Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this week, and for dinner I suggested the Melting Pot. The first time we ate at The Melting Pot was in Tallahassee, Florida when I was attending law school, and my wife loved the place. It immediately became one of the places we would go for special occasions when we could find the money to spend on a nice night out. I thought that this would be a special touch for a special night. My daughter agreed, and when I suggested it to my wife she immediately did as well. The St. Petersburg Melting Pot is had a wonderful atmosphere for a special night out. We had the "Big Night Out," which was a four course meal. It makes for a long evening, but a true evening out -- not just a meal."

  • " server was very nice but was gone for long periods of time. Took what seemed like forever to get drinks and to go on to next course. cooking the main meal took forever due to not being able to get the temp of oil right. over all very disappointed in the experience will be a long time before we go back again"

  • "Very enjoyable for a couple or small group. Nice atmosphere and something different. Overall a little more costly - wouldn't do it every week, but for a special occasion, it's a good bet."

  • "I really like the Melting Pot and have been to several different locations. The only drawback here was the ridiculous wait. We made reservations and still had to wait 45mins- there is definitely room for improvement here!"

  • "Had been to The Melting Pot many times but this time I made a reservation for 14 to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was nice being able to all sit around one table. Many in our party had not been to this restaurant before and they seemed to enjoy it very much. Despite the large number in our party the server was able to keep up fairly well. Wonderful atmosphere. Equally wonderful food. Great experience, as always!"

  • "Doug was an awesome, engaging and thorough server and the fact that the manager, Malcolm, makes a point to stop by each table is a nice touch. The hostess was very friendly and remembered us from our last visit. Love this place."

  • "It was our first time and we were uncertain what we should expect. We were greeted promptly, our reservation confirmed, and escorted to the quiet table we requested. We were introduced to our waiter, Dillon. He helped make the evening. I told him of my temporary dairy-free dietary restriction and he explained how their dinner process works and how to could modify it for a dairy-free dining experience. When asked, he offered great suggestions and made us feel happy to be seated at his table. We opted for some appetizers and a trio of fish entrees. Everything was absolutely delicious. We were a bit skeptical of 'cooking our own fish at the table' but we followed his instructions and it was amazing. It is high up on our Return To list. "

  • "I reserved a private booth on May 16, 2014 @ 7:00 pm. I was surprising my girlfriend (now fiancé) with a proposal dinner and had planned ahead with the managers/waiters to have roses and a nice decorated carving with "Will you marry me?" brought out. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! They had our table prepared and set beautifully, the managers and waiter came out introduced themselves and made sure we were well taking care of all night. They gave us complimentary champagne and congratulated us on our engagement. The food (lobster tail & steak) was excellent! We enjoyed every bit of the food and the outstanding customer service was far better! They made our special night one to remember! We will definitely return here for our anniversary!!!! "

  • "Placed us in an un-airconditioned room 20 minutes late of our reservation time. Apparently the A/C was broken. The cheese and chocolate fondue were very good. The entree was fair. Just not fond of fried meat. Wait staff was friendly"

  • "The Melting Pot is a great change of pace. A perfect place for a fancy first date, a romantic occasion or a fun family outing. It's a little on the pricey side but the ambiance, the service and the memorable experience make it well worthwhile. "

  • "Overpriced, salad was not good . Salmon was good, vegetables were poor and a very small quantity. Would be a good place to go for happy hour and perhaps a cheese fondue. That would be the only reason I would return. "

  • "This was a fantastic early evening with my family. My two boys (7&10) thoroughly enjoyed the experience as they had never been there. The food was great and the service was outstanding. I would strongly recommend this place when you are looking for something new and exciting."

  • "We held a bday party dinner here and had a great time. Staff is excellent and was helpful with menu ordering. Since we didn't know how or what we were actually ordering, it is best to ask for a recommendation! We could have used table top timers for cooking! We all drowned ourselves in decadent chocolate desserts... Melt in your mouth great."

  • "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."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "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."
