Maude's Liquor Bar Ratings and Reviews
Great ambiance and cocktails but they managed to lose my credit card (yet still were able to bring me a bill).
Maybe an accident but one that disrupts the crucial trust aspect of paying for a meal (i.e. giving a stranger your credit card in good faith because you know it will be returned.)
In my 27 years of dining, I’ve never had this happen.
We’ve been here twice now and to most of the hog salt restaurants many times. We were excited to find out that Maude’s offered the share a glass instead of corkage fee, similar to what we have done at Bavette’s. However, we were disappointed that our waiter proceeded to pour the full bottle out 5 ways evenly (in fact the glass we shared was more full than one or two of the glasses we kept). In essence we gave away over 20% of our bottle. We were never told who it was given to. Had we known we would have had such a large portion of our nice bottle given awY, we would have just opted to pay the corkage fee. In the past, it was always a smaller pour shared. We still enjoy Maude’s and will done there again but will likely forgo any type of wine experience.
When I looked at the menu online I knew I had to go. All my favorite French foods were there. Claude’s was outstanding! My husband and I shared the cheese and onion fondue, the fois gras pate with cherry jam, salmon tartare and loved it all. The service was great! The place is very romantic.
We've been meaning to go to Maude's Liquor Bar for quite some time and now wish we would've done it sooner. Maude's is a solid choice if you're looking for good food/drink, great service, and an atmosphere that is intimate yet energetic. I would've given a 5/5, but we did find a hair in the salmon tartare - which was unfortunate bc it was delicious! The waiter immediately made the chef aware and the issue was more than taken care of. Overall, it was a great meal and we'll
Great all-around experience. Our server, Brad was very attentive! Every dish was great. Our Maude’s ribeye was a perfect medium rare and had great flavors before the salt or bernaise. The maitake gnocchi was a perfect compliment to the steak, and the chicken liver mousse a great texture plus the escargot was wonderful with a squeeze of lemon to start. I will definitely be back to Maude’s for the onion fondue and will definitely be ordering the steak again.
Excellent in every regard. Best meal I've enjoyed in recent memory and my new favorite French restaurant in the city. I highly recommend the salmon tartare with crème frâiche - it's a revelation. The escargot was perfection along with the crusty warm baguette served with it. My companion who has traveled extensively, lived abroad for years and dined in France many times said the pomme frites were the best she's ever had (high praise). The ambiance is romantic with dim lighting and ornate chandeliers. Our server, Brad, was a doll and just the right amount of attentive. Hostesses were kind and all smiles and don't get me started on the mezcal negroni. ❤️
This was our second time and we lost be it!! The food is awesome and the atmosphere is great!! We love the bring your bottle and share a glass exchange for corkage fee! The food is fantastic!! Everything is great!! Love Ce the ending with the best mouse ever!! Definitely a great lace to be!!
I went with a group of girlfriends who had never been to Maude’s. We ordered several dishes to share. I ordered the steak Tartare which no one really wanted but everyone said it was their favorite. I hadn’t been there in several years but after Tuesday’s dinner I’ll be back sooner then later.
We waited 40 minutes before the waitress returned to take our drink and food order. Once she did she returned only once more during the meal and a third time when we asked for the check (technically also a fourth to deliver the check). Once we ordered our food it came out at break neck speed. The quality of the food was the saving grace. The escargot were delicious, the shrimp cocktail was good, but had one less shrimp than we were told (7 shrimp for two people we were told eight). The steak was delicious, cooked as ordered. The Brussels’s sprouts were a mix of well caramelized and delicious halves to undercooked halves, they were well seasoned. The wine list is limited and a bit over priced. Tables against the wall are close together, requiring they be moved when moving around them. The waitress for the table next to us kept bumping into me when tending to her table.
It is unlikely that we will return or recommend this place.
This place is gorgeous inside. The hosts at the front door were welcoming and asked our seating preference according to the noise level. The lower level is more noisy, bright and open than the second floor. The second floor is more quiet and intimate, and is darker with lower ceilings. We ordered and shared the steak tartare and it was fabulous. The drinks were awesome too. Highly recommended if you're in the area, but make a reservation!
Shareable French food! Most items are meant to be shared so the portions are generous. It's a great way to try a bunch of dishes. The menu is French, but they do their own twist on things like French onion soup served as a fondue without the broth so you get all the caramelized onion and cheesy goodness of the soup without the soup, just spread it on fresh baked bread. Other hits are the mussels and tuna tartare. If you're into cocktails have a whiskey smash.
There's nothing here I don't like!
It took 20 minutes for a server to come to our table. After that service was good. I had the fondue which was a plate of cheese/onions and seemed much more appropriate as an appetizer than a main meal. My son had a pork dish which was good but not outstanding. My daughter had the salmon which was great but very undercooked. Each of us had a drink, an appetizer and a main meal the total bill was $212. Not worth the expense.
