It is pretty darn sad when a valet picks you out as a big Boma eater

We ate there for the first time this past Oct and it was out of bounds excellent! Service was the best we have ever had in WDW, the live music was awesome, the food was amazing! The menu is not what WDW or Allears has listed, go to the Maya Grill webpage for the real one or you can click on my Oct link in my signature for a full review and pics

DH loved it so much he put it on a must do list for all of our trips, yes it is the one place he will go out of his way for!

Even Boatwrights is a little easier, because you can enjoy the leisurely boat ride to DTD to catch a bus back to your resort. But for Maya Grill (or Shutters at CBR, or Boma/Jiko/Sanaa at AKL) your only option is a bus ride to a park to get on another bus back to your resort.
Gotcha - it isn't specific to CSR.

If looking for a current menu, I'd recommend looking at the restaurant web site (http://mayagrillrestaurant.com/). All the food service at CSR is contracted out rather than run by Disney directly, and the company's own web site seems to be more accurate and updated in a more timely fashion than WDW's official site or the unofficial planning sites.
Interesting - this might be the only WDW restaurant I can think of with its own web site. (The Landry's & Levy places have sites through the company, as do the Swolphin restaurants, but this one has its own domain and everything.)

Looking there, it seems that the official WDW site (the "old one", at least) does have the current menu. It has certainly evolved away from the steakhouse direction that they had moved in back in the mid-2000s.

This place is run by the San Angel Company, yes?

I ate there and like others was pleasantly surprised. EVERYTHING was very good--and I am a Hard Core Foodie.

I think so. And I can only think of one other on-property restaurant with its' own web site - Raglan Road. I'm not sure if any of the other third-party restaurants in DTD do or not because I've never had occasion to look. But RR, like the non-park Landry restaurants, only releases some of their capacity through the Disney booking system so they're another one I've had occasion to contact directly to reserve a table.

We use to regularly eat at the Maya until we adopted our 13yo (now 17...anyone want a free kid?)

Have always liked the food here. Several years ago they had this wonderful cream of mushroom soup that I wish they would bring back. It was a bowl full of heaven!

As for getting there, we sometimes drive there, sometimes take the bus from DTD. Or, if we are at a park, just take their bus and then on to DTD. You are going to end up there anyway, you might as well go.

Ask for a seat by the fountain. It's special.
