    We were satisfied customers before the pandemic. This was our first visit since. Very disappointing. Took 15 mins+ to get drinks from the bar. Martinis were served in glassware more appropriate for sherry or port. Server told us about the Wed special which was beef wellington. Shame on us for not asking how much it cost. $70 seemed over the top as nothing was included like a salad or dessert. $70 per person should be a meal price not just an entree. The duck wings were like scrawny chicken wings unlike ones we've had at another restaurant that had them as a specialty. The wine list favored wines in the $60+ category. Would not consider this a go to weeknight restaurant when there are so many other restaurants on Chestnut St.

    Maybeck's is an absolute gem with its neighborhood feel, outstanding food, inspired wine list, and stellar service. The California cuisine with a Japanese flair is excellent from start to finish. There are also numerous gluten free options, which is enormously appreciated. The chefs/owners, somm, and servers are warm, knowledgeable, and perfectly attentive. Can't recommend Maybeck's more highly for everyday dining, special occasions, date night, or girls night dinner. It's simply amazing.

    The carrot cake ice cream was the best flavor I have ever had! It was simply life changing. Large chunks of carrot cake were evenly distributed with icing to make a perfect ice cream representation of my favorite cake. Such a lovely ending to a solid meal. Staff was kind, professional, and attentive. The cocktails were creative and delicious- Borealis, brown-butter old fashioned, and one with Earl grey alcohol. The monkey bread was divine. I would go back just to try the rest of the creative ice cream flavors like amaretto cherry, root beer white chocolate chunk, and green apple sorbet!

    Excellent meals by all four. Duck, filet, lamb. Wine was excellent and it would have been nice to have a sommelier advise us. The waiter didn’t really know the wines and could have offered to call over a sommelier. Not sure if you have one.

    Had high expectations for this place- it was great under the old name Spaghetti Brothers. The menu was entirely different and not exciting. Sauce for the oysters tasted like soy sauce and didn’t compliment the oysters at all. Entrees were really expensive and not good at all - unseasoned and small. Classic Cocktails were done well, but the specialty cocktails were not good. Waiter was not able to give us any suggestions when we asked for vine recommendations and oysters. Overall really disappointing for how expensive it was.

    First, the service: you can tell they work as a team and feel like a family. They are willing to go out of their way to please you. Next, the food and drink: wow, everything tastes incredible and is not overwhelming. The flavors are subtle and unique. Try the gnudi, grilled avacado, filet, and definitely keep room for dessert. Last but not least, be sure to have a cocktail by Brian, the bartender. His mixology skills rock!

    Maybeck’s used to have high quality food and good prices . No more. The prices have gone up and the food has gone down. The hamachi crudo used to be fresh, lightly seasoned, reasonably priced ($6) and fun to eat. Now it is a lump of tasteless fish served on a pile of rice — for $26. The entrees are equally expensive and equally boring.

    Maybeck'sResponded on December 6, 2022We apologize the we were unable to meet your expectations. After a year and a half closure, we had to make difficult decisions on the new direction of the restaurant and menu. We are working constantly to improve and feedback like yours only pushes us harder. Please reach out if you choose to dine with us again so we can make ensure your next visit is more pleasant.

    I'm disappointed to discover that Maybeck's former main dining room is now apparently primarily reserved for private parties. The front room is not cosy, but the rear main room was. I know the restaurant trade is a difficult one, and owners must manage their business prudently, but for me being seated in the front area diminished the experience. Formerly I would invite friends for formal dinners there. Given the new more casual ambiance and more crowded seating, I won't be going that anymore. This is casual dining. Fine, but different. I wish the restaurant team well, but this change - albeit probably necessary - is nonetheless disappointing to me. I'll recommend Maybeck's, but with this caveat.
