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.

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...

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.
