A word from The Melting Pot - Somerville
Located close to the Bridgewater Commons Mall in historic downtown Somerville, The Melting Pot brings a truly unique upscale/casual dining experience to Central New Jersey. At The Melting Pot, fondue becomes a memorable and interactive four-course dining experience where patrons can "dip into something different."

Whether you're celebrating a birthday, anniversary, a long overdue date night, or celebrating with a group, The Melting Pot of Somerville is perfect for any occasion. Tailor your visit with a four-course dining experience including cheese fondue, salad, entree and dessert. Or, come by for fondue cheese paired with that perfect glass of wine from our extensive selection. That's not to say, we haven't had more than a few stop by to satisfy that chocolate craving after a movie.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great as usual! Thank you for listening to my suggestions last time about the things that were lacking on the past visit."

  • "Have been there several times - always great service and great food."

  • "Got a flat tire on the way to the restaurant on Valentine's Day and was able to reschedule dinner for the following Tuesday. As usual, food was delicious and service was top notch. There were a few hiccups with the equipment, but nothing that could have been prevented by the staff. Despite this, we'll definitely be back!"

  • "Our experience was great as usual, however I wanted to comment on a few details regarding the food prep. The salads were good however the California salad was missing the gorgonzola cheese as described in the menu. The chef salad my friend ordered was missing the bacon on it, also as described in menu. Another thing that was amiss was that apparently cocktail sauce is no longer served with the shrimp. As such shrimp were not ordered. We did not get tortilla chips like usual with the cheese; yet we saw other tables with this. Things ought to be consistent and prepared as described. Overall, our meal was great as usual but I feel that attention to detail is important and there were things lacking with what is usually a perfect visit."

  • "I made reservations for my girlfriend and I to go here on valentines day. We were excited for the experience and were not disappointed with that. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable. However, the food was below what we were expecting. There was only a fixed menu that night. It would have been nice if this was optional. I do not like salad but the fixed menu came with 2 salads. Additionally, we both do not like salmon or pork but it came with our dinner. For the price ($205 with tax+tip), we felt like the menu left much to be desired. The dessert, however, was amazing. At the end of dinner, we had a lot of negative comments to say about the dinner. We might come back for another special occasion but probably just for dessert."

  • "Nothing special for a fondue place. Food is average,they use really cheap.shredded cheese, and the meats aren't they great quality. Very expensive for what you get."

  • "I decided to try out the melting pot with my family, and overall I wasn't extremely impressed. Expecting a bustling, loud, MaxBrenner-ish dining experience, I was surprised when I found the restaurant having only four people. The waiter was slow, and the food was minimal. After an almost excruciating experience, I can say the best part of the melting pot was the dessert, and that's it. If you ever go to the melting pot, never come hungry and be sure to skip straight to dessert. But be willing to open your wallet wide because it is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE."

  • "We were there for over 4 hours! By the time our waitress actually brought us our check it was 10:30 at night. (After we started at 7:15) after waiting more than 20 minutes for her to come back we all stood up and brought the check to the front desk, where there was still no one. Our waitress had to be searched out. Throughout the evening she forgot to get us several things we asked for, and part of my order was even missing. We had to ask for water refills over 4 times, each time waiting for over 10 minutes before it came. We eventually started to ask whatever member of the waitstaff walked by. Terrible experience for being charged over 200.00 for food we cook ourselves. I will never be back."

  • "Chose this location as a first date venue. It was a great selection because we were able to interact and talk and cook dinner together. The Cheese is always amazing (cheddar) and the chocolate dessert are always enjoyable."
    Dined on 12/9/2013
  • "I think everyone knows what you get when you go to the melting pot. The server was nice but sub-par. I know they train these people because of the logistics of having raw food and a heating plate at your table. She didnt elaborate on any of that and was a bit slow..."

  • "My daughter and her 5 friends went to Melting Pot to celebrate her 16th Birthday. They had a great time. Waiter was very helpful (first time at the resteraunt for the girls). They had vegetarian options. Girls said the best part is the app and the dessert. Bit pricy so a special occasion place."

  • "What could be more fun than cooking your own dinner? Interactive fun and tasty treats with always wonderful service. The Melting Pot aims to please --- the food is good but it pays to go just for the cheese and chocolate!!"
