    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    We were a group of 8 - adults and 3 kids age ten. The waiter was so sweet but obviously in over his head. It took over 45 minutes to get our first round of drinks. After waiting, he didn't know how to open a wine bottle so we took his corkscrew and opened it ourselves. This happened twice since we ordered 2 bottles over the course of the evening. We have been to Melting Pot several times. This was by far the strangest experience. I wouldn't call it terrible because you could see how hard the waiter was trying, but it was extremely slow, the bar tender came out to help him start the fondues at one point. We were there for 3 1/2 hours - way to long for any dinner. I think the staff needs more training or assistance.

    Let me start with, the food being excellent. We we to the restaurant for my birthday and there were 6 of us. It is perfect for groups. But when the idea in Atlantic City is to get back to the slot machines, it took way to long. I have been to Melting Pot before and we were out of there in 1 1/2 tops. It took us 3 hours!! In between courses our waiter would disappear for 1/2 hour. Since I picked the restaurant, I felt horrible. My friends husbands were not pleased and kept making comments. Do not pick this restaurant unless you plan on using up most of your night.

    I visit The Melting Pot about once every 3 months. I have been to the AC location approx 5 times, I have never encountered less then average service till this time. The waiter was friendly but did not explain anything to the table & we had a couple people in our party that had never been to The Melting Pot before. The meal usually takes approx 2 hrs for the 4 course experience, ours took over 3, we waited almost a 1/2 hr to get our entrees after we finished our salads. When we got our chocolate fondue, they were both cold. The waiter finally came back around to us to turn the burners up to the correct temp. as we were finishing up. We were very disappointed w/ our experience at this location & will not be returning anytime soon.

    We've been coming to the melting pot in AC for years. A couple times a month in season. We've noticed a significant decline in foot traffic in the restaurant recently. The portions are getting smaller and the vibe of the restaurant is dwindling. On a Saturday night in July, the bar was empty. The decline in AC casinos is having a ripple effect to the restaurant scene. It is a shame

    We never leave THE MELTING POT disappointed. Menu changed slightly since we were last here but it was for the better. The Caprese Salad is a refreshing new change. Service was, as usual, exceptional, professional and welcoming. We enjoy this location as we can take a casual stroll along the boardwalk afyer our meal.

    My boyfriend and I are from out of town and he had just graduated boot camp. We decided to go celebrate that and our anniversary at the same time. The gave us a VIP room very excluded from the dinning area but still served very well. The food was to die for and the dessert was amazing! Definitely coming back again! Highly recommending it to friends and family!

    I was excited to go to the melting pot in part because of the vegetarian options but was told by our server that all the food at the table would be cooked in the same sauce so that the vegetarian food would be mixed with my companions' meat dishes which makes no sense and effectively foreclosed the option of my having a main course. Also, with regard to the fondue although the cheese fondue was good, the portions were ridiculously small and the chocolate fondue was not heated properly so it was like eating fruit with Hershey's syrup.

    My first visit to the Melting Pot, AC was a few years ago with my husband... We had a fantastic experience. This week I went with a friend for Ladies Night and was mostly disappointed. Drinks were extremely weak and dippers were not overly fresh. We felt a bit rushed through our entire meal. Not sure I would return anytime soon.

    Salads prepared improperly-nuts in wrong salad-and waitress only comment was 'will tell co-worker'. 2nd cocktail not made like 1st. Did not get water refill unless asked and then only got one refill even though glasses clearly empty when waitress returned. Waitress rushed meal after salad complaint. Did not refill entree dipping sauce even though said she would. Had coupon for free strawberries but didn't take it off bill until reminded. Never saw a manger. Staff repeatedly walked back and forth past room looking in.

    The decor looks like a prison everything is grey and black. Then you have horrible 40s music blasting in the background. We had a living social deal for 4 people that I got for $100. Unfortunately Our 4th person couldn't come. They did nothing to acknowledge The extra money paid for the other person, no extra meal no discount Nothing. Then the food, we got the cheddar , all you could taste was the Bitter beer they put in. The entree comes out raw so they brought me Slabs of raw duck and filet that you had to boil in this nasty smelling broth They bring six sauces, none of which tasted of anything. Finally when I gave Them my phone to scan the voucher. They had no way to scan it so we Spent 20 minutes searching emails to get the number!

    AC's MP has a great layout, but the food prep does not match other locations. Example, mozzarella in the capresse salad=2 tiny pieces, out of asparagus? For the vegetarian option, that's pretty important (run to the grocery store!), and no whole strawberries to dip? What? Instead one large over rip strawberry sliced!!! You would not find any of this happening at the other locations we've visited. And this was a birthday dinner!!!

    We made reservations an hour beforehand and we're seated immediately upon arrival. The interior decoration is modern and attractive, while giving a hint of romanticism with the private rooms along the sides of the restaurant. I cannot emphasize how we were treated by our server, Vinny. The fondue idea is fantastic and new, yet it does not alter the flavor of the food. With our entrée, we were given six different sauces to compliment the chicken, lobster and beef we ordered. In addition, the cheese fondue comes with unlimited bread and vegetables, while the dessert fondue comes with unlimited sweets. Everything about this restaurant is great but do not come on a day in which you are on a busy schedule.

    This was my first visit to The Melting Pot and it did not disappoint! Our waitress was fun and knowledgable too. We had the 4 Cheese (Quatre Fromage) as our main course. The dippers were a variety of raw veggies, apples and white & wheat breads were plentiful, though Danielle offered more. It was Delicious!!! We had such a good and relaxing time. No rush here...they want you to fully enjoy each course. We moved on to dessert from here...The Chocolate Turtle. All fondues are mixed table side by your server. Chocolate, caramel and pecans in our case.Yumm! Dippers ranged from fresh fruits to brownie and blondie bites and marshmallows. Sooooo good!! We highly recommend a visit. Will try the entrees next time!

    Went to The Melting Pot on the recommendation of a family friend. Made reservations through Open Table for dinner for 4 to celebrate a birthday. Ordering was a a little confusing yet simple if that makes sense. When the food came out we were a little surprised it was raw, but the whole cooking yourself was an awesome experience. We were fortunate to have a table with 2 burners so we had 2 different cocking styles. The food was EXCELLENT!! The sirloin was tender the tuna was delicious and sauces were a perfect touch. Customer service beyond expectations. A manager overheard we were military and thanked us and also added a military discount on the already greatly priced meal. Definitely will recommend and revisit soon!!
