Another great Max restaurant! Creative seafood menu
We took my dad out who was visiting. The oysters were amazing and the craft cocktails were delicious. Great staff especially Carl our server. Will definitely go back.
Great service and great food.
As usual we had an excellent dining experience. The managing partner greeted us when we came in. The waitress remembered us and greeted us accordingly. Max's does it the right way. Other restaurants should follow their formula for success.
Bottom line the food and service was excellent.
Had a great time, food was awesome and our waitress Vicky was fantastic.
Elegant setting,great raw bar extremely busy but way too noisy for reasonable conversation levels .
Wonderful menu. A bit loud for anything romantic, but excellent food and service!
Ordinary food at high prices. It used to be better than that, but has gone down hill.
Everything was fine and I even had a free birthday entree.
Meals were excellent as always. Dined this time for a Special Occasion and the staff went above and beyond treating us wonderfully. Great job and a fantastic dinner.
We return because the food is good!
Calamari is some of the best!
Salads and entrees all very good
And we’re back again!
I always have a great time and great service at a Max restaurant.
For the amount of money that was spent on the bill, I would have expected the server to be a bit more enthusiastic about being there. The meal tasted catered, as if i chose the "steak and lobster" at a cousin's wedding. The $18/ additional lobster tail might have been the size of a jumbo shrimp. Pretty disappointed overall. I wouldn't have complained if the meal was half the price paid.
Great food and service! Thanks to Mark our server who was excellent! Very attentive and energetic without being overbearing. Food as always was terrific. Had the halibut special and the hot pot. Bread pudding dessert was delicious. Thank you for a wonderful evening!!
They went above and beyond to acknowledge our anniversary with complimentary wine toast, amuse bouche, and dessert! Our halibut entree was delicious! A lovely meal and evening!
Excellent food and service. Received an extra appetizer and champagne for our anniversary. Thanks.
Was in West Hartford and decided on Max's which was terrific. Great location and our server was great. Thank you.
The waiter was very friendly, courteous, attentive and accommodating. The food was excellent. A great experience overall.
What a great dinner we had!! Nathaniel, our server, was outstanding. Can't say enough great things about him. The food was spectacular. We had the lobster, the halibut, the seafood pot, the oysters, the tuna poke nachos, chowder and the crab cake. All fantastic! Thank you for a great dinner!
outstanding experience at Max oyster bar on a busy sat. night. our party of four was promptly seated at a gorgeous red leather booth as soon as we arrived. an extensive wine list and creative cocktails made ordering drinks easy. our appetizers and entrees were excellently prepared and delicious. the fact that our food was neither under-cooked or over-cooked nor too hot or too cold on such a busy night was truly impressive. Max's is a bit pricey but worth it if you're looking for a perfect dining experience.
Birthday celebration with great food.
Great service, fun atmosphere, coupled w an A plus meal (Mahi special) made for a memorable evening.
Great night celebrating a special birthday
Staff, service & food was great!
I’ve been dining at Max’s Oyster Bar since it opened in 1999. It remains the best seafood restaurant in the Hartford area, and the raw bar quality is as good as I’ve experienced anywhere. The quality of the food under the current Exec Chef is exceptional and probably better than any other time in the restaurant’s history.
Special meal for family member
As always, Max’s Oyster Bar (aka #MOB) didn’t dissapoint. The food is amazing, the raw bar is fresh and cold. The service was fantastic, not over the top. 👍👍
First time at brunch and it was fabulous!!
Max's is always a great meal and experience. This dinner was no exception. I would always recommend Max's Oyster Bar for any special occasion.
Max's is always a great choice. Food & service were outstanding. Only challenge, which is a good thing for the restaurant, is getting a reservation on a Saturday night. Try to make a reservation at least 7 days in advance.
The atmosphere and food was great!
Incredible food. Great service.
The only thing that brought it down a bit was some other folks near us were being awfully loud and obnoxious. It would have been great if they were told to keep it down.
Wonderful, high quality food - we had a tower of raw/poached seafood and an additional chilled platter at the suggestion of our server. Her recommendations were spot on and we had a wonderful time.
Amazing! Our waiter even brought me gluten free bread! It was really great overall.
Awesome. As always. My fav in W Hartford.
Fabulous as usual. Our favorite restaurant.
Amazing food. Beautiful night. Definitely coming back again
Great restaurant and great happy hour. They are prompt with their reservations. Some notable dishes are their tacos, the ceviche, the oysters, the paella, the truffle fries, and lobster.
Was a good experience, food was AMAZING and service was great. Drinks menu was very extensive and very tasty.
