Jess, our server, was very gracious. The food was really good but there could have been, in my opinion, some more bread choices.

The food was outstanding and surpassed only by Lorena, our impeccable server! Lorena was attentive, yet unintrusive, and highly knowledgeable about the food and libations. EBC is fortunate to have her on their staff!

Italian Night is a great idea, but the pasta bar is disappointing. Ingredients like sausages are rationed out in minuscule portions, and they run out of everything but linguini and shell noodles prettty quickly. Like the pasta bar, the salad bar has fewer and fewer choices as the 8 o'clock hour approaches as well, so get there early! The risotto was delicious tho!

We had great service from our waitress Lorena. She is very personable and attentive. The rib dinners were not as good. I don’t like the Smokey flavor and it’s spicy Taste . I wished it was the small baby back ribs we had before, instead of the large clumsy ribs we were served.

My granddaughter and I had a wonderful experience dining at Maxwell’s at East Bank Club on Friday evening! The Italian night was fantastic as my granddaughter loves pasta! The jazz trio was so entertaining too! I plan on making a reservation for 2 again on Friday September 6th! Thank You.

The appetizer was good and then ordered the filet sliders. One was good, the other was all gristle and horrible.

Told the server (she was fabulous) to talk to the manager. The manager refused to remove the item from my bill. She told me she spoke tot he chef and he said it was cooked perfectly. Rather than check with me first, she went to the chef who did not know why it was unacceptable.

Now she tells me she will remove the one filet slider from my bill. Suffice it to say, by the time I taught her how to be a proper manager, the sliders were removed from the bill and desert was comped. Who needs the aggravation. The food used to be amazing, now not worth going back.

As a vegetarian there were limited options for $30 per person and the pasta station was not good- sauce was too watery, lacked flavor.

It was pasta night so there were even more choice than usual. Music from the bar made for very a nice ambiance. Lorena is fantastic - humorous, attentive and friendly.

Went for their Easter brunch. Have gone there multiple times for the Easter brunch and regular Sunday brunch. Always a nice selection of healthy and regular items available on the buffet. Reasonable price for the wide selection of food. We have a dog and like the heated underground parking. The weather is never an issue when leaving the dog in the car while eating. Parking is about $5.00 with validation. Make reservations early if you want specific time slot because they fill up fast. The staff is always very helpful and friendly! I would highly recommend their Sunday brunches.

Maxwell's offers consistent service, food quality and drinks. Servers proactively provide details that enhance the experience. I had the beet salad (always on my must list), crab cake starter and Butternut Squash Gnudi.

Consistently good food and somewhat laidback service which is not a problem unless you're in a hurry! Brunch is one of the best in the city with nice variety & made to order waffle.

We have eaten at Maxwell's quite a bit as we are East Bank Club members. We were very disappointed in our experience Tuesday. The service was not good, the food took an exceptionally long time, and my dish, which is a seasonal one, was really not right. We happened to notice that a couple at a table near ours was also having difficulty with their order. We have never had a bad experience at Maxwell's before and hope that this was just a really bad night.

Wonderful meal as usual. I dine here all the time and it is consistently good. First the bring to the table a plate of carrots, celery olive and radishes , with a wonderful bread basket . Then the menu is large so there are lots of choices . With lots of healthy options. In the bar they have entertainment so it is fun to sit and eat in there also.
