Excellent food and service! I would recommend to anyone who comes to visit DC
Excellent food in a very nice atmosphere. Service was good and margaritas were great.
The food was just plain bad.
The food was great, but the service was disappointing. The service was rushed at the beginning and nonexistent at the end.
All of the food came at the same time- we ordered three small plates/appetizers which were brought out with the entrees. The food barely even fit on the table since it was a small table for two. We had to ask several times for plates for the appetizers. We were not given plates for a shared dessert.
Excellent experience. Food was delicious, service was great and margaritas were perfect.
Everyone was great. Friendly. Happy.
Amazing food!!! Definitely will be going back again!
Great addition to the neighborhood. It's a new place but they're really getting it together and providing good service, congenial staff, and sophisticated food.
Wonderful! Our server was the best and the food was great. So glad to have this new restaurant in Woodley Park. We’ve spent years in the Southwest and this cuisine is the only in the nearby area that authenticity captures the flavors and quality. Thanks!!
I'd return for the tacos. At $18 for three, this is not a bargain, but the portions were generous. We had the grilled mahi and the brisket tacos, and they were outstanding. The margaritas were weak, and the salsa and chips, at $3.50, need to up their game. The chips were cold, and the salsa was pureed and somewhat flavorless. There are many other interesting items on the menu that are surely worth a try. The restaurant is lovely and whimsical, with many nice touches. Lighting is too low; we could barely read the menu.
Birthday dessert with candle
Food was amazing! We live in the neighborhood and will certainly be coming back.
I was really looking forward to eating at Mayahuel and left very disappointed. The food was dull - pretty, but for Mexican food, it had almost no kick. And the service was atrocious. It took 2 or 3 tries to get more chips and I never got the hot sauce the food needed because our server was unavailable. DC restaurant service has improved enormously, but Mayahuel is an unfortunate blast from the past. It's a shame, because Woodley Park and Upper NW DC needs good restaurants. Regrettably, this is not one of them.
Fabulous addition to the neighborhood. Food was excellent. Can't wait to go back.
So yummy...cute tables for 5 by door. Will be back!
Chewy tortilla chips, $18 for tacos? expensive for Mexican food.... good cocktails though at a good price. $11 is a great price point.
Good new spot in Woodley Park. The food was good - had the skirt steak and the brisket tacos [2 of us]. My wife really enjoyed the skirt steak marinade - very fresh tasting, said. Tacos were delicious too though a bit difficult to handle as the taco shells [soft] were falling apart in my hands due to the moisture from the food. Still, very good food. Margaritas are also good though you have to get use to the Mescal in the recipe; as the waitress told us, it adds a smoky flavor.
A great addition to the neighborhood. Good Mexican cuisine and I expect this will be one of our regular weekly dinners out locations.
Great to have another restaurant option in woodley park. Very good food and service
Really unusual and delightful. From the opulent decor to the delicious chips and salsa, the dining experience started off extremely well.
Our waitress was attentive and friendly, service was quick and the food was delicious. It’s a spectacular addition to our neighborhood. The chickenpechuga was my favorite entree and the margaritas and cocktails were exceptional.
