We have been to Cafe Maxx on other occasions and the food and service is always great. I had the lamb chops over a mint risotto that were fabulous. My wife had the steak tartar and loved it. Our waiter was very attentive. We didn’t feel as if the noise level in the restaurant was overly excessive like you find in other restaurants. Overall great experience and we will go again.
My birthday was complete with dinner at Cafe Maxx! This restaurant never disappoints!
Excellent Thanksgiving Dinner
The family really enjoyed the menu choices
Very good selection
Perfect as always! Thank you Darrel!
Awesome. I come to FLORIDA every year and always go here
Came here for my Father’s birthday. Everything was perfect... service, drinks, food, etc. So glad to see them doing so well!
Hadn’t been there for years. Going back next week!
Everything was excellent. I had the scallops but wanted veggies instead of risotto. It was magnificent!
We had to wait at the bar a few minutes for our table to be set up. The bartender made the "perfect kir royale" for us. Not too sweet. Chef Oliver was there, food was perfect and service was friendly and attentive, the right mix. It was a busy evening with large parties, but food and service didn't miss a step.
We have eaten at Cafe Maxx many times. However, if this past visit had been our first visit I wouldn't return. I had requested a booth for 5 people. Someone called and told me 5 people wouldn't fit in a booth so we booked a table. Actually, 5 of us could have fit in a booth. The first table was in the back of the front room and there was a very large noisy party going on so we went to a table in the back. The back room has NO ambience whatsoever, the lighting is poor and the table was cramped. My son's back was rubbing up against a woman who was at another table behind ours. The service was mediocre. The food was good, but when you're lacking great service and a nice booth or table and are spending a good amount of money you expect far more!
Consistently excellent dining with refined atmosphere and diligent but friendly service. Probably the best upscale restaurant in Broward County!
Anniversary dinner! Had outstanding service from Jane, our waitress, delicious food and ambiance
Cafe Maxx is always delicious. That is ehy we return!
A delicious meal and great service. We had the shrimp scampi and grilled snapper. Both were wonderful.
Great service and menu!
Always a delicious and great evening at Cafe Maxx!
We chose this place to accommodate multiple eating styles because their clearly stated they have vegan options. Which is a lie. When we asked the server about the vegan options she was completely frazzled and unsure. She brought back a more seasoned server whom stated they have a “scratch kitchen” so most things could be made without dairy. Great asked for grits (which no one makes scratch because it would take at least 20mins), multigrain/wheat toast, fruit and roasted potatoes. She said “no problem, I’ll talk to the chef. Came back and said we have no vegan bread for toast and all of the other ritmes with the exception of fruit have butter which she forgot about. Now in a truly scratch kitchen you could just eliminate the butter. She forgot to put the fruit in and they started the order for the other party at our table before confirming we would even stay there due to know options. I opted to just have coffee black. Also all the fruit was not ripe or sweeten due to it being completely out of season. After 2 mimosas, coffee and fruit and a toast with one thin slice of salmon the check was $50. This was a pretty terrible experience. If you’re working in a restaurant in the year 2019 it is pretty mandatory to know the difference between vegan and vegetarian.
Went with a group of friends for the first time food and service was great. Located in a great area in Pompano
AFTER 30YEARS OF DINNING AT MAXX —- WE ONLY ASKED THAT ALL STAY THE SAME——- INSTEAD THEY GET BETTER EVERY TIME!!!! ALWAYS A LEGENDARY EXPERIENCE—- THANK YOU DARRYL AND OLIVER AND SON!!!
Wonderful evening great food, service and the crème brûlée was to die for!
The food is good but this restaurant is overpriced for the ambience and the location.
Consistently excellent dining experience with attentive service
Everything is always awesome and Especially having Sabrina as your waitress
Food was ok for brunch. The grilled cheese was extremely sweet from the chutney.
The special omelet of steak had too many mushrooms.
Will give it a try for dinner.
Service was very good and very attentive.
The food at Cafe Maxx never disappoints. I had beef carpaccio. YUM! Then chicken piccata. YUM YUM. And the Key Lime bar for dessert. YUM YUM YUM. I could eat there every night
My wife and I had an exceptional meal at cafe Maxx. The food was incredible and the service was excellent. We had the duck and the lamb. Then the flower less chocolate cake. They accommodate our gluten free diet perfectly. One of the best hidden gems in south Florida.
Cafe Maxx is always a favorite and this time we decided to try the special Crave Menu celebrating Ft Lauderdale & Pompano Restaurants. The menu offers a nice selection of a starter, entree, & dessert for $35, and Crave continues at Cafe Maxx till Oct. 15th (exSat) The “mac & cheese” starter was one of the best we’ve ever tasted. The buffalo roasted cauliflower salad was spicy & very good. Loved the perfectly done duck medallions with the berry glaze as an entree and also the cashew & banana chip crusted fresh fish of the day (mahi-mahi). The desserts were just the right size to finished a lovely dinner and as always the service was excellent!
Jane was s great server and the food was fabulous as always
Went for the crave menu. First time diners. The portions were bigger than we expected for the special menu. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. Only issue were our drinks. Every drink was disgusting. For a table of usual drinkers, only 1 person ordered a second, but played safe with wine
Maybe more training for the bartender, but food wise, would def come back if in the area
Crave menu appetizers me, cauliflower, he, shrimp. Main we both had onion crusted fish and deserts were included. Great value but martinis were pricey.
The Crave menu was generous and everything really delicious and creative. Still one of the best kitchens in Broward.
Excellent as usual!
I brought my family there to celebrate my wife's birthday and we felt rushed, with an unfriendly customer service approach, our 4 orders of appetizers were cold and had to send them back, the bread was served without butter or other spread after the appetizers were sent back for reheating, the main course was extremely bland without respective flavors for each dish. However, the bottle of wine was good and we took our deserts home because we were fed up at that point. We are regulars at your establishment but may have to take a break until your services significantly improved.
Innovative menu with incredible presentation.
A truly wonderful fine dining experience.
We were seated in an area that was kind of like a hallway. Plus the ceiling needs aesthetic improvement. Food was mediocre and service was average. Expected more from this restaurant.
Table cloth was stained, took an hour to get my entrée and it was not that busy. food was ok but ok is not good enough for that price.
Fantastic night celebrating my dad and uncles birthday! Been twinning for 77 years! The food was great and the service was excellent!
Food and service were spot on, perfect. Return customer for many years, consistently excellent.
for the money it could be a little better. The dessert was not very good at all. The pecan pie dessert was ok and not worth the calories and shocking from a place like this. The crust was like cardboard.
Muy buen restaurante
