Fun, quiet (except for the occasional train) delicious. Beautiful interior. Wonderful mix of flavors across the menu. Chef thinks outside the box and pulls it off. I believe it is a must for visitors and locals.

We had a very negative experience. Our table on the patio was nice, and we enjoyed our cocktails, but after we received our cocktails the service was terrible. After being there for an hour and a quarter, we still had no food, and no one even came to check on us or apologize for the delay. Finally my husband went to find out what was going on and someone told him, "I'll check into it ." A few minutes later someone in a suit and tie (the manager?) came by with a very defensive attitude and said, "Well, we've had two large parties come in and we're doing the best we can." No apology whatsoever. No offer of new drinks, more bread, some snacks - nothing. When we finally got our food my husband's veal chop was cold. In the end they comped our drinks, but we will not be going back. When a restaurant is having an off night, management should be smart enough to know that an apology and an offer of extra drinks or snacks or something is what's called for, not hostility. We like Tucson, visit often, and might have recommended this place to many people! But definitely not after this experience.

The veal chop was over cooked and not well priced considering the size of this portion. Despite the fact that I told our server that I experienced the same issue several weeks before, the preparation was not satisfactory . The fish special was well prepared and nicely presented. The cheese cake is excellent.
Service was good. The manager came over and said he would take care of my problem on the check. He comped us one desert ($8) to make up for an improperly prepared ($39) entree

We had nice family dinner for six. Service was very good. The dining room is attractive and we enjoyed watching the trains. Salads were excellent as were the oysters salads bouillabaise and French fries. Steak had too much sauce and the trout was just okay. Still Maynard’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson.

Great spot we have been coming here for years. We were downtown the week before and had dinner at the Cup across the street one of the other great restaurants in this group. I believe you can't go wrong with this group. Stop and have a hand crafted cocktail or two before dinner, very nice bar staff. Tables in the main dinning area nice and comfy try to get the last table with the antique bench, its like your own little world. The culinary staff does a rely good job on being innovating and are spot on with preparation . Wait staff do a great job at service and attention.

Thanks to all

Excellent food and experience! Previous reviews stated that there was a wait and inattentive staff, but we did not have this issue at all on a Saturday night with a 7 pm reservation. We sat upstairs, were waited on quickly and received all our orders at a reasonable time after ordering. Our main waiter answered questions and all other support staff was spot on. I would definitely recommend this to others from out of town.

We had planned to visit this restaurant prior to our stay in Tucson, and we were not disappointed. It is by the train tracks - that adds to the atmosphere! - and the food was just superb. Highly recommended for anyone stopping by Tucson for a day or two.

This was one of the places mentioned in the concert booklet. It is a shot drive from the Tucson Music Hall. You can walk from the Realito or Foxx Theaters. It has a market, where you can order sandwiches and a drink. You can sit at the small bar or take a table outside. The kitchen, or dinning room has a totally different menu. There is something on the menu for vegetarians, I couldn't tell you how many things. The food was very good. We will be going back again.

Another excellent evening, with good wine and an eclectic menu very well done. Our party had a number of very tasteful dishes including the mushroom toast, which was succulent and full of great textures, seared scallops and PEI mussels, done in a very fragrant broth/sauce and cooked to perfection. Other dishes experienced included the fresh trout and an interesting melange of tagliatelle, sausage and vegetables in a light creamy preparation. We did indulge in two deserts and would recommend one try all of Maynard's offerings on that menu. All in all, another wonderful evening at a unique eatery.

Very inattentive service. Before even ordering, took nearly 15 minutes to get a glass of wine. Same thing happened during dinner. Many at table ordered the BOUILLABAISSE. It was OK. Fairly bland due to lack of seasoning, and the "scallops" were perfect disks. Obviously not scallops . Others had the tagliatelle and again, bland and under seasoned. But the real problem was the service. Tough to go back because of that.
