Simply Fondue - Mission Viejo

Our server was very knowledgeable and offered suggestions when asked. The food was great and am already planning for next time! My favorite food.... everything.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUS FONDUES FOR ROMANTICSA 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!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery PleasedFood was outstanding, from the very fresh spinach and strawberry salad, to the rocky road chocolate fondue.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!We were very pleased!

Our waiter was outstanding and added to the experience. Definitely left full.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first fondue experienceThis 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.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!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.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I had a wonderfulMy wife and I had a wonderful time, the food was excellent the service was great, we had a great time and yes, we would return. The server made it fun and we both enjoyed the evening.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe four course meal offersThe 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.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSEAN ROCKS!Best fondue around, Sean is the best server by far.

I had never been there and our server was so great helping me decide what to get. Loved the atmosphere. Definitely would come back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe stumbled upon this restaurantWe 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.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place! Need goggles.Great food, great experience. Ventalation needs improvement. Been there twice, and both times, the steam and smoke from the grill and pots eventually irritates your eyes. They need to improve the airflow... Other than that, great!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBeats its competition hands down!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!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was very helpfulOur waiter was very helpful and explained everything about the meal.

We enjoyed fabulous food and great conversation.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was amazing. NotOur server was amazing. Not only was this a place for true epicureans or those looking to just enjoy a superb meal, but the whole setting was friendly, upbeat, and left us immediately sharing our accolades of the experience with friends. First of all, for fondue, the prices were the best we have ever encountered. For what's included in the price, it is well worth it. Our sever was very accommodating and personable. A band came into the bar later on for live music, and the entire ambiance of the place was perfect for both dates, cocktails or dinner with friends, or just a night out for good food with family.
You will need to make reservations in advance, particularly if you want to go in on the weekends. However, it's completely worth it3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOn a scale of 1-10 it wasOn a scale of 1-10 it was a clear 15! Great menu options and the restaurant name, (Simply Fondue) belies the originality and flavor choices on the menu! Fun AND tasty!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply AmazingOur 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.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply Fondue is a delightSimply Fondue is a delight to the eyes and to the tastebuds! Great for a romantic date.

We would so go there again, in fact are planning a double date with friends soon!! We loved all of the choices that we had. Our waitress was VERY helpful, we loved the fact that she took the time needed for us to make informed choices, that were DELICIOUS - MAJOR YUMMO!!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne thing I particularly likeOne thing I particularly like about Simply Fondue is that for the meat entrée you can choose between traditional fried in oil fondue, broth fondue or grilling the meat and veggies. There is a wide selection of different cheese fondues as well as a whole separate menu to describe the dessert choices.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love Fondue you willIf you love Fondue you will love Simply Fondue.

It is a great time with my son, we talk we eat we enjoy. The staff is always very friendly and food of course is delicious1/1/0001 4:00:00 PMDeliciousThe food was AMAZING. I had the spinach strawberry salad which was to die for (and I'm NOT a salad eater), we then ate the Tillamook cheese which was fantastic, followed by the Grilled option with: Prawns, BBQ Chicken, Beef tenderloin and ahi tuna; all of which were melt in your mouth fantastic. It was really fun to cook them yourself and is an interactive dating experience. The dessert was heavenly as well even though we stuck with the traditional milk chocolate. I LOVE SIMPLY FONDUE.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
