I was so excited to visit Maximon for my partners birthday and the beautiful ambience was amazing. However from entry I was disappointed. The patio was closed and it was not raining. The music from band was extremely overbearing and noise from the patrons were loud because they were screaming at each other and drunk. The waiter did not come to our table for 10 minutes and we moved tables three times because of noise level. The waiter could not here my order and brought me the wrong drank. Then to top it off no one ever told us it was 15 minutes before kitchen closed. We did get an appetizer which was pork rib and it was delicious. It was his birthday and besides the hostess no one even mentioned it. We left the money and tip on table because no one ever came back to table. Very disappointing that a restaurant at the Four Seasons hotel would have this type of staff.

I think they were just having an off night, but the service was not what I would expect from the Four Seasons…this began when walking into the hotel, to the hostess, and service.

Our waiter was nice, and we were checked on. Thank you!

What I ordered (portobello fajitas) were very plain, and when I asked if I could have sauce or guacamole, I had to pay extra.

The Cabernet Sauvignon was great!

The restaurant was nice!

The $18 margaritas tasted like cheap sour mix and sugar water. The first two times I dined at Maximon, the margaritas were spectacular! Despite the steep price, we were willing to spend the money, because they were worth every penny. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the drinks were awful, and the ceviche was not fresh. I hope it’s just a pandemic-related issue, and it clears up once everyone gets back on their feet.

The food was amazing and so were the drinks. However service was terrible and to top it off, a woman helping behind the bar dropped a drink strainer on the ground, lightly rinsed with water and begin using it to make drinks. I was very angry seeing this. I tried to get our waiters attention because these drinks were being served. My drink was also made with that strainer. I told him that I’m not drinking it , could he please wash the strainer and remake my drink. He apologized and did so. Management needs to make it clear that anything that touches the floor should be washed throughly. I was thrown off after that so we left. It’s scary to think that if I had not saw that, I would have been drinking a contaminated drink. Sadly drinks went out to others.

I’ve been there for a dinner & I loved it, so I thought abt coming back for a brunch. The brunch was expensive for no reason & the portion sizes were very little. I don’t eat much, but I found myself ordering had 2 more plates of food. Ambiance was good.

I have been trying to get reservations for a while and finally secured them for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Invited some friends and we spent the night reconnecting and enjoying each other's company. Both the foods and drinks were really good. It was good to be out and about again.

8 dollars for a bottle of water? 25 dollars for 2 tacos ? 55 dollars for 2 small lamb chops and one was all fat. Paid 50 dollars for a 10 taco platter and the rice was hard. Food not that good and waaaay overpriced. Couldn’t even order a cocktail because I have a vertical Virginia license they thought was fake so I had to order a 12 dollar horchata that was literally 60% ice in these very little cups. Would not recommend. Spent 200 dollars in total and ate a whole lot of nothing

Went for my wife's birthday, had a great experience. Really like the ambiance, the drinks, and the food is pretty good. I must say though - it's time to bring back the fried chicken tacos! That was one of the best things on the menu and it's been gone for many months now!

Food was good, atmosphere is neat, but the service wasn’t that good. This was my second time here. The waiter seemed to be busy, but there didn’t seems to be a lot of people. The service was the only thing that was disappointing. Took awhile to get our drinks,appetizers and dinner. Overall, I’d give it a 7

It's so nice to have a restaurant serve authentic, elevated Mexican cuisine. Maximon is not your typical Rivers of Melted Cheese Americanized Mexican restaurant. This is the place I've been waiting for. Great food, amazing service, beautiful setting. I really can't say enough. I cannot wait to go back, as I want to try every single dish on the menu. My friend and I made it through six last night, so I have a few more visits before I'll get to say I've sampled them all!

Extremely disappointed. First, they do not have the breakfast menu from 10 to 11 available online and did not know their regular menu was not available during our reservation. When we arrived we were told that the parking lot was not going to be validated as I was told on the phone when I made my reservation, so we moved our car to valet to come to find out that it’s only discounted not validated so they are very misleading.Then it Took over a half hour to get our drinks. The food portions are not in line with the prices. It was not a good experience and I would not recommend it.

Very disappointing- the place is beautiful, but we had the worst meal there in a long time - the ceviche,was bland, the rhubarb beet salad just tasted awful, the portobello fajitas was not edible, burnt and overpowered by cinnamon and salt . The shrimp taco was ok, but nothing to rave about. All in all, we had high expectations and were thoroughly disappointed. Then, the bill!cane! Never paid so much for such a poor quality meal! Never again.

We visited for my Fiancée's Birthday and couldn't have been more pleased. They sat us a great table and the service was exceptional. We opted to try 6 small plates rather than one entrée, and were very pleased that we did. Very creative dishes and beautiful plating. We can't wait to go back!
