We went for my birthday. The decor is eclectic. Large print wall paper in various themes, huge shaded chandeliers, skull candle holders, fringe curtains everywhere make for a neat but unrelaxing place. Its weird. The menu is VERY confusing, It had been a while since we had been there but we thought we knew what we were doing. You can't... More

Fondue is so much fun, but it gets so expensive when they tally up the dishes. If you want to feel full, it will cost more than you think. I feel it's over priced.

Yes, La Fondue is pricey. Yes, it takes a while for you to get through your meal. Yes, the decor inside is dark and, in my opinion anyway, it could stand to be remodeled a bit. But... it's still worth the time and money to go at least once a year. I think part of the reason for the higher... More

Six to sixty (?) types of meet, cheeses and Chocalate available on master menu. Very busy loud restaurant yet comfortable in your eating area. Servers and staff are efficient, fast moving and excellent. Costs are up there!

Put this on your list of places to go for that very special occasion. We went to celebrate my son's high school graduation. First thing to know, this is not an in-n-out joint. The meal is served at a leisurely pace, and can take 3 hours start to finish. If you get the "meal", it comes with a big salad... More

One of our favorite splurge restaurants with diverse choices including alligator, buffalo, and kangaroo meats. Romantic ambience, interesting art. Waiting staff is very polite. We enjoyed the meats which we chose to grill. There are other types of cooking options too ( broth, wine etc.) Hint: For the best bang for your buck, choose the combination meals, and not a... More

We had the La Freak to try everything since it was our first time. I loved that there were such well mannered kids enjoying dinner with their families. The service was awesome and the place is pretty casual but if you want to dress-up a little more no worries. You will fit in just fine. If you liked a certain... More

The fondue is as creative and delicious as the decor. We went there June 13 to celebrate a family birthday. I had cheese, seafood and, of course, chocolate fondue.

Such a delicious dining experience and terrific way to celebrate an important event. We went all out and ordered all four courses - it was very tasty and quite a lot of rich food. We appreciated the inviting ambiance of the restaurant and terrific service. I especially enjoyed how tasty the spinach salad, grilled chicken, and chocolate fondue called The... More

My family are semi-regulars. The restaurant recently changed ownership. So far the new owners have not disrupted the success of the established menu. The place has a lot of mood lighting, so you may need the light of your cell phone to read the menu. Our favorite dishes: We love the chef salad with sweet/sour blue cheese dressing. Our favorite...
