We didn't actually go for the famous hit chocolate although I think people seem to go just for dessert. I had a delicious burger and my friend had the soul, it was all very lovely and staff were friendly with a good atmosphere.

We came here on recommendation from a friend, who typically has good recommendations. Not this one. We came here for dessert on a Friday night and had to wait 15 min to be seated. The ambiance is wonderful; the dining area is dimly lit and has a romantic feel. Unfortunately, their dessert was not good. We shared the chess pie... More

We came here for dinner with my brother in law and his wife, at their recommendation. It did not disappoint. From the burgers, to the spicy hot chocolate, everything we tried we enjoyed. It was like upscale comfort food, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was laid back, but not overly casual. The service was great. Definitely a great dinner,... More

I've been to this place several times and I love it. Its great to go just to sit at the bar and get a beer or a spritzer, for brunch or for a birthday or family dinner. I have tried them all. I obviously recommend the burger, the big pancake and of course the hot chocolate. Accommodation can be a... More

I tried the hot chocolate from Mindy's at Revival Food Hall. It was some of the best I've ever had, and I'm a bit of a hot chocolate snob. Perfect for a cold, windy walk to work. The hot fudge donut was delicious too!!

Over the years, I heard people rave about Mindy's Hot Chocolate and finally decided to see what all the hype was about. Well let me tell you..now I finally get it! The hot chocolate is beyond scrumptious and the homemade marshmallows complete the world's most perfect cup of hot chocolate! The entrees are also divine! I had a pepper and... More

Old-Fashioned Hot Chocolate was incredible! Tasted like a candy bar in a cup!! Homemade marshmallow and ganache were sooo good in the hot chocolate mix. Pricey for hot chocolate ($7-10/cup), but totally worth it for the amazing treat! Sampled one of their cookies--unique lemon & salty taste. Not bad. My fiancé had the Mexican Hot Chocolate. He said it was... More

Great food and wonderful hot chocolate! We shared a great beet salad and the scrambled egg with duck. Both were excellent. They do a great twist on boiled potatoes. Smashed and then crisped over a flame. Do save room for the hot chocolate.

One of my favorite places in Chicago to date!!! You obviously have to get the hot chocolate with their homemade marshmallows. But the food is also very inventive and Devine.

This is a favorite of mine when in the Chicago area- we had lunch this time- the food is always amazing, fresh and flavorful. This time I had the market salad with shrimp- I highly recommend it! The medium hot chocolate is the perfect blend of milk and dark chocolate- the staff is cordial and friendly--

Thank R S
