Editorial Review

This new branch of the classic fondue chain offers the usual choices of cheese with bread and vegetables, sizzling meat in several sauces and gooey chocolate goodness with fruit, marshmallows and brownies.

The new Gaithersburg location takes the place of the old Rockville restaurant. The new spot offers several updates such as newly designed inset glass burners at the bar for those who don't wish to sit at tables or who want quick access to the restaurant's specialty drinks. In addition to the standard two-top and four-top fondue tables, the restaurant features a lovers lane of two-person booths, large round booths that can seat eight, and a private party room for up to 40 people.
