  • "Superb experience. Wonderful food. Friendly front desk and wait staff. Far more than I would have expected in Fargo."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I came to Fargo from New York City on a business trip and had found Maxwells on Open Table. The service was extremely good. The decor and art work are interesting but unobtrusive. The meal was superb. I started with prosciutto wrapped scallops topped with small pieces of lobster in a succulent mild, red curry. My second course was a medium rare elk in a pepper, cherry sauce. And I managed to spare a tiny bit of room to have the cappucino creme brulee. The chef is from North Dakota, and the restaurant is managed by a terribly charming Mexican, Ramon Sosa, originally from Cozumel who has a degree in tourism management. The ladies room was stylish with nice floral accents and some lovely French hand cream. Lots of nice details everywhere."

  • "The hubby and I went for our 3 wedding anniversary. I made reservations on Open Table and asked to be seated in the bar because we like a more energetic atmosphere. The hostess was very polite and had a table reserved for us in the bar! Wait staff was excellent. Very knowledgeable and had great suggestions and pairings for us. Since it was a special occasion we were in no hurry and they did not rush us. We ordered one appetizer at a time with a bottle of wine before moving on to the main course. The staff was also great with the wine! The food met our Standards! Bacon wrapped scallops, Seared Ahi Tuna, Elk Steak and Lamb Chops all cooked perfect, and the Latte Creme Brule with an espresso cookie, a great finish!! We will be back soon!"

  • "Treated our sister and her husband here as the final dinner out together before flying back to New York the following day. We were seated right away and our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Our steaks were tender, succulent and delicious. Would recommend this place to others for a group function and as a nice couple date or in our case a double date!"

  • "The food is amazing! Try the Amish chicken, it is simply delicious (juicy, tender, well seasoned); the caramelized sweet potatoes are so good it's just like dessert :-). LOVE this restaurant!"

  • "Had the Blackened Walleye, not what you would receive in the south but remember, you are in North Dakota. The service was wonderful. Found the noise coming from the bar area distracting but it sounded like they were having fun."

  • "A really great place in Fargo. Our appetizers and entrees were presented well and prepared perfectly. The bread pudding is REALLY good! A casual atmosphere with high-end value. The service we received from Ken was professional, attentive & friendly. Their wine list was not up-to-date and after 3 tries we were able to enjoy a wine of the same vintage as shown on the listing."

  • "Maxwells is one of my favorite restaurants in Fargo. The food is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. They have a great wine list, and the bar management is wonderful. Their brunch is also fantastic! They have plenty of salads, warm entrees, and in addition to the mandatory omelette station, they feature made to order crepes."

  • "From the time we walked in the door, until the time we walked out, we were treated like regulars. The service was impeccable. We never felt rushed; timing between appetizer, salad and main course was perfect. Our server was attentive, and our drinks never went empty. The wine list is extensive for a city the size of Fargo, and a wine spectator award winner to boot! Now on to the food! For an appetizer we had the lump meat crab cakes with tomato and avocado. Crab cakes are one of our favs, so every time we eat at a new place it’s the first thing we eat. I can honestly say these were the best crab cakes we have ever tasted. I had the grilled beef rib-eye with gorgonzola cheese. First of all I am a steak nut and usually not a fan o"

  • "Had a superb Easter Bruch with great omelets and excellent lab at the carving table. Service was excellent. A bit more noisy, but the tables are arranged to assure a private dining experience. Definitely a repeater for me"

  • "We had jumbo lump crab cakes, scallops wrapped in bacon & topped w/ lobster & sauce. The Fillet Mignon was cooked to perfection & the potatoes were creamy & delicious. My fiancé chose the Surf & Turf, loved it! My guests enjoyed the stuffed chicken breast & fettuccine. Both were impressed & had a great time. It was my birthday so our table was located where it was quiet & private. Our server was attentive, friendly, & prompt. The wine list is unstoppable. Even our 18-month-old boy was entertained! A few friends @ the next table were there for the first time & after I stopped by to say hello, they had me try their dish to show me how wonderful it was! All in all, a fantastic night full of family, friends, great food, & fantastic service."

Would definitely recommend this place! (And they were exceptionally nice to my 83-year old mother-in-law who was a a little apprehensive about the place!)"

  • "What a wonderful surprise this restaurant turned out to be! From the outside it just looks like a stripmall but once you get inside it is an entirely different experience.A very upscale, trendy look. Soni took great care of us and her knowledge of the menu and wine recommendations were right on. The duck special was particularly tasty and the steak was superb. We were there for the marathon and I would highly reccomend this restaurant to anyone in the area. The manager even shook our hands and thanked us on the way out, a nice touch!"

  • "Great Place to eat, but the venting of the hood's for the exhaust could be much better. Kind of stink's at times!"
    Dined on 9/21/2010
  • "Awkward with no host to greet at the door on a utterly vacant night. Location in "West Fargo" could be an issue for this otherwise quality restaurant. Probably will choose Sarello's in Moorhead next time for better FM dining experience. (wish they were on openable)"
