We came here on the spur of the moment on a Friday evening as my nephew said it was wonderful. I had never experienced "fondue dining" before and he said it was worth it. Waited almost 2 hours (wandered around Queen Anne for most of the time) before we got in about 9 PM. Not used to eating so late... More

This is our go-to special occasion/romantic dinner restaurant. It's pretty expensive (at least if you do the four course meal) but totally worth it. I can't even decide which type of fondue I like the most--cheese, broth, and chocolate are all equally amazing. The variety makes it great. You get to try tons of dipping items with all three types... More

We have been to this melting pot location several times - this time was not a very fun experience. Twice employees called my husband "My father" it was kind of embarrassing and annoying after we told them that he was my husband. Also, our server was not friendly at all...he had no personality and only refilled our water when we... More

Oh this was fun! The staff was friendly, fast, and funny! We had reservations and got right in. We had never been there before so the staff explained each option, and as they delivered each course took the time to give some cooking tips. It was wonderful!

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.
