The Melting Pot - Brea
Mother's DayMelting Pot is my mom's favorite place. We only go on special occasions because it keeps it in that category. Service was outstanding, food is always on point and portion size always leaves leftovers.
For Mother's Day the restaurant gave moms a complementary Bellini and a reusable shopping bag. I found the gift to be an interesting choice, but perfect for my mom. The bag had a tomato on it and was more garden themed, which was fitting.
Overall, a great time with family and left me with a happy mother on her special day and some wonderful memories.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time for kidsWe went to Melting Pot on Mothers Day with my children for the first time. They enjoyed that they could cook there own food. The server we his name was Matt was very nice and knew his stuff. Was good with helping the kids out with what they would like to eat.
We had a great time able to talk while cooking our food as a family. Will be back for sure in the future.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDont go on HolidaysThis restaurant is a lot of fun for groups. But I would not recommend that you go for special occasions because they did not have the normal menu forcing us to eat the ones that we do not enjoy as much for significantly more money. We did have a great waiter and the owner came out and greeted us and was really nice. The wait was not to bad with our reservation and the facility was clean. There is not a lot of handicap parking in the area, so you may need to drop off handicapped people before you park. In summary... we had a great experience but it would have been much more enjoyable If we could have selected our food.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!My first time here to celebrate my 30th! The service was great; our server was awesome! I can't remember her name :(( we were a group of 8 first-timers and she was really out-going and patient with us. The food was really good! I ordered the 2 entrees w the lobster tale and the portions aren't huge, but it does the trick. I also had the Fiesta cheese. So good!! The dessert (the turtle And I forgot what else) was good! Sweet, obviously, so I didn't eat tooth of it. The portion is big, you can definitely share that. Def give this place a try!! Enjoy!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMCozy and intimateGreat place to take your date for a romantic dinner5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun DinningWonderful time, excellent service, and very tasty food! This was my first time for dinner and I was very pleasantly surprised! Will definitely go back!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMtime to spendwe sat in patio...nice atmosphere. Waiter was very busy...so it felt like it took extra long while waiting for our main entrees. Pleasantly surprised that the food is raw when brought to the table. Alas, the melting pot is what u cook everything in. Lots of neat sauces for dipping. However, all of the food kinda tasted the same after cooking it in the pot. the whole dinner lasts about 2 hrs. Hard for smaller kids to stay behaved....great activities on the kids menu though.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date night.We had a great time. We took our pardnts to try something new.

At Open Table when making my reservation, I mentioned the birthday and also asked for an accessible table. When we arrived, we were seated right away at the nearest table. There was a birthday card for him placed there, and later the owner came by to speak with us. He also brought a little "newspaper" that discussed the important events going on the day my father was born. All of these little touches made for a special birthday for him. The food was also excellent, and our server was very patient and did not rush us whatsoever. Great place for a special event!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my first time at aIt was my first time at a Melting Pot restaurant, and it far surpassed our expections.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
