We celebrated a UVa graduation here for dinner. It was delicious, food was hot and the atmosphere casual. Wait staff excellent. Would highly recommend for special event or just an evening out!

We were in Charlottesville for a few weeks and looking for options for everyone. There is a lot of southern food around here and finding vegetarian friendly options within all that can be tough, but not at Maya. I went with four side dishes rather...More

I’ve been going to Maya for 7 years. It’s in this great old building. Has a beautiful dining room and often incredible food. I’ve seriously teared up eating brussels sprouts that will simply never be one-upped. It’s a great place to belly up to the...More

Everyone in our 8 person party cleaned their plates! Bruussel sprouts, crab cakes and greens were the favorites. Service fast and attentive.

At least at Maya! We’ve enjoyed Maya multiple times and the food is wonderful every time. I had the cucumber and tomato gazpacho which was incredible. The pimento cheese fritters are a standard on the menu and are out of this world every time. We...More

Had a nice meal here with my 2 teenagers. The food was good - I'd call it "upscale southern fare". The service was really poor. Slow waitress that hardly checked on us, waited a long time to order and then to receive my wine and...More

Met friends at Maya to have the Tuesday specials. Meals are slightly smaller, but, half the regular price. This is a beautiful restaurant in downtown Charlottesville. Service was excellent. Food was very good. Prices on the Tuesday specials are around $12 + dessert + drinks.
