    This was our first visit to the Melting Pot and were a little lost on the menu. Trey made it extremely comfortable and explained everything to us. He gave us his recommendations and they were perfect! My husband and I will definitely be returning!

    I decided to have my birthday dinner here, and am so glad that I did! Our server Tre was awesome, my table was adorned with rose petals and the food was SO delicious. Our group didn't even realize that we had spent 3.5 hours there...time flew by! The soundtrack was amazing, great food, great service and a birthday picture...it was a great birthday.

    Went to melting pot with my family to celebrate getting a new job. The food and service were wonderful. This is a place to enjoy family time or it can be romantic with just two! Not only is the food great but it is fun to cook your own food. The cheese and chocolate fondue is incredible, try the fiesta cheese and banana fosters chocolate!

    I had higher hopes, and was disappointed in the food quality. Not worth the price in my opinion. I've spent my hard earned money in better restaurants. The service was great, the ambiance was a bit of a disappointment compared to other restaurants in the city.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
