The service was great and much of the food was delicious. Unfortunately, the lemon and herb crusted haddock was borderline flavorless. Otherwise, a good meal!

Perfect! Crab cake appetizer to start was 90% chunk crab and filet combo with stuffed lobster tail is best in greater Hartford. Try the sundae for desert it reminded me of a bananas foster in New Orleans ... very friendly and attentive staff ... “The” Choice for Dinner in Glastonbury!

We went to MaxFish to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I had looked forward to this dinner for weeks. We started with the lobster bisque and clam chowder. Both were lovely. Unfortunately that Was the highlight of the meal. I ordered scallops which came with rice and green beans. The scallops were extremely overcooked and tough. The green beans were overcooked and mushy. My husband ordered the surf and turf. He said the short ribs were good but his shrimp was overcooked and rubbery. I also had a glass of sparkling wine and it was warm, like bottle wasn’t properly chilled. I would have said something but we hardly saw our waitress and I didn’t see a manager.

I was taken to Max Fish for my first time on Valentine’s Day, while it was a very busy night, the staff accommodated us well. Food was excellent and the service was stellar! I will definitely be dining again!

Very good seafood at a reasonable price. Had the lobster pan roast and bisque. My partner had the fillet.

Atmosphere and soundtrack couldn’t really decide what it was. The combination of music was bizarre for an upscale restaurant. Would expect something less kiddish and more refined. Went from classic rock to pop hits of the 90s to hip hop and club music. Maybe jazz? Table layout doesn’t make things very intimate but with limited space it’s to be expected. Overall a good experience just might need to find a new mix CD to put on.

We went in Valentines Day to celebrate not only the holiday but also our 10 year wedding Anniversary. I had mentioned on here it was our anniversary and the staff starting at the hostess to our server acknowledged it. Great service!!! Max’s never disappoints! We loved our food. We didn’t even feel rushed. I will keep coming back!

We found the service to be a little slow. My husband's lobster was not fully cooked. It is definitely overpriced.

I had made a reservation well in advance of Valentine's Day. I didn't request a booth, though,, I guess should have. Didn't know that was an option on this web-site. Was told a booth was not available for us, was told it could not be guaranteed even if we had. When we requested a booth, we were told there were booths open but they were reserved for people who were there yet. So, apparently people who weren't there were guaranteed a booth? Confusing: we could've reserved a booth but wouldn't be guaranteed it. But if we were there and booths were open, we couldn't have one because they were guaranteed to people who weren't there?

Dear Mark, with over 220 reservations totaling over 500 guests on valentines day & only having 9 booths that fit 4 guests we realize we cannot accommodate every guest that requests a booth. For those that do request a booth when they make a reservation we do our best to accommodate those guests requests, but never guarantee it knowing we only have 9 booths. I'm sorry the location of your table put a damper on the evening. When we spoke everyone at the table said they enjoyed the food. Thank You

The menu is good. Good selection of fish. Stuffed lobster seems too butter rich... Fairly standard. Barrata arugula salad very nice. The grilled octopus very tender and tasty. Cappuccino Gelato was okay. Waitstaff was excellent [my memory for names is terrible]. Both young women very professional and pleasant; they made appropriate suggestions for wine and perfectly attentive. The restaurant was full but conversation friendly. Also, a very busy valentine's crowd handled extremely well by the front desk.

The food and service were both excellent. The only complaint would be that where we were seated the tables were awfully close together so it was the least amount of privacy I can remember especially for an intimate setting and it was on Valentine’s Day

My husband and I decided to go to max fish for a special dinner together. Our wait staff was amazing. The food however was not. My husband for the scallops with jasmine rice and two scallops are raw and it was served with couscous and had beats in on which was not on the menu. I got the flat iron streak with was good however the Brussels sprouts have no bacon as stated on the menu. To end the night we were rather disappointed that there was not cheese cake or carrot cake. It was a lot of money spent for an unsatisfying meal

Service was not good. Food was pretty good. Sat in a high top table in the bar against a window that was cold. Poor lighting under a cold draft. Husband said he won’t go back

This is one of our favorite places to go, despite the pricetag, because dining here with gluten and dairy sensitivities is a snap. Waitpersons speak knowledgeably about what's in the food, and the kitchen staff willingly and competently modify dishes when requested to accommodate allergies. This shouldn't be a big deal -- but it is, because the number of dining establishments that either can't or won't really limits the places we can frequent. Dining here is always stress-free, and it's always delicious to boot. We keep coming back.

Great waiter and great food. Service was prompt and spot on. The truffle Mac and cheese was great and the fish and chips even better. Can’t wait to go back.

We had to wait about 15 minutes beyond our reservation for our table, and the waiting area is not very accommodating, but the food and service made up for it.

I have been a Max fan for many years. This dinner at Max Fish was not good at all. We both ordered the Mahi special and it tasted very bland. I really did not care for the corner that they stuck us in either. We both left feeling really disappointed. The Max name usually means the best. Not his time though.

My mom and I celebrated our birthdays, also on a personal note my mom had a medical emergency They helped us out and got her to the car so I can get her to the emergency room I will definitely go back there because the staff is very helpful and everyone seems to work well together and they get along with the patrons I come in I highly recommend this place for anyone who likes seafood or food in general

We were some what disappointment! The lobster bisque was bland needed a bit more sherry and lobster.
My scallops and my wife’s cod dish were lacking something but the shrimp risotto that came with the cod saved the meal.

We had a lovely dinner here with friends; however, the server did not get the order right. One in our party waited until we were all done with our meal to have his delivered. The server was overbearing at the beginning and very curt when we asked for compensation for the confusion. However, the manager rectified the situation and was extremely accommodating.
The food is the very best, especially if you are a fish lover!!

The waitstaff was terrible. Very disorganized and see to focus on filling water glasses more than the rest of his duties. Forgot to bring bread to the table and completely ignored it was my wife's birthday after I mentioned it as part of the reservation.
