Max Brenner - Philadelphia

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.

"We went here for lunch during Restaurant Week. The food was just blah. The spinach and artichoke fondue was lukewarm at best, and quite honestly, there was nothing special about it. It easily could have been from the chain restaurant across the street, and would have been better. I asked the server for her suggestion for lunch and she suggested the Caprice panini. In the description they talked about "oven roasted tomatoes" when in all honesty it was a smidgen of pale tomato with no taste, which made the sandwich very bland. Dessert was the best course, but even that was subpar- Banana, peanut butter and chocolate crepe- the crepe was rather rubbery and the bananas were just chunks of cold bananas in the crepe. Who wants that with warm chocolate? My daughter had the children's chicken fingers and fries which were standard fair- nothing special, but she enjoyed. She also got the kid's melting marshmallow crepe which she also enjoyed. If we ever go here again, it would only be for dessert."

"I went on Sunday for a late lunch as I arrived I was greeted as I was seated got our menus and ordered we did not receive any utensil even when we got our food we had to ask for them and then my fiancé dish was made wrong they forgot the chicken with the chicken Alfredo. In my opinion the food was very average for the prices they were at my 4 yo son ordered a chocolate milk and that costed $6.00 same cost as my hot chocolate that tasted good but also tasted like a cup of melted chocolate bar literally. I would recommend this rest. For a group of friends that wants to hangout and want something really sweet I believe if I was there for mostly the chocolate it would've been great but def not a place I'll go back for lunch or dinner more for dessert."

"Thought the food was very expensive but realize you pay for atmosphere and unique chocolate dishes. While our server was very nice and answered our questions, it took a long time for our food to come out and it wasn't that crowded. Probably will not return anytime soon."

"It was ok that we were practically sitting in the kitchen. But the server was not attentive. I had to get water from a passing by server. Then when I paid ny change was short $20. The manager fixed the issue aftrt we waited for 15 minutes and not so much as an I'm sorry for the mistake.
Second time thr service was underwhelming. Sadly the same server each time. Perhaps she needa to be reassigned.

"Our server looked as though she hadn't showered in days and the fire alarm went on/off for almost the entire time we were there."

"I went for lunch with my sister and niece and nephew who are both under 5! An I'm excited to say we had a great time! The food was great! From presentation to taste even the temperature was right on! The hot chocolate menu is out of this world! I would definitely recommend if you are in Philadelphia you stop by."

"Went for lunch with the family. Food was average but got salmon that was still raw. Waitress profusely apologized, brought another salmon properly cooked, and took it off the bill. Great service. Desserts are the best here."

"Not a place to go to eat healthy, but that's not why you came here. We've come here for meals and left completely stuffed. We've come just for dessert after having eaten somewhere else. We can't drive past without going "Oooh, Max Brenner's!"
If you like chocolate, Max Brenner's has so many delicious, fun, creative ways to become a total chocoholic!
Oh yeah, they do serve food, too and it's quite good, but the chocolate is the main attraction.
The service has always been very good, too.

"Maybe my expectations were too high; Max Brenner Philadelphia was OK. We went only for an after dinner chocolate experience, and based on that, it was fine. Maybe we'd go back for a full meal, and if we do, I'd expect it to be a typical chain-style food experience. Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their sweet treats. I got the Tooti-Fruiti Waffle, and it was just OK. The biggest opportunity Max Brenner has is to replace the bland, pre-made, processed and boring waffle with a real, fresh, just-cooked waffle. The waffle that came with my ice cream and chocolate and fruit tasted like it came from a box, was made two weeks ago and stored in the refrigerator. If Max and the team took that little extra effort pour waffle batter onto a waffle iron upon each order, it would take the experience to the next level and justify the $15+/- price for this dish. The aroma of waffles floating through the air mixed with the chocolate would be amazing, and it would cause guests to really spread the word about this place. As it is now, it left me feeling underwhelmed, and wondered how great a place this could be if the staff gave it just that little extra effort to erase the cookie-cutter, chain style feel and make it a more memorable experience."
