    The fish dinner was excellent. However, the pork shoulder meal was almost inedible because of an over abundance of salt.

    Our server was delightful. We were celebrating a wedding of 8 total people. All of the local menu items were explained with care. The service was so timely we never waited too long for each course. We basically had one of each protein dinners and one was better than the next. The mushroom ice cream was an actual dream ending to our night. It made our reception easy and wonderful.

    A fine dining experience does not get any better than Maynard’s. The historic location, the passing trains, the beautiful building, the very fine service, the excellent food, the wonderful City of Tucson, they all add up to the very best of American dining culture. This is a Five Gold Star restaurant! We will return again and again and again. Thank You for a wonderful evening!

    We went to Maynard’s for New Year’s Eve. So, the noise level was probably higher than usual. Had a very good meal. Very creative menu, well executed. Service was top notch. Seeing the trains go by was fun. We will definitely return.

    Our second time here, both times with a tasting menu with wine pairing. We're still dreaming about the wild board ravioli; every dish was great. The minor criticism I would leave is that both times we'd have liked a little more frequent explanations for why the wines were chosen. Otherwise, service is wonderful and friendly, and the location next to the train station makes for a little extra ambience.

    Maynards has always been one of our favorites. For Christmas eve they offered a 6 course tasting menu. All 6 course were very good. We were disappointed in the Wild Boar ravioli as the pasta was far to thick and chewy. But the flavor was outstanding. I highly recommend for special occasions.

    The train depot location is very nice. They have an upstairs dining room which is a terrible place to dine compared to the main dining area. Not being regulars they wanted to seat us there but moved us to the main dining area after we vocalized our disappointed and plans to leave. Many open tables there so assume as mentioned they keep these for local diners. Food was ok. A lot of ruffles and flourishes in the menu description for what we felt was an average tasting appetizer, main and dessert offerings. Well over priced for what received. Won’t bother going there again.

    I love this place and will always come back. I was disappointed that our server gave us the bottle of wine that was 60.00 instead of 32.00 and after she poured it, we noticed it was the wrong one. We told her and she still had us pay full price for us. I was a server for years and if the server makes the mistake, then the bill should be adjusted.
