Went for drinks and apps before the Indians game, then stopped in after the game for hot chocolate and desserts. Talk about death by chocolate!! Everything was quite tasty.

Menu is extensive. We visited for dessert only but would go back for dinner the next time in the area. Chocolate cake and crepe was delicious!

Waitress was very nice and food was decent.
My pecan chicken coating was slightly over done and there was a fruit fly in a salad.
The waitress didn't offer to do anything when told. Rueben meat gritty. Would probably only go back for drinks and dessert.

The food was delicious and the price was right! I can't wait to return for the chocolate covered pretzel martini!

We came before a concert to have a light affordable meal. We both had steak, mine was the 6 oz filet. I never saw such a thin filet before, but it was only $17. It hit the spot and the meal did not leave me feeling stuffed nor was anything greasy. Perfect for going to a concert. Always love the chocolate martinis. Was not impressed by the belgum chocolate pyramid (mousse dessert though). Stick to a martini only for dessert.

Worst experience ever! 3rd time here was definitely not a charm. The martini rim looked like it was dipped in water, instead of chocolate. The food was mediocre at best. The music was so loud you couldn't hear the person right next to you. The service was fair, at best. Very highly disappointed on the decreased quality of not just one thing, but every single thing. We do not care to return at all after this experience.

im a big fan of their martinis so my husband and i go often on the weekends after our movie dates , every time that we go around midnight it is a hassle to have them give us the chance to have a drink they close at 2:00 but they don't want to seat anybody after 12:00 or at least that what it seems, last time which it was 2 weeks ago there was a concert in cleveland we got there around 11:30 it was busy i had no reservations so i just wanted to get on the waiting list , the manager basically tried to have is go somewhere else, he noticed i got upset and insisted to get on the list and "magically "a table opened up as quickly as the nlink of an eye ...when we sat there were at least three open tables??

i don't know as a customer experience is awful the way this place is manage, today we decided to give it a try in the morning to see if it was just the way it's handled at night , we went for brunch, it was not busy at all... let's start with our server nice girl but her clothes were filthy , that to me is a big turn off , i didnt walk away because i was hungry, ordered an espresso coffee and it was dead cold , food was average but my biggest concern is when i looked around not only the server was filthy but the restaurant as well , if you care to look at the ceiling is completely covered with dust, horrible!!!

Chocolate bar management if you care for your customers and you take our health seriously you should make sure your staff look appropriate and you should keep your restaurant up to meet your health codes so not only your food taste good but also looks good. Hope you can fix thay because we really like your martinis but i dont feel safe there anymore.

Phenomenal managers, amazing food and drinks, and a birthday to remember

This is the place to go for the best food, drinks, and friendliest service in Cleveland. This is hands down my favorite place to go. I have been there several times, and love the chocolate martinis, and the triple mousse. Of course, there are plenty of "non-chocolate" items too. Saturday, my cousin was in town from Connecticut for her birthday. We made reservations through "Open Table." The manager called me ahead of time to try to accommodate my special requests. My cousin couldn't drink alcohol, so the server took time to help her find a "no-tini" that fit her tastes, and they gave her a chocolate shooter desert for her birthday. We had drinks, dinners, and deserts. We thanked both managers for making her birthday one to remember, and they invited us back after the concert. When we got there, they were packed, but found a perfect tiny little table for two for us on the patio. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers (we already had our deserts!), but she got the cold hot- chocolate shake, or something like that, and we shared it. Both managers came to check in on us, and we thanked them again for making the night so special.

This was always my favorite Cleveland place, but now it also has my loyalty.

Had reservations for lunch. Showed up and were seated. Waited for menus and wait staff recognition. Waited some more. Waited some more. Looked around, restaurant was half empty. Waited some more. Got up and walked out.
