La Fondue Restaurant Review

: Couples are happy to cozy up to a sultry cauldron of satisfying fare at La Fondue. Yes, the requisite pot of Swiss and Emmental cheeses melted with wine and a hint of nutmeg tops the menu, but diners can also try Cajun fondue with cheddar, beer, shrimp and spices, or "blue tomato" fondue with its hint of blue cheese and slivers of sun-dried tomatoes. Meat courses veer exotic with buffalo, kangaroo, wild boar filet, ostrich, venison and duck --- though less adventurous eaters can stick to shrimp, chicken and beef. Combination menus include a crisp salad and an entrée course where diners choose a meat and vegetable medley and a cooking method, such as table grill or bubbling bouillon. Thankfully, helpful servers are on hand to guide the way. Chocolate fondue is only available for purchasers of the combination dinner. The atmosphere is a bit too cozy for the kiddos, but four-legged friends can join their owners on the outdoor patio.
