Fodor's Review

With its contemporary design, extensive array of martinis, and sophisticated cuisine, Max Downtown is a favorite with the city's well-heeled and a popular after-work spot. Creative entrées include panko-crusted ahi tuna with a pineapple-ginger glaze, jumbo shirmp and sea scallops with a summer vegetable succotash, and a wide range of perfectly prepared steaks with toppings like foie-gras butter and Maytag bleu cheese sauce. Desserts, such as the chocolate-chip ice cream

cake or smores crème brûlée, are not to be missed. This restaurant is part of a small empire of excellent Hartford-area restaurants.
