    We'd never been to Rhe Melting Pot before. We had a great time but for a party of 4 it took almost 3 hours from start to finish of our meal. We waited for our server a lot. I think he had a large party in another room as well and our service suffered because of it. The food was excellent and it was a lot of fun. Our server was great...when he was there. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone! We will definitely go back. When our only complaint is a server who obviously had a bad night, we know we've found something great!

    My husband and I took our youngest son: the ten year old foodie, to the Melting Pot for a new experience. I was a bit worried that he wouldn't like it because of its uniqueness but he loved it! Tom made our first time an awesome experience . He went way above and beyond to explain the steps and ensure that my son had everything he needed. Honestly next time we visit I will skip the entree course and stick with the cheese and dessert courses as they were the most enjoyable. I work in the service industry so cooking my own food wasn't all that satisfying. All in all a great time for something tasty and different!

    I've been to The Melting Pot in Atlantic City a couple of times, and it has not disappointed. A friend and I have gone on Thursdays for Girl's Night Out, and as cheese lovers, we love the menu, drinks, and service. We have yet to finish the entire dessert tray! It's definitely worth the experience, and we'll be back for more.

    My husband & I dined here for our anniversary on Oct. 12th. We requested, & were seated in, a private booth for our anniversary. Our waiter was very attentive. We loved the traditional cheddar dip for our 1st course of bread, vegetables, & apples. The house salad was very good, but could be skipped to save room for the other courses! My husband and I both chose entrees with a variety of meats & were both very happy with our selections. The 6 dipping sauces that were served with the entrees were also very good! The cookies n' cream chocolate fondue that we chose to end our meal with was amazing, & we were pleased to be offered additional dessert dippers if needed. We'll definitely be back for our next anniversary!

    We were celebrating my daughters 15th birthday. It was our first time at The Melting Pot so we were a little confused on how it all worked but we had a wonderful server, Mike, who explained everything and gave us great recommendations. Dessert was by far the best! Would definitely go back again.

    First time at this place. A little expensive, but what do you expect when it is attached to Caesars'? We started with a drink. I really wish I would have stuck with a glass. We got a pitcher of red sangria that was too, too sweet and did not taste like wine, much less a decent sangria. The fondue thing is cool. My husband is gluten free and they did a pretty ood job. the only thing is that you share with others, so it is preferable to both be gluten free. Did not seem like much for the money, but we were full when we left. I just felt a little rushed and the place was not busy. But the server did a good job and explained all.

    My fiance and I love Melting Pot and this is one of our favorite locations. If you ask ahead or make an early reservation, you can get a private booth with a sliding glass door to keep you separated from everyone else. Sounds pretentious to write it that way, but it is actually very nice, especially for a date with your significant other. The service has always been great here and the food always fresh and delicious. The only frustrating thing is that Melting Pot in general keeps messing with it's menu. For some unknown reason, they changed the AMAZING brown dipping bread, which was a honey wheat to a brown rye bread and it is AWFUL compared to the former. They also removed the Fiesta cheese from most menus, but not here! Great date night!

    The entire meal was mediocre at best. The starter fondue had a bitter aftertaste and too much beer. Portions were incredibly small, takes a very long time to cook one bite of food, bland, and the service is annoying since everything requires explanation and was incredibly slow. Way too expensive! The only part that was mildly redeeming was the dessert.

    It has been a while since we've been to the Melting Pot. They've revised their menu and added an option to "create your own" experience. We usually just do the cheese and food option anyway so it was perfect. We passed on salads, had the cheese with the bread and veggies for dippers. I'm not sure but they should put these items in bigger containers so that I don't have to keep calling the server to the table everytime we finish up our little container of dippers. A family of 3 can easily go through about 3 of those small containers. Anway, the create your own entree is perfect since we have an individual who is allergic to seafood. They were able to just order chicken or steak or a combination of 3 items from the choices. PERFECT

    My girlfriend and I both had a great first time experience at a fondue restaurant. We had our own little booth away from everyone else, the waiter was awesome, the food was to die for, and even though the meal (plus tip) cost about $116 for both of us it was well worth it. We are already planning our next trip back.

    Entrees were expensive and it was an up charge for the fondue that was the most flavorful. The reason you r there is for the fondue and it was ridiculous to be charged extra for anything that wasn't broth or oil. Very disappointed. We couldn't cook vegetables to taste good just tasted hot but raw.

    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.

    For two years now, this has been a special occasion spot for my boyfriend and myself. I do prefer the private booths, it creates such an intimate atmosphere. Service here is always exceptionally wonderful. It's filled with friendly, personable service (who are always patient with my indecisiveness). The one thing I would recommend is better quality or better preparation of the tofu. My boyfriend is a vegetarian, and he didn't get to enjoy the actually entree portion of his meal. Otherwise, no complaints from us.

    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.
