Fantastic Food & Service
Excellent food - such fun fondues - and the service was Excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant for something different and fun! Additionally - the dessert fondue Yin & Yang was "over the moon" ... can't wait to go again!

Wonderful for a birthday!
Perfect, as always! When we arrived, there was a birthday card waiting on the table for my daughter. Then at desert time, they brought out a cute plate that had "Happy 9th Birthday" written in green gel icing. She had a Rice Krispie treat with a candle on the plate as well.

Katie was our server and she was amazing! For only 2month of working there she was a pro! Made the night that much more special ! Our night was so special because of the Melting Pot's great service! In my online reservation I requested a private and quiet table for my now fiance and I's 2 year anniversary! When we arrived we were taken to the wine table, a very private and quiet space!! On our table we found a nice card wishing us a happy anniversary! With the Melting Pot's help this was the perfect night to celebrate a soldier coming home and a special begining!

1st Year Anniversary Dinner
Decided to go here for our first year anniversary dinner. Have never been here before. In the reservation, I made a note that it was our 1 year anniversary dinner. The host when asking about our reservation said Happy Anniversary too us upon entering. We were seated at a nice secluded booth, and also, received a nice anniversary card that was waiting for us at our table. The waitress was nice, and we ordered a great special (two can dine with wine for $59). The meal was not only delicious, but fun! There really is no waiting for your meal, as you get to slowly eat it as the courses roll out. All fresh ingredients are seperately combined in front of you. The whole evening was a great experience. Now we need to return for dessert soon!

Food was delicious and it
Food was delicious and it was a fun experience. You definitely need to set aside some time to dine here; especially if you want to have all four courses.

Sarah was a SUPER excellent
Sarah was a SUPER excellent server. They've also redone the menu since we were last there and changed the "big night out" option to individual instead of "for two," which was a welcome change. Not the cheapest place, but worth the price.

This is our favorite choice for special occasions because it is so much fun to cook our delicious food in the fondue pot at the table. It gives us time to relax and enjoy each other as well. Anyone who has not eaten here needs to give it a try!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food and plenty of it!! We love fondue and this place does a good job.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great meal!
The Melting Pot is our go-to spot for special occasions. This time it was my wife's birthday. We brought the in-laws to make four. As always, the food, service, and atmosphere were outstanding. We will be back'

Had a Great Time
It was Curtis's birthday and the restaurant did a great job of making it special - without any silly stuff. The food was great. Our server, Sarah, was excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant particularly for a special occasion.

It never gets old
We really enjoy coming here. The menu changes often enough that it does not get old but at the same time they keep the favorites on the menu. We never feel rushed through dinner and we always leave full. This time we had the 4 course meal. My wife and I selected different items for the meat course I had one with lobster and she had the land and sea but since we both share we had plenty of different items to choose from. We also have cooking times down to a science. We find its best to just "float" the potatoes in the broth. Letting them cook, while we put faster cooking items on the skewers. We then use the spoon to fish them out when they are done. Service was perfect. We look forward to the next time.

This is my favorite resturant.
This is my favorite resturant. The food is always so wonderful and the servers are very friendly and knowledgeable. The decor is very inviting and romantic without being too loud.

Happy hour is the happiest hour
We happened to catch a date night couples coupon on the melting pot website, it was $45 per couple with 2 couples or more attending, It was a great three course meal at a way affoardable price. We were also extra thrifty and attended the happy hour about an hour before our meal time! The cocktails were fantastic, & the bartender was very nice and made great conversation! Our food was great for what it was! (at a discount) I have been here before and paid full price and the food was impressive, large quanities and very dedicant. The biggest reminder that I can give to folks is that you are paying for an experience, for romance and privacy. Also if you are looking for an inexpensive romantic time, attend the happy hour and grab a booth.

Wonderful service, excellent food
Very much enjoyed a girl's night out with a friend, sharing a 4-course fondue meal. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions (but not too pushy). Food selection was overwhelming and all delicious. Fondue is really fun and the atmosphere was quiet and intimate .
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Special Occassion!
The Melting Pot is a great special occassion restaurant with its quiet, romantic atmosphere and pricier menu. However we also make it a special place to take our kids for a "fancy" treat, dressing up and having a fun time sharing fondue!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not Fast Food
Unlike other restaurants, the goal is not to turn tables. This dining experience can take hours. The food is easy to prepare, fun to share, and filling. The service was prompt and helpful during all stages of the meal. It is expensive but worth it for the special occasion. A very nice experience overall.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
great spot for a quiet meal
Really enjoyed dining here. The service, food and atmosphere were aol great. The fondue took some time to cook but it really gave us time to talk. Great for spending time with your special someone.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Melting Pot made our "date night" a very romantic and much needed experience! !
With 4 kids and two demanding carrers we enjoyed ourselves for two hours.
Thank You!!!! We will be returning.

Even though some of the prices were high it really wasn't as pricey as we thought, and especially for all the food you get! My husband and I were waiting for a special occasion to go and we finally did.
Every course of our meal was amazing, and the waitress was so sweet. We went for our 2 Year Anniversary and she made us a little plate with Happy Anniversary on it!
I'm not sure if its because we just love our cheese but it was probably our favorite dinner yet. We will even try to make it back for just one of the single fondue's which is less expensive, because we loved it so much! Plus it was an actual experience, not just in, sit, eat , leave. The only thing is maybe the hostess could've been more friendly for such a nice place.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Notre expérience à la melting pot, était excellent. C'était un dîner romantique pour un occasion spécial. Leur fromage était délicieux avec les pains divers. Après ça, la salade était bon, mais le plat principal était superbe! Le bœuf teriyaki, nous mangeons ça très vite parce que le sauce était tangy et le qualité de la bœuf...excellente! En fin, le course du chocolaté, avec les desserts, mmm! Un vraiment bon expérience!

Unfortunately when we arrived
Unfortunately when we arrived for our reserved dinner time, the power had been taken out by a storm. The staff was very friendly and kept the bar open while we waited for the power to come back on. We were given bread with oil and vinegar to snack on, we ordered salads and drinks but were never able to eat our meal due to the power not coming back on. We were able to get reservations for another night and look forward to our date.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not only was the whole experience wonderful, I appreciated the way you treated my fiancé! Acknowledging his bday and giving him a card, that was a perfect touch. Thanks again!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Favorite all time restaurant
Yes, I think it could likely be my favorite. I love the ambiance, the time between courses and the great selection.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our dinner at the Melting Pot couldn't have been better. We had a helpful and friendly waitress and the food was excellent. It was the first time for us at this restaurant and was the first night of our vacation. It was great kick-off. Altogether our evening there was a wonderful experience!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date night!
This was a wonderful experience! The food was great and it was so much fun the only downside I would say is it is a bit pricey but other than that I would highly recommend it!

Definitely a different and pleasurable dining experience!

Truly an amazing experience. This was our first visit and we were very pleased. The fact that it was interactive was awesome. The food was wonderful. The staff accommodating when the first table wasn't going to work out for us. We will absolutely visit again.

stuck in a chimney
We were a party of two and I made the reservation a month before. When we arrived they directed us to a secluded "hole in the wall" that looked like a hollowed out chimney that with a weird triangular table and a cushion on one side (the only side someone could sit) that fit two people. There was a weird cold hard metal plate on the wall where the person sitting down would have to lean against. It was secluded but not very romantic. I asked if there was another table available and they said they were booked solid. The food was fine - the experience is what you're paying for. The veggie ingredients are not very imaginative (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots) and the bread seems kind of stale (maybe so it can hold up to being dipped in cheese).
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you're wanting to celebrate something or if you really just haven't had a special night out for yourself, you can go and Invite some friends and have a really good night. The food was amazing, the service was spectacular; we were all told exactly how to prepare our foods. Lots of variety for people to choose from. 5 out of 5 stars!
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been twice now within a month. The wait staff has been knowledgeable, capable, well-trained, and unobtrusive. The food is fun to cook, tasty, and beautifully presented. There was plenty, we cooked the leftovers and took them home where they were delicious in a salad! The dining area is beautiful and relaxing.

Fun dining experience
We went to the Melting Pot with our 10 and 13 year old boys and had a fabulous time! We ordered 3 of the 4-course classics and it was more than enough food for the 4 of us. We went for a Sunday lunch and the restaurant was quiet and very kid-friendly. We had excellent service and enjoyed every bit of our meal!
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for our Anniversary
My husband and I absolutely love fondue, so this restaurant was a give in for our special dinner. Our server, DJ (I believe) was phenomenal! He was fun, helpful, and very tentative. Overall, the food was wonderful, every course was delicious! I would recommend this restaurant over and over again, because the experiences we have had at this restaurant are always consistently good.

Saved birthdays for gluten-free kid
My boys have asked to go here for each birthday, then this year the youngest was diagnosed celiac. I thought, Uh-oh, and checked online. Imagine my glee when I discovered they have a complete and easy gluten free menu. And with only 2 hours notice they gave us a server who's been gluten free since teens so she and my son had a good time sharing food ideas and stories. They even had Udi's baked goods so he could have the full dessert. Awesome service!
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Memorable date night.
My husband and I went there for our 10th anniversary. Food was excellent. Shelley our waitress was friendly and helpful, as it was our first time there. Definitely would recommend.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had dinner at the Melting Pot as part of our "Honeymoon" weekend and this place is amazing! The service was spot on, the food was to die for and the ambiance was incredible--would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for something extra special, and we will most certainly be returning for our next special occiasion! The waitress even had the kitchen staff make us a special dessert plate with a sweet "Congratulations Lovebirds" written on the plate with icing, it was just wonderful!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to celebrate!
The Melting Pot in Boise was a great place to celebrate our anniversary. At first, it seemed like the portions might be kind of small, but by the time we got through all four courses, we were totally stuffed! Everything was delicious, and the service was great!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great birthday suprise
My son wanted homemade fondue for his 13th birthday, and fondue seems to always be a chore to do at home. We figured for this special occasion, the Melting Pot would be a great way to celebrate and give him what he wanted. We suprised him and he was OVERJOYED! It was a great experience for him and he tells us he wants to go every year. Yummy food but a bit pricey for us...over 100 dollars for 3 without any extra's or alcohol.

Great Food, Small Tables Squeezed
We ordered our food, the problem started when it came. In a table for 2 we kept trying to move things so we wouldn't knock things over.Cheese fondue was great, bread was a bit dry. Blackberry tea was amazing,too much ice, $5.00 a glass, it stung a bit with no free refills.Lesson learned.The pure, dark chocolate really good, I would liked more of an adult choice- no marshmallows/rice krispies. I would have liked to sub some even at a slightly higher price. Like more fresh fruit. A bit of a budget buster for some, but great for a special occasion. The cooking liquid pot was a separate charge which I found odd. They should just do an included flat rate and average it out. We'll go again for lunch. And get a bigger table! Great service!

Special Occasion at the Melting Pot
We went to the Melting Pot to celebrate a special occasion with our son and daughter. The food, atmosphere and services were fantastic. I was also very pleased with their kids menu and prices. My 10 year loved it and the price was reasonable.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant! We will be going back. Our server was great and we would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Fun with fondue
My wife and I celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary at the Melting Pot. It was the first time we've been there and we went there because of friends that told us we would enjoy it. They were right! We enjoyed it very much. It's unique in how you dine there using fondue pots for pretty much your whole meal. The food was very good, the service was wonderful and we loved having a private booth, which is hard to come by now-a-days. Thank you, Melting Pot, for a very enjoyable evening.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Table for Two
My wife and I were tucked back in a quaint little brick hidey hole for two on our trip to the Melting pot. The waitress was wonderful. Being that this was our first trip, she did a great job of explaining the menu and making menu suggestions for us. We actually spent almost two hours eating here, which is unheard of for my wife and I. Time flew and we certainly did have fun!
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great first experience
we were seated promptly, even though we arrived about 10 minutes before our reservation. The service was excellent. The restaurant was quiet for the majority of the meal, only getting a little noisier when a large group arrived during our dessert. Definitely a great experience and we will be back!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Took my boyfriend there for our six month anniversary. The whole experience was worth the money. It's one of those places that you always want to try but hear that it's expensive. If your going for the wow factor or if you just like to try new dining experiences, like we do, then the price is definitely worth it.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous night out
This will be our 3rd time at Melting Pot and it was just as great as the first 2 times. Had my step-daughter along and it was her first time since she lives out of town. She really enjoyed herself with a new eating experience. Service was great even though our server told us she had only been waiting tables for 3 months. As an ex-server (15 years) I felt she did a great job. And the food was fabulous! We will be back.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Melting away in good food
It was are first time and not our last. The staff helped understand how the systems worked and helped us pare the dips and meats. It was our daughters birthday and we had a very nice and relaxed time. Servings look small but we all were stuffed at the end. Cooking the food at the table gave us time to talk and enjoy the night. Looking to come back soon.
