    The food wasn't very tasty (most of it was dry/lacking flavor). The tacos were served on raw, cold corn tortillas, and the "Maya Dogs" were overcooked and on dry, hard, untoasted hot dog buns. The bottomless brunch means that every item you order must come in quantities large enough for the entire table. The service was slow and we did not get the friendliest vibe. I would not recommend this restaurant for a number of reasons including the ambiance, the food and the service.

    Their Sunday brunch was a great experience. We had never been and had no food allergies, so they brought us small plates of everything on their brunch menu - it was all delicious and overall a great experience.

    Portions are all over the place. My slice of cake could feed three people but each taco was bite sized for my main course. Other than that, the food tasted amazing, drinks were excellent and service on point.

    Food is good, however small portions and expensive. Guacamole is $17 and a side portion could not even be accommodated. No chips/salsa brought to table as in most Mexican restaurants. My sister ordered a shrimp fajita for nearly $30 and there were maybe 4 small shrimps. Trendy place but there are better restaurants out there with the same ambiance and more bang for your buck.

    Great food, great deal! The portions were a little small but that's okay because it's bottomless food for 90 min, so if you're hungry order more! The carnitas and barbacoa were absolutely delicious and the corn is a can't miss! Drinks were also delicious and generous.

    We had a great meal at Maya as usual. This time we were here for Restaurant Week. We started with a Maya Margarita and their new drink a Palmera which is a delicious coconut drink. And of course guacamole! From the Restaurant Week menu we had the Octopus Tostada, Huarache, Short Rib Enchiladas and the Chocolate Flan. Everything was soooo good. Especially the Chocolate Flan. Jaime our server was professional and so friendly at the same time. Everyone is so nice here! That’s why we always come back!

    Seriously had so much fun here at their bottomless brunch. Such a great value and our server was amazing! Drinks and food kept coming and my friends and I had a blast! Definitely would recommend it to friends and hopefully come back soon! The restaurant could definitely benefit even more from playing better music. Maybe some throwback 90s/00 songs? Just a suggestion not totally required lol

    We decided to check this restaurant given some past Michelin recommendations. The place be ready on the informal and noisy side of things. The food is good, but not great. We had the house Mexican Chop Salad, pork belly, lobster tacos, and salmon. Our waiter was very nice person but not a good communicator or knowledgeable about the food choices. I had greater expectations for the restaurant.

    We were so disappointed at the restaurant because the noise level was so so loud. After sitting down, we immediately moved to another, a quieter table, we thought. After ordering our meal, we had our server (who was terrific) wrap it up to go. We couldn’t wait to leave. As of this writing we haven’t eaten our meal. I can’t emphasize enough, of how loud people were talking over each other.

    Had a great experience at Maya last night. It started at the front door with a friendly greeting and then what I would think was the best table in the house. Our server Andrew came over and took our drink order and started us off with spicy guacamole. The drinks were excellent, we especially liked the spicy cucumber margarita. All the food was delicious. The highlights were the steak fajitas, chicken enchiladas and the coconut flan dessert. Great service, food and drinks! Thank you Maya!
