We have been dining at Meso Maya for years. One of our favorite neighborhood places.

This visit was no exception. Despite the issues we are all dealing with we found the same welcoming friendly and grateful I might add faces at every turn!!

We really needed a list of brunch options. Someone should type up a sheet of paper for the “Brunch Menu” showing only the currently available options.

The service with fewer customers due to social distancing is very nice and prompt. The servers seem to have a little more time to spend on you... It was so good I find my self tipping over 20% because I know they were out of work for a while and things were tight. But, the level service also earns it as far as I'm concerned.

My reccommendations:
One of the best Frozen Margaritas in town.
Salmon de Coco is fabulous.
Carne Asada is great.

Customer Care was their utmost goal. I think they were so happy to be open and serve diners that it showed in how much they cared. The food was great, as always. I will continue to support this restaurant.

It was very quiet, all wait staff appropriately masked. Food there always good, wine selection iffy, and for two glasses of wine each, a bit pricey.

It was great to be back at this neighborhood restaurant. I expected things to be a little off given this was their first weekend back open, but everything was outstanding!

This was the first meal we’ve had out since the stay at home order was issued.

We went to Meso Maya for Mother’s Day. The food was delicious as always! The carne asada is the best I’ve had anywhere and the tamal cakes are to die for!

We all loved our meals!!

Food and ambiance excellent as usual and we had a good meal. Service a bit slow and dinner for 7 brought out over a 5 minute period and not together. Overall good though.

Great meal. Waiter hovered way too much and made us feel very rushed. He returned to the table 3 times in under a few minutes trying to make us order and brought the tab the second we finished our food. The meal itself was fantastic as always.

Their chicken and mole enchiladas are amazing. I also recommend the chicken and chicharrones enchiladas. We’ve been dining here for 6 years and the service is always top notch.

Thank you for another wonderful dinner with delicious food and drinks, along with absolute superb service from Martin B and Adolpho.
Unfortunately the ambience was not the same as usual, as there was a female customer in the dining room with her laptop computer open having a facetime conversation out loud with someone while we were trying to enjoy our evening. We hope that you will stop this from happening in the future as it was very disturbing to say the least.
Thanks again

Hopefully it is a one time thing but the service was noticeably off tonight. Several times while I was reviewing the menu, the wait staff would place a glass, chips, or a plate on the menu. I would pick up the item place it on the table so I could continue to look at the menu. Sure enough they would repeat the process. I became a joke at the table. When I inquired about a cocktail order which hadn’t arrived for some time the response was “would you like me to get it for you?”. With great restraint I did NOT respond “no thanks I’ll go mix it up, pour it out, and serve myself”. Several other minor issues occurred which just made us wonder about the place. Hopefully it was just a one one night thing as the food is pretty good.
