This was our dessert stop and the martinis are just plain awesome! They have quite the selection of martinis along with light snack food. The cheese cakes, cakes and other desserts are made by the owner daily. This is a must stop if you like flavored martinis.

We drove to Portland for the day and just wanted a coffee (so we thought) and someone told us about this place. We loved how cozy it was on a cold wet day. We ended up ordering martinis and snacks. We had the cucumber sandwiches, potstickers, nuts and cheese and bread and olive oil. Everything was great. We didn't want... More

The Bar of Chocolate was an awesome addition to the many cool spots in Portland Maine! Kevin the bartender kept us entertained and made some of the best drinks on record! When in Miane we will return!

We spent a night in Portland bar hopping and came here after dinner. I had the peanut butter martini and wife had the Irish coffee martini. I tried my wife's and it was really good. Great coffee flavor, not too strong tasting. But for mine, the peanut butter martini, I was floored. I don't typically order martinis, usually beer or... More

Swung by for a pre-dinner cocktail & snack.... perfect! Also excellent for a post-dinner dessert & drink as well. My espresson martini was the perfect pick-me-up after a day of wandering the city. Wish I had room for one of those desserts, but alas, I'll have to visit again next time.

We stopped for a dessert drink after a recent Seadog's game. I was dying to have the peanut butter martini after reading about the reviews. It was truly scrumptious, but I was SOOO disappointed that there was no mini peanut butter cup at the bottom like other reviewers had mentioned. They must be cutting costs! The only other negatives were... More

If you only go here for a Martini, try them, all of them if you want, We went as a group during happy hour and sampled peanut butter, irish coffee and chocolate which were all amazing and reasonably priced!

I stopped in following a sunset cruise and a so-so slice of pizza in search of dessert. The chocolate cake with caramel sea salt icing is outrageous, and went very well with the glass of Malbec that I enjoyed. The bartender/server was friendly.
