“A fun, retro way to eat a meal”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

When you make plans to go, a reservation might be a good idea. Tables are not emptied quickly. Guests are treated to a longer than normal dining experience. All the food comes out in different courses, and guests are not rushed to get through each one. The wait staff is great at helping and explaining what each item is and what to do. It is definitely a fun place to go with friends, but you should probably leave the little kids at home because of the time commitment with the meal. The food is not abundant, but it was good.

“Definitely bad food”

The Swiss people would shut tht place down in a heartbeat ! Cheap tasteless food! You are better off buying fondue cheese from trader Joe's and doing it yourself !

“Yummy for restaurant week”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

I love fondue. Meat, veggie, cheese, chocolate! But I have had hit or miss at this restaurant. A late lunch for restaurant week was a hit!

Lively salad, cheese fondue & chocolate fondue for $15 a person. Great experience.
