Steak House

Steak is the star of the menu. Mine was very good and served as I had requested it. The service was attentive and responsive. A nice experience.

Not sure what they want this place to be. They put up a good image but it's paper thin. Ambiance somewhere between sports bar and Starbucks. Host and waiters friendly, but don't follow through with attentive service. Menu was indecisive - from pizza and burgers to NYC steak prices. Food was just OK. 40 day aged rib eye could have...

Thank goodness I won a $75 gift card. Review would have been worse with my money. It started with our arrival. Dinner for two. Booth or table? We said booth so we were stuck in the bar side. Noisy and poor service. Beer on tap is mediocre. Fried calamari appetizer wasn't bad. Shrimp and scallop dinner, three shrimp and two... More

We live in Danbury and enjoy all the local restaurants, we have some good ones. Max 40 has a great atmosphere, older crowd right up our alley. BUT...we are so disappointed in their menu. They added a raw bar and steaks, that's nice. But we look forward to sitting at the bar after work on a week night, looking for... More

A dramatic NYC space, lots of finished wood, gorgeous bar, dramatic lighting, a world away from danbury. The menu mimic The best steak houses in the city. Congenial waiters try hard to interpret requests. And then the food areives. 2 lamb chops on steroids, mashed potatoes and frozen carrots and string beans. The lamb was tough and tasteless the mashed... More

Dry-aged beef with all of the trimmings. The porterhouse seemed a little smaller than advertised but was delicious. The restaurant is very nicely decorated - swanky bar is the centerpiece.

Excellent selection of steak and seafood from the menu and a nice selection of draft beer. Atmosphere was good for having a business conversation. Noise level was on the low side. Service was very good. Wait staff was attentive throughout.

Great apps and cocktails. Unhurried but very busy restaurant. Calamari and chicken wings were excellent and spicy. Pizza so so. Salads looked lovely. Good selection of beers and mixed drinks.

We were visiting the area for business with friends and wanted to try a local restaurant. What a great find, the inside of the restaurant has a very contemporary vibe and the staff were very professional and fun to talk to. The owner was very nice and come over to our table several times to ensure good service and quality.... More
