    First time dining at this restaurant. The fondue entree disappointed; however, the fondue dessert was amazing. Unfortunately, restaurant fell short of our expectations.

    We missed the old style german green salad that you previously served. Also, our bread for the cheese fondue cam toasted which we didn't care for. Our server, Ziggy, was excellent.

    We enjoyed our food, however felt our server was up selling and rushing us. I was still eating fondue when asked if I would like desert. My husband is Swiss and we were treated like we didn't know what we wanted. They forgot the Kirsch and I had to go to bar and ask for it while the fondue was already on the table. She even tried to up sell the bourbon on the old fashion. I did not appreciate it.

    We weren't seated right away with our reservation and we were then seated immediately in front of the active kitchen doors when there were plenty of other tables in the restaurant. The restaurant was understaffed. The waiter over exagerrated a fake southern accent when assisting our table of Texans and then turned it off for the table next to us. The food was good.

    Outstanding service in a warm relaxing environment. We had the Zuricher veal and it was very good in a Marsala type sauce. Rossi was hot and crispy. Chocolate fondue for dessert was fun and delicious.

    Just ok. We didn’t care for the preparation of the cheese fondue and the oil broth for the meats was only ok. Overall for the food, presentation and overall enjoyment, it was average and we wouldn’t go back.

    We celebrated our 14th anniversary here. The food was incredible. Ordering can feel a little overwhelming, but our server, Sigi took such great care of us and guided us to a wonderful meal. As an extra special touch, she sent the Sommelier to help us select a bottle of wine 🖤
