The Melting Pot - Larkspur
Astonishing.The food is superb, the ambiance is exquisite, the waiters are helpful and fun; there is simply no better place to get a unique and delectable dining experience north of San Francisco.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect experience!Good food, great service, nice ambiance. Highly recommend!!!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWOWWe hit The Melting Pot for our daughter's 17th birthday and it was wonderful. I recommend this as an excellent place to come for dinner or dessert, although it would be more budget-conscious to come for dessert only, plus I think I would've preferred to skip the entree as we were all pretty full after the second course (cheese fondues and then salad) and just had enough room for dessert. Most of us didn't finish our entree which was pretty pricey. Ala cart would be the way to go.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Romantic SpotMy wife and I used to come (pre-kids), but haven't found the time to get back here. After finally returning, all we can say is that it;s a great place to relax, reconnect and romantically catch up. It's hard to be anything but relaxed with the ambience and delicious food. Our server (julio) was terrific as well. We'll be back soon!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMelting Pot Larkspur, CAStaff was terrific when dealing with the multiple reservation changes I had to make due to schedule problems. We were seated slightly before our reservation time. Server was attentive, courteous, and prompt. Food was terrific. Excellent date/anniversary venue.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMLarkspur Melting PotThe building and its history make this Melting Pot a wonderful experience that goes beyond the fun of the shared fondue experience. Our favorite Melting Pot so far. They also recognized a birthday in a festive way which we appreciated.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to go here for yearsWanted to go here for years and finally made it! We loved every moment. It was a perfect date night, sat in a quiet romantic spot but there were tables appropriate for families and room for groups also. The building was fabulous, an old brick kiln. Our server was great! Thank You!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the ambiance and cave-likeLoved the ambiance and cave-like setting of this restaurant.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing placeSlightly slower service towards the end of the meal, but everything was amazing and a super polite and friendly waitress4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFun party spotMy son's favorite place to go for a celebration, friends and family always have a good time. The portions are generous, 2 of the 4 course meals plus 3 salads fed 5 of us easily. Our waiter was funny, attentive and added to the fun of the evening.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMKids loved it!My son chose The Melting Pot for his 10th Birthday celebration. It was super convenient as we took the Larkspur Ferry to the Giants game and back. However, the game was shorter than we had planned But luckily the staff was very accommodating about changing our reservation.
I don't think we would go if we didn't have our kids with us. They enjoy the novelty of it all. Unfortunately it's a little too expensive for what you get.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is outstanding. It'sFood is outstanding. It's a fine dining experience in a cave - no view except each other. Luckily, I have celebrated over 2 decades with this lovely women and am looking forward to more. Good selections for both the carnivour, vegitatrian and certainly the sweet lovers among you.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time and DanWe had a great time and Dan the waiter was the best. He took the time to give us the history of the building and was top notch.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMelting Pot recently changedMelting Pot recently changed how they portion their food, and they now serve WAY too much. We wanted all 4 courses, but the portion of meat for 2 is way too much.
Also, they really need to teach the employees how to serve wine properly. Doesn't matter if you're buying cheap wine, but when you're spending $100+ on wine, want it corked & served properly.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is awesome! WeThis place is awesome! We had a great experience ever, the food was perfect, the server was outstanding!! I definitely recommended.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat can you say - PippingWhat can you say - Pipping Hot Cheese and apples! Built into an old brick oven, it's just one of the neatest places you'll ever eat. I'm not a chain restaurant kind of person, however the Melting Pot has that special personal feel you find in Mom and Pop kind of restaurants.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFun and unique place to dineMy husband and I went here for our 9th anniversary. We love the fact that most of the restaurant is booths. I can't stand paying good money for a meal that I eat shoved up next to our dining neighbors. At melting pot you feel like you're in your own little cave. The food is really good. I love the cheese fondue and the dessert best, but the main course is good too.
The only down side is that when you first walk in, it smells like a hamster cage. But it's still worth it.
This is a fun, relaxing place to dine. We're looking forward to bringing our kids here (when they're old enough to not touch the hot pot) :)4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great. My mainThe food was great. My main criticism would be that while they tell you how long to cook the meats and veggies- they do not provide you with a timer- even two sand timers with both 2 min and 90 second intervals would work. I'm lucky that my boyfriend was wearing his only watch with a working chronograph or we would have been SOL. Since the dining areas are in caves noise carries very easily and can be awkward when you're trying to have a private conversation or avoid eavesdropping on a neighboring diner.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrate our wedding anniversarWe celebrate our wedding anniversary here every year! The restaurant staff always makes it a memorable and special event.
This time, the waiter took note of an offhand comment I made and brought extra Gorgonzola cheese for us.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time dinner the serverFirst time dinner the server walked us through the menu and recommendations. Everything was good as far as food and timing courses. I ordered a 4 course meal and found my self skipping dessert because I was too full! Will recommend to friends and will be returning soon...4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy!!!Delicious food! Great service! Wil be returning very soon!!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!We love this place for our anniversary dinner. We do it every year because it never fails us.

The staff always makes our stay special.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here for me and my boyfriendsWent here for me and my boyfriends 6th year anniversary and had the waitress Mira who had the best customer service we have ever experienced! The food was delicious! I ordered at 4-course and we managed to finish everything that was given to us. The dessert was absolutely amazing! Not too sweet, just perfect. I would recommend The Melting Pot to anyone with a real sweet tooth! We definitely will be back (but will save up because this place is pricey) :)3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur new favorite spotCame here to celebrate my husband's birthday and our last romantic dinner before the birth of our child.
