    We loved all of our food except the loaded Mac and cheese, which didn’t seem to have much meat in it. Chocolate martini and Reece’s milkshake were fantastic. Salmon was perfect and pear salad was a real treat. Our waiter Trey (sp?) was gracious and made our evening really fun.

    Everything was great! My salmon was the best I’ve ever had and the martini flight was brilliant, why choose one when you can have 3! Megan, our waitress, was phenomenal. And bingo was icing on the cake. All around great food, spot, atmosphere for dinner with friends I’ve know for 45 years.

    Everything was good. Our server was fabulous. The food was just ok. I usually have the salmon, which is always amazing. But this time I had the chicken and waffles. It was good, but the waffles were very crisp and hard to cut. Nothing stood out as being delicious. Just good. But we will be back. There are a lot of things we still want to try.

    Our meal at the Chocolatier was delicious. The small hints of chocolate in each dish were fun and provided a different take on traditional American fare. The decorative elements relating to Hersheypark added whimsy to an otherwise contemporarily decorated space. We will be back!

    Food was incredibly inconsistent and very slow to come out but service was good. My crispy chicken sandwich was great but the chicken fingers were crunchy they were so over done, one of the burgers was so burnt an entire layer came off the bottom of it and it was like shoe leather. The nachos and beyond burger were dried out like they sat waiting to be served too long. We likely won’t be back.

    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!

    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.
