Dined 3 days ago

Maya Del Sol is one of the very best dining options in all of the Western Suburbs. Great drinks, innovative/delicious food and a vibrant atmosphere keep us coming back. This particular evening the spicy roasted red pepper soup and the ropa vieja were excellent. They also happen to have one of the nicest outdoor dining spaces in Chicagoland.

Very good experience!

Dined on April 23, 2016

Went out on a date night with the husband early in the evening. We were running late and they were very kind to us and never made us feel like they were put out. Very accommodating when we were seated. We were given our choice and they had various options for a lot of different kinds of diners: outside, bar, booth, table, quiet area, loud. It was too cold, but they also have outdoor seating. Food was VERY good and they had a lot of interesting options. Not the typical same Latin fare. Exciting dishes with a Latin flare. The drink list is great and we enjoyed each drink we had!! Service was fantastic. Attentive, but not on top of us. The other servers are looking out for the staff, so we were always able to grab a hold of someone, if we needed something. The only comment about the food is that there seems to be a heavy leaning toward sweet. For me, that works. For my husband, he is not such a fan. Nothing was grossly sweet, so it was not a problem. I just want to advise that if you are like my husband, go for the savory dishes or inquire of the server if the particular dish is sweet.

Tasty steak and shrimp, decent appetizers.

Dined on April 18, 2016

The only annoyance: the patio seating was requested and we were sat inside without reference to the request we made through Opentable. Which was fine, but we got curious - we then asked if patio seating was available and were told by the greeter to "go back there and get a table". Their system needs some tweaking, I think.

My family and I went to celebrate my mom's birthday. The staff was wonderful, our server was very knowledgable and courteous. The food was amazing. We brought in our own cake and they cut the cake and served it to us. Overall a great evening and nice ambiance. I had the surf and turf with the filet mignon. Delicious!

Totally disappointing

Dined on April 2, 2016

The food was absolutely sub par. I have had better food from taco bell. We ordered 4 different entrees and only one was edible. They boxed the uneaten food but no way were we interested in taking it. Price is high, portions are small. Additionally when we were there , on a Sat evening, the number of people with crying kids was ridiculous. I was surprised and disappointed as we had been told it was good. Save you money. Lots over better places around.

A Mainstay in town

Dined on March 18, 2016

I love Maya - it is nestled into a busy part of Oak Park but not so busy that you can't easily find or get to it. Parking is another issue; but that really is on the village of Oak Park....not the restaurant. The food and drink options at Maya are really great...it's not your run-of-the-mill choices or options. The food choices are based on Latin American dishes with a little flair of other cultures mixed in. Everything is really tasty! I can bring my 2 kids and have a nice meal; have a girls night out and have plenty of drinks and laughter; or cuddle up with a date and enjoy the ambiance. It is diverse enough that Maya is a restaurant for all people and all occasions - that is rare. They even have live music on the weekends and that is a nice treat. They have an outside patio for those who like the outdoor feel and indoor choices for those who want to stay inside. Never, have I had an unfriendly waiter, bartender or a person from management approach me; everyone is trained well and sincerely friendly. You can join their diner program and receive a free entree on your birthday and can rack up points to take $$ off your meals. That's nice for people who will visit frequently. You can join their email list and receive weekly specials, promo's and holiday info. They offer valet parking and you can book reservations online, which are nice options. No real complains but understand that Maya is not a low-end restaurant, regarding price. I will say that it will not disappoint, so many will feel you get what you pay for. So, save your penny's and go to Maya for a nice treat. Just a great overall place...

Dined on March 11, 2016

The market ceviche was a disappointment. Digging through it, there were literally two tiny cubes of fish. We informed our waiter who replaced it with one that had plenty of fish. However, the taste was very bland and nothing like traditional ceviche. The margaritas and entrees were good, nothing spectacular. Dishes including the salsa lacked any hint of spiciness. Granted this is a fusion restaurant, but the most (only?) Latin aspect of our meal was the margaritas. Still enjoyed the evening overall. Might return if I'm not looking for authentic Latin American food.

Once again Maya del Sol provided a wonderful venue for 3 couples. The restaurant was welcoming. We were seated at the time of our reservation. The server made excellent suggestions. Nachos del Sol is still the best appetizer known to man. The six of us argued over who had the absolutely best entrée. All were terrific!

The food, service, and ambiance were all excellent. The only issue, which was a small one, was that the band was very loud in the bar, which made conversation in the back room a little difficult. Luckily they were starting as we were leaving.

Maya del Sol was a phenomenal experienal. The enviorment is romantic and soothing yet cultural. My fiance and I ordered the shoes surtidos, which are exquisite. I ordered the Carne Asada with brussel sprouts and potatoes mix and a side of frijoles negros and she had the cochinito with frijoles negros. The food was amazing and very well seasoned. For desert we ordered the delicious crepas de cajeta with a Mexican coffee. I absolutely love cajeta and their blend with crepas was amazing. It reminded me of my days in Celeya GTO Mexico. I will definitely return here. It is a gem in Oak Park.

Comfortable atmosphere. Great place for a new food experience. Appetizers were much better than the main course. It was nice that the special menu for Valentines Day came with suggested wine pairings printed on the menu. There needed to be more wait staff, as they seemed to 'get lost' once you placed your order. restaurant got really busy and much too loud for a romantic atmosphere...it was more fun and flirty...much like a first date!
