Our family of 7 dined at Fondue Fred to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. On a Thursday evening parking was easier than I expected. You may have to take a couple passes around the neighborhood. The restaurant itself is in a strange hallway where two buildings intersect. It is in a sort of covered hallway. There was only one...

Good sociable evening with simple food served in a friendly way. Only one thing we ordered a pitcher of diet coke but was given sprite. The group of students now refer to Sprite as Swiss coke.!!!

Not too pricy with some tables in a bright and airy courtyard, all the dishes are very tasty (five of us had three cheese and two meat fondues) with plenty of good stuff to dip in them. Chocolate fondue to... More
