A 4% service charge will be added to your check. It replaces the older system of servers “tipping out” support staff. 100% of this charge is going to the restaurant and is used to provide a better living wage to non tipped employees. As our servers are no longer tipping out, it is appropriate for you to deduct this charge from your server’s tip.

We stopped in for lunch after arriving in Seattle. We sat on the patio and had amazing views of the harbor with great food and cocktails. The service was top notch. I will definitely return on my next visit! Nice, relaxing and refreshing lunch.

Maximilien's is a quintessential French bistro. Located in the Pike Place Market, just south of the "pig", where they throw the fish, and Don and Joe's Meats, it's easy and convenient. In good weather, you can sit on the terrace and watch the ferries and...More

Quite confusing way to the restaurant. Bit pricy. Food okayish. Ambience not so great. Mostly non veg options.

Maximilien used to be my aunt's favorite french restaurant in the Seattle area, but no more. Half of my family lives in the Loire Valley, land of good wine and food, and we were brought up on delicious french food. I don't know if it...More

Searching for an evening, style French cuisine, we chose this restaurant without further questioning. It turned out to be a great succès! Great service, discrete waiter (a Frenchman: he knows what stylish means) and delicious food were in place. A beautiful view over the bay...More

I liked the view in the restaurant looking across water and islands makes one feel good. The food was very good and service was excellent. However like many things in Seattle, it is expensive.
