    Great Food, Poor Service

    Loved the food. Some of the best I've had in a while. Drinks were also delicious and strong. Went on a weedy afternoon and we were one of 4 tables in the entire place. That being said, the waitstaff took exceptionally long to deliver food and drinks. With an almost empty restaurant it was really shocking that it took so long for us to get our orders.

    poor hot chocolate

    So sweet you'd wonder whether they add it to hide the bad quality of chocolate they use. Two sips from this hot chocolate is guaranteed to give you a sugar rush for the next 24 hours. What's up with overdosing products with sugar in the US? Do people really have a strict linear correlation between sugar and quality when it comes to desserts? had to throw away the overpriced hot chocolate - better keep the health at least!

    Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate!

    Their menu is great and very innovative. They have incorporated chocolate in foods that you normally wouldn't think of- such as Chocolate pizza and chocolate dusted fries- but everything is AMAZING! The staff was also super friendly. They gave us suggestions about their favorite dishes and they were extremely nice when we asked to shoot inside of the restaurant. If you are a chocolate lover you MUST go to Max Brenner Chocolate restaurant, you are going to feel like you are in the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"!

    Nothing to rave about

    This place is really noisy, and the food is pretty expensive. It is a trendy place everyone goes to and there is a second floor. I got the pita dip and belgian waffle, good but nothing to rave about. I feel pretty indifferent about this place.

    I always go to Max Brenner when ever I get the chance. Some of the tables are close together which makes it awkward between you and a stranger but the food is great, it's reasonably priced and the unique desserts are totally . I strongly recommend the hot chocolate. It's like drinking a chocolate bar!

    Undoubtedly the best place in Midtown!

    I went to Max Brenner - Chocolate by the Bald Man - on a Saturday afternoon around 3:30. The place was packed full with not an empty table in sight. We had a brief wait of 10 minutes or so. Once we sat down at the table our server was over immediately. It was the best service I ever had at a NYC restaurant. He had a bubbly personality, knew the menu inside and out, and helped us make decisions on what to get! My table started off with the beer-battered Vidalia onion rings with the chocolate ranch sauce. The rings were incredible and the sauce was ehh, okay. Something about chocolate in a savory dipping sauce didn't sit quite right with me, but I'm sure others would be delighted with it. Then, we had main courses: Sesame Salmon, Steak Panini, and Margherita Panina. The waffle fries were out of this world. The only downfall was the small serving of the fries.. We wanted more because they were so delicious! Then, the best part.. Dessert! We got the Banana and Hazelnut Cream Crepe, Chocolate Pizza (with the "works"), and the Chocolate Eggrolls. Everything was absolutely incredible! The crepe was definitely my favorite and next time I hope to try the waffles. All in all, the atmosphere, service, and food were outstanding and I'd recommend Max Brenner to ANYONE going to the lovely City of New York. P.S. On the way out, we stopped at the mini gift shop and got chocolate syringes to take home! Yes, chocolate syringes! A huuuuge syringe filled with their delightful milk chocolate that you microwave for 10 seconds then can squeeze into your mouth.. amazing!

    eat in great- take out stinks

    I love this place. It is one of my favorite places in NYC. The prices are on the high side, but really not worse then anywhere else in NY and the portions are huge. I have never had a bad meal here and have always found the wait staff to be polite. My biggest complaint is the take out. The take out/counter staff is nasty. It is not just one person either. I have taken out food multiple times and have dealt with multiple people and they have all been extremely rude. If you are going to go, eat in and avoid the take out at all costs.
