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.

We had a gift card for this restaurant from our kids. Even though it was no more than two miles away, we had never been there. They had been there and loved it. We went for an early Saturday night dinner and chose to sit at a high top booth in the bar area. Since it was not that busy... More

I had heard amazing things about this place but was disappointed by the value for the dollar. The food was WAY overpriced and if they think they are serving jumbo shrimp they need glasses.

We received a gift card for Max 40 and went for a date night. Menu was varied, and since aged beef was their specialty, I ordered the 10 oz. fillet mignon. I'm not a big meat eater, but this dish was cooked to perfection! Wine was excellent and reasonably priced. Vegetables came out cool, but the waiter quickly had them... More

My husband and I went for dinner on a Saturday evening around 7:00. We were offered 3 tables however opted to eat at the bar and leave the 4 tops for those that needed them and sat at the bar - big mistake. The bar tender came over quickly and filled our drink orders and appetizer expeditiously but it went... More
