    Our server, Mike, was A+! Very attentive with great suggestions for drinks & dinner choices. We were celebrating our son's 13th b-day & Mike was so kind to wish him well when we arrived and when we finshed our meal. We highly recommend the Melting Pot. It is a great way to spend the evening with friends.

    Food was excellent, service was great, waiter was very friendly and fun and helpful. Went out for a girls' night birthday dinner and we had a lot of fun and enjoyed the fondue experience. The lobster cheese fondue and pumpkin pie white chocolate fondue specials were wonderful. The Dark and Dulce fondue was one of our favorites too. The cocktails were great too! Definitely will come back again for another celebration.

    One suggestion is to have "cheat sheets" on each table about the cooking time for the meats and vegetables. Yes, the server went over them, but by the time the meats came we were second guessing ourselves as to what she said about each different kind of meat.

    First time to Melting Pot in about a year and there were definitely some changes! Fondue was better than ever, but the dippers were lacking. They no longer serve cauliflower or cheesecake with the cheese and chocolate fondues, and the amount of dippers you receive has been decreased. It took a while to track someone down for refills during fondue time, and by the time the refills reached your table, the fondue was too hot to eat! Usually the temperature of the fondue gets adjusted as you eat so it doesn't get too hot. Overall fun, and the pricing is easier (it is now priced per person) but changes have definitely been made!

    We have been to the Melting Pot a few times before, and really enjoyed it. The food was plentiful, service was great, and the experience was very relaxing. Unfortunately that was not the case this time. The quantity of food appears to have decreased (while the prices definitely have not), and while you used to be able to relax and enjoy refills of the vegetables and potatoes that go with your entree, we felt pressured to finish our main course and get to dessert. Overall, the food was still good, it just was not quite the experience we remember from before, and we were a little annoyed at what we see as an attempt to make just a little more profit at the expense of a better experience.

    Surprised the wife for our anniversary. chose the teddy bear package, i figured roses die but a teddy bear will last for a long long time. it is a nice little bear, nothing big. Our server was great, his name is Bobby Joe, ask for him, he made the night even better. Nice night out, relaxed, don't go if you r in a hurry as it isn't a fast paced dinner, and i don't think it is really kid friendly although we did see some young children there. it is a bit pricey but worth it for the memories, it will definitely be rememberable for you as it isn't your typical sit down dinner. will do this yearly for our anniversary!

    We dined here for our wedding anniversary, as we've done now for the past 6 years. Always a pleasure. It's a fun atmosphere, service at this particular location has always been enjoyable. Just a lovely evening.....however, I will say, we noticed the portion sizes seemed somewhat smaller, though the prices are not.......just saying. Will recommend this restaurant and will definitely return!

    The Melting Pot is like a white man's version of Hot Pot. The Melting Pot is probably the reason why I stay away from franchises. If you want the real deal, check out any type of Mongolian Hot Pot and you'll never look back. Don't get me wrong, the service was great but my palate is far too mature for the offerings of mediocracy as offered at not just this specific location, but The Melting Pot in general.

    We booked a table for 9:15, but were left standing in the foyer area until 9:40 - with lots of other couples and groups. The front desk staff were completely useless. We had not been to the restaurant before, and were not familiar with the menu or fondue cooking process ... but no staff or our (vanishing) server bothered to enlighten us. The food was good, once it arrived (around 10:15 - which was an hour after our booking). We won't be going back.

    We went to the Melting Pot during Main Line Restaurant Week and enjoyed a four course dinner. Our server, Ben, was very pleasant and efficient and helped to make it a memorable evening. The cheese fondue for the first course was delicious which was followed by a fresh and tasty salad. For the main course I ordered the seafood platter which was excellent. The other people at the table ordered a selection of different meats and shrimp. The optional chocolate fondue for $5 is really worth it!

    Perhaps the most off putting was the smell of the interior... since everyone is cooking at their own table, it smelled like you were standing over a stockpot. The fondue experience was different, kind of fun - something out of the ordinary. But if you're going for really good food, forget it. The wait staff prepares the fondue for your tableside, but they don't ask how much of anything you want, they just dump the premeasured ingredients in to the pot, and it's a WHOPPING amount of garlic. The steak came completely covered and crusted with peppercorns, also overwhelming. So, we really didn't enjoy our meal at all. Dessert? That was great. And WHOA - pricey!!

    We keep coming back. It is a little pricey but we love the unique and fun atmosphere. Start with a choice off cheese fondue which is mixed table side (ours had Yuengling in it)...served with a selection of breads, fruits and veggies to dip. Yum. Then a choice of delicious salads. We were allowed to substitute to make our entrees just what we wanted. We picked a broth in which to cook our meats. Again, yum. A lot of work, delicious and served with potatoes and broccoli. FYI, a kids menu is available which is less seasoned and priced right for smaller, pickier palates. For dessert we decided on the peanut butter and chocolate fondue served with fruit, cakes and lots of other dipping goodies, which hit the spot. We will definately return.

    In celebration of our 8th Anniversary Grant and I could not have asked for a more perfect dining experience. We arrived a few mins early for our reservation and after being greeted very warmly by the host & hostess we chose to sit at the quaint bar for a well made martini. The bartender was extremely friendly and after a very brief bar stay we where greeted once more by the hostess and escorted to our table. The waiter was most kind and extremely friendly towards us. Grant and I ordered the lobster and filet and being first timers he was full of suggestions and recommendations that did totally enhanced our dining experience and complimented our delicious mea. Everything was wonderful. And we definitely will return to the Melting Pot!
