    The food was meh and definitely overpriced for the quality. The hostess and the check in process is definitely the weakest part of their game. If it hadn’t been for amazing service elsewhere in the restaurant, I would have rated much lower.

    Maxwells is the best fine dining restaurant in the Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo area. The food is spectacular and the staff is always on point. It’s always my choice for that special evening and the experience always leaves me wanting to come back for more.

    The server wanted nothing to do with us after we only ordered entrees. Our server was very attentive in the beginning, but once my husband and I only ordered entrees she completely stopped coming to the table, and wanted nothing to do with us.

    Food and service are outstanding! It was very busy because it was an event evening so even with a reservation you should prepare to wait a little bit but the drinks are nice while you are waiting. Pricing wise be prepared to pay for the experience but you won’t be sorry you did. We always go all out and order everything when they offer the special menus and recommend this.

    We were a few minutes early but were immediately seated. Jared, our server was wonderfully attentive and so knowledgeable on the menu. The food was outstanding, from appetizers through dessert. My husband and his brother celebrated their birthday and were delighted by the delicious meal and special treat for dessert. Thank you so much for making their night memorable.

    For me this restaurant is, by far, the best in Fargo. It would rank between the bests restaurants even in a big cosmopolitan metropoli. The food is delicious, sofisticated, giving refreshing options away from the eternal classics. The wine choice is outstanding, the attention top notch, the ambience warm.

    Maxwells is THE best restaurant in the FM area. I have never been over enthused about the atmosphere in the dining are unless you are looking for a quite date night. We sat in the bar at a table and had another great experience. Food, drinks, atmosphere, service and you have to mention the FOOD again. Tell me a restaurant that has better food in Fargo/Moorhead than Maxwells...I'll wait. Thanks again Maxwells!! We'll see you again soon :)

    Wife had a good meal. Even a good dessert. However, a steak house that doent offer A1 or 57 sauce sucks. Rarely a steakhouse is that good. I will never go there again. Evam Murray's in Mpls offers it and they are one of the few that has steaks that good. 1 chance was too many. Better places to eate.
