Chocolatier, but great spot for brunch! Highly recommend the Oreo hot chocolate for dessert and the savory lunch items were great.
YUMMY! Everything was delicious & presented nicely. Our waiter was very nice & helpful too!
A great place to take someone who loves chocolate, but also a solid place to take anyone if you just need to eat.
Small portions, overpriced, slow service, definitely not what I remembered at all. Will not be back
Great hidden tourist spot for a late sweet treat!
Overpriced dated and dusty. Wallpaper pealing off the wall. Same candy in display jars from 10+ years ago. Noted on reservations it was grandbaby bday. No candles on desert pizza which got thrown in the trash along with her beverage when we stepped away to use restroom.
Their menu was limited (maybe due to covid) but we all still enjoyed everything we ordered. Our server, Elijah, was great.
Food was good, we wanted to order dessert but our server took almost 40 mins to get back to us and we didn't want to stay longer. Took another 35 minutes to pay and leave.
Understaffed!! Our waitress did her best, but she had no help.
- food was uncooked, poor service, bad seating.
Service was excellent but our table was a little messy but the waiter cleaned it immediately did not like the water bottle but otherwise my meal was excellent I also got dessert which also was excellent overall I had a wonderful experience and would return
Great place,great staff, great atmosphere, would recommend
Very rude person at the host stand. Clearly understaffed and everyone was stressed. Kacie was great. Took over an hour for food to come, seems silly for burgers and fries. Also, every surface is sticky, can't be clean. Would avoid.
Good was terrible, but service was good. Unfortunate to feel that we drove into the city for a delicious meal and wasted our time and money.
Cute place! Great food and service! Amazing chocolate desserts and drinks!
The food was just average and the chocolate tasted a little stale. The service, however, is exceptional. They were attentive, friendly and fast. Unfortunately great service isn’t a reason to return for so-so food.
From the time we entered the door everything was perfect. The hostess greeted us with a smile soon as i said my name she knew i had a reservation and made all the requirements happen sense i was dining with two little ones. The waiter was on point remembered our order down to the drinks psid special attention to my two kids. It was all wonderful.
It was super hot and you can tell that the staff is effected by the pandemic. Overall was ok
Great restaurant good food the chocolate was so good and my server was awesome
Great as always!! Love the Chocolate cocktails & Cant go wrong with any Desert! Pecan Caramel Chocolate is over all time favorite!
Good food, menu larger online than the printed menus... tables not cleared until ready to be used for new people to be seated.
Not worth it except for desert until they get the regular menu back. The current “covid” menu is incredibly limited
Trey was a great server, the desserts were really yummy. We only wish we lived closer to come again soon!
food was really good. the chocolate was sublime. but very noisy restaurant. lots of kids so a noisy but happy place
Took my Grandaughter for her birthday. Food was very good, atmosphere is great. She had been there before so she knew what to expect and was not disappointed. Had chocolate mess for dessert, Delicious!
I feel this place has gone downhill. My kids and I used to love coming here for special occasions. We came here for my youngest’s 17th bday (we had a reservation). The hostess was great, as was our server. However, due to issues in the kitchen, my kids got their food a good 20 minutes before my husband and I. Same with the dessert…they came out staggered. For the prices they charge, I expect better than that. Also, the place needs some renovations. The walls look dirty and the paint is peeling, the tables just look cheap. If you’re going to charge so much, I expect a nicer looking place. It’s like they’ve given up. But props to our server (I forget his name) because he was hussling and never acted stressed.
Went here to celebrate my grandmother’s 80th birthday. The waitress was kind and prompt. However, the booth was really dirty when we were seated. Also the cookie dessert ordered was quite hard. Other than that we had fun and enjoyed to atmosphere.
The food was good , the service could’ve been a little faster , but overall , we had a good experience .
We love max brenner! Our service and the food was great. We were just a little disappointed that they have knocked some of our favorites off their menu. Hoping for them to expand their menu a bit soon!
Chocolate martinis are so delicious and a must. The Mac and cheese is so gooey and delicious.
I loved it here!!! Food was absolutely amazing (both dinner and dessert). Relatively quiet, got a bit loud for my grandma who uses hearing aids but definitely workable. My only complaint is that I live too far to make regular visits!
Great food, fantastic service. The design of the restaurant makes noise travel, and because it’s a restaurant that attracts children, it can be loud if children are unruly, or there are a number of them.
But really cool concept, and the food is actually really good. The adult drinks are really amazing. You’ll want to drink them because of how yummy they look, but you won’t want to touch them because of how beautifully they are presented.
A real gem. Highly recommended.
Our server was very attentive and friendly. Food was also very good and kids and adults both enjoyed it!
You can tell that they have been impacted by the pandemic. It took awhile for a waitress to take our orders (we ended up only getting drinks).
The service was horrible. The food was very good though.
Parking took me over 1 hour to find. The food selection was limited and I was really disappointed that it did not have the menu items that the other locations had (in specific especially the waffle sampler). Overall great experience would love to come again
Elijah our server was great. Burger was delicious. A little over cooked but the quality of beef was very good. Friend had Caesar salad with chicken. Not much chicken-comes chopped up on the salad. Cocktails were very weak. We had 5 and they all were very weak. I’ve experienced this at other places too. Makes me wonder if restaurants are trying to recoup after covid by making weak drinks.
I had the smoked bbq wings and white chocolate chai tea, they were both some of the tastiest things I’ve ever put into my mouth. The service was friendly and quick.
Went with a party of 6 for my daughter's 16th birthday. Had a reservation and confirmed. They gave our reservation away to a party they thought was us. We waited over 30 mins. The hostesses were extremely rude. I don't know how they have jobs. Servers were nice, but food and drinks took so long.48 mins for onion rings? Did you need to go to the store to get them? Will probably not return. Bad sweet 16 dinner.
