. Very disappointing because we had tickets to a show right across the street and then had to scramble to find food. We ended up finding a sandwich.
