"It's been years since I went to Max Opera Cafe in Palo Alto. One of the features was the singers which not longer exist. That was a disappointment. That is what made the restaurant unique. Now it's just another restaurant with decent prices and big servings."

"The food is good and the service is adequate. BUT they have live music on the weekends, and it's excruciatingly loud. We asked for it to be turned down, and the manager said he would do what he could. Apparently, that wasn't much. We asked again and were told some people like it this way.
If you like amateurish live music so loud you can't hear your partner talk, this is the place for you.

"The restaurant's menu provides great value. Our waitperson, Victor, was a bit confused. The pianist should turn the volume down when singing as it was distracting. Playing just the piano without singing was fine."

"My family has been going to this Maxis for 20 years, and it has been sliding downhill for a while now. After our most recent visit, we've resolved to dine elsewhere. The menu and food isn't as good, and the service and dining experience is mediocre at best. I paid $14 for a craft-style, bland macaroni and cheese with no sides. Very disappointing. Not coming back."

"We have dined here for lunch for about 12 years! The menu offers something for everyone and we've never been disappointed. Many of the menu items are plentiful to share. This year, we found all our lunch choices to be excellent. That being said, our server seemed to have forgotten little requests and seldom, if ever once, returned to check on us. We had such a wonderful, social event that we really let this slip. Had we only been a couple, the service would have warranted "no tip"."
