Great service, with one of the best Shrimp and Grits meals. No rush on Valentine's Day brunch. Fabulous music, can get a little loud, but the experience was what I was look for. Good for couples and friends out.

This place is just awesome. I've been here sooo many times and I love it. Specially in the winter is very fun. I went there In January 2015 and it was a super cold day, but inside is nice and warm. Once you come in you can smell the deliciousness of the chocolate they are known for. I made reservations... More

We visited this place on the recommendation of several friends as the place to visit in New York. We were ignored by 2 waiters when trying to place our initial orders, they were more concerned with texting on their cell, hiding it behind their trays than taking our order. The shakes were very good, I had the peanut butter turtle... More

Chilly afternoon asked for a hot chocolate and bald man had some to offer. She took peanut hot chocolate that was good, not too sweet. Mine was a Italian thick with white chocolate - like drinking a chocolate bar, sweet as crazy! It's not a bargain, but the staff was friendly and the selection of hot chocolates is madness. When...

This place is unique in that there are so many chocolate options. I've been here many times and really love it. It is insanely crowded, you need to make a reservation or go at a weird time. You will not have room for real food and desert. My suggestion is to share. We really like the waffle sandwiches and the... More
