Review from bellevue cookie

The chocolate/wine shoppe is a little off the beaten path in
Newcastle, but once you stop, you will be stopping again.
The pairing was fun and the server was informative without
being stuffy.
There was no pressure to buy. The product was...continued

Review from Leaslater

Five friends joined me for this and we had a great time. Some people liked all the pairings, some didn't, but all agreed it was a fun opportunity to taste and talk with friends. Most of us purchased products after the tasting.

Review from jtcapa

It was very simple as parings go, but the trip was worth it just to enjoy the custom Chocolates made by the sister company. Plus they have great coffee. It is a very cool local hangout.

Cute cafe/restaurant and a great date idea. Overall experience was okay, hard to really taste the 'notes' and 'silkiness' of the wine and chocolates.

The staff at Sweet Decadence were a disappointment. At least the owner was gracious enough to inquire at the end of the evening and give us vouchers for 4 free seatings. I won't be giving them a second shot, but will see if adventurous friends...continued

Review from marilili

It was a great pairing, great wine, great services, great chocolate! The person doing the tasting was very knowledgeable. It just took a bit of time in between the pairings. We were there for a bit over an hour to taste 5 wines/chocolates.

The experience was worth the drive down from Seattle. The host was very informative; the wine and chocolate pairing were excellent. The atmosphere was not as comfortable as I was expecting (concrete floors in the bottom floor of a corporate...continued
