Similar to a Melting Pot restaurant...delicious food, my husband and I gorged ourselves, couldn't put the fondue forks down. Best deal is the 4 course dinner!

“An excellent fondue experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

I went to Simply Fondue as we had been several years back and decided to go back whenever there was a groupon for it. We had been here before so we knew what to expect coming in. The atmosphere, though very dark, fits with the type of restaurant that it is. The service was good and so was the food. However, be forewarned that the wine list is absolutely terrible. On the other hand, the wine isnt too expensive since most of it is $8-$12 bottles they probably purchase from Sam's Club. However the food experience is worth it and fun for a romantic setting or a special occasion/group. The cheese fondue is delicious and reminds me of the cheese fondues I have had in Switzerland. The entrees are fun and you have a large variety of options to choose from. The desserts all look delicious and each that have had has been well worth it. Have fun, try a variety of different items, and take your time enjoying the experience.

“Well worth the short wait. Food was good. Experience was fun.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

4 of us split two combo meals. We had two types of cheese fondue and then each person selected their own meats.
I enjoyed the retro Fondue experience
The quality of the meats was quite good.

“Fabulous if you know what to expect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

Okay your going to a restaurant, but you cook your own food. I love this restaurant. My husband and I dined here on a saturday night for our anniversary. The waiter was incredible, he asked if there was a special occaision and he gave us complimentary glasses of champaigne to accompany our desert. The atmosphere was excellent. The service was good. I will be coming back again.

“Terrible Experience/Horrible Service: Not suitable for group events!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2010

As my list of complaints is exhaustive I will try to be succinct. This was a birthday celebration with a party of 17 people. As a group we frequent many Dallas restaurant establishments and this one by far out did itself on HORRIBLE service. To begin with the menu on the website is not the same as the menu at the restaurant, especially the drink options. Although the web lists a full bar menu they told us they only served beer and wine. The waitress (Andre) was horrible. I called ahead letting them know it was a birthday event. I mentioned it to the waitress as well. Her response "I know". That was it, no warm welcome or interest in knowing who the birthday person was. No one bothered to ask or make mention of the birthday. The service was horrible. They skipped one person when taking the drink order then got an attitude when we mentioned it. It took 4 requests to finally get silverware that was initially missing from the place setting. Service was slow and both the servers assigned to our table were very indifferent to us. The food was mediocre and the portions small considering the $60 price tag. The pot warmers are built in to the table meaning several people have to share a pot. There were 5-6 pots that 17 people were supposed to share. They tell you it takes 7 minutes to cook your food and at one end of the table 5 people were stuck sharing one pot. Do the math!!! Oh yeah, and if you are vegetarian too bad, you have to share your broth with the non-vegetarians. Absolutely no accommodations made for vegetarian needs. The menu has several choices of broth (which you use to cook your own food) and the waitress recommended the Mediterranean one. She failed to mention it came with an additional fee. We found out when we got our bill. At first she said it was $5 per pot yet when we all looked at our bill it was $5 per person. At our insistence on clarification she said it was $5 per person not per pot. The menu simply has a number "5" next to the selection. No indication what the 5 is for. Worse of all, the waitress went on to get checks and collect payment from one half of the table knowing full well the other half of the table (the one stuck 5 people on 1 pot) was not done with dinner and still had dessert left. Half of the table got up to leave not realizing that others were not done. Why she thought getting checks for part of the table at a party event was a good idea is beyond me. She offered a rain check for dessert to those at the table that had not gotten their checks so, as she put it "you can all leave at the same time and come back another time for dessert". Really she though any of us wanted to come back. Maybe if she had bothered to find out who the host was and communicated with him, it may have gone differently. Of course this did not matter one bit to her. She collected her mandatory 18% gratuity regardless of her terrible serving skills, mediocre food and overpriced menu. We will not be returning to this place again. I wrote a letter to the restaurant with my complaints and never received any kind of response. Do Not go to this restaurant it's a waste of time and money.
