    I'm sure this is a fit for many but not "my cup of tea." The filet was very nice but others in my group did not think much of the other meats nor vegetables. $127. For two people with one glass of wine. Been there, done that....probably can't afford the t-shirt.

    We really enjoyed The Melting Pot. Every course was very well done. It was a little confusing at first but our server, Josh, was very good at explaining how things go. So many delicious foods--filet mignon, lobster, shrimp, mushrooms, etc. Only the chicoken was just so -so. Everything else was so good. We were also very impressed with the salads. It's hard to suggest, but I suspect each offering is the same high quality. The yin yang chocolate was out of this world, with so many things to dip--strawberries, rice krispies bars (amazingly good!), marshmallows (also surprisingly good-- I don't usually like them), brownies, and more. Gosh, it was great. Also a very romantic atmosphere. I can't wait to do it again.

    The waiter was not as helpful with helping us understand the menu and/or explaining what the best option for us would be. We celebrated a birthday there and The manager was terrific and came by the table wishing us a happy birthday, etc etc! The food was EXCELLENT!!! I would definitely recommend especially the yingyang fondue dessert!!

    Overall it was ok. Thank goodness for good company and great atmosphere. For the price paid, I would liked to have not feel rushed out the next time I visit. I feel like the server was constantly taking away our food items before we could even finish and he brought the tab when the dessert came out (not after, not during, but before we even got started on the 4th course). Then he was constantly checking to see if I had paid yet. For somewhere like that, I don't want to feel rushed. Also, the amount of Chocolate at the end wasn't even enough to actually "fondue" and we had to ask for more because we basically had to scrap the sides of the pot and toss and turn the item to get enough chocolate on it. Other than those 2 things, good place.

    Great for cheese and wine before a show, or dessert after a show. Dinner was fantastic, very tasty. It's a little difficult to keep track of what has been in for how many minutes. After the first bite, you spend 2 minutes salivating until your next bite of filet is cooked. Hahaha, but it's well worth the wait! There are so many options and cooking styles....I can't wait to go back and try different combinations. The serving staff really knows what they are doing. Great for a party of 2 or 4, might be harder to agree on options with more than 4 people. I highly recommend making The Melting Pot a part of date night, even if it's just for wine and cheese, or just for dessert.

    The food was delicious as always, but the prices went up and the portion sizes went down so we likely won't return. Our surver Ashley, was unfriendly, rude, and rushed us the whole night. It was not the melting pot experience we were hoping for.

    One of my wife's favorite places to eat. It was nice to be able to add the birthday card and flowers and have them already at the table when we arrived. Food was so good (as always). Would have liked dimmer lighting as we are used to the Melting Pot location in Charlotte which has very private tables and very dim lighting. Overall it was a great night out.

    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.

    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.
