Brizo Bar & Restaurant
This gooey, warm chocolate chip cookie is topped with vanilla ice-cream and served in a cast iron skillet. It's truly the ultimate chocolate-lover's dessert. Ask for extra spoons so everyone at your table can take a bite out of bliss.
The chocolate tower cake is as impressive as the glorious harbor views from The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey's signature waterfront restaurant. Indulge in a slice (or two!) of dark chocolate cake with chocolate frosting filling, loaded cake ice cream and blackberry sauce.
We know the menus at this popular chain restaurant can sometimes overwhelm, but they absolutely deliver when it comes to their sweet spot: cheesecakes! So, we picked this flourless Godiva® Chocolate Cheesecake, topped with chocolate mousse, as one of the best dessert options for choco-holics dining at the Marina del Rey location. Plus, did you know this is quite the popular spot for wedding engagements? Its outdoor deck with beachfront views are truly the cherry on top!
For a delightful dessert with a view, dine at SALT and make room for the pistachio gelato cake with chocolate ganache and a 'Basque' burnt cheesecake with berries. The soft texture with creamy finish combined with the fruit makes this a swoon-worthy dessert.
This sweet gem of an Italian neighborhood restaurant sits inside Fisherman's Village along the water. And one of their desserts worth trying is the "Cuore di Cioccolata" which literally means "Chocolate Heart." This warm chocolate molded cake with melting filling is served with fresh berry sauce and vanilla gelato. Need we say more? Run, don't walk, to try this cake and all of the above delicious chocolate desserts in Marina del Rey.
