This was our second fondue experience. We had cheese fondue and main course - no dessert as we were stuffed. Both items were very good, nicely presented, and we enjoyed the rice that came as a side, as well as the variety of dipping sauces. However, it felt as if we were eating with the family at the next table as we were very close and could easily hear their entire conversation, as they could ours, I'm sure. Also, the ventilation needs to be improved so that the steam from the simmering fondue pots does not CONSTANTLY waft right into everyone's faces. This was a definite bummer, especially since there seemed to be no hurry to serve the food. We had a hard time getting past this. The server was friendly and nice, although in no hurry. So, the food gets 4 starts but I took it down to 3 on account of the atmosphere. (It is BYOB which I am so glad we did, since there are NO FREE REFILLS on soda.)

The staff members did their best helping us setup the menu. Most of us it was a first time for fondue. Price was not bad 35 per person if we did the prefix. We did come out pretty full. Since some people did eat much. I would recommend this place for a fun place for groups.

I do suggest some decor to, the walls were just orange and no fixtures.

First time here and I believe it is a new place.
Went for Valentines. We wait around 15 min before we had a table. The waiters and all the personal were very nice and helpful.
The place is simple, but its nice.
We got the package. The cheese fondue was fantastic! The main course was the selection of different products (meat, pasta, seafood, etc) that you cook yourself. I tried these before, it was good, but in general I am not very attach to this kind of food. The dessert was chocolate fondue which was amazing!
In general a place I will go back!
