  • Worth the price?
    Foodlover
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    The ambiance and food were outstanding, but was $30 really worth the small plate of food to dip in the fondue? I went with three others so we had to get the fondue for four people, but we all seemed to agree that the size seemed quite similar to the two people sized fondue. We all jokingly estimated the price of all the things we got, so less than $2 for the one sliced up banana and sliced strawberries, and at most $5 for the pound cake and brownie slices. So what does the rest of the $20 go? This is a once a year type of restaurant, all the prices on the menu are not very economic.

    My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 7 year anniversary in Reno and found this place. I was so happy with the service, very friendly and helpful. The good was amazing, got more then I expected! The ambiance was wonderful, very classy and romantic. And dessert was just amazing. I will be sure to come back when I'm in Reno again!

    I ordered the Mac and cheese from the small plate section. It was delicious but definitely not a small plate. My boyfriend ordered a salad which he enjoyed very much. We then had chocolate fondue. The one down side to that dessert was that we couldn't pick what we wanted to dip in the fondue and the brownies were hard. Overall a good experience.

    Had some martinis to start which were tasty, not very strong though. The food was good and we got the chocolate fondu for dessert which was the best part! Went earlier in the evening so it was not very busy. Would def recommend and will love to go again :)

    We sat against the left wall and felt a little cold every time the door opened, but I had a coat. Loved our dinner and server was super sweet! We were tempted to go back the next night to get the sweet potato fries and take them back to our hotel! The beef sliders were delicious.

    Party of 5, ages ranged from 7 to 67. Everyone was able to get food they devoured AND chocolate fondue dessert and a great atmosphere! Bret the bartender is a genius at mixing drinks, our server Ivan was really attentive and not overbearing, and the music was just under the decibel where you can't hear yourself think, so it keeps you awake and pumped and the conversations flowing.

  • Chilly air but good food

    We went to the Chocolate Bar for my daughters 21st birthday. We ordered chocolate cherry drinks but got something like amaretto. The tuna two ways had good flavor but lacked in variety with it, just came with chips. After dinner we ordered chocolate fondue and it was very good but again the way it was listed in the menu is not what came to the table. The seating was comfortable but couldn't remove our jackets because it felt like the air conditioner was on and it made it uncomfortably chilly. It was an early spring evening so it was cold outside and almost as cold in there. The food and drink prices were reasonable. There just wasn't anything cozy or fun about the place.

    I wanted to try something new and different and was pleasantly surprised how great the food, service ambience and prices were at the Chocolate Bar. There were 7 of us who were all impressed. I will surely visit again soon.

    They kept changing the volume on the music, it got pretty loud to try and have a conversation. That was my only criticism. The drinks and food were terrific! Great service and recommendations.
