My girlfriend and I went for dessert after dinner at another restaurant. We had eaten dinner at The Melting Pot previously and it was delicious. The dessert was decadent and offers many choices of chocolate fondues. We had the milk chocolate and the array of dippers is great. The rick krispies and marshmallows were light and delicious. The fruit was juicy and sweet. The waitress was very courteous and gave great directions for the dippers. Wonderful end to our dinner.

Love the cheese and chocolate
Love the cheese and chocolate fondue. Not crazy about the entree fondue though. Salad is also tasty.

Everything was superb and I always knows that even with my deadly mushroom allergy, I never have to worry about eating here. The waitstaff is extremely attentive and they don't kill the romantic mood. Instead they compliment it with suggestions and service.

Brought out a friend of mine to show her a good time and this place was perfect. Food is great. Great place to pace yourself and have a full meal. Didn't do the 4 course but did 3. Entree is good but $pricey$. I would say its worth it. But honestly my favorite part (im a guy) and her favorite part was the cheese dips and desert. Everything was presented great and tasted even better. For the 3 courses I left full and so did she. Only had a couples beers but the drink menu did look real good but also average is $9-13 for spirit cocktails. Overall great place to eat and stay. Waiter was really nice but kinda awkward. Didn't have an effect on the great meal just something we left talking about.

What can't I say about this resturant. The food was delicious, the noise level quiet and comfortable wth a little Sinatra in the backround, the service friendly and very helpful. The resturant was clean with an excellent bar menu and a long wine list. A very peaceful and romantic setting where the tables are spread out and private. It is however expensive but with the experience I had, worth every penny. I would recommend the resturant to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic, delicious, and overall amazing restaurant.

Staff and Food Quality
This was an amazing experience. My first Fondue experience and the staff was extremely competent and helpful. Every detail was explained and we had a blast.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious cheese fondue! I recommend the 4 course meal: it's a menu where you can choose one sort of cheese fondue, a salad, one sort of meat fondue(take the classic!) and chocolate fondue!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my 17 yo daughter for her birthday with a friend. She loved the experience, food, and the servers heard us wish her a happy birthday, put a candle in her dessert, gave her award, and a further coupon as we left. Choices are amazing and varied. Will go again!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun place for a date
We loved the intimate atmosphere of the place. The food was fresh and fantastic. Our server was amazing, too. She was very friendly, upbeat and made excellent recommendations. Strongly recommend!

Restaurant for an experience
My first time dining at The Melting Pot was a great experience. It was defintiely something I would consider a "must do" for restaurant lovers such as myself. I enjoyed the ambience and delighted in the process of how our food was prepared and cooked. The waitress explained the menu and asked for our food order in the same way the menu is laid out. The cheese is mixed in front of you; each table has a burner and a "pot". She explained the appropriate cooking times for the meats. We did find the duck needed more cooking than the alloted time recommended but everything else came out well. The dining experience is at least 2hrs. We didn't try the chocolate Fondue but will definitely return to try it and indulge in a delicious night cap!

Vacation Special Dinner
The waitress was very good with our 10 and 12 year old daughters, making them comfortable with their first experience at a Melting Pot. The food and experience was very good.

Efficient service, friendly...
Efficient service, friendly... food significantly varied to keep all diners happy. Silverware could have been cleaner!! Fork looked like it had not been washed and I am not particularly fussy. That was the only downside. My 13 yr old daughter loved it... was her birthday and wants to return with her friends. Recommend the 4 course menu, was great value for money and the duck cooked that way was to die for.

Perfect for Girl Time!
The restaurant was perfect for catching up time and not rushing to eat our food. It made us slow down and eat whether we wanted to or not. Nice to actually sit down for a meal and enjoy it over a 1.5-2.0 hour period. Our waiter was sweet and it was nice how the whole staff helped keep each other on top of bussing tables and refilling glasses. Definitely worth the experience!!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for special occasions when you want to have good family or friendly chat
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my fiancée for her birthday. Had a great time!! Food and service were excellent. Expensive, but well worth it!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a great experience.
It was a great experience. It was our anniversary and they made it special by bringing over our dessert with a candle. A nice little touch. I would recommend this restaurant and would definitely go back.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellence all around
My fiance and I had a wonderful evening. The staff was untouchable and food to die for. Loved it.

The wine was the perfect temperature, the salads were delicious and the fondues were exceptional and fun to do.

1st anniversary Romance Package
I booked a table for our first anniversary and as a bonus I wanted to surprise my husband with the "romance package".
When we arrived in the restaurant, the staff wished us a happy anniversary and we got a nice, quiet table. The romance package included a metal picture frame (they took a picture when we had our chocolate fondue), three strawberries dipped in chocolate and a red rose. I liked the idea but they just put everything in one line on the table. Here I would have wished for a nicer arrangement.
The food was as excellent as it always is. Swapping things (if you don't like something e.g.) is never a big deal. We got really pampered. Our cheesecake (for the chocolate fondue) even had a candle on it. We just love it there!

Great food w ok service
We went out for a special treat to the melting pot. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was fabulous but the service left something to be desired. It took quite a while to even get drinks and we had to ask for everything extra we needed including napkins and the check at the end of our meal. For a relatively slow night it surprised us that this was the case. We were seated in the lounge near the bar which was not ideal but worked out ok.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've never tried Fondu before, but it was so much fun! So many options, not just the cheese (which I was nervous about because I can be a picky eater).
I went with my grandparents and it was perfect because they can't hear very well and it wasn't very noisy and the booth setup made all the tables pretty private.
Service is a little slow, but I think they were just busy. Plus, the waiters are great and they mix all the fondu things right at your table.
DEFINITELY try the chocolate fondu, but all the courses were great.
Overall, loved this place, would definitely go back.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love This Place
This was our first time at this location, but it did not disappoint. The service was great and we especially like how each booth is very private so you feel as if you are the only ones in the whole restaurant. Our only issue was that one staff member kept vacuuming near our table which was really distracting and annoying. Otherwise, it the meal was great!

Dining with Daughters
I recently visited the Melting Pot for the first time with my two daughters prior to going to the Opera House to see Wicked. We had a lovely time sampling the interesting food, and eating at a very relaxing pace. The service was great and the atmoshere allowed for a lovely expereince with great conversation. This place is a winner :)
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gluten Free Goodness!
Melting Pot pulls out all the stops for their gluten free guests. I ate there with two friends who are not gluten free, and I never once felt like I was missing out, not even during the dessert course! Thanks, Melting Pot, for being AWESOME :)
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite place
My boyfriend and I came here for out anniversary and loved it! The food is amazing and the experience is so fun yet so romantic!!!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most amazing waiter!
I brought my 4 children here for my oldest child's 10th birthday dinner. Our waiter was so amazing, managing a table of 4 small children for a 2 hour dinner experience. He even delivered and explained the dessert course to the tune of Willy Wonka's Oompa Loompa song!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
We celebrated my son's 13th birthday here and it was perfect! My kids 13 and 10 had never done fondue before so i wasn't sure what to expect! They absolutely loved cooking their own food and dipping in the delicious sauces. Of course, the chocolate was the best part! My son thought we should come every year on his birthday! I would not recommend for children under 10.... It's a long dining experience not good for young or picky eaters. Our waiter was attentive and entertaining.... A terrific experience.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and tasty
This was our first time in a Melting Pot and the service was really great, our waitress Shelly was really nice (and a Bruin's fan). We did the four course experience to really get the full fondue tasting. The cheese fondue was tasty (we did spinach and artichoke option), salads were small but tasty and the lobster tail mix with the tropical blend fondue was nice, the highlight was the chocolate fondue dessert which was just the right balance of chocolate and peanut butter and the right amount to leave us full but not stuffed.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
I couldn't have asked for a better place to have a romantic evening. The server was funny, but professional. Made us feel right at home. I'd recommend this place to anybody for a special occasion.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great fondue experience
Really enjoyed our fondue meal! I loved the 4 course dining experience. Took about 3 hours to eat, but it was nice to take our time cooking the meal and enjoying each course.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great night out
Really fun time out. Great atmosphere in the restaurant. Service was excellent. A little pricey but you certainly get what you pay for

Melting Pot - Boston
Everything about this restaurant was fantastic - the service was stellar and the food was amazing. I highly recommend the Spinach and Artichoke cheese fondue and the S'Mores fondue was to die for!! I will definitely go back.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Lot of Food
We did the 4 course meal which is definitely cost effective but it was just way too much to eat. I would go back again but just have the cheese fondue and the dessert fondue. Service was excellent. The environment okay, not great in the interior design department. All the rest was average. Priced on the high side for what it is.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Total Dining Experience
The Melting Pot isn't just a restaurant, it is a total dining experience. Some of the menu items are prepared for you, in front of you while others you cook yourself. The atmosphere is so relaxing yet exciting. The food is always top quality. One of my favorite restaurants and always the restaurant my 17 year-old asks to go to when we are in Boston.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good dining "experience"
You don't pay for the food. You pay for the dining experience. We went for our first anniversary here. I called ahead and had flowers and chocolates arranged on the table which was nice. The food was pretty good. I did think it was overpriced obviously. So I would call this a good place to go perhaps once a year at the most.
At the table we sat at, it was really hard to fish food out of the cooking bowl. The bowl was placed on the corner of the table. I would have preferred for the food to be on the center of the table. It was not very accessible.
11/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
From the reservation call to getting the check the service was exceptional. It was our first time at the melting pot, the waiter was nice, explained how ordering worked. I loved everything about our experience there. Can't wait to come back
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun and yummy!
We went to The Melting Pot for a group birthday celebration. Our waiter, Jo-an, was absolutely fantastic. Professional yet fun. The food was wonderful. Our only complaint was it got quite hot with the steam from the fondue pot. I would absolutely go there again.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A quiet romantic ambience
A quiet romantic ambience was created by. Thre location of ours seating: a corn fear booth in an area of similar seating..no larger groups..excellent recommendations and service by Tom
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
$$, but worth the experience
The Melting Pot was a great experience. As college students on a budget, we were a little intimidated by the price of the entrees. A group of 4, we were able to split 2 cheese fondues and 2 dessert fondues and be completely satisfied for a late lunch/early dinner. Our server was fantastic with recommendations and impressive with making our fondues right at the table. Also noticed on the way out that they have some wonderfully romantic looking date corners for 2. I would definitely recommend this for birthdays or getting together to catch up with good friends.

Amazing spot. 4-course meal
Amazing spot. 4-course meal was the most food I think I've ever eaten in one sitting. Service was great - let us go early to catch a movie and allowed us to come back for dessert at another time since we were running late.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great fun eating
This was the first time my wife and I went to the Melting Pot. The service was great as the wait staff walked us thru how to fondue
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have read complaints about the food being pricey; I have eaten at several Melting Pots, and the price was comparable. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. It was a bitter cold night, but the restaurant was perfectly heated.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice but pricy restaurant with great preparation. Food, wine and service all were outstanding.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went to this back bay location the other night with my husband and parents and we had an excellent time. Our server was DJ am he was on point with everything. DJ was one of the only servers who I actually would go back to the restaurant for. I have been to many different melting pots and this one stood out. THANK YOU DJ ! Keep up the phenomenal service!
