Anyone know how much the corkage fee is at Max Restaurant in Sherman Oaks? Just trying to figure out if it's worth bringing our own bottle for a dinner party there tonight...Thanks!

    fwiw, when i was there about 6 months ago they served a number of very reasonably priced good wines. depending on how much they charge for corkage, you may actually do better by ordering a bottle from their list.

        It was $12 in July.
        They have a nice list, but if yours is a very good selection, then go ahead and bring it, but do check their list ahead of time to make sure there is no conflict.

          Here is the actual list, and down close to the bottom is the Shannon, which for $29 is really quite tasty, satisfies a middle of the road tastebud, and will go with many items on the menu.
          Also, if there is any Stags Leap Petite Sirah left, at $58, it is a really good bottle as well.
