Fun with Friends
The Melting Pot is always a fun experience. They recently changed up their menu, so we had to be reintroduced to ordering the main portion again. Our waiter seemed new (even though he didn't state that), so he was a little confusing explaining it. They only offered specialty drinks listed on the new menu. And when asked about a specific wine, he ended up bringing the old wine list over and that had all the specialty drinks I remembered, but I order my stand by Martini already. When we ordered the wine, he clearly wasn't trained on how to present it. He simply poured everyone a glass. Overall, he was great and we let him slide with the wine since he was new . Cheese and dessert is ALWAYS outstanding! Pricey, but worth it

I have been to The Melting
I have been to The Melting Pot - Bedford twice, and both times have been great experiences. Not many restaurants give you the opportunity to be so involved in the preparation of your food, it is truly unique. Our waitress was very friendly and extremely helpful in our choices and how to properly cook the main course. When you get your food it never looks like enough, but the flavors, and the time to cook the food in the broth leaves you full before you finish. The restaurant is quite expensive, such that I wouldn't go but once a year on special occasions. But I think that on those occasions, given that it is more of an experience than just a meal, is certainly worth it

A pleasant surprise!
This restaurant has really worked to improve their pricing and their food consistency. The menu has been revised, the pricing lowered, and we really thought the quality of the food was improved. The service was exemplary (Thank you Keira!) and we had a lovely evening. Previously, this was a restaurant my children chose for birthday celebrations, but after our meal last week, I would revisit more frequently. The leisurely pace is nice, but it did take us 2.5 hours to finish our four course meal. Great for conversation and fun with teens.

Overall it was a fun experience.
Overall it was a fun experience. The little, private booths are nice and comfortable and the food is unique since you don't eat fondue everyday.
The negatives were the time we had to wait to be seated. We got there on time for our 6:15 reservation, but they told us they had to seat other parties before us (there were only 2 other parties waiting and many open tables) and we ended up waiting 15 minutes. What's the point of having a reservation if you have to wait anyway? My husband and I also didn't like the weird yellow light above the tables. It was meant to be romantic, but we found it harsh.

Great for the fondue experience,
Great for the fondue experience, but not something I would do regularly. Expect about $50 a head.

Cute little booths for two
Cute little booths for two in an area I heard a server call "Lover's Lane." Clever design for couples to increase privacy in the dining room.
Service was great, and even though we were 30 minutes late for our reservation we were seated right away.
Our server was friendly but not clingy, offered recipe tips for making fondue at home, and alternate drink suggestions when the bar was out of an ingredient for the drink I ordered.
Everything about my time there was wonderful. I have nothing negative to say about The Melting Pot.

One of the best restaurants
One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. You'll just have to see for yourself.

Great place for dinner
The Melting Pot was a wonderful surprise for me. I had remember them from the old days and was curious what I would find on my return. The food was very good, actually well balanced and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. The service was good and I most certainly will return.
A great place for groups and get togethers and a lot of fun.
Try it - you will love it

Excellent food, great for birthdays
As always, the melting pot is a great place for special occasions. What failings there may be with service, are always made up in the amazing food and fun of eating it all (not to mention the calories on my beltline).

our melting pot experience.
My husband and I went to the melting pot on May 13 for our first anniversary. We had been to the one in Sarasota Florida and love it. I just realized while using open table that there are melting pots in our area and was so excited. I must say, everything was perfect during our dining experience. The food, service, and ambience was outstanding. I will recommend it to all of my friends and family and plan to go back soon .

Great for special occasions
We had a lot of fun at the Melting Pot. The food was very good and the service was great. I particularly loved the private dining feel as each booth is completely sectioned off with walls. I wish more restaurants did this actually as it makes for a nice intimate dining experience where you can have a conversation and not have to hear the next tables conversation as well.

Fun for kids!
My kids (ages 8 and 10) always pick Melting Pot for their special birthday dinner...interactive, yummy fun.

Worth hunting down promotions
We went as part of the two dine for 49.99 promotion, which is a savings of about $25. Since it included cheese fondue, salad, & the fondue entree, but not dessert, this is the 1st time in a long time we've walked out instead of rolling out!
We tried the fiesta cheese fondue. It was delicious, but too spicy for me -it said on the menu that we could choose the heat level, but we didn't get any options.
I'm loving being able to choose my own dippers for the entree. The chicken potstickers & spinach & artichoke ravioli are awesome -I order them every time, w/ the third option being a wild card (filet mignon is often the choice).
Everything is always very good, but generally expensive, so promotions are worth searching and waiting for.

This was really different, the idea of going out to eat is to have someone do the cooking for you. This style of dining does defeat that purpose. It was fun I have to admit but it's not something I would do very often. And despite cooking your own food the prices are a bit steep.

The Whole Package
This restaurant is awesome! I love coming here with my friends, family and significant other. It always fits!

The concept is great and fun! Very pricey:( Great for a special occasion, it is definitely a great experience, something everyone should try at least once:) Waitstaff is very knowledgeable and helpful:)

The food was delicious, the service was excellent and personal. I called ahead to let them know that it was going to be a birthday dinner and was able to arrange for flowers and a card to be waiting at the table. The owner came to our table and asked the birthday girl what kind of music she would like to listen to. We had a wonderful time, and the birthday girl felt very special.

Fun but pricey
Very quiet, dined on a Tuesday nite, wait staff excellent -- a bit expensive $100+ for two but a pleasant evening. Our 4th time eating here

Special Occasion Treat!
Makes for such fun! Definitely arrive hungry and plan to spend a few bucks, but you can't beat the high quality ingredients that go into the delicious broth, making you savor every bite. Save room for the chocolate!

Great Anniversary Dinner
This was a great place to take my wife for our 41st Anniversary. I was fairly quiet and very intimate. Brian, the owner, was happy to arrange for a dozen roses to surprise my wife. The service was outstanding and the food was wonderful! Its at the top of our list for very special occasions.

Amazing job on an awesome concept!
The concept is so cool and the great food really backs it up. Every course we had was amazing, and the meat was great quality. We sat at one of the tables that is totally secluded from every other table - it's like in it's own little room - and we both loved it. It was like a private dining experience. The only issue was that our waitress took a little too long every time she left us and we were unable to flag her down because we were in our own little room. Other than that, fantastic food and great experience. I will definitely be back & recommending this to my friends.

Melting Pot is always a treat.
Melting Pot is always a treat. Fondue is so much fun, but not something you want to do at home.
There sauces and toppings make it a delight. I always come away feeling very full.
