This place blasts their music so you can't hear yourself talk. You would need to practically scream to the person next to you in order to have a conversation. The food is really nothing to discuss as it is not good. That's my opinion. But their dessert, chocolate fondue, is so awesome. We came as a group and ordered practically... More

I love this place. I always come at least once when I'm in town. I love their huge salads and selections of fondue. If you love cheese and chocolate, you should come here!

La Fondue is an excellent restaurant that we visit for dinner often. We are vegetarians so normally have a 3 course meal; Salad, Cheese Fondue and Chocolate Fondue. All of these are so tasty, well prepared and presented. Very good customer service and care. Recommend this place to everyone for a $$$ dinner for special occasions.

This is a favorite romantic dinner for us. We have been at least 4 times to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, and Christmas time with family and friends. Every time we make it a event. Fasting for 75% of the day just so we can enjoy every single bite. This restaurant is definitely an experience like none other. The low lighting keeps... More

Atmosphere is cool and interesting. The service was fantastic and the servers worked as a team to make sure you were well taken care of. The food was good but the price is a bit much for what you get. We did the Groupon which is the way to go here and it was so much food and a great... More

OK, there's simply no excuse for a restaurant of this caliber to have dirty menus, dirty stemware, and dirty silverware, yet that is exactly what we got. It literally took our appetites away, and we are by no means clean freaks. The cheese and chocolate fondues themselves were quite good, but we had this gnawing feeling about how it may... More

This is a most unique dining experience. The décor is an eclectic mix of Asian, European & Byzantine with a little 60's mixed in. The salad was good, but RESIST eating much of it! We ordered La Freak and it is SOOOOO much food! We had the Cajun cheese fondue (delicious!). You grill your own meats. You get a bite... More

I bought a Groupon for the La freak dinner here for our anniversary. My husband loves trying out different meat and this was the perfect surprise for him. We waited for about 5 minutes more than the reserved time. Once we were seated, the server was prompt to greet us and introduce us to the menu. Then the food started... More

This is kind of like the melting pot on the upscale side. But different from the melting pot, this one serves many other exotic meat and the quality is finer than the melting pot. They have bison, alligator and other exotic meat. I didn't try it myself because I cannot handle any exotic meat. My son and my hubby did... More
