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

Great place for a foodie! Menu changes weekly, but can't go wrong with staples like the tuna sashimi pizza and onion crusted snapper! Look for the awesome summer $35 wine tastings too!

My daughter and I went to dinner for her birthday on the recommendation of her boss. The wait staff indicated that Cafe Maxx was in its 30th year, suggesting a model for customer satisfaction. We had a delicious bottle of wine, a '10 Leviation Meritage for $80. from their very extensive (and accurate) wine list, Our entree's were the three... More
