Good Food Friendly Service

Everything was delicious. We had pizza, chicken in lemon sauce and the skirt steak which was especially tender and tasty.

If you're looking for great, affordable, Tuscan food in Tribeca, walk 1/2 block off Greenwich (away from all the kitschy Italian places) to Max, on Duane St. Attentive waitstaff and an innovative menu makes Max an outstanding find.

Good pizza and pasta for the price and quaint brick wine bar interior. One of our dishes came out incorrect and took a little too long to return but overall the experience was good.

A group of us visited this place over Memorial Day weekend. We had a reservation, thankfully, as they only have about a dozen or so tables. Service was very attentive, despite the waitress having most of the upstairs section. Their menu is fairly traditional. I see from other reviews a mixed bag. Some people really like the place some don't.... More

This looks like a small business restaurant; food tasted great, fairly priced. Personnel was professional and accomodating (we are a little bit complicated at restaurants...). Good wine selection for a small restaurant, again, fairly priced. One little thing: we were "offered" coffe and it showed up on the menu. But this detail will not impede me from strongly recommending Max.

Perfect for our girls day out in NYC. It's very cute inside and staff are really nice. We recharged phones over lunch. I had the frisée chicken salad with avocado and apple and lemon dressing - amazing. My friend had the caprese sandwich and also loved it. Would go back!

In tribeca with the food I enjoy. Humble food done well. Fettuccine with maxs meat sauce is a great example. Superb for kids too, just ask for the kids size.

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
