As always a great evening & exceptional food quality.
Could be a little more attentive with the service but better than most. Dinner rolls were pathetic ; beet salad was a good choice ; as was the tempura perch main. Enjoyed the live music provided by local talent. Will continue to support and would recommend.
Everything about the evening at Max Resto Lounge was wonderful! Great food, service and ambience! The owner was so friendly and very helpful :) It was a great Mother's Day dinner ❤️
Second visit....tried different menu items than the first time. So far, every dish has been top notch.
Early Mother's Day dinner for 7 people. Food was excellent, and the selection was great even for picky teenagers! The musician was excellent - sounded very much like Norah Jones.
We thoroughly enjoyed Mother's Day at Max. It is a real gem amongst all the chain restaurants around. The food was wonderful, our waitress very accommodating as we had a guest who had to eat gluten free. We will certainly return.
Excellent food. Good entertaining guitarist and singer. We could hear her well and the music did not drown out personal conversation. However, I think we had the one table where you could not see her at all.
Restaurant short staffed that night, however we were quickly acknowledged. First drink order slow to be taken but excellent knowledgeable and friendly service after that.
Look forward to my next opportunity to dine there.
Terrific gem in Burlington, Ontario. Exceptional menu, with key parts (ie pasta) prepared on site. Love the low key entertainment in the evening at the perfect level...loud enough to hear, but, not too loud to impede conversation. Tremendous service, and, I believe great value for the price....you can't go wrong here!!
Impressed with everything. From the vibe of the room; outstanding service from Gabriella; the food was exceptional and fairly priced; and the live music supplied by a young Sarah Mills put it over the top. My new favourite place to eat in Burlington. Definitely will be back.
A great restaurant and an overall lovely experience. Service was stellar, food was excellent with varied choices and the bottle of wine we wanted wasn't available so they upgraded the bottle but charged us the same price. I definitely recommend this restaurant!
Great evening with entertainment!
We had an excellent meal with very good service. I would recommend it to anyone.
We were quite happy with Max, the atmosphere etc. was just what we wanted. Food, drinks, service was fine with one exception.
My wife ordered the steak, medium rare and it came medium. The waitress happily took it back to the kitchen, but a few minutes later the head waiter came back with it and tried to convince her that it really was medium-rare. She refused, and it was taken back and removed from the bill. I don't expect this at all. When one pays $35+ for a steak, it should come as ordered. If the kitchen goofs and overcooks it, that's their problem, and theirs to correct.
Very diverse menu, including a tasting menu with or without wine pairings. Very nice décor, and live music. I have been twice and at least one of the owners was there each time, and both the owner and waitstaff are very attentive.
Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. A very talented musician provided entertainment, at volume that permitted conversation. This was my first visit, and won't be my last.
Excellent for and great music.
It was my husband and father-in-law’s birthdays, and I not only indicated this on the Open Table reservation, but called the restaurant a couple of days ahead to confirm that they had the information. I was assured that they did and that they would certainly acknowledge the birthdays especially at dessert time. Unfortunately, after dinner when I got up to look, I could not find our waitress and she did not know that it was a special occasion. When she had the chance to rectify the situation, she simply ran to get a candle and lighter to stick the candle on the plate. It was very disappointing. I was a little embarrassed. It was great that - at the beginning of the meal - our waitress allowed us to have a wine by the glass that would usually only be sold by the bottle, but unfortunately it did not make up for the birthday oversight. It is one thing to make a mistake, but another to half-heartedly try make up for it. We won’t be going back to the restaurant to celebrate any more special occasions!
Max continues to deliver excellent food and service. Exceptional value.
We enjoyed a lovely evening at Max. We all ordered something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. Wine by the glass was well priced. Quantity of food was generous. Live music was a nice addition. We will return.
It is always amazing!!! My husband requested jerk chicken and it was amazing!! I had the lobster and shrimp linguine with a lemon basil cream sauce and it was to die for!! Looking forward to our next visit.
Met a friend there for lunch. We were greeted by and received very attentive and friendly service by the wait staff. Our menu selection questions were answered nicely. We what we ordered was good value. Lovely homemade cauliflower mushroom soup with a small caesar salad with chicken skewer option. Nice ambience. Great cocktail menu. Would definitely go back again.
Friendly casual atmosphere. Young artist playing guitar and singing was fabulous! Staff are very friendly!
We generally go to Cucci in Oakville but decided to try this local restaurant. The host was good and so was the ambiance. The waitress made a mistake and bought one appertizer which I shared with my wife. We asked her to bring a second one but she forgot. She was very friendly and it was busy so we let it go. The Caprese salad with tiger shrimp (that we shared) was very good.
I had the 10 oz steak which was small, thin and full of gristle. It was cooked correctly and the sauce was good.
My wife had the chicken which was dry but the other meals seemed good.
We choose the restaurant based on the reviews and it did not reach are expectations based on the ratings.
We dined at the Carriage House the following night and there was a big difference in the overall satisfaction with the meal.
I hope you view this as constructive criticism as the restaurant does have many positives.
Tasting Menu was fantastic, paired with very nice wines which we picked up at the LCBO afterwards to enjoy at home. Live Music was fun as well!
Was the worst schnitzel possible that you can have. Was dry and very salty.
Had a wonderful meal with my wife, we started with the tempura shrimp, very nicely presented and the first few of the five tiger shrimp we excellent, the last two had been sitting a little too long and the grease was built up, wife had the chicken portabelo
Very good shed order again I chose the hunters schnitzel, it was OK a little tough, I wouldn't get it again. Desert was the Vanilla Creme Brule very good ! Service was excellent and timely, no frivolous trips to check on us and the privacy was great at dinner, would go again soon!
It’s a smaller restaurant then most but was a quiet night, so many tables to choose from and they sat us right next to the man playing live music so it was very loud, once we ordered our main course meal took almost half hour to be made and then dessert took a while as well for a not so busy restaurant seemed too long of a wait for food. We had to ask 3 times for the check before they brought it to us. The meats were well done but the vegetables tasted soggy and old.
Menu offers such an interesting variety of foods. Staff were very attentive, food was top notch.
Dinner was great, service a tad behind but it was a Saturday night. Only one complaint we froze all night, had to put our coats on to eat. Saw others doing the same.
The food was excellent and the serving staff was friendly. The only thing we did not like was that the music was far too loud. We had a hard time hearing each others conversation as you needed to either speak up loudly or speak right at the person next to you, which would leave the people across the table out of your conversation. Otherwise a good dining experience.
Really nice atmosphere. Good food and great staff!
Hidden Gem! Lovely ambience and very welcoming setting. Staff were polite and courteous and the finish was excellent. Would certainly recommend it and will definitely go back.
Wonderful sophisticated ambiance. A real find for Burlington.
Amazing, romantic restaurant! Real candles on the tables, dark lighting, and good energetic atmosphere. The service was on point. Cocktails were tasty and well made. We ordered the surf and turf special and beef stroganoff. Both were delicious! We will for sure be back soon!!
Discovered this restaurant during Taste of Burlington.... fantastic find! The wine pairings with their tasting menu were an extra treat. Highly recommend!
Awesome little restaurant with a menu that is sure to please everyone. We brought our own wine and cork fee was very reasonable. Personable service, wonderful desserts! Great people watching as this place is always full. It was our second visit there and we were definetely not disappointed. Will come back again soon.
This is our second visit and we brought friends with us. Everyone enjoyed the food and wine. The entertainment can get a little loud, especially if seated too close, therefore making it difficult to have conversations....no objections to having entertainment, as long as you are seated further away.
Would go back again and recommend it to friends.
We love Max Resto Lounge, went there for "Taste of Burlington" but so many other delights were on the menu. Had a fabulous dinner as always and looking forward to the next time!!
I highly recommend this restaurant.
Live this restaurant. Have been quite a few times and have never had a bad experience, even when I’ve been with a group, not one person had a bad meal. The food is amazing, the service exceptional. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in Burlington. It truly is a hidden gem
