    They removed items from their menu that other nearby Melting Pots still have. They must be in financial trouble because they reduced their menu to only a couple salads and cheese fondues with similar ingredients. They don't offer the fondue for two with the excuse that it's cheaper for the patron this way. The Boca Melting Pot still has fondue for two and I can assure you we paid a lot less there than at the PGA location. They also hired a magician to 'entertain' patrons while they are eating. Do they think they are running a 'Friendly's' restaurant? We would have preferred a table in a quieter and more secluded location. They were 1/2 empty but sat most people in the front area of the restaurant. We will not return to this location!

    The food was great, The service was even better, the only problem was my party and I were seated inside a center room with several large groups one which was extremely loud singing and yelling at the top of their lungs forcing the wait staff to shut the doors enclosing my party inside with noise so loud we could hardly talk to each other, that alone will probably keep me from coming back with a group. The wait staff did apologize for the noise and I know there was nothing they could do about it, But that did not keep my wife (who selected The Melting Pot)from feeling bad about subjecting our friends to that atmosphere.

Everyone was pleasant and our food was outstanding as were our drinks. I've never been disappointed at any MP no matter the location, but this particular location's service was outstanding.

    Fine for a special occasion. Called to reconfirm for my daughters birthday which I mentioned, and he offered to put balloons at the table. What a nice gesture for him to offer that. Much to our surprise, $20.00 was added on to the bill for the balloons. they did make it right in the end. Had a good waiter, Stewart. The tuna was very good.

    I took my son and his girlfriend to dinner for my son's birthday. It was a new experience for both of them and really out of their comfort zone because the cooking "thing" had to be dealt with. HOWEVER, our server, Justin, was completely and totally fabulous and put them at ease with a good sense of humor, a great deal of poise and expertise (and not forgetting to mention he is a really good bartender, serving this mama really good cocktails.) A nice touch having the restaurant manager stop by the table for a chat. I for one will be back, hauling newbies to the experience. My 20 year old son was impressed enough to say he will definitely be back, now that he knows the ropes. It's pricey, but worth every cent for a special occasion.

    We as a family have celebrated many birthdays at the melting pot, but this time we were very disappointed in our dining experience. Our waitress was extremely nice and very attentive, even though she was running the bar also. Our seating area was dark, the waitress opened the shades. Our seats itself were ripped and the stuffing was poking out. For the price of our dinner for 5, almost $300.00 it certainly didn't feel like a Fine dining experience as in the past, not sure if I will be back.

    We enjoyed our dining experience tremendously. The only issue I had was I left my credit card in the bill sleeve and no one turned it in. I had to cancel it and notify all my creditors etc. Other than that the waitress was very informative, talented and polite. The food was delicious. For never having experiencing fondue dining I was very impressed and will do it again.

    We arrived for our 6:45pm reservation & were seated right away.After sitting at the table for 6 mins, a manager brought us some waters.Another 10 mins after that our waiter finally came to our table.He took our drink orders & then nothing.A manager brought me my glass of wine about 10 mins later (which by the way was not the wine I ordered) & the waiter showed up with the rest of the drinks 5 min after that.Before he had a chance to leave I placed the food order.The 1st course came out rather timely (in about 15 mins).The rest of the meal was not timely at all! It was another 35 mins before the 2nd course came out.By the time the food came out most of the liquid in the pot had boiled away!It was almost 10pm when we left!It was a 3hr meal!!

    The Melting Pot has changed, and not for the better. The original Swiss cheese fondue has been replaced and the new versoin (without Kirsch) is gone. The mushroom salad is also gone,replaced by a caprece salad. And on the dessert tray, the cheesecake is missing, replaced by pineapple. I suppose corporate is cutting costs but these changes were noticed by our party and we are now deciding whether we want to go back.

    Our family really enjoys the Melting Pot. The pace provides nice family time, and the kids enjoy the fondue. The menu has been freshened up quite a bit since the last time we were there, giving us more options and new combinations. For example, they bake their own bread, and have different meats on offer. They've always had a good wine list and bar, but drinks are a bit expensive relative to the price of the rest of the menu. The service was also very good, although we have always have had a good service experience there.

    For my first visit.... The food was amazing but where we were sitting was between the kitchen door and bathrooms. None stop traffic of waiters and people going to the bathroom. Our cook top wouldn't stop shutting off on us and we had to fix it multiple times. We asked to be moved and couldn't. The noise level was loud where me and my date where sitting and couldn't enjoy ourselfs on Mother's Day.

    It was a little chaotic when we checked in an they weren't that busy. I had requested a table by the window since I have a 95 year old gm that I wanted to take there for Mother's Day. We didn't get a table by the window. We got a regular table with a light. She is legally blind but can see some, but nothing in the dark. That was the reason for my request. Also I had purchased 3 roses to be at the table, they were there but with a Happy Birthday Card - it was Mother's Day. The services was a little slower than usual. Disappointed at cheesecake taken off menu and also ran out of Rice Krispie treats they knew they were going to be busy they shouldn't have run out of food - we had 5:30 reservation.
