Took my dad here for Father's Day, We thoroughly enjoyed it. The Caramel Cognac Fondue was amazing. I enjoyed the steak and lobster fondue entree. The Mojotini was also amazing.

We decided to give this place a try and were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable and quickly made great food and drink recommendations. You can enjoy a cozy dinner while watching and mingling with all that Portland has to offer. You can walk around and take in the neighborhood before or after your meal. Drinks were... More

I brought my family here with a Groupon I had purchased for $78. The location is Northwest Portland, where there is a lot of foot traffic. Parking on the street is very scarce, and if you park in the Trader Joe's parking lot, be prepared for an $80 parking ticket. The Mait're De informed me of this. The meal, and... More

DH and I went here last night on a Groupon. We've had mixed success with Groupon - some companies deliver as promised and some treat you like a second class customer - they honor it, but bad seating, etc. Not so with Urban Fondue. The host greeted us and after a very short (3 minutes) wait seated us in a... More

This was the perfect place for a nicer extended family meal. The fondue and suggestions are amazing. Definitely go on an empty stomach - even sharing with couples you'll fill up. Leave room for dessert! The staff is friendly and full of great suggestions. They even allowed us to move tables, because the booth was too low for my father... More

The dinner I had here was amazing! There were three courses of fondue including a cheese appetizer fondue, a fondue for dipping a variety of meats, and an amazing dessert fondue. There were so many fondue options that looked delicious, it took us a while to order. Urban Fondue is a little on the expensive side, but it's great for... More

We went here to celebrate a birthday. I had been to another Urban Fondue once before and my only remembrance was that it was expensive. We were pleased with our meal and service. If you haven't been before the menu looks daunting, not so much the length but how you should order it. It helps if your server is really... More

We love this restaurant. The cheese fondues are delicious; especially the white cheddar caraway. We like the fact they use broths instead of oils for the entrees. The desserts are scrumptious. Our two favorites are Caramel Cognac and Tiramisu. The servers are very attentive and very helpful on your first visit.
