La Fondue - Saratoga
Our 11th Wedding Anniversary DinnerThank you so much for a wonderful dining experience. I have been to LaFondue many times, but it is always
a wonderful time, and such great food. Thank goodness my husband and I had a 5:00pm reservation because with all that
we enjoyed we needed to take a long walk when we got home.
We will be back again soon, and our waitress was awesome too!!
Keith and Kathy Leonard6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMTop 3 hands down!My bf and I recently went here for a romantic birthday dinner. It was one of the best dinners I have ever had. Ambiance was a little dark considering you are cooking meat, but other than that it was perfect. For a great price we had a four course meal. It was more than what we expected! Plenty of options!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM50th birthday extravaganzant6 girlfriends went to La Fondue Saturday night to celebrate a 50th birthday. Food, as usual was outstanding. Service was a bit slow and the restaurant didn't seem overly busy for a Saturday night. The restaurant did bring us complementary 1/2 glasses of champagne with dessert.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLaFondue experienceLaFondue is an incredible restaurant with amazing food and service. I have taken my family several times and always have had an amazing time. We were fortunate to take a new family member with us this last dining time. He was extremely impressed with the food quality. He has never experienced a fine dining as this. So thank you LaFondue for another amazing and wonderful dining experience as always. We will continue to dine with you from time to time.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a special birthday girlI wanted to take my wife somewhere super special on her birthday and didn't know what to do, until someone told me about this place! We were bringing our two girls (7 and 5) and wasn't sure if they'd have fun there. The place was a bit dark for the kids and they were a little spooked at first, but once the fondue showed up the got busy and it was so much fun. Of course the exceptional service and highest quality of food made this an above and beyond experience, and while it was a bit of a long dinner for the girls overall we all had fun, and my wife really truly enjoyed the experience. We were very grateful for the complimentary birthday champagne and soda w/cherry in it for the girls. Truly exceptional, highly recommend!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent date night locationI went on a Thursday which I hoped would be quiet and mellow but was actually fairly busy and energetic. Not too loud though and the experience of the full combination meal was excellent6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place to take forExcellent place to take for those who never been to La Fondue. You get to see their expression on thier face and their reaction. The food, environment, and especially the service was excellent. We want to thank the Chefs who did a terrific job.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMLove, Love, Love La Fondue!This is one of my very favorite spots for fondue! There are so many fun options and dinner packages available and the wait staff is very knowledgeable about the food. I highly recommend this place for a nice date night out or any special occasion!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated my oldest daughter'sWe celebrated my oldest daughter's college grad. and my youngest daughter's 17th birthday. We were treated like queens! Love La Fondue!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall groups in, Kids outI've been coming to La Fondue for over 20 years and I enjoy it every time. The service is excellent, the food is exquisite, and the atmosphere is a true immersion. This last time however, the atmosphere was disturbed by overly excited children speaking much louder than the usually quiet setting. I won't let that ruin it for me though - 20 years and one not-that-bad experience won't derail my appetite's desires. La Fondue is my place of choice for a romantic evening that is cost-friendly and never fails to make the S.O. happy. I recommend the Feast for two, and the cajun shark if it's available. Top it off with the milk-chocolate fondue with amaretto, and you will never leave this place less-than full.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMeal....exotic.....Desert. ..eroticWhat a fantastic restaurant for a social dining experience.The menu is packed full of exotic meats if you feel adventurous enough to try antelope, wild boar or kangaroo. The Swiss fondue was balanced and righteous while the chocolate will make you want to lick every drop! Portions are generous..we easily split the 2 portion by four with food leftover. It is vibrant and loud with a Christian La Croix feel for decor. A terrific two hour exotic experience!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always!My fiancee and I try to go to La Fondue about once a year. This time we brought a friend from out of the country and they were very accommodating to a third person. We had a server named Jeff S. who was from New Orleans. He was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest meal you'll ever have.I love La Fondue this is the best meal you'll ever have. From the salad to desert everything is so good.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Anniversary DinnerTook my girlfriend there for our 1st anniversary, had great service and the food was awesome, cheese then meat then chocolate with a salad if you think you won't be full with that!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWill eat here many timesSimply excellent in all regards. The menu has great selections and combinations of food. Loved the cheese and chocolate fondue and enjoyed the option of grilling the meats at the table. Never had to look for the waitress as she was always right there with anything we may have needed.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionThis is the perfect place to have an incredible meal and an extrodinary desert.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMmade reservations at 7:30made reservations at 7:30 and didnt' get seated till 8:00. Wasn't really happy about that. They did offer the patio area but we wanted to sit inside. After that, everything turned out nice.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Service!Probably the 3rd or 4th visit to La Fondue and was the best ever. Our server, Richelle, was professional and right on que the entire meal. Very personable and honestly added to the event. Food was as amazing as always. Can't wait to return!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRude WaiterAs is usual with La Fondue our food was amazing, but the service was terrible. The waiter at different times was rude, standoffish, and just NOT THERE. We asked him for extras of certain things (something we've done several times) and he would bring such small amounts to seem he was skimping.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNo rush, just enjoy!Staff was friendly and informative. I was worried we would be rushed through the very long dining experience to free up the table. I was pleasantly surprised, there was no rush at all. We took our time and had great food, wine and company! Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLovin' La FondueThis was my second time to La Fondue, and while it is a bit pricy, you are truly paying for an experience, not just dinner. The wait staff was excellent and the food was amazing.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat wild game.Very nice place but just too much food. A bit noisy but their desserts are Awesome!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Party for 5We had a great time, once again! We had a first time birthday guest with us and he LOVED your staff and food. Such fun and kind staff made for the perfect celebration dinner. Great food, kind staff and yummy chocolate - best present of the night!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place! I haveI love this place! I have been here about five times! I can't wait to come back!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and great serviceWent there to celebrate my husband's birthday. Food was AMAZING and we were very lucky to have a wonderful waitress who really took the time to explain everything to us and was very vigilant to ensure that our fondue was at the proper temperature,etc.
We had a very grumpy 1 year-old with us (unfortunately no one could babysit him), but our waitress made sure he was happy by getting him little snacks and talking to him. Also, the restaurant gave us complimentary glasses of champagne to celebrate the occasion. The only thing I would change about this place is the decor and perhaps the availability of high chairs/booster seats for children (I saw MANY children at the restaurant the night I was there!). Everything else was just PERFECT!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMForgottenMy fiancé and I love La Fondue. Every experience has been great prior to this last one. We had an 8:45 reservation, yet we were not sat until 9:30. Once I thought I finally heard my name, I find another couple who had been there 10 min jump up and claim that La Fondue had his name wrong. So they sat them and told me, " she just called you, the next table is yours". First, you double check the name WRITTEN on the computer, then give them more then 30 seconds to respond. Needless to say, the rest of our night was cancelled because 9:30 was 45 min after our reservation and therefor we wouldn't be leaving by 1030 anymore. I found it surprising that no one seemed to care we were waiting too long and skipped. Stay away on weekends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and Great Food.The food here is great the servers know the menu very well. The food is great quality and generous portions are served. Dessert is Amazing!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable diningA wonderful place. You will leave stuffed! They even give you complimentary champagne for special occasions!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion go-to!We moved to the East Bay 13 years ago, and we still make the drive to La Fondue for special occasions. We have such great memories of our meals there. Our latest trip involved our 9 year old son and was his reward for a special achievement. I suspect he will have fond memories as well. Where else can you eat alligator, Kobe beef, and roast marshmallows over an open flame - all in one meal! Delicious!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Office Dinner spotLa Fondue is a great place to have a small team dinner. For best value, order the fondue combinations for two -- which include choice of salad, cheese fondue, meat/veg fondue and dessert fondue. The meal takes approximately three hours, so it is a nice team reward, welcome or farewell spot. Bring your wallet -- it is expensive.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the atmosphere. VeryLove the atmosphere. Very eclectic decor, wonderful service and the food was fun and delicious.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NightMy wife and I had a wonderful dinner on Thursday May 2nd.

The food is excellent and unique. This place is great because the food is interactive and you aren't rushed at all. We spent two hours there and enjoyed every minute. Thank you La Fondue!!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been here many times,We have been here many times, but our visit on 4/13/13 stood out as one our best, due in large part to service provided by Jonathan and Amanda. It was my girlfriends birthday, and from our greet at the host stand until the time we left 2 hours later all three of us in our party felt welcomed and totally taken care of. The food and the ambiance sale itself, service....GREAT SERVICE, is what we pay for. Thank you to your entire team for making this a special evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and I came toMy boyfriend and I came to La Fondue to celebrate (both of) our birthdays, and we had a wonderful time. I had been there before but he had not, and I knew that it would be pricey so we saved up for it.
If you are going out to a pricier dinner, this is a unique, fun, romantic, delicious way to spend your cash. Make sure to get the Lemon Tarragon dressing on your salad, I'm certain that you can't go wrong with ANY of the cheeses or chocolates, and if you feel like having a bundle of new food experiences get the Wild Thing combination dinner (We did!). And pay close attention to your favorite dipping goodies, because they'll bring extras of whatever you want to dip into the cheese or chocolate.
Plan to diet the following day...4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my friends out for aTook my friends out for a celebration.

It is a full meal from salad and appetizers to main course and desert.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a great double dateThis was a great double date night out with friends. The nature of fondue is very social so it brings out all kinds of conversation topics and laughs. We were seated in a cozy part of the restaurant, and enjoyed our cheese fondue (schweiz), meat selection and chocolate fondue (dark with grand marnier). Service was a little spotty sometimes - our server would disappear for chunks of time -- but we got what we needed eventually. Definitely recommend!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing & theThe food was amazing & the service was friendly. We loved our waiter (Eric S.).
