I was not happy that the Houston Restaurants Week menu includes only half portions of the appetizer and dessert. It’s barely a good value with whole portions. It’s just a scam to not list on the menu you are giving half portions. It’s actually more expensive with the HRW menu. Also, the wine list gives no details on the wine, and the waitress was not helpful at all. I have been going to Max’s for many years and have always loved this place, but will NEVER go back since they are taking advantage of the Houston Restaurants Week menu and not stating the half portions when ordering.

There were 6 of us in our party. And 5 out of the 6 had to send their meals back because it was cold, under cooked, or just inedible. We enjoyed the atmosphere and our waiter was awesome. Would try sgain

It started rough at first, but they were able to recover. We got there and was seated for almost 10 minutes and no waitress. When we made the problem known, the situation was fixed immediately.

Do not go to the Max’s on Washington St the food was under cooked and my order was completely wrong do to the fact our waitress attempted to take our order by memory versus writing down like I asked her.

They didn’t honor what we requested on Open table, sent us to an unsanitized high top table, and also had a menu issue. Management said they don’t control what’s put on Open table and they aren’t about to lose money by letting us sit at the “non” high top table that we requested.

We went for Mother’s Day (except actually on Saturday). We made reservations. They only had 5-6 tables available for seating inside. Two tables on the patio/sidewalk out front. Service was excellent. And the food was amazing as always. Really enjoyed it. Not rushed. It was quiet. They cleaned tables as people left. They had on masks and gloves. You could get plasticware in request.
