Freezing cold. No enclosure. One barely functioning Hester placed behind table. Couldn’t feel face hands or feet when food arrived so it had to be packed up. Hoping to give it another try when things reopen.
Staff doing their best with what they have

I love this place! It's so whimsical, welcoming and fun. It makes you enjoy food outside of the taste and their presentation is impeccable. Every chocolate item on the menu is special and their drinks are amazing. The decor is straightforward but the chocolate tubes with the Christmas lights make it worth another trip if you haven't been in a while.

It was our anniversary date! This was so special because he’s never been here. He was amazed that he could make s’mores and roast marshmallows. It was a great night being there. I’ve been here for over 6 years now and I always enjoy coming here. Staff is friendly. I love the atmosphere and the choice of music they played since its the holidays. Hot cocoa is the best!

Food is always great. While our waiter forgot to bring an extra plate or serving spoon once or twice, he was very personable. Social distancing during this awful pandemic was strictly followed as well as mask wearing, which added to our comfort while eating out.

Needed a special experience for our daughters 16th Birthday and this place was perfect! Our waiter was fantastic. I wish I had gotten his name to give him kuddos. It is a great place to take teens.

The steak and potatoes was amazing! The butter was fascinating. The Alfredo cant say the same. It was missing something maybe garlic or salt, a piece of bread or salad. I couldn't put my finger on it. Also some sort of bread or maybe chocolate on the table with you water would've been nice. The drinks are bomb! Service was great and we thought super affordable. Would go back again but wouldn't do the pasta.

We had a rsvp but waited 39 min to set down. Seems like they had one server and it was too long to get our food .

The menu is very limited now (most likely due to COVID). I had intentions of getting brunch and was disappointed that they now only have two options for breakfast. My waiter was great and attentive and there were few people in the restaurant. The food that I did order was pretty good.

We loved it there, they took great precautions with the pandemic, all the tables were 6 feet apart and disinfected. We made reservations and didn’t have to wait to be seated. The service was great as well as the food!

They didn’t wipe the table down before we got there. I know that because there was a long black nasty hair on the table and it certainly wasn’t mine. They didn’t take anyone’s temperatures before entering and inside looked just as packed as it did before COVID. Not one COVID precaution was taken at all. Very disappointed because I have a lot of memories here.

I’ve been wanting to come here for over 4 years now because I’m a chocolate fanatic and honestly, if it wasn’t for the 40 min wait, I would have given it five stars because the food, the drinks, the atmosphere, and the service was all marvelous. The only thing was, that I had a reservation for 8:30 and wasn’t seated until 9:13 and in regards to that, there should be more organization because the reason for making a reservation is to not wait 40 mins but other than that, it was great!! Thank you for the experience!!
