Went with my wife for Valentine’s Day. Had 9:30 reservation. We arrived a little early but were promptly seated. The waiter came within a couple of minutes after we were seated. He was very knowledgeable and made good recommendations for our meal. The food was FABULOUS and we had a nice wine pairing. Overall we were quite pleased with our dining experience and will return in the future
Best snapper with carmelized onions in the city. We have been customers for 30 years and every meal has been great
Outstanding! The food is delicious, beautifully presented, and large portions. The service is always excellent. Last but not least, the carrot cake is the best I’ve ever tasted. A must when we are in the area.
Fantastic seafood. My wife and I were visiting from central Florida and this was recommended.
wonderful food wonderful service
a great place to celebrate a special event
I've been to this restaurant many times. The food keeps getting better. I don't know how they do it but I've eaten the same dish on more then one occasion and this last time was the best. Good service and the foie gras is something to write about but better to eat....
Delicious meal! Wonderful service and food. Started with wine and appetizers of Brussels sprouts and octopus carpaccio. Our party of four had succulent jumbo scallops, lamb chops, elk chops, and sashimi. All dishes were amazing!
The waitress was awesome. The food was delicious, especially the brussel sprouts. The snapper was divine.
The martinis were perfect. Will be returning
We love to visit Cafe Maxx on our South Florida treks. Great food and excellent service. Darryl greeted us as always and showed us to our lovely seating. Angela took over and was very attentive to our every need. The food was fabulous!!! We need to sell our house and move south.
Clever menu, wonderful and gracious service; beautiful presentation ....accommodating service
Came here for a date night with the hubs! It had been a long time that I hadn’t come to café Maxx! I got to see a lot of dear ppl that I hadn’t seen in a long time, food still rocks! Ricardo as always is the best waiter ever, extremely attentive and with amazing suggestions.. Ron is the bomb bartender super polite and receptive and lets add he makes amazing drinks 😁
Over all an amazing experience

Right on point. Enjoyed all of the experience. The food was prepared perfectly. The wait staff was attentive but not on top of you. Looking forward to our next meal here.
Great, as usual! The food and service is consistently good.
Great fresh fish ,loved my onionencrusted fish!!
Always delicious....used to be a regular but now live 3500 miles away, and always make it back to see Darryl and eat at Cafe Maxx when I’m any where close by.
Service is always spectacular as well. It’s not inexpensive but it’s definitely worth the experience! 100%!!!
Cafe Max is one of our favorite restaurants in South Florida! Food is consistently excellent and really unusual, delicious and beautiful! If you want to impress someone this is the place to go! Great service and beautiful decor! They accommodate vegans, vegetarian and cater to your wishes! Also they have Valet parking!

Went a few times. This time was New Year’s Eve. Everything was consistently excellent. The ran out of some bread and we had to wait a little for our reserved table but l love this place.
Always love the food here. The ladies rest room needs renovating.
News year eve... fabulous food& great service, the restaurant managers the reservation punctual...
New Years eve
the menu is varied and unlike most restaurants. food is very good. I did think they could improve on their vegetables which were limited in taste. place is noisy when busy, can be crowded.
Ery good food nice atmosphere it was a pleasure to take some friends who had never been there.
The Tuna pizza was outstanding.
for many years, this has been one of the best in Pompano Beach.
Cafe Maxx is our favorite restaurant to spend on Christmas Evening. The food is superb and the service exquisite. It is our Christmas dinner tradition but we also will have dinner here on other occasions or eat at the bar.
Bee y good food as usual. Cafe Max is always consistent food is outstanding!!! They never disappoint.
This is one of the best restaurants in the Fort Lauderdale area. The food was excellent and service was comparable. The two owners are on site - one in the kitchen and one as host. They have been operating this restaurant for 35 years. Quite a statement since most do not make it 5 years. Worth a try for sure.
Salmon pizza appetizer and creme brulee was amazing, I would highly recommend those dishes if you are in the area and on a date. The roasted Duck was fair/good, the stuffed shrimp was served luke warm...if it was hot it would have been great.
Overall main course was just ok but for the price meh & the server hinting for a bigger tip was comical.....
I first visited Cafe Maxx over 30 years ago when it first opened. At the time I thought it was a breath of fresh air to a stodgy Boca area upscale dining scene. I frequented Cafe Maxx for the next 3-5 years, while I was living in the area, and always enjoyed the creative take on fresh ingredients - never had a bad meal. Last week, I was in town with my wife and son, and on a whim checked to see if Cafe Maxx was still operating. It was - and it was as wonderful as ever. An extensive menu of creative, well-executed dishes, with great variety - something for everyone. Prices are high, but fair for the quality you get. The restaurant is relatively small, so I'd encourage you to reserve ahead.... and make sure you save room for dessert - Portions are good sized, so you won't go away hungry, either. ... they even provide you with a bread basket of varied tasty offerings while you enjoy your pre-meal beverages
The service was quite slow. Tables are too close and tight, so staff bumps you often. Some of the food is a bit too complicated with sauces. They offer nothing for birthday celebrating except a candle on whatever you order? Somewhat disappointed.
A consistantly excellent expensive restaurant in south Florida. My favorite.
Wonderful dining experience for twelve of us. All dishes were prepared and served meticulously. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We will be back next year!
Super great brunch items. Very different
