I've been to Maria's twice now and enjoyed it both times. The first time I went was for a special Tapas occasion with some friends. We ordered lots of smaller dishes and picked to enjoy the variety. They were delicious, as was the Watermelon Sangria. My last visit was with a friend for dinner. We got there just before the rush. If you go on a Friday or Saturday night, go by 5:30 the latest or you will wait. The chip basket was fresh and delicious. The steak was tender and the rice and beans were very tasty. We split a dessert that was rich and delicious. I can see why they have a "Best of Long Island" banner. Enjoy!
