I made a reservation for an important business dinner and was not disappointed. The service was excellent and wine and meal were superb. I will definitely use Maynards for future meetings with clients and business partners.

We were a party of 6 and everyone loved dinner at Maynards! We tend to dine out a lot and it is hard to find places of this caliber. It is clearly one of the very best restaurants in Tucson. Service here is friendly and very capable and the atmosphere is great too!
It is very worth the drive downtown from the Foothills!

Thaler forgot it was a birthday dinner. The oysters were excellent but expensive, even for oysters. The rest of the food was average and not worth the Super expensive prices. A disappointment. Will not go back.

Excellent traditional menu with a FLAIR, Maynards is a top drawer Tucson downtown destination. Indoor/outdoor dining right next to the Amtrack station makes for a fun and entertaining ambiance. Service was terrific and with a smile. The bar scene at cocktail hour makes for a noisy cacophony---a bit off putting. By 7pm the relaxed calm returns and the ambiance is perfect for a chicago like bistro. Parking is an issue on busy nights. The lima bean mushroom side order ranks up there with the best we've ever had.

 (New York Area)·Dined on November 25, 2017

Truly disappointing. Yes, the decor and the atmosphere are very nice, but this restaurant has an inexplicable good reputation.

The service was adequate, but two out of the four dishes served at our table were truly bad, both in their concept and execution, the stuffed trout and the bouiliabase

At this price completely unacceptable. Visiting from out of town, been to Tucson many times over the years, had the old impression of Tucson being a dad food town, but found out this trip there are some newer , excellent alternatives for mid priced and higher end dining. There's absolutely no excuse for what we experienced at Maynards,

We have always loved Maynard’s and perhaps it was just an off night. Filet arrived cold and purple in the center when asked for medium, side dish potatoes were raw, lamb shank which is typically prepared hours ahead of time was lukewarm. Good bread and burgers though.

I love Maynard’s, do not get me wrong. We were a party of 5 . 2 had great meals and 3 did not. Two ordered the same steak meal, ordered exactly the same way, medium rare. Both steaks were med well and tough. The Steak frites on my order had clearly been frozen and came from the same package and were fried together in one big lump. The Lima beans and mushrooms Side was dried out and tasteless. The other meal was a mushroom puff pastry which was the size of a small saucer and not worth the $16 price tag. The other two meals were very good ; duck and pork chops. The atmosphere, service and ambience were, as always, excellent.

Food was subpar. Deserts were terrible. Prepared 2 days before. The creme brûlée tasted nothing like a creme brûlée. Striploin steak was tough. Old cow. Nice place. The food was below average. Supposedly this is one of the best places to eat in Tucson. Doesn’t say much for Tucson’s restaurant scene if this is the case.

If you do not customers in the restaurant then do not take reservations - we had a late afternoon (1:15 pm) reservation and all of the staff could not have been more interested at the end of our meal even pushing the check on us and then trying to take our plates before we were done to get us out of the restaurant. To bad we had good experiences before here but probably will be a while before we go back

Very bad service that night, particularly the waitress. Forgot to bring us bread, and no one filled our water until after about five minutes. There was no welcome, have you been here before, just wanted to take our order and be done with us. I hope this was a unique experience because the service in the past has always been excellent as we have been coming to this establishment for years.

We love Maynard’s! Delicious food, attentive service, there’s just something special about being at the train station. If it isn’t already a special occasion, it becomes one.

Our tiny complaints are: 1) there should not be a charge for at least the first plate of artisan bread. 2) a stronger vegetarian presence on the menu would be appreciated.

I was a bit disappointed since a friend of mine and I met here for a special occasion for happy hour. The patio had been reserved for a wedding party and sitting in Old buildings has a tendency to make me ill due to mold concentrations in the air. It became very uncomfortable and we ended up going to the market for dessert and coffee to sit outside. Last time I stopped here for happy hour the Burger was Far larger. It seemed to shrink. I ordered the happy hour salad for my friend, it was getting late... not really impressed. She did like the soft boiled egg but otherwise the salad was nothing to write home about. Next time I think I'll just stick to the market and sit outside. Otherwise great ambiance inside very nice seating in the formal kitchen area.

This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere perfect for special occasions, date nights, or just a nice family dinner. It is located in downtown Tucson's old train depot , which gives the restaurant a lot of character and creates a very interesting, charming setting. The waitstaff is attentive and knowledgeable, the food is prepared incredibly well, and the kitchen is very accommodating to special dietary requests. The price point is on the high side; however, the food and overall experience provided are worth the cost. I would highly recommend sitting outside under the lights and not skipping dessert!
