    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.

    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.

    We are parents of a 16 yr old and 3 yr old so date nights are few and far between. We had a great start to our evening at The Melting Pot as usual. The service and the food were great and Mommy loved the Love Martinis. Always confident in the evening when we go for fondue at the Dr. Phillips location.

    We love this Melting Pot! The management is top notch and the staff will bend over backwards to make sure you have what you need. The Traditional Swiss Cheese fondue is to die for and my son loves to fry his items in the oil himself! 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.

I normally save The Melting Pot for special occasions, but recent email deals have made it more affordable and practical for a random night out.

    Went with my boyfriend for a celebration and we had a wonderful time. The couples booths are so cozy and romantic. We had the 4 course dinner and I could've done without the salad and the entree. My boyfriend loved the meat plate though. I would just go for cheese and dessert. Speaking of dessert, the chocolate fondue is absolutely amazing! This is a great place for a new experience and having some fun. It'd be great with bigger groups. But it was a cute date spot.

    After going to Melting Pot since they opened the original store in Maitland, fl, they removed their Traditional Cheese fondue from the menu and exchanged it for something truly horrible. This came from corporate. How can you have a fondue restaurant and not have "Traditional" fondue. We loved it. We will not be doing back until they return it to the menu. We have been die hard patrons of the restaurant until now, having eaten in at least 22 different Melting Pots.

    The management and staff at this Melting Pot are top notch! Ariel, our server, did an awesome job and was very knowledgable. The manager stopped by our table to chat and we mentioned the loud crying baby a few booths over. He handled the situation with grace and professionalism. My husband mentioned it was my birthday and next thing I knew, I was presented with a birthday card and a candle in our dessert! No loud embarrassing displays, just the same quiet elegance that brings me back to The Melting Pot time after time.

    It was good but left feeling like I had spent an awful lot of money for a little bit of food. Not sure I would go back other than for solely the experience. Service was attentive and then she must have gone on break while manager filled in. Sodas were refilled endlessly and promptly. Next time I'll spend more money for the different cooking liquids offered.

    There were two couples for a birthday celebration. Was seated promptly (we had reservations), we were greeted by our server and she took our drink order. All courses were explained and options presented. The food was delivered as we finished the previous course - great timing. Food was very good. But I was a little surprised with a $300.00 + bill including tip. But we only go on special occasions and everyone enjoyed it, so I would definitely recommend the Melting Pot.
