Diner Reviews
  • "We love coming to the melting pot. It's such a fun dining experience. The cheddar cheese is so delicious, the salads are fresh and full of amazing flavors, the meats are perfectly seasoned and the chocolate is of course worth finishing every drop. Must go."

  • "Great value for the money. And if you don't go for a 4 course menue, you can keep your expenses easily below $20 / person. Great service, very attentive and supportive, just the jazz background music was a) too loud and b) sounded all the same to us. Besides that we had a great dinner, were more than full at the end."

  • "I was celebrating my anniversary with my honey and two other friends of ours. We had already eaten dinner so we stopped in for the Chocoate Fondue dessert. Best decision ever! They even has a little Happy Anniversary card on our table signed by the whole staff. My party had never been to The Melting Pot so it was a great experience for them. We had a blast while it stormed outside.. :)"

  • "We visited Melting Pot in Fort Lauderdale recently. While sitting at the bar, I accidently spilled a full glass of water on my stretch pants. The manager, Christopher jumped to my rescue by cleaning the up the mess I made. He then went to the extraordinary and procured his personal hair dryer from his locker and gave it to me to dry my slacks. There was a receptacle in the ladies room and I was able to dry my pants and dine in comfort. What a guy! Kudos to him and many thanks. The meal was wonderful."

  • "My husband and I went for our 11th yr anniversary and this is the 2nd time we have been. The 1st time was at the one in Pembroke Pines about 8 years ago and this time on sunrise and both times were great! Very romantic, private, and the food was great especially the dessert. The only thing we didn't like was the chicken because it took too long to cook and 3 pieces were still chewy after 5-7 mins. We got the 4 course menu and it was all good. I would recommend this place to anyone especially if it's a special occasion and on top of that if you give them your email they will send you offers and I received an email for 6 free chocolate covered strawberries because of our anniversary. Our waiter was very nice and sweet and so was the manager."

  • "I've avoided this place for years cause my first experience seemed too much work for me to pay so much for dinner. Decided to go back for a special occasion (party of 6) thinking it would be fun. Not much has changed other than a few menu options and the prices. Too dark in the restaurant area we were located made it difficult for he group to feel comfortable."

  • "Everything was great. Our server was friendly and funny. She was very helpful and was always checking up on us but in a good way she wasn't interrupting. The food was excellent I recommend this place to any lover of fondue."

  • "We had never done fondue before so for this to be our first experience it will definitely not be the last. The Melting Pot Rocks!"

  • "My husband and I received a gift card for our anniversary. We didn't know what to expect, but our server, Charles, explained everything in great detail. It was an evening of leisurely and very enjoyable dining. The timing of the servings was perfect. The sauces that were served with the entrees were awesome, we even had to have two of them refilled. The chocolate? What can I say? Yummy! We can't wait to go back."

  • "We came for the happy hour and they gave us a regular table since we were a large group. Kate was our server. She was excellent. She provided us separate checks, water refills without asking, and brought us extra dipping items. The service was seamless for our large group. The food was excellent. The happy hour deal goes til 7pm and gives you 1/2 off cheese and 1/2 off dessert fondue. The cheese fondue comes with veggies, apples, multiple types of bread, and taco chips. The dessert comes with strawberries, pineapple, bananas, rice krispies, marshmallows, brownies, pound cake, & chocolate chip cake. "

  • "I went with my wife for lunch on Sunday. The food and service, outstanding. The bar service is one of the best in broward with great cocktails at very affordable prices."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "If your celebrating a special occasion with your significant other, there are small booths where you can close the curtains & have all the privacy you want. Very romantic! Just remember that the people next to you can hear every sound you make! We started with the Cheddar Cheese fondue for 1, which is really enough for 2. Then we split a spinach salad with the house dressing & the 1 entree which we also split was the ever tender filet mignon! That way we could indulge in dessert without the overstuffed feeling we usually had before they had the single serving options. Great value! "

  • "despite the fact that we had a reservation, we had to wait, they did compensate us with free drinks and a coupon- I know the meals there take time, a suggestion would be to give more time between reservations"

    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "The four cheese fondue was incredible! We had never gotten cheese fondue here (in previous visits), but we most always will do so in the future. We had also always used the oil for the cooking of entrees, but this time we used the broth. Yet another thing we will repeat! And yes, we will most certainly be back"

  • "My wife and I always talked about going to The Melting Pot and finally decided to go. The food and service was excellent. It was fun dipping and sharing food. My wife says she would just order the cheese next time and that would fill her up because it is a bit pricy. If you're looking for a great date spot, I would def suggest this place. "
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Came with our Niece from out of town who loves Melting Pot. Menu was revised a bit and some nice IPA beers added. One negative thing we noticed was the tempura batter would not crisp up in the oil. Seemed like they may have changed the recipe. The Alpine cheese was delicious and better than the old Swiss version. The special we had included endless chocolate and we took advantage of an additional pot as well as more blondies and pineapple."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "My husband and I went to The Melting Pot for his birthday last month. We enjoyed it so much that we wanted to go back again-- sooner than later. The French Quarter main course selection is absolutely delicious! The atmosphere, food, and service was great. We love this place!"

  • "my experience was very pleasant at the melting pot yesterday evening. the staff was extremely accompanying and even helped my party decide what choice to make between two different options for desert."

  • "We loved the atmosphere, very classy and romantic. The food is nothing out of the ordinary, but the whole experience was nice and fun."

  • "This was my third time at Melting Pot, first at this location. It is a nice place to go for a date with someone you've recently met or someone you've known for years. The interactive nature of a fondue-style meal is a nice, fun deviation from a typical, sometimes boring, talk nonstop dinner date. The ambiance is still such that you can have a nice intimate conversation. This was my girlfriend's first time and she loved it. We both left with full bellies, just be prepared to spend over $100 for 4 courses for 2 people including tip but no drinks."

  • "We had 5 girls and the fondue was delicious. Have loved this restaurant for years, but one of our guests had never been. She loved it."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "Service was a bit slow at first, waiter had to be reminded to take our drink order before the food order. Drinks (alcohol) were brought to my son and I, but not our wives (soft drinks were brought when food was brought to table), so wasn't timed well, and the ladies, of course, felt ignored by that action. As night went on, server was more attentive. As always, food was fresh and "the cook it yourself" was fun as always."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "The tables are a bit pressed for room (both leg room and table room). Although my kids had fun with cooking their own food, I definitely do not recommend it for kid that are picky eaters; getting more than one type of fondue pot takes a special effort. I might go back for dessert, which was very good. I just felt the protein portions are bite size and you end up having to spend a lot of money of the other items (cheese fondue, salad, etc.) to fill up. Below is what $160+tip got 2 adults and 2 children: Spinach Artichoke Cheese Fondue, 2 servings 3 protein selection Main Entrée Fondue, 2 adult servings and 2 children servings Oreo Chocolate Fondue, 4 servings 1 glass of wine 2 beers"

  • "Took my daughter for her 21st birthday. She chose that restaurant due to our prior experience. The service was excellent and the staff wished my daughter Happy Birthday which made her feel very special. She had a hand written birthday card at the table as well. It was a wonderful, relaxing dinner and our waiter, Josh, was so helpful and explained everything."

  • "I've been going to the Melting Pot since they first opened and have never been disappointed. Everything was excellent!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "Food and service were excellent. Only complaint is that there was only one other table occupied when we arrived and we were sat right next to them - some privacy would have been nicer, and I'm sure we would have been reseated if we'd asked."

  • "Melting Pot is always a fine dining experience. Great way to spend a quality evening with good friends and good food. Chocolate fondue Delicious! Staff - friendly and attentive!"

  • "Our server, Grace, was very pleasant and personable. She explained the fondue cooking process and explained each of the 4 courses. She was attentive but not bothersome=perfect. The manager too stopped by to check on our experience. The cheese course is great, try dipping the apples! Salads were tasty and not too much to fill you up. The meat entrees we ordered offered good variety. The filet is worth it over the sirloin. Shrimp, chicken and pork were tasty. The selection of dipping sauces were amazing. The best comes at the end with the chocolate fondue. We go the ying & yang milk and white chocolate. Wow, awesome!"

  • "Cheese and desert were great. However the meat was spiced too drastically and it distorted the overall tastes."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "I have never been into boiling my food from a fondue pot on a table with a built in stove but overall is was a great time and the Cheese Fondue and the Chocolate dessert fondue were amazing. The entree's we decent but overall, the ambiance and service were excellent. If you have not been, then you should try it at least once. We will be back."
