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!
My husband and I, along with 3 other family members, enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving Day lunch at Chocolat. Four of us ordered the special Thanksgiving menu, all traditional offerings, but with a twist. My husband had beef short ribs with smashed potatoes and sauteed spinach. Everything was delicious from the appetizers to the sweet potato pie dessert. In addition, the service was excellent.
I had a great experience at this establishment with my friends. Food was delicious ‼️
Great food and drinks for brunch. Not really crowded and the staff is friendly. Would have enjoyed it better if there was consistent music.
It wasn’t a busy night so we were seated right away. I think our waitress was new on the job because she didn’t know what came with my entree which I have ordered before. But other than that she was great. The food was delicious as always we had a great time. Will definitely be returning again
I Love this restaurant..Unfortunately sometimes the service could be a little better..L9ve Food always.
I've been here many times. The vibe of the brunch is always a hit but the restaurant should really have other options for those that are vegan or those that do not eat dairy/meat but may eat seafood. We do like to eat things other than salad. the only options are potatoes or a salad so I really didnt enjoy it. These are just somethings to think about for the brunch menu. Especially if there is an unlimited mimosa option, doesnt really go well with a salad thats on the menu
Reservation times aren’t honored, venue is small so when accommodating large parties they struggle to still seat everyone else. Overpriced food & subpar service. Probably wouldn’t go back, it was a nice place but they just didn’t have the staff or floor space to deal with a true Sunday brunch crowd.
Great Experience! The food and service were excellent! We had red velvet pancakes/chicken, salmon, pasta, and braised short ribs. We also ordered the cornbread for an appetizer. We were all very happy. I wish that we had room for dessert.
amazing food, great cocktails. hostess was very accommodating. lively atmosphere
I heard a lot of good things about the restaurant, no good things occurred while I was there! Our servers were a little confused, and gave one of our appetizers to the wrong table and we were still charged. I don’t know I don’t think I would return back for a second time. I encourage you to try it out for yourselves, maybe you’ll have a different experience.
In the past I would have recommended Chocolat to friends and family but after my recent visit I will not be returning and I don’t recommend anyone else return. The food was just ok this time even though my wife was craving the croquettes and grits she left very disappointed.
The gnats in our seating area only added to the dissatisfaction of our overall visit. The cleanliness needs to be improved ASAP.
Awesome experience. The staff was nice. The shrimp and grits and croquette and grits taste great! The red velvet pancakes were nice and sweet. The Belinni and mimosas were awesome. Nice amount of wine and/or champagne in both. I will definitely be back.
Great brunch! Waiter was attentive and pleasant would recommend. Will definitely be back on my next visit
Our server was very pleasant, but didn't check in enough to see that everything was okay.
This place was phenomenal. The food was exceptional. Ordered the honey butter biscuits twice.
The red velvet pancakes alone are indeed worth the trip for brunch!
We booked for Sunday Brunch as we were on holiday. Food was fantastic as were the staff, very friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
I took my friend out for her birthday, neither the ribs nor the steak were seasoned. Additionally my steak was over cooked.
I love this restaurant, we drive in from jersey to eat here..food is fantastic..we spent my bday here Saturday
The waiter was not very approachable, took really long to provide service and the food was not great for the price in comparison to other brunches in Harlem area.
Our server was amazing! The food was also incredible
Made reservation ahead of time. Table was ready upon arrival. Everything was excellent! Service and Food! Will definitely visit again!
