  • "Went for my 19th birthday with my boyfriend. Pleasurable experience, great service and AMAZING food!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Food was good. The service was excellent and the experience overall was outstanding. It was out first time dining fondue style and I will definitely come back."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The Melting Pot is one of my all time favorite restaurants. It is ideal for a romantic get away with their private high wall booths at their 'lovers lane' seating accommodations. The food and cooking options are varied and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "The Melting Pot is fabulous! The booths are sectioned you feel as though you're alone, with plenty of room. We did the 4 course and left extremely full and happy. Our waitress was attentive and patient explaining each step. Joined the email club while we were there and now get special offers online!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Our only complaint was that our server didn't check in with us often enough. As a result some in our party went without beverages for far too long. After we received our dessert I had a question but didn't see our server again until he came by with the check."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We went to the melting pot as a group of four. I'm allergic to seafood but my friends wanted to get some so we asked if we could move to a table with to burners which in our section alone had three empty ones. Our server said that they were all taken and that they couldn't do it anyway because when we made the reservation we didn't request two yet every other time they have done it. Two of those three tables stayed empty the whole entire time and I felt bad because my friends couldn't get seafood."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I had a really good time and enjoyed myself a lot. I just wish it wasn't so expensive It was only th 2 of us and it was 100 dollars. That's a lot but otherwise I am very happy with it and if I could afford it maybe I would go again if I have a lot if money I would definately be going."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "4-course meal didn't disappoint, although we were too stuffed from the prior 3 courses to fully enjoy the dessert course. That being said, an overall fun experience."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This is the perfect date night location! The cheese and chocolate fondue were delicious. The variety of dippers were perfect. The new four course dinner experience allows each diner to choose the meat options they enjoy most. I was able to have the basic chicken, shrimp and steak, while my husband could choose the Cajun flavored meats."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Had a great experience here on Saturday! My girl friend had been dying to go there so I surprised her and it was outstanding. I would highly recommend it to any couple looking for a romantic date. And the service was great! I will be going back for sure!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Best place ever! First time, celebrated my birthday and it was one of the best places i have been to in a while!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We were automatically welcomed with a big smile from the hostess, Rachel. She was very sweet and accommodating. She even wished us a Happy Anniversary! We had the best waiter Mike who was more than accommodating as it was our first time there. He wanted to make sure we fully understood everything. Couldn't have asked for a better experience."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "this was mine and my boyfriend's first time at the melting pot and we had a great time...our server was very friendly and knowledgeable...and how can you go wrong with cheese and chocolate? :)"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I went to the Melting Pot with my parents and husband for my birthday. We had a lovely time. Food, service and ambiance was great. Be sure to make a reservation if you want to eat before 9pm and be prepared to spend a few hours there for your meal. One of the great things is that you are not rushed through your meal. Please leave the kids at home if they will be running around and jumping on the booth. That definitely does not make the night romantic or special for others."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "This is my third time here. My only complaint is that this time my server was not very attentive and kept disappearing for lengthy time periods. Other than that I love the food and everything was delicious. Also it's fairly quiet, with just the right volume of music playing overhead, so you can actually have and hear your conversations with your table mates."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We went here for our friends 40th Birthday. There were 5 in our group and we had a great time! We did the 4 course experience and it was fun and yummy."

    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Had a first date here on tuesday and the place was amazing. The server was extremely nice and helpful since me and my date never did fondue before. I recommend this place to anyone who wants good food and a experience."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I took a girl on a date there and she was more than impressed. We only had chocolate fondue but we were both in heaven. The date couldn't have gone better"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "We had a wonderful birthday celebration. Our server was fantastic...explained everything quite well. She handled all of our specific food needs with ease and making us feel comfortable. It was a great experience!!"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "It was my first time there. Celebrating my wife's birthday, everything was great. I loved that there was a card there waiting saying happy birthday, and the whole experience was great. Our server DJ made it great for us also."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I am a Melting Pot junkie! I love to go and have visited several Melting Pot restaurants in several states in the U.S. I wanted to share the fondue experience with my good friend on her birthday. She was sadly less than impressed..here's why. Our swiss cheese fondue pot was left on "5" meaning that it did not get really hot and gooey..just warm...that started her off bad. I adjusted the heat myself and it was better. It was the first time that I felt rushed during my Melting Pot experiences. "Are you done with that?"--"Oh no rush.." we heard that from a couple of busboys and our waitress several times. We felt that we couldn't just relax and enjoy our meal. We also felt "hovered" over. Like what can we clean next?"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We went for an anniversary and our waiter Mike was wonderful! He was so attentive even though we had asked to be seated in the back. He kept checking to see if we needed anything. The food was wonderful, the artichoke spinach cheese is our favorite! Love the Cesar salad with those delicious pine nuts! I ordered the classic and my husband ordered the fondue delight, both were delicious.The flaming turtle at the end put us over, we were so full! Mike also brought over champagne when he brought the chocolate. Overall, great night out with my husband and great food!!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We regularly go to one of these chain restaurants just because they are fun and very consistent. But for the first time I am concerned that portion sizes have changed and they are pushing around the menu. Guess every restaurant is pinching pennies but for what you get this one is really starting to get greedy they have never been cheep but they are riding the edge of comfortable prices for a young couple or family. I would hate for them to mess up there market share. This is not high cuisine it is just something fun and different lets not get carried away shall we."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "This is great place to go have fun with dinner and enjoy those you're with"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "waitress/Server Nikki was AWESOME!!! Never intrusive but always on hand to help you out and get you yor food and fondue. Hostess and Management were awesome also."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went just for dessert. We ordered the pure milk chocolate. It was so yummy! Definitely going back soon to satisfy my sweet tooth!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Staff from Matt at the front to Alexa our server was amazing! Flowers were waiting on the table as I requested and Alexa made us a decorative plate congratulating us on our engagement. Couldn't ask for better."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Awesome establishment...very nice staff from the reservationist down to the waitstaff. Manager came over and greeted up. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was great price was reasonable. Only downside are the hours they don't open till 5 my mouth was watering since 3 lol"
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "I went for the vegetarian option and I think there is much room for improvement as far as the offerings. The spinach ravioli always fell off the skewers and I felt there were too many mushrooms and asparagus. The cheese and chocolate fondue were great as always :)"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "The service at the Melting Pot is outstanding, with a servicer always available. They are friendly, personable, and fun, and are very great with handling your orders. The food is amazing, and you get plenty. The cheddar cheese fondue is the best. I also recommend the Coq Au Vin for your entree. And when you make a special request package, it is right there waiting for you at the table once you enter the restaurant. Five stars for excellent food and service."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "I was disappointed to see a very abridged wine list from my last visit. Food was great and experience was fun as always, I can see why they changed the 4-course meal to have individual entrees, but I was really disappointed to see them get rid of all the wines."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "My daughter and I went to dinner for my birthday. We enjoyed the entire dining experience."
    Dined on 3/3/2014

  • "FOUR OF US HAD A DELICIOUS EXPERIENCE! 2 OUT OF THE 4 HAD NEVER DINED AT THE MELTING POT BEFORE AND ARE ANXIOUS TO RETURN!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We have been waiting for weeks to get a table at the restaurant and now we know why. They take FOREVER! Do not take your kids there unless they can sit still still for 2.5 hours. The waiter was borderline apathtic and would disappear fro 15-20 at a time. I could not find him to pay the check and walked the bill to the front and they weren't there either. For the price paid go find a fancy restaurant."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "The food was very fresh and it was great to see the fondue mixed right in front of us. Our server Megan was very plesant, upbeat and attentive without hovering."

  • "Celebrating my son's 9th birthday, we met Mike J as our server....best server ever!- great, sunny personality and very patient while we ordered. The food & drinks were delicious. The manager came by our table and wished our son Happy birthday and of course, Mike J presented our son with a special birthday treat. The evening was wonderful."

  • "All of the food was delicious! We all got the 4 course meals and they were perfect. Of course the cheese and chocolate were the favorites. Our server, Lexi was awesome. She knew about everything on the menu and her suggestions were on point. Would definitely go back for a romantic night or special occasion. Not the type of place you would go very often but I highly recommend it."
