Food is always exceptional. On this night service was AWFUL! We waited more than 20 minutes for our cocktails and had finished our appetizers before the drinks arrived. One entree showed up AFTER the rest of the party had completely finished their meals and had plates taken away. UGH.

As a local bed & breakfast owner and tour operator, I've been recommending Maya's for the past 6 months. I love the ambience, the low noise levels, the excellent Latin American fusion menu. The wait staff is attentive and the service is great. I especially recommend the Ceviche Mixta!

Absolutely wonderful. Great service and atmosphere with extra sidewalk seating on Magazine. Best Mojito I have had in a long time. Got the Mango Avocado Stack to go. This is the best dish and only thing I ever order so I can't speak to the rest of the menu! I can hardly wait to go back.

Have seen Mayas a million times when dining at another neighborhood and always wanted try it but never did, till the other night. We were looking for something different, flavorful and unique food and we tried Mayas. We were seated at a comfortable booth, had a superb waitress and we all ordered diffferent items. Each item we ordered was uniquely and beautifully presented and each dish ordered was better than the next. The Tuna Tartare was spicy, tangy and so flavorful, the stacked shrimp, crab dish was mild, lightly sweet and also delicious and my husband had a tamale and the skirt steak dish and he loved them both. We also started with the guacamole with sundried tomatoes which was so good it literally vanished from the table in minutes. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

I can't believe how delicious everything was. We had the trio empanadas, crab and shrimp ceviche, and paella. There was so much food and the two of us couldn't have been more happy about leftover paella. This gem was a great place to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary.

I have LOVED every visit to Maya's and have recommended it to everyone, who agree it is WONDERFUL!! Sadly, we did not keep our reservation 2 weeks ago because, after getting usual confirmation from Open Table, I left 6 unreturned VM's with Maya's because I wanted to up my reservation to two more people. I was afraid to ask my out of town visitors to drive down there and park, only to find Maya's closed. When I tried through Open Table to cancel my reservation, I could not. It stated it was not taking reservations at this time. I couldn't even get in to adjust the number. I was so frustrated.

So, I have NO IDEA if my favorite restaurant is closed for business, taking a vacation (which if it is should not have accepted my reservation and confirmed it). NO notice either through Face Book. This has happened to us before...we've shown up there and there is a sign on the door stating vacation time. If so, put that on the very nice voice message or Face Book. No problem. AND...there should be some way for Open Table to commuicate with the consumer what the status of the restaurant is. I even called two businesses across the street to see if they knew anything and they did not.
PLEASE MAYAS FIND A WAY TO LET ME KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. Thanks!

Called Uber which transported our party to a dark, no lights, closed restaurant. We double checked the address confirming we were at the right location, “CLOSED!”
Our reservations were made & confirmed on OpenTable.
While in front of a dark closed restaurant my phone pings with a reservation update reminder. We were all flabbergasted 😯
On my Uber account it shows our arrival fee and we uploaded another destination from this ghost restaurant to “Dat Dog” which we all enjoyed!!
This was a major disappointment on your site users and needs to be rectified.

I have eaten at Maya's in the past and the food and service are perfectly wonderful. I cannot give a good review this time however because they weren't open, even though I had reservations. I originally called Maya's to set a reservation for my friends who were coming to New Orleans for the weekend. Their answering machine picked up and said to go to their website to book reservations. So, I did just that and made our reservation through Open Table, and received a confirmation email from Open Table. I arrived at Maya's right on time...only to find that it was closed. Not closed permanently, but doors locked and lights out. No sign explaining why they were closed or anything. I had to think quick and reroute my friends to another nearby restaurant where we had to wait for a table for nearly half an hour. Before I left the sidewalk in front of Maya's, two more people walked up and were just as flummoxed as I was. They had done the same exact thing.

We had a great night at Maya!! My daughter and I shared the mariscada which was phenomenal!! My other daughter had the tropical tilapia but wasn’t wild about the sweet sauce. We loved the tamales - both types and my spicy watermelon margarita was awesome. My husbands Pisco sour tasted off.
Overall we had a great dinner!!

My husband and I came late, just right before they closed. The staff was friendly, entertaining, and also gave us enough space to have good conversation before he left on a work trip. The slow roasted pork entree was delicious, and the strip steak over mashed potatoes was as well.

First and foremost I must say that Trinity is a freeking Rock Star! My girlfriend and I go to Maya's at least 2x a month. We go in and sit at the bar as we usually do when we eat out. Hands down trinity is our favorite bar tender in the city. He knows what we want before we do!!!! The menu is creative and clever. I very seriously doubt that you could find something bad to eat here. All of the specially drinks are next level and labor intensive. Nothing is batched! I highly recommend Maya's for the food as well as the cocktails!!!!!

Loved this gem! The chef is also the owner and he's from Central America. There's a wide variety of food options and the portions are quite sizable. We opted for the Thai soup along with a shrimp curry dish. I will definitely go back when I'm on NOLA again!
