The Melting Pot - Grand Rapids
Come one, come allWent there with my husband for my birthday. We were seated at a romantic little booth just big enough for two people, high walls so it was very private. The server was excellent. He was knowledgeable, helpful, stopped by several times to check on us, but not so often that it was intrusive. The food was plenty, we left there full! I definitely recommend this restaurant.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat date nightMy wife and I visited the GR location while in town for the weekend. I had made reservations the following day for the dinner, we were seated immediately upon arriving. Our server was delightful and knew the menu options from top to bottom. We were able to enjoy our dinner thanks to the great seating for two towards the back, which was free of distractions.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressiveThis was our first time at the Melting Pot. We were impressed with the wait staff. Our waiter was wonderful when explaining the different ways to experience the Melting Pot. We really liked the way he was not "pushy" like other restaurants. We were able to eat at our own pace and he would casually just walk by and check if we were ready for the next course. We did not feel rushed. The atmosphere is laid back, quiet, and very enjoyable.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMelting PotIt was a nice one in a lifetime celebration event. Too expensive for one meal for a return visit.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWicked goodIt was a first date and i suggested the Melting Pot. He had not been there becore. Kristen did an exceptional job taking care of us. Everything about the experience was excellent. I think we have found "our" restaurant for all future events.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMyummyMelting pot was a fun place to go out with a group of friends. The cost would stop me from going there often ($60 for one person with a drink and tip), but for a special occasion it is fun. The service was fantastic and the ambiance was nice. I don't usually frequent chain restaurants, but this was still a fun and very tasty experience.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFun bday experience w/ kidsOpen Table online reservations made getting a table easy.
Hostess friendly and proactive in being sure our young ones (6 , 9 & 11) were happy.
Service slow, but appears our server was charged with lots of tables that evening.
Food was good. Like their new "a la carte" type menu.
Had concerns our younger kids wouldn't do well here (food choices & length of meal), but discovered they have a kids menu. They even have Mac & Cheese option for picky eaters. With 2 adults & 3 kids, we order 2 "full experiences" and an entree for the 11yo. there was plenty of food for everyone.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayPleasant experience overall. Options were limited because of lunch hours on Mothers Day. I also felt for the price the portions weren't adequate. Our server was a little slow in between courses. The food itself and the quality of the food was delicious and was pleased with that. I probably will only return if the other half is interested in going.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSo good, but expensive!We had a blast. It was expensive, but for a special occasion it is so worth it. The food was awesome! The ambience was very good, too. Thanks!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMIn My Top TenBrought my boyfriend back for another lovely dessert. We had a great time, it was busy but our waitress was great and we didn't feel rushed at all. Everything was wonderful and we hope to be back soon, hopefully for dinner as well as dessert.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEven the best can have an off nightDining at the Melting Pot is normally a slam-dunk 5 star experience, but this time things fell short of the mark. Our waiter messed up our drink orders and the menu changes had a big impact on the wallet. The most annoying part of the night was the large party near us that had several small children. Not sure who thought that hot oil, sharp sticks, and toddlers was a good combination, and I certainly don't blame the restaurant for the patrons, but nosiy distractions simply highlighted the little things that went wrong.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous flavors, service,Fabulous flavors, service, and overall experience!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMwe went there for our onewe went there for our one year anniversary.it truely a wonderful memory4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery unique dining experience!Very unique dining experience!

The waitress was was efficient and helpful. The food was delicious as always. I highly recommend the strawberry, almond salad which was exceptional.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways FUN! Nothing quiteAlways FUN! Nothing quite like it. Like the new more individualized menu choices. Lets you dine without committing to a 2 hour timeframe. Great idea! Be careful in changing quality of products too much . . filet mignon this time was not the same as prior. Overall, continues as a WOW experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThe description of the CaesarThe description of the Caesar salad said the pine nuts were parmesan encrusted, but they actually seemed to be carmelized, very sweet, kind of an odd note in a Caesar, probably would not order that again. The rest of the food was delicious. The server was very engaging. The entire restaurant was suffused with an odd smell, I could still smell it on my clothes after leaving the restaurant. I can only assume it was from the various pots of simmering wines? It was a bit off-putting. I am not sure if that would stop me from going again, but perhaps better air circulation would help? Overall, the food was delicious, the service was top-notch and the experience was definitely unique!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with great serviceAmazing food and the special requests were perfect. Our waitress was awesome and couldn't have asked for more from her. She is a huge asset to the restaurant and to our overall experience!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe got a four course experience,We got a four course experience, and wow, what an amount of food! We ordered two of the entrees but different ones so we could share. Everything was great! Probably could have just ordered the entrees and the dessert. By the time we got to the chocolate pot we were so full we could hardly stand it. Everything was well worth it. We had gone with friends before and it wasn't as fun, but with a couple we really enjoyed ourselves.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOur service was prompt andOur service was prompt and friendly and the food is always excellent.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time back in a fondueFirst time back in a fondue restaurant in many years and Melting Pot did not disappoint.
