Pretty much they are selling a campy, semi-romantic experience but with horrible execution on both a local and corporate level. We went on a Thursday night and the restaurant lot was pretty empty. They asked if we had reservations and, since we did not, we...More

If you want to make dinner an experience this is really fun. Eight family and friends celebrated a couple of birthdays. Our server, True, did a wonderful job. It was yummy, but very pricey, check out the menu before you go.

Our birthday dinner was good but not great. Our service was slow for dessert because of sudden flux of chocolate fondue ordered. For our entree, the oil was too hot and burned several of pieces though we used less time.

Experiment with everything (but follow the instructions). Definitely get a recommendation for pairing a flight of wine samplers and your meal. Be careful where you set your fondue prongs. I'd suggest waiters put the discard plate and raw food plate on the side of non-dominant...More
