Giant portion, good food. The meals are tasty, but nothing spectacular. The service was a bit on the slow side, but overall a great experience. The desserts were amazing. I loved the white sangria.

Maria's is probably the best Latin restaurant on Long Island. The menu has so many choices from different Latin countries, not just Mexican. The paella was delicious with fresh seafood. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly.

The service was slow and inattentive. Took way too long to bring beverages and then a very prolonged wait for soup course. However, the food was delicious and beautifully presented so I would return. Authentic dishes, delicious plantains.
