Everything was great. But there were a few disappointing things.

I provided a couple of details ahead of time and it was disappointing the server wasn’t aware of it. I told them we were celebrating my wife’s birthday and that she had a gluten allergy.

I wish they would have come to the table and said something along the lines of “I understand we have a gluten allergy here” and told us what she could have on the menu. But we had to tell her and she had to run to the kitchen to check if certain things were gluten free.

As far as her birthday stuff, I was hoping they would surprise us at the end with a gluten free dessert and her a candle or something. I even called the day before and told them to do that and they said they would. Instead, the waitress opened up the evening with “are we celebrating anything this evening?” So much for the call and so much for the surprise. So that was disappointing.

We also showed up 7 minutes late for our reservation and were told to wait another 10. Not the worst thing, but it did put a little damper on things. The lack of knowledge around the allergy and birthday were more annoying. What was the point of even filling out that info on opentable and calling ahead of time?

A friend and I came here for lunch to catch up. The servers were very polite and attentive. Food was a little slow in arriving probably due to the chocolate and chocolate making classes going on in the front of the restaurant. Loved the food. There were so many choices I wanted to try so I'll have to go back. Hopefully it won't be during one of the classes which tend to get very loud.

Sandwiches are a bit messy to eat given they are moist and stack up about 4 inches. Crab cake sandwich was huge but it wasn’t as tasty as those from several other restaurants. Avocado flatbread was great and the sweet and sour cauliflowers were delicious.
Dessert was amazing and the espresso was excellent.

Food was amazing as well ad service. Will be going back again. The ribeye was delicious and I know it’s kind of nonsense to order fries at a nice restaurant like this, but the garlic parmesan fries was amazing, we ordered two servings! For drinks, I had to get the moussetache, really good!! And the allure was really good to, champagne like. For dessert, I shared the manjari, if you enjoy intense chocolate, it’s definitely worth it

This is one of our favorite "special" restaurants in the area. It feels like a restaurant you'd have to travel to D.C. to visit, but it's great to have a place that's this unique and delicious so close to home.

Had dinner here for my birthday. Excellent cocktails, food and service. It is a small space so it was a little cramped.

Every dish incorporates chocolate in some way. The chocolate is not overpowering. Very light touch with it which I was happy about. My scallops were encrusted with cocoa nibs which gave a nutty flavor to the dish. The cauliflower purée also incorporated white chocolate which just gave the purée a creamier texture. My husband’s short ribs had a chocolate rub and were so tender they fell apart as soon as the fork hit them. All the food was divine. Of course the desserts were delectable as well, as expected for a place known for their chocolate.

Food was excellent

My only real complaint is the very noisy environment. Lots of hard surfaces and creating a din Having a fine meal in a noisy restaurant takes away from the experience. Maybe they can get someone to help deaden the sound

The service on our first visit was excellent. This time our party of four got our meals about ten minutes apart. The Caesar salad was delicious. The short ribs over cooked with a gravy that was overwhelming.

Excellent meal. Food was very good. Dessert was small in portion size but also excellent. Would like to get a small bit of bread with the meal - only suggestion for this restaurant. We went for restaurant week so the value was good for the 3 course meal.

Date night with wifey and we couldn’t have picked a better place.

You have to appreciate service when they ask if you’re celebrating anything, and discuss the tempo of how you’d like to roll out your courses.

We had the calamari (10/10) for an appetizer, my wife ordered the sweet corn risotto (10/10) and I had the bone-in rib eye (10/10).

All of the Conche team were pleasant and looked out for all of the diners (refills on drinks, taking away plates, etc).

I’m outlining all of this because you’re truly getting value here, and we definitely will be back.

Memorable dinner, memorable food.
