Diner Reviews
  • "Waiter was very attentive without overdoing. Manager checked on us twice and we enjoyed talking to him about specialized drinks. We always have the 4-course meal and leave STUFFED but can't resist cleaning our plates. We requested more dipping sauces and fruit and all was provided promptly. I had the "spiked" basil lemonade (can't remember the name) and it was DELICIOUS! Who woulda thought those two would go together so well?"

  • "We had 3 children under the age of 4. They did well with noise level and were able to wait patiently to dip their treats. However, I wouldrrecommend a nice quiet night without kids. We were . There for an out of the ordinary experience."

  • "Wonderful, that's the only way to explain this restaurant. This restaurant is the best restaurant for a date, or when you just want some quiet, or a night out. I love the ambiance (the low lighting, the peaceful music), the separation between tables for privacy, and most of all the chocolate. Nothing beats fondue chocolate especially when you can smother it over strawberries, brownies, and pound cake. The spinach artichoke cheese dip is amazing, and I don't even like artichoke. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll love it."

  • "Had a great time with family celebrating our daughter's birthday! She eats Gluten Free meals, and your staff was excellent in coordinating this with the rest of our meal. I enjoyed the relax way of our 4 course meal. Took us nearly 3 hours eat, but enjoyed every minute of the experience."

  • "Another great experience. Changes to the menu were all positive. Server was great and manager spent time visiting with us. Overall an excellent birthday dinner experience!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The service was enthusiastic and the food was good, as expected. However, we continually bumped up against items, listed on the menu, not available. "We are out of that". Was very frustrating. We kept telling ourselves, so why don't they just go the the store and purchase these items until their next shipment or TAKE THEM OFF THE MENU! Server was friendly, but not as knowledgeable as we would have expected. Could not answer some of our questions. This is a management shortfall. Overall experience was fun but I thought way over-priced for the quality of the food & experience."

  • "I made reservations ahead of time , hoping to have a romantic dinner but instead felt that they forgot my reservation and was seated near the entrance and we were the only customers. Problem was we felt left out. We felt like the extra table that the server had to come all the way to our section and service took a long time. I felt it was over priced and not worth the $90 I spent. I would only come back for a coffee and dessert in the afternoon."

  • "We had the server named Logan who did a great job. I wish the air conditioner wasn't running so much it was kind of freezing in there, and although I like the intimacy of the table I had it was kind of awkwardly positioned and made sitting somewhat uncomfortable. Overall though, I would definitely recommend it and I would definitely go back."

  • "We were celebrating our 22 Anniversary with 3 kids. The food was fantastic and delicious. We spent about 3 hours there and never felt rushed to finish. The room was a bit noisy with a large party, but after they finished it was much nicer, even then we were able to carry on our own conversation easily. The update of the induction cook tops were a great surprise adding a little more safety for our children. Our server was great at suggesting some cost saving ideas. He was very nice and made the occasion great. We will definitely return."

  • "Outstandiing! Hadn't been to the Melting Pot in years! That will not happen again! Food and service were excellent! Our waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. The setting was perfect, two of my good friends and I enjoyed the atmosphere, private and quiet. In fact, we all commented several times on how nice it was to be in a restaurant that was not loud and noisy and where we could actually enjoy each other's conversation! We all agreed that we would definitely be coming back to The Melting Pot!!! It was a delightful evening!!! A special "thank you" to the manager, he came by several times (in a non-intrusive way) making sure all was OK."

  • "My husband and had been wanting to try it for a long time so when he got his promotion it was the perfect excuse to go. We were not disappointed. Although a bit pricey the experience was amazing!! Loved the experience and our waitress was absolutely amazing. I'm already thinking of taking my mom for Mother's Day!"

  • "I had a wonderful time at the melting pot for their teacher appreciation night. I had never been to the melting pot before because I had heard it was extremely expensive however even though I was there on a discount I did not feel treated any different then those around me. I was filled with great food and an amazing experience. Thank you for such an amazing experience."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I went, for the first time ever, on Teacher Appreciation night. What a nice, affordable way to be introduced to the restaurant and concept! Everything was great. The area with booth seating for only two was a bit devoid of personality. Some art on the wall would have been nice but our server more than made up for the minimalism. Plan to spend some time enjoying everything! You won't want to rush the experience."

  • "I called for reservations for 8 only an hour before we wanted to be there. The hostess put us in a private room that was perfect for the meeting."

  • "My grandson and I have birthdays close together so we decided to bring the whole family to Melting Pot to celebrate. We wanted to have our celebration at a special place, and Melting Pot was perfect. It was a very memorable dining experience. We were all happy that we chose Melting Pot."

  • "Went with friends to celebrate a birthday. Had a fun evening. However, when we've been in the past for special occasions, the restaurant has put a card or a flower on the table if we've noted it on our reservation. We noticed other tables with cards, but nothing on ours which was disappointing. The fondue is always tasty, but they've gotten skimpier on the dippers. They also need to dim the lights more - too bright for an evening out. Sort of feels like an IHOP with the bright lights."

  • "I HAVE BEEN TOLD OF THIS PLACE MANY TIMES. LOVED THE SEATING,WAITER WAS IN GREAT SPIRIT VERY HELPFUL FOR 1ST TIME COUPLE HAVING DINNER.MY ONLY CHANGE WOULD BE TO TRY THE OILSFOR COOKINGASI LIKE MY FOOD CRISPY 8) . WILL RETURN TO TRY. I RECOMEND THE YIN&YANG FOR DESSERT"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We sat in the very back of the restaurant and had a very nice, slow-paced yummy dinner. We were allowed to split the entree which we very much appreciated because we didn't need that much food and had to save room for dessert! We ordered dark chocolate with amaretto and it was good, but it was way too runny and not very dark chocolate at all. They should work on that. Great service, but it is VERY loud everywhere in the restaurant but thank goodness we were far from the bar! It was Friday evening happy hour and it was lively in there! I think this restaurant COULD be romantic, but it's too loud for that in my opinion."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants to visit for special occasions, such as my wife's recent birthday. We have never been even slightly disappointed with the food or service. Would definitely recommend The Melting Pot to anyone who wants a fun, delicious, and well served dining experience."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Our server Jenny really exerted herself to make sure we were completely happy, and we were! The recent changes to the menu made ordering the perfect meal much easier - thanks, Melting Pot, for becoming even more accommodating!"

  • "I took my husband here as a surprise for our 6 yr anniversary. I work at a financial institution and deal with customer service and attempt to provide the best so when I go places that is my number one observation on the staff who is helping us and the staff surrounding. I have to tell you, the waitress we had was so bubbly and friendly but professional as well that she just made the entire experience so much worth while. There were other associates that also came and took our plates or brought out our drinks and their level of teamwork and courtesy was the cherry on top. Yes it's pricey but you pay for the experience and the fun and definitely the customer service!!"

  • "I had a choice of where I wanted to go and celebrate my birthday, and I picked The Melting Pot. I hadn't been there since the move and I remembered how pleasant the experience was last time and wanted to have that special time again. My partner had never been to any place lilke this before and was a little skeptical. But, after we had finished our dinner, he too thought that it was a very pleasant evening and that the food was great. The service was exceptional and we loved the quiet aatmosphere during our dinner."

  • "I decided to take my wife to the location on 2201 Uptown Loop Rd NE #1A, Albuquerque, NM 87110 for her birthday as a surprise. We have never been, but always heard about it. Overall experience was amazing. The choice cuts of meats, the crisp veggies, server's name I had forgotten, but he was very patience with us first timers and explained everything in a matter that was very easy to follow. We were grateful impressed and will DEFINITELY be back for the dinner portion. I truly have no complaints, keep up the great work. I have a suggestion though.....more locations in Albuquerque, New Mexico, maybe on the northwest side."

  • "Everything was good! Although it is pretty pricy for a small entrée and for having to cook your own food."

  • "Everything was great till dessert came. We enjoyed everything and definitely will be back. But the flaming turtle was not up to a 5 star rating. Server was great. Great personality. The dessert came out and they gave us what seemed to be left overs. 1/4 a bowl of strawberries. A couple thin thin thin cut bananas. And 2 brownies. We went to ask for more and the server was no where to be found. The only time all night I had a complaint. But otherwise id recommend!"

  • "We love the mixture of Swiss and other cheeses in wine base, a perfect flavor to our liking. A very enjoyable evening enhanced by personal and attentive server."

  • "The Melting Pot is my birthday dinner location. You can eat enough food to fill you for two meals, and take some home. It is so much fun choosing the different Fondue pots and then seeing how they make the different dipping items taste different. I like that you can now choos your own individual plate of meats, but it is still enough for 2 people. Recommend this restaurant to everyone, just be careful becasue it can get really expensive."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Great food & our reservation was honored. It was an "off" night, plenty of empty tables, had to insist on a table w/2 fondue pots - the hostess kept saying that they only provide groups of 4 or more with that setup. We wanted a cheese fondue and a non-cheese fondue at the same time & needed 2 pots.Waited 20 minutes for drinks. Waited 40 minutes for cheese fondue. Waited another 20 minutes for the 2nd fondue & entrée dipping meat. By then, what was left of the cheese fondue hardened to an unappetizing residue in the pot. We asked a passing staff person to turn it off & she inadvertently turned the 2nd fondue off & turned the cheese fondue heat higher! We ordered the dessert so that we would, hopefully, get it close to the end of the meal."

  • "Great food and service, however make sure have time to sit down and enjoy your meal. This is not a in-and-out restaurant. Also, be prepared to spend close to $100 with tip on a party of three. If money and time are no issue, this place is amazing!"
