We visited Max's for my birthday this year due to some friends having rave reviews of the place. So, we had some oysters, that come already dressed for you. In my opinion it was an overpowering mignonette that took away from the awesome flavor that oysters possess. We had some wonderful cuts of steak, but the downfall, again, was that the steaks all come drenched in a wine reduction. The side dishes are a la carte and were flavorful and sharable in portions. In all honesty, it was a well trimmed and perfectly prepared steak, but, for the price of the meal, it is a shame to mask the flavors of certain dishes, including the entrees.
