The experience was wonderful! At first we were given what had to be the worst table in the entire place, but after requesting another table we were moved. (I made the reservations 6 weeks in advance -no way I was sitting at the worst seat in the house - maybe if I had just walked in off the street ...) Our server, Jonathan, was great - very personable (even though he forgot to put in my drink order --- it happens :-) I would suggest foregoing to Jack Cheese fondue - though Jonathan swears it is normally very good and made with real cheese, it just seemed a bit processed. I'd also skip the Lime Tequilla shrimp - I like salty, but these were overly salty by a lot. If not for these reasons I';d have given 5 stars as the experience was great and we were treated well!

There was a time I would recommend Simply Fondue to anybody who inquired, but after this visit that has changed. The food offered in the bar was not available to all customers only those in the bar. Fondue was offered to all. My group wanted to order some sliders with their fondue but were unable. Also, they did not have enough help on the Monday I was there. The server put the base in the fondue to warm and by the time she was able to come back half of it was evaporated. The cheese was gritty and lacked the taste remembered.
Our waitress was excellent, kind, attentive, and efficient in a very busy atmosphere. I don't fault her for our disappointment. The management needs to look over their menu and core staff numbers.

Good bar, overpriced menu. Very loud and noisy dining room. Could clearly hear everyone else’s conversation. Swiss Cheese Fondue not very good. Had to order 3 minimum for the oil fondue and sauces not very good. Had to go once to see it but won’t go back!

We’ve been here before and knew not to waste time with the salads. But this time, since the cheese and chocolate are our favorites, we decided to have 2 cheese fondues and no meat entree. That way we had room for the chocolate fondue. Side note: I recommend the antipasto add-on for the cheese fondue.

Frankly, the food was abysmal. Serving a small bowl of huge poorly cut rock hard crunchy vegetables to dip in a acrid cheese mix is not worth even one dollar. It was absolutely unacceptable. The vegetables came right out of a restaurant depot bag and they were way too large for one bite and they weren’t even steamed a little bit they were hard and crunchy there was no effort made. Lazy lazy chef. In addition, the vegetable mix to dip in the acrid cheese included many pickles and cocktail pearl onions. What on earth was that about?

Our server was horrible! We had to ask to order drinks, he did not ask us. Burnt our chocolate and we had to ask him to stir in the sprinkles (funfetti) when we asked him to stir he grabbed my friends poker aggressively off her plate and started stirring. A poker she had been using from the cheese we had prior, he couldn’t go to the back and grab a spoon? He wasn’t personable which wouldn’t normally cause me to be appalled by the service but what he did and how he acted was absolutely horrifying and not what you would expect from a place like this... very dissapointing. The manager did take of 50% from the chocolate but at that point the damage was done.

I can't recommend this place because their fondue pricing is outrageous. Our server was very sweet and attentive, the ambiance fine-a little dark. The fondue was good...but not great. The portions of bread/veggies very small based a $26/per person per cheese serving. I met a friend for dinner-2 drinks each and 2 shared pots of cheese came to about $130 with tip. CRAZY, even for downtown Livermore, where all the newest restaurants have jacked up prices.

Ashley, our waitress, was fantastic - great attitude and many helpful hints for cooking. Cheese and Chocolate fondues very tasty but meat courses are not good. Way too much money for the meats. Cuban beef was the most flavorful of the lot - we had fried chicken, coconut shrimp, bacon wrapped tenderloin, lemon pepper chicken, teriyaki chicken to name a few. Their side sauces need to be rethought because they really didn't complement any of the meats and most were wasteful. Dining was comfortable and the service was great!
