Service is outstanding, old world charm, and the chef is amazing

Consistently out standing, and has been for years, and years. This is my first choice in fine dining in the city of Hamilton.

From the moment we entered the restaurant until we left first class all the way! The wait staff were so pleasant attentive and very knowledgable that he made everything sound so wonderful that you wanted to order it all. The various little separate rooms and area made for a very personal and intimate gathering for our group of seven. We... More

When you want to feel pampered our waiter is the man to do that for you, a man who gives great attentive service without hovering. No complaints with the food either as my pickerel entrée was fork fluffy and tasty and my partner's steak was cooked just the way he ordered it. Dinner, tax and tip (no alcohol) came to... More

I had the pleasure of dining in your restaurant in late January with both of my sisters one of whom was in a wheel chair. It started the moment I walked in the door and ask if they were wheelchair accessible. One of the workers put out a ramp to get my sister in the door. They changed up some... More

I've been going to Maxwells since I was a little girl, and can honestly say it's the best restaurant in Hamilton. The menu is always changing and never disappointing. I can never go there without getting 3 baskets of garlic bread. My favourite meal on the menu is the filet mignon. They cook steak to perfection. I've tried varieties of... More

We looked forward to exemplary food and service as we'd experienced a couple of times before at Lo Presti's. This time, we visited with long time, loyal "regulars" and were given a lovely table in a room by ourselves. Unfortunately, only the "regulars" were given much attention. We found ourselves to be quite invisible by the staff. The crab cake... More

I was looking for a nice restaurant in Hamilton in which to celebrate our son's Graduation from McMaster University. We were coming from Ottawa and staying overnight. I found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and we were absolutely thrilled. We had made reservations early on and we were very warmly welcomed. There were nine of us and we had a... More

My mother and I went for dinner and it was fabulous. Right from the minute we walked in the door they all made us feel welcome. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. You get what you pay for and was worth every penny. Will defiantly be back!!

I'm not saying this is a bad place but I can't say it's a good place either. I just don't see the value. The food and atmosphere do not match up with the cost of the Meal. They aren't bad and the service wasn't either. Our meal Friday night was at La Cantina and that was amazing. I'm probably being... More
