Diner Reviews
  • "We had a group of four people and we all THOROUGHLY enjoyed our experience. It was a leisurely meal and we had an excellent waiter who was very friendly. Would highly recommend!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This was our first time here. The atmosphere and food was excellent, our server recommended the loaded baked potato fondue as an appetizer and it was incredible. The staff was very friendly and attentive, including the two young gentlemen that were bussing tables. Our server was Blair, very friendly, explained everything to us and made recommendations. The Melting Pot is definitely a restaurant that we will be visiting again."

  • "I arranged a surprise birthday dinner for my daughter & friends at the Melting Pot this past weekend. The restaurant did a great job handling my requests. The girls said the food was very good. They especially loved the dark chocolate fondue with raspberries. Service was excellent. Waiter was very attentive and made the evening even more fun for the girls! I'd highly recommend the Melting Pot for a group dinner!!"

  • "It's a great place to sit and talk while having fun cooking your food. You don't feel rushed and can enjoy the whole moment. Second time there can't wait to take my kids the next time. I brag about it and they are jealous."

  • "Had a wonderful time at the Melting Pot, as always! The food and service was great and you can't beat the 'two can dine for $69' special! The one thing that I would've preferred is if it weren't so dark in the restaurant. My date and I had to use the flashlight on our phones to see if our meat was cooked all the way through. I thought my eyes would adjust after being there a while, but it was still a bit too dark. Otherwise, a great experience!"

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated our anniversary there after hearing about it from friends and we had a wonderful time. The food wasn't an every day experience so it was definitely something new. We will go back again."

  • "This was my third time coming here and honestly this place never let's me down!! Perfect place for a romantic dinner!"
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We were glad that we had a half-price coupon because the food wasn't worth what we paid for the coupon plus the cost of the tip. I would have been very upset had we paid full price. The server and every person that we came in contact with were very nice and very helpful, but the service is not enough to for us to make return visit. Maybe I should have investigated "cooking fondue-style" more thoroughly or checked for reviews before purchasing the coupon."

  • "My daughter and I often head to The Meltimg Pot when we want a slow paced meal which is one of the best parts of dining here. Our waiter was fun, the food right on, and we'll be back again soon."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "I had heard so much hype about this place and truthfully, it was just OK. Nothing grand. Fondue was very good. Not sure about the cooking method for the entrée portion, it was slow and the flavor was just not what I thought it would be. I got three pieces of vegetable with dinner, left me wanting more dinner. Not sure it was worth the money. Weird booths made me feel like I was in a box. I could not see 99% of the restaurant, so I cannot judge anything in that category."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We make a reservation yearly for our wedding anniversary. The fondues are the absolute best!! The service is fantastic! The chocolate covered strawberries makes the occasion just that more special to us. We love talking to the staff and get them to laugh with us. When you enjoy the restaurant, the staff appreciates what they do to make it special. We will be back!!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "My wife and I have made this our regular spot for our Anniversary dinner. The restaurant always makes sure that we are well taken care of and that the night is very special. We also like to get together here with other couples a couple times a year for a nice night out."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This is always a really nice experience. It's great to have a variety with the fondue choices."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Took my son here for his birthday and had a great time. Kids love cooking their food and the variety you get by sharing meals. Can be expensive if you each order a meal. We ordered three combos for five people and had food leftover and the price was reasonable. They even had a magician on Saturday night that was very entertaining."

  • "Had never had the pleasure of a meal at this restaurant before and we enjoyed ourselves. I will say I was a bit taken aback by having to "cook" our own meats and it did lend to the overall length of the meal but other than that it was a very enjoyable meal and Princess experience."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Took my 4 year old daughter for lunch at the Melting Pot for the Fairytale lunch, Elsa from frozen was the guest Princess. My sever was amazing. She was so patient, everything was hot and came in a timely fashion."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "My kids had a great time, but I was a little dissapointed in the amount of fruit they gave to dip (5 apple pieces and grapes for 4 people) and that only Elsa was there when it said Frozen sisters."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "his restaurant is it good for special occasions over a little getaway. It is pricey, but very fun and interactive. The food was excellent. One note is that shrimp was cleaned properly... which is not very appetizing."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Great food, nice ambiance, a complete experience. A bit pricey for us so definitely a special occasion place for us!"
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I would highly recommend The Melting Pot. We were there on the 18th of June for our 26th wedding anniversary and everything was great, from the awesome service to the wonderful food. We will be back and will recommend them."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "I think a lot of the fun and ambience of the experience comes from the waiters or waitresses."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our second time at the Melting Pot First experience was a few yrs back and OUTSTANDING. This time we came across a Groupon and when mentioned to our server there was distance immediately made. NOT knowing of course, she was waiting on two people who are servers, one of which has made a career of it. Nothing was prebussed on the table, There were unlimited veggies and she wasn't around to ask for more. Personality was somewhat standoffish however we believe wholeheartedly in tipping 20% of the total of bill, more IF deserved. She got 20%...there was no enthusiasms in her job or sincerity in her service. Did not go to rate the server but when we BOTH noticed,then it was too obvious. Steak were just OK Thankyou for asking"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "A special-themed "Italian" 4 course meal with wine pairings made this visit especially enjoyable, with a mix of both traditional fondue plus prepared food at a great price. Melting Pot is reliably good for providing fresh food in a relaxing atmosphere with very attentive service. The only negatives are that, in spite of reservations, we seem to always have to wait up to 1/2 hour past our reserved time before we are seated, even during "off hour" times. Another negative is that this particular venue is located in an extremely busy shopping area where parking is next to impossible without using the general valet service, which is pretty pricey. Melting Pot should provide dinner customers with a voucher to pay for the valet."

  • "I love my experience. I went with my co workers and we loved it. This was our first time there. The food was excellent and on a timely manner. "
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "we had reservations for 7:30 but waited till 8 before we could sit. The only issue was the lack of communication from the host/hostess. A few comments on timing, when, etc would have gone a long way versus just ignoring us like we were there just to make it difficult for her. Food was great. Service from Jacqulyn, was terrific. we wanted at the end of the meal for her to return..that was a little ackward. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We love the melting pot, and this visit was very good as usual. We really enjoy the new menu where everyone orders their own entree, premium dippers, drink menu, etc. However we were very disappointed to see the no longer have the Wisconsin Trio cheese! We have loved this for so long and the other cheeses just don't compare. Also this location never seems to have the specials listed on their online menu. They used to do the Big Night Out which gave you a chance to try something seasonal and different which they no longer offer. They usually have a list of seasonal cheese and dessert specials online, but the last three visits they were "all out" or "in between specials". Either way it's a great time and very good food and service."

  • "We are borderline regulars at the Melting Pot. It is our go-to special occasion spot. The food is consistently excellent and the staff is fun and courteous. Very LGBT friendly, we went for our anniversary and had no problems, not even second glances. It's my favorite place to go, and I highly recommend it (and their chocolate dipped strawberries are out of this world!)."

  • "Had dinner for my daughters 18th Birthday. From the moment we arrived she felt special as she was greeted with a Happy Birthday as well as our waiter being very attentive and making her feel special. Thank you for a special night to remember! "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "While the food was as good as it always has been, the restaurant could use a good cleaning. Not sure if it was just our table or not, but after sitting down, my wife got something gross looking on her hand and her side of the booth. Needed to flag someone down to attempt to clean it up and at first they sort of looked like we were crazy for asking for the table to be cleaned or find us a new one. Not sure if they were trying to turn the tables over too quickly or why it was so badly missed. After the initial issues that almost caused us to leave it was a nice evening with good food."
