    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/24/2014
    I drove down from Port st Lucie fort daughters 15th bday. They had the table set up and she was very surprised and happy. The front was very accommodating as I had to call and push the time back twice. I used to eat there a lot when I lived closer and I felt the portion sizes were bigger but other than that it was awesome. I used to work at another melting pot location and I remember having to explain and be very interactive. The server was good, he just could have been better. But I'm in the industry so I'm very perticular.

    We have been to other Melting Pots but this one is far superior! Service was superb. The cheese fondues and salads were delicious. If you like cheese with a little kick then the fiesta is for you! The mozzarella and strawberry salad was a pleasant change from an ordinary house salad. What can I say about chocolate fondue? AWESOME!!!

    We went here for our anniversary on a tues night (6:30 PM reservation). We were pleasantly surprised at the number of people dining and there was an overall lively and happy atmosphere. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive, paying special attention to us for our anniversary. I'm not a big fan of fondue food but the melting pot does a great job with it and it's a lot of fun.

    We had a wonderful experience at the Boca Melting Pot! From the hostess, to the server, to the manager, everyone was extremely friendly and accomodating. Every request was answered with a smile and suggestions were made. The manager stopped by our table a couple of times to ensure everything was going well and to answer questions. Of course, the food was delicious!!! If I lived closer to this location, I would visit it everytime I wanted a MP experience. Each time I'm in Boca, I will make sure to visit.

    Our waitress, did not explain the pricing for the desserts. She asked if we wanted the small dessert for 2. Well, that meant we were than charged for 2 desserts. In the past , we were never charged for additional mushrooms. This time it was on the bill, but already deducted, as a promotional item. That means in the future we will not have enough mushrooms. I won't pay 5.95 per request, per order. I was not pleased with the quick talking of our waitress style.

    We have been going to the Melting Pot for as long as I can remember. It was always a great place to do something different. This time it was much different and not in a good way. I don't know if there has been a management or owner change but it was not the friendly welcome atmosphere we have come to love. It has always been on the pricy side but that was fine because you get what you pay for. This time the portions were very small but still as much fun and delicious as always. Maybe it is just time to try one of the other locations.

    My husband and I went to this wonderful restaurant recently for his birthday. We had driven past this place at least a thousand times. We finally went. It is out of this world. Food is fabulous, service impeccable. Our server Lawrence was professional, friendly and very helpful with the menu. He could give lessons to other restaurant workers! This was perhaps the best dining experiences that I have had in years. My husband and I enjoyed every dish, we will be returning

    We go every year when we visit my parents, and our son loves Melting Pot. The service, as always, was outstanding. In fact, it's hard to get much better as I don't know what I'd change. The food was good -- and fun, too, an important element -- except that the chicken we had was a little off in flavor and texture. Not sure what it was but I'm sure it was just an anomaly. The place is noisy but that's because most people are having fun; it's also cool when you first walk in because of the heat generated from the fondue pots...I would recommend that women/anyone who chills easily brings a sweater along to start.

    My son and I had a very nice experience at the Boca Raton location. The waiter was very attentive, the food was good and plentiful and we had fun cooking the food. This is a great place to take young people for a special occasion. We did share everything (appetizer, dinner, and dessert) with drinks and the bill was $55.00. The manager came by to make sure we were happy and we will definitely be back.
