Husband and I love dining out monthly and chose Maxwells for the reviews given on our menu favorite the beef tenderloin. We had great service with great cocktails but must review that this was not a great meal. It was drowning in a red wine sauce, covered witha thick layer of goat cheese (delicious on its own in a smaller... More

Went to this restaurant on a Friday night. Make reservations, and request a booth. From the outside, the restaurant looks unassuming, but the food, service and presentation of the food is "top notch". Took the recommendation from the waiter and ordered the day boat sea scallops which were prosciutto wrapped with lobster red-curry sauce. Then we shared the salad of... More

Upscale fine dining restaurant, and the prices reflect such. Very accomplished service. Excellent food. One of the specials that night was lobster alfredo. But even the basic salad was excellent. The complimentary lavash crisps are addictive. The coffee is strong and well done without being burnt or acidic.

If you want a fine dining experience in the Fargo area, Maxwells cannot be topped. Excellent food and service in a cozy environment. I have had perfect steak and halibut and some of their local specialties also.

We were in town going to a concert in Fargo and just found this restaurant online and were we glad we did! This restaurant is beyond fabulous! I had the special of the night, swordfish and my husband had the beef tenderloin. Both dishes were unbelievably delicious! We would go back to Fargo, just to go to this restaurant in... More

We met up with a dozen colleagues to eat at Maxwells. The setting is subdued but welcoming. The meals included unique chef creations and were well presented. Service was excellent and food was served hot. The only shortcoming was the consideration for those of us who like our food more plain with fewersauces, etc. my swordfish was tasty and very... More

First time that I have been there. Service was good and the ambience was like being in a friendly neighborhood. A little pricey but I have been in pricier places. We had the Mahi Mahi and Buffalo meatballs as appetizers. The only complaint that I have about the appetizers was the small quantity in relation to the price. I was... More

My husband & I have to stop by when in the Fargo area just so we can get our Maxwells fix in. The food & drinks here are simply exquisite. Our favorite appetizer is the ahi tuna. You just have to try it & you will soon be hooked (no pun intended). I had the lobster fettuccine which was rich... More
