Edgar our server was exceptional. Food was great, nice atmosphere, very private booths and nice pace.
Quality of the food was excellent as always. Had probably the best table in the restaurant as far as privacy.
Wonderful meal to help celebrate my wife's birthday.
Be careful here!! They sell you promotions and tell you that you can use them even though it said only 1 per visit....you bring that up and they tell you not to worry about it, they will accept it anyhow. Well, they don't!! there are time limits on them and they must expect customers to come every month. They aren't a "every month" kind of place. Last night they didn't accept the $25 off and closed my ticket using my gift card WITHOUT giving me a chance to even tip the waitress!! They are lucky we just happen to have some cash on us to tip the girl. How do you run a business like that? We have been going quarterly for TWO years!! We bought all the promotions because they were losing business due to covid and this is how they repay us. The Melting Pot has now lost us as customers.....We will NEVER return!! You need to learn how to treat your customers!!

14th anniversary!! Everyone was sooo nice. We had a sweet card celebrating our anniversary at our table when we arrived and a sweet little candle on our dessert.
21st birthday celebration
Amazing customer service and the food was delicious!!
Dinner was delicious from beginning to end and our server was fantastic!
We enjoyed a fabulous birthday celebration! The food was great, the service excellent and the experience memorable!
Restaurant Week menu was wonderful. It was a great date night for us and Cassidy our server was personable and her attentiveness was spot on.
My son and I dined here for the first time. My server Edger was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The food and presentation was great. I will definitely be back.
This was by far the best experience I’ve had in a restaurant!
Great date night! The food and service was excellent and the manager made sure to check on us. Many others could learn from the Columbia Melting Pot.
We were celebrating after our daughter’s Class Ring ceremony at USC and made reservations on 10/17/21 for later that afternoon. The waiter was very patient, attentive, and accommodating. The food was great and everyone left full and happy.
Delicious & entertaining experience. Very enjoyable ♥️. They even had gluten free bread. 😀
Tristan was the best. Very attentive and pays attention to the needs of the customers. Without hesitation he moves like a pro. I will definitely be coming back to enjoy his service.
Great Nick our server was great.
Absolutely fabulous! Our server Tristan was friendly, knowledgeable and kept on top of anything we needed
This place hits all the high points. Food was great, service was outstanding in a relaxed fun atmosphere! We are planning our next visit.
It was nice, I asked for secluded table and did receive one. But there so many tables so close around that it was a little noisy. But overall it was a good evening.
Dinner was great as always. Only thing we dislike is when they start getting busy - which happens. Then It will take a little longer to get some extra refills on food and drinks. We will definitely be back again though!
Our experience tonight started off really good. Our server was very personable and helpful with suggestions. The table was perfect just what I asked for is secluded booth and the back as we were here to celebrate a special occasion. The first course came quickly and we were having a really wonderful time. Not sure what happened mid meal but everything sort of slowed down tremendously. I think we spent at least 45 minutes waiting for one thing or another during the latter part of the meal. The food was excellent as always! I have never had a bad meal here yet. However by the time we finally got our check and our boxes we were both extremely tired and ready to leave. Overall it was still a good experience however the moves between courses and then the wait for the check were very slow too slow. I definitely don't want to discourage you from visiting because this is an awesome place to spend a special occasion or a date night. We will definitely be back.
Christina was our server and she was great and made our experience even more enjoyable. The food and experience was awesome!
Fantastic food and friendly service!
The decoration in our table was really nice, food was really good.
Great anniversary dinner! We always love to celebrate our family’s special occasions at The Melting Pot.
Celebrated my birthday. Food was great.
Service was outstanding, food was fantastic, ambience was perfect. If you are looking for a place to slow down, relax, and enjoy great conversation this is the place for you.
Birthday for my wife.
Great experience for my daughter (daddy-daughter date). Kayla was an exceptional server - conversationally appropriate & professional.
This was my first time in a long time!!! The experience was great and the server was awesome. Stephanie really did help in providing great suggestions and made the experience even better. She’s definitely a jewel. I will definitely return!
Kayla is the best waitress I’ve had in a long time. She has the most wonderful smile. She wasn’t supposed to be our server but saw us waiting a little while and stepped in to take care of us. She is truly a hard worker and that’s hard to find these days in restaurants.
Our server Elizabeth was excellent. Perfect Date Night!
Server Lucas was great. Everything was good.
The Big Night Out is an excellent offering and everything was delicious! Very happy with our experience.
Came here for my partner’s birthday and our anniversary— Olivia was AMAZING! great experience, worth the price!
No wait. Great server who was knowledgable w new menu. Great food.
Our last few times here have been very disappointing. Service was incredibly slow and inattentive and food items were missing parts of the “normal” experience. We have been going since 2010 and it has been really poorly the last 6-8 months. Generally we love the food and the experience, I hope they take steps soon to remedy whatever the issues are.
