The service was excellent and the hostess found room for us on a busy night with no reservation. That being said, the steak was not all that for the price. The Ahi tuna was excellent and the salads were excellent.

Not what you'd expect. Service was lazy and almost annoyed to serve us. Makes you feel like they're doing you a favor as opposed to their own job. The meal took way too long for a small family like mine, which didn't help because my baby was impatient. The pricing is out the roof. Overall this place is overrated and... More

Really enjoyed my first visit here. The filet was spectacular. Our service was good and all 4 meals at the table were excellent.

Recommended by the Hilton Garden Inn. Nice steaks and seafood. Soups were season, Great wedge salad..........it was one of the better one's I have had. Finding the turn in is a little tricky as it sits back off of the main road.

My husband and I went here for our 5 year wedding anniversary. We had an absolutely wonderful evening. The food was so amazing and the wine was absolutely delicious. It was so wonderful to order a steak "medium" and actually have it cooked the right way. Too many times we've gone out and never had our steak cook the way... More

I've been to Max 40 a few times. I lived in West Palm Beach for 5 years, and there aren't many trendy hot spots in the Danbury, Brewster, Carmel area but Max 40 compares to WOB, it is quite impressive. Service was always friendly, prompt and attentive. Food is amazing. Atmosphere is upbeat, classy, trendy and fun. Bar is always... More

We love the atmosphere at Max 40 and the food is always delicious. It is a bit pricey, so we don't go that often. I would recommend trying for lunch as we did last Sunday. Our waiter, Rocco, was informative, pleasant and did not rush us...another reason to try on a Sunday afternoon rather than a busy Saturday night. My... More

Went here with a girlfriend of mine for a late dinner. I had the seared sea scallops and shrimp with lemon risotto. It was good but expensive. My girlfriend had the seared salmon, she said it was delicious. The waiter was very friendly and checked in us a few times without being annoying.

Serving 9 people at the same time shouldn't be difficult for such a reputable business. The chef may be creating great dishes which we all loved, but waiting for everyone to start enjoying the meal took us about 6 minutes. Two server could have brought all 9 of our dishes at the same time and we could have enjoyed the... More
