Max's on Broad Ratings and Reviews
Popular French bistro- styled restaurant in downtown Richmond. Place is smartly decorated. Cocktails are pretty standard with a little innovative flair. Service is friendly but slow and not very attentive. Tuna tartare app very good, pear salad just OK. Mussels portion is large and very good. Steak Frites disappointed; frites were great, sirloin steak was tough. Wine list is long and nicely varied, priced a bit high but they offer half off on Mondays.
The valet parking is ingenious! I was really disappointed in my meal ( traditional eggs Benedict). The eggs were cooked through and the meat was thick and chewy on top of a thick chewy English Muffin. My friend had a wonderful French dip sandwhich and the truffle mayonnaise was great. Our Bloody Marys were watery and lacked flavor, but our mimosas were delicious. The ambiance is great, but they sat us in a booth on a low volume morning instead of the window seats. When asked to take a window, they said the server was full.
I will try again - not for brunch - and see how it goes because I wanted to love it!
We've been to Max's for dinner and for brunch and the food is exceptional. On each occasion, members of our group ordered different entrees and were thrilled with their choIce. Our waiter was very efficient and friendly without being intrusive. We will be returning to Max's on Broad!
It took a really long time to get the first round of drinks and then about 45 minutes for apps to delivered. Unfortunately dinner landed on the table before we had finished the apps. Servers were trying to place dinner plates without removing the first course. Timing in the kitchen was definitely off.
This was our first dinner experience at Max's. We had previously been there for Sunday brunch and were very favorably impressed. Our dinner was equally rewarding. I had the Waterzooi, a special Belgian dish. It featured the catch of the day, Mahi Mahi with lump crab meat on a bed of carrots, potatoes and leeks. It was covered with their signature lobster sauce. Excellent!
My wife had the salmon an was also very pleased. We will definitely be back.
After reading other reviews, I wish I'd have been at brunch on Mother's Day instead of dinner. My parents were visiting from out of town and I wanted to take them out to a delicious dinner for Mother's Day. I had been to Max's before and really enjoyed it so I was looking forward to our meal.
Unfortunately our experience was nothing like my last visit to Max's. After ordering our meals and receiving our appetizer, there was a kitchen issue that resulted in the sauté station being out of commission. I understand that certain things are beyond control, but the way our server and the manager handled the situation was what was most disappointing. My whole family had to re-order our dinners and had to select from very limited options. We had all ordered seafood (scallops and mahi mahi) and our options ended up being short ribs, steak or a burger. Because we had to reorder it took quite a while for us to receive our entrees. Our server was clearly irritated about the kitchen issues going on, and rather than being apologetic he came across as being annoyed with us.
At the end of the meal, not only did the manager NOT take the 1 drink we ordered or the 1 appetizer we had off our bill to thank us for our patience and understanding, but also charged us for the much more expensive entrees we were forced to order instead of the ones we had originally wanted. Sadly we paid $200 for a meal that took twice as long as it should have, was mediocre in flavor, and had elements substituted out from what was on the menu due to the kitchen malfunctions.
I was so looking forward to my meal and to showing my parents a great Richmond restaurant, but sadly I will not be returning to Max's in the future. Had they handled the circumstance differently, I would have a totally different opinion.
I asked for large table even though there are just 2 of us by the window. Even though I made the reservation early and was not informed there Would-be a problem I did receive a table for 4 located with a view of the bathroom . This is the 2nd and I'm afraid last time that will happen at this restaurant
We were enjoying a pre-theatre birthday dinner and everything was delicious. The wait staff is attentive and helpful. Bread was replenished without asking, and plates removed quickly. The meal was scrumptious and the setting lovely. We'll be going back soon.
I recently dined at Max's on Broad and I was so impressed with the food, service and ambience. Such as chic setting with wdelivious bites (ecsoecially the pre-meal cinnamon rolls)! I definitely recommend dining there. Perfect for brunch with girlfriends or a date-night!
My wife and I ate a Max's to support the Richmond Restaurant Week. We ate out Mon thru Fri and Max's was easily the best meal we had all week. The service was spot on and every course made us just love the fact that we were there. My main was the port osso bucco and hands down one of the best things I've eaten in a long time. The steak frits my wife had was also just a classic comfort dish and cooked perfectly.
Thank you Max's for a great meal.
Went with friends during Richmond Restaurant Week. Waitress provided good information on the menu and helped with wine selection. She kept her eye on us without hovering. I have been there before and will go back again. Valet parking a big plus in downtown Richmond.
We came for Restaurant week on a Wednesday night. The onion soup was good but a little salty. The bread & French fries were good. The steak was flavorless even with the herb butter put on top. It was a very poor piece of meat. It may have been the type that is chemically treated. The chocolate cake was the best part of the meal. I would never come back to restaurant week.
I am not sure I will ever return to Max's. The first time I came I loved it. I have been a few times since and been disappointed.
I would've liked to see at least one more wine by the glass option priced at the lower spectrum. The tuna tartare was terrible. You should reassess that dish. We expected a raw dish. The tuna was unrecognizable in some oily, housemade mayo? Couldn't taste the tuna at all. It was also tasteless lacking seasoning in the form of at least salt. This was the only dish that was bad. The sausage and ham soup was great, as well as the pork shank and steak frites. The chocolate cake was rich and incredibly light.
The food was pretty good. I was happy with my meal for restaurant week but my wife's salad was missing salad dressing and the chocolate cake dessert she had was dried out and not very good. The fish special was excellent and the steak frites were also very good. I like this restaurant and will return but was disappointed in two of my wife's three courses.
Went to Max's and maybe had the worst time we've ever had...which still is better than a lot of places around town. They sat us literally in front of the front door. Every time someone came in or out they'd almost hit my wife's chair. Several people did. Totally not a place for a table...we came in right between the early crowd and late crowd so tables were tight. BUT, food was good as always, and restaurant week was great for the price. BUT the service was a little poorer than usual for Max's. So that was disappointing. I'm always concerned at a place like Max's when I have to almost tackle people to get water refills, etc...just a bit surprised. Maybe they were swamped for restaurant week...anywho, we'll be back, love us some Max's.
Absolutely flawless meal. We were in Richmond visiting colleges with our daughter. I had tried to get a reservation at Can Can (we dined there a year ago and loved it), but they were booked. I found Max on Open Table and am so happy I did! The best Manhattan cocktail. Excellent appetizers and delicious seafood. Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgable without being intrusive. Wonderful!
