As always, food was very good - they do a fantastic job with their sides/veggies. We sat outside, and it was very pleasant.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
