“Good Service but Meal was a Disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Recently tried Max Amore for the first time. I met friends for dinner. I loved the restaurant decor and found the staff service to be very attentive. I would give them an A+ in that area. I enjoyed my Della Casa salad, but was disappointed by my entree, which was a ravioli special.

To be fair, everyone in my group enjoyed their dinners, I just happen to be the odd person out. Although my meal didn't meet my expectations I would definitely go back because they had wonderful service along with a relaxed and comfortable dining experience.

Hopefully, a better meal next time.

“One of our favorites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

Just had another excellent lunch at Max Amore. We were seated quickly by a welcoming receptionist. Our waiter Steve was friendly and attentive and showed a genuine interest in providing exceptional service. While we looked over the lunch menu, Steve returned with a nice basket of breads which were warm and great with the good olive oil provided on the table. Steve inquired about our drink orders and I asked about beers on tap. Steve suggested the Founders Porter from Michigan. Wow, what a great beer, I would highly recommend this brew to any serious beer lover. I started with the Sicilian Calamari, not breaded or deep fried, featuring olives, capers and anchovies. Perfectly pan cooked Calamari with a great tasting sauce, a winner. Main course was a great eggplant dish with spinach, smoked mozzarella, sun dried tomatoes with a very tasty butter tomato sauce. My better half ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese served with pesto and a big dollop of Ricotta on top. I did have a taste of hers and it was primo. Service was excellent and never overbearing. This was a very relaxing and wonderful lunch experience. Total bill with a good tip was just under $60.00 a very good value. I would highly recommend Max Amore to anyone interested in a great meal and good service.

“Inconsistency is their strength!”

This is a great restaurant sometimes but it can also be horrible sometimes. No rhyme or reason just luck!
