Nice spot down at end of wharf market. Seated promptly at around 12:30. Unfortunately, waited was pretty helpless and not interested in serving us. Took several minutes to get our drinks. We ordered the daily lunch specials. 10 minutes later brought our soup. After no...More

We were in town for a few days after a cruise and had two meals at Maximilien -- dinner and the next day Sunday brunch, on June 25, at noon. Dinner was excellent; brunch would have been, too, were it not for an unfortunate service...More
