    This was my first visit to The Melting Pot and it did not disappoint! Our waitress was fun and knowledgable too. We had the 4 Cheese (Quatre Fromage) as our main course. The dippers were a variety of raw veggies, apples and white & wheat breads were plentiful, though Danielle offered more. It was Delicious!!! We had such a good and relaxing time. No rush here...they want you to fully enjoy each course. We moved on to dessert from here...The Chocolate Turtle. All fondues are mixed table side by your server. Chocolate, caramel and pecans in our case.Yumm! Dippers ranged from fresh fruits to brownie and blondie bites and marshmallows. Sooooo good!! We highly recommend a visit. Will try the entrees next time!

    Went to The Melting Pot on the recommendation of a family friend. Made reservations through Open Table for dinner for 4 to celebrate a birthday. Ordering was a a little confusing yet simple if that makes sense. When the food came out we were a little surprised it was raw, but the whole cooking yourself was an awesome experience. We were fortunate to have a table with 2 burners so we had 2 different cocking styles. The food was EXCELLENT!! The sirloin was tender the tuna was delicious and sauces were a perfect touch. Customer service beyond expectations. A manager overheard we were military and thanked us and also added a military discount on the already greatly priced meal. Definitely will recommend and revisit soon!!

    The food was good, not great. Even with a groupon discount I still spent over $90 for dinner for two... Would have been $120 without the groupon discount. The experience was not worth $120

    Dinner was great as usual. I had my 11year old step daughter to be with me for some shopping at the Atlantic City outlets and we decided on dinner here. They took us almost 20 minutes earlier than our reservation and service was great. Jeff was very knowledgeable and knew we were hungry do he was fast with our order. He was very personable and funny. The manager, Joe, came over as their managers normally do which is always a nice touch. I LOVE THIS PLACE!

  • Awkward Dining and Management Fails
    WednesdayAddams
    Dined on 5/13/2014
    I had a living social & it caused much confusion which made me feel awkward. We inquired the hostess about the LS when we first came in, she got all confused. Then we asked our server who also didnt know & later tried to tell us we couldnt use it bc she confused the stipulations. It was annoying that I had to correct her. Let me just say, our server was very sweet and on point w everything else. But why issue a coupon & not explain to your staff how it works? Clearly a management failure. Our reservation was early so we were the first & only ones in the restaurant. The music wasnt EVEN turned on until half way through our meal. We could hear a manager giving lessons loudly to a server. It all made us feel extremely awkward & uncomfortable.

    We like fish, and this place was great. It was a special occasion. Although we didn't request it, there are small private tables (for seating up to 4), and this was perfect for us. You do cook your own food in a broth containing fondue pot in the center of the table. (All the broths are vegan friendly and gluten free.) Our raw pieces of fish were obvious high quality, and were delicious after sitting on a skewer in the broth for about 2 minutes each. Only complaint: If ordering a glass of wine, specify which size your want (5 oz or 8 oz). Our waiter brought us the 8 oz, perhaps as the default when not otherwise specified; only slightly more expensive, but more than we needed. Definitely returning to this place.

    Dined on 5/3/2014
    Since you're basically making all the food yourself, you're reliant on the quality of the selection which is fantastic. Be prepared this will not be a quick 4 course evening, the food takes time to make, the server will explain all the menu options and in our case, typically forgot about our existence for over an hour at one point. I think our server was slightly overwhelmed because at the end our credit was swiped for the wrong check.

    Considering it was my finacee and I first time at the Melting Pot, we had a blast! We really had a great time with our meals. We had the four course meal starting with the cheese fondue, salad, seafood entree and then the dessert. What a great way to spend my birthday dinner. Hamilton was our server and he was funny and extremely informative. He took his time to explain to us how to cook our meal, he was extremely patient with us. Thank you for making my birthday dinner a very special occasion.

    Arrived at around 10PM to the restaurant. The food was very excellent and the fondue experience itself set a great ambiance for our date between my girlfriend and I. Our food was very good and it must be stated that the service really was top notch. I left Melting Pot completely full and satisfied. The experience is not one to be done frequently in my opinion, but we will definitely be coming back to the Melting Pot for special occasions in the future.

    If you've been to the Melting Pot before, you know the food is good, but it just takes a super long time. If you are going on a date, come with a lot to talk about because both times I have been there it has taken 2 hours for 2 people. I'm not a huge fan of cooking my own food, so I marked the food at 4 stars and it's really really slow, so I marked service 4 stars.

    My husband and I are able to get away from our son only once a year. This is the second year in a row that we visited the Melting Pot for our "one night a year." We enjoy the feeling of being secluded in our own private space. It's romantic and we get share food and have a great, quiet, relaxed time. The only reason that I'm not giving five stars is that my food was WAY too spicy. I got the French Quarter plate and the chicken AND shrimp were covered in a Cajun spice. It was too much and overwhelmed my palate. Everything I ate had the flavor after that. I couldn't finish it. If we come here again next year, I will choose something else.

    This is my 2nd time to the Melting Pot Atlantic City location. My sister and I had a great time. Our waitress, Alex, was excellent. She went above and beyond with a birthday message plate for my sister since we were celebrating her birthday. Our four course ladies night menu was superior. This restaurant is our staple restaurant every time we go to AC for now on! Thanks again for a great night!

    The usual from the Melting Pot. Fun, albeit expensive. Fun for kids - they actually have a kids menu but you have to ask. Super romantic if you ask for a secluded booth off to the side. It's an experience that's worth doing if you can afford it, but what they actually sell is that, the experience, not the food. Perhaps a good parallel is a rooftop restaurant. They sell the view, not the gourmet part of their menu. Fun to do but don't expect to come away with a feeling that you've had a gastronomic triumph. Dinner for two with 2 cocktails each was $130. (For the record, the only rooftop place I've eaten - and my GF loves them so I've eaten at many - with truly GREAT food is Top of the World at the Statosphere in Las Vegas. Try it.)
