    Maie Day does not disappoint with flavor! The food was delicious and the combinations and pairing were fantastic. The service was great. Biggest downfall was how loud is was for dinner. We were a table of 4 and could barely hear each other and 1 half of the table could not even hear the server. Go for the food but if you walk to talk, maybe choose a quieter place.

    Love Maie Day! They have the best French fries and ambiance. The patio barstool seats get an A+ for people watching and feeling like part of the vibe on South Congress while relaxing with a beverage.

    I usually do not do this, but I will be surprised if this restaurant lasts a few more months. Service was pretty bad, and I usually am empathetic to the plight of restaurant workers. Server really not knowledgeable at all. Meat was overcooked, server forgot sides then bussed our plates after everyone was done eating their main course then brought the sides out; the whole experience was just really not well executed. It’s a shame because some of the food is decent, but overall, a really poor showing from their whole team.

    Went here with my girlfriend to celebrate Valentines and I think I found my new favorite Steak in Austin! The ribeye melted in my mouth, with a perfect char around the edges. A little pricy but a great date spot if you and your SO want to splurge a bit! Will definitely be coming back!

    Granted, it was Valentine’s Day, so we did expect it to be busy, but the poor service quality did not come from the busyness. Server was inattentive and we felt VERY rushed to leave. Very disappointed in our choice for Valentine’s Day dinner

    All of our dishes were very good. Of note was the chicken-fried steak along with the beautiful prime rib. The biggest downside was the very loud music - at one point it was heavy metal and so loud we could not have a conversation without yelling across the table. This was during dinner and once we were done it was turned up even louder. Not the best vibe.

    Two of our three brunch meals were awful and sent back. Even though the restaurant only had a few other patrons seated (during prime time brunch on a Sunday — should have been a clue?) our waitress didn’t provide the level of service I would expect after a $100+ bill even with an entree comped. and our 4 mimosas cost $40, absolutely insane! Would absolutely not go back.

    Maie Day on South Congress in Austin, Texas, has delicious food and awesome deals (check their instagram for weekly deals) this makes it a go-to spot for locals and visitors. The wagyu burger is a standout, so much flavor and you have to add the egg. Also, consider trying the focaccia bread – absolutely amazing and a must-try! With its inviting ambiance and mouthwatering dishes, Maie Day is a definite recommendation for anyone craving good food in a fun area.
    Maie DayResponded on February 12, 2024
    Appreciate the review Nikki! We will be sure to tell Chef you enjoyed the new Focaccia!

    Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive. We were delighted to find an awesome blossom on the menu! the rib eye was cooked perfectly, the grilled fish was moist and delicious! I would recommend the grilled green beans to everyone full of flavor. The restaurant is small and tends to be loud when fully occupied

    As the restaurant filled up, my wife and I couldn’t hear one another. I really hope they address the sound issue or it’ll potentially be the downfall of the otherwise good restaurant.

I'm happy to report that we have some sound dampening, artful installations happening in the month of February and hope that you'll come back to see us again with this in mind. Very Sincerely, Your friends at Maie Day

    I brought a group of 8 ppl including a friend of a friend who is a diplomat from France on visit and there were 3 occasions where they were out of menu items. One of them my friend was told he couldn’t have because it could only be ordered at the bar only to learn that they were out of stock. I wasn’t impressed.

    A large group dined here for brunch. Some things were good - burger, avocado toast, parfait. The bacon was bizarre. It was the thickest piece of bacon I’ve seen and unfortunately my cut was literally just fat. The prices were definitely above their quality. The waffle resembled a hotel waffle. The restaurant also “cannot” do egg whites in place of eggs. That being said, the vibes of the restaurant were great. The regular menu may be better than brunch, but I can’t speak to that.
    Maie DayResponded on January 24, 2024
    Hello Heather, Thank you for the feedback. We're happy you enjoyed the brunch vibes. Perhaps you might enjoy Friday Prime Rib brunch more. Otherwise we hope to see you for dinner service Monday-Sunday 5PM- Close!

    We went for brunch and were completely underwhelmed. Our food arrived cold and our server was too apathetic to even check on us. We even got our own silverware. With 2 cocktails, brunch for our party of 5 was nearly $275. So not worth it!

    The food and ambiance was great! We came with a group of 12 and ordered just about every appetizer on menu. Personally went with the raw oysters, Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, and ribeye. The cornbread is a must! Our waiter was terrible but the food was so good that we will still go back. Food = 10/10

    I went for Prime Rib Friday. The presentation was nice, but the prime rib was tough and full of fat. I was only able to eat a quarter of the meat. I sent the other 3/4 home with my friend for her dogs. I had to ask for a steak knife since my dinner knife could not cut the meat, but I couldn’t even cut it with a steak knife.

    The core elements of a Steak and Caesar Salad weren’t as good as other places. The strip steak was somehow not tender and they forgot to bring us plates and cutlery until I flagged someone down.

    Weird service. Very rushed, even though it was never very full or busy. We were seated right next to another full table even though the room was large and fairly empty, and whenever another party arrived it was seated next to ours although there were plenty of other available tables. Very different service from what we expected for a fairly high-end restaurant, and from what we experienced from Olamaie's sister restaurant. Caesar salad was too sweet for me. Crab legs were extremely salty. Mac and cheese was good but not spectacular. The best dish was the pork chop, which was smoky and well-cooked.

    This is a hard review to write because this was our first time for dinner at Maie Day and the event was our office Holiday Party. We had hoped for a festive - happy - upbeat experience, but not this Thursday night. I will start off with the good things - the food was very good, but our service was not. It started with a very lackluster greeting from the host who hardly looked up to make eye contact. Once our small group was sat at our table and our server arrived who made no introductions and asking for a drink order. Once drinks were delivered it was apparent that she was wanting to get down to business and take orders....we asked for some appetizers to have with our drinks and give us a bit to review the menu. At some point she disappeared and a new server arrived at our table who took our orders - again no introductions or explanation why he was now taking over. We were disappointed by the lack of energy or interest in our being in their establishment. While ordering our main courses, we asked for assistance in quantities needed for our side selections. He told us one would be fine.....when our food arrived and our small skillet of Mac was presented it was clear that it would not server our party of 7. He then told me that we was thinking of the larger option...which was not listed on the menu or suggested by him....again such disengagement and lack of interest in serving the guests of the restaurant. I am not looking to make best friends with my servers or expect them to do back flips for me...but I do expect to be guided, happily serve, and show respect to guest who are out celebrating and spending money in the establishment that they work in.

    First, the food was pretty good and the service was on point. The biscuits are the real deal. No regrets but I may not be back for brunch. Brunch menu was kind of scattered. For instance there’s queso on the menu we tried (tasty but way too rich for two to finish) but nothing else Tex-Mex to follow it up. There’s oysters which we’d usually go for but nothing that felt intuitive to eat afterwards. There’s a chicken wing app and a sweet/fruity/creamy waffle main but no savory waffle option. Maybe I’m wrong about this but the menu talks big about Prime Rib Friday like it’s the only day you can get it. But then there’s other entrees that have prime rib in them (like a breakfast hash) which made me feel like I was eating Friday’s diced up leftovers. Which is fine I guess but got in my head some kind of way for a $20 potato and egg scramble that I didn’t love.
