Put this on your list of places to go for that very special occasion. We went to celebrate my son's high school graduation. First thing to know, this is not an in-n-out joint. The meal is served at a leisurely pace, and can take 3 hours start to finish. If you get the "meal", it comes with a big salad... More

One of our favorite splurge restaurants with diverse choices including alligator, buffalo, and kangaroo meats. Romantic ambience, interesting art. Waiting staff is very polite. We enjoyed the meats which we chose to grill. There are other types of cooking options too ( broth, wine etc.) Hint: For the best bang for your buck, choose the combination meals, and not a... More

We had the La Freak to try everything since it was our first time. I loved that there were such well mannered kids enjoying dinner with their families. The service was awesome and the place is pretty casual but if you want to dress-up a little more no worries. You will fit in just fine. If you liked a certain... More

The fondue is as creative and delicious as the decor. We went there June 13 to celebrate a family birthday. I had cheese, seafood and, of course, chocolate fondue.

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
