Steakhouse | Rochester, Western New York

Delicious food, a great place to relax and actually have a quiet conversation! Not the usual noisy restaurant , Max’s is subtly cool - just enough buzz without the obnoxiously loud music and shouting that exists in most everyplace I go. Friendly and informative waitress even timed our courses appropriately, knowing we were 3 friends catching up. We weren’t hurried along. Shrimp cocktail was the best I ever had, the ribeye was cooked perfectly, the bread assortment fresh from the oven, and my Tito’s martini was extraordinary! The addition of some Bleu cheese stuffed olives really made it. Even the coffee was great! I’ll be back. This could be my new favorite haunt! More

My steak was amazing!!! My husband got the pasta special and it was very bland to say the least. It was supposed to be a spicy seafood pasta and the seafood was over done and the pasta had no spice to it. Overall we would definitely come back and give it another shot. It's beautiful and the service was beyond amazing More

The Tuesday “Date Night” dinner 5 course special was excellent. Menu had a few choices to pick from for each course. Portion of entree was a great size for a shareable meal. The dessert options were also good size. I had the chocolate cake it was huge and very delicious. The atmosphere was quite cozy and the staff was very prompt, friendly and courteous. Price of this dinner special was more than worth the value. Overall I had a phenomenal experience and I highly recommend this restaurant. More

Mexican | Rochester, Western New York

My wife and I with two other couples, had a great dining experience at Salena’s on this Saturday night in August. The service was excellent from the greeting of the maitre de to the polite and friendly waitress and jovial young men bringing out our hot and delicious entrees all in a well coordinated manner. My Drunken Shrimp Tacos were delightfully tasty with just the right amount of Mexican spices, cotijo cheese and accompanying black beans and warm corn tortillas as only Salena’s serves them. Everyone at our table was very pleased with the food, drinks and congenial service. We didn’t get to sit outside on a beautiful summer night and that was the only draw back. Otherwise it would have been 5 stars across the board. More

Greek | Rochester, Western New York

My wife and I went there for our anniversary. We sat outside by the river as it was a beautiful night. Waiter came over asked us if we wanted anything to drink said yes and we also ordered an appetizer of grilled octopus, which unfortunately my wife could not eat. She asked the waiter if they could grill the calamari instead of frying it,he said he would check and in a few minutes he came back with the manager Tim. Tim went and talked to the chef and said that would not be a problem. We were not charged for the octopus. I loved it and took the rest home. I ordered the poseidon and my wife ordered the lemon Greek chicken Both were very tasty. The server came back a number of times to check on us and make sure everything was OK. Our water glasses were filled all the time. Very attentive but not overly in your face. Over all it was a very enjoyable evening and we will be back. More
