We love fondue, so this should be a slam dunk - but there are caveats. - Between the multiple courses and the time involved in each one, this meal can easily stretch out to more than 2 hours! - The pricing reinforces the 'special occasion' impression - hard to justify on a regular basis. On the other hand, the quality... More

Our family's most favorite place. Great Cajun cheese fondue and excellent service. We have been going to this place since the day it opened.

We went here for a special occasion, but it was a disappointment. First of all, the decor is quite funky. It's not your traditional fancy restaurant. Obviously, they do that on purpose, and they undoubtedly think it adds to the experience. Honestly, I might have liked the decor in a less expensive restaurant, but if I'm paying top Dollar for...

I suggest making reservations in advance in order to have the day and time of your desire. If you plan to do the combination dinner (4 course) it will take a minimum of 2 hours. We went to celebrate our anniversary and we were there for almost 2 hours but it was so worth it. Tha Staff - from the... More

If you do not like playing with your food, DO NOT GO HERE, however if you enjoy great flavours, and a lot of fun, this is the place to go. It is a fantastic and unique dining experience. A word to the wise... Do not finish your salad, as that is a serious rookie move 😉. There is a LOT... More

Ordered a combination which was 4 courses - cheese, salad, meat and chocolate fondue. The cheese fondue was fun but the novelty wore off quickly. The salad was good but some did not enjoy the fact that it came deconstructed. Since the 2 heaping piles of feta was too much for me, I was thankful. The meat course was annoying... More

This is first time for us. I brought my wife and my elementary classmate. It is a nice environment in middle of Saratoga downtown. Romantic. We ordered La Freak meal with exotic meats. Everything is fine. We enjoyed it a lot.

Three of us shared Le Freak and it was fabulous. We had a Living Social coupon but they didn't skimp on anything or treat us differently because of the coupon. The food and the service were really great. We went to celebrate a special occasion and everything about the experience made it a perfect celebration.

We've been here three time and it is truly an eclectic experience. We took on the "taste of everything" menu. Starting with a cheese fondue, then on to salads (the salads are very good and I recommend asking to have them "to go" so you can make it to dessert). If you make it through the meat course, the best... More

We bought a Living Social coupon for the dinner combo that comes with EVERYTHING. When we walked in, I asked the host where the toilet was. He pointed me to a hallway that was completely pitch black. I told him I couldn't see so he directed me, rather than just turning on a light. The music was a bit loud... More
