Started off rocky as when I called in to make reservations they that I did not need them and no wait. So i said great and drove there right away and they said sorry we are not seating for 45 minutes and no one should have told me that there was no wait. Ok the good. They actually squeezed us...

We came to this restaurant for a 50 year old bd party for a gf. We decided to get the 4 course meal for $45- each. There was too much food, but it was delicious. I would get 2 less courses and eat just as much. We had to leave some of the food because they gave way too much... More

This place is overpriced, smokes, and a lot of work. You can find better fondue places, and if you do fondue at home, you'll get more for your money, without having to tip someone who didn't do much work. Expect that the bill will exceed your expectations, while the food will be underwhelming.

We are family of four and children love coming here to grill their own food. Their meal combo is the best value. On Sunday kids eat free with adult combo meal. Service is iffy - depends on who you get. It can be excellent to subpar. Ingredients are fresh but marinated on the salty side. The desserts dipped in chocolate... More

I had the fondue for lunch, and it was delicious. The service was also very good. The only bad thing I can say is that there was a lot of stored, excess restaurant supplies in plain view. The ambiance could have been improved. I would definitely go back

We went on a team work do so thank god I was not picking up the tab. The fondue course to be fair was very nice although the choice of items to dip in the cheese was very limited. I'm sorry but i just didn't get the main course. We were given a wide choice of things to select from... More

Went to Simply Fondue for about the 6th time and enjoyed ourselves as usual. The food was as good as usual and it was nice to see a few changes to the menu items. We had a really good time as a family enjoying our meal together. We've always enjoyed coming here but we've had better service than this time.

Decided to meet up in Livermore as a centrally located spot for people from Modesto and San Jose and thought a fondue place would give us plenty of time to sit and catch up. Simply Fondue was a great choice! The food was fantastic and is served course by course over a period of about 2.5 hours. We could hardly... More

Simply Fondue is difficult to get a table. The bar provides a comfortable atmosphere with terrific martinis. The chocolate martini is killer!!! In my opinion, the price-line is overpriced for the product quantities received. The establishment can be a romantic backdrop.

Neat concept. Went for my birthday and had an awesome experience. My favorite part was the appetizers and the dessert menus. Dinner menu was just ok, nothing great there. We got in at 8 and left at 10:10 even thou they close at 10. Server was alittle rushed. Not very helpful in explaining things. But have a good time anyways... More
