Our waiter was phenomenal. I can't remember his name. He was funny and very helpful for our first visit. All of the food was delicious. It was fun cooking our main course at the table. It was our 9 year old son's birthday and the waiter brought out a chocolate decorated plate that had a chocolate dipped strawberry and candle. Overall it was a great experience. Very clean as well.

I love the melting pot have been there a few times. And My servers are always great! This time however the salmon bad I got was bad. I don’t know much about fish but when it tasted the first bite of the 4 Pieces I knew something was off. I didn’t eat any of the other pieces as I noticed that the bottoms were also grey. I wished the kitchen staff were a little more observant before plating the spoiled fish.

The Melting Pot was a great spot for our anniversary dinner date. What made the night was not only the food and atmosphere but the service as well. Our waitress Ellysa (a-lee-sa), was one of the best servers we've ever had. She spoke well through her mask for us to clearly hear her, she gave great suggestions, was present enough to refill water and provide help as needed while not being overwhelming and constantly at the table, she connected well, gave excellent descriptions of the foods that we were trying to choose between, and overall made the night more enjoyable and a great experience.

We sat down to a card acknowledging our special occasion , our table was a very private nook in the wall with adjustable lighting. Our server Archie was incredible, very attentive without interrupting conversations. The food was outstanding. We ordered the loaded baked potato cheese, a Caesar salad, meat skewers and the flaming turtle which was so so good. We then finished the evening with a chocolate covered strawberry to celebrate our event. Very happy !

The food was very small portions for the money. The waitress keep recommending things to my daughter to try without telling or saying that there is an additional charge. The bill ended up being $500 for 5 adults and 1 child! Totally not worth that kind of money. I truly think she kept recommending items to try because the bill would be larger and the gratuity was automatically add in.

we had the worst experience for mother’s day brunch .
we were seated in a small corner booth away from the larger tables .
however , the table next to us was a woman with 2 small children .
while mom was busy throwing her glasses of wine back , her kids were kicking our booth , screaming , yelling , crying the ENTIRE 2 hours we were there .
i ended up having to get up and nicely ask her to control her kids from kicking the booth as it was so annoying and she was making no effort as a parent to control her kids .
our meal was great , our server was amazing . our server who was also taking care of wine lady with the bad kids as well as other tables next to this table was fantastic . i know this was not easy for her on a busy day , so i appreciate that .
management also came and spoke with us and apologized .
i do believe that someone at the restaurant should have done more to control this table , IE cutting orr the alcohol so she could focus on her kids .
this incident however ruined my entire meal , it was absolutely an exhausting 2 hours and forcing myself to eat .
