    Check your glasses; several of our water glasses were filthy. Also, the drinks are too strong. Although I thought this was a bar, there's is a lot of children with families & teens that go there.

    The drinks and food were good. The wait staff seemed like they would rather be anywhere but there. I came with family but o feel like this would be an awesome date night environment.

    The host could have been a bit friendlier, other than that it was awesome! They should try to incorporate more chocolate into food items.

    I have never eaten at Chocolate Bar, I have only been there once & I will NEVER return. Worst service ever. Rude management & staff. In service industry myself & was appalled at the customer service.

    A/C was broken and staff and customers sweating to death made for an ugly environment. Martini was good, chicken in dishes very bland and dry, but the cheese board app was very good.

    Came in on a Mon for the martini & manis promotion. Great concept, bad execution. Our hot appetizer came out while we were in the back room getting the manis so it just sat on the table for 20 min.

    How am i the first tip about over priced cocktails? I mean, maybe it's the recent college grad in me looking for cheaper drinks, but any other bar can make these drinks for .5 price.
