We went for a special date night. We expected to be well-cared for and even have the manager come around to check on us. The service was horrible! We thought we’d never go back. Then we tasted the food!! We’ll-done, Chef. When we left, we found out that they were short two servers and the manager was covering the bar. We totally understood why the service was so bad. We’ve decided to give them another try.

This is my third time dining at The Conche, but the first time for dinner. My first lunch experience was almost perfect. The second time, even though there were few diners, the service was somewhat sketchy. This time, the service was downright...mediocre. Wrong beverages, long waits. The service was somewhat improved by being pleasant and well intentioned. The food was delicious, although the prices are a little high. The presentation is stellar. LOVE the spicy chocolate sauces served with a variety of menu items. Altogether, I like The Conche and will try again, hoping for better.

This was my second time. First time was with a friend and this time was with my husband. Front the moment we enter the restaurant until we left our service was nothing but suburb. Our food was perfect temperatures and time between was closely monitored. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about everything. Thank you everyone from the Conche for another wonderful experience.

This was my first visit. I came with a friend for brunch. The food was amazing. I had the breakfast flatbread. It was perfectly portioned and came with a salad and fruit. Everything was masterfully prepared and tasted delicious.

If you aren't a foodie, the menu will likely be lost on you. Go for one of the signature chocolate drinks or one of the desserts. You won't be disappointed. For the foodies: I had the short ribs which fell apart like it was supposed to in a savory pan gravy with mashed taters and crisps of brussel sprouts. My fav quote from Kitchen Arena is "it tastes like rainbows in my mouth" and that about sums up this date night dinner with my hubby. We shared a flight of drinks (recommend The Conche take on the Old Fashioned) and the Soot & Rye complete with the smoked apple wood! Our waiter Richard was AAAAHHH -MAZE-ING and helped me out with a salad off menu because I am lactose intolerant. We finished dinner with selected chocolates, the mango sorbet and the Guanaja. My hubbie is a chocoholic and loved the dessert. The Conche will leave you wanting to lick your plates. You'll be looking around to make sure you don't make too much of a show in public! Can't recommend this place enough. Just be willing to pay for the experience.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely, leisurely evening. We started with the calamari - I couldn't taste the chocolate but maybe that's because we had the cocktail flight of Temptation, Conche Old Fashion, Moussetache to start. Some very unusual and sweet cocktails! Our waiter didn't ask us if we wanted anything else to drink which might be my only complaint - he was excellent otherwise. My husband had the harissa half-chicken - more like a paprika chicken - very tasty, crispy (takes an additional couple of minutes) but not at all spicy. It was a big plate and I snuck a couple of pieces. I had the special - an asparagus risotto with goat cheese. We shared the Opalys dessert (a sticky toffee pudding) and the ginger salted caramel ice cream was a standout. They actually encourage you to go to the window of the chocolate/pastry prep area to watch the desserts being made. We would return! Noisy as it is small and we were close to the kitchen window (lots of dish noise).

First time patron, will definitely return! “Noise level” rating came from loud server a few booths over, but I may have been just sensitive to his booming voice, which throws me off from the dimmed lighting cozy decor ambience of the booth seating.

Using an interesting notion that really good chocolate can enhance practically any food, our Conche lunch was remarkable for the burger that included short rib meat and a sauce with chocolate. Delicious. Knowledgeable staff and creative foods make for a terrific dining experience.

Took my husband to Conche for a surprise birthday dinner. Food choices were great and taste good as well. We had the ravioli and ground lamb flatbread. We had the Conch Entremet for dessert. It was delicious. We will go there again.
Great place for a special occasion.

Unique cuisine in a very casual setting. A little overpriced in my opinion, but fine for a night out with the wife. The dining area is a little cramped, and the windows into the kitchen can really only be enjoyed by the folks who have the booths right outside. Wait staff was attentive, educated and friendly. I got the cocoa rubbed New York strip -- I loved it. My wife was a little more ambitious and went for the bone-in ribeye. her steak was not as flavorful as mine, and was a little overwhelmed by the seasoning. Potato puree was good. Desserts are out of this world -- which you would expect. I got the Jivara, and it was perfect. Such a great mix of tart and sweet. Not too small, as was my fear. French press coffee added the perfect touch. My wife got the Guanaja (chocolate layer cake) and she enjoyed it. We got the little flight of chocolate cocktails just for fun -- and it was fine -- nothing amazing. All in all I would say it's a great option if you want to go a step up from a moderately-priced chain restaurant without traveling too far or having to get a reservation a month in advance. It will definitely become part of our "date night getaway from the kids" rotation.
