    I am not a big fan of Melting Pot, but my wife is. We celebrated at the Greensboro Melting Pot and had a fabulous outstanding experience. The atmosphere was great, clean, and vibrant. Our waiter, Josh was excellent and attentive. The food was phenomenal. All in all we had a great experience and will visit again. As I am not a big fan of the fondue scene it will be for special occasions to treat my wife, but we will be back.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/13/2014
    I took my daughter there for a daddy-daughter date. I live in Tampa and I've been to Tampa and Orlando's locations. This one shares a building with Papa John's pizza with inadequate parking. The single bathroom's fixtures were not up to snuff, and there were no Melting Pot paper towels. Although there was enough food to fill us, the amount of food on the entry plate appears to be less than I am used to, yet the cost was the same. Service was almost excellent (no complaints). I would not recommend this location if you're looking for a truly romantic night, though other occasions might be nice (my daughter loved it). I wouldn't be complaining but considering the cost I was expecting better.

    For anyone who is not familiar with fondue cuisine, or for those who are, the Melting Pot in Greensboro is a top-level establishment. The welcoming atmosphere and meticulous service make for a superb dining experience. The entrée menu offers a wide choice of foods including seafood, meats, and vegetables for most every palate with 4 fondue styles available. Dessert is a delight and a highlight of the meal with several rich, chocolate fondue blends that coat strawberries, bananas, pineapple, marshmallows and other goodies. The restaurant is divided into intimate, enclosed tables perfect for a romantic dinner or a celebratory meal such as our daughter's birthday celebration. It will always be on top of the list for special occasions.

    This is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants. My husband and I recently dined for our anniversary here. With the 4 courses and 4 specialty drinks, our bill was $122 before tip. You can tailor your meal to your liking; but the best deal is the 4 courses. Even if you skip one of the other courses, you MUST have the chocolate fondue dessert! With a wide array of selections, you are bound to be pleased with your Melting Pot experience. I have always had exceptional service and we will return! If you become a free member of their fondue club, you will receive special offers and invitations to events. Well worth the price of admission.

    Took my wife there for her birthday diner. When making the reservation, I told them it was a special occasion. When we got there, everybody wished happy birthday to my wife, they had a card for her and we even got a picture of us in a little frame. It was a really nice touch. Our server was great explaining everything on the menu. Food was very good, and proportions are just right. After a 4 courses meal, we left full, without forcing ourselves to finish, or boxing leftovers. We also were seating in a nice little corner, cosy and romantic. It was perfect for this occasion, we had a wonderful evening there.

    My husband once joked that it seemed silly to go to a restaurant where you cook your own food. Not only is the food delicious but the experience is wonderfully intimate and engaging for a couple of small group. In this age of people attached at the thumbs to their smartphone, getting "hands-on" with your food may be just what makes the meal memorable. Surpassing service makes it even more enjoyable. Some tips: if you are celebrating a special occasion let them know when making your reservation so they can prepare. Sign up on their email list to get coupons such as free chocolate covered strawberries for your birthday or anniversary. You can ask for more food items to dip in your cheese or chocolate at no charge! Save room for dessert.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 5/23/2014
    When we entered the restaurant we were met by some rude hostesses. We were finally led to a table after they figured out who we would be given to as we were only having dessert. The waitress seemed disappointed to get a water-drinking chocolate-only table but seemed to at least try to fake friendliness. We felt very rushed out of there but ended up leaving a sizeable tip as a lesson that you shouldn't judge someone on appearance alone. I was very polite despite their incompetence as my daughter enjoyed her 13th birthday with her two best friends. Our bill was $34 and we left the girl almost $17 for getting stuck with an "easy to please" group of kids.

    Our son was graduating college and we planned a few dinners out with friends. The Melting Pot was for the first night after we arrived. We were running late due to traffic and weather, when we called to see if we could delay they did with no problem. When we called back for directions from the highway Kevin was incredibly helpful and very precise with directions. After 9 hours in the car we arrived to a very warm welcome, they could not have been more accommodating! Our son and his friends arrived, Troy was our waiter. He was so patient and helpful with all of us. We all loved the cheese fondues to the desserts, everything was fantastic. We were the last to leave the restaurant! It was a wonderful start to a very special weekend! Thank you
