    Great place to enjoy a delicious meal at Hershey’s Chocolate World! The food was excellent. The service was wonderful. The ambiance was perfect for celebrating my friend’s birthday. And everything with plenty of chocolate :) what’s not to like???

    Pizza was under cooked, chicken was dry, man and cheese was watery. Chicken fingers and shakes only good part but not worth the $200.

    It was our first time at The Chocolatier and I was very good. Sat right next to the kitchen so it was a little noisy. The food was delicious. Loved the assortment of savory foods that offered a nod to Hershey’s chocolate family. The service could have been better but was not disappointing. Dessert was my favorite!

    We got the Ferris wheel appetizer and I think it should have came with a cheese sauce since the pretzel bites separately do. That is my only complaint.

    Honestly, I wanted to love it. As fun as it was to surprise the kids, the food was cold, the wings were soggy and cold, and the portions were ridiculously small for the insane price of frozen, deep fried food. We had like 11 tortilla chips in our big bowl to eat with the cold corn dip (which was supposed to be hot)… even the pretzel nuggets were cold. Our waitress was nice, but she hardly came to check on us and wasn’t super attentive at all. This is a place is for crazy $20 milkshake for your kid and a fun picture, but definitely not for good food-especially for the outrageous price and quality and quantity. Sadly, I don’t think we’ll be back. It’s definitely a tourist trap and as a PA resident, I should have known better.

    Service was slow. Food was over priced for what it was and didn’t even taste good. Fry's tasted old, they forgot my mushrooms on my burger. When I told them they forgot to bring them, they still forgot till it was time to go. I didn’t eat my burger because I was waiting for mushrooms. Ate it the next day, I would prefer any fast food burger to the $18 burger I got.

    We’ve been to the chocolatier twice before, I saw the Valentine’s Day specials online at the beginning of February and immediately made reservations. Unfortunately we were unable to get out there until Sun 18th. Our server was great. Unfortunately you were out of the specials I thought about for weeks, and we drove an hour just to eat here. We ended up getting a quesadilla which was not for my tasting (honestly Rutters gas station made a better quesadilla), and my husband only took a few bites out of his food. Very disappointed for a special occasion - we ended up stopped at sheetz on the way home for food. Two entrees and one drink was 56.00! Like I said we’ve been here before and have paid upwards of 100$ but the taste and being out of items didn’t make our Valentine’s Day dinner.

    We felt that this restaurant is a bit overrated. We weren’t aware that there wasn’t a parking lot specifically for the restaurant, so that alone was a major inconvenience. We had a reservation and were taken to our seat fairly quickly;however, it was well over 10 minutes before we were greeted. My hershey martini was very strong, a bit too strong and not enjoyable. Our food took quite a while and my boyfriend’s loaded Mac and cheese was piping hot, meanwhile my braised short rib was extremely cold in the middle, like it was nuked a bit, fresh out of the refrigerator. I was provided a new meal, which was warm all the way through, but we were very surprised there were no adjustments to the check for this issue being that my boyfriend had finished his meal and I was still waiting for mine. There were children screaming in the store below and children next to us hanging along the balcony moving back and forth from our table back to theirs. For a weekend away, this was very undesirable and we rather support local businesses since we didn’t feel like valued customers. I did note we were celebrating a birthday on the reservation, trying to be coy and not blow the surprise for my boyfriend, which was never addressed by any wait staff. After the wait for my dinner, it wasn’t worth addressing the issue to the server. She was very kind, it was just frustrating to see her greet other tables quickly knowing that we waiting quite a while and had some hiccups along the way.

    Sadly the food did not meet our expectations. Portions were small for the price. The rice and bean dish with coconut had a decent flavor but was extremely dry. The chicken sandwich was chewy meat with odd breading. The milkshakes were great!

    Food was delicious but service was slow. We got there at 4:10 and it wasn’t packed. Our waiter was very friendly and took our order right away. We ordered an appetizer and it took 30 minutes to come out and our meal took over an hour to come out. Food was amazing and everyone was super friendly but service was just slower than we would have preferred.

    Wildly overpriced for what is basically amusement park food. Frozen apps, tiny burgers, limp fries, and $10 beers. The space is beautiful but service was slow to take and deliver orders or even just check-in and refill drinks. Default tip suggestion is 22%, which is bold considering the middling lunch experience we'd had.

    It’s very clear this restaurant is aiming for upscale fine dining, which is fine. The food unfortunately does not reflect that for the money. I ordered the loaded mac and cheese dinner and my wife had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were satisfactory and ok but not out of this world, which is what you expect for this price point. We shared one of their milkshake desserts which was good but was more for show than anything. Maybe some of thier other dishes are better but out the door our bill was $105 and felt like it should have been no more than $60 or so. It was good but we expected more.

    We had a great meal and drinks at the Chocolatier! Would definitely go back. We sat in a "tilt a whirl" table which was great for conversation at the round table for 6 of us. The atmosphere, although fun for families, was a little lacking for adults.

    Good was good, prices were oddly off balance. 1 dessert serving was as much as my main entree plate. The “upscale diner” was not quite what I would have expected based on pics/menus online. Just a bit confusing. The meals we had were very well done.

    The concept is very cool. The server was okay. We had a hard time finding them most of the time when we needed something and they forgot part of our order. It was cool and I would go there again but I would order different food because I don’t think the food was all that great for the price.
