    Food was fantastic! We went to celebrate our five year anniversary, and everyone was so kind and welcoming! My partner had the pork chop, I had the short ribs, and they were both excellent. The focaccia was perfect, a little sweet with the butter, but also salty. The staff was wonderful and attentive. I always appreciate when they don't rush our dishes and give us time to eat and enjoy our meal. Our waitress nailed it! We highly recommend for any special occasion.

    We are card carrying fans of Maynards, and have been there several times. It was a special dinner, meeting our son's girlfriend for the first time and we wanted to impress! It's a great room, and we love trains. We live in Paris, France, and have a residence here. But we felt that Maynard's had lost a step. When my wife asked for some bread she was told, "no bread." To a French person that is shocking. Our waitress suggested the focaccia, which we ordered. Which was fine but that aint bread in our book. The wine list I found...odd. Hugely overpriced which is OK but c'mon, offer some more inexpensive options. I ordered a bottle of the Mexican chardonnay, tasted it. No bueno. My wife tasted it. No bueno. So we sent it back. And to replace it we have to upgrade to a $78 bottle of Sonoma Chardonnay. It was excellent, or was it just...really good. It was a huge relief after the Mexican chardonnay, which was priced at something like $60. Not that were wine snobs living in France, but you can get fantastic bottles almost anywhere for 35-60€. on the Maynard's wine list last night there was just no room to order anything decent at a reasonable price. Move up from that $78 bottle of Chardonnay and you're over a hundred dollars? Really? And we found the portions smallish. I had the salmon with fingerling potatoes, and I think I found two or there little squiggles of potato. So...

    Great Birthday celebration. Our waitress, Ale, was wonderful - very knowledgeable about wines & menu and made us feel very much at home. Two of us had short ribs - tender, flavorful & a large portion. Another had pork chop & loved it. Lobster confit appetizer intrigued everybody so we ordered 1 order as an appetizer. I had it as a my entree along with mac & cheese & combined the two. Great way to prepare lobster since confit method resulted in very tender lobster. Definitely a diet breaker but worth it. Churros w/whipped cream for dessert. Perfect end to a great meal.

    The food was excellent. Apparently it was one of the final nights for the winter menu. The beef and the lamb stew were outstanding. Dessert and cocktails were first rate. Our server, Rachel, was good. Sadly, we waited an inordinate amount of time before being served. It’s a nice spot and a good alternative to other places Tucson has to offer. Recommend.

    Salmon was salty but otherwise good. Short ribs tender but not much taste. Roasted squash salad was quite poor. Two small slices of squash that never saw an oven and a cup of very soggy, wilted lettuce. One of our party said the Irish lamb stew was good.
    MaynardsResponded on April 9, 2024
    Hello TrisB! Thank you for your feedback on some of our dishes. I am very sorry your experience was not what you deserved. I believe the Owner may have even talked to you on your way out and brought his concerns to me. Some of those items are some house favorites, but they were clearly prepared incorrectly. I appreciate you bringing your concerns so that I can work with my team to make sure this doesn't happen in the future. Hope to see you again soon for another meal. Thank you, Nick Creamer- Executive Chef and General Manager.

    Very good experience. Seated promptly. Server attentive but never offered wine list, if there is one. A little noisy but not intrusive. Lobster pot apply was excellent-we shared it as recommended by previous raters- perfect for 2. Salmon was very tasty and perfectly cooked. Lamb stew was very good-lots of meat. Overall-a really good experience.

    Excellent food! Kind and friendly staff! We were here for a Birthday party. When I called ahead to make arrangements for the birthday girl, the hostesses were not only accommodating, they had champagne and a charcuterie board waiting for us, but also excited for our celebration, we were greeted with huge smiles from all the staff, and gave great menu recommendations! You can bring in your own desert without a fee as well! Yummy dishes, great ambience and our waitress was very attentive. I loved the decor and vibe, what a treat! Thank you Maynard’s for making my sister’s Birthday a really special occasion!

    This was our first visit to Maynard's and we loved it. We were seated alongside the lovely garden and found the environment to be delightful. We were greeted immediately after being seated and had very attentive service throughout the evening. We loved being treated to a "courtesy hors d'oeurve" at the start of the evening and we ordered the fillet mignon, salmon and hamburgini dinners. The meals arrived in a very timely order and were all three were delicious. We finished the evening with the tres leches cake and it was a perfect finish to a wonderful evening at Maynards. They now go on our list of Tucson's Most Favored Restaurants and we look forward to our next visit.

    The building itself is quirky, essentially part of the train station and the space was “long” so it reminded me of being on a train. The only thing that stopped me rating a 5 was the vegetarian options. Limited and just OK. The meat & fish were great & the service was friendly and professional. The drinks were probably the highlight, so full credit to the bar team. Very well done & the PB&J Boulevardier was stand out.

    Delightful evening at Maynard’s. We all enjoyed the focaccia bread and Mac & cheese shared by the table. We each had the side salad - very fresh and delicious. My husband and I shared the pork chop entree - cooked perfectly. Our table mates had the salmon and filet mignon - also cooked perfectly. We ended with the Tres Leches and port. Our service was great and we had a fun time. Highly recommend you spend an evening at Maynard’s.

We ordered the focaccia and my wife had the pilot salad. The bread was delicious. My wife tried their salmon preparation and was pleased. I had the roasted veggie salad and thought it was among the best salads I've ever had, thanks to a uniquely good dressing. We shall return

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The menu is VERY small, but everything we had was fresh and delicious. Love the fact that it's in an old historic train depot.
