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

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

I went with two colleagues for dinner, the choices were excellent, I opted for the crab cakes followed by Shrimp & Scallops with risotto it was really nice. My friend had the beet salad and I was so envious I ordered it for take out for my lunch the following day - it was also delicious. Our server Rocko was... More

I would give better than average because food and experience is consistently better than average. The atmosphere varies depending when you go. I like to sit at the bar and have dinner there . When reading reviews of people who would never go back because thei meal was not done well, why on earth, not send it back ?

This restaurant has a nice atmosphere in general, however, females arriving and/or sitting at the bar...be aware. The food here is quite good and the servers are mostly friendly and warm, however, there is a male host at times who leers and the bar itself seems to attract men who tend to be a bit too aggressive. A recent renovation... More

I was very disappointed with my experience at Max 40. My husband and I went for our Valentine's Day dinner, the night after Valentine's Day which happened to be a very cold Sunday night. The restaurant was quite empty, however the waiter was extremely innatentive. We had to ask someone else to send the waiter over to take our order... More

Pro's and con's- as my title suggests- this place is loud. The noise level is sacrificed for aesthetics- I get it- the place is inviting, with a busy bar, high top tables, banquettes and regular tables. Didn't realize (I guess I should have) that beef is their specialty, although they do offer a good variety of other dishes. Roast best... More
