Just make sure to take your time; we spent about four hours just trying different combinations of sauces and batters. Our server Kelly-Ann was delightfully engaging and really made our evening special. Overall, two thumbs up and will definitely be coming back again.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMfondue buffetjaycee was great waitress, even though her helpers abandoned her late in meal, forcing her to bus dishes, which became voluminous near end....the concept for us is flawed, since there as SO many tastes and food groups served, poor stomach goes on overload with the chaos....but that's on me....the cheese and the desserts are nonpareil...the shrimp just right..the beef and sausage great too, but really became a food fight of gluttenous proportion.....anyway, JC" was worth the $40 tip on the $255 bill for the 5 of us....3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want to do fondue,If you want to do fondue, this is the place. Its a bit pricey, but for special occasions or as a once in a while treat, its fun and you won't leave hungry.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Special OccasionLove the Melting Pot. It's a fun experience that every one should try. I took my friend for the first time for his birthday and even though it took a while for him to catch on to the menu, he enjoyed himself. The entrees are not the best. Kind of bland, small portions, and definitely overpriced. If you are looking for a big meal, not the best place. However, dessert is always to die for and worth every penny! You're paying for the experience if anything.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great night at The MeltingHad a great night at The Melting Pot. Lovely fondue. Great for a first date.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI had requested the "loversI had requested the "lovers lane" ahead of time because it was a special occasion. It was just what I wanted. Romantic lighting,upstairs away from the noise in a sort of nook table. The food was AMAZING. Loved the fiesta cheese, got the classic and fusion for our entrees and couldn't have been happier. Dessert was my favorite along with the butterscotch martini. Definitely coming back.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great evening! We startedHad a great evening! We started out with drinks at the bar as we waited for our table, we arrived a bit early. Bartender was awesome, he asked when our reservations were for so that he could keep an eye on the time for us. It came reservation time and he advised that he would follow up for us to see where they were at with our table. We asked him to hold off as it was the last few mins of the SDSU Aztec game. The hostess came to get us just as the game ended, which was about 10 mins past our reservation time, but again worked out perfect this time!! Gave our credit card to he bartender to close out our tap and he said he would bring down our receipt to our table. Sure enough once we were seated he was there with our card and receipt.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMYou gotta try this place!Another great experience @ the Melting Pot. Great service, scrumptious food. The only thing that prevented absolute perfection was one other guest a few tables away whose voice was extremely loud, and he wouldn't stop talking - not MP's fault.
We loved the fact that we could pick and chose which dippers we could get w/ our chocolate, and they brought more when we ran out.
Highly recommended.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent fondue the chocolateexcellent fondue the chocolate was so awesome with cheesecake, the chhese fondue and entree great as well1/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
