Max Brenner - Union Square
Great time!Good time for a special night. My daughter graduated from Fordham Graduate School with her MSW and she chose to celebrate here since it's one of our favorites. Good food and excellent chocolate = fun night!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNot just a chocolate haven.This was my second time at Max Brenner's and it was just as good as the first time. We decided to order different things this time and we were not let down. Everything tasted amazing and makes you want to come back and try more things. Service is always great and attentive.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMChocolate lovers paradiseIf you love chocolate or even if you don't you can't miss this place! Everything from the drinks to appetizers main course to dessert is artfully presented and so delicious that you'll forget how close you are to the table next to you!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMits was greatthe food was amazing the only problem is that i had to wait 30 minutes to get a table even though i made a reservation before i went.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBEYONCE APPROVESNow that this caught your eye, Max Brenner is quite the lovely restaurant. I came mostly for the infamous dessert, but was pleasantly surprised to be waited on by the most nicest waitors/waitresses I've every experienced. And the entrees were very good too! And of course, their dessert did not fail my expectations. But it is very very busy and packed, so the noise level is high. And I recommend that you make online reservations so you can get a seat, seriously their the best things ever, I didn't have to wait 5 seconds.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood-tastic!I think it's very important to make reservations to this restaurant because it's always busy. It's better to be safe than sorry!
When I arrived at Max Brenner, the hostess greeted me with hospitality. The waitress was great too. He checked up on us to see if everything was okay, if we wanted anything else to eat or drink. He paid attention to us.
Great experience5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMA sweet tooth's delight!I finally found a free day and an excuse to come here. It lives up to it's "sweet" reputation. The food was fantastic, the waitress was a doll! My s'mores dessert was pleasant to the eye as it was to my palette. My sweet tooth was very happy! I hope I can make there again very soon so I can shop the store and try another wonderful meal. Thank you for a great experience for my cousin who came to visit from Colombia and myself - a native NYer.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a fabulousGreat place for a fabulous dessert.

Although we loved our sinful and tasty meal, the restaurant was crawling with families as it was Mother's Day. The service was still great, but I will avoid holidays in the future to minimize contact with wailing children.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy kid now expects ChocolateMy kid now expects Chocolate on everything!! Lots of fun. Good burger and sandwich, and of course, dessert. Can't go wrong if you have kids, or want to have some fun as a couple.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's okay to cheat once in a while.We went there for a Sunday brunch on Mother's Day and we had a great time. I accidentally made my reservation at the wrong time but when we got there, they accommodated us right away without any hassle. The place was vibrant and staffs were all very friendly.
The food and shakes were all great. The burger was surprisingly delicious. My wife felt little guilty after all the carbs and sugar but I think it was worth it. We will definitely go back again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!!This is my favorite spot in NYC. Every time my friends come to visit a have to bring them here.

Chocolate and food!It's like going to Willy Wonka with a golden ticket. Make a reservation, but the food and the chocoalate are outstanding.

Our experience was amazing! Waff;e sandwiches were delicious as well as the mac and cheese & milkshakes. Fun lively atmoshere, servers were friendly and helpful.

We've been here many times before, but this was her first time here and we could not have asked for a better experience. The food was fantastic as always and our server was very nice and super accommodating to our special requests throughout the meal. Thanks a lot to everyone who made this a very special lunch for our mum!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt´s a New York visit must!I noticed Max Brenner the last time I was i NY, two years ago and have recommended it to my friends, going there, ever since. This time, when we booked our trip to NY, Max Brenner was one of three restaurants that we had to return to. Don´t miss the Tiramisu cocktail and the chocolate fondue. The only negative information that I have to give is that it´s a bit noisy but that also means kid friendly. Bottom line; I love Max Brenner!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Good food but even better deserts! Four of us shared the Fondue for two and was great!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Own Willy Wonka ExperienceThis restaurant is amazing. My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and we had so much fun. I read the Max Brenner story in the menu and it really is just how he describes. There is such a Willy Wonka experience- fun with food and chocolate! We laughed so much while making our s'mores and drinking the hot chocolate.
Everyone should go.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great from drinksFood was great from drinks to dessert. Would come back but maybe not during tourist season as it was mobbed.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is awesome We tryThis place is awesome We try to go whenever we are in the city Great atmosphere great food and always a good time chocolate lovers you gotta go here5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHow can you go wrong with chocolateThe answer is, you can't. Max Brenner's does chocolate justice. I've been here many times before, but had never ordered anything but their desserts. This time, we ordered the 'Sliced & Diced Steak “Pillow” Panini' which comes with delicious waffle fries. Delicious. We shared this between two people to leave enough room for the 'Euphoria Peanut Butter Chocolate Fudge Sundae' which is as peanut buttery as it needs to be. Completely delightful meal. Will come back again and again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDessert for NightWent out just for dessert, and to say amazing is not good enough. Fun, relaxing, delcious!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMReally coolChocolate lovers this is a must. These deserts are off the chain5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointingI am a huge coco fan.

I love their sloppy max...must try!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMCHOC-O-LATE!!!!!Oh yea, I LOVE this place and love chocolate! The food was very very good but the dessert's are to die for. I had a huge dessert and couldn't quit eating it and ate every bite, including drinking the melted chocolate.... (couldn't help myself...) I will definitely be back and I hope soon!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Chocolate LoversThe food was fine, nothing out of the ordinary. Their specialties are the trademark chocolate desserts. My daughters want to go their anytime we are in NYC to get dessert and they love the chocolate chai tea.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMcozy comfy restoEverytime I dine in Max Brenner, I always feel ecstatic and sets me in a good mood. The lovely music in the background adds the coziness of the place. My boyfriend and I loved your mood sunday pasta and fondue treats. This place is not only for lovers but definitely for friends and family, where every individual would feel relaxed, pampered and promotes bonding. Your staff are accomodating, informative and pleasant. I had recommended others to come and try the experience here, and gladly, they loved it. Thanks and hope you'll have more new desserts in the future and continue to make customers happy.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMearly dinner with out of town guestWorried it would be a crowded scene on a Friday evening we opted for an earlier dinner at 5:30. We made a reservation the same morning and arrived to find a huge event in Union Sq. delaying us by 15 mins. Nonetheless, we were greeted warmly and shown quickly to our table. The restaurant was busy but not crowded. Service was friendly, and helpful. Decor is great , food solid with plenty of non-chocolate fare offered so ok if you aren't into a 10,000 calorie meal. Everything was delicious and surprisingly not the cloying sweet, heavy meal I feared! Our teenage guests were giddy with the whole experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for girls, dates & dessertGreat for girls, dates & dessert lovers. Drink menu is excellent and very fun for us to all get small apps and big sweets -4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for families.Great spot for families. Great food for mom and dad; creative and fun ways they present the food. Given its proximity to Union Square, I strongly recommend making a reservation.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my 10 year old daughter..itI took my 10 year old daughter..it is her new favorite restaurant. She loved the "make your own hot chocolate" and the chocolate pizza.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my daughter here afterI took my daughter here after two weeks of testing. The server was wonderful and made her feel very special. The food was delicious as always. The Willy Wonka feel to the restaurant makes it feel magical to kids, but unlike many restaurants that cater to children the food is actually good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI mean best chocolate around.I mean best chocolate around. And who really doesn't like chocolate.
Food is also very good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprised the kids with brunchSurprised the kids with brunch here on a Saturday. So much fun! Lived up to its expectations.

The food was very good and the desserts were delicious.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMax Brenner Chocolate FactoryI took my mom & my daughter & it was wonderful. We had dessert & by far the best chocolate I've ever tasted. Thank you for the wonderful experience.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNot perfection but closeThis is the first time I stepped foot in Max Brenners. The place seem warm and comforting. The restaurant was so flexible since I changed the timing and size of my table like 5 times in the last 12 hours. When I came to the restaurant one person short, the hostess was very understanding. Once arriving at our table, it took the waiters forever to come and take our order. Our waitress, Brittany, was so charismatic . The food took some time to come. I ordered a Benners Burger which came with waffle fries. The fries had absolutely no "cocoa powder" or whatever and tasted horrible. The burger on the other hand was to die for. The Oreo milkshake was delicious too but needed whipped cream. Overall, some disappointments but definitely coming again!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my birthdayWe celebrated my birthday here with a large group. Despite being a chocolate themed restaurant, the food itself was excellent. I highly recommend the corn croquettes appetizer. Of course the chocolate was amazing - at our table we tried several chocolate drinks (martinis, hot chocolates, etc.) and everything was excellent. The staff was great as well - one of our burgers was not cooked as ordered and the staff was very accommodating.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMdelicious. loved everything.delicious. loved everything. brought two people for their first time and they loved it. onl complaint was i didn't love the home fries. swap for waffle fries!

We are so grateful and it's always awesome to go to Max Brenner! Delicious food and of course dessert4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious DessertAMAZING! Best dessert I've had in awhile, but the main courses aren't close to lacking. Definitely worth the wait and the money. The worst part was deciding what to order for dessert! Definitely would love to go back someday.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the tripLots of tourists, but Max Brenner's retains the feel and atmosphere of a local eatery in many regards. Service is excellent, menu is simple but well-prepare and served in very appealing formats. Try the BALT sandwich for example. Desserts are over the top, both in price and in quality. Worth the trip overall.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMax Brenner's has the mostMax Brenner's has the most tasty chocolate dishes with a full menu of savouries for people who haven't the sweet tooth to fill their stomachs with sugar. Drinks are a bit pricey but unique and strong, so worth trying... Then again it's Manhattan so this could be considered cheap for such fine drinks. Overall, one of our favourites!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a wonderful experienceI had a wonderful experience there, however I wished there was more help in the area where you are allowed to purchase little trinkets such as candy, bath products, etc. The area was very crowded and there was only one person one person working who was not only working the sales floor but also the cash register.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was very good @ resonableFood was very good @ resonable price, Dessert was amazing and will make me come back
