With all the raving reviews on here, I thought I would give Maharlika a try. I was very disappointed with the food and service. I tried out a few things that the waitress recommended and one of them include a platter that has a number of appetizers. None of them were really that great. The only... read more

Eager to discover Filipino cuisine, I found Maharlika in the East Village and thoroughly enjoyed my meal there. I was in a 'weary traveler' type of state when I arrived, but fortunately my friendly waiter recognized this immediately and helped guide me through the menu with thoughtful explanations. I started off with a delicious sparkling wine cocktail which was light... More

Delicious. Definitely had to get some Filipino food during our trip and really glad we went here. Kinda pricey, but the food/service were both great. Would come here again!

We landed in this spot by accident. We were craving seafood and Upstate (place nearby) had an hour wait. So we asked a very accommodating staff if they served seafood and they gave as a few suggestions and got as sited right away. The pictures speak for themselves. And the tastes were strong and pleasant. Usually I find that seafood... More

Been craving for some pinoy cuisine and this place hit the spot! Ordered the sisig, oxtail kare kare and lumpia. The service was great and very personal, had no reservation but the receptionist made some arrangements for us eventhough they are so busy. This place is a bit pricey from your typical pinoy reataurants. Would love to come visit again...

This place makes Filipino food into the classy, timeless food that it has been destined for. For brunch, try the ube pancakes. For a snack, try the spam fries. Either way, enjoy the great service, the beautiful decor, and the wide variety of Filipino fusion.

This was my first Filipino meal and it was DELICIOUS! Very savory food, great drinks, fantastic service, and the place is so much bigger than you think it is. The decoration was a really nice touch as well. Definitely recommended, although it is a little far from the city center. Prices were also very fair!

Went on Mother's Day with my wife and our daughter and son-in-law. Everything was a hit, and this was after we had just disembarked from a cruise. My wife is from the Philippines and she is a tough critic of Filipino restaurants, but she and our daughter loved the mango waffles. My son-in-law had "Eggs Benigno" and I had an... More

We dropped in 5.30 pm, no other customers, we got the only table with window. Waitress was very helpful, we had delicious fish and meat dishes. I have no previous experience of Filipino fine dining, and I was impressed, Service was effective and meals were prepared promptly. Several specialities available.

Came here the following day after Pacquiao beat Bradley (coincidence) ...the atmosphere is welcoming and the food was surprisingly delicious! Our waiter knew all the selection on the menu and was helpful if u didn't know what to choose. Authentic traditional Filipino food minus the typical greasy home cooked versions. Everything tasted fresh. I'm definitely coming back for seconds!
