I brought my family here for a birthday dinner. The restaurant is kind of dark so bring your glasses if you use them. The waitress was nice and her service was OK. The prices here surprised me for what the food is. The food arrived and it was ALL heavy and very greasy/oily and without much flavor. I was not... More

Had a great time. Sat at table top in the bar which worked out better probably then main dining. Had great server,Dane. He took us newbies through our first fondue. He made great suggestions. Great personality. Drinks were great. Place can be expensive but it's not something one does all the time.

This is my special event restaurant. I love the flavors and they make a great Martini. it is expensive and sometimes hard to get a table, but I love it every time. I like to go to the bar for a casual drink and treat.

Went here for our anniversary. The area looks to be a cute, newly updated part of downtown Livermore. Upon entering the restaurant appeared to be upscale, but after taking a quick trip to the restroom, was not quite as impressed as when I first entered. ( people, clean the restrooms, and the area outside of them) The waitress was very... More

This warm spot brought back many memories of times past when I enjoyed a nice evening of conversation with friends. It was quiet and the food brought back pleasant memories. All enjoyable!!

So much fun. We were 3 women celebrating a victory and this was just the place to do it. We specifically asked for Dane's section and got it. Dane was the waiter for some friends from a different night, they said we would have a blast in his section. They were right. We started off with a "flight" each which... More

I have been here many times but this last time was disappointing. They changed the menu offerings and got rid of some of my favorite offerings. They also increased the prices and it was already costly. Our waiter was horrible. We got the cheese fondue before the salads, and he was very, very slow. In between the salads and the... More

Two couples shared two fondue pots in the middle of the table (one with broth and the other with oil) to cook our own cubes of beef, pork and shrimp. While the food was good, we got more interested in the cooking and variations (there were more to choose from). There were various sauces to dip them in afterwards too.... More

Went here for our 10th anniversary and made a great choice. The food was plentiful, fresh, and the service was exceptional. We went with the "Fondue Feast" so we could have a little of everything and it was a great choice for an anniversary dinner! The only down side was that we ate too much!
