Did not get glutened here, but was underwhelmed by the food. GF options were marked on the menu, but there were very few and they were all seafood and salads. Waiter seemed clueless about celiac. Quality and taste was not equal to the many great Mexican places in town. It's a cute atmosphere, but I won't be back.
I ate chips & salsa, sprite and the garlic prawns dish. I asked all the questions, dedicated fryer, etc and was given the right answers but ended up getting glutened!!
I was so excited to find a Mexican restaurant with gluten free options! They have gluten-free items clearly labeled on the menu and the servers seem to be educated on it. However, I wish I had asked more questions before trusting Mayahuel completely. I ordered the chips and guacamole and a bowl of their (delicious!) poblano soup. I should have been thorough in checking to ensure the chips are made in a dedicated fryer. The soup came with what I thought was a corn tortilla strip as garnish, but when I took a bite it tasted more like a flour strip? I'm not exactly sure, but a day later I am having a symptom flare-up, which I have not had since going strict gluten free. I may try Mayahuel again, because having a place to go out with friends to (without getting sick) is so important to me, but next time I will need to be much more thorough and ask plenty more questions. If I do, I will update with another review. The food was amazing! If you are not a Celiac and eat gluten-free for other reasons, I definitely recommend this place!
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Mayahuel. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable, the menu was labeled clearly, and the food was terrific. The only entrees labeled gluten-free were sea food dishes, but this was offset by a range of gluten-free appetizers, salads, and stews. I'm also dairy-free, and the kitchen modified one of the gf dishes to suit my needs. Ambiance was urban without being uncomfortably 'upscale' or 'hip.' Will return.
Excellent......Food, atmosphere and service! This was my second visit to this wonderful establishment, both times have been amazing. The first time was brunch and I enjoyed every moment and bite. The second visit was dinner and was better than the first which was hard to believe. The Totopos con Chile was great as was the Ensalada Tropical and thankfully I got to try the Pozole Verde con Pollo. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, but especially to those looking to eat Gluten Free.
The service was great. Really cool place to go eat. It is definitely full of suites during the day. The menu was fantastic! The majority of the menu is Gluten Free. My only problem came from the soup the give you as soon as you sit down. There was no ordering of it and when I asked a passing waiter if it was gluten free he said yes, but with no confidence. I didn't eat it. But the rest of the food was delicious! Definitely want to go back again some day!
Mayahuel has numerous gluten free options. Delicious food, great atmosphere and wonderful service!
