  • "The food was great and the service was very good except for waiting a long time for the food to arrive while our pot boiled hot steam in our faces. Overall we enjoyed our first time Melting Pot experience. "

  • "This was our first time dining at The Melting Pot and I must say it was one of the best experiences I've ever had.... I was desperately trying to find a great place to take my fiancée to eat to celebrate his birthday and he absolutely loved it! He has been telling everyone about the wonderful food and service...we definitely plan to return to The Melting Pot as soon as possible!"

  • "We go to Melting Pot for special celebrations, this one being for H.S. son's straight A report card - usually very attentive waitstaff, but we unfortunately had a waitress that either had too many tables, or was so new, she wasn't able to handle the tables given to her. We waited A LONG TIME between courses - so much so, the broth boiled out of the pot on the table, and more had to be added! We've had MUCH better experiences at this restaurant, so we notified mangement so they would be aware of the deficiency. Management was very receptive to our constructive criticism, and hopefully, will retrain the waitress. On a more positive note - the food was excellent! The Beer/Bacon cheese dip was to die for! :O"

  • "I took the whole family to dinner Saturday. We were seated quickly and the food was as expected, but the service truly was lacking. We were in the restaurant for a little over two hours and half of that time was with empty, dirty dishes on our table. It was well over a half-hour between us finishing the entree and the waiter (who was extremely polite and knowledgable) serving us dessert, with our dishes sitting empty in front of us. We were told there was a bussing shortage, but the waiter also lacked checking our beverage levels nor did he take any plates from us. For the cost and the lack of good service, I do believe this will be our last dinner there."

  • "We were sat quickly and our waitress was very friendly. I brought someone who had never dined there because I've always had a very pleasant experience. However, it was not so this night. Food was still amazing, but our waitress seemed to have forgotten us on multiple occasions. I had to ask another tables waitress twice for assistance. Ô Tables that had arrived 15-20 minutes after us had caught up to our entree and even surpassed us by dessert. When going to a restaurant and paying that amount of money, I prefer not to hunt down my waitress. It's definitely not made me want to return anytime soon.....in hopes of not getting our same server. Again, the food was still great, but service is important in a restaurant as well."

  • "We've dined here before, been ages. Now we have kids, thought they'd enjoy it. They loved it. Just too crowded at small booth for maximum enjoyment. My only critique might be seasoning of proteins. The cooking styles just didn't add enough flavor, especially if the guest doesn't care for the sauces provided."

  • "I took my Wife here for our Anniversary and this was our first time Dining at The Melting Pot. Made our reservation, the minute we got there we were seated and the waitress explained all the menus to us. From the time we were seated and starting dipping into the fresh yummy Spinach and Artichoke Dip Cheese Fondue I could not stop eating. I could not believe how good it was, I never had fondue until that moment. After that we got out Salads which were pretty good, then came the main course, let me tell you, that was a lot of food. Had fresh Filet mignon, Teriyaki Steak, Chicken, Shrimp and Lobster. We got the Mojo Cooking style and let me tell you, every thing that was cooked in that broth tasted amazing. Desert was amazing as well. Go!"

  • "My husband and I go to the melting pot before each deployment and we have never had a bad experience. The food is always great and so is the service. This time was even better than the rest because we were able to actually finish it all:) we made sure to tell the manager how awesome our service was...even the busses was friendly and attentive. We have already recommended it to all of our friends and will be back in a year or so:)"

  • "The dining experience is memorable for first time guests'. My daughters thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience of cooking via Fondue pots and this is now their favorite place to dine!"

  • "I absolutely loved this restaurant. The food was great, but the fun was even better. We had an excellent waitress who made the experience even better. I've heard a lot about how pricey this place is, but I have to say that I thought it was worth every dollar. It's not someplace I could go every week, but it's definitely on my special occasions list!"

  • "Aside from waiting over an hour for our reservations. It wasn't bad. Just wish our wait wasn't so long and if it was they could have given us a heads up."

  • "My first time ever going to a Melting Pot Restaurant and this one sure made and outstanding impression! Great food and our waitress made everything about us! I am extremely gluten intolerant and they had more then enough options for me to choose from which is usually very rare at other restaurants."

  • "This was our second visit to The Melting Pot. The first time was several years ago and the only reason we never went back was it is kind of expensive. However, we tried it again, and yes, it still is kind of expensive, but the service was outstanding! Our waitress, Bradley, was exceptional and walked my wife and I through the menu and explained the different options. She had a vibrant personality and made our dining experience one to remember. The food was very good and the serving sizes warrant the price. The atmosphere was romantic and The Melting Pot is a great choice for that special occasion or "just because.""

  • "The cheese fondue had always been a big hit with our family. The salads were great too. Some of these meats were a bit too spicy for some of our friends. We had reservations for a large group and they seated us an hour after our reservation. It was a bit of a problem because it was a surprise party and our guests had to stand in the front hostess area for the hour to wait. The hostess tried to do the best she could."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Great for group and special occasions. Having spent time in Europe - where fondue affairs prevail - I was reminded that dining is more a matter of socializing rather than merely a meal. And while the food was excellent, the slow-paced affair is perfect for a romantic evening or a multiple-couple event. We will return!!!!"

  • "This was a perfect date night for my gf and I. If you've never fondue'd before you should definitely try it at least once! That being said, the prices were sky high. I agree it's a very romantic atmosphere, but I couldn't help but feel a little cheated when it cost over $100 for just my girlfriend and I. Food portions are small, and I just can't figure out why it costs so much when they don't even have a chef. They put water in a pot, boil it on a burner on your table, and put seasoning in it. Then they hand you raw food and you get to cook it yourself. It's very romantic, but you're paying very high prices just to cook the food yourself? My gf and I did love it though, and we'll probably go back a few times. Be prepared for a empty wallet."

  • "The food was great! The menu is a bit confusing, however our server broke it down giving us just the items we wanted."

  • "This was my 3rd time at the melting pot. This time, my two daughters (11 and 13) joined us and they absolutely loved it. The food is always delicious. Service was outstanding! We waited a little longer than expected between courses, but the food being delicious almost makes it worth waiting sometimes."

  • "Date night for us ... the first in a while. The staff was very attentive and helped us enjoy the entire dinner. The food was fantastic and the experience was fun for us. The price was around $75 for the way we chose to dine ... throw in a few mixed drinks and such and our bill was $106 ... not bad for an evening of relaxed conversation and time together. We will definitely return with friends in the future. It was money well spent!"

  • "We had a fantastic waitress, we were a little bit unorganized since we had planned to do just dessert and then our group slit and wanted half dinner and then the other half dessert. She did great just going with the flow of our group and getting all our needs met! The manger did the same as well, and made sure that we were all happy! The night was one of the best nights our MOPS- (Moms of preschooler) Moms night out's that we have ever had!!! Thank you !"

  • "We always leave Melting Pot asking ourselves why we don't go there more often, but then I guess it wouldn't be such a treat if we did. Our food has, without exception, been so good, and the service amazing. I told our server this time that she was a "delight"!"

  • "This was my second time at The Melting Pot. It had a wonderful atmosphere, with outstanding food and service. I'm not used to the tabletop cooking, but plan to get used to it. I am looking forward to my next special occasion. I know my friends will love it."

  • "I have been to this restaurant multiple times and always enjoy it. My girlfriend loves making this our destination for special occasions so we go at least a couple times a year. This visit was during the valentines weekend and I was SURE to book over a month in advance. I really enjoy there "normal" or full menu but for valentines we were given only one option, a four course dinner. Don't get me wrong, it was wonderful, but had no idea that was the only option for the evening until siting at the table. The restaurant surely took advantage of the holiday with the price, but as always did not disappoint. I will note the service was fair, we expect and usually recieve better when we have dined here in the past. In all a very nice nite. Thanks"

  • "Perfect date night restaurant. I always have a great time when going. Since we do "make" our own food, it takes a little longer than an avg restaurant and gives u a nice long dinner time so that you don't feel rushed."

  • "My wife and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary at the Melting Pot. We were very impressed with the service and staff, all the courses were explained in great detail and the staff went above and beyond to give there personal recommendations on some of the food that was being offered. The food was excellent, it did not seem to be a lot but we both walked out very full and satisfied. The atmosphere was perfect with the low lighting and quiet surroundings. I would recommend this to anyone wanting an enjoyable night out with there loved one."
