Great service and great food

The wait staff and the doormen are what sets this place apart. Usually the restaurant manager greets everyone at dinner and it makes you feel appreciated. I've eaten here before and had the Prix-Fixe meal. This time I had the Kansas steak and a house salad. meal total was around $42, but worth... read more

Poor lunch. Lobster roll was awful. Do not get it. For $20 expected to see chunks of lobster. Too much bread compared to lobster. We were only people in the place and service was slow. Wouldn't go back.

I have nothing against football, if fact I love it…but the other night I want to Max40 for a celebratory drink. shocked to find that the red crystal chandleirs were gone, the red velvet banquettes were gone and with them all the romance and glamour…in their place was wood and more wood. It had become a sports bar. Ordered a... More

I met a friend here for an early dinner. We sat at the bar which is lovely. There were open air windows which were very nice. However we were the only ones at the bar and it took the bartender at least 10 minutes to take our drink order. We then asked for menus and again no one came back... More

We were pleasantly surprised at what a good meal we got, how nice the atmosphere was and how enjoyable our evening was. We tried it once when it first opened, and decided it wasn't for us. But we returned recently and had a great meal! The drinks came quickly, the steak and salad was delicious, our table was comfortable and... More

We went for Father's Day and then went back the following week for y birthday. Great selection of wines to enjoy. The steaks were out of this world; tender, juicy, cooked to perfection. We all had salads that were fresh and tasty. We ordered the au gratin potatoes; the first time they were exceptional, the second time they were okay.... More

Decour is OK, but atmosphere is cold. Food was well prepared and plated. Server got the order wrong and was pissed that he had to fix it. Will not become a regular - a number of better options nearby.

This is the right place for a drink in good company, celebrate something and also experience decent food. Let's say that the menu is quite predictable: steaks, sandwiches, burghers, salads, some seafood, soup of the day or onion soup etc etc etc A very good and extensive wine collection, many cocktails, 4 tap beers and others by the bottle. So... More

The restaurant and bar area is very impressive, decorated beautifully while still feeling comfortable. The menu is a mix of casual comfort foods and pricey surf & turf options. Overall, the food was great, no issues with that. However, we waited nearly 15 mins for our server to come to our table and take our drink & appetizer orders. We... More
