Hip Kitty Jazz & Fondue
Cool AtmosphereI am in love with the old fashion atmosphere at the Hip Kitty! The band was fun to listen to and the dancing was really cool to watch. We ordered the "Dinner for Two" ($108) and split it 4 ways. It was plenty of food since we had an appetizer at another place. Don't
go to Hip Kitty hungry. Service can be slow because they get busy and if you order fondue it can take a while. Our out of town guests really enjoyed it too!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Anniversary DinnerMy boyfriend and I met at the Hip Kitty two years ago, our trip was to celebrate. We choose the 'dinner for two' option which gives you a half salad each, cheese fondue-with veggies, bread, and fruit, meat fondue-he had surf and turf I had the carnivore, plus desert fondue and a bottle of wine for $110. The food was very filling and delicious and it takes about three hours from the time start to finish. They don't rush you through the courses. The chocolate was a bit then and left me with a "I want more" feeling.
The only downside was the band. We had to pay a cover charge of $5 to get in even with reservations and the band's amp was up too loud for me personally. Overall, we will most likely do it again.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice outingI took a friend and she enjoyed it very much. Waitress was GREAT!!!!, food was very good. The place has a great vibe to it.

Everyone, from the hostess that greeted us at the door to the servers, etc., were so nice and very accommodating! Great atmosphere - kind of early 60's lounge. We ordered off the regular menu - sandwiches & salads were good. The fondue looked great - will probably try that next time. The band was amazing, too - would definitely go again!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGot it goin on!..

Can't wait to return to the Hip Kitty when Groove Session performs again.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNo Jazz of Saturday Night?Food and Ambience was great as usual, but.....how can a Jazz Club not have Jazz on a Saturday night???? Very disappointed that they went "off-menu" to a Blues band on the biggest night-out of the week. Don't get me wrong - the band was good - but you can't bait and switch like that on a Saturday. Maybe a Tuesday or Wednesday, but not a Saturday. We ate and left.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Lobster Mac & Cheese.Incredible Lobster Mac & Cheese. The band "Nutty" was fantastic!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI honestly wouldn't recommendI honestly wouldn't recommend dinner as much as I would the cheese and and chocolate fondue. Although I haven't had anything else other than the fondue (I hear the salads are good, and the gourmet grilled cheese looks like they might be great as well), the Manchego is the way to go!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe venue was a blast fromThe venue was a blast from the past regarding menu, atmosphere, and music.
