Diner Reviews
  • "The smell in the restaurant is not really good. And bread that used for cheese fondue is old."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Good dinner. Kids had a great time! Went to celebrate a special occasion. Good place to do that."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "A unique, active dining experience. Between 2 people, we ordered a 4 course meal EACH, which turned out to be way too much food, but it allowed us to sample everything. The fun of "cooking" food in boiling broth but without the not so fun part of cleaning up all your dishes after. The cheese served as an appetizer was delicious and filling. The entrees are served with 6 different dipping sauces, giving you a different flavor with each bite."

  • "The Melting Pot is such a fun place to enjoy with family and friends. When celebrating a special occasion, they make it special. The cheese fondue has always been my favorite!"

  • "Took my girlfriend here and it was her first time there. We both enjoyed our night and our server was polite and very professional with us made us feel very welcome. Our only one problem was that fact we barely saw her we spent over two hours dining there. I remembered staying there for over two hours. Other than that we both enjoyed our night there!"

  • "We went with our 3 kids and loved it. We worried about them getting burned but we did just fine. The waiter was extremely nice and understanding of our boys excitement & interest in cooking their own food. It's an expensive dining experience but with our waiter's help we got 3 full kids meals and we ate from their protein, veggies & desert (more than enough). For us we took 1 cheese and 1 salad each. I'd say the food is more fun than delicious and I can see how fun this would be for a group of friends or a romantic dinner. I took out a star for service bc of too much time in b/w courses and, bc the restaurant is sectioned of, it's hard to waive to the waiter since we don't see them. Great for privacy though! All in all we loved it."

  • "The Melting Pot is definitely a different a unique experience , the food was good not great but very good, if your tired of regular up scale restaurants, try this spot that combines romance and embience with colonary fun... You cook your own food at the table In the many melting pot flavors , which could be fun, if your patient and looking to try a new way to dine. Expect to spend 100-130 $"

  • "I love the relaxing and delicious experience of the Melting Pot. I feasted on thicky, creamy,cheese fondue and a fresh salad with an amazing melting pot dressing. I enjoyed my shrimp, salmon, chicken, and sirloin entree. A little bit of everything kept it from being boring! I dove into my chocolate fondue dessert with OMG the most amazing brownies and blondies as well as fresh strawberries and bananas! I didnt even want a movie afterwards. I was completely satisfied. My server was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was a welcomed change from the corporate restaurants . LOVED IT!"

  • "I have been going to this restraint and the quality of the food has gone way down as well as the overall quality. We noticed a smell mostly from the years of fondue pots. then we were seated at a table that had a very bright and naked bulb. That was a bit annoying Cheese came and it was gritty not the normal smooth texture almost uneatable. service was fine and the menu has changed a bit. I would not recommend going to this restaurant in the future, unless they review the quantity of food for the price and quality of restaurant atmosphere. Our bill after 6 drinks and 2 adults 2 child and dessert and i purchased a 28$ package for my wife the total was 250.00 including tip of 20% I don't blame the wait staff for a company problem."

  • "My husband and I love going here for a nice change in scenery after our busy weeks. Ambience allows for quiet time and catching up. Our favorite of course is the "SWEET" Ending, we indulge in the white chocolate fondue. Also a great place to go with family and friends."

  • "I've been to several locations of the Melting Pot- from Aventura to Tennessee. This is the first time in a few years I came to the Kendall location. It left much to be desired. The menu options were blasé and the food wasn't seasoned well. Some of our dishes were incredibly over seasoned and some were under seasoned. I hope next time it will be better... But my husband was so disappointed that I'm not sure we will have a next time anytime soon."

  • "After 10 years I go back and still a great place. Everything in excellent condition. Nice ambiance and good food experience. "

  • "The Melting Pot is always a great choice to celebrate special occasions. They often have seasonal or limited time only items on the menu, so there is something different to try."

  • "We chose a different style cooking this time around:Vegetable broth. Wasn't as entertaining but the food was delicious. Great service and romantic because of the dim lights and music. It was in the works of being decorated for Valentines day, so it was really nice. The only bad part was that they had forgotten to place the flowers and balloons on my table. They ended up bringing it to us."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Buen concepto pero no está bien explicado por lo que tiende a confundir al cliente. La comida y presentación son excelentes. Un poco lento el servicio..."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Not knowing what to expect I went I with an open mind and I never would have guessed anything like this. It was a great idea and a decent amount of food. If you go and don't to the four course meal you are wasting your money."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Pace of service was off.. seemed server may have had too many tables assigned to him. Also seemed he was new or in training..."

  • "Good food and good fun. It's nice to spend a long dinner and dessert with the family."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We arrived 10 minutes later. However it took almost half an hour to get our table. At the beginning the service was fast. After eating the cheese fondue we waited for more than 15 minutes for the waiter to come back. The main course was fine but not as good as other places where you eat fondue. I had read some notes about the place and somebody said that they had been sent to a table that was like hidden in the restaurant, the same happenned to us. Aditionally the lighting is poor and it smells oil since you cross the entry door. I felt a little dissapointed with that place to have a new years dinner for that price. Thank you"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The Melting Pot is always a great location to gather with friends, since the Fondue process allows you to catch up on conversation. Though our company and the food was great, the service had a lot to be desired. We were put in one of the rooms in the back and it seems like we were forgotten. A process that usually takes 1 1/2 hour extended itself to a 3 hour dinner. (Visit the Melting Pot often to know the process) We had plans to go to a party after dinner and never made it since we would have been two hours late."

  • "I came here with my boyfriend, friend, and her boyfriend because I was given a gift card and decided to make a date night out of it. Make a reservation online; its the best option! We were greeted by the nicest man; we assumed he was the manager but regardless the staff were so friendly- our waiter was super duper!The food was delicious (yes it was pretty expensive for us at about $30-40 per person) and there was a TON of food in the 4 course options. We could have easily shared (this would have brought the total down too). We chose the spinach artichoke, bourgignone oil, us girls had the good earth vegetarian and the boys had the pacific rim and everything was made even better when the cookie and cream desert fondue came out!"

  • "The best option for a romantic date night restaurant with delicious food and great service. A little pricy but the whole experience is well worth it!"

  • "We selected the melting pot for the last dinner of our vacation to Miami and key west . What a great choice, our family of 6 loved it and the price was suprisingly reasonable."

  • "My first time to the melting pot left me desiring more, Its a nice concept, I enjoyed the ambience and setting. My server was very nice and helpful. However, the food itself was in my opinion without much flavor. I tried the seafood trio with the mojo seasoning. The food lacked flavor, I am aware that there were multiple sauces of which i tasted all with my seafood. The bread and cheese, faboulous loved it, chances are i'll probably go back just for that. Drinks were good as well! I didn't get a chance to enjoy dessert."
    Dined on 6/21/2013
  • "This was the first time I've ever eaten at a melting pot. The service was excellent and our waiter was very polite and explained menu choices clear and concise. All of our food seemed fresh and the drink menu is loaded with good options too! Overall this was an excellent first experience with the Melting Pot and I would definitely recommend to others."
