Good for Groups
This restaurant has a vast food
and drink menu which I think is part of the problem. There are so many choices that nothing is really done well. (Except the chocolate). The drinks were extremely overpriced and not very good. I got the chicken and it was just so so. My husband ordered the steak and he said that the meat cut and quality were not very good. There was a couple sitting across from us that ordered steak and had to send it back three times and it still wasn't cooked correctly. I would recommend getting your steak at least medium well. Overall, for the price,I expected a higher quality dining experience. I highly recommend doing your primary dining and drinking elsewhere and sticking to this place for dessert only."

I felt like the hostess was a good
friend of mine by the way she welcomed me and took the time to chat and answer my questions. During our dining experience we were checked on by the chef, manager/owner, and the hostess. The buffalo chicken soup topped with blue cheese crumbles was excellent! My friend's wrap was very eye appealing! We were treated to a sample of the chocolate martini which is a chocolate lover's dream! This is a new dining experience worth trying!"

Our waiter Jeff was very attentive
and apologetic. The kitchen however, would get a 1 as far as I am concerned. They burned the first appetizer, then comped it. They brought my salad with my dinner instead of before. My entree was tepid at best and missing a side dish that was to be included.They ended up comping my entree. The desserts were they best part. Both were absolutely wonderful. I would probably go back and give a second chance as the taste of all the food was really good. Did not try a Chocolate Martini because i did not want something sweet before dinner but will definitely try next time."

My girlfriend and I went here on
Saturday night. She ordered a martini and I had a spiked hot chocolate; neither were the caliber we'd expect from a a restaurant that claims to specialize in martinis and chocolate both lacking any flavor other than the alcohol. We ordered the spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer (our favorite) and were fairly disappointed with that as well, as it too lacked much of a particular taste. For our entrees I had a flatbread and she had the chocolate pasta. Mine was edible but very generic; the prosciutto wasn't even authentic. My girlfriend wasn't even able to eat her (very small) entree. We originally planned for dessert but went elsewhere as everything else was unoriginal and uninspired. We won't be back"

We all enjoyed it. The hot spinich
was one of the best I had ever eaten. The hot milk shake Godiva was wonderful!"

The hostess was very sweet, which
started this off great. I was early so I sat at the bar and got a White Chocolate Raspberry Martini and Ryan was EXCELLENT and very helpful and so personable. When the rest of my girl arrived we had Lynn as a waitress. SHE WAS FANTASTIC!"

Dinner portions were small, food
was OK, but nothing special, I would not come back for the steak I had. In the backroom there was a birthday party for little girls, maybe they should put a door up, because it was a little noisy for date night."
Dined on 11/16/2013
Our martinis were good, however,
one of our party members ordered a hot chocolate that was just lukewarm. My dinner salad that had accompanying warm dressing, was lumpy and not very flavorful. We did love the creamy spinach-artichoke soup and it probably was the hit of the night. The room was dimly lit and fairly loud, and also since our table was next to the window, we were cold. We may try it again when the weather warms up and we can sit outside."

My wife and I visited The
Chocolate Bar for a NYE dinner. Drinks and ordering went fine, but then our dinner made it to the table before our soup and salad we also ordered. They offered to take the dinners back to the kitchen, but not being a fan of sending food back we declined. Even with the miss-timed arrival of the food, my wife's crab cakes were lukewarm at best. Our server said he would send over the manager, but that never happened. Not being in the mood to complain (being NYE), we went on with our meal. My wife ordered decaf coffee for desert, which our server said may need to be brewed, but he never followed up on it again and it never came (at least we weren't charged). The Oreo cheesecake was the highlight of the meal."

Went for NYE. Had live music. Was
good musician! Excellent food, drinks and dessert. But was INCREDIBLY SLOW at serving us and getting our food and drinks to us. If you don't mind slow service I would definitely recommend for the food! We all loved ours: Fetticine with Chicken, Filet Mignon, and Cuban sandwich. For dessert the fondue was huge and good! The cheesecake was generic. Overall a good meal and will return!!"

My boyfriend and I decided to come
here for dinner on NYE and were sadly letdown. When we got to the restaurant it was not busy yet our server was MIA majority of the time. We waited entirely too long for a whiskey sour to be delivered and even longer to get a steak knife for his filet (which he ended up cutting with a butter knife.....). Due to the lack of service I didn't even bother ordering dessert considering how long the rest of the meal took to happen, which is sad because I picked the place simply because it seemed as though the desserts, and service, would be up to par. If I ever come back I hope the experience will be better....."

Glad that east Louisville has a
restaurant that does not mimic many others.....the many chocolate options are novel! I will return to try some of these in the future"

We planned for months to come to
the Chocolate Bar for our Girls Night Out. Got our reservations, secured a designated driver, and got all dolled up for a couple hours of husband and kid-free relaxation. Then it took over 30 minutes to get our first martinis, the steaks were incorrectly cooked, and our waiter readily blamed everyone for our poor service but himself. The place was empty, it was a Monday night, and our server made no mention of the free manicures that were offered. All in all it was a disappointing experience that I'm not willing to spend my hard earned money to give them a second chance. Don't waste your time, it would be quicker, and cheaper, to drive to your local liquor store and buy your own martini supplies!"

The best thing about the Chocolate
Bar was not the Chocolate. The Club sandwich (Panini too $$) was tasty. The chocolate/strawberry crepes was served COLD! Cold (thick) crepe, cold berries, and cold chocolate! Too late now...as the desserts we already ordered to take home (Belgian Mousse Cake and a Raspberry Ruffle Truffle) also came from the frig. Neither was good! We were told by our nice server, that the only desserts made in-house are the Crème Brule and the Mud Pie/Cakes. Very disappointing and over priced! Too bad...could have been a good thing. Guess they expect you to have another martini and not notice..."

We were having a "girls day" and
wanted someplace different, local(neighborhood) and interesting. The Chocolate Bar filled the need nicely. We had never been before, the waitress answered most questions instantly. We were there around 1pm and chose bar seating; once the main dining room emptied however, the staff blasted music throughout the building. Our waitress accomadated our request to turn it off, but the music choice seemed out of place for the ambience and the volume was excessive! I understand the staff was in mid afternoon prep but there were customers in the building and it was a jarring end to an otherwise pleasant lunch. We will go back to experience some of the Happy Hour features...Massage Wednesday etc."

Delicious and fresh Mediterranean
Salad with grilled shrimp, good choice of dressings. Much harder to pick a dessert to share from the extensive menu of chocolate treats, but settled on the Snickerbocker and was not disappointed."

Chocolate sauce on sweet potatoe
fries was a great! Never would have thought it, but all 4 of us liked it. The tilapia was a generous portion and the chocolate pasta bar looked a like a lunch portion. Must admit following it all up with dessert made the small portion just right in the balance. Bananas foster crepes were outstanding! Flourless chocolate cake was very rich so I took 1/2 home and enjoyed it the next day. Dinner, service, atmosphere, and dessert all excellent. Quite a treat!"

The service was awful. Our drinks
were constantly empty and 2 of the entrees were delivered to the table and after 5 more minutes the other two arrived. It took forever to get our food and the restaurant was not even that busy. I was quite disappointed that time. I had been there 3 days earlier and was quite impressed!"
Dined on 9/27/2013
We had a group of us dining for
lunch, and the only things worth ordering again were the Chocolate Bar Baguette and the desserts. All members ordered various salads and sandwiches, and they were mediocre at best. The ciabatta bread that came with some sandwiches was heavy and hard as a rock - too hard to bite, too hard to tear, and too hard to cut with a butter knife. Since the server dropped the food and didn't come back for over 20 minutes, those sandwiches had to be taken apart and eaten sans bread. Even if the food had been better, the prices were entirely too high. If their primary focuses are the "chocolate" and the "bar", the food should be priced appropriately to balance out when a consumer indulges in the namesake items."

Food & service were good. Had to
wait several minutes for hostess. Also I didn't get my points on Open Table again???"
Dined on 9/22/2013
We were hesitant after reading the
reviews of making reservations here but we were pleasantly surprised. As many readers noted they seemed under staffed for a Saturday night, but the service was good. The menu had many interesting options, however what we thought was most interesting was we asked a staff member what they would recommend. The answer they gave was more options of what they wouldn't order than what they would. My husband finally decided on the steak gorgonzola and I had the tilapia, both were good nothing great but good. The best part of the evening was the dessert and martini selection. We have always complained Louisville needed a good place for adult beverages and dessert and we found that in the Chocolate Bar."
Dined on 9/22/2013
Everything was excellent. Great
Food, Great Service. Kudos to your entire staff. We all had something a little different from Seafood, Steak, and Chicken. All were perfectly prepared. The desserts were as delicious as they looked. From Bananas Fosters Crepes to Heath Chocolate Torte, to the Ice Cream Sundae. We will be back :)"

I had heard good things about the
place. When we arrived, although we had a reservation, there was no table so we had a wait. When the food arrived 5 out of our 6 received their orders. One order did not come. after a length of time it did appear. Since the food is not exceptional we won't be back."

Desserts were excellent the main
course was "okay" nothing special. The servers were nice but very slow."

Your restaurant is beautiful,
clean and extremely noisy. Our lunch was delicious and our server was perfect but we couldn't have a conversation because it was so loud. The noise coming from the kitchen didn't help. If I return, I would sit on the other side of the restaurant. My Dad has hearing aides and it was very uncomfortable for him."
Dined on 8/30/2013
This has the potential to be a
great restaurant. The menu is really good. I love the theme of chocolate. The owner took great care in fun details like the Vaultini (a room from a previous bank vault with a penny lined floor.) I had crab cakes which were delicious. Desert choices are amazing."

This was my second time at this
restaurant. The first time was for a girl's night out and we had great service and food. I liked it so much, I wanted to bring my family back. The second experience was with my parents and 2 year old daughter. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. The food took a long time, the server, though friendly, seemed to have too many tables to be very attentive, the resturant was very loud and the food was not very flavorful. Even the chocolate dessert was boring. The server missed out on alcohol sales because he never returned to the table to ask if I wanted another drink. Overall, I would not recommend going to this restaurant for anything other than happy hour drinks and apps."

Delicious drink menu and desserts.
The restaurant was very loud so I would not recommend for a quiet evening out."

Great concept, but execution needs
tweaking. Decor was contemporary and crisp; wait staff looked sloppy in t-shirts.Menu was extensive, food was nothing special. I had the Mexican Pork Loin with roasted potatoes. The presentation was top-notch, but the potatoes were still hard and the pork loin was barely warm. None of us raved about our food. There were four in our party. They brought two of our entrees about five minutes before the next two. It was really cold in the restaurant, and our waiter was kind enough to bring us coffee on the house while we waited for our food. He was attentive and did a good job. The desserts are delicious! It was a strange experience, because it was good, but lacked the little touches that make a place great."
Dined on 8/5/2013
Hadn't been able to get a
reservation, but kept trying. SO GLAD I DID! The food can best be described as "classics with unexpected twists." We started with something that could have been rather boring - sweet potato fries. The rosemary butter dipping sauce was rather yawn but the other two - wow. Maple Mayo and a spicy chocolate sauce. I wanted to lick the sauce containers! We also shared the chicken flatbread pizza. Again, something that could have been boring was so good! Of course, we ordered a dessert to share. We got the peanut butter mud. It had a crunchy peanut topping that we were fighting over! Of course, our favorites were the drinks. We only tried 4 total - all "nice ice" wine mixtures. All delish!"
Dined on 7/30/2013
We were there 35 minutes before
happy hour ended. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks. The waitress didn't return until 2 minutes after happy hour was over and charged full price for the second round. When the food arrived after 45 minutes one meal was cold and had to be sent back. Food and drink prices were excessive. Will not return."
Dined on 7/27/2013
Yeah...this place has a friggin'
chocolate SANDWICH! It's called the Chocolate Baguette, and YOU MUST GET IT. The menu is fabulous, desserts are ridiculous...perfect place for a girls night out! Mondays are Martinis and Manicures....Wednesdays are Martinis and Massages! Buy a martini and get a free manicure Monday or massage on Wednesday in the "Vaultini" room. Perfection. I'm moving in."
Dined on 7/25/2013
overall experience was good with
the exception of we sat outdoors and they allowed smoking on the patio and the person smoking was a chain smoker. I guess the Waitress did not have the courage to address the smoking individual. Had the pecan encursted chicken and it was bland but the meat was moist and tender. Ice cream desserts were over priced for the quality."
Dined on 7/14/2013
This makes the 4th time I've been
to this restaurant and the worst experience so far. The service was awful. The server came back often enough, but it took 45 min to an hour to get my 2nd martini. Martini's are this place's specialty. Granted the place was packed and they've only been open a couple of months so maybe they haven't quite learned how to handle a full house. The food was pretty good but my daughter didn't like her turkey club. My other daughter (after waiting a 1/2 hour for their shakes), was served the wrong one. So things def could have been better. Next time we go there, I hope for a much better experience. Going to give them the benefit of the doubt."
