The main dish was fantastic. Caesar salad was weird. Waiter was pleasant, but rarely asked if we needed anything. Overall, very good experience and definitely will come back.

I had the gnocchi and my friend had the red corn polenta. Best meal we’ve had in a long time.
We’ll be back next time we’re in Tucson.

The food was terrible. I had the Caesar salad and could barely identify the parts. No hard boiled egg, very little cheese. There were other parts that i have never seen in such a salad. For desert I had the bread pudding. Most of the bread was tough and unpleasant. We looked forward to our meal at Maynards because the restaurant used to be our favorite. Not any more.

Truly excellent. All entrees — scallops, veal, duck confit—were of high quality and nicely presented. Very good service. Half- price bottles of wine on Sunday an added bonus. Not a major issue, but one of our party was handicapped, and there are two steps down into the main dining area.

Thank you for the great review. Glad you enjoyed the half priced wine on Sundays. Sorry about the steps, we are having to work with what our historical building gives us at times. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

It our waiter more than 10 minutes to acknowledge us. When the entrees arrived they had to ask who was getting each entree. Our dessert order took a ridiculous amount of time to arrive. We've eaten at Maynard's before and had good experiences. It will probably be a while before we go back.

I would like the opportunity to speak with you so I can find out a little more about the experience. I sent you a private message to continue the conversation about your dinner. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

The atmosphere is great. Our server was competent and friendly. But the food let us down, Salad did not seem fresh and my seafood was in a sauce which buried its flavor.

We will give the brunch a try.

Price fixe menu for Valentine’s Day had a variety of tastes, colors, and textures that was nicely presented. The $85 p/p charge and automatic 20% after tax added to check is excessive for Tucson. Reasonable prices for wine. Friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable server.

As usual, we love our time at Maynards; food, the people, the ambiance, the staff.
Only critique on the food; the squash in the gnocchi was uncooked and inedible. We sat at the bar and service was slow. Weren't able to say anything to the bar tender until he came to clear our plates. We let the manager know. The pork belly dish was excellent. I wish there was more pork than fat on the serving. Otherwise had a good evening.
