    Spent $20 on a salmon salad which was more like a salmon soup with how much dressing was on it. All the lettuce and other ingredients were completely soggy. The chicken on the chicken nachos was unseasoned and inedible, tasted canned. We were unable to finish our meal. This was an over-priced Applebees.

    The entrees were not as good as we expected (my husband took one bite of his steak and did not eat another bite) but the speciality drinks were delicious and the Ferris wheel appetizer was also very good! It was a cute little place but think we would return just for drinks and appetizers! Our server was amazing though!

    This was our first time eating here. We started out with the southwest chicken nachos. When they arrived they looked like something was missing. We looked at the menu and discovered the corn, black beans and salsa was missing. It took about 10 minutes for our server to return to check on us. Within minutes of telling him the issue he was back with a new and correct order of the nachos. They were delicious! We ordered the salmon and a chicken sandwich. Both very good. Our server was very good and nice. It’s definitely a place for tourists but as a local I wanted to try it out.

    Wildly average dinner food. Glorified Applebees. Desserts are the only cool thing and you can get them outside of the restaurant. Not worth the price or the wait. Place is booked up like its a 5 star steakhouse. Not even close

    It was my wife and I first visit to the restaurant and we were not let down. We asked for a table by a window and got one with a view of Hershey park. We ordered the Buffalo chicken appetizer which was delicious and enough for 4 people. My wife also jade the chicken and waffles which was equally outstanding. I had the pulled pork which was good as well. There specialty cocktails while expensive are not to be missed. Our server was attentive and quick to take care of all our needs. Looking forward to another outstanding meal at the Choclatier.

    I was surprised and a bit upset that I wasn't permitted to sit at or stand about the bar while I waited for my name to be called for dinner seating. Was informed that all the seats around the bar ... both inside as well as the outside rooftop lounge we ere reserved seats. We were relegated to the outside lounge area to wait and enjoy a cocktail having only a few very low, uncomfortable Adirondack chairs and 2 High top table and chair to choose from while waiting for our table. What's even more ridiculous was having to see the poor lounge bartender walk INSIDE to the main bar to get us a few draft beers! The food was good...not great. We had pretzel appetizer for about ten dollars...we were not overly impressed. We both had the filet of steak which was prepared well but I didn't find the chocolate additives to the steak or accompanying steak sauce all that inspiring. The Jolly Roger watermelon cocktails were very good. Table service from Alyssa was worth mentioning...she was great and very attentive. We had 2 beers 2 cocktails 1 appy 2 entrees and shared a dessert (rainbow cake) for about $200.00 I can say I did it but doubt will go back...far too many other excellent restaurants in the immediate area far less expensive with better food (and policies regarding waiting g for your table at the bar).

    Seemed very disorganized - maitre’d area gave us no clue how they would acknowledge us when table was ready. Happened to look at my phone. VERY noisy. Literally sat by the kitchen so very hectic. Michael, our waiter, was laid back but very kind and informative Dinner looked nice, but mediocre. Dessert was fun and good.

    A friend and I were just there yesterday before the Thomas Rhett concert. We made reservations and only had to wait maybe five minutes. Our server was Octavio and he was excellent. Very personable. Not at all pushy when we were undecided and needed more time. Despite it being busy we didn’t feel at all rushed either which was very nice. The food was very good, we left very full. And the drinks were amazing! The jolly rancher watermelon cocktail was so good and refreshing on a hot day!

    Great service, very friendly and efficient. Good suggestions, did not rush us. Food was delicious. Drinks were original and tasty. My pulled pork was incredible and my wifes burger was huge, juicy and flavorful. Dessert ( choc fondue) was amazing, took leftovers home. Great experience. Would love to go again and take the kids.

    I thought it was overrated. The food was not anything special, and it was overpriced. We waited an extremely long time for our food to be served, thereby wasting our time we could have been riding rides at the park.

    Service was slow like the server forgot about us and we had to ask how long our food will take. She also forgot to bring our soda. Because it took so long for the food we didn’t bother ordering desserts.

    We splurged on the Ferris wheel appetizer and was sorely disappointed. Everything was cold (not even warm) and was nothing special for the $30something dollars they charge for it. The entrees were ok but seemed like “park food quality” still. They dress it up and charge nice restaurant fees but you can get cheaper and similar quality food in the park unfortunately.

    We absolutely LOVED our dinner at The Chocolatier! We made a reservation about a week to a week and a half in advance and I'm glad we did, it was very busy! We had a great waiter, the food was delicious, we particularly enjoyed the unique meals with chocolate infused. This made our trip to Hershey Park extra special! We would definitely recommend trying this place out and we know we will come again the next time we come to Hershey!
