Disappointed, expected better, thought of Maxim's in Paris. Not associated with. Had veal , either poor quality or poor preparation. No ambiance, dark. Would not recommend. $$$$ not even a worth a $$

my wife and I arrived to a dark and somewhat oppressive decor. A few other tables had diners, the restaurant was less than half full on a Saturday evening and we proceeded to view the menu. Only expensive French wines or Chinese wine was offered, the menu was small but appeared from the photos rather good. A candle was lit... More

This is the first review of my life, but this restaurant was so bad, that I just had to invest the time to write it. Let's just say that everything that could be bad in a restaurant they do it and do it very well. The food is terrible, the service is worst (they are super unfriendly, even for Chinese... More

An integral part of the Chong Wen Man Hotel and originally associated with Maxims in Paris. The decor is Parisian Art Nouveau which looks fine during the day but dark and depressing at night from poor lighting. The menu gives promises that are not delivered. The seafood we received was on the bland side and a little dry, crying out... More

The decor is uninviting with a very dark scheme; dark carpet, dark walls with dark pictures, dark furniture, even the white tablecloth looks small on top of another dark brown tablecloth underneath. The food is mediocore! The wine list pathetic! And worst of all, the service is so subpar even by Chinese fine dining standards that is unacceptable. I've been... More

Maxims delivers for everyone. Located in the heart of the Chong Wen District in Beijing, Maxims offers high quality fine dining at a reasonable price. Service is what one would expect from an upscale restaurant. Guest of the Chong Wen Men Hotel receive complementary buffet style breakfast at the restaurant. It offers food that will please both Westerner and Chinese.

This Maxim's de Paris is located in Solona Shopping Area. Fantastic location and the restaurant is brilliant. I absolutely love the place. Great place to come and relax and have a glass of wine, beer and enjoy the food. Sure it is a wee bit expensive, but the staff more than make up for it. Aida who runs the bar... More

The food is very good. The service was excellent. It is expensive, but the ambiance is wonderful! Also, make sure you understand the tipping culture in China.

Incredible interior, great menu a real splurge but worth it. Lets you get away from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Beijing and escape back to the atmosphere of Paris in the 30's. I loved it!
