This restaurant it the classic NYC tourist trap. Tiny portions, waiters who desperately try and squeeze every penny out of you. The food quality itself is fine, beats the little $4 taco places that look like chinese take out places, but certainly not spectacualr. The prices are outrageous, and you will leave hungry. Atmosphere is preety good, but certainly nothing special. Their "specialty margritas" are small and off, regular margaritas on the rocks are tasty. I found some native New Yorkers there for happy hr which is fine if you just want a margarita or two, otherwise avoid at all costs.

nice atmosphere and spot. they pay attention to detail (the menu, the silverware, etc). that being said the food is hit or miss and generally very overpriced for what it is. my girlfriend had the mahimahi which was quite innovative, i had a pork dish which was very blah. overall a decent experience but the food definitely does not warrant the price. would probably not return

Went for dinner, ordered a strawberry margarita at 13+$ served in a small cup, then had the pre fix menu which was not all that. my friend ordered a ceviche that was all tomato soup and when we told our server she made a little remark that my friend had already took a bite and gave an attitude for taking it off the bill. it seems this place is more concerned about taking your money and overcharging you for food and poor service.i can make my own enchiladas at home for $5.00 and not $20 plus tax and no attitude. Also a friend of mine placed an order over the phone and got attitude as well. very unfriendly people. take my money but at least serve me with a smile and friendliness.

This is by far my favorite mexican restaurant in the city. The drinks are terrific and the appetizers alone can make for a great meal. The quality of ingredients and preperation are truely unique. I highly recomend this spot.

After visiting a Mexican cooking school and spending the day cooking along side Mexican chefs in Puerto Morelos last year, I returned to NYC searching for some great authentic Mexican food. Maya is it! If your looking for 2 lb. stuffed burritos, chimichangas, or other nonsense this NOT for you. Mahi Mahi ceviche appetizer... fantastic !! refreshing citrusy, herbal cilantro notes and a kick of jalapeño. Corn tortillas are home made and are delicate and smell like roasted corn... and of corn, the roasted corn soup is fantastic . Tortilla chips were thick and up to the task of dipping on the freshly made guacamole... not greasy as other reviewer noted. Although pricey, will def return!!

It's true: drinks could be stronger and the whole experience can be very expensive but you won't be dissapointed. I went there last Friday for the 2nd or 3rd time (this time with 4 friends from work) and we had a great time. At the end, the bill got to be scary, but who cares, it's almost Halloween!

I took my girlfriend to this place cos she's an alcoholic and read up on their margaritas. Honestly, sucky weak margaritas. The apps were good but entrees sucked. I'd rather get a good bottle of wine and go to effing taco bell for a better experience
