Chocolates that are as tasty as they are pretty, indulging in a box of Compartes is worth every penny! Not only are the chocolate truffles made of unique ingredients/flavor profiles and have edible art inked onto them, but they really melt in your mouth. And Grahm's just realized his 24 signature chocolate bars that are worth totally splurging over!

Some of the most stunning chocolates you'll ever lay your eyes on.

Jonathan Grahm, CEO and Chocolatier, Compartes Chocolatier, made Zagat's 30 Under 30 list this year, and it's easy to see why. This dynamo makes some of the most unique (and delicious) truffles in town.

Honey - peanut butter - sea salt and mango truffles are some favorites. New line of bars make great gifts.

I'm half Belgian, so I'm picky with my chocolate. These made the cut. They come in exotic flavor combos that seem to hit the spot. Worth every calorie.

Excellent chocolates worth the price. My favorite part is that they have a good selection of white chocolates which I prefer. They are decadent and priced for a special treat, but I really like them and they make a good gift.

A Perfect Treat – Not only are the chocolates decadent and creatively flavored, the designs are intriguing and fun.

You must try the blackberry & sage as well as the Macellan scotch truffle.

Those are my two favorites, but it was hard to narrow down. The kid in me always gets two chocolate covered oreos as well.

Exquisite Chocolates – Im a chocoholic and this place is the perfect fix! Every visit I find myself overwhelmed, but in a good way. I originally checked out the store because I heard they have a Guinness Stout Truffle. This is delicious!!! I'm also a huge fan of the sake truffle. But the best has got to be the honey, peanut butter and sea salt truffle. AMAZING!! What's even better is that the owner, Jonathan, is a sweetheart and makes your shopping experience a delight....Oh yeah, and the gingerbread cookie chocolate bar combines my two favorite flavors so that's a must as well. Both the truffles and the bars make excellent gifts.

Brentwood chocolatier serves creative handmade truffles. – More than 50 years ago, Compartes hand-dipped its first small batch of dried fruit. Today, it ships its homemade chocolate truffles and citrusy treats worldwide. Young Jonathan Grahm recently took over the family biz and expanded the dried-fruit-and-chocolate focus with 45 new truffles including exotic jalapeno and jasmine flavors. The fan favorite signature treat is arguable, given the new flavors Grahm and his staff are continuously cooking up, but the smoked sea salt, a truffle of intense sweet-savory goodness, is perhaps their most-sold of the bunch. Customers may find it hard to select from the plentiful old-school dried fruits anymore as they sit beside the shop's new breed of artful truffles, many decorated with vibrant icons (skulls, anchors, elephants, diamonds), plaid patterns and stripes. What's a chocolate lover to do?

Best Chocolates in LA! – Tucked away off the main drag of San Vicente Blvd in Brentwood, you may drive past this hidden gem on Barrington Avenue many times and not even notice its there, but one day, stuck in traffic, I saw the blue walls and crystal chandelier and the words "Chocolatier" beckoned me inside. When I walked in, I found a store that rivaled the great chocolate stores of Paris and Europe. Museum like displays featuring beautiful chocolates paired with exotic ingredients. Pristine chocolates flaked in gold leaf, hand-painted with glitter, decked out in mod funky prints and topped with candied spices, I felt like I died and went to chocolate-heaven.

The chocolates here are so beautiful and artistic, the wow-factor alone makes this place worth a visit, but then you get to bite into them --- deep dark chocolate ganache centers in unusual and exotic flavor combinations that not only work, but rock --- chocolates like blackberry and sage, peach and rosemary, lemongrass, jasmine tea, smoked salt, raspberry ganache studded with pink peppercorns, the list can go on and on. Everything I have had here is exceptionally great! The chocolate dipped orange peels are sinful, the love nuts are divine and my absolute favorite, the cup of coffee, is the perfect blend of chocolate and coffee I have never found elsewhere. Compartes Chocolatier is my go-to place for gifts for others and of course for myself. The ornate gem-like chocolates and flavors make the best impression possible, if you have anyone special or any special event and you need a treat, look no further than the best chocolate store in LA. Do yourself a favor and stop by, check it out, smell the aroma of chocolate and get sucked in like I did, you may never eat chocolate elsewhere again!

don't order online – Although the chocolate might be good their customer service is lacking. I placed an order online and paid $14 for 3 day shipping. When the chocolates didn't arrive after five days I was told it couldn't be tracked because they use USPS and that a manager would call me back. No one called me back to explain the delay or apologize. It finally arrived seven days after I placed the order.

Eat here and die happy... – Nuanced flavor with sophisticated notes (think lavender violet caramel, or strawberry balsamic vinegar) gilded in rich layers of ganache...these are the truffles at compartes. Each chocolate is like its own little work of art (literally...the passion fruit truffle seems to mimic a pollack painting), and though some flavors may seem to be for the culinarily adventurous, every bite pleases even the shiest palate. Aside from the wonderful truffles, delectable dipped fruits, and variety of other chocolate treats, the service alone is a reason to stop by this Brentwood hotspot (I've spotted Harrison Ford and a few Desperate Housewives buying boxes there). Jonathan Grahm, the owner of Compartes, is always behind the counter, ready to give a suggestion or explain why his truffles are true truffles (as opposed to the sugarery stuff See's tries to pass off under the same name). Also, seasonal hot chocolate, which is as thick and luscious as what you'll find across the Atlantic, is a great afternoon treat to keep you going on a cold day, though, I'd drink it in the middle of summer if he had it. All in all, there are not enough good things I can say about this place. The best chocolate I've ever had, bar none.

Best Chocolate this side of Switzerland – My wife and I love Comparte's. Whenever we're passing by we always stop in for an Almond Turtle. That's just the tip of the chocolate iceberg(if you asked nice - they'd probably make you one). Their chocolate covered Oreos are sensational, both dark and milk chocolate, the same goes for the graham chrackers. The S'mores, pretzels and almond bark are incredible as well. I get confused going in there, because it's all so good.

We also love to give Compartes as gifts to people, having us over for dinner gifts, thank you's and Anniversaries. People love it. Don't forget the choco;at covered matza (Did I spell that right) at Passover.

They also go all out to make every holiday special - in a chocolate way of course.

After having their chocolate it's hard to eat any other kind.

Hope you enjoy it as much as my wife and I do.

Simply the most astounding chocolate shop! – I am a chocoholic. I have visited numerous chocolate shops around the country, and needless to say this is the best one I have ever been to. The pieces of chocolate should be displayed in a museum because they are small pieces of God-inspired art work. However, the museum should have excellent security because burglars would want to steal these impeccable chocolates. Los Angeles should feel blessed to have the most astounding chocolate shop in the country.
