My second time to Max Resto. The service was excellent. A couple of negatives. One I went to their website and had already decided on my entree before arriving only to find that the website menu had not been updated in months. Second the entertainer had been either over served or really should not have been performing. He didn't know the words to songs and a couple of times started to sing a song that didn't match the music.

First time and really enjoyed it. Really unique and varied menu which I liked. We had Russian and Indonesian main courses and a really great appetizer sampler.
Ambience was great and even with live music it will really muted creating a lovely atmosphere for a really enjoyable meal with my better half.

Overall a very enjoyable experience. When we arrived the music was a bit too loud and we thought what will it be like when the live entertainment starts, but she was excellent, so enjoyable. The food was mostly very good and well presented. The seasoning on the blackened shrimp and salmon was too salty. And having small little pieces of cheese with the caprese salad was disappointing.

We ordered the Tasting menu with wine option. Both enjoyed the variety and quality of each course. The service was impeccable. Chef Barry personally served one course and we were delighted to be able to express our appreciation directly to him. The wines were a delicious compliment to the meal. We will definitely return and hope to share this wonderful experience with friends.

Tasty food. Good value. Excellent service and wonderful entertainment. We are regulars. The only negative was the glare from the window opposite our table. The sun was not yet down and the shades do not block enough of the glare. Once the sun had set tge atmosphere was top notch.

Super food and ambience, gf items on the menu.
Noise level too high and drowns out live music. Difficult to have a decent conversation.

Their focus is too push you out as quickly as possible. They literally forced us to order entrees before it got busy. Not finished our meals and they were trying to pick it up before we finished. We’re used to going out for a nice long dinner. We were done in an hour spent $140 dollars. Not going back. The food was good but it wasn’t great. Service was similar to fast food.

My wife and I had dinner at Max Resto on Feb 23rd, 2019. The restaurant was packed. The service was excellent as was the food. And the cocktails were perfect and 'generous'. This was our first visit to this restaurant but it will not be our last. We will be back with friends.

The food was great and I am vegan so the chef/kitchen accommodated by making dishes specifically for me and they made the garlic bread with no cheese on one side. Very thoughtful & food was fab!! The two women who seated & served us were fabulous. One having to text correct directions onto friends phone when I was lost. Then giving me tasting of wine. Just really friendly & helpful!!

Julie awesome waitress. Remembered us from last time. We really enjoy the entertainment. Service was timed just right. We really enjoy it here. We bring friends often who are visiting and they rave about it and want to return when back in town. We have referred many people. It is a hidden gem in my neighbourhood
