Jorge is the best server and kind individual. He made us feel welcome at Maximon. Jorge is also very knowledgeable on the food selection so he made the difference in our visit to Maximon. Thank you.

Everything about this restaurant is perfect. I rated the noise level as moderate because there was a live band, which was so tasteful. The band added to the ambience, will definitely be back soon!!
Oh yeah the Food, A1. I will recommend the lamb chops on small plate, guac and the Wagyu tacos😋

And the cocktail with the egg white in it!

My trip to Maximon was a last-minute but surprising reservation. Having previously been to Wit & Wisdom which was previously in that location, I was absolutely blown away about the change in decor. It felt like I stepped into a restaurant at a high-end Mexico resort. Sadly, that's where my positive time here ended.

My party was late joining me but that should not have been a reason for why I was not promptly treated and at least given water. It took about 10 minutes for that to happen while the restaurant was not busy at 11:30am. I ordered the egg white cocktail, Parhelio, which was fantastic...but came 20 min later.

I did speak to Coalie (sp?) and mentioned to him that the service was less than desirable and he aided in taking care of me. I ordered the Hamachi as an app and while it came out absolutely beautiful...it tasted less than desirable. I then switched to guacamole which was amazing. The figs in it were an extremely nice touch.

For my brunch, I ordered the Torta Bendicto and my friend ordered the Norteno. My eggs benedict came with prosciutto on top that was dark and chewy tasting. I did not particularly enjoy my meal however my friend enjoyed her food a lot and would recommend it.

All in all, I'm disappointed in my first time visiting this establishment, and considering that this is owned by the Atlas Group (which I didn't know until I signed my check with their name on the pen) I am not surprised. I don't know if I would give this place another try but it sure is pretty.

We went to celebrate my birthday at Maximon and we had a wonderful dining experience! We’ve never been there before and didn’t know what to expect. The service was excellent, food came out quickly, they cleared our small tables quickly to fit more plates, and our drinks came out delicious. The waitress was informative and had great suggestions for which plates to get. The food was delicious! Everything we tried was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Presentation was excellent. Yes, it’s quite expensive for what you get but we left feeling satisfied. Will definitely come back to try a platter next time!

I’ll start with the positive. The food was absolutely delicious, and the dining room is beautiful. There was live music, which was quite lovely. I came here with a friend after a UMD alumni event that was held close by. If I’m honest, maybe I was underdressed for the restaurant in a Maryland tshirt and Adidas (not that this was stated anywhere, just making a personal assumption based on my experience). We only came here because my friend had been here once last year, and had a nice experience and loved the food.

When we arrived, we were greeted cheerfully by a male employee who kindly walked us over to the host stand, since we entered from the patio entrance. The hostess was also kind as she checked us in for our reservation (which was at a non-busy time - just before 2pm) and walked us to our table. Even the gentleman who brought our food out from the kitchen was very nice to us when he came to our table. These 3 are the only reason I have chosen to leave any stars at all for service.

However, our assigned server was quite rude for almost the entire visit. The first 3 times she came to our table (once to “welcome” us, once to bring water and take our drink order, and once to take our food order), she spoke to us in a very condescending tone. We felt extremely uncomfortable for our entire meal. However, she was suddenly kind when handing me the check. Sorry, but that’s just too late for me.

Service: Adriana was excellent, although she might have been covering too many tables. We are pretty impatient, though, so that might have tainted her in our assessment of service.
Food: duck confit tacos. Very good but a bit expensive for two
Oysters: tasty but really small! Lamb: delicious but fatty and we had agreed to split so we each got one good bite. Halibut: the star of the show! So good we were sorry we didn't order two plates of it.
My husband had two margaritas and raved about how good they were (It was his 75th birthday but no bartender comped them for us like one reviewer below says happened to them.) They were $18 each.
Desserts we each had one, and loved what we got. Husband's $12 was complimentary.
Our bill with tax and tip was $180. That was less than we expected but for a really small amount of food.
Finally, the MENU. A disaster. There are platters meant to be shared (like the fried rockfish for $66). Then there are the small plates, which advertised "meant for sharing." No way. The portions were really small. The two tacos were also small. We had to ask what many things were because there were no translations. I felt sorry for the servers; they must spend half of their time explaining the illogical and confusing menu itself.
Overall, we enjoyed ourselves because it was a special occasion. We'd go again with lower expectations, I guess. The location on the waterfront is prime and the restaurant is beautiful PS If someone asked for advice, "I'd say get an order of two tacos for an appetizer and each order 2 plates--not to share.

Really delicious, they nailed the Latin vibe. Felt like we're on vacation in Mexico, but we took an uber! It was pretty pricey, but i would say the experience was worth it with the outdoor seating and perfect weather we had. Rockfish was sooooo good.

The place is beautiful, service is amazing and everyone was always cordial with us. Food is ok but I believe it's over-priced, portions are very VERY small and for the price, flavor isn't something extraordinary. But I still feel is a good place to come and have a good time.

A truly exceptional restaurant. World class. Drinks are expensive but worth it. I'm from the UK finally I relented & that is rare in restaurants these days. Most of my restaurant experiences post-pandemic have been slightly (or very) disappointing. Maximon was the exception.
