The Melting Pot - Minneapolis
Awesome experience!This was my first time visiting the restaurant. I was very impressed with the service, the food, the ambience....overall great experience!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Fun!Our family of 8 had a fabulous time at the Melting Pot for Mother's Day! It is a must to experience this restaurant! Take the kids and they'll have a blast - or enjoy the romantic booths with your special someone.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFondue of The Melting PotI always LOVE the food when I go to the Melting Pot. There is not one bad thing on the menu.
We started with the fiesta cheese fondue which was excellent. The spinach and artichoke is still my favorite though. Regardless, we thoroughly cleaned the cheese out of the pot.
For the entrees, we each selected 3 different meats so share. I thought the duck was fantastic - I've never really had duck so wanted to try something new. And everything else was just as delectable.
Finally for dessert we had the bananas foster chocolcate fondue. The only word for this dessert is scrumptious. I am sure that our nearest neighbors could hear our sigs of pleasure as we ate this yummy concoction.
We left feeling full, but thoroughly sated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReview of Melting Pot.My wife and I dine at The Melting Pot once every few years and we always enjoy the ambiance, food, and the staff is always very courteous and friendly. We particularly enjoy the desserts -- this time we tried the Turtle, which was wonderful. It is a bit pricey to eat the four courses and include two mixed drinks. We would definitely return more often if the prices were slightly lower. As is, we dine at The Melting Pot for special occasions and are never disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Romantic eveningWe decided to go to the melting pot for no special occasion other than a night out, just the two of us. It ended up being a very memorable night. We were able to enjoy our dinner and wine and ended up spending way longer there than we thought we would. It was a great evening!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique loved itNever been to the melting pot and we loved
It the prices are quite high but it was a ton of fun and the food was great5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe went to Melting pot for my wifes 50th birthday, it was a great experience from start to finish. We had an enjoyable meal with great ambience for the four of us that dined. I would highly recommend the Melting Pot to anyone.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLong Dinner, thats a good thingSince you cook 1-2 pieces of your dinner at a time, lots of time to talk. Thought, for fondue, prices seemed high but service, taste and romance make it a nice place for couples.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Wife's BirthdayMy wife and I had a fantastic experience at "The Melting Pot" in Minneapolis. The food, wine and dessert were perfect. Our server, Alex, was great!!! This was the perfect dining experience for us. I highly recommend it to all who want a peaceful, tasty dinner.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful mealMy husband and I celebrated our Anniversary here. We had a wonderful mulit-course meal with wine. Our service was excellent and the ambiance is fun. We love fondue and how it is a more social and slower paced meal - helps with all of the different courses! Highly recommend.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timerThis was a great experience as a first time diner here! The booth set-up is very comfortable and unique. "Lovers Lane" is private and romantic. We did the four course meal and had the spinach and artichoke cheese fondue which was fantastic. The vegetable broth was just fine to cook our meat in. The variety of dipping sauces were delicious. We had the turtle for dessert and while it was good, I think I'd try something else next time. Come hungry if you do the four course meal, there is a lot of food to go around. Make reservations at least a week in advance, even then space is limited!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMChocolateI thought everything was really nice. The only complaints I have is that the pot is not very close and I had to practically stand in my seat to put anything in the fondue. Another complaint is that for dessert we had the milk chocolate. It was the worst I have ever had. It was so thinned out that it would not even stay on anything that was dipped in it. I was really disappointed in this. You would think that when you spend over $100.00 at a restaurant one would at least have the best chocolate for the dessert menu. For this reason I don't know how often I would go back. We spent a lot time sitting there waiting and waiting. We could hear our waitress talking on to the other tables and serving them and going back and forth to their tables.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, bad table locationThis being our first time to your restaurant, we were overall very happy with the experience. The food was excellent, and the atmosphere was good. The only draw back was where our table was located. We were in the second two person booth by the kitchen door. The noise from the kitchen was very annoying, even with our curtain closed. If I was seated there ever again, I would ask to move immediately. Maybe you should consider some sort of door on the kitchen, to keep the noise contained in the working area.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Living Social!We went and used a living social coupon. It was a great deal and my husband and I left full and satisfied. Our server was excellent!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect. TheEverything was perfect. The food was great! The waiter was awesome! The rest of the staff was pleasant and respectful! This was our favorite restaurant when we lived in St. Louis. Although this one is a tad less romantic and not as quiet...everything else was perfect! We took friends there Saturday night for their first fondue experience and they thanked us for it...100's of times!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGirls night with our teenagersWe took our teenage daughters for girls night, They loved it and can't wait to return. Our fondue was fabulous and the recommendations from our server were spot on. We can't wait to return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved the melting pot!We loved the melting pot! The service was great, and the good was wonderful! So yummy! Thank you.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surpriseAmazing service and delicious food this trip. The Wisconsin trio cheese was the highlight.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday Night OutI invited my aunt and uncle to join me and my boyfriend to celebrate my birthday at the Melting Pot. My aunt and uncle had never been there before, but I could tell they really liked the experience. They had not been to a fondue restaurant in years. Their memories of fondue restaurants had more to do with a smoky room with pots of oil. We had double boilers at our table with herbed broth. No oil. We also had the best service! I never had to wait to have my glass filled. The waitress was good about providing decaf coffee for my aunt and uncle. The meats, vegetables and fruits were prepared for us to skewer and cook. We selected the 4-course meal and liked the variety of sauces provided during our entree course. It was a special night.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen I had made reservations,When I had made reservations, I had requested a private booth. They said on the phone that it shouldn't be a problem. When we were seated, it was a regular table and there was no explanation as to why we did not get a private booth. The table was already set up for the anniversary package; so I didn't want to make a big deal out of it at the time. It would've been nice to know ahead of time either they have a private booth or they don't. They shouldn't be telling me one thing, then disappoint when we are there.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly staff, great food,Friendly staff, great food, fun experience. Highly recommended.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location for coupleGreat location for couple to spend time as you eat. The variety of the four courses was great.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMvery fun place to go, especiallyvery fun place to go, especially on a double date. just a note though, we had the dessert fondue and i would NOT recommend getting anything but pure chocolate, adding things to the chocolate makes it really sticky and thick and very hard to dip anything in the fondue pot... also they charge you per person but only give you one tiny bite of cheesecake to dip for two people, you share a plate.. and they don't give you 2nds of the cheesecake so i didn't get any... just some things to think about if you go for dessert that i wish i had known...4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFun, different, easy for groupsFun, different, easy for groups and convenient for conversation.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ExperienceThe food was wonderful. Much more flavorful than I had expected it to be. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere, we had a booth that was secluded and romantic. It was a fun dining experience and we had a wonderful server.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive, but fun for a specialExpensive, but fun for a special occasion.

We decided to take her brother (who had never gone before) for his birthday. As always, it was a great experience. The menu had changed a bit, but the the food was excellent as was the service. It's pricey, but it's definitely worth the splurge for a special occasion.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent serviceThe service was exceptional! As first-time diners with little knowledge of how the menu works, our server gave us very honest insight that helped us choose the best meal for us. Nobody wants a bad experience and we truly believe that he helped us avoid flavors we would've regretted.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe generally go to The MeltingWe generally go to The Melting Pot once per year for my wife's birthday.

My daughter chose your restaurant for lunch to celebrate her 13th birthday. We had a wonderful mother/daughter outing and it not only allowed us to have a great lunch but provided the time and opportunity for uninterrupted conversation.

Wine list was more than adequate and mixed drinks very solid. Should be hungry when you go and prepare to spend some time. If going for dinner, to more the merrier as the different dipping sauces and cooking methods help to enlighten the experience. We never felt rushed and had a very enjoyable evening.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fiance and I made a reservationMy fiance and I made a reservation to eat here for my 30th birthday. It is an hour and a half drive but it is worth it. I always enjoy my meal when eating here. It is my favorite restaurant. Our server was expceptional, as always. He offered honest recommendations and suggestions when asked. He actually recommended a wine that is now my favorite. The food was delicious and fun, like it always is. I'm always pleased when I leave.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and experience!It was absolutely Delicious! It was a fun dinning experience and the service was phenomenal. It was a nice treat to celebrate an anniversary. I definitely recommend!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to many MeltingWe've been to many Melting Pots all over the US and it seems the strange liberal hippy-ism that infects Minneapolis has infected the food too. The Melting Pot in Minneapolis seems to like low sodium substitutes for flavor. Most people can't taste the bitter salt substitute but my wife can and did not like the food as much as she usually did.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance was just right.The ambiance was just right. Warm rich colors and big comfy booths made us feel welcomed. We were greeted right away and handed an extensive wine list. Our server gave great recommendations in multiple areas. We were only coming in for dessert and knew what we wanted but our server was still able to give personal recommendations. Service was fast but not rushed. Prices were very reasonable. Can't wait to come back and enjoy a full 4-course meal!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe melting pot was fantastic!The melting pot was fantastic!
