“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Private booths, access to music and speakers from your table, dark and romantic, delicious desserts. Sampler of 5 was a great thing to order.

“Unique But Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

We climbed the circular stairs to the legendary dessert palace, and were seated in a cozy semicircular booth in the same room with the piano player. Service was friendly. We ordered coffee (very good) and a cheesecake dessert (good, not great). The sporadic piano playing was a real distraction. The piano was tinny, loud and not well played. Plus the pianist was constantly interrupted by answering his big old fashioned black phone (HELLO!!!). I discovered later that he was receiving requests from folks in other rooms for their favorite songs. So...my TIP: do not sit in the room with piano.

“Top notch dessert destination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

You can not beat the macadamia nut sundae. Delicious hot fudge on top . The cafe con leche was perfect. The servic was prompt. Private booths provide a nice dining environment .

“Don't miss this dessert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

It is tough to decide what to order here because everything is so amazing. They are famous for the macadamia nut ice cream, which is excellent, as is the vanilla. It sounds boring, but not here! Everything has excellent flavor. The atmosphere is very private as you get your own "cask" to sit in with your party. If only 2-3 in your party, the piano room is cozy as well.
