This is the third time I've reviewed this restaurant. I've had variable experiences and stayed away for a while. But last night, Oct 20, I returned and had an amazing meal. The restaurant looks better, too, with a new floor and removal of a wall since my last visit. The menu has improved. I ordered a $25 entree called a... More

This is not the typical Tex-Mex but do give it a try, It is really good. Very typical of the food you find in Mexico or Latin America. The service can be slow but it is worth it or just let the wait staff know you don't have much time. This is a nice place to meet someone for a... More

I have been here three times in the past 6 weeks - it's becoming one of the surefire restaurants for out-of-town visitors. Great food, attentive waitstaff (but not hovering), a bartender who knows his stuff. One time I was there, the chef came out & checked on everyone and I think actually served a couple of people (they were busy).... More

This is a “Modern Mexican” restaurant focusing on Latin American as well as Mexican cuisine --- a somewhat different, more upscale Mexican grill. Lunch menus feature two tacos (carne asada, carnitas, camaron, ancho, fish, etc) at prix fix $7.95 --- very good. The chicken fajitas dish is excellent. Service is OK albeit a bit slow. Ambiance is very nice, comfortable,... More

Maya takes us to the Mexican restaurant experience that doesn't have to mean heavy traditional low quality fare. Maya specializes in Mexican-based recipes with amazing flavors for entrees including salmon, ribs,Tilapia...pulled pork and more. Tacos, enchiladas and other traditional items are featured as well with fresh local ingredients. Fantastic authentic Tequila concoctions and stellar service. I'll be back!

There are a number of reviews that criticize Maya for having a smaller menu. For me, this is a positive aspect - as they focus on quality vs quantity. I would prefer they do a few items very well vs. a huge menu with only mediocre results. I opted for the Ceviche Trio, as I wanted a chance to try... More

Outstanding food! This is one of our favorites in the west end. Excellent service and food. Owner is the chef. She often visits the table to get feedback. Delicious entrees with extremely fresh food. Highly recommended.

Every time we go, we leave satisfied. Sometimes we sit at the bar and just get drinks and appetizers other times we request seating in the main dining area. The food and service always seem to be on point.

The food here was excellent and different than the run of the mill Mexican places. My only complaint is that I visited while traveling through Richmond and an unlikely to return.

We love "Maya", we go to Cabo san Lucas every year so we know good Mexican food when we eat it. I always get the fish tacos as they are that good, their margaritas are exceptional also.So That's what I ordered again this time and my husband ordered a cheese style dish.I have to add that I don't usually eat...
