Well known, upscale restaurant in the French Quarter. Adjacent to the Roosevelt Hotel, which by itself is a must-see. When dining out, I appreciate the food, the atmosphere and perhaps most importantly the service. The staff was friendly and seemed to genuinely care about us enjoying our dining experience. They were very busy while we were there and a couple of times we were left waiting long periods of time. Best known for its gourmet pizza, which I had and was excellent. The rest of the menu was very good as well, according to my fellow diners. I would give the atmosphere a B+, the food a B+ and the service a B. I would recommend it to others and would consider dining there again while in New Orleans.

From Business: Maximo’s Grill features Italian cuisine with a New Orleans twist along with an exceptionally diverse wine list. Maximo’s is more of a culinary vacation than traditi…
Nice upscale interior. We had advance reservations for a party of 12 and we agreed to 2 tables of 6 athough at 5:15 it was virtually empty. No attempt was made to even seat us close by our friends. We found the waiters very snobbish and unfriendly .. Even had to ask someone else for a refill of iced tea when I couldn't get our waiters attention. My $14 pasta in the regular pasta section was seriously 6 bites. It was not from the small plates menu. Both tables asked for separate checks.. One waiter forgot and was very annoyed when asked again. Of the 6 couples, none would recommend to friends or return. Its a shame, but none of us felt welcomed.
I only thought I had eaten lasagne until now. The flavor was unlike anything I had ever tasted. My girl had Fettucine which had this wonderful Pesto. Danni (Danielo) the waiter,saw to it that we had everything we needed. I HIGHLY recommend the Ruffino (Chianti). The combination of wine and food was orgasmic.Very small and quaint place. A nice romantic spot to bring that significant other. It was nice to go to the French Quarter and not be subject to the hustle and bustle of Bourbon Street.
