AJ Maxwell is the Place for Steak 2/13/2012

Worst Service Ever 2/21/2011

My reservation was for 2 on a Sunday night at 8:30 arrived at 8:20 and was promptly seated. Upon being seated I noticed that they were understaffed but was not too concerned since we weren't in a rush. We were given water and a bread basket and patiently waited to have our order taken. A party of 15+ was seated 20 minutes after we arrived and their food orders were taken before ours at which point we decided to leave at 8:55, if the wait staff and kitchen were moving slowly at that point there was no doubt that it would only get worse. more

AmazingFood! 4/20/2010

Went here with a few friends for dinner. Had soo much fun. The best sirloin I ever had. Personally, dont really like filet mignon, but my friend loved hers. We also had a special mahi mahi fish that was just delicious. The veggie sides were very yummy! Had a fresh made ravioli for appetizer that was amazing. My mouth is watering just thinking about it all. Pros: Great location/excellent food more

Check your bill! 8/29/2009

My husband and I went here for a nice Saturday night dinner. The decor was nice -- formal but not stuffy. Hostess greeted and seated us promptly. Pros: nice decor Cons: overcharged on bill, gruff waitstaff, average food more

FREE PARKING!!! 7/9/2009

My husband and I were referred by a friend to visit this steakhouse. We are passionate about the theatre so we were looking for something close to our show. We were pleasantly suprised that they offer free parking at the garage next door. It was so convienent since we were going to the show and they allowed up to 6 hours for free. What a deal. I ordered the sesame tuna and my husband had a rib eye. I never saw a steak so big in my life. I was told that there rib eye is the biggest in the city almost 40 ounces. Holy Cow. We had a great time. Our waitress was a riot. We will definitly return and spread the word of the deal going on, where else in the city can you park for free? Amazing. Pros: Free parking, Great food! Huge tastey steaks. Cons: That we didnt find this place sooner. more

A dining experience you will want to repeat 4/12/2009

We dined at AJ Maxwell's last week and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere of the bar area. In fact we enjoyed it so much we went back the next night. We spent four nights in New York and this was the best steakhouse we found. Highly recommend AJ's cheese burger and steak sandwich from the bar menu. Generous helpings and great fries too. The staff were friendly and helpful on both occasions. Will be recommending the steakhouse to friends visiting NYC. more

Good without being great 3/26/2009

The staff at AJ Maxwell's was helpful and attentive. The restaurant has good ambience and the food was good. I had the filet mignon and tiramisu for dessert. However the steak was not particularly memorable. There was nothing wrong with it but I expected more. The tiramisu was pretty good though. Pros: Overall good experience Cons: Nothing in particular more

Highly Recommended 3/18/2009

We had a company event at A.J. Maxwell's last night and I have to say the food was terrific and the wait-staff some of the best I've ever dealt with. EVERYONE was treated like a VIP (all 75 of our guests)! The portions were huge and the atmosphere relaxed. I would recommend A.J. Maxwell's to anyone. Pros: Food and Wait-staff Cons: None more

Good standard steakhouse 3/5/2009

I hadn't heard of this place, so I was a bit skeptical, but we had some gift certificates so we decided to try it out. I was very pleasantly surprised. Our waiter was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the menu, and he even recommended that we share the bone-in rib eye (most waiters want the high pay check so won't recommend sharing). The ambience was very basic - nothing to criticize but definitely nothing to praise. We had the hash browns as one of our sides, and it was excellent. The reason I didn't give a 5 was because I think there are a few steakhouses that are equal in caliber. Pros: Good food, courteous staff Cons: There are other steakhouses that are equal in caliber more

Worth The Money 1/27/2009

Dinner at AJ Maxwell's was as good as it gets. We were seated promptly at a very nice table and brough out a large bread basket with a nice variety. Our appetizers were very delicious, I had the shrimp scampi, my wife had the escargot. Our main course was mouth watering. The steaks here are large enough to satisfy me, being a big man myself. The rib eye was as tasty as I have ever had and cooked perfect. Pros: Outstanding food and service more

Restaurant Week At AJ's 1/26/2009

I ate at A.J. Maxwell's the other night during restaurant week and had a fantastic meal. Pros: Overall pleasant experience more

Not worth it!! 1/17/2009

My husband and I visited this steakhouse left night and this is the first time I have ever left a review that is negative because I know that sometimes it is just an off night, unfortunately, the attitude of this place leaves me to feel differently. Outside of, Nicole, who I would guess is the captain of the dining room, the rest of the staff is unprofessional and certainly not aiming to please. Before going to the restaurant, I went on a website for review and found that someone recently had an experience with how their food was cooked. Knowing this going in, I ordered my steak med-well, which I usually order medium but did not want my steak to come out rare. When my steak arrived, it was RARE and the center was ice cold!!!! Not in any world med-well. I did not send it back because we all know you don't send your food back to the kitchen unless you go with it!!!! Anyway, the waiter saw that I did not touch my food and NEVER even asked was there a problem. When it came time to clear the table, he did ask if I wanted to take it home. I responded if it was not edible the first time around why would I eat it at another time. He never apologized or attempted to make it right. There are too many delicious steakhouses in NY to eat here. Don't waste your time Pros: atmosphere Cons: food more

Not as good as expected 1/9/2009

My boyfriend and I recently ate here while visiting NY and we are steak lovers. While the location and decor was very nice, I had some issues with the food and staff. I order the Filet, medium rare the portion was huge, but the steak was way under cooked. It was literally RAW and COLD in the center. After sending it back our waiter asked what was wrong. I cordially explained that it was raw and cold in the center, he responded by saying "Well when you order a fillet medium rare, that's how its served." Not even an apology. Excuse me?? I am a cook myself and know full well what medium rare should be in temperature and appearance. Granted some places serve food differently, that's universal and if that is the way they serve it, the customer most certainly ought to be informed of such. Secondly, that last thing a restaurant or waiter should ever do in that situation is argue or say anything other than "We apologize and will take care of it right away." Both my boyfriend have worked in food service as waiters and still do occasionally and we take great care addressing our servers and any issues we have with food or service. We were not rude by any means. Had the staff responded differently, I would feel no need to mention this incident in this review This is not behavior I would expect from such a fine dining establishment. Pros: Ambience, location, sides, dessert, wine list, steaks Cons: Service more
