I hadn’t had fondue in years and was traveling for business when my colleague and I discovered this quirky restaurant. All 3 fondues on the Prix Fixe menu were excellent. We started with the perigord cheese one and ordered an extra side of veggies. The maitre brought us extra bread as well. Delicious, rich and stayed properly gooey until the last bite. The meat fondue, for which we chose the canola oil, with pork loin and filet, was also very good and the portion was also appropriately sized following the very rich cheese. Finally, the dark chocolate was a delicious finish, with fresh, well chosen fruit and some tiny cake slices. We left feeling we’d had a lovely rich meal but not overstuffed because the portion sizes were perfect. And, of course, there is the entertainment value of a bubbling pot on the table. Built in burners on the tabletops keeps everything at the right temperature (and avoids the smell that sometimes occurs with open flame from solid fuel on the table). Charming. Would do it again...
Good fondue. Ugly place
The food was delicious! However the service was not that great! The host sat us but never came back to check in on us but she did check in on the other tables. It is not a kid-friendly place because when one of the children was just looking at the candle holder he was swiftly approached by person who works there to remind him that the item he was holding was made out of glass. Then when the waiter was taking our order he quickly jumped to assume and conclude that we were going to share the prix fixe options. The waiter by the end did turn it around and provided us with many extra bread and he was friendly! It has us thinking if the treatment was based on how we were dressed! I am not sure if I would go back or recommend it to others!
AMAZING. The $52 Prix Fixes was worth every penny. Would also recommend the Savoie Blanc if you want to get a wine :)
Small place, a little tricky to find. Went for my birthday with my boyfriend. The waiter guessed it was my birthday and put a candle on a dessert. Very cute place. Would go again.
Very good food; hospitable service; funky/charming ambiance; good value. We discovered this place on our last trip to nyc in September and the latest in April reinforced the good memories. The restaurant is two restaurants, really: a rustic French one with a separate name through which you are escorted to the Fondue room/restaurant. The French side looked good, too, and we will try that next time in town— if we can turn our backs on that wonderful fondue.
Had a great time. Quiet, cozy spot. Beautiful atmosphere.
Service was great. Friendly staff and very attentive. Both food and drink were excellent. Pricing was just right. It felt romantic and cozy. My only complaint is that the seating is a bit tight. Other than that, 5 stars. Will definitely be visiting again.
I had no idea NYC had a fondue restaurant until I found this one! It is definitely worth it for the price ($52 pp). You get unlimited croutons/salad and dessert plate until you finish your fondue. It was very filling and it was a great experience. Would I come back again? Possibly but not for awhile. It was fun and great date idea that lasts a solid 2 hours. It would be nice if they accepted other major credit cards though.
Amazing food, great service, beautiful date idea!!!
Excellent food and a fun experience. There was no wait for our reservation and we were not rushed at all. The waiter was so helpful with our choices. Each dish was very good and filling.
We went here for a belated Valentine’s Day dinner and we are so happy that we did! The food was all delicious. We got the prix fixe menu and ordered the Perigord cheese, we added four extra sides, got the hanger steak and filet mignon with red wine broth, and got milk chocolate for dessert.
The cheese was out of this world amazing and we got the potatoes, broccoli, pears, and chorizo as extras to the croutons and salad, and it was beyond perfect. We enjoyed every bit. The meat was good, but of course, could not compare to the cheese and chocolate. The chocolate was also awesome, and came with a variety of dippers. The banana bread was my favorite.
Hope to come back for other special occasions!
Wonderful food! I went with my sister and cousin and we all had a great time. This is the perfect setting for a date night.
The food was amazing!! Well worthy the price!
Food was delicious but we had a reservation for 7:30 that they pushed back to 8 and then pushed again to 8:30. We got there at 8:30 and then still had to wait 20 minutes. They were very nice and apologetic and said they comp us something, which they did, but only after I reminded them. The food was really delicious, but eating a huge, heavy fondue dinner after 9 pm wasn’t ideal.
Amazing food and atmosphere. Lovely waitress. Be prepared to be there for at least 2-3 hours. It is a long meal with long breaks in between courses, but you need the breaks because it is heavy. I recommend the truffle flavored one for the cheese course and the filet mignon with red wine broth for the second course.
I've had the fondue experience before, but this was the best yet. The food was surprisingly good and fresh. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The whole experience gets an A+ from me.
We really had a great time. Love the simplicity of the menu, makes ordering a breeze. Enough variety to keep you coming back to try different cheeses. Food was delicious and the whole experience was chill. A very nice restaurant yet no frills. Just a really comforting low key vibe and perfect date night spot. Loved it!
We spent a really nice evening.
The setup was perfect!
And the perigord cheese fondu is amazing!
AJ was a great server, very informative and friendly on top of being attentive. We got a bottle of wine which made the meal about $200 after tip which is a bit pricey but worth it. Had a great time
It was wonderful overall! I haven’t had fondue in years and this experience has made me appreciate it evermore. Great and very courteous service!
Went with 2 friends and we had a great experience. We ordered 2 2-course prix fixe dinners which included a first course of cheese fondue, bread and salad, and second course of choice of meat, which you cook at the table in pots of hot oil or red wine broth, and one 3-course prix fixe which also included chocolate fondue for dessert! Since we got 3 dinners, we were able to choose 2 cheeses and 3 meats. We got the hangar steak, filet mignon and pork tenderloin. The steaks were the best! But everything was delicious and we left stuffed to the gills! Our server was super friendly and helpful.
I would highly recommend, especially on a chilly winter's night.
Food is so delicious and fun. Staff is friend but very few (2) servers for the whole place. Be prepared to spend 2 hours here - which is long but allows you to eat more and waste less of the dipping sauces.
Outstanding dinner! Most fondue restaurants I’ve been to deliver on the cheese and chocolate courses but fail on the main course. Taureau delivers top quality food satisfaction across the board. Get the slab bacon topping with the cheese...
Went for my daughter’s 12th birthday, and her sister wants to come back in the Spring for her’s.
We love Fondue and did the 3 dinner option. It was excellent. The service was very good and the ambiance is great. We chose it for an early New Year's Eve dinner and was perfect. Have already recommended it and will definitely be back.
Went to have fondue and the food's great and authentic
We love Taureau. We’ve been there way too many times but won’t stop going.
Really enjoyed our 3-course dinner at Taureau. The traditional fondue was especially good. Service was excellent. A great venue for meeting old friends.
We were limited to choosing from two set menus. We were not allowed to share the meat fondu with our children otherwise we would be charged double. Expensive, average meal with no ambience.
Great place, i enjoyed food and music. Staff was very hopeful regarding the menu.
Excellent service. The food is amazing. Perfect for dates and quiet conversation!
Oh baby was this place a tasty treat!!
Very nice little fondue restaurant. Food was well prepared and the service was great. Wine list was nice, since it had inexpensive and expensive wines available. Note that the only credit card they take is American Express.
There were some rowdy children there, but the staff handled them as best they could. They managed to still make our night feel special with skipping 8 year olds making them hold their breath. A little disappointed that fruits that I did not like couldn't be substituted for the ones I did.
There are not a lot of fondue options in New York City. This place is hidden behind an adorable French restaurant so it feels like you are in the know to be able to find it. It’s very small and intimate. And you are sharing food so also romantic. The cheese options were amazing. The service was great. There are good options for vegetarians (vegans need not bother). We had a lovely romantic birthday dinner before heading to City Winery (2 blocks away) for a show. We were so full we could not even finish the cheese or chocolate. They are generous with both as well as the things to dip in. It’s price fix only. No Visa or MC but they called me ahead of time to let me know that.
Delicious fondue with a great selection of different cheeses. The restaurant has a great ambiance.
Lovely little restaurant and the fondue was delicious! Our waiter was great and provided suggestions to help us choose the best fondue. We enjoyed ourselves a lot!
Pot of cheese was huge, main course not so much. It was good, but overpriced in my opinion. And feels more like a factory than a fun, unique dining experience.
