The Melting Pot - Bellevue
Wonderful!We had a great dinner. The food was awesome... Perfect pairings and out of this world taste! The bar is small, but that was the only shortfall.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily TimeOur 3 adult children were home from out of town. Perfect place for dinner and catching up!!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerWe took a large group (9) for dinner and ended up in a private room! This really helped with the overall noise level. Service was great and energetic, the food was very good and most importantly, we had a blast!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMConfusing MenuEvery time we go to The Melting Pot, we have to ask the waiter to explain the menu and even then, it's confusing. It's pretty pricey! We ordered individual dishes and that was WAY too expensive. It's cheaper to do the 4-course dinner (but that's pricey too). For us, it's going to be a "special" occasion dinner.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA memorable experience!Outstanding service, amazing food, and a comfortable, friendly environment! This was my first time at The Melting Pot and the 4-course meal was nothing short of a taste-bud adventure!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experience especiallygreat experience especially the desert. Friendly and helpful service and the food was good.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMReviewI have been going to the Melting Pot since I first discovered it in Florida (in the early 1990s) and have never had a bad experience!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery goodTook my wife here for our anniversary. We both couldn't have been happier with the decision. The service was great and so was the food. Highly recommended.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial location for 18th birthdayI arranged for my daughter and friends to celebrate at the Bellevue location for her birthday. She was absolutely thrilled with the food and the experience, and she said that their server, Erin, was "awesome." I liked that the Grads Eat Free in June made it reasonable! A total win.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFun experience and good foodWe had a fantastic waiter who was super friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and fun to dip everything!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the waitWe had a 7:00 reservation for 2; our monthly date night. It ended up being a little longer wait for our table so we went to the bar to have a drink. The bartender was really nice, was busy with other tables and let us know he had seen us and would be with us shortly. Per our wait he paid for my boyfriends shot. Around 7:30 they sat us, our bartender ended up being our waiter, which we very much enjoyed. We had a wonderful meal, dessert came and we were in a hurry to meet up with some friends so we asked for the bill, when it came we were given all of our drinks complementary and given a bottle of champagne to take home. Amazing customer service and will definitily be coming back for that amazing dessert!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMImproved!This was the first time we had been to the Melting Pot since they made changes to how you are served your food. I have to say, the changes (individual plates, etc) make a world of difference. I was never very excited about the food, but this time it was great. The service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about all of the choices.
My one negative would be that they were out of two things that we wanted to order. Perhaps the holiday weekend wiped them out of those items.
Overall, we had a great dinner.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAll about the service.We had a server named Erin and she was the best ever. She did everything we asked for her in a timely manner and with a smile.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Nice!I have never been to the Melting Pot location in Bellevue. I was very excited to see this location and i was not disappointed. So glad we made reservations, we were whisked off to our table and our server was prompt. They have recently made some changes to the their menu and after getting the lay of the land, we placed our order. The spinach and artichoke cheese fondue was amazing and my adult beverage hit the spot. Our server recognized all of our cues, when to refresh the water, we to offer more bread for dipping and doubling up on the strawberries for our dessert course. She even offered to have their signature yin and yang chocolate fondue changed to white and milk chocolate, instead of the dark and white. Such a wonderful experience!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthdayI took my boyfriend whose never been to the melting pot and he was stuffed which is hard for a fighter fighter like him. Food was great as always but I'm dissapointed that there was no special if u did the 4 course because 140.00 is a lot when u get 3 chunks of different meats just seamed the pricing was ridiculous for chunks of meat that were not big at all. And I also asked for the birthday plate and I was told it would have a cheese cake slice with it but all it was, was a plate with 2 strawberries that said happy birthday dissapointed to say the least on that. Overall tho great time and great food.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DateThis was my first time to The Melting Pot. I was impressed. The food was delicious. We ordered the four course meal which may have been a little too much. We were overstuffed when leaving for the night, but we wanted to try it all. I was not disappointed by any course. The atmosphere was great and the service was too. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place for a date. If you're looking to get stuffed, that works too.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for special occasions!This is a comfortable restaurant for any occasion. Just make sure you have lots of time and money.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEver heard of Fondue? No?!Melting Pot is a great place for a mid-expensive date. Dinner is an experience, not just food. The restaurant is low light and pretty quiet, talking is easy. Decent selection of wine.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary CelebrationMy husband and I went here on our first date 10 years ago and decided we would celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary here. We had an amazing time! I ordered a special package~ had roses at the table as well as Champagne and Flutes (which were ours to keep). Our waitress was so amazing and we felt well taken care of! It was a beautiful evening and I was impressed by how well everyone treated us when we were the last to leave the restaurant.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was very friendly,Our server was very friendly, energetic and had just the right amount of interaction with us. The food was fun and made for a different group experience. I wish the smaller tables allowed for two different cooking styles. We had one burner but half our table was vegetarian and the other half was not. Also, the steam from the fondou pots as it warmed up sometimes had a chemical kind of smell steaming in our faces. Not sure if that can be changed. Overall, we had a fun time and enjoyed ourselves. The points above would be my only negative comments.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had never been before,We had never been before, and the whole experience was great. It is a little pricy for us to eat at for anything other than a special occasion, so we went for our anniversary. Definitely need a reservation... we had one and were seated immediately. We the service was excellent and all our questions were answered. The food was great (we loved the cheese and dessert courses!) And at the end of the meal, our waitress brought us some chocolate covered strawberries to take home as an anniversary gift!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server I think her nameOur server I think her name was Jennelle (sp)? was AWESOME. She was very helpful & really knows the menu. The food was AWESOME. Great job.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectDelicious food and fantastic service; couldn't ask for anything more.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMax Fun...Great ExperienceWe took my wife's 92 year old parents with us and they had a great time. The food and service were outstanding, although a bit pricey. This is a very unique dining experience! Our only complaint is that the parking situation is not very good.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love it here. Great forWe love it here. Great for families participation and get together.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPrices have changed, and notPrices have changed, and not for the better. While it's still a great time, good food, and nice environment, it's value is not the same with the new higher prices. We used to go on a regular basis, but I think we'll be looking for more dining options now.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Can't wait to go back.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent all around, butExcellent all around, but a bit noisy - that can be expected for downtown Bellevue though. All the courses are delicious, so many options to choose from. You can order one of their 4 course packages, or you can order specific items a la carte. They recently expanded their menu, the entree section has much more meat/combination options now. I have not tried to order a la carte yet but it looks like a good option, especially during their late night happy hour. Complimentary parking, easy to find, we will be back again!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTastyWe went for the Seattle Restaurant week, and started with a ceasar and house salad (both delicious) and chose the 'Land and Sea' and 'Signature Selection' entrees, followed with the milk chocolate dessert. The food portions seemed small initially, but we both left full and satisfied. The teriyaki beef was by far my favorite and I would recommend to anyone who likes teriyaki. The dark brown "coated" marshmallow in the milk chocolate fondue was amazing, on my top 10 desserts I've ever had. It's pricey, but a nice variance from the norm. Would recommend.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!Excellent food as always. LOved the new menu. My wife ordered an a la carte meal and I ordered a four course and it was plenty of food as we split the app, salad, and dessert.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress, Amanda, wasOur waitress, Amanda, was particularly knowledgeable and helpful. She's only been with you for about six or seven months, but was extremely knowledgeable about your food and wine and was most personable and friendly. We enjoyed our experience at The Melting Pot in particular because of her.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for fondue not the entrées.Go for fondue not the entrées. The entrées are pricy and small servings. But the cheese and chocolate fondue is incredible. Ambience is nice too, very classy haha.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to takeThis is a great place to take your family. Our kids, ages 12 & 14 love this restaurant!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good and remarkably consistentWhat can you say? The melting pot is remarkably consistent. Very good food every time. Not a lot of variety. No cutting edge foodie food. But good food. Interesting food, consistently prepared and delivered in a fun way that can be romantic, or fun for the whole family. We go there to celebrate family birthdays...and we never walk away disappointed,3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMelting Pot is our familyMelting Pot is our family "Birthday" dinner tradition. Loved the new menu!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
