Great food, drinks and service. Love the idea of not only unlimited drinks but also unlimited small plates. Everything was delicious and it’s nice not having to commit to one entree. Much nicer crowd then typical unlimited boozy brunch!

We had such a great time here! Maya is always my go-to for brunch. It is simply the best. I celebrated my 30th birthday and am so happy that I did. Vincent is the best!!! He was so friendly and hospitable and helped to make my birthday extra special :)

I have been a Maya fan since it opened. Now I am disappointed. The menu changed and not for the best. They had a great dish called Yucatan lobster & shrimp and that is no more. Their salmon has been tasty but now it comes with no side (delicious potato dish) but sits on a plate with nothing else. Why go back?

This is by far the best brunch deal in NYC. Make sure you make a reservation on Sundays to get a table, otherwise you can sit at the bar. Service is great and it truly is unlimited (minus the guac).

We have dined here since they opened. This used to be our favorite restaurant but we felt the quality kept declining and stopped going. It's been awhile but we were happy that the quality of food and margaritas are back. We enjoyed every bite. However, the service was really bad. The waiter only did minimum service with no friendly attitude even though the restaurant was almost empty. This is another reason we stopped going. Every time we come here, the service is getting worse and worse. We will be back one day but it can be the last if they don't improve the service.

My husband and I were on diets so did not really intend to do an "unlimited" brunch deal, but other options fell through and we we ended up at Maya while in the city to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. Maya had plenty of options that were not disastrous to our dieting, however we did have to cheat a bit in our attempt to try everything! Lovely space and helpful staff plus a an extensive variety of delicious food equaled a great way to end the weekend for us!

Maya has always had good Mexican food and it still does. There is a nice selection, however, less than there was in the past.. That should be improved.

It plain and simply is way too loud. That can be improved upon without changing the ambiance!!

Maya is usually very crowded but this Saturday it wasn’t which meant more attention for us! The service was fantastic though I wish some of the dishes from their old brunch menu were still available. Ceviche anyone??

Food was generally good as always (fajitas, tacos etc) but clearly understaffed for the crowd as service was intermittent, drinks sat dry for long periods. First time like this so will give it another shot.
