Steakhouse | Rochester, Western New York

Our group of 6 ladies enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service from each member of the team. The food was delicious and not one person had a single complaint. I started with a creamy asparagus with crabmeat soup that was extremely tasty and then enjoyed the catch of the day, halibut, seared and served over lobster risotto which melted in my mouth. One of us with a garlic allergy called ahead and spoke with the chef who created a delicious accommodative version of my dish especially for her. Our group asked for separate checks which were hassle free and prompt, even though we were warned it might take a little extra time. It did not. Please note that gratuity was added to the bill and the credit card receipt still includes a blank line to add a tip so if you don’t check, you might tip twice. Not that the service wasn’t worth it, because it was. Thanks for providing such a classy environment for friends to connect! More

This is a go to place for my wife and I. This time was wonderful as always. From a special sparkling wine toast for her birthday to just a simple candle in her ice cream it was a great dining experience. She went with the filet which was cooked perfectly. I went with a chef’s choice sashimi which was great. I am sure we will be back for another special occasion. More

Steakhouse | Rochester, Western New York

My first visit at Max Chophouse was a good one. We had reservations which were met on time. The steak tartar was fresh and delicious, and the steak we ordered was cooked perfectly how we ordered it. The NY strip with truffle butter on the side was incredibly tasteful and very large. The filet was perfect as well. Constant water service and attentive waitress but not over attentive; a good balance. Dim atmosphere, family style seating with a small space as a separation, but still felt by ourselves which was nice but social at the same time. This place seems to get good business by just being known, or word of mouth. The store front is not much to behold, and at night could barely see where to turn into the parking lot in front. We ended dinner off with a little espresso which was quite good. The bill we gave two cards and told her to split evenly which she seemed to charge me twice then refund me and never told me, which annoys me. Other that this, we had a good time. We talked with the couple we came with for a while after we were done and didn’t get rushed out at all. Coat check available and great bar with wine selection as well. More

Appetizers were great and had a good variety available. Ambiance was nice and relaxing for a weeknite. Can imagine to be a up and hip place on Friday nite after work. Was told owner changed therefore not as vibrant and busy as prior years, We came to this place starting 2014 and noticed the food has changed over the last few years. We are out of state patrons and have been coming back almost every year. Branca in downtown Rochester has great food!!! Food presentation is very nice and zazzy at this location. Pasta dish was excellent too! More
