The food was fabulous; the view wonderful. Our waitress was attentive. The lemon drops were great. We enjoyed meeting friends after shopping at Pike Place Market.

Maximilien is located in Pike Place Market just beyond the fishmongers. The restaurant is undeniably French. The maitre'd greets everyone with a French accent. Unfortunately, he ignored my party waiting for his attention, even tending to someone that he should have known had rudely stepped...More
