My friend and I found this place on trip advisor while traveling. It did not disappoint! Excellent service. Steven gave us wonderful recommendations to narrow down a difficult to choose from menu. The selection isn't large, however the choices were incredible. If you like martinis try the femme fatal or the pomegranate martini. We had pimento cheese fritters that were... More

Maya offers a range of southern specialities in a warm and nurturing atmosphere. Their food offerings are offered in the traditional way. Everything tastes great and the service is the very best. The bar offers a variety of interesting drinks prepared by a master bartender. Always a great place to take that very special someone.

Maya Restaurant gave me a spot at the bar and treated me very well. The manager was patient and kind and I appreciate him listening to my frustrations and making... More

Food was good and a moderate price but the service was not intuitive or proactive. Atmosphere is good and location in Midtown great. If you have kids they just tell you to order off the sides menu, which works but not ideal.

Monday night downstairs we had Trout and lamb loin. Both dishes well prepared and presented well. The wine list was excellent all though limited. Service was exceptional both at the table and at the bar before dinner. We always go to Maya each time in C'Ville.

We loved our dinner at Maya. Maya is located right on Main Street, just down the street from the UVA campus. It has a beautiful, rustic interior. Everything we ordered was delicious. Portions were large. We started with the pimento cheese fritters, the gnocchi, and the spinach salad. For dinner we split the trout which was one of the best... More

Great place for dinner. The fish was perfect, the service was very good and had the most amazing dessert - Honey and sea salt cheesecake. A place to come back!
