Took a new client to lunch and was impressed with quality of food and service. We had a chicken flatbread and grilled chicken sandwich with salads and food was fresh, hot and tasty. Service was prompt but not overbearing.

A table for two in the bar area for appetizers and drinks. The service was friendly and helped us choose a variety of appetizers along with happy hour cocktails. The food was delicious including the calamari, meatball on a bun, pizza and the parmesan fries. We have been there several times and we will be going back.

17bucks bought the large size pizza, but it was more of a personal size pizza. :( The crust was one of those frozen ones anyone can buy at a warehouse store. You know, with the grill marks perfectly uniform? No air bubbles, no bite, no crisp, just chewy. Fresh herbs snipped with a few canned tomatoes crushed. ..were charred. ..in... More

Disappointment. Loud, noisey, could not have a conversation. The food was mediocre. We have been there before probably a year before. I enjoyed my meal, my husband did not. Therefore tje year wait. We did not stay for dessert or coffee and we have not entertained the thought of going back anytime doon. Expected so much more being a member... More

We met friends two hours distant at this convenient mid-way point - Max Amore. Reviews like I've read about M.A. are why I started writing T.A. reviews in the first place - too many bad reviews where the issues probably aren't as bad as they seemed at the moment. We wandered in the back door and were treated like royalty... More

Max Amore has been a fixture in Glastonbury for many years and you could always count on great service and food. Dinner here last Wednesday night totally changed my perception; the service was fine and attentive, the food was another story. I have never been to a restaurant where I could not fine a single wine choice that didn't elicit... More

Always love the food here... favorite salad with polenta croutons! We also had a couple of happy hour specials in the bar - flatbreads were good. Service seems rushed... guessing they want to turn tables.

We visited this past week arriving at about 9:00 p.m. and ordering entrees and drinks. After the repast, the help staff was visibly rude in a-hemming and indicating our stay with them was over and finished. The food was dear. Expensive but plentiful. Nothing looked extraordinary and the margin of profit seems close to highway robbery.
