Max Downtown for New Year's--not great

lenorelenore | Jan 1, 2010 10:23 AM

We went to Max Downtown for the prix fixe New Year's dinner. We were expecting swank fun--not so much! My husband's seafood paella was weird--a few shrimp and clams, maybe a 1/4 cup dryish rice. My dinner was better--veal chop.
One dessert good, the other (key lime tart I think) seemed dried out.
But the waiter--rude! Seemed irritated to be waiting on us. With dessert when I asked for more coffee he sloshed some in my cup and booked before my husband could ask for more--didn't offer husband more, left us with nearly empty milk pitcher.
Just kind of weird for a place that I thought was going to be so upscale.
But we had fun anyway! Husband good company!
did anyone else go their for First Night?
