The Melting Pot - Seattle
Melting Pot ExperienceMy friend and I loved the atmosphere of this place. It was relaxing and peaceful, especially once you are seated in your own booth. Everyone was friendly and helpful with advice with what we should order. The service was great, every waiter that passed by asked if everything was alright, and even refilled our drinks without us asking! The food portions were perfect, and dessert was the best part. We had the mojo broth and it was the best one indeed; super flavorful and delicious. We are definitely returning to try the other dishes. This restaurant topped off a perfect friday dinner for my friend and I. What an experience!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Date NightIf you're looking for a more interactive dining experience, The Melting Pot is great! It's also a nice change from your typical dinner date. I would imagine it's a perfect "first date" kind of place!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary = amazingMy husband and I wanted a special night for our one year marriage anniversary and with having two kids already we didn't want a huge "oorah" scene. So we decided The Melting Pot and I loved it! The food was amazing, the wine... to die for! The service, we couldn't have asked for better! We had the 4 course meal, sat there for over 3 hours, enjoyed the time together as just a couple instead of parents for a little while and never once did we feel rushed to get out of the way.
We will definitely be going back there!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit to the Melting PotOur first visit to the Melting Pot was,undoubtedly, very impressive, Having read some of the mixed reviews I did not know what to expect. The waiter, I believe his name was Louie, was friendly and very professional at the same time. He took the time to ask if this was our first time and if we were celebrating a special occasion. By the way, I was there with my daughter, girl's night. In addition he thoroughly explained the different courses and named his favorite dishes. We chose the four course dinner so we could try everything. It was more than enough and we definitely made sure we had room for the chocolate fondue.I could not believe how quickly 3hrs went by. We will go back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Celebrations!My husband and I love to come here when we have something to celebrate. It's always fun to try the new fondues and cooking together has a romantic feel. We hadn't been here in awhile but were pleased to see that the 4 course experience (which is definitely the way to go) allows each person to choose their own entree now. We both wanted something different and it was nice that we each got what we wanted! Also if you ever looking for some dessert, I recommend stopping by and just having some chocolate fondue!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst timerFirst time for the family at the melting pot. It's an awesome experience much more than just a dinner5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. KnowledgableExcellent service. Knowledgable waiter. Recommended his own mix for dessert that was amazing.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a couple with two teenageAs a couple with two teenage boys, sometimes it's tough to find an eatery that appeals to all - even older kids can be picky. However, going to Melting Pot for our son's 15th birthday was a good choice. They had never done fondue before, so it was an exciting experience, and the menu was varied enough that everyone got something they enjoyed. Great ambience and really good service. Excellent time had by all!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Fun!This restaurant was a great find, it's got a great atmosphere and is such an awesome experience! The private booth we had made prom night really special,5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOdd LocationBetter parking, or validated parking my wife and I had a 4 course meal. that started at 815 and we didn't get out till after 10pm.
how ever very friendly and wonderful first experience.. will definitely be going back.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat timeEvery time that I have been to the Melting Pot, there are always some great constants. The food is always delicious and surprisingly filling, while the service is exactly how one would want it. Not too suffocating but there if anything is needed. The only complaint that I have is that there were table bussers constantly checking on us as if to see if we were done with our food. Overall, I always have a very enjoyable night at the Melting Pot.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for two newbiesThe waitress was great, it was a great "new" experience, lots of variety of tastes. The food was good and nice music sound level, we were able to talk to each other without yelling.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date Night DinnerWe went to the Melting Pot for a date night on a recommendation from friends. It was everything I had expected and more. The table for two we had was intimate, and the service was great. We had the full 4 course meal (cheese fondue, salad, entrée fondue and desert). The cheese course could have been a meal in itself, and our server was very entertaining while he was creating the dish at the table. The portions for the entrée's were the perfect size and the sauces for dipping were well paired with the different proteins and vegetables. Deciding to have the desert course was the best decision of the night. We had the yin and yang (white and dark chocolate fondue). The flavor was amazing, and the items for dipping were perfect!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy melted food!The Melting Pot has revamped their menu and it makes it easier for individuals to order different things from the menu (it includes both a la carte and a 4-course menu). We go for the cheese fondue and it's always really good. I noticed they are providing a larger amount of dipping items now than in the past (we used to run out of bread routinely). Of course, the chocolate fondue for dessert is great, no matter which variation you choose!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe experience is fun andThe experience is fun and different. It's a novel dining experience and one that we like to do about every 3 or 4 years. It's pricing, but unique.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVisited during Seattle RestarantVisited during Seattle Restarant Week. It was an adventure. Service was very helpful and great!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI went with my family, andI went with my family, and we all left talking about how great the experience was. The time flew by! Be prepared for a long, fun outing when you go.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect to celebrate a special day!We usually go to the Tacoma location but were staying in Seattle to celebrate our first anniversary. I hadn't been to this location so I asked if we could get a table in a private or quieter area. They called and let me know this was do-able! It definitely made a difference to help celebrate our day. Service by our waiter Colin was great as well. Even though we were tucked in the corner he stopped by and checked to make sure we had everything we needed.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, but Pricey w/Smaller PortionsI always enjoy the food at the Melting Pot. However, I was surprised to see how small their portions have become. I should think that would be reflected in their pricing, however it was still quite expensive.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI'll Be Back!This was my first visit to a Melting Pot and it won't be my last. What a great restaurant... so much fun to cook at the table and the food was wonderful!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our dinner, howeverWe enjoyed our dinner, however I thought the portions were small. The advertisements give the impression that there is an abundance of food, more than you could finish. We had the 4 course selection and there were only a couple of potatoes, 4 slices of beef (2 1/2 inches long) and 4 small pieces of lobster. After dessert I felt semi-full, but felt hungry after I went to bed. The flavors and presentation were good, but I do not think it was worth $150.00 for 2 people. A friend told me we could get a really nice dinner at the Canlis for the same price. I know the economy has been tough on everyone, but either the prices must be reduced or the portions made larger.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my wife here for herI took my wife here for her birthday. They set up a special table for us and had a card waiting. It was very nice. We got the 4 course meal and it was very good. The only complain is that my entree (the French Quarter) was far too salty. It was still good, but the salt level could be slashed. She got the Steak Lovers entree and loved it.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a long remantic dinnerThis was our first visit to the Melting Pot, and won't be our last. The ambience is wonderful, the food very good, and the service friendly and helpful. My one caveat - if you plan to do the full Four-Course option, plan on a two hour dinner.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA night without childrenThe food was amazing, the atmosphere was very romantic, and out waiter was fantastic. I was able to schedule for a 10:15pm sitting after a movie and although we were the last patrons in the restaurant we were never made to feel rushed in any way. For my husband and I it was a rare night without any of our 5 children but it felt like a very special occasion & like a secret getaway. This was a wonderful experience and I would definitely recommend to others!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite family birthdayOur favorite family birthday spot! And the manager was great in accommodating our large group. Excellent service and yummy food!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great night! ItWe had a great night! It was our first time there, and we really enjoyed ourselves. Our waiter was great, informative, and explained everything as he was preparing or bringing out food. The only disappointment was the steak/lobster meal. Spending the max amount on a meal, and only getting 3 small strips of steak was quite disappointing. The classic 4 course and the land/sea that others ordered had way more food. My husband ordered a side of lobster and was charged $15.95, which is fine. But charging $42 for the steak/lobster (we did the 4 course) dinner makes those 3 strips of steak quite expensive. I was disspointed by the lack of food for this option.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Melting Pot is a greatThe Melting Pot is a great place to celebrate!
