  • Disappointed with current state

    The current state of affairs is less than I'm used to. I have been coming to the melting pot at least 2-4 time a year since it first opened and the current state is disappointing. The bread was cold, as though just taken from a freezer as was the fruited chocolate fondue sauce. Our glasses of water were filled once and never again until we finally saw our server for dessert. Our server almost never checked up on us, seemed annoyed when we didn't immediately know what to order. I remeber havingn freshly melted chocolate and great service. It is sad to say that these seems to be no longer the case. The attitudes of our server was that we were another numbered table to her. I can't say that I would be interested in taking a date here again.

    I recommend this restaurant especially for Culinary Art students as there is a brief cooking lesson given in proper cooking techniques as you will be preparing your food using a magnawave single burner. Also loved the privacy area around the tables.

    we had a reservation, but they still made us wait an hour to have us seated. the service was super slow, it took our waitress forever to come around and we even had to get other waiters to come to our table to help us. it was a poor experience, overall.

    I enjoy this place. Cheese pots and chocolate pots are perfect. Cocktails are original and delicious. Service is great and your server does A LOT for you. My only issue is having to cook the main course, which can be a bit tedious. Pacing and ambiance were fine as well.

    The cheese and chocolate fondue are the best part. While the salads and dinner portion were great too, I could have skipped them and had just the cheese and chocolate fondues. However, the value for all 4 courses is very good.

    Fine when you're there for leisurely dinner but too long when you are w kids. Maybe getting a 2course meal instead would better the time. The service at the hostess stand was terrible. stood for 15 minutes before recognized. Hate to think what it's like when it's crowded. the server was ok; when my response to his "how were the salads" was " way too much dressing". He just ignored me. Not sure why he bothered to ask in the first place if he didn't care one way or another. Also odd - he purposely asked my husband if he wanted his dressing on the side but didn't ask me. Also eating in the basement never fails to bring my energy level down to nothing. Not sure if we will return. It seems to get worse and worse with each visit.

    We were all a bit anxious about having to cook our own food but the experience ended up being a lot of fun. Our server Alan was friendly and funny and explained the process to us thoroughly. The food was tasty, the dessert was by far our favorite. Overall it was a super fun experience that we all enjoyed.

    I made my reservation online, and put in a little note with it just detailing seating preference and what the reservation was for. I was greeted by a friendly hostess, I didn't have to mention a thing,I was seated to preference as per the note and our wait wasn't long(we went on a Sunday around 730). Our waiter was awesome great sense of humor, knew just the right time to check if anything was needed. We did the 4 course experience,which can be tweaked to your liking. They were a great team only hitch which I don't even think was that great b/c it didn't spoil my night but worth mentioning, the manager could've had a bit more tact, other than that it was a great night with a friendly group of people working at the white plains location.

    Went there on a second date. We had requested the Lovers Lane table but it wasn't available. The manager came over and specifically apologized for that, which I loved. The food is always fantastic. No pressure to order too much - i.e. spend more. Great service - extremely personable. Overall a wonderful experience!

    Went with my son, sister and nieces who have never been there before and they all loved it! Kids thought is was awesome to cook your own food. Our waiter was really nice and very attentive...The cheese fondues were so good and the chocolate dessert was a hit! Great place to go rather than the traditional dining...

    After descending to the front desk, the layout of the restaurant is a bit odd lots of narrow halls. The service is very good and the food also, especially the chocolate fondue. My kids love this place.

The waiter was very attentive to our needs and constantly asked if we needed anything. Great place to go. I highly recommend The Melting Pot for any outting. We will for sure go again soon.

    We go to the Melting Pot about once or twice a year and it is fun. I liked it when there were fewer choices. The cheese fondue was just ok, we ran out of cheese very quickly and there was not a lot of flavor to either pot of cheese we ordered. The entrée and desert were really good.

    The food is delicious but if you wanna skip the main course, make sure you get the cheese fondue appetizers and the CHOCOLATE FONDUE dessert course. You won't be disappointed. It's heavenly.

    We were celebrating our 5 month dating anniversary. So there is still a lot of kissing. They gave us a private booth, and it was perfect. There were little twinkling stars in the ceiling. The food was great, especially dessert and our server Alexis was wonderful. It was our first time and we needed a lot of direction. Alexis was patient and answered the same question 5 times without blinking an eye. :)

    We traveled an hour to the Melting Pot for a birthday celebration. The server was great, very on top of things. We like the appetizer and the desert. The main course we were surprised that we had to cook our own food. Everything was boiled in a broth and we were served raw shrimp, chicken and beef to soak in a boiling pot. We would of liked to be served a cooked main course and went back to the fondue pot for the desert. I kept telling my party that this was an adventure. I felt that it was an expensive adventure for what we received. We will not be returning.

    Service was great. Had a wonderful waitress. Only disappointment was that if you go with a large crowd 6 or more it's really hard to cook your food. The way the tables are set up, You have to stand up and try the other pots. I would only go back if it's 2 or 4 people. This is expensive. but overall a fun experience.

    I celebrated a romantic birthday at this restaurant recently and the fondue experience was amazing and exciting. I would not leave out any one of the 4-course dinner. The cheese was fondue was not too cheesy for the vegetables or the fruit. I would have preferred whole wheat bread for dipping but all else was fine. The salad dressing was exotic and tasty. The adventure of cooking your own food as you ate was awesome!. Then the dessert, the chocolate, I had yin and yang, best of both worlds, and not too sweet, but lip smacking!!

    This was my first visit to the Melting Pot and it will not be the last. From the first moment you walk in the door, the ambiance is breathtaking. That, in addition to some of the finest all-around and table side service on Earth, make this restaurant a must go! It is the perfect place for any special occasion or simply a night out with friends.
