Fondue
Situated in the hub of Downtown Tacoma, the Pacific Ave. location provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing 4 course experience begins with cheese fondue prepared tableside. Fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, & vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh, & flavorful. Entrees are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the fun. Your choice of chocolate fondue is the grand finale, served with a variety of delicious dippers. Many have stopped by to satisfy that fondue craving after a concert at The T Dome, a visit to the Chihuly Glass Museum, or a family outing at the zoo.
We feature an extensive wine list, fresh trendy cocktails, & specialty martinis.
It’s the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, overdue date night, family night, or a group gathering!

We had a lunch reservation and were seated in a section with very few people around us which was awesome. We had a new server who was great as well as her trainer.
The food was amazing and a wonderful celebration or an early Father's Day and birthday lunch.

Specials aren’t really specials and the additional fees for small amounts of food, the value is just not at all justified for the receipt price. It was slow and our service was a sweetie, but the food was super slow getting out and this being an empty night. Was just odd.

We cme up to celebrate a birthday each year, the table is always sat as requested and the food and service are top notch. However, I am giving the overall rating of FAIR because of the following reason, the different style table warmers.

Previously, the gas style would heat quick and give high temps for cooking the food. The new style heating pads were not up to the task. They did get hot enough to melt the chesse, but never hot enough to require removing the food from the cooking fork to consume. Cooking times for the meats seemed to take a bit longer than before as well, and as stated, were not hot enough to bother removing from the cooking forks.

While the chocolate was warm enough to get melted, it was in no way hot.

The food is always good. Had 2 adults and 3 kids and ordered two 4 course experiences. This was on the waitresses recommendations. Had to order another bunch of entrees. Not sure how the pricing breakdown is as it then became very confusing. The service this time was a 5 at best but she may have been new. Forgot many things and didn't explain a whole lot. Needless to say, I cant help but think I was overcharged in the end since it is not entirely clear on how the addons work. $500 for 3kids and 2 adults in the end. (We were charged for the salad which said came with the meal and stuff like that).

Absolute worst service. Waiter forgot asking about drinks. We had to ask. Forgot to bring veggies with the meal. Never checked on us. 20 minutes with empty plates and water after main course. And the big slap in the face - 18% gratuity and 4% service charge forced to pay for the awful experience on Mother's day. $206 for 3 people. Never again.

Super disappointed! Took my wife and daughter for Mother's day dinner. First, the kids working at the front were much more interested in their own thing than making us feel welcomed. Once seated, the first thing the server says to us is that she is tired and can't wait to go home. Terribly unprofessional.

We were quite shocked at the prices of the very limited Mother's day menu! Why on earth did we have to pay $50 for my daughter's vegetarian option? Then, after we ordered, apparently they had run out of some options so they just decided to replace without asking us first.

Finally, rolling in the gratuity, a service fee, and a 4% fee to cover increased labor costs? Really?

I get that it was the end of what was probably a long day/weekend but come on. If we're going to shell out $320 for dinner for 3, and one of those is a just a bunch of cut veggies and melted cheese, I'd expect a vastly more enjoyable experience.

We will not be back.
