A great Mother's Day experience!!
It was a great place to spend Mother's Day! The atmosphere was perfect for us to enjoy each other's company with the feel of real privacy but feeling like everything we needed or wanted was there for us in the way of food, drinks and service.
I have already highly recommended The Melting Pot to many of my friends. They are already looking forward to having their own experience there soon!

Great food but little food
Great food, and it was more kids friendly than I thought. But it took a lot of time to eat... very slow process... It would be a great for a special occasion, such as dates etc. The best part was desert!!

Really different and very enjoyable. Romantic, not rushed, terrific food, can't ask for more than that

We have enjoyed the Melting Pot dining experience in several locations around the country. You can always count on you meal being fantastic.

Had a great experience at The Melting Pot.
I heard that it was pricey from people I knew.
It could not have been further from the truth.
It was the best date night place imaginable.
Great fondue. Great ambiance.
Best thing to do is have the Cheese fondue a la carte
then head to the chocolate one. If you have the entree and salad,
you will be too full :)

Great service,wonderful flavors
We went on Saturday, 5/18 for our son's 16th birthday. With four people in our party, we were able to get a very nice spacious booth with two fondue pots. We each ordered something different, which is different from last years menu, we enjoyed this especially me, because I don't like red meat and had seafood, the lobster was wonderful. Desert is always a special treat, my son enjoyed milk chocolate covered everything! The server was very friendly and treated my son as though it was his special day.

I can't say enough about this place. It was truly amazing. The experience was completely worth every penny we spent. Our waitress was incredible and even the manager stopped by to ask how things were. The food was delicious! We can't wait to go back but this time bringing more friends. Everybody must try this place!
5/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation time and was promptly seated. The waitress was very knowledgeable. We went with the four course experience and found the portions looked small but after the meal we were both well satisfied.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was amazing as always and the waitor was pleasant and personable. We were seated in the section they call "Lover's Lane," which is a private section with tables for two. We were celebrating our anniversary so it was the perfect setting to have a quiet, intimate dinner where we could focus on each other and not what was going on around us. We loved every minute of it and would recommend this to anyone.

First Time with Fondue
This was my first time with fondue and Melting Pot made it a great experience. Highly recommend the coq-au-vin cooking pot technique (it is an extra $6 per pot, but is worth it). We had the cheddar cheese, steak, chicken, and ended with chocolate smores for dessert. I would recommend all of them.

My wife and I spent our 10 year anniversary dinner here and it was great. The service was outstanding and the food was equally as good. I would recommend the melting pot over and over.

Special occasion destination
This is a gem! Perfect for a romantic evening in their private lovers lane booths or for double dates. Booths are spacious and yet intimate. They are also extremely good at accommodating multiple food allergies. This place is a must but give yourself a few hours to do it right with the four course experience!
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Every time I have been here its been stellar! Great service, great food!

AMAZZZZING, FUN, FOOD!!!!
My best friend of 20 years and I get together for our Ladies Night Melting Pot night every other month!! We both live in Leominster, MA and visit the Framingham restaurant. We absolutely love it. We have the best time!! We always get the $25 Cocktail, Salad, Cheese, and Chocolate!!! Sooooo yummy!!! And more than enough food. From the Hostess to the Waitstaff( Melted yumminess magicians), to the Bartentender (Cocktail Magician), everyone is wonderful!!! It's like hanging out with friends. Wendy and I often get together and study the menu before our visit and plan our night. We are currently working our way through the melty goodness. Thank you thank you thank you for being part of our girls night out!!! Jessie

Absolutely Loved It!
My husband and I celebrated my birthday here. We both loved it! Everything was great and we can't wait to go back again!
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Romantic & Intimate
We didn't know what to expect and found the seating alcoves very nice. Wait staff explained the fondue concept and service moved along on just the right amount of time. We had the four course fondue, cheese fondue, salad, main course, and chocolate fondue. All fondue courses were yummy, especially the chocolate fondue. Wine list was short but had enough to choose from. All in all a great experience & We would go back for a special occasion as the prices were a little high.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This location is consistantly
This location is consistantly good, although expensive two adults and two children, no alchohol cane out to over $150 before. Tip. Thats quite steep for a casual meal.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome!!! Also had GLUTEN
Awesome!!! Also had GLUTEN FREE! A lot of choices! Food was EXCELLENT! Going back next weekend
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place!
I always enjoy dining here for special occasions as this restaurant makes them seem even more special. The food is outstanding and there's just something rather romantic cooking fondue with the one you love.

Great pick for birthday dinner
Amazing dinner, great pick for a special occassion!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent service, excellent food. Our party had a great time!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
I thought the seating arrangement was perfect because if it was just a couple they were secluded into a quiet dim lit area, as groups were seated in a wider more open area. The service along with the food was incredible and definitively recommend it to everyone looking for a great night out and a unique dining experience.

Food Event Dining
OK - I'll start with my only negative. The ordering process can be complex, especially if you have never been before and reconciling the choices for a group requires some thought.
Now that said, after 4 or more visits, I still love the place - superb food quality, a fun experience (especially great for kids or groups) and we have never had anything other than absolutely first rate service. This visit we had the blue cheese and cheddar cheese fondues, then a mixture of vegetarian and mixed meat fondues with the standard cooking stock and tempura style oil - everything was first rate.
The drinks menu and bar service are excellent too.
I would definitely recommend.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A girl's night out celebrating a milestone birthday brought us to The Melting Pot. It was worth the hour drive, our waitperson Maria was very attentive, and a lot of fun. This was the first visit for our group and Maria walked us through the menu and selection process. The food was good, and we had a great celebration.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not just melted chocolate...
I thought this was just a desert place. To my surprise it is not. First, this can be intimate or a small gathering. You get a 4 course meal. 1. The app, or here its a selection of cheese that you melt in your own pot. 2. Your salad selection, not bad. 3. The main entree, I am not a seafood eater so I went for the meat lovers selection, however they do offer different seafood selections. 4. Desert and you guessed it, chocolate. Small selection but I choose the Dark chocolate. I didn't want it to be too sweet. This menu selection is best way to go for those of us who are new to idea of The Melting Pot. Price is a little higher than expected but, it was good. If I remember its about $40/person. Not bad but, a better if $30/person.

great service by Beth @ Framingham Ma.
great experience and food......
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun for special night out
The melting pot is not somewhere you'd go for a "quick bite", but if you have the time and are in the mood for something fun and different, it is a great choice. The service is great, the food outstanding, and the experience is different and fun. Be sure to go hungry (there is a ridiculous amount of food if you get the 4 course meal), and bring your patience as it takes a while to get through it all. The only ding is the temperature in the room - it was hot and steamy on a hot summer night. I think this is a tough one to fix given that you're cooking on the table and there's lots of steam and heat, but cranking the A/C would have been a nice touch.

A place for special occasion
This was a birthday dinner for my wife and we were given the choice of an relatively intimate 2 person booth that was shielded from other diners (a nice quiet setting). Our waitperson was very attentive and explained everything clearly to us as this was our first time at this restaurant. I don't think I ever had such an attentive waitperson in 50 years of dining out. The meal was a bit pricey but seems in line for a place you would go to for a special occasion.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE THIS PLACE!!!
I love the Melting Pot. The food is amazing! Pricey, but worth it!
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and a great experience
Everything was wonderful, flavorful and fun to prepare.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great, but so expensive!
My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant, although the only way we were able to go was because we had a Living Social deal. While we were both pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, the cost of the fondue really adds up. It could easily be a $150 night out for us, and if we brought the kids..! So, while I loved it and would go back, I think I could only do so with one of those deals.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun night out, but quite pricey
New menu is great, staff as always very attentive but it's gotten even more pricey. Save up and enjoy the evening out!
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect for date night!
I always love coming here, whether it's for an anniversary or occasion, of just because my boyfriend and I want to have a date night. It's always quiet, the setting is perfect for a couple, especially where the restaurant is set up with tables of two, and the wait staff is phenomenal. The food is to die for and overall, I love coming here.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
perfect for a birthday celebration
we dined on a quiet night, the restaurant practically empty. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We had cheese fondue, a salad, and chocolate fondue. Just the right amount for two ladies celebrating a birthday. The fondue was yummy. It is a fun place to eat. Not really suitable for kids. A special occasion place.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Melting Pot
The food was excellent with service almost as good. Their wine list was extensive and their cocktails were delicious. I wouldn't go as far as to say they are kid-friendly, but they try. Perfect place for date night. It is pricy, but well worth it.

Heaven For Fondue Lovers
We were looking for a nice dinner before attending a concert in Boston. We're fondue lovers, but had never had the occasion to eat here. From the moment we were seated at our very private and cozy booth, we were well cared for by our waiter, Chris. As is their tradition, our Swiss fondue was prepared on our own personal stove "in" our table. The fondue was served with veggies, Granny Smith apples and various breads for dipping. While the norm seemed to be a "4 course meal", we opted to bypass the full meal so we would have room for dessert. It was a good plan as we were ready for our Dark Chocolate dessert fondue. Served with various fruits and treats such as brownies and pound cake, our meal was complete. We will certainly be back.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff at Melting Pot helped make this the perfect evening for a special occasion. We were greeted with specific celebratory mention and treated with world class food and service. Melting Pot is a wonderful one-of-a-kind spot for a relaxed memorable meal.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Its fun and interactive
Serving sizes aren't that large. I thought the prices were a little high for the food. I think you are paying more for the experience. The food was good. The service was very good. I would go back again.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Something different, but pricey
The menu is a little confusing and takes a few minutes to understand for a first timer. The wait staff went through it too quick without taking the time to explain. However, once we got over that hurdle, it was a very good experience. Something very different from your everyday restaurant. It was fun seeing the cheese melt in front of you and then the food getting ready. Simple yet delicious.
I found the restaurant to be on the pricey side for the decor, quantity of food, wait staff experience and the overall ambiance. Otherwise it was a very good experience.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service getting spotty
We've been to the Melting Pot many times. In the couple years, the service has gotten spottier; the wait staff knows the mechanics but either drags it out too long (nearly 2hr from seating to finishing dessert + getting check) or doesn't give enough time. This past visit, the salads were served before we finished our cheese course. It took probably 1 hr 30 minutes from seating to finishing dessert. For us, I think around 1h45min is about right (less feels rushed, more feels like we have too much dead time between courses), and no one ever seems to get that. Also, they don't seem knowledgeable about the alcohol menu.
Finally, the burners are getting old and are noisy. One time it was so bad we had to move; last time not quite that bad.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A special experience
Outstanding service and a truly unique dining experience. The staff acknowedged our special event and gave us the royal treatment.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had had our engagemnet party, rehersal dinner, and now our one year wedding anniversay all at The Melting Pot in Framingham. The service is fantastic and you are never forgotten about. The food speaks for itself and the menu can satify any one's cravings. We received a hand signed card of all the staff congragulating us on our anniversary, which was really touching given our history with this restaurant. We can't wait to spend year number two there also!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
We have dined at the Melting Pot before and have never been let down, but this time was probably the best experience we had yet. All of the food was amazing, the service was fast, and the noise level was good for a date night. Only complaint is that I wish they gave more bread instead of chips with the cheese.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was wonderful. Service GREAT! Always have such a great time here! My favorite place.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Birthday Night
Celebrated my daughter's 17th birthday there on a Tuesday night. We were greeted at the door, the staff was extremely friendly. There was a birthday card at the table. The waitstaff was helpful and friendly. The food was great. My 17 and 13 year olds love the fondue novelty. The restaurant was a little pricey for a regular visit, but for a special occasion, I would highly recommend.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Makes for a leisurely meal.
Cooking at the table made for a interesting and delicious night. Our waiter was wonderful!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great night out with friends!
My friends and I (whom I have not seen in several months) went to The Melting Pot in Framingham this past weekend and we enjoyed every moment of it. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was amazing. This was the perfect place for us to catch up and enjoy the night. We will definately be going back again soon! The food was a bit pricey, but given the atmosphere and the amount of food we enjoyed, it was worth it!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food but pricey! Good for special occasions or wait until restaurant week to get a three course meal for bargain prices
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM

Food was good, kid friendly, a bit pricy but good for a novel dinning experience. Was a bit chilly inside.
