Service was good. I had the Philly style sandwich. Very plain sandwich missing a lot of flavor. Not sure why this place is such a local favorite.

Top notch service, tasty food, beautiful decor and nice atmosphere. I had a Toscana salad and it was really good I just wished I copied the table next to us and got it as my meal. My husband had his usual Caesar and we shared two pies. The pies were good not great. The mushroom one had a nice flavor... More

We started off with a wonderful calamari, nice and tender..We then ordered a caesar salad and was searching for the sharp flavors of anchovy,parmesan,capers,lemon etc..My friends entree was the hanger medallions, she couldn't chew it .. I order the marinated chicken, cooked great but was lacking the marinate flavors..kids got pasta... More

The wood grilled flat iron steak was not quite what I expected in taste and texture from a Max. The medium steak was cooked exactly medium. The Brussels sprouts were very good and the Gorgonzola butter was a great topper. The two end sections were a bit dry and tough. The center portion was much better. The excellent Cesar salad...

This is a popular restaurant and can get crowded and noisy on busy nights. The pizza and the appetizers are wonderful and the pasta is just as good. The presentation of the food is well done and the service is always quick and efficient. The bar area is also busy for the after work crowd and be prepared to wait... More

My plan tonight was to go to Max Fish again, but being on a tight schedule I couldn't get a table... but was lucky enough to get a reservation at Max Amore. Having wanted to try here for a while, I was excited to see if they met the Max standard of excellence. I'm happy to say they did. Had... More

I seem to be one of the hit or miss diners. Never leave thinking I had a wow meal. Three of us ordered veal and all agreed it was over cooked and tough. Server took two of our meals back and attempted to try again. Not that much better. The veal didn't even look appealing. Six of us dined in,... More

They have an entire menu just for bloody Mary's. And the rest of the menu leaves nothing out. A great Sunday brunch means every meal at once and Max Amore delivers. I would have give five stars but the service was spotty though they may have been understaffed

Although there was a 30 minute wait, I was able to grab a table in the bar. The food was excellent, as was the wine. They had a great basket of bread with garlic and olive oil. My only regret??..I didn't have dessert!
