We went to The Chocolate Bar during restaurant week. I received the worst service ever. The waiter didn't write down our order which I find rude. The beef vegetable soup I had was good. I ordered the filet mignon medium well. It definitely came back medium (might be because the waiter didn't write down our order). The asparagus were cold... More

We had dinner at The Chocolate Bar during Buffalo and Western New York's "Local Restaurant Week". They're listed as a dessert place on Facebook, but the dinner we had was very good, as was the service. Of course, we had a chocolate cheesecake, which was excellent.

Dropped in during restaurant week, no reservation. "No problem!" Place was full, but they found a spot at the window bar. First time here so asked for suggestions; really helpful and patient server guided my choices and I had fried chicken and waffles. Excellent choice: flan for dessert was beautifully presented, and delicious. Atmosphere was ok, too loud for me,... More

Happy hour has nice specials on the menu. The fried raviollis has a generous portion and filling. The Chocolate martinins are amazing and the dessserts offer a wide variety. If you are in Buffalo it's worth a stop in.

We stayed at the Embassy Suites and decided we needed something chocolate after dinner. We decided to try this place and were not disappointed. The bartenders specialty was a Somoa Martini! It was amazing. The dessert we had was also very good. We had a very good experience.

I went here with my co-workers and was letdown. The Chocolate Margaritas were good, but it took 20 minutes for one to come out. & another 5 minutes for the other two for my co-workers. We ordered three appetizers for us to share. We waited a good 30 minutes for our food on a slow Monday at 11am. And again... More

Very good beer and food! I ordered caprese salad and chocolate baguette with a chocolate stout beer. Very good. Plenty of different things to pick. Chocolate baguette was to die for would definitely order again but very rich so definitely share. I love this place!!!!! If service wasn't so slow I would've given it 5 stars. It wasn't busy and...

I went into this place with such high expectations and they were shot down quickly. From entering I was not greeted, kinda left standing to figure it out on my own. The mixed drinks were watered down and expensive. The dinner was below average and the chocolate dessert was average. Don't buy into the hype.

Im sorry you feel this way. We are extremely proud of our drinks and use only Top shelf liquors .. we are overly generous in the amount of alcohol in our beverages! Let me know when you came in and what you ordered We would love you to have the proper Chocolate Bar experience More

The bartender was very upbeat and helpful. I wanted a cucumber martini but they were out of something (can't remember sorry) so she went out of her way to muddle the cucumber for me. Top notch service and drinks.
