    Went for my birthday, first time. It was amazing! My husband and I both loved it - it was a fun and romantic experience, and the food was great. The menu was confusing, but the server was very helpful explaining it and providing suggestions. I am gluten free (celiac) and they have a separate menu to accommodate. The server was also knowledgeable and attentive to my diet, and since a lot of the food is prepared at the table (so you can see what goes into everything) I felt pretty safe. To be extra cautious in the kitchen, she confirmed the severity of my diet. In terms of food, everything tasted amazing. We had the cheddar fondue as a starter, shared an entrée (my husband loved the curry dipping sauce), and then ended with dessert. It is a bit pricey, but the food quality was really good and it was a great experience.
