    We’ve been to Maxwell’s over the years. Ambience is just average. Service was absolutely excellent! The biggest problem I have is with the filet. It’s been pretty small the last couple of years compared to what it seemed like it was years ago. Not a lot of value for the money.

    Maxwells and its amazing staff and food never fail to disappoint! Everyone, from my waitress Jennifer, to the General Manager Ramon, truly make you feel like an honored guest. This was my first time back to Maxwells in a year and a half, and I must say that the overall quality of service, atmosphere, and enjoyability has only improved. Whether it be for a date night, birthday celebration, or anniversary, Maxwells should definitely be #1 on your list of visits!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The food was fantastic, the service spot on, overall a delight. The wine list had a wide variety to choose from. My menu restrictions were accommodated kindly and thoughtfully. The food tasted great and was served beautifully. Including dessert. Great for a special occasion.

    Nice upscale eatery in unassuming strip mall location. Blood orange old fashion was superb. Seafood paella was another highlight, as was the carrot cake bread pudding. Chicken piccata was a promising recipe but meat was over cooked.

    Wonderful experience passing through Fargo. Measured service and outstanding food. We enjoyed the escargot, walleye, paella, and a perfectly cooked ribeye. We had the dining room pretty much to ourselves at 8 on a Saturday night. I hope Fargoans will support this restaurant!

    We were visiting Fargo from out of town and went to Maxwell's for my husband's birthday. The atmosphere was nice, the food was ok, our waiter was the worst. Nice guy, terrible waiter. He kept coming back to ask us what we ordered so our food took forever to come. People who got to the restaurant after we did, got their food first (probably because their waiters were great). I ordered my steak medium well and my husband ordered his bison medium rare. When our food finally came the temperatures were flipped - bison was overcooked and my steak was under. My guess is that he probably submitted the order incorrectly. We also had to practically beg for our drinks twice, and each time he'd apologize for forgetting. My husband and I guessed he was either high on drugs or had some variation of ADD. To top it off, when I made the reservation, the person I spoke to on the phone said they'd make my husband's evening "special" since we were there celebrating his birthday. At other high end restaurants we've been to, that usually means a complimentary dessert with a "Happy Birthday" scribbled on the plate, sometimes even a candle. But after a long evening of poor service (I don't think I've ever spent over 2 hours in a restaurant) the waiter gave us our check and never came back with our take-out box that we had asked for when he first gave us the check. We had to ask another waitress for a box. Evening ruined, time and money wasted. Overall, I'd cautiously recommend Maxwell's for the food. Just pray you don't get that particular waiter.
