Dude, the fish tacos!!! I just went here today, by happenstance, around lunch time, after finding that Café a Coté next door was closed. I hadn’t ever been here before, but I was starting to get hangry from the heat and my empty stomach, and the restaurant smelled really good. They’ve recently expanded their outdoor seating area due to the COVID pandemic, and also require that all guests wear masks when entering and until seated. The staff were very friendly and inviting, and service was prompt. It’d been forever since I’d had some fish tacos, so I ordered those, and oh my god those were the best fish tacos I’ve ever tasted in my life. The presentation was impeccable, as well. It comes with three tacos served in a blue corn tortilla (which I’d never seen before except for blue corn chips, so that was cool), and a side of rice. The rice was also fresh delicious. This is a great spot to gather with friends or family for some authentic Mexican cuisine. There’s also a really cool mural of a rabbit on the side of the building, so you can admire some of Sacramento’s amazing street art while you enjoy your meal. Daniel F. ~ 5 star rating 7/12/2020 FB
As a Mexican myself I give ya 5 stars. One of my favorite Mexican food joints in Sac.

It was good to eat out again. The friendly staff met us a the door and made us feel like they had that whole social distancing thing down. The food was delicious and more than we could eat. They had an incredible selection of amazing tequila to compliment every dish.
~ Pamela Guerrero 6/19/2020 FB
Hands down the Best Tequila Bar/Mexican Restaurant in Sacramento! I have frequented Mayahuel for many years and have always had a wonderful experience. The food is savory and the drinks are fantastic. Mr. Delgado has created the most welcoming and enjoyable ambience. Last but not least, Francisco (Manager) such a gracious host, with a sensational personality and man does he know his tequila lol.
~ G B 2/23/19 Yelp
The food is amazing, love the authentic dishes. Never had a dish that wasn’t absolutely delicious! The service is always friendly and fast.
~ Melissa Murlphy-Correa 2/3/19 FB
Nice place! Great food and margaritas! Great dance floor and music on Cinco de Mayo! Their guacamole was especially tasty. Nice big outdoor seating for warmer weather. Might be hard to find parking during rush hours but there are a few parking garages nearby.
~ Lina R. 1/9/19 Yelp
We have an amazing experience every. single. time. that we come here. We always sit at the bar and first of all, let me say that service is outstanding. The bartenders are really friendly and attentive, not to mention the margaritas are delicious! I always order the enchiladas zapotecas, they are to die for, must try even if you’re not vegetarian. My boyfriend always gets the steak tacos. Love the decor on the inside. Last night they had a mariachi band playing. The only complaint I have is that they close really early, 11 pm on weekends.
~ Paula M. 1/20/19 Yelp
This place is the best mexican food outside my home I have had. We had their tacos poblanos and it was a nice surprise to see that they actually put a good amount of meat in them unlike other places where they put little meat. The meat was well seasoned well cooked and the tacos were fantastic. The best thing however was the mole, holy crap I swear that was homemade because it tasted like it. PERFECT is the only way I can describe it and the rice and plantain that accompany it were as well. The drinks were also perfect and they rounded out a completely perfect experience at this place, this has become our to go to spot for Mexican food, try it you will not be disappointed.
~ Humberto N. 2/24/19 Yelp
Service, on point. Mole, on point. Vegan options, overwhelming. Authentic food, spirits and they serve wine in a proper glass to boot. Can’t wait to try other options – although tacos de papa, sopa lentíl y hongos con spicy pistachio mole and enchiladas de pollo con (red) mole (off-menu and easily substituted) are certainly worth another go. Can’t wait for our next visit…and we haven’t even done the tequila yet!
~ Robin M. 1/20/19 Yelp
This hidden treasure should be yours too. This is a great place to go on a romantic date on. I love the art, music and food. I have not had any complaints on any of the food. I have always had a good experience.
~ Lucero O. 1/14/19 Yelp
This place was great. I ordered the 5 course vegan dinner and it was delicious. Our waiter was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, and checked on us frequently. Excellent service and food. Very happy with my first visit to Mayahuel.
~ Alissa H. 1/4/19 Yelp
This place is a gem! The food is carefully prepared with attention to detail and authenticity. I sat at the bar and Karen explained the menu, the individual dishes, and the cocktails. The bocaditos were spot on as was the mango chile cocktail. The rajas are tender and smoky, so definitely give that a try. The Sikil p’ak is very good and will easily substitute guacamole in my opinion. The albondigas were a bit acidic but still very tasty. I will make this a regular stop when I’m in Sacramento.
Thanks for your hospitality Karen!!
~ Robert M. 10/25/18 Yelp
Great service !
Had a awesome experience, delicious food . I had the enchiladas verdes and mangonaso. The enchiladas were great and loved the green salsa. I truly recommend this place. Specially how beautiful the art is . Our server name Ernesto was wonderful. He had a rush of other tables all at once and still managed to give us a great service. We will definitely be back soon.
~ Yeya G. 8/24/18 Yelp
We had the best Mexican food outside of Mexico! They satisfied every need, vegan, children and regular diners. The restaurant is lovely, service was fabulous, food delicious. On a Friday night without a reservation, they took in and seated 4 adults and 2 children. Excellent margaritas, too! We will return, when in the area! Thank you for taking in our family, after a full day at the California State Fair! We were tired, hungry, and perhaps underdressed, and you treated us like rock stars!
~ Karen Dean Keegan 7/21/18 FB
Thank you to Mayahuel for hosting a team of 11 educators last week! Even though it was lunchtime, they were able to seat our group in a timely and efficient manner. And the food, the food was delicious! I enjoyed the mole, which never disappoints. It’s got layers of flavors that you can almost hear sign in your mouth! All around the table, people made comments about how delicious their food was. A special shout out to Carlos for being our server. He was efficient, amiable, and had a great sense of humor! We will be coming back!
~ Ale U. 7/3/18 Yelp
This place is a Tequila Oasis. Aside from the wonderful selection of tequilas, the food is Delicious. The Poblano soup taste like a Chile Rellenó. Amazing! The margaritas are on point. Will visit here again next time I’m in town.
~ Marcos V. 7/2/18 Yelp
We LOVE this place! We have enjoyed dinner and drinks at this place before heading to the Community Center Theater many times… great food, great drinks, and the bartenders and wait staff are awesome!!! Highly recommend!!!
~ Sherry R. 5/16/18 Yelp
Great service, great food, amazing Margaritas! We came in here after seeing a movie across the way and they seated us promptly and checked in on us often. We ordered an appetizer and some tacos. For the price of the tacos there was a ton of meat on each of them. We decided to order margaritas and did not regret it! You could tell it was great tequila and the mix was made in house. Will definitely come again.
~ Matt H. 1/2/18
LOVE this PLACE! Such good authentic Mexican food. Also the customer service was great as well. I hope to be returning soon.
~LD 1/29/18 Yelp
Flavorful and unique, one of the best dining experiences in downtown Sacramento. Go today. You won’t regret it.
~ Larry H. 2/24/18 Yelp
Definitely my favorite Mexican restaurant in the Sacramento area. The restaurant has a great vibe, fun and full of energy. We love the food and the margaritas are delicious. We have been there twice and both times had great service. Even though the restaurant was packed, the food came out perfectly. Our server, Alex was amazing, we can’t wait to go back again.
~Melissa M. 3/5/18 Yelp
NEVER EVER EVER have I ever had a more delicious pozole.I love pozole and have tasted MANY. It was a verde pozole. I almost think i will fly back just to eat at the restaurant. I compliment the restaurant and the chefs for such creativity.
I am from LA so Mexican food on every street. This place is at the TOP of its game. Everything we ordered was so delicate and vibrant. If you are from Sacramento and want to try a restaurant that has great flare check this place out. I was at lunch so I could not tequila taste but next time!!
~K.P. 3/4/18 Yelp
Wow!! The pumpkin dip was AMAZING!! Great original flavors with a modern twist on Mexican food classic dishes, like their green pozole. My friends had the mole and said the same things. Try their original mazapán ice cream! This should be a regular spot for our sac town peeps 😉
~Adriana L. 3/10/18 Yelp
I loved this place. It’s become a tradition for my colleagues to come here after our lobby day events. I had the carnitas urapan, which was delicious.
~ Crutch M. 3/20/18 Yelp
Loved it! I was part of a group of 6 ladies and we all left happy. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was fantastic. We tried the guacamole, and three of us shared a shrimp dish, a carnitas dish and the tacos poblanos. They were all excellent! All of the girls raved about the cucumber water which was a nice touch! The margaritas were a little too fufu for my taste but they were still good. Can’t wait to go back and try the tequila tasting bar!
~ Kari B. 3/27/17 Yelp
We came up to Sacramento for a weekend from Los Angeles. Now you know we have great places to eat but I’m so happy I found a wonderful gem in SAC.. Authentic fresh homemade elegant Mexican food. Wonderful atmosphere. Exceptional customer service!! Ernesto our waiter charming, amazing and so helpful with information on their wonderful dishes. We will be returning here on our next visit to the area for sure.
~ Maria G. 3/10/17 Yelp
Had a great Sunday breakfast. The omelette with black refried beans substituted was a delicious combination. Great service and enjoyed dinning on the patio with fantastic weather to boot.
~ Larry S. 4/30/17 Yelp
The Pozole omg!!!! The Mazapan ice cream !! Heaven !!!! I’ll be coming back for sure and try the Tamarindo Margarita and ceviche.
~ Blanca M. 3/7/17 Yelp
I think this is a very solid higher end Mexican food place. I have been here around 5 times and it is my go to place to take out of town. friends. I have loved every dish I had but have to point out this appetizer dip made of pumpkin seeds. I cannot remember what it is called but it is delicious! My husband loves a carnitas and I love the shrimp dish that is the last shrimp dish on the menu but I can’t remember what it’s called. Anyway it’s delicious. I don’t often eat chicken but the chicken mole is amazing.
~ At O. 3/19/17
Excellent fast and friendly service, the food was delicious and the ambiance was lovely! Will definitely make it a point to come here whenever I’m in town!
~ Jennifer Oliva 10/3/18 FB
We celebrated my daughters graduation here saturday evening. It was the perfect place the ambiance of the restuarant. The waiters were great attentive of our requests. Some in our party run late the waiters patiently waited. The food was amazing the chips and salsa were great. Then the Maraichi walked in and made things even better. Thank you to the waiters and Maraichi at Museo Tequila. You all made this an unforgettable evening for the graduate.
~ Elvia C. 6/19/17 Yelp
Love this place! Great service and nice location. Food is excellent, and they have great vegetarian options. The cocktails are delicious as well. I have no problems bringing friends, family, or a date to this place due to the confidence in food and service.
~ Nikhil S. 7/23/17 Yelp
Damaris and the team were amazing to work with! We hosted a reception in the Coa Room with the appetizers and drink tickets and were very happy with the results. The team was very accommodating and responsive to all of our questions and needs. I would definitely use them again in the future.
Thank you for helping make our event a success!
~ Lauren H. 1/12/17 Yelp
Great Service, Great Food! Our waiter Alvaro was excellent. We had my birthday dinner here , and was not disappointed.
~ Jimmika S. 6/13/17
This restaurant was more than exceptional! The food was FANTASTIC, service was stellar, and management, Francisco, helped us out so much and accommodated to every need for this dinner. I highly recommend this restaurant for business dinners , events, and even just for a night out with the family, friends, and loved ones! I will most certainly be returning and will always recommend this wonderful restaurant to my friends and family that travel to Sacramento. Thanks again for everything!
~ Casey C. 1/18/17 Yelp
We had an amazing time last night at Mayahuel! My husband and I had never been there and we are excited to go again. Outstanding food, beautiful atmosphere and exceptional staff!! Thank you for such a wonderful experience infused with a love of food and love of culture!!
~ Lori P. 1/22/17 Yelp
Was very impressed. Went last Thursday with a friend…The best Chicken mole,,,but more important,,,Adriana- bartender waitress was the Best ever!, Service was awesome!!! Can’t wait to go back..
~ Gigi C. 12/6/16 Yelp
Four of us enjoyed happy hour here on a Wednesday night – excellent service and food. The margaritas were very good, and we shared a few appetizers (flank steak tacos and chicken tostadas), along with chips and tasty salsa. Will definitely be back!
~ Wendi D. 6/30/16 Yelp
Great food and service, the “mole enchiladas” where amazing, the atmosphere and decoration is awesome!! and the “mazapan” ice cream is superb!!! Best Mexican restaurant in Sacramento
~ Jordi G. 9/26/16 Yelp
Love the food here! Different taste experiences and great margaritas. Come back every time I visit Sacramento.
~ Laura H. 6/24/16 Yelp
Always enjoy Mayahuel! Their menu selections are creative and always delicious. Our server last night, Alavaro, was friendly and efficient. The restaurant’s seamless pacing and proximity to the Sacramento Community Center Theater make it a great pre-show choice.
~ Cam M. 3/18/16 Yelp
I was very impressed with the food here. Started off with the blue corn dobladitas and chips and guac. Had the crema poblana soup, which was very good, and the arrachera Mexicana for my main course. Everything came out fast and hot. I could tell the chips had been freshly fried just a few minutes before. The dobladitas were incredibly flavorful and I would go back just for that appetizer.
~ Anon I. 3/30/16
My wife and I dined here prior to a show at the community center theater by the convention center, just a short walk down K street (3-5 minutes).
Great vibe, lively music, and beautiful decor…finished perfectly with exquisite food! Authentic dishes from various regions of Mexico, including unique ingredients I have not encountered in other local Mexican restaurants.
The service was friendly, the food was tasty, and the price was very reasonable for the area. Well done, Tequila Museo…we will likely return for dinner to kick off our next date night!
~ Adam B. 3/18/16 Yelp
This is possibly my favorite restaurant in all of Sacramento. The poblano soup is amazing, and the signature margarita and sangria are sublime. The dish with shrimp, mushrooms, and poblano pepper strips is so delicious. I just love this place every time I come.
~ Jenny H. 2/5/16 Yelp
The food and drinks were both spectacular only to be outdone by the service. Ernesto was attentive but not lurking. He gave us suggestions when we inquired but only after asking about our tastes. He is a great server. Love this place and the decor is really nice too!
~ Karen F. 12/16/15 Yelp
I have been to Mayahuel quite a few times and stared going here because I work close by. I thought it was ok, and did go back. But then it got really bad, the service, the food, it just went downhill for me. I posted a truthful review and heard back from the owner. He apologized and asked that I return because this is not how he wanted his name and restaurant to be known. With caution I did return last Thursday. I was absolutely amazed. The waiter, Ernesto Munoz, has to be the best waiter around! He was gracious, and welcoming. He appeared to be happy we were there. He took the time to explain the food and how it was prepared. Our food arrived quickly and was well presented and in abundance. I had the Ceviche Acapulco de Camarón and it was so good. Everything was fresh and so flavorful, definitely my new favorite. My faith has been renewed in Mayahuel and I will certainly return for both lunch and dinner. The owner, Ernesto Delgado clearly listens and wants everyone who visits his restaurants to walk away feeling “amazed” and wants everyone to know he does appreciate them. His motto “It’s not only our job to care for our guest, it is our goal to Amaze them.” Mr. Delgado should be congratulated as he did accomplish this.
~ Patti N. 9/14/15 Yelp
Yucatecan influence to the cuisine is unique and muy sabroso! Try the Mescal based cocktails or a Mescal taster flight for a delightful old world experience. This place is the real deal for authentic Mexican food and drink.
~ Steve B. 7/15/15 Yelp
Alvaro, our waiter, was spot on…friendly, courteous, responsive…the consummate professional! The drinks and the cuisine…absolutely delicious! This was our 4th visit and we were just as impressed with the first visit as with this one. Can’t wait for our next visit!
~ Marc R. 6/29/15 Yelp
This is one of my favorite places to get a margarita (or 6) in Sac. The ingredients are top notch, the bartenders are top notch, and they’ll create something special for you if none of the house blends on the menu strike your fancy. The food is more upscale, generally made with high quality ingredients – this is not a greasy gut-bomb kind of place.
~ William S. 3/16/15
Savored every morsel of food. Variety of tequila to taste. Menu featured the regional delicacies. One of the best Mexican restaurants. Excellent food, service and ambience. I’m impressed. Would surely love to visit again and recommend others too! ~ Sushma B. 2/25/15 Yelp
We had dinner and drinks – delicious on all fronts. Not sure what the reviews are about bad service- our waiter was fast and very professional. We liked it so much we went back for breakfast – just as delicious. The Mexican coffee spiced with cinnamon was yummy.
~ Ruth H. 1/29/15 Yelp
Great food, delicious cocktails, friendly service. Chips and guacamole may be best in Sacramento. Bonus points for having good vegetarian options on the menu. Really nice decor and ambiance. It’s the kind of place I recommend to everyone who wants Mexican food. Writing this review is making me want to go there right now!
~Lillian M. 1/22/15 Yelp
Been here a handful of times. Came the first time with a Groupon deal…. The service is always great but tonight, our server, Alvaro, was exceptional. He was pleasant, efficient & very professional. Try happy hour here (3p-6p)… their sangria & Margaritas are YUM! You cannot go wrong ordering off their menu. We had the chorizo on bolillos as an appetizer & shared the fish tacos as well as the blue corn quesadillas with grilled chiles. AMAZING! Food always come out of the kitchen quickly. Tonight it only took us 40 minutes to have 2 cocktails each with the dishes listed above. Came here with 2 friends a couple months ago and took our time hanging out, cocktails, appetizers, dinner & dessert. We were there for 2 hours that time; the ambience & decor is fun and time flies while you’re here. Can’t wait to bring my mom who is a big food critic! Good job, we are customers for life!
~ Aída B. 1/15/15 Yelp
Took wife and 3 children to this restaurant Thursday night. We met owner of restaurant earlier that day walking down to new Sac arena under construction. Ernesto was very open about his restaurant, gave us a tour, went the 3 menu’s and huge tequila selection. We returned that dinner to a wonderful Mexican food experience and drinks. Please start with his green soup!!! All kids enjoyed. Service was also a 5.
~ Bob R. 10/11/14 Yelp
My daughter & I went to Mayahuel for dinner after seeing a movie at IMAX and the food was delicious. Our waiter, Ernesto Munoz, was the best, very attentive and great service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
~ Julie S. 9/23/14
Great spot to go with a group of friends or just a date night, especially on an evening when they have live music and dancing. Food is always excellent and drinks are top notch. I could literally spend hours here. Just a great atmosphere.
~ Bryan Y. 7/31/14 Yelp
We used Mayaheul’s catering service for a party in our home and the food and service was outstanding. Damaris was a dream to work with and everyone raved about the food. Great job. Highly recommend.
~ Robyn D, 6/8/14 Yelp
Love this place, been here 4 times and always have great food, ambiance, and margaritas. This time I had the steak tacos, meat was tender and spiced perefectly. Margaritas are not only tasty, but stong (so you know you’re getting your money’s worth). Service is quick and efficient. Keep in mind it can get pretty loud during dinner and late night. This is not cheap oversauced Mexican food, everything here is fresh, homemade, and elevated. Highly recommend!
~ Laniey F. 3/30/14
I’ve eaten here several times. I regularly host clients at dinner gatherings so I’m not taking any chances…nothing questionable and no losers. M has consistently been a winner, from atmosphere, to menu to the drinks. Seven of us are going there tonight–mole is the menu item of choice–and my mouth waters in anticipation!
~ Chris V. 3/25/14 Yelp
Here with friends trying the Dine Downtown, I have to say this place is great. Drinks and food were spot on. Wait staff wee attentive and helpful. I would recommend trying this place out and giving them an opportunity for you to come back. Salmon was great, poblano soup great, and fruit salad was great. Try it out peeps…let me know what you think..
~ Joey C. 1/12/14 Yelp
Wonderful Mole!!! With super tender chicken, and delicious corn tortillas. Add to this a lovely ambiance and interesting and varied menu. The bonus was a mini-serenade from our personable waiter, Vince Vicari, who delivered great service and had a great voice. This was a wonderful experience.
~Patty H. 1/3/14 Yelp
The best Mole Poblano I’ve had in this area. Will definitely go back again and again. Excellent service and classy atmosphere. Loved it!
~ Alesia G. 12/4/13 Yelp
Excellent food, drinks, & atmosphere. The owner, Ernesto, was very hospitable telling us about the art & bottle collections, & history of tequila & mezcal. It is nice to see the passion behind a business & not just the dollar signs. I’d like to make it to a tasting event soon.
~ Jason V. 11/16/13 Yelp
Great Experience with Great Food….Awesome Interior very polite staff….The food is authentic and they servers all work very hard to please the clients…I was very happy visiting and now is one of my hangouts.
~ Vicente G. 9/4/13
Amazing food, atmosphere and quality service. This is my favorite downtown/midtown sac spot and possibly the best mexican restaurant I have been to. Do not expect americanized mexican food here…everything is very authentic and has incredible flavors. I try to tell as many people about this place and havent hear 1 bad thing about their experience from any of my friends or family.
~ Sean R. 7/28/13 Yelp
I had a surprise birthday party for my husband’s 30th this past Saturday at Mayahuel. I want to say THANK YOU to all of the staff, bartenders and the owner for everything they did. The food was great; the servers and bartenders were very polite and ON TOP OF IT! They did much more than what I expected. My husband and everyone else had a great time. We had the back room set up for my party of 60 and it looked great! Good service is very important to me and did not disappoint. Thanks again Mayahuel!
~ Sophia C. 2/11/13 Yelp
My girlfriend and I have been here twice and have had good experiences both times. The service is very prompt and warm, we even got a table with no reservations when the place was packed. We were able to taste sauces before ordering and never had to ask for refills on drinks. The food was phenomenal, the skirt steak and pork chili verde were both very good, but the crema de chili poblano soup and seafood stuffed chili were transcendent! Next time I’m gonna check it out for happy hour.
~ Issac J. 2/1/13 Yelp
The best mole in the State. If you want fresh and good food then this is the place to go. Great staff and owners are the best. This is the place location in Sacramento to host parties in the back room.
~ Paul F. 1/26/13 Yelp
The Chef crafts complex, authentic flavors into his dishes. This is not Mexican street food; so don’t go looking for a jumbo burrito. Get the mole! I’m hoping that they add Mexican hot chocolate to their dessert menu.
~ Scott S. 1/13/12 Yelp
A group of us went here on a Tuesday for happy hour. It was my first time there and everything was delicious!!! I ordered the arrachera. Very very flavorful, perfectly thinly sliced steak. Mmm! Also I had myself a watermelon margarita. They have a specific name for it I believe. It tasted very refreshing! And I am not much of a margarita person, especially one on the rocks. The service and atmosphere was great as well. We will definitely be returning to this restaurant in the near future.
~ Janel B. 3/25/12 Yelp
My girlfriend and I ate here for the first time a few weeks ago. We’re both vegetarians and they have special menu for both vegetarians and vegans. They even list how they prepare the food on a separate grill from where the meat is cooked. The food was great, the drinks were delicious, and the service was great. We’re definitely going back.
~ Johnny F. 3/1/12 Yelp
Amazing place! We had the chorizo steak….EXCELLENT! The cocktails were wonderful….spicy kiss amazing! There was live mariachi music another wonderful key to this place. The service was the best I ever had! I would recommend this place to everyone. Greatest most amazing place I have been too! ~ Kristine D. 9/1/12
I love this place. I sat at the bar and had the education of a lifetime on the world of tequila. The bar tenders are very good at what they do and pay attention to both drink and food…..How refreshing is that? The food was amazing. Upscale taste without the upscale price! I can’t wait to go back.
~ Pinot Squirrel S. 3/8/12 Yelp
Excellent service, food, decor and vibe! Excited to find this great restaurant last night. Definitely a must for all Sacramentans!
~ Dianne K. 10/30/11 Yelp
The food was great! My wife an I went for dinner. There just happened to be a live mariachis band playing. My wife loved it. The dessert she picked was awesome. Tres leches cake I think.
~ Jose R. 6/25/11 Yelp
Cinco De Mayo at Mayaheul was had everything for everyone. What I liked most was that it was busy but not packed to capacity. You had room to move around and the bartenders were fast with getting out drink orders. most of all you could actually hold a conversation with out yelling at one another. Once again great job to Ernesto and all the staff at Mayaheul.
~ Frank O. 5/6/11 Yelp
Amazing atmosphere, food,decor and staff! The watermelon margaritas are fabulous!!!! The Chile Relleno was amazing!!! I will definitely be back! This is my new Hot Spot, Downtown!!!! If you haven’t been I recommend that you go, there is nothing like this in our area. It is most definitely one of a kind!!!!!
~ Dian R. 2/6/12 Yelp
Went to this place on new years and loved it. they had mariachi going on and the inside is really nice. the menu is definitely very Mexican, even the drinks are very Mexican which I loved, being half Mexican. my Asian date loved the enchiladas which had awesome sauce but didn’t like the spicy drink. I had the steak and chorizo which I loved. I would say be careful about not bringing people who aren’t into mexican food because they may not care for it. also maybe white people won’t like it as much as I did, but should try it out.
~ Tom P. 1/19/12 Yelp
I’ve twice visited Mayahuel and found it delightful both times! I don’t drink alcohol but my friends loved some of the specialty margaritas. The upscale Mexican cuisine is a nice alternative to the taquerias that I also love. If you’re on a date and would like to be serenaded in Spanish ask for Vince (not Latino but speaks/sings perfect Spanish) – your partner will be thrilled!
~ Adam H. 10/18/11
Margaritas Wow! Amazing ……The mango and watermelon are the best.
We were there late afternoon and sat at the bar. The two bartenders were hilarious and very attentive. Told us a little about Sacramento and the night life and helped us plan our evening since we were just visiting for the night. The ambiance is fun and classy. I can’t wait to go back. We had a great weekend in Sacramento!
~ Carly M. 7/5/11
Went here for the first time last night. I thought I knew a lot about tequila….I was blown away!!!
The bar tenders knew their stuff, shared wonderful stories, and gave us a sweet deal on our tab. The tequila selection was top notch, with very reasonable prices. We sat there, tasted 5 tequila samples and tasted one of the soups on the menu.
If you like tequila and want to learn about it’s history…you MUST GO HERE!!!
I’ll be heading back when I need some good quality tequila for a great price and experience.
~ Steven S. 9/4/11 Yelp
I have celiac disease and maintain a very strict gluten free diet. I am a nervous wreck about trying new places – but since I work downtown I needed to find someplace that I could count on for business meetings or lunches out. Tequila Museo Mayahuel is my go to choice. I have never been gluten contaminated by their tacos, beans or salads. And that’s pretty major in my life. So if you’re looking for a higher end option for lunch or dinner downtown and you’re worried about gluten this is an awesome choice. They also have a vegetarian menu if you’re one of those.
~ Ann T. Yelp 1/26/12
We met friends last night for dinner. The ambiance is spacey, pretty and classy. The museum affect will continue, so, because this is a new place, that’s ok.
The prices are very good. The beer selection is good. The only taquila I had was so nice I was able to sip it like a fine cognac, it was awesome!
The service was 6 star, this waiter explained everything in detail as far as the way the food is cooked etc..then while we were on cloud nine with the place he brings the chef over to meet us! The guy was very modest and polite speaking little to no English but he could see our appreciation for his talent, and he was pleased!
The menu is unlike any Mexican I have ever seen. This is REAL Mexican from Mexico food! The appetizers were off the chart delicious. All four of us were about falling out of our chairs from the flavors of our dishes. We all ordered something different, we all said this place is now in our top 5 restaurants and the top 1 as far as Mexican goes.
We are going again this Sat. for our anniversary dinner.
I suggest going for dinner soon because when this place really takes off, there will be a long wait, trust me.
~ Angelo P. 6/4/11 Yelp
If you haven’t been to this restaurant yet, you should check it out. The food was outstanding, and the service, ambiance, and…margaritas (!!!) were top notch. (Try the watermelon.) Our group enjoyed our meal in the Coa room (facing the giant mural) complete with tequila tasting and a three course meal. Everyone in our group LOVED the experience. (Even the uber-foodies were raving over the meal). It was more than just a delicious meal, though; it was a night we’ll never forget. Mayahuel is wonderful!

I went there on St. Patrick’s night at 9:00 with a party of 15. We had no problem at all with the service. Drinks were ordered and delivered promptly. Food was ordered and delivered promptly. It was delicious. Granted, I was very intoxicated but everyone else was raving about the food as well so I know it wasn’t just me 🙂 I’m going back again tonight because I can’t wait to try the rest of the menu. I’m usually the kind of guy that likes one thing and sticks to it but I’m willing to venture through the rest of the menu at this place!

This place is GREAT. They brought a little mini taco after we sat down. The flavor was very light. Their menu was very interesting with some great salads and great main dishes. The chef came out to chat with us. The service was as good as the food. I will definitly be going back!

I just tried today for lunch and it was awesome! Loved the outdoor seating area and the little appetizer they gave us was really good. I had the chicken tacos with their homemade sauce, delicious! I would definitely recommend this place. Also price point was good 🙂

Our first experience here was AMAZING!! Awesome food, drinks, ambiance and the staff was exceptional. Our waiter even brought the chef/owner to our table so we could meet the person responsible for making such a fantastic meal. The prices were also very reasonable. We cannot wait to go back! Highly recommend you try this place; you will not be disappointed!!

AMAZING!!!! I have raved about Mayahuel to all of my friends and coworkers. The food has been amazing everytime so have the drinks. I told a co-worker of mine about mayahuel who is from mexico. He took his wife and confirmed that this trully is authentic mexican food. Not california mexican, not tex-mex but real authentic mexico mexican. He said that the mole is just how his grandmother made it. My mom also said the same thing. It is very difficult to please her with mexican food, and mole is one of her favorite dishes. She said she finally found the mole she had been looking for. The desserts are pretty good too. I hate rice pudding tapioca andy thing like that but ..OMG.. their rice pudding was amazing it had wonderfull texture and flavor i loved it. Oh ya very important info: The Chef makes his mole from scratch. I have asked other well known mexican restraunts in sacramento if they make their mole from scratch and the answer is always no. Come here to taste what mexican food should taste like.
