As its name implies, Brasserie Max & Julie in Houston, TX is a classic brasserie featuring an enormous selection of wines along with dishes designed to pair perfectly with them. Offering both brunch and main menus, choices include hors d'oeuvres, grilled specialties, regional dishes, fish and daily specials.
Because Brasserie Max & Julie is a specialty establishment, nothing is run of the mill and daily special plates might include house made parmentier or a Provencal styled seafood. The restaurant also has a fine cheese selection and even the desserts at Brasserie Max & Julie speak of the French influences. Choose from luxurious floating islands or classic tart tatin. You can also enjoy gourmet coffees to savor a truly authentic experience.
Will miss this wonderful go to Brasserie for traditional French cuisine.
Not sure what the problem was with service on this Friday night. We have been here several times before and brought some friends to enjoy a new spot. Was very disappointed in the inattention of the server. Food was very good, thank goodness, so our friends were not entirely disappointed. Will only be back on a weekday night in the future.
Wife ordered the artichoke. The produce sticker was still on. We were the only customers in at the time. And it was her bday dinner.
Seats not very comfortable, but all the rest was great
Always authentic French dining with a terrific wine list. Cozy & elegant at the same time. Be sure to try the crepes & champagne for weekend brunch!
Food was great, but service was slow and unattentive.
Our dinner was very disappointing. The restaurant ran out of the first 3 wines I ordered, and did not have two of the entrees on the menu. One out of the dozen oysters was bad, inedible and our waiter offered to discount the dish, but then forgot. My snapper special was bland. The beef bourguignon was decent, but not great. Perhaps the best dish we had was the escargots.
We really like max and Julie's for brunch so we decided to try it for dinner and we didn't enjoy it as much. The fish I had was bland with a medley of vegetables that we either over or under cooked. I never know what I was biting into... I will definitely be back for brunch but maybe not for dinner...
Been to Max and Julie several time before, but this visit was disappointing. Menu was very limited and did not seem to have many real French items. My wife had the trout , which frankly looked like it could have come from a cafeteria plate. My steak poivre was good, but not great .Atmosphere was still good , but overall not a real special experience. I think they need to work on their menu options with something that adds a little life.
I can't tell you how much we enjoy Max & Julie's. The food is always great and not overpriced. The staff is always so friendly. We plan to make this our go to restaurant.
