Food and service were good.
Food and service were good. It was hot. Not much airflow inside. However, I would go there again.

This restaurant was delicious! The Urban Experience is a great deal for your money and you get more food than you could possibly eat. The cheese fondue to start is amazing! I recommend getting the Ruby Port or Gorgonzola and Brie if you like that sort of thing. We had the sausage to dip in as well as the bread (which was very light and fresh). The east meets west entree was designed to share between two. It is definitely more than enough food for two, maybe even three! The process of cooking your own food in the broth also helps you slow down and enjoy each morsel of food after stuffing yourself full of cheese. The dessert fondue is of course the best! Caramel Cognac was a particular favorite. The martinis and cocktails are fantastic!

Yummy food & excellent service
We picked the hottest night of the summer to go but even that could not detract from how good the food is. We did the shared three course flight. We have 3 cheese fondues, our entrees & 4 dessert fondues (there were 7 of us). The waiter was great - attentive but not pushy and helped make suggestions or just downright making decisions on things like dipping sauces and broth .He was right. He was also very sensitive to a shellfish allergy in the party.
And don't skip the delicious martinis from Bartini next door (connected). They were all fantastic. So much so that we kept talking about coming back for happy hour soon!

Had a great experience at Urban Fondue. Took reviewers recommendations for the Port Cheese with extra fruit and for dessert we got the Bananas Foster. Delicious. We will go back.

They tried to get us a booth when we wanted one and that was appreciated, they moved us after a booth opened up. The food is great, it seems like the portions aren't that big, but there is definitely enough food once you cook things a few at a time. Go between 4-6 or on sunday to get a discount ($27/person instead of $32). Really great service, and the cocktails were really delicious and different than anything we have had so far!

Best Service and Food
Everytime we go to Urban Fondue we have the best food along with great service. The employees are friendly and on top of it. We love this place and would highly recommend it to all our friends and those looking for good food and great atmosphere.

A go-to favorite
My fiancé and I love coming to urban fondue. We tend to go early, so it's much more quiet than if you're there for the 6 or 7 pm crowd. We love the fondue experience, because you get the most bang for your buck. The martinis are also amazing, courtesy of Bartini next door. Great service, great food, not pretentious.

Best Fondue in Portland
Waiter was very informative and helpful in assisting us with the right combinations for our tastes.

I went for a bachelorette party. The food was great, service was great. The waiter was very friendly and very accommodating!! Will definitely be going back!

It's a fond-do
I greatly enjoyed Urban Fondue. To be fair, all we had was cheese fondue (brie gorgonzola) and a tasty appetizer, but it was delicious. I'm looking forward and coming back to have a dessert fondue

Great for a Date
The booths in the back of the restaurant are perfect for a romantic evening out. My husband and I love it!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was great, though slightly slow at times, but very friendly. The food was great as well. The need to turn the AC up when it's hot outside.

Fun for familes or couples
Great idea for families or romantic dinner for couples. It was fun and the food was great! Highly recommend this for special occasions.

Great food! The restaurant
Great food! The restaurant was a little warm and the tables were pretty close together, but our waiter was wonderful and the experience overall was very enjoyable!!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We took my husband there for his 42nd Birthday. He doesn't like to go downtown Portland, too many people, but I have to say he enjoyed his birthday dinner with us. Thanks so much for the best experience.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The server took great care of us and ended the meal with a special birthday dessert. It was great...thank you!!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this retaurant
Always have an amazing time with friends. I tend to bring in new people due to the awesome service and outstanding food! The fondue is wonderful and always a go to. Thank you!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
My spouse and I loved everything about the experience. The only problem we had was where we were seated. Despite having reserved our table well in advance, we were seated at the table right outside the kitchen entrance. I think they would be better off just getting rid of this table. Not a very romantic spot, and as a two seater a couple on a date is what it is likely to get. Other than that, everything was top notch.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here for my fifteenth birthday and the food was so great I can't even. These cheese fondue looked kind of strange but omigosh. I duded when I ate it. Also, get the creamed spinach. It's fantastic.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and great experience and service as always!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Dining Experience!!
Went to Urban Fondue / Bartini with friends before a concert and it was the perfect choice! We got the 3-course fondue special and it was so much fun... So many cheese, main course and dessert fondue choices that we left it up to our attentive and entertaining waiter to choose for us and we were not dissapointed in the least. We had such a great time that before we knew it, 3 hours had flown by! This is not the place to go if you are expecting to eat and be out in an hour by any means but it is the place to go to relax with good friends or on a romantic date! The ambiance is outstanding and the martini list is impressive (try the Bird of Paradise!!!). Excellent service and outstanding dining experience... We will most definitely be back!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM

The cheese course was amazing
The cheese course was amazing as was the dessert. The main course was tasty as well but the highlight was definitely the cheese fondue and the dessert. We had the Gorgonzola and brie. I will go her again just to try more of the cheese mixtures.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a G.N.O
My girlfriends and I had such an awesome time at Urban Fondue. Not only was the food delicious the service was outstanding as well. Because of the size of the restaurant, it's more of a small group kind of place. Regardless, the interior is super vibrant and has a modern and comfy ambiance. Highly recommend for a G.N.O :)
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Fondue In Portland!
Their food is fantastic, the environment is great!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome cheese fondues
The classic dip-your-bread in cheese fondues are the best; the meat, veggie, and dessert fondues are ok, but not as good. The brie and gorgonzola is my favorite, by far.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I tried Urban Fondue for out Anniversary this year and loved it. The ambience was perfect, Sean our waiter was fantastic and the food amazing. We will be back again soon.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my husband here first for is both and the experience was great we did the whole thing but don't do if hour tight on time. Tools about 3 hours. If you can request a booth it's loud and at least in booth you have privacy and comfort of couch and pillows. We will return but next time maybe just enjoy the cheese and dessert :)
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Urban Fondue has a great menu, lots of choices for Fondue. The cheese fondue was super and the dessert was delightful. This is our second time here and we will come again with friends because you definitly want to share this experience.

A Very Portland Dining Experience
Looking for something unique & special? This is it!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfect for aanniversary dinner
first time in a fondue restaurant we picked urban fondue over the melting pot because of a friends personal recommendation. our server jake was great and helped us along the whole experience. we enjoyed the 2 and half hours of sitting there eating, laughing, and enjoying each others company. we will be back with friends and family and highly recommend it for anybody that wants to have a great experience.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fondue becomes fun once you
Fondue becomes fun once you lose the frying oil, but you must cook the whole meal yourself!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food, excellent
Excellent food, excellent waiter, the only glitch was our reservation was for a booth and they tried to seat us at a table in the middle of the dining room. They were able to accommodate and we were able to sit in the raised booth at the rear of the dining room.
The food was good...but let's be honest here, I would go back just for the dessert:) My god, chocolate hazelnut fondue with assorted dip-able treats!!!!!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here for my fiances birthday dinner. Sooooooo delicious! Had the smoked cheddar fondue, urban fondue for 2, and health chocolate dessert fondue. Great all around, and our server was awesome! We will be back!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I must say this place was very good! Me and my girlfriend both enjoyed it, it was perfect for our anniversary. It is very easy for your bill to be over 100$ very quickly.. So watch for that!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Night Out
In from out of town and received a recommendation for yummy fondue. We went with the monthly 3 course special and it was great. Good price for a special night out. The neighborhood was cute and the ambience was perfect for an anniversary dinner.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was amazing and the experience enjoyable.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Fondue Experience!
My girlfriend and I finally visited and we both ordered the Fondue experience which was a great idea. The fondue is so delicious! I would recommend to go easy on the cheese and bread in the first course so you can have room in your belly for dessert! The atmosphere was very romantic and comfortable. Service and music was great and I would go back just for dessrt fondue also. The only thing I didn't like was the booth we sat at which made me feel claustrophobic. The cushions against my back pushed me forward and it was hard to stay upright as they make you lean forward a little. Next time we will sit at a table, not one of the booths.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
great dinner for two
great food at reasonable prices (especially for a fondue place); great service from a waiter who was very helpful with selecting from the menu; a little noisy from birthday groups of young adults that were there, a great dining experience. Only problem was the parking.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
I've been here a few times and everytime it is outstanding!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
A DINING EXPERIENCE
My husband and I found this gem a few months ago and love it. It's simply, "a dining experience"! Surprise friends or have an extra special "date night". Regardless, you'll not regret it. The servers are very helpful and attentive to the right degree. They too enhanced our overall experience as well.
If you visit on a hot day, DON'T sit in one of the wall booths......too hot, sticky, no air movement.....you will sweat....we ALL did.
This is the ONLY negative.....
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Urban Fondue enables getting to know the potential complexities of cooking your own delicacies so easy and fun.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wonderful Fondue Dinner
My daughter and I had a fabulous time here! Exceptional service and comfy booths equaled the delicious three course fondue we had. We will be back!
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing fondue and side dishes- small inside, not great for larger groups- although there was a party of about 8 there. Better for small groups or couples- great martinis too :) parking was aweful- but worth it for the food/service/atmosphere.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very fun time with another
Very fun time with another couple doing fondue. The waiter was very good about explaining everything to us.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a pleasure!
I've gone to Urban Fondue many times for different occasions (friends, birthdays, anniversaries) and the service and food is always amazing. The only hassle is finding parking, which is street only. Check it out!
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food/conversation place
The restaurant has an intimate feel, and a dizzying array of food and dipping sauces. Our waiter was able to offer great insight into
which sauces and broths worked best with the choices and was spot on! Our group of 4 had a wide variety and everyone agreed it the broths added much depth to the meal. Be sure and save room for the dessert, the chocolate offerings are not only rich but filling. If you are looking for a place for a special occasion, Urban Fondue will fit the bill. We had a concert to attend, and for a group of 4 we thought 1 1/2 hours would be enough but we did have to hurry through the dessert as we were running out of time.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Urban Fondue was a very fun experience for us on Thanksgiving! The service was great, the food was great, and the whole time we were there we were well taken care by our waiter. We left very satisfied and not stuffed. We would definately come back again for another special occasion!
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
WOW! We were looking to do something different and memorable on Thanksgiving other than turkey, and Urban Fondue didn't disappoint. Our server, Sean, was AMAZING. He was quick to provide explanations and suggestions (all of which were right on target) and the food was just FANTASTIC! the ambiance was wonderful and we will definitely be going back! Can I humbly recommend the blue cheese/gorgonzola hazelnut fondue?????
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We loved everything about Urban Fondue! Best dining experience in a long time, thank you for all the wonderful service!
