    We were new to fondue, but our waitress guided us through the menu and made good suggestions. The meat dishes came with an array of different dipping sauces which made the meal tasty, yet fun. The chocolate fondue with fruit was particularly delicious!

  • Best fondue restaurant on Montreal

    Dined on 5/22/2014
    At first glance I was concerned that this restaurant would be a disappointment given the rundown neighborhood. However once we entered, we were surrounded by a warmth, both in the choice of colors & the service. We had swiss fondu w/ traditional cheeses & chinese one. Both were delicious and the portions were ample. Later I realized there was a second dining room that was more updated but I preferred our room since it was cozier. When I left, I looked at the street w/ fresh eyes & realized that all of the blocks around La Fonderie had been renovated which was why I was so comfortable walking to the restaurant. That's good since after trying at least 4 other fondue restaurants, we had finally found one that we would happily return to.

    Perfect for a cold winter night. We went for Valentine's dinner so it was a set menu. Tasty cheese fondue, good selection of meats, and good chocolate fondue. The resto could use a makeover as there's not much ambiance. Waitress was very friendly and attentive. Nice touch was a long stemmed rose on every table. Presentation of food could use some work but overall the food tasted very good.

    The place is quite charming, not too fancy but not plain either. The food was deliciously prepared and the portions were good. It was a Saturday night so the restaurant was quite busy yet still quiet enough to have good conversation without shouting. This is exactly what you would want when going for fondue. The wait staff was excellent and even suggested a different plate to us which comes with the same portions we asked for but at a cheaper price. All 3 of our fondues (cheese, Chinese, chocolate) were fantastic. I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a nice night out with a lengthy fondue dinner.

    We were visiting Montreal and our 15yo daughter found this charming neighborhood restaurant in the Mount Royal district. The waiter was beyond helpful in explaining the choices, he seemed to really enjoy his job. The fondue "feast" was more than enough for our group and we all agreed this was a gem of a place. As it was July we would have loved an outdoor dining area but we can understand that fondue in the middle of a Montreal winter must be a great event!

    The food is good. The meat & fish/sea food was fresh! Too much garlic butter on the bread and no choice of regular bread in the basket we had to ask for it. Tables are a nice size which is nice because fondu take a lot of space on a table. The service was good, the waitress we had had a good knowledge of the menu and questions were answered on the spot. A bit too expensive, both it's ok for special occasion. The ambiance was ok. Good place for family or group dinner with kids.

    La Founderie offers a pleasant experience at a fair price. The menu is slightly intimidating for noobs but it makes sense after a explanation. The service could be improved with speedier execution and with the price per plate ave. around $50, an upgrade to the decor is needed. However, the taste and plate presentation do offset the previous comments and I would recommend others to this establishment. Overall good find for a great night with friends and loved ones.

    Un seul choix de fondue au fromage et quelques raclettes. Pour les puristes de la fondue savoyarde vous risquez d'être un peu déçus. Pour les autres vous devriez trouver votre bonheur dans la grande carte des fondues a base de viande (bourguignonne et chinoise). Compter dans les 100$ pour deux avec du vin.

    Food was good even if the prices are way too high for what you get. A normal cheese fondue 30$ ? No vegetables as sides and you get only deep fried potatoes with it. Restaurant and decor is old and need refrubishing. Poor waiter was alone for a full restaurent. Food was pulled out quick but no other form of service at all. Mistakes were made on bills : twice.

    We went for a work Christmas party. The experience was great, the meat and regular bread were fresh, the cheese was amazing, the garlic bread was crispy, buttery and garlicky, and the chocolate was delightful. The only disappointment was the "green salad" - it was, quite literally, a green salad - with nothing but half a head of romaine lettuce chopped up with balsamic/olive oil dressing on it. I also recommend escargot - it was not rubbery or chewy and it had a great flavour.

But we forget about the decoration when we eat the food which is sooooo good and the service is No 1, Thanks to Jojo and all the excellent team at La Fonderie
