Southern Inspiration at its Best

This Southern inspired restaurant is perfect representation of cuisine from the SouthEast. Love the grits. They take reservations which works out well, as many groups came in looking for dinner. Every course was delicious.

Maya which is located on Main in the central and trendy part of Charlottesville is the best restaurant in Charlottesville. Having been to Charlottesville on dozens of occasions, I write this with confidence. The strip steak is cooked beautifully. Moreover, one might not expect an inland-small city such as Charlottesville to have good fish, but Maya does. The trout is... More

Uniquely upscale and still southern influenced or is it upscale influenced southern. Either way definitely delicious, ample, and impressive regardless of the purpose of the meal- date or work.

The bartender at our hotel recommended Maya and we were very pleased. Very attractive patio, with big fans. Had some very yummy cocktails after asking our server about them. I had the cornmeal crusted catfish, which was really excellent! Good, friendly service, too. Definitely returning!

Eight of us, visiting from out of town, went to Maya Restaurant on a Monday night. Many restaurants were closed on Monday night, summertime and college is not in session. We got arrived early and they accommodated us immediately. The menu is not extensive but a nice variety. There were several unlisted specials. Southern flavors and cooking. Those that had... More

I don't have anything bad to say, but I don't have anything good to say either. If you want to try it, go on a Tuesday for their $14/person special. I was unimpressed enough to want to give it a 2/5 star, but there wasn't anything wrong really, except that it just wasn't that great. I'm surprised to see how... More

We had the prix fixe menu here after UVa's graduation. All three of us ordered the salmon and it was fantastic! Our table was inside but they have a nice outside eating area also. My only complaint was the fact that our server failed to bring our second drink order until we were ready to go. We had waited 15... More

My husband and I just had dinner at Maya. It's a lovely setting and the food is delicious. Our server Mike was attentive and gracious. Be sure to visit and ask to sit on the patio. The BBQ ribs are tender and delicious and the soft shell crab special was quite good. We will visit this restaurant again.
