Great service good food
Service is great. However food is good but not great. Cheese fondue needs more cheese, it felt almost like dipping bread into water. Flavor was good however some more cheese would not have hurt. On the meat/shrimp fondue you are given a pot with some broth to cook your food, which is OK but for me a meat fondue goes with good boiling oil, not broth. Overall with the service the experience is pretty good. Desert was really good (dark chocolate fondue)

Great date nite
My wife and I are semi-frequent diners at the Melting Pot. We go several times a year, on our anniversary or other special occasions. Like always, had a great time on our last visit. We typically do the 'big night out', which it appears they have phased out for 4 course meal. I like the new menu and the Gluten Free bread was tasty!
Great wine list, good beer (I typically get Dogfish 60 Minute IPA), and as always great food. This place is hard to beat for a romatic nite with your better half.

Went here for our anniversary and we enjoyed the experience completely! It took us in all almost 3 hours to finish the 4-course Experience. It was a great dining experience getting to cook your food (which tasted great). My recommendations are the cheddar appetizer, the Caesar salad, the standard entree, and the s'mores desert! Such a filling and wonderful dining experience, would most definitely recommend coming here.

Very pricy for the amount of food. Service was outstanding.

I have always wanted to try this place and I am so glad we did!! I highly recommend this "experience"!! If you haven't tried it you're seriously missing out!!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
just for her...
Great place especially if you want to make the moment all about her. Get a private booth and woo her. She deserves it!

Nice place for a date.
My wife and I have two small children, so we don't get out much for a date night. When we do find time, however, we like to make it count. The Melting Pot is a great place for a nice, intimate dinner in a romantic setting. The restaurant is generally quiet and the interactive nature of fondue is good for fun and communication. They have a number of options available to add to your evening including roses, a commemorative picture, and small/isolated tables for a more intimate setting.

I chose this place to celebrate my anniversary. They have several selections that are pocket friendly. I chose the rose petal candle light dinner which also came with a photograph. When we arrived our table was full of rose petals and was very presentable. The only thing I did not like was that they waited until the end to take our picture. Overall the food was great, service was great.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is top notch, ambiance is very intimate and romantic (especially at a private booth, which we always get), and the drinks are very good. Be prepared to pay for it though! But worth every penny!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dining at the Melting Pot. Our server was extremely helpful, attentive, patient and engaged in making sure we had a great experience. The food was delicious and plenty of wine to choose from. Will definitely be back as well as refer the Melting Pot to family and friends.

Great Date Night
Had a wonderful evening out on a date, the restaurant was very helpful in making it a nice evening for us.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a fun dining experience. Excellent food and ambiance. Always a favorite.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was expecting something different for our anniversary. Different was definitely exceeded. I had a great time with my wife.
What I didn't expect was a total meal prepared in a pot, (guess that's why its called melting pot).
I like steak grilled not "filet tips"stewed, but overall a great time.
ps You offer and we purchased a romantic package for a huge price, yet it did not include the drinks or the "BOILING POT STEW," which was a little cheesy. I guess I thought a package is a package, not just part.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
They really made our night special. The food was great and since I told them it was a special night we had a secluded table.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for a leisurely dinner
Melting Pot is definitely a place to have a leisurely dinner. It does require "cooking" your own entree, so the ability to share is a must. Great appetizer and dessert prepared by waiter. Food quality was very good. All seating is booth style. Service was very good as was the wine list.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
this is definitely the place to go if you are looking for an enjoyable, romantic evening. staff is super friendly. we always consider the melting pot for any special occasion, and usually end up choosing it.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Melting Pot helped me give my fiancé a great night or on her birthday. I booked the reservation online and was even able to call to add a few extras. There was a package to add some roses, chocolate covered strawberries, and a picture. My fiancé loves this stuff so it put a nice touch on the evening and made me look like I planned for weeks. Great service and outstanding ambiance made this a night to remember.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lets be real, you can't really go wrong woth melted cheese and chocolate, the melting pot took this far beyond my expectations. The food was amazing, i want to go back just to try all the dessert variations, the choice was too difficult they all sounded amazing. On the night we were served by Jason, he was very welcoming and helpful and helped make our experience at the melting pot. I will be returning again very soon!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Work for your food, enjoy
For starters, The Melting Pot is pretty fantastic. The food is incredible, the service is top-notch, and the ambience is perfect for a romantic night out or any special occasion. With that said, you are required to "work for your food" in a sense. If you get different oils/broths, you'll be instructed on the various cooking times for each type of food you get for each type of oil/broth. This could be a bit intimidating, but it's all well worth it! If you get discouraged with the entree experience, just hold out until dessert...you won't be disappointed! The Flaming Turtle is simply to die for!

Wonderful for a romantic evening
Wonderful for a romantic evening - however, did not appreciate that management did nothing about the group of 6 very loud people who ruined the ambience of a quiet evening. At times they were so loud we couldn't hear ourselves speaking to one another.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun place with excellent service. Mostly liked the cheese fondue and chocolate dessert. Not real thrilled with the sauces for the meat.

A bit pricey so not a great idea for frequent visits. But the food is excellent.

Melting Pot San Antonio
Great food, great service and just overall a great experience. Would highly recommend. Keep in mind can add up very quickly in price, however we did get the 4 course experience! Reasonable if just getting individual fondue (cheese, chocolate, etc).
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We used a birthday as a reason to dine somewhere new and exciting. We call it "destination dining" and this was a great choice. Now we have to figure out how we can "destination dine" every week we liked it so much!
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food and service!
We were so happy with this dinner came straight home to brag about it!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Me and my boyfriend went there for the first time and it was great! The waiter Chad was very helpful and patient with us and explained everything and answered all of our questions. The food and atmosphere was great and we will definatley be back there soon!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here for our Anniversary. My wife had been once before and wanted me to try it out. I was very impressed. The atmosphere was cozy. The waiter was very professional. The food was fantastic - all 4 courses! The price was reasonable. Great place for a special occasion. We will definitely visit again!

Awesome birthday celebration
The Melting Pot is one of my favorite restaurants. This visit was a special birthday for Mike. I ordered the package of rose petals and picture, everything was perfect. The pedals were on the table that was kind of private, we ordered champagne and dinner. The manager came by several times to see if we needed anything and gave us a card for $10 off on our next visit and took the picture. The service was very good and the food is always very good, I love the fondue thing. Thanks Melting Pot for making our evening soooo very special!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We chose the ultimate romance package and were very pleased with it. The table was semi-private as it was walled off from the other tables but open to the hall, but you still felt secluded. The roses were beautiful. The were actually some of the loveliest roses I have seen in a long time. The lighting was well done, not too dark and not to bright. The cheese sauce of the cheese fondue was excellent, we especially enjoyed the bread with it. The steak entrée was also very good as were the sauces. Neither of us is crazy about curry but we really liked their curry sauce. Their dark chocolate fondue topped off the evening and the picture and picture frame gave us a nice memento. I look forward to dining there again.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the Cheese Fondu!
By far my favorite part of the meal was the cheese fondu, we have the Fiesta Cheese and the Spinach Artichoke. Second favorite part was the chocolate, OMG!

Good food and an intimate
Good food and an intimate atmosphere for celebrations or a quiet dinner with friends. Excellent service. Gluten free options excellent - did not have to sacrifice flavor.

Wonderful, romantic evening!
Staff was outstanding, food was delicious, and atmosphere was perfect. It was my 13th wedding anniversary, and I intend on making it my anniversary spot. My wife and I both enjoyed it. Our waiter, Matthew, was very courteous, professional, and knowledgeable (definitely future management material).
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience
Good was excellent. Swiss fondue was prepared perfectly. Waitress was very good. Chocolate and peanut butter dessert fondue was amazing!! Great for a romantic dinner or special occasion. Would recommend to friends.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restaurant to take that special someone. Especially if they have never tried fondue. Great experience overall

Great Food & Great Service
We love coming to the Melting Pot for girls nights and we just keep coming back for more. The service at this location is significantly better than the service at other locations we have been to. We have had a lot of different servers, but Zach is our favorite so far. I don't have a lot to review on the food quality...it is always awesome. Looking forward to our next visit already!
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the price
I reserved a table for my wife's birthday( it was a Tuesday night) the whole process was easy- no problems from beginning to end. It was a great experience. Very private, romantic, and the desserts put it over the top.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was wonderful! It was fun the food was great and the chocolate fondue was amazing. It was a wonderful experience!! Look forward to going back again!! :)

Great way to celebrate
Went to MP to celebrate a family birthday. Great way to make an evening of the event and celebrate over an extended period. Food and drinks (martinis) were excellent and server was charming and entertaining, as well as very efficient. We enjoyed ourselves immensely.

A very unique experience. Not a place I will eat often, but highly anticipated going...and it didnt disappoint. Food portions were great. Food was fresh and delicious.
Was not too impressed with our Server. very unatttentive and unorganized. I was disappointed with the seating, as we were seated next to a very young child (too much noise.)
Over all, a very fun experience.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
fun, fun, fun
My family had a great time, esp. my 11 y.o. son. The ambiance is perfect for both families and romantic dates. Our waiter, Dominic, was exceptional. Every dish of the 4 course meal was delicious. A variety of flavors of cheese, chocolates, and meats.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service is excellent. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Delicious food.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
My kids love coming here. They are 11 and 12 and also budding foodies. They love the different flavors and textures and mixing it up. It is always a good time.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been begging my hubby to take me for years and I finally got him to go last night. I was worried that a "steak and potatoes" man would not be satisfied with this type of dining and meal, but he loved it. The wait staff was extremely helpful and we had a great time! Te meal was amazing! Thank you!!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most fun with food!
The experience at The Melting Pot was so much fun. We had the 4 course meal and each course was fresh, tasty and plentiful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Love Love LOVE The Melting Pot!
Before moving to Germany, I'd been to The Melting Pot a few times. I've been wanting to take my husband there since we met and never had the chance (as we love in Germany). This year, my Dad & Stepmom celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary and my husband and I celebrated our 3rd and my only request was that Dad & Sherrie join us for dinner at The Melting Pot. They felt like a fish out of water at first and were a little intimidated by the 'confusion' of the menu but once we got everything lined out, my husband, dad and stepmom were beyond impressed. We had a wonderful time and our server, Nikki was absolutely fantastic. The Melting Pot is definitely not an everyday kind of place but for it is sure to make a special occasion even MORE so.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
great place for second a date
In lovers lane you have the best seats there best privacy for you and your partner room and reason to get close...
Beware tho there will not be enough food to take home with you tho...
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great date night spot
This is a great place for a quiet and romantic date night. The service was fabulous and the food is always great.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
With a large group, our experience was a lot of fun. Because of party size we had a room to ourselves that allowed our children to move around and try various items. The fun in cooking your own food and trying multiple items through four courses was great. The dinner is entertainment as well.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
We go every year for my birthday and have enjoyed it every time
