We had a party of 6 celebrating my husband's birthday and the experience was great. As always the food was excellent, Ricardo, our server, was professional and efficient. The menu is pricey, so we tend to save Cafe Maxx for special occasions and have never been disappointed. They also brought out a beautiful dessert with Happy Birthday on the plate for my husband.
Best pepper corn steak in town.
Cafe Maxx never dissapoints!
Best restaurant in Fl
The staff did not wear masks.
have had many great experiences at cafe maxx. this was not up to par for them. seemed to be understaffed and the waiter was apologizing to numerous tables. they had two or three items on the 9/5/21 dated menu that were not available so why include on the menu? crab/ lobster cakes app was very good as was the beef carpaccio. my wife had scallop and shrimp risotto which was also very good.
entrees came out quickly so no issue with slow service in fact they came almost too quickly after the apps were cleared. my medium rare bone in ribeye steak ($80.00) looked fantastic but was closer to rare, which normally would be fine with me. it was so tough and full of tendon and connective tissue that i had a hard time removing the meat from the bone and it was tough throughout. i ordered a glass of duckhorn merlot and was told they couldn't find any and if they didn't find some the waiter would bring me a replacement red at no charge. ten minutes later i got a glass of red wine and was charged for the merlot they didn't have which i let slide. to top it off it was my wife's birthday which we included in the open table reservation and the waiter never asked whose birthday it was and wished me a happy birthday repeatedly.
we will certainly go back as this was the first less than excellent experience we have had at cafe maxx. i will chalk it up to covid related staffing issues, and Oliver was not working in the kitchen on a Sunday night, which could set up the kitchen staff to experience a few hiccups.
Jane is super!
The restaurant is always enjoyable The food is consistently good and fresh . We always have a nice night dining here with our family ...
Great food coupled with a professional friendly staff just makes Cafe Maxx a great dining experience.
Food and service were amazing!!!
Disappointed in pork tenderloin entre
As usual, some of the best food in South Florida but $55 for an entree while surrounded by people in shorts and tee shirts just doesn’t sit well w me. Service was good, but rushed, especially since the restaurant was relatively empty.
We ALWAYS enjoy Xafe.Maxz. Both food and service were outstanding. This is a great place to dine for any occasion.
We loved the experience, and it was more quiet then we were expecting. But no one complained and we loved the children running around … respectfully!!
Best brunch ever.
Very good unique menu but expensive. very nice for a special occassion
The restaurant was packed and very lively. Our table was ready for us when we arrived. Dinner was delicious and our server was gracious.
Thanks for a nice evening.
The food and service were outstanding! My wife had snapper and I had the triple tail. The snapper was off the hook and nudged out the triple tail by a hair. Both however were best in class! We split the “Tuna Pizza” and my comment is “Wow, just Wow!!!”
These guys really know how to cook and bring the goods!
As an additional comment, the server was fantastic and even the kid parking cars was pleasant and hustled above and beyond.
The only minor miss is the ambiance and ventilation. We were in a booth 2 away from the kitchen and at times the cooking smell was a little annoying. The concept of seeing the kitchen and the refrigerator case is ok but it was old looking as were the booths and overall vibe. However a very minor detail in the scheme of how great the food and service was.
Overall What an incredible experience and will become a more often go to for us! Bravo!
2nd time this month at our favorite restaurant, this time we brought our friends to celebrate being neighbors for over 25 years. The food was exceptional and the evening was a delight.
always a great experience , great food , intimate setting .
Always an amazing dinner! Love it there
First time here. Loved the menu, the food was wonderful, excellent service. It is obviously very popular and they don’t need to mess with success, but I would love to see them at a different location, perhaps one with a view.
Food always fantastic…as was the service.
My main complaint was I made this reservation with Open Table and was asked if we were celebrating any special occasion. I noted it was my SIL, Susan’s birthday and requested something special done for her.
Dessert arrived with NO MENTION OF HER BIRTHDAY nor ACKNOWLEDGING MY REQUEST.
When I do this with other Open Table reservations, they always bring a special dessert for the person celebrating.
I was very very disappointed!
We sat outside. So it was noisy. Maybe setting up artificial plant sound barriers or something would make it more aesthetic. Food and service was awesome though.
Anniversary and dine out menu!
Excellent food. We shared the ahi tuna tartar pizza appetizer, beet salad, res snapper and creme brûlée. All very delicious. I’ll go back for the tuna pizza!
However - not one single person ( staff nor patrons) were wearing masks. I’m sorry but I’ll have to wait to return.
Always an amazing experience at Cafe Maxx.
We opted for the 3 course dine out Lauderdale menu. I chose the caviar pie for appetizer. I'm still thinking about it now. Was absolutely awesome. Can't wait to go back and just have appetizers. Others at table had the octopus app. which I tasted. Very good. Main course was the snapper. Enjoyed that as well. Dessert was carrot cake. Again very good. Definitely will be returning.
I decided to check it out for restaurant month as I am in never in that area. The server was very sweet, the food was okay, and the place was intimate. Typically at other restaurants they tend to ask if you are celebrating something which I was (it was my bday) but they didn’t ask me that.
We had not been to cafe max in over 6 years and we decided to go back because we never had a bad meal there. Well the food continues to be outstanding , but the service could be better and unfortunately they seated us in the back again, as we were eating our salads, i felt a drip on my arm. It was the air conditioner and so a bucket was brought over and by the time we left it was half full of water. Now, let me say they did comp us for the food but not the drinks, and the reason I am writing this , because i typically do not give this much comment is that the manager never once bothered to come to our table and apologize. Not once! As we left we mentioned that too him and he responded with that we were loud and had disturbed his other customers , total of two table by the way. First we were not loud 2nd the place is loud anyway in general but to not come to our table? Really for a restaurant like this where the bill in general would be for two at least 250.00 ?
Anyway, I will probably not be back again at least for a few months , maybe the manager had a bad night and next time he might be a bit nicer and more customer friendly.
Special menu for month of August had excellent choices and a reason to have a night out at the Maxx.
Always one of the finest dining experiences in South Florida.
Server remembered me from months ago and was so helpful. I’m vegan and the chef will always accommodate and make a special dish for me. Drinks and service are always good and ambiance is very nice. I will say it’s a little pricey so we don’t go there too often but definitely will go back again.
Cafe Maxx is the best restaurant the food the service is the best.
Food was great. Service was great. We would come back for sure
It was great! The serving staff was attentive and the food was good.
This never disappoints. Excellent food; however, it is on the pricey side.
Always a great place for dining
It’s always great when we eat at Cafe Maxx!
