Wow - Delightful!!

Was in town for business, but took an evening to meet a friend for a treat. Wow. Nothing short of divine. Mac and cheese was rich and hearty, but not too heavy. The butterscotch hot chocolate was... Wow. I don't even have words for it. I can't wait to go back again the next time I'm in town. I've... read more

Mexican hot chocolate- need I say more??? Wow- and no one comes close to making perfect pancakes. Mindy, they are the best- even with the new change in size. While I have had breakfast, lunch and dinner there for years- the experience never changes. The food reaches beyond my expectations EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. While it's not fair that I have... More

I ate a regular meal at the Hot Chocolate restaurant. It was half a chicken and it was excellent. However, I soon forgot the chicken after eating my dessert. The marshmallows are even homemade! There is also a large choice of hot chocolate. I wish I could have drank one, but I was so full I couldn't. My friend took... More

Whoever said you should never meet your heroes because they will disappoint has never idolized Mindy Segal or dined at Hot Chocolate. I had a corn salad and the lamb steak. The tzatziki accompanying it was the best I ever had. I relied on the waitress’ suggestion for wine, the name of which is lost to me; it fit my... More

Had a great Saturday brunch with the family! Got there when it opened at 10:00am and were promptly seated and served. Had great attention from waiters. The place got filled right await and the plates took some time to get to the table. The wait was worth it when we got our plates. The orange juice was freshly made and... More

We came to Mindy's to celebrate my birthday and had a fabulous meal! The food was well seasoned flavorful-for ex: my mussels were fresh and plump in an exceptionally tasty broth. It is a higher price point, something to be aware of before you go. I felt that we had a very special experience that was very fitting for the... More

I love this place. The food is always great and just different enough to make it interesting. I started with the green gazpacho soup and the grilled sepia starters which tasted great. We choose the lobster tagliatelle and the saffron agnolotti as our main courses, again delicious. Finished it of with some of Mindy's cookies. Always a great place to... More

So we were visiting friends in Chicago over the July 4th long weekend, and our hosts were constantly raving about this place. Unfortunately, they'd had some windows smashed and were closed for a few days, BUT luckily on our last day they reopened for brunch and we were able to get a table. There were 4 of us, we had...
