Can't visit Rochester without Chocolate and Vines!

The chocolate we ordered was the same high quality chocolate we've purchased from Wegmans it's good chocolate but I was expecting something made on the premises. I think the lighting was too bright and the room too open (this is a house converted into a restaurant). I remember a wine and cheese place years ago on Long Island, the lighting... More

Varied options for chocolate/sweets and wine pairings. Pretty extensive selection of truffles and the wine list was decent for a smaller venue. Definitely a good place to go for something a little sweet, but without breaking the bank.

The chocolate we had was made in Florida and we took some home too. The cheese plate was very flavorful and we enjoyed a wine as well. Really good food. Cheese was local artisan cheese from the Finger Lakes.

We started our New Year's Eve celebration here and expected it to be very busy. It was not and were pleased to find open tables. We were greeted promptly and given our choice of tables. This was my first time here so I had looked at the menu online and already decided my choice of wine before arriving. To my... More

This is where "coffee/tea and dessert" folks can meet "wine and cheese" folks - we find it a great spot to meet friends after dinner, not a bar and not a coffeehouse. I am partial to their thoughtful selection of wines by the glass, and maybe a little artisan cheese to finish the evening. My wife - who cannot drink... More

Best wine list in Rochester -- so many local wines! Such great chocolate, too. Perfect place to go on the way home from a date, or to take a party of people when you want to keep drinking, but also want to move spots. Wonderful birthday spot! Just wish you guys stayed open a leeeetttle bit later so I could... More

The ladies love Chocolate & Vines. The guys like it, too, but really - the ladies are loving this place. Here is why: A lot of wine. A lot of fancy chocolate and desserts. And it's all happening within a beautiful, cozy building. Guys, this is the perfect place for a date. You will earn big points with this one.... More
