New Year's Eve is special so choosing Cafe Maxx to mark the occasion was an excellent choice. Having an early reservation meant we could relax and enjoy the quiet while drinking our favorite cocktails (all well made drinks here). We love their Caesar salad and really relished our entrees (hogfish for me and braised veal and spinach tortellini for my... More

Yes it's true café maxx truly delivers when it comes to food quality, taste and service. The only thing lacking for some as shown in the reviews is the spacing between tables if you are claustrophobic you may not like this restaurant, as they do tend to pack it in. It is not a concern for me so five stars... More

I used to go here, ages ago, and went with a group of friends on the spur of the moment. The room was familiar, but fresh, the hostess and staff, friendly. The do seem to have some outdoor seating, but go for inside. Atlantic Avenue is not a feast for the eyes. Most of all, the food was even better... More

I have no idea why anyone goes there. I looked forward to going for my birthday and taking some friends. Big Regret! We were sitting packed in so close to the table behind us. No one in my party liked any of their dishes. The service came to the table in a big hurry " So what would you like?"... More

This place has stood the test of time. How many fine dining spots in Florida have lasted as long and longer than this place ? The kitchen always delivers a find meal. If only the place would relocate or redecorate.

havent been there in years, probably won't go back for many more. First we arrived with a reservation, were taken to our booth, which had not been cleaned and reset. Had to wait for that. Seated, waited maybe 5 minutes, waitress said she would be back with water and breads. Another 10 minutes, and she wanted to take our full... More

Outstanding wine, cocktails and menu selection. I've had just about everything on the menu over the years and have never been disappointed.

I've been to this restaurant once before in the summer and I was definitely looking forward to another visit. It's known as a fine dining restaurant where the high prices on the regular menu are also reflected by the high quality of the cuisine and in the details of the customer service. Well... Not in this visit. The overall experience... More

Ambiance is nice and the food is one of the best I've had. Yes, it is not cheap, so I don't go often, but strongly recommend this restaurant for special ocassions. They have a promotion until November usually that for a fix price includes appetizer, entree and dessert. EXCELLENT deal!

Café Maxx is one of my very favorite restaurants. Great for special occasions and equally a fun place to eat at the bar. It would be hard to find a more friendly place to spend an evening. The food is ALWAYS memorable. It is one of those places where making a choice is always challenging....sharing plates is what we often... More
