The Melting Pot is a great
The Melting Pot is a great place for celebrating a special event, or just enjoying a fun evening with friends. You can relax (once you make your menu choice) and enjoy the food and time together. Be sure you allow a couple of hours for a full 4-course meal. Don't rush it. TASTE the food, especially the dessert course. The chocolate is fantastic. If you only go for dessert, you won't be sorry. Have fun!

The servers were very good at answering questions and explaining the dining experience. It was my first time dining at the Melting Pot and our server was very helpful and gave wonderful suggestions.

We went for our 5th anniversary. Our server was excellent. We chose cheddar fondue for appetizer. It came with different breads, apples & veggies. We didn't much care for the tiny veggie selection most of which was cauliflower, but breads and apples were perfect. Main course: my favorite by far was the filet mignon. My husband couldn't quite get on board with the idea of the raw meats coming to the table that he had to dip in his cooking style sauce. That was a *little* weird but it made for very fresh, tender and moist meat, so worth it to me! Dessert was great, of course. We reserved a table with 2 burners so we could get different desserts. I had flaming turtle and he had plain chocolate. Divine. Although, we ran out of stuff to dip. Ha.

Kyle made the whole experience
We have dined at the MP many times in different cities. Our favorite is Grand Rapids, and we had the most wonderful server in Kyle! The MP concept requires much interaction between waiter and patron and Kyle is a perfect fit. He was present when needed and when he could not personally attend to our table, had his assistant handle the duties. The food is predictable here, so service is what this restaurant is all about. We will be back and ask for Kyle again (we have never asked for a particular server at the MP, even though we've had many fine ones in the past, so asking for him specifically is a very unusual for us!).

Great but not for the $$$
It was a great experience, but I don't think it was worth $125. Could of received more food for entree's, like veggies & potatoes(we had 3 tiny potatoes & 2 pc broccoli.). Great service, liked the atmosphere, just not worth more than $100.

I had been to several Melting Pot restaurants in various cities prior to our visit to this one (Grand Rapids). I took a friend out for her birthday and it was the perfect location to have some great food and drink and the ambiance was conducive for talking and catching up. The three courses were paced well, our server was excellent, and the value for the meal was surprising (we did the deal of three courses and two movie tickets). We left the restaurant quite satisfied - both with the food and the entire experience. I will continue to dine at Melting Pot restaurants as the experience was memorable (in a very positive way).

This was a birthday celebration for my mother. According to her...she felt like a queen. Thank you

Nice romantic spot
I surprised my wife with a visit to thr Melting Pot for our 9 year anniversary and she, or should I say we loved it. The food was great and everything about the restaurant was great. Special evening for a special woman.

The food was amazing, as always.
Our waitress was very sweet and talkative but the service was a bit slower than normal.
There was an extemely cold draft right above our table, which is understandably impossible to fix, but it was much too chilly for us to be completely comfortable.

wonderful dining experience
This was the end of our vacation dining experience and it was a deliciously decadent way to end our vacation. They were very busy but we had reservations and were seated quickly and our server never made us feel hurried and was very attentive, helpful, and friendly.

Fabulous dining experience!
This was our first dining experience at the Melting Pot in GR. We were celebrating a milestone anniversary and this was a wonderful way to do so. It was delightful sampling a wide variety of items in each course of the meal, and the dipping sauces were amazing! The spinach artichoke cheese fondue was fabulous! One of us is gluten free and the accommodations and knowledge of our waiter was simply perfect. We highly recommend any entrée level, from the cheese fondue or dessert fondue as a solo experience or the 4 course fondue experience....be hungry when you come!

Great night out
There was only one thing I would have changed. .. there was a bit of cold air blowing on us sometimes.
Other than that the food was great and so was the service.

Love this place. It was expensive
Love this place. It was expensive but they do have deals which is nice. Not a place you go to every weekend but I loves every minuet of it.

It was my 1st time at the melting pot and it was amazing! I was very impressed with the food, presentation, and overall service. I will definitely go back. It is my new favorite restaurant. Love love love!

We came as a special treat for our 10th anniversary, and treated ourselves to the 4 courses. (This was an unusual treat for us - for financial reasons, we almost never eat out, and this meal was very expensive.) Making reservations on-line so easily was awesome. The duck was my favorite meat (I got the Pacific Rim); it was fabulous. The dessert was definitely the BEST part. If it were not so expensive per person, we would come back just for the dessert!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing Every Time
I always enjoy the chance to go to the Melting Pot. We don't go often, only because it can be expensive, but I always enjoy it. The food is always high quality and very fresh. Each fondue pot is delicious, we especially love the cheese fondues. No complaints here! Highly recommend The Melting Pot for a nice evening out, either with friends or a significant other.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
From the moment we walked in, we were treated wonderfully. Our server was very attentive and well-spoken, the food utterly delicious (especially the duck with teriyaki sauce), and the drinks flavorful and refreshing. We always enjoy our visits, but this topped the evening of our 10th anniversary splendidly. Nice work, everyone!
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was an overall good expierence, food is kind of expensive but the dessert is worth it!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Once again this was a great place for a special occasion. We usually come for our anniversary and valentine's day. Also come for any other very "special" event. I love the menu that is now for individuals instead of for 2 people. You new plates are a lot better than the pewter ones.

Great time--table server was awesom
Brought our daughters here to celebrate their birthdays after a fun filled afternoon in Grand Rapids. We arrived earlier than our reservation, but were greeted with a smile and seated immediately! Once seated a very knowledgeable table server was there to answer all of our questions (and concerns as my daughter was not thrilled with a fondue restaurant!). We had an awesome, interactive dinner and will make the Melting Pot our birthday dinner tradition!

Chocolate and Cheese
This was our second time to the Melting Pot and we had a good experience each visit. While all of the food is good, it is expensive. In the future I would likely just get a cheese appetizer and a chocolate dessert, as they are the best parts.

Wedding night bliss.
My husband and I chose The Melting Pot for our first meal out the night of our wedding. The atmosphere was lovely, quiet and dim. Very romantic. Our server was great. He explained everything in detail, but he wasn't a stuffy waiter like you can find at some nice restaurants. My favorite part, of course, was the food! It was delicious! This is definitely my all time favorite restaurant!

Melting Pot G.R
My husband and I went there on Sunday night for my husband's birthday the food was no joke the best we have ever had in our lives and the service was excellent it was the best dining experience we've ever had

Not a meal - an experience!
Went for my wife's birthday. First visit. Server was very helpful. Food was very good. Cooking at the table was fun. It was a relaxing 2 hour experience that we would gladly do again.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for special occasions
We took our daughter there for her birthday on Saturday night. It was perfect for a great night of conversation and connection. The Fillet was awesome as was the shrimp and chocolate. I would recommend it to anyone not in a hurry.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was gifted with a gift certificate, never heard of it before ~ about 45 minutes from a where we live. Not too pricey if you consider all you get, just take care to not overrun your bill with drinks (although the wine was well worth it!). We had a fabulous waiter named Charlie who really took great care of us, took time with us and even took pics for us with our camera. Overall an incredible meal and an incredible ~ memorable experience that we plan to repeat at least once or twice a year! Love, love, loved it!! Already have recommended it to others and will continue to do so!

Celebrating being married to wify
We came in to celebrate our one year of marriage. Very special night. Very good food. You pay a lot to eat there but I do think I got my money's worth. Really when you go out to eat you want an experience. We got it at the Melting Pot. Thank you so much.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the perfect place for some quiet time with my husband. The food was good and we had good service. The lighting could be a little brighter to ascertain whether or not we cooked our meat enough and my water was not refilled. The dessert is sublime and the cheese course was delicious.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for a special
Great place for a special night out. It is where we go every year for our anniversary. Love the food and the time together cooking it.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was great except for the fact we came on homecoming night and the wait was a little long for our food.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely wonderful fondue!
Perfect for fondue lovers!! No complaints. We had a fabulous night! Great wine list too!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cheese and dessert fondue are awesome! Entrees are just okay.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
very impressed and would go again
We had 6 o'clock reservations. We got there. Was seated and was never acknowledged for 45 mins. My boyfriend went to front counter and asked how long it took to get service. He was ready to go across the street to a different place. The managedr came out and was very sorry and we got the royal treatment after that. Not a break in the bill but was compensated in other ways. We will go back again
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We celebrated my daughter's 13th birthday at your establishment. The girls had a blast! The spot they put the girls was perfect. They felt like they were still in the restaurant, but I felt like we weren't disturbing the rest of the people dining. There were servers that pulled together to make our experience nicer. You could see the team work. Our drinks were always a concern and continuously refilled. My only concern was when I was making the appointment. Not having done this for a large group before I had a few questions. Having some assistance in the beginning would have been nice. Otherwise, a great overall experience.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My first time going and really didn't think you could get full off just fonduing but we were well satisfied with the food, atmosphere and drinks. Will definitely come again!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a fabulous find! My friend and I wanted a lovely evening out to celebration recent life changes and were searching for something a little fancy, special, something we hadn't tried before, and not overly priced. We could not have been more delighted with the Melting Pot of Grand Rapids, MI. It was everything for which we had hoped and more. The food was so tasty. The atmosphere was perfect. AND the service was top notch. A great experience all the way around. We would could not have been more delighted and plan to return.

The Melting Pot in review
I would highly recommend the melting pot to anyone looking for a new and exciting dinning experience. The facilities are very clean and neat. The staff very friendly and helpful for menu choices. The food is amazing, and the experience is phenomenal.

Awesome experience! Great
Awesome experience! Great food, spectacular ambiance, wonderful service!! A must do for everyone's bucket list!!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our daughter picked the Melting Pot for a birthday dinner - fun place to celebrate a special event. Food was good and our pleasant server kindly accommodated special requests (substitute for shrimp, more fruit less cake, etc). I was pleased that the vegetables have been upgraded over the years (used to be just carrots and celery) though I believe there's still room for improvement(green beans? peppers? asparagus?). This place is really not for vegetarians, tho they do offer a vegetarian plate now. Nice but most vegetarians still wouldn't like it unless everyone at the table using the same cooking pot was also ordering just veggies.
Make reservations! we were glad we had because on a Saturday even as early as 5 pm they were full up.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first visit...celebrating my wife's 50th birthday. Excellent food and atmosphere (although the table was a little small). I would highly recommend to anyone wanting an intimate night out.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my parents to Melting Pot for their 65th Anniversary. They had never been to Melting Pot before ane really enjoyed the experience. Our server really made the evening fun! Highly recommend for any special occasion and the chocolate covered strawberries were wonderful. The peanut butter chocolate fondue is a must have!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding Staff and Food
It has been quite a while since I was this impressed with the service at a restaurant. Our waiter was phenomenal! He made several excellent recommendations and kept an upbeat energy with a splash of humor that kept the night going. Plus the food was outstanding! Our waiter recommended the snicker doodle fondue for dessert and it was to die for!!!!
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
You have to try this!
We had a group of 6 and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Since none of us had ever been to The Melting Pot, it was a very unique and fun experience. Our waiteress was amazing. She explained the whole process (more than once) and our choices were wonderful.
This is definately a place to go for a special occasion. Our group confirmed that the cheese and the chocolate fondues were our favorite.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
quiet get away
I enjoy coming here to meet another couple for a time away from children and to enjoy the whole experience that you provide.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
One time experience
It was an interesting experience, and I'm glad we tried it once just to check it off our list. It took about 3.5 hours for our party of four to complete our four courses. The best courses were appetizer and dessert, with the entree being a disappointment. The compilation of the fondue at the table was a fun touch, although our poor waiter seemed very new and kept dropping ingredients on us, but we probably will not return there, simply because we can find much more entertainment for the $302 it cost us for dinner.

First time for Fondue
My wife and enjoyed our visit to the Melting Pot. It was a fun way to experience food. Our total bill without alcohol was $95 and did not include tip. This put this resaurant to " special occassion" only. We were there almost two hours which In my opinion could have been cut by at least half an hour if we didn't have to wait so long between courses. Overall, worth the trip,but it better be important.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect Fifth Date location
The melting Pot is great experience and excellent service. However the main course wasn't near to our satisfaction and I wound warn anyone eating here to avoid your filet mignon, a few piece were fatty with gristle . We are counorsors with filet. I won't expect your filet to be like The Chop House, however I do have to say that yours rated the worse so far.
Outstanding spinach and artichoke dip, drinks and desert. Your setting was very romantic and the time that we were there went by very quickly and so relaxing.
I just wish your food was better!
Sorry I don't see us going back for a few years if ever. Your prices are good yet I like filet mignon and would rather go somewhere I know is great.
Thank you for for this emai opportunity.

i took my boyfriend for dinner for his birthday. when I mentioned it to the hostess, she must have told our waitress and the manager. Both of them came over to say happy birthday. I loved the fact that our waitress had been there 8 years and could offer great advice on the menu. we weren't rushed through our meal and got to spend time just enjoying everything. We had the 4 course dinner which gives a wonderful assortment of things on the menu. Our waitress even put a candle on the dessert plate. Awesome place. Great experience. Can't wait to go back.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is not a quick bite kind of place. Because of the hot oil it is not kid friendly. This is where you go to sit relax talk and enjoy something a little different but amazingly delicious.
