This is a fun experience. We did not have a good waitress. She talked really fast and rushed our service. It is a four course experience, but it felt more like a three course experience. The cheese fondue and salads came at the same time.... we were not even finished and the next course was arriving... it was a Birthday dinner and we had lots of time. The restaurant was empty so no one was waiting in line to get in.
The fast pace ruined the experience. The food was excellent but having a good server is key to the overall experience.

Service was great. Food was good but overpriced in my opinion. My chicken was a rubbery texture. Steak was very good. Cheese fondue delicious and chocolate fondue wonderful. I just think the price is outrageous. You pay more for the experience than the actual amount of food and/or quality.

Brought my family here, we will remember it forever, but not for the reasons you'd think, for the outrageous price! The concept is fun, though the menu is hard to follow and there are times when everyone has to agree on one thing, such as the dipping sauces and cooking method. That's another thing, for $220 for 4 people I didn't feel that we should've had to cook our own food. I thought everything would come out cooked and we would simply dip. (Not the case with the entree). Portions are small for the price. Between the 4 of us we had 12 shrimp, and probably less than a 6 oz steak. Granted there was also chicken, but that's cheap. The deserts were the same way, there's a lot of pretzels yet only 1 Oreo crusted marshmallow per person. I would go for just desert on a special occasion. But I won't likely go back.

Absolutely loved it! Have lived in the area for almost 15 years and have always wanted to go but never had the chance. Finally did, and will definitely be back and soon. Went with my mother for a celebration dinner and we both were amazed at what a good time we had and how much we enjoyed it. Can’t wait till next time.

It seems like the Melting Pot has taken a step down. Menus used to be colorful (book style) with pictures and now just printed on one thin page, front and back in black and white. Menu looked like it was printed on a home printer. We had a party of 4 people which used to consist of 2 cook tops, this time we only allowed one cook top and when we asked if we could have a table with 2 cook tops, we were told no. During dessert, strawberries were cut up, used to be served whole. Cheesecake is no longer included. On another note, waitress was very professional and courteous.

Corporate changed the menu to be easier for our new guests to understand, but I do remember the big books we used to have! Unfortunately the Destin location was not built with 2 burners at four tops, but when making your reservation if you request a 2 burner we will gladly hold that table for you. This particular night all of the two burner tables had been reserved for large parties. Changes have happened over the years and as a company the Melting Pot will always keep evolving! Auburn

We had a wonderful time! The food was excellent and the experience was amazing. Our waitress was great until our main courses came. Once she brought our main courses she disappeared for over 20 minutes. We eventually flagged down another waiter who sent over the hostess. She didn’t apologize for the tardiness of our waitress, she only took away our dirty dishes. We had to ask her for more water as our water cups had been empty for nearly 15 minutes. Another waitress came to the table and refilled our waters. I asked if our waitress was okay and mentioned that we hadn’t seen her in over 20 minutes. She blew it off by saying that they do teamwork and they help each other out. My husband and I have a great sense of humor so the whole ordeal was humorous to us but other guests may not be so forgiving. When our waitress finally came back to the table there was no apology, she acted as if nothing had happened.

We will definitely come back but we’ll hope for better service next time!

We’ve been here a couple times for Anniversaries and birthdays. We always do the 4 courses but even a happy hour with just cheese or just dessert would be fun. Our server, Jessica, was prompt, attentive, and friendly. We usually sit at lovers lane which is the best for a date. The only thing we noticed this time around was the very odd picture of laughing dogs in our romantic booth lol.

Valentines date. Best isolated table spot,picture of some dogs and we’re animal lovers so that was a plus,great slow jams until this drake song came on cause that’s not anywhere near classic r&b which was the feeling I was getting initially. Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. Patient with us while we figured it out,but at the same time if she wasn’t around as much it would of had more of a 1 on 1 feel,which is the reason I love the melting pot. Overall outstanding. I think our waitresses name was Jess.

The service was much less desirable vice our last visit. I think she was new. Our drinks were incredibly slow / forgotten. The wrong cooking style was brought to us. The choices can be a little confusing if you don't go very often. Last time the waiter explained it to us very well but this time the service was not as good.
I still recommend The Melting Pot. I hope they bring new employees up to speed soon.

My husband and I made an online reservation. We were very surprised to be seated in a quiet romantic room. The food was absolutely fantastic and so were the drinks. The only downfall was the waitress. She was nice, but talked through everything way too fast and was even yawning during explanation of the menu. Overaltwe had a really good time.

Server was excellent. We decided to try the grilling option but wouldn’t do it again. Our favourite is still the canola oil. The interior seems a bit tired but it was our server, Sean, that did an outstanding job and created our rating of “Outstanding”!

I was there for my anniversary and it just wasn’t a good experience for our first time! Def wasn’t worth the 108$ that we spent. Could of just went the the steak house and enjoyed my money there! :(
