Everything was great, we had a lovely time. The only complaint is that we had to ask for a refill of our tables (there were only 2 of us) water pitcher 5 times before it was refilled even though it wasn’t very busy. All in all would highly recommend!

I took my wife out for date night and this place had a wonderful ambiance. The menu is selective and a little too fancy for our tastes. We opted for drinks and an appetizer. The chef's board was very good and not terribly expensive. The drinks were really good and overall we were pleased. This place is expensive and busy. The food really wasn't our type which is why we didn't opt to order dinner. Our server seemed a little annoyed by that because we had reservations. If you are willing to pay $30+/entree and $10 a cocktail, this place is one for you. We opted to eat dinner at another place in town instead but this is good for people who like fancy food, just not for us.

The hostess/greeter was wearing a hillbilly plaid workshirt more appropriate to a logging camp. The Bouliabaise contained undecooked vegetables, ovecooked shrimp, no phinal or saffron flavoring. The steak was tough and overdone. The dessert was some breaded concoction which tasted of freezerburn. Otherwise, our anniversary dinner at your so-called restaurant was terrific.

Maynards has adapted what used to be an old train station into a restaurant and market, and the space is really outstanding, with a large outside patio for dining (under heat lamps in winter). Freight trains passed several times, adding to the funky ambience.

The interior is dimly lit in a good way, with a cool bar and lots of banquets and booths. Easy to chat without feeling your neighbors are too close. The food was really good, especially the salads and appetizers and they served outstanding bread. My only disappointment, having ordered steak frites, was that the meat, though flavorful, was quite tough. But that's always a risk with steak. The fries were excellent.

Unhappy with open table. Initially I tried for 6:30 not available. I took 7pm. When I got to Maynard’s they said it was 8 pm. They were kind enough to find us a table. I now see that u list time as 6:30. I am feeling I don’t trust open table to reserve the right time. I must admit this is the first time I have had this problem . Unfortunately it was a special occasion so it was uncomfortable with guests along!

We dined last Friday evening to celebrate our marriage and were greeted by a very friendly champagne toast--that's awesome customer service and attention to detail!

Service was a little slow, but company was great so that was mostly forgiven. Meals took a very long time to come out (about 45 minutes to an hour), and management apologized with dessert on the house...again, we appreciated the effort there!

My meal (pork chop) was DELICIOUS and I had no complaints at all. My husband and guest's steaks were very tough and not very flavorful, which for the price, was pretty disappointing.

Overall, I rate this experience "middle of the road". My meal was great, but my guests weren't. Timing was super slow, but the restaurant did what they could to make up for it. Prices were a bit high for the quality of food received. Ambiance and history of the restaurant is great. Several cons, but several pros as well.

I do want to add a big "thank you" for the special champagne toast provided...that was very thoughtful and sweet, and made the experience special!! I also really do appreciate the efforts that management made to make up for the lag in timing, and I think I would try the restaurant again for a special occasion (it is a little to pricey for a regular date night for us).

Tasty duck dish often not found on American menus, friend had lovely lamb shanks. Poutine was rich but a nice break from the ordinary. Loved the patio train area, beautiful lighting, nice people.. Food was a bit slow out of the kitchen, but we weren't in a hurry, so fabulous happy time!

Best hamburger I've ever had, and the friends I was with all really enjoyed their entrees, too. Love the location with trains going through. Would have liked to have a few more creative options for appetizers. And the service was a slow and a little inattentive. But overall experience very positive.

We wanted a quick bite before going to the opera and chose Maynards for a change of pace. The close-by garage parking (over the bridge) was convenient. The atmosphere is both formal and fun in view of the railroad theme. There service was good. The celery bisque was delicious and so were our meals. I would return to Maynard's next time we find ourselves downtown.

Maynard's is consistently excellent. Four of us dined there and we all loved everything. We have always appreciated the very good cocktails, unusual wine list with numerous good choices by the bottle or glass, and the professional and knowledgable service. We love the Bistro Salad complete with a soft-cooked egg in a fried crust, such a marvelous addition to the fresh and crisp salad. One friend enjoyed the poutine, which he described as far more sophisticated than the usual version. The beet salad and the steak tartare were also a hit at our table. My pork chop entree was huge, really way too much food, but I was happy to take the second chop home. They were very accommodating to my request for vegetable in lieu of grains in cream. The lamb shank was also well received. My husband was not wowed by the Thyme Tagliatelle, but it was ok. Everyone else loved their entrees, including one friend who had the appetizer mussels as her main dish. High quality all around. Noisy inside, unfortunately. There was a band outside. And the trains passing by are always fun. We find Maynard's one of the best restaurants in Tucson.

Wonderful remake of old city commercial facilities, with great imagination and style. Excellent menu choices both full meal and apps, with a robust drink and wine selection. Our server was obviously well-equipped to do a superior job, and did so with much professionalism. We appreciate that very much in this day when waitstaff are often young and fairly uncaring. We chose a mushroom toast app which was beautifully prepared and served and contained a spectrum of different types sauteed to a lovely texture. One of us then had the moules, which were large and perfectly cooked, in a very delicate broth. The second choice was the lamb shank, again perfectly done, a large portion with the meat "falling off" the bone, in a flavorful sauce, with ample spicing (altho' I might have added some more herb...my personal preference for stronger flavors...not a critique.) Overall, we had a great experience and it led us to question why, over a number of years, this was our first visit to Maynard's...it won't be our last, for sure.

 (Philadelphia)·Dined on January 11, 2018

The setting was 1900's Dining Car. The music was too loud for my taste but I'm sure a younger crowd would enjoy it. We shared a mushroom on toast appetizers that was wonderful. My husband had the Chipotle Rubbed Pork Chop and he enjoyed it very much. I had the Piedmontese sirloin which was supposed to come with seasonal vegetables. It was served with some type of charred greens that simply tasted burned. The steak was very good and the red wine caramelized onions were perfect. The béarnaise sauce was very blah and I didn't use it for either the steak or the fries. The fries were good, crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.
We will go back and give it another try. It is handy if you are going to downtown for the theater. And it has an outdoor patio that would be nice in warmer weather.

NY Strip was dry and tough, fat wasn’t rendered out. Not eatable. Management took care of is and removed it from the check.

Otherwise, it was a fantastic experience. All the other food was cooked to perfection. Our server was fabulous. I think the one steak just got caught up in the weeds on a holiday night. I will be back to try them again.
