    This was our 6th visit to the Melting pot since 12/12. The management has changed and I'm not sure if it's a good thing. We just didn't feel the warmth and welcoming feeling we'd come to enjoy. While the food is good, everything felt kind of rushed. Our server rattled off the menu details and cooking descriptions like a Disney cast member rushing through a show introduction. it just didn't feel like the special experience it has in past visits which was really disappointing.

    A couple of my girl friends and I had went in to celebrate my new job, upon arriving I was welcomed by name and was congratulated. I was shown where the rest of my part was, we were in a well lit area for a silly girly night. Shay was out server and Ryan helped her out with our fun madness. The manager came over a couple of times to check up on us, which was awesome. I received a HAND WRITTEN car from the staff (HAND WRITTEN who does that anymore?) and we had a champagne toast; Which was totally unexpected. We left full and felling totally fussed over! Thanks for an amazing night! The Ladies in the Tiaras!

    We loved the Melting Pot and our server, Tatiana, was great at explaining all the food items and how she was cooking things. Our kids, one picky eater and one who isn't, loved the experience (their first). The place is pricey, no two ways about it, so we won't be going often, but we will be back.

    The food and atmosphere are WONDERFUL! It is the perfect place if you are looking for a fun, filling and interactive dining experience. (They'll explain the "search and rescue" spoon) ; ) Feel like a lighter meal? Order a bottle of wine with a cheese fondue. In the mood for dessert? Their chocolate fondue will satisfy your sweet tooth. They have multiple dining areas depending on your mood. (Quiet and secluded, fun with friends, etc...) Forget about those 1970's at home fondue parties. The Melting Pot has raised the "fondue bar".

    This was an unexpected find for three of us. Having lived in Switzerland for 12-13 years we have more than a nodding acquaintance with Alpine-style fondue. We loved the version cooked at our table at the Melting Pot. After some excellent margharitas, we started with the traditional cheese fondue. This was followed by a filet, sirloin and teriyaki beef bourguinonne which was again great fun and delicious. After two platters of meat, two of us were unsure about desserts but fortunately we succumbed to the wonderful chocolate fondue. This was a great way to end the evening. Not only was the food and service 1st class, the whole meal was great fun.

    We attended this location with another couple an we had a fabulous time. Our waitress Marlow explained everything to us thoroughly as it was the first time for all of us and it can be a bit over whelming. The cheese fondues were delusion and our entrees even better. We barely had enough room for the chocolate fondues but it was we had a wonderful time nonetheless. We can't wait to go again.

    We dined during Orlando's Magical Dining Month and at first were a little confused by the prixe fix selections for a fondue restaurant, however our server Tatiana was very helpful and patient in explaining the whole process. She also had great tips and recommendations for novice foduers which also enhanced the dining experience. The food was plentiful, tasty and more than met our expectations. I can see going back again and again, whether it be for a intimate, romantic experience or a group gathering (so long as we can decide on a common cheese and chocolate option).

    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.

    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!

    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.
