My friends and I went to Max Brenner's for my birthday and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was so helpful and nice. She helped my friend who is gluten free pick out things she could eat .I got the salmon which was delicious! But best of all were the desserts. My two friends got sundaes which were huge! So... More

I decided to try their drinks rather than desserts and they were really good! Was recommended by the server to get the Alice milkshake (since I love salted caramel) and it was rich enough to be a shared dessert. On another visit I had the mexican hot chocolate and that too was delicious. I'm glad they use good quality chocolate... More

Just happened upon this restaurant after a morning at The Strand Bookstore. What a fun place to eat lunch and enjoy the chocolate atmosphere. Our meals were so good they didn't leave a lot of room for dessert but we left satisfied none the less. It also looked like a great place to stop by for a chocolate cocktail pick... More

Despite the fact that I've been there a few times I'm still enchanted by the thought of a restaurant dedicated entirely to chocolate. Well not entirely, you can eat your savouries too although I don't recommend it if you're a real chocolate addict. Because the servings are so huge...you're not going to have any space in your stomach to enjoy... More

Their bacon Mac and cheese was soo good!! For dessert, I had the fondue and of course that didn't disappoint. Make sure you make reservations as this place can get... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our way to the movies and made reservations for the following night. The chocolate was amazingly sweet and thick in the hot chocolate. The Salted Caramel Pudding was fantastic, especially with the whipped cream. The waffle sandwiches were unique and satisfying. The service was great, especially for such a packed house. I would go...

Diabetic coma inducing shake. We had the chocolate hazelnut shakes. So delicious, so sweet, so amazing. The decadence. It came up to about $16 for the 2. The glass it came in was super cute, especially if your an Alice in Wonderland fan. If your just getting shakes I'd sit at the bar, definitely more room. One drawback, the tables... More

Loved this place! It's an upscale chocolate lounge with a fun twist! They have a full bar & dinner menu on top of the outrageous desserts....had an awesome mojito & the chicken & goat cheese salad on the waffle is to die for....& the desserts....oh the desserts! Definitely worth the trip to union square, just be prepared to wait about... More
