Diner Reviews
  • "Our waiter was very nice and went out of his way to accommodate us. However, the hostesses were very rude, which is surprising because they are the 1st impression."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Our food came out pretty fast and it was the way we ordered it, oh and it actually came out hot! The breakfast sandwich was awesome but huge. So if your starving get that if not then most def it's great to share! The grits are amazing and that all I have to say about that! Overall it was a good dining experience!"

  • "Maxs is one of our favorite places in West Village! Everything I've ever had on the menu was fantastic. My favorites are the sliders and the fried chicken - - make sure you ask for the Chipotle honey!!!!!! It puts the chicken totally over the edge from great to unbelievable! Definitely make a reservation on OpenTable if you plan on going on a weekend night, though!"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Love this place, however the chicken wing were weirdly big this time I'm use to the organic chicken wings which are ALOT smaller but over all still lunch this place.. Don't forget mimosa at brunch"

  • "Brought a friend who was visiting from out of state and they absolutely loved it. They didn't want the meal to end."

  • "Was there on a Thursday night and sat outside. Very nice evening. The noise from traffic on Lemmon & McKinney is a little distracting. Sat near the "Wine Wars" group, who appeared to be having fun. Our waiter was conducting the wine tasting with the larger group, but remained pretty attentive. We enjoyed some nice wine and some small plates. Very enjoyable. I would recommend Max's for their reasonably priced selection of good food and it's relaxed ambience."

  • "Wonderful selection of wine AND beers. Food portions are huge so you can split and great quality. Friendly staff -"

  • "Had Sunday brunch, and I loved it. The food was great, the drinks were great, our waiter was helpful and informative, and the atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. The only thing I didn't like was the waiting area, it was busy and no where to really wait without being in the way"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "I've gone to Max several times. I was so unhappy with the service and the food was horrible! The chicken use to be so good, but not anymore. I felt so bad because I've bragged about this place to a visitor and we were so disappointed. Do you not marinate your chicken anymore?"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Great time as always. The online reservation process was really easy and we got seated right away."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "My family and I went to Max's Wine Dive to celebrate my mom's 50th birthday. We reserved a table for 10, but we had a couple unexpectedly show up. We politely asked the waiter, Denton, to pull up an extra chair, but he refused and referred us to the hostess (sorry her name escapes me). The hostess also refused to pull up an extra chair and even refused to allow the couple to sit at a table near us, claiming it was out of server rotation. My husband and I ended up sitting at the bar to allow the other couple to sit with my mom. After our request both the waiter and the hostess continued to have a very unpleasant attitude with us.They didn't even wish my mom a Happy Birthday! Okay food, but terrible Eric for groups."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was ok and after waiting for like 5 minutes for our server the service was great. If you really like wine then this is the place for you"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food was great - we ordered the chicken fried steak and waffles and the fried egg sandwich. Large portions, tasted great - although I felt the chicken fried had a bit too much excess breading. Biggest complaint was the drink prices - probably because Max's is a wine bar, but they are not competitive with other Uptown brunch locations with as good or better food...also, the "bottle deal" on mimosas I'm not sure is a deal."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Had a wonderful experience at Max's Wine Dive on this past Saturday n me and my girlfriends came out and we enjoyed our meals and our wine. The staff was beyond helpful and friendly and the overall vibe in the place was lively. I will definitely revisit this place...."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I had wanted to check out Max's Wine Dive for quite some time. I made a reservation because I was expecting it to be crazy busy and made my way there for Sunday brunch. The ambiance is nice. It's great for friends, couples, or solo. My waitress was very nice and attentive. There were absolutely no issues with the service. I ordered the chicken and waffles. To be honest, that's what I came for and I was not disappointed. The chicken was seasoned well and the waffle was delicious. I will definitely be back...by myself or with friends."

  • "Took my parents - who can appreciate good wine/food but don't always like a stuffy restaurant feel."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We were there for my girlfriend's birthday, I had made the reservations in advance, and yet somehow we still got a bad table. The food was fantastic. Wine prices were fair (for Uptown). If you're a small party, go for the food and brunch, absolutely. Our issue was that we were a party of 8, and Max's really isn't set up for large groups. We were in the busiest part of the restaurant, yet somehow our server kept completely forgetting about us. For what we paid for champagne brunch, I expected much better."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We enjoyed the mimosas and thought that all the menu items were wonderful!! We had a large party of 11 to celebrate 2 birthdays. We had 2 waiters to start, but lost the 1 waiter immediately though we were not told and the remaining wait person was VERY slow. We were there for 2 1/2 hours and our 2 birthdays were not acknowledged at all."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Food was overrated...order was late so they gave us a complimentary appetizer of pulled pork peppers which were cold,the Jalapeno Buttermilk Chicken was not seasoned...Collard Greens were okay..best thing I had was the TonyRomo turnover....Dined here 02/21/2014"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We love wine but we are not fans of stuffy wine bars. We had heard about Max's and wanted to try it out. It definitely has a more laid back bar feel, which we really liked. The wine prices and happy hour deals were great too. I am vegetarian and was disappointed in the lack of food choices available to me. I ended up with the macaroni and cheese (Max-n-Cheese), which I didn't think was great compared to mac & cheese at other places (not very flavorful, lumpy sauce). My boyfriend had the fried chicken sliders & thought they were great. We would go back for drinks if we were in the area, but not for a meal. The atmosphere is really cool and the patio area looked fun."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "This was our 2nd visit for brunch at Max's. My food was a little cold this visit, but I didn't complain because my server was simply Amazing! I will continue to frequent Max's Wine Dive!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Our reservation was slightly delayed but management took excellent care of us to make up for the delay. The food was amazing and the portions were hearty. The waitor was great and the entire staff was friendly. Definitly would go back again. Overall a very awesome experience."

  • "If you go here you will love it. Ask for Garrett and josh and you'll get the vest service."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The reservation process was cool. I like the confirmation phone call. Not really big on the 8 being the largest party but I'm ok with it and understand. Our waiter started out as Garrett and he was GREAT. We got switched to another table and the waiter was...??? Yup, don't know his name. It seemed like the food took FOREVER! However, the chicken and greens came out hot. The group enjoyed the food and had a great time."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "OK the only reason I gave this 3 stars was because of the hostess. My girlfriend and I went here for brunch back to back in 2 days. And both of these days we had reservations for the patio and we confirmed the patio when we walked in the door and both times she said "sure that is no problem" and both times within 5 minutes they sat us inside. I am so confused on if she was just stupid or did not get that we wanted the patio. But anyways the food was great and the service was much better the second time than the first but it was not so bad that I would give a bad rating over it. I definitely recommend this place for brunch but make sure you make yourself clear on the seating arrangements."

  • "I sound like a teenager with that title lol but I can't help it. This place is great. And it being packed all the time just proves it. Brunch is my favorite time to go."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The bottled wine list is pretty extensive and the food was on point. The drunken bread was a great start, especially if you're a huge "pile cheese on everything" kind of person. The fried chicken was tasty, but the chicken fried steak with jalapeno batter was surprisingly the winner of the night. Cool little spot uptown that gives a little upscale kick to homestyle cooking."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food was great. If your open to trying different dishes then this is definately a good place to dine at. Max's also has a great wine a great wine selection for wine drinkers. I will definately be back."

  • "Great food, great service (Denton is the best! He always gives us complimentary wine samples), and a very relaxed atmosphere. The servers are knowledgeable about the wine and the place is always packed. Will definitely be coming back."

  • "I must admit, I don't drink wine, so I felt a little out of place here because it definitely focuses on wine here; hence the name, right ? If you are into wine, this place has everything and anything you could possibly want. The food was my focus and it did not disappoint. One of the best meals I've ever had. I ordered from their seasonal menu and had a roasted and flash fried pork shank that melted right off the bone. It was paired with leeks and potatoes in a Dijon mustard sauce that was not only a perfect compliment to the pork, but had a phenomenal flavor. The staff was friendly and super knowledgeable about both the wine and the food. I will definitely fine here again."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Had a great evening at Max's. The waiter was attentive, but not overly so, and he was extremely knowledgeable about the wine. He made suggestions based on the types of wine that we mentioned we enjoyed and it was the best bottle I've had in a long, long time. The 'drunken bread' appetizer was oozing with flavor -- a cross between a soufflé and casserole. It was my favor treat of the night! The manager stopped by to talk and was enthusiastic and friendly. We were leaving right as the place was getting full. We had a reservation, which I would encourage after 7:00 pm :)"

  • "I should have stuck to my regular fare: chicken and waffles or red velvet pancakes. the Hang Over Pot Pie just was not a fit for my taste buds. The description made it sound better than it tasted. It was sort of bland and I did not like the textures. I definitely will return to Max's, but will order something else."
