    Came as 3 friends and had a lot of fun! The food was great but the chocolate fondue was the best! Really reccomend that. Great place to go if you're looking for a fun place to eat. The restuarant was really nice and made a lot of business. Service was great.

    Overall very nice experience! Went on a monday and ordered off the "ladies night menu". Food was great! Cheese fondue/salad/chocolate fondue. This is a special each monday. However the waiter was only so so. He seemed young and maybe newer. He did not seem to remember any specials. We had to ask about the specials and he did not check on us. Overall good meal but other waiters have been better. Ceasar salad is awesome!!

    We have been to The Melting Pot on several occasions because we love fondue and it's really good there. But this time around, the menu had changed a little so there were fewer selections. We still enjoyed the food we ordered though. My problem is the service. On a few occasions we've had waitstaff forget things ordered, which was no exception this current visit. But this time we also had what seemed like a very inexperienced server. When she brought our drinks, she dropped them all over the table. Since we didn't get too wet, we decided to stay but at a different table. She also splashed our cheese fondue several times out of the pot as she prepared it, though, thankfully, not on us. Finally, she forgot the water we asked for for dessert.

    We regularly dine at The Melting Pot whether it be for a romantic dinner or a special event. We have attended the lunch with a princess with our 7-year old and they are so accomodating and friendly with children. We recently dined there on New Years Eve and the service and menu were outstanding. We left full and happy!

    disappointed in the service! our reservation was for 7:30 and they didn't seat us until close to 8:00. our server Hazel was not helpful or attentive to us. She did not ask if we have been there before and explain the menu to us. She did not help explain even after she saw us struggling. She didn't come back with waters after we requested a refill, and she didn't come back to check on us until after the cheese dip was gone- we wanted to ask for more veggies to dip. She didn't explain what she was pouring into the pot as the dip was being made, and she left the burners on low after handing us our plate of raw meat to cook. She just dropped the check off when she brought dessert, without asking if we needed anything else or saying thank you.

    Our friends were more than pleased. They thought the food was excellent, abience confortable, and service fantastic. They are the parents of two young daughters and are anxious to bring them in for the experience. They mentioned that the restaurant seemed very kid friendly in spite of the upscale look the place has.

  • Disappointing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 12/15/2013
    We have dined at this Melting Pot over the years for special occasions. It's usually where my kids choose for their birthdays - which was the case this time - my son's 19th birthday. When we got there for our 8:00 reservation it was extremely quiet, and appeared to only have two other tables of people there. The cheese course, which is usually the most fantastic part, was completely disappointing, as our server did not make the cheddar cheese the right way. It was drippy thin and usually is gooey thick. She said it will thicken up as it cools off - really? First time we'd ever heard that. Well it did not thicken up, and we sat there for at least 10 minutes waiting for her to come back and check. Very disappointed this time.

    I took my boyfriend to the Melting Pot for the first time as a birthday dinner and he loved it! It was a totally new experience for him and he really enjoyed it. He thought the heating table was the coolest thing ever lol. I've been to the Melting Pot before and have never been disappointed yet. The entire staff is friendly and I'll continue to recommend it to everyone I know. Thanks for making his special day, even more special.

    It was a triple birthday celebration: My wife, her twin sister, and my daughter. We had such a wonderful time there on our anniversary, that I chose to return. Kathy, the manager, couldn't have been more helpful, our server Donna couldn't have been more delightful, and the food couldn't have been more delicious. Fun for everyone, from 6 year's old and up (but I'm not going to tell you up to what - LOL). Highly recommended for a special date, or a special occasion.

    I took my wife here for her birthday. We got a couples booth in the back and had a great time. The couples booths could have been a bit more secluded. Our "neighbors" were a little loud, but nothing overly offensive. Seems like a great place for a group dinner, the style promotes conversation and interaction.

    I wouldn't go there again for dinner. Way too expensive per entree. And the vegetarian option was not much more than the "side" vegetables offered as an entree. Totally worth it for both the cheese course and the dessert course though!

    Last two times at the Melting Pot I experienced poor service. The food is always good and the atmosphere is fun! Come here often with girlfriends or to celebrate birthdays. I expect good service to go along with the great vibe of the restaurant. Maybe I just had bad luck, but two times in a row?? Maybe I will give it one more shot, but if I experience the same poor service, I will cross this place off my list
