I appreciate that this is at least a unique attempt at making Filipino food fancy. It's worth trying once probably but I don't think the concept really works in the end. A minor point is the service could also use some polishing.

The sisig was poor. not taste like real pampanga style sisig. 16 bucks for a silog. Silog is served for breakfast not lunch. very limited menu and very expensive. Take the path train to J.C. many more places that serve authentic and a better value.

OMG. I never really commented on any restaurant, but this one is poor! Very expensive for the quality of food they serve. I am Filipino and felt embarassed for bringing my caucasian friends for the first time to a filipino restaurant (since they heard me complain about how better Filipono food is than bland dishes here in US, can just imagine..pretty much napahiya ako!). I can cook dishes that are better-tasting! The adobo does not taste like adobo at all, mas masarap pa ang century tuna adobo flavor! Even the leche flan could be made better just following a recipe that you can search on google..just type "leche flan pinoy"! Shame on the owner! Since it is still your soft opening, I say, better close it down unless you can serve delicious Filipino food!

My husband and I had dinner at Maharlika recently and found it to be far and away the best Filipino restaurant we have had the pleasure to dine at, with the best and most gracious service. All the servers were very nice; Hostess Nicole was very informative about the dishes and made us feel very at home. Drinks and dishes were creative and delicious; all the dishes we tried were, according to my Filipino chef-husband, authentic and made according to traditional methods - everything was made from scratch and very flavorful. Highly recommended - great restaurant experience; delicious, well-made, and well-priced.

I enjoy Fillipino food, but I am a vegetarian now and Fillipino recipes are pretty meat-centric. I was amazed to find a very good vegan meal at Maharlika (bread salad, their 3 sides offered as an entree, lovely long beans). The place is typical east village small and noisy, but the service is beyond charming.

Just ate here for the first time and I would 100% recommend it. We had four dishes and they were all awesome. Ask if they have the watermelon vodka drink special.

Walked in for a table for 2 and waited 20 minutes for 1 of the several open tables. So ordered drinks at the bar (which was moderately busy) and the bartender got distracted and didn't serve us until we asked again. Food took ages to come out and was disappointed. Service - not good. Food, not worth it. Too expensive for serving sizes.
