It's nice to see that not everything they have is chocolate, the waffle fries are amazing! Loved my Mocha Madness and the Chocolate Pasta! However, service was disappointing. We waited an extra half hour for a 9 PM reservation, and then some food was delivered...More

This restaurant was not only fun for the kids, but helpful during a meltdown, and accommodating to a small baby. The waiters made great recommendations and were highly attentive. Order a light dinner and save room for dessert!

So they are known for their desserts - and they were amazing. We had lunch there and nothing was crazy good except for their spinach and artichoke dip. Their milkshakes and chocolate fondues were amazing. And they had a mango beer which was to die...More

We stumbled upon this chocolate heaven while walking down Boylston Street and the intoxicating sweet smell of chocolate drew us in. This place makes just about everything with chocolate- including their cocoa dusted french fries! I went with the Chocolate Hazelnut Milkshake and it was...More

When you step in to Max Brenner, located at Boylston street in Boston, you do not know if the all too-sweet smell of chocolate is pleasant or not. You soon get used with the smell and can start to check the menu and then leave...More

The space looks great and you get a real need for chocolate. The description in the menu makes you crave chocolate even more. What you get is a bit of vanilla ice cream with some melted chocolate for 13 dollars. Disappointing and definitely not value...More

Good place to grab a hot chocolates. Pricey, but a fun vibe. For an amazing meal, try Atlantic Fish, two doors down.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
– as well as every other kind of store imaginable –
all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice

Max Brenner, Chocolate by the Bald Man, the first restaurant entirely devoted to chocolate, provides a "chocolate mood:" a person being surrounded by huge bricks, candles, pralines, colorful toy tins and crates filled with cocoa beans. Each person"s chocolate experience is exclusive to the individual as it brings out different emotions in each and every person. This can be experienced at our retail shop and dining room. In addition to our unique chocolate, we also offer delicious savory foods. Whether it is our famous Brenner Burger or Mac & Cheese, there will be something for everyone in the group!
