We had a New Years' Eve dinner here and it is a very upscale restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff was very helpful.

The food was delicious. The Sesame Crusted Tuna with Soba Noodles and Vegetables on the side was one of the best meals I ever had. My partner ordered... More

Great place. Nice size, not too small. Good bar area. I had a 22oz Bone In Ribeye and it was perfect. Ate at the bar, enjoyed well mixed cocktails. Really nice Cesar salad as well.

Steak is their specialty and we both ordered it and weren't disappointed Both steaks were tender and juicy and good portion. Vegetable side was delicious. My only complaint about the place is...

The interior is beautiful, very tastefully done with a Restoration Hardware feel, high ceilings and subtle color scheme. The pictures do not do it justice. At Christmas time they always have a lighted tree in the entrance hall. I just love that. The dining room is best...away from the bar because it can get a little loud, and because most... More

The rating is average because of the staff. The food is generally good albeit steamed vegetables should not be bathed in butter. The staff seems to just process you. Very superficial, high turn over causes many rank amateur service people behind the bar, where I always sit. I have been to Max's well over 50 times and have never been... More
