I went here for dinner with some friends while in New York for a weekend. It was amazing! Since I'm a big sucker for chocolate, I loved their famous fountain! Also had their pizza, which was quite good. Definitely recommended!

So, no, it's not the best food I've ever had in NYC, but the grilled chicken on quinoa was decent and juicy. The chocolate martinis, however, were SOOOO delightful! After all, don't we come here for the chocolate and not the food? So, I made myself feel a little less guilty by eating healthy food along with the chocolate martinis,... More

From the moment you enter this restaurant all you can smell is chocolate. We had a really yummy burger here but the main attraction was the dessert. Deconstructed smores which was soooo good! If you are close by a must visit!

Our family - 5 adults, a 7 year old and a 4 year old - ate here on a Wednesday at 4:30 pm. First of all, the hostesses were rather rude and unwelcoming, and would not seat the first 5 until the other 2 arrived. With small children, and 90 degrees outside, not a pleasant beginning. But okay, two of... More

Service was outstanding and the desserts were mouth-watering. Go for a late night after dinner/show dessert, you won't be disappointed!

My niece is a chocoholic so Max Brenner's was a must-visit for us. We were there at Christmas time. Needless to say, it was a zoo. We had a reservation but still had to wait a bit. There were wall to wall people. Once the table was ready we were led upstairs which was very comfortable and far less crowded.... More

We travel to NYC often and lived there for many years. We were excited to bring our kids here for a special treat after dinner as we had never been before. What a disappointment!!! We got seated upstairs which was so ugly in decor - low ceilings, bright lights - and loud. The service was less than friendly or helpful.... More

We ordered the Cuban style sandwiches that were made in a waffle. They were excellent. We had the 80s milkshake and the hot chocolate, both yummy. For dessert, we ordered a chocolate crepe- very good. It was a fun and tasty dinner.

I have eaten here in the past and it was great but the real draw to this place for me is the chocolate shots. They come in a syringe and are full of chocolate goodness! I would say the consistency is between pudding and mousse and it's not too rich. At only $5 a pop I can enjoy getting my... More

Go for breakfast! Food was really good and the hot chocolate and waffles were excellent. My son had the chocolate pizza, and had a great time. Coffees were excellent too.
