Outstanding Evening. We had an oustanding evening. All I can say is that we had amazing food and drink and probably the best service we have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Staff welcomed us, truly appreciated our business and actually seemed to enjoy what they do and who they work for. Owners were out and about, talking and laughing with customers...it was as if everybody knew your name. Congratulations to Maxwells for doing it as it should be done. Everybody should try this restaurant...this is the type of family run business that everybody should support...can't wait to go back mid-week for their 3 course dinner for $29.99.
Good!. This is a very nice restaurant, I really liked the food and the environment. Lunch or dinner, it doesn't matter. It is always good.
Can't wait to go back!. I brought a party of five friends to Maxwell's after hearing great things about the restaurant from a colleague. We were greeted warmly, and seated promptly at a great table in the back. Our server was friendly and accessible, answering all of our questions and even suggesting some delicious cocktails! The menu had something to suit all of our tastes, and even my vegetarian friend had several options. We were also thrilled by the extensive wine list, which the owner personally helped us navigate. The food was amazing! In addition, the exceptional ambiance, service, and quality made it a night that we will all remember fondly! We hope to return soon!
An elegant special night out.
We had heard wonderful things about Maxwells from friends and decided to try it for ourselves.
You would never know from the outside just how elegant & relaxed the interior is.
The service staff was very friendly & extremely knowledgeable about the dishes and the wine/cocktail menu which was very unique, delicious drinks that you've never seen elsewhere.
The menu had a wonderful combination of items with an Asian flair.
We ordered the Risotto cake & Pho Max soup appetizers that were perfect. Can't wait to have them again.
For dinner we ordered the Rib Eye and the Gnocchi plate. They were phenomenal. Totally handmade.
The service was wonderful, very relaxed & very attentive.
We left there feeling like we celebrated a special occasion. The chef, Mitch stopped by to say hello and chat for a bit which was a nice touch.
We will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
You now have a dedicated customer.
Absolutely Phenomenal. I took an out of town colleague here on Thursday night. I had made reservations and we were seated promptly upon arrival. You wouldn't know it from the outside, but this restaurant is beautiful on the inside. Their wine list is fantastic and the waitor was very accomodating and friendly. Attentive but not pushy. OUr appetizers (eggplant and a mushroom risotto cake) were probably some of the best I've ever had. The mushroom risotto cake takes the award for best out of the two. I had their lobster, black truffle gnocchi and it was one of the tastiest pasta dishes I have ever had. My husband had the filet and he said it rivaled his favorite steakhouse in Las Vegas (where the steak is over $100). The creme brulee at the end was the perfect finish to an outstanding meal. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates a good meal and isn't afraid to pay for it.
One of the Best Restaurants in Boston. Everyone in my party of five really enjoyed our dining experience at Maxwell's 148. The $33 prix fixe menu was one of the nicest I have seen to date. And the service was unusually attentive (but not overly so) and friendly. We will certainly be back.
Tasty alternative to the city. While the majority of the food was tasty and the wine list was great...the service was awkward. The waiter cleared a plate before we were done with it (and didn't bother to ask). The tuna tataki (appetizer) was sub-par. The beef carpacio was a favorite at our table. Would've liked more explanation of the dishes and less small talk by the wait staff. I ordered the Ribeye special which was huge and overpriced. Atmosphere is nice.
Best food and service anywhere.
Maxwell's 148 has the best of its unique brand of fusion cuisine. Every dish is prepared perfectly with a consistently wonderful presentation. Couple this with outstanding service, and Maxwell's is head and shoulders above other restaurants in its class. Maxwell's has a very knowledgeable and courteous staff that really understand proper restaurant etiquette. I cannot say that about many places, both in Boston and in other cities around the country. Its location and ambiance are suprising. The building is relatively small, blending in with its surroundings - a brick building on a strip mall off of a state road. This is not your typical suburban fine dining locale. So one is taken aback that the interior ambiance is in such stark contrast to it exterior digs. The cocktails and wine list are all excellent - marks of a fine restauranteur. The menu often varies as the head chef is constantly trying out new and exciting combinations, so you can't say you've had everything on the menu after a few visits. The price discourages eating there every night, or every week, but with Prix fixe options during the week it won't always break your bank.
Maxwell's is a special treat for lovers of excellent food and top-notch service.
N.Y.C.. This is by far my favorite restaurant. I live in N.Y.C. but whenever I go to Boston on business I make sure to take my clients to Maxwells 148. The wine list is excellent and the staff is very attentive.
Re: Great Restuarant. Went with my sisters. It was pricey but expected. We ate and ENJOYED our monies worth. The waiters were very attentive-didnt bother us the second you got your food about how it was. Actually waited for you to taste it. The food was YUM YUM YUM. We had the best time. We werent rushed. We got to actually experience our food.
