We dine here frequently and are never disappointed. The shared appetizer sampler was great and I enjoyed the jambalaya. We were offered a Cabernet Sauvignon recommended by one of our servers and it was excellent.
As always , . . Great evening. Service exceptional!
Such a wonderful experience. The entire team were outstanding. This will be a regular spot for me.
Made the birthday celebration fantastic.
We booked here for our Twentieth Wedding Anniversary Date Night based on Trip Advisor Reviews and were very impressed with the overall experience. The service was spot on, not in your face but there when you wanted it. The food was excellent and there was live music which created a great ambiance. I would definitely recommend a visit for special occasions. It will be our new go to place for date night.
The pickerel special was ok. The shrimp appetizer was great and the music and ambience was fantastic.
Awesome service. Great food. Good ambiance. What more could you ask for?
Max has become one of our favorite spots. The food, the service and ambience is fantastic! The personal touch is obvious as the owner is very engaged with every aspect of your evening. A must try as you will not be disappointed.
Wonderful evening. Combination of great background music, tasty food and great service. Nice little find in Burlington. We will definitely be back!
Great find. Something for everyone! Definitely recommend this place. Classy but comfortable. Great food! Great atmosphere.
Amazing food and incredible service. The live music was a girl and her guitar and she was outstanding. Very talented singer who created a romantic and relaxing experience. This was our first time dining here and we were only disappointed that we hadn't discovered this hidden gem earlier.
Great little spot. Food and service are outstanding. Good Value. Just lacks a bit of atmosphere.
We can for our anniversary. It will not be the last time we come.
Very nice evening. Good food and service
Always excellent. The best wait staff ever. Daniella is top notch. Love the singer Sarah. Beautiful voice and the right volume
Another fabulous evening at Max. Food and service were both excellent. We started with cocktails and they were excellent. Probably the best Negroni I have had. We enjoyed appetizers and main courses. We all ordered something different and all enjoyed our meals. We wanted to order our wines by the glass and Barry the owner came by and made excellent recommendations. We were celebrating 2 special occasions. The staff recognized this and sent over complementary liqueurs to end our evening. A lovely touch. This was our 3rd time here and certainly won't be the last.
We celebrated my husbands birthday here. The atmosphere was cozy and relaxed. My husband and my son had steak and they said it was very good. I eat mostly a plant based diet but I also eat fish so I ordered the perch. It was very tasty and full of flavour. The owner actually came to our table and asked how everything was. He was very gracious and genuine. The live music late evening created a very romantic ambiance. Overall very happy with the restaurant. The only thing I would suggest if I may is to add at least one main vegan/vegetarian dish to the dinner menu. I am sure it would be accommodated on request but it would be nice and thoughtful to have that choice on the menu.
Loved it! The food was excellent and the atmosphere was elegant
Great service. Enjoyed the patio and the live music!!
Hands down one of the best dining experiences we have had in a while. Great food, service and atmosphere. You are missing out if you don't try Max's.
It was our first time here and will definitely not be our last. We really enjoyed the dining, service and later outdoor music.
We took advantage of the Taste of Burlington option, it was a pairing menu and fabulous!!!
Food was very tasty although the portion sizes could be reduced somewhat. I couldn't eat all the vegetables. Loved the singer for the night. Good easy listening music.
We went to Max Resto Lounge for an Anniversary celebration. We sat on the patio on a beautiful night. Although not scenic, the patio is unfettered by traffic and quite private and comfortable. Also inside is very nice. But most of all the staff is very knowledgeable, professional, attentive, gracious and created a superb dining experience for us. We had the "sampler", a fantastic selection of many of their finest foods with wine pairings. It was to die for. Price was reasonable, since we had some additional wine. Great value for money. On top of all this, Peter Marino sang a wonderful repertoire of songs, somewhat Vegas entertainment style. Not too loud, just right. He has a terrific voice and some Elvis melodies, for example, had that distinctive Elvis sound. But he sang many others and was in command of all of his musical selections. He too was very nice and together with the staff and the great food and wine created an unforgettable experience for us. But you don't need a special event to go. We will be back soon. Thank you Max Resto!
Max Resto was an undiscovered gem for me. Our group all loved their food . Each of us had different orders. Gabrielle our server should do stand up comedy. She was hilarious as well as competent. The patio is very cosy. The entertainer topped off an excellent evening with great songs from our era. His interaction with the patrons was a lot of fun.
Had a great time. The entertainment was so interactive with the small group.
As always another great evening. The food is excellent supported with great service. Never disappoints. A real keeper.
Lunch was a delight. Patio is well shaded and very cozy. Had the chicken wrap with side salad. Nice portions. Chicken was tender, and delicious. Salad dressing on mixed greens loaded with flavor. Finished off with the best tiramisu in the GTA. Max Resto Lounge is easily one of the best restaurants in Burlington. Waitstaff and owner (Bruce) are exceptionally attentive and friendly.
Ether restaurant was very quiet on the Sunday night in a July . The singer was excellent and the food was amazing. Would like to return and sit on the patio.
We always enjoy our visits to Max’s. It is great that we can walk there. We’ve had the the tasting menu four times. Always different, love it. The music is great. You can even get up and dance. It’s so nice on the patio too. The service has been exceptional. Max’s is a real gem.
Excellent food. We had the tasting 6 course menu. The portions were generous. The only negative comment that I have to make is that the Sous chef could not confirm if the Jagerschnitzel was made from Pork or Veal. The chef substituted my dish with chicken (just in case) which was much juicier and tastier than the regular meat they use in jagerscnitzel.
Will visit agin and hope that kitchen staff are better informed next time.
Great food. Friendly staff. Must try the 1505 Shrimp or the Escargot. Yum yum yum!!
On my first visit just a few weeks ago, the veal Marsala I ordered was excellent! I ordered the Max chicken this time and I was disappointed. The chicken was dry and I didn’t really taste the stuffing. I’ll try something different next time.
Amazing food and amazing service! Will definitely return
had a nice evening good music food and service! We will go back again as it has a great location and fun place to hang out on a Saturday night!
Waitress Gabrielle one of the best waitresses I have ever had. Made the evening. The entertainment was awesome. Great to dine fun. Our friend from out of town and a vegetarian. We are paleo. Lots of choices for both.truly a wonderful dining experience
Always a great experience. We ate outside and it was very relaxing. The music was a bit loud inside.
The noise level was quiet because we ate early on Sunday evening. Sara has a great voice! We had an awesome experience. Staff were amazing! Of the 4 of us only 1 had eaten at Max before. We all enjoyed our meals. Great flavours, quality ingredients & an obvious love of cooking for others! The restaurant was very confident at meeting the needs of a family member who is anaphylactic to shellfish. Thank you for a great experience!
After hearing and reading so many great things about Max, I was incredibly disappointed with our experience on Saturday.
The menu, while "eclectic", was void of nearly anything one would expect to see for a hot summer night's meal. Lots of heavier meat and/or fried dishes. Very few meatless options, not even a gazpacho for soup of the day, which would have been a no-brainer for a "global cuisine" joint on a day that was about 30C.
The wine list is pedestrian. Straight out of the highest traffic aisles of the LCBO general list section. I did find one relatively interesting white -- a Gruner Veltiner. The host/owner brought it to our table on the patio (on a warm evening) and said he'd be back with an ice bucket. After about 10 mins, I asked our server , who happened to have an empty one in her hand, and she put it down on our table and placed the bottle in it-- without any ice. How is a cold bottle of wine going to stay cold in a clear, room-temp plastic sleeve?
While our server was taking our order -- literally as I was telling her my order -- the owner/host interrupted with some "urgent" piece of information he had to convey to her. He didn't even say excuse me first, just interrupted. I was shocked.
As for positives, we both ordered pasta, which was good and serving sizes generous. The patio was nice and the entertainment was great.
At the end of the night, the bill came and, after about 10 mins, I finally had to go inside to find our server to pay and get on our way.
The food and service was excellent! None of us had been there before and I know I will return! I would highly recommend Max Resto Lounge to everyone. I look forward to going back, perhaps for lunch next time, as I have several lady friends that I meet for lunch.
I hope to return for dinner with my “honey”. Maybe he’ll pay the bill.....?
I was there to celebrate a birthday with a foodie friend. We tried the taster menu and she was suitably impressed and raved about the 1505 Shrimp. Our server, Gabrielle, went above and beyond to provide excellent, very friendly service. There was lovely live entertainment and, as our visit happened to be on the Canada Day weekend, the night was topped off with fireworks and a complimentary liqueur in honour of the birthday celebration. Overall it was a great evening and I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We had a wonderful lunch at Max last week. though there is no longer a dedicated lunch menu there is still much to choose from. Two of our party had the omelette special of the day served with a green salad. Plentiful and great value. I had the house green salad with the addition of grilled shrimp. Delicious! Our server Moira was attentive without being overbearing. We lingered after lunch and despite not having dessert we were not pressured to vacate our table. All in all an excellent experience.
