Diner Reviews
  • "This place is great! Our server was so energetic & knowledgable, you could tell she loves her job. I have a shellfish allergy and they were more than accommodating by allowing us to substitute this for that and made sure the broths we were cooking in did not have any fish stock. We will definitely come back!"

  • "The food was great, as always. Service was poor. We waited on everything. We had to ask for refills instead of being offered. It took 3 hours for 2 people to eat. We saw a couple that arrived while we were eating our entree leave before use. We waited 17 minutes for our server to take our entree plates away after we were done. We have gone there every year for our anniversary. Not anymore."

  • "Great food, excellent service, grateful for the 2 for $59 deal! Our reservation was right on time, and everything about our experience was very nice."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "The two-for-$69 meal with wine is a good value; the fixed price menu contains good food choices, and the pinot noir wine we chose was a cut above average."

  • "Went for a special event at the restaurant, we were seated right away, served immediately, and everything was great. This is a fun restaurant for families and has also been a great date night spot. The tables are pretty secluded. We will definitely be back!"

  • "took my parents and our two tweens on a saturday night. did not wait for our table. seated in a quieter room. wonderful server. delicious food. great for a special occasion."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I love going to melting pot for special occasion dinners or every once on a while for something different. Unfortunately, this last time the waitress was in such a rush to turn her tables that as we were just starting one course she was bringing the next. When I asked if we could have a little time she immediately had an attitude."

  • "My waiter was amazing. He was so friendly and helpful on showing us what to do considering it was our first time there. My mom had a great birthday present. She loved it there! Thank you David!"

  • "I went to the melting pot with 3 of my friends the other night. We made a reservation online that afternoon for 8:00 pm. We got to the restaurant right at 8 hoping to get seated, but were thouroghly annoyed when a table was not ready until 9:15...what's the point of making a reservation? Other than that setback, we had a great time. The food was awesome and our waiter really added to the experience. We got the Quattro formaggio cheese and the flaming turtle chocolate and it was all delicious! I would recommend dining here, just don't be in a hurry."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I have been to many melting pots and this one is just ok. Server was very disinterested in what he was doing. Barely talked really. Manager came around asking how things were. We explained that the amount of food/veggies we got was much less than what we had gotten in past experiences. Told us she would bring another bowl of veggies and never did. When we asked the server he said she is too busy. For the cost this is the first time that melting pot wasn't worth it."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "I have been there for dessert before and knew that I loved that, so I bought a groupon for dinner and salad courses. We also got the Quatro cheese. Definitely a lot of food, plenty to leave satisfied, even if they did give us a smaller portion because of the groupon (which I don't think they did). Our waiter was fantastic, very informative and fun. The only think that the boy did not like was that, because we came in as a couple, they put us in a very...very, dark corner and it took some time getting used to. Get the filet, do not mess around with the other beefs, they don't even come close to the tenderness that the filet has."

  • " enjoyed the atmosphere. The food was good. Alot of flavorful cheese selections. Would have enjoyed more to dip in cheese. The service was fast. I like the dark, clean and artsy decorations. my daughter is 18 and moving out to college and it was a perfect goodbye dinner."

  • "First time going, it was fun and desert was great!!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "The Melting Pot is still amazing and my all time favorite place to eat. I just wish they'd bring back the Wisconsin trio cheese choice! But I have no complaints. Food and service is stellar!!!"
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "This was my first time at Melting Pot. I was really excited to try it out. I was little disappointed with the service. I think a more experienced Server could have made the experience better. We did not receive any explanation of menu or instruction on how the whole fondue thing worked. Service was really slow and our waiter brought us the dinner. Overall, Drinks were good, Appetizer and Salad were good. Dinner was so so . I think if I go back again, it will be for appetizers or dessert only."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "Spa Night is always a fun night for my sister and my friends! What a great concept to get the delicious food at the restaurant and sample some of the spa treatments that are offered. We will continue to come back!"
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "At first I did not understand why you could go without a reservation, but when my husband and I went we had a wonderful time. From the lighting, to the service everything was wonderful. It seemed as if each server was assigned one table, they were very attentive, alert and punctual. We were slightly upset about the portions but were happy that we weren't starving. I think when we go back we'll only go for the chocolate fondue. Other than that, a fantastic experience!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We enjoyed our meal here, but for the amount of food the price is simply way too high, even with a groupon. Also be advised that meals here take a very long time, at least 2 hours."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Always enjoy this restaurant for a night out with my guy. It is slow paced so you can spend quality time together."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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!!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "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 7/14/2014
  • "I always enjoy the chance to go to The Melting Pot. I really enjoy the fondue style of cooking and the food is always fresh"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Nice atmosphere, food was prettty good also. Parking was kind of a headache."
    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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "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."
