  • "We had a lovely evening. Nicole, our server was very friendly and helpful. We'll be back!"

  • "We had a celebration night and it was great. The food was excellent , cocktails were great. The only advice I have is the serving staff should check IDS on the younger looking customers, our son who looks younger than he is( he is 22) was not carded when he ordered a cocktail. 0"

  • "Took my family out for my son's 14th birthday. Didn't know what to expect and looking at the menus online seemed a little confusing. We watched a couple of YouTube videos and it made a little more sense. Our Waiter Joel was fabulous. He explained everything about the menus and had us laughing through the night. My kids had fun "cooking" their own food and dipping all the goodies in chocolate for dessert. Overall it was a great experience."

  • "The melting pot always gets better! This makes a wonderful special occasion place. The waiter was very friendly and when I told him it was my birthday, they brought out chocolate and candles! Food is fantastic. Drinks are yummy. Even for my boyfriend who didn't like to wait to eat, he enjoyed it!"

  • "Our server Michall was wonderful. He was knowledgeable & friendly. He set us up with everything we needed to enjoy ourselves thoroughly. If you've never been to a Melting Pot, understand that you cook your own food in a fondue pot on your table, which takes some time. We loved the idea of a meal out where you are forced to slow down & have time to 'visit' with your dinner companion. I took my Mom to celebrate Mother's Day, which we were unable to do on Mother's Day because my Mom was out of state. The atmosphere was perfect for us to catch up. The average meal is four courses and takes a minimum of two hours. This enabled me to have some much needed quality time with her. I will definitely be going back here again. Great food, service & fun"

  • "The Melting Pot is a great place to go when you want to experience a real night out. It is like getting a show and a meal all in one. From the manager giving us their specials and wine list to our absolutely hospitable server "James", our experience was unparalleled. James' knowledge of the menu was note worthy and his recommendations were terrific. The food was delectable as always and drinks were perfectly poured. I love The Melting Pot and will continue to go back!!"

  • "I typically find The Melting Pot pricey but every time Restaurant Week in Bethlehem rolls around I find myself craving the cheese & chocolate. Went with 3 friends, 2 which had never done fondue before and we had a blast! I would recommend it for something fun to do on date night with your bff or significant other."

  • "We dined here to enjoy fondue and they certainly provided. We chose a 4 course plan which started with your choice of cheese fondue, salad, main dish, and CHOCOLATE! There was only 1 pot per table so you need to all agree on the cheese, cooking style of the main dish, and dessert. Everything was enjoyable. Portions are small on the meats and it was pretty expensive. This is a nice place to go when you aren't starving and want to your meal to be an experience."

  • "My wife and I have been to a few different Melting Pot restaurants and we have discovered that Bethlehem has the best service. We recently took my mother and her husband there (which was their first time), and they absolutely loved it! In fact, she is planning to go back for her birthday with my sister who has also never been there. I highly recommend the Bethlehem Melting Pot location! Great food, great service, and for a 4-course meal, not a bad price."

  • "Each of our high school age kids request dinner at The Melting Pot for their birthday every year. It's been a tradition for the last 5+ years. Even though this restaurant is 45 minutes from our home it is very much worth the drive. The food is always terrific, the servers are very pleasant and helpful and the ambiance is great. Our service was uncharacteristically a bit slow this past visit - I think he had too many tables, too far from the kitchen, but still, it was a great dinner and a wonderful experience. I highly recommend The Melting Pot in Bethlehem for a great dinner experience for a romantic twosome or an adventurous family!"

  • "My wife and I recently celebrated our 5th Wedding Anniversary at the Melting Pot in Bethlehem. We had been there before so we knew what to expect. Our waiter was very nice and knew the menu very well. He came back many times to check on us and to see if we needed any additional food or drinks. It was very romantic dipping and cooking our food together at the table. Thanks Melting Pot for a great evening."

  • "We occasionally go to The Melting Pot throughout the year. This is the second location we've been to and neither one of them leave us disappointed. The food is amazing, but at the Bethlehem location I felt welcomed by all of the staff, from the waitress to the bus boys to the management. Everyone that came to our table was very friendly. "

  • "I made online reservations and just mentioned we were coming for our anniversary. They went out of their way to seat us in lovers lane without me even requesting it. We loved it. Very private, can adjust your own lighting and a very romantic atmosphere. Our waitress, Nicole, even gave us a plate with happy anniversary written in chocolate. It was a very nice surprise. We were 100% satisfied. "

  • "I took my fiance to the melting pot for our three year anniversary and requested the anniversary package. The reservations were easy to make on their website just two days before. The table was set with roses and champagne glasses when we arrived, and we really liked how private the lovers lane seating was, and that we could adjust the over head lighting ourselves. The food was amazing and it was fun cooking the entrees ourselves. Just wish they would serve more vegetables with the entree. We only got a tiny bowl of veggies to share between us so it was equivalent to two veggies a piece. But overall the food was amazing, service was great, and I was really impressed that we met two managers while we were seated. They brought us our check. "

  • "Took my wife here for our anniversary and told them about it in the reservations, they gave a nice personalized message for us on a dessert dish, was awesome! All course we enjoyed, Terraki steak was my favorite by far (had chicken, filet,pork also). Desset is amazing. Can't forget the ceasar salad which was very good, had some pine nuts that give a nice contrasting taste with salad."

  • "This place is a fun, unique way to dine. Never ate at a fondue place before but the melting pot has great food and Rob was an excellent server. We had a great time, weren't rushed and since it was Memorial Day weekend and I served in Vietnam, at the end of our meal they presented me with a box of chocolate covered strawberries which was unexpected. This place is real class."
