This swanky little eatery is one of the most popular hangouts for a casual meet or a dessert date. Desserts are a source of endless creativity for the innovative chefs - it isn't often you'll get to try a warm chocolate tart with pink peppercorn ice-cream and red wine sauce. If you're not a chocaholic, there are plenty of other options, including spiced pound cake with a dollop of cream. ChikaLicious is not for calorie counters but for some highly original sweet indulgence, it's well worth a stop.

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.

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, especially for romantic occasions. The sorbet here is amazing.

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. 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! I always go here and I must always come back. Love you ChikaLicious

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 fun if you go without a big group, but that's just me!

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 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. 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 the desserts were great, not too sweet and interesting flavors

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.

Like Heaven on Earth – I've driven pass this place on several occasions as I use to reside in the neighborhood. For some reason I always thought it was a sushi restaurant. I might have though this because of the nondescript glass plating which?s conceals a very white interior. I could also make out what appeared to be a sushi bar. I was wrong. After reading a posting on BOC I decided to check it out. I was left in utter euphoria. This was a dining experience. The deserts were spectacular. The different textures and flavors melted in my mouth. I wasn't very daring... I just tried the cheese cake (which was no ordinary cheese cake, it was as smooth as butter). Yes, the wait was long and well worth it. The seating area is very small. The host is gracious and beyond polite. And to the individual who posted s/he felt the service was rushed because s/he was not allowed to order a second cup of coffee. Heaven is meant to be shared... If you wanted to lounge check out Dunkin Doughnuts or Starbucks
