Great Happy Hour Margaritas!

All the chefs are real Latinos following CA- Mex recipes so be prepared for some unusual flavors. The chips and 3 kinds of salsas are unique and can keep you drinking.

This is not authentic Maya food. The cochinita pibil was just shredded pork with very little seasoning, not even achiote; this is not at all what you would get in the Yucatan. I also found it annoying that Salsa music, Caribbean not Mexican, was playing at all times. Nice staff though.

This is a great place for happy hour or getting together with friends. The dressing on the salad is my favorite! The guac is unbelievably good and the meals are creative and filling. I usually order the carne asada tacos and I have never been disappointed!

I came here on a whim after a spa day with my friend. We were both starving. This is not traditional Mexican food. It's more South American. Needless to say, the flavor was lacking. Their chips and salsa were good and the only saving grace to my dinner. My friend had a Maya sunset drink which packed a punch. Come... More

The food here is upscale Mexican. The empanadas are not traditional but really good. The spaghetti is not very mexican, but still good. The margaritas are among the best in the US. The tres leches cake is among the worst ever -- the cake was dry sponge cake.

I love Mexican food - all the traditional types, but it's also fun to experience it with a fresh, inventive style too. Maya's delivered! Comfortable ambience, great bar/drinks. Ate my food too fast to take any pictures...

I asked the waiter for his recommendation (& followed it) that was a braised pork with tortillas...amazingly yummy (and the fresh tortillas are awesome!) Cold Negro Modello on tap! (I know...it's wine country, but every once in a while you need a break...)

Great food and margaritas! I had the chicken mole enchiladas and my wife had the tortillas chicken soup and a salad. Both were delicious.

We were disappointed this year that our annual lunch at Maya was plagued by service issues. We waited 10 minutes for our reservation to be honored and another 20 before our order was taken, again for delivery of drinks and then for food and then for the check. The food and drink is very good but this time the experience... More

open atmosphere at Maya. more like Mayan food than Mexican. had prawn enchiladas with rice and a cream sauce that was very tasty along with the mixed grill that included grilled chicken, prawns, steak and veggies. In addition the margaritas were pretty good.
