Maximo's Italian Grill
Deliciousness!The food is always outstanding! The service is always above average. The prices are a bit above average too. However, the half price drinks on Wednesdays will keep me coming back (on Wednesdays)! I highly recommend this place!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb Quality of PreparationIn all New Orleans, Maximo's Fire-roasted preparations are among the finest, both the seafood and the chicken and sausage. They serve one of the best Caesar salads in the city6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Food and DecorWe rate restaurants based on how anxious we are to go back. Our experience at Maximo's (our first) was outstanding, to the point that immediately went home and purchased another Living Social discount to use on our next visit. In fact, we'll be returning to Maximo's whether we have a discount or not.
The impression we were left with is, the food isn't "cooked," it's "crafted." The service and ambiance made us feel comfortable, welcome and appreciated.
Wholeheartedly recommended.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date NightHaving been a fan of the New Orleans dining scene for over 35 years, my husband and I have found yet another gem. We purchased a Living Social certificate and decided to try Maximo's. What a wonderful find!!! The food was oustanding, the service was above par, and the atmosphere in the restaurant was fabulous. My filet was cooked to perfection, and the asparagus side dish was the best I've ever eaten. My husband had the four cheese ravioli and enjoyed it just as much. We will definitely make this one of our regular stops when we are in the city.
As a side note, we sat at a table in plain view of the grill ~ loved the experience of watching the chefs prepare our meal and talking with them as they prepared our meal.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinner for my wifeMy wife and I are cocktail enthusiasts. We each had a Matrtineli. It was exceptional.
We each had a side pasta, I highly recommend th alfredo sauce.
My wifes scallops were "fired" and mine were in a glaze. I preferred hers and she mine.
The waitress comped my wife's dessert for her birthday. It was a very nice gesture, and I tipped accordingly. We had not been to Maximo's in over 11 years. It was great. We were lucky it was Memeorial Day; parking was easy in the Quarter.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFinallyGreat spot that has been well reviewed for years. Fantastic Italian food!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFound this reataurant on openFound this reataurant on open table. Great food great service and a great location in Nola !5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy ItalianI have been to Maximo's several times. Recently, my husband and I rediscovered it and I have probably been 3 times this past year. The food is consistently delicious. I had the ravioli special and it was rich but the red sauce was very light. This visit I brought an out of town friend, who is a picky eater. She had a hard time choosing what to eat because she had so many options! If I lived in the Quarter, this would be one of our regular nice places to eat.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentFabulous food,fabulous service. Kitchen view from bar seats a valuable plus!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly SurprisedWe ate at Maximos on Saturday 5/4/13. Even though we are locals and pass by the restaurant all the time, we've never dined there. We got a late reservation on Open Table and I'm glad we did! The duck ravioli was smokey & tasty and the duck salami was fantastic. The restaurant was packed so the initial service was a bit slow but that was to be expected during Jazz Fest. The atmosphere is energetic and we sat in the back of the restaurant which is open to the kitchen showcasing all of the chefs. We will definitely go back again as there are more items on the menu that we want to try.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in the neighborhood...We've been to Maximo's twice and the food is fantastic. The staff and management team always deliver on providing a memorable customer experience. Definitely a top of our list for fine dining in the French Quarter area!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMet 5 other girlfriends hereMet 5 other girlfriends here for a get-together. Food was wonderful! We had a great table by the front door with picture window. Everything was perfect!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took a group of olderWe took a group of older people to celebrate a birthday, the hostess was quick to recognize they could not navigate the stairs. Very quickly they prepared a table downstairs for us without being asked. I had the duck ravioli which was excellent. Several others at our table had the ravioli specials, they enjoyed it as well. If you want something other than seafood this is a good choice.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMhad a great meal, servicehad a great meal, service was good and recommendations by service staff was very good4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the best diningThis was one of the best dining experiences I have had in New Orleans in months.

It can be a great romantic or business experience.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a very good experienceIt was a very good experience overall. Portions are not enormous, but all that was served was delicious. The staff was very busy due to the crowd, but once our waiter got to us, he was very polite and attentive.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT ITALIAN IN FRENCH QUARTERWhen you walk in it reminds you of an old dive restaurant. it's definitely URBAN. The wait staff was very good. The menu was for sure authentic Italian. The special 4 cheese ravioli was superb.

The food was excellent as was the service, and the atmosphere was very warm.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTremendously innovativeThe food is innovative and consistent. One of the better restaurants in the city. Ambiance is not particularly romantic but the decor is interesting. The dining room is a little on the loud side. The food more than makes up for any other short comings..3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect experience every timePerfect experience every time I go there. Off the beaten path so there's no "touristy" atmosphere. Always a pleasure to dine there.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local place, with great food!We heard this was a local favorite and we loved it!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!As a local, I tend to go to my favorite New Orleans restaurants over and over again instead of trying some place new (I know I'm probably missing out on some other great restaurants!). Maximo's never disappoints. I highly recommend the daily ravioli special. They're like tiny pasta pillows!!2/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe mussel appetizer is oneThe mussel appetizer is one of the best we have eaten.quality of food is always wonderful. It is great to look at the kitchen grill. Those chefs are excellent.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
