Server was slow and not very attentive. We’ve fined here many times before and had good servers. This gentleman was very slow getting our drinks and order.

Maya Del Sol does not disappoint. It was a muggy day, and I appreciated the staff person who sprayed the bushes and foliage for bugs. The drinks were simply exceptional and the food was lovely.

Everything was great but stale chips that came with salsa to start the experience. Maybe someone can taste them before they get to the table, but otherwise always yummy and great service.

Food was good and service was awesome. Just think it’s over priced for not a lot of food. I guess I’m use to going to Mexican restaurants that serve enough for you to take leftovers. $18 for 3 steak tacos 😦 with no rice or beans on the side or a soup doesn’t seem like it should be listed under dinner. Maybe appetizer. Not likely to return.

We had an excellent experience. Only reason I didn’t give five stars is because even though my salmon was awesome, my friend did not like her blackened tacos. Mussels were very good.

Took my mom for her birthday. She loved the food, the service was the best, our server Giovanni was attentive and recommend plates from the menu since it was my mom’s first time at Maya del Sol. Will definitely go back.

Food was lukewarm. The side dish we ordered came after we were done with dinner despite asking where it was when our dinner arrived at our table. Very disappointing!

Delicious food. Great atmosphere, especially the patio area. It was tropical without being over the top. The wait staff was very attentive. Food was delivered to our table quickly. Very enjoyable evening.

Found this gem and will be returning again in the future. Everything was great - ambience, location, food, drinks specials, staff, and prices. I had been spreading news to my friends and would love to try this place again soon before winter.

P.S. Would also love to try their brunch

The service was poor. We reserved a table on the patio, but when we arrived they told us that they did not reserve patio tables. They also set us directly in the sun and claimed they didn't have any additional umbrellas available (understandable). However, several minutes later a server set up a new umbrella for a smaller party. Our bill was wrong twice and server was less than adequate. They forgot to serve us several items that were ordered.

Made reservations via Open Table and requested patio seating. When arrived, we were told patio is first come first served. No one called me to advise me of this. What is the sense of making reservations? We waited 20 minutes. Also server didn't share there were size options with guacamole. Three people didn't need a large portion. This was our second visit and it was not up to par. May not come back with these shenanigans.

If you get a chance, dine on the patio. The patio was lovely and the weather was perfect. Food was very tasty but a little pricey.

I've never had a bad meal Maya's. The food is great, both taste and presentation. Their outdoor dining area on a warm summer night is what fine celebrations are all about. We celebrated our 49th wedding anniversary at the last visit and it was wonderful.

Fantastic place. We waited for the back patio and it was worth it. Inventive cocktails (various margaritas and old fashioneds....try the oaxacan old fashioned). Great menu with traditional dishes (tacos, etc.) but also interesting seafood like adobo shrimp and some vegetarian choices. Appetizer of plaintains with ropa vieja on top was terrific.

Margaritas are the best in the area. Patio dinning atmosphere is great. I will come back for those two things alone. Food is a bit pricey and dinning area needs a little sprucing up. Terrible parking but they do valet.

My friends, 7 of us, met on a Friday night & we were seated at the patio which was awesome. Rain clouds came though after we finished a round of Sangria with several appetizers & we were transferred indoor by our server. My friends raved about their dishes, I had the Salmon Ceviche as my main & which I really didn’t enjoy, it was spicy for me. I loved our appetizers like the Queso fundido & Beef tacos, both were tasty. The drinks didn’t seem to have enough alcohol, both Sangria & Margaritas, we didn’t even get tipsy at all. And there was a time, our server was MIA & we had to give some orders to the bus guys. Overall, we would go back to the place & try other dishes.

I was there with my book club and we loved everything but the noise level. The food was outstanding, the margarita special was lovely, the table was perfect. The music was to loud. We commented that if we weren't there for book club it still would have been to loud. I will go back but hopefully when the weather is better because the patio is awesome!
