I live right next door to the one in Hoboken, and it's not too bad. Just be prepared to pack an overnight bag because it's 2 hours minimum due to the fact you have to cook all your own food.

I've been to the one in Somerville. I hate the fact that they make you cook your own food. The meats came raw with a pot of boiling water. If I wanted to cook, I'd have done it at home! I paid them... to cook.

That said, the fondue and desserts are awesome. Next time I go I'll be skipping dinner and just eating fondue and dessert.

We've been there a couple of times. Just got the cheese and chocolate fondue and it was pretty scrummy. People at the next table were cooking shrimp which I thought was a joke. It's a good place to go for something different, but not what I would call an anniversary place.

I think it's short for scrumptuous. Or a combo of that and yummy.

I think you were confusing it with crummy or scummy...which is kind of ridonculous in a ginormous way

I've been to the one down here in the Orlando area. I thought it was wonderful. The speed of the meal is nice and slow to give alot of time for conversation.

I highly recommend the chocolate fondue for dessert, it was wonderful. One Mothers day we went there and did all the three courses.
