Very Fun atmosphere and excellent service, the problem was the food was bland and the fondue was thin, pot pie had no flavor. Flat bread was good, but not stunning.

Everything I've had there has been wonderful. It was a birthday lunch and the waiter went out of his way to come up with a dessert that was dairy free for me which turned out to be fruit and chocolate fondue -amazing. Their service is impeccable!

We had an amazing date night here. Beautiful little place. The owner gave me a flower crown that lights us and it was pretty. Also, before leaving the owner talked to us and let us try some samples of Mead since we have never even heard of it. I suggest the blackberry one! The prices are expensive for what we got ( we did the full dining experience with the fondue) but no complaints other then price. Jennifer our waitress was awesome!

The place only had one other couple and many booths were available. We asked to sit at a certain one and was told they were saving it in case they had a birthday party. No one came in the 45 minutes that we were there. The pizza was BBQ pork and there is no way this was the case. The pizza came out quickly so it must have been pre-made or frozen. The cheese fondue was either watery or hard so that you couldn’t dip the bread. It fell apart in the fondue. This place was very expensive for the quality of food. I will not return or recommend to anyone!

This was such a fun place. Everyone super friendly and the fondue was excellent. Loved the filet and shrimp. The chocolate fondue was so good. The Mead flight is definitely worth a try if you have never had.

They accommodated 2 more in our arty with virtually no notice. We had the 4-course fondue special, and it was wonderful and fun for our young son! Staff was super friendly and the owner even came around to check on us. Definitely planning to go back soon!

Loved the music (Stephen Sanchez). The appetizer (chicken kabob) was very excellent but only two skewers and only two pieces of chicken on each?? Lori ordered her filet migon medium rare, as did I. Hers was fine. She enjoyed everything about her (birthday) dinner. Mine was well done, not medium rare and finishing it was a chore, not at all enjoyable. I did not want to spoil the occasion so I did not send it back nor mention it. The scallops had a fishy taste to them. The shrimp was fine even though there were but three. Enjoyed the cheesy mashed potatoes. Someones well behaved white dog kept coming by and annoyed me with several tail wag hits. Too many flies, but ignored this in my 'ambiance' rating. It is just a necessary (covid) compromise. Did not like the osculating fan on the table directly across. I took great health risks to be there (very compromised immune system) and was mostly maskless to facilitate eating.

On Saturday night July 18, 2020 we arrived in front of the restaurant for our 6:30pm reservation which had been confirmed through Open Table. We were dismayed to discovered the door was locked and butcher paper covered all the windows!  I called them and the phone rang until I had to leave a voicemail.  I left a message and no one called me back.  Thank goodness while wandering back to our car we spotted a restaurant with outside dining set up in front.  We asked if they had any openings and they said 7:15pm. We were relieved and willing to wait the 45 minutes to have a nice meal and a pleasant evening. It's a shame the restaurant didn't (or couldn't) notify Open Table that they had to close due to Covid requirements. Please note that all of my reviews are based on not being able to dine there.

Realize this is during COVID-19 times. This is the third time that I've attempted to make a reservation. Twice on the phone and now on OpenTable via the restaurant website. There was an automated confirmation of reservation the night before and I confirmed. When we arrived, the restaurant was closed. It would have been nice for owners to send out an email stating as much.
The other two phone reservations, the restaurant was actually open but were not convincing that they'd be able to seat us (party of three - party of four: two different attempts). I hope you can stay in business during these trying times. And, cannot provide a high rating. We went somewhere else and will not continue to try to dine at this establishment.

Very cute establishment! The servers were very polite and fast and the atmosphere was awesome. Went with a friend but agreed would be fun with a big group of people. I hear they have live music some nights so when restaurants open back up I will be attending that!

The hostess was not very friendly when we arrived and we were sat a table where we couldn't get the fondue so we had to move elsewhere. I suggest requesting a booth beforehand if possible. It was also warm inside and did not cool down. Anyway we were reseated and our server was Shane. He was awesome. He made everything better and so did the bartender. One other thing I would suggest is doing away with the TV screens or turning them off. They take away from the ambiance. Overall it was a special experience and I would go again as long as I could get a booth.

Overall, we had a nice dinner. Our waiter, Shane, was outstanding (and my teenager girls thought very cute!) The first table we were seated at - the light (river) didn't work so I asked to move to another table. They were out of scallops and lobster so that kinda was a bummer for our fondue. But, that said, the place had a cute ambiance and was a different and fun dinner out.

It was ok we had the Fondue. The cheese fondue was tasty but the bread would fall apart too easily. Also the cheese would not adhere to some of the fondue items such as carrots, celery and apples. Maybe a creamier cheese and harder denser bread would work better. The main entree was nice but we had trouble keeping items on the skewer. The fillet and the shrimp work best. I was also surprised and disappointed none of the staff were wearing masks as required by state order. I recognize their right to make that decision but I believe they should make that clear at time of reservation since it is mandatory State wide. I would have let all my group know ahead of time to make sure everyone was comfortable with this had I known before hand.

Loved the magical vibe. My daughter took one step into the restaurant and decided she wanted to have her birthday party at that location. Unfortunately, we live three hours away, but I think we’re going to make a weekend out of it.

We came for an early lunch with my kids and my mom and aunt. Everything from the adorable decor to the service was above and beyond our expectations. We had crepes, and fondue, and pizzas. Everything was so good. Our food was delivered quickly and the waiter was very friendly. We all got light up fairy crowns. My daughter had the best birthday ever! We will be back for sure.. Also all of the menu prices were very affordable. We also had fun at Vibes up the shop next door after our dinner.

This was one of the funnest date nights we have ever had. The ambiance is amazing, it's like walking right into a forest. The tables have lights in them that make it look like water, and the food was excellent! Perfectly cooked filet migon and the chicken caprice was mouth watering, tender and delicious. Perfect portions and the mead is a must try!

The atmosphere was such a fun and delightful experience. The wait staff were working hard since they had just re-opened and were accommodating for social distancing as well as placement for people. The food was really good and the experience overall was outstanding. We'll definitely be recommending this place and going back next time we're in Placerville!
