Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I had a "date" night at the Melting Pot and enjoyed it immensely. I had been once before for lunch, but this was my husband's first experience there. We thoroughly enjoyed everything and our waiter was very nice (although he seemed a little new or nervous at times). It's not a cheap date, but is definitely high on our list of places for a special occasion."

  • "My girlfriend and I always enjoy a chance to return to Melting Pot. This was our 5th time together and probably the best to date. Food was amazing, we ordered the big night out. It was for her birthday and they brought her a little birthday plate during the dessert round as well. Great staff, amazing food. Definitely worth the drive from Toronto, Canada!"

  • "We ordered the special today Adam beer special. She only bring us one beer . We supposed to get 3 beers during the four courses of this special. We have to keep calling her to twice to bring us beers."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our Silver wedding anniversary at this location. Never had fondue before and decided to try a 3 and 4 course experience each. Great choice, plenty of food and tasty. Service is impeccable and the waitress, Mallory even brought us some champagne and dessert treats for our celebration. A memorable time indeed. Perhaps, the lighting can be improved a bit as our photos did not show too well ..."

  • "A group of twelve of us enjoyed an amazing night out last Saturday. Our server worked hard to ensure we enjoyed our meals and had everything we needed. She even came out with a plate decorated with "School's Out For Summer" since we were celebrating the end of the school year. Very pleasant atmosphere---thankfully, we were in the private dining area because, well---we had came to enjoy each other's company as much as the food. The quality of "dippers"--meats, breads, veggies, and dessert items, were excellent---as were salads. The fondue itself---wonderful. I would definitely recommend this to anyone for a fun evening."

  • "We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and brought our 7 yr old son. Everyone from the hostess to the manager and our server Danielle W congratulated us. We were given a hand written anniversary card and plate with our dessert saying happy anniversary in strawberry sauce, along with choc covered strawberries and champagne toast. While we have been to melting pot many times this was our first time taking our son and we were pleased with his overall experience. I have not been this impressed in years from any restaurant!"

  • "I think there should be more dippers given with the fondue, especially with the chocolate. Also, college night definitely should continue that was the first time I was able to afford great food during a stressful week! Keep that up!"

  • "Excellent food and a very well trained staff make the Melting Pot a restaurant you must try when at the Walden Galleria. We loved the food and the staff really make you feel welcome. I have never been there when the manager has not checked on whether we were happy with the food and service. I wish they would open one in the west end of the greater Toronto area. Mississauga or Brampton would be great!"

  • "Although the food tasted great, we had to wait 40 minutes between each course. The area was so secluded that I think the waiter forgot we were there. The next day we found out an employee scammed an extra $20 off what was authorized on our credit card receipt. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I went here for a Mom's Night Out with some friends. We had a great time, and the food was very good. The best part was that the meal comes in courses, and each course takes some time to prepare and then eat. It was a relaxing and slow paced meal. This is not someplace to go for a "quick bite", but rather a time to enjoy the company of those you are with and have fun with food at the same time. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We celebrated out daughters' birthdays at The Melting Pot. What a great experience! Our server, Alicia, went out of her way to make our dining experience memorable. The food was delicious and the fact that we ate slower (as we had to wait for some food to cook) let us enjoy each others company. We could highly recommend The Melting Pot for a fun and elegant dining experience!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Enjoyed as usual, but a bit disappointed that they didn't have the cheese fondue with the salsa, the salad that had the iceberg lettuce cut in half with dressing poured over it (they used to have it that way), and the peanut butter chocolate fondue. It was still good, but have had a better experience in the past. Also disappointed that you don't serve cheesecake anymore with the dessert fondue."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary. We had the full four course menu which made for a nice, leisurely evening with plenty of time for talking without the kids. Our server even brought out two glasses of champagne on the house with our dessert course. Including a flight of wine and tip, the evening came out to around $120."

  • "My husband and I normally go to the Melting Pot in Towson, MD, but tried out the Buffalo location while on our honeymoon. We really enjoyed seeing the offerings at the Buffalo location that were different from the Towson location. This restaurant is full of private niches, which we really appreciated! Our server was very sweet and friendly, making sure that we were taken care of without feeling rushed. We were given complimentary glasses of champagne, and our server made a little plate with a heart-shaped krispy treat and "congratulations" written in chocolate. We couldn't have asked for a better night! "

  • "Love the Melting Pot. Always have great food and a great time. Prices are a little high, but it's the experience you pay for. Really enjoyed having my Easter brunch there this year.. hope to do it every year. Only thing that could be improved was if the waiter came around more. Wanted more of an item, but never received."

  • "We made birthday reservations for a friend, who never had the experience of the Melting Pot, and she truly enjoyed it. The waiter was amazing with explaining everything to her and when he brought out the chocolate fondue, he wrote in caramel "Happy Birthday" and had a candle lit. I wish I remember his name but I have never had a bad experience there. Thank you."

  • "The meal started out ok- it was our first time there so the process was explained and we ordered. The waitress made the cheese and wasn't very sociable.. It was kind of awkward. Once the main course started we did not see our server for almost an hour- she never stopped by to see if we needed more veggies or sauce and my drink was not refilled during the entire entree course. There was probay a 30 min wait between when we finished out entree and when we got dessert. Once the check came we had been there for over 2 and a half hours.. Then it took 15 min for the waitress to come back to get our card to pay. Overall the service was super dissapointing. For a meal that costs close to $100 for a couple I was expecting a better experience. "

  • "I went on my birthday with my family, kids are 12 & 16 and we all had a great time. Food was fantastic and was so much fun sharing and enjoying some quality family time. Wine was delicious and cooking was so much fun to do together. Going to try the tuesday specials with the friends soon and our server was amazing. Thank you Rob and the entire staff. Also had a birthday card at the table for me. "

  • "The waiter was inattentive. The fondue was cold. The waiter was assuming for a tip even after bad service. I sent a review to the restaurant directly and have yet to get a response. The restaurant was not good on this visit but maybe in another 8-12 months I will give it another try."

  • "I've been to the Melting Pot a couple times before and this was my first time at the Buffalo Location. The surrounding area is beautiful and parking was a breeze. We were seated perfectly. Despite being there before, I needed a refresher on what to order for the table. Our server Lyndsey was awesome as well!"
