Staff was very accommodating. Originally had reservations to sit outside. It rained just as we were about to be seated. Staff found our group a place to sit, even better than our original seating arrangement. It made for a memorable and unforgettable evening. Our server was great, fun, lively, happy, energetic, helpful, and very nice. Food was wonderful espicially the carrot cake, the frosting was out of this world! I had the filet mignon. The meat was tender and moist. Small portion but very tasty. The cream spinach was a little salty for me. Prices were modestly high and the whole expience was worth every penny.
The views from the second floor beautiful. On one side there is the train, Catalina mts, and U of A and the other side is a great view of Hotel Congress with the neon lights and street life. The wine cabinet with its dark wood stain and dim lighting, hard wood floors, and beautiful white trimmed windows added to the cozy ambiance and the wine cabinet served as great back drop for group photos. Loved it!
We really enjoyed Maynards Kitchen! The food was excellent and unusual and well prepared. My poached eggs were perfect! We even watched a cook go out to the garden outside our window and pick fresh produce for someone's meal! I loved that! The waiter was nice, but didn't really connect with us very well. He seemed kind of mechanical, but polite.
I will definitely be going back for the lobster Benedict!
Maynard’s is set in Tucson’s train station. It has a classic look to it. The tables are covered in paper and they give you crayons to draw to pass the time. Nice selection of craft cocktails. I had the cooler with gin and cucumbers. Very refreshing. The bread was outstanding with flavored butter. My daughter and I split the charcuterie plate which had two kinds of sausage and cheese. I had the pork chop, which was perhaps the best pork chop I have ever had. Highly recommend it
We dine out often, usually close to where we live up in the Foothills, but this place is worth the 40 minute drive downtown! We love Maynards, and tonight as in the past, we had great food and service! My wife loved the trout, and I really enjoyed the hanger steak with fries. Friends had the delicious mussels, and a very tasty (but a little tough tonight) roasted chicken.
The service was terrific, from generously poured cocktails, to help with a very nice bottle of red wine, to food recommendations!
Maynards is at the pinnacle of the dining scene in Tucson!
First time, and, it did not disappoint. Our waiter was fabulous, very knowledgeable and friendly. Knew the menu intimately. Will return.
Wonderful dinner! I gave it a four instead of five because the market salad, while tasty and fresh, was skimpy on the dressing—needed a bit more to really taste the flavors. The whole trout was divine—perfectly done and seasoned. The creme brûlée, while good, was very shallow in the dish compared to other restaurants. I look forward to another visit!
We've been here many times but this meal was a little disappointing. I ordered the steak tartare and there is a mustard sauce served with the meat, except not last night. I ordered my meal as pepper-free and the waiter said that the sauce contained pepper so the chef/cook simply left it off. This chef just won the Iron Chef Tucson award so I would think that he could have created some/any kind of sauce to accompany steak tartare to complete my plate. The other diners were very happy with the food and service!
I’ve heard Maynard’s sponsorship of Arizona Public Radio, which compelled me to want to support them. When I checked out their website and menu, it looked perfect for my husband’s birthday dinner - and it was.
Everything - the service, the food, portions, the atmosphere ... everything was wonderful. We will be back, and will recommend Maynard’s to anyone wanting a great dining experience.
We had seafood starters and fish for our main, all were very good. Couldn’t fault the food or the service and my martini was as advertised “perfect”. The only downside was the noise. The restaurant wasn’t very busy at the time we were there but there were a couple groups who seemed to want to share their conversations with the whole restaurant. Too noisy and we were relieved when they left, quite easy to have a conversation at our own table then.
The Sonoran Mushroom Toast was delicious! The whole grilled trout was not good. It came with tomato fregola that tasted like spaghetti-o’s. Maybe my expectations were just too high for this place.
Our food and drinks were delicious!
Outstanding meal and service.
The pork was undercooked and had to send it back 2 times .
Service was outstanding, the waitress was very informative and helpful with our selections. The food was phenomenal and the portions were adequate. The table for two could have been a little bigger but we may do. They had jazz after word on the patio and it was an overall pleasant evening. Will be back and will highly recommend
Party of 5 for brunch on Sunday. Too hot to sit outside but had a nice view of their garden. Attentive wait staff and the food was very good with one exception. One order was eggs Benedict. The “poached eggs” were cooked too long and the yolks were completely hard. The omelets were great.
Overall very nice brunch. Recommend!
Very “rustic” restaurant which I love. The service was outstanding and the prices were fair. Overall it was a great night for us and we enjoyed our experience to the fullest. Maynard’s kitchen will always be a favorite on my list.
Quick service, a good menu, the food was excellent. We had a very enjoyable meal in a comfortable setting.
The trout wasn’t wonderful and was somewhat disappointing. The accompanying bits were delicious. Desert want good either and was sent back. It lacked good flavor and maybe wasn’t fresh.
Great overall, will dine here again
Enjoyed the ambience, food was very good but the service was lacking. Waiter disappeared for long periods of time. We had planned to order apps but he was so late getting back to us after serving our drinks, we ended up just ordering entrees.
Appetizers were very good, service was outstanding. Fish special was very well liked. Chicken dinner was just average. hangar steak was very disappointing. Tough for supposed to be medium and the sauce was like A-1 sauce with an onion seasoning. We had two desserts one was very good and the other was very dry. Will go back for sure just to try the different menu items.
The food is very good. Service was professional and attentive. Nice evening overall for our anniversary and a leisurely pace. No rushing or undue interruptions.
We each had a cocktail. Mine was a little strong but I'm a light weight. My wife's sangria was really refreshing. Wife and I split the delicious mushroom toast, a super rich appetizer that probably should carry a warning for the arterially challenged. Luckily, I am not.
I had the pan roasted Scottish salmon special which was excellent. It came with a carmelized carrot puree and some stir fried squash. My wife had the summer spaghet, which came with smoked eggplant that somewhat overpowered the dish. Otherwise, it was yummy, too.
We had fantastic decaf with the prickly pear white chocolate cake dessert. Again, very rich.
Overall, Maynards Kitchen is a pretty good option for a special dinner for a couple or a small group. Avoid bringing the kids. They wouldn't appreciate it.
Great place and food
I was shocked electrically having my elbow on the metal vent and touching the spike end of the lantern. My girlfriend tried it and it did the same to her.
It had been quite a while since I had been to Maynard's. We had oysters, that were very fresh. Split a beet salad, which was not what we had expected, but delicious. And then had the fish, which happened to be Arctic Char, served over veggies. Everything was great. Will have to return sooner than later.
Always delicious food at this delightful spot.
I found this restaurant on Open Table and thought we would give it a try. We ate outside which was in an area near the railroad tracks. The food was really good and the flavors were amazing. We will definitely be going back.
Maynards is always outstanding. Our favorite special restaurant in all of Tucson. Try the summer spaghetti with sausage. One of the best dishes I have ever had and I worked (and ate) in NYC before moving to Tucson 2 years ago. Just the best!
We've been there many times and keep coming back. Food and ambiance are wonderful. It's a real Tucson gem.
Went for Sunday Brunch. Beautiful garden, local grown food. Excellent coffee and the omelet/potatoes and fruit was delicious and perfectly made. Large outside dining area and descent amount of inside seating (for a downtown establishment) in a clean dining room. Huge wine selection! Right next to the under ground garage and only cost $2.00 on the weekend. We will be returning!
We've stayed away from Maynards because the last few experiences were terrible. But since it's been about a year since we've been there, we thought we would try it again. So happy we took the chance. The hostess was so sweet to show us to the perfect table by the window and the perfect server, Kendra. Our friends wee equally pleased with everything. We started off with steak tartare and beet salads. The men had the pork chop and the ladies had the grouper special. All the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. Kendra opened a pinot noir and immediately said the cork was a little off and since my girlfriend is a wine distributor, she concurred. Kendra brought us another one which was perfect. We've already made another reservation for family coming into town in a few weeks.
We always enjoy Maynards, our go to place great meal.
In our opinion, one of Tucson's top restaurants. Love the atmosphere next to the train station. Their own vegetable and herb garden is impressive. Very efficient and friendly staff. The dinner was excellent!
they always do a fantastic job with the food. Would have loved a refill on the coffee but the waiter disappeared
Excellent as always
Eddie the best bartender in Tucson
Fish is outstanding
Too noisy inside too warm outside. NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoyed a lovely Mother's Day Brunch. I loved the Ahi Tuna while my husband enjoyed the peppery, sweet corn soup. He really enjoyed the Milanese chicken while I had the eggs benedict as a main course. Then desserts - loved the Black Forest Torte while I polished off the berry - rhubarb cake. Overall, a lovely meal was had by both of us.
Everyone I dealt with was terrific. Our reservation date & party size changed several times. Staff was exceptional in confirming/reconfirming the both. It was an especially busy weekend due to the university graduation, but everyone at Maynards made it look easy.
Thank you Maynards.
Ed the bartender is phenomenal. Best Manhattan ever.
Great food, great patio, great jazz band and trains!
