“Max's draw is exactly what has always attracted people to neighborhood restaurants: well-prepared food, served with warmth”
-New York Times, Eric Asimov
amazing food and great staff!
truly great Italian food! great small spot very chill and relaxing meal
Max came highly recommended and did not disappoint!
Beautiful restaurant, delicious food and amazing service !
Delicious food. Very attentive service. Reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend!
Good food, average service, a little pricey
It was roasting hot in the restaurant. Like we were sweating so I don’t know how the employees weren’t absolutely in dire. Mentioned it to a server and he just kind of shook his head at me. Other than the room temperature, everything else was fantastic!
My husband and I make it a point to come here every time we’re in New York. One of our favorites and the food always impresses.
Everything was delicious and the service was great. We enjoyed the outdoor seating with space heaters.
The food was amazing
Great atmosphere and excellent food
Max is our go-to for a great neighborhood meal. Always great, warm, and food is fantastic.
Food was pretty terrible. One of the worst beet salads I have ever had and the French fries were not good. The restaurant vibe and the service was great. Everyone was very friendly. Came here from a recommendation but will not be going back.
A gem of amazing Italian food. The ambience is lovely, service is kind and friendly, and the food is phenomenal. Can’t wait to return!
Max Restaurant was AMAZING! So glad we went. Absolutely delicious food, wonderful staff and a great atmosphere.
This restaurant was wonderful! Quaint, delicious, with personal service. It was a great date spot or a meet up spot- loved it!!!
I thought the service was a bit slow.
Great time out and lovely ambiance, just a couple comments about two dishes we had, remembering similar menu items at Max from a long time ago when they were located in Alphabet City.. the fennel salad was a bit bland. Not so elegant, I think the parmesan strips blended too much in color and size with the fennel, and not enough vinaigrette or salt or zing or something. Also the ragu rigatoni with meatballs… good, but not great, perhaps a little dry. The pane with burrata was fantastic!!! We had a lovely time! Thank you!
We come here often but some items are too expensive…. $15 for a small plate of calamari??? Almost a dollar a ring.
Amazing service and amazing food. One of our favorite restaurants in Tribeca. You can’t go wrong with any of the pastas, especially the lasagna.
Delicious salmon and steak and the tricolore salad was amazing. Wanted the salad first but it all came together and the table was too small to accommodate but it was fine. Great wine selection too. Worth a visit if you love Italian and solid food.
Delicious authentic Italian food in a beautiful setting. The hosts were warm and friendly and the staff was attentive. A little slice of Italian heaven in New York City.
Delish-- first time going there and will defiantly be back! It was much less expensive than I expecting considering the quality of food. At any other restaurant that would be $50 an entree. It was absolute despise
Truly lovely ambiance, great and tasty food, good location, mannered and attentive staff, really clean place.
Every time my children and I, and our friends, dine at Max restaurant, it’s always the most perfect afternoon, everyone is happy because of the mix of beautiful place with great service, and everyone is happily satisfied and enjoying their food.
The worst penne Pomodoro in the city
Food was not good
Worst service ever. Waitress was terrible at her job topped off with a side of rudeness!
Authentic delicious food, incredible dessert.
This place is one of my favorite Italians in the world.
Horrible service, horrible food. Simple as that. With hundreds of restaurants to choose from in NYC, make sure this isn't one on your list of options.
Great experience! A couple of members of my party arrived 20-30 minutes late during Friday evening prime time but our server couldn’t have been more friendly and accommodating, and she did not rush us at all. Food and wine was all terrific and I really enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend!
Max makes it a good outdoor dining experience. Its basic red sauce makes dishes tasty, and the service is excellent. Only question for Max: why $15 for a modest serving of calamari? Answer may be that calamari cost more than ever, but 50 cents a bite seems steep. Happy to come on next trip to Tribeca.
Beware. This place charges 4.00 for a tiny glass of soda. They also don't tell you that the refills will cost as much. When called out on it they say, "I thought you knew." How? How could anyone know? It's not written anywhere that I could see.
Food was ok. My lasagna was like eating pieces of the sun it was so hot but hey what do I know about food temperature.
Service was sub-par. You're in New York. There are plenty of other places to spend your money!
Great restaurant! Tasty food and helpful staff! Definitely will recommend to others!
My kid wanted to have a special meal together so we came here. The meal was delayed and there were some issues so I asked for the food to go instead of sitting there. The restaurant owner called me an hour later to apologize and say she felt really badly we had such a poor experience and ask if we would consider coming back. She also refunded the meal. That was an appreciated gesture.
the best, warmest, friendliest local spot in TriBeCa
My friends and I loved the experience and entrees. We were a party of 3. I personally, was impressed by the octopus appetizer. It was a yummy arugula salad and shreds of (cold) fresh octopus aka deliciousness 😋
Ok food. Bruschetta and Rigatoni Napolitano. Glass of Chianti. Service was not great. Waiter took order and only saw him when I waived him down. Pasta took a long time to come out of the kitchen, which is usual now. Busboys we’re great.
Amazing food - my whole party was impressed. And great value for the money especially in New York! Everything was hot, tasty, and strong yet affordable wine selection.
Best Italian meal I've had in this city in a long time!
