I am a long time VIP member and really love your restaurant. I believe in providing honest feedback so establishments know what their customers are thinking. There was a group of 6 people and 2 children standing around the tables taking after their meal. The children were running around other tables (where dinners were seated) without masks. The parents were ignoring them. This went on for 15 or so minutes right before my table became available. I asked the hostesses to seat us as far from where they had been as possible and said if the only option was where they had been, we could just cancel. They were very nice about it. But I think they were struggling with the situation. In this case, I don’t think it should be left to the younger employees to make sure diners are following the COVID rules. A manager should be watching the tables and taking care of these issues.

This was my first experience and we absolutely loved it! It was a tad confusing on how to order but once our waitress explained it to us we were good to go! I absolutely loved the dessert fondue, 10/10 recommend!

Me and my husband come here on all of our date nights! Jackson was our server and he made the experience amazing. We’ve been there multiple times but this one was by far the best because of the service. Foods always amazing. Atmosphere is on point.

The waiter took a long time to bring requested items such as straws, and additional dipping items. Also we had been multiple times to this establishment and had received slightly better portion sizes. We had a double serving and a single serving of cheese fondue and the double was definitely not double what the single was which was also smaller than we remembered. But it was delicious all the same.

For the price I would expect the veggies to be ultra fresh and appealing, which they weren’t. The bread cubes were unevenly cut and some were smashed. The meats were great but the price is so high ALL the food should be top notch. And the presentation is lacking. You want us to pay top tier, you need to deliver top tier.

First time going to Simply Fondue which I was celebrating a 10 year anniversary with my wife.
Great service the waiter was very helpful at making sure we picked something from the menu that we both would like. We ordered the fast which was 4 course meal and all I can say is WOW! everything was yummy and I'm still craving the dessert course lol. We will definitely be back for more.

Our daughter had found simply Fondue by accident. For her birthday, and her daughters birthday they wanted to try it again. This was a 60 miles drive, but well worth it. Our waiter was super attentive and a delight to be served by. All four courses were wonderful, having 4 people, we had a greater choice of options. Only complaint...we were stuffed when we left. Only issue, and a minor one, no recognition of the 2 birthday's we were celebrating. Location was easy to find, but parking is a challenge for those out of town...we got lucky with a street spot within a block.

Wasn’t impressed with service. Waiter was rude and extremely slow. Gave us our check without asking if we wanted desert which we did. Then brought chocolate out and it was cold. We were there just a little under 3 hours. 3 hours is too long for a lunch. Won’t be going back when other fondue places are much better and not so slow.

First time trying out Simply Fondue in Livermore. Pretty neat experience. Service is very slow. We spent over 2 hours here! Our server was a pleasant, funny guy. The foos was great and abundant. We couldn’t finish everything. We got “The Feast.” A ton of options for two people. Overall, we enjoyed our time here.

Did the Fondue Feast for my family of 4 and it was NOT worth it. Could (should) have spent the same amount on a better dinner at Ruth's Chris. Salad was nothing special. Cheese fondues were good. Entree selections and cooking styles were confusing especially since you have to COOK YOUR OWN FOOD in either oil or butter. By the time our chocolate fondue came we were super full and bloated. Left smelling like the kitchen and feeling gross. Not returning except for MAYBE the chocolate fondue after we've eaten somewhere better.

The front desk didn't have my reservation from Open Table, even though I showed them my confirmation 3 times. The person at the front desk was rude and wanted to take my phone to the back. The manager that came was also rude and didn't even apologize once they realized I DID have a reservation. The manager even interrupted the meal to say that she found the reservation finally still without apologizing for the error and with attitude. Our server, Kim, was amazing and sweet which made the night.
Overall completely overpriced for the lack of flavor in the broth and burnt chocolate. Don't waste $100 on this place... Much better options in downtown without a rude manager and front desk staff.
I only left a tip because of the server, if not for her, I would have walked out.

OMG! We are JUST leaving SF and are on cloud 9. We were celebrating our anniversary. Jacob was our server and was amazing. He was very relaxed and welcoming, knowledgeable of the menu and great with the suggestions. We are a family of 7 and are looking forward to bringing our kids the next time out. Thank Jacob for making our anniversary dinner a special one.

One side note, the hostesses were not the most welcoming couple of young ladies, kinda standoffish, not inviting. Glad we pushed through it and was seated in his section. Looking forward to our next visit.
