The Melting Pot - Buffalo
Great!An excellent evening. Make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy the experience and to have fun.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for something new or forFun for something new or for a special occasion. Put aside at least 2 hours if you plan on the 4 course meal. Try not to over do it on the first course of cheese or you'll never make it through the amazing chocolate dessert. We mentioned in passing that one of had a birthday recently and the waiter brought out a plate he had the cooks write happy birthday on and added a rice crispy treat cake with a candle. Nice touch! I totally recommend going to the melting pot.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Never should've waited so long to go! Was so much fun and delicious!!!! Took 3 other girlfriends as a gift and we just kept saying OMG!! Selections were many and I don't think you could choose wrong! Feedback would be for waiter to advise that the bouillon broth doesn't brown the steak like we are used to but it still tasted great!!! I have already recommended you many times over back at the office!!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMRomance AwaitsWe love going here for a nice private romantic dinner! The slow pace gives us time to talk an just be together, and the food is awesome.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest service and romanticBest service and romantic atmosphere. I enjoyed every minute!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to The MeltingWe have been to The Melting Pot several times. It is a great place if you want to have a casual dining experience with great food, a vastly different experience than the normal restaurant and great service. We have never been disappointed. The servers have been excellent and the food quality has been awesome as well.The only thing we would like to see changed is that some of the tables in the back area are small and the lighting is very poor. Minor setbacks to an otherwise great experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was very nice and cozyIt was very nice and cozy server was super attentive everyone was friendly...the for was delicious...4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe heard the ad for the "WNYWe heard the ad for the "WNY Rest. week so we thought we would try it. Although for our usual night out it is a little "pricey" we really enjoyed it. Amanda R was our waitress and was great explaining everything since it was our first time.. The 4 course allowed us to get a real feel for the offerings so it was a great choice. We will deff be asking family and friends for gift certificates so we can enjoy it again!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AM7 of us went to the Melting7 of us went to the Melting Pot and we were all still talking about it the next day. The food was outstanding and Brendan, our waiter, we all fell in love with. His service was perfect, attentive but not rushing us his humour and banter made our evening. We couldn't believe we spent 2 and a half hours there just enjoying the evening. The format of the four course meal made us slow down and enjoy each others company. Best restaurant atmosphere for a group of friends to get together to catch up. We will all definitely be back when we travel to Buffalo/Niagara again.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to the MeltingWe've been to the Melting Pot before and were very disappointed to see they've changed the menu to have the customer getting less food for more expense.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOn many different occasionsOn many different occasions i have gone to the Melting Pot and each time they have made the trip very special. Hard to beat the service and quality of food. But most of all they make you feel like VIP's every time4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoyableAlways fun and tasty. Because of the process of cooking your own food a few bites at a time it really slows down the meal and allows diners to enjoy everything rather than the hurried pace at so many other places. Quality of the food is high, service by waitstaff is excellent. The lighting is very subdued, so don't forget your reading glasses if you're of a certain age.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMy boyfriend and myself wentMy boyfriend and myself went there for the first time. Glad buffalo finally has a fondue restaurant. We are already planning our next visit.
Our waitress was incredible nice and very prompt4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMHad an excellent time at dinner.Had an excellent time at dinner. Was there for a special occasion and the waitress asked why we were out for the night. For desert she brought us a special custom desert for our celebration along with the owner stopping by the table to personally congratulate us for our news. Made it a very enjoyable night.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is great to have a MeltingIt is great to have a Melting Pot in Buffalo. This is an upscale, wonderful dining experience. From a romantic setting to, this time, a dining experience centered on the pre-teen grandchildren in order to create an unforgettable memory, the Melting Pot has something for everyone. There are many dining areas/rooms and I appreciated a separate area for our group. Our server was very attentive, the food was fresh, the area was immaculate, and there was no annoying music. The entire evening was a great experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Accommodating. GreatVery Accommodating. Great Service. Wonderful time all around.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent, butThe food was excellent, but I miss the dinner for two deal. Also, since now the four course option is offered, it would be better to make the salads optional because its too much food. The dinner was a little pricey, but the birthday plate and champagne were greatly appreciated and made the experience wonderful. Thank you......he loved it!!!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this restaurant! It'sI love this restaurant! It's fun and provides the opportunity for great conversation. It's romantic when your with someone special on a date night, but it's also a blast when your with a group of friends. I highly suggest making reservations. I have rarely seen empty tables when walking through the restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely recommend to anyoneDefinitely recommend to anyone wanting a private, romantic dining experience with that special person in your life..My advice is the 4 course meal and request Carly as your server...she's the best!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were up hereMy husband and I were up here for our second wedding anniversary. We have always gone to melting pot by us in CT. First time to this one and OMG it is amazing. The place is so nice. Only downside is it was very warm in the restaurant4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family and I have beenMy family and I have been to The Melting Pot before, but this by far was the most enjoyable experience yet. The Easter Brunch ofering was a perfect fit for us. A great special occasion spot. The food and dining service was the best by far.
We will definitely be back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for long dinner!This is a fun dining experience if you're looking for a long dinner out with close friends. We got the 4 course dining experience. It was so much food, we literally couldn't finish it. We were at our table for over 3 hours, but new to expect that and had a great time.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLadies Night with 3 friendsLadies Night with 3 friends went well. Service was great and food was delicious. Our only grip was the $5 Martini deal. When we did this night in the past there were many to choose from, now there were only 2 so called martinis you could have for this price.
The grand sangria was fine for 2 of my friends but we all agreed the citrus one was definitely not to our liking. Since The Melting Pot advertises $5 Martini's it was a disappointment to see only 2.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMService: We were seated promptly.Service: We were seated promptly. The server was very helpful in guiding us through the menu, showed up promptly with courses, warned us about the hot fondue pot several times, and asked with each course if everything was ok. The manager stopped by to ask as well. Even the bus boy was friendly.
Drink: the selection of teas was nice. The craft beer selection on draft was good.
Food: was varied and seemed fresh. The salads (strawberry & greens with black raspberry, Caesar) were especially good. We appreciated the reminder from the server to move raw foods directly into the pot, not to our plates. The server's extra touch in quickly making a birthday "cake" of Rice Krispie squares was appreciated3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMawesome as always!Everything was excellent! And nice to see that they too have become aware of gluten intolerance.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. Our serverHad a great time. Our server (Paul) was very informed and energetic. The food was great and ample. We had more than we could eat. If you're checking it out, he aware that the four course menu takes close to 3 hours soprano to make an evening of it! Will return for another special event.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious menu and very niceDelicious menu and very nice specials now and again! Not a restaurant to go to if you are in a hurry but a nice relaxing evening with time to chat and enjoy a very pleasant meal.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
