    Wait staff slow. First Mexican restaurant that I’ve been to with two different chili poblano pepper dishes with no poblano peppers to be had.… Amazing for the end of the summer. Waiter got busy and was very and attentive but started out very congenial. It was our 35th anniversary, which was stated on the reservation. Nothing was said or done to acknowledge it. Unlikely to go again anytime soon

    Food was mediocre. The brisket enchiladas have a weird aftertaste. I wanted a sweet tea but the waiter said they don’t offer sweet tea. Wanted a root beer, they don’t offer root beer. Got a lemonade, so it was basically unsweetened lemon water; it tastes like water with a slight squeeze of a lemon wedge. The queso was too thick to pick up with the stale chips. The salsa tastes burnt. I will not go back to this place.

    The tostadas were delicious. The drinks were ok, a little too heavy on the mixer. The pork taco was bland. The ambience was great until they opened the large window to the patio in the afternoon and the restaurant for hot and humid quickly.

    The food is good, although on this occasion, my shrimp was overcooked. Portions are big and the flavors are wonderful. My wife had the pork and it was delectable. Getting greeted took about 10 minutes once I got seated. Getting a single w on my water after i downed my beer and water, was a challenge. I felt like I was treated as an afterthought by the staff who tended to flock at the end of the bar. This is an indication that there is poor management structure at the establishment.

    Everything’s my was great except open table. For the 45 May bites around time I wanted to dine, open table showed only space at the bar. When I arrived for 8:30 bar reservation the restaurant was half full. Plenty of tables. Maybe OpenTable customers are overbooking

    Wait staff was on top of things and checked back in with us for time to time but wasn't overbearing. Food was average. I had Chicken Tinga Tacos. Hubs had Poblano Pepper. Good but not outstanding. We do love the table salsa that's served. Bought some to take home. Do you serve fajitas or did we miss them on the menu?

    We had a great dinner- 3 couples- I requested a table against a wall since my husband is hearing impaired. Although it’s a loud restaurant, the maitre d did a great job of accommodating my request. The food was delicious and service attentive. We love this restaurant and will be back.

    Food and cocktails were great, and the service was excellent. I started with La Novela cocktail, which was fruity and spicy like a mango paleta candy. For dinner I had the queso fundido as an app and the herradura salmon as my main, both of which were delicious. Would definitely recommend Meso Maya!

    Service was horrendous. We ordered an appetizer and meals. The appetizer came out a few moments after our meal was delivered. Our waitress explained it was a computer error due to a new system. We said we didn’t want it so she brought us a box for us to take home $11 guacamole. We were brought a box to take it home in. We still got charged for it. We also had to beg for refills on drinks even though she was refilling other tables nearby. We also had to track someone down to get our check. Management asked us how it was and they said it is because of a new computer system. Spent over $120 on meal and drinks. I won’t be returning anytime soon.

    We had a 6:30Pm Reservation. There were plenty tables available in main dining & on patio. For some reason my husband & I were seated all the way in the back of the restaurant in the corner with a large table of about 8 adults & 4 toddlers next to us. I had a gut feeling perhaps to ask for different table but we decided to not make a fuss about. Oh my gosh!! Worst date night ever- the adults at the large table were extremely loud and we could not hear our waiter -- food & drinks were good. We felt bad for our waiter having to deal with that obnoxious table-- they let the kids throw rice all over the floor. We should have moved-- Why???? were they seating couples next to this table when other tables available???? We may/may not be back-- we only wanted an enjoyable evening.

    We arrived for our 5:45 reservation and were told that unfortunately the inside patio tables were all taken by a large party arriving later, so our only option was sidewalk seating. Needless to say this large party never materialized the entire time we were there. This coupled with slow service and lackluster food was a complete turn off for me. I ordered a short rib relleno, which was not short rib inside a relleno, but short rib with a relleno on the side. The short rib was somehow bland but also had an unpleasant flavor, which is quite an achievement when you think about it. The relleno was completely overstuffed with cheese, though I enjoyed it once I had squeezed 90% of the cheese out. My companions fared a little better with their meals. Brisket taco and pork shoulder. Honestly I’d never go back because of the weird host experience. Our reservation was extremely early. Just let us eat inside!
