    Food was great. We had a wonderful time. A little loud for our taste. Espresso didn't have any crema and was weak, but it was comped which wasn't necessary although thoughtful. Port was served chilled; and I prefer at room temperature so I can get the full effect of the nose and the nuances in flavor. Maybe that is the way it is served in Arizona. I am from Oregon. The food was creative, presented beautifully. Will go again if we are ever back in Tuscon.

    Maynard’s is among our Tucson favorites for a special date due to ambience, quality and variety of the food. We enjoyed our unexpected seating in the intimate upstairs dining room. Most of the food was excellent. I am disappointed in the vegan offerings, though, which remain dull. The chef’s special vegan plate consisted of a pile of sautéed greens with mushrooms and some chili sauce on the side, for $24. There was no starch and no protein. This dish, while tasty, was a warm vegetable side dish, not a meal, and my date went home hungry on her birthday. Please ask a vegan for ideas or consult a few recipes. Many ingredients on the menu are already suitable including pasta, grains, potatoes, mais, beans, etc….Remember Jacque’s magic beans at the old Coronet? We would love to come back for the patio, main dining room, or upstairs dining room, but probably not until there’s a decent vegan option.

    Food was excellent. Wonderful aromas as we entered the restaurant. Our hanger steak presentation was exceptional. Our experience failed because it was too expensive. $38. for the hanger steak. Could get that in Newport Beach, but in Tucson??? Thinking $24. would have been about right. We have lived in the area for a year; we try different restaurants nearly every week , over 40 so far. Maynard’ s was the most expensive. Can’t afford to return.

    They pride themselves on inventive, farm to table menu's and they do NOT disappoint. Hard to pick out a favorite as everything we had was interesting, new, and executed at Michelin star level. Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable about the menu even though it changes so much daily, and helpful with suggestions. Likely the best restaurant for foodies in Tucson

    My wife’s entree came out with corn grits which was not shown on the menu. She is highly allergic to corn. The server promptly took the plate back to be replated and was very apologetic about the matter. He also arranged for a free dessert to make up for the mistake. Graciously and quickly handled

    The food and drinks were a little pricey in contrast to the ambiance. The food was decent but not great. Had a hard time getting a table even though I had a reservation - they tried to force us outside even though there were 7 tables available inside and remained not full throughout our stay. Overall I wouldn’t likely go back. Better value elsewhere.

    Creative, locally grown food presented some unique opportunities to enjoy varied, shared dishes. Nearly too many appetizers to try them all but with a real desire to keep tasting. Excellent local wines to complement the meal. Great find downtown that brings you back over and again.

    Our meal was fabulous! I wanted the Halibut however it was prepared with a mole sauce. I’m not a fan and asked our server if there were any options. She said she would speak to the chef. The chef ultimately prepared a delicious (and visually stunning) Halibut dish for me. Very accommodating…and delicious!

    A great price for the tasting menu, which was six delicious courses! I love what they're doing there now. Beautiful patio dining if you can handle the heat, and the interior is historic and lovely. Train goes by every 15 or so minutes, but it's not obnoxious - in fact, it's pleasant. Highly recommend.

    I’ve enjoyed the creative spirit of Maynard’s since it’s inception. Even in these trying times, with high inflation, labor headaches, and supply chain issues, Maynard’s stays fresh and interesting with its scaled back menu. A simple chicken dish is made enticing with a beet mole. The foie gras May be gone, but an oyster mushroom appetizer shines in its place. Team that with a relaxed, attentive wait staff, and you have the ingredients for a lovely dinner outing
