The desserts here are very good and worth the trip, but I would not personally go here for the food. It is more of a fun place for a special dessert. Easy to get to and parking nearby.

This was my 2nd time there with family. The food wasn't okay, some dishes were better than others. The mac n cheese, however, was NOT that good as it was the first time around - could be change in chefs. We were a little bit disappointed in the desserts which is really why we went. A couple of us got... More

I was walking in town and saw this location. I am a chocolate lover and had to stop. I only looked around and bought chocolates from the shop. Orgasmic!

When you want a decadent brunch, this is the place to go! We went on a Sunday morning, right after the Broad St run, and sat right down ( with a reservation). The Mexican hot chocolate was spicy and delicious, the cappuccino in the kangaroo mug was chocolatey and delicious! The brunch menu has nothing but yummy options! I just... More

Food is good, service is usually good, too, but it is ALL about the amazing chocolate desserts here! We come every time we're in Philly. Highly recommend making advance reservations in the evening and on weekends.

We were so excited to take 3 kids to this restaurant for some chocolate surprises (chocolate shot, chocolate pizza and more!) But it was dreadful. The server looked thoroughly miserable - never smiled once. She mixed up order and I got a lukewarm hot chocolate (practically cold), my husband got completely the wrong drink, and when I asked her what... More

A unique restaurant with a single theme running through the menu, chocolate. Numerous dishes are infused with a variety of chocolate flavorings. But the best is dessert and make sure you save room. Order your dinner based on what you would like for dessert.

The chocolate martinis are SO GOOD. The chocolate covered strawberries are addicting. You HAVE to save room for dessert, or just hit it for dessert. Restaurant week is an awesome time to go because you get to try a lot of different stuff. The turkey club is awesome, and I've had the Philly cheesesteak that's in a waffle. SOOOOOO GOOOD!

great hazelnut and marshmallow hot chocolates... but small at $6 each. Went back next night for dinner and the quinoa and strawberry salads were very tasty but an extra $4 for chicken that was smaller and harder to find than the tiny cubes in the soup packages. Still, is a cute place and the core chocolates are excellent.

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.
