    I love this place. I have been going here for years. I love the hot chocolate and the ambiance, but I keep returning mainly because of Johnny's friendly and professional service. He elevates the dining experience. He is attentive to everyone and his smile is infectious. This cacao bar is a gem. Thank you Johnny for always providing such a wonderful experience.

    Visiting MarieBelle in Soho for a family outing was absolutely a delightful experience, especially with our baby in tow. Johnny the Troubkemaker was exceptionally helpful because he accommodated the stroller while my baby napped. This charming chocolate shop, renowned for its exquisite selection of chocolates and desserts, also stands out for its welcoming atmosphere for families. The highlight of our visit was indulging in what I consider my favorite hot chocolate in the city, a rich and creamy concoction that managed to impress both the adults and the little ones in our group. The staff at MarieBelle went above and beyond to accommodate us, offering a place to keep the stroller out of the way and still in view from my seat and being incredibly patient and attentive towards our baby's needs, making us feel completely at ease(Uncle Johnny). The cozy and elegant décor added to the warmth of our experience, creating a perfect backdrop for a family gathering. It's not always easy to find a spot that caters to both adults and children with such grace, but MarieBelle strikes a beautiful balance between sophistication and kid-friendliness. Apart from the hot chocolate, we also enjoyed a variety of chocolates, each piece like a little work of art, both in appearance and taste. The attention to detail in every aspect of MarieBelle, from the presentation of the food to the interior design, is truly commendable. In conclusion, our visit to MarieBelle in Soho was a memorable one, offering not just a culinary delight with their unparalleled hot chocolate but also a welcoming space for small families. It's a gem in the city that appeals to chocolate lovers of all ages, making it a must-visit destination for anyone looking to treat themselves and their family to an extraordinary chocolate experience.

    I love afternoon tea and have enjoyed it at multiple places around the US. This is one of the most delightful tea experiences I’ve had. The ambience is fantastic and reminds me of something out of Marie Antoinette. The tea was delicious (you’d be surprised how many places don’t know how to prepare tea), the sandwiches were beautiful and tasty and the scones and desserts were the best I’ve had for any afternoon tea. The samplings of hot chocolate were the icing on the cake. My husband and I had gone for my birthday, and I felt so special. Johnny the Troublemaker even brought a treat for my birthday at the end, as well as a small chocolate molten lava cake that was out of this world. Can’t wait to go back in a few weeks.

    Such an amazing experience. This is my 4th time visiting. The food, hot chocolate and ambience are amazing. However, the host/server/manager, Johnny the Troublemaker, always makes the really special He is such an engaging person and a true professional. Mariebelle would not be the same without him!

    Overall, it was a very nice experience for me and my daughter. We appreciated the shot of complimentary Aztec hot chocolate that was served to us. I also asked if we can try the Tahitian Vanilla Bean white hot chocolate and our server was kind enough to oblige us. We ordered the 3 scone platter and the finger sandwich platter. My daughter ordered the 8 oz hot milk chocolate and I ordered the cappuccino. My cappuccino was bland and lacked any espresso flavor. The scones were delicious and they were served warm with clotted cream and two jams. Our favorite finger sandwiches were the smoked salmon and dill cream cheese, endive salad with blue cheese & walnuts and the ham & gruyere. We did not enjoy the beet hummus and butternut squash finger sandwiches because they lacked flavor. I recommend switching these two sandwiches offered on the platter to more interesting and savory ones. Overall, it was a very nice experience and we would definitely return.

    The hot chocolates are delicious as a good point, the pastries were fine but nothing special and unfortunately the service was not great and we had overall a disappointing experience topped off by there being no whipped cream available

    Ambience was good, sandwiches were ok and that’s what’s pulling down the score. The hot chocolate was good. But the service was excellent. It wasn’t the most professional or Michelin 3 star like, but the main server was extremely good and he deserves all the credit.

    The place is splendid The Christmas decorations are old world Vienna.The hot chocolate is delicious , The sandwiches are good but some of them were like a red paste on a slice. Than needs to go. It looks and taste like something made up at the last moment to make the setting look full. The waiter is jovial and nice ,,, but rather incongruent with the place. The sales person in the from store where the chocolates are sold, he is gentlemanly and kind and goes really beyond. And can we please have napkins at the begging at the service?. They bring the little delicious soup in dainty cup , then your drink tea or chocolate but the napkins come at the end with the tea tower. Odd. It is though a splendid experience !!! I've been 3 times already this season and the criticism is meant to be constructive>

    This is a favorite spot in Soho and have been a few times. The tea this time was odd - either the chef was phoning it on or they tried too hard to make it "seasonal"? One of the tea sandwiches was just pumpkin puree on a round of white bread with a pumpkin seed in top - it was not good. Another was tomato puree on a round of white bread with a slice of cucumber on top? Not good. Since when are these "tea sandwiches"?? I love an endive salad, the little sandwich had an odd flavor to it, not good. 2 scones - one was traditional and the other was bran or grain or something that did not translate, it was not good. It wasn't the right texture for a scone. The salmon sandwich had a piece of lemon right on top - about gagged was so tart! Salmon was very fishy - Not good. Asked if I could choose the flavor of the macaron with my tea - told no, it is up to the chef. (???) Why can't I choose a flavor I actually like? I left the majority of the food items there on the tray. Bummer. I normally love a seasonal menu or when a place changes things up - was really disappointed this time. *Especially given it is an expensive tea...

    Great food and service; however, they have customers crammed in the space. Our group was shoulder to shoulder with another table. I’d rather they charger higher prices rather than cram customers together because it ruins the specialness of the experience.
