What a great place! We had a pre-selected menu for a business meeting and it was really good! We had a small private room for 20 and it was just right. The serves was very good. The chef uses unique flavors to blend and create really good tasting food.

This is an over priced bistro, the waiters have an attitude that they would prefer to be some where else rather than wait on the customers. The food is good but for the Price it isn't Great!
I have asked other locals they feel the same way......

Cafe Maxx has always been a favorite but air had not been in lately. The space is smallish but very comfortable. Service was perfect and the meal was delicious. I recommend the Brussel sprouts and tuna sushi pizza to start.
Everyone loved their meal from filet to snapper to my favorite...the Hog Snapper. Definitely will come back as soon as I can!

We were recommended to go here by a friend's friend. It took more than 40 min to get our meals after ordering. The petite fillet mignon was delicious but everything else was mediocre to poor. My kids didn't eat their meals at all but the worst part was that we were still charged for their meals. Any decent "high end" restaurant would have tried to please but instead we paid for meals that we didn't even eat much less enjoy. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
