    We went to celebrate my brother's birthday and it was our first time there. The cheese fondue appetizer was delicious but portion was small. Same for the chocolate fondue for dessert. I was still eating when the server started clearing away all the dishes both at dinner and dessert. I felt rushed and didn't appreciate that.

    Only negative comment was my "special" whiskey cocktail, which was $7.95, was really watered down. Other than that .. service was great, food amount was generous, experience was enough to make me want to return for a special occasion.

    Enjoyed a three course fondue dinner! Cheddar fondue was first course and it was very good. Classic fondue for the main course with great sauces for the steak, chicken, pork and shrimp accompanied with potatoes and vegetables was so good and the dark chocolate was fantastic. Our Server, Sara was OUTSTANDING and made this a fantastic experience.

    Excellent choices of food, cheese, and chocolate fondue. A nice change of pace from the usual restaurant. It was memorable because we were making the food as we ate it. That takes a bit of time, so it's not going to be a rushed meal. Great service and very friendly staff. One of the best dining experiences ever!

    I had a really great experience at the melting pot. We were seated immediately and greeted by our server shortly after. He had great drink recommendations and I tried their love martini which was fantastic. The food was equally as fantastic and our server did a great job making sure we knew the cooking times and checking in on us. Overall I loved this experience and would recommend it as a nice romantic night out.

    This was something I picked off Trip Advisor on a hunch. A new experience for my wife and I and it was great! The waiter (Jamison) was fantastic and very patient with a couple of seniors that had never been there before. We both had the 4 course meal and all of it was wonderful. We were checking for one close to home before the 2nd course, sadly the closest is 1 1/2 hours away but I'm sure we'll make an effort to get there. All 4 of the courses were excellent but the last (dessert) was completely over the top wonderful. I'm sure glad we took a chance on this and have been sharing our experience with our friends and encouraging them to try it. This was something we'll definately do a lot more!

    Staff went above and beyond to make our special night even more special!!! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a "Happy Anniversay" and escorted to a table on the end of a row where no one would be passing by. Very private. Our waiter was outstanding and didn't miss a beat. The manager came over at one point to wish us a Happy Anniversary and made sure all our needs were met. We even received an anniversary card from the staff. To top it all off, they gave us complimentary champage with dessert for a toast. It was truly a memorable evening!! I highly recommend The Melting Pot and will be going back for many years to come!

    I totally love this place. My first time, my husband is not easily impress, but this time he was totally amazed. I love the fact that we cook out own meal, it gave us the opportunity to interact with each other. The entire night we talk and not once the phone came out or any business conversation (which that's what normally happen).

    If you love fondue, this is a great place to have it dining out. However, if you are more interested in dining out for a great meal, I would recommend choosing another area restaurant. If you are the latter, The Melting Pot will feel like a scam. The service was fantastic, and the venue is gorgeous! Make sure that the product is what you are after.

    Not quite sure why this restaurant rates so highly on trip advisor. The booth we were given felt like a prison cell as high sided and facing a bare wall, this was not intimate or romantic as we felt totally isolated. Leaving the restaurant we did then notice better tables so perhaps we should have asked to move. None of the food was exceptional and there are far more reasonable restaurants serving much better food, Carrabbas, Longhorn to name a few. Would not recommend to friends think this is just a novelty idea which for us did not work on any level. It took us 25 minutes to get two glasses if water and the wine yo the table so not the best of starts.

    Celebrating a milestone, we chose the Melting Pot. We will never regret it. The atmosphere was conducive for a couple celebrating a big night. The service was amazing. We had our server, a manager, and another employee come to our table to celebrate us and ensure all was well. It was our first time and we needed to be explained everything and we were with great detail. The service all around was phenomenal.

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    Their cheese and chocolate fondues are AMAZINGLY yummy :) But I found that their entree options (where you cook your food items in a hot broth) were mediocre tasting; Maybe next time I'll opt for the oil option. It was difficult to gauge how long to cook specific meat items. I ended up overcooking the meat. Although the servers list you a suggested cooking time for the different meats at the beginning of your meal, it is difficult to memorize them all at once, and I don't want to have to continually ask the server what the cooking times are. I think they should have them printed on the back of their menu or have a list by the table. Shaq was awesome! Super friendly, had a great sense of humor and was very helpful :) We left full and happy!

    My girlfriend and I only went to the melting pot because of the magical dining we had always wanted to go but its a little pricey for our budget so when we saw that it was only $33 per person we were very excited. Our server was Tatiana and she was amazing we told her that we had no idea what to do and she was extremely helpful with explaing all the choices. She checked on us enough to make sure we were ok but not to much to interrupt our night. Overall we were very satisfied with our night and will definitely be back for dessert and eventually for a whole meal even though it might not be till next years magical dining month.

    Not my favorite restaurant. Quite pricey for the amount of raw food you get. Think I prefer traditional restaurants where I don't have to work for my dinner I guess. Our service was sub par. One of the plethora of forks on the table my $8 drink over right after I got it and it was never replaced but I was sure charged for it. I then had to ask for new forks. Then a new plate. THEN new napkins. Ridiculous. Not one of the better melting pot experiences. I'll stick to going for just cheese and chocolate.

    This is the first time we enjoyed The Melting Pot on Sand Lake. We had been to the original restaurant a few times in Maitland before it closed. I love the new environment. More trendy, larger, didn't feel as closed in and better air circulation here---didn't smell like a kitchen at all! Would have appreciated having a larger table for the 4 of us, because one cooking pot was just too crowded and felt that I couldn't cook my food properly. Our family is very familiar with fondue cooking---a family tradition at the holidays. However, we have a separate pot for the seafood and one for the meats and veggies.

It's a great night that you can make quick by just having cheese & chocolate or take your time with a meat entree and all the fixins.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversarybecause of a card we recieVed in the mail. I was skeptical of going to a fondue restaurant. We'll we were pleasantly surprised as our experience could not have been more enjoyable. Our server Shay was excellent. Her food recommendations were good choices for us. We enjoyed the food and ambiance. The overall dining experience from the usual restaurant experience of being served the cooked food exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning.
