Diner Reviews
  • "We went as a family but were shocked with the very small portions of food as compared to the very high price. Also waiting for the food to cook with the hungry kids around was ridiculous !?"

  • "Thank you for great service! Food was great... ambiance was just perfect, I celebrated my birthday in style!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I absolutely adore the melting pot and have been to several throughout the state, this was my first experience at the one in San Antonio and it was my worst experience with any of them. The food was not as great as normal, and the server we got ignored our table so much that another server and the manager were the ones that waited on us. If you want a great fondue experience I recommend the drive to the Austin Melting Pot as they are absolutely perfect experience and food every single time!"

  • "My wife and I selected The Melting Pot as the restaurant to "celebrate" our son's birthday (July 16). You need to know that our son was killed in the War on Terror, so we "celebrate" his life and the years God gave him to us. He also enjoyed fondu foods, and as a family we eat fondu frequently. The service was outstanding, and the food was excellent."

  • "It was mine and my husband's first time to the Melting Pot. We had a very enjoyable experience thanks in large part to Monique, our server. She was fabulous! She took the time to explain how the whole process worked, reccomended things and went out of her way to accomadate. The sweet card from the staff for our anniversary was a very nice touch as well. Overall we had a great 7th anniversary and look forward to coming back. Thank you for your accommodations to help make this a special night."

  • "We go to the Melting Pot for special occasions and always enjoy the food! You must understand that this is a dining experience that takes about 2 hours to complete. Don't come here hoping to get in and out."

  • "Excellent atmosphere and a romantic occasion spot. I would not recommend necessarily for children."

  • "Great restaurant. Perfect for that quiet get together or even with a group of friends. This time we went as a couple and had great food, great service and ate way too much. Definitely will go again, just might not get as much next time. Had fondue in Switzerland and this was a heck of a lot better. I would highly recommend it but keep in mind this place is not inexpensive if you decide on the 4 courses."

  • "Expensive for cheap food. The 4 course meal was $89.00 for half a chicken breast and 4 oz of steak. The chocolate desert was the same Hershey s syrup that you buy at the grocery store. Very bad."

  • "My husband and I dined at The Melting Pot for our 2nd anniversary. It was our first time dining there and both enjoyed the experience! Our waiter was friendly and experienced....he did an awesome job:) The food was good and the evening was perfect for spending quality time together. We even received a personalized card upon being seated! Would recommend it to everyone~"

  • "great service, nice place, but the food is not worth the money"

  • "To me, a hidden treasure. I thought it would be 1980's "cheesy" but, the food and sevice were excellent."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Fondue is more than simmering cheese or chocolate. The recipes for the fondue liquid - cheese, broth, or chocolate - make so much difference. You will want to lick the pot, but remember that it's hot."

  • "This was the 1st time that my husband went to dine at Melting Pot. We will NEVER go back. We were put in a small booth, limited leg room, small table for plates and utencils, difficult to read the menu (had to use cell light) and miserable during our 2 1/2 hour meal. What made this worse was that there were bigger "empty" tables available. We are both professionals and will not recommend this to anyone. I don't know if we were put in this uncomfortable booth because we used a coupon. It's been years since I have been there and was excited to share the experience with my husband. Needless to say, we were both unhappy but tried to make the best of the situation. I hope management really focus on "customer service" & fix this!"

  • "I took someone that had never done fondue to the Melting Pot. I had seen a Living Social bargain and thought this would be a fun "Mystery Date" for my boyfriend and me. We throughly enjoyed ourselves! Our waiter, Blake, was knowledgeable, personable and attentive. We had a great time and we look forward to returning again and bringing some friends and trying some of their other combinations."

  • "We celebrated our 30 year anniversary there this week! It was AMAZING! The atmosphere was perfect, our waitress was awesome and the food was so good! It was great to be able to relax and listen to soft music while enjoying each others company! I would highly recommend The Melting Pot!"

  • "We enjoy eating at the Melting Pot and also like the current menu. The staff were professional, courteous, and efficient. The drinks were well made and the meals were delicious and fun. There was no pressure in hurrying to finish our meal; we were able to enjoy our meal at our leisure."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We had been wanting to try out The Melting Pot and took advantage of a date night. We had never been there and our waiter, Blake, was very patient as he took us through the steps of how to order. It was a little different cooking our own dinner at the table but it was quite fun to do. Can't wait to go back again."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Well, I can cross the Melting Pot off my bucket list. I've always wanted to try it, but never did until now. We had a farewell dinner for a friend with 7 attendees. The waiter was great - very attentive without being stifling, enthusiastic, and obviously liked his job. The fondue courses were really good. The flavors were great. However, it seemed like there were too many of us to make it comfortable. There was hardly any room on the table for the plates because of the glasses, etc. There were 2 fondue pots on the table and trying to reach the one on the other end of the table was impossible. I ended up just using the one closest to me. Also, it's easy to dip and eat off the same fork, so beware of double dippers!"

  • "Great place for special occasions! This was my second time there and i was not disappointed. The first time was with a few girlfriends and this time was to celebrate a first anniversary with someone special. The small table we were sat at was very private and cozy. We ordered the couples special. We were food drunk by the end! Our waitress was a sweetheart, I wish I could remember her name."

  • ""THE MELTING POT $80 to Spend on a Four-Course Fondue Dinner for Two at The Melting Pot" was what I paid for, but they whisked away the regular menu and you are limited to one entree, instead of lots of choices and pay the difference. We had planned on a different choice, plus adding on Lobster. I was very disappointed with the second class treatment"

  • "My husband and I had a wonderful time celebrating our ninth wedding anniversary at this place. I had always wanted to come and finally convinced him when I got a Living Social coupon. The whole experience was great (minus having to wait 10 minutes when we first got there despite having a reservation). They staff had all signed a nice card congratulating us on our anniversary, which was very nice. Our waiter, Jason, was courteous and responsive but also let us have lots of time between stopping by so we could enjoy our time together. Tke food was rich & unique. My favorite by far was the dessert! The Flaming Turtle - don't miss it! Also, con't come if you are in a hurry or have small children - this is best for a romantic date night."

  • "They atmopshere was great and the food always yummy. We had the Quattro Formagio and land & sea. We also took our daughter with us. If taking young kids, I definitely recommend the earliest time slot and a week night-it worked out well and we didn't feel like we disturbed other guests. Definitely going back for some more yum!"

  • "Just a few words to say how much we enjoyed this dinning experience. The food was very good. My daughter is gluten intolerant and they were able to help us out in this area. The waiter explained everything and made the experience a very good one."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "I was generally disappointed. Maybe I was naïve, but I certainly did not expect to have to cook ALL my food myself! The quantity of food was not up there with the price! Too expensive for what you got. Generally not a good experience, and the waitress seemed very impatient with my lack of knowledge of this type of restaurant. I wish the web site had described the details of the experience and process, then I would've known beforehand what to expect. "

  • "After going to the San Antonio Melting Pot, we decided to take some special friends to the one in Houston - WOW!! - No comparison in stores. The San Antonio Melting Pot is the BEST!! The food, the ambience, the service, the food prep, the taste of the food, the feel of NOT being rushed through your meal were all top notch at The Melting Pot, San Antonio. Our waiter was always there when we needed him, and absent when not needed. He was awesome!! A very nice place and night to unwind from the hectic week!! Thank you for having us as your guest!"

  • "Never been to a fondue specialty restaurant before until my visit to the Melting Pot a couple days ago. I really enjoyed the unique experience and plenty of food. The best part was clearly the dessert. Dipping the little pastries or fruit into the warm chocolate was such a guilt trip. Definitely would go back for another special occasion."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "The Melting Pot has continued to be thee restaurant that my wife and I love to brag about to our friends. The private booth is the best when it comes to special occasions that you want to spend with that special someone. While for me, the atmosphere seems to be geared towards adults, bringing a child is not big deal. The children understand the whole concept of dipping small portions of food into different sauces and broths very well. Please, do your family and friends a favor and bring them here. You will never regret it and it will be an experience to remember. "
