Max Brenner - Union Square Ratings and Reviews
I took my out for valentine’s day and we both very much loved the experience. Although it was packed on valentine’s day we were seated 7-10 mins after the time we arrived and gave our names. Our waiter was extremely friendly and constantly checked up on us. The food was amazing and it came in a timely fashion! I definitely recommend the mac and cheeses served at Max Brenner. it’s amazing! I have no complaints.
Overall, it was a great experience. I went on Valentine’s Day and had the perfect evening. The drinks were beautiful, the food was delicious and the fondue is to die for. Additionally, they kept progressively dimming the lights to really set the mood. Quite a lovely evening it was.
Max Brenner is one of my new favorite restaurants. I went here with my girlfriends for my 21st birthday had such a great time! We got so much food and many drinks but somehow still didn’t break our bank accounts. I was pleased by everything from the service to the ambiance to food. The food was delicious and the dessert was even better. I will recommend Max Brenner to anyone and will be coming back with any excuse I can find!
Had a 6pm reservation for two and we waited about 15 minutes to be seated. The bottom floor was decorated so nicely for Valentine's Day but we got stuck in a corner tiny booth upstairs by the dishes which made it very noisy and uncomfortable and didn't get to enjoy the romantic atmosphere. Food was mediocre.
The Max Benedict was delicious! And pretty large portion too. We didn’t try any of the delicious looking chocolate creations but we will definitely come back to try. Overall, the food and ambience was great. But our waiter was rude and had an attitude when we asked for anything from him, like more coffee or ketchup. The other restaurant staff overall seemed pleasant though but our waiter left much to be desired.
The waiter had the best intentions but he kept forgetting everything we had to ask for every single thing, cutlery, napkins, water, to clean the table, they brought us food and we didn’t have space in the table because nobody took the previous course. I had a chicken sandwich and the chicken was hard as a rock. Good intentions but bad service
We had a reservation for 2 at 8:15 on a Saturday night and were seated by 8:30. Our server was fantastic: very friendly, attentive, and fast. We had the Urban S'mores which were fun to make and to eat and were delicious as well. This place was extremely loud and but the low lighting kept it from being completely over-stimulating. This was definitely a fun place to celebrate a birthday or other fun occasion. But it seemed like that larger parties were experiencing long waits even with reservations, so plan accordingly.
Even with reservations we had to wait. According to the host, who was rude, they do not hold tables on Friday. My friend was five minutes late and we were told we had to wait for a table. When we asked why, he was very defensive and mumbled something under his breath when we asked him to confirm how long we would need to wait. The manager Mohan tried to smooth things over but his efforts were condescending. I will not return.
We came here to get after-dinner desserts for our two year anniversary. We had to wait a while for our table in which we had reservations for. We ordered milkshakes, which took 45 minutes to come out. The place was loud and crowded, and they seated us at a location that didn’t seem to be a real spot for a table. Servers were constantly bumping into us. The bathrooms were absolutely filthy; I felt like I was at a truck stop. Our dessert was fine enough, but the whole process took nearly two hours, and was so expensive and unpleasant, it was not worth it.
I took my grandson here to celebrate his birthday. We had a 6:15 reservation and were seated within 10 minutes. Our waiter, Dominic, was friendly, attentive and efficient. The restaurant is crowed and noisy - to be expected. It was nice to watch how hard the wait staff worked and everyone had a smile. Our dinner was good - I had the flatbread pizza and my grandson had the cheesesteak - both quite good. The sundae for dessert was wonderful - huge!!
Not a gourmet restaurant, but a fun place to try.
The service was poor from the Host that checked us in. To the waiter that served us all night. I stated That it was my wife’s birthday when I set Up the reservation under special occasion. The bathrooms were so dirty makes you not want to even go in to use it. Our server didn’t even fill up our water until we called him over to us (after an hour of us being there) although he walked passed us multiple times throughout the night. We ordered dessert but no happy birthday was sung to my wife although I specified that it was her birthday during my reservation. I Won’t recommend this place to anyone.
