Fodor's Review

With its contemporary design, extensive martini list, and sophisticated cuisine, Max Downtown is a favorite among the city's well-heeled, as well as a popular after-work spot. Creative entrées include sesame-crusted ahi tuna with a ginger-scallion ponzu sauce; seared sea scallops with coconut-whipped carrots, glazed turnip, and sweet potato; and a wide range of perfectly prepared steaks with toppings like foie gras butter and Maytag bleu cheese sauce. Don't skip dessert—not with options like chocolate-chip ice cream cake or s'mores crème brûlée. Max Downtown is part of a small empire of excellent Hartford-area restaurants.
