What You'll Get
Fondue combines two of humans' most primal instincts—poking things with sharp sticks and correcting an errant neighbour's mispronunciation of "spoon." Indulge in these innate desires with today's Groupon. For $25 you get $50 worth of fondue and drinks at The Upstairs Fondue Restaurant on 8th Street E.
The Upstairs Fondue Restaurant melds a fun, interactive dining experience and a romantic setting where cheese dippers and chocolate dunkers can indulge in multiple courses of warm, gooey goodness. The complete four-course fondue menu ($39) starts with a soup or salad course, then oozes into the cheese fondue course, which offers a choice of Swiss garlic, cheddar bacon, or tomato herb (a dairy free alternative) dipping implements. The entrée fondue course includes a wide selection of meats and vegetables to indulge with a boiling bath of canola oil, a nap on hot rock, or a steep in a ginger wine vegetable broth for taste bud-friendly tenderizing. The final course finds a variety of tasty treats being slathered in the warm embrace of dark, white or milk chocolate, as well as butterscotch for mouths that prefer a stickier challenge than chocolate can offer. The Upstairs also serves a multitude of liquid libations such as wine by the glass ($7 – $12) and creative martinis ($7). The warmly hued walls and dimly lit dining room make Upstairs a ideal setting for a date or date adjacent eavesdropping.

About Ufondue & Stonegrill Restaurant
At Ufondue & Stonegrill Restaurant, guests savour cheesy and chocolaty fondues in a merlot-tinted dining room peppered with high-back chairs and cozy booths. Within this elegant, romance-inducing atmosphere, chefs churn out a signature four-course fondue feast. The interactive meal commences with soup or salad before segueing into cheese fondue, which beckons couples to dunk french baguettes and seasonal veggies into bubbling pots of gooey swiss cheese or smoked aged cheddar. Vegetarian- and carnivore-friendly entrees arrive next, ready for guests to spear morsels of beef, tofu, or seafood on a fork and cook them to personal perfection in hot oil. Finally, servers position themselves tableside to flambé dark-chocolate-infused fondue with a night light to protect diners from bad dreams. Any of Ufondue & Stonegrill Restaurant's items can also be enjoyed without the four-course commitment, as can glasses of wine and creative martinis and cocktails.
