Diner Reviews
  • "Went with a party of six. Given a table with no overhead light; very hard to read menu. There was a room with plenty of light, but it was closed off to customers. The assistant manager opened the curtain to give us more light, but the staff closed the curtain when they took their breaks in that room. The table was very near a back door which slammed shut every time the staff or customers used it, which was frequent. The wait staff was very attentive, but we waited over 30 minutes for our food after ordering. The food was very good. I would go back, but not with a party larger than four and make sure to be seated in the main room."

  • "Food is consistent but some of the changes make us sad, such as no longer bringing hot tea to pour over ice, for fresh ice tea. A good place for a small group to go."

  • "I went to Max’s for the second time in four days. No matter what you eat at Max’s you will be satisfied with quality and quantity of food, the service, and the reasonable prices. I enjoyed the pan seared salmon entrée and the luscious Niagara Falls Cake, a must for any chocoholic."

  • "My second trip to the Bay Area in five weeks, afforded me the opportunity to have dinner at Max’s during their asparagus and artichoke festival. I enjoyed one of their specials, chicken with broiled asparagus and artichokes. And one always leaves room for one of Max’s great desserts! "

  • "I was staying near SFO to catch an early flight. I considered going into the city, but decided to stay close. Max's menu looked appealing. Unfortunately, the menu on Open Table did not match the menu I received. The ambiance was somewhat dinerish, but the food was good. An included side was creamed spinach. The best I have ever had. The waitress was outstanding."

  • "We had a wonderful Mother's day dinner here Sunday. Although there were walk-ins waiting, we were seated immediately at our reservation time. Even though there was a full house, the service was fast and there was no delay in getting our drinks/appetizers/entrees/dessert. Our waitress Enjoli was a gem, thanks so much for making my day special. This restaurant must get a lot of walk in business from the nearby hotels - even though we live 5 minutes away, we return here time after time for their wonderful food and service, and have never been disappointed. So glad to have you in the neighborhood! "

  • "The food was good. I enjoyed my meal. I had the pan seared salmon that came with a drizzle of dijon sauce and it was wonderful. This restaurant is a nice change of scenery if you're tired of going to the same old diners in town. I guess, if I were to describe it by comparing it to other restaurants, the food is better than Applebee's, Chili's, or restaurant's like that. They also had a piano player/singer. It's been a while since I've seen that in a restaurant."

  • "Well I wanted to take my daughters to dinner Friday night after being seated at a table with two chairs their were three of is and we awkwardly stood while they got a chair we should have left. Took 20min to have a waiter greet us. Another 20 for drinks and then we order another 25 later well maybe the food would have won me over if they brought all my food out. The waitress comes back when we are done and says whoops I forgot this part of your meal do you want it separate. Well no I already ate what was give. I have never had the urge to walk out of a restauraunts at many times then I did that night. Come on you see two kids you don't ignore. Felt very rude and unwelcoming. Not a fun experience. No dessert order since it was never offered "

  • "Consistently tasty huge portions. Asparagus and artichoke special menu was outstanding. Desserts are always a tasty treat one is plenty for two or more. Location near airport makes it perfect for before or after a flight."

  • "I've been a patron of Max's for as long as the restaurant has been around. First in SF, then the move to the Peninsula. The food is always good and plentiful. However, the service (not all staff, just some) can be REALLY bad. We are always seated promptly, but then just kinda wait and wait for our server to come by. Again, some staff are on top of it, others, not so much. It pains me to leave a tip, but I do it anyway. If they could just speed up the service by the waiters, it would be great. The food though is ALWAYS awesome. Always hot, and tasty and always leave full. "

  • "Max's is always a great place to eat, but Thursday nights are especially great because they serve delicious prime rib dinners! They even include some of their tasty cookies for dessert. All of this combined with the live music makes for a terrific night out!"

  • "We've been patrons of Max's in Burlingame for years now and still enjoy their food, the "opera", and value. There's free parking adjacent to the restaurant and it is located right off I-101 which make it very convenient for us! Love the crispy salmon and your sandwiches, and of course, the warm, baked rolls that are brought over at the start!"

  • "Max's serves great food, but the desserts are amazing! We enjoyed the cheesecake and carrot cake tonight along with some fresh strawberries... Yum!"

  • "We enjoy Rita who plays on the piano. We look forward to her singing every Thursday night. This is our family night out but I can see this would be a great place to bring a date, too. This place has excellent food (Grandmas Chicken), staff, drink (Old-fashioned), dessert (miss the Bread Pudding) & entertainment. Bring a date, client, or your family. This place stands for customer service. Other restaurants please take note."

  • "I have been a fan of this location for many years.....but no longer. The service was terribly slow and it was not busy. The lunch was just ok and the dessert tasted like it had been in a freezer or refrigerator and absorbed other flavors. This lunch was nothing like the flavors of Max's from the past. I ordered a hot turkey sandwich which I have always ordered and god not receive fresh turkey - it was turkey lunch meat warned up."

  • "We have been to Max's in Burlingame many times - but we found that the quality of food has deteriorated. I ordered the Texas Beef (brisket) and was so disappointed. Where I remembered it to be juicy - this time it was so dry - it was hard to swallow. Another member ordered the mushroom pasta and complained that it was so dry. She gave me a taste and she was right - it was very dry. There were six people in my party - the rest all ordered different sandwiches. They said it was alright - but nothing to write home about. I do so remember how we enjoyed coming to Max's - but I'm afraid not this time."

  • "I thnk this is the frst time I've written a bad review on Open Table. Most places have been great. It may be we got there right when they opened on a Sunday. We had to ask for coffee refills, the toast was burnt on one piece and the second piece hardly toasted. It could be just an off morning."

  • "I don't typically complain about restaurants or the food. This will be a rare exception. I have been to Max's many times and the food is usually above average. This night however it was far below. I order the chicken matzo ball soup and it was luke warm. I ordered a corn beef sandwich on an onion roll and was shocked that the roll was very stale and the corn beef was fatty. I didn't send it back because I was with a group an the timing would have been off if I had. So all in all it was not a good experience. I have heard that the management has changed and there were clues, like the removal of all the letters from locals that used to hang in the wall. I hope that new management does not let the quality suffer."
