Would not recommend this place. Very slow service, wine was served before water. Was taking a while to bring/refill water. Food was not soo great! Owner and server was not friendly.

I’ve heard such great things, so my husband and I (who have not been on a date night for almost a year) had hoped for a great night out.

When we were arrived we were hardly greeted, a “hello, good evening” would have been nice. We were sat down and then about 5 minutes later we were asked if we were ready to order. No, explanation about the menu (why is was a reduced menu) etc. We ordered drinks and shortly after our app and entre.

On the caprese salad there was hardly any cheese.

The chicken was a tough piece of meat, however the sauce was good. Hubby enjoyed the veal.

We waited too long to order and receive our coffee and cheesecake.

It seemed as though other tables were getting the better service. Told about “special wines” that weren’t on the menu etc.

I wish this would have been a better experience for us. We love a good independently owned restaurant where the quality service is a large part of the experience however Max Resto Lounge fell short.

Absolutely amazing foo and service! Leah was the perfect mix of attentiveness and space. I had the bhami (sp?) and my friend had the special which was linguini Alfredo with jumbo shrimp and asparagus. Both of us LOVED our meal.
The ambiance was lovely and I deeply enjoyed the live music. I will be bs k for sure and highly recommend to others.

Loved it! Our meals were excellent, the service was fantastic and we will definitely be back. It's a fairly mature environment with a upscale but laid back vibe. Barry, the owner who has a great passion for wine, made some excellent pairing recommendations for us. You know it good when u can rave about everything down to the taste of the bread and butter... :) looking forward to our next visit.

Excellent choice, amazing food, great live music (quite enough to still enjoy company). Only dissatisfaction was the Crème Brule...the flavor was great but it was served cold and the top was not crispy, glass like. Definitely will be going back!

Food was great, but the service was lack-luster. The ‘wine man’ as he described himself came over and offered his private stock of wine kept in the back two times. He also shared dinner specials twice as well. We only had contact with our server twice (he was lovely and seemed professional) but the overall experience wasn’t the best. I was excited to dine here as the reviews are excellent, but we did not enjoy the experience as much as we had hoped. Kudos to the kitchen for fantastic food!

I would definitely return. Lots of potential with minor modifications.

#1 Service is excellent, no need to change anything
#2 Food is decent but lacking the wow effect
#3 Ambiance is very good, nice lighting, good spacing between tables, music talent is wonderful, my only issue is the volume, it needs to be reduced by about 25%
#4 value could be amazing if food was a little better and ambiance was a little better

Great staff, warm and welcoming.

If you like a good singer providing the background and good food with better than average value, this is the place to go. The ambience is only OK but it doesn't get in the way of the experience.

Food and ambiance were great. It was incredibly slow to get our food. It took an hour and a half between out apps and our meal because the kitchen was backed up but the owner was great and very apologetic and gave us each a gift card to come back. I will go back for sure but I’ll make sure I have time to spare just in case.

First and foremost they serve great food. The owner/manager (?) is very friendly and makes sure you feel welcomed. The background music was just right. The waitress was delightful. My only issues are minor: I found the prices a tad high and the tables are crammed in pretty tight. Fortunately, the acoustics are fine and you don't really hear the people beside you.

We have been several times and will go back for sure.

My wife and I just moved into the area. We heard alot of great things about this restaurant so we wanted to check it out for ourselves. Loved it. The food and service was amazing. The ambience with the male singer was great. Sang songs from the 60's-80's but not too loud. Perfect background entertainment. They have entertainment every night. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back on our own and with friends.

Max Resto never disappoints!
Great service and food coupled with a great
venue make for the perfect dining experience regardless if you out for a working dinner, casual
meeting with friends or a romantic evening.

It’s easy to see and taste, why this restaurant is one of the best.
