We had a very nice meal for not very much money. Service was top notch. We always enjoy going to Max's!

I met an old high school friend for lunch at Max's Redwood City, having had lunch earlier in the week at the Original Max's in Burlingame. I ordered the same food at both restaurants just so I could compare: Matzo ball soup and a pastrami sandwich. Unlike Original Max's, where the soup properly came out very hot, the first try at this restaurant was barely luke warm soup, which I had to send back. It was fine on the second try, but an attentive chef/server would not let that happen. The sandwich was fine. The server was o.k., but also not as attentive as the lady who served me at Original Max's. Thus, I would rank this experience as good but not as satisfying as Original Max's.

Someone with a child came into the restaurant and went up to patrons holding up a sign requesting money. The wait staff all seemed oblivious to what was going on. She left when none of the patrons gave her money. I was concerned about the child.

I enjoyed our family meal here, even if it was two wives, me, and 4 children! What I didn't like was that we kept asking the 14 year old young lady to get up and get water (she was the most accessible and not taking care of the little ones), and the servers not once asked us if we'd like water! Wow, how obvious could we have been. I'm pretty sure the server never once came by until our water cups were all filled to ask how everything was; FINE since we just served ourselves and the food was good! The wait for the food was not cool either, pretty long for what should have been some easy stuff, aside from the pot pies. We just thought they would ask if we wanted the kids food sooner, since plain friggin pasta with butter isn't a very hard reheat feat! SMH, overall, I would do it again, the food was good, but we'll be a little more pushy next time if needed.

Max's is one of the few deli type restaurants still to be found. A varied menu that can please most everyone. Though the food is OK, it is still a good place to go in a "pinch".

Just a fun first date. Great place for it, they have all kinds of foods. Something for everyone. Checked on by our waiter just enough, not so much that it was annoying, the right amount so my water glass was always full.
