We celebrated my Mother’s birthday and the experience was terrific!
Thank you once again for another excellent meal.
The food is delicious with a lot of choices. I love the seasonings, presentation and the sea salt cream brulee was outstanding!!
Eat here often, food was delicious...from the calamari appetizer, the grilled chicken club sandwich, the turkey avocado sandwich, to the sweet potato fries. Service, not so much....our server spent more time talking with the other servers than she did waiting on us. First she forgot to bring salt, we had to get up and get it, then re-filled regular tea with flavored tea, finally, tried to take a plate while we were still eating...became unpleasant after the salt incident. After all of this....this is still one of my favorite places to eat, and we will go back.
Waiter didnt to come back to us after food was served. We didn’t have all of our utensils, ground pepper and lemon. We had to ask other waiters to help us. They gave me pepper in a bottle. Don’t you have fresh ground pepper?
Though the food tasted good, the food prices were very expensive which will prevent me from going to this restaurant more than once a year, if that. I reviewed the menu and the food prices on the restaurant website the same day we went to the restaurant. I was surprised to find that, when our menus were provided to us, many of the prices were higher than what was shown on the restaurant website. When I brought this to the attention of the manager, he said he was surprised to hear that because they had just recently updated their website. Obviously this was not true.
The menu was limited, unique and tasty. For the picky eaters, when all else fails, there’s a burger on the menu!
Our waitress was wonderful and my salmon salad was delicious.
Great food. Highly recommend the ahi tuna tostada. Our waiter Benson, was the perfect waiter, unobtrusively attentive and knowledgeable, making recommendations for guests in our party based on their preferences.
Always delicious with excellent service!!! My family and I love dining here!!
Was amazing my seat just kept hitting the table next to me. But honestly overall it was soo good. The flavor of the food, the atmosphere, the server.
Did Not expect my reservation would put us in the back corner next to a family with fun/loud kids. Plenty of tables for 2 in main dinning area, guess I needed to tip the hostess next time.
Amazing service and Food! Never had to ask for a refill on my beverage, or for anything really. Great service!!! And even better food
Wonderful! Went here for Valentines Day and were blown away by the service and the quality of everything. From the bread through desert was impeccable. Thanks for a wonderful evening.
Josh was great. Thanks for a fantastic experience.
We are frequent flyers here, always a positive experience, even this time when I got the wrong entree. Still good, ate it anyway. Will get what I originally ordered, next time we are there...
The food was amazing...it our first time there and we enjoyed our experience. The waitstaff was great, Bianca made it extra enjoyable with her great service and pleasant personality. We will definitely be back.
Great server and great food and atmosphere. Highly recommend
Great Place!! My friends never been before I reserved a table for the evening. Everyone was so delighted😉
I must preface this review with the fact that it was Valentines day and they were busy as we sat at 6:30p. Our Server was outstanding. Starters.....
The Romaine Wedge salad was excellent. Bread is quite good. Calamari was good with the very tasty Aioli's provided. The Calamari plating was ok, but the appearance of the Calamari tubes was very pale, almost anemic, without any color.
Wife..Brick Chicken $28 ; Barely warm, a bit dry and did not expect Thigh meat as part of portion.
Broccolini, Red Pepper Coulis and Arugula Pesto were very good. Gnocchi was over fried.
Myself..New York Steak $45 ; I have not had a good steak in a while, and its going to be longer.
My Med-Rare order was a good Med. Aged for 45 days may have been a misprint, not an easy one to slice, maybe my knife was dull.. This Entree' was absolutely flavorless except for the bold flavor of burnt meat from the Grill's Char. I do LOVE the flavor of the markings on a steak, but this was over and beyond, deep burnt scars.
In defense of the Server, he heard our concerns and was was going to have the meals made again. We declined, were offered dessert on the house and also declined. We did not ask to be comped for any of it. He was tipped well.
This was my first and most likely last visit to Max's
This is the Best Neighbor Gem Fresno. Great service and fantastic people every time. Max's is Family.
Ezzy is one of the best servers I have ever had. She made the entire special evening even more special. My wife and I had a wonderful meal for Valentine's Day at Max's. We started with the fries trio of sweet potato, truffle, and eggplant fries. My favorite was the eggplant and it was the first time I've had an eggplant preparation that I really liked. We shared a wonderful lobster bisque and then each ordered the surf and turf. It was a 6 oz filet mignon and a 6 oz lobster tail that were both expertly prepared. I really wanted to try dessert but we were stuffed from dinner and our daughter had made a special dessert at home so we passed. All in all it was a near perfect evening. An expensive evening but we had zero complaints. We will be back to try other things on an exciting menu. Thanks Max's Bistro and Ezzy for a truly special evening.
We dine at Max’s often. Our experience this time was not very good. Nobody came around and asked if we would like a refill on our water, our food was served but we had to wait at least 10 minutes to get a steak knife to begin eating, and our bill was brought before we were even asked if we would like dessert. It’s tome we start looking for our next go to restaurant. I’m so disappointed.
Very good food and very nice service. Will be back
The hostess was pleasant and wonderful. Our server Ivana was a joy.
It was my birthday dinner and it was splendid and very yummy!!! I haven’t had duck as good since Houston. Thank you for making my birthday special!
Overall quality meal
Max's is a neighborhood gem. The food is always fresh and excellent.
really nice, wonderful service was a little loud because it was packed other than that we loved our first experience and will absolutely be back!
It just not the same as it once was. I'm giving the restaurant three out of five based on my experience not the entire table of guests. I ordered the Wellington vegan dish. It was boring and bland and the side of cauliflower was awful. I can cook better than this at home. Sorry but I just didn't enjoy the meal at all. The service, however, was excellent and our server Amanda was pleasant and did a great job. The noise level was very high and made it difficult to chat across the table.
The restaurant was short staffed and we were seated next to a loud table of Trump supporters, but hey, the food was great as usual!
A little too noise for our jars of hearing older guests. Swordfish was excellent t as were salads.
My food was consistently wonderful. Same great meal as all of the other visits. I will be a continued customer.
I love this place and it never fails to disappoint. The service is great, the food incredible, and the atmosphere not too loud.
Had a wonderful meal. Good drinks, great food and we'll-curated group of wines by the glass. I'll be back.
Very slow service. Food average. The cauliflower appetizer was disgusting. Over ten minutes to get the beer and server had to be asked after ten minutes. Place is really busy so I guess people think it is good....
I had this place on our list 'to try'. It was a bit further west than expected but well worth the drive. It was a bit noisy but they were able to satisfy our request for a quiet area in their small, side room toward the back. The food was good. Service was exceptional.
The facility was cold we wore jackets. Steak and cesare salad good, specials unappetizing taste and look. Service little slow. Didn't recognize a birthday celebration. Not exciting like I anticipated.
Great food, great Service
Neither entree was special in any way, un-inspired. Even the bread was sub par. Not our usual experience at this restaurant.
