5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We went on a Tuesday for the $12 menu. I had the New York strip steak with a blue cheese-bacon sauce, collard greens, and beets with candied ginger. Everything was amazingly delicious and the portions quite generous considering the low price.

We went based off of the TripAdvisor recommendations - and everything was perfect. Our hosts and servers were super accomodating, the food was fantastic (best pork tenderloin & pecan pie I have had in some time). I only wish I had more time to enjoy the outside dining area and their extensive cocktail menu. This place is great, and we... More

I had been to Maya on several occasions in years past, but this was the first time in awhile and it didn't disappoint. I had the crusted catfish and it was divine. It was piping hot, flaky, and perfectly cooked. Every entree comes with two sides. I had the Brussels sprouts and whipped potatoes, both yummy. One of my fellow... More

I was surprised in a positive way by this restaurant. The specials were very original and really well prepared. I had a full dinner in the bar, including appetizers, main course and desert and everything was very good. Their barman is super nice and excellent recommending what to try from the menu depending on your taste. Went to other nice... More

We were looking for a healthy place to eat after being on the road for a week. We got more than we could have ever imagined! Perfection is the best word and it applies to everything we had. The fried oyster appetizer was just right. I had a vegetable plate of 5 of their side dishes. SO DELICIOUS!!! Beets with... More

Literally every bite of every part of our meal was outstanding. Can't wait to go back. Our waiter, Stephen, was also one of the best, NO, THE BEST server I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

We were in town with family and I asked a friend who lives here for a recommendation. He hit the nail on the head. Our dinner reinforced his and trip advisor's recommendations. Absolutely superb and reasonably priced. I had the tenderloin and my significant other had the steak. Both entrees hit it out of the park. The sides were to... More

Great old fashioned southern food with an updated edge. Cocktails were unique. Don't skip traditional favorites like their collard greens or ham gravy. They were both fantastic!

On a business trip I got into Charlottesville around 8:30 PM and found this restaurant via searching on trip advisor. A great find! Restaurant is small (although if it wasn't storming that nighthawk they do have a large patio for al fresco dining), and a little bit loud at first until some bar patrons left (but I was solo and...
