    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.)

    Dined on 4/10/2014
    I went to dine here for the national cheese week only to not receive the free cheese I was promised via email. In this email it specified that reservations must be made over the phone. However, when the phone call was made (three phone calls actually hours apart) not only was the phone not answered but the recording directed me to make the reservation online, which i did using my cell phone. Of course this method prevented me from noticing a comment section to notify the restaurant we would be joining them to celebrate cheese week. Therefore, I notified the host upon our arrival who sent the manager over to deny us of our free cheese simply because we did not inform them with a phone call. I left furious.

    Our server Jeff was the worst we have had anywhere. It Appears as their weren't any bus boys on on wednesday night but it was slow so it shouldn't have impacted service as much as it did. My husbands water sat empty for well over two hours mine for well over an hour. Our salads were brought out about 15 minutes after finishing our cheese an then the oil for our entree wasn't brought out until 20 minutes after we had finished our salads. I understand not being rushed but then our entrees weren't brought out until 30 minutes after the oil we waited about another 20 minutes for a box once we finished our entrees (no bag)and then atleast 20 minutes after he Finally cleared the table for Jeff to bring out the wrong chocolate. Won't be going back

    I took my wife for her anniversary and we had a great time. Niether of us had ever been there before and were a little skeptical. Our waiter Vinny did a great job of explaining everything and put us at ease right away. Cheese and chocolate fondue were amazing. Food was very good as well. It was an expensive evening, but I knew that going into it and thought it was worth it. Overall, we had a great time and would not hesitate to go back.

    We were a group of four and seated in the "VIP" private table.For 4 adults it was tight and the table was cluttered The table has only one table top burner so all seated had to share ,the quoted cooking times had to be doubled the cooking oil would cool down so much the batter was unable to stick to the food when removed from the oil. We went on a Sunday evening the place was empty and there were plenty of 2 burner tables open. Great Table for a party of two, For 4 people get a 2 burner table I would probably not dine here again

    I took my 9 and 11 year old step kids here for dinner mid week as a last minute decision. BEST IDEA EVER! Yes, a little expensive but worth it. They really enjoyed it. The restaurant was busy so our server, Hamilton also had help from Max. They were the best. I have been there before but the kids had not. Both guys took time to explain everything to the kids. I have never had such great service, in any restaurant. The kids enjoy the food so much, we ordered extra shrimp and chicken and beef. They barely finished the s'mores dessert! They were in a food coma in the car on the way home. We planned to walk the game piers but they were not open. THANKFULLY!

Wanted to try the the red wine bourginone that you had before. Apart from that everything else was delicious and our server Michael was great!!

    We have been going to the AC Melting Pot for years for my friends birthday. I almost did not go because our last experience was terrible. They said they had valet parking, there was a thunderstorm. Their idea of valet parking was to take my car 2 blocks away and drop it off. So we ran back to the restaurant in the rain. When we were done with our meal I asked the girl at the front to call for my car. After waiting 10 minutes she said that they don't do that and we had to get it from where we dropped it off. It was still raining and we had to wait for it. Had we known that they did not have valet parking we would have been prepared. This most recent visit was wonderful and was the experience that we have come to expect.

    Few ideas we though would help new customers. A clock by each table to know how long food has been cooking for. Also like a chat on the wall with picture and name or the sauces. And cook times of the food would be helpful and last thing maybe put numbers on the back of the stick to keep track of which one you had in the pot and the new one you just add to the pot.

    We had Jillian as our server this evening. She was absolutely the best! My wife and I go out to dinner quite often and we were delightfully surprised with her! She was attentive, informative and very open to do all she could do to meet our needs. After we were done with our dining experience, both my wife and myself commented to each other how fantastic she was and how we felt she was the best server we had in a very long time. Please give her some recognition for a job well done and know that you have a real gem here. You may want to look at a possible management position for this young lady. She really was the absolute best!!! I have worked in Customer Service for 35 years and know when someone has what it takes! Jillian has it!!!
