If you want to true fondue experience this is the place to go. Great staff, Greta choices in all types of fondues. The atmosphere is loud and fun like you would expect in a true Swiss restaurant.

This was our first visit to LaGrolla. It was a beautiful night and we ate outside. The service was excellent...only to be outdone by the food. I ordered chicken, the others ordered seafood . No one was disappointed. I look forward to a return visit.

I think having a reservation on the weekend is a must and really wouldn't hurt any other time. But for Lunch and early dinner you might get lucky without one.
