The service was terrible and the noise level was ridiculous. I left with a headache. Food was great, but then... I cooked it myself. 😂

They should stick to regular menu and stop holiday specials. We are decades long customers and know what we like. Sell the customer what he wants, not want you think he wants or needs.

My overall experience was ok. We had a new waitress and she really couldn’t answer any of the questions we asked. The food was overpriced and the portions aren’t enough.

Even when we did make a reservation and we were on time and several tables empty they make us wait a few minutes and after that they seat us at a table without nothing , meaning no silverware or anything . We even received the food without silverware.
the other negative was the drinks , almost no alcohol just a soda at $11 and $13 each
The rest was great , good food and flavors .

One our favorite places. We like the little "couples cubbies" - romantic and better isolated in COVID times - without compromise in service. The $95 couple package suited us perfectly, and our server was very accommodating and personable.
Online reservation system with email reminder a bonus. All in all, a lovely evening.

We visit this location every year when we come to the beach. Sadly this visit wasn’t up to par. I believe there must be new management. Upon arrival we had to wait for the hostess no one was at the hostess stand. We were seated and ordered drinks. It was 30 min before I got my wine. I had to ask 3 times as to where is was. It was another 15 min before we were able to start our 1st coarse. The vibe was just off. I also noticed the staff from the hostess to the manger looked disheveled wearing jeans and tee shirts which I thought was odd. Unfortunately we will not be back to this location.

Great place for a romantic dinner. Food was excellent and you won't walk away hungry. Awesome wine selection and the bar is well stocked. Be prepared to be there for at least two hours. The meal comes out in 4 courses. Our service was lacking abit because they were training a new server. All in all a great experience!

Unimpressed. Service was not good. Water glasses were empty. Small food portions for $45/person. Cheese fondue - not enough food to dip for party of four. Not enough chocolate dip for desserts. Will not be back.

I’ve never been to a melting pot before. I left extremely disappointed. Really low quality proteins and super salty seasoning/sauces. To top it off, paid $185 including tip for dinner of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids under 5) with 2 glasses of wine. I’ve eaten 10x better for 1/3 price.
Only redeeming value was the service was decent, and the kids had fun.

Service was not as good as we got in another locations. To many mistakes from the server (wrong wine, not cold enough, side vegetables for the fondue were too cold, bread was gummy.)
Additionally they bring us the check two minutes after they served the fondue. (There just a few tables with people and no waiting line at all).

Our waitress was great but they obviously had given her too many tables. It took a long time-3 hour dinner.

Valentines Day. Everything great! Family with small children in our area playing iPad with music. Not the best but, hey. I'm glad the family was celebrating together. Madison, our server, was fantastic. My wife and I have gone on Valentines Day several years in a row. We love it!

Food was great, service was very slow. We were already finished with the appetizers when we finally received waters, and that was because I asked the hostess who happened to be walking by. Drinks didn’t come for another 15 mins. The server was very nice but we only saw her 3 times. Staff shortage possibility? But for a Saturday night, ridiculously slow.

The melting pot made a great night into something amazing. The food was delicious and the waitress did a great job showing off the different fondues. It is a bit expensive, but it was worth every pennie.

Not much available for NYE in Destin... so took a chance with Melting pot.. haven't eaten at one in years... $50 prix fixe menu -- cheddar bacon cheese fondue -- good but reminded me more of a bacon queso .. a traditional swiss fondue would have been nice..., caprese salad .. was bland... -- teriyaki sirloin, was told another type of sirloin, but thought it was supposed to be tenderloin... duck. and shrimp... we did coque du vin broth... plenty of meat... duck was good.. shrimp wasn't the best... (especially for being by the sea)... we were supposed to get a glass of champagne/sparkling wine for NYE... but never got it... we ordered a bottle of wine.. that seemed to get lost somewhere... finally came out.. but wasn't on the final bill... so I let the waiter know.. they added it.. auto 20% gratuity which is fine.. but just felt the over all experience was lacking... as i've been to other melting pots in the past and they normally give a good explanation of each course and how to eat and cook it.. Dessert was a white chocolate with chamboard... and plenty of dipping items.. but again not explained what each were.. (we figured them out ourselves)... we eat out a lot.. and we had just spent two nights in NOLA with exceptional service and food... with about equal cost... if someone is going to grat a table.. we would expect extraordinary service... but I give it a pass due to this being a tourist trap town.. and most places in Destin are, unfortunately... below average service and quality... seems like people just don't care and it is sad.. b/c it is a beautiful area...

The quality of the food very poor
Also if you have 4 at a table you only get one pot so a problem if anyone has food allergies
Way overpriced for what you get

This was my first time coming to the melting pot and I have to say it will be the last. I ordered some cocktails and they were NOT done correctly and tasted horrible . I had to send it back. Then I ordered a salad as an appetizer. Took forever coming out and by the time it did, the salad was wet soggy . The waitress blamed the kitchen staff bc “ it was his first day” and I didn’t think that was very professional. Waitress was rude and tried to bully me into getting the chocolate fondue but I was so displeased with my whole experience all I wanted was the check. Horrible way to celebrate a birthday .
