The place could use fresh coat of paint. More chocolate options...

The food was plated beautifully! Taste was just was good.

Staff looked hot and over worked, yet still smiled and was friendly.

I really loved the idea of the place. But it seemed more geared toward a martini bar then a restaurant, that is the drinks and desserts were delicious but the entrees were not worth the price.

Our dinners were very good and the desserts were excellent. Our server was top notch... very friendly and helpful. The prices were very reasonable for a downtown restaurant so the overall value was very good. The only drawback was our seating. We were at a table for two in the middle of the second floor. We felt like we were in the way as waitresses had to squeeze between our table and those next to us. As a result, it was not a very intimate setting. However, we would still highly recommend this restaurant but you might want to insist on a table along the wall or the railing.

Great place to eat if you are looking for something different. Mojitos are the best I’ve ever had. Strawberry flatbread was a great choice. Fettuccini Alfredo needed a little more sauce. The bread appetizer was amazing!

We all enjoyed our night there. The drinks and desserts were fantastic. No one had anything bad to say about it, other than the dinner menu is a little limited as well as some of the call spirits you may be looking for aren't always available.

Had a fun chocolate martini before dinner that was super yummy and took advantage of the restaurant week menu. I had the Salmon and my guest had the filet mignon. It was a perfect date night dinner.

I think this was my fourth year in a row of partaking in Local Restaurant Week. Their menu is one of my all time favorites. While I am pescatarian, I know all of my friends LOVE the chicken and waffles, I love the ravioli, their desserts are decadent, and their Caesar salad, while simple, is perfect, never overdressed!

Food is excellent. Service is always great. Hostess could have been a bit more organized, but it was a crowded Saturday night. Noise level is high, so be prepared. Nothing can beat the excellent menu and great service.

DISCLOSURE : it was restaurant week when I went so I understand to a degree, but the hostess was rude first thing when we got in there. Thankfully our waitress (blonde hair, highschool teacher) was very nice despite being super busy with other tables. Food was eh. I got the filet medium rare and it came out basically raw. Like I said though, i understand it was restaurant week so not the best time to come in and dine here for the first time.

Restaurant week and the menu looked nice, so we made reservations. We were seated right away, even though it was a very busy & crowded Saturday. Our waitress was pleasant, the drinks were tasty and the food, delicious!!! And the value was excellent! I would definitely go back again!

Made this reservation a few weeks ago for my best friend’s birthday. Our intent was to eat dinner, have desserts, and martinis, as I have been several times before and the food has been outstanding. Was extremely disappointed and upset, upon being seated we were unable to order anything but the preset food menu, as well as desserts. This was because it was “restaurant week.” So frustrating we couldn’t order the food we wanted. Especially since we weren’t informed of this event. We had shared the menu among our friend group and everyone was so looking forward to it, but ended up leaving and going somewhere else.

Went there for dinner to celebrate our Anniversary which also happened to be during Restaurant week. Made reservations which were perfect, hostess staff was professional and timely.
Our waiter was not as impressive, ordered the Steak and Shrimp Meal. Steak medium rare which came out very rare. Brandon immediately apologized and offered to take it back to have it properly prepared. It was brought back cooked on the outside but still quite rare on the inside. I did not complain, I just accepted it. It was then that I noticed that I did not receive my Shrimp. Brandon once again apologized and rushed back with them. For $11 those three Shrimp were quite small. Disappointed.
Dessert time, I ordered a decaf with my dessert which was rushed out, and I waited for well over 10 minutes, no Brandon. We finally flagged down Liam, our water guy and told him that we didn’t my decaf and cancelled the coffee. Shortly after Brandon stopped by and apologized once again. He told us that he would take one of the beers off of our bill.
Brandon brings the check and the coffee charge is on it. We tell him and he apologizes and takes the charge off.
For the money we spent we were not impressed and will not return. Very disappointed.

- extremely loud
- dust on the railings by our table
- one waitress on the second floor for about 12-14 tables
- didn't get drink cups for water until the salads came out and after we ordered our food
- order wasn't taken for almost 30 minutes when we sat down
- alcoholic drinks took about 25 minutes to show up
- couple that walked in 10 mins after us got their alcohol before us, food before us, dessert before us, and their bill all before we got ours
- just overall terrible experience. I will probably never return or recommend this restaurant to a friend

I went there with my son for restaurant week which was a good deal but they advertise five dollar glasses of wine and my first one was that price but when I ordered a second one it was eight dollars and that waitress told me because happy hour was over but that’s not what’s your ad said so I was disappointed in that

This was restaurant week so one would expect places to be on their A game. I ordered a salmon fish that was not recognizable as salmon. It was very thin and undercooked. To their credit, management tool it away and replaced it with another better cooked piece but by then my dining partner had finished her meal
He also have is two little chocolate cups with liquor. I also thought my dirty martin i was overpriced and kind of bland.

I had NO idea that this was anything more than a martini bar, was I ever wrong! I had the salmon . It came with wild rice, not my favorite. It was DELICIOUS! I don't know what kind or how they made it but it, along with the asparagus, complimented the salmon to perfection. Had creme brulee for dessert and took a piece of "Mud" (chocolate peanut butter concoction) to go. Drink choices are unbelievable. Highly recommend. Y

Not unless you have tons of time to kill.
Arrived on time for a 530 reservation, the place was so uncomfortably warm tbe windows were steamed up, at 645 still no food.....had to ask server to just box it...not able to enjoy a nice dessert and coffee. It was not overly busy either.
We were offered nothing but a gratuitous apology.
I do like the food here, but have never received acceptable service... so I'm finally putting it in writting.

We waited an hour for food and it came out undercooked. The restaurant was not busy and it was 5:00pm on a Sunday. No real excuse. The manager didn't even realize we had waited an hour when we asked to see him after we sent our food back. It was a sandwich and a crepe. How do you mess that up?

There were 2 problems that I had. 1.) the tables were way too close together on the top floor. It felt as if I was at the same table with the people next to us.

2.) All myself and my mother ordered were 2 flatbreads and we waited an hour and a half for them which was far too long of a wait.

I love this place and definitely will be back but it seemed there were not enough staff and it took far too long

Our retirement party of 6 arrived on a quiet Sunday at 5. We were seated immediately. Our waitress, Cassie, was very attentive, informative & friendly. We loved the drink & dessert menu & found the entree menu varied & just as appealing. Our special occasion was made even more fun at The Chocolate Bar. Thank you!
