Max's Restaurant, Cuisine of the Philippines
Let me start off this review by stating that I made reservations for my mom's birthday a month in advance on Open Table. Max's was available for reservation on the website so I thought that meant my group of 8 was set. However when we arrived and I informed them of my reservation, the front host informed us they don't check their online reservations (even though Open Table told me later they've had this option since 2015) and even if they did, they don't honor it during their "busy" times. I informed them that any other night I wouldn't have minded the wait, however I made this reservation far in advance and it was my mom's bday that day, and they drove 6 hours from California without stopping to grab a meal since we were supposed to have dinner here. I told them I made the reservation online, showed them proof that in fact their restaurant had reservations available on Open Table (which they should know about since you ask the website to be put on there), and the host looked confused as ever. After what felt like a long time discussing with the host who said she'll speak to her manager and with another host, I finally just begged them to see if they can set up a makeshift table for our group since we were hungry and had no other plan B that accommodates our large party that late. When the male host returned telling us they're getting a table ready, the original female host pulled him aside and told him that they really should prioritize the other people waiting. That frustrated me the most because I truly believe if you have online reservations available, you should honor it. And although it is up to the restaurant's discretion on which patrons they choose to serve, I've never heard of being turned down for having online reservations and not honoring it because they're "busy". Ultimately we were able to argue our way to a table at eat there but I hope no one else faces this issue. After talking to Open Table, they agreed they've never heard of such a thing as well.
The taste is good and the food is properly served in a decent amount. The price is moderate and worth it for the food that you’re getting. My family enjoyed the authentic Filipino food. We would definitely be back once we stop by Las Vegas again.
Yummy Filipino food
The food was delicious but service from our server Enzo could have been better. My husband ordered a beer when our drink orders were taken but he did not receive it until near the end of our meal. Also, he ordered the pork skewer as part of his entree and Enzo never brought it out either. We had to ask a few servers in the restaurant to check up on our drink and/or wine. Eventually we canceled the pork skewer order because we had an appointment to be at.
My daughter’s after graduation dinner with the family was superb..service was great & food were awesome..til next time! Thanks Max’s 👏🏻👏🏻
The food was delicious and our server was pleasant. We enjoyed our experience and we will definitely come back the next time we are in Las Vegas.
Great place to eat......go every time I'm in Vegas. Get the Chicken.
Went out of the way to go try this place. My wife is Filipino. She was excited. Just didn't match up to expectations. The famous chicken is no better than a rotiserrie chicken from the local market. The authentic dishes we had were bland and just not even close to the home cooked versions we make at family gatherings. The only thing that kept a 3 star rating was their Halo Halo is the best we have ever had.
We had a great time. Staff are courteous and attentive. Food is great.
I had a reservation at 8 pm, but it seemed everyone else was seated before my group. We didn't get our table until 8:20 pm, which defeated the purpose of a reservation. The food was great. The place was busy so waited a little for the food.
Chicken is really good that's always . The sisig that was served to us is spoiled. We had diarrhea after. My mom did not eat sisig she was the only one that was not affected.
service was poor , they appeared to be short staffed I came in 30 minutes ahead of my reservation so I could sit and order ahead of my party , asking for the menu, I had to walk around to look for my waitress. but it to took some more to be able to give my order
the restaurant was not full at the time
the waitress was nice and tried her best to serve us .
Yung sisig off yung lasa sa pagka sisig. Parang ang layo ng lasa sa sisig. May na lasahan akong luya at suka na parang hindi ko na lasahan sa mga sisig sa Pampanga where the dish originally came from.
Yung lechon kawali 10% pork skin 5% lean meat 85% fat
Always love Filipino cuisine.
Excellent food and priced right!
Was seated quickly although reservations were not necessary on that night. Service was excellent despite several large groups. Food quality was very good with one exception. The "Halo-Halo" desert had too much crushed ice - by about 50% - which diluted the flavors of the other ingredients. Other wise a very good experience. We'll be back.
This was a great find. Excellent menu of a cusine not often food in the US. Good proportions. Outstanding price for Las Vegas. A place where the locals gather, couples and families.
been here several times. will go back again on our next trip to vegas.
Excellent menu line up, reminds us of home cooked food back in thePhilippines! Geraldine our server made everything easy from order of appetizers to dessert! Great pace to revisit
THE RESTAURANT WAS ACCOMODATING , PLACED ME IN AN AREA WHERE THE 2 TODLERS W/ ME DID NOT DISTURB ANYONE.
Great if you ate looking for Filipino cuisine in Vegas. Good selection and authentic flavors.
As always, Max's didn't disappoint. We love the food, Bangus Sisig on a sizzling platter, Filipino Bistek was tender, and the Pancit Bihon was flavorful. We ended that with a Halo-halo. We left with a gastronomical happiness.
Good food, good service, great place. Will definitely go back
