The waitstaff was polite and well prepared. The atmosphere was cute. The food was (mostly) delicious. My ribs were fattier that I prefer which is my only complaint. Make reservations. Prices range from $19-27 for dinner entrees.

We had worked a long day and decided to walk from our hotel to get some dinner. The hotel staff recommended we eat here. We arrived at Maya (after missing it the first time) somewhere around 7:30 PM on a Saturday night. It was packed! We didn't have a reservation, but the staff worked hard to find us a table... More

Maya is a charming restaurant located in the heart of Charlottesville's historic area. The menu is cleverly done with a selection of expertly prepared entrees and a list of sides from which you can choose two. I love their outdoor patio in the summer and their Sunday brunch is delicious. The wait staff is always competent and attentive.

We dine here rather frequently - always had a pleasant experience. The duck is especially nice. Only wish they would add more specials or change their menu once in a while - this doesn't impact the infrequent visitor, but would entice us to visit more often.

The restaurant is a short walk from campus and has an interesting spin on Southern food. The trout was delicately prepared and really delicious, and I thought that the cheddar grits were the perfect accompaniment. My son devoured the chili (a special) and the mac and cheese, and my husband enjoyed the chicken. The wait staff was very nice!

We had dinner at Maya's outdoor seating area for a special occasion on a Friday night. There were several large groups seated on the patio. The patio is near the street and just across the street are the train tracks. Adding to the noise, the plastic cover on the patio seems to keep all the noise in. It's lively, the... More

Not so great although Tripadvisor rates highly. Food was luke warm. Fried oyster appetizer was cremated. Beet salad looked good but tasted old. Waitress was sour too. A $60 waste of money.

Based upon very positive reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked reservations for Saturday evening. The restaurant appeared to be less than 50% full at 7 pm. The hostess and the server were very welcoming. We ordered Pulled Pork Wontons and Fried Green tomatoes as appetizers. Neither were particularly tasty, but one of the tomatoes was a small thin slice, the other... More

When we travel we try to go to special restaurants... Many we find via tripadvisor. Maya sounded interesting so we tried it. The meal started well with good service and wonderful drinks. I wish I could rave about our appetizers and main dishes but they were only OK. To say that the meal was forgettable is the best I can... More
