“Chocolate Heaven”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

LOVED THIS PLACE. Added this place to our plan based on good reviews and I'm so glad I did. Went with kids (12&16) and my 12yo voted it the best place to eat in NYC. We got Brenner burger, sloppy max (12yo says it was amazing) and the cheese steak waffle (delicious). All recommended. Puddings were all delicious too. Walked straight in at 4pm on a Sunday. Guy serving us was friendly, service was quick and the place was cool. It's not cheap but I found it good quality food with great pudding choices and would defo go back. The Caribbean punch cocktail was pretty amazing too (if not a tad expensive)

I love this place. People are friendly and dinner was great. But best of all was the dessert!!!!! Selections from chocolate to ice cream to milkshakes was all great. I enjoyed this place, that it why it's given a 5-Starr restraunt!!!!!!!

“Love love love Choclate”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

This is the place for chocolate lovers. This time we tried the food and enjoyed it a lot. The sandwich was made in waffle-like bread, which I never ate something like this before. The deserts were fantastic. Don't miss the Mocha Cappuccino, I loved mine with melted white chocolate….

“What's the Fuss About”
Reviewed June 19, 2014

I was I "had" to take my 13 year old granddaughter to this "Very, very, in place." Both of us felt it was a poor imitation of Serendipity 3 which has been around for more than 50 years. The food was "okay." The chocolate drink ordered by my granddaughter was cloyingly sweet. It was pricey for what you got. They had a large retail section...though I have no problem with selling your wares, but the chocolate was nothing special. Extremely noisy in a loft / factory like setting with NO noise dampening. If it's a great chocolate and funky experience you want coupled with excellent food, stick with Serendipity,s.
