Sorry. No idea how this place is still in business. I literally know no one who goes here anymore. If you are going to drop money like that around MetroWest Boston, go to Coach Grille, Capital Grille, etc. There is no ambiance here and the food is so overdone in an attempt to be trendy.

Very nice Italian/Thai restaurant. The curtains make the restaurant feel upscale and keeps noise levels in check. The Host/Hostess are quick to take your jacket and seat you and the entrance way is welcoming. Waiters very attentive. Would highly recommend the gnocchi/lobster dish, be prepared to take part of the entrée portion home with you as it is very generous!... More

Fantastic meal, had dinner with my husband for his birthday. Loved the Mushroom Risotto Cake and the truffle pasta. Made the choice for this restaurant based on others experience and were not disappointed. The only downside was the temperature, it was cold. The atmosphere is very cold as well. The food was excellent!

Having eaten at Maxwell's 148 previously several years ago, my wife and I decided to return for what we had hoped would be another excellent meal. That was not to be the case. We enjoyed the Calamari Fritti appetizer (Crispy calamari, cherry peppers, parsley. lemon tartar sauce). We were served an ample portion of quite tasty, slightly greasy calamari and... More

The menu had so many delicious sounding choices that it was very hard to decide. We tried a wide variety of things at our table and all were excellent. The carpaccio and foie gras appetizers were particularly good. The trout was perfectly done. The bar was very well stocked, including some house special blends, although they were out of a... More

We had a reservation for a weekday night to have a romantic birthday dinner there, the drinks are good and the food is also very good with big portions but the prices are high. The atmosphere is very cozy and quit. They gave a parking behind the building.

Good not excellent. Overpriced for what it is. We may have arrived on bad night, but we didn't get anything to drink for 30 minutes. Owner had to go 'next door, for the wine we selected. Barman was backed up. Asked the waiter what the soup of the day was, he didn't know. Asked if the burger was Kobe beef,... More

I usually like to go to more moderately priced restaurants, but my boyfriend wanted to try Maxwell's, so we did. Our meals were tasty, portions were decent, and the menu offerings were several. There was no view to speak of, but the dining room was well-appointed. Our server was very pleasant. I must say though, that I was saddened to... More

So sad to write a less than favorable review. I want this restaurant to succeed - should be neighborhood gem. In terms of ambience, do not let the very plan brick building sitting next to a gas station deter you from entering - the dining room is gracious and inviting, and tables are arranged with interest and elegance. Hostess was... More
