Diner Reviews
  • "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!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Had a nice time. Service was fantastic!! We both ordered the classic (4 course). While we ate it all, it was actually...too much food. Next time, we'd probably order just 1 classic and split it. Also thought about going back and having just the cheese and the desert. The main course (meats) was good enough, but nothing to rave about. The meat is served raw and was plated very nicely when they brought it out. The cheese and desert was great. It was an expensive visit: $100 even and we didn't have alcohol. Toss in a $20 tip and that's a lot of coin for a dinner. We saved for it, so it didn't hurt, but we couldn't eat like this often at that price tag. Good first visit...we'll be back."

  • "I've been to the Melting Pot several times since it opened, probably 10+ times. It is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the concept of fondue cooking at your table. I love the quiet seats for 2 back in "lovers lane". The food is always fresh and top quality. But this time though I was disheartened to find smaller salad portions, they were out of Teriyaki sirloin and cheesecake is no longer offered with dessert. Hopefully next time will be a better experience!"

  • "This was our first experience at the Melting Pot and I must say that I was extremely pleased! The service was top notch, Carly our server was fantastic and knowledgeable! It was my wife's birthday so I wanted an extraordinary experience and got one. Nice to see that table presence is still being practiced by managers as well, he came to the table and offered suggestions for pairings and was genuinely concerned about our visit. The food was very tasty but never having been there I wasn't sure what to expect, and oh by the way dessert was to die for...Kudos to the staff for a job well done."

  • "We had a great night. We were celebrating my birthday - two adults, one 15 and one 10 year old. They loved it and enjoyed cooking their food. Service is top notch. The staff are happy, very accommodating and appear to love their job. It might appear to be a little expensive but the price has to be a little higher as their table turnover is less since you are cooking your own food. We were there for two hours."

  • "After the dinner was served my waitress was never to be seen again ... No refill no are you ok it was terrible ... After she served the desert we wanted to order more desert but yet again no where to be found.... There was 20 min or more where she didn't even pick up and swipe my card . Never will go there again for 100$ I'll go some where else"

  • "This is truly a new kind of dinning experience. There is nothing like it. It was a lot of fun to first dip things in cheese and then to cook your dinner yourself. You definetly don't need to work about sending your food back if it's not cooked right. I would definetly go back."

  • "I want to start by telling you our server was great. After finding out that I need to not eat gluten this was our first outing at a restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Dani was her name and she was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and helped my husband and I through ordering and how to cook the food in the correct order so that I was not getting the gluten from my husbands food. We had a nice quiet spot in the back however I do have one suggestion...the lighting in the back area is not sufficient to read the menu we had to use our phone for a light to be able to read the menu. Other than that is was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back."

  • "My wife and I went to Buffalo for an anniversary getaway. She knew I would like this because I love melted cheese and I crave chocolate fondue. Seeing as how the only melting pot I knew of in Canada or in my vacinity has closed down we jumped on this opportunity and I wasn't dissapointed. We went for desert and it was delish. The service and attention was pleasant and quick. At least 4 people including the manager came to wish us a happy anniversary. Great experience"

  • "The entire experience was 5 star. Reservations and taken in on time. Outstanding food, service, and ambiance. I'd recommend The Melting Pot to anyone."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Went for dessert, always good. This time we tried the add on with berries and cheesecake. This time they had a red velvet cheesecake and red pound cake. Although I'm allergic to red dye, they didn't substitute either of them and was still charged full price for the ad on. It's always a fun experience, but going later at night some of the staff was not as professional as they usually are due to being the end of the night. We will stick to early dinner next time."

    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was our first trip to The Melting Pot. I had heard a ton of things about it, all of which seemed good, although I herd it was pricey, but figured it would be worth it. We had reservations and it was perfectly timed. What we disliked the MOST, was the meat part of the meal...or the 'main course'. Our waiter told us meats cook in 2 minutes, while we heard another waitress say 5. He said if we cooked things too long it would be even better, but they were like leather. We were so nervous about making sure things were cooked, we wouldn't order that again. The saving grace was dessert. No guessing, lots of goodies and delicious. Not enough food for what you're charged though. I would go back, ONLY for dessert, NOT for a meal."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The restaurant itself is very pretty and it has a very nice private feel for a romantic dinner. Fondue, of course, is a fun meal to eat. The food was very good. However, we felt it was overpriced and portions were small. Service was exceptional. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was a cute touch when our server brought us a plate with dipping sauces for our dessert that spelled out Happy Anniversary and Valentine's Day."

  • "Harley was our waiter and man is he a complete professional. He answered all of our questions witha smile, explained all the food very well and was very attentive. My wife is a vegetarian and I am not. This caused the only problem for the night. As they sat us at a table that only had one burner. Which meant that I had to go vegetarian. The Melting Pot should be able to fix this by having a pot with two chambers. Or asking people when they walk in if they'd like to sit at a table with two burners."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I wasn't sure how he would feel about cooking his own food, but he thought it was "pretty cool" and said during the meal that we'd definitely be coming back. I've had bariatric surgery so do not eat a lot at one time, so e share the 4-course meal for one with the addition of a lobster tail, and an upgrade on the dessert. There were more than enough dippers for us to share for the cheese course, he enjoyed the salad while I rested my stomach and while I had 2 shrimp, a piece of the chicken, beef, pork, and a bit of lobster, he was satisfied with the amount of meat. As for the chocolate fondue... we shared some,ate mostly the fresh fruit and brought the baked goods home to reheat the next day and that was a great treat."

  • "I've been to The Melting Pot many times and I always enjoy it. Food and service is excellent. A manager always stops by to ask us if we are enjoying ourselves. Just one concern: the noise level seemed excessive. Made conversation more difficult this time."
