Maize was excellent and we will definitely be back. Funny thing, I wish the service took a bit longer. We ordered an appetizer and as soon as we finished, our dinner was out. Didn't have time to order a 2nd drink. We got there at 5pm and we were finished by 5:15. I'm sure it's not always like that, but we decided to stay back and have a 2nd drink even though our meals were done.

Tried to like Maize .. I was there a few times when they opened and it was not great food bland no flavor
Brought my family Friday night and it was unanimous everyone said their dishes were ok . My husband ordered steak fajitas and said there was no flavor , the guacamole we ordered was awful I don't know how you can mess that up , the only thing we really enjoyed were the churros for dessert . It was my husbands first time and he said he'd never go back sadly . I wish the chef would go to agave in Delaware and see what great Mexican food tastes like .

The food and drinks were great but the service was horrible. Took forever to get our drinks, didn’t come back for over 20 minutes for our food order and we had to repeatedly ask for water which never came unless we asked another server.

I did not enjoy my time here. I made a reservation through open table for 8pm. I got there at about 7:45 and the place was empty except for 2 other parties. We were seated right away but we’re waiting for our last person to arrive around 8:05. WHent he waiter came to take our food order, we were, not so politely, told that she only had 5 minutes to arrive and order because they close at 8. Then while we were eating they were cleaning and mopping the floor so everything smelled like Lysol and chemicals - not something I want to smell while I’m eating.

The service was below average and the chicken tacos I had were not flavorful. The $9 margarita I had did not taste like it had an ounce of tequila in it.

They should not be taking reservations for 8 pm if they are going to be rude about taking orders and cleaning up while people are dining. The whole experience was not great. I will not be going back.

Margarita was very good, guacamole was very good but main course was a bit bland-could have been what I ordered and how I modified so will try again. Wait staff was wonderful and accommodating

Great date night. $3 margaritas were the cherry on top of a delicious meal. Can’t wait to go again.

Service and drinks were amazing. The atmosphere was great. Unfortunately out of 6 in our group, no one really had any praises for the food. Definitely not as good as other Mexican restaurants we have been to.

We met some friends for dinner. They let us stay for several hours since they were not super busy. I really appreciated that, a lot of restaurants make you leave as soon as you are finished. The food was excellent. Will be going back very soon!

Best Mexican food in the area. Very good value for quality food. The menu shows how a good chef knows how to keep things interesting. Also like that the decor is not a campy cliche of what a Mexican eatery is .
