Ordered chicken panini problem was served with raw bacon. Brought this to servers attention who did nothing never offered to recook bacon. Once I removed the bacon sandwich was good. Also expensive tea was like drinking colored water. Great chocolates.

We came here for a group meeting in the back room (I forget the name). Although the food is really good, what really stands out is their drinking chocolate, which comes with a variety of added essences and flavors. The staff are helpful and friendly, and came to check on us every once in a while to make sure we... More

We came here for a light dinner, plus coffee, on a Friday evening. They were not horribly busy, so we were served pretty quickly. One orders and pays at the counter, then takes a number to one's table, where they bring your order. Their salads are tasty, but not very large (a bit on the expensive side for the amount... More

If you like chocolate, this is the place to go for a lite meal and/or dessert. We stopped in for dessert and were not disappointed. We had the couverture dark chocolate drink infused with cinnamon masala. It was rich and hearty with a marshmallow on top for more taste. The great desserts were a bread pudding with mixed berry and... More

This place is known to charge several false transactions on one's credit card. However, the chocolate is excellent; the food is good.

Went to Eclipse Chocolate in the morning for a coffee and pastry. What a great place, great coffee, great drinking chocolate, fabulous homemade pastries and really friendly staff. Our server, Daniel, was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Eclipse is a little pricey but you get quality.

We used a Groupon deal and went on date night, otherwise the food is pricy. My dinner was the meat pie but the crust tasted like Crisco so it was too thick and too much of shortening. It was also too heavy. Desserts were great thought and the chocolate truffles that we got to take home were excellent. Will probably... More

We got a groupon for a brunch for two, and oh my god were we satisfied when we left the restaurant! Firstly, all their plates contain either chocolate, caramel or vanilla which, for a sweet tooth like myself, is absolute heaven. With the groupon we got a main dish with a side, a dessert and a drink each, plus truffles... More
