We keep trying Maya and at last agree that this restaurant merits its reputation. Our server was helpful but not intrusive, our drinks and wines delicious, and our dinners fine in every detail.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here, with excellent service and loved the old brick walls and lighting to add a romantic atmosphere to our meal. Excellent wine selections that were unfamiliar to us. The beef is perfectly prepared and food choices show a bit of flare. We would return if we found ourselves in Charlottesville again.

Really enjoyed our meal and the service was superb. Would highly recommend Maya even in a town with a million restaurants.

Restaurant Week (RW) in Charlottesville generally brings out the best in area restaurants and this was the case at Maya where we ate upstairs.The wait staff was on their game and our server Josephine was patient, professional and infinitely polite, knowing not to hover or to intrude on our party of four. Two members of our party took advantage of... More

I asked the front desk at the Boar's Head Inn for a recommendation for family casual as I was in town for the weekend with my family including my wife, and two daughters age 12 & 14. He recommended Maya. We were able to get reservations at the last minute. We got a seat in a both at the bar.... More

We made the mistake of visiting this restaurant in the pouring rain. The entrance door facing the street was locked. Bartenders, Waitresses and other staff watched us for almost five minutes as we unsuccessfully tried to enter the restaurant in the pouring rain. No one informed us of the alternate entrance. The "instructions on the door" were so faint that... More

We ate at this restaurant 2 months ago (on a Sunday night) so I’ve forgotten the specifics which is a shame because we had a really nice time but I won’t be able to give a lot of details. But overall we had a very nice, pleasant time and I would highly recommend this restaurant. We had 3 of their... More

My most recent visit was with my family, eight to eighty-two years old. Some might not bring an eight year old here but that's your call It's a small menu with lots of sides. There were many specials. I think we ordered half the menu at our table. Not one complaint. I had cornmeal dipped catfish. Five out of five.... More

We were passing through Charlottesville and were starving. My friend had been to Maya a few years earlier, and it was walking distance from the hotel. They have a warm welcoming bar where we chose to have a drink as well as our dinner. They have an extensive list of cocktails and just as tasty as their description. We were... More

Amazing southern food. The chicken with ham gravy is delicious and the mac and cheese and corn bread were heavenly.
