A very fun and tasty place to go for a long supper - Edit

Great place to have a long meal with friends. If you order the vegan option, you will get an appi course that includes cauliflower, zucchini, and potatoes or some variations, bread and apples, and a main course which is probably in veg broth that will have tofu and mushrooms, and a (dark) chocolate course with fruit). Oh, and there's a soup. I find it incredibly tasty, incredibly fun, and it's the kind of place where you are not left out for being a vegan. You get your courses right alongside those of your omni friends. The service is usually excellent, though the typical thing is to order cheeses/chocolates in pairs and once or twice I've had servers not know how to accommodate my being able to have only one choice when my fellow diners want others. But that is rare, and I think when you explain, they get it.

Pros: Unique dining, Tasty

Cons: QUITE expensive

Great Food & Service, Will Leave Full on Weekends - Edit

Went there on Good Friday with a mixed group of meat eaters and vegetarians. The service was great and the host was very attentive and aware of vegan diets including offering a butter substitute. The vegan cheese fondue was so good and so was the chocolate desert fondue. They continually came to our table offering more veggies, bread and fruit. It was also fun to cook our own food on hot stones.
On weekends each guest must order the four course meal which can get pricey but you will leave stuffed. I will go back on a weekday to order a smaller meal and on special occasions on weekends.

Pros: Great friendly service, Good Vegan "Cheese" and chocolate., Unique dining experience.

Cons: Must order 4 course meal on weekends, Not wheelchair accessible (I believe).

About as Vegan Friendly as Saskatoon Gets - Edit

For the fondue, the Upstairs used to declare right on the menu which options were vegan with a "V" but that has now been removed. So you will have to ask. When I mentioned I was vegan to my waitress she was really helpful. The "cheese" fondue was okay...I've made better myself at home but I still appreciate the novelty of ordering a vegan fondue in Saskatoon. The soups are excellent, I really recommend the chickpea-sun dried tomato one they always seem to have. For the main course, you can get faux chicken/beef and various veggies. Most of their chocolate fondues are vegan as well.

I've never been there for lunch, so I can't comment on their non-fondue menu.

Pros: vegan options, nice place to go, friendly staff

Cons: expensive, vegan options not clearly labelled

Vegan Fondue -- I LOVE IT!!! - Edit

I've never had fondue before and didn't even think that vegan fondue was an option. Very nice atmosphere and the menu actually indicates what is vegan and what isn't which is great. One option is a prix-fixe menu with 4 courses. First the appetizer which involves some veggies and fruit and vegan bread with a vegan cheese sauce (made with tofutti), next is the soup or salad course (i had the delicious sun-dried chickpea soup), next is the main course which involves your choice of 3 options (broccoli, falafel, vegan mock meats, mushrooms, cauliflower) it is served with delicious potatoes. The platter is brought with many different dips (all vegan i.e. salsa, teriyaki etc) and you cook it in the oil (or hot rocks). FInally the dessert which is fruit that you dip into the chocolate fondue (many vegan options, creme de menthe, peanut butter). The dessert is HEAVENLY. One of the best things I've ever tasted. The martinis are good too and the menu actually indicates which martinis are vegan. This is a really nice restaurant and the service was really good and friendly. They also sell various vegan wraps and soups if you don't want the prix-fixe menu. Because this is fondue it's not a quick meal but if you are looking for a nice time out and to try something different this is the place to go. I went on a Monday but the place was pretty busy. I think reservations are normally needed. Because you have to walk upstairs to get to the restaurant it isn't appropriate for someone in a wheelchair. Definitely one of the most interesting meal experiences I've ever had and the food was great!!!!! Our meal for 2 prix fixe dinners and 4 drinks was about $100

Pros: Something Different, Food & Drinks Superb, Nice & Friendly Atmosphere

Cons: Not wheelchair accessible
