Tasty desserts

Stopped here after we had dinner somewhere else and wished we had gone here first. Place is cozy. Desserts were good. Service was very nice. Stuff my puff was more than a dessert, was a conversation item. Money well spent here. Will definitely return.

Good service about 5-10 minute wait and far above average chocolate cake. The strawberry cake there is average, but far to sweet for my taste. Great place to grab dessert after a nice dinner. All together Bittersweet is a great place to grab some dessert after dinner.

The place was packed, and had a really nice neighborhood atmosphere. I had high expectations based on reviews and the gorgeous pictures in the place. We ordered the Belgian Waffle and the Flourless Chocolate Cake. They were both plentiful, though not as delectable as I had hoped for. Granted, I am pretty spoied in the food department.

This is a wonderful little place to head out for dessert and coffee or to meet friends for a light bite to eat and a few glasses of wine. The staff is friendly and happy to make a recommendation. Located in the heart of Syracuse, close to other dining and bars. It's a great way to start or finish an... More

After having dinner at a popular restaurant in Armory Square we decided to try Bittersweet after hearing such wonderful reviews. We weren't disappointed. The server was very friendly and the desserts were delectable. I would recommend this nice place.

My boyfriend and I went here for a late dinner and had a fabulous time. The room had dimmed lights and it was very cozy. Nothing fancy, so don't go here if you're looking for fine dining. The food tasted great, and their desserts even better! I thought it was a great place to go for a date and cant... More
