“A bit hard to find, but WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

We've been to Cafe Maxx a couple of times. The food has been nothing short of spectacular. For a little out of the way place, it's definitely worth the trip. The decorate/atomsphere was very nice; the service each time we've went was very attentive; and the food has been terrific -- served hot with great presentation and very tasty. Be sure to order one of the daily specials. Cafe Maxx is not the cheapest place in the world, but you do get value for your money.

“Best Continental”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2009

This is a great continental cuisene restaurant The menu changes every day,their 3 peppercorn steak is better then Ruths chris,mortons , Captial grill etc. the sea food selecttion is fresh and innovative Talapia with mango relish.Their Dessert selection is fantastic their chocolate mocha gananche tower is too die for. Service is down to earth and not rude or pretentious like so many upper end restaurants. Make the reservation its worth the trip.

“Why is this place not number 1?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2009

This place is truly excellent. I can't believe I never noticed it before. Mind you , I always drive by it, exiting Heustons Parking. The food was VERY well prepared. Cooked to perfection, I've never had juicier swordfish! Garnish and side dishes were simply delicious. Overall the dinner was probably one of my most memorable, dessert not so much. Another interesting thing I noticed was that you can bring your own wine bottle and they cork it between 20-25 per bottle. Go there.

“Great Experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2009

This was our first time to this highly recommended restaurant. We heard about this local spot through our concierge who told us this is a must try. We felt welcomed by the complimentary valet which was waiting as we pulled up. We started at the bar for a cocktail be before we sat down for dinner. They had a very creative drink and wine list to chose from. Our food was amazing with so many choices from seafood to the wide selection of meats. The waitress was very knowledgeable steering us through the menu and wine list. We had a great experience, would definitely recommend!
