We love this place. Visit 3x a year for my boys and my birthdays. My only issue is: we always run out of bread 1/2 way through cheese Fondue and sweets for chocolate Fondue. Then it takes forever to get the waiter to restock and the Fondue sits there getting too hot while we wait. I alway ask for more bread/sweets right away. This time the waiter did it for cheese, but we sat around for 10 minutes during chocolate with nothing to dip....AGAIN.

Relaxing, quiet atmosphere. Excellent variety of meal choices. I loved the spinach and strawberry salad. My wife loved the wedge salad. Classic Swiss Chalet cheese fondue and Hawaiian Dream dessert fondue were delicious and satisfying. Wonderful dining experience. Excellent server.

A few key areas to consider:
1) greeting 1- we walked up to the hostess stand. 3 different employees came to the hostess stand and not one made eye contact. The 4rth person showed us to the table.
2) greeting 2- once we were seated no one came to the table for 15 minutes
3) order - a side order was missing
4) order 2 - we ordered the endless fondue and not once did they ask if we want anything more
5) order 3- our dessert chocolate was cooking for ‘30’ minutes before ready to bring to our table
6) clean up - we prebussed all our tables
7) bill - we paid the bill via credit card abd the server brought another tables itemized bill. When we raised concern that we may have been Mis-charged - the server said they were right and charged us correctly but brought the same receipt for the other table.

All in all a poor experience - unfortunate since we love to go for celebrations.

I have been many times to simply fondue years ago it was much better as the service was much better . The waiter did not explain anything ,sauces or courses it was my boyfriends first time and luckily I have been in the past and could explain .

A big part of the experience is the service - as well as explanation of how it works /and there options especially because the rest is up to you to cook/make

First time dining at Simply Fondue, but it won’t be the last! Our wait person, Bobby was excellent. She welcomed us, explained the menu and was attentive and personable throughout the meal. We had cheese and chocolate fondues and appetizers-all were delicious! The chocolate martini was the icing on the cake!

Ate here years ago and the meal was great. This time around it was just meh. My husband and I did the feast. Salads were excellent. Cheese fondue was good but the bread was cut too small and the veggies too large. Might sound silly but cheese to vessel ratio is important... it’s fondue. The entree choices were lacking in variety. This is where the meal definitely fell short for me. A few more choices of different types of protein really would have made the difference. Then there was dessert. The chocolate fondue, while delicious, it didn’t have enough of the coconut or macadamia nuts that were supposed to elevate the fondue from more than just melted dark chocolate. The accompaniments of the chocolate were sad. Only about of a third of the listed accompaniments came out with the dish. What did come was cut way too small. Not the grand indulgent dessert I remember.

Such an awesome experience. The staff are so cool and personable. The martinis are delicious and we trusted our waitress Taylor to choose for us. There are over 100 martini options. She asked what flavor profiles we like and some flavors we want to stay away from. Wow, just wow. Trust me, don’t drive yourself here. They are way too good to only have one and they definitely pack a punch. The food never disappoints either. The meats are full of flavor, the cheese is heavenly, and there are so many options you are bound to find something you like. This is our favorite “let’s treat ourselves “ place.
I totally recommend Simply Fondue.

Food was excellent and out server was nice. My only complaint is it took a very long time to get our food between courses- especially desert, which was made at the table so not a lot of advance prep.

I was disappointed to see that they had removed some favorites from the menu - bacon wrapped beef and battered chicken. I wish they would bring back the yogurt curry. I still enjoyed our visit but feel that the value is declining.

We had a wonderful dinner experience at Simply Fondue. The waitress was very attentive and had a great personality. The food was worth the price and drinks were awesome. Covid protocols were practiced as each group was spaced at least another table apart. With it being quiet, we were able to enjoy our meal and have uninterrupted conversation.

We had not been to Simply for over a year. While the entree options are diced (understandably), everything was great. The best part of the visit was our interaction with Brendan. His service was timely, on point and personable.
