    I have reservations for Maya Grill on Saturday. I've heard a few people say how amazing it was, so I was just wondering if anyone had ate there recently and wanted to share their view on it.

    IMO, Maya is a hidden gem. My family loves it. The Seafood Skillet appetizer is the bomb!

    Our Ratings of Maya Grill Breakfast-Lunch // Dinner: (9/16/2012)
    . . . food price value: B // C
    . . . food quality: C // C
    . . . food quantity per serving: A // C
    . . . food prep speed: A // C
    . . . food selection: C // B
    . . . seating quantity: C // C
    . . . seating comfort: C // C
    . . . eatery atmosphere: B // B
    . . . eatery convenience: D // D
    . . . staff friendliness: B // B
    . . . staff attentiveness: C // D
    . . . character interaction: n/a

    NOTE: Breakfast and lunch are buffets, with dinner being a
    traditional ala carte menu. The pricing for the buffets is very
    reasonable for WDW, but the dinner price is slightly high for
    the food quality and quantity. The breakfast/lunch buffets are
    well above average and quite tasty. However, the service does
    leave a lot to be desired as dirty dishes were not cleared timely
    and drink refills were hard to come by. The dinner, in comparison
    left a lot to be desired, and does not warrant a second visit, let
    alone a first visit. If you can spare the time and trouble to get
    to the eatery, the buffets are worth the effort, and the eatery
    scenery is quite attractive.

    We loved it when it first opened. It was Nuevo Latino cuisine -- fun, delicious and different. Now, it's just an average steak and chops house. We used to go and just have a variety of appetizers for dinner as the appetizers retained some of the interesting flavors and Latin influences. But, as of about 3 years ago we quit even doing that as we felt the quality and creativity of the appetizers had declined. There are places we like much better.

    Rusty, is this possibly a review of Pepper Market not Maya Grill?

    I wasn't aware that the Maya Grill was open for three meals.

    I was there August 2011 and as a Hard Core Foodie I was pleasantly surprised at how GOOD everything was! I was there (only) for supper.

    1) I have to revise the breakfast/lunch listing.
    2) We had breakfast/lunch in 2011 and dinner in 2012.
    3) Now, I see the hours as only 5:00pm-10:00pm.
    4) I didn't know they bounced the daytime meals.

    NOTE: Maya is listed on the 2011 DDP brochure for breakfast,
    but only dinner on the 2012 brochure. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    We too ate there in Sept '11 and it was one of the best meals we had on the trip. I would recommend it to go and enjoy. It wasn't crowded and the food was A+ for us.

    We felt exactly this way too after staying at CSR for many years that the menu was unispiring after such a good start. Gave it another try this past Sept. and was pleasently suprised. They've changed to a deluxe tex/mex type menu and the food was very good! For a few years they couldn't figure out what they wanted to be and it showed. Seems they've got more focused now and we will be back again. Not as good as when they first opened but Maya Grill has definitely improved over their "lost years".
