The biggest question we had going into this "experience" was, "Is it worth it?". Because it is very spendy. The wife and I spent $200 four our visit, but I'd say it's worth it if it's a special occasion or you're just rich or something....More

Of course cooking your own meat is what fondue is so you are correct but is the experience is part of the charm of course. There are many amazing restaurants downtown but four courses at our price point is pretty reasonable. Thank you for sharing.

I always wanted to eat at this place. It was just okay, no big deal. Got some kind of swiss cheese fondue, it was melted cheese, no real depth of flavors or complexity or high quality. Just okay. The dessert one was better, but still...More
