Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed out evening there. Excellent choices of food. Some folks may feel limited since everyone at most tables have to share the same fondue cooking style. That has to be agreed upon at the beginning. The only thing that was surprising was the very high price of wine by the glass."

It is a great place to go when you want to socialize with friends and family cause you really can't rush your meal. From start to finish, fun...fun...fun."

  • "My wife and I just spent our anniversary at the Melting Pot the other night. We had heard from other friends that it was a great place to go. We had a blast. Our reservation was at 7 and we probably started eating by 730 with the first course. I recommend that you save two hours to enjoy your time there. We got a four course meal that was for two people and it was plenty of food. I had a beer flight that was paired with each course as it came out and it was awesome. Great restaurant for a special occasion. We will be going back for sure in the future."

  • "This was our first adventure to the Easton location. Having been to multiple locations around the country I am always curious to see how each location runs their operation. We were not disappointed! The service was excellent, our booth was private, the drinks were delicious, and of course the food was amazing. Thank you so much for a romantic and enjoyable Saturday evening."

  • "I love Melting Pot and I attend often. I was upset however, the Fiesta Cheese and the Mushroom salad were removed, BOTH of my favorites. The night was good, and the addition of the pineapple to the Flaming Turtle plate was AWESOME! It is something NOT to forget! Bring back the mushroom salad though."

  • "Two friends and I came to the Melting Pot for a girls night out. It was a fun night. The waiter was super friendly and very patient with us as we did not know much about the menu. All the staff we met were very nice and polite. It is expensive but also doubles as entertainment so worth the cost to me."

  • "My wife had been throwing out hints for a couple of years to come to The Melting Pot but I held out because I thought fondue died in the '80s. I made reservations for our anniversary and we had a very enjoyable evening."

  • "The Melting Pot never disappoints. And Drew is the best waiter ever. We are semi-regulars here, and couldn't even remember the last time we'd been here, but Drew remembered our "regular" order! "
    Dined on 5/26/2014
  • "This was a nice restaurant but if you do 3 or 4 course expect be there a while. I think it took us about 35 minutes per course on average with the main course taking the longest since you have to cook the food. We went with 3 courses and it took us 2.5 hours from being seated to check. I would recommend eating somewhere else and then getting the dessert. They dropped the cheesecake which I wanted but it was still good. I think it would be hard to get out of there under $100 for 2 people. Our bill was $130 with a 5 oz glass of wine each and 3 courses. I give it a C for value but a neat concept to do once every long while. C = OK value, atmosphere, and food. One or more of these things was off that detracted from the overall experience."

  • "This was our first time there. It was a great experience to try something different and unique. The server was very informative and helpful preparing the table and customers for what was to follow. It was a very entertaining way to spend a birthday dinner. I would recommend that every one at least try the experience for themselves at least once."

  • "Went for adult son's birthday celebration. It was a fun experience. Something different to do for a special occasion. Once we understood how the 4 choice menu works we then had to decide on mutual oil and chocolate choices. A good thing if everyone agrees which we did. Would go back again but not that often. It was a bit pricey coming in at under $200 for 4 of us with no drinks other than water. Appreciated the elevator to get back to street level, however, we didn't know there was one to use to get downstairs. With my husband's recent hip replacement, it was a long number of stairs to the basement restaurant."

  • "I have been to a Melting Pot restaurant about dozen times: however, this is my first visit to the Columbus Melting Pot. The restaurant was wonderful. We started with a great cocktail at the bar. We followed with a wonderful 4-Course meal. Our friends who were with us enjoyed it very much as it was their first visit to a Melting Pot. I recommend the restaurant if you enjoy a great fondue meal."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The service is outstanding, the food is extraordinary and unique. We enjoyed our date night. The only issue, while the cocktails look good on paper, they weren't very good. We should have stuck with wine. "

  • "I took my girlfriend to the melting pot for our two year anniversary. My girlfriend chose the vegetarian meal. I chose the Orange duck. Upon receiving these meals I didn't realize we had to cook our own meals. I paid 35 dollars a meal and I had to cook my own food..... The food was not good the only thing that was good was the spinach dip that we had for an appetizer. The ambience is romantic, but personally it's a bit to dark. I was not impressed at all with the "Melting Pot" and will never go back. "

  • "Just this last Friday evening I sat in at the Melting Pot at Easton. I was quite pleased with everything that I found here, it being the first visit for my boyfriend and I. It was extremely romantic and quiet, even though the place was busy. This was a nice change from the usual loud atmosphere of a crowded restaurant during the peak hours of a Friday night. The food was absolutely delicious (we had mainly seafood for the main course, as well as the Smore's fondue) and our server (Drew) was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I would absolutely recommend going here. I cannot wait to go back. "
