Good Food Can't Make Up for Bad Service

I took my brothers and my girlfriend here last weekend looking for a good meal on a Saturday night. I had been to Max before, a little while ago and enjoyed it. I could not have been more surprised with the experience we had. We were sat quickly, and the Sangria we had was very good. We got no bread on the table, though all of the other tables in the room did. We ordered quickly and then the wait started. Our ... view more

Best Italian in NYC

This little hole in the wall Italian restaurant is fantastic. A rustic, down-to-earth, no reservation needed home cooked place that serves phenomenal pasta. You need to come hungry because they serve large bowls.

Good food, rude waiter!

Four of us had dinner at Max Restaurant on Saturday night, and while the food was pretty good, our waiter was incredibly and unnecessarily rude. we were seated under a speaker and asked VERY NICELY to turn down the music a little bit, the waiter said ""no. we play loud music"" \r \r a little later, when the music had become even louder, the hostess responded to my plea and turned it down, only to have the same wai... view more

We walked into a fairly empty restaurant on a Monday evening. The hostess tried to seat the 3 of us in the back by the bar & next to the bathroom. When we asked if we could sit in the front room instead (which was empty!), she shot us a dirty look & squeezed the 3 of us into a tiny table for 2. The steamed asparagus w/proscuitto appetizer consisted of 4 measly sprigs of cold asparagus wrapped in bland, dry proscui... view more

What? this place is OVERRATED.

Ordered delivery from the famous ""Max"" tonight. I am not kidding -- it was UN-EDIBLE. The rigatoni with meatballs and sausage had sort of a brown sugar taste. The meatballs were dry and crusty. The bread came cold and stale. The salad -- bland and boring. I am so grossed out. I will never order from Max again. With places like Perbacco, Lavagna, Il Posto and Supper within blocks, do not bother. This must be an... view more

best meat sauce

I have to admit that Max has great pasta at affordable prices. Service is good and the atmosphere that the employees create makes it a fun place to go. No reservations which I do not like but ok.. the wait is worth it.. However please tell Hostesses to be more kind with customers since I felt it was not polite with us...Overall I have to say that highly recommend this place for diner.

must say is really good

I was at max last Thursday night and had a really good experience. I had heard a lot from Max before so I had to give it a chance. I have to say that I had a really good time. My meatloaf was the best I ever tried ( and I love meatloaf so I know when is good). The service was friendly and polite, not Italian waiters though but friendly and handsome Southamerican...The athmosphere of the place is awesome, good music a... view more

Terrible service! Bad Gnocchi.

I had dinner there last night with a friend. I arrived 10 mins early and sat at the bar. Two employees behind the bar totally ignored me. Not once in the 10 mins was I asked if I wanted a drink. After my friend and I were seated and handed menus by the hostess, we waited 10 mins and had to flag someone to take our order. We had a play at 7:30pm and we told our waiter. He never once checked on us and again we had to f... view more
