The Melting Pot - Columbia SC
Everything was perfect! Our server was Jason and he was absolutely wonderful! One of our best experiences ever and we look forward to coming back.
I said I would recommend only because it is they only restaurant like it. Besides that not good experience
We were here to celebrate hubbie bday , the food itself was good but some was taste plain but the service from our server make everything so much better !!
My waitress name was Alex! She was so much fun and made sure we had a good experience.
It was great
GREAT! Food, quality and quantity were all great!
Bartender was excellent. Service was spot-on.
Wonderful service . The server was knowledgeable about the menu , also held a conversation with us .
Our server, Jason, was fantastic!
First date night out since the whole Covid thing started. Staff wore masks and gloves as expected, and tables that were occupied were spaced out. Our waitress was new so she wasn't as knowledgable about the menu but she still did a great job. As usual, our experience with the 4-course meal was fantastic. We took advantage of their date night for two option and enjoyed it all. The atmosphere is intimate, perfect for two parents eager for a date night away from their kids. That's why we keep coming back - the experience. I'm glad to see they're still here!
First time visiting. Took my wife there for our anniversary and was excellent
We just love the Melting Pot. Always friendly and always good food.
Staff was amazingly helpful and friendly. Great experience!
Good time! I enjoyed going out with my boyfriend. The server w
Was very anxious to get back to eating at a restaurant so was thrilled to hear the Melting Pot had re-opened. They are handling the virus precautions very well. Want to give kudos to Erin, our server. She was attentive and generous. A wonderful dining experience all-together!
Definitely recommend, from hospitality to the food. Everything was very delicious.
Food quality was good, but you don’t get much for the price. 2 people with a couple of drinks was over $150.
The food was great and our server Jason was excellent. The manager on-duty, Wilson was very welcoming and checked on us during our dinner. 10 out of 10
Johnny C. Was the best. Could not have asked for a better server.
My husband and I were there a few hours ago on our date night and it was awesome. The place was very clean and it was very quiet. The staff's were very friendly and respectful. Our server Tyler was awesome. Since it was our first time dining at the Melting Pot, he took the time out to show us what to do as far as cooking our meal.
He was very patient with us and he was also very knowledgeable about his job. We also asked one of the staff to take a few pictures for us and she was so happy to oblige us. She has no idea what those few pictures meant to us and that she also helps to make our date night awesome.
I like the fact that they have those partitions in between each seating area. It gives you more privacy. The way how they have it set up, it's more like a form of romantic settings. Overall, I love the settings, the staffs, atmosphere, location, and the food was awesome. I'm planning to reserve again at a later date. This time it will be with my entire family.
Good afternoon! Thank you so much for dining with us for the first time for date night! We are so happy that you enjoyed your experience. Thank you for providing positive feedback about our team member Tyler, the ambiance, and the exceptional food. Tyler, as well as everyone at The Melting Pot in Columbia, SC are looking forward to serving you & your family very soon! :) Sincerely, Ally General Manager
Our waiter Dalton was the best!! He helped to make our visit great.. everything has a great flavor and it was so much fun!!
Our server was amazing and the food was delicious and our floral arrangements were beautiful!
Great food and experience. Staff very friendly and helpful. Our waiter gave great recommendations of things to try and they were great.
Great food and our server, Matthew D was great! He has a great personality!
So first let me start off by saying our waiter was FABULOUS. He is what made our experience at this melting pot lovely.
Now for the negative, we had a 6 people party and we were cramped in. For the price we are paying we should not be cramped in. The food was fantastic as always we were just to close to other people and the seating arrangements sucked. Our waiter though I wish I would have gotten his name, was the absolute sweetest, lovable, kindest waiter i have ever had. #lovehim
The Melting Pot was absolutely perfect! We enjoyed the Valentine's Menu for sure. The cost was $65 per person which included chicken Florentine soup, choice of salad, cheese fondue, entrée of filet mignon, lobster, shrimp, pork tenderloin and chicken, followed by a yummy chocolate fondue. Oh and they also gave us a free champagne toast. The ambiance, service and food were all impeccable! We will be back again for sure!
Our first time using the cast iron grill option and it was great! The wait staff was wonderful. The only critique is we wanted more vegetables but never saw our waitress to ask. She admitted when she came back that she had forgotten to stop by during the entree to see if we needed anything more.
We did not care for the L-shaped table for two and would have preferred a normal table but we did not think much about it after the experience started.
I paid $187 and was still hungry wen i left.. never again
First and last time
The staff was very busy because of it being Valentines however the service left a little to be desired and was not up to the standard expected.
The waiter was ok. But, I hate he failed to answer my question correctly and we ended up spending an additional $30 plus. I asked him was the menu per person or is the meal shared. He said per person. He did not say it was shared. My husband asked for clarification for me because I wanted my own lobster after we only received one. I don’t eat pork or beef. The waiter acknowledged his error on this and gave us a lobster on the house. Great, but it wasn’t until we got the check that we realized it was only one cheese and one dessert. We order both cheeses and both desserts because remember I asked the question at the beginning was it shared. So, we’re ordering based on it not being shared. Had we known, we would have just ordered as individuals and not shared! This was not our first time, we come often for special occasions but this was our first time for Valentine’s Day. We still love the place but PLEASE INSTRUCT YOUR STAFF TO BE CLEAR OR ASK QUESTIONS TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE UNDERSTANDING US. The menu was not clear for someone coming for the first time on that particular day, and I did ask the question because it was unclear.
Went here for Valentine's Day dinner. They had a preplanned menu with a view choices. Server and staff are very polite and courteous. We only waited about 5 minutes to be seated near our reservation time at 5:30pm. Food is very tasty. Overall, a nice date night. The cost of the entire meal, was too costly, however. We did not order alcoholic beverages and with a tip, the total was not reasonable. Something to think about when eating at The Melting Pot on holiday's. Make your reservations, when they have special pricing, I think is the only way to eat at this high priced restaurant.
Great addition with the renovated area. WAY too many kids to have a nice and quiet Valentine’s dinner.
this was for the valentine's day special menu. 4 stars because of the limited menu - wish you would have have 2 choices for entree as not fans of lobster. cheese choices were ok as well as the desserts - not your usual great flavors. Also felt a bit rushed with the service and delivery of food. not done with one course before next course arrived
Usual menu - give 5 stars
V day menu - sorry not my fav.
From the moment we arrived all of the staff was very kind ans attentive. The food was delicious and arrived in a timely manner. We had a wonderful evening celebrating my birthday! Definitely returning! If you are on their email you get gorgeous chocolate covered strawberries to take home. Such a nice touch that you don’t find anymore!!
We celebrated our anniversary here and it was so nice. The service was great and her food was amazing
Great food, great service, and great atmosphere. Will be back soon.
