We went for Valentine's date night and ate from the regular menu. It was very busy but it seemed like they were moving tables at a fair speed. Our experience took about 3 hours but we were our server's only table in that area which I think contributed to a longer lag time between courses. Our server was attentive and made sure everything was the right consistency and we had everything we needed. I recommend the loaded potato cheese course, the flaming turtle chocolate course, and the white peach cocktail!

Came here for a date night. Server was well groomed, full of energy and great up until we got to the dessert. Waiter had S’mores on his mind instead of the chocolate Turtle that I asked for. I did not do a good job at ordering my 🍷 for neither. I had one that had too much pepper in it and one was too sweet much much rum. We ordered the pacific rim was not big on the shrimp would stick to the steak lovers fondue next time possibly.

We had an absolutely amazing time! Food was fantastic and it was such a cool experience. When making the online reservation, we noted it was our anniversary. They brought us to the back where there was a little pod with a curtain for privacy. It was so cute and romantic. The only thing we had a problem with was the entree portion. We picked the cast iron grill for our cooking style, but that was probably user error. Overall, had a great experience and can not wait to do it again!

Came here for a date night. The place was real cool. We had a nice quiet spot. Staff was friendly. Tasty food. Drinks amazing. Clean bathrooms. Will definitely come back. Coming from LA the price wasn’t bad for two people.

Absolutely wonderful!!! Obviously, prices have gone up slightly, but still just as fabulous of an experience. PRO TIP: Go Monday-Thursday for an even more calm and relaxing experience.

I believe really going to this type of restaurant is mainly for the experience of just going. First of all waitress was really good and honest she has been there 4 yes and enjoys her job wish I could recall her name. That doesn't matter though she was nice. The atmosphere was nice and quiet comfortable for conversation. The 1st course of cheese and breads fruits was good, saleds good. But the Entres was just ok maybe because my first time there and trying to figure out what I might would like. But definitely need to find a new supplier for lobster tail it wasn't very fresh. Now desert fondue was great we got Bannana Foster was excellent!! All and all good but alittle over priced. $142. for 2 people that didn't include the tip of $30 which I was glad to give for a good waitress. Maybe they should give free tea or coffee or lower the menu prices or give free desert fondue just suggestion. So wouldn't be so expensive. Like I said I think these types of restaurants are for once in a blue moon dining experience.

Great experience! It’s been years since I last visited, food was good! The waitress could have been little more informative and at the end had to chase someone down for refills on our drinks. For $200 bill, I don’t feel as though we got the best customer services. But all in all it was good food and we definitely got the experience of it
