Wow. We just finished dinner at Chez Max with Frank and his amazing team. I have never had friendlier, more authentic service since moving to France. My party of two couples was hungry but poorly prepared for dinner after several nearby cellar tours and champagne tastings. We walked aimlessly around the center of town and nothing stuck out. We had... More

This is our third meal here in a year and each one has been a wonderful experience,mainly created by the Fabulous Franck who really ought to be on TV. His enthusiasm for getting it all spot on knows no bounds and while we are on bounds he is up and down those stairs making sure that everyone has a very... More

Just loved the hospitality, Max made us feel so welcome. Food and wine were excellent and great value compared to some of the up market restaurants we'd eaten in during our holiday.. Would highly recommend this place..

We went on the recommendation of where we were staying and they were so right. This is a great restaurant with very good food and tremendous atmosphere mainly provided by Max. Without his wife on, Max ran up and down the stairs all night to make sure that everyone got exactly what they wanted. And we did. There are 3... More

This was a great mom & pop place where the owner/chef was very helpful with the menus, and very welcoming. The appearance and decor were not what you'd expect (as pointed out by other reviewers), but hey, this is France. We had pork medallions that were very good, as were the other courses, and the prices very reasonable. I would... More

As other reviewers have commented do not be put off by exterior or location. Can get busy so booking may be necessary. Service was fast and furious and restaurant has a lively atmosphere. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Something for everyone. Good wine list which was not outrageously priced. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone... More

We ate at Chez Max on a Saturday evening. Do not be put off by the exterior or area, inside it is lovely. The staff are friendly and attentive and sympathetic to our lack of French, something rare we discovered as we travelled around the country! The food was a culinary adventure and every course was perfect. I could not... More

When you walk into a restaurant and ask for a table and are greeted with " yes of course, it'll be a pleasure " you know it's going to be a good evening. We had been here 5 years before and so were very pleased to find it again! The owner, Max? Was extremely pleasant and efficient. We were shown... More

We made a reservation in advance, which was neccessary because the restaurant was fully booked. The staff was very nice and some of them could help us translate the menu to English. Three of us ate fish, and one ate meat. We were all very pleased with the food we ordered. We would all love to come back!

We recently went to Chez Max in Epernay based on the Tripadvisor reviews. As discussed, we asked that our table for 10 be on the ground floor so we could be served by Franck the owner. Everyone had an excellent meal. Franck had a deep knowledge of the Champagnes on his list and we were definitely rewarded by taking his... More
