The Melting Pot - Somerville
A great spot for couples and groupsThis was the first time my wife and I dined at The Melting Pot. Among all of the restaurants in Somerville, this one truly stands out with its concept. Our waiter was very friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and guided us through the process of how to cook our food in the fondue pots. I would recommend choosing the 4 course specials, which save you a couple of dollars compared to ordering a-la-carte. The ambiance is perfect for fondue-style dining.
My only criticism is directed toward the diners that were there Saturday night: DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN. We are all paying a premium for a unique dining experience, and it is incredibly rude toward the other customers and the restaurant staff to deal with their yelling and running around.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time!Went to the Melting Pot for a birthday dinner and it was a wonderful experience. The staff was helpful with their menus and pricing and the overall experience was great.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat local chainThis is the third Melting Pot I've visited, and it was exactly what I expected. Great fondue, friendly staff, quality breads/meats/desserts. Brownie bites covered in dark chocolate are how I wish I could end every meal.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food service is okWe went here to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious, however, our server lacked service. We asked for water, we got our cheese fondue and our salad before we got water. We had to flag down a manager to bring us water. From that point on the manager kept checking on our table. We really enjoyed our meal but the service definitely took away from it.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great timeWe enjoyed the experience, the flexibility we were offered with different diners needing options, and our server was a patient, friendly and very helpful young man!! Very nice wine choices. The only down was the items they give for dessert fondue. The consensus was that the cheesecake, strawberries, pound cake are great, the rest they can keep.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a fun evening. ServiceAlways a fun evening. Service was great.
