Delicious crème brulee...can't lose on that one! Also had brownie sundae that was also good. Service fast. Pricing mid-range. Very cozy and comfortable place.

I've been there. I've had a cookie there and I swear in my imagination I saw vampires roaming the territory. They crave blood wine and I was offered some in my mind. But then I looked at the menu and it was just normal sweet wine. Very rare almost a century old. But it couldn't be. Anyways, I'm from Le... More

Stopped here after we had dinner somewhere else and wished we had gone here first. Place is cozy. Desserts were good. Service was very nice. Stuff my puff was more than a dessert, was a conversation item. Money well spent here. Will definitely return.

Good service about 5-10 minute wait and far above average chocolate cake. The strawberry cake there is average, but far to sweet for my taste. Great place to grab dessert after a nice dinner. All together Bittersweet is a great place to grab some dessert after dinner.

The place was packed, and had a really nice neighborhood atmosphere. I had high expectations based on reviews and the gorgeous pictures in the place. We ordered the Belgian Waffle and the Flourless Chocolate Cake. They were both plentiful, though not as delectable as I had hoped for. Granted, I am pretty spoied in the food department.

This is a wonderful little place to head out for dessert and coffee or to meet friends for a light bite to eat and a few glasses of wine. The staff is friendly and happy to make a recommendation. Located in the heart of Syracuse, close to other dining and bars. It's a great way to start or finish an... More
