We came here on a very busy Saturday night, so we were expecting a long wait (it was mariachi night). We ordered Así Sabe México, one of (if not) their most popular margaritas. We also got two types of brochetas (one with chorizo and one with poblanos) that were amazing. I wish we would have had enough time to order... More

This was a breath of fresh air for Mexican cuisine in the US. It reminded me of more authentic Mexican that I have had on trips to Mexico. I had the ceviche and it was light and refreshing but substantially filling. While I wasn't there with family, I saw other families enjoying their time. The wait staff were attentive and... More

Their selection of Tequilas and Mezcals is superb. The food is traditional - try the Costillas. The service is helpful but not intrusive.

This Mexican food was delicious, the mole truly outstanding, as was the pork in salsa verde. The cocktails were yummy, the wine a little spendy but good. We sat outside on a pleasant evening before attending the ballet. We'll be back!

We went to Mayahuel for a wedding anniversary dinner. The colorful, modern Day of the Dead inspired decor and classic portraits of tequila masters is bold and commanding. Mayahuel is a long rectangular space, with high ceilings, and a cavernous feeling as it extends back to a 2nd bar in the way back. We had a small table for two... More

I've visited Mayahuel now three times. Two consistent things on each visit: 1) Exceptional service (especially from Fernando, who also provides lots of information about different tequilas); and, 2) Noisy. Can't do much about the latter because of the plaster and cement used throughout and the high ceilings. So, it can be hard to hear your dining partner. However, the... More

I purchased a groupon to try this place out. We were shocked at how good the food and margaritas were. Even our picky 8 year old cleared her child plate of flautas, beans and rice and then went after our braised pork dish. Not your typical Mexican food, which is what makes this place special. The service leaves nothing to... More
