Good food. Very courteous. Our waiter was very patient and gave us really good recommendations. It was for an anniversary. They surprised us with a tasty dessert for the occasion.
Food is good but arrived cold to table and service was poor
My wife’s birthday this is our 4th time @ Maya and it’s always been perfect
Perfect place for my little reunion with old friends. Food, service and ambience were all fine.
Mediocre food and drinks. Slow service. Our server wasn’t very pleasant.
Definitely a great place for a good value brunch. The food tasted amazing.
Service was great and the food was yummy. I suggest doing the bottomless brunch - they have a lower price for those that don't drink so its a fair amount.
The only bad thing I have to say is that you can’t take anything Togo even if you’re bill is paid for bottomless brunch
Maya is our favorite Mexican Restaurant and we are grateful to have it within walking distance of our home. It is a favorite place for my husband and me to have a date, to gather with friends, or to celebrate an occasion. Maya's food is reliably delicious and "the vibe" a very happy one!
Service was scatterd. Had to ask for our drinks, had to ask for chips and salsa. Service seemed stretched although the restaurant was not full. Chicken Mole main course overcooked and leather,although the sauce was good.
Staff was very nice, switched our table to make sure we were comfortable, food delicious, good value
Great brunch for large parties
The Bottomless Brunch is the best Sunday you can have in NYC!
The experience and concept were worth it. The food was good but a lot of it was too cold. The drinks for bottomless were exceptional.
Great food and service!
We had the brunch. We went earlier so it was not very crowded until the brunch crowd started picking up at around 12. The food was absolutely delicious. There was a wide selection and it comes in small plate styles so everyone can taste a lot of different foods. They were super accommodating to our children who are 10 and 11. They also loved the food. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly and it was a great all-around experience. This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in New York
This is a favorite of mine in the Upper East side. My husband was in town from Panama and loves Mexican cuisine. Wait staff was very friendly and accommodating
AMAZINGGG!!! The food was soo good and the price of brunch was great. I’ll be back soon!
Great for groups and special occasions! I booked a table for 7 people during the weekend bottomless brunch special. We were seated immediately despite the line outside. The waiter came over to take drink orders while we waited for our entire party. Once everyone was seated, he confirmed that we would take, literally, a plate of each thing on the menu. Food and drinks kept
coming for 2 hours nonstop. We tried to pace ourselves...food is very good and drinks are strong! We will definitely be back.
Best skinny margaritas!!!! Thrilled to get roomy seating up front. Great food! Lovely server. I live upstairs and returning ( often) for sure!!!!
It's great that this restaurant has the unlimited brunch option for anyone who just wants to eat and drink for two straight hours. The staff wasn't pushy at all and everything was brought to the table in a timely manner.
Fun place for brunch
We were disappointed that we weren’t seated in a more cozy, romantic table since we indicated this was a special occasion dinner. Most often, designating the dinner was a birthday celebration, would have resulted in some special consideration. Didn’t happen.
Food was quite good and service was just fine. We’ll think twice about celebrating another birthday, here.
We came there specificity cause we knew it’s a restaurant of amazing chef Richard Sandoval. We are huge fans of him ! But Maya‘ food was disappointing, not flavorful, not exciting and expensive. Service was good tho!
Great food and drinks.
My first time at Maya (Feb 2019) Was Amazing!!!!! This time around it was Just Okay!
Food and drinks were great!
I was disappointed this time when we went to Maya. We had decided to have guacamole and then soup, but both dishes were placed ion the table within minutes of each other. It set a rushed tone for the entire meal and actually made me feel overwhelmed.
I am sorry to hear we were not able to provide you with desirable level of service and food expectations while dining at Maya. We pride ourselves on excellent food and service, and we did not meet those standards for your visit. We never want our guests to feel rushed or stressed while dining at Maya and I want to apologize that you were made to feel that way.

I went with some colleagues / customers after work, and everything was lovely. There was little food left on anyone's plates and the margaritas were great.
We were all disappointed with our meals. Food is very bland, portions are small, and prices way too high. The guacamole was excellent, but entrees left much to be desired. Waiter was indifferent.

The good and bad and ok.
The Bad. The drinks. Volume wise all you can drink is great deal, except the drinks are limited to pre-made sugar water mixtures with a touch of alcohol. I was on a sugar high after a few. We all asked if we could get a skinny margarita (reg margs were on the menu) and waitress said no that they were all premade. I asked if there were any drink options with no sugar or limited sugar and she said no. So we drank the regular ones and after a few it was just like we drank a few glasses of salty lime gatorade with perhaps a splash of tequila.
The good. The restaurant was pretty. And the food was very pretty.
The ok. The service was ok, waitress was running around very diligently but you could tell she was over whelmed with too many tables. The food although was pretty, was over cooked a couple of times which led to dry meat or hard eggs when they should have ran.
Dear Jessicag, I am sorry that our beverage program at brunch was a disappointment. Because of the quantity of drinks served to the high volume of brunch guests, the most effective way to server everyone is via pre-batched drinks. However, the bar tender should be able to make you a skinny margarita upon request. We pride ourselves on excellent food and service, and our team clearly let you down.

Brought out a plate of every dish, it was all delicious

One of my favorite restaurants for years. Brought our teenage children for my son’s birthday and it’s now one of their favorites as well!
Dear Sage, That is exactly what we love to hear! We are so glad that we were able to help make your son's birthday memorable and that we won over some new regulars.

Delicious food. Beautiful restaurant all around
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We truly appreciate your feedback and hope you will come back for more delicious food soon.
Great place to meet friends. Food was good as was the service. VERY NOISY. Fortunately i was sitting next to my date and not across the table.
Best customer service! Friendly staff always smiling! I’ve been visiting Since about 4 years ago. A fun environment and delicious food 🥘. My favorite place to go for brunch.
Dear Olympia, Thank you for the review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoy brunch at Maya so much, that will help to keep our staff smiling :) We hope you keep coming back and look forward to seeing you again. Warm Regards, Molly Guest Experience Team
An incredibly noisy place, even early evening on a weekday. Except for very good guacamole, the food was all quite mediocre. Servers were nice. Not recommended.
Dear JackG, I am sorry to hear that your experience at Maya was less than ideal. I am glad that the guac and service were up to our standards, but I am disappointed to hear about the quality of the rest of your meal. If you would like further discuss your experience, please email me at email@example.com m to see if there is anything we can do to give you a more positive impression of Maya.

Had everything on the menu in our 2 hour bottomless Brunch. Awesome. Definitely recommend. Great food, well worth it
