This classic fondue place offers individually isolated seating. Service is spectacular and fun of fondue creations/sauces makes for a truly romantic evening. A great place for a special night out with any one.

We normally visit the Gatlinburg location, which we love, but decided to have dinner in Knoxville while staying downtown. There is a night and day difference between the two. The service was painfully slow, the restaurant needs to be cleaned and to top it off...More

We purchased a Groupon for this dinner. We would not recommend buying it. Not a bargain! 1. They required us to select our dinner from a set, limited menu. 2. Food was just ordinary. We were expecting above average for the high prices. Meat cuts...More
