Waitress didn’t care is was a Birthday celebration. Rushed us to take wine order. Leaned over the table as if she was bored!!! Went because it was on Diner, drive ins and dives. Don’t bother going. Find another local place...,don’t waste your money

My wife and I chose Maxwell's the night before the Salt Lake City Marathon because we wanted pasta and it was walking distance from our hotel. The food and atmosphere were fine, but when you order a pasta dish that is all you get. I thought we'd at least get some bread, maybe something to dip the bread, and maybe even a salad. Nope.
The service was ok and they called me a few hours before my reservation to confirm. If you are in the area and want Italian it's fine, but I wouldn't make a special trip.

Our server was great, but the kitchen messed up our order in a couple of ways. Felt like the manager should have done more to correct and smooth over the situation.

Maxwells has amazing food. I would recommend the original philly but anything on the menu is probably awesome. My husband really loved the chicken pasta with Mom mom’s sauce. The only downfall to our visit was they were out of 3 different drink choices. For a Friday night during March Madness that was hard to believe. Could have just been an off night.

Seating was horrible, we had 10 people and they put us in a huge elevated booth where we couldn't hear each other. Food was okay, but not worth the price per plate. Service was mediocre at best.

Service was pathetic . . . Waitresses said that they were “slammed” . . . The place clearly was not. It was Super Bowl Sunday just before kickoff . . . The place was 2/3rds full. I’m assuming that the owner/manager would have to be grossly incompetent to understaff at a time like this . . . Maybe the waitress was just bad at her job. It seemed like a combination. The waitress never smiled and seemed annoyed 90% of the time. She would yell across the bar counter at our table to see if we needed anything. . . Usually after my drink had been empty for 25”. (I know, a tragic 1st world problem . . . 😋🤣)
Never go there again.

Food quality was mediocre, but the pizza was very good.

Service was very slow.

Lively vibe and ambience.

Would only recommend going for pizza -- pasta and salads were below average in quality and taste.

Had the Italian pork sandwich with a side salad. Both were tasty and the service was excellent, however...I asked for a piece of provolone cheese on the sandwich and was charged $2. Two dollars for a piece of provolone cheese! Had I known beforehand that it would cost that much-would not have added it. I thought maybe 75 cents at the most...didn't know until the bill came. A whole package of Sargento cheese (12 pieces) is only 2.68 at the store. That was a huge turn off. If I wasn't a huge fan of their pizza, this experience would make me not want to go back.

We picked the wrong night, they were having serious issues with servers and only had one for the entire restaurant. The manager and others were doing their best to expedite but orders were wrong, one missing altogether, their version of an Old Fashioned was cloyingly sweet, their signature meatball was unappealing, it took three tries to get our separate checks right, not a good experience. The bright spot was the stuffed mushroom appetizer was quite good.

Made a reservation but arrived and table wasn't ready, but the hostess did everything right to make sure we were comfortable and got us a drink- Clone the hostess very valuable employee. Once we were seating we received our drinks very quickly and the food came out quickly- The General Manager came out to talk to us after he found out that there was a little trouble with our reservation to our surprise gave us a gift certificate to use on our next visit which wasn't necessary but very thankful - Great job Scott- Overall good experience and will definitely come back to try some pizza as it looked great going out to the tables.

If this place were really an "East Coast Eatery," it wouldn't last a month. Service was incredibly slow (half an hour for the salad to arrive, 15 minutes for a drink). Ravioli was good, actually, and salad was ok, but the red sauce was much too sweet and heavy. The server asked if I'd like meat on top, and I'd noticed that you could get "meatballs" on a pizza and so ordered them. What came was one giant, bready, meatloaf-type lump , in a separate bowl, that had to be 1/3 pound at least--and cost $9 extra; it wasn't listed or described on the menu (unless several of these giant things are what one gets on a pizza) and he didn't describe it--just sold it to me and charged me. None of the house red wines was available ("oh, we're out," he said blithely) and he tried to sell me a $13 glass instead--at what is essentially a pizza joint. Will be warning my friends who have lived in the east that this is NOT anything like a real Italian joint back there--except maybe a low-rent one.

Started good, but quickly went downhill. Extensive alcohol menu, but when we ordered a tequila selection, we were eventually told they were out of it. When asked about other another respasado, we were told nothing but "silver" was in stock. Lame
Food took 25 min after ordered to arrive, and was not worth wait. After all this, they tried to over charge us for the tequila shots!
Good place for 22 year olds to hook up, but not recommended for anything else . . .
