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

Best decaf coffee I've ever had! Nice array of chocolates for an after dinner treat in a cool neighborhood with restaurants, galleries, clothing store and bakery. The owners are very pleasant and welcoming.

I visited Chocolate and Vines expecting a cozy, sophisticated and interesting spot. What I found was a loud, dark and uncomfortable place with a pool table in the middle. The people next to me had both their cell phones going, their kid was playing a video game and it was so dark at my table with a hard wooden chair... More

We went here for Valentine's Day to get some wine and appetizers before a show. We were greeted right when we came in the door which was nice and our waitress was very friendly. She showed us to our table. That's when things started going down hill. The table was tiny! (As they all were.) And the seats, though covered... More

This was my third visit to this establishment and I have not been disappointed. I usually like to order and try new things when I return to a place, but I cannot resist the Chocolate Truffle Gelato Zabaione cream center with caramelized hazelnuts ... simply not to miss! At the last visit I tried numerous chocolates and was impressed with... More

Nice place to go and enjoy a glass of vine and a dessert or their ample cheese plate. The combinations change on a regular basis so it is always different but always enjoyable.

I had purchased a Groupon for this place after hearing about it from a friend. I am so glad I did! My boyfriend and I went after going to The Park Ave Festival...We both ordered beers (Troegs Java Head Stout and Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA). Also got a cheese plate and a few chocolates to share. Everything was wonderful.... More
