Fantastic Mexican restaurant as far as the food - absolutely delicious. The place is very vibrant, almost distractedly so - it's hard to have a conversation without yelling, which is kind of annoying - I guess you have to be in the mood. Food makes up for it though.

It’s just me of the better Mexican restaurants we’ve tried in Manhattan. Very noisy ask for a quiet table unless you’re up for a loud party scene with no conversation in the front.

Although we LOVE Maya for the food and general ambiance, we rarely eat there because the noise level is intolerable. It is extremely difficult to carry on a conversation when you cannot hear each other. We are not hearing impaired, but the background noise at Maya swamps everything. I guess it is designed for people who prefer to text across the table instead of talking. Such a pity for an otherwise fine restaurant.

Bottomless brunch - what a great Sunday treat with friends! Our server was great, keeping the food and drinks constantly coming to the table. The tapas style was perfect for our group and by the end of the meal we were stuffed. I always worry about bottomless drinks as they usually give me a severe headache likely due to cheaper alcohol but the margaritas were delicious! The space was huge, too. I’d definitely recommend for a weekend brunch.

The bottomless drink and food deal for $50 for two hours is amazing. The food was pretty good, it came out quick. The mimosas were very good and our waiter Vicente was amazing. I will definitely be returning and recommending this place.

3rd time going. It's usually great with a large crowd. This this time just party of 2. Split the bill in half. I paid cash friend card. Service was poor, food ok took a long time, but we were still gonna leave a big tip. However, server came back with her card, not with my $8 change which was only part of the tip I was going to give, and then he never came back. I guess he assumed we weren't going to tip. Bad assumption.

Great $49 bottomless brunch for two hours (or $36 for just food) with lots of choices. The empanadas were fantastic. The Maya mimosa was my favorite. Attentive service. Definitely recommend.

I went here for brunch with my college friends who I haven’t seen in a while. The waitress explained everything on the menu, the food came out quickly, and they never let our drinks finish for the 2 hours!

Maya has gone downhill. The food was nothing special. Service and ambiance were good. It’s a shame because this used to be a really good restaurant. The food was just not what we had experienced before and was not worth the cost.

Atmosphere is terrific — service was attentive but not pushy. Food was presented beautifully but not particularly flavorful. A little bland. Ordered chicken fajitas, but very little spice to it and not grilled, almost seemed steamed, even though it may not have been. Disappointed.

Service was amazing and the food was great. Definitely one of the best brunch experiences I've had. We were a group of 20 and were a little late but the staff and management were super accommodating. The amount of food and the consistent refilling of bottomless drinks was unparalleled to any other brunch I've been too. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for great value, good food, and strong drinks.

We were a group of 9 and had the bottomless brunch. It's family style for 2 hours, and they just brought out plates with pretty much every item on the menu. The margaritas were really good and the music was great too!

Food was yummy and drinks were delicious but I found it very loud and difficult to hear friends at the other end of table. There were only six of us. Also the drinks took awhile so we weren’t able to enjoy as many as we would have liked!

Upon walking through the front door, the noise level was so high, it was difficult to check in with the hostess.
We were seated with our back to a walk and still it was so loud, we had to raise our voices and could hardly hear the waiter!
Food and cocktails were tasty and came out in a timely fashion. Service was lovely.
We won’t return unfortunately, due to the noise level, it just wasn’t relaxing!
