Simply Fondue Livermore
Excellent service at Simply FondueAfter being given a recommendation, by a friend, to dine at Simply Fondue, I decided to make a reservation for my wedding anniversary. The recommendation was definitely correct. Simply Fondue was a very nice place to spend an evening with my wife. The food selection was a bit daunting at first, but our server was able to explain the options.
The bartender also gets kudos for the excellent Mr. Belvedere martini that he made.
We chose the Fondue Feast and were very pleased with all the courses.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful mealWe have been to Simply Fondue many times over the years and its consistently wonderful. Our last minute Open Table reservation got us in to celebrate a belated Mother's Day family dinner. We were seated immediately and our waitress Christina was delightfully attentive. She took great care of us throughout the entire meal. Extra dippers were eagerly given and consumed. We had 2 cheese fondues and 2 chocolate ones which was the perfect amount of food for our group of four. Like the touch of being able to flambé our marshmallows before dipping. Great selection of dippers the entire meal was delicious. We always look forward to coming back.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationMake sure you save room for dessert. It was sooooo good!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time experienceOur waiter Peter assisted us ordering as this was our first time visit. The meal and experience was fantastic.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive but fun. Best for dessertI think this is a great find for a medium-sized group 3 - 5 people. They offer a lot of food, but it is quite expensive. Overall, if you can manage it, try to come for dessert as that's the best part of the meal and the most cost-effective. If you are willing to spend $50 - 60 a person (with food, dessert, drinks) this is a good spot.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy husband and I went for the first time to Simply Fondue for our 12th Wedding Anniversary dinner..The ombiance was fantastic. Loved the feel and mood of this restaurant. Our waiter was amazing. Very friendly and informative about the menu and how it all worked. He was very attentive to our needs. Atmosphere was very cool and relaxing. The food was awesome. Definatly, we left super full.
I for sure recommend this restaurant to everyone. Its fun to cook up your own stuff how you like it... The whole experience was amazing.....6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst experienceI took my fiancé here as a date night. We walked in and checked out the guest's around us. The food on the tables looked delicious. We had read reviews that portions were small. Well, they are but I woulnt have it any other way. Small portions of lots of different types of food. The cheese appetizer fortina was savory. You get your melted cheese and a bowl of veggies and a second bowl of bread squares for dipping. The best dipped item was grapes and apples. My favorite was the pepper beef and maple beef. Tender chunks of meet that you grill yourself on a burner in front of you. Chocolate dessert was decadent. Great assortment of goodies was given rice crispies, cheese cake, marshmallow, strawberries etc.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFOOD FOR FUNFrom the front desk welcome to the excellent drink service in the bar to our pair of waitresses, everything was enjoyable. As first time visitors, they cheerfully explained what the various options were and offered recommendations. We ordered the Fondue Sampler, and had more than enough food for all four of us. One couple opted for the cheese course, and the other did the dessert course, both which satisfied all of us. We did the traditional oil fondue and the grill, and had more meat, seafood and vegetables that we could finish. Definitely looking forward to a return visit.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing fondue placeSimply Fondue is super cute inside and has great food! It is expensive, however it is definitely worth the price.

And great service from Travis!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingEverything about this place was amazing - the food, the Martini and Wine list, the service, the ambiance. Every part of it. I can't wait to go back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BirthdayThe food was all fantastic and with the reservation and it being a Tuesday night meant that my girlfriend and I had a room to ourselves for the majority of the experience. It was a bit pricey but we ordered the four course meal that easily could have fed 4-5 people and even after 6 drinks and our two oversized meals and a healthy tip we paid less than $200. We had several drinks and tons of food all of which was good. I had a fantastic birthday and have returned within a week for happy hour to enjoy a cheaper and more realistic sized food portions 4 drinks and a normal portion of food for around $50.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and uniqueGreat fun with our out of town guests!
A bit on the pricey side. Worth it for an interactive
meal. Our waiter was very helpful .5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice execution-classier than othersWhile apparently part of a several store franchise network, this was our first experience with "Simply Fondue." Past experience with a larger multi-store fondue network had usualy left us feeling stuffed, plump, and poor. This place seemed a lot classier in many ways including because they didn't seem fixated on pushing just their mega-everything package. We had cheese fondue to start (the portion struck us initially as small but as we moved on to the next thing, it ended up seeming just fine). The salads were good -- not afterthoughts. We opted for the Sangria fondue which was neither calorie-rich nor sugary. Also, perhaps due to their Livermore wine country location, wine list had a great mix of local wines and was reasonably priced.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMptown dinerLOVE this place! Cooking your own food and dining together combines dinner & entertainment in one! And the fact that the food is fresh & excellent is just a bonus!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother awesome time!Another great time at Simply Fondue. We love this place and have been there many times. This time we had Becca as a server, and she was great! Always love the ambiance, and their wine list is only out-done by their martini list. (over 100 martini's on menu)4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good and theThe food was good and the courses were spread out enough to make you not feel rushed to get the next course on the table.

Over 2 hours when you go through all the courses - SO YUMMY. Salad served first (your choice) and then cheese fondue (with veg and bread to dip), followed by meats and veg's you prepare yourself, finishing off with chocolate fondue (all kinds of goodies to dip in the chocolate). With 4 of us at the table we got to choose 2 different cheese fondues, 2 different meat preps and 2 different chocolate fondues. First time there - will not be my last.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was great and weOur dinner was great and we had a nice time celebrating our Wedding Anniversary.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Special Occasion PlaceWide range of sweet martinis...if you can;t make up your mind on a single drink, order the flight of martinis4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Fondue was the perfectSimply Fondue was the perfect spot for my family to gather and celebrate my Daughters 21st birthday.

Cooking at your own table - what fun! And every course was absolutely delicious. We had the best waiter who even lit our chocolate so we could roast our marshmallows before dipping. We had such a terrific time! From start to finish it was a fantastic experience. They even let us linger with coffee after 2-1/2 hrs of eating. It has become my favorite special place.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food and experience!Quite a lot of food for 2 women. Probably just right for a man and a woman. Wonderful food!

The Sharp Cheddar cheese fondue was yummy and was served with bread and veggies for dipping. The beef was high quality and came with a variety of marinades and dipping sauces, along with veggies. We chose the grill method, where you cook the meat on an oiled grill pan at the table. Loved the extensive martini list. Service was excellent. A little pricey, but worth it.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love coming there !!! WeWe love coming there !!! We always have a wonderful time! !!!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy yummy yummy.I love this place. The only draw back is the tight booth seats. I took a friend for her birthday. It was her first time dining at Simply Fondue and she loved it. They give a glass of champagne for birthdays, but they bring it after we have finished after we have finished our meal. It would be better to have it during the meal.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is excellentThe restaurant is excellent and the good is great but it's expensive!
