Valentines Day- menu was pre-set. Appetizers dried out as if prepared well in advance. Food not as good as usual. Suspect that due to busy day, food not quite what it usually is, as I have eaten here several times previously.
Always a great evening out at Maya - terrific food and the best martinis ever!
Didnt like being seated in back room directly below a ramp.
The food is a modern take on Southern comfort food and is excellent. Service is attentive and accommodating--these folks aim to please. Very good wine list and cocktails. Outside seating is available when weather permits. One of Charlottesville's Top 10!
Good value for great food, but limited menu choices.
I give credit to Maya for providing a varied and interesting menu for restaurant week and putting forth an A plus effort. Our appetizers and entrees were excellent and did not suffer from being part of a busy week. The desserts were less successful. The carrot cake parfait was a better concept than a reality. The wine list was reasonably priced and the pours were generous. Our server was very attentive.
I agree with other reviews that the downstairs dining room (not the bar room) is bland and needs some love.
Maya - For Family & Friends
Was traveling from NJ to Charlottesville, and made a res for Maya based on internet search - needed good food for a party of 5 in a relaxed atmosphere. We happened to attend during restaurant week and found the selection to be varied and very broad. The presentation and service was great. Good drinks, relaxing atmosphere.
Next time I am in town this will be a go to restaurant!!
Food was great, service was spotty. The waiter was super nice but things came out randomly and a few apps were missing (which he took off the bill). What we got was delicious, however, so if you’re patient, you will enjoy the meal!
We had a wonderful meal during Charlottesville Restaurant Week. Our server was outstanding, and each course was delicious. Thank you for a lovely evening!
Everything wa well done. We went to try for restaurant week and we will be back.
The grits here set the bar for the tastiest in C'ville. They are rich and cheesy and the perfect accompaniment for the tasty dishes at this comfy restaurant.
Cocktails were fabulous as well as the food! Great service and a cute atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Went for restaurant week. I loved the steak. My friend got the duck and was pleased but wished she had chosen the steak.
