Excellent Mexican food. And, of course, that has to include excellent guacamole and margaritas! Skirt steak dish was really tasty.

This used to be my go to brunch place. However, the quality of the food vs price has decreased. In addition , the portion sizes are not even justifiable to charge $ 55 per person. For example, we got one fried plantain and one corn for a table of two. These are not expensive ingredients. In the past, They used to be fair, if not generous, with the portions. But now, they want to fill you up with tortilla chips and scale back on any other type of food. Rather disappointing.

I went for bottomless brunch with a friend. The bottomless food and drink brunch is both delish and cost effective. I’m very happy this place is in my neighborhood as it looks like they’ve got a great happy hour during the week. The only thing I can say was a drawback, it was very loud in there, maybe some artwork or padding on the wall could help. The lively party of young women next to us rang in our ears at times.

Nothing I had was above average. Not great Margaritas, the steak fajitas were challenging...the meat was very good but too thick to be easily chewed through with the tortillas ( which were really small). The chicken fajita was quite better. Together with the higher than average prices, I do not expect to return

The rosarita frozen rosé margarita drink was so good and definitely worth the price with how much alcohol was included in the drink. The chicken enchiladas were also amazing with fresh cheese and a wonderful sauce. The guacamole and corn were great sides for the table. I would highly recommend and definitely will be coming back.

The food and experience is great! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars it's because they had no churros like before and their churros for brunch were the best! I didn't really care for the waffles as a dessert. Bring back the churros Maya! But overall, still love this place and would recommend to anyone!

My son had been to Maya for their brunch numerous times. This was our first dinner experience. My husband, son and I, shared the queso fundido for an appetizer. It was delicious. For dinner my son had the lobster taco board, my husband and I a mixed shrimp, chicken and steak fajitas. The presentation of our dinners was very appealing, the smell Devine and the taste delicious. Our beers were served with a chilled glass and we were very happy campers!

We had a great brunch today at Maya. Our server kept the food and drinks coming. The highlights were the Maya Dogs (so good we had seconds) carnitas tacos and mini waffles. Our favorite drink was the Maya mimosa, a combination of blood orange and passion fruit yum! The staff was super friendly. A perfect place for brunch!

I went to Maya forgetting that it was brunch time, I was hoping for the regular menu. I was very pleasantly surprised. First, the ambiance is welcoming and pleasant. More importantly, the brunch menu is full of winning dishes, carefully prepared with elegant, deceptive simplicity that showcases the ingredients. The ceviche, salmon, tacos were all excellent to spectacular, and the staff seamlessly bring them at the right time without your even having to ask. At $45 for bottomless brunch (and only $10 more for bottomless cocktails), it is a ridiculous value for Manhattan, or really anywhere. Go to Maya!

we were offered a combination of two types of fajita which ended up being $6 more expansive then the individual fajita, and we were not informed about this huge price difference.
they also were successful in tricking us on the tip - what they suggested was not based on the bill split between 3 people but the overall check so we ended up giving 30% tip which they for sure did not deserve

Asked for two plates of one item (plantain, lamb taco, etc) several times but the order wasn't completed properly. Was only brought one plate each time I asked for two of one item. Probably to make sure I didn't eat too much. I made sure to state loudly: 'two.' I understand that the restaurant wants to make money but then don't offer the promotion if you're not going to fulfill the demands of the customer. At the end, I asked for two plates of lamb tacos, two plates of plantains, and two plates of waffles. Only one plate was served for each. Disappointed. Chilaquile dish is way too heavy. Should be lightened up. Tastes like microwaved fast food nachos. Enfrilojades should be hot when served. Lukewarm is not very tasty.

Went to have dinner but only ended up ordering an appetizer and margarita. After being seated I waited over 10 minutes for a waiter to take my order and after I received by starters, I received no other service until well after I finished by appetizer. What I ordered was good but disappointed with the service. Went to another restaurant for dinner.

The drinks were delicious and beautiful. Go for the Rosarita and Maya margarita. The calamari is amazing. Crispy and flavorful. The fish tacos were such a good bite. We loved the queso fundido with chorizo and the corn soup. Don’t miss the corn soup. Great place for getting a lot of things on the menu and sharing. Going back soon!

The server was not very attentive. We did not get served enough for the bottomless brunch price to be worth it. We probably had 8 drinks combined (2 people). The food was also very bland. We did not enjoy our time here.
