Honestly if you are looking for a spot where the servers know when they need to tend to your table while it being busy this is the spot! Our serve was on point with everything that we needed throughout the whole time we were there.

Great service in an indoor/outdoor setting. Homemade guacamole and chips, steak fajitas and fish tacos tonight. Menu is not overly large but food is delicious.

Been to MAYA many times - Food is consistently good - a little noisy but not overly distracting
The one thing I recommend for the ultimate experience is to have Tammy as your server - she is amazing - I will always ask for a table in her station - id even wait for a later reservation to get her!!

Favorite brunch in NYC. Incredible food, service is not as good or exciting as I remembered. Functions like a smaller restaurant. But the food is incredible. The drink menu for brunch could be more varied like other brunches- but all around good time

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.

This was the first night of a weekend long reunion. Food was great. W only complaint I had was that is was a bit too noisy. We were only 5 people and it was hard to hear everyone speak. Otherwise I will be back with a smaller group.

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!
