It's a nice, though not very fancy place. I wouldn't say that it's "crème de la crème" of the French cuisine in Greater Toronto area, but the food is tasty, service is excellent and you get great deals. Every week they change list of about 8 "prix fixe": each contain soup or salad, then main course - meat or fish,... More

Simple and delicious! Superb with extra fresh blue berries. Searching for outstanding cakes and bakers is always a challenge. Maxim's has been around for quite a while providing both Restaurant and Bakery services. The Review is only on the Cake. The Meringue cake is available as Strawberry, Mango, Blue berry and Almond and finally Coffee. The filling is unlike most... More

Maxim caters predominantly to Chinese in the metro Toronto area. Its specials are of good value money wise to the Chinese customers who grew up with the Hong Kong style western cooking, which in my opinion is sub-par to a Canadian restaurant with good quality food. Having said that, Maxim does have a very good bakery section, and Maxim Bakery... More

The lunch special price is good, between the rang of $9 to $15 including soup, main course and coffee/tea. I always enjoy their seating as they are not overly packed and not too noisily. We go there quite often (may be once or twice a month for the last many years). The cake is good, I like their valvet cake.

Went to Maxim Restaurant last night for the first and last time. Order an app (Brushetta) and about 10 minutes later order our entrees. 35 minutes later they bring out the app. Now I don't know about you, but to toast bread and put Brushetta on it doesn't take this long. Not to mention it had no flavor. No seasoning... More

I have never been to a restaurant where they serve food so slow. It took over 30 mins for the main course to arrive after the soup was served. Absolutely absurd. The food may be good but the servers were horrendous. Would not recommend the restaurant because of service but would recommend the restaurant because of the food.

I have been here many times and have never had a bad experience. The food is outstanding, simply look at the menu. Be prepared to wait a bit for your cheque because the staff are very busy at high times. We eat out 5/7 times a week, we go here often and I highly recommend this restaurant................the food is fabulous!
