Latin American
Mayas Restaurant is a captivating Latin dining experience with exciting social rhythms. We feature the cuisines of multiple countries of Latin American, but rather than simply transferring dishes we pay compliment to the ingredients that are natural to Latin America. Our food is prepared from scratch using classic and modern techniques but always remembering the aromas and flavors of our mother's and grandmother's kitchen. We invite you to choose your own escapade by selecting from our Plantains, Ceviches, Empanadas, Curries, Steaks, and Small Plates for a multi-course dining experience.

    Our food was extremely salty. The ceviche was mainly chopped onions and very little fish. Our chicken tasted like it was from a bag and just defrosted. Will not return.

    Great and creative take on fresh Mex….quality ingredients and presentation. Server was a nice young lady, service and follow up not fast but not so slow as to be awful. Lots of time to talk between courses…not crowded for a Friday but definitely get a reservation. Great decor and ambiance, Latin music light and distant In background. Great little place—we will definitely be back!

    We really enjoyed the food at Mayas, the best of our trip to the Big Easy! Many of the dishes had a Peruvian influence to them. The Dorado ceviche, quesadillas and chili relleno with steak were our favorites followed closely by the elote and tres leches cake!

    Mayas is a small family owned place. The food is always great. They have a small staff; so service may not be as fast, especially if you in a hurry. The good is worth the wait.

    Happy Mayas reopened . The food and drinks are great Latin American variety. Recommend the guacamole, the Brazilian mosqueqa, ceviche. Food preparation takes a long time, however, so be prepared for their admonition printed on the menu to be patient as they prepare each dish fresh.

    All of the food was delicious! Except for the salsa they bring you, it’s honestly sweet & sour dipping sauce in a small condiment cup. It is not at all a salsa. It felt very out of place. The fried spicy dorado was amazing, definitely stole the show. The guacamole was very good and a very good portion size. Large portions, small space perfect for date night or every night!

    Drinks and food were amazing! Mojitos were delicious and made with fresh fruit. There was a little wait on the food but totally worth it!! Was told the bartender was also the chef and you can tell he is really good at what he does! We had the crab and shrimp ceviche, shredded pork eggrolls, and chilean sea bass...all cooked to perfection! Will be back!

    The food was excellent. The dining area is not large. Staff was friendly but a tad slow. I think this was likely a staffing issue. Will definitely visit again. The carne asada on the brunch menu was outstanding.

    The food was great but the experience wasnt great. 4 groups sat down after us but were served dinner before us. That was deeply concerning. They seemed to be clueless about what was going on. One of the waitresses acknowledged after an hour “its coming.” Also, the group that sat right after us had a 1 year old. Wouldve thought maybe you seat them next to the group leaving next, then we would be spaced out. The poor kid was 12 inches from us, literally almost on top of us. Once again, food was great but logistics and timing needs a review. It wasnt like they were crowded or busy, but they execution was deeply flawed. Food was good but i dont know if it warrants another visit. To top it off, last night was our 28th anniversary meal. We booked through opentable and everywhere else we’ve eaten they recognize our special occasion. My wife had 1 drink in 90min. Would’ve like more. I had water because, according to the waittress they have no diet drinks.

    We were a party of 5 adults and we all agree that our meals were, hands down, some of the best we’d ever had! Just fabulously delicious all around! Our server was the only one on duty but she handled everyone’s order & requests quickly and efficiently. We can’t wait to go back. Kudos to the entire team👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
