    The management and staff at this Melting Pot are top notch! Ariel, our server, did an awesome job and was very knowledgable. The manager stopped by our table to chat and we mentioned the loud crying baby a few booths over. He handled the situation with grace and professionalism. My husband mentioned it was my birthday and next thing I knew, I was presented with a birthday card and a candle in our dessert! No loud embarrassing displays, just the same quiet elegance that brings me back to The Melting Pot time after time.

    It was good but left feeling like I had spent an awful lot of money for a little bit of food. Not sure I would go back other than for solely the experience. Service was attentive and then she must have gone on break while manager filled in. Sodas were refilled endlessly and promptly. Next time I'll spend more money for the different cooking liquids offered.

    There were two couples for a birthday celebration. Was seated promptly (we had reservations), we were greeted by our server and she took our drink order. All courses were explained and options presented. The food was delivered as we finished the previous course - great timing. Food was very good. But I was a little surprised with a $300.00 + bill including tip. But we only go on special occasions and everyone enjoyed it, so I would definitely recommend the Melting Pot.

    We went to The Melting Pot for my wife's birthday and the experience was amazing! Cody, our server, was fantastic! He was extremely knowledgeable on the expansive menu options and wine. Todd, who was the manager that night, was fantastic as well. Together, Cody, Todd and the rest of the staff had everything set up exactly as I had wanted. My wife had no idea what to expect and we arrived with a bottle of Luccio on the table and ended with the cake I had brought in earlier that day. Everything was delivered perfectly with the meals timed out flawlessly. Thank you again for the wonderful experience. We will definitely be back again!

    We had a good time and my 6 year old very much enjoyed it as well (though we were told this isn't always the case). The food was quite good as well. One item of note, if you have a younger child like us, they probably can't eat enough to warrant adding and extra serving to a cheese dish and the dessert one. There is no price for a child addition to these, and instead the up-charge is a full adult cost and portion (almost $10 in each case). We did it on the cheese and not the dessert, and found out we could have skipped it on the cheese. Still, a good time!

    We wanted to have a special dinner while our daughter was home from college for Spring Break. She had never been to The Melting Pot, so we decided to make reservations. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It gave us time to talk and also fun memories as we cooked together (and lost stuff in the pot!) While it is more expensive than the restaurants we usually visit, it was worth it for a special occasion.

    I had another amazing experience with the Melting Pot for my birthday dinner. As a hospitality professional I understand the meaning of great service and it is rare that I find service to exceed my standards, but the Melting Pot went above and beyond to make my day special! The birthday card was such a nice touch that made my evening that much better. Our server, Sara, was so friendly and attentive all night! The manager was also very attentive to checking in on us and making sure our every need was met. The food was incredible like always. Thank you for making another birthday special for me. I will definitely be back again.

    It was my first time dining here and our server was absolutely phenomenal! He took the time to explain the "fondue experience" and was 100% engaging with our table. As it was an "experience", this is not somewhere I would go regularly, but rather for a special or specific occasion. Food was excellent, service was excellent - five stars all around!

    The Melting Pot on Sand Lake Road is a great place for a quiet, romantic evening. Although the place is fairly large, the booth is semi private and you and your special someone feel secluded and alone. I enjoy going and always have a great experience. This was the place for our first date and remains our Anniversary site.

    Upon opening the door, the pungent odor of cleaning compounds, sets the aroma of the experience. This is heightened by the cross section of various foods being prepared in orchestra, not at all the pleasing smell of my normal dining experience. I am still wondering if it is a costly activity or is the pricing to ordering ratio so confusing that this is on the high end of $$$!

  • Too much hype!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 1/24/2014
    It was interesting... but way overpriced... and although I had lobster it was rather disappointing! Think about it... lobster cooked in beef boullion.... doesn't sound very good does it... it wasn't! And the dipping sauces were all gross. .. all 6 of them. Oh even the butter for the lobster was some kind of butter sauce... also not good. Only thing that was good was the cheese fondue. Even the chocolate fondue was mediocre. And then we got the check.... way too much money. HUGE disappointment!

    For a family who puts a strong emphasis on food...with only three nights of dining this would be our last night in Orlando...and we ended on a high note! Matt our server was 150%, the management who kept checking on us ws 150% and the unique method of cooking your own created coversation, laughter, flavors and fun! Loved every minute of it and so glad we chose to come visit as it made our last night a special one! We will look for one in our home town area and certainly make the drive!

    I booked my reservation on-line for 6:30.I went into the restaurant at 5:30 to see if I could change my reservation to 7:00.The hostesses told me that there was nothing else and they would only hold the table until 6:45 as that table was reserved for 8:30 and it takes about and hour and a half for dinner.When I left the restaurant, they told me that if anything changed they would call me.When they did not call me and it became clear that I was not going to make it my 6:45, we went to Plan B and went to Kobe's instead. At 8:30, I checked my phone and saw I had a missed call from The Melting Pot at 7:30 asking if we were on our way. If we had known that, we would have shown up at 7-but I did not want to risk not being able to eat.

    Bring people who are special to you and expect a fun packed night! My girlfriend had never been and she's so eager to get back because of the great time we had. You don't have to go all out with your spending at this place to enjoy the good either. Any fondue four course experience is an exceptional meal provided by speedy, energetic, friendly service. Five stars. One of my all time faves.
