We’ve been to multiple Melting Pots across the country and this was just the level we expected for a great date night. We’ll be back next month!

We always enjoy coming to this particular Melting Pot. But do give yourself enough time to enjoy every course. If you haven't tried "The Big Night Out" with some wine, you simply hff have not experienced all this treasure of gourmet dining has to offer !!

Went for my wife's birthday . Was good but not as good as in past visits. Covid I am sure makes it hard on the restaurant to operate at it's best.

We come here frequently. We’ve been to this location 20 times or so. It’s my daughter’s birthday and she brought friends. I completely and totally understand the process and how it works. The waitress rushed us through the cheese experience and I asked for a few more mins. I ask for a few more mins because it’s my daughters birthday and she doesn’t eat meat. The waitress knew this through the ordering process. The meat course was next for her friends and parents. Not for her. The waitress sent someone to assist with placing the oil. All I did was ask for a few more minutes before switching. The waitress came and said “I heard you refused for the oil to be placed”. In a snarky tone. No, I simply asked for a few more mins. Politely. I wasn’t asking for anything significant. The waitress proceeded to lecture on the process that I already know all to well. I bit my tongue and kindly accepted her reprimand. It was my daughters birthday and not worth confrontation. At the end of the day, if I’m spending 300-400 on 4 kids to enjoy fondue I shouldn’t get rushed or lectured. I never said anything and I tipped well but regret not telling her that her actions didn’t settle well. I’ve been enjoying the melting pot experience since I was a teenager in the 90’s. Obviously not at this location as it’s newer than the Charlotte location. This is the first time I left unsettled about dropping that kind of money and it was due to the service. I’ll be honest, I thought maybe I took it wrong but all the kids spoke up after she walked off and said she was rude. I even tried joking back and forth with the waitress to change their minds but the waitress was a bit snarky through the experience. These are teenagers, they would have enjoyed fondue at home and not understood quality difference. They were just looking for a good time.

With the limited seating due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was as if we got there right when it opened, and very few others ever came after us, so it was quite an intimate dining experience. As usual, the service and food were excellent, and we added the “Balloons and Berries” for a birthday celebration. At first, I wasn’t too impressed with the amount of balloons and berries we got for the additional twenty bucks, but they also took a group photo of us, printed it, put it in a simple paper-frame to protect it, and even wrote the date and place the photo was taken on the back of it. With how we all now take so many photos that never leave the digital world, having a photo to walk out with to remember the moment by was well worth the add-on charge. I will definitely do an add-on again in the future to make someone feel extra special!
