It’s a reason why I come back time and time again. The food is great as well as the wine selection . If you haven’t already you must try their house Spanish white wine, it’s amazing !!

This place is awesome! The chicken is my favorite because it’s full of flavor and juicy! Next would be the meatloaf! You just have to go to believe! Not a big fan of bitter wine and that’s really all they have but for those who doesn’t like sweet wine, here’s your place!

Our service was excellent; the food was to die for. Great menu for snacks/apps/small bites, especially during happy hour.

So glad we chose Max's to spend pre-Justin Timberlake concert - thank you!!

I was very disappointed when I arrived on January 20 and was told I have no reservations. So I pulled out my phone and let the hostess view my reservations. I was meeting a client and I am glad that I arrived early so my client wouldn't have seen the expression on my face. Get it together, whoever dropped the ball on my reservations.

We sat at a hightop which was not comfortable. The place was too crowded and the food was so-so. I had to ask for butter for my waffle. The chicken crust is very good, but my breast was dry.

We were a group of 4 ladies looking for a convenient spot to meet for brunch. Our service was good, the food was different and very tasty . The crispy deviled eggs were unique and spicy--fun new food. My friend had Max's Mac and Cheese with chicken tenders and found it delicious. The Southwest Skillet was another new tasty dish that we enjoyed. The home fries were well-seasoned and cooked to perfection. Tried the grapefruit Mimosa and found a new favorite! Overall a super experience!

The food does not taste the same. The Mac and cheese is different and the batter for the lobster has changed. I suggest going back to the original recipe ... Every one that i dined with wasn’t impressed with their food. We use to frequent this place often years ago

The food was very good and reasonable for the area, and the service was good, but wines are very overpriced for the offerings on their list- I’m used to restaurant wine markups but only discounting a few hour wines during happy hour puts Max’s Prices out of line with other restaurants in the Washington/Heights area.

Will not return - too many other great options.

The avocado and crab toast was not that good and I love avocado toast. We paid $24 each qnd tjere where 3 thin slices of avocado with less than 4 ounces of crab meat. I introduced this restaurant to my friend today and raved about it........not a good first impression for her. Those fries deviled eggs were good. Though.

Very disappointed in this location of Max's. Arrive for dinner for the ONE thing this place is know for - the Fried Chicken. We placed our order then the server came back ( much later ) and told us they are out of the Chicken!!! For real!!! How do you run out of the one thing you are known for at 7 pm? ADDITIONALLY, the server was too busy on her cell phone to be attentive to our drink refills - etc. Overall very disappointed.
