We've been wanting to try this as it's close to the Bankhead so convenient for dinner before a show. We had salad and cheese fondue. The salads were quite good. The Swiss and Maple Bacon Cheddar fondues were cheesy goodness. All in all a good meal. We each had a couple glasses of wine, which seemed pretty expensive for what was poured ($60 for 4 glasses of decent, not fantastic, white wine). All in all we may go back, but it seems a bit steep for what we got.

We came here for the first time over the weekend with our 2 boys 4 and 9. We all enjoyed the unique experience. You are there 2-2.5 hours and the boys were getting antsy the last hour, but other than that, our waiter was great, super friendly, and great with recommendations and explaining the menu and process! Will definitely return for a date night without kids!

A horrible experience from the moment we walked in throughout dinner. As a mother of two children, we had arranged for a babysitter as my brother and sister in law were in town and we wanted to take them to one of our favorite restaurants (Simply Fondue). The babysitter backed out so it was late evening and we put the kids to sleep and brought them in- in their car seat asleep and were shamed for bringing in kids with us. The waiter reinforced it by stating they cannot take liability for a kid sleeping in a car seat and that the child had to be in the high chair (our kids were asleep we are not going to wake them up to put them in a high chair). Service continued to deteriorate as he ignored us much of the evening and we would have to wait a long period of time to get bread or veggies for the fondue. He would walk right by our table without even checking in to see if we needed more food or drinks. I was sorely disappointed. The food is good, but not worth it for the price and really poor service!! I will not be coming back here again.

We come here every year for our anniversary. Service was terrible on Friday night. We had to flag down our waitress to obtain the bill. She was sitting at a table right next to us for a good 10 mins. Our drink order was wrong too.

Sunday evening my son and I had dinner at fondue and everything was amazing. Our server Haley went above and beyond to explain what meat selections would cook best with what cooking style, price point, drink options, she was extremely attentive even though she was triple sat ( I know how that can be) she had vast menu knowledge and was friendly through our whole experience. The food is always good but service can be iffy. Haley insured we will be coming back!

Lovely dinner for our 9 year anniversary! Our server was absolutely amazing. I think his name was Jay? I wish I could remember his name so he could be praised. He had such a fun attitude and made my boyfriend and I laugh and have a great time. Food was delicious and very filling! The martini flight is also a must. This is definitely THE spot for special occasions!

Our server Haley was awesome! Very friendly! And accommodating! She made sure we had enough of everything and even offered to bring more out of something we really enjoyed! We would go back to see her again! The food was wonderful and filling! It was a great way to celebrate my boyfriends birthday!

Overall a decent experience but I did mention in advance my daughters birthday and was not acknowledged. Additionally, on Sundays kids eat free if adults purchase the fondue feast. It was not specified on the board at the entrance that the free meal they get is a fondue meal. We chose the less expense kids menu, assuming that was free. Waiter never explained and when questioned when we got bill made no accommodation.

Our waitress was REALLY awesome! It’s always a pleasure interacting with the Simply Fondue staff in general. Additionally, the food and drinks are always great tasting and wonderful quality. We have no doubt it will continue to be one of our favorite date night spots.

We love coming here for date nights but lately every time we have come which is maybe 1x a month. You pay the same if not more but are getting less food. The spicy pepper cheese is amazing. But the quantity of it have been decreasing a lot!! For the fondue feast....which isn’t cheap, used to be endless meat if you wanted more. Now you have to pay exacta if you want more or a certain meat. So we were pretty disappointed for the amount of money we pay

We where very disappointed in the managmeny sitting on her phone oblivious to what was going on around her. She’d rather be conversing with other servers while the one server on the floor was struggling we had to wait a long time for everything and even had to ask the manager for our check at which time she seemed startled as if she had forgot she was working. We’ve been coming here a lot lately and see this is a trend one server struggling with multiple tables cauaing each party to wait long times while other servers hang out

Such poor service, though our server was attentive, efficient and knowledgeable. He was too familiar, bordering on unprofessional, and it really offended a few in our party. The food was SO salty, and we weren’t given enough instruction on how not to burn all of the meat - a check-back once the meat had been delivered would have been nice. The cocktails were undrinkable, so much sugar in there. We won’t be back.

The food is not as good as it used to be. This used to be our “go to” place for special occasions. Not anymore. High prices do not bother me but high prices with mediocre food does.

The overall experience was good. The food was a little disappointing. They don’t offer a basic cheese that are more kid friendly or main entree options that are kid friendly flavors. I felt pressured to order at min 3 orders of cheese for my kids and I knowing we wouldn’t eat it all and by the time we were done there was a whole pot waisted but that i had to pay for. The main entree items I choose came over seasoned and with the wrong seasoning. My daughter was not able to eat it because it was too spicy. I didn’t much care for it either. When I inquired she checked into it and they did discount my bill for that. I like the place but they should really consider adding more kid friendly options and dial back on the seasoning.

The concept is great, but the price for the food is a bit much! It took us 2.5 hours to get through the Fondue Feast. The only highlight was the chocolate fondue portion.
