While our food was delicious the portions were much smaller than we'd previously experienced. And, our server could not have been more disinterested. She routinely disappeared for long lengths of time. Other servers stopped by and bussed our dishes she was so frequently away. We waited 20 minutes after our cheese course was completed before our salads arrived. This was after waiting almost 10 minutes for the cheese course. The cheese sat on our cooktop for so long that another server had to turn the heat off to keep the cheese from burning. Our server didn't notice that the cooktop was turned off and cold when she sat our cooking grill on our table. We had to have another server turn the cooktop back on or else it would have been completely cold when our entrees arrived. Another server had to run our ticket so that we could leave as our server was gone again. To make matters worse, we were there for a very special occasion, our daughter's 18th birthday. We'd made sure to include this information in our reservation, however, no one really did anything to make the occasion special for her other than the lady who sat us at our table. She offhandedly said, "Oh, Happy Birthday" but our daughter didn't even know she was speaking to her. And our server made no effort to acknowledge the occasion. My daughter was brought a very small cube of cake with a candle in it and 2 halves of a strawberry well after we'd finished our meal. Our server just said, "Here you go." Overall, this was not the special occasion we'd driven over 2 hours to have. It was not even as good as our previous experiences at this location. We were very disappointed. Probably will not return as our meal was not worth the very high price we paid.

Our server Margaret clearly did not want to be there. She forgot our cocktails, left us for long periods of time without water and her conversation with us was strange.

The fondue itself felt cheap. The entree was great and the chocolate fondue as well.

This is not a $60 meal, it's a $30.

I will not be going back.

Great value for the amount of food. Since there were two of us it would have been great to have the option of having our own choice of cheese fondue and cooking styles.

The floors were dirty. A team member wiped off tables spilling food on the floor and no one ever bothered to clean up the floor. There were apples laying on the carpet the whole time. We had 2 servers helping us and they were way overwhelmed. The servers were very friendly, just way too busy.

This was our first time coming. We are a family of four. My kids really enjoyed the experience. The staff and our waiter was excellent. The only thing that we didn't like was a group of loud drunk girls next to us. But they eventually left so it was ok.

I made reservations for the weekend after Valentine’s Day for my daughter and her friends to celebrate her birthday. When i got there the hostess informed me they only had a prix fixe menu for valentines (even though valentines was two days before) Each person cost $70. There were four teenagers who pick at their food. I asked if they could order from a kids menu and was told no.
Had i known this I wouldn’t have made the reservation. Be careful when you make reservations. I feel like this was a nasty trick by the management. The bill at the end was $420 (incl tax/tip) for four teenage girls.

Our waitress seemed she didn't really want to be there. She never asked if we wanted anything to drink only brought us water and 1 refill a piece. The cheese tasted like straight beer. My salad had to be sent back because it was wrong. Other waiters and waitresses around us at other tables bonded with their tables laughing and bringing refills right away. They also recommended different things to try like the wines and ect. We also had a manager close by our table talk loudly in the phone about shipments and other things causing a distraction at our table This would have to be the worst experience ever, my fiance made the joke that im lucky this wasn't a first date. Sorry for the inconvenience we may have caused visiting the restaurant that caused a poor visit.

The food was okay. It took our server over 15 minutes to greet us. Then another 15 before she came to take out order. On expected to be there for 2 hours but due to the extremely slow service it was a 3 hour experince .

We ordered the Cast Iron grill cook method. I like the idea, but guests should be told that cook style is better suited for those with cooking experience. The Steak Lovers is great for this style, but the veggie choices are not good for that style. Get rid of the potatoes and broccoli and use squash/zucchini. The mushrooms work well on it though.

Our waitress asked us if we were going to the Fox that evening. She said she'd be fast so we could get there on time. I don't know if she was new or just slow, but we didn't receive our chocolate until 7:05. The table next to us came in after us. Their waiter was much more attentive, and got them out way before us. The food was very good, just very very slow service. Our server didn't even end up bringing our credit card back to us. She had someone else bring it.

We booked a reservation with an early enough time to get to the show at the Fox Theatre. When we checked in she asked if we were going to the show and we stated yes. Hostess then told us that they would let our server know so that we would be out in time. Our server was nice but was as slow as Christmas. She was worried more about the time around us with kids than even taking our order. We had to rush through the entree and chocolate fondu because it took so long for her bring it out after the cheese course. We beech eliminates the salad to help with time.
