    I took my wife to The Melting Pot Duluth for her birthday and she really enjoyed the experience. We were seated at a semi-private table, so that made the experience more romantic; almost like it was just the two us. They even gave her a birthday card signed by the staff, and when we had our chocolate fondue, they brought her an extra birthday "treat" - two chocolate covered strawberries and a small piece of cake with a candle. The food was delicious and the drinks were very good as well. We don't get to dine out very often, so when we do, going some place like this makes the occasion just that much more special. I would definitely take her there again, maybe for our one-year wedding anniversary.

    The Cheddar cheese and peanut-butter chocolate fondues were delicious, as were the wines, a Merlot and a sweet, white Riesling. Low lighting made our anniversary celebration feel romantic, and the casual atmosphere made it relaxing. Our waiter was fun, because he had a great sense of humor, and he made time to listen, as well as ask helpful questions for clarification. I do wish the waiter had not checked on us as often as he did, though, because I did feel a little rushed. Still, I definitely recommend the restaurant, and this was actually the second time we've celebrated a special occasion there.

    We love this place. It is probably my favorite place to dine. Food is always excellent, service is always good. Very friendly staff. Just all around worth every penny I spend there. We were with two other people and had separate checks and the manager did have problems making sure those checks were correct. So, we each ended up paying our bill and settling up later. Other than that, very enjoyable evening.

    We celebrated a very special day with this restaurant and both the restaurant manager and our server, Kevin, made certain everything was special. I asked for a quiet, cozy table and we were wonderfully accommodated. We asked for leisurely service and Kevin was incredibly patient and caring. Everything we ordered came exactly as described and thank goodness my special love can cook better than I. From a glass of Asti to the gift of chocolate covered strawberries to top off our evening, we could not have asked for a more wonderful time. We highly recommend this location of The Melting Pot!

    The service was great!! Food was great. Deanna was amazing. Very friendly and knowledgable. My only complaint was that they have added more lighting which took away from the dark romantic feel of the restaurant. I have kids, but I have not taken them there. The tables we were in between both had small children that cried during dinner. That's frustrating to some one who left their child at home for a night out without them. Other than that great night out with my man.

    This was my first time eating at any Melting Pot and to say that I was disappointed would be a huge understatement. My husband made it a point to tell our server that it was my first time and she could have cared less. She wasn't able to answer any of my questions about the food and didn't seem to care about giving me the first time experience at all. And for the price that we paid ($150) I expected so much more. The quality of the meats was fair to poor and when it came to fixing things at the table, our server wasn't very vocal about what she was doing or how things were being mixed. Overall, it was just a very blah experience and because of it, I probably will not go back. I can find better places to spend $150.

    We were seated near the kitchen and heard "corner" about 75 times during our meal. I'm glad the staff communicates well, but it became quite distracting. Our waiter insisted on discussing the wine list despite the fact that I was up front about having a cold and would not be drinking. I'm sure his boss requires that he up-sell but I found it rude. Also, he forgot about us for about 20 minutes near dessert. Then, we found out the host had seated a 4th table for him to juggle. We could have easily walked out without being noticed but chose be honest. Our bill was over $70, which I expected as this was a splurge, but the service was very disappointing. We wont be returning.

    I went with my little sister, as she had never had fondue before and she was heading back to college the next day. We ended up camping out far longer then we expected. The waitress was AMAZING and very patient with us. They let us stay an hour after the closed, because we were oblivious. They were really sweet about it when we apologized. Would definitely recommend them to anyone.

    My server, who had been there 18 years, was great. She was patient as it was my group's first time there. I mostly enjoyed the cheese and chocolate fondues- I will go back just for those courses and drinks. The salad was very good and both homemade dressings were very delicious. Cooking my meal did not really do it for me and I am not that big of "boiled" meat, might have been better for me if we had ordered a "seasoned" broth. The homemade sauces that accompanied the meat were very good though. I will definitely go back to try more of the menu and get more cheese and chocolate.
