Nice atmosphere and decent food
Felt pushed to order higher priced wines

Not the best first impression. Server was slow with getting drinks and forgot them the second round. Fries were cold and had to be returned. Came out hot but undercooked the second time. Overall nothing special.

Really extensive lunch menu including great healthy, vegetarian and vegan options. The king oyster mushroom entree with lentils is stellar. Service was very attentive too. I'd definitely come back!

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.

We took our one year old son to Maxx’s Kitchen for his birthday dinner. All of the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Made it a delight to go out with a baby. Would definitely return!

The fish was very greasy which was disappointing, however, we would give it another try.

Would have given Overall 4 except we were 2 adults and a teenager, all women, and were offered a poor table in a corner. I had made a reservation. We requested a change and were given a better table. Prices were expensive but they were in line with other luxury hotels. Service was excellent. Food excellent.

The location was great for us because we were going to an event at Ontario Place. That would be the only reason I would go back. The service was outstanding, but the food wasn't great especially for the price of the item menus. Noise level was very loud and made conversation a bit difficult.

Went for a birthday dinner before a Cirque show. Menu was reduced to half the normal selection. Prices were high and food quality was moderate to poor. I won’t be going back.

I liked the place a lot and my date also enjoyed it. Very friendly staff and our server was amazing and very helpful and professional. The food was great. 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

We felt the alcohol was way to pricey. The food was good. Main courses were a tad expensive as well for what they were.

We are so happy that we found Maxx's! Our server, Jake, was attentive and helpful, the steak was cooked perfectly (I'm very picky) and the atmosphere was trendy casual which is just the right amount of fancy for our casual style. I would easily recomment Maxx's to a friend and I look forward to going back for seconds.

Four of us decided to eat at Maxx's Kitchen before going to Cirque based on the reviews I read and boy, are we glad that we did! The food was very tasty and the service was fantastic! The view was nice and the price point was great. It was a little noisy for our liking but we would definitely eat there again!

No real atmosphere. Average food quality. Ordered lamb chops medium and sent them back three times - still cooked well-done. Generally underwhelming.

We went to rascal flats concert. The server told us to have our friends park at the hotel there as they stamp the ticket and then they could park for free instead of at the parking lot for the concert. Thanks Conrad it really helped. Food was excellent.

Our appetizer took so long then the meal came immediately. The waiter said the kitchen burnt it. Sounds strange to me. Then the hostess validated my parking but when I went to pay for parking it was not validated. So I paid $30 parking. Not the best experience.

Our service was definitely not what we had expected. The most upsetting part of the dinner was the fact we order apps and were told that they would come out first and our mains later. We get our apps and literally 7 mins later our mains come out. It was a manager that brought them over and we pointed at our table and said we just got our apps. He just blankly looked at us and said would you like me to place these on the other side of the table. Unbelievable, he could see we just got our apps, so why wouldn’t he own the fact that the kitchen pushed out the food too fast. Also so weird being told that it was good to get our order in cause the kitchen gets backed up and it can take over an hour ? When true rest of our party came they were told if they wanted to add chicken to their salad, it would take min 30-45 mins. Totally an unfavourable experience and it has us considering cancelling an upcoming reservation at the hotel. There was clearly no drive to ensure customers were having a good experience. Brutal that it was known that our table was messed up and no supervisor came over to try and make things better.

This was my first time at Maxx's kitchen. I loved the location (right on Lakeshore with a view of the Lake). The food was delicious. The service was incredible. Our server was fantastic and very attentive to our needs. The atmosphere was energetic but classy. They even have a lovely patio if the weather permits. I would definitely go back.

We’ve now had Konrad as our server a couple of times, and he is really good. Remembered us from before, very pleasant etc.

My only complaint this time was that this time, when we had our parking ticket validated, apparently it wasn’t done correctly. We ended up having to pay 30.00 and when I went into the hotel to inquire, they told me they couldn’t refund me and that I would have to contact the parking lot company. I called the company and they said they couldn’t refund me, that I had to go back to the restaurant. What hassle! I won’t be doing that, because I live in Niagara. Too bad.

We got in, last minute and pretty late (like 10pm) and even though they were closing soon the 4 of us got an amazing meal!
Steak Frites, Seafood pasta, just wonderful. And the desert was spectacular!

Would definitely return!

BEWARE- quite pricey but we thought it was certainly worth it
