If you're in the mood for fondue, this is the place! Keep in mind that fondue necessarily means that you cook your own food so I don't think the reviews complaining about the high prices given that you have to cook your own food are fair. The wine list is both impressive and extensive allowing you to carefully make a... More

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner there. Ordered the fixed menu ... good food, a great ice breaker for the folks there. Service was "ok"

Delicious four course meal. Come hungry. Meal starts with a cheese fondue selection for the table. Served with bread, apples and veggies. We had the Wisconsin selection and we were very happy with it. Next, each person selects their own salad. I had Caesar and found it to be good. Next... each person selected up to three meats. I loved... More

Server was very nice and informative. Do not go if you are thirsty. Took over 20 minutes to get our first drink. When we ordered some wine with our dinner it arrived when we were almost done. We are two middle aged women, we asked the bartender if he would call a cab. There was no one at the bar... More

Lovely special dinner with my family. The husband and two sons ordered Cesar salad and I ordered their strawberry almond salad for an appetizer. We chose cheddar cheese fondue with bread, apples, an vegetables. Then coq au vin style broth with steak and chicken. Then, for dessert, dark chocolate fondue. We loved the whole meal.

A fondue restaurant. Running from traditional cheese, meat, seafood and vegetables to fruit and sweets chocolate fondue. Good bar service and Sam did a great job as a server. Make a reservation in order not to wait.

Decided to relax and dine here before heading to the airport to fly home... my wife and I arrived when they opened (we were the second folks through the door at 4:00 pm) and found out they were booked solid for dinner due to Sir Paul McCartney performing at Key Bank Arena just a few blocks away. Despite that bit... More

My husband and I love the melting pot and the casual 'take your time' atmosphere. He had some wine, and I had sparkling lemonade that was refreshing. We opted for a special dinner menu they were featuring and had a lot of fun throughout the whole process. As a couple we were seated at a one burner table, while directly... More

We visited here because of my son's rehearsal dinner. Valet parking is not expensive and is quick. If you are in a hurry you don't want to come here simply because you have several courses. You have fondue, cooking oils for the meat, and a dessert course. You do the cooking. It doesn't look like much but it is. A... More

Love the food. Fresh, yummy. Great bartender. Truly a unique dinning experience. Waitress was a little dingy, but she was cute.
