My husband and I went here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We had an absolutely wonderful evening. The food was so amazing and the wine was absolutely delicious. It was so wonderful to order a steak "medium" and actually have it cooked the right way. Too many times we've gone out and never had our steak cook the way... More

I've been to Max 40 a few times. I lived in West Palm Beach for 5 years, and there aren't many trendy hot spots in the Danbury, Brewster, Carmel area but Max 40 compares to WOB, it is quite impressive. Service was always friendly, prompt and attentive. Food is amazing. Atmosphere is upbeat, classy, trendy and fun. Bar is always... More

We love the atmosphere at Max 40 and the food is always delicious. It is a bit pricey, so we don't go that often. I would recommend trying for lunch as we did last Sunday. Our waiter, Rocco, was informative, pleasant and did not rush us...another reason to try on a Sunday afternoon rather than a busy Saturday night. My... More

Went here with a girlfriend of mine for a late dinner. I had the seared sea scallops and shrimp with lemon risotto. It was good but expensive. My girlfriend had the seared salmon, she said it was delicious. The waiter was very friendly and checked in us a few times without being annoying.

Serving 9 people at the same time shouldn't be difficult for such a reputable business. The chef may be creating great dishes which we all loved, but waiting for everyone to start enjoying the meal took us about 6 minutes. Two server could have brought all 9 of our dishes at the same time and we could have enjoyed the... More

Tonight we ate at Max40 and experienced truly awful service. This was not our first visit and did nor reflect our past visits. However tonight the service was so incompetent that it deserves a "terrible" review of its own. The waiter hardly made any effort and kept disappearing. Dinner took nearly 3 hours, we waited to order drinks, order food,... More

Waiter was excellent. Food average yet very pricey. Atmosphere was very nice with the exception of being loud and sitting under A/C vents as opposed to the center area.

Great burgers with great tasting fries. Plus it's not that expensive considering the rest of the menu. The only problem is the service is not particularly good. The wait staff is very indifferent.
