Went to celebrate a 21st birthday during the pandemic. Maximon took excellent care of us and made everything so special. Absolutely would recommend times a million! All the cocktails and the desserts were incredible. The churros, tres leches cake and the passion fruit flan were all 10/10.

My table was right in front of the door which they kept open all night (40 degree weather). Needless to say my food immediately got cold. Food was average, I was not impressed. Service was great. I would probably only come back for the Margarita.

Food was excellent. Bar services were slow. Appetizer service and meal service was even slower. Good food and atmosphere can overcome a multitude of problems with service but it would be nice if the service matched the food

Was so excited to finally try and left feeling disappointed. Our appetizer and main course was undercooked - spicy lobster tacos and giant prawns with Adobo were raw. Abraham our server was incredible but the food was not. We won't be back.

We got the tasting menu. The food presentation was beautiful, and the service attentive, but the food was quite bland and discordant in flavor, overly complicated and underwhelming, and overpriced for what we recieved. The oysters were also supposed to be grilled, but they tasted essentially raw- gooey and wet.

We had a great recommendation for this restaurant. Drove from 3 hours PA to eat here. It was my husband's birthday, told the staff when booking. The food was great, the server got our food in time but after our meal. We tried to get his attention to order dessert only to have the server plonk down our bill. When my husband told him we wanted dessert he just walked away. Four seasons is known for their service but, not this one. Never again.

Looking for Latin American cuisine in a high end restaurant? This is your place. Beautiful ambiance, stellar cocktails with premium tequila, great service and delicious tacos.

I had the shrimp and crab taco and my friend had the fish. We had the house margarita, a Papel Picado, and a spicy margarita. The drinks are stellar!!

This was by far the best experience we’ve had at a restaurant in a very long time. The wait staff were very attentive, several well dressed managers checked in with us periodically to make sure we were being taken care of. The food was amazing, and the atmosphere made us feel as though we were back in Cancun on vacation, very relaxing. Totally recommend Maximón

The food was good but very high priced. But the service was terrible. For example, our water was not refilled a single time. Finally while ordering dessert I asked for more water. They Still didn’t bring any. I asked again and finally got more. The food also took forever and the portions were small.

The food Was excellent, our server was entertaining and very knowledgeable. The live music truly made the night special. The scenery made you forget you are in Baltimore. Think the beauty of Mexico at Baltimore Harbor. We will be back.

The most downside of the restaurant is the food. Three out of our main dishes are way too salted. I mean very salted. The options for the food are also limited, The food price does not match its quality. In particular for the two pond lobster, listed $105, is not worthy. The flavor of the sauce was over the taste of lobster. The scene is great and service are great.

I have been here before and the portobello fajitas we modified to be vegan, however, at this occasion they would not cook w oil instead of butter. Seemed like an easy switch. Also we didn’t get served drinks until after almost an hour after ordering. Guac was delicious and came right away. Not a fan of the server we had.

The ambience, the food, the service, everything was great. The wagyu taco was like the best thing I ever ate and the passion fruit flan was a perfect way to end my dining experience. Our server was very helpful in helping us decide what to eat and what drinks to pair with our meals. Overall great experience.

Food: excellent appetizers and entree’s. Flavorful and varied, dessert was good

Drinks: unique and interesting combinations

Music: started at 8 and fantastic

Service: pretty poor, took away silverware and forgot to give new ones each time, kept forgetting side plates, 10 minute delays between appetizers, 20 minute delay for entree especially after mistakingly bringing non veg item for one person who was vegetarian.

Our reservations were for 5:30 but didn’t get done until 9 because of the delays. But we enjoyed the music and being with friends. Truly unintentional delays but we pretended it was South American custom.

Overall we enjoyed food, drinks and music.

Service was outstanding from start to finish. Food was delish from start to finish. Ambiance: gorgeous. Music: a bit too clubby for too long; would prefer a better mix or a better read of the crowd to adjust to a more mellow sound when not crowded and on a Monday night. Otherwise, can't wait to come back for more. Oh, and totally covid-safe. Much appreciated the precautions by staff to wear masks and gloves.

Saturday they had live salsa and other latino music. It was loud but that's why you go there on Saturday night. One of the prettiest views of the harbor, a terrific patio, and amazing food choices. This is not a typical hispanic restaurant however and is very pricy. We blew past $250 for a couple with no problem.
