Six of us dined at Max's and it was delicious. We shared the tempura tuna appetizer - it was so good. We all chose items from the prix fixe dinner. The spinach salad, sand dab entrée, and mango desert were my choices and amazing. Everything was so fresh and perfectly prepared - such a value for $25. Two of our group go there almost every week. The rest of us will be making this our go-to restaurant.

Went for Valentine's Day. Nice low key "fancy" restaurant. Service very good. Portions a little small but well cooked. Had a steak and some very tender short ribs.

Small, family-run place. Focused on the food rather than a brand, which is a refreshing change for the surrounding area. Californian with an Asian twist, we really enjoyed it.

Max's Grill was recommended to us by a shopkeeper on Cannery Row. We enjoyed impeccable service in a beautiful room. We both opted for the prix fixe meal. Dungeness crab cake and mahi mahi for my husband and the wild mushroom soup and pot roast for me. Both were excellent. A wonderful meal.

Excellent, creative chief. The deep fried sushi tuna roll is fantastic.
