We ate there last Friday and had a blast exploring different Savoyard cooking dishes. My wife and daughter shared the most delicious fondue I've ever tasted, while my son and I enjoyed grilling meats on a hot stone in the pierre chaud style.

Had a lovely dinner here with great, friendly service. Ordered "La Doublette"--really fun! You cook your own steak on a tabletop charcoal grill, melt your own cheese on the underside, and it's fantastic!

I had injured myself the day before on a descent in Italy and was wearing a knee brace and walking with a limp (probably shouldn't have been out to begin... More

Booking was made by a local rep, and huge outside seating area we were given had moving shade and overhead gas heater and looked very nice. Even though it was late June, heating was welcome in the evening, but the... More

When we arrived at the restaurant at around 9pm, we politely asked if they could seat a party of 9. Before asking, we had observed that there were a lot of empty tables, both outside and inside. The host rudely replied, "No." When we asked if we could wait, he responded, "We will not serve you." No explanation. We then... More
