    My husband and I have driven pass Maxwell's many times since moving to Central Park North and finally decided to hit it up for brunch. We added our name to the waitlist prior to arriving because...it's brunch time in NYC. We were seated immediately upon arrival, because it was a lot slower than we expected so that was cool and all and the brunch menu looked great! After waiting 15 minutes not a single server came to our table. My husband got up and had to walk across the restaurant to the hostess to notify her no one had even stopped by-- because we literally couldn't get anyone's attention even though servers were sitting at the bar chatting with each other. After about another 5 minutes someone finally came by and took our order. The milk in my flat white was spoiled--just ew! The meal that came out for my husband was entirely different than what we ordered, and supposedly the breakfast skillet I ordered came with bacon...not a single piece was in sight. After I asked the waitress about it she said she had no idea and never came back to address it. All around for a cute little brunch spot this place doesn't leave anything to be desired. We were hoping for a go to spot and this just isn't it. Save your time money and energy and just don't go.

    The waitress was very nice. That/s about the only good thing I can say about this place. I ordered the fried chicken sandwich, and what I got was a tiny, greasy piece of re-heated chicken that was outsized by the lettuce and tomato. It was inedible. Absolutely disgusting. Avoid this place for dinner.

    Ordered the quesadilla. Didn't specify that it had tomatoes and guacamole on it anywhere on the menu. When asked for a new one without that was told it was pre-mixed. Service also very slow, only about 5 tables seatd when we went, service just terribly slow even with what looked to be about 4 to 5 serving/hosting

    There were far too many rules & restrictions on the unlimited brunch option. My friends and I were annoyed. We had to order before 2:30 when brunch is advertised until 4:00. We were not allowed to switch cocktails. We were told we could each order a cocktail & secretly mix and share with one another. When I later asked for new glasses I was told we couldn’t do that AFTER the server told me we could. They would not bring us new glasses. Thankfully the food was great but brunch in NYC should never be this difficult. I won’t return. We have thousands of options in this city that don’t come with a list of rules.

    I’m grateful to have a cool neighborhood bar/restaurant to go to where there’s most bodegas and or Chinese restaurants as the alternative. I grew up hear and it gives me a bit of a feel of downtown yet it’s a block away from my house.

    The most welcoming people. The bartender, whose name we didn’t get but we’ll call him Bruno (Hawaiian shirt + fedora) made the most wonderful experimental drinks. So delish. Our server was friendly and efficient. Food delish and arrived in timely fashion. The Greek salad: amazing. First indoor dining this year: lovely. Great vibes all around.

    They definitely were trying to get by with a smaller than ideal staff (who isn’t right now?), but both guys on the floor were very friendly when they had a chance to get to us. The food was very good and priced well. The rustic decor was kind of at odds with the high energy music. Felt a bit more like a bar than a restaurant. I’d recommend it under specific circumstances.

    Maxwell is cozy friendly and a great limited place to get out to during this pandemic. The food for brunch is delicious. Tge avacado toast great. The French toast is hot and soft however the second time around was a bit dry and over done. That would not deter me from going again and trying the burger.
