This was my boyfriend and I's
first time going to the Melting Pot. It was absolutely amazing. The menu was a little confusing but out server, Jordan, explained it so well and recommended the perfect dishes for our taste. The experience alone was worth the money paid. A little pricey but SO worth it!!!!!!"

Went out for a date night with my
husband. Requested a quiet section and they obliged. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable. Overall the food was good. It was the first time we went there but will definitely go back."

The Melting Pot is one of the only
"chain" restaurants that we frequent. The food is always amazing from the cheese course to the chocolate. Service is generally hit or miss here at the Syracuse location. Our server tonight was awesome...very fun and energetic. If you're looking for great food and the experience of fondue...The Melting Pot is your place to visit. Plan to be there for about 2 hours or more. The courses aren't rushed and you can just have a great night with a special someone or small group of friends."

Of course the food here is to die
for. But what keeps bringing us back is the amazing service. Every person we've come in contact seems to truly love their job and knows everything there is to know about the food, drinks, etc."

My wife and I attended with
another couple and combined we have 5 children. It was a welcome night away from the kids, peaceful, relaxing. Not rushed. Able to enjoy the meal. Others don't like the pace but they did not have kids. It was a perfect night out for us with great food!"

Haven't been in years to a Melting
Pot...decided to try because it's in Destiny USA. Let me just say that we've had fondue in Europe, so may be a bit biased. If you've had the real thing, don't go, unless you're willing to risk being disappointed. The Swiss Cheese fondue did not have the right blend or consistency of cheeses, the kirshwasser had no effect on taste, and we had to stop the server from emptying a too-large portion of garlic into the mix. We also did a broth fondue, which should have been a simple vegetable broth, but was on-fire spicy from the start. Had to send it back and get another pot of broth. Did an oil fondue for tempura - that was good. Accompaniments like veggies and apples were great. Ambiance inside is dark /dull."

Our server was the best, he knew
his stuff and made sure we were well taken care of!! He explained everything to us and gave many good suggestions! As a total surprise to us our server brought us girls each a glass filled with chocolate dirzzled on the glass, whip cream and a large strawberry dipped in chocolate on top, and a lit birthday candle!!! We thought our husbands did this, no it was our server!!! We called that GREAT customer service!!! We had the best time and will sends all our family and friends your way!! Thank you for making our celebration a great one!!"

Going to the Melting Pot is a true
culinary experience. I love the pace at which you eat because you are cooking pre-portioned food in a variety of cooking "styles." I never feel stuffed after the meal and I can enjoy the rich flavor in the extremely fresh food they serve. I have been there there three times now, and while the setup is intimidating at first, the experience quickly becomes fun and exciting when everyone understands what to do! I would definitely recommend the Melting Pot to anyone looking for an exciting and delicious dining experience"

The Melting Pot gave us a great
date night event. The food was amazing, and the experience was even better. You don't know a true fondue dining experience until you go to The Melting Pot."

The hardest working staff I've
ever seen! Excellent service and food that's a lot of fun, especially with a group."

service and atmosphere was good.
we enjoyed the cheese fondue and the salad also the dessert but did not like the entree, we had 2 differant cooking styles but disliked both. we will probably not return to this restaurant."

We went to the Melting Pot for my
daughter's birthday. The food was very good as always, but the server was not very attentive. At one point, my daughter spilled her drink, and though the server walked by several times, she did not help us clean up, or even take away the small pile of wet napkins that resulted when we cleaned up the spill ourselves. On the plus side, the manager came by and was very friendly and we appreciated that. We like this restaurant and we will go again."

This was our 5th visit to a
Melting Pot and we have never been disappointed. The ambiance is always quiet and romantic the service superb and the food is made to your liking (since you cook it in the fondue). This time we opted for the 4 course dinner with the basic cheese fondue appetizer (with unlimited stickers), house salad topped with egg, a fresh California salad and two different entrees, the classic and fondue fusion. The entree variety was very good with lobster, shrimp, beef, pork, crab and a variety of vegetables. The chocolate fondue dessert, had a good variety of stickers which were unlimited. Service was attentive but not overbearing. If any downside it was that salads arrived before we had finished our appetizer fondue."

My boyfriend and I were
celebrating and the Melting Pot was perfect for our date/little occasion. The service was great and dining was an experience! :-)"
Dined on 9/17/2013
The Melting Pot is a nice place to
go if you want a predictable night out. The food is good, not too imaginative and just about anything you order will be good. I find it's a good place to eat if you're in an unfamiliar city and need a decent place to have a slow meal. However, you will see families celebrating birthdays and people in T Shirts. I'm not complaining just expressing the facts. The service is always good, and the staff is always careful as possible with seating."

Wonderful! We had great food, an
excellent waiter, and a fun time."

Extremely romantic! I requested

This was a great experience. We
loved the food and it was a lot of fun cooking in the pots. The was was great but when th dessert came it was heaven. Pricey but a great experience."

The staff was friendly and the
food is fun. Not a place to get stuffed, but definitely enough food to be satisfied. We were celebrating a birthday and had four children ages 6,8,11,12, and two adults. We ordered entrees, drinks, dessert. There is a children's menu. It was great fun."

Our meal met all of our
expectations. We had gone to a Melting Pot in California, so we knew that it would not be a quick meal. Our cheese appetizers were delicious as were our entrees. We ordered 3 four course dinners and 1 entree only for 4 people and it was more than enough. Next time we will order 2 four course dinners for 4 of us. Dessert was great, except no one liked the marshmallows. The manager stopped by to see how things were going, he was very friendly. Later he apparently thought we waited too long for our entree (to be honest we were just starting to notice it had been a while when they arrived---so it couldn't have been that long). Anyway we got a free round of drinks for the table for our wait. We will definitely go bck."
Dined on 7/13/2013
It was our first time at the
restaurant and I have to say we were confused on our options but the wait staff simplified it and walked us through step by step with personal recommendations. It was a lot of fun!!! Loved cooking our own food and just the general set up. Exceeded my expectations! Great job guys, keep it up! Also, the person I was with received an "okay" review from a friend before we went and you exceeded her expectations as well she loved it!"

I was treated to Mother's Day at
the Melting Pot and it was great. The experience was the best I've had at the restaurant. I think it just matters so much when you go-when they are busy it's really hard to get good service-when they aren't it is a much better, personal experience. Mother's Day it was not full like it usually is, and so our server was fantastic and really explained everything very well. The food was great. I missed the regular menu options but still enjoyed the special occasion menu."

Our Server was amazing! My Husband
& I had sined there before but he took the time to explain everything to our daughter and make her feel involved in the expierence."
Dined on 4/26/2013
Food is good but very over priced,
had reservation for 9:30, just for chocolate fondue and drinks. It took 25 minutes to get drinks and we were pushed out as they stated they were closing. Would not go back very unprofessional and rude."
Dined on 4/19/2013
This was the first time I have
ever been to a melting pot and I have all intentions on going back! They welcomed us with open arms, and had a smile on their face the whole time. Our server Max, was beyond amazing. When he served us he was so friend and talked to us like he knew us for years. The whole atmosphere was very welcoming and I can honestly say I have never had service like this before, best experience of my life. The food was beyond amazing too, it allowed me to open up and try new foods, and i will recommend melting pot to everyone! This was the best restaurant experience I have ever had. I look forward to coming back!"

For me it was my second time. They
were accomadating when we arrived 1 hr early. The food portions were smaller especially for 3 people."
