Wow. Great service

Never been to a fondue restaurant before and this was great experience. Owner and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and appreciated. Food was good. Not sure if I am a fondue fan but great experience.

I love Cafe Fondue! The food is fantastic and there is a great selection of beer and wines. Every course is amazing. My boyfriend and I go often on dates and with groups of friends. It is perfect for both a romantic date or a night out with friends. The owner is often there and is very attentive and the... More

I have been coming to Cafe Fondue for 15 years. It is, by far, my favorite restaurant. I recently went to a fondue place in the Chicago and was so disappointed. It is amazing how much of a difference there is between Gruyere and cheddar.....oh boy! no comparison. I love the bread (not cut up hamburger buns) and the grapes... More

Great service and delightful atmosphere. The hostesses were gracious and polite. The place was clean and our table was beautifully set. The hostess took time to explain the process of fondue which was very interesting. Cooking your own food in this manner was fun. The food tasted great! Thank you for a wonderful evening. I will definitely visit again. My... More

It's not just a meal but a dining experience. The owner makes your visit personal. The food is great but the chocolate fondue with fruit is the perfect topper.

I'm sad to rate this restaurant so low but neither my wife or I were very impressed. This was our third visit in the last couple of years and I don't think we will ever go back. We love the whole fondue dinning idea but the price to dine here just doesn't match the quality of food or service.

Very unique, beautiful restaurant. Service was excellent, and prompt. Unlike any other fondue restaurant in Chicago, this is an authentic European restaurant. The food was very fresh and dessert was amazing! The owner of the restaurant was very caring to customers. My fiancé and I had a great time here. Can't wait to come back.
