A word from The Melting Pot - Bellevue
Situated in the hub of Downtown Bellevue, The Melting Pot provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing 4 course experience begins with cheese fondue prepared tableside. Fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood, & vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh, & flavorful. Entrees are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the fun. Your choice of chocolate fondue is the grand finale, served with a variety of delicious dippers. Many have stopped by to satisfy that fondue craving after a movie at Lincoln Center, a day of shopping at Bellevue Square or The Bravern, or a family outing at the park.

We feature an extensive wine list, fresh trendy cocktails, & specialty martinis.

It’s the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, overdue date night, family night, or a group gathering!

Diner Reviews
  • "Food - great! I hadn't had fondue for mega-moons and I wasn't particularly thinking that sticking pieces of bread into hot cheese would be particulary fun or appetizing. But, the setup and presentation was great and the cheeses weren't just Velveeta...and with the oils for the entrees and the chocalate for th dessert...and the foods that went into it all...again, it was great! Service - It is hard to imagine it could have been better."

  • "Had a sceduled reservation called because we were running late and they were very gracious. Had our table ready when we arrived and did not even flinch that we were late. Excellent server, food, and service... Could not have had a better experience anywhere else!"

  • "Hi, I already wrote a "comment" email directly to the Melting Pot, but I received this "feedback request" after. Basically, our burner wasn't working and our food wasn't cooking properly. I understand that happens, but we're not that experienced with fondue and it took us a while to figure that out. I feel our waiter should have checked on us a little more frequently to see how we were doing. Once he dropped off the cheese or the cooking broth, we didn't see much of him As it was, we made it through half our meal (cheese course and half the meat course...struggling with undercooked meat) before we figured out that it wasn't working right. When we were expecting such a great experience, the result left us feeling disappointed"

  • "We came for my birthday dinner and were very disappointed with the food. Our cheese fondue was gritty, bread stale, and the main course was just o.K. The wait staff was nice, and the dessert was great. Needless to say, for $150 we won't be doing the 4 course meal again."

  • "We hadn't been to the Melting Pot in quite a while, and it was the first time for our kids (ages 11, 12). The server was great, explained the menu and service very well. It is a quiet place (Bellevue location), and we were there on a weeknight. As we were eating all courses, the kids kept saying how great it was, that this was the best restaurant ever, and "why haven't we been here before?!?!". Needless to say, dinner (and especially dessert) was a big hit with all of us. We especially loved the "loaded baked potato" cheese fondue appetizer and the S'mores dessert course. Yummm!!! We left in great spirits, with some leftover food, and look forward to coming back again. Thank you!!!"

  • "Cheese fondue was great. Chocolate one probably too, but I got overwhelmed with sweetiness. Maybe more sour fruits would help."

    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I can't say enough about how amazing the food was-- our server was very attentive and made us feel very welcomed. We went with the 4 course meal... We chose cheddar, house salads with the peppercorn ranch, the French quarter and the traditional chocolate with peanut butter... Simply amazing!"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "My husband took me to the Melting Pot for our 7th anniversary. It was the first time for both of us...and it was amazing! We didn't know what to expect going in, so it was quite an experience choosing which fondue cheese, broth, and chocolate to try. It was rather expensive but definitely a great "special occasion" place to dine!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "We had a great meal at the Bellevue location last Sunday evening. The food was delicious. We each had the 4 course meal and thoroughly enjoyed every course. Our server, Devin, was fantastic. He was very friendly and offered suggestions when we were a little undecided on what selections to make. He was also very accommodating when our daughter couldn't decide what flavor lemonade she wanted - he combined them all for her!"

  • "We have been to the melting pot in Bellevue several times and usually enjoy our visit. However, I was really disappointed by the service. My wife and I came here with my parents for my wife's birthday. When asked questions about the menu, the server was rude and condescending. After not really answering our questions, she disappeared for about 15 minutes before coming back to check on us and take our order. After clearing our cheese fondue, she brought out everything to cook our main course but then didn't bring out the meat for another 20 minutes! We tried to get her attention several times but we were ignored. Again, this was uncommon for this location but we will not be coming back because who knows what kind of service we will get."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Cheese fondue, tiny salad, hot pot, chocolate fondue. That's the four course menu. The food is great, but this isn't a watch your waistline menu. The salad was very good and way to small. This is a lot of fun for a special dinner (we were celebrating a birthday) but I wouldn't drop by regularly."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had a lovely table, attentive waitress, and my daughter-in-law's birthday was recognized. It was her first experience. She can't wait to come back for "date night" with her husband, then again with friends."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "They charge a lot, but you get what you pay for, and they turn dining into an event. If you haven't dined here you are truely missing out."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The service staff really dropped the ball this time. We have been several times over the years, to this same location, and for some reason whenever they removed a plate, they would set the fork, or knife or whatever utensil on the table, there were some small plates, 3x3 not sure what they were for, but they could have left those with the fork or whatever placed on it. Then toward the end of dinner they removed the hot fondue pot without placing the protective lid on it.... moving it over my fathers head, not very safe."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The food was terrific, great experience and relaxing dinner, you don't have to rush. I was very full but the food was so flavorful! Thanks"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Always loved fondue style. Took our son here for his 7th birthday, he loved it - it was "fun to cook his own food". I can recommend that when there are children to pick up the pace a little if you can. Kids aren't very patient so between the courses just get things going. It was great though. Only thing, it says "Kids menu upon request" on the menu, however the server said one has NOT been available for five years! For our little 7 year old "bird eater" it was $30, and my adult meal was only $40. His $12 kids plate was no big deal, but to also charge the $8.95/pp for the cheese course (which he didn't touch) and the pp cost for adult dessert was a little outrageous. Maybe for 12 and up, but not young ones :( You lost us there guys"

  • "Very expensive for the quantity and quality of the food. Even with reservations, we were slow to be seated and served."

  • "Was recommended by several friends and completely lived up to my expectations. Food was very good, fun to fondue! Went for a special occasion and was not disappointed."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "This was our first visit to the Melting Pot and we (me and my husband) thoroughly enjoyed it. The food and service was outstanding. Don't expect to get in and out there quickly. The food and ambiance are made to be savored and not rushed. The fondue is not the fondue I remember from the 1970s! Much better and varied. Service was outstanding and friendly. Will definitely return again, but this time won't order so much food -- I was full for a day afterwards!"

  • "OpenTable was great for our Res. We were sat with little wait. The staff was friendly. Our server was knowledgeable. We ordered the valentines special. This menu included a starter, cheese course, meat course with choice of cooking style, chocolate course, and finish with a toast. The food was amazing. However, there were a couple downfalls to our visit. Our server wasn't personable. She was almost like a robot who said "Absolutely." way too much. On top of that we never received our starter. At the end of the chocolate course she brought us the bill, we asked about our complimentary toast since we hadn't received it. She then brought us a bag with two champagne glasses to take home. I'm not sure what happened but it was definitely odd."

  • "My husband and I went here with our 15 month old daughter for Valentine's Day and had such a great time! We were concerned about taking our daughter there and eye very surprised how easy and convenient it was. My daughter enjoyed the food, as did we! Our waitor, David, was so sweet with our daughter as well! Definitely goimg here again!"

  • "Our kids really enjoy this restaurant. We don't have to ask them to eat their fruits and veggies! They love dipping the veggies it in the cheese sauce. And who can resist a pot of warm dark chocolate to dip your strawberries in? As for the main, our four years old loves to eat the salmon with the Teriyaki sauce. Where else can parents take their kids to eat fresh and healthy without much fuss?"

  • "This was my first visit to The Melting Pot, although I'd been aware of it for a while. As a neophyte, I was unsure how the whole thing worked as far as ordering and the options, but it is a very user-friendly place, and the wait staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I chose the 4 course option (appetizer, salad, entree and dessert). There are several options, both for the cheese fondue used for the appetizer, the spices and oils used for the entree, and the chocolate for the dessert. My date and I were both very happy with the choices we made, and I assume that any of the other options would likely be equally tasty. I will come back to The Melting Pot again!"
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "I have been going to the Melting Pot for several years and every time is go it seems like the price stays the same or goes up, but the portion size and quality of food goes down. Every time I go, which is around 1-2 times per year I leave thinking " it's not as good as it used to be!" That should be your first thought as you leave a restaurant spending $150 or more on a meal!!!!!"
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "My first time here after hearing about it for years. Cheese fondue was delicous! Salad good & entree, French Quarter, was tasty! The best was the dark chocolate & Baileys fondue! Whole experience was fun but would make it an occasional place to visit on special occasions!"

  • "This is the third year I have taken my now 10 year old grandson to the Melting Pot. He loves the dipping of a wide variety of goodies into the steaming chocolate. We celebrate both of our January birthdays with the decadent but delicious chocolate fondue. We will be there again next year. Pricy but very special."

  • "We have eaten at the MP many times, with the experience excellent! However, our last visit was not so great? they were short staffed, which made the service somewhat slow. Our waitress, (tatooes down her arms) was exceptional; she kept or tried to keep up with the demands of the peoples demands. The food, mainly the steak, was tough, didn't taste like tenderloin or filet. The portions seemed to be smaller in size to the last time we dined there? You folks charge a pretty penny for entrees, so you should make it worth the dining! It will be a while before we return."

  • "My children love to eat at the Melting Pot. They love cooking their own steak, chicken and ravioli. They think fruit dipped in chocolate for dessert is the greatest! The Melting Pot is a kid friendly place but just know that a 3 course meal is a 2 hour commitment."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "We were a little hesitant to take our 5-year-old, but were pleased to find that they have a "kid's plate" to sample beef, chicken, shrimp and pasta, and were accommodating about up-sizing courses. He handled the raw meat and hot plate like a pro. Our waiter was energetic and engaging, made us feel comfortable and made helpful suggestions. Only downside was that parking was an issue; we parked under a nearby building and it was a little complicated to get our car out."
