Diner Reviews
  • "If it is special occasion, or just for a different dining experience, this is the place to go. The servers are very courteous and do not try to rush you."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This place is amazing. It's great for so many occasions. It's super fun for first dates or groups because there's so much to do because of the fondue style dining. It's even better for special occasions or romantic events. They have different packages for the romantic. I got the package that included a bottle of champagne and a half dozen roses (the champagne was delicious) !! Fun but not super loud, and the way their tables and booths are set up, you are kind of in your own little world !! The service is good, but the server can either make the experience beyond your expectations, or just kind of serve your food. i've had both types so it's a hit or miss. Either way, would def recommend this place to my family and friends :)"

  • "Great place. The manager was wonderful and very alert. He went over and beyond to make sure everyone just not our table was being helped and also pitched in himself. I have not seen that ever happen and this manager deserves to be recognized. Job well done and the staff is amazing."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Food was great, service was great, and the privacy element was really nice. The only thing that was a tad bothersome was the steep price, but that is why I said it's great for special occasions, because most people want to spend a small sum on nice dinners for big events. Great place!"

  • "My bf and I were looking to have a nice, romantic dinner that would take a couple of hours and involve good food. We thought of the Melting Pot and had a great time."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Host and hostesses were very accommodating to us as there was confusion around our reservation time. Sarah our server was excellent and the food was fresh and extremely tasty."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Briefly - the service was terrific. Our waiter attended to us the right number of times. We were lucky, the party of 8 next to us kept getting the incorrect food delivered to the table. Food was terrific as the cheese and chocolate fondues were yummy! Be sure to ask for more bread and veggies for the cheese fondue - it doesn't quite cover what you need. The beef plates contained plenty for the 3 of us who ordered it as was the surf and turf. Only down side was trying to understand what's covered in your pricing by looking at the menu. Are salads free of $4.99? Which items cost extra? Also, Melting Pot rarely has a table open during prime time on most evenings. You have to book weeks in advance. Hint - Lease more space!!"

  • "This was our second trip here. It's a great experience for a group. The meal can get a little pricey, but the food and staff are great. We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "great experience. very pricey, but great for special occassions."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "One of the things I love about the Melting Pot is the variety. We got a cheese fondue for the first course that I've never had before. Every visit I find something new or something else to try and I'm never disappointed."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "It was so good ! Sarah L was such a great server, she explained the entire menu to us ! She was very Patient too"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The Melting Pot prepared the bouquet of balloons and gift for the table prior to our arrival. Our server , Jackie, was excellent. She was attentive and brought our drinks and food in a timely manner. The entire party was very pleased with the restaurant and service."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Was a wonderful experience. The atmosphere was great. The good was amazing as always. We love this place."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "After all these years, The Melting Pot is still a fun place. We hadn't been in a very long time. Love that they offer child portions via a kids menu. It was a novel experience for our small family. Although, with the hot burner on the table, I would hesitate to recommend for small children with busy hands. This place is versatile; it could easily be a date place, fun for small groups, for girls' night out, for celebrating other special occasions, or for a family night out. The meats are good quality, delicious. Vegetarian options are available, too, which is a real plus (some restaurants really miss the boat on that!) The dessert fondue (we had the chocolate with peanut butter) is over-the-top good!"

  • "Matt L and Chuck the manager gave us outstanding service"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "My girlfriend and I have been coming here every year for our anniversary and we enjoy it every time. The food quality is fantastic, and unlike most higher caliber dining establishments we always leave feeling full. We asked for the romance package this time which included dinner, a bottle of champagne, roses, and a picture with frame taken on the way out. Totally worth it. My only complaint this time around (which is not the restaurant's fault at all) is that a table of white trash Jersey Shore wannabes sat at the table next to us and wouldn't stop loudly guffawing over their own bad jokes, and graphically talked about hunting and cursed like sailors the whole time. It killed the mood, plus there was a family with kids right next to us."

  • "If you're about halfway between King of Prussia and Wilmington, the Melting Pot in King of Prussia is infinitely better. The servers are much more attentive and friendly, the ambience is more romantic and adult-friendly and just generally feels more special."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Matt was a great waiter. Since we were new to the experience, gave us a really good run-down. Was very personable."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Excellent food and service!daughters 15th birthday celebration"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "The Melting Pot is always my first choice for my birthday dinner. It's a lot of fun and a true dining experience. Although it could take 2-3 hours for the meal, it's a great night out."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "We come here every year for our son's birthday, this was the best ever! People working were extremely pleasant and attentive without being stalkers, and the food was good as always."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "My son & I go to the melting pot every year for my birthday. We love the food and the service is always fantastic! We look forward to it each year. While the restaurant probably isn't good for toddlers because of the hot surface in the middle of the table, I started taking my son when he was 4 and we have never had issues. I've also been to the melting pot on dates. They have reservations later in the evening that are perfect for romance."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "The cheese fondue and the chocolate fondue were excellent, as were the salads. The only complaint I had was that the sirloin on the beef selection was coated with way too much pepper."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "For the price and quality of dining I found it very expensive. The chocolate fondue wasn't even quality chocolate. The cheese was very mediocre in terms of flavor. the ony course I enjoyed was my California salad. Everything else you just paid for the experience of cooking your own food. Nothing special, and certainly not going back again. I've been to better fondue places. Also, I reserved a table days in advance for a special occasion for 2 people and waited 40 mins for our table! Expect a long wait time. Bring your child an ipad because you'll spend most of yor time waiting for your table, your drink, next course, and your bill. Bad service and Not Great food."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "It was a great experience! I took my son and his girlfriend for a nice evening out....neither had ever been before and they LOVED IT!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Just great food, great service, and I totally recommend the romance package for a special night out!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "We go to The Melting Pot about once maybe twice a year for something special. This time we went to celebrate Valentine's Day together. As awesome, the food was delicious! I love all of the courses but that cheese fondue really gets my taste buds going. The lobster was amazing and for the first time we opted again chocolate and got the Bananas Foster dessert. OH MY GOSH! I highly recommend!! And because I am apart of the fondue club, I received a free box of chocolate covered strawberries to bring home. DELICIOUS!"
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "Just what you would expect for a fondu restaurant. Overly expensive, but for a once and a while special occasion, the food and experience can't be duplicated anywhere else and food is pretty good. Service is good, perhaps a little hovering at times, but they are respectful and want to help in any way to make you comfortable. The servers do seem to enjoy to show off and up the 'fancy' scale of everything, but again it seems to be a part of the experience to be a little 'fru fru'. The drinks were a little ordinary but it isn't the bar scene that they are shooting for."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "We had cheese and chocolate fondue, it was delicious and the server was excellent. We were seated as soon as we arrived and taken care of promptly!! Will definitely be returning!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My friends and I try to make it there twice a year, and everytime we go were always recruiting more people. Were always having fun and the food is amazing!!!!."

  • "Wednesday night we just needed to get out - 3 funerals in less then 2 weeks . so we just wanted a quite corner to our selves ! Made the reservation online here , all went well with that . Melting Pot is always a good time . just wished they would of done like we asked an stuck us in a opposite corner . Granted they gave us a corner .. with a group of 4 on one side an a party of 10 or 12 ladies on the other side - wasn't real quite .. other then that - the service by Lisa was excellent an all in all we look forward to the next time !"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "The food was delicious and the courses had equal portions. The experience was great and different. It seems more intimate than a conventional restaurant. The service was friendly and very accommodating. Highly recommended and we will be going back real soon."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "My boyfriend & I went solely for dessert and were not disappointed! The chocolate - Yin & Yang - was delicious and our drinks - whiskey and a martini - were excellent. The biggest complaint was the service - our waitress was nice, but lacking. We sat in the booth for way too long upon arrival before she even appeared to greet us, and disappeared for way too long in between taking our order and actually serving us. I would have gladly cut her some slack if it had been busy in there, but it was not. Regardless of the service, the experience was everything we wanted it to be, and we will definitely return for another chocolate dessert evening!"
    Dined on 1/23/2014
  • "Fondue is a wonderful and different kind of dinner/night out. Way overpriced if you look at what you're getting, but excellent as far as the whole package is concerned."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "This restaurant has great food, and great service! The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. This was not our first time to the restaurant, but the waitress did a great job of explaining new menu features, the process, etc. Diners have the option of choosing their own cheese fondue, main course, salad and dessert. Everything was delicious! They also had a really nice wine list. I would definitely go again, and would recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "Great food! Wonderful dining experience! Best dessert ever!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Normally we love this place. This time we felt rushed the whole time. Our waiter was great but the other workers repeatedly approached our table to take items away well before we were ready. Courses were served before the prior course was done, and no one was communicating with our waiter cause he would show up later to bring or take away the same thing. Clearly they wanted to flip our table. For the amount of money we spent and the fact that it's fondue and most of that is about the actual experience, they clearly didn't want us to experience anything but frustration. Someone showed up three times to take our cheese well before it was even gone, and then they took it off the burner while we were still eating it! It was just rude, really."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "Our server was nice and attentive, although he spoke really fast. Our drinks were delicious, try the sunset sangria. Only complaint is I wanted more of the mushroom pasta. But I eft full and happy with the experience. I can't wait to go back and try something different."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "Different experience, a nice way to slow down a meal and enjoy food and company. Good for special occasions as well as friends catching up. Food is good, just prepared a little differently. Not good for those who don't like to share."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "I love The Melting Pot. Our service is always great and food is amazing. I wish they had lunch at least once a month. I've always wanted to bring my staff over during our monthly lunches."
