Horrible Service, Really over price food!!! 12/28/2010

The only two exiting things about Maria Maria are: the nice Website and Its owned by Santana. After that I thing that the experience that I had there was really bad. I had a horrible service and the food was cold when served. Also the flavors was not the best, you could eat in 1000s of places in Austin better for half the money. Really overprice for what it is. more

New Ringer 2/1/2010

Good cake for birthday boy, free. Certain entrees were boring even though the waiter was timely. Carlos was not here but the bad newsroom bank acoustic sounds kept the drinks flowing and woman happy. more

Horrible Service 1/18/2010

We had a huge group that got together and wanted to eat here on a Sunday night. I do understand that huge parties take a lot of effort on the part of the waitstaff, but that is also a reason they add gratuity. They failed to inform us that the kitchen was closing down so half of our party had to order off a tapas menu. Not a huge problem, but if we would have known we could have ordered from the full menu for those who weren't there yet. Then at the end of the night, we asked for our checks. The waitress dropped off 1 bill and told us to divide it ourselves. Please tell me how to divide grautity 20+ ways. So a girl at the table asked for the manager. He sent the waitress back over and she said...full of attitude mind you...""So how do I do this?""...yeah, that was our point. She didn't have anything written down of who had what. So the girl that asked to speak to the manager actually took the bill back and manually went around asking who had what and dividing the check. Then she had to go to the computer and show the other waiter how to divide it because he didn't understand Proceeding that, she had to bring all of us our cc slips and change because our waitress never came back....and what about the manager you may ask? He walked by and saw our friend doing the job of his employees....and never stopped. He didn't ask if everything was good, if we needed help...nothing. We asked for our bill at 9:45 pm...and walked out the door at 11:05 pm. There is a serious issue here and I can guarantee we won't be back. Pros: great environment Cons: horrible service more

Like night and day 5/14/2009

What a transformation... the place is beautiful now and the restaurant looks great. It really is like night and day. more

Had the best time there 4/16/2009

I went there for happy hour with my girlfriends after work and we had the best time. The braised short ribs were delicious. Carlos Santana owns the restaurant so I guess that's why they have such an emphasis on great live music. It really sets the mood and the right atmosphere. I'm going to go back for my birthday with my fiance. He has never been there and can't wait to go because it's all i've been talking about for weeks. Pros: Delicious Food more

Perfect Example of Fine Mexican Dining 4/15/2009

What a transformation. The place looked great. Tre, one of the managers really made us feel welcome. My Chicken Enchilada was so delicious. Another great thing about this place is they are not shy with the tequila in the margaritas. Ladies, 1 will DEFINITELY do. more

great food! 3/8/2009

We went to Maria, Maria last night. Although there was an hour wait for a table (expected on a Saturday night at 8p), we were able to get a table in the bar area immediately. The drinks were great and the food was fantastic. Although it took a little while to get the food, it was worth the wait... and we enjoyed the music while we waited. The music was loud.. but the band was great! There was room for people to dance.. great ambiance. We will definitely be returning! Pros: great food, live music Cons: food was slow more

Terrible Experience 2/25/2009

I took my girlfriend to Maria Maria on Valentines. We pulled up to valet and they said they were out of room to valet, so we had to find parking and walk to the restaurant. When I made the reservation I was told there would be a option to do either full menu or fixed menu, but when we sat down at the table there was only a fixed menu, needless to say I was extremely upset. It was a four couse meal, the first course was guacamole that was good, but then they brought out the main course BEFORE they brought out the second course. The service was slow and inattentive, and to top it all off I woke up the next morning at 5am vomitting and with a fever. The next 48 hours were miserable. I hate this place and don't recommend it to anyone unless they want to lose 5 pounds due to vomitting. Pros: nice decorations Cons: food, drink prices, service, valet more
