Very good food and prep. Imaginative specials combining the traditional and international variations. Good service. Somewhat noisy neighborhood bistro, funky atmosphere but fun. Not a romantic get-away.

Walking back from the Cottonwood Falls Market on Saturday afternoon, we stumbled across this cool little restaurant. The food was fresh and very tastly, local ingredients & all home made. The service was fast and we were made to feel at home. Everyone was friendly and ready to chat. The artwork on the walls all local and very eclectic. Will... More

Max & Irma's is centrally located just off Baker Street. We stayed in the guest suite so this was very convenient for us. We went in for a late dinner and it was very busy but the food and atmosphere was exceptional. One waitress but she was very attentive and organized. One thing we noticed that paying at the till...

Group of six bikers and we stopped for late lunch. It is about a half block off the center of town and has a nice outdoor space. I had a wonderful salad at a very reasonable price. It was a bit late for lunch and the service was excellent. The menu indicated a lot of available options for dinner.

My husband had the prime rib which was cooked beautifully. I had the latest creation, a peach pizza. Not a dessert pizza but the real thing with peaches on it. It was delicious but pricey at $22 for maybe a 10' pizza. Service was great and live music played to add to the unique atmosphere.

Very quaint little Italian Restaurant in the heart of Nelson. Excellent service, tasty well prepared food - we shared the lasagna - the spinach salad was excellent, plentiful and appealing! Would not hesitate to visit again (and again, and again). Reservations recommended as the place filled fast!

Recommended by our hotel for wood fired pizzas. We walked in to the two chefs scowling. The servers were efficient and very nice.mi had a lovely dinner salad but that's where it all ended. My husband orders the special pizza which was no more than a pizza base with tiny pieces of toppings that were hard to decipher unless tasted... More

My husband and I have been to Max and Irma's Kitchen on a number of occasions, in the past, and we've never been disappointed. This visit was no different. Not only is the food outstanding, but despite the fact we'd not been there in two years, the waitress remembered us from our last visit, even reminding us of the table... More

Amazing food! Strong flavour. Service was a little slow, but it was worth it! Authentic homemade taste and great Italian seasoning. I recommend their daily special, pizza or pasta. I'd also recommend the Tiramisu for dessert. Yum!

I have eaten here on several occasions and have enjoyed every one prior to this. Tonight the service was slow and the server, while nice, appeared harried. I ordered the dinner salad which was almond-crusted salmon atop Jasmine rice, greens with a blueberry-peach salsa, home-smoked cheese and cashews. My husband had ribs and lemon herb potatoes. Everything tasted fresh, but... More
