Went for my sister’s birthday. The service staff was nice and attentive. The food was ok but lacked seasoning you’d expect when reviewing the menu- looked like “soul food”. Overall experience was ok but our guest weren’t impressed.
The food and portions at Chocolat was very good. However, we waited almost 5 minutes to be seated and the bartender didn’t even notify the host that customers had arrived. She didn’t even acknowledge us until I approached her and asked that she retrieve someone if we could not select a seat for ourselves. Not cool. Our waiter “Ali” was very nice and knowledgeable. He gave great feedback about the food and was very accommodating. Nice music played while we waited for our food.
Enjoyed my time here. My waiter was awesome ! The music was on point !
Music to loud for table conversation.
I had the southern fried chicken entree and it was delicious. The service was great and I recommend their rum swizzle cocktail.
This was my second time at Chocolat. My first time was a Sunday brunch and that experience was significantly better than last Saturday evening. I was seated at 5:15pm and my food arrived at 7:10pm. I thought 5pm would give me enough time for a 8pm show at the Apollo but we were rushing. I got the fried chicken dish that came with the option of mashed potatoes or mac & cheese. I wanted mac & cheese and received mashed sweet potatoes. I didn’t have time to inform the server. The food tasty but not worth the wait. If I return it would only be for a drink. The bartender was very attentive and prompt. The ambiance is also really nice with great music.
Upon entering the establishment I was acknowledged. The young bartender was nice and attentive.HOWEVER my date and I purchased the unlimited mimosas. I got three good drinks while my bf only had one, until what seems the manger (older lady) took Over the bar area. She made the worse mimosas , served us straight orange juice and made our stomach extremely full and uncomfortable. I brought it to her attention and she came and poured into our cups from the champagne bottle. When it was time for the next one, we had to settle for the same batch of orange juice. The food was good, staff was nice but I will never go back! 40 dollars down the drain.. for unlimited orange juice.
A little pricey but the food was good and so was my Belini
I’ll probably never go out to eat on Valentines Day again!!
Nice place and good food Nd great drinks Mac and cheese was good
Pricey for sure! But the overall service was very good!
The service was great, the waiter was vey attentive
Great restaurant. My husband and I certainly will return.
We went to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We enjoyed the food and my wife enjoyed her birthday.
Portions very small, over priced, some of the food cold, hostess rude and curt, small tables. Drinks decent more like juice. Server not very knowlegable regarding menu, service slow. Had to look for server to get additional items. Will most likely never go back or recommend.
Loved it. This is my 3rd time going and the food was great!
I sat at the Bar and it was a nice service throughout the place!
The portions are great, the food is delicious and our server was pleasant and attentive. Will go back.
Food is overpriced. I had to get spinach instead of arugula in my beet salad. Not that tasty and needed more dressing. Spinach also had to replace the vegetable with the crab cakes.
Nice restaurant, and wonderful customer service!!!
Had an excellent night out with the ladies & the food was great .
Everything was great but the service was lacking. We never received our appetizer and constantly looking for our waiter to refill our drinks! The food was great though
The food is pricey given the quality. It was a better value before. Now not sure it’s worth it. It’s sad because staff are lovely and so is the atmosphere.
Cannot even submit a thorough review for this restaurant. My party and I were never seated even though we made a reservation. The hostess was reluctant to communicate and when my friend asked for a glass of water, which he was denied at the bar due to lack of water cups, the hostess quickly got an attitude before he got his question out and said “Please do not ask me if your table is ready.” Poor assumption made on her part and I am not eager to return.
The service was extremely slow. Could never find the waiter. The food took a long time to arrive. Order the salmon and salad. Salmon had no seasoning. My best friend ordered the lamb chops and mashed potatoes. Neither was tasty. Ordered the watermelon martini. It tasted artificial like cheap mixers. My best friend ordered a drink with champagne. The drink was warm. Very disappointed. Will never dine here again.
Just an opinion, playing afrobeat music would be nice, overall had a wonderful time
This is my 3rd time and I wasn’t pleased with the food at all. My 2 trips prior the food was great, idk what happened this time.
The food was great, service great, the vibes were great. Worth the visit. Will be back next week for brunch again!
Awesome food + great Pandora audio + incredible service = A trifecta.
My partner and I stayed in Harlem — a separate wonderful discovery — and we passed Chocolat on foot as we were exploring the environs. We had lunch Friday and were so impressed by the experience that we invited a friend for brunch on Sunday.
We were in town with teenagers from Michigan. They wanted to take the A train to Harlem, so this was an ideal brunch location. The food was exceptional and the service excellent.
We had a 3 pm reservation so only a few tables were occupied. It took several minutes for our server to approach the table. He got my friend’s order wrong even though she was clear in ordering. He was fraternizing with a female employee behind the bar for several minutes as I tried to get his attention. Would re-visit for the food but the server’s performance needs to improve.
Cake fee of $20 was not explained correctly but our server Trey was attentive and more than made up for it.
Everything was great but when my food was packed to go my coleslaw wasnt in there. All items should be in your to go container no matter how small. I paid for it.
Great service, good food, nice restaurant to grab brunch lunch and dinner.
The red velvet pancakes and chicken is delicious! Only reason I’d give 4/5 stars is due to their unclear reservation policy. When I arrived to my reservation I was told that reservations don’t guarantee you a seat. Which is the complete opposite meaning of a reservation. Luckily I wasn’t with a huge party and was able to be seated at the bar.
The service was good. Food was amazing!
Food was great and the drinks were amazing, love the place
Great place to have brunch!!! Great food, great drinks, and amazing atmosphere! Music was great, just had a really time time overall
An amazing restaurant. I went here for my birthday, had amazing food and an amazing vibe. The music was great and we all had a great time!
