Diner Reviews
  • "Great romantic dining experience and the food was outstanding"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "My friend and I decided to come up to this location in honor of national fondue day at the last minute. Used open table for booking, sorry we were a few minutes late to our scheduled reservation time. Host was our server one man show at 430p on a Friday!!! and he did a great job as we weren't in a hurry and enjoyed our time and food."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "This is good for a nice night out but be careful you don't run out of cheese in the first course- you will have to pay $8 for more to use on the rest of your dipping sides provided. The other courses were fine and I had no other issues."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "This is a great place for something a little different and romantic. However, it is a little expensive. The pot we had also did not heat up properly."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We have always enjoyed the Melting Pot. We have been back numerous times. We prefer the cheese fondues and delicious dessert fondues, which we can always count on for being excellent. The main courses tend to be $$$ and, quite frankly, we feel they are on the bland side. So, between salads, cheese fondue, and dessert, NO ONE walks away hungry or disappointed."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Our Waitress was very nice, but was not very motivated to serve us... She told us several times that we could have more "dippers" for our cheese, more veggies for our main course, and more "dippers" for our dessert, but she was basically no where to be found.... Our cheese mixes had an overbearing taste of the beer-base for both the Swiss and Cheddar... So if she followed the recipe, the recipe is not so good... Our main course was excellent, as usual... But overall, the gaps in service from meal to meal were too wide and it caused our party to become restless, despite the fact we all went in with nothing but time on our hands, expecting a nice long evening...."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Great for special occasions. Took my granddaughter there for her 10th birthday and she loved it. Food was good, excellent service and very kid friendly. We will go back again."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "dessert is where the Melting Pot really shines - although all of our food was excellent."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "This is the one restaurant I can go to for a dining experience - no rush, savor the flavors of each course! It's awesome!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Endless menu choices with fondue. Make it to your liking by choosing your favorite foods, sauces, and cooking time. Fun with food in a great atmosphere and extends the length of your dining time from 2-3 hours. Gives you a lot of time to catch up with your someone special or get to know someone. Food is prepped perfectly before you cook it and the restaurant is extremely clean. 4 course dinner is an amazing experience. Lots of great drink choices alcoholic and non alcoholic alike. Pricey but well worth the money. My only issue is I can't afford to eat there more often! Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Our waiter David was outgoing, energetic and knowledgeable. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was very special. The food was absolutely amazing and can't wait to come back again."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "My daughters and I dined at the Melting Pot celebrating my birthday during the past week. We had a great time. Lots of conversation and laughs. It was a very special evening. Food was excellent. It was a very enjoyable experience and a nice way to end my birthday celebration."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Very solid. This place was a nice change of pace from the usual high end Italian or steak house joints. Simple concept, they prep and you cook. Wide variety of food to order...tried a three item sample dinner and it was just right. Always get dessert!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Amazing experience! Fabulous Food. Knowledgeable and friendly wait staff! Even a terrific magician stopped by (very classy-not silly-asked if we had a moment-didn't intrude)! So incredible! Can't wait to do it again!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The Melting Pot has become the place to go for my daughter's birthday celebrations! We were there this Friday celebrating my youngest daughter's 17th birthday and it was wonderful. The servers took good care of my daughter and her four friends while my wife, older daughter and I were seated in another section also enjoying our meal and melting pot experience."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This was my daughter's choice to celebrate her college scholarship. Great meal, great service and it was FUN because it was interactive. We are 4 big eaters and we ordered 3 meals and went away stuffed."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our server went above and beyond, even bringing us a small plate of chocolate-covered strawberries (no charge) because of our special occasion. Initially, the mojito that I ordered had no mint - when they asked how the drink was and I mentioned this, she noted that they were probably out of mint. Minutes later the manager came and took my drink, apologized and said that the servers didn't look hard enough. They replaced the drink promptly, and although it still wasn't sweet and didn't taste like a mojito, I appreciated the effort. The food was delicious, as usual. The only con was that the filet was tough whether cooked for 1 minute or 2, and was the worst thing on the plate. Everything else was great and we had a wonderful dinner."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "The service was vey good. Food came out in a timely manner. It was tasty! The ambiance was right for any occassion."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We arrived before our reservation time and were seated immediately. The over-sized menus were sturdy, but a nuisance for the staff to carry. With minimal instruction we were able to dip and cook in the fondue pots. The steak takes a little longer than the recommended 2 minutes if you want to minimize the red center. The mushrooms and vegetables were better raw than fried. The wait staff is particularly young and needed some prompting in clearing the glassware."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "It was an interesting experience. At first it was hard to find the entrance of the restaurant as you have to go up an escalator down the street to go up to the entrance. Once in it was fairly nice. However the food isn't that great. You definitely pay for the experience. It was a fun experience but I don't think id go back."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time celebrating our anniversary here. We were there for two hours...by choice. It was so nice not to be rushed through dinner and just relax and chat."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "celebrated anniversary with a wonderful meal i will definitely suggest to all of my friends to enjoy a fabulous meal here.i could eat the cheese and dessert everyday."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I took my girls to Melting Pot for a treat. We chose just to do salad with two Cheese fondues. For three people they brought out one small bowl of bread and two very small bowls of fruit and veggies. There were three of us and two cheese fondues. We had to wait forever to get more supplies to dip. Felt as though not getting a full meal put us at a disadvantage for service. Our waitress was nice, just very busy and not too attentive with relation to making sure we had enough dipping material. Overall VERY disappointing for the cost."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "I loved the experience! The food was tasty but I enjoyed the time spent preparing it. I love the style of the meal, and the option for the four course dinner. That made it very easy to choose what to eat, was very helpful for first time diners! The atmosphere is very well planned and the seat backs are high enough to give each table privacy, which is great for an intimate experience! it is costly but definitely worth a try! Not too big for a family dinner but great for special occasions!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My daughter and I had a reservation for 6 pm, but showed up early because we were so excited. They accommodated us right away, without hesitation. The person who seated us spent a couple minutes at our table, getting to know us and talking to us about the fondue experience. Our waiter, John, came shortly after that. He also spent a few minutes getting to know us and going into more detail about our options for dinner. He recommended non-alcoholic drinks for us, since my daughter is only 9. I always appreciate when a waiter doesn't push alcohol on me when I'm with my daughter. It was such a great experience that as I was leaving I felt like I was leaving a friend's house without saying goodbye."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We (2 adults and a 9 year old) went out specifically looking for a relaxing dinner and good food. Melting Pot delivered on all counts. The 4 course meal ended up taking 2 hours, but it didn't seem nearly that long and was thoroughly enjoyable even for the young one. Not someplace to stop for a quick bite, but excellent for a slower, relaxed night with good company"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "We love the Melting Pot! It has wonderful food even if it is a little pricey. We come here several times a year because we can't get enough. I wish it was closer to where we lived."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "Took my girlfriend there before she had to go home for a week, very romantic. We both loved it."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "A few friends met for dinner and haven't seen each other in a while. Was a perfect setting to play catch up, eat amazing food and have an enjoyable dining experience."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Had a great time, good waiter. We ate in an area that was pretty dark. The area was great, romantic, but needed better lighting. We couldn't read the menue. We lit up our area with an Iphone app. Food was great. We had a great evening. Thanks"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "This was my first visit-great food and service. The menu was hard to read since the light at our booth was not centrally located."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We really enjoyed celebrating a special birthday at the Melting Pot. The food was excellent and we felt the prices were very good. Our server was very knowledgeable and guided us through the menu. Both the maitre d' and the server recognized the special event we were celebrating, and also delivered a signed card. The only drawback was the noise level. We heard all about the love life of the gal at the next table. Not sure if it was her volume level or the acoustics of the place."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "My wife have dined here several times however this time I was disappointed. The service was ok at best. Waiter was not very friendly or helpful. The food was less than what we have had in the past. I'll think twice before going back again."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "If you are looking for something different, this is a nice place to try. We went with friends and had fun tasting the different menu options. Not an everyday dining spot, but fun for a change."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great place to take a group of people that like adventure and something different."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "How awesome. The food was great, but you cook it yourself so it should be exactly how you want it. The staff is amazing, very kind and engaging. David was the best ever. Our party was there 4 hours eating, laughing, and dipping away. Very appropriate for adults and children. I highly recommend this restaurant and location. One of the best dining experiences I've had. Would love to dine there again, and, again, and again."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Fantastic restaurant experience and already planning on going again soon! Menu appears complicated at first, but the staff are extremely helpful with recommendations that can be tailored to your group or individual preferences. Love the ability to choose between a one or up to a four course meal. Probably the most challenging parts are deciding which cheese/cooking style to enjoy especially with more than two people. If you're a larger party you have the fortune of a table with two cooking surfaces allowing you more diversity. Not to mention the ambiance is great for a romantic night out or even a relaxed family dinner. Stress just melts away as you can cook your food to perfection!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Thumbs up for the entire experience. Only thing I would consider changing is to add a little more light at the tables and for future Diners...I do not think this is a place for kids."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "First time diners, Our waiter made us feel relaxed and was very informative and helpful for us in making our menu selections. We had a very nice unique dinning experience,"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The food, the service, the atmosphere was all WONDERFUL! The overall experience was great. I loved the way the courses were spaced and our server was excellent and very patient with us! I will definitely be returning!"
