We had Sunday brunch, each of us having a hot chocolate as well. The Dark Mexican Hot chocolate is to die for, and the waitress added extra spice for me. Had an omelette with potatoes and a sugar biscuit, with a side of chocolate. Delicious! But so much food.

Ordered food to be delivered to office building next door for client lunch. Virtually everything was wrong.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night....3 adults and a 6 & 8 year old. Had a 7:00 reservation and the place was full. Not much later the crowd thinned out, the noise level went down and we had a very pleasant meal. Our server was excellent and helped guide the choices. This is really a place for dessert. They...

I was in Philly for a romantic getaway and stumbled across this restaurant and immediately knew we had to eat here. After dinner one evening we decided to go here for dessert, what we didn't know was that it was the last day of restaurant week. It was packed on a weekend night and the hostess said they weren't taking... More

We had an afternoon chocolate treat here, though there is a wide selection for full meals. If you're a chocolate lover, this is the place for you! Wide selection of chocolate drinks and snacks, it was difficult to decide what to have! They also sell packages of chocolate, which are a good treat to bring home.

Overall atmosphere was energetic and the food was pretty good. What I did not care for was feeling rushed during and towards the end of our dinner. While I know it was busy, there was no need to offer take home boxes for leftovers while we were still eating. I think this establishment would be better suited strictly for cocktails... More

Couldn't give the 5th star because the service is ridiculously slow! Painfully slow and we had the first reservation of the day. It doesn't get worse than that. My son had the mac and cheese burger it was fantastic. Their salad was not great. The chocolate experience was fantastic, even with our dry waitress. If they had a bit more... More

The atmosphere is very fun. It is mood lighted with lots of decorations and a chocolate store in front for those just seeking that. We split a burger and each had our own dessert- smore concoction and chocolate cake. There is quite a dessert selection for anyone with a sweet tooth. The food wasn't astounding, but good.

I really enjoyed going to this shop with my family. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat. The service was attentive. I was disappointed with the gift shop. The staff did not have a good understanding of the products. I was looking for gluten free and nut free for one of my purchases and would have appreciated a little more help... More

We went here and was not disappointed. You walk in and can smell the chocolate immediately. We had our 6 and a 9 year old children with us. The kids got hot chocolates and their mugs are really cool. No handles and made to hold with both hands. My husband got the White Russian and said it was delicious. For... More

Known worldwide as the ultimate destination for chocolate, Max Brenner is the perfect place to eat… and indulge. Fill up on Really Crunchy Mac & Cheese, a pressed waffle sandwich or our ever-popular Brenner Burger. But save room, because the main course is dessert. Experience chocolate to the fullest and enjoy hot chocolate, Choctails, fondues, sugar waffles and more. Our most iconic dishes are served in specially-designed ceramic utensils, turning chocolate consumption into a chocolate ceremony. So double dip, lick your fingers and forget to share because at Max Brenner there aren’t rules – all you have to do is really love chocolate.
