We had business meal with one of my co-workers from Japan. Fantastic food and vibe, however service was not at the high point. They had been very busy on Wednesday night and couldn’t pay attention to all customers. But I still recommend the place, it’s worth to try

They were over booked even though we'd made a reservation a week in advance so we started our unlimited food and drinks late. We only ended up with about 45 minutes of service at our table as brunch ends at 4 on the DOT. They tried to be accommodating by giving us drinks as we waited. That was a noteworthy attempt to keep us happy. The drinks didn't flow while we waited but I appreciated the attempt to rectify the situation.

Maya is amazing for large parties! We were 8 guests (including my 1 year old) and our server was extremely patient and attentive. There were a other few babies in house with ours included which was nice to know they were comfortable with strollers. The restaurant is gorgeous, the decor was cozy and stylish. Our server recommended so many great dishes and drinks. We enjoyed everything! I will definitely be back for date night! Thank you so much to this amazing staff and company.

This was our second year in a row visiting Maya on NYE. It was the same great food and service, just quieter. The staff was very apologetic that it was not more happening. We were happy with the level of excitement, it was just right.

Maya is a great place for good food, drinks and service. The Saturday Sunday brunch is a great value but can be extremely loud.

Delicious food and quick service. Very dark lighting. Will go again for a special occasion due to the high prices

I had a positive experience. I like the variety and style of the small plates. I went as a first date and we were able to hear each other and have a good time together. The waitress did not bring my last drink before the 2 hour unlimited brunch ended, though.

Nice menu especially for people who are gluten free (we had some in our party), but no “kids menu” and the prices charged for kid-friendly food (cheese quesadilla or modified menu tacos) was quite high. But the service was good and the drinks and food were both tasty, just not a lot of it for the price.

Food was terrible. The lamb tacos were the only good plates. The drinks were good and volume very loud.

We were three on a busy Friday night during the holidays, so the restaurant was quite loud and we sat in front of the open door which was rather drafty, but the food and service was top notch!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
