    This was my 5th time going to this location and it was probably the worst time. My fiance and I went here for out anniversary so they put us in a secluded room in the back. The only problem was that it was really dark and kinda noisy. We could constantly hear the couple next to us talking (and complaining). Because of how small the space was, it got really hot from the steam from all the food. My other issue was that I had a couple of coupons that my mom got when she purchased a gift card for us and she was told by the manager that as long as we used them at that location, we could use them even after they were expired, but this was obviously not the case and we were told only one could be used for the confusion and to throw out the other.

    I took my boyfriend here for a special birthday dinner. We were seated quickly and everyone was very friendly and attentive. Our meal was fantastic and we enjoyed the ability to eat at our own pace. The Alpine cheese fondue was outstanding as was the rest of our meal. The amout of food in each course is more than sufficient, and sad to say, we didn't make it to the chocolate fondue :( because we didn't have any room left. I guess we'll have to come back for dessert!! Thank you to the Melting Pot for making Al's birthday one to remember. Thanks also for the balloon!! We will definitely be back!!

    My husband and I love going to The Melting Pot for date night. They run a lot of specials that we love to try. The staff is friendly and the food is excellent. This trip we tried a new fondue. It was prosciutto ans asparagus and was it ever delicious! We tried two new cocktails which were great as well! We'll be back for sure!

    We reserved a table for our daughter to celebrate her 13th birthday with two of her friends. The staff was friendly on the phone and friendly when we arrived. Our daughter got to have her own table with her friends, which pleased her tremendously. We were seated in a separate room in a booth with a window where we could clearly see our daughter's table. Our waiter, Rob, was knowledgeable about the menu and attentive to both our tables. He was friendly, humorous, and engaging. The manager stopped by to chat with us and ask about our dining experience. The staff gave my daughter a lovely signed card. The entire evening was pleasant: good food, good service, good ambiance. We would not hesitate to visit The Melting Pot again.

  • A Wonderful Anniversary Dinner
    NightOut
    Dined on 7/8/2014
    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.

    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!

    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!!!!
