Great Fun and Food – I like the idea I can see I'm getting quality food.
And, I'm always watching my weight. This is a place where you can control portions and know what you are really eating. I did splurge and ate the chocolate fondue with fruit. That was great and worth the calories.
Will return when I go back to Orlando.
VERY FUN FOR OUR WHOLE FAMILY! – It was a unique atmosphere! The food wasn't phenomenal but it was not bad by any means. I loved the cheese fundue, as did my 2 year old and my husband. The meat portion was pretty good, but Im not a fan of "boiled" filet, but the shrimp and lobster was really good! The desert part was also delicous!
The customer sevice we got was great. We were there after closing time (due to bad directions) and they treated us awesome. We never felt rushed, everyone was very friendly, and courteous!
We would definitally go back!
Don't go unless you have money to blow – Very expensive. Food wasnt that great. Good service but a bit pushy on selling extra items and gift cards. Unless you have an extra 100 bucks laying around (for two people) and your only choices are burn the money or eat here..then eat here.
Good Fun Food---but not worth the price. – The quality of the food is good, but the fun of frying and dipping does NOT justify $250 for a family of five (not including the tip)!!! Way to much for what it is!
Middle of the road – As this is my first visit to Orlando, I have used citysearch as a guide for dining. After reading the reviews here, my wife and I decided to give it a try for something a little different. We started our meal with the cheese fondue appetizer. We chose the cheddar cheese which was prepared in front of us consisting of a mixture of beer, garlic, worcheshire and of course cheddar cheese. I think there were a couple more ingredients but I cant remember what they were. We were then given breads and vegetable and apples to dip in the cheese. I personally did not like the cheese concoction and I am from Wisconsin and I like cheese. It seemed to have some sort of wang (technical term) to it. My wife thought it was just ok. Next came the salad, we both chose the house salad. It was a good salad with a special house dressing that was quite tasty. After that came the entree. My wife chose the chicken and I chose the sirloin. Both came with potato's and veggies and a variety of sauces and batter. We chose to cook ours in the oil as opposed to the broth. The meat was good quality and the sauces offered a variety of flavors. The hard part was the cooking. You are each given 2 forks to cook with so obviusly you will only have at most 2 peices of food to eat. On the flip side, your food is always hot. In the end, we were both too full to try the chocolate fondue for desert which was disappointing. All in all, it was fun. We don't see ourselves doing it again mostly because as it has been mentioned, it is pricey. With tip, we came out paying $75.00. I am sure I can get a better meal in this town for that money. If you want to do something different and have a little fun, this is a fondoo. If you are looking to relax and for really good food, this is a fondon't.
It's hip to dip at this cozy fondue-lover's paradise. – In Short
Booths equipped with tabletop fondue pots are clustered together inside the intimate dining room. Start with a cheese fondue, including an assortment of breads, veggies and fruits for dipping. Entrees include lobster, center-cut filet, fish, chicken and vegetarian selections served with a variety of dipping sauces. For dessert, try the flaming turtle, a mix of chocolate and caramel flambéed tableside, served with nut-covered marshmallows, fresh fruit, pound cake, brownies and cheesecake.
blandfest – In a nutshell--overpriced bland food served in a nice ambiance.
But the ambiance and fun fondue novelty wears off quickly when the food falls flat especially when you see the check.
A great night out! – This isn't a place like Friday's where you go once a week when you are too tired to cook. There are some reviews saying its overpriced but it is well worth it. I've gone to the one in Maryland as well as the one in Florida. The desert is one of the best deserts anywhere. Freshly melted chocolates of any kind, although Milk chocolate is the best. The white is good but it doesn't go with everything on the tray served with it and dark is, well, dark. The dinner alone is small if you don't buy the meal with the cheese to start, and a desert to finish but if you get the entire meal, you won't want to eat again for a year. My favorite dinner would be the tenderloin steak with the teriyaki sauce.
The mood is romantic. The lights are low, but not too low. The servers are all well dressed and the decorations look fancy. There is a huge list of wines if that is your thing.
I recommend this place for people celebrating an event or having a romantic date with someone. Because of the price as well as the 3 hour long meal, I wouldn't say it is for everyone but it is worth a try for most.
I don't get it – We finally tried it after driving by everyday on the way home. I just don't get it. The food was extremely over priced, the broth was super salty and the dark chocolate was waxy and cheap tasting. For the price ($100 for two of us) there are a million places I'd rather go. I guess the experience was fun for about a second but next time I'll spend my money on a great cut of meat and a fine bottle of wine and look to my dinner companion for entertainment.
Romantic and Delicious – If romance and great food are what you are looking for, make this your next destination. I have eaten here four times, and have had great food and service each time. I have loved everything that I have eaten, but unless you have a huge appetite, the four-course dinner is too much food.
