One of the absolute best experiences i have ever had. Amazingly creative menu, superb food, excellent atmosphere, brilliant service. What more could a person ask for? Visited this restaurant for dinner and for breakfast and wasn't disappointed at either. A must when in New York!

This place is so amazing. We went around 9pm on a Sunday night and it was packed! We waited about half an hour ( not bad)! The staff is VERY knowledgeable and very friendly. Our waiter, Francis, was super fun and knowledgeable and you can tell he enjoyed talking with people. The desserts were amazing. While we were waiting for... More

Four of us went here after a bad experience at the continental midtown. We got dessert and it was amazing. This really made our night. We had a fantastic waitress and it was a great experience. I would definitely go back. We were all completely satisfied with our desserts.

On a recent lunch visit, we experienced both good and not so good items: Good: I ordered the chicken and goat cheese waffle salad, one of the few items without chocolate - and it was quite good, far surpassing expectations; service was friendly and relatively prompt with the server making suggestions of what was good and how filling certain items...

Nothing special, great concept but not good application. It could have been a great value proposition, but nothing special really. I eat a pizza with chocolate and banana and a milkshake. Doesn't worth the time or money.

I visited Brenner on the advice of a friend. I must say I was really dissapointed. The atmosphere is that of a typical chain restaurant and does not justify its reputation. I ate a grilled chicken panini which was ok, however service was quite slow. If you are to visit Brenner do so for a quick dessert.

We had the best time celebrating my daughter's 15th birthday while on vacation in NYC. Great food, amazing deserts. Overall a great spot for celebrations.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
