“So Worth it...For the Desserts!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

This particular melting pot is my favorite. But with that said, I really feel it is worth the price for the cheese and chocolate fondue! The staff is really friendly and knowledgeable.

“very good but expensive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2012

definitely a special event place if you go all the way with the multi course meal. the cheese fondue was very good, the broth selection to cook the meat was also very good. the chocolate with the peanut butter was the best part because you could dip it onto cake and cheese cake. the good was very good and the service was excellent, but it takes a few nickels to go there.

“For a special dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

This place is wonderful! The staff is always attentive & friendly! You can mix and match your flavors and every course is mouthwatering. I am never one to eat dessert, but who can pass up melted chocolate with stuff to dip in it! It is a bit pricey, but well worth every penny!

“Good but pricey.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

Great fusion of flavors, and an active dining experience. However...quite pricey. Party of 10...was $500+. It's customary to add gratuity for parties>8. However, the tip was over $70!

The food was great, and way toooooo much of it.
Could have been satisfied with cheese fondue, a salad, and dessert. Or...saved $200 by getting 2 less platters. It was an overwhelming amount of food.

Dessert was the best part!

“Solid. Fun.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

The food is not amazing, but the experience is just really fun. We go with our kids and they have a ball cooking their own stuff.
