I recently took my 13-year-old granddaughter to The Conche for Sunday Brunch for our “Girls Day Out.” We both loved it (and anyone who knows 13-year-old girls, knows that it’s an accomplishment to make them happy!). The shrimp and grits was delicious and one of the most authentic and best I’ve had in this area. My granddaughter got the “Eggs & Hash” and it was soooo yummy! Dessert (oh yes, you MUST try their desserts!) was divine - dark chocolate creme brûlée - oh my!

Fantastic brunch on my wife's birthday. Originally made reservations for 2 people but the kids decided that they wanted to be there so needed to change to 6. Conche was great about changing reservation. Food service was very quick, chocolate was terrific. My only issue was I figured out why I didn't drink Bloody Mary's. They are gross. Others at our table thought they were fantastic.

The dessert options were excellent. The appetizer and the meal were average. The price for French Fries and a Flatbread Pizza were higher than expected since the product itself was not exceptional. The restaurant specializes in chocolates; certainly the Passionfruit dessert was sour and sweet, a well blended piece that was very tasty. But I feel the appetizer or the entree did not rise to that level, and the use of chocolate in those items seemed forced.

This was our second visit. We were seated next to the kitchen which was loud, at times. I was surprised we were seated there since we made a reservation one week prior to the date. The entrees were excellent. Both times I am a little disappointed that they aren't able to make more things gluten free but I am able to find something I like. The appetizer gluten free options are limited and the desserts are limited to two options, again disappointing.

The service was excellent. I still think it is rather higher priced than others in the same category.

Excellent and creative food. A good Valentines meal but lacked romantic atmosphere and With a touch of wine it finished being more pricey than expected @ $350 for the two of us.

We enjoyed the special Valentine's menu. Four of the five courses get a solid A and one course a B+, reduced only because we did not favor not the lobster foam. Problem with overcooked steak quickly fixed. We mentioned during reservation and again when confirming reservation that we were celebrating special occasion, but no one acknowledged it. The place became quite loud when beginning to fill. Would suggest noise reducer. Just saw stylish design at the new I'm Eddie Cano (fab Italian food). We will be back.

I would recommend it to a friend for dessert only. Sitting so close to the table on either side of you doesn't allow for an "intimate" experience. Dessert allows for a quick in and out and less claustrophobia. The chocolates were amazing and our server Randy was on point.

Spent a much needed romantic date night here with my husband after hearing rave reviews on a local FB board about it. We are big fans of Halloween Wars as well so when we heard Santosh was the Chef, I immediately made reservations. Truly was one of the most flavorful and enjoyable meals I’ve ever had. Service was impeccable and we loved the atmosphere. We will be returning!!

The three of us arrived for our 7:30pm reservation and were told that our table was not ready. They said we could sit at the bar until our table was ready. They apologized and finally sat us down at 8:20pm. They gave us french fries and a narrow flute of a sweet bubbly drink. Probably to make up for the wait. The food was great. Ahi tuna poke we shared for appetizer. I had the short ribs. We had a delicious dessert. We split the dinner 3 ways and it was $47 each with tip. I probably won't go back. Too loud. Food was great but the wait was no fun.

if you change your menu with 3or 4 more vegetarian options it will be good.

First time there, we (myself & 2 friends) were pleasantly surprised by the food quality & the presentation.
It was not busy so the server was very attentive as well as knowledgeable.
We have since recommended the restaurant to friends & we’re looking forward to dining there again. Thank you!

Overall we really enjoyed the restaurant. There are some minor elements to the overall restaurant that can be a challenge (I am sure more for the staff) is the narrow entrance. Not many people can wait for their table and look at the delicious chocolate on display. The second area that I would like to have seen incorporated more is the ability for more tables to have a view of the chef's making the chocolates!

Service, service was good. Our server had a good energy and was able to help us with recommendations on drinks and food. I enjoyed the way chocolate was incorporated into drinks (I went with the Old Fashioned) and it was a neat twist to the original.

Food, food is smaller in portions and overall the entree's were good, but a little on the pricey side for overall value. The appetizers round (went with the calamari) and enjoyed the way they incorporated chocolate into squid. The Mac and cheese, cool concept however we found it to be too rich and over salted.

Desert round, lots and lots of chocolate! The balance of the chocolate cream brûlée paired up with the savoriness of the salted caramel ice cream. Very good presentation and overall really enjoyed our evening there.

If you are a lover of wine, we need to join forces and work on them increasing their wine list! Very short, must not be the spot to enjoy good wine.

I had the NY strip. I requested medium rare, but it came medium well. I sent it back with one of the servers and a few mins later, my server came and tried to make a point that it’s medium rare when cut closer to the middle. Regardless, no point in proving that you’re right even though the meat was clearly unevenly cooked.

Love this place.
Only reason I gave a low mark for Ambiance was being placed next to a table of 8 "partying" women on date night. My wife and I had a hard time hearing each other.
That aside, we'll be back again, and again.

We had a great time! We were huge Coco Sala fans and were upset when it closed but finding out about this place from the same chef made us feel a lot better. We came for a big birthday celebration. 4 of us have birthdays this week so we decided to all go out to celebrate. The food is fantastic and the drinks are awesome. I totally recommend the sweet and sour cauliflower, the New York strip steak and any dessert.
The restaurant is about an hour away from us but we definitely will be going back for our next celebration (or when I can convince my husband the hour drive is worth it for a regular meal).
