We live in Avon and go to Max a Mia 2 or three times a year. The food is generally Italian. The food is excellent and the service is good. I have enjoyed pasta dishes along with meat based entrees. My wife really likes the stone pizzas which are offered in addition to the regular menu. Max a Mia is... More

The service, food and atmosphere at the Max chain restaurants are always consistently great. One of my favorites is Max a Mia in Avon. This restaurant has a great vibe. The servers are obviously well trained and are always accommodating. The outside dining in the summer is a nice alternative. Get the Tuscan Salad or the Fried Calamari. And whatever... More

Love everything about this restaurant! Upscale but relaxed setting, amazing food, great service, fair prices for what you get. Specialty cocktails, great wine list, just wish they had more beer on tap. Can be busy so reservations needed for popular times. My wife and I split the Tuscan salad and it was delicious. Then she had eggplant lasagna - rediculous!... More

Always love a good meal at Max a Mia. The bar is fun, and the food is creative. Service is great. The ambiance is nice, but on the louder side. I like being able to see the kitchen. Never a bad meal.

I had lunch recently with a friend at Max a Mia. Our waiter was very good, knowledgeable and helpful. My friend had a hard time deciding what to order, but I. The end chose a hamburger. She had very specific wants and he took care of it for her. I had a delicious Tuscan Salad. It was the perfect size... More

Went for dinner (had reservations) with a group on a weekend night. The place had a nice vibe to it upon entry so it appeared we were in for a great evening. The waitstaff was very good. However, we were not ultimately impressed with the pricing or food. Three appetizers were tried: the portions were on the small to average... More

I'm not sure what all the hype is. It has improved since I went the only other time, years ago. Then, they had boxes of Barilla pasta stacked up like a decoration. I had to pay $15 for Barilla cooked with some wilted greens and I didn't come back until friends wanted to dine here this week. Now, in addition... More

While chefs have come and gone, the stalwart restaurant continues to serve creative and exciting meals from the Insalata Della Casa, Stone Pies, Pasta and Oak Grilled Salmon. Perfect for family, business lunches, and dinners.

The "Max" restaurant chain in always a good choice. Service is good, food choice good. pricing appropriate for meals offered. We enjoyed this popular restaurant although a bit noisy for our tastes. Atmosphere attractive. Although we prefer other of the Max restaurants, this serves a good niche in an affluent suburban town.
