The food was excellent. I had Le Châteaubriant and my husband, Carré d’Agneau rôti et son jus au thym. It was a busy restaurant full of atmosphere and the chef patron a showman! It was a pleasure to see him making steak tartare at table for another group. The wine list had some great local wines.

In April, we had lunch at Restaurant Chez Max while on a short visit to Epernay. We loved that it was on "the other side of the tracks" and that the clientele was French. Max and his lovely wife greeted us, changing some things around so that we could have a table in the corner where we could watch the... More

The food was very exquisite and the steak tartare is a must in this restaurant ! Only the way they prepare it in front of you is amazing. And it's not just about the show, what... More

We had a most enjoyable night at Chez Max, probably highlighted with the lovely interaction we (and all guests) has with Max, I had the stake tartare which was lovely (and very filling), my partner has the rack of lamb, which was also a generous serve. Don't hold back with the cheese plate, Chez Max has a wonderful selection of... More

Booked as party of 24. Excellent food & service right down to complimentary limoncello whilst waiting for our taxis. Don't be put off by the neon light outside!

A small French Restaurant, out of town, with a terrific ambiance and food to match. We thought that it was going to be a quiet evening but it was anything but! The door kept opening and everyone was made welcome

We were visiting some Champaign producers and had a b&b in Dizy. We were advised to eat at Chez Max and we had a lovely diner. Food was very nice, especially the "steak tartare" that is prepared in front of you. We will definitely go there next time !!@

I liked the staff, and I had hopes for the food. We were disappointed as this was supposed to be one of the best restraunts in town. The 1st coarse was fairly standard, but both main dishes were too salty for our taste. I it also could be be that we have had too many dinners out recently, so you... More

Booked this restaurant because of all the reviews. Called up and spoke to who i believe was the owner and he was very friendly and polite. Turned up at 7pm and they open at 7,30 however they let us in and made us feel very welcome. The main man who walks around is very funny and friendly and explains anything... More
