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.
Meals were well prepared. Chop was tender and served with a very tasty and unique reduction. Fried oysters were as good as we've had elsewhere. Apple cake bread pudding was amazing! We'll return, you should try!
The service with Ted was excellent!! The crab cakes and fried oysters were out of this world good. We will be back.
Awesome experience! I had the crab cakes and my sister had the trout. Both meals were delicious.
The food was fantastic and the staff was super friendly. Safe and comfortable environment.
We were really looking forward to trying Maya and the menu looked great - we were planning on a full evening of dinner, desert, and drinks. Unfortunately the waitress was so rude and unfriendly we kept our orders to a minimum and left as quickly as possible. The food was fairly good, but given the poor service we won't be back.
We had an early reservation so the restaurant was mostly empty. Our waitress was delightful, the food was delicious. We had desserts to go and they were scrumptious! A great experience!
Great service, ok food, ok prices. The side dishes were amazing though!
Consistently outstanding. With a party of 5 we ordered across the menu. Everything was well prepared, well presented, and delicious. You must go!
We went to Maya based on a recommendation from our hotel clerk and LOVED it! Amazing ribs, delicious sides, and one of my wife's favorite espresso martinis! Highly recommended!
Best fried catfish I've ever tasted (and I've had it many times). Really great sides. Loved the local mushroom/goat cheese appetizer. The outdoor tent space kept me and my date feeling really Covid-safe. It poured rain while we were there but we stayed dry and plenty warm in the tent. Thanks for a great evening.
Seating layout is nice and safe, love the new art gallery!
Great outdoor, Covid friendly dinner. Food was great, nice assortment and each main comes with two sides. Gluten free options
Maya never disappoints
Excellent food and service. Dined outside with heaters. Very comfortable.
Excellent anniversary dinner. Great location and ambience. Felt very safe and clean despite pandemic reality. Great service. Food was delicious and I’d say best key lime pie I’ve had period.
The food was absolutely delicious! The staff attentive. Having to sit underneath the tent and having an hour and a half to eat did not effect our evening. The staff was efficient and we did not feel rushed.
Everything was delicious and the seating outside was comfortable.
Food was good, we woukd skip the grits next time, very bland. Sadly,our server was bland too we felt as if we were a bother. There was another server who brought out our food & was engaging and welcoming. The food & ambiance overall was quite nice but the waiter caused an otherwise lovely evening to be pedestrian at best.
Always a winner! The food and service is exceptional
Very dissapointed! Our server and most of the servers we came in contact with were incredibly rude. We were treated as if we were bothering them by being there. Our party was very respectful of their thurough mask policies however were explained them many times by multiple people in a very condescending manor. Our server then sat a number of times at a nearby table with a party that was completely mask free and removed her own each time to conversate throughout our entire dinner, as our drinks were ignored. Food was okay but not worth the horrible experience.
Amazing food and service was good. However if having staff wear shirts and face masks that push their political preferences offends you then not the place for you. This has no place in a business atmosphere and businesses should disallow this regardless of affiliation. I likely won’t return if that person is still working there.
Wonderful service. Very friendly staff. The food was very good. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes, ribs and salmon. The Candied Ginger Beets were fantastic!
Our food was excellent and the heated patio was quiet. Great compliance with COVID restrictions
They were great about spreading the tables out and enforcing wearing masks arms well as give us a great dining experience
The person who took our order and served was not friendly and appeared to just be going through the motions. One of our orders was unproperly cooked and was sent back. Overall, not what we expected.
We had a great experience and appreciated the attention the staff and patrons paid to the safety precautions. I felt safe, comfortable, and welcome. Excellent food, drinks, and service. Thank you!
Sooooooo delicious!! Drinks and food are amazing!!
Good food and drinks. Server was attentive.
Six of us all ordered different meals and they were all outstanding! I had the pork tenderloin, mac and cheese and broccoli and it was DELICIOUS!!! We ate outside in their covered area and had no issues -- the restaurant cleans tables thoroughly after each guest leaves so felt reassured. I love Maya's -- it is definitely a favorite for me and my family when in Charlottesville.
Great outdoor patio
New male host who was there on Sunday is rather rude and abrupt so unlike the rest of the staff.
Excellent food and service. Our server, Mary was fabulous. Outdoor dining only due to the pandemic. It was a little dark in our outdoor corner but all the precautions taken are appreciated. The food was outstanding. We visited the area for 3 days and ate out everyday and MAYA was definitely the best meal we had. Thanks to our bartender at Oakhurst Inn for the recommendation
Prior experiences at Maya had me craving for more of their great food and good service. Again, they lived up to my expectations. The pimiento cheese fritters were crisp & delicious. The creaminess offset by the spicy chili sauce. Our dishes ranged from gumbo, pork tenderloin and crab cakes. No complaints from any of us. The wine list is short but accessable. COVID dining is under a large tent on the patio. We all felt comfortable and it appeared all staff was following current guidelines.
Food is always great but the service this particular night was not great. Waitress seemed very uninterested in wiring on us.
Everything we ate was delish and Southern. We especially liked the fried cheese balls, the catfish and the peanut pie. And the Negroni's were perfect. Get thee there.
Great job setting up outdoor seating and dining during these times.
