Made my entire trip worth the visit

The place has a very nice, warm atmosphere and the desserts are to die for- Tasting menu was delicious, decent-sized portions, and were very creative; since me and my guest both had the tasting menu with Wine Pairing, we chose different things so we could share each others plates. Nothing was out of place about this experience...by far one of the best restaurant experiences in New York City.
Service by the Chef

ChikaLicious was a complete delight! The service was right on time and overwhelmingly generous. When your amuse comes out served by the chef, you know that you are in for a unique experience. The restaurant is extremely open with no real view blocked. The interesting thing was that the sound level was moderate (jazz) which allowed us to carry on normal conversation. The wine list was well-represented with sparklers which did indeed sparkle. The Sweet Potato Brulee/Egg Nog Ice Cream was absolutely outstanding with intense and succulent flavor. My main course, Brown sugar Panna Cotta with Grapefruit Sorbet, was very light and flavorfully tasty. I will most definitely be eating at ChikaLicious again!

After reading the menu I was really worried - the ingredients sounded wonderful, but they were combined in such a way that I wouldn't normally have chosen any of them. The desserts proved me wrong. Two things stand out: an absolutely airy cheesecake with an incredibly fluffy consistency and the coconut marshmallow...never had anything like its texture. The group's main courses were all awesome. Overall, the desserts were outstanding!

ChikaLicious is our weekly SundayDessert destination. The Cheese Cake is dependably cloud-like, flavorful and deeply satisfying. The other four desserts change every day.My husband (and the kids) invariably order the Warm Chocolate Tart with Pink Peppercorn Ice cream. Fabulous dessert made by people who care about both the food and you. Varied wine list; best seats at the bar.
THIS IS YOUR PLACE

I went to ChikaLiciouson Nov. of 2006 This place is amazing!!! Especially if you are a not-too-sweet dessert and wine lover. If you are in no rush at all, you will have an incredible experience. The service was excellent. The sommelier was very, very, knowledgeable and helpfull. The staff added to the amazing experience. Food was done incredebly well and innovatively. If you would like to enjoy a few moments surrounded by amazing desserts and wine, this IS YOUR PLACE. I will defenitelly be going back. Hopefully very soon.
We will definitely be returning.

When I first saw the menu, I knew we had chosen the right place for our anniversary. All restaurants have dessert, but ChikaLicious offered varied "delectable" options--In three courses, I wanted it all. We shared classics like the Fromage Blanc Island and the Warm Chocolate tart. My wife chose the Sweet Potato Brulee with Egg Nog Ice Cream, and I decided to get the White Chocolate Mousse and Poppy Seed ÃƒÂ‰clair with Lavender Marinated Kiwi. The best I've ever had..amazing! Service was stellar throughout, but It was the little things done for us on this occasion that made our anniversary dinner unforgettable. ChikaLicious didn't miss a beat. Friendly, courteous, attentive but unobtrusive, precise, clean, and organized. Everyone seemed to enjoy making this the best Dessert we have ever had. We will definitely be returning.
FROMAGE BLANC ISLAND

Lovely spot. Obviously, much to offer the scene. Every single dessert I have ever had, at this sumptuous (in every sense of the word) shop has been enough to make my knees buckle in delight. The Fromage Blanc surpasses the "real" french one I had...they have this little thing called "pot de creme" that will virtually change your darling world.
one of a kind place in NYC

This place is really cool for deserts. You can actually see your deserts prepared right in front of you. This really is a one-of-a-kind place.
cool experience - great dessert!

watching our dessert get prepared (and everyone else's) was pretty interesting. the menu was pretty diverse, and our dessert was excellent. a good place to kill some time.
Not good enough if you're a dessert lover
By m_rubio on 3/19/2005
The menu seems to change daily and we tried the banana salad and the poached pear. Both were "form over function", i.e. they were nice to look at, but really not that special. Hopefully the other stuff in the menu is better, but I don't think I will be going back. Very disappointed.
- The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
- If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
- Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
- Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
