Chocolate galore

When you first sit down you are greatly kindly by the waitress/waiter. They bring out sample desserts! My favorite. I am not a huge chocolate fan, but my family members are and they rave over this place. I ordered something with butterscotch, it was amazing!! Would highly recommend this place... read more

My favorite dessert at The Chocolate Room is the Chocolate cake, which btw is also Oprah favorite. Just sayin. My BFF loves the Chocolate Almond cake. The sorbets are meh, especially the chocolate one. As for the chocolates, nothing amazing. I recommend La Burdick in Flatiron.

I'd heard about this place from friends for years. I finally had the chance to stop by during a recent trip to New York. First of the all the decor is warm and inviting. We stopped by at about 8:30 on a Monday evening and it was almost full inside. I had a very yummy chocolate molten cake which comes... More

I can't believe to what I see... Chocolate powder melted with milk and mixed with a mixer... What if I buy it in a supermarket and just warm it up.. Please

I mainly visit The Chocolate Room when visiting Brooklyn to pick up fantastic bean to bar chocolate from all over the world. They have a nice selection of cacao bean to bar from Central and South America as well as Africa. If your idea of chocolate is something from Belgium or Switzerland, get educated that cacao is grown only within... More

If chocolate is love, that is. After a day of sightseeing, visiting family, eating at fine restaurants, this last stop was the best. I had a very small Moroccan vanilla bean ice cream with chocolate sauce that was truly divine. I floated back to our hotel and had sweet dreams...and an urge to return for more.! If chocolate is your... More

( We classed this as our dessert following our Alma lunch ) hubby had the Brooklyn brewery dark chocolate stout with the chocolate almond cake and I had the Youngs double... More

Have been coming here a few times a year and have never been disappointed! My faves here are their hot chocolate, which is to die for and almond cake (which is $9, but absolutely delicious). Ambience and setting is both great to bring a date for some sweets or just have coffee with friends. Go for it!

Went as a group of 3 at 9:30pm on a weekday and we still had to wait about 20 minutes. It was well worth the wait as the food was delicious and we got to try some chocolate as we waited too. Definitely get the CHOCOLATE CHIP ALMOND CAKE. It was so delicious.
