Excellent experience. I was in town with a friend and made the reservation. Everything was great.
Thanks for the amazing review, Marvin! I'm so glad to hear you had a great time with us! We hope to see you again.
We had a wonderful dinner meal for our family of four! Our teenagers enjoyed the food and atmosphere just as much as the adults. I would highly recommend this restaurant without reservation.
Thank you for the awesome review! I'm happy to hear you and your family had such a wonderful time with us and enjoyed the food. We hope to have you back soon!
Have never been disappointed at Max's. If you like mussels they offer them in a delicious and unique Basque red pepper sauce. So good. No complaints from our table. Recommend.
Thanks for the amazing review! I love our mussels too!
I guess management is forcing servers and hosts to wear two masks. This is ridiculous and scientifically unsupported. Maybe they're going for a "double" virtue signal, but the message is sends is that this restaurant believes in superstition instead of hygiene. It's abusive to employees to make them struggle to breathe through two masks while hauling trays of food up and down stairs. These are not the actions of rational people.
Okay, not great. Bit pricey for food received.
We have thoroughly loved our experience at Max's every time we go. They are warm, welcoming and very friendly. Their drinks, food and wine are outstanding. The servers and management are very knowledgeable and go the extra distance to make the experience 2nd to none.
We can't say enough about everything here - from the valet to the kitchen to service and management - it's all the best you can expect!
Thanks for such an amazing review! I'm so happy to hear that you always have such a good time with us! I'll be sure to let our staff know to keep up with the great work!
Wonderful from beginning to end! Seated right away, very attentive but not overbearing waiter, delicious appetizers, entrees and the chocolate bread pudding was out of this world.
Thanks for the wonderful review! I'm so happy you had such a great dining experience with us! I love the chocolate bread pudding too!
The atmosphere at the restaurant is nice - casual and comfortable. Our server was a nice guy, but appeared to be new. He forgot multiple things and brought the check before the meal had concluded (we had not been offered coffee or desert, which we wanted.) The food was overall pretty good, with some unimpressive elements. The French onion soup was very good. The escargot was mediocre, lacking flavor and served with little/no sauce. The ribeye was very thin and average. The short ribs were cooked perfectly, but over-sauced with the sauce being too rich and overpowering. One of our daughters had the steak sliders and loved them. Our other daughter had the filet, which was slightly over cooked and dry. The deserts were all amazing. We had chocolate pound cake, strawberry shortcake, apple cake and creme brûlée - all of which we would strongly recommend. We drove down from Fredericksburg for the meal and would not likely make the trip again.
A beautiful experience. The best Valentine’s Day dinner I’ve ever had. The service was lovely and the steaks were top-notch. I look forward to going back!
Thanks for the wonderful review and I'm glad you had great Valentine's day with us!
The service is was hit me the most. Our server was so nice and very helpful with suggestions. We were sitting right by a speaker and it wasn't an issue of being too loud at all. Definitely a great place for occasions. Will definitely return!
Thanks for the awesome review, Daniel! We pride ourselves on being hospitable. Happy your server was so great!
very cool place with great food at reasonable price
Thanks for the review, Ellie!
Being Valentine's Day, this could have been a mob scene. Don't know if it was Covid, or the ice storm, or some combination, but it was a very pleasing lunch without feeling crowded or rushed. We weren't celebrating the holiday -- my friend and I had theatre tickets that afternoon.
I had been here before for pre-theatre dinner, but never for brunch and never for a holiday. zIt was my co-diners first visit and she was very pleased with everything. The selection on the menu was nice and varied. We each had aps, an entree each and split the dessert. It was plenty of food and the total bill plus a generous gratuity for the server was under what we were expecting to spend.
Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable, and willing to go that extra mile when my co-diner made requests. I wish I remembered her name, but I got to the table a bit later and she had probably already introduced herself to my co-diner.
Definitely get the chocolate bread pudding for dessert. It's a great way to end a great meal!
Thank you for such a wonderful review. I'm so happy to hear that you and co-diner had such a pleasant time with us and that your server was so accommodating. We hope to have you back soon. Also, I absolutely love our chocolate bread pudding!
I took my wife here for Valentines Day, and we enjoyed it very much!! The ambiance was great, and the food was delicious. The service was awesome from the time we entered the door until we left. This was my first going but my wife’s second time. We will definitely be going back.
Thanks for the awesome review! It makes me so happy to hear that you and your wife enjoyed your Valentine's Day and that everything from service to your meals were perfect. We hope to see you all back!
I requested a quiet corner table for my husband’s birthday dinner and they totally came through with the sweetest table in a back corner upstairs. The lighting and ambiance was perfect. The crab cakes were some of the best I’ve ever had and the brussel sprouts were delicious! Looking forward to the next time!
Great Place! Will be going back!!! Was a perfect restaurant for an Anniversary Dinner.
Thanks for the great review, Brooke! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful Anniversary dinner! We hope to see you all again soon!
Superb! Morgan was an exceptional server.
Thanks for the wonderful review! We'll let Morgan know to keep up the great work!
Everything was wonderful, we truly enjoyed the food. The icing on the cake was when the manager called me to inquire about our reservation prior to arrival and ensured our party seating was set up and ready to go when we arrived. Our Waitress Catherine was superb.
Thanks for the amazing review, Karen! I'm so glad your son's graduation celebration went so well and that Catherine was so hospitable! We love to see our guests happy!
Great atmosphere and ambiance
Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed it.
They were amazing with gluten free options as I am celiac
Thanks for the great review, Danielle! I'm so glad we were able to accommodate you!
Great atmosphere. Very friendly service and an excellent meal. We were very pleased.
Thanks for the wonderful review, Liz! I'm so glad you had such a pleasant dining experience with us! We can't wait to have you back!
We really enjoyed the escargot and the scallops. Highly recommend asking for bread when you get the escargot because the toast that comes with the escargot does not stop up the delicious garlic butter.
Thanks for the amazing review! The garlic butter sauce is to die for!
Thanks for the review, Karen! I love our drink menu!
The staff were welcoming and friendly. Multiple people came to my table to make sure I had everything I needed. The guests were well spaced out. Food was delicious!
Thanks for the amazing review, Courtney! We pride ourselves on good service and good food!
Great scene. The baked oysters were so good.
I love the baked oysters too!
A perfect evening! The food, service, and ambience we’re all as anticipated and experienced. We started with oysters on the half shell, escargot, I had the duck and my date had the fillet mignon with crab meat topped with blue cheese sauce. Everything was prepared perfectly. We definitely will return soon!
Thanks for the wonderful review! I love the duck, and the filet-delicious! We can't wait to have you back!
Odered the mushroom risotto. It was so bad that neither of us could eat it. Very salty!!! Ambiance and service was amazing though.
I'm so sorry to hear your risotto was so salty! We've been trying to perfect the recipe lately and I'm so sorry you got such a bad batch! I do hope you come back and and give it another chance.
Very good food but the wait staff needs a lot more training.
Thanks for the review, Andrew! I'm glad you enjoyed the food. Could you elaborate more on the service? Thanks!
Max's on Broad is always on point. We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner there, feeling safe as the staff were all masked and the restaurant was being cleaned appropriately between seating diners. The food was wonderful and the ambiance, even with covid precautions was great. The closest we are going to get to a dinner in Paris at the moment!
Thanks for the wonderful review, Bridget! I'm so glad we could make your anniversary so amazing! Our staff and guests' health and safety mean so much to us. I'm glad you felt so safe with us. We can't wait for you to join us again!
What a lovely spot in downtown Richmond to enjoy delicious French cuisine in an upbeat setting. The Escargots was outstanding and we paired it with the house Blanc de Blanc extra dry sparkling white wine. We sopped up every last bite of the delicious escargots garlic butter with the toasted crostini's and warm baked bread. We shared two Entrees: the catch of the day Mahi Mahi prepared "Waterzooi" served with lump crab in a lobster Brandy cream sauce which was exquisite and the Truffle Mac which was gourmet comfort food at it's best. Needless to say we did not leave a bite of anything on our plates. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. We will definitely return and look forward to sampling more savory meals at Max's on Broad.
Thanks for the amazing review! I'm so glad you enjoyed your dining experience with us! All of your food choices were great choices! I love our Waterzooi! It's super popular. We can't wait for you to join us again.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Max’s this year. Neither of us had been before and it was a great first. Overall, we had a very nice & memorable experience. It is a beautiful restaurant. Amazing interior of wood scaffolding, multiple levels of dining and tasteful decorating and artwork, not gaudy or pretentious. First song we heard at dinner was Phil Collins, which was a fun juxtaposition to the fancy setting. Fine dining without the fluff. All staff were very pleasant and did a good job of serving us without hovering, as my wife and I were in the mood to be with one another, not make new friends. The food was delicious, not too rich, just all around creative, upgraded spins on what you would normally expect. I also noticed that the menu was relatable, not filled with ostentatious meals I don’t recognize or wouldn’t eat if dared. The apple pie was absolutely the best I have ever had in my life and I am not exaggerating. We look forward to returning soon! I hope the many good restaurants like this in Richmond make it in the final months of this pandemic.
Thanks for the great review, Mark! I'm so happy to hear you had such a great time with us and enjoyed your meals. I love the apple pie too! We most definitely can't wait to have you back!
French onion soup was rich and delicious, service was stellar
Thanks for the great review, Timber! I adore our French Onion Soup. The wonderful service makes it that much better!
Steak frites exceptional
I love the steak frites, too!
Staff was amazing. Allison was our waitress and she was wonderful!
Thanks for the review! I'll be sure to let Allison know to keep up the great work!
We had a nice evening celebrating. NYE
Thanks for the wonderful review, Michelle and I'm so glad you had such a great NYE with us.
Food was good overall; the duck breast was fantastic. Wish I had ordered something other than the short rib for myself (It was good just not great like the duck breast). Service was ok; our server was friendly just not overly responsive.
Thanks for the review, Joe! I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your short rib as much as your duck, but I totally understand. The duck is amazing!
Amazing dinner! The food was exquisite. Would definitely recommend.
Thanks for the amazing review, Cynthia!
We shared a variety of appetizers during our dinner. The fried oysters were truly amazing! Roasted cauliflower, escargot, and strawberry salad were also good. I enjoyed a mocktail that our server recommended. I love that Max’s has options for mocktails. Some restaurants are really not prepared with a list or suggestions from their servers. As a pregnant foodie I love a restaurant who can make great beverages. At the end of the dinner I mentioned to our server that I loved the decaf coffee she served. She ended up giving me a small bag to take home and I thought that was such a nice touch! The coffee was served with a delicious chocolate bread pudding. Overall we always have a great meal here!
Great place to go for a socially distanced New Years Eve dinner.
Thanks for the review! Glad you had a good time.
Came back after 4 years and didn’t disappoint. Food was great. Setting is lovely and cozy. Very clean and safe. Staff is great.
Thanks for the awesome review! I'm glad we still impressed you after all this time!
