I was wondering if anyone has thoughts on this restaurant. I've been in Austin for fourteen years but there was a Simple Fondue in Addison when I lived in that area. Is this the same group? Does this place compare favorably to the Melting Pot?

    I have not been to the Melting Pot, so i can't really compare, but i have been to the Simply Fondue in Lewisville. I don't know if this is the same group. I looked at their locations, and they didn't list an Addison location. I know Melting Pot has a location on Belt Line. Anyway, when i went to Simply Fondue, it was almost empty. We did the four course house special for two cooked in the traditional style. I know we got chicken, stuffed mushrooms, shrimp...and i honestly can't remember what else because i had a few too martinis that night. I did like this place a lot, but my judgment might have been a little clouded. It never seems busy when i pass it.

      I've eaten at both within the last 6 months, and I (and three others) prefer Simply Fondue in Lewisville. The ingredients were better quality and better prepared, and the spice packages were better.

        I agree - I like Simply Fondue much better than Melting Pot. They definitely have more choices than MP.

        (Simply Fondue used to be where the Melting Pot is now in Addison.)

        Both are a GYP! Avoid them unless you want to impress someone with overpaying for affected service and mediocre grub. Yeech!
