Great, hospitable service, the menus and specials were fully explained. 2 appetizers and 2 entrees were superb. I highly recommend Massimo’s for a special occasion or a quiet night out.

Our waiter was terrific. The bar was slammed as there was a big party on the other side of the restaurant. The food was, as always fantastic! However it would be nice if they had some new and more interesting craft cocktails on the drink menu. Overall, it was a wonderful evening and we are never disappointed with Massimo’s. Bravo!

We just adore Massimo's. Everything about dinning there is so pleasant and delicious. We always request Bertrand because there is no one who takes better care of us in the Fine Dinning business. Our cocktails were made just right, and the Calamari was so crunchy and good. My husband fully enjoyed his Osso Bucco and my Rack of Lamb was juicy and very tasty. Next time I would order it medium instead of medium rare, but since the portions are so generous, I had the pleasure of enjoying some at home, and it was perfect. Also, their house wines are really nice. We can see why they had a private party of over 50 people because they know how to please everyone who walks in their door. And a visit by Chef Massimo is always the icing on the cake!

Massimo's lives up to his name it's always an eclectic fine dining experience, however he needs to interject another adjective in his title such as AWESOME, Outstanding or Phenomenal, because that's what you can expect their! He never fails to knock our socks off, every single time we dine with him! The entire experience from soup to nuts is 5 star ⭐️

I would recommend Massimo's to anyone for a special occasion. The food is great, the service is excellent and the chef is the owner. He greets each table. I've been there three times and each meal has been excellent.

Excellent food and outstanding wine selection make this my go to choice for a fine meal. As usual, Massimo personally checks with each table to assure that everyone is satisfied.

Server seemed a bit distracted but this is unusual.

We went with our friends. We brought them because we love this place. We went on a Wednesday night, 7/24. Unfortunately they were out of what one of our guests wanted. Then they ran out of the dessert they wanted. Not such a good deal for them. We said that is not normally the way it is. We just don't understand running out of food in the middle of the week. Sad

Outstanding. Never better. Server comes out and rattles off like eight specials. WOW. Took awhile to decide.
