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.
Wonderful night out, intimate setting, excellent service.
I have eaten there on 4 occasions and have been very pleased every time, great food and choices, plus excellent service.
We love this place! Cozy and friendly with soft live music. Great date spot! Elegant but not extravagant. A real neighborhood gem!
Blackened salmon cooked perfectly,delicious
Vegetables cooked perfectly,delicious
highly recommend this restaurant
Wonderful food, menu and service!! The food was amazing and the waiter was awesome!
A hidden gem.
Our server was extraordinarily funny and very engaging.
Relaxing and enjoyable, especially with the live music. Have yet to have a bad meal here. This has become my “go to” spot in this area.
Went for lunch with old friend and everything was perfect. We shared 3 small plates and all were delicious. I dare you not to lick the plate of the 1505 Shrimp small plates. Amazing!!
As always a great evening & exceptional food quality.
Could be a little more attentive with the service but better than most. Dinner rolls were pathetic ; beet salad was a good choice ; as was the tempura perch main. Enjoyed the live music provided by local talent. Will continue to support and would recommend.
Everything about the evening at Max Resto Lounge was wonderful! Great food, service and ambience! The owner was so friendly and very helpful :) It was a great Mother's Day dinner ❤️
Second visit....tried different menu items than the first time. So far, every dish has been top notch.
Early Mother's Day dinner for 7 people. Food was excellent, and the selection was great even for picky teenagers! The musician was excellent - sounded very much like Norah Jones.
We thoroughly enjoyed Mother's Day at Max. It is a real gem amongst all the chain restaurants around. The food was wonderful, our waitress very accommodating as we had a guest who had to eat gluten free. We will certainly return.
Excellent food. Good entertaining guitarist and singer. We could hear her well and the music did not drown out personal conversation. However, I think we had the one table where you could not see her at all.
Restaurant short staffed that night, however we were quickly acknowledged. First drink order slow to be taken but excellent knowledgeable and friendly service after that.
Look forward to my next opportunity to dine there.
Terrific gem in Burlington, Ontario. Exceptional menu, with key parts (ie pasta) prepared on site. Love the low key entertainment in the evening at the perfect level...loud enough to hear, but, not too loud to impede conversation. Tremendous service, and, I believe great value for the price....you can't go wrong here!!
Impressed with everything. From the vibe of the room; outstanding service from Gabriella; the food was exceptional and fairly priced; and the live music supplied by a young Sarah Mills put it over the top. My new favourite place to eat in Burlington. Definitely will be back.
A great restaurant and an overall lovely experience. Service was stellar, food was excellent with varied choices and the bottle of wine we wanted wasn't available so they upgraded the bottle but charged us the same price. I definitely recommend this restaurant!
Great evening with entertainment!
We had an excellent meal with very good service. I would recommend it to anyone.
We were quite happy with Max, the atmosphere etc. was just what we wanted. Food, drinks, service was fine with one exception.
My wife ordered the steak, medium rare and it came medium. The waitress happily took it back to the kitchen, but a few minutes later the head waiter came back with it and tried to convince her that it really was medium-rare. She refused, and it was taken back and removed from the bill. I don't expect this at all. When one pays $35+ for a steak, it should come as ordered. If the kitchen goofs and overcooks it, that's their problem, and theirs to correct.
Very diverse menu, including a tasting menu with or without wine pairings. Very nice décor, and live music. I have been twice and at least one of the owners was there each time, and both the owner and waitstaff are very attentive.
