Diner Reviews
  • "We thought we found a real great place in the heart of Marfa. However, the prices for both wine & food were way too high for the quality of the product. The food was pretty good while the prices were pretty high."

  • "Of course when you visit west Texas your options are going to be limited but the food here gets the basics right. Marfa isn't exactly a foodie destination so as long as you put that into context most people should enjoy the food here. Service was great, professional and our party pretty much had everything refilled or refreshed without us having to ask. Like the town, everyone was friendly and while not memorable of a dining experience, it's a very solid choice for a good meal while in town."

  • "I had read good reviews on OpenTable and other sites about Maiya but I have to say - it still exceeded my expectations. The food was really good. Home made pasta is not what you expect in a tiny town in the desert, but Maiya had great food and service. The wine list was also impressive and the prices quite reasonable. If you are anywhere in the area - (which in West Texas means within a 100 miles) go here and have a nice dinner."

  • "Delightful evening with compelling atmosphere, friendly service and wonderful food."

  • "We'd heard praise from locals – and from the restaurant's press machine – and for the most part, it stood up. But why not make all pastas in house? And why overcook precious, wild caught salmon to the point it's tough? And why not some gluten-free options, like risotto? Service was rough, to the point our waiter (some what laughingly), said "I can't do this job!" Cute, but at $20+ per entree, I expect the machine to be a little more well-oiled."

  • "It took forever to be waited on. We ordered appetizers and the waiter had to be reminded. Our entrees took over an hour to prepare and be served. We had reservations for six and they added a 20% tip. I would not have tipped that much for the very poor service we received. I had eaten at Maiya's numerous times and loved it. I brought my son and his family because I wanted to take them to a nice restaurant. BIG MISTAKE!"

  • "Overall the dining experience was excellent. I had the spinach lasagna and my girl friend had the free range chicken, both were very good. Half a chicken was a bit much for her so I helped out. I had heard from friends about this place and the reviews were all good so we drove three hours for Valentine's dinner. It was worth it. The service was A+."

  • "We enjoyed a wonderful evening meal on Valentine's Day. Food was excellent, staff was friendly and we will definitely be back."

  • "Maiya's was an interesting find in Marfa (I live in Houston) Pro's: Food was good and Maiya's has a great wine list. The restaurant decor is fantastic and I'm sure the clientele is "who's who" of Marfa. Con's: Entrees were overpriced, which was strange when the appetizers and desserts were not. The service was not good. The tables around us seemed to get quite good service but we had to ask for everything (water, bread, silverware, more water, etc.). We ordered a bottle of wine and it took 30 minutes to get it to the table. I was afraid that the entrees would appear before the wine but it took an hour to get the entrees so it "worked out". Can I recommend the restaurant to a friend? Sure, but because of a lack of choice in Marfa."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The food, service and atmosphere were great as usual. However, the online menu lists Bass Ale and Newcastle Ale as available. I have had Bass there on more than one occasion. However, they did not have either and the waitress told me she had worked there for five years and they had never had Bass. As I said I have had it more than once and I only discovered Maiya's two years ago."

  • "Had a really great meal just steps from the hotel. A nice surprise!"

  • "Marfa is a tiny town so dining options are understandably limited. Maiya's proved acceptable overall, pouring drinks to the brim was a definite plus, but everything is overpriced. The cafe across the street had arguably the same quality food for a fraction of the price. I would return in the future perhaps for apps and drinks, but I'd recommend you fill up somewhere else beforehand unless you're willing to drop the big bucks."

  • "Maiya's was crowded on Wednesday night, most likely because another quality restaurant in town is closed until the 16th. Service was very slow and our food was overcooked - portions of both my entree and desert were burnt! I should have sent both back to the kitchen, but I was hungry and did not want to wait another half hour for replacements. Hopefully our experience is not the norm. If so, there are better dining options in Marfa."

  • "Beautiful Italian food in west Texas. Wonderful, simple dishes and the best steak I've had in a long time."

  • "Dinner for three - everything was delicious and perfectly presented. Service was friendly and easy-going. Tables were turnin', bar was rockin'. Perfect!"

  • "I had high hopes for Maiya's but left a little disappointed. Interesting menu but pricey. Excellent service - the hostess was very friendly as was our waiter. Unfortunately the food left something to be desired. Between the 4 of us we ordered the duck, funghi lasagna, the beef, and the lamb. The duck was $29.00 which I thought was expensive. The duck had little flavour and what flavour there was was overpowered by the pear relish. My husband's lasagna was burned and pretty tasteless. The beef got a rave review as did the lamb. The creme brulee was was very rich. I had the pumpkin tart which I thoroughly enjoyed - very nice spices with a nut crust. The raspberry sorbet was good as well. Good martini's ($12)."
