Our waitress was wonderful. The place was very crowded so food took a while to come. We told our waitress that we had to get to the theater, and she came through with flying colors.
Love the Matzo Ball Soup and Grandma's Honey chicken. It was really busy and the service was a bit off, however, our waiter was singing (amazingly) in between waiting on us. Had a really good time and tasty food.
Overall, Max's was better than usual. The SF Ballet crowd wasn't as large as usual, so the restaurant wasn't swampled. I use to go to Max's all the time before the ballet and stopped because the service and food degraded if the restaurant got crowded. This time I went early, 6 p.m., and the experience was pleasant.
We come from Seattle every year to support the "God Bless the USA" Fundraiser for Vet at the Herbst War Memorial. This year we had 14 & we thoroughly enjoyed the performance & dinner after at Max's Opera Cafe! Lovely that they accommodated our large group - the food was delicious, warm rolls, special prime rib w/ all the fixins, large fresh salads, fresh salmon & great menu selections & the help/service was great too! Especially enjoyed the singing & piano playing - will come again , won't wait till next year!
Best Matzo ball soup and a lovely singing waiter, great way to pregame before the ballet.
Always get a fine meal at Max’s. A family favorite forever
Good Deli Food...Reubens are excellent! Rivals anything on the East Coast!
The best burger I have tasted in a long time. I had the cheeseburger sliders. The taste was amazing. I could tell the beef was fresh and never frozen. Amazing
One of my favorites. I love the live music and that the staff are also performers in waiting
The portions are huge. Its an old school theater district deli style restaurant. Its close to the theaters and affordable. Its very casual but friendly. Servers are prompt so you can get in and out on time for the show!
