Best meeting and eating place in town! Lively atmosphere, great bartender! Food is excellent!
Great service, great food, great drinks, and great atmosphere. What more could you ask for? We thoroughly enjoyed dinner on the patio. Thank you!
As always, food was very good - they do a fantastic job with their sides/veggies. We sat outside, and it was very pleasant.
Maya is one of our favorite restaurants in town and this week did not disappoint. The food was great as was the service. We really enjoy our meals here and can't remember ever having a bad one in many years.
Unique food and very tasty!
Great menu! Everyone’s food was warm and tasty. Our server was helpful. We’ll be back!
Had dinner with my father and we ordered Hanger Steak and Cornish Game Hen, both were excellent along with sides of Collard Greens (a first for me) and Cornbread. Dinners were terrific, but desserts were even better Key Lime Pie and Citrus Buttermilk Pound Cake!
Ate outside and their patio is awesome! Wish we were further back from the road. Noise wasn’t terrible; alas, it does make it uncertain when a car with a loud muffler/sound system is going to stroll by and interrupt the conversation.
First time out with friends since the start of the pandemic. It was a lovely evening!
Amazing food and great service! We recommend this to everyone who likes upscale southern cookin...
This was definitely a great dining experience. We had the red pepper bisque for starters and it was outstanding. I had trout and my wife had the fried oysters and both were delicious. The waitress and staff were attentive making it a great night out.
Food was excellent. Waitstaff friendly and efficient. Had a very good experience.
Our servers were excellent. Unique menu and all 3 of us with different meals. Couldn't help but try a little from all.
Wonderful food and service. The room we were in was not very nice.
Overall very good. We enjoyed the pimento cheese appetizer and both the collard greens and Brussel Sprouts.
Excellent. AND I had the best sazerac of my life!!
Maya was outstanding! My food was delicious. However, the drink I ordered was not as great. It tasted like straight vodka.
Our salmon & trout were excellent as was the side spinach & potatoes. Disappointed in salad (came heated - not expected) excellent gimlet & nice wines. Would recommend!
Food was great, well presented and hot. Staff was very helpful. Bacon brussell sprouts side was best I have ever tasted. Wifes crabcakes were good, but not Maryland style she was expecting. Still very delightful and would go back for sure.
We chose this restaurant because it was within walking distance of the hotel we were staying at. The food was good but I was disappointed that it wasn't piping hot when it was brought out to the table. Service was great.
Their outdoor space was great even though It was rainy outside! Food and cocktails were great, would definitely recommend for a nice, fun meal with friends.
Excellent food, service was good. I really wanted a regular menu and not to look at a menu on my phone, though.
Very nice and attentive waitress. Excellent food. Desserts were average.
One of my husbands favorite restaurants in cville. He Loves the catfish! A bit disappointed it wasn’t on the menu but the trout was good. Great service great drinks and we had a terrific waitress. Even with fewer tables, it’s a bit loud in there for a date and we were seated at the weird little two top at the bottom of the ramp. Overall always a good choice for dinner tho.
Food was mediocre. The side Mac and cheese had no zero flavor. Overall... unimpressed
It’s always great. We go every week!
I had the hanger steak. Very good. But the most outstanding dish was the fresh sauteed spinach.
Of course the fried oysters were very good. We always get them when we go to Maya.
Three of the four entrees were bland and needed more seasoning. The salmon, Brussels sprouts, and desserts were very good.
Food service and attention to detail outstanding as usual! I always look forward to creative and delicious cocktails here!!
Delicious food and great service
Always great. We sit in the bar area during chilly weather. Love it! Favorite restaurant in Cville.
Fabulous dinner, we ate inside and the tables were nicely spaced out!
Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Maya. So good to be back! Lovely outdoor/tented dining. Food was outstanding as it has been in the past. Maya celebrated two of my daughters' with dessert and b-day candles. Lovely evening! Thank you!
What a joy to be able to go out to eat inside one of our favorite restaurants! We've both been vaccinated X 2 and felt so comfortable with how Maya had things set up, as well as the courtesy of the staff. Just a simple touch of what things used to be like... and hopefully soon will be for all!
Always good good, always good service. Ted is always a pleasure, making fitting in the bar area our first choice.
We had two birthdays and Maya was the perfect place to celebrate, we always enjoy!
Indigo was a fantastic server. She was attentive and had a great attitude which really made the experience even more enjoyable. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was perfect for date night.
Great food presentation and the service was superb. More than enough food and every one was attentive. They were cautious and careful following COVID guidelines. Very enjoyable evening.
A perfect valentines date night! Food blew us away and was well worth the price. Covid precautions made us feel extremely comfortable and we loved the service. 10/10 will be back!!
Maya has a great menu, extremely thoughful and carefully prepareed food. The drinks from the bar were good, but I never had a chance to look at the cocktails, because we only had one phone to look at the menu.
Abigail was amazing and they were able seat us early, which was good forca hungry 9 year old.
