The food is not only exquisitely scrumptious, it's beautifully presented. This has become a secret 5 star restaurant. They are always looking to up the ante; the next best way to present a dish you thought you knew and loved, but believe me, I have...More

Definitely a fan of Maya! I've been several times, normally dinner and drinks, but also for Tuesday lunch special! I've tried a lot, but learned overtime that the trout was always my favorite - consistently cooked to perfection and seasoned perfectly, love the saltiness from...More

On a recent trip to Charlottesville, we had a terrific meal. It's a cozy bar setting with a friendly helpful staff who helped me negotiate the menu for GF. Delicious ribs fell off the bones. Lovely dessert selection. I will definitely return.

we just love maya, which for a decade has served up some of the best southern food available in virginia. the local trout is fantastic, but it’s the sides that somehow make everything irresistible. friendly staff!

We planned Easter Brunch at Maya based on excellent reviews and were glad we did! The atmosphere was relaxed - comfortable table, good music and really nice to see the servers dancing as they worked - says a lot about the culture at the restaurant!

My husband loved his trout and my son loved his ribs, however, it took forever to be acknowledged once we sat down. And then forever to get a drink. Our appetizer came before our drinks. I would come back to give this restaurant a second...More

Visited on a weekend vacation. We had a reservation, but were asked to wait at the bar for about 5 minutes before being seated at a booth near the bar. We'd heard the ribs were good so we both ordered them, with different sides. The...More
