We were looking for something we haven't tried before and Cafe´ Maxx was in the perfect location for us meeting. It was not very busy but we went on a week night. The shrimp and pumpkin risotto is RIDICULOUS! It was too good. The taco appetizer paled in comparison but was still good. Entrees were enjoyed by all. The Churrasco... More

Despite the facelift of the shopping center where it's located, Cafe Maxx is starting to show its age. But let's call it classic. The food is always excellent. The service always attentive. This is not a pretentious restaurant that grabs you by the hair with unusual combinations of ingredients and museum quality presentations of food. Cafe Maxx is more like... More

Maybe a Friday night when friends go out and decompress may not be the best night to bring a date for intimate dining, but THIS WAS NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME, but I see it may be for some. But if some raucous bit loud folks having a good time cheer your heart like it does me, then you can... More

My wife and I tried this place as part of the Sunny.org dining out experience. I was expecting small portions but in an upscale place. The venue is very nice and the portions were so big we had to take some home. Highly recommend the Bacon Mac n Cheese as well as the NY Strip Steak.

Sorry to write this but not so great. We don't come here often but when we do we drive an hour to get here. We came with one other couple and we were seated at a six top so my husband went over to the host and asked for a different table and he laughed in his face. Literally the... More

This was a real positive surprise!! Food was not only delicious, but had excellent presentation! Menu was diverse , interesting and delicious!! The special 3 course menu represented excellent value and has encouraged us to return with other friends without the special menu!! The chef definitely understands how to create interesting food that looks worthy of a photography session. Wait... More

This is not our first visit. It has always been good. Expensive, but good. This time we took advantage of the fix price local "Dine out Fort Lauderdale". When the hostess started to gather up menus, we mentioned that we needed the fix price menu. We were seated in a back room as were others doing the fix price, separate... More
