Great Service, Great atmosphere, good food, awesome drinks and phenomenal desserts! A memorable experience. A must see destination spot in Union Square - Definitely a bucket list establishment. To top it all off request Josh as your server- hands down one of the best waiters my family and I have ever met! If you enjoy good food and chocolate don't... More

We went there for a desert, I had a chocolate sundae and a mocha, both very good (if you like sweet deserts) however I was really impressed with the (LOW) quality of the services! We had to call a waiter twice besides to pick up our own spoon since the guy brought the sundae and forgot the spoon. To get... More

Loved this place. Great ambience friendly service and the chocolates were to die for. What caught my attention is the chocolate pizza and it tasted great.

Their savory dishes are really good, but their desserts are the star of the meal. The restaurant is a tad on the loud side, and seating can be a bit uncomfortable because there is barely any space between some of the tables. The philly cheese steak sandwich was wonderful. Their waffle fries are well seasoned. Their dessert crepes are amazing!

You can't go here without having dessert, the highlight of the lunch. Great service and really good menu choice.

We had lunch here today. The main restaurant food is good, the Mac & Cheese is very light and can also recommend the turkey waffle sandwich. All desserts we tried were delicious. Unfortunately the AC wasn't working properly in all areas of the restaurant, and on a day of 30 degree heat this made for an uncomfortably sticky experience. The... More

The desserts are the main attraction, but their burgers are worth a try too as they are great. The desserts were really good as expected, would recommend the churros fondue

We have never been disappointed by a visit to Max's. I am in love with their Chicken and Goat Cheese Waffle Salad. Their burgers and flatbread are also terrific. The bonus - ending the meal with a wide range of desserts, like their crepes. BEST item on the menu: Italian thick hot chocolate. You'll never forget it.

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.
