hidden treasure of Buffalo

Okay I have to admit this place was impressive and sinful...the chocolate delectable, rich and awesome quality. The artizans who design and create the menu and plates obviously enjoy what they do....don't visit if dieting but for a treat or for serious sin, this is the place to visit...

A casual, fun, place to try out a new drink! Loved the atmosphere, the people, and the wide selection of drinks. Hope to return soon.

This place is so overrated. They charge extra for a candle for your birthday and for ice cubes in your drink (they insist that they provide more alcohol). The wait staff are slow and rude. The management have little to no people skills. I do not know why anyone comes here. I will NEVER return!!!

The chocolate shooters are so small, it's almost a half a shot. Not worth the money, even if you do get a little cup of chocolate. It's like a thimble. It took them 20 minutes to make us a hot chocolate. We were ready to leave by the time it was finally served.

We dropped in for dessert. The service was really slow and almost bordered on impolite. The venue had an odd unclean smell/odor and the menu was very greasy to touch with bits of food on it. The chocolate dessert was decadent, but it lacked the depth of flavor and nuances found in high quality chocolate. The restaurant is a fun... More

Amazing!! This is kind of tucked away but I always go there when I'm in Buffalo. They offer meals, have a bar area and offer the best desserts you've ever tasted! The atmosphere is lively and the staff are so friendly and welcoming. You must try it!!

I may have 3 or 4 drinks per year at business functions, but the idea of having shots of my favorite liqueurs and then being able to eat the dark chocolate shot glasses was very intriguing. So I ordered a flight of 3 which included Grand Marnier, Chambord and Amaretto - DELICIOUS!!! The food and service were good. I had... More

The chocolate salted caramel martini (and the other 5 we had) were the BEST I have ever tasted. I'm going back there next week. It's going to be my one of my staple places to visit and dine. The food was amazing (Napa Valley Chicken and sweet potato fries with the maple dipping sauce were truly out of this world)... More
