    My wife and I celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary on June 10, 2014 and came to the Melting Pot-Kennesaw for the first time. The server was excellent, she explained everything to us and how to cook the food, you name it. She was a big help for people who did not have a clue what to do. Great food, all around wonderful eventing.

    The food was very good, although we only opted for the cheese and desert fondues. Service was excellent. A good wine menu but not for wine junkies. If you are planning on dinner, make sure you allocate 2 hours plus since the dinner fondues take longer.

    This is without a doubt, my whole families favorite place. This is always our "have to go" place for any special occasion. All the servers are great, but Sade is our absolute favorite. She always adds that special touch to everything. My granddaughters (ages 12 & 13) really love how she makes them feel so special. Great place to relax. Such a pleasant change from the loud, noisy and rushed dining experiences we usually have in other places. Super place for romantic dinners too, but it is also very kid friendly.

    Two long time friends to try to schedule a dinner out at least twice a year. We leave in opposite parts of town but always have these dinners at the Melting Pot. If we were closer & our schedules & finances allowed we would do this more often. We have been doing this over 5+ years & aways choose the Melting Pot because we know it will be a great evening.

    When my girlfriend and I arrived at the melting pot, I was hoping for a pleasant and fun experience. Unfortunately, the service was terrible from the get go. The attendant was slow to serve, and couldn't heat the oil properly. My hypoglycemic girlfriend and I waited for over 45 minutes for the staff to get the oil to the right temperature, after burning our food in the oil. After two different pots of oil and several of the wait staff attempting to adjust it, the oil overheated again at which point I had to demand for the meal to be compped so that I could feed my girlfriend and keep her from passing out. The only upside is that one employee brought over his own dinner from chic-fil-a and gave it to her so she wouldn't faint.

    We dine at the Kennesaw Ga location every few months and we absolutely love it! We love our servers and our food. My only complaint is that I've noticed their portion sizes dwindling over the years and it's pretty pricey, so I feel like the portion sizes needed to stay the same. But overall this is an amazing resturant and an amazing fondue experience!

    We come to the melting pot several times a year for special occasions. This time we came during on a Wednesday We were sat pretty much on time, location was fine and our server Sade (pronounced Shaday) was very personable. The place wasn't that crowded but we hardly saw our server. She got our drinks quickly, took a little longer than usual to get the cheese course (but she asked up front if we needed extra anything and we told her). Salads came out quickly. However, our mojo cooking style was boiling for quite a while before she came to bring entrees. Then took a very long time to get our check. She was handling a few other tables so I don't blame her. But I don't think I'll come on a weekday anymore. Doesn't look like they're staffed

    My wife and I took four of our children (all boys, ages: 7,9,15,17) to the Melting Pot for Mother's Day. I had made a reservation about 2 months ahead of time for 6pm. We arrived at exactly 6pm and unfortunately they did not have a table available. We waited 31 minutes for a table. Have you ever waited 31 minutes for a table with wiggly, hungry boys? Let me tell you it is not pretty. At any rate, the waiter was terrific. The food was great and once we got fed the kids had a great time.

    I took my family to the Melting Pot in Kennesaw for Mother's Day. Overall we had a great time and a unique experience. It was not cheap - roughly $150 for 3 people with only 1 alcholic drink. However it was leisurely and I think we spent at least an hour - probably more - there. Made my wife's Mothers Day very special. I won't be back soon - it's definitely a Special Occasion place for me - but I'd be very happy to go back again when the occasion calls for it. There was only one negative. My wife is an accountant and there was an upcharge for selecting Coq-Au-Vin for our main course which we weren't made aware of. Being our first visit (and clearly stated so to the server), this really should have been made clear. Only $5 but still.

    Overall good but the entire meal took about 2.5 hours for the 3 courses. First course of fondue cheese with bread, raw vegetables, and apples was good. Second course, salad, was typical of any salad you would get at a restaurant. The third course was basically boiled meat, which was alright but not anything exceptional. You are given a choice of uncooked meats. I chose sausage, chicken, and salmon. You then skewer the meat and boil it in a vegetable broth, which takes about 3 minutes per piece. You have a selection of sauces to dip the meat in once it is cooked. It was a nice meal but service was slow and the times between each course was excessive. It was a nice change from the typical restaurants but I really don't see myself returning.

    My boyfriend was in town from the army we decided to take a night and try out melting pot. Our server was nothing short of amazing. Her name was Sarah and she was extremely knowledgable of the menu and gave us wonderful suggestions. She had a great attitude. Positive but not too pushy and made sure we were taken care of. She even left us a personal thank you note with our check. We were both very pleased and she was by far one of the best servers I think I've ever had. I never had to look for her. Very friendly and welcoming! Overall great experience!

    We ended up having a great dinner thanks to out waitress. The greeting/seating needs to be improved. We were greeted at the door, after taking our names, the hostess walked off saying it would be a minute. Minutes later we were standing in the lobby wondering why the restaurant was empty and we were standing waiting to be seated. Hostess finally returned to front desk on a phone call. Then we were seated. Should have more people available to sit customers when the restaurant is nearly empty!

    Had not been to The Melting Pot in over 10 years( not near us). Met some friends and had a great time. Great food and the kind of place you can sit and relax. We never feel rushed! Not somewhere we can go all the time but definetly would recommend for special occasions. Food was just as good as we remembered. Table was a little crowed for four people. Wine was great and service was awesome!

  • The Great Wait
    Overrated
    Dined on 4/4/2014
    First timers, waitress gave us great instructions upon arrival but hard to catch the rest of evening. We chose the 4 course dinners for the experience. The meal took 2 hours & 20 min. Everything was slow. We had to ask another server for refills. I started feeling bad, my wife asked for our dessert to go. Yes, 2 hours & 20 min did not include the dessert. The food was good but pricey, esp since you cook it yourself. I'm sure the food experience is better if you have a better waitress, one who explains and helps you. It's not difficult but as a first timer you do need guidance. For us, it was not worth what we paid. The waitress can definitely make it or break it for you at this restaurant. Disappointed!!

    I had dinner with a couple of friends here the other night for a belated birthday celebration and it was wonderful as always! You can never go wrong with the Melting Pot - the food and service are always perfect and we really, really enjoyed ourselves. We had the 4 course dinner - cheese fondue, salad, entrée and chocolate fondue and it was all outstanding. I'm hoping I'll get to go back with my husband and kids for Mother's Day. :)
