I was really looking forward to coming to this restaurant and had it planned for quite a while for myself and a group of friends. It was really quiet and the food came relatively quick. Three out of four of my friends found their meals to be underwhelming. They said it was okay but not the best they’ve had. My flatbread appeared to be really good when I got it. Once I was eating my second piece I spotted something white on the end of it as I was bringing it to my mouth. I looked a little bit closer and there was a white FEATHER cooked into the flatbread. I put it down and told the waiter about it. They were really apologetic and even sent the manager over. I had completely lost my appetite and was so grossed out that once they offered me something else I just said no thank you. I was really disappointed with Maxx’s. I had high hopes and I don’t think it’s at the level it should be at. I was so severely grossed out I will not be returning.

What made our experience so delightful was the servers: Ilana (lunch) and Conrad ( dinner). They are both just delightful, helpful, thoughtful, courteous and thorough (attended to the fact that we are celiac). Thank you!!

Booked this venue for the purpose of enjoying brunch not realizing that the brunch is over at 12 which is pretty uncommon. We decided to stay and order from the lunch menu, unfortunately it was very disappointing. Flat bread was nothing special, veal sandwich which was a signature item wasn’t anything special, the healthy option salad had no taste and the red cabbage leaves were old and didn’t taste good. I was expecting a better experience considering the place it operated by Peter and Paul’s which are amazing in the hospitality industry.
It was an experience but I wouldn’t go there again.
Staff were amazing

The restaurant was very nice, great view and great atmosphere but the portions were pretty small and the food wasn’t as great as I was hoping for. The burger bun was soaked through from all the grease and the pasta portions were small and relatively plain. Overall a good experience but not as great as we were hoping.

We thoughly enjoyed Maxx's Kitchen, we went for Christmas day Dinner. Although it was a bit more expensive than alternatives, they were able to take our booking on short notice and was a very nice experience throughout. There was a delay with one of my friends meals in that I had finished before he had started which was very messy. The host did feel very bad and gave us a round of drinks to make up for it. I felt that it was not a common occurrence and normally food arrived together.

The food was exquisite!

My husband ordered the veggie burger and upgraded his salad to Caesar salad without bacon
The salad came with bacon and two bugs crawling on top
We let the waiter know and he was apologetic
My husband was too grossed out so he asked for green salad instead
After we paid we realized that we were charged for the upgraded salad price and not the green salad
Overall price was not worth the food especially if cleanliness is missing :/
What kind of fine dining place don’t wash the lettuce?!
Will not return

Responded on December 21, 2019

Dear Shamsz, This was painful to read;we wholeheartedly apologize!I have spoken to the chef as the lettuce must be cut before washing as per our standards to prevent such issues. I have also reviewed this terrible scenario with our team, reminding them what should have happened in the kitchen and later, to properly appease and compensate you for this highly unwelcome experience. I have sent you a private message to follow up personally. Hoping to speak with you soon, Jacob Park Director of F&B

Overall, very good. My fiancé and I got the Nonnas veal sandwich - very tasty. However, I did have a problem with the staff. On multiple occasions we were asked if our plates could be cleared - while there was still half a sandwich/fries- we felt totally rushed. Definitely do not recommend this restaurant if you are trying to have a relaxing dinner.

this was a three-generation brunch prior to Cirque Soleil. The waiter was very good when approaching the youngest of the party (ages 5 & 7). And was equally pleasant & informative re the menu choices for the rest of us. Everyone ordered something different and everyone quite enjoyed their meal.
The brunch menu is varied & interesting, and the view out over the lake is special. Would definitely go again - and BTW - if you are attending a nearby event: eat at Maxx's, comp your parking and walk there.

Dear KarenK, We are happy to hear you will be joining us again in the future! Thank you for informing us about your fish course. There is an oil-based dressing drizzled across the plate for our Salmon dish. If you would like to try the dish again, I would suggest requesting light sauce, or we would be more than happy to put the sauce on the side. We want you to be a customer for life, and we are willing and able to adapt to special requests! Kind regards, Jacob Park Director of Food and Beverage

Dear TVInny, I was saddened to hear you did not enjoy your visit. On busy nights during the event season,we implemented a Showtime Menu to help improve the speed of service and quality during very high demand times, when people needed to get in and out quickly. Clearly, this did not succeed in producing the intended effect when you visited. We have made vast improvements since your visit, and I would like to connect with you. I will send you a private message as well. Kind Regards, Jacob Park

I had the mouthed watering lamp chops and my date had the Cornish hen. We had also 2 appetizers, the fog flat bread was very unique and we had spinach artichoke dip which was pretty good. The dessert was good too. Defiantly will come back to this place again. On top of that the view was beautiful. Thanks for great experience
