Meal for 8 $1200 with a bottle of wine, tip and 2 coffees. GO FIGURE. Decide what you want to spend for a fine dining experience but this is really not it. Despite a reservation for 8 we were put on 2 separate tables. We...More

La Fondue is OK if you like Fondue. It is rather pricy for what you get. It is good for a group, however.

I checked my credit card bill after I took my son to this restaurant for his 18th birthday, and they added an extra $20.00 onto my credit card charge, even though I had signed for a certain amount. This is theft, plain and simple, and...More
