Such a delicious dining experience and terrific way to celebrate an important event. We went all out and ordered all four courses - it was very tasty and quite a lot of rich food. We appreciated the inviting ambiance of the restaurant and terrific service. I especially enjoyed how tasty the spinach salad, grilled chicken, and chocolate fondue called The... More

My family are semi-regulars. The restaurant recently changed ownership. So far the new owners have not disrupted the success of the established menu. The place has a lot of mood lighting, so you may need the light of your cell phone to read the menu. Our favorite dishes: We love the chef salad with sweet/sour blue cheese dressing. Our favorite...

We went here for my daughter's 22nd birthday at her request and she and my 25 year old son loved it. I however and my boyfriend were not impressed. I guess it's just a matter of individual taste.

Excellent cheese and fresh meat and seafood to grill at the table made for a great dining experience. The chocolate was excellent too as was the friendly service. The venison deserves a special mention. However, as pointed out by others, the place is too pricey.

As eurotrash I am not foreign to the concept of fondue. If you swear by tradition and not into a modern version of an old world classic...this is not for you. The fare is on the upper side of price spectrum as others have suggested in their reviews, however the service and offerings are in line with the ask. The... More

First, we knew it would be expensive, and it was. But I don't mind paying if there is some value to the meal. The first problem was that the menu was very confusing. We went with the 4 course dinner ($108 to supposedly feed 2) which included a cheese fondue, a salad, a large selection of proteins for the main... More

My spouse and I were introduced to La Fondue by another couple who had frequented there some time back and had enjoyed the experience. Shared a spinach salad for starters because we were told they would plenty of food to enjoy. We ordered the Four Cheese and Truffle (portobello, crimini, shitake) fondue. I'm a mushroom guy and found the Truffle... More

Came here on a Sunday evening for dinner. Ordered the "wild thing," which included cheese fondue, meat entree, and chocolate fondue. Cheese fondue: four cheese, assortment of vegetables and fruits, and bread. The cheese fondue was a bit winy for my taste, as it added Chardonnay. Meat entree: alligator, antelope, buffalo, elk, venison, wild boar, and kangaroo. Grilled at the... More

We visited on New Year's Eve to have a special night and they delivered. We chose the special Prix Fixe menu and it was complete and completely decadent. Yes, it was pricey, but it was over the top. They started off with salad and then melted a custom cheese fondue right at the table. They served a variety of items... More
