A word from The Melting Pot - Arrowhead
The Melting Pot Restaurant is where fun is cooked up fondue style.

Romantic for Couples and Great in a Group.

Our Glendale restaurant is conveniently located in the Arrowhead neighborhood just on 59th Ave. N. just South of the 101 in the Citadelle Plaza.

The modern yet warm casually elegant atmosphere sets the mood for a relaxing evening. The leisurely paced four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale, all served with decadent dippers. Most make reservations for the four-course dining experience but more than a few have stopped by to satisfy that cheese fondue or chocolate craving. Hand crafted cocktails and great wine list.

  • Reservation not really a reservatn

    I was disappointed to have a reservation at 615 and arrive 10 minutes early to sit and wait for almost 30 minutes to be seated. We checked in when we arrived but the person there clearly was not paying attention because when I went back up to ask what was the purpose of a 615 reservation if we had to wait until 635 to be seated she goes what's your name and what time was your reservation. She finally goes opps sorry about that I will find a table. We spent over 200.00 and this was by far our worst customer services. She had no idea what she was doing and was not very friendly more concerned about her phone and talking to other employes

    We have dined at The Melting Pot several times and it is usually a great experience. This time, the food was good but the service was bad. Our server took our plates after the cheese fondue and we waited a half hour for our main entree. We sat in a private booth with curtains and she would open them and then forget to close them. We had to keep closing them every time she came by. She made a mistake on our bill too and charged us twice for something.

    My wife and I have always chosen the Arrowhead Melting Pot for our recent date night spot. Our first 2 visits there were truly wonderful experiences. Great service, great presentation, greats aromas, great suggestions, and great food. Our last visit had all of the above, with the exception of service. As our area was far from busy, our waiter seemed less and less interested in serving us as the evening progressed. Simple things that would have made huge differences. Refills on not just drinks, but on dippers as well. His attention to detail seemed to dissipate after our first course. Thankfully, the next time we will remember to request our previous server, James... as we were able to get his name in passing.

  • Disappointing changes

    Dined on 8/8/2014
    We used to consider this a "nice" restaurant, where we'd go for birthdays, etc. while the price is still high, there have been negative changes, which I can only guess are attempts to decrease MP's overhead. New bread bowls with cheese fondue are much smaller, without variety of breads. Salads are small and tasteless? With croutons that are so tasteless and stale, they make the salad almost inedible. No more cheesecake with the chocolate fondue. All the special touches that brought us to this restaurant 10 years ago have gone. This will be our last visit

    Service was great, food was great, the problem was the server did not apply my 100 gift card to the bill, so they charged me the full amount. I called the restaurant the next day to explain to mgr what happened. He stated he would not give my credit card the credit back but would mail me out 100 back in melting pot credit. So my thoughts are 1: this is a scam, 2 server stole my gift card or 3 honest mistake on their part but will not fix it to customer satisfaction. I guess I will never know but not happy with end result.

    this was our first time eating here, we got the four course meal which was great. we did find it odd that since we both had ordered the same entree and we got 1 plate between the 2 of us, we noticed the couple across from us had ordered 2 different entrees and the guy got the same amount of food on his plate for 1 as we got on our plate for 2. we were also blown away by the fact we had to cook our own entree, weird but interesting and a totally different experience. i know we will be back but most likely only for la a carte items that are already cooked.

    I took my granddaughter there for a special occasion and was very impressed - at first the food didn't look like it was going to satisfy our appetites, granddaughter especially as she is a big eater, however we both felt very full and was more than satisfied when we left. A little costly but a great place to do something for special situations. Wouldn't be a weekly venue I would go to because of the cost.

    We loved the cheese fondu and breads, we like the chocolate fondu and assortment of dippers. We felt that the prices are too high for the quality of meats used. You were skimpy on he good veggies like broccoli compared to the amount of celery and carrots served. Beer price is too high. You should offer kids prices, $39.99 for children dinner is outrageous. I don't consider your restaurant fine dining, but your prices are higher than the Phoenician, the Salt Cellar, Elements, and Femmings.

    We ordered Salads and Cheeses for three. When our server returned we didn't get salad. Our server mixed the cheeses making a real mess. We also received only one bowl of dippers but we had ordered two cheeses. We had to go up to the bar to ask for more items to dip, our server was the bartender. It was not busy. We received our salads, and our bread. Minutes later we received the Chocolate menu, after the poor service we opted not to get any chocolate. In order to get our server to deliver the check we had to again go up to the bar. When our server arrived with the check he had rung up the wrong order. Then after returning the corrected check we got a 'if I'm too busy up at the bar just bring the check by'. Hopefully just a bad experience.

    Service too fast. Salad brought before previous course finished. Same with main course. Main course utensils crowded and hard to reach condiments. Cheese and chocolate ran out way before the dipping foods did. Still like the place, but are going to compare other Phoenix area Melting Pots to see if they are the same.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the Melting Pot and I'm extremely pleased that we did! The food, the service, the environment, if was all excellent! As long as you know to plan about 2 hours +/- (assuming you do all four courses) then the experience will be relaxing and fulfilling. Would only recommend bringing children who are comfortable with sitting quietly for Lin periods of time. Otherwise, I would suggest this restaurant for dates or a small party of adults.

    Restaurants that I have visited for special occasions, i.e. birthday as in this case, recognize the special guest with a freebie of some sort to make their experience memorable. The Melting Pot does not do this so stop asking your guests and setting up an expectation that you don't deliver. Our waiter on our first visit offered us more protein items. The waitress on our recent visit did not. What is the policy so I know what to expect?

    My wife and I have been here before, so we knew what to expect. We were celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary. But unlike in the past, this time we are both on a low cal/low fat diet. Hmm….maybe not the best choice with all the tasty cheese dips and chocolaty fondue choices, eh? Well, after telling the server our situation, she was kind enough to make a few recommendations of just how to keep the caloric content to a reasonable level and still enjoy a great dining experience. The server was both knowledgeable and friendly….and she was not at all put off by our dietary restrictions, making several intelligent suggestions. Highly recommend!
