the service was awful. Our waiter hardly came to the table to see if we were in need of more drinks, and although we mentioned we had a show to get to, he was nowhere to be found for us to cash out in a timely manner

We ordered the tuna guacamole... wow, it was delicious and served with freshly made tortilla chips. On to our mains of two different enchiladas and the seafood relleno. Everything was fantastic, including the rice and beans and the crispy plantains. Can't wait to come back!!

Really fun bottomless brunch place. The food is good and you get unlimited tapas with the brunch special. Because this is a bottomless brunch, the margaritas are made in large batches so they arent the best ive ever had but again its a bottomless food and drink menu. What more can you ask for!

I went for brunch, an all you can eat/drink menu for $49. Good for 20-30 somethings looking to drink away for a couple of hours. For those with more discerning tastes, the drink choices were cocktails (which I don't drink but others at my table enjoyed) and flavored sparkling wine drinks (variations on mimosas). I tried a couple, none were particularly good. Even for a price, I could not get a glass of wine.

Food was generally quite good. Service was spotty because they were generally understaffed for how full the restaurant was on a Sunday afternoon. The "ambiance" was crazy noisy. Better suited to younger (than my) ears.

Maya is great, very loud though. Luckily we were seated in the back so not too noisy. Spicy margarita was delicious as were the Special Tacos. There is no Kids menu but they will modify anything on the regular menu to make it kid-friendly (ie. less spicy etc).

I always come to Maya for the brunch. Unlimited food and drinks for 2 hours is rare to find in NYC. The music is always on point and the waiters are very attentive. The guava mimosa is my go to every time I visit. One complaint is I wish the mimosas were colder. We asked for a cup of ice which they gave us and we just put some in the glass. They are so good and dont last long enough for the ice to melt anyways.

We booked the Bottomless Brunch which gives you unlimited small plates and free-flowing brunch cocktails. We were told bottomless brunch must be enjoyed by the whole table however two of the guests did not want to drink and this did not seem to be a problem. Guacamole is not included in the bottomless menu, which annoyed us as it is surely a Mexican staple! The price of $36.00 with free-flowing alcohol or $15.00 without was very reasonable but of course there are the usual taxes, tips etc.
