I LOVE their chocolate, but every time I go I prepare myself for bad customer services. I don't know it's because they are famous, so they don't care or they just couldn't find some decent sales? Oh well, I guess if I want to continue enjoy their chocolate, I will just have to put up with that.

I thought this place was pretty good, but Im still loyal to the best chocolate hot spot in the city, Chocolate Bar. Its the best chocolate I've ever had and their new location in the West Village is unbelievable... must try!

Jacques Torres is equally comfortable creating 5-star desserts and covering cornflakes with chocolate -- what's not to like? The shop itself is cute and cozy, and you can look through a window at the chocolates being manufactured next door. My "wicked" spicy hot chocolate had a few lumps, but nothing a brisk stir couldn't fix. I just hope they don't have to post calorie counts.

This place is Heaven in Brooklyn. The exquisite chocolates are also great to look at. And when all you want is a piece of chocolate or a crosisant with coffee, this place is hard to beat. Then, the cobblestone streets and the old brick of the warehouse across the street really add to the overall "ambience" of the site. I love to bring my kids for an afternoon treat after shopping at Pomme, Half Pint or Powerhouse Books.

Try the simple chocolate-covered nuts. These make great take-home treats to offer to visitors or are great just to snack on.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Who could find a con with this chocolate! Oh! Long lines sometimes!

I like this place even the cobble street it happens to be on. Hot chocolate is a must try but so are all the varieties of chocolate. My mom loves it! The kids love it! Chocoholics rejoice!

The dark chocolate bars are creamy and smooth and worth the price. Try the wicked hot chocolate, which is made with ancho chile peppers and provides a nice warm zing. In the summer, try the frozen hot chocolate. There is a small seating area in the shop, and it does get crowded during the holidays and Valentine's Day.

PROS: excellent chocolate
CONS: can get crowded

I think I'm the only person who hates the hot chocolate here - so thick, it's like a meal in itself. I go for the unique truffle selection. My favorite is the "love bug" - white chocolate with a key lime center, and also the "Chai tea." They have about 30 different ones to choose from, in white, dark, & milk chocolate, and new flavors are introduced often. Other yummy treats include chocolate-covered cheerios. And across the street is a wonderful French bakery not to be missed called Almondine.

I have probably tried most if not all the hot chocolate places in the city and this is my favorite. It's rich and delicious!

I went looking for vanilla creme chocolates...or coconut cream which were both a no go---they have a non-traditional selection of chocolates, which can be great for non-traditional chocolate lovers...but if you are looking for your favs, this is not the place to go...on the brigth side I did have one of the best chocolate crossaints I have ever tasted.....

went in with some friends, had a great time. . the place was slamming busy, but the staff seemed to have it pretty much under control. The desserts were a little odd, but fun, not your run of the mill fare. i'll be back.

Pros: food, service

Food TV's chocolate chef Jacques Torres' original shop located in DUMBO is well worth the trip. They sell chocolates as well as have a mini cafe where they serve hot chocolate. The spicy hot chocolate is fantastic. You can also buy the same in powder form. The chocolates themselves are great. From various nuts dipped in fine rich chocolate to truffles and squares. Delicious from wall to wall!

PROS: Great chocolate
CONS: Pricey

If I were a kid in a candy store, this would be the candy store of my choice. There are at least 30-40 different types of chocolate sold in this place. Who knew that many existed? The reason is because they manufacture a lot of their own chocolate creations. Everything tastes good and it's also fun to watch the chocolate being made and ride along the conveyor belts. Kids as well as adults would definitely be amused by it.

Jacques Torres is simply the best. The chocolate is simply to die for. You can see through the store window how the chocolate is made. He also teaches classes on how to make chocolate and sometimes gives away free samples of chocolate in the store. You definitely have to try their hot chocolate. That's a lot of chocolate. I need to lie down now. Sugar rush. Chocolate!

This place is heaven. Go here! Went here with a couple of friends after walking the bridge and it was a terrific treat. The chocolates are fresh... you can see through the glass where they make them. There are many flavors to choose from. We got 8 different flavors and took a bite of each one while sitting on a bench outside the store. They were delicious! The chocolates go well with a hot cup of coffee.

Jacques Torres has two shops in New York and this is about the one in DUMBO in Brooklyn. The chocolate of course is out of this world, they don't cal him Mr. Chocolate for nothing. The store although not as large and entertaining as his Manhattan shop/factory is nice and homey and carries all of his signature creations. The service is excellent and the chocolate is great. The only way it could get better is if they figured out a way for people to sit and eat what they've purchased.

PROS: great chocolate
CONS: needs seating

You can't go wrong indulging your sweet tooth at this world-famous Dumbo chocolatier. In the wintertime, as you stroll around the Brooklyn waterfront, you are advised to stop here for a hallucinegenically good cup of hot chocolate - guaranteed to transcend any you've had before. Just about anything in the store makes a great gift, if you can manage not to eat whatever you purchase first.

It's pricey, but wonderful. Chocolates the size of a silver dollar, and the thickness of three for nearly a dollar apiece, but so, so good. Worth the occasional indulgence. The person behind the counter was also very helpful in describing some of the weirder creations to us in advance.

This place has the best chocolate I have ever tasted! I have bought these chocolates for family and friends and they love them. They sell boxes of assorted chocolates you choose. My favorite is one called wicked. They also have the wicked hot chocolate that is the best! The crossiants are great, chocolate dipped fruits nuts, cornflake--they do it all. I tell all my friends about this place becuase it's definitely worth the trip. Its on Water Street behind Grimaldis in Bklyn, so you can you there for L/D and Jacque Torres for dessert!

Jacques Torres is the grand master of all things chocolate, and a trip to this little gem of a store will have all chocoholics rejoicing. Another bonus, he makes the best croissants outside of Paris.
