  • great date night

    My boyfriend and I had a great date night here. The food is great, and our server Sean was quite wonderful. I can't wait to go again. Only set back was the music. They had live music but it was a little too loud to talk comfortably at our table.

    This is a great place to dine and have a conversation. We went with another couple and were able to visit for a couple of hours while enjoying a variety of foods. Previously my wife and I went for a quiet "get away" evening with the same result. The staff is friendly and courteous. We plan to return again soon.

  • FABULOUS FONDUES FOR ROMANTICS
    hawaiicouple
    Dined on 4/23/2013
    A wonderful restaurant, romantic ambiance, fabulous cheese fondue -- Traditional Swiss Chalet, my favorite. We appreciated the generous amount of grated cheese. The gorgonzola field greens salad was beautifully presented and delicious. The Millionaire's chocolate fondue was rich and sweet with rich milk chocolate and caramel. Service was excellent but I did have to ask for the walnuts which was supposed to be included with the Millionaire's fondue. It was brought quickly. Say "Yes!" if you are asked if you like to roast marshmellows, as brandy will be poured on all the marshmellows, one is lit which then lights yours and then the whole chocolate bowl flames up with a fiery blue flame - fantastic! A meal to remember!

    we liked the cheese fondue and the chocolate but I recommend that the food be prepared in the kitchen. the smell and smoke inside the restaurant was horrible. we had to go back home and shower right away and wash our clothes. It took us 3 hours to finish our meal and the kids were tired and said never again.

    This was my first fondue experience and it was amazing. Our waiter Ashley was simply perfect. She was a great teacher and helped us get through the meal with cooking times and everything. We are already saving up for our next visit. Some of the best food that I've had in a long time.

    We had great service on our visit. The waitress was very helpful with suggestions and even remade our cheese fondue when she wasn't happy with how the cheese was melting (too much beer). She brought us more dippers on the cheese and dessert rounds. Although we were not in the bar, we could hear the live music (folky, almost Grateful Dead-like), and the bar area seemed to be hopping. It was nice to see in this quiet neighborhood-centered location. There are a lot of great deals for this restaurant (we used a Groupon), so I would suggest looking around so you don't pay full price.

    Dined on 4/17/2013
    Overall, the experience of the restaurant was fun and the service was great. However, being Swiss, I may be more critical than most. The "Swiss" fondue did not taste as if it were made with Switzerland Swiss cheeses. The kitchen has quite a liberal hand with the sugar bowl: everything was tooth achingly sweet! (the dressings, the sauces for dipping) Worth going to once, doubt I'll return!

    The four course meal offers lots of choice. Before our meal, our waitress thoroughly explained the details of fondue dining ( esp. if that is your first visit and you are new to fondue dining).... The different combinations /selection of the fondue dips and the hand-on approach to cooking your own food at the table makes it a fun dining experience for the adults and kids. We love the mediterranean cheese fondue dip. The chocolate fondue for dessert course pleased my kids tremendously as well. Everyone get to try/eat something they like.

    We stumbled upon this restaurant a while ago on a "let's try this place" night out and we were hooked. It is a hidden gem. It was so good we weren't sure if we wanted to tell people about it or keep it to ourselves. We enjoy dimply fondue so much we figured it wasn't fair to not tell our friends and families. It is a fun place for date night or for a dinner out with some friends. Great service, great food, and great ambiance. Simply Fondue is so good and the word has spread, make sure you plan ahead and make reservations well in advance.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/5/2013
    We went to this restaurant because we had received a Groupon as a gift. It is a fun concept to cook your own dinner at your table for a one time experience. We each started with a glass of house wine (just ok)and a salad. The wedge salad was a nice size and very tasty. The cheese fondue was made at the table and we were given tiny pieces of bread and relish items to dip. Not too exciting. The meat you cook yourself. We chose to "grill" ours, but instead it was in a fry pan with oil. We each had 2 pieces of shrimp, chicken, ahi and beef. The last course we chose was a Bailey's chocolate fondue to dip our tiny pieces of fruit, cake and marshmallows in. Overall, small portions to share. We left with our clothes smelling like the cooking oils.

    Wow is about all I can say. We've been so impressed with Simply Fondue. It outshines it's competition in so many ways, and we've been to the "other" fondue place all over the country. We like the food selection here much better. The grill cooking choice is really nice and a great option for healthier food but still maintains a lot of flavor. If you do the grill be aware that the garlic they want to add at the beginning will seriously burn, so we leave it out. And also know that the sweet potatoes take the longest to cook so put them in first. We've liked every meat we have chosen. Also, they have a "Light" option that isn't on the menu which includes cheese, salad and chocolate so you might want to ask about that. YUMMY YUMMY!!

    Our first experience at this restaurant, although we've been to several other fondue places, this was the best by far. The food options are immense, something for everyone. We had a Groupon offer which was too good to turn down but we wouldn't hesitate to go back and pay full price. Endless fondue refills....that's simply amazing.
