Success! Thanks for posting your review of Chikalicious Dessert Bar. You’ve done the world some good today.

It's good but. pricey

For $16, you get an amuse (appetizer), choice of ""entree"" and finish with petits fours. You can see a lot of care went into the preparation but you be the judge if it's worth the price. Don and Chika Tillman, owners of the place, worked behind the counter alongside their employees. The flavors were amazing but the price is a bit steep. I was also disappointed in how tiny the portions were.

Out of this world dessert

Eating here is really a multi palette-orgasmic experience. From the sweet service (I always sit at the bar) to the sugary dewdrops of heaven, you can die happy. \r The menu changes seasonally, but the cheesecake is simply light and amazing. The ice creams are fabulous. The little cookies are a delight. Combine all that with some sweet dessert wine or a nice pot of tea and you'll be curling your toes in no time!

Art of Dessert

The dessert Bar never seems to have experienced recession. There is almost always a line, rain or shine. The place has a very modern and clean design. The owner/pastry chef is a Japanese lady who is known for her precision and focus at work. It is very entertaining to watch her prepare your desserts. It is usually a set of desserts paired with dessert wine. The price tag comes at over $20 but it is worth it, espec... view more

not my thing

Not that the desserts were bad, but I didn't like them any better than desserts from fine-dining restaurants that do not particularly specialize in desserts.

Perfect Desserts

Wonderful, wonderful, divine.\r I have to recommend, well everything. The homemade cheese Cake were to DIE FOR. The trifle is better than anything you have ever had before. The candies and tarts, oh my! \r I always go here and I must always come back. Love you ChikaLicious\r

Nice portions, great staff, get there early!

I went after work on a Thursday and I was worried I'd have to put my name down and wait a while to be seated but it actually turned out better going right after work (before the after-dinner crowd)...The dessert is delicious and if you have a choice, sit at the bar! It's always hard for me to choose what to get because everything always sounds good. Perfect for a date or if you're going with a friend. I find it more ... view more

Great dessert date spot

For a dessert date, you can't do better than this spot -- cozy and cute, with beautifully presented offerings. Be prepared for a long wait, or even to get turned away -- lines go down the block. And fair warning: Don't expect to stuff your face here like you would at Baskin-Robbins or another dessert chain -- this is strictly a tasting bar. Chika is in it for the art, not the heartburn.

Great small dessert fix EVER!

I absolutely love, love, this place. It looks swanky and the hosts are the sweetest, kindest people. The small space makes it intimate and neighborly. Portions are small, but sometimes that's all I want. If you're looking for giant dessert portions, you shouldn't come here or you'll be disappointed. Fair warning. Super-sized desserts make me feel gluttonous, but this place are just right and rich enough to satisfy t... view more

great service, interesting desserts

i went here last night and it was really a great experience. The line wasn't too long, only 10-15 minutes? the sign outside posted that there can be a 20-60 minute wait.\r my friend and i sat at the bar and got the prix fixe which i thought was a good deal. for the first time, i suggest sitting at the bar so you can see them make the desserts, it's really interesting and intricate\r the desserts were great, not too... view more

Dessert Paradise!

I must admit that I have a sweet tooth and anything with sugar will get high ratings from me. But, this place is out of this world. You haven't had dessert until you've tried Chikalicious. I won't go into details because each item is different. The service is great and I can understand why they won't take reservations. I hope they expand someday. They can definitely double the size without sacrificing the quality.
