Our waitress was amazing and very attentive.
Best hot chocolate I have ever had!
For a Saturday get away date, it was awesome to be able to go there, actually be seated on time from reservation time. The service wasn't that great from our waiter, she tended to a lot of her other tables before us and kept forgetting to bring necessary items we needed to have a meal, napkins, utensils, etc. Not really happy with that but overall, I am definitely coming back to enjoy the chocolate martinis with friends and family. :)
The food was AMAZING! The atmosphere was fun and I’ve never in my life had such a decadent and rich chocolate experience. We will 100% be coming back! Everything was worth the price which I still found as doable and not overly expensive.
Was a decent experience. Pretty disappointed that sparklers were specifically requested for the birthday girl’s dessert and they brought it out with a small candle instead. We thought it was because they didn't have any but then saw later that another person got sparklers with their dessert so it felt like a choice.
Very cold restaurant! I couldn’t take my jacket off for the entire meal. Was greatly looking forward to the food based on a personal recommendation, so disappointed. Burger was ok but nothing special, churros were extremely over cooked, came with a lovely chocolate sauce though. Not the cheapest. Would not visit again
Sorry but it's not worth it. Especially if you have more than 4 in your party. Shoved upstairs in an uninviting space that doesn't even make you feel like you are out to eat. Maybe at a diner. Too bad we chose this place to celebrate my sons birthday and they did nothing to accommodate us. Will never go again. Food was just ok. Best part of the night was the waiter.
The food was great! The ambience could have been better. It was very loud in the restaurant.
It was my son’s birthday and he’s a chocoholic and what better way to celebrate a chocoholics birthday. He was super excited.
My son and I wanted to have the full Max Brenner experience without getting sick from too much food. So we shared a BALT sandwich, which was really tasty (fresh ingredients, crusty bread), and each ordered our own desserts, which, of course, is the real reason to come to Max Brenner. My son also ordered a hot chocolate (too much for me!) and his eyes rolled into the back of his head with pleasure. The waiter was super-nice. Service was a bit slow because it was crowded, but we highly recommend it and will return.
Delish and fun!!
Overall experience is was really great. Our waiter was really quick and attentive despite the restaurant being really crowded. The food was delicious and this definitely the place to go if you are a chocolate lover !
Hostess was very unprofessional and rude. Crowd waiting in front of the doors which is the entrance of the restaurant and looks very disorganized.
Food was nothing special. Too crowded. Too noisy. Too expensive.
Only go there for dessert during non peak hours.
Although we came 30 min late we still was able to be seated under current reservation! Thank you!!
We had an excellent attentive waiter. Great service and awesome food .
Service was great. Alfredo was ok. I wish they had more desserts with peanut butter.
Most restaurants can only do one thing well, so I was pleasantly surprised by how good our food was. Waiter could’ve been friendlier, but that doesn’t take away from how good the food or desserts were.
Great place for a date, family, and to have a good time. Downside is, it’s extremely noisy and space is limited.
Despite being NYC regulars this was our first visit. Overall it was just ok and I would probably not go back except possibly for dessert. It is very loud and cramped. Our food was fine-nothing terrible but also nothing fantastic. My daughter got the mac and cheese which was good. My husband and son both got desserts which were decadent and delicious. Our waiter was pleasant but not efficient.
It’s a great place for a date or a group outing the food is amazing and the staff is friendly, attentive and amazing.
They were not prepared for our party even though we had a reservation. They put together four tables that were uneven and dirty. The food was subpar. The server was great she remembered every order without writing it down and the food came out very quickly. This place needs a major overhaul on the interior it looks much older than many of its counterparts in the union square area.
Desserts are always awesome there and I love the Caesar Salad! It’s been awhile since I’ve been back here but the state of the restaurant seems to have gone down in its ascetics, just a bit. I’ll always continue coming back because I love their desserts! What happened to the ice cream bar dippers though?!?
Great place if you love chocolate
It was the first trip to NYC for my 12 year old grandson. I gave him a list of restaurants that I have been to on past NY visits and this was on the top of his list. It never disappoints. It is always the best and our server was exceptionable.
The bathrooms where in very bad shape, garbage overflowing, not enough toilet paper, it smelled. This made me question the state of the kitchen. I hope the improve otherwise they will lose my business .
This place is the Best! Outstanding service and the food is fabulous!
Very crowded during dinner time
My experience was wonderful. It was celebrating my birthday with my sister. Unfortunately the only issue we had was that we found a piece of plastic in our sunde and we waited an hour for an 8:30pm reservation, otherwise we had a wonderful experience and time. I was told you did something special for a birthday but we never got that. However, it may have been because how busy it was on a Saturday night. Overall, we had a wonderful experience here on Saturday.
We really enjoyed ourselves, food was delicious and so was our desert. I have already recommended Max Brenner to my family.
Come here bi-annually. Great vibe. Service was very good considering how crazy busy they were. Staff was attentive and caring, periodically checking in on us.
Only negative is my favorite sandwich the Best BALT was no longer the best. They changed the bread from white toast to ciabatta. The bread is now so hard you can barely take a bite without feeling like you’re gonna break your teeth. 😱
Please change it back or use softer bread. Thanks!
very good spot for just a dessert date, very lively and loud so you need to raise your voice a bit
Daughters 4th birthday. Wish it would have been more whimsical, fun ambiance. Service was ok but a little slow. Not sure if we would go out of our way to go back.
Great desserts. Tasty entrees. Portions are small.
The food, ambiance, and everything was amazing. Would definitely go back
It was a perfect restaurant to celebrate a birthday!!!
Absolutely delicious! Their food and desserts are all divine! Literally the most delicious food I’ve ever eaten. Please, do yourself a favor and eat here!
Usually come here for the desert and warm drinks. This time I tried their food and other items on the menu. Was not disappointed at all. Full of flavor, came on time and was delish, ordered more!
We had a great time there! Food was delicious and the staff was friendly. Can’t go wrong with chocolate!
Very good date spot for a late date night. We enjoyed the service as well as the food and especially the desert.
