This is our preferred fondue restaurant in Portland. You must make reservations and leave time to find parking, though. It's reasonably priced, the atmosphere is warm and comfortable, the service is timely, the portions are healthy-sized, and the staff is extremely attentive. Ask for a booth along the sides of the restaurant, or for a table by the front windows... More

We went here for our special Thanksgiving dinner, both because we wanted to do something special in our new adopted Vancouver/Portland region, and because we wanted a nice dinner that would be suitable for both my wife (vegetarian) and me. The dinner was exquisite! We had a cheese fondue starter with a wonderful swiss cheese / onion / pepper mix,... More

I've been here a couple of times now, most recently last night to celebrate my nieces birthday. The Fondue Experience is a great 3 course (with an additional side to split) option. The cheese course is, by far, the star of the show. We had the monthly special which is white cheddar with sautéed onion and sun-dried tomato. Amazing!! The... More

Reservations is a good idea and easily done from their website. Nice cozy place with incredible food. All the appetizer fondue is INCREDIBLE! The sauces for the entree's are yummy. Be sure to save room for the desserts!! This place is MUCH BETTER than Melting Pot any day!

I have had fondue in too many cities around the world to count, but this was quite lovely. We had a big corner booth and ordered the complete cheese, meat and chocolate and were impressed with every course! Definitely get the garlic sausage with the cheese, it is divine! We had lobster and shrimp and chicken and pork and scallops(the... More

I want to address a few common complaints I have found in the other reviews. First off, this is not a place to find a value/bargain for your food. If you want a buffet then go to a buffet. If you want a bargain meal, go to a chain restaurant and get endless shrimp or soup/bread sticks. Secondly, at this... More

Three of us tried this for a birthday outing during Portland dining month. I wish we'd opted for another choice. We arrived a little early for our reservation and there was not enough room for all 3 of us to sit to wait. A couple came in after about ten minutes without a reservation. Although they were initially told the... More

I have always enjoyed this restaurant. We visited last night for the Portland Dining Month special. We had a reservation at 6:00 PM and were seated immediately. I will note that if you don't have a reservation, they do not have anywhere to wait so you will be standing outside waiting for a table to open up. Our waiter showed... More

Quaint restaurant, excellent service with the exception of pushing cocktails and wine to the point of being annoying. Portland dining month consisted of 3 courses. 1st course was the best overall. A brie and gorgonzola fondue with bread. Excellent. 2nd course was shrimp, lobster and vegetables in a chicken based broth that really was nothing memorable. They included a variety... More
