Max Resto Lounge Ratings and Reviews
Max Resto lounge is a great "night out " restaurant ,the food is amazing ,I highly recommend
the lobster fettuccine which has nice little chunks of lobster in it ,The jagerschnitzel is tender comes in a great portion and is a delicious meal right down to the spiced red cabbage.
Recently we had the calamari appetizer and it had a spectacular light breading and was the best
I had ever had .The staff take care of you from the moment that you get there until you leave
They are fun , give excellent service and make you feel completely at home .Max's is set up for
both casual and more formal dining and live music really makes for an elegant romantic night.
The prices are very reasonable ,and the caliber of dining is top rate. This is a real gem ,we're glad we found it.
Service was excellent once we entered the restaurant.
Food was delicious and loved the variety of choices.
This was our second experience at Max Resto Lounge and it did not disappoint. The food here is excellent. The jagerschnitzel was wonderful, and so was the bow tie pasta special with shrimp. The staff are very welcoming and attentive and the atmosphere is lovely. The live music was very tasteful and the volume was perfect. This is definitely a neighbourhood gem, and we are planning to go back again. We highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was great. Try the zucchini salad. To die for. There was live entertainment which was great fun and added to the energy of the evening Well worth a visit.
Loved loved loved!!
This is our second time going and this time we brought some friends along. We all enjoyed our food! Excellent tasting menu.
This is a very nice restaurant with great food and ambience. We both ordered the lobster fettuccini as our main dish and it was very good. We shared the chocolate creme brûlée for dessert and it was great. There was a singer playing the piano which was very nice. It was not too loud. The staff are excellent, and I thought the prices were reasonable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a nice evening out.
The night we went we enjoyed live music, and it was great to meet Max and here his thought process behind his wonderfully eclectic menu. Food was fantastic, ambience was great and the service was bang on. Great night, highly recommend, and we'll be back.
I met a friend for lunch. It was most enjoyable, friendly, quiet and good food. Would visit again
Food was good but we waited hours for it. Service was not very good. Although the waitress was nice, we waited for hours for our food. Music was amazing and ambience was good
A great neighbourhood gem. Our second visit and once again, it did not disappoint. Having severe allergies, they were able to adjust my meal accordingly to ensure a safe and yummy dining experience. Love music. Singer was phenomenal. A definite must!
As always, the food and service was fantastic!
There was live entertainment which added to the ambiance.
Highly recommend Max Resto Lounge
Everything was great but there was 1 negative. We had escargot for appetizer & the pastry was hard on the bottom, very difficult to cut. It wasn't as good as we used to get at 1505.
Upsides; very warm inviting atmosphere. Service was excellent. Main menu items tasty with good presentation. So nice to have quiet entertainment during the meal.
Good wine list selections.
Downsides; It was a celebration that was not noted by the hostess and we were sat in the bar at a very small table for 4 of us. We were not there just for appies.
Speaking of appetizers....not appetizing at all. Cooked from frozen preparation. I have purchased them from Fortinos frozen section. All overcooked and dried out. Chicken skewers were so dry I couldn't remove the small....small...chicken bites from the stick. Escargot Michel....pastry had flattened to leven bread consistency...couldnt cut it with a knife and escargot cold and rubbery. No sauce to be found. The Bitterballen? the balls were so dry when we cut them with a knife...they disintegrated! (remember the Christmas Vacation Turkey??! )
I would love to recommend this restaurant to many friends, as they have asked. This is the second time I have been here and am not impressed. I would suggest they really up their game on the menu, starting with the appetizers. It would be a start.
Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great service. Food is always freshly prepared and served with wonderful presentation. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful experience! From the perfect cocktails onwards we thoroughly enjoyed everything. We both chose the tasting menu and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Our server was fantastic and the music was very good - just the right volume.
Food and service was excellent. Was not impressed with the piano/singer.
Great experience. Excellent food, great service, always a pleasure to dine there with family and friends.
Food was fantastic as usual. A few notes: salad was a bit heavy on dressing but otherwise delicious, Indonesian croquettes were surprising and so good, shrimp on pasta were perfect, desserts were a disapppintment though . Moroccan donuts were very chewy, dry and dense, vanilla on brownie tasted freezer burnt. Since it was our anniversary, both desserts were on the house so can't complain too much! :) live music is always great as well. Sarah mills (14 yrs old) is so talented.
Ps - some vegetables on my husband's steak plate would have been nice.
Our first time there and we were impressed. Cozy atmosphere, great food and friendly attentive staff. A young lady was singing and she had a lovely voice, this really adds a nice touch and creates a nice ambiance. Will definitely be back.
Food was not worth what we paid. Sauces tasted like they had corn starch in them. Had live music but much too loud. TV in the background that is distracting.
We were with family for a pre-wedding lunch for some out of town guests...good was great and service was very good but the restaurant wasn't very busy (suburbs at lunchtime)...so hard to comment on dinner service...could be a lot busier and I suspect it is because the food was delicious.
Had dinner with my daughter! We had a couple glasses of wine and we both had pasta. She had a lobster pasta and I had shrimp. Both were very good. The service was great. Will definitely go back!!
Very friendly and attentive staff. Food was delicious.
This was our third visit to Max Resto Lounge. It does not disappoint. Great food and always a good time.
Went to Max Resto Lounge for an anniversary dinner on a Tuesday night. Nice intimate atmosphere. Given a complementary amuse-bouche to start things off. Had the 6 course tasting menu with wine pairings. All courses were fantastic and wines went well with each dish. Beef crokette and veal were both delicious. Owner came to our table and gave us some information on his wine selections - nice touch. Service was great. We will be back - maybe on an evening when they have live music!
We tried the tasting menu this visit. It was EXCELLENT! The wine and food pairings were perfect! Looking forward to the next tasting menu!
Had a great time. Good food, good music and good service and fun.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food and service were excellent. There was a young 14 year old singer with a lovely voice who provided unobtrusive live entertainment. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food without breaking the bank.
Great experience every time I go. Nice place, good food, friendly staff, and live music.
I thought the food was very good, however, my dinner partner was sick as a dog from the food afterwards so that was very disappointing. We both had shrimp so I am not sure why she was sick and I wasn't, although they were 2 different meals. I would go back and try again.
Fantastic entertainment!! Good food, friendly service!! Fun night!
Always nice when greeted by the owner and asked how everything was, gives you the impression that he cares in making his guests happy and comfortable. Lucky to have this restaurant locally.
Excellent food and service - a new favourite for our family . We've been back a few times and will continue to go back. The live music is a wonderful touch .
We had a lovely supper and a great visit with our friend Peter Marino! Very happy with the staff and service.
The food and the service was excellent. We were there on a Saturday night and there was live music.
Definitely planning on going back!
My 2nd visit here and enjoyed just as much as I did on first visit! Love the LIVE entertainment aspect, service good, as is the food-interesting varied menu! I'm new to the neighbourhood, so this restaurant may become the go-to place!
If it wasn't for the service, we would have left this place. The food is okay. One of our guests had a burger that was over salted and burnt. The food generally is much too salty. For what you get, the price is too high. Wine was good. Server was awesome!
A good evening for an in the week get together with friends. The food was very good and with lots of choices.
The night we were there, they had a "special" price on the beer. The soup was very good even on a hot evening. I and one of my friends had the Penne with chicken in a sweet basil tomato sauce. This was delicious. My other friend had a burger with Americana Frites.
Everyone loved chocolate creme Brulee.
The service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
A very good evening
Fabulous restaurant, great food, amazing service. The entertainment was perfect.
