"Reservations are accepted which is a huge bonus because it's become our go-to spot to dine whenever picking up guests at SFO. The mini-Reuben sandwiches are generously filled with tasty corned beef or pastrami (your choice!) and easily shared. There are so many delicious items on their menu. Service was great both times we dined there. Love the Niagara cake -- so moist and just the right blend of chocolate and vanilla."

"My family has been going to Max's for years for all sorts of occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries and Easter brunches, we enjoy the great food and excellent service. But what we LOVE is their awesome, gigantic desserts! Always shareable and delicious!!"

"Max's is a great place and the food is good. The menu has dwindled since we were last there, but it's still good. The prices are going up faster than expected though. : - ( I would only add that there is a piano close to the bar, so if you'd like less noise, make sure you clarify that."

"Have been to Max's in Stanford Shopping Center several times for lunch when staying in Palo Alto, so when we had to overnight @ Hilton SFO and were meeting friends for dinner, Max's Burlingame location seemed like a convenient spot. Service was welcoming, friendly, efficient.
The 2 men in our little group had the Thursday night special prime rib dinner and were very happy. I liked my shrimp/pasta dish and the other gal said her chicken was very good.
This is an easy and excellent choice for lunch or dinner with people who prefer good casual "normal" food for a good price. Whether for appetizers, sandwiches, or full meal, Max's will not disappoint the casual diner.

"We have always enjoyed Max's. But the last time we dined there we were surprised at the porr service provided. We were seated promptly, and a drink order was taken soon thereafter. But then there was a long wait until our food order was taken, and an extraordinarily long delay before our food order was served. Our billing and payment was handled by the manager, not the waiter. Perhaps there was a staff shortage at that time.
All in all, although the food was great as usual, the fact that our dining experience lasted mare than 2 hours was disappointing.

"Haven't been here for a while - since they changed from "Max's Opera Cafe". Seems like the portions are smaller and the menu is a little different. The piano player on the bar side was nice for background music."

"It's been awhile coming to this chain of restaurant. Never have been to this site either.
Food isn't what I remember, but it was average. A little chilly inside the restaurant but because it wasn't full? Our waiter was very nice and service was good.
Just a bit disappointed in the food. I did ask if they still had singing. The piano is located on the bar side. They do have some tables to eat on that side as well. Somehow I didn't think it would be a problem hearing, but we really couldn't hear the music/singing sitting on the other side of the bar, plus didn't think to ask to change tables. Probably didn't matter anyway, didn't seem like there was much singing during our 1.5 hr stay.

"Max's has good food, and should be a thriving Burlingame restaurant. My wife and I come here for a casual Friday night dinner or Sunday breakfast about every 1-2 months. The service is always below average. Last Friday night, after a long day of work and weather, we decided to come here for a drink and a burger. I made a reservation on OpenTable for 8:15 pm, we arrived 10 minutes early and were seated promptly. I would say the dining room was 3/4 full. Bread came to the table immediately, but the waiter did not appear at our table for 20 minutes. We could see him casually talking for over 5 minutes to people at a table across from us, but certainly no urgency or attention to the other surrounding tables or us. When our waiter arrived, we ordered a drink. He listed the specials and asked if we wanted to order now. I ordered a cup of the Friday night Clam Chowder, and we each ordered a burger- pretty simple. After another 15 minutes, no drinks, and then I start thinking that my soup would come before my drink. That didn't happen because he forgot the soup and brought the drinks about 2 minutes before the burgers. The food was fine, but why can't a restaurant understand that there is a protocol around ordering and serving food? Drinks, starters, entrees, dessert- in a predictable order. Slow service, forgetful waiter, everything at once is not how a full service restaurant should be managed. Another disappointing night at Max's, and we try to like this place, but it is consistently mediocre- especially the service."
