good but slightly over priced.
Portions are reasonable and quite filling, although overall it's a little overpriced. ~$50 per head.

Had a great time
We enjoyed the experience, the flexibility we were offered with different diners needing options, and our server was a patient, friendly and very helpful young man!! Very nice wine choices. The only down was the items they give for dessert fondue. The consensus was that the cheesecake, strawberries, pound cake are great, the rest they can keep.

Good food service is ok
We went here to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious, however, our server lacked service. We asked for water, we got our cheese fondue and our salad before we got water. We had to flag down a manager to bring us water. From that point on the manager kept checking on our table. We really enjoyed our meal but the service definitely took away from it.

Great local chain
This is the third Melting Pot I've visited, and it was exactly what I expected. Great fondue, friendly staff, quality breads/meats/desserts. Brownie bites covered in dark chocolate are how I wish I could end every meal.

Went to the Melting Pot for a birthday dinner and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was helpful with their menus and pricing and the overall experience was great.

A great spot for couples and groups
This was the first time my wife and I dined at The Melting Pot. Among all of the restaurants in Somerville, this one truly stands out with its concept. Our waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and guided us through the process of how to cook our food in the fondue pots. I would recommend choosing the 4 course specials, which save you a couple of dollars compared to ordering a-la-carte. The ambiance is perfect for fondue-style dining.
My only criticism is directed toward the diners that were there Saturday night: DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN. We are all paying a premium for a unique dining experience, and it is incredibly rude toward the other customers and the restaurant staff to deal with their yelling and running around.

Our waiter was AWFUL. She completely forgot us on several occasions left all used plates at the table and never asked if we would like refills on our drinks we had to ask a floater who was helping her with our table for refills. We were there for our anniversary and she told us there was no more champagne when the couple next to us received two rounds of bubbly. She also had no knowledge on making the fondue and left the pot scorching hot which we also had to turn down ourselves because she never came back. When we asked for our check she set it down and as she was WALKING away she said have a good night. The food quality is always great and the quiet tables provide privacy and add romance, this is one of our favorite places.

Not for kids but great for a couple
I love the dim lights and romantic ambience. I wouldn't recommend it for groups unless your group is good about splitting the food otherwise you'll leave hungry. The best experiences I've had here is when it's just me and my husband. We leave so full and happy

We had a birthday dinner there for my mothers 84th. She loved it and so did my teenagers. We loved the beer and cheese fondue and especially the chocolate turtle fondue for dessert. Will go back again. It's a bit pricey, so I will reserve for special occasions! Yum!

Back to School Fondue
What could be more fun than cooking your own dinner? Interactive fun and tasty treats with always wonderful service. The Melting Pot aims to please --- the food is good but it pays to go just for the cheese and chocolate!!

I love this place
Came here with my ex girlfriend, and it completely broke the ice with awkwardness. This was fun, gave us something hands on to do, and now we are working on repairing our relationship.

Great night out!
I recently dined at the Melting Pot with my boyfriend. It was a great night. I am always surprised at the level of knowledge that the service staff is prepared with. Though service was a little slow at times (our waiter informed us they were severely understaffed for the evening) it was a nice night.

Good Birthday Bash
My daughter and her 5 friends went to Melting Pot to celebrate her 16th Birthday. They had a great time. Waiter was very helpful
(first time at the resteraunt for the girls). They had vegetarian options. Girls said the best part is the app and the dessert. Bit pricy so a special occasion place.
