recommended by our taxi driver - and wish I would have gotten HER name

She was great as the restaurant. Clubby atmosphere, clean, slick. Service a bit slow but I know they were suddenly short handed. Food great and were open to customize my order a bit. There were 3 of us sitting nearby the Royal Navy. Among us we ordered Ravioli (small portion but outstanding); a... read more

We were targeting a different restaurant, however the wait to get in was way too long. Just next door was Maximo's and there was no wait! The ambience, service & food were spectacular. The presentation, dinnerware , flatware & glassware was well thought-out and tastefully done. If we return to New Orleans, this place will get a return visit. An... More

As an out-of-towner, if you're having Italian in N.O. you better be staying for more than a few days because you'll want to try the city's french, creole, seafood, and cajun restaurants before you should consider switching to something different. But being that we visit the French Quarter regularly, and we were in town for over a week, we did... More

Every time I have been to Maximos I have been VERY SATISFIED with the staff and just LOVE the FOOD. I have NEVER had a bad experience there. I just LOVE this place. I try to get there atleast 1 time during my visit to New Orleans. Can't wait to go back.

We went here for dinner on a Sunday evening. The place was more or less deserted. The service was perfunctory and the menu items and wines overpriced. Certainly not a place we would visit again.

Great place to drop in and sit at the pasta bar and watch your food being prepared. All cooked when ordered so fresh and hot. Haven't had a sauce I don't like yet. Great location in French Quarter. Friendly and efficient staff.
