  • "I love the food here - it's always cooked just the way I want it, lol. I had the HOTTY special with the filet, terriyaki sirloin and bbq pork. All three of these were excellent meats, which cooked well in the bourginon style. The salad was delicious with the house dressing. The vegetables were beautiful, and cooked excellently. The green-goddess as always, is to die for. Dessert was a ying and yang chocolate which did not disappoint! It was truly the perfect meal!"

  • "My husband & I recently dined @ The Melting Pot during their promotion of HOTTY (husband of the the year). We had viewed the menu for the promotion on their website & booked a reservation. Upon being seated however, there was no mention of the promotion. We asked about it and was then given the special menu. Just a minor inconvenience, but a little awkward because it sort of makes you feel like you're just there for a bargain. Waiter was very good, food was delicious and atmosphere was nice, but next time we will ask to be seated in the back of the restaurant which I understand is more cozy."

  • "The Melting Pot in St. Petersburg has a very nice, relaxing atmosphere that is perfect for a romantic dinner out, or for any other special occasion. This is NOT the place to go if you want a quick dinner. You will be cooking your food as you go in the fondue pot, so dinner will take longer than it would in a traditional restaurant. However, the food is very good and worth the wait, and you will never feel like you are rushed. You can have a lot of good food and good conversation with your date! One drawback is that it is very pricey. Not a restaurant most of us could afford to eat in every week. Dinner for two, with one glass of wine each, will run you about $150 with tax and tip."

  • "We have been to this restaurant before and thought the service was poor and the food was over priced. The only reason we went back was because I received an email from the Melting Pot about a discount promotion that was taking place. We went again, hoping for a better outcome then the last time ad it was! Our server was wonderful and made sure we knew everything we needed to know. I was very impressed this time."

  • "Went to the event Labeled Hotty (husband of the the year) which was an excellent deal in the first place. They seated us pretty quickly and the manager even came over personally to hand over the tshirt that was part of the promotion. The waitress was very friendly and helpful with ordering (food and drink wise). Absolutely wonderful service with delicious meal."

  • "I love Melting Pot. Their new customized menu to pick what you want is awesome. The pick 3 entree' is my absolute favorite part of the meal. I had the Pacific White Shrimp and 2 helpings of the Teriyaki Marinated Sirloin -- all amazing. We did the Cheddar Cheese fondue, to which the bread bowl was my best friend. After eating the cheese and entree we of course finished the night off with Chocolate Fondue -- customizing the s'mores to include oreo cookies as well as graham crackers. I absolutely love the new blondies on the chocolate fondue plate, they taste like chocolate chip cookie dough deliciousness. We have a wonderful night! Can't wait to go back."

  • "We usually go to the melting pot for Romantic dinners;but we took a group of 8 with us for my husband's birthday, and it was more the delightful the people that we took with us have never done a fondue style dinner and we had a great time as usual. I like it because the music is it too loud and blaring and you didnt have to scream over it ; we had our own private room for 8, our waitress was to die for fun and very very helpful that their menu. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that was a fun and delicious dinner."

  • "As always, our experience at The Melting Pot was stellar on our latest visit. We had come for our teenage daughter's birthday, and I think she felt very indulged for the day! I had made a note of her birthday on the online reservation form, but was surprised to see balloons and chocolates waiting for her upon arrival. What a nice touch. The server was very friendly, and the food was fantastic. Hail to the dark chocolate fondue!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "the cheddar fondue was delicious as was the s'mores fondue for dessert. the rest of the meal was tasty but not my favorite part of the meal. Our server, Rob, made a red wine suggestion that complimented the meal well. He was very attentive to our table and allowed the children time to explain what we were there celebrating. Can't wait to go back to try the dark chocolate fondue!"

  • "My girlfriend and I went to the St. Pete Melting Pot to celebrate her birthday. The menu had changed a bit since the last time we were there, making it in some cases, more affordable. Our experience was fabulous. Even though we arrived 35 minutes before our reservation, we were seated immediately, in the private booth that we had requested. Our server Dylan was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. The food, as always was outstanding."

  • "I always love going to the Melting Pot. This was my first time at this location, but it won't be the last. One thing I remembered about the other locations was how cold they were, I figured to keep the temp down due to heat pots/tables. I warned my friends to bring a sweater, but it was unneeded. There temperature was perfect. We had a great waiter, Jason, who explained the menu to everyone . Even though I had been to the Melting Pot before there had been some changes and he went over all of them. He made a point to get our drinks quickly while we decided on the cheese and helped us compromise on the cooking both when we were at a stand still! I had a terrific birthday."

  • "I was ecstatic that the menu included gluten free options. I took my husband here for his birthday. Everything was wonderful. Great selections. Helpful staff who explained everything and made wonderful suggestions. Will definitely go back!"

  • "We went with a group of 7 for a birthday celebration, set menu, the extra $20 for balloons and a picture was a great touch. The restaurant is in a great historic building with plenty of romantic nooks for couples. The service was exceptional, very friendly and helpful. The wine list was overpriced. The cheese fondue was good, but too much wine. The main course had a variety of proteins to choose from, all were delicious. The oil and Mojo broths were the best. Needless to say the desert fondue was perfect. Overall, we had a wonderful time, the smaller the group the better, perfect for couples. Thank you Melting Pot!"

  • "Melting pot is a unique experience inviting all of the senses. You get to cook your food to your liking and enjoy the company of your friends and loved ones while you eat and enjoy the full dinner experience without the prep work of cooking in your own kitchen. Everything is artfully laid out for you to please your eyes and the sauces are prepared your any palette. Choose your delight with even more choices of combinations of meat platters, more choices for cheeses and chocolates too. It is on the very expensive side if you are opting for the full experience, so we only opt for this restaurant every few years or so even though it is one of our favorites."

  • "We have dined here a number of times. The meal is always excellent. The service and ambience is superb. We usually are here for an anniversary or Valentine's day, and this is the restaurant for a romantic dining experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We dine at the melting pot about every 3 to 4 yrs. Just enough time to forget how expensive it is. Almost all other fine dining is better value. 2 of the very best are Roy's and Burn's Both of these restaurants we frequent several times a year. We could not justify a family function at the Melting Pot cost prohibitive. We may be back in 3-4 yrs"

  • "Worst table in the place. Server was kind but not competent. Very slow service, over 2.5 hours for the whole experience. The handle of the boiling pot was dripping soapy water all over the burner plate. Also, the price was extremely inflated being the day BEFORE Valentines but the price was never posted anywhere...not online or on the menu when we got there. Very displeased. My wife wrote a letter and has yet to get a response."

  • "Poor setting, table too small Wine service inferior Cheap balloon and chocolate gift Poorly monitored service of course as fonder overheated and burned food and undercooked cheese and desserts Had to remind staff to take picture from gift package $250 waste, not worth it!"

  • "Food was good, but we because it was a special night we had to share a table with another couple. they had a huge table that they arranged to be split in two with planters down the middle. It was a still quote but not ideal for a romantic evening such asValentines day."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I really only have one complaint regarding the restaurant. I had made a reservation for 8:30pm. We didn't get seated until almost 9:00pm. Not to mention that when we walked in, it took someone 5 minutes to acknowledge us while we were just standing there. A server, who ended up being our server, was the one that finally acknowledged us until the hostess came to the front. Aside from the waiting, the ambiance was nice, food was delicious, and the dessert was even better. Our server did a great job!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I love the ambiance of the restaurant. The staff were very pleasant and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. If your looking for a relaxing dinner and your extremely hungry, this is the place for you. I suggest getting the cheese fondue, salad and chocolate fondue, we also had entrees and that was too much food. Enjoy, we did."

  • "My boyfriend and I were celebrating our "still crazy for one another after 6 years". He had never experienced the Melting Pot, and my past visits have always been memorable. He being a newbee, asked questions. Many questions. And Doug (our waiter), was very patient and knew his stuff! My bf and I are very satisfied with the entire experience. Therefore, we WILL be back."

  • "We took my daughter here for her 14th birthday and it was spectacular. The server (Doug) made sure we understand how everything worked, explained or choices, and may have been the best server we have had in the past 2 years any where. The food was pretty good the low lighting made it difficult to really tell if the meat was cooked and only having one burner prevents you from having more than one cooking style or dessert. Our opinion is that the dessert was the best part and that is what would make us go back. The good thing is that you can just get dessert without getting the entire meal!"

  • "Went there for an anniversary dinner. Food and service was excellent. Atmosphere was wonderful except for the table across from our's spent some time looking at some video on a phone. That was obnoxious. Several families with young kids were there too. It is not the type of restaurant to bring such young kids to. One kid was kept amused with some very loud buzzing toy. None of this was the restaurant's fault. Just "born in a barn" customers. I would definitely go back."

  • "It took a little too long to get our food served. We saw two couples come in after us and served before us. There were three of us."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "We ordered the 4 course experience. I wish we just came for the cheese, salad and dessert. The entree course was bizarre. It is basically boiling meat and veggies in a broth. Our hot plate wasn't hot enough, so it took twice as long to boil the meat and veggies. The room we were in was also kept at arctic temperatures. I wish we knew the other rooms were warmer, because we both froze for 2 hours. Quality of the food was good. Service was ok, the waitress was pleasant."

  • "I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday. The experience started off fine, but after the hostess sat us in a booth that was tucked at the end of a hallway with three booths leading to it, it turned unpleasant. From the slow service i.e.( my girlfriend asked for another drink and the hostess brought out the drink menu and we never saw our server until our last course came out. ) to the unsavory characters in the booths leading to our booth, and being able to hear every detail of their conversation. I came out of this one disappointed."

  • "The food and ambience was great, but when you have an out-going, attentive server it really takes the dining experience over the top. Kudos to Doug Ryan, an exceptionally nice young man who really knows his job!"
