The service was excellent even on a busy night. The owner of the business was on hand and greeted each table. Not only that she assisted the wait staff in picking up dishes and refilling drinks; even to the point of asking if there was anything we needed. If you think you will be in/out in an hour think again.... More

Wow, what a neat place! GPS takes you to the wrong strip mall, as stated in previous reviews; it is in the next complex to the west. We were there for a bachelorette party, so we took the center of the dining room at a large table. There is not a lot of seating, so you'll likely need a reservation... More

For our anniversary we went to Cafe Fondue very relaxed we certainly didn't feel as though they needed our table for other customers. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We felt special the owner even came by to wish up a Happy Anniversary!

Okay let's get a few things out of the way. Google Maps has the restaurant in the wrong place. It gets you to the correct road West 80th Place just west off of 53, but in the first strip mall on the south side of the road. You need to hit the second strip mall/building and the signage is quite... More

I love Cafe Fondue! The food is fantastic and there is a great selection of beer and wines. Every course is amazing. My boyfriend and I go often on dates and with groups of friends. It is perfect for both a romantic date or a night out with friends. The owner is often there and is very attentive and the... More

I have been coming to Cafe Fondue for 15 years. It is, by far, my favorite restaurant. I recently went to a fondue place in the Chicago and was so disappointed. It is amazing how much of a difference there is between Gruyere and cheddar.....oh boy! no comparison. I love the bread (not cut up hamburger buns) and the grapes... More

Never been to a fondue restaurant before and this was great experience. Owner and staff went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and appreciated. Food was good. Not sure if I am a fondue fan but great experience.

Great service and delightful atmosphere. The hostesses were gracious and polite. The place was clean and our table was beautifully set. The hostess took time to explain the process of fondue which was very interesting. Cooking your own food in this manner was fun. The food tasted great! Thank you for a wonderful evening. I will definitely visit again. My... More
