    I was looking for a nice restaurant where my wife and I could celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We chose the Melting Pot at the suggestion of our Daughter. I couldn't be happier with our choice. The atmosphere was fantastic, my daughter upgraded our reservation to an anniversity package. This package gave access to "Lovers Lane" an intimate setting, a champagne toast(we keep the glasses), a box of chocolate dipped strawberries and a framed picture. Unfortunately the camera was not working that evening. One of the Lady managers ran out to a local florist and left a half dozen salmon colored roses at our table. Our experience was fantastic, customer service above and beyond, staff friendly & professional, impeccable restaurant.

    My fiance and I went out for a date night recently and I surprised her by going to the Melting Pot in Bethlehem, PA. We were never here before. The side of the resturant is ample and fit for couples, small groups, and even large groups. Our servers were very attentive and friendly. They explained how the experience worked and assisted us with the menu. The food was amazing. The flavors were extremely "potent" and I felt like we had plenty of food. Dessert was pretty much "to die for" as well. The whole meal took about two hours from start to finish. We also were seated in their "lover's lane" section which had controllable lighting and corner-style tables for closeness to the one you care about. We will certainly come back!

    The food is so delicious. Every course. No matter what style you pick it will taste amazing. Cooking each bite at a time is tedious but it is well worth it. The dipping sauces are terrific. Get the lover's lane seating if you are taking that special someone. The staff will do anything to make sure you have a perfect date. The price is fair for the quality of food, service, and ambiance.

    Service was slower than usual, but they may have been busy or short-handed. The dipper options for desserts have changed...pineapple and blondies have been added, but cheesecake has been removed. :( Tried the white-chocolate and peaches dessert chocolate, which was quite good. Also the Yin-Yang Martini, which is pricey, but is basically a milkshake - order a virgin version if you just want the ice cream.

    We were here to celebrate a special occasion. The package I ordered was not available, however the manager made up a gift package and removed the cost of the original package. That was very professional and well handled. The only challenge we had was that our server was not around very much. He forgot some of our food. We were almost finished eating before we saw him again to get the missing dish. We requested water refills, but he forgot them too. Dessert was served, but we had no forks. It was very frustrating because no one was around when we needed them.

    My wife chose this for her birthday. We were led to a very private table at "Lovers Lane" in a secluded spot in the restaurant. The hostess addressed us politely,asking if this was a special occasion. The waiter was extremely cordial and knowledgeable about the menu. We were promised that there would be no rush. We chose a four course dinner, and the entire meal was definitely set at our speed. The waiter was extremely attentive but not annoying. The manager also visited twice, very courteous. At the dessert course, my wife received a special Happy Birthday plate. Upon leaving, the hostess wished my wife Happy Birthday using her first name, a nice personal touch. Our experience was over 3 hours long. Definitely memorable and special.

    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.

    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!!

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.
