Have visited Maxes on a couple of occasions for wine tasting and more recently had the pleasure of having lunch there. Wine is amazing and the food was nothing short of amazing. Not a cheap dining experience but well worth it for special occasions.

At Max's it took 2 hours to complete 3 courses, poor timing from the kitchen resulting in lots of tables with no food.

Our son took us here for Sunday lunch as a mother's day treat. The waiter was friendly and very helpful. The food was wonderful and tasty. The view was a bonus. the only thing was for Sunday lunch you had to have 3 courses which was pricey but worth it.

I took a group here of about 20 we had the three course option with matching wines. Look it was just average some food items were fantastic and others were pretty average. It didn’t help that they were understaffed so we would get the wine after finishing the course it was designated for. Also the restaurant isn’t connected to the... More

We had a wonderful lunch today. The new menu is superb. I had the wagyu beef and others had the duck. It was all cooked to perfection and the 'chocolate' dessert was a showstopper. Fantastic. Throughout our afternoon, Gary, the maitre'd, ensured that we had everything we needed at all times and engaged with us in a genuine way. His... More
