My favorite restaurant in the city, the best food and the best service.
Maxwell's is my favorite place! Service is always friendly and knowledgeable. The food is wonderful, and the atmosphere is lovely. <3
We enjoy the imagination that goes into Maxwell's menu, and each of our choices was well-received (not a crumb left on our plate). I believe the recipe for Chicken-Leek pie could easily be sold to anyone who had tried it; the Chocolate Espresso Eclair was delectable.
As good as the food was, the evening made it into the "very special" category thanks to our waitress, who was so personable and welcoming while being a first-class professional (it's so nice to dine when your server is as knowledgeable as this).
The service was excellent, and the food interesting. I felt that the base of the fish and chips, the curried sweet potato patties should have been warmer. An extensive list of wines by the glass,which makes a nice change.
Amazing food. The chef certainly knows how to cook scallops. It was by far the best scallops I've had in a restaurant, browned on the outside and opaque inside.
Great local concept. I find that they do a particularly good job on their fish. Excellent service.
Would not recommend or return
Maxwell's was good---as usual/ Using Open table was NOT. We came and they had no idea that we had made a reservation through OpenTable (even though that reservation option sent us numerous reminders about the reservation time)
Overall great experience dining here for the first time. The service, food and overall atmosphere were enjoyable. Glad we discovered it during our visit to Fredericton!
Great service and food
Excellent meal & Service
One of the nicest dining experiences in Fredericton. The food was well prepared and presented. Excellent service.
The restaurant itself was beautiful in terms of decor, etc. But the food left something to be desired. My food was cold and lacked flavor. The place was loud due to a large group of people. The fire alarm started beeping quite loudly and it took the staff awhile to fix it. My drink was good.
Unfortunately we are required to have a fire alarm by law to alert us if there is a fire and we can't simply switch it off.
We had an excellent dinner, well prepared and well presented. Service was excellent and not intrusive. One hiccup was our online reservation. They didn’t get it even though we had a confirmation email. It might have been an issue if they were busy. A pleasant evening to celebrate our anniversary.
The food and service at this restaurant are consistently great. The best restaurant in the city. And the atmosphere is great. The renos have really modernized the space. It’s beautiful. I highly recommend trying this place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Maxwells. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The waitress Anichka was very pleasant and friendly. We loved the oysters and the burger! We will be back for sure!
Very friendly staff, lovely spot. Pricing was pretty standard for a hotel restaurant. The menu was different than what the app had, but still a few vegan options. They offered delicious biscuits while we waited, and the cheese platter and dessert were fantastic. Beautiful presentation as well! The keylime pie was the best I've ever had!
I have always liked eating at Crowne Plaza restaurant. Service is always impeccable. However last time food was just ok (which is unusual experience for this place). I had gnocchi with short rib, and to my disappointment there was hardly any meat to be found other than some gristle pieces. My husband had a burger, it was good but not as good as it used to be a few months back. What has changed? Anyhow, I believe we will be back as we love the place. I hope the shortcomings were just a temporary glitch :)
Went to try the Dine around Freddy event. When we received the menu it was not what was online. Waitress advised they changed it Thursday so it didn't match the meals that had made us make a reservation and choose this restaurant. The choices were not great. Of the 4 of us no one overly enjoyed their meal. What was served as Paella was definitely not like anything anyone had ever tried. It was horrible and my friend ate less than a third of the meal. Very disappointed.
We went before a show at the Playhouse and got an unexpected discount when we mentioned we were going to a show. Staff were great, very helpful and friendly. Knew the menu well. Excellent food, good variety on the menu. I had haddock on paella and my husband had a pork dish. We will go back.
We went there for a meal before going to the Playhouse. Setver kept this in mind so we had time to relax yet know we would not be rushed to get there. Food was very good... most had Dine around Freddy menu however one ordered off the menu and his meal was good!!! We will be back!!! Lisa, our server, was excellent!!!
I ordered the local salmon, which was excellent. However, the mussels were so over cooked, I couldn’t eat them. I did mention this to our waiter. Our party of 5 did enjoy their meals and the atmosphere. Love the new ambiance.
Atmosphere and service was good. Location is good. I would like to see an improved menu by adding more local preferences like beef and this would attract more local regular clientele.
Excellent service and delicious food. Classy restaurant.
Our waitress Theresa was simply amazing!!!
Thank you for exceptional service!
So lovely, can't wait to return and try the burger ;)
We took our parents to Maxwell's for their anniversary. All in all, a really good experience. The service was good, not outstanding. Two of us ordered the Roasted Vegetable Salad but only once of us received it and the other had to remind our server after a few minutes. That being said, it was delicious. For our meals, we all ordered something different and all were good but the pork chop and the lamb were standouts! The portions were generous, not what you'd typically expect at a finer establishment. Also, their cocktails are very inventive and feature house-grown herbs!
