    This classic fondue restaurant is a favorite for dates. Order a bottle of wine and dip by candlelight to the sounds of a flamenco guitarist. Read more

    You have to try this. Very fun and delicious. It takes a while to cook all the food but well worth it. Be prepared to spend almost three hours dining. The dessert fondue was the best!!

    Make reservations if you expect to get seated. Very iffy with out reservations. Expect to spend at least $50 per person without alcohol. Food is excellent. Service very good.

    When are they going to add hot dogs to the dessert menu? When you roll them in the chocolate sauce and graham crackers, it looks just like kitty poop in a litter box.

    Gruyère fondue gives way to seafood, aged beef tenderloin, vegetables, or all three, which you bubble in hot oil at the table. For a sexy finish, dip fruit into a pot of flaming chocolate. Read more

    For people with price issues... Go to Geja's during restaurant week. $33 for salad, cheese fondue, entree fondue and chocolate fondue. You leave smelling like hot meaty oil but it's worth it
