The Melting Pot - Minneapolis
Excellent celebrationOur family spent 2 + hours and had a great celebration of my son's graduation. Excellent food. Never felt hurried.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary dinnerMy girlfriend and I went for our anniversary and we had a living social coupon for the experience. Tue amount of meat you get for the coupon is less than a full entree per person but we found it quite filling enough when coupled with the other courses. Our service was great overall and the wine was deliciously paired.
There were a couple of louder groups in the group seating area but an overall great time6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only thing was the niceThe only thing was the nice romantic booth we had got a little too warm when the food was cooking. Otherwise everything was amazing we would highly recommend the Melting pot to anyone.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great BirthdayOur second trip to the Melting Pot was for my boyfriend's birthday. Our waitress was kind, attentive, and fun. The quality of the food was top-notch, and we were able to take our time and enjoy each part of our meal. It made for a wonderful special occasion dining experience!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time!Went for our 1st anniversary, the atmosphere was was great and private. Our server was fantastic.
We ended up getting the 4 course meal which was a little expensive but to be expected for a nicer restaurant so no surprise. The shrimp was great but wasn't to crazy about the rest of our main courses.
Defiantly will be going again but next time I think we will just go fr the cheese and dessert (they were FANTASTIC).6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFun with great foodComing to the Melting Pot is an experience and event, not just a meal. The food is excellent and you can settle in and enjoy the time while you cook your own meal to just talk with your partymates. My wife and I came for our anniversary and had a great time talking about the past, present and future as we enjoyed an excellent 4 course meal.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSuch a great night!Love going to the melting pot!! Always a great time, ask for Jessie was an amazing server! Made the night very special for our 10th wedding anniversary.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceMy husband and I went to Melting Pot for my birthday. He had purchased a LivingSocial coupon for the meal, which included cheese appetizer, salads, entrees and a bottle of wine. Our waiter was fantastic! He was very friendly and prompt, gave us ideas when asked and clarified the coupon for us. We choose to purchase desert after our meal. While we were eating it he stopped by to ask how it was, and asked what my favorite thing was. I told him I loved the bananas, and a few minutes later he brought a small plate with some more banana slices. I know it's a small thing, but the gesture really was appreciated. We will definitely be back!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodI had never done fondue before. It was fun and delicious. Its pricey, so it will be a while before I go back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightfult time.The sauces were a lot of fun to mix and match with the variety of meats and seafood. Well Done!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AM30th Birthday celebrationWe celebrated two birthdays with our family of 6 and were fortunate to have TC as our server. He made the night fun and special, dealing with first-timers as well as experienced fondu-ers. Our 30th birthday daughter was thrilled to have the photo in the frame surprise. We had the four course meal with 2 amazing cheeses (cheddar and spinach/artichoke), individual salads, individual entrees and 2 fantastic chocolates (chocolate/peanut butter & chocolate/caramel with candied pecans). With 6 people we had a 2 burner table which was perfect. I'm sure all the servers are great but we truly enjoyed having TC make our occasion perfect.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice placeThe wisconsin cheese fondue is very good. The meats aren't nearly as good to me. The desert fondues are also very good.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was so delicious.This place was so delicious. My boyfriend and I went here after he got back from basic training to have a romantics dinner and the place was great! The staff were great and our food was cooked to perfection. It's a little bit pricey but it's definitely worth it!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good and FunJust had an excellent dinner at the Melting Pot. The food is great, service was outstanding and just a lot of fun cooking at the table. A great place to relax and enjoy.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, amazing service!I try to make it here every couple of years. Awesome food, lot of fun, best service. Jesse is great!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place.... it was ourGreat place.... it was our first time ever. Loved it. Pricey bit worth it. We'll be back for sure.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great experience,We had a great experience, the waitress was very friendly and personable. I think we ended up being the forgotten table. We were there for 2 and 1/2 hours, mostly a very long wait between the appetizer and the meal. She had a rather "needy" table at the same time which kept our waitress' attention almost the whole time we were there. But when she was servicing us the food was amazing and fun atmosphere.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingMy husband and I went here to celebrate his birthday, the atmosphere was wonderful and perfect for a romantic dinner. We were seated alone in a quiet inlet, which was great and felt very special and romantic.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the four course dinnerEnjoyed the four course dinner and would recommend it as a complete experience.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMbar below ruins itMy wife and I went on a weekend. The bar below had a live band that was so loud we could hear it in the melting pot. Th bass from the band also vibrated our booth. I would not go after 8 to avoid the obnoxious band that ruins the experience.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Service!Great experience. Jesse, our waiter was outstanding. Very knowledgable, an all round great waiter.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFun nightWe had such a good time. This was our first visit, but not our last. Food was great and the service even better.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as usualMy wife and I have been going to The Melting Pot once or twice a year for the last seven and never walk away disappointed. They recently adjusted their menu a bit, moving from a couples-focused ordering and pricing scheme to one focused on individuals. I can see it being nice for odd-numbered groups or groups whose individuals can't agree on an entree line-up (the meat lover and the vegetarian). Even for couples, though, it allows a little bit more flexibility in choosing entree items, and the price seemed slightly lower. We felt the entree portions were also slightly smaller than on previous visits. We certainly didn't leave hungry, but we missed the 1 extra shrimp and filet Mignon.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for romantic diningMy wife and I ate here for her birthday and had a great time! The food was excellent, the staff friendly and personable, and excellent value!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid!It was my first time having fondue, so I basically had to be tutored on how everything worked. A very enjoyable experience. I loved the dessert (yin and yang with white and dark chocolate fondue). I definitely recommend it to others.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyedHad a really great time at the Melting Pot. It was not a special occasion, but would be very appropriate for a special occasion. Come hungry... your adventure will be best if you try all four courses. Or, if you are coming with a larger group, just go for the dessert course... worth every time. Be sure and allow for a lot of time, as we were there for almost 2 hours for all four courses.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but expensiveI would definitely recommend this restaurant to other people but overall I was not satisfied with the amount of food i received for the price. I probably would never go back because it's an experience no doubt, but I would like more bang for my buck.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat once we found our server!Went in a Tuesday night for a random date with my sweetie. Got put on Lover's Lane, which was perfect. Unfortunately, then we sat approximately half an hour without service. Once we flagged down a staff member, things got much better. We had fun, good service, and great food. They comped us for the bad start, which was appreciated. Overall a great date. I would do it again.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience for dinnerWe went out for a celebratory dinner and had a great experience. There are a wide varity of choices and our meal was great. Out waiter, TC was phenomenal. It is very rare you see someone that gives such great service to us but also everyone around us. He was very personable and when we go back we will ask to be seated in his section. It was a great overall experience.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty but warmFondue! It's so fun to do, a great way to spend a holiday or special occasion. Great for just two or big groups. However, just be warned that with the hot pot comes hot steam, and that can make your dining experience a little on the warm side. Wear layers!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a Food Experience!!This was our first visit to The Melting Pot. We were celebrating my husband's 50th birthday. We used the on-line reservation system, which worked beautifully. They were excellent at reminding us several times via email and phone about our upcoming reservation. We arrived at TMP about 15 minutes early, yet they seated us immediately. The place has wonderful ambiance, yet it is noisy. The wait staff was incredible! They were knowledgeable and helpful, as at first we were totally confused about how the menu worked. The Classic cheese fondue was amazing! We also enjoyed the teriyaki steak, Angus Sirloin and filet the best. There were 6 of us who enjoyed this 3 hour experience!! Just make sure you bring lots of $$ - it's not cheap.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGotta tryIt was our 15 year anniversary and we were lucky enough to get a Living Social deal! We've been here a few times before and always love it! This time was no different. Delicious food and such a great environment to sit for a couples hours and chat over dinner. Great service too!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousMy husband and I did the 4-course dinner and the food was excellent! The staff was friendly and prompt. I would definitely come again! It is a little spendy, but woth it for special occasions and some date nights. Probably not for children or family environment as it is very quiet and somewhat romantic setting.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome 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 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 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 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 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 AMGreat food, service okThe food speaks for itself, absolutely dee-lish! Had some issues with the burner not heating up. The server was not personable but was attentive to the table in regards to drink refills, expediting the order, and processing the bill. He was all business.5/7/2013 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, amazing service!This was our second time at The Melting Pot and it was amazing! The food was delicious but the service was impeccable. My husband works in customer service and he was so impressed that he had to tell the manager how wonderful everyone was. Jen was our server and she was awesome! Highly recommended!5/2/2013 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 AM
