Economy hits fondue. Last March my brother-in-law was in town from New York and we took him for some local eats, praising Simply Fondue. He is a world traveler and a "foodie." Much to our dismay, although the restaurant is opulent in its decor, we were shuffled into an area which reminded us of a lunch room - sparcely occupied. Our hostess appeared to not only be the hostess, but server and bartender, too. The Vodka/Tonic had "yesterday's" used brownish lime, but the clincher - no coffee. Really? Coffee and chocolate go hand in hand. We were told that they were "out" of coffee (this was a Sunday night) and that the order would not come in until Monday. EPIC FAIL.
ps - There is a Von's Grocery Store one-half block away. I would have expected better customer service. Too expensive for a bad experience. Simply Fondue...Simpleton Fondue.
Best Wine Tasting & Fondue in Orange County!! – I heard about this great weekend wine tasting from a friend and thought we would try it out! Luckily we did because I am making sure to go back every weekend! We started off with their $1 Wine Tasting on the patio while we watched the cars come through downtown San Juan and the people visiting the Mission next door. We really enjoyed the price of the tastings and then our server told us about their early bird special of salad, cheese and chocolate for $20! We loved the spinach strawberry salad, then devoured the pepperjack cheese and ended it all on a high note with the raspberry cabernet chocolate fondue! It was all AMAZING and fille dus up at a reasonable price!! We were very pleased at the service, great food and wine for only around $24!! Well worth it and can't wait for next weekend to do it again!
Most Romantic and Fun Restaurant We've Been In – LA FONDUE IS THE MOST ROMANTIC RESTAURANT IN ORANGE COUNTY. THIS FONDUE FEAST IS SO PLEASING TO THE MOUTH AND EYES!!! WE HAVE BEEN TO THE OTHER FONDUE PLACE IN IRVINE AND LA FONDUE BLOWWS IT AWAY....NO COMPARISON. LA FONDUE IS WORTH THE DRIVE FROM HOLLYWOOD TO SAN DIEGO. WE HAVE BEEN TO 100'S OF RESTAURANTS AND HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING AS NICE AS LA FONDUE. BY THE WAY, THE FOOD IS A 10, THE SELECTION FOR DINNER IS A 10, THE DECOR IS A 10 AND THE SERVICE IS A 10. THE CHOCOLATE IS SEXXY AND A 10 TOO!!!! IF YOU DON'T MAKE LOVE AFTER LA FONDUE THEN...........................YOU FIGURE IT OUT!!
great food great people – loved it. that is all i have to say. i will go back as often as the wallet allows. clean, fresh food and great servers.
Exotic fare and fondue are the decadent centerpiece at this upscale San Juan Capistrano spot. – In Short
It's hip to dip at this ornate mansion, where glittering chandeliers and gurgling fountains complement Warholesque screen prints and a pulsing electro soundtrack. A la carte is an option, but the truly indulgent opt for the four-course menu. Diners dunk niblets into one of nine cheese flavors, like pesto swiss or sundried tomato gorgonzola, then simmer or sear exotic meats like Kobe beef, alligator or calamari steak. Finally, sweets like sliced snickers get doused in liqueur-spiked chocolate to round out the food coma.
