There was a group of 5 of us. We had a reservation for 6:15pm on a Saturday night. We were not seated until almost 7pm.

The hostess gave us a free round of drinks and free dessert. Even with those discounts, we each ended up paying $50 (including tip). We had the cheese, main course and chocolate fondue.....and a second round of drinks.

The server was very nice and walked us through the menu choices. The time between each course was a bit long. But the food was VERY GOOD!!

Beware....the pot stickers don't stay on your skewers very well! ;) But they taste wonderful!

So, if you have a few hours and some extra cash, this is the place to go.

My spouse and I had a meal here on a Thursday evening in March. We walked in the door at 5:41 pm and were promptly seated after being asked if we had a reservation. Very nice wait staff and theme.
We had the standard cheese fondue to start with and each had a Caesar’s salad. We also each had the meat lovers main course $38 each. 1 sangria and two beers with the meal were our drinks. We shared the dessert at the end of the meal. Price was 130 before tip. The cheese fondue was alright, had lots of garlic in it. They brought apple and vegetable slices as well as white and brown breads for the cheese. Our table heater was temperamental and took a long time to heat and maintain the food. We had the wine based broth for our medium to cook our steak with. The filet migon was very good, the teriyaki so-so.

Dessert was the best and should we ever go again, it will only be for that.

We took our son here for part of his 10th birthday celebration - 2 adults, 3 of our children. Impressed when we first walked in (3pm on a Sunday - almost empty). Nicely decorated, good greeting from the hostess, friendly wait staff. It was 6pm when we left - soooo sloooooow. Dinner took over 30 minutes to come out after the salad course was cleared. Some items wrong, and substituted sirloin for the tenderloin ("chef didn't have enough thawed"!!??!!). Dinner was so-so. Appetizer and dessert were good. Kids especially loved the chocolate fondue. The broth for the dinner fondue was extremely salty and the various marinades for the meats didn't match up very well. Several had citrus sauces - completely lost after the fondue. Ingredients were fresh. Good service, but obvious kitchen problems. For a so-so meal, the high price tag and long, long wait between courses, it was just not worth the time or money. Our consensus was "if we ever come back it will be for dessert only." But then, you know how chocolate talks!
