It was nice, but there were some odd quirks.
We go there 10 minutes ahead of our reservation and the restaurant was 3/4 empty on a Friday evening yet the hostess said she hesitated to seat us because she "didn't want to rush the server." What???
On to the food. Well, it was just so-so. The tri-color salad was way over-dressed. I suspect it was in order to cover the fact that it was OLD wilted limp salad greens and STALE croutons. Plus, it was pathetically SMALL. The side of veggies that came with the steak and seafood fondue had that old refrigerator smell... you know the one... when you leave something uncovered in a moldy fridge too long? The carrots were actually SLIMY. YUCK. Also, a couple of the pieces of steak were just shy of expired. The shrimp was nice and fresh, though (better be or that mighta done us in).
The service overall was adequate. We had two servers. One of them pretty much forgot to see if we wanted more wine (we did--they lost a sale because it took them too long), and the other was obviously Ms. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde. In other words, very nice at the start and then, as the evening wore on and she realized we were not going to drop a huge chunk of cash on dinner, extremely abrupt to the point of rudeness. It is a game I hate. Oh, and the first server had on obviously dirty pants.
On the plus side, the cheese fondue was very good and they served a nice selection of breads with it. The broth for the meat and seafood was nice, too, but I would stay away from the meat. The wine was fine , and except for forgetting to see if we wanted more, that server did a nice job of being attentive.
All in all, adequate. I would not go back. I definitely got the impression that they are cutting corners with the freshness and are struggling to stay afloat.
Good Stuff!. Tried La Fondue this weekend for the first time and I think I've been missing out! This was great food. My wife and i went there before the new Bond flick (read my review there!) and we had a beautiful time. And then the dessert of chocolate fondue was amazing. It was so romantic I almost took her home instead of the movie!
Good value for Fondue. The food here is usually excellent, even though the service can be hit or miss. In comparison to the other fondue restaurants in town, this place is a bargain price-wise...
GREAT SERVICE AND FOOD. VERY SATISFIED. GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE. EVERY TIME WE VISIT DENVER, WE STAY IN THE ENGLEWOOD AREA AND IT AT LA FONDUE AT LEAST ONCE.
Don't Waste your time :(.
My family's experiance at La Fondue was less than pleasent. We had to switch tables due to a bad burner so it took that much longer to get food. The manager was less than professional. the food was not good at all. We found out later that we were double charged on our credit card for the meal and had to go to our bank to get it taken off.
With all the other fondue restaurants in town, don't waste your time trying this one!
