Max's is my very favorite restaurant in Hartford. Top prime steaks, wonderful shrimp cocktail, great ceasar salad. The staff are so accomodating seeing to every need. Drinks are superb and wine list extensive. Do not miss this restaurant, you will love it!

Max Downtown is the best. Always consistent and excellent. The service is great and experienced. What ever you want they accommodate and if there is a problem they take care of it. You will love the food and the atmosphere.

May-be we hit a bad day, but Max Downtown used to be much better. Had an expensive steak very under cooked and very very pepper filled. Hardly ever send something back but did this time--Second dissapointmet in a row...

I've used this restaurant many occasions and have always been very happy with the service and meals provided. Wide variety on the menu and you must have the steak! :)

We enjoyed dinner at Max Downtown. The food was very good and imaginatively prepared, and the service was very professional. Unfortunately, the restaurant is closing for renovations that are intended to help it to appeal to a younger crowd. It is expected to be closed for approximately 8 weeks, after the last dinner is served on Saturday, July 1, 2017.
