Not crazy about the entree fondue though. Salad is also tasty.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary Dinner!Perfect place for a long leisurely romantic dinner.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish and great service fromDelish and great service from the moment i walked in, through the entire meal. They had nice variety of fondues; different than I've tasted before... Including a variety dessert fondues. Yum!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMchocolate loverMy girlfriend and I went for dessert after dinner at another restaurant. We had eaten dinner at The Melting Pot previously and it was delicious. The dessert was decadent and offers many choices of chocolate fondues. We had the milk chocolate and the array of dippers is great. The rick krispies and marshmallows were light and delicious. The fruit was juicy and sweet. The waitress was very courteous and gave great directions for the dippers. Wonderful end to our dinner.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBring an appetite and a group!The food was terrific and the service was top-notch. Our server was engaging and humorous to just the right level and pitch, and was present enough that we never wanted for anything, and not overly attentive so as to distract from enjoying our friends' company.
Bring an appetite! The small bits and bites mask a large aggregate amount of food, and you want to pace yourself so there is room for dessert. Also, sometimes, places with a theme (like fondue) have more style than substance...not the case here. Food and prep was of high quality.
Go with friends, or a another couple, plan to sit and enjoy for awhile.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall great experience.Overall great experience. My friends and I ordered the 4 course option. When it came time for the chocolate fondue desser, the waitress seemed (to me) annoyed that I asked for an extra chocolate fondue; I understood perfectly that I would have to pay extra. I got the impression she did not want to bring the extra (but maybe I misunderstood her body language).5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a unique experience!Such a unique experience! Sammy, our waitress, was excellent!!!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentPerfect for our date nights out. We love dining at The Melting Pot in the Back Bay. We always get great service and enjoy our time there.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt brough me back to the 70s!!!One of my fondest memories as a kid was when my parents broke their fondue set. This was a quirky fad back then, but it was fun and I remember the food was really really good! I took my daughters for a special occasion (Birthday Celebration) and this place did not disappoint. Our server (Megan) was very attentive and engaging. We ordered the 4 course meal - Cheese fondue / Salad / Entree fondue / Chocolate fondue.
Only minor complaint was that we ran out of chocolate fondue too soon.... Oh well, we were very satisfied by that point and did not need to push our food intake limits any further.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night of diningAlways enjoy the melting pot. A little pricey, but plenty of food. Ask for extra vegetables if you like veggies.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was okay to me butThe food was okay to me but my girlfriend absolutely loved it. It's just not my thing, doesn't mean it's bad! Our server (Marianna I think was her name) was an absolute sweetheart.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience!Took our adult daughter here for her birthday. Had a wonderful experience. The food was the best. The atmosphere was great. It was a lot of fun watching the waitress make the cheese fondue sauce and seeing all the different sauces for the main entree. Dessert was to die for.
Can't wait to do it again!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time experienceI always want to try this restaurant because of the fondue. I think it is something special food which worthy to try at least once. Overall everything was great, it was a good thing to try once because i don't think it is something that you have eat all the time consider the cheese and the chocolate are both very heavy food. As a person who always has healthy diet, I prefer lighter food. The waitress was friendly but that was her 4th day of working there, she might be a little nervous. She dropped the sauce on my sister's jacket whiling she was introducing the sauces. And she didn't clean up the table before she bring up the birthday cake to my sister. But I do appreciated her patients and explain everything on the menu very detail.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI just have to say that wasI just have to say that was one of the best times I had dining out, me and my wife had a great time thanks a bunch4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis a great place for a specialThis a great place for a special occasion.

We had a blast.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply the Best!We couldn't have had a better birthday celebration experience! The service was top-notch and the food was delicious! I don't think I could ever eat at a non-interactive restaurant again! The time flew by as we were able to relax in between courses with plenty of conversation to go around! I recommend this Melting Pot in Back Bay, in particular, to everyone. The waitstaff was fantastic! A definite 10 from all of us for the Melting Pot!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for my best friends birthdayWent for my best friends birthday with another friend and my girlfriend and LOVED it! Our waiter was with us as soon as we were seated and got us started on our drinks immediately. We all ordered the 4-course experience (pacific rim for me and my gf) and thoroughly enjoyed the food. The cooking times they advised were a bit off, but we just left ours in the pot a little while longer. For desert we had the milk chocolate and grand marnier and actually received a nice little buzz from it. Everyone eating was very respectful of the quiet/dimmed setting and the service was impeccable. Would definitely recommend both for a private outing with a significant other or with a few friends. A+3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLow Budget at High-EndI've been to the Melting Pot before in Minneapolis. And as I loved it there I loved the reataurant in Boton too. My friend from Austria was here and we decided to have light dinner (just some cheese fondue and chocolate fondue as dessert) at the bar. That means you can save a lot of money because in the happy hour there is -50% off at the bar. Since we are both students and a high-end restaurant like the Melting Pot would normally not be in our budget, it was perfect for us. We had a great time there, stuff was friendly and very fast, and the food was of course wonderful and something very extraordinary. Highly recommendable to everyone, also people who don't want to spend so much money since there is the Happy Hour option.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDessertThe dessert was so good. I will be going back for just dessert next time.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was our first time andIt was our first time and the experience was amazing the food, and service were perfect. The AGM came by the table many time, to check and assisting the server. A great night and my highest recommendation!3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had such a nice time atWe had such a nice time at the Melting Pot this last Saturday. The food was good, just enough seasoning. Our waiter Conor was very helpful in our decision making. All in all a good time!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat DinnerIt is an absolutely fun place to go to for fun with friends or on a nice romantic date. In a great location for Boston nightlife.
