Went there and for a party of 5 we got burgers and one chicken fingers and a dessert to pay over 130 seems much.

Reservations were easy to make and my 11-yr old daughter and I were immediately seated upon arrival. My daughter doesn't eat much so we only ordered the Ferris Wheel shared appetizer and some drinks. The drinks and food came quickly, so I was surprised to find that the cheese dip tasted like someone took cheese whiz straight from the jar and didn't heat it. The avocado bites, chicken tenders and bbq wings weren't warm at all, they were almost cold. The buffalo dip was a little warm, so must have been the last added. Overall, though, it tasted as if most of the food had been sitting out for quite awhile, without a heat lamp, well before I had placed the order. It tasted ok, but not for the price point of around $36. I wouldn't order it again, and hesitate to come back and order entrees for fear of having the same experience. The Troeg's Cocao beer was delightful though!

The service was slow, the bathrooms were dirty, and the food wasn’t very impressive. My son’s pasta was cold and had very little sauce. My husband’s chili had a strange taste. My flat bread had very little squash on it. The squash it did have was raw, cold, and hard. I wasn’t expecting the chocolate fondue to have a thick layer of marshmallow fluff on top. That made it a bit gross. The marshmallows for dipping had a powder sugar on top which was also gross.

It was a Sunday at 3pm. Not very busy, with many tables open. Our food took over an hour to come. My daughters chicken came back pink and had to be redone which took 20 more minutes. For what is advertised and what they are charging, it is nothing special and not anything amazing for that price.

As a vegetarian the menu doesn’t have many options. As others have said, skip the entree and get apps and chocolate.

We were seated ordered beverages which we got all the waters and waited about 15 minutes for any other drinks, then placed our food order waited over an hour before the waitress even came back and said our food would still be about 25 minutes, which tells me they never put the order in. Needless to say we left it wasn’t worth being forgotten about.

You go for the experience not the food. Desserts look wonderful so go for that but the food was good but pricey. You pay for the atmosphere. The waiter was one of the worst we have experienced but other servers were on top of it.

I splurged for one of the most expensive things considering the environment. Full rack of ribs. It is just like any other place. Dry. Fatty. Small. Couldn’t even put a fresh layer of Sauce on them. They were served with a layer of hard shell from being so dried out. Don’t expect 5 star. It’s just your basic restaurant.

We had a 7:15 reservation. We were there a little early and we were seated.
Probably the only thing to go right. We were seated and then waited a good 10 minutes until our waitress finally came after telling us 3 times she would be right there. When she finally did come she got our drink order and only got 3 out of 4 drinks right. My son had to patiently wait for the arrival of his fun lemonade. We then proceeded to order our meals. My meal came out, though no one else's for several minutes we waited only for our waitress to come to the table to tell us that was the table next to us food. We then waited another 15+ minutes for our meals to come out which put us being there over an hour.while waiting My husband and I ordered 2 beers. Guess what??? She didn't get either of our beers right after confirming with the bartender. The food was ok and we were all just ready to go so it was hard to really enjoy our meals. Just expected more from a Hershey establishment

I got the shrimp tacos and they were so good! I upgraded to sweet potato fries which were pretty good too. Our waitress was super nice and checked on us frequently. Fun atmosphere and reasonably priced. The milkshakes looked a little pricey so we did not try those but maybe if we go back just for dessert we will do that. They looked amazing!!

We sat for a little over an hour before we even got appetizers. But in terms of value for money, you definitely get what you pay for. And I highly recommend reservations. We put reservations in ahead of time, and walked right in and immediately got seated.

The Chocolatier has such fun and inviting ambiance. It is a nice break from the parks, or a special meal while enjoying the shops at Hershey. Our service was excellent and food was delicious.

We had the best experience at The Chocolatier. Making a reservation through OpenTable was key because the wait for a walk up was two hours long! But with our reservation, we walked right up and were seated immediately at a great table by a window overlooking Chocolate World!

Great food and our server was phenomenal. I would definitely go there again and have already recommended it to others!
