But not like it was in the old days - now caters to groups and is exceptionally expensive nevertheless worth a visit.

We wanted for once to try out the famous Maxim's in Paris. What a disappointment! The sole Pierre Cardin wasn't available, even though we were the first guests in the restaurant that evening. Instead, we were told by the waiter to order the other sole-option...More

Go to look around...but do not order food! You can say you were there...but were smart enough to not eat! Went in to escape the cold weather on a walk...not a warming environment!

We have been at Maxim's twice in the past, first time in 1983. It was the birthday of my wife and we would like to remember the past. The restaurant gives the impression of been poorly maintained needing a renovation but Maxim's atmosphere is still...More

If I didn’t know any better I would imagine it was a comedy sketch. Food almost inedible, atmosphere tired and drained. Waiters horrible. Michelin prices for a dreary joke. It felt like a parody of itself. Do not go!

My wife and I saved the best for last: Maxim's. What a rich history, now owned by Pierre Cardin; it was gorgeous, vintage, and seductive. The quality of the food, the presentation of it, the attentiveness of the staff, all first rate by themselves, but...More

We have been to many good and excellent restaurants, some Michelin starred some not, so we are not phased by high prices and not easily pleased by the quality of service and food served. We had for years planned to visit Maxim's 'one day' and...More

Restaurant a part of Paris history since the 1800's. I literally promised myself I would eat there almost 40 years ago! The waiters greeted us in tuxedos and and warmth of a perfect Frenchman. We shared Bavettines aux champignons for an appetizer. I don't eat...More

Response from NYNJSPORTZFAN | Reviewed this property |
Yes, there is a bar. On their website it says the restaurant is closed Sundays and Mondays, and for lunch (except for groups of 40 or more). So, I’m presuming no breakfast, lunch, nor brunch.
