Calling all chocaholics. This is the place for you. Max Brenner isn’t just chocolate. They have salads, sandwiches and entrees as well. Of course we came for the chocolate! The menu is rather large and can be a bit overwhelming. Our very friendly and knowledgeable...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

Stopped here last night for drinks and dessert. Dessert menu is extensive. We shared the churro waffle taco, which was pretty amazing and good sized. However a group next to us ordered the fondue ($23) and I was surprised how small it looked (in comparison...More

I've seen a few reviews saying that the food here is overpriced. Yes, it is expensive, but in my opinion, it is totally worth it. Can't see myself coming here too often though (not good for my wallet AND my waistline!).

It is a fun place to celebrate all things sweet and chocolate. I really want to like this place, but it was disappointing due to small portions and cost. To pay 25.00 for the fondue is a rip off. You get a small bowl of...More

Most beautiful and tasty chocolate place I have been to. The environment is very inviting and the dishes are very creative bringing out the aromas and tastes of chocolate. I can go there everyday.

This restaurant is definitely know primarily for their chocolate! I truly feel that the drinks are way over priced and not worth what you pay! The dinner menu is ok, but I don't think I will come back for that! You want dessert... this is...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!
