The Melting Pot - Kansas City
1st AnniversaryWe went to The Melting Pot for our first anniversary. It was a fantastic experience. The only recommendation that I would give is to pace yourself if you do the four course. If you eat all of the bread and cheese, and devour your salad, you will be full by the time the main course gets there. We all know that if you are full at the main course, there is no room for dessert.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful all around!We had a great service team who did a wonderful job of taking care of us. The food quality and variety was superb and we had a truly enjoyable evening.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Ladies' Night!For the past two years, The Melting Pot has been a favorite of several on our teaching staff on Monday nights. We have always been treated well by our servers, especially with our special requests. It's fun, delicious food! Love the garlic-wine seasoning and the pine nuts! Always an enjoyable night out.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSo much fun!I had been wanting to go for a long time and waited for a special occassion! The food was delicious and I would definitely recommend doing the four course meal. Our server was also great and had good recommendations.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a good experienceAlways quality food, fairly good value. Remember when making reservations, some tables allow one fondue pot and some tables have room for two. If you want more than one cheese/cooking style/chocolate, make sure you ask for a table with more than one burner. We always find we need to order more food, but each meat is available a la carte for a reasonable amount.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLong dinning, but long FUN dinning!We had the four course. It took 3 hours!!! But I've never laughed so hard for so long. I was with my four children: 17,15,13 &11.... My advice to you is the advice I received from our server...." leave your phone off, and be present." Wise man. Thanks MP.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great ExperienceIt was our first time there. We went there for my husband's birthday lunch....just the 2 of us. The food was delicious and it was nice that we could share an entrée because one serving was enough for us. The server was excellent. Being our first time there, she explained everything about the experience. I want to go back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch more than I expectedWe had always been skeptical of what this would be like, but got an opportunity to try this thanks to a gift certificate won during Restaurant Week. I'm now sorry I waited to try this. We both did the four course meal. We started off with the Wisconsin cheese fondue, which is chedddar and blue cheeses mixed which provided a great flavor mix. The salad was your standard salad, but the house dressing was excellent. We both got was the Sea and Land, which includes filet steak, seasoned chicken, and three shrimp. and basic cooking method (seasoned chicken stock) was probably the best choice for our first time. The dipping sauces were excellent. The dark chocolate fondue for dessert was also quite excellent. A great dining experience.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Dining experienceMy husband and I booked a reservation for a long over due date night. He really wasn't looking forward to it since the one and only time he had been was with a big group and he felt it was kind of gross for everyone to dip the fondue fork into the same pot. I believe he has changed his mind. We had a great time. Very romantic. Service was great. We had a little bit of confusion on our wine selection but got it cleared up. Thanks for a wonderful evening.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the food and serviceLoved the food and service that we received while at The Melting Pot. Definitely recommend getting the "Cheddar" cheese. DELICIOUS! We had fun with the whole dining experience. :)4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Melting Pot KC alwaysThe Melting Pot KC always impresses me. Every time my wife and I go, we have awesome service. There is a pretty large selection of items on the menu (as far as cooking styles and what you are cooking) and prices are very good for the amount of time spent ing hte restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter,Gabe was a goodOur waiter,Gabe was a good conversationalist and made the evening fun.
The rose with a birthday card at the table was a nice touch and the food is always excellent.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSome recent menu changes haveSome recent menu changes have been made, but it's still a fun and tasty treat. The menu tends toward the expensive side, so we keep this a special occasion location. Great & friendly service!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGood special occasion spot.Good special occasion spot. My boyfriend was a little put out that we had to wait 10 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation and were told when we arrived that we would be seated right away. Our waiter was personable but may have been new as he seemed a lirt nervous and spilled a few times. Still, we had a great, romantic, leisurely meal, which is just what we hoped for. I think next time we'll try to avoid prom night, though. The place was crawling with obnoxious teenagers. Lol! Nothing the restaurant could do about that.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery time we meet at MeltingEvery time we meet at Melting Pot, it is always fantastic!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was a liitle toOur waiter was a liitle to flirty.

The food menu has really great food as well.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat funHad a wonderful time at the Melting Pot, it was a perfect evening of good food and great experience. Our server was very nice and took good care of us. At first I was taken back on the prices on the menu, but when push came to shove, it was totally worth it. Our night will actually be a night to be remembered. One problem we did run in to was the table was at one time out of order, and we were the first patrons to be back on it. The only issue we had was the cleaniness on top of the table and around the table. Other than that, we had a wonderful experience.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I went to TheMy friends and I went to The Melting Pot for a girls-night-out. We had a great time.

The food was delicious, the atmosphere is great. PERFECT!!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation for 6pm,We had a reservation for 6pm, but weren't seated until 7pm - and seated in a booth that didn't work for us (the table was almost as high as my mother's neck), not to mention it left no elbow room. We asked to be re-sat at a table but were told there was nothing available. There were numerous empty tables throughout, so we're left confused at the long wait at the beginning and not being sat at an alternate place. So we asked to speak to a manager. After explaining our frustration he said he would see what he could do. He came back and after making sure we knew he had to "change a whole bunch of stuff around, call upcoming reservations", etc., they moved to us to an empty table. Luckily, everything from that point on was amazing.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat I've been several timesGreat I've been several times ..need more cheese..3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic! Pricey but a funFantastic! Pricey but a fun experience for a getaway. The new menu choices was a big hit.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!!!First time going to The Melting Pot, and I already want to go back! I went with one of my best friends and had an awesome experience. Our server was extremely personable and acted like he actually cared. We went for my birthday and he wished me a happy birthday multiple times. Our orders came out very quickly, with hardly any waiting. Overall EXCELLENT experience and will definitely go again. Oh another reccomendation if you aren't into meat don't get their four course meal its slightly pricey. My friend and i both got the regular cheese appetizer then a house salad and the flaming turtle ( which is like milk chocolate with carmelized nuts on top, SO GOOD) and it ended up being like $25 a person which i thought was very reasonable!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience! Loved theGreat experience! Loved the food and since it was our first time there the waiter was great to explain it all to us.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRelationship Building TimeThis was the first time bringing our kids (ages 9 and 12) with us to the Melting Pot. An endless fondue special was a special event on our "staycation" this spring break. Service was great, enviornment perfect for sitting down and spending time talking with friends/family, a little pricey but worth it for building relationships or celebrating special occasions. Great experience to give kids but prefer just going with adult friends and family.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was special. Our serverIt was special. Our server Jeff was great. But even more so the new GM John stopped by our table and we had a most enjoyable chat. We like the Melting Pot, the food/experience is always good but staff taking the time to chat made that evening particularly special. It was great.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went to TheMy wife and I went to The Melting Pot for our first anniversary. We had never been before but were familiar with the style/gimmick. Our server, Nathan, was extremely helpful in explaining the specifics of our dining experience i.e. what we were to share (cheese, cooking style, and chocolate) and what we would choose individually (salad and meat choice) so it didn't seem as difficult if still a little strange. We did end up choosing only one meat selection between the two of us which ended up being enough food with all the other courses. The Melting Pot is not the kind of place we'd go to frequently as it is a little higher in price, but certainly a great place to go on occasions.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
