The Melting Pot - Irvine
GREATThe default broth tastes better than the oil, in my opinion.
It was a bit too hot when you sit at the table, probably from the heat radiated from the pot.
Everything else was perfect!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Unique ExperienceWe brought my 88 year old Mom here for Mother's Day. What a treat!
She is hard of hearing and the friendly staff saved a table for us that was very quiet and private.
The decor is dark, lush and intimate. It's sort of a labyrinth of booths going
on and on. The food was wonderful; a very unique experience.
And, aside from the dessert, very healthy. Cheese fondue, a wonderful salad, meat and vegetables
made up the first three courses of the special pris fixe menu. Dessert was a very decadent pot of chocolate into which
one dips strawberries and various confections like pound cake, brownies, etc. The dessert is OK for
a special occasion I guess, but be forewarned, it's very very rich.
All in all, a wonderful experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood + Fun = FundooUltimate social meal, cooking and talking and having a great time.

We come here at least once a month and always enjoy ourselves.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Melting Pot was a greatThe Melting Pot was a great little date night place. It was a bit noisy with a table of kids next to us but after they left it was your usual restraunt level noise. The booths are great because its nice and tucked away so it's private and romantic. We were served our courses promptly and everything was delicious. We knew going in it was going to be more expensive then a regular date night but the ambiance and food made it worthwhile. Will definitely be dining here again!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
