Many a place in San Francisco offers some sort of a happy hour, but most places do not offer it all night long. Maya offers their $2 tacos and $5 array of margaritas from 4:30pm ...

Wonderful food if they can deliver what you order the first time would definately be a big help. Being willing to correct it would be a bigger help. I don't think all three of u...

Such a shame about the service... 5/3/2006

I've eaten at Maya a number of times, once in New York and four times at this location in San Francisco. Though the quality of the food stands the test of the time, this upscale Mexican restaurant just fails to deliver an acceptable level of service. Tonight, I was there with a group of four for a very early (in my book) reservation: 7pm. With cocktails, guacamole, appetizers, main courses and dessert, we were out less than 90 minutes later... unacceptably fast by any means. The service was also completely unprofessional - our main courses were presented while the appetizers were still on our table - not acceptable for a cheap restaurant and certainly not what I expect when paying more than $50 a head. The Maitre 'd didn't speak or understand enough English to even take our drink orders (two margaritas, on the rocks, with salt) or dessert orders (what kinds of ice cream do you have.... ice cream... helado... while pointing repeatedly at the menu). The food, once spectacular, is now just acceptable. The guacamole and warm chips were the definite highlight, followed by good beef tacos on handmade corn tortillas. The carnitas were poor for the price, easily beaten by those made by Tres Agaves, Pancho Villa or even Mexico au Parc. Even the margaritas were lackluster. It's a shame. Simply polishing the service (which, to be noted, has been this brusque if not this unprofessional since they opened years ago) would have left a better taste in my mouth, even though the food failed to do so. I don't know why I went back. For $50 per person, there are many better options for Mexican in town. more

pricey for what it is 9/4/2005

This place has a great ambiance and is impressive as a first view, but the food is unimpressive, especially for the price. They try to take a twist on mexican to make it gourmet, but it ends up being very similar to dishes you could get elsewhere for a better price, and more authentic. It was also very hard to find, as it is in the bottom floor, kind of in the back of a dark financial district building south of market. If you just want to try it out with no expectations, go for it, but if you are wanting a treat to a nice place or want to impress someone, I would go elsewhere. more

gooooood 8/23/2005

This is an upscale restaurant with gourmet food prepared by talented and skilled chefs, don't get it wrong because it is listed with all the burrito joints. Have been here 3 times, the food is superd, you will treasure every bite of it. The furniture is kind of conservative, but it probably appeals to people around 50-60. Would probably be good for business dinners as the tables have some space between them and the multiple of fabric muffles the overall noise. Bring lots of money or a credit card! more
