My fiancé and I have gone here for our anniversary every year since we’ve been together, and it’s always a great experience. Food is always wonderful, staff is friendly, and since we happen to have our anniversary during Portland dining month, it’s an even better value.

First time trying a fondue restaurant and I am a fan! Loved the mozzarella pesto starter and the wide variety of entrees offered. Also, the dessert selection was amazing.

Our server seemed stressed out and forgot to give us part of our leftovers. The cheese was fabulous, the entree was just ok, and the dessert was better than average.

Definitely recommend the cheese sauce and dessert but do not think the main entree is worth it

Best dining experience we’ve had in a long time. Jillian was our server and she was perfect and kind and could joke with us when we opened up a little. The place is beautiful and for Portland dining month at happy hour, we go tbh the best deal. Wonderful dipping sauces for meats as well. Couldn’t ask for more!

Our favorite cheese fondues are the ruby port and the NW truffles - both delicious!
Pro tip - we took home the broth in which our entrees were cooked in - it makes an excellent broth, full of umame from all the yummy meats/seafood that were cooked in it.

Wish I would have had the chance to eat. Waited 15 minutes after our reservation to be seated. Then we were sitting at our table for 20 minutes and didn't even receive a glass of water or hear one word from a server (or any employee at all). Couldn't wait any longer so we got up and left, I don't think any of the two employees working even noticed.

Very first time being there and the food was amazing! If I ever go back, I’d Uber or Lyft because it took 20 minutes of driving around just to find a spot. The restaurant was also running 15 minutes behind. They said it was because of the parking but I don’t know for sure if that was it. Other than that, the food was amazing, our waitress was amazing and the ambience was perfect.

40 minutes after our reservation we were barely sat, had not ordered our meals and not received our drinks. The host/ waiter just shrugged. Three tables were sat before us even though we checked in before them. The waiter choose the cooking broth, never asked what we wanted. We has our main proteins and sauses but no cooking broth for another 10 minutes. We are very familiar with fondue and were greatly disappointed. No apology or acknowledgement that there was any issues. An complaints were ignored.

The service was extremely slow. I have eaten there before and it was not as slow so I'm not sure if they had someone call out sick or why or was so slow. The cheese and dessert was amazing but the main dish was super over priced and not as tasty as expected (we got a vegetarian plate and the east-west plate which is essentially shrimp and chicken).

The restaurant is small and red and very intimate. Make reservations and expect to be there for a long time because fondue is a long process. Also, go hungry because you will get very full. It’s perfect for dates where you want a unique experience and plenty of time to talk.
The ruby port cheese fondue and the Brie and Gorgonzola cheese fondue are so different from the classic Swiss but they are so delicious that it’s unbelievable. If you don’t want all of the courses, I highly recommend just getting cheese fondue. The portions of meat and the quality of meat were okay, but the broth and dipping sauces are great. The bananas foster dessert fondue is so good but I do wish they had a dessert option with white chocolate like the Melting Pot has. Also, the dessert fondue did not stay hot enough and the server said the tea light under it, which would not stay lit, was only for ambiance, but I would have preferred it staying hotter on the flame that the broth was on.
Attached to the restaurant is Bartini. They have tons of martini options. So far, every martini that I’ve tried are all wonderful.
We went on Valentine’s Day, so it was obviously busy, but the server charged us for our side and did not bring us the strawberries for dessert even though those things were supposed to be included in the special dinner for the holiday. So, that’s why the service gets 4 out of 5 stars. Very friendly waiter though.
