A word from Simply Fondue - Ft Worth
Simply Fondue's four course meal starts with one of four refreshing and unique salads, followed by your choice of one of five types of creamy cheese fondues to dip Constantine's fresh breads, crisp vegetables and luscious Granny Smith apples into. Moving on to the third course, Simply Fondue has begun to revolutionize fondue options by including low-fat alternatives to the hot oil fondue. A seasoned vegetable broth and a delicious burgundy wine broth are now delicious alternatives to the already tasty Bourguignon. Simply Fondue offers the best beef, incredible lobster, chicken, pork, shrimp, scallops, and vegetable fondues. Your fourth course is one you won't want to miss. Top off your fondue experience with one of many sinful chocolate fondues made from some of the finest chocolates from around the world. Dipped with strawberries maraschino cherries, apples and marshmallows. Delightful!!!

    Ask for jerry!! He was awesome!!! We got a table right away by a friendly hostess and jerry was nice enough to explain everything to us! He even made our mushrooms for us, cause we were having fondue difficulties. He made a personal touch and talked to us than more than our dinner. In the end we were fat and happy and felt we made a new friend!

    Check in as soon as you arrive, even if you have a reservation it's first come first serve. Service was good at first then dwindled towards the end. The food is bland unless what you order is seasoned "garlic chicken" was really good. The best part was the dessert!

Great way to celebrate her birthday and a great start to a romantic evening. The server was ever so kind to also bring us a slice of cheesecake as a gift to her. Worth every penny!

This location is on the same floor as the Scat Lounge, so we finished the night with some jazz, which made it an even more enjoyable experience,

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    We ate at Simply Fondue for my husband's birthday. There were 3 adults and 3 older teenagers. We all found something to love. The food was delicious and the cooking process was fun and simple to understand. Each course was unique. We had cheese fondue (loved the Mediterranean), salad (favorite was the spinach and strawberry), entrée (especially enjoyed the scallops) and chocolate dessert (We all moaned with pleasure!) Our server was wonderful - informative, helpful, and sweet. Our only complaint was the coffee. We ordered decaf at the end of the meal, and it was barely drinkable. At $3.25 a cup, I was greatly disappointed. That said, we will definitely be back, just not for coffee.

    With the multiple selections available between the salads, the cheeses, the meats, and oh my gosh... the chocolates, Simply Fondue is a great change of pace. Be careful! This place could easily become habit forming. An excellent place to invite your friends, reward employees, or entertain clients. A great experience awaits anyone who makes a reservation at this place!

    The desert is great... it is too expensive to have to cook your own food... at the same point it is not very good. the meat has no flavor it tastes like grease. The bacon wrapped flilet I can make a better one at home. The bacon did not even come out crispy. I was very disappointed in the food compared to the price. The only reason I would go back would be for the desert.

    Great food.Great experience. It was a great time for my wife and I on our birthday. It was just pricey, even with a Group on. By the time you pay the bill and taxes and tip. It is still about 100 without alcohol. Great food, great experience. The background noise wad a little loud but that is my fault since I never mentioned that to our waiter.

    I'm reviewing Simply Fondue Very Good because the food was outstanding and our waiter was very nice. However, when we got there our bowl where the cheese went was a little dirty so they had to replace it, when I got my desert plate it was dirty and then a family that sat down beside us had a baby that cried and screamed almost the whole time. We asked to move tables and it was no problem at all. Plus, we kept our same waiter. They didn't comp anything but gave us 2 free glasses of champagne; which was nice but, he game it to us right after our entire meal, so we were so full we couldn't drink it. In the end, would we go back, yes. The food was amazing.

    I had never been here before, I purchased a Groupon for this restaurant because I always wanted to try it. the food was good a bit pricey for the amount you are given and I didn't know that you had to cook your own food so I think that was a bit surprising and off putting for me, now that maybe fun for others. I feel for the price they should be doing everything. but in the end we enjoyed our dinning experience and we may go back again, oh they do have complimentary valet so that was great

    My wife and I love this place and it is a special place to us. We did the 4 course meal. The cheddar cheese fondue was outstanding, though I wish they would put more goodies to dip (they use to do more a few years ago). The wedge salad and strawberry salad were very good. The real showcase was the meat fondue. They do a fantastic job of seasoning the meat and you don't lose the flavor in the oil fondue. They also provide other great goodies like ravioli and stuffed mushrooms which are fantastic. The raspberry cabernet chocolate fondue I highly recommend. The service was not bad, but was better a few years ago when we went. It was a little slow and bland at times.

Hostess was wonderful - and bartender was quick to recommend a great wine. Our server, Drew, was great and made wonderful recommendations. Be aware if you so the special - it's a lot of food...

    Part of an excellent dining experience is your wait staff, and ours was exceptional! Definitely call for reservations. Our group had children. . . we ate on a Sunday where kids eat free for each adult meal bought. It was a bargain! It is a dining experience and allow the full 2.5 hours they recommend to get the full effect. While all the food was exceptional except in portion sizes, the chocolate fondue was to die for. I think that the meats are a little small in quanity. The dipping sauces could stand updating. Definitely will look forward to another visit.

    To start it off, we went to simply fondue for my wife's birthday. The waiter started off by attempting to guess my wife's age...... And guessed many years older than she is. So, that set the tone for the rest of the evening. The food was average and didn't really taste good. The service was below par as we had to wait for our tea to be refilled several times when they were empty. We won't be going back.

    Food was very good. The service was good. I seldom have a comment regarding the price of good food. Although it was a good experience I have a hard time paying 18 dollars for a bowl of hot cheese, served with bread and vegetables. When you think about it the preparation and the overhead is very minimal. So with that being said a nice place for a special occasion. I would recommend this as a special occasion date.

    Went to the fw simply fondue after purchasing a fifty dollar gift card. The food and service was great until the check came. Simply Fondue did not honor the gift card as purchased. The manager came to the table and told me they will not honor the fifty but will only honor the card for thirty. He stated that they would eat there lunch if they did. So after spending over 100 dollars at simply fondue fw they did not honor the gift card as purchased. Would not recommend after this experience.

    This location looks like a little bistro from the outside but as you follow the arrows down the stairs to the sub-basement location with the black-painted plumbing and HVAC pipes for the entire building above you, you grow more and more confused. The red-jacketed employees ducking in and out of anonymous rooms did not help alleviate the confusion. The stolen 15% gratuity for a party of 2 did nothing to make this experience more positive.

    We had reservations for 730pm but did not even see a hostess until 745pm. There were numerous other people waiting for the hostess as well so we were not even seated for another 5-10 mins. Our waiter was not the best. He kept forgetting to take our empty plates, leaving our table very cluttered. The food was very ordinary - I still cannot believe that we paid $170 for what essentially was queso, decent meats, and a little bit of chocolate. I would not recommend this place to anyone, unless they just really like to make their own fondue. But even in that case, I'd recommend finding a way to do it yourself and save a ton of money.
