I've been to Simply Fondue twice and it's my 3rd dining experience over there. I am a cheese and bread person, so it can't go wrong with Fondue ;) Our waitress Susie had the exceptional customer service, she explained the menu thoroughly even we told her we have been to Simply Fondue before. Not to mention our cheese fondues were BOMB, I am looking forward to visit there this year again :) Thanks Susan for the excellent services!

Amazing food. This was our first time bringing the family (3 kids), but it was great! We had our own little booth, so I didn’t feel bad during our lunch that our kids weren’t super quiet. Every course of food was delicious and our whole family loved it!

Came here for my birthday. It was great. Our waitress did a wonderful job. We had come here once before and liked it enough to come back and give it a Second go around. This time we ordered 2 cheeses and an entree and decided to grill it. We chose the Smoked Gouda and Whiskey Cheddar cheese with the Combination Entree. The smoked Gouda was delicious it was our favorite of the night and the Whiskey Cheddar was good but it was a bit rich in flavor for my taste. They bring you as much fresh veggies and bread as you’d like. Our entree was the combination and it can came with shrimp, 2 kinds of beef, 2 kinds of chicken. A ravioli and we ordered a lobster tail on top of that. Plenty of food for the both of us. I will say one of the chicken and one of the beef had a little too much spices and made it a little difficult to eat.

Our first visit we ended up getting the 4 course
Meal for 2 @ $59 a person. Again, it was delicious. This came with a salad each, choice of cheese fondue, choice of 6 meats or seafood (3 choices per person) with choice of cooking style and a chocolate fondue. It was plenty of food for the two of us and great since you get to have a taste of just about everything on the menu then this is the way to go. Be prepared to spend some time here and make a reservation as it has been busy both visits and hard to get a table once the dinner rush time hits. Overall I recommend this place if you have never fondued or like to have a nice night with your significant other.

Wonderful food and service!
We actually probably did not need reservations for our late lunch at 3pm..they open at 3pm. The food was fabulous. We had salads, cheese fondue and wine. We chose a local Wente wine, which paired great with our food.
Awesome place! Will go back for dinner soon

This was the best meal I have had in a long long time. The meal was everything we expected and more. The martini's were flavorful and totally worth the price. Yes, it is a little on the higher end on price. BUT the food was well worth it and the atmosphere was incredible

Unique menu - fun to cook at the table but can have the restaurant prepare your meal. Cheese fondues are delicious, salads are fresh, sauces are really good, nice wine list. Enjoyed the dessert chocolate fondues as well. Too pricey for me to become a regular but great when you want to splurge.

For a first time diner it was fantastic. If you are looking for a quick meal this is not the place. 2 hour dining experience but it doesn't seem like it while you are cooking your food. Service was excellent they explained everything perfectly for us. I loved the large cocktail menu. The martini flight is a must. Can't wait to go back

I have been to Simple Fondue at least a dozen times. This was the first time I sat in the section by the front. We sat in one booth that the booth seat was tore up. I asked to move. They moved us and that booth was tore up too. The seats when sitting down are shredded and tore up. I have never been in a restaurant that the seats were so bad. When you are paying close to 100 for two people for dinner things should be kept up. The walls need to be painted. Things looked dirty and scuffed up. The food was good and service was good but I am going to wait awhile to go back. I hope they fix things up.

I love Simply Fondue and it is often my go-to place for my friends night out on my birthday. This year, it was even more special. We got the front room so it was quieter and less of the oil smell. Both the manager and waiter went above and beyond on their service and the night turned out perfectly. The martinis are incredible, as is the Whiskey Cheddar cheese and bacon wrapped beef. Yum!

A wonderful birthday for my wife! A perfect opportunity for two couples (us and her sister w/ her husband) to have plenty of time to chat, laugh, & catch up w/ each other with the fondue (something to do) in the middle. A lot of fun... dinner and entertainment in one place!
