Please consider a soundproof section for seating screaming children and their oblivious parent(s).

Biggest thing was not being attended as often--we had ordered a side of queso and guacamole and we never received it. I would recommend this restaurant to someone who has time to wait.

We were selected to participate in the Dallas Arboretum Artscape. As out of towners we went to Yelp to find a place new to us with good reviews and found Meso Maya. Luckily we were able to find a convenient reservation time on Open Table so we were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. The server was very kind but rushed as the place looked packed. The chips and salsa were on our table fast and they went fast too as both were sooo good. That salsa!!!! I wanted to bottle it up and bring some home. We ordered drinks and dinner fairly quickly and it was at the table fairly quickly as well. I ordered veggie enchiladas and hubby ordered shrimp and crabmeat enchiladas. Both were very good with great flavor. We shared a guacamole salad and I know I could have eaten the entire bowl myself! The noise level is fairly high but it's a large place and patrons and employees were everywhere. We're new fans & can highly recommend!

Food and drinks always good! Stay at the patio wasn’t a great idea because it was cold and heaters didn’t help.

We're regulars, coming in almost every weekend. The service is warm, relaxed and timed to whatever "speed" we feel like eating and/or relaxing that day. Every waiter is excellent and we have become fond of several who treat us like family. The food is outstanding - not even close to Tex-Mex (though they do have outstanding tacos and enchiladas). Our favorites are the Salmon Di Coco, The Chile Relleno and Tostaditas. Oh, and their salsa is roasted chipotle, the best in town. Add in a couple of $3 bloody mary's and you can't beat it. We're so lucky to have them in our neighborhood!

All was good actually, except we didn't like that they put chairs at a booth to make more room felt they were in the way of walk flow for the staff.

I usually go
To the Downtown location, but I think I’m changing locations, it was my sons birthday dinner and due to work we needed a late dinner, I tried to go to the Downtown location and I called and they told me we couldn’t be seen at 8:30 because the kitchen closed at 8:30, I was disappointed that they close at 9 but kitchen closes at 8:30, but anyway I was able to reserve a table at the Lakewood location and they greeted us with a smile and served us with a smile k will go here again!!

The server was great! He took time to talk about both the restaurant and it's signature dishes, made sure we were taken care of at all time even though we were on the outside area and not a lot of other clients outside that day. The food was great too and big portions.

The service was spectacularly bad on our last visit. Everyone received the wrong order, items were missing, and two of just gave up and ate the wrong my food they brought. The wait staff seemed untrained and were unapologetic about the many problems we were experiencing with our orders.

Everything about Meso Maya Lakewood was 5 stars. My only concern is that it was really busy and the dining room looked like it was already at 100% capacity. We were placed in a booth that was in an extremely high traffic area with servers and staff continuously walking by. I was inclined to wear my mask while we waited for our entrees and for the check to arrive. However, all servers and staff were wearing masks and they looked to be wearing them correctly (i.e. over nose and mouth). There was plexiglass between our booth and the booth behind us but no plexiglass on the other side (i.e. front) of the booth. In hindsight, we probably should have opted for outdoor dining instead.

Booked patio dining. Could never get hostess to follow through and actually seat us. The restaurant was near 100% capacity and in violation of Texas capacity limits /covid protocols.

The food was absolutely fantastic. The salmon and brussel sprouts were amazing, as was the ceviche! Service was great, in spite of the restaraunt being very busy - we were very well taken care of. Look forward to going back!
