    I never really write reviews. I do if I love a place, like really love, or if I’m disappointed. This was my Second time going. Loved it the first time. Will most likely not go back, even though the food is pretty good. Service wasn’t great, not sure if they were low staffed, but we were never checked on. Food was forgotten, (yes it was taken off the check luckily) we had to ask for water numerous times. Hot chocolate had NO chocolate it in - it was just steamed milk. In both of the hot chocolates we ordered. 🤷‍♀️

    I always love brunch there and their Presidents' Day brunch was no different. We came a bit later and they did tell us wherever we sit down is when our 90 minutes would start. Some of our part came late and they told us again and we accepted despite the remaining party being ten minutes late, we still appreciated the constant reminders, they didn't want to take away time for us which was understandable. Our server was enthusiastic and relatable and the drink and food were always coming. we did come later but they didn't kick us out until way after 90 mins. Mind you if they asked us to leave we would've! We got our 90 minutes and then some. We got great recommendations and wonderful food, I'll always recommend their brunch.

    First time I’ve ever been to a place that offers unlimited drinks and food for brunch. The food is amazing. You can pick and choose what meals you want to try and then you can eat however much you want. The meals are tapas style so they’re small BUT with all the choices you will leave there happy and full . Definitely recommend and I will definitely be returning again for brunch!!!!

    The food was good although we felt a bit expensive for what it was. The tuna tostadas were old. (To be fair, we forgot to tell the waiter because we were in midst of wonderful family reunion.) We ordered 4… so we knew it was the whole batch. The pork birria was really good and the street corn amazing. Waiter was fun and nice.

    The waitress had a little bit of an attitude and seemed annoyed when we asked any questions. She really wasn’t that friendly and didn’t smile until she gave us the bill at the end of the night.

    Still my top recommendation for a group brunch in the city. Yummy plates, enough variety that everyone leaves satisfied, and a thoughtful distinction between bottomless brunch and bottomless brunch + drinks. MAYA creates a space where inviting a mixed crowd is a seamless experience, and no one feels left out.

    I'm not sure if there is a new owner, but the food was not nearly as good as it was in the past. I work in the area, so I've been here several times and the food was very bland this time around.

    We arrived before the crowd. We waited a really long time before we were even offered water and given menus. One of the people in our party was a vegetarian. Their solution for this was not very creative. Instead of plating 2 meat dishes with a vegetarian option, we received alternatives which didn't allow the meat eaters to experience the range of options. We found the food just fine. Just not exceptional. I was hoping this was going to be a new go-to brunch spot for us but we'll pass.
    Maya - New YorkResponded on February 2, 2024
    Hi Barbara, we want to extend our sincerest apologies for not living up to the level of service and culinary creativity we hold ourselves to, especially during your recent visit to Maya. Waiting for menus and water is not the welcome we aim to provide. We will ensure prompt, attentive service from the moment our guests arrive, regardless of the time or crowd. We take pride in embracing diverse dietary needs and regret that we missed the mark in offering your party a balanced and creative dining experience. Our goal is to present dishes that delight all members of a group equally, with enough variety to satisfy different tastes. It is our hope you reconsider and give us another try!

    Very loud music. That’s the first thought I had when I walked in. It was like being in a lounge or club. Went for bottomless brunch. Food (served family style) was delicious. Churros were delicious. Had vegetarian options and the server asked us about any allergies. Server was friendly, professional, informative; however he had to yell over the noise to be heard. He gave us extra items that we didn’t order. I guess that’s standard. Seems a bit wasteful but it can also be viewed as generous. Drinks were tasty and strong enough. Waiter kept offering alcoholic beverages but not enough water. We had to keep asking for water refills. Location is easy to get to by train or subway. One person on my team actually found street parking pretty easily across the street.

    Great tacos—especially the veggie Tacos de Hongos. Great tequila selection. Kind server…BUT…we ordered Mexican street corn…& it never came until after our tacos had been cleared & we reminded the server. Also, my husband ordered a reposado, What arrived looked like a blanco. He asked the server if this was the reposado. She said yes. When the bill came, we were charged for the blanco.
    Maya - New YorkResponded on January 22, 2024

Your feedback is greatly appreciated as it helps us improve our service. We have addressed this issue with our team to ensure it doesn't happen again.

    We found Maya googling for Mexican restaurant upper east side, I had no idea what to expect. It was amazing! Such delicious, fresh food. I had salmon with a wonderful sauce, served on a pile of street corn with small sweet kernels. Also had A side of plantains carmelized to perfection. Dessert-vanilla ice cream with pecans and a runny caramel sauce was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was quick and attentive with spot on suggestions.
