We were there around 8:15 (so getting close to closing time). While our dishes were tasty, they weren't as good as they normally are. Maybe everyone just wanted to go home. First cocktail (Oaxaca) was excellent while second was "OK". Shrimp tacos were rather bland and short on the shrimp. We'll be back though because normally all the food and drink are great.

Food was excellent. Waitstaff were very helpful, competent, and friendly. The booth seat was dirty, and I did not realize the extent until my friend mentioned she was concerned about her nice pantsuit after we finished. I would encourage management to help bus staff to double check the seats of booths all the way around, to be sure they are clean for next diners. Had I realized, I would have asked to be moved to another booth or table. Everything else was great.

Slow service, appetizers and main course brought out at same time, no cutlery or water. Seemed understaffed. Food more focused on take out.

A friend was celebrating her 65th birthday. She wanted to go to her favorite restaurant; so, we took her. The service was wonderful. Our waitstaff was very attentive, but not overly cell. The food came out and looked as it should, the food temperature was perfect, and it tasted great. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Wonderful experience. I accidentally reserved at the wrong location. Everyone at the restaurant was very gracious and accommodating. It was our first experience dining at Meso Maya. It was fantastic & we are looking forward to our next visit.

Not acceptable
It was a birthday celebration with zero accolades. Very disappointing, to say the least. No requested beers available. Salmon was undercooked. Server was not attentive after half then all plates were served. There are too many better restaurants in Dallas to return to this one.
We’ve been here many times, this was our last.

Drinks are nice and menu reads well but unfortunately, the food was not very well made or very good quality. The steak was way to fatty and not edible. The chicken quesadilla was "shredded chicken" but there was a chicken bone in it which made no sense. It was not very good.

I have to mention the bathroom since there was no soap in the dispenser, nor any hand sanitizer available. Although there was a note posted that employees must wash their hands before returning to work, I wondered what they were washing their hands with. Thankfully I had my own sanitizer. Regarding the food, I have had better elsewhere so it would be hard for me to recommend going here.

It's been awhile since we've been there due to COVID, but the service and food was just as good as we remembered. And excellent top shelf margaritas! We went early and it wasn't crowded nor did we feel rushed. We'll be back soon!
