The 70's called and want their fondue pot back! – This is a great concept for an evening get-together, but usually you have something else to do. Dinner's around $35 per person, the food's not seasoned, and plan to kill around three hours.
Pricey cheese dip, but a nice experience. – My wife and I wanted to have a birthday dinner and always wanted to try this spot. The hostess was glib, for a couple WITH a reservation, and spoke way too fast. We needed a run thru of the menu AGAIN as we didn't have a clue what the hostess meant. The citysearch price list is for individual entrees NOT the 3 and 4 full course meals in the menu that feed a couple of people which is what the reviewer is describing; Expect to pay two to three times that. You may do things a la carte, but you may not get the variety or value depending on what your order
My wife and I had the fondue fusion which is 4 courses. 1 cheese course, 2 salad, 3 meat, 4 dessert course. Everything is brought out on small dishes, cut, or broken up. For instance the chicken is UNCOOKED and sliced into several pieces. Also, when you hear pound cake or brownie with the dessert course; don't expect a whole slice or square; but many small pieces for dipping. I will admit that there is more food than you think OR meets the eye. The Cheese and dessert portion was the most enjoyable. Remember, the etree/meat portion is uncooked; so allow some time for your hunger pangs.
Our waitress was fine. She explained things a few times as the menu is confusing in my opinion. She also, explained the cheese fondue and prepares it right before your eyes. One observation that was slightly distractive was that several different waiters would comment or freely adjust the temperature of the p*T at our table which we thought was odd. At one point I politely said, 'It's ok' to the 2nd person NOT our waiter.
Melting p*t is a great experience IF you have time and want to look dreamily into another's eyes. It's conversational; like an upscale craw fish boil.
It's hip to dip at this cozy fondue-lover's paradise. – In Short
Booths equipped with tabletop fondue pots are clustered together inside the intimate dining room. Start with a cheese fondue, including an assortment of breads, veggies and fruits for dipping. Entrees include lobster, center-cut filet, fish, chicken and vegetarian selections served with a variety of dipping sauces. For dessert, try the flaming turtle, a mix of chocolate and caramel flambéed tableside, served with nut-covered marshmallows, fresh fruit, pound cake, brownies and cheesecake.
