Fun in groups! make a reservation! – Yes, this place is WAY OVERPRICED but...its fun! Its a date night sort of place or when you go out with another a couple. You will pay over $80 per couple (not including drinks) so be prepared. They make a great Strawberry Shortcake Martini though! You can go for just a cheese fondue course and drinks or dessert and drinks though. I would do that next time. But for your first time try the three courses. It takes a couple of hours to get through it but its worth it. Then the second time just go for dessert. I love it and its a lot of fun.
Wonderful experience – I went to this restaurant not knowing what to expect. What I found was a wonderful dining experience. The food was very good, from the wine, to the salad, to the three cheese fondue, to the entree of lobster and various meats, to the chocolate with Baileys dessert. The food, the wine, the service, the ambience and the company all added up to a very memorable and enjoyable evening. This is not a rush to eat, in and out type place, but a place to relax and enjoy. I am looking forward to my next visit.
(This program will not allow me to write the name of the restaurant; apparently the second word of the name of the restaurant is "inappropriate" :)
Horribly Bland Food – I went here thinking it would be a first class experience based on their advertising hype.
After my meal, I found that it was all hype and no substance to back it up.
The food had absolutely no seasoning and was simply raw meat cut into cubes
and thrown carelessly onto a plate. As for the desert, the pastry was very dry and
the strawberries were unwashed. As if that wasn't enough, the chocolate was very runny
and we could actually see the water that they mixed in with it.
Great Date Restaurant – This resaturant is such a great place to take a special date. I was a little worried at first that it wouldn't be very filling but I was wrong. We ordered the Big Night Out which includes the cheese fondue appetizer, caesar salad, entree (steak, shrimp, chicken etc.) and chocolate fondue for dessert. The wine list is extensive as well. The restaurant has a great romantic ambiance without being snobby. It is such a great leisurely meal that you really get to spend time with the person you are with and have a really enjoyable time.
Your own dinner and show. – Great evening out. You choose the courses and direct the food preparation. The food is fresh, the fondu outstanding and lots of fun in the preparation. The waiters and waitresses are helpful, appear at just the right times, and you never feel rushed. You are truly the "King of the Castle".
One of San Antonio's most romantic restaurants. – Great place for a romantic date! Highly recommend to make reservations and ask for the private booths.
Nice Place to Go with a Group and/or Special Occassion – The Fondue is quite good, and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Make no mistake, though, this place is all about wine and the fondue just coincidentally goes fabulously with the vino. This is one great place to have a gathering of 3-4 couples and share a table. It is a great "Special Occassion Place" which is code for this place is pricey, but worth it. To check it out without going completely broke, go for drinks and a fondue appetizer or coffee and the chocolate Fondue Dessert. That little play is very well received at the restaurant because they know if you try it, you'll be back to tell them, as Austin Powers says, "Oh Fondue Me Baby!!"
Wow!! Very impressive – The MP restaurant is one of the best I have ever eaten at. The atmosphere is quiet and classy and the service is outstanding, friendly and adaptable to your needs. The food and wine are out of this world. The wine list is the largest I have ever seen. I would recommend The MP to anyone looking for a great place for that special occasion or just taking a friend to dinner.
Fondue is fun – The restaurant is dark and relaxing. The cheese fondue and the dessert are the best things, but I don't like going to a restaurant just to have to cook my entree when I'm there - seems to defeat the purpose. Great wine selection and cocktails. I can't see it as a place I'd go all the time but it was a fun one-time experience.
User review by sadie98 – This place is wonderful. My husband and I went and loved everything about it. It was very romantic and the service was outstanding. We ordered the "Big Night Out". It was plenty of food. Be sure to save room for the dessert (included with the Big Night Out). The chocolate fondue is to die for!! This is our new favorite restaurant. And...the wine list is the absolute best in San Antonio. We ate including appetizers, salad, entree and dessert for around $80. not including tax and tip. What a bargain. We will be back very soon.
