    we enjoyed ourselves although our waitress rushed us through the process bringing one course before we were finished with the first and having us look over and select the desert before we began our salads.

    We had a good experience at the Melting Pot. I will say that we had the displeasure of finding a hair in our food, however, they apologized and I do realize that things like that happen. I have had a few issues at this particular restraunt, but the management is fabulous and they do anything to take care of the problems. I will continue to visit this restraunt even though we have had some problems.

    I celebrated my birthday there on Sunday, May 4th with my husband and 3 children. The Melting Pot is the first choice of my children for a special occasion night out. The food was excellent and service was very good. Our waitress was very nice. The only "issue" encountered was we had ordered a small Yin and Yang chocolate and a large milk chocolate fondue. We were served the correct Yin and Yang, but a SMALL DARK chocolate fondue.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 4/21/2008
    I would suggest not eating anything at least six hours before your meal if you plan on eating the full four course meal. Set aside about three hours to finish your meal and don't plan much afterwards because you will be too full to do anything. The whole experience is fun and its great with a group of people and don't skip the best part which is the chocolate fondu.On a side note if you love wine they have an IMPRESSIVE wine list.

    Our hostess was rude. She seated us at a table for 2 although we were a party of 4. Then, we were made to get up and proceed back to the lobby to wait for a table for 4. It was quite embarrassing and awkward. Our waitress, Tara, upsold us on everything from drinks to dessert fondue. Overall, I found it to be a VERY expensive, unenjoyable evening. At almost $150 per person, I could certainly have done better at a number of other restaurants. I won't be back and I won't recommend it to my friends.

    Next time I go back, if I go back, it will be cheese and chocolate only. That portion of the meal was quite good. However, the salad & main course were nothing worth recommending to others. I have had much better tasting food at much nicer restaurants for a better price. Overall, I was very disappointed. Oh, and I ordered a pineapple mojito and I think the bartender forgot to add alcohol. Can't say as I would recommend this to others. The server was very good though. She was very personable.

    Dined on 4/14/2008
    I'll always love The Melting Pot, but in the last year or so since our last visit, the place seems to have changed. I can't quite put my finger on why or what, but the feeling that it used to have is not quite as strong. My wife and I used to go because of the wonderful food and quite, romantic atmosphere. But a lot of ambiance seems to be gone now. The restaurant was much louder then usual, the other patrons included young children and people in very casual dress. I mean, the place was never formal, but you generally didn't see a lot of people in a sweat shirt and jogging pants, or with 8 year old kids. Also, it seems as if the cheese portions have been slightly reduced, although we were told it has not. But still a nice restaurant.

    Very romantic environment made the night very memorable. I would definitely go again. I had never had Fondue before and it was very fun! My initial impression with the prices made me a little hesitant, but my waiter, the food, and the ambiance more than made it worth it. I would say this place is made for dates or celebrations that you would want to be memorable and/or romantic. Thanks for the experience, Marion Owen

    Dined on 3/28/2008
    Overall, value to price continues to decline. Started with switch away from fresh Publix bread several years ago. Seems like business is focused on squeezing everything for margin; not a high quality dining experience. Had "Surf and Turf" as one entree; the few little pieces of beef and small lobster tails was a joke for $75. Portions have definitely declined (cheese, salads, meats, etc.); meat quality seems ok. Total bill was $300+ without tip for four and one child. We frequent good restaurants and I'm happy to pay, but this wasn't even close to satisfactory. I was impressed that the manager remembered us and my preferences from past visits....

    Dined on 3/15/2008
    The manager Brad was not good for business. He fussed with my husband and I about seating arrangements for our group. We had four couples who paid approx. $150 each for their meal and he did not want to set it up so we would be with our spouse during a date night. We had to bunch up around 3 pots to eat. This was a mess. Not a very good experience for the price we paid. We eat at Melting Pot at least once per month. Due to this experience I plan to write the headquarters and not go there for awhile. This was one of the worst experiences I have had since 2000 at a resturant. However, our waiter was GREAT, he helped us make the best of our evening. Dr. Trina Wilson

    We like the Melting Pot because it is usually a long dinner. We were rushed this time to accomodate others who arrived and didn't have reservations even though we did. We specifically asked for a romantic two top but were seated at a four top. The food was really good and the experience was positive. Next time we will visit the one in Alpharetta and not the one in Kennesaw. We have been 2 for 2 at the Alpharetta location and this one just wasn't up to par with that one. The experience was not as romantic as we had hoped and we didn't enjoy feeling like we were being hurried. This was our celebration of our first wedding anniversary.
