What a great place! We had a pre-selected menu for a business meeting and it was really good! We had a small private room for 20 and it was just right. The serves was very good. The chef uses unique flavors to blend and create really good tasting food.

This is an over priced bistro, the waiters have an attitude that they would prefer to be some where else rather than wait on the customers. The food is good but for the Price it isn't Great! I have asked other locals they feel the same way......

Cafe Maxx has always been a favorite but air had not been in lately. The space is smallish but very comfortable. Service was perfect and the meal was delicious. I recommend the Brussel sprouts and tuna sushi pizza to start. Everyone loved their meal from filet to snapper to my favorite...the Hog Snapper. Definitely will come back as soon as... More

We were recommended to go here by a friend's friend. It took more than 40 min to get our meals after ordering. The petite fillet mignon was delicious but everything else was mediocre to poor. My kids didn't eat their meals at all but the worst part was that we were still charged for their meals. Any decent "high end"... More

We were looking for something we haven't tried before and Cafe´ Maxx was in the perfect location for us meeting. It was not very busy but we went on a week night. The shrimp and pumpkin risotto is RIDICULOUS! It was too good. The taco appetizer paled in comparison but was still good. Entrees were enjoyed by all. The Churrasco... More

Despite the facelift of the shopping center where it's located, Cafe Maxx is starting to show its age. But let's call it classic. The food is always excellent. The service always attentive. This is not a pretentious restaurant that grabs you by the hair with unusual combinations of ingredients and museum quality presentations of food. Cafe Maxx is more like... More

Maybe a Friday night when friends go out and decompress may not be the best night to bring a date for intimate dining, but THIS WAS NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME, but I see it may be for some. But if some raucous bit loud folks having a good time cheer your heart like it does me, then you can... More

My wife and I tried this place as part of the Sunny.org dining out experience. I was expecting small portions but in an upscale place. The venue is very nice and the portions were so big we had to take some home. Highly recommend the Bacon Mac n Cheese as well as the NY Strip Steak.

Sorry to write this but not so great. We don't come here often but when we do we drive an hour to get here. We came with one other couple and we were seated at a six top so my husband went over to the host and asked for a different table and he laughed in his face. Literally the... More
