    We love to go to the melting pot. Such good food. This location is not my favorite. There are too many tourists which makes it crowded all the time. If you want a quiet romantic dinner go to the Longwood location and ask for Fernando he is the best server. At one point in the meal there was a slight issue with the cheese, the manager came over and immediately took care of the issue. Overall it's a good restaraunt, just not good for date night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/22/2012
    Very dark, but not really in a 'romantic' way - just felt poorly lighted. We were in a back corner booth and felt almost as though we had been placed in 'time out'. Service was attentive with various 'helpers' - including the manager - appearing throughout the meal to provide extras, refill drinks, etc. Which was a good thing because from the way our table was situated, we would not have been able to get anyone's attention should there have been a need. There is no 'waiting area' in the lobby and the bar area is insufficient for the number of people waiting for tables. Would we go again? Probably, but it's not in my top ten.

This time especially, it was my fiancé's birthday and everyone employee that came to the table made it a point to wish him a happy birthday, even gave him a card. Our waitress Brittany was absolutely the best waitress we have had, anywhere! She should be training others!

    Dined on 9/16/2012
    Service Service was really slow, server was very nice but we seemed to wait ages, 10 minutes plus, for refills and it did take a while to get the "courses" out. Food Cheese Fondue appetizer was lovely, Chocolate dessert Fondue was yummy. We had Fondue Feast for Entree course and it was just OK, the Buffalo chicken wasn't nice flavor and it was sinewy. Cooking time for Veggies, especially potatoes need to be longer than they recommend. Ambiance Dark, and on top of your neighboring table we could hear everything from couple beside us. Value Did the magical dining so wasn't bad for what we got. Would go again but it will be a while as it is more fun than serious dining.

    I like to try one new restaurant(to me) on Visit Orlando's Magical Dining list every September. This year I chose The Melting Pot because several of my friends recommended it. My husband and I really enjoyed it. If you want a romantic, leisure dining experience; this is definitely a good choice. It is especially a great place to spend time together getting to know each other. It was great fun cooking our own food at our table and the food was fabulous.

It was very good then but my latest experience has proven that the brand has updated to be chic and sophisticated with impeccable service and care to the diner. The food was very fresh and the choices were plentiful. A ggod time was had by all.

The service was a little slow and at times we were waiting for things like refills or to have that stinky pot of oil removed from our table but the servers were all very friendly. We had a great time!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/7/2012
    Having never been, I was unsure what to expect and had only heard good things. I really enjoyed the cheese and chocolate fondue, but was not a fan of cooking my own bite sized entrees in boiling flavored broth. Service was excellent, but the restaurant was overall tight and we could easily hear the tables next to ours conversations. Overall, I did not see value in the price we paid compared to the amount/quality of food we received. It was a nice change of pace, but definitely a restaurant I won't be frequenting.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    This was my first time to a fondue restaurant and it was great. I got an all American style entree while my husband got the Asian inspired one. I really expected the seasonings on the different meats to just dissolve into the broth, but I was really surprised how much flavor remained after cooking and that the broth didn't get "muddy" towards the end of the meal. We got the seasonal chocolate fondue with crunchy peanut butter and wildberry puree and it was AWESOME! It was an expensive meal, even though we got a discounted rate because of the Magical Dining Month promotion. We would definitely come back, but can't afford to often. Service was great.

    What's nice about this place is there are various rooms so couples can have a romantic evening while families can also enjoy their time out. The appetizers and desserts. Exceeded the main course but most people I speak to feel this way about fondue . The drink list was fantastic too. Only complaint was that the filet mignon was cut against the grain and had ligament so it was not tender . It is something everyone should try once , our 3 year old thought it was fun !
