The Melting Pot - Farmingdale
AmazingThe melting pot is my favorite place to go I am obsessed and would go there every night if I could.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMso great!I came here to celebrate my birthday. Our waiter Chris was so nice and helpful. I would come back here in a heartbeat. It was truly a unique dining experience.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Celebration was greatWe visited for my daughter's 17th Birthday. We had the cheese course, two types--Fiesta and Wisconsin Trio--both were delicious. Then we had salad. The dressings all seem to be a bit bland, we'll skip them next time. Then dessert, of course. Beautiful chocolate with all kinds of dippers. Yum! The service was outstanding. A Tip--if you're only ordering cheese and dessert, you might want to order the cheese course for a person or two extra. It is meant as an appetizer and you may not have quite enough for a meal.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience at the meltingGreat experience at the melting pot. Our waiter, Joe, really made the night perfect.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the food and serviceAs always, the food and service was outstanding. Heratio was an excellent server. He was polite, friendly and very knowledgable.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFond DueThe Melting Pot is a place to go to at least twice a year. Not your normal restaurant, you get to cook your meal. Selective wine list, many bottles not listed. Romantic booths for the couples, use your imagination.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur First ExperienceI took my daughter to the Melting Pot with a few of her friends for her 10th Birthday. It was a very clean and classy restaurant. I was a little hesitant at first, after reading some reviews about waitress staff giving customers a hard time when just ordering dessert. I have to tell you, I am so glad I decided to judge for myself. Our waitress was wonderful. She explained how to fondue works and did a show in front of the kids. They ordered the oreo and marshmallow fondue and were taken back by how they toasted the marshmallow inside the fondue pot. It was amazing. Even the manager came over to check if everything was ok. I can't wait to go back there. Next time, we're going for dinner AND dessert. Yum!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceThe service is unbelievable. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and delicious great foodIf you just want fondue be it cheese or chocolate it's great. If you're hungry for an entree plan on doing the cooking. Allow a couple of hours. Relax and have fun.

It was a wonderful meal!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time and food!I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and the food was great. We had the 4 course meal which was excellent. We had to cook our own food which was fun. The server we had was great!! Will def go there again.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleased with The Melting PotI took my wife to the Melting Pot for our wedding anniversary. When making the reservation, I requested a quiet table. When we arrived, they had selected one of the best private tables for us. We even had a Happy Anniversary card waiting for us on the table. The food was terrific. Having never been to a fondue restaurant, I did not know what to expect, but the Melting Pot far exceeded my expectations. The service was wonderful and our waitress was very attentive. I would highly recommend the Melting Pot for a romantic special occasion.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFondue VirginsIt was our first time to a fondue restaurant. We didn't feel rushed at all, which gave us lots of time to catch up. The server was super nice and very knowledgable, and he was very attentive. I told the hostess that we were celebrating a birthday, and when we arrived to the table, there was a card there with "Happy Birthday!" written on the envelope, entitling her to a $10 coupon. My friend thought that was so sweet! The Spinach and Artichoke Cheese was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. We chose the 3-selection entrees (2 of them) so we tasted 6 different items. And, of course, the chocolate fondue was the best! Love the variety of dippers! We will definitely be returning to The Melting Pot in the future!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWill definitely be backMy wife and I went here on our anniversary and it was our first time. We tried the 4 course and it was fantastic. Our servers were outstanding and very helpful. The food was fantastic. I can't comment on the alcoholic drinks as neither my wife nor I drink but we would definitely be back.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent waiterThe waiter was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. The food was definitely unique. It came to the table as small piles of raw meat that we stabbed with metal skewers and dipped into a boiling broth. At first, I thought the novelty would wear off rather quickly, but to my surprise it did not. After the first few, the task didn't seem as laborious as I originally worried.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFondue FunIf you ejoy fondue, this is the place for you! You could make a meal on the cheese and chocolate fondues alone, but the entrees and yummy too.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMNight of fun5 girls celebrating 2 birthdays had a great time!

While the entree portion of the meal never really wows me...I love the cheese fondue apps and the dessert.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!This was the first time my fiance and I had been to The Melting Pot. We didn't know what to expect, so we were blown away by the food and the service. All the ingredients were fresh and the vegetables were crisp. We will definitely dine here again!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a great timeFrom the moment I walked in the door with my girlfriend, Chris was there welcoming us in. We were promptly seated and put in a very nice and secluded table. I will definitely be coming back in the near future.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time experienceSomeone had already told me all about the place and what kind of place it is. My best friend and I only mange to get together every so often so this couldn't have been more of a perfect place. We enjoyed our first time experience at the melting pot together and we definetly plan on coming again. I find the place to be perfect for just a fun night out with girlfriends. I'm glad we didn't bring our kids because I find it to be more enjoyable for adults than kids. Food was delicious, we had a great time overall.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRestaurant Week SuccessI recently moved into the area and have been eager to try the Melting Pot! When I found out it was restaurant week, I made a reservation and I'm so glad I did! My boyfriend and I had a delicious meal. The setting is nice and private in a big comfy booth. Our watier Chris was excellent in explain the menu and how everything works. The food was delicious and it was nice to have the time to talk and enjoy being with my boyfriend while we were cooking at the same time. Oh and obviously the chocolate fondue at the end was the best part. Chocolate is the way to my heart, and the Melting Pot got it!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceFrom service to food it was overall an experience to make you want to come back for more. With the setup to provide privacy while you dine made it for a romantic event. For sure coming back!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a fun, unique wayThis is a fun, unique way to dine! Initially, we weren't sure we wanted to go out to dinner only to have to cook our food ourselves, but we had a BLAST! The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and how long to cook each item, and the dipping sauces added to the experience.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood to savor2nd time here and already cant wait to go again. Can't be in a rush to eat, it's meant to sit back and enjoy. Get the 4 course meal, filling enough and get just enough fondue for two...sure could use a lil more but nothing worth complaining about.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMKudos...mostly...The cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue were very, very good. The salads were a tad bland for my taste...they definitely needed liberal amounts of the garlic and wine seasoning. The entrees were good, but definitely overpriced. Next time I think we'll just come for cheese and dessert, but we will come back.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDippin deliciousWe went for our 5th Anniversary. My husband was skeptical at first but loved it in the end. All of the servers from the waitress to the managers were extremely sweet and thoughtful throughout the night. The corner table was very romantic and we enjoyed eating at a slower pace then we typically do with two children. We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding service, reasonablyOutstanding service, reasonably priced and a great relaxing meal!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for the cheese fondueGreat for the cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue. Kids love it. Main courses are less interesting.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest SpotWe love this place. Every single time we go, the hostesses are so friendly and accomodating. The bartender and the waitress were friendly and enjoyable. The manager even came by and asked us how everything was. The food is fun and delicious. If your child is impatient, I wouldnt reccomend going because it takes time and patience to enjoy your meal. It is nice and intimate, perfect for date nights. I thoroughly enjoy this place.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAll was great the food wasAll was great the food was amazing the service was outstanding I LOVE that the managers ask how it is going even on a busy evening.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waitress Nikki was amazing!The waitress Nikki was amazing!
