The Melting Pot - Kansas City
Birthday LunchMade a reservation for a belated burthday celebration and requested a special gift and card. We arrived very early yet were promptly seated with the special gift and card in place. The waiter did an excellent job educating us as to the method of fondue. We chose the 4 course option and enjoyed not only the food and service but the pace of the meal, neccesitated by the fondue process. I would recommend, and have recommended already, The Melting Pot to friends. It was an enjoyable experience.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery romanticWe had a wonderful private room for our 30th anniversary , and could not be happier. The food was outstanding as usual. We could not have hoped for a better experience!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI love going to the MeltingI love going to the Melting Pot! The food is always delicious and for a romantic or even just a fun food evening it is worth the price!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable pace and aVery enjoyable pace and a great evening for a special occasion (child's 21st Birthday). For a first time visitor, the menu was a little confusing, but quickly made clear by advice from our waitress. The menu is pricey, but off-set by the adventure and conversation while cooking your food.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timerMy experience was wonderful! Totally exceeded all my expectations! Highly recommended for special occasions!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a Great Way to Celebrate!The Melting Pot in KC is AMAZING! My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary by eating out here and it did not disappoint! Highly recommend going here for special occasion. The staff were so nice and the food was amazing.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely FabulousThis was my second dining experience at the melting pot. It was again a great experience.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!The food and service was great! Fun experience. Will definitely go again soon!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA good restaurant with a uniqueA good restaurant with a unique approach to food preparation and service. Our waiter, Becky, was very informative, and helpful in choosing courses, cooking sauces and how the process worked overall. We enjoyed her service to us. The variety of food to share was wonderful, the salads were very tasty and the chocolate desserts were delicious (as one of us said, we should have started with the chocolate sauces).6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary TreatWe went here for our 2 year anniversary. Strangely enough we felt like the portions did not justify the price but you could pick extra desserts for free which helped fill us up. The price will be what holds us back from coming again but it was a nice treat for our special occasion.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing serviceI continue to be impressed every time I eat here. The food is amazing and the service is great, I love it here! I will definitely be back!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMNot the same, but still niceWe've been going to some independent fondue places on the coast lately but The Melting Pot was near our celebration location. It has changed quite a bit since the last time we were at one of their locations. While the pricing and portion changes are appreciated, the salad wasn't anything special and the oil was barely hot enough to cook but not hot enough to get a good brown color on the tempura.
It was not a very busy evening and yet we were seated next to another party that was using a totally different (and fragrant) style of cooking....which really violated our enjoyment of the final chocolate course.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FunThis was the first time I had been and my friend and I had a super time. The waiter was more than willing to tell us what was available and everything was delicious. I would certainly return. It does take about 2 hours to eat but you don't notice the time. You have many choices and all were yummy5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Great place for a special occasion or just because. Wait staff is friendly and helpful.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing ExperienceWe enjoyed a quiet corner booth during a getaway weekend in Kansas City. The ambiance was perfect, the meal was a fantastic four course experience, and we had over the top service from our waiter, John.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPICTURETHE PICTURE WE GOT WAS NOT AS GOOD AS WE HAD HOPED.. A LITTLE BLURRIE.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverpricedFood was way overpriced especially since you have to cook it yourself!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSO GOOD! Server was greatSO GOOD! Server was great and super-accommodating for my 15 month old!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery awesome, but priceyI did the romance package for my fiancé and it was awesome. $35 bar credit plus a secluded booth for 2 and roses with candlelight. The booth was seperate and no one can see you, there is also a curtain you can pull across. The food was awesome did the 4 course meal. It is definitely for special occations though because for the 2 of us it was well over $200. We definitely had a good time and I would like like to go back, but it certainly is expensive. I would reccomend the 4 course and just take in the full experience. It is all really good. Cheese, the salad, we just got the normal oil and its fantastic bc your food has spices on it and they give u a lot of dips, and the chocolate is to die for. We got the chocolate peanut butter and wow!!!5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!Took my daughter for the first time, my friend who was having a birthday, her daughter, and some recent grads to celebrate. Our server, Ari(?), was phenomenal! She remembered us from our last visit and took excellent care of all of our first-timers. We love coming here! Amazing food, and we appreciate the menu accommodations. Love Ladies' Night!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe perfect dateI wanted to surprise my girlfriend with a fact dinner (since we had never had a fancy date yet) so my mind emediatly went To the melting pot. I knew the service would be increadable and the food would be outstanding, and boy was a right. My greatest concern was the fact that it could have been awkward conversation wise with my girlfriend because it wa a totally different scene then we were use to, thankfully our lovely waitress made it feel so comfortable that there was no sense of awkwardness. I would defenatly suggest the melting pot, if you are looking for a fancy, to anyone and everyone.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA dining experienceWe went to The Melting Pot to celebrate a graduation and birthday with a group including 2 adolescents, 2 50-something parents, and 2 senior grandparents. Unlike a typical restaurant where the dining itself is an individual activity, the fondue dinner provided for lots of interaction, conversation, humor among all of us. Truly a dining experience!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AM1st 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 AMExcellent service!Our waitress was so knowledgeable about all of the food, the prices, how to fix the fondue, and just how to treat customers right. She gave us a glass of champagne on the house because we were celebrating our anniversary. Everything was great!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved it!My hubby took me for my birthday. And it was amazing. The service was wonderful, the place was beautiful, and the food was outstanding. It was expensive. But we were both so full when we left that we could have exploded. We took desert home. All in all i had a fantastic time. Kasi was our server and shs was great!5/16/2013 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 AMGreat Mother's Day LunchWonderful food and experience. Only complaint was our waitress wanted to rush the entree course. Took my fondue fork to put my mom's shrimp in to cook because she wasn't getting there fast enough. Rushed us to choose our chocolate. Tried to take our entree when we still had skewers and food in it.. Rather annoying, but otherwise a great time.5/12/2013 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 AMFirst timer and coming backAte here for the first time and took the teens who complained the entire time while we drove there. Parking is always a problem on the plaza but we got a spot right in front of the building. We had made a reservation online and they found it right away. Seated quickly and then service was a little slow getting started. We were hungry so really wanted food right away. It probably took about 20 mins before we saw any food. After it got going all went fine And the other courses came out just fine. Refills were a little slow in coming out or even noticing, but they did come eventually. Food was great, liked the staff. By the end of the evening everyone was happy and wanted to come 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.

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.
