Tried Maxim's 22 for the first time. Called ahead for preferred seating and the four of us were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was very familiar with the menu and was able to accurately describe all of the options. Food and service was very good. Prices were not unreasonable. There were a couple of things that could have made this a better experience. First- the beer choices! Twenty two beers on tap and nothing more to go on than their names listed on the drink menu. NOT very helpful. They really need to have a bit of a description of each of the beers. The server was able to describe any that we asked about and made a couple of suggestions. However, a brief blurb written on the drink menu about them would have made this process a LOT simplier. Second- they had a pretty extensive selection of 'specials' on Friday evening and she was able to describe each one. But there were too many to keep track of. Having them written down so the table could read them would have helped. Third- this was an observation of the other couple we were with - every time the server was describing any aspect of the menu she referred to the choices in terms of..."I have for you...." as opposed to ..."We have...". I didn't really notice it, but the other couple felt this was pretty pretentious. In retrospect, I see their point. I'm sure this is how she is trained to present the choices so I am not claiming it was HER. This one I can overlook but after a while it did grate on me too. Overall, we were happy with our decision to try Maxim's and will go back.
