    I had the crepes, my husband had the French toast waffles. We both had lattes and everything was very good. We arrived at 10 and it wasn’t very busy. Great service and the chocolate shop was great too.

    My daughter and three of her friends celebrated her 17th birthday at Max Brenner. We parents were banished to a separate table. :) The staff was incredible, even telling us when all the teens did was order dessert, not dinner. And without prompting, our server put a sparkler in my daughter's chocolate pizza and led everyone in a chorus of "Happy Birthday." Sadly, I'm on a diet and couldn't have ANY treats but still, my chicken was pretty great! Definitely an excellent choice for birthdays.

    Dinner with our daughter and granddaughter - one of her favorite places! Food was delicious. Our server was outstanding. Wish I had gotten his name. We felt so taken care of. He brought our granddaughter a shake with a birthday candle to celebrate her 21st birthday. All around another wonderful experience!

    Our experience the night of 7/17 was leading up to a 5 star one until our dessert came. It was my husband's birthday and the server promised sparklers with his dessert but his baked cookie came out lukewarm and without sparklers. When he was halfway finished, servers came to our table with ice cream and sparklers and put them all in front of me. And to top it off, their birthday song ended early and they took off. Our server later told us they all left because their "manager was mad"? What an awkward experience, and the manager never came by to apologize or offer a discount.

    Despite the overwhelming scent of the smoke of the many fondue fires that seemed to be a favorite of most of the diners, Max Brenner was amazing! The food was absolutely delicious and the dessert (fondue share platter) was PERFECT! Service was exceptional and the seating and noise level was great as well. Highly recommend!

    We received a very warm and friendly welcome by the hostess and our server. The gentleman who brought us our food made sure that we got what we ordered. The food was delicious and I recommended the macaroni and cheese with bacon and chicken!❤ The smells were just wonderful and I was glad that they had dark chocolate, even though I didn't have room in my stomach for dessert.

    I used to come here a lot before COVID and hadn’t visited in a few years but was disappointed to see their menu is MUCH smaller now than it used to be with only a few savory options for dining left. I ordered salmon because I used to love getting that pre pandemic and it was sub par served with burnt veggies. I believe chefs may have changed over the years too so this didn’t live up to the food I remembered and loved here. :(

    Everything was amazing from the food to our server. I think they may have revamped the kitchen bc the menu has be downsized but the quality of the food is way better. The prices are fair and a great place to celebrate special occasions bc they will stick a sparkler in your dessert to celebrate- for free! Excellent! The only thing I would criticize is our hostess. She was cold didn’t smile and looked like she hates her job. I noticed she was this way with several customers she seated. Ppl would thank her and she would glare, not respond or smile and walk away. Not the best first impression. Maybe she was having a bad day? Personal trouble? Just a one off? Idk. But everything else amazing!
