We've been to Max downtown several times over the last year. It always proves to be quite great. No matter what you order on the menu, it's always top notch. Service is always good and the food is very, very good. I normally get steak and it's always perfectly cooked. I've also had fish and it too was excellent. We usually valet park and that seems the most convenient, especially in the winter. We also enjoyed live music in the bar – but I'm not sure that's still available. Great atmosphere in both the restaurant and the bar. If you're looking for a great place (especially for a special event) with a wonderful atmosphere and outstanding food, Max Downtown is the place to go.

Very tasty brisket, but I can't say that the pretense was worth it. The restaurant is long on pretense and the food is good, but not that good.

Had an amazing Friday evening dinner in this lovely venue. As stated previously, not a cheap date, but worth every penny.
The nicest part of the evening to me was looking around at people engaged in talking and enjoying excellent service and wonderful food. A fine dining experience as is should be. It was very nice and refreshing to be in an environment where the company of friends, family and fantastic fare were being appreciated fully.
