"The vegetarian couscous was very delicious! It was flavorful. The chef forgot to put mushrooms in my couscous though. I inquired about them, and they were brought to me later. So, that was corrected :).
The desserts however were bad. We ordered the Creme brulee and Gateau au Chocolat. The creme brulee was the least tasty I've ever eaten. The flovor wasn't balanced or something. The Gateau au Chocolat was average. On top of that, their portion sizes were too small for $9-10.
Great for meals, but skip dessert."

"I have always wanted to try this restaurant and I finally had the chance to do so a few weeks ago. I thought the main entree was just ok. I honestly think if I ordered a bowl of pho, I would have been happier with the meal. However, the espresso creme brulee was amazing! I love creme brulee, but I've never tried an espresso flavor before, so I was really excited to order it. I am also a coffee flavor lover, so I was expecting a lot from this dessert and it definitely delivered! I thought the service was merely just ok as well. I don't know if the restaurant was just busy or not, but I didn't feel like we got much attention. The location of the restaurant is inside Pike Place and there is a nice view of the waterfront, which I thought was pretty cool, although we were stuck in the corner, since all the ones by the window were taken. I would definitely come back here for the creme brulee, but other than that, I don't think I'll make another trip here."

"We went for Restaurant Week. Had a great view of the sunset over the water, but had to sit outside for it, which was not the most luxurious and comfortable situation ( the chairs are plastic...). Considering that we made a reservation long ago, I was a little miffed. The seafood items ( mussels and fish) were tasty. Although the mussels were the small and unimpressive kind. My date had the cous-cous which was somewhat tasty, but a dumb choice. All items were tasty, but the general feeling was one of slight corner-cutting."

"The was four of us for lunch on a Monday. Made reservations and patio was half full. Went for business lunch and it took over an HOUR to get our food. I work a block away and had to leave before I got my food because of a meeting. Other people were getting their food before us, so I am thinking that maybe the waiter forgot to put in our order. Total was $180 and so I was very disappointed with the service.
Food was delish, though! Got a salad with smoked salmon! SO GOOD!"

"First time dining at Maximilien for Restaurant week and was seated with a wonderful view. Soup and mussels were delicious and plentiful. My wife enjoyed the halibut but the boar stew was so so. Another choice beside vegan would've been good. The wine pairing was tasty. Overall good experience with an attentive and polite server."

"We had the mussels, which were fantastic! Both the quality of shellfish and sauce! Get the bread to soak up the goodness. We then had the halibut, which had a very tasty sauce and the vegetables to cooked perfect. The fish may have been slightly overdone, but was still good. Then we had Espresso Crème Brule which was perfect! Service was reasonable, but nothing special. View is outstanding! I would get the mussels and crème brule again, but try something else besides the fish next time. Free parking validation in the garage off Western after 5:00 is nice as well. Wine pairings and cocktails were tasty as well."

"We have yet to be disappointed by anything we have eaten here. We also very much appreciate that when we lunch there with friends with whom we have huge amounts to discuss we have no feeling that the waitstaff wishes we would finally stop talking and take ourselves off."

"Three of us for lunch. Steak, mussels and onion soup. All delicious and portions were appropriate for lunch. We also ordered and paid for a half baguette- seems a bit much for a restaurant that is pretty pricey to begin with. We also object to the small bottles of coke for $3.50. In all other respects, a good place for lunch in the Market."

"The view was mediocre, we had a reservation a week prior but seated in the corner, when we asked to be seated near the window at some empty tables we were told they were for parties of three or more. The service was poor, we didn't receive water until 20 after being seated and the restaurant was decently empty. It was full of tourists and outdoor seating is only for drinks. :( sad"

"The mussels were wonderful! We sat outside next to a neighborhood garden and with a view of Seattle harbor. For being in the middle of the market on a busy Saturday, it was a pleasant, quiet meal."
