  • "we ejoyed our visit very much! the cheese fondue was delicious. we look forward to our next visit. our waiter was very attentive"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "From the moment you walk in, it's very quiet and has a very romantic feel. We went for a out of town date-night and enjoyed it so much! Our server was very friendly and helpful."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I enjoyed the experience! However, the entree was not very enjoyable, only because everything is basically "boiled" at the table. However, I would go back for the appetizer, salad, and dessert only. The entree was not needed. The fun part is dipping the veggies and bread in cheese (which is filling) and the salad with pecans, gorgonzola, and blackberry vinaigrette was perfect! I had the "yin/yang" chocolate fondue for dessert with assorted fruit and treats to dip, which was also fun and delish!"
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Pricey, but worth it for a special occasion or romantic dinner. Many fondue options; everything we tried was excellent. Service lagged at one point during the evening but our waiter apologized and completed the meal with full but unobtrusive attention."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "I had never been to a Melting Pot before, and my first time I get greeted with a server that brought it to my attention that it was only his second day. I must say, Blake calmed my nerves very quickly. He took very good care of us, and provided a fun, enjoyable dining experience. Thanks!"

  • "We were worried dinner might be chaotic having our three and one year old with us but our waiter was amazing with anticipating their wants and needs. He was very helpful with adjusting dips slightly for children's likes and dislikes. He also was very friendly and great to converse with. The food was amazing as always but our waiter really made our night special."

  • "We had a wonder experience for my wife's birthday. They made sure that we enjoyed the food, the staff was very attentive and did a wonderful job. We will definitely be returning again. I recommend going for an early dinner if you would like to enjoy a quite private meal."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the experience. Had never had fondue before. We got the 4 course dinner and left satisfied. The desserts were delicious!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "First time at The Melting Pot. My experience there was great, I wanted to have a romantic night out with my husband, and that is exactly what happened. The food was really good, but that dessert was to die for. I was too full to eat it all but I just couldn't stop myself, it was so yummy. Chocolate and peanut butter fondue!!!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "While the service is very nice, it tends to be fairly slow at this Melting Pot. The food is still great! I have been here a few times and every time the service has been slow, but the quality of the food is outstanding. Each booth is fairly private and would be great for a romantic date night.I have never been to a Melting Pot with a large party, but the room I have seen looks very nice and is definitely more private than the rest of the restaurant."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "My husband and I went to the Melting Pot for the first time since I had received a gift certificate for my birthday. Because the restaurant is so expensive, I would have never gone there without the gift certificate. We got the 4 course option, which meant we got the full experience. It was a lot of fun, but if I ever went there again, I would only do 1-2 courses - both because of the cost and because we were stuffed when we were done. It was a lot of fun and I'm very glad we went. The food was excellent and the service was as well."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "North Austin standby -- good for special occasions. Recently tightened the menu with emphasis on basics. Same for the wine list -- for red wine Rodney Strong is a good choice. Nice addition is the option to have roses on the table. Always ask for a booth."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "Every time my husband and I go it's a great time. (And jow when family visits they want to go to). The cheese is great; however our absolute fave is leaving when menu becomes regional (have to memorize what's in it); con a Vin is our goto cooking style; salads are always fresh with spinach that is not wilted; and always willing to bring extra apples. We have started to go to special events like the brunch, doll up (dress up Hollywood glam-classic), and happy hour. These seem to bring closer together everytime."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "My first time at the Austin location, they did a great job, and my partner's first time ever. The hostess and manager were very pleasant and our waiter was great. He made some excellent drink suggestions and was able to answer our questions about the menu. The reservation went through without a hitch, we arrived 5-10 minutes early and were seated within 5 minutes. All of the food was excellent over the 4-course meal; Cheddar Bacon to start, House and Cali Salads, Coq Au Vin with the Pacific Rim and Steak Lovers for entrees, and the Classic Chocolate to finish. Stuff your mushrooms with the Green Goddess sauce once they're ready! Our drinks were outstanding as well, the Devil's in the Details and the Candied Bourbon are definite repeats."

  • "We love coming to Melting Pot for special ocassions. It helps us really enjoy ourselves and truly be with each other for the meal. Nobody checks their phone or text others. It is a FUN dinner and the dessert is always the favorite course!!!!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The food was great. Clean, beautiful restaurant including the restrooms. Cost was a little high. Service was a little slow as far as beverages and requests but overall great experience! We will go again in the near future!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This was a great place for a date night. Though I know my kids would love this for a bday dinner as well. Went early (5pm) and it was so quite and was great for our date night!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "My wife and I have been to The Melting Pot a few other times by ourselves, however, we decided to take the kids for an early dinner on Sunday. It went very well, the boys really enjoyed it. Our boys are still young (10, 5 & 4) and we don't take them to nicer places very often (we don't want to disturb other patrons). Anyway, the boys thought it was great and asked when we could go back again. As always, the food was fantastic. Our server did a great job and had some really nice recommendations. I highly recommend The Melting Pot. It is a little on the pricey side, so we try to stick with a special "date night" or other occasion when we go, but you definitely get what you pay for!"

    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We went with another couple. We enjoyed watching the waiter mix up the ingredients for the fondue right in front of you. I highly recommend the four course meal. Also, the cream Brulé dessert is to die for. Be prepared to be there to have to three hours."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was my first opportunity to visit the Melting Pot and I must admit it was well worth it. There was no sense of rush and the staff were very polite and helpful. The experience was nothing short of exceptional and I would highly recommend anyone to try this restaurant. The 4 course meal was great and worth the money spent with someone special."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Absolutely amazing dining experience. Expect to take your time dining and enjoy every bite! I love to find an excuse to go any time I can. There are so many healthy and delicious options and if a glass of wine is desired, the listing is comprehensive (check dessert menu, too, to get full drink list)."

  • "We had a great time at The Melting Pot. The prices are high, but you can easily spend a couple of hours there. We loved the cheese appetizer and the original chocolate with peanut butter for dessert!"

  • "Always a great food with an awesome waitstaff experience."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I have been to this Melting Pot numerous times. This time we were disappointed because our server rushed us and was not personable. Our server brought the dessert menu to us shortly after we started to eat our meal. It was almost like he wanted to get rid of us. He also picked up the completed check while we were still finishing our wine. In our experience a good waiter/waitress never picks up the completed check until we are gone. This has never happened before at this restaurant and it has made us feel like we don't want to return. We don't like to be rushed."

  • "desert the best part of the night. I would go again just for the desert and wine."
    Dined on 7/13/2013
  • "My husband and I have been to The Melting Pot every year on our anniversary. And every year they out-do themselves. The manager came out with two champaign glasses with strawberries after our meal to congratulate us. And our waiter, Bryan, was by FAR better than any waiter I have ever had. Great ambience. Great service. See yall next year!"

  • "Our family always enjoys celebrating birthdays at The Melting Pot. The are very consistent."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "We took a group of 8 for my daughters birthday. Everyone had a good time, we had 2 cook tops, so we were able to have both an adult options and a kid friendly one. The serve even brought a candle for my daughters dessert selection."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "I should not really comment on the value of the food or the concept of cooking your own food as I'm not a fondue fan. But I can say that the food provided for us to cook was of high quality. I'm sure that a real fondue fan would be impressed. The service was pretty average and does not meet expectations when you consider that the meal is over $50/person."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Went for my birthday dinner and had amazing time. The food was fantastic. It I'd a bit expensive, but justifiably so."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "We truly enjoyed our meal. It was my husband and I's first time to the restaurant celebrating my birthday and it was a great choice for the occasion. Our waiter Eric gave us a good run down of options and his favorite ways to pair the meats with sauces. At the end we were given complimentary non alcoholic champagne, as I am expecting, and they noticed we weren't drinking at our table to toast to celebrating the occasion. We will definitely come back and would recommend to anyone looking for a unique way to spend their dinner."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Bill was high (almost $50/plate), but you pay for the experience. Food comes raw, and you cook it to your taste at the table. Choices were good for anybody's taste. Place was dark, so older folks may want to use an LED light of some sort to read the menu. Will come again when I have the money saved up."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I love this place. Foods always great with a romantic like atmosphere. Service is always impeccable."

  • "My girlfriend and I visited The Melting Pot on 2-3-14. Both for the first time. Definitely not for the last time though. This restaurant was phenomenal from the food, to the service, and to the general atmosphere. We'll definitely be back again."
