Food was less than mediocre. Extremely overpriced. Service was drastically slow. I will never eat at this restaurant again. Just plain bad.

Best hit chocolate ever - hug mug extra thick any flavor will set you right. Make sure you ask for extra hot - great place for dessert with family friends or coworkers but you have to be a chocolate lover.

I will say this, the food that they actually brought us, and cooked, was fine. The signature mac and cheese was great. However, we ordered an appetizer that never came and when we cancelled it when the entrees arrived, the waiter looked surprised and asked...More

Chocolate martinis and white russians.... Friday night, so the restaurant was packed. Service wasn't the greatest even thought we were sitting at the bar.

Went for something to eat after the Lady Gaga concert at Fenway Park. Loved that it's open late. Had chocolate martinis, chocolate crepe and some artichoke dip. Food was great. Atmosphere was nice.

My husband and I really enjoyed our dinner here! Nice atmosphere and the food was delicious. We started with the BBQ Hawaiian pizza that was very good. I do suggest asking for extra bbq sauce to drizzle on top. I had the oozing mac n...More

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!
