Enjoyable atmosphere, and just good food. Had the grilled octopus, and it was very good. Anytime we want good seafood, we can count on Max’s.

This is one of our favorite places to go because the food is just consistently excellent across-the-board. We each ordered something different: cod for one, Arctic char for another, steelhead trout for me. All were cooked to exactly the degree of doneness each of us requested, and we appreciated the flexibility our waiter gave to us with respect to side dishes. For appetizers, the shrimp cocktail seems price-y, but the size of the shrimp is impressive, and the Caesar salads are always perfectly done here, right down to the croutons. Eating here is never cheap, of course, but the presentation and quality are always spot-on, and we see consistently excellent service from one visit to the next. One last thing: we frequently come here with a fourth person who needs to be both gluten-free and dairy-free at the same time. Although this person didn't happen to be with us on this night, it's worth mentioning that Max Fish handles food allergies expertly -- so much so that this is one of our favorite go-to spots when the fourth person joins us for dinner. Another great meal, thanks so much!

I would recommend Max Fish with the caveat that my experience as very hit and miss. The restaurant itself is nice. I was there on a Thursday night for dinner. Ate in the bar and had a comfortable table (not crowded by other tables) and noise level was low for a bar (i.e., there was activity but it wasn't overbearing). Our waitress was helpful and pleasant. Wine selection is very good. Crab cake appetizer was great but not enough sauce on the plate (little drizzle). Then the meals came. Unfortunately, I chose the cod a la plancha and it was bland and very one-note. There were no real textural elements so the entree ate soft and mushy -- and it was room temperture vs. hot. Dessert was ok -- nothing to write home about. So, the evening was hit and miss. So good elements, some bad (it's just unfortunate that the entree was the low point).

We had a reservation on March 6th. Food was good. Expensive but good. The waitress was horrible. I wish I got her name, but we never felt so rushed before. She didn’t smile, she kind of argued w us when we asked to change something w a meal and was constantly hovering an rushing us. I left her a very good tip on a $137 check and I should not have. Will not come back unfortunately. I wish I had her name but the check amount and 6:15 reservation and my name should be enough to figure out who she is.

I went with my husband and another couple. We had 7:15 reservation and were seated right around then. We didn’t leave until around 10:00pm because of the extremely slow service. We were not lingering having drinks. We were there that long strictly because of the service. Almost 3 hours for a two course dinner is way too long. It took us forever to get our drinks (water and our bar drinks) throughout the entire meal. We had to ask multiple times. A woman, who I think was the manager, came over before our dinner meals came out to apologize for the delay and asked if we wanted anything. At that point we just wanted our dinner. Nothing was taken off of our bill and that was in poor taste, in our opinion. Obviously she knew we had waited an excessive amount of time. Further, one of us asked some questions about a meal before ordering it (was the seafood out of the shells) and was told it was when in fact it wasn’t. He would not have ordered it if he knew he had to take out of shells. Finally, my husband’s meal was not what he ordered. He didn’t complain or send it back because we had waited so long.
We frequent Max’s so we’re really disappointed by this experience. It is usually one of our go to restaurants and we eat out at least once a week. We may hesitate to go there the next time we eat out because this experience was sub par to say the least. It was not the usual experience we have.

One word comes to mind when we dine at MaxFish:consistency!

The food and service are consistently great.

You can always count on Brian greeting patrons or serving something.

The filet mignon is better the NYC Steakhouses.

The fish entree’s are always new and inviting!

See you soon

We had 6 people in our group. 2 of them had never been to any of the Max’s.
We always have had excellent service but this time was different. We were seated in a tight corner. Had to wait for even anyone to come to the table to introduce themselves.
The drinks took a bit to come to us and we had to ask about the specials.
When we did receive food. The waiter reached over people to serve ones. Very awkward.
The food was very good except for my friends soup which was cold.
Overall we had a nice night though.

We had a 4:30 reservation and arrived 10 minutes early. We were told we had to wait until our reservation time to be seated. We stood at the front door for 10 minutes with my 83 year old mother and then we were seated in an empty room.

Everything was great. My only issue was that the waitress spoke very very quickly and at times we needed to ask her to back up and slow down. The food and wine were terrific. The setting was quiet yet vibrant. The chef was flexible with requests for carb / other substitutes. I will be back.
