This is a nice place to sit down with friends and have a nice formal meal. The food is great. The decor is up to grade. Overall a satisfying meal.

While there are some things formulaic about Max Group restaurants, they have been delivering very fine food, graciously served and in pleasant surroundings for decades. The price point is a little below truly fine dining and a little above less accomplished and less adventurous places.

The unfailing quality, menu and beverage breadth, and skillful and welcoming wait staff pretty much guarantee a very satisfying dining experience. After earning their culinary reputation in downtown Hartford, they should be commended for adding sophistication and value to the suburban landscape. Max Amore and Max A Mia (in Avon) are primarily Italian inspired, but this evening my wife and I had two excellent fish dishes that weren't from the typical Italian repertoire.

There were plenty of temptations in the starter lineup, but on a summer evening we were more interested in saving room for dessert. A nice selection of superior wines by the glass was a plus when we still had a ways to drive home.

We are always up for trying new places, but when its dependability and high standards you are looking for, the local Max is hard to beat. This venue is perhaps our favorite away from downtown because the noise levels seem to be lower, there is a nice outdoor patio and usually ample nearby parking.

We had a great meal at Max Amore. The olive selection was good, along with the bread and salad. The pizzas were great, too.

Nice relaxing brunch after an evening from travel hell!

Great Bloody Mary (secret ingredient is fennel)! We had the blueberry French toast and Max penne, both great.

Loved the atmosphere! Would definitely recommend for a relaxed Sunday brunch.

The service was impeccable, professional, and personable. The selection on the menu combined with the specials make the epicurean selection top shelf. The olives appiteasers were a nice selection, the bread was so fresh, and the Caesar salad was lovely with a light dressing that was quite tasty. Add the fresh pepper and the fresh grated cheese and wow! The pasta was done just right, the sauce was so flavorful, it was heavenly. Nice size portion, just enough! The tiramisu dessert was massive -be sure to share it lest you will eat it all yourself!
