This restaurant is one among others around the square in Sonoma. We felt like Mexican food, and found this restaurant quickly. The interior is tastefully furnished and decorated in traditional Mexican style. We ordered a "burro" which is advertised as too big to be called a "burrito". The meal arrived quickly and it was certainly enough for two people! We... More

Very authentic Yucatecan food and a really great tequila list! They make sangrita to go along with the tequila...yes you are supposed to alternately sip tequila with sangrita...not shoot it with lemon and salt! For dessert you can't go wrong with the Pastel de Tres Leches or the Flan, both were superb!!

My husband and I stopped in to sit at the bar for a few drinks one night of our vacation. We ended up coming in for drinks for 3 straight nights. The bar staff was so welcoming. Veronica, Carlos and Francisco (owners) were gracious, fun and made great drinks. A big highlight of our vacation. Food was great as well.... More

Maya makes about the best margarita in town, and has great appetizers to go with them. Their happy hour makes for an affordable experience. Their varied menu is more on the high end of Mexican restaurants: some creative a-typical dishes, abit on the expensive side but very tasty, nice atmosphere and good service.

On our last day in Sonoma we stopped in at Maya for lunch. It is located in the heart of historic downtown Sonoma on the edge of the square. The food is terrific and the decor is really well done. Authentic Mexican food served in a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere.

After 2 days of wine and fancy food we enjoyed margaritas and excellent Mexican food in Sonoma on the square. They have a varied menu and relaxed atmosphere. They were very helpful to accommodate gluten free options.

I love going to this restaurant over and over. I have always had excellent service and the food was never a disappointment. The atmosphere is festive and rather on the noisy side but that is what makes this restaurant unique.

The food here is amazing! Definitely not your average Mexican restaurant. The food was very fresh and flavorful. The chips and salsa were even well above normal Mexican restaurants. The atmosphere here was great...rustic and southwestern.
