We have been coming here for 15 years, and each year it goes down in quality. This year it was not enough cheese in our pot and not enough chocolate in the pot. They marinate the meat now, yuck. The plate of dippings for the...More

The cheese fondue and dessert fondue were excellent. Service was slow in terms of refills and getting drinks. The chicken and beef were of marginal quality and for $65/person you expect more.
