    it was fine for what it was. overall, not a great experience. we wouldn't come here again while visiting hershey. food is okay, nothing special. very over advertised. we arrived earlier then expected for our reservation. we had 2 small children so we were trying to get seated earlier. we were told by the hostess that we would be seated 15-20 minutes. 45 minutes later the host came over to ask us what our name was and that something went wrong with check in and walked away. no apologies or offer to seat us at that time. the waiter and food was fine. however, we waited about 20 minutes for our drinks from the bar. finished our appetizers before the drinks were served to us.

    Got there around 4:30pm. Was told that we would have to wait 10 minutes. Got seated 30 minutes later. And we only got seated right after I asked why we have been waiting so long. Don't know how long it would have been if I didn't ask. Our server was great. The place just needs better hosts.

    Food portions are small and expensive. Food is not any better than eating at a diner. It was disappointing as it was a special treat for my kids for the holiday. Won't eat there again. Will go somewhere off Hershey property where you can actually get what you pay for.

    Party of 5 for 530pm on a Saturday. Food took a long time to come and when it did some of it was dried out or cold. When asked to have fresh side delivered was told it would be a 5 minute wait. So we are suppose to let the main course get cold too? Didnt offer to make a new meal or anything to compensate the wait

    Food was delicious and our server, Octavio, was very attentive! We celebrated our son’s 8th birthday and he got a kid’s sundae for a special treat! Definitely going back! Reserving on Open Table was easy and we got lucky with our reservation by checking frequently for an opening! Loved it! The only hard part was finding the restaurant bec Google Maps sent us through the employee gate where we were redirected and then got lost again! We will be back nonetheless tho!

    The burger and and chicken Alfredo we ordered seemed as if it was sitting out for a little while before we received it, because it was Luke warm. The French fries and chicken was good however the pasta did not have enough Alfredo sauce on it. Overall not terrible, but not worth the money spent on the food.

    The restaurant is nice inside and the theming is good. The server was helpful and attentive. The actual food was not great. Chicken was charred and overcooked. It was very hard to chew. The shrimp tacos were not edible. The shrimp was gummy and kind of slimy. The taste was terrible. The prices were way too high for the food to be as bad as it was. We should have just eaten at Chik fil an inside the park and saved time and money.

    Yummy salmon and potatoes. A little pricey for salmon but it is in the park. Also, wonderful Carmel Choc martini. Made a reservation it was about 20 mins after when we were seated. Not too bad. Asked for a window view and they accommodated for our 25 anniversary. Overall I would dine there again especially before eating fast food park stuff. We did have a wonderful pretzel in the park!

    Breakfast with Santa was very disappointing!! It was pricey and our reservations were fit 10:00 am and as soon as we got there we were told Santa was leaving for the day at 10:30 to feed the reindeers and was not returning! There was nothing special for the kids the food was a buffet not worth the price they charge and nothing extra for the kids no crafts nothing! Very disappointing spent a lot of money not worth it will never ever do again!

    Pleasantly surprised- considered cancelling reservation due to some poor reviews the weekend we were at Hershey. However, my kids really wanted to try the milkshakes so I decided to take a chance. Milkshakes were decadent and the food was served hot and in a timely fashion. The quality of the food was average, no complaints. Server was personable which was a plus. Would I frequent the restaurant- no, but for a unique and fun experience for my kids, I would definitely come back. Give it a try but make reservations. Tip- they have a few tables that are modeled after the tilt a whirl ride- ask for one. My kids liked it and it makes for a cute photo op.

    The Chocolatier Restaurant + BarResponded on December 1, 2022Hello Melanie, we are so thrilled to hear you and your kids had a fun experience and enjoyed our tilt a whirl seating! We always try to make sure each of our guests have a pleasant time dining with us. Thank you for joining us, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

    Absolutely loved The Chocolatier. The waitress was amazing. I have a severe Gluten Allergy and she made sure the kitchen handled the food properly. The best part of our order, which was very large, was the Ribs and the Wings. Hands down the best that were tasted. Highly recommend and will definitely be dining again!

    The Chocolatier Restaurant + BarResponded on December 1, 2022Hi Ashley, thank you so much for the review! We are delighted to hear your food being tasty, the ribs and wings are a big hit here, considering it has a hint of chocolate! We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Nice place for real food at Hershey park. Fun drinks for kids and adults. A bit pricey. But it is at the park so you have to figure in higher costs.

    The Breakfast with Santa was outstanding! My daughter and I loved the event and she truly enjoyed visiting with Santa and his elf! The food was abundant and delicious. We love eating at the Chocolatier! My only negative comment would be that the kids meal cost was a little much considering how much kids eat and how they were more excited to see Santa than finish their food. I would say kids should cost half of what adults pay for their portion. Happy Holidays!
