My waiter Michael was outstanding!!! He made my daughters birthday celebration a great one!!
We love this place! Food is great and although service is normally mediocre, we found service this time to be amazing. The tall gentleman (didn’t catch his name) Maitre d at the podium was super nice and accommodating in getting us a wonderful table after we asked for a better one or two :)
The atmosphere was perfect and the food was amazing! Service was pretty quick too!
So much potential, but not impressed at all
Customer service was great. Very small food portions.
This is a tourist trap with bad service! Was recommended by a friend and I would not recommend it to others!
Great food & we loved our waiter! It was a bit pricy for breakfast food but that was expected. Great drinks too.
A couple of friends and I went to Max for dinner. We’ve been here before so it was good to go back after a while.
Love this place!! And especially the desserts! We will be back!
Great lunch at noon - not busy at that time, gets busier around 1pm
Food is very good, large portions and excellent hot cocoa served in a “hug mug” :)
Will go back for dessert!
Overall, no reason for me to return, unless (highly unlikely) I came with a few friends for a chocolate dessert of some kind. My friend & I both ordered salads. Mine was soggy though it tasted ok. I ordered coffee with my meal which arrived barely warm, but our server promptly replaced it with hot coffee. My friend described her salad as also just ok. On a previous visit the salad she ordered was excellent, which is why we agreed to meet there for lunch. The music was loud even though it was 2:30 on a weekday and we asked them to lower it. The room itself was cold. Our server was very sweet, and I probably should have rated the service one star higher than I did.
We made reservations after a Broadway show and we tried the martinis, fondue, pizza and crepes. The fondue by far was our favorite. No one was able to finish the martini. We were oozing chocolate by the end of our time there. It was very crowded - no way you were getting in without a reservation. It was loud and our service was only acceptable, not amazing by any means. We still had a great time and the chocolate was amazing. I forgot my credit card and went back the next day at lunch to pick it up and the restaurant wasn't even 1/3 full. The hostess said that weekends are brutal so I recommend a week night if you can swing it. Do not attempt a weekend night without a reservation and do not plan to be in a hurry. The service would not accommodate a tight schedule.
Needs to be cleaned. Perhaps due to traffic in restaurant floors were littered. Bathrooms were gross!!!! Theme was nice
From the service to the food we couldn’t have asked for anything better, the Italian think hot chocolate and the smoothie is a must have😍😍
It was a wonderful pre-birthday celebration. Just make sure you ask the server to get the sparkly candle or you’ll get a regular candle which is not picture worthy lol Otherwise amazing food and great place to chill with friends and family or a date.
Super busy restaurant, server was nice but too overloaded. Bathrooms where disgusting, worse than a gas station bathroom!!
Recently went to celebrate a birthday. Made a reservation for an early dinner and still had to wait 45 minutes. The restaurant is extremely loud and over crowded. The dinner menu is very limited and average. I would recommend only going for dessert, not on a Saturday night and expect to wait.
