    Amazing Food With Great Service!!!

    We had an excellent waiter who knew his stuff. He advised me and my friends about what's good without us even asking. When I was ordering the Iced Chocolate (which actually tastes like chocolate) he told me not to add the flavors because the chocolate is so natural and pure it would be a shame to mix it with chemicals. These little advices here and there make a dining experience that much better. The food was great (although next time I'm ordering only chocolate). I must say that everyone's meal was big and not small portioned like others have mentioned. I also must add that when a person goes to a restaurant they order a meal not a sandwich because that you can get at a deli. The presentation of the chocolate was interesting and I would not compare it to a doctors office as others have mentioned.The bold man is a great place with great chocolate that you can't compare to Hershey's (like some people did) due to the fact that Hershey's cannot be stated to be chocolate. I am not trying to seem rude however, I am very upset about the senseless reviews people give places because they like overeating and used to buffets, and forger how much everything is in the city and say that a $10 to $16 entree is expensive. The only suggestion that I have for this place is the decor and the table landscaping. Some of the tables were in the pathway and all of them were tiny. I wouldn't imagine giving this place anything but a 5 because of the excellent food and service. We are coming back.

    Great Dessert, Okay Service

    The dessert I ordered was amazing. We ordered the chocolate fondue, cheescake and chocolate pizza with peanut butter. Everything was out of this world. The only down side was the service. The guy who was supposed to be our waitor barely even came to the table, we flagged down another waitress to take our order. It took a long time and they didn't ask once how everything was (not that they had too but I believe it is common courtesy). I do reccommend to go here though, it's incredible. Just make sure your relaxed and have a lot of patience.

    dont eat their meal food

    The "Chocolate mess" is as chocolatey and delicious as it sounds. Do NOT waste your time with the dinner. I literally got two pieces of wheat bread with sprouts piled on top for $15. Go for the mess.

    Ripped Off By the Bald Man

    Walked in, sat down, and browsed amazing menu (with amazingly high prices). What they fail to note in the menu are the amazingly small portions. We went with the intention of sharing a yummy dessert - imagine our surprise when we were brought a test tube containing 2oz (not an exageration) of Hershey's Syrup that required gynocological tools to extract said contents from said test tube. Save your ten bucks, go to Key Food and get some Nestle Quik.

    Very overrated

    This place is not worth the price. It is a glorified tourist trap. While the food was good, it was not worth dealing with the snotty hostess and inept service.

    Look no further for great dessert.

    I come here only for dessert, as I have heard the savory fare is nothing special. Flipping through the dessert menu, though, is another experience entirely. Every item is made with extremely high quality chocolate which really makes a difference. Recommend: the Suckao - a chocolate shot in either white, milk or dark. The Melting Heart Chocolate Cake. Also fabulous, although not chocolatey, is the mint-lemon granita. Out of this world!
