Great desserts but I'd leave the wine.

Sorry wine snob, I hate ordering wine by the grape variety & although the merlot was fine I have to say I didn't care much for the chocolate around the rim - but it is a unique selling point. ( From the UK & you can't beat Cadburys). However the desserts were great.

Definitely worth checking out! We walked by this place everyday of our honeymoon and finally decided to stop in on our last night, very glad we did! Awesome deserts and even better ambiance.

I have no doubt that once you look around At the reaction to the food some people re enjoying that now know two things: One stressed is desserts spelled backwards and they are really ready admit some desserts are better than sex. First of all the ambiance is romantic so you will have made up for the simple snack as... More

This is a once in a lifetime death by chocolate indulgence with dim lighting, seductive decor and romance oozing out of every chocolate kiss.

We keep coming back to Better Than Sex. I think it's better every time. My favorite is the sex appeal- Moscato in a white chocolate rimmed glass! It's delicious. I can't remember the name of my husband's dessert, but it had chocolate, Irish cream, and bacon. He loved it!

Better than sex has an amazing concept with the unique flair. It has a luxurious and romantic feel in the atmosphere. Desserts that are to die for and drinks like you've never had before. For larger groups try the back bar room with a private entrance off Turman street looks for the Nook E sign. The staff was great especially... More

The story behind the husband and wife fun restaurant is sweet. The staff was all friendly and a little flirty. We made reservations and were seated immediately. We had the coffee in the caramel and the semi sweet chocolate dipped glasses. It was amazing. We also ordered the chocolate grilled cheese and the banana bazooka. They were both good, the... More

the atmosphere is fun and sexy, the coffee drink and deserts are well..almost better than sex. Reservations must be made within two weeks of your visit. I would definitely go back

The atmosphere is dark, upscale and intimate with tastefully nude photos/drawings around the interior. The desserts were amazing - and very rich. There are also fantastic wines and cocktails with dessert rimming on the glasses. We were able to set up a reservation which I would suggest as the place seemed to get very busy. It's a little expensive but... More

2 Couples....Each of us ordered something different so that we could all have a taste....the consensus was that two of the desserts were Over-the-Top exceptional and the other two desserts while good...did not live up to the top-notch offerings we expected. Chocolate rimmed coffees and Irish Cream also got A+ ratings! And we all also agreed that our server was... More
