Dining experience

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.

We come about once a month and have been doing so for 15 plus years. The experience is wonderful. Our son has been a regular since he was 2 yrs old. Although it is fine dining, children are accommodated quite well. This is the location where you can sit as a family and get reacquainted while enjoying the "fondue experience".... More

I have been visiting Cafe Fondue for almost 15 years and have never been disappointed! This is my favorite place to have dinner whether it is a special occasion or no particular reason at all. I came for dinner last night and it was perfect as usual. The gruyere cheese fondue is my favorite part of the whole dinner. My... More

For a change, I took some customers here to see what it was like. We had a blast. I was fun to cook the food at the table and it made for some great conversation and was an excellent way to break the ice. My clients were impressed and we had a great time. Service was excellent.
