Diner Reviews
  • "We go to the Melting Pot quite a bit. We love it and were very happy to see it take part in Restaurant Week. Hope they repeat this every year."

  • "The dinner, the service, the restaurante and the ultimate romantic package was fantastic. The only point to improve was the private dinning area, that happened not to be so private. A loud group was placed next to the table and the privacy and romantic scenario changed. However, our server Lauren was outstanding!"

  • "We were celebrating two birthdays. The part about the birthdays probably got lost when we had to switch the day of our reservation, but the dinner was still excellent. The service was top-notch."

  • "Not set up to accommodate large groups, crowded tables . One server insufficient."

  • "I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, it was our first time, and it was a great experience. The waiter was very helpful and thoroughly explained the menu to us. I will defiantly come back again, the food was amazing!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Nice, quiet, romantic setting. Very nice, friendly service. But I was surprised when we had to cook out own meat and vegetables! Just not what I expect for over $100 Bill!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "If you are looking to have an enjoyable dinner out with your significant other, this is the place! When you request a private table, the setting is very intimate. The cheese and chocolate are the BEST!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Always a great time with good friends. Well taken care of in every aspect. Needs alittle more menu options for vegetarians would be nice."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "It was easy to balk at the prices initially when it's tough to get out of there for under $30/person, assuming you drink water. I've been there several times, so I knew what to expect at my latest visit. But once I took every aspect into account, I reconsidered. The ambiance is quiet and elegant, the service impeccable. The food is simple but high-quality and delicious. Combine those with the show the waiter/waitress puts on and the entertainment of cooking/sharing your food and mixing meats/veggies with various sauces, and it is actually a great deal, though not something done often. For maximum entertainment and enjoyment, you can't go wrong with a 4-course meal that ends with chocolate fondue."

  • "We took our daughter here for her 16th birthday. We choose the 4 course experience, and it was wonderful. It was fun to see the waiter prepare the cheese fondue at the table. We got to prepare our own dinner in the fondue pot too, and I was not expecting that. The meats were seasoned well, and the dipping sauces were tasty. The dessert was decadent, chocolate. Really good. The entire experience was great. Come very hungry! If you choose the 4 course meal, it is a ton of rich food! Go easy on the bread and cheese, if you can! It fills you up fast. If there are four of you, like in our party, I would not choose a booth. It was a tight fit, but still ok. It is pretty expensive too, but fun for a special occasion or romantic dinner."

  • "Great evening for our group of 8 to converse over our meal for a couple of hours! Really enjoyed the unhurried, quiet atmosphere with good friends, great food and attentive service! This place helps make any evening a special occasion!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "My boyfriend and I went, it was the first visit for both of us. We had a wonderful time. It was romantic, fun and just an incredible evening."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "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."
