"I ordered the steak special and was very disappointed in the steak. Almost 1/2 was inedible. There was too much fat and a lot of gristle. The flavor was excellent and the sides that were included were delicious. But, the steak was a big disappointment. When I told the waiter, he very kindly offered me a free dessert. He later told me that my dinner would be discounted. The Manager also came by to apologize. I was very appreciative of the way it was handled and would definitely go there again."

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.

"The food at Max Brenner's is excellent, but the added touch of chocolate is outstanding. Some of the best chocolate I've ever tasted."

Casa Nonna's rustic Italian menu is a culmination of traditional Roman and Tuscan fare, with a focus on the freshest local and seasonal ingredients. Casa Nonna is warm and welcoming, authentic and thoroughly satisfying, with bold, pure flavors that are the hallmark of true Italian cuisine.

"This was my first time at Casa Nonna and, hopefully, it won't be my last. The food was absolutely delicious and the ambience outstanding. I will certainly go back on my next visit to NY."

"Our dining experience was excellent except for the very noisy party of 6 women who seemed to have no consideration for anyone dining. They were very loud. That, however, didn't interfere with the excellent food."

"While Saranello's food is very good, the noise level is much too energetic. It's impossible to hold a conversation without shouting. Also, if you have to use the washroom, it's a very long hike to the bathroom. Don't think we'll be going back."
