Max 40 has been (somewhat) recently renovated...and it continues. They are taking some of their party space and turning it into an Asian Kitchen, which is sure to thrive, as all of their related restaurants! These guys know the business! My husband and I stopped in on Xmas Eve, for an drink and appetizer. We ended up sharing a delicious... More

A friend and I came here late one evening for drinks. The place was packed which we took as a good sign. Since there was absolutely no room at the bar, the hostess (who was very friendly) offered to sit us at a table. We ended up ordering a few glasses of wine and a pizza to share. The food... More

There was a group of ever changing size as we had our departmental Xmas party. Although the hostess was not able to find my party, it was not hard for me once I went down the tables a bit. Drinks were served promptly even though I ordered a rather passé drink of Dubonnet on the rocks. Chicken wings and various... More

Too dark, too expensive. Menu very limited. Waitress very hard to understand spoke broken English. Would have liked lemon in my water but not offered.

Good place, good food, ok service, ok quality. Overall Max40 is just like any other restaurant, same appetizers, same quality, good wine list and unless you are a regular you will receive exceptional service, otherwise it's just another restaurant on your list.

My visit has been a couple years ago when they first opened. I went with 2 friends and we all had fish (different types). All dishes were dry. Drinks are great there, the bar is nicely stocked. If you go for "Happy Hour" (not sure they have it but you get the idea), you should be fine. I have not... More

I agree this place seems to be more of a business gathering type restaurant. As I would not go on my own. The salmon was good but nothing to rave about.

I've gone to Max 40 several times for work dinners. The food is consistently excellent and it's a great business atmosphere. The place is very modern and a tiny bit stodgy so it's perfect for more formal business gatherings while for more informal gatherings, I'd pick other places in the area.

I've been coming here for about three years. This is the first review I've written. I like to try new places but my failsafe or one of my falesafw restaurants is Max 40. You can always count on great atmosphere, Music, Elegance, great food....

I was in town for business and a few people recommended this restaurant but stated it's a hit or miss. I decided to try it. I was early for dinner and the service was very slow. I waited at least 20 minutes before I was asked for my order. I ordered the salmon, veggies, and salad. The salmon needed more... More
