    My mom and I went here for the first time and it was really fun! Prepare to stay for a LONG time, it took 2 1/2 hours for us to have cheese fondue, chicken, and chocolate fondue. Will definitley go again, but most likely just for dessert cause it was easily the best part.

    This was our first time going to the Melting Pot and although we enjoyed our meal, we found the frequent visits and the length of time spent at the table side by the waiter to be a little to much. He tried really hard but was maybe a little overzealous.

    The waiter was rushing through every step.. Drinks weren't what we ordered. Salads were below expectations. Cheese fondue is ok but nothing exceptional.2 hours without an entree is really bad service!! We left after we had the cheese fondue, small plates of salad, then we decided to skip the entrees in which the waiter called (meat) thinking it's meat to dip with cheese rather than calling it main course!! after an hr & a half of waiting we decided to go for the desert with cappacionos to cut it short.The coffee was cold I jugged it down in 2 minutes. The chocolate was really soupy & sweet it wouldn't stick on anything. Left unsatisfied !We reserved 2 days in advance to get 4 course meal.. Very disappointed !

    Our server was excellent! Recomendations were good. Best part was dessert, of course! Would suggest a minute glass timer to keep track of cooking time,as conversation takes over and time passes. Probably would return for dessert, as I cook at home and would rather a meal prepared.

    The food was incredible, especially the Alpine Fondue, which tested really close from the "real" one you can find in France. And the price are really good. It is not expensive when you think about what you are eating !! The wine list is really good, with a lot of different choices (but maybe a little bit too expensive on this part)

    I think if it was not for our waitress we would still be there. It was a 3 hour dinner and the only reason it was not longer is because she kept going back into the kitchen to help them get our oils,cheeses,deserts,......etc. Food was fine, just disappointed in the whole experience. They had plenty of staff.

    This was our 26th Anniversary. My husband asked for suggestions from facebook and out of 30 suggestions we decided on this restaurant choice and out of our 26 years this was our favourite. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. Peter who was the matrody we believe was awesome he made the experience even more memorable. We decided to take every suggestions he suggested and he was so right we even ordered the four course wine and we so recommend that...we cannot say any more good things about it. Must go.

    The food was fantastic like always. We were there early in the evening, no other guests around us. Every other table in our section needed to be cleaned. There was ice & food on the floor. Our server was really nice, but super slow, especially considering we were one of the only tables occupied.

    We joined the food but we were sweating by the end of the meal. We were stuck in a corner and extremely uncomfortable. Server was great. He was sweating too. Next time I go I will make sure I'm not stuck in that room. We were a party of 6 and way too crowded. No room on the table for drinks and plates and stuff. I had asked to surprise my friend for her birthday and had to remind the server. Food was excellent though. Kinda dissappointed.

    Overpriced, especially since we had to cook our own food! Waitress referred to us as "you girls" . I'm almost 50! I am not a girl. She was trying too hard. Overall it was Okay, but not on my short list of fun places or "great food" places. Would try again with my husband but not girlfriends or a group......

    We celebrated our anniversary at the Melting Pot in Troy and had a fabulous meal. The waiter was very accommodating and the manager even stopped by a few times to make sure everything was good. At dessert, the waiter brought out 2 chocolate covered strawberries on plate which had "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on it as well as 2 glasses of champagne - all complimentary. Can't wait to go back!

I checked the reviews to get an idea of what I was getting myself into monetarily and the prices were cheap compared to what I was expecting. Cheaper than Morton's (also a great spot)! Overall great dining experience, not a single thing to complain about.

    Seated at the last booth, by the exit door, the traditional dim lighting was lost. My knife had residue of a previous meal on it. Our server was friendly, but not nearly attentive enough when needed. Portion of cheese in the first pot was inadequate, as was the Chocolate desert course. Both were consumed completely before the dipping items were gone. Our choice of desert was forced to be made half-way through the main course, and then that course was cleared too early. The check was delivered to the table by a bus-person. Crude! The table and heating surface are showing their age. Wood trim at the side of the table has been scrubbed so many times that the finish is gone, along with the wood stain. Bare wood is showing! Not returning.

    First off we waited 20 mins before finally ASKING for a waitress. During those 20 mins no one stoped and asked "have you been helped" which I'm sure was evident from the look on our faces. If that wasn't enough this entire meal took 3 hours!!! I've never spent 3 hours just going to dinner! The food was mediocre and over priced even for the restaurant week price which is what I paid. I definitely won't be returning
