Service was excellent!
After some initial confusion as to whether they had my reservation (that I booked through Open Table), we were seated promptly in the outdoor area. The service was attentive, but not as polished as I would have expected from an upscale place. The food was very good. A little on the spicy side, but that was expected. I did ask for salt because I thought the short ribs needed a little more. They brought a small dish and spoon for me. The wine/bar prices were a little on the high side. The cocktail I had was well made. The list of wines by the glass was very short - about one option for each variety. I've eaten here before and this visit was consistent with prior visits.
Great place - GO!
They are following all of the safe protocols!
This restaurant is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Consistently great dishes (don't ever forego the halibut preparations!) and some of the best cocktails, Max's is a great place to meet friends, host business dinners, or have a date night experience. The service is excellent and the staff is warm and attentive. The Trio of Fries is their signature appetizer and I personally recommend the Max's Mule cocktail. They also have an excellent wine list and great by the glass selections. This restaurant should be on everybody's "don't miss" list.
Dinner in middle of COVID-19 25% restriction capacity. Food was good.....indoor dinning. Way better than the alternative (restaurants closed).
Lovely atmosphere, attentive service and delicious specialty options.
We had Birthday Dinner with Family and friends, they did an Amazing job with quality and presentation of food
Our waitress was rude. When we asked where our dessert was she said “I didn’t know you were on a time frame”. That was so out of line. She said the pie takes 12 minutes to bake. We waited 30. She should have had the pie start baking when we were almost finished with lunch.
The petite filet and Brussels sprouts with bacon are amazing! I will be coming back for this meal.
I got the shrimp and grits and it had no flavor whatsoever and the grits tasted like chalk. I was very disappointed
Lunch was impeccable,well flavored French Dip meat with awesome roll, friend had a huge hamburger he said it was awesome, service was great ..
The food and drinks were very good and the service was excellent. Of course at this time its outside seating but it was well laid out. Its prices are on the high end but you get great food and service so in my opinion it was well worth it and I will be going back. Jeff.
Really enjoyed our dining experience at Max’s. Their food is always exceptional! They seems slightly understaffed as the service was not as prompt. Our drinks seemed to be taking longer than usual. The filet was exceptional, as always. Otherwise, the whole experience was a nice break from eating at home!
Great food and service!
The staff was awesome
We were their last table and they didn't mind our late hour reservation
A must try!
Great food and service
Always enjoy Maxs for dinner. Megan was an outstanding server and everyone is friendly and ambiance is nice. The Maxs burger is a favorite and the special which was pasta was excellent. Would always recommend Maxs for a great dining experience.
Great as always! Jordan is exceptional as always!
Great time. Food was excellent, service couldn’t have been better and they have done things to make you feel safe during the pandemic. Can’t wait for our next visit!
Very good food and the service could have been a little faster for the amount of people they had and the reduced capacity.
One of the best dining experiences in town - bar none.
The cuisine is always delicious. I have never had a bad dining experience.
Good to get back there and dine. New items on lunch menu well worth trying. Great social distancing with their tables, and as expected the service still at the same high standard.
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Food and service are great!
Love love love this place. Great food. Best drinks in town. Fantastic service.
The service was spectacular and so was the ambience. The vegetarian option could have been better but the steak was perfectly cooked.
Maxs is set up perfectly for the Covid dining Experience. We were more than 6 feet from other patrons which kept the noise level quiet. All staff had on their protective gear. Our waitress Ezzy was fabulous!! And the food and wine was outstanding. It was great to dine in a restaurant again- I’m glad we chose Max’s
Fabulous after COVID-19 lockdowns. Get out there and enjoy people!
Max always delivers an amazing meal! And the service is top-notch. Love the wine list too.
Wonderful dinner at Max's!! While other restaurants are not attempting to comply with Covid-19 restrictions, Max's is doing it right. No crowded bar, and the tables were spaced accordingly.
Top it off with a fine meal, and it was a great experience!
This was our first dinner out post-lockdown and we had a wonderful time! Our server Megan was super friendly and attentive. The food was delish as always.
My friend and I really appreciated the restaurant’s adherence to anti-Covid19 practices: social distancing, keeping everything clean/sanitized, and providing a hand sanitizer on every table. We felt safe eating at Max’s Bistro and will go back.
So glad they are back serving lunch and dinner. We had a great time celebrating our son's high school graduation there. The food and service were great!
Food is always good here even though it is very pricey
Breaded Calamari steak on the hard side!!
Max's never disappoints - wonderful atmosphere, great service, and always delicious food! One of my top five places to take friends for a special evening and delicious meal!
Sat in the patio. Loud.
Great environment. Great food. Great service. Overall I would definitely go back.
We had delicious food and the atmosphere was perfect for a good visit. Service was very attentive.
The server was so very kind to allow us to have a seat before our reservation time. She was polite, helpful and the food was very good. I had never visited the restaurant before and was SO PLEASED that the ambiance was superb and the decore upscale and modern for my son's birthday. Thank you so much.
