    I have to say that coming across this fine for Cinco de Mayo, it was better than expected. I recommend the octopus Chicharrón. Although it was different from what II have to say that coming across this fine for Cinco de Mayo, it was better than expected. Although it was different from what I expected, was very tasty and the flavors were well implemented. I also love the shrimp and crab enchilada. I did the margarita tasting, and it be totally honest, I would have to say it was just OK. I will probably just stick with the tequila spirits directly. However, for the energy and the food, I will absolutely be back! I would recommend..

    I never really write reviews. I do if I love a place, like really love, or if I’m disappointed. This was my Second time going. Loved it the first time. Will most likely not go back, even though the food is pretty good. Service wasn’t great, not sure if they were low staffed, but we were never checked on. Food was forgotten, (yes it was taken off the check luckily) we had to ask for water numerous times. Hot chocolate had NO chocolate it in - it was just steamed milk. In both of the hot chocolates we ordered. 🤷‍♀️

    I always love brunch there and their Presidents' Day brunch was no different. We came a bit later and they did tell us wherever we sit down is when our 90 minutes would start. Some of our part came late and they told us again and we accepted despite the remaining party being ten minutes late, we still appreciated the constant reminders, they didn't want to take away time for us which was understandable. Our server was enthusiastic and relatable and the drink and food were always coming. we did come later but they didn't kick us out until way after 90 mins. Mind you if they asked us to leave we would've! We got our 90 minutes and then some. We got great recommendations and wonderful food, I'll always recommend their brunch.

    First time I’ve ever been to a place that offers unlimited drinks and food for brunch. The food is amazing. You can pick and choose what meals you want to try and then you can eat however much you want. The meals are tapas style so they’re small BUT with all the choices you will leave there happy and full . Definitely recommend and I will definitely be returning again for brunch!!!!

    The food was good although we felt a bit expensive for what it was. The tuna tostadas were old. (To be fair, we forgot to tell the waiter because we were in midst of wonderful family reunion.) We ordered 4… so we knew it was the whole batch. The pork birria was really good and the street corn amazing. Waiter was fun and nice.

    The waitress had a little bit of an attitude and seemed annoyed when we asked any questions. She really wasn’t that friendly and didn’t smile until she gave us the bill at the end of the night. The rest of the staff (especially the bussers) were incredible though! I hope our tips go towards them too.
    Maya - New YorkResponded on February 14, 2024

    Still my top recommendation for a group brunch in the city. Yummy plates, enough variety that everyone leaves satisfied, and a thoughtful distinction between bottomless brunch and bottomless brunch + drinks. MAYA creates a space where inviting a mixed crowd is a seamless experience, and no one feels left out.
    Maya - New YorkResponded on February 2, 2024
    Thank you so much for the glowing review and your continued support! We're thrilled to hear that our group brunch continues to hit the spot for you and your friends. Our goal is indeed to provide a variety of delicious options that cater to all tastes, and it's fantastic to know we're achieving that. We're especially pleased that you appreciate our bottomless brunch options - both with and without drinks. It's important to us that everyone feels included and has a great time at Maya. Thanks again for your recommendation. We look forward to serving you and your crowd on your next brunch visit!

    I'm not sure if there is a new owner, but the food was not nearly as good as it was in the past. I work in the area, so I've been here several times and the food was very bland this time around.

    We arrived before the crowd. We waited a really long time before we were even offered water and given menus. One of the people in our party was a vegetarian. Their solution for this was not very creative. Instead of plating 2 meat dishes with a vegetarian option, we received alternatives which didn't allow the meat eaters to experience the range of options. We found the food just fine. Just not exceptional. I was hoping this was going to be a new go-to brunch spot for us but we'll pass.
    Maya - New YorkResponded on February 2, 2024
    Hi Barbara, we want to extend our sincerest apologies for not living up to the level of service and culinary creativity we hold ourselves to, especially during your recent visit to Maya. Waiting for menus and water is not the welcome we aim to provide. We will ensure prompt, attentive service from the moment our guests arrive, regardless of the time or crowd. We take pride in embracing diverse dietary needs and regret that we missed the mark in offering your party a balanced and creative dining experience. Our goal is to present dishes that delight all members of a group equally, with enough variety to satisfy different tastes. It is our hope you reconsider and give us another try!
