Overall really enjoyed the experience. Nice ambiance. Service was so-so. Waitress was not the most friendly. Seemed annoyed at times. Food was great. Asked another server to take a picture of our group. Also seemed annoyed. Food and overall experience outweighed our grumpy servers.

Went in for our anniversary, nothing special came from mentioning this, so not sure why we were asked. Louder than expected, difficult to have a conversation.
Was not thrilled with the triple push to make a donation, especially when spending $200+ on meal and not even recognized for the occassion.

Had a reservation for 7 - they tried to seat us in 2 booths. Only when I approached did they did move us to another table - we had to squeeze in but it was better than the former. Showed waitress one coupon we would be using and she stated she would apply along with 2 other couple military discounts. It was a different experience but could have been better explained as we were 1st timers. We just ended up ordering the same thing for the most part. When bill presented she said she couldn’t use coupon because our order wasnt exactly what was listed although she knew we had the coupon and went over what we could order. We didnt argue but better communication needs to occur with guests. Dont plan on returning. Our waitress was very nice but I feel may have been new or should have took responsibility of the coupon.

Me encanta este restaurante, lo único que me cae un poco mal, es que cada vez que vamos, aunque tenga reservación y tengan muchas mesas disponibles, hacen esperar mucho tiempo para pasarnos a nuestra mesa

It you want cheese fondue this place will be good. The menu and pricing is very confusing. The meat is not fun for me. It comes out raw and you have to cook it. Not what I wanted to do when I go out to relax.

The staff was great and friendly. The food options were terrific. I especially like that there is an area separate from the rest of the dining room for privacy. Great for dates or special occasions like our anniversary.

We always love going here with a few couples for special occasions. Both my husband and I have September birthdays so we received emails for a special call ahead promotion for chocolate dipped strawberries. I did this a few days before and when we checked in I again confirmed the strawberries.
We We’re seated and a birthday card was presented to my husband signed by the staff. It was as always a nice gesture they offer. We ordered, laughed through a great dinner and dessert came and went with no special strawberries presented. All three couples signed our bills and still nothing. I excused myself and went to ask the manager what happend -he said let me take care of it ... A man then approached our table and with no wel wishes said here’s your strawberries-LIKE IT WAS A BURDEN FOR HIM-Weare talking 3 tabs well over $200 each ! I handed them to my husband wishes him a very happy birthday and excised myself to find the MOST SENIOR MANAGER PRESENT WHICH WAS THE RUDE MAN THAT BROUGHT THEM TO OUR TABLE! I told him the was rude and ruined a perfectly good night with his lack of appreciation for our loyal business. Also noted that he was rude after we had paid our tabs and tipped out his staff!

Sadly this was one couples first time there and an awful experience to end the evening. It’s not likely we will return! Sad as we truly like the fondue experience. I only wish the kind owner was there!

If you haven't been here before, you definitely want your waiter to guide you through the experience.
I don't know what was better, the cheese or the chocolate fondue. I recommend getting an extra serving of chocolate for the dessert.

This was our first time, but it will not be our last. At first we were a bit overwhelmed with the menu and it’s options, but our waitress, Lauren, made some recommendations and she was spot-on! We were surprised by the quality of the food. The cheeses, meats, and deserts were delicious! Lauren was very friendly and helped to make our first time experience wonderful!
