4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

They have a great summer deal for $36 pp. Appetizer, main & desert. I had the grilled Brussels sprouts, (yummy) yellow tail (yummy) and cheesecake,(yummy). The tuna sashimi pizza appetizer is good as well!

We just finished eating at at Cafe Maxx and I couldn't wait to give it a review because it was so good! I was a little worried because we went so late at night, 10pm reservation, that the food and service wouldn't be that great but it was quite the opposite! They treated us like royalty as the last customers... More

Went for Dine Out Fort Lauderdale. Haven't been here in a very look time and we all know that Oliver really started the whole Foodie thing in at least Broward that I'm aware of. So this was my first of the Dine Out. Early reservation 6:00pm. Seated immediately of course at that hour. But it does get busy. Felt a... More

The food at Cafe Maxx is Top Notch all the way and Compliments to the Chef's. The cocktails and wine offerings were all paired well with our meal selections. All 4 entrees ordered were perfectly prepared and delicious. No doggie bags needed as everyone in our party cleared their plates. The Hog Fish, Scallops, Snapper and Skirt Steak were all... More

We came here for Sunday brunch on vacation. The breakfast BLT I had was one of the best sandwiches I have had for any meal ever. It was HUGE and flavor-filled. Plus, you had me at "bottomless mimosas". Everyone else enjoyed their meals. My friend got the macadamia French toast and liked it but felt that the nuts overpowered the... More

We have been coming here for many years and this restaurant is pretty good although not the best around. We recently tried the Neighborhood Nights menu on a Sunday night. Probably not one of the best nights to go to this restaurant. It seems as though the wait staff and chefs are sort of like the 4th shift. For the... More

Had family in town and took them to Cafe Maxx. What a treat. My parents travel a lot and are very hard to impress. Ricardo was our server and he was very professional with great suggestions. The food and wines were out of this world. We had many dishes. A great scallop carpaccio so creative, scallops were red. Tuna Pizza... More

Small place with excellent service, wines and most important spectacular food. Menu changes regularly. Tuna pizza appetizer is a must. Deserts are great also.
