Not as expected - in many ways

The service was polite and smiling, but: 1) the fondue portions were really very small (you needed only 2-3 pieces of dippings to finish all your cheese or chocolate fondue), 2) the dippings were mostly cut or served in large pieces and the fondue bowl was too small (if dipping just the edge of a... read more

I purchased a coupon on Living social late last year and finally got around to using it today just before it expired (I think that it was actually extended for me a couple of times without even asking). We had the chocolate fondue for two and it was plenty of food (banana, pineapple, strawberries, grapes and Granny Smith Apple along... More

we had afternoon tea this week. The food was bland and dry. We were not offered anything with the scones, just dry scones. The tea was good as was the coffee. I do mot feel the food in this store is worth serving to people looking forward to afternoon tea. We will not return

My husband and I came here because we love fondue, we wanted to try this new restaurant and we found a Teambuy deal. I was surprised they don't take phone reservations but when I reserved online I wrote a note that I have a Teambuy/Dealfind/nCrowd coupon. nCrowd took over Dealfind who took over Teambuy. nCrowd has honoured both coupons companies....

We ordered one chocolate fondue and one savoury cheese fondue for 4 people to share. These were served with assorted bread, fruits, veggies and ice-cream balls. Portion was perfect (I don't like to waste food). Prices are reasonable and you can even get a sweet bargain from Groupon. Remember to read the fine prints on how to redeem. Will come... More

Capstone Tea & Fondue was just a short walk from our hotel, so we figured we'd give it a try. The atmosphere and environment are very modern, clean and inviting - we would've sat down, but were in a rush so got our drinks to go. We ordered: House Green Sparkling Fruit Iced Tea Roobios Vanilla Latte The servers were... More

We went to Capstone Tea with Groupon in hand. My biggest disappointment was that an ordinary cup of Earl Grey Tea was not bottomless! Mid-way through the platter of goodies the server asked us if we'd like more tea and of course we said yes. Later, when I paid the bill I saw that we were charged $4.45 each for... More

Service was very attentive even though almost all the tables were full. We were a large table and had a reservation and our table was reserved which was nice that they were ready for us. We had tea for 4 and 2 cheese fondues. I don't know what all the complaints are on the size of the pot of cheese... More

The "tea" in the afternoon tea took a back seat! They have house black, roiboos and green tea blends and when I asked what type of teas were in them, the waitress could not answer. For an establishment that sells tea (like Teavana or David's Tea), the selection was very, very small. The savouries were actually quite good but the... More

I purchased a "deal" on living social for $28.00. Made a reservation for 1:00, arriving there a few minutes early and they did not open the doors until 1:00. Fortunately we were able to sit in the lobby of the hotel next door to wait as it was sprinkling with rain. We were seated right away, but had to move... More
