The food was not hot or even warm. Seating was definitely at more then 50% capacity. It felt crowded not something you want during a pandemic. We hD a stroller which we didn't mind closing they said we can keep it open that they had space. Then they proceeded to put us at the table near the bathrooms and kitchen! First yuck 🤮 , second there is so much foot traffic from the kiction not an appropriate spot to place a family with 2 small children..Tbh my bill came out to 75$ it overall was OK for a lunch trip but would not spend my money here again go elsewhere. There's alot of local places that can provide you more personal space.
Great place food was good service was great. I would definitely go again
Great service and amazing food!
The food was so good to begin with but the waiter himself is what really made the experience even greater please give that man a raise. I believe his named was Julio, he was an absolutely great server. And with the restaurant being so packed we still got our food in a great time. Will definitely be back.
Waiter forgot to put our order in the computer. We were there for 2 hours. Then he couldn’t find a box to bring us our check.
I arrived at 4:35 for my 4:45pm reservations and had to wait until 5:15 for a table. Once seated, my children and I were seated by a large group with a dog(not a service dog)! No one asked if we had allergies to anything. My daughter is allergic to dog hair. The food wasn’t great but not bad. We ordered steak, cheese burger and chicken Cesar salad. The waiters were great bu the host at the entrance should have done better.
Waitstaff should be wearing gloves in these times if they're to serve food to customers. Waiter didnt take our order until half an hour after we were seated and then proceeded with below subpar service.
The dessert is not worth the horrible experience.
My date was absolutely dying over The Waffle Celebration (I surprised him with the Choco Chunk, Muchies, and Hazelhut). Delicious! Perfect spot for a fun special occasion.
Service was excellent also the food was Great. Enjoyed the quiet and the atmosphere was excellent. I Would go Back again.
Our waiter was named jay or something like that and he was super sweet and nice
Overall I think this place is overrated. This was our first time here and it wasn’t all that great to be honest. My boyfriend had the steak which was extremely under seasoned and the potatoes weren’t that great either. I had the Mac and cheese with chicken and bacon which was honestly the best part of our dinner. We shared the Mac and cheese. It was flavorful and baked to perfection. We also had the bbq chicken wings as a starter, that was great also! Nice crispy flavorful wings. The service was mediocre to say the least, however, she wasn’t the worst we’ve had. The ambiance and setting was nice. We eat out often and Max Brenner will not be on our top 10 dine in places.
Im A Chef & I'm Alway Like WOW
This Would Be My 6th Time in 2 months and it's still hands down top Two experiences I've ever had from the food to the staff the vibes are beautiful I highly recommend

Mother's Day Delight
Made a reservation online...was seated right away. Seating was spaced out and in more crowded areas like the upstairs there were also plastic partitions.
Our server Josh was fantastic...not overbearing but attentive...and let us take our time. Food was delicious.My son had the stuffed french toast, which I need to try next time as it looked-and smelled delicious ...dessert was awesome as always. We ordered the fondue and extra marshmallows as the kids had a great time roasting.
Eveything was amazing, highly recommend the waffle celebration, most delicious waffles I have ever had! The chocolate martini was also great. Mac and cheese= Amazing. everything was great! Can’t wait to go back
Wow! Wow! Wow! Despite the minimum meal options, the food was delicious! And of course, not to forget to mention the dessert!!! We ordered the classic fondue and it was so yummy. Went with my family, hubby and two kids and the dessert was perfect. I ordered a cappuccino and it was creamy. Everything was so good! When we got home, we were all talking about the food and the dessert. We are definitely returning! Thank you.
We loved our first experience here years ago but were super disappointed this time. It’s not so much that it was bad...but that about 3/4 the menu was missing. The food was ok, service was ok, and Covid measures were good. I get that maybe with Covid the menu may have to be shortened, but I checked the website before we left and it was the same huge menu...what we got was 1 page of actual food—if you take off breakfast items there were maybe 9 savory things to choose from. This was a huge disappointment and misleading on the site. If we would have seen this menu we would not have come. The waffle sandwiches were our favorite and they were all gone, as was the extensive list of flatbreads and many of the burgers. When we asked we were just told “we don’t have that anymore” and when we asked if a burger could come on a waffle, same thing “we don’t do that.” I assure you with this tiny menu, missing all the foods that made this restaurant “different” and stand out, we will not be back.
Food quality has dipped since my last visit there, but still a very good time.
Isaac was amazing!
Great hot chocolate and pizza, really good unexpected
Great place. Loved it in Boston but it's closed, so glad I got to go to NY location. Great staff too.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time. It was here first time and our server made it such a memorable experience
This was the first time at this establishment with my friends and we will be back!!! The food, the service, everything was amazing!!
Great place and food was amazing. Cost was pretty good too.

We will be back. Thank you so much
Love Max Brenner! Great to get back to indoor dining. Our server was very friendly and the food was great. Our teenager son’s fave restaurant. We will be back!
Daughters 8th birthday she loved it!
Honestly, great food, great service, but it is really for people who love a sweet breakfast. If you're a savory breakfast person, they certainly have great options for you, but it uniquely cators towards the most indulgent and decadent of sweet breakfasts. which is wonderful.
Food was fantastic and dessert was perfect! Highly recommended!
Steak could of been better . Overall was happy and wasn’t too expensive like i thought it would be . Def recommend
Amazing and lovely experience at Max Brenner. Service was really fast and food was awesome 🤩
Love this place. The portions are huge. The service is always friendly and above all the chocolate is amazing!!!
