    The menu is Fondue and they do it well. Service was fine, informal and informative. Coupled with the jazz it makes for a nice evening out.

      Thanks, I ended up cancelling my reservation when no one answered their phone to confirm or deny what I had read concerning couples having to sit at a fondue bar and that tables were reserved for larger parties. Can you confirm that policy?

        If you reserve on Opentable.com, you get the following message when you select your reservation time:

        "We offer several types of tables for fondue dining. Bar Seating, Indoor Dining Room Seating and Patio Seating. Please select which type of table you would prefer in the Maitre D box below so that we can best accommodate your reservation with us."

        I had forgotten to do that and when the three of us showed up, they first tried to steer us to the bar, but when I asked for one of the tables, they accomodated us immediately. I did see some couples at tables, but we did get there about an hour prior to the music starting and it was a Thursday night, so I'm not sure if it would be different on a Friday or Saturday night.

        Probably best to confirm for a particular evening, which I know you tried to do.
