    We come to Max's at least once each month when we are in south Florida. Consistently above average food. New this visit a shrimp risotto that my wife said was excellent. WE shared a Caesar salad like always. I had the half-chicken with crispy Brussel sprouts (really really good). Our waiter Maggie is a regular and is the best. She was training a new waiter and our interaction with both could not have been better. The young lady at the hostess stand had a miscue with us when after putting in to my Open Table reservation that we wished to sit out on the patio (a must for people & upscale car watching and covered dining). She attempted to seat us inside and I corrected her she told me that "I did not get to choose if I sat outside". Max's you really should have the outdoor patio be an option over a request but moreover train your indoor staff better social skills. Dave & Pam

    Although my husbands meatloaf was good my chicken pasta was really distasteful. Even my husband who likes everything said it was t good. Didn't finish or take home. I have had it before but this just didn't seem to blend. Too much curly pasta , too much bitter balsamic, and chicken tasted like it was cooked with clam sauce. Entree took very long time to arrive. I had tomato soup but no longer with a garlic crostini on top . Did have goat cheese. Basil tomato Soup at yard house across street so much better. Could it be max's has new chef. Very disappointed . Ate at valagios next night and it was excellent and servers were too. Maybe max's is still good for lunch.

    Max's was disappointing last time out for brunch. I don't expect restaurant staff to be my best friends, but I like warmth. For example, I always ask for waitstaff names. The hostess and waitress were cold and somewhat aloof. Pardon me!

    My friends and I meet at Max's several times a year and my girlfriend and I often dine there on our "day out". Service is always great; we always enjoy the filet mignon dinner while our friends try other items on the menu. We enjoy sitting outside as we are all from the north and it is a pleasant change from the cold up there. We will continue to enjoy it in the future as well.

    I ordered the pork chop that was VERY salty. I was especially disappointed with the two sides that came with it. Hard to describe what they were but both members of our party agreed they did not like either. The salad was delicious, however, was delicious - warm goat cheese.

    This restaurant really has their act together. We were seated at a round table for 6 but it was in a high traffic area so we requested another table. They seated us in a booth but it was really too small for the 6 of us so we asked to be moved again. They set up another round table just for us and then comped our first round of drinks and all the desserts. They know how to keep their clientele . I will definitely return. Not only for the way they treated us but for the quality of the food they serve

    Reservations are always honored. The service was excellent and 3 out of the 4 meals came out perfect. One chicken dish was dry, which is unusual for Max's. Waiter was great. Even invited us back for our free dessert after the show we were attending as it was not overly crowded. Nice gesture. e

    My wife and I both greatly enjoyed the snapper on the main menu. However, I was disappointed in the appetizers. The chicken wings seemed overcooked. The octopus was delicious though I felt that the portion size was a little too small. None the less, we will return since we have been term customer and we usually enjoy everything! Also, worthy of mention, Our server was Diana and was very attentive, knowledgable and courteous.

    The food is always reliably good here & they have a big menu of small & big plates. The outdoor dining patio is vibrant & fun. The big HOWEVER here is that the service was & is mostly always SLOW & erratic. Drinks took forever. Other tables around us ordered after us but got their drinks & food before us. Two of us ordered small pour wines; two of us ordered larger pours but we all got same size. Got billed for two small, two large. Not a big $$ diff so we didn't dispute the bill but it's just part of the pattern. We like this place & it's in a great location. Just wish they could get the service act together.

    We've eaten at Max's several times and been pleased each time. We especially enjoy their early bird, which gives you an appetizer and dessert with the entree for the price of the entree only. Portions are large and you have the choice of most entrees on the menu; there are few limitations. You also receive a free bottle of wine with every two orders during the early bird.

    Very disappointed. Over priced but more importantly the food was less than spectacular. The Special Flatbread Turkey Avocado club had absolutely no flavor. I would have liked to wash it down with an unsweetened tea, but they do not serve unsweetened tea they did have a passion fruit tea but I could not get a taste of it because my wife and sister-in-law sent theirs back because it was awful. They carry Grey Poupon mustard only. Do your kids eat Grey Poupon mustard? Mine do not. Overall a great disappointment for a sunday lunch.

    Pam and I rank Max's in our Top5 south Florida restaurants. Always honor Open Table and be sure to request to sit on outdoor patio. People watching at Mizner is so much fun and watching high end cars stopping for Valet is enjoyable. Wine selection is good and Cuba Libra's well prepared. Southwestern Cobb Salad for one and Chicken Caesar for the other.
