This is definitely not a cheap place to eat, but normally we only go here for very special occasions and this was one of them! Food is excellent service was also top notch. The only thing I would warn against is that they use MSG in some of their broths and I was unaware of that. Not a serious reaction but got stuffed up so bad it kind of took the romance out of the evening!! All in all it was a very nice meal.

Been to melting pot before and experience was quite different I understand hard being short staff because of covid but no longer make the cheese fondue in front of you and the cheese was lacking flavour and all draft beer was out. I do understand it’s hard being under staffed but when quality and experience of dinning experience is so much lower in quality then before seem hard to justify paying the same price as before.

I was disappointed in this visit. With all the room in the restaurant, they put us so close to other diners, we had young children crying throughout our dining experience. Perhaps skip a table between groups as the tables around our section were empty and if you have families with children being seated look at who is around - and keep the families together (as kids get restless when sitting through a 2hr+ meal) and those who are having intimate or business meetings kept where they could hear conversation at the table. The salad/soups and cheese fondue all came at once instead of the cheese first, followed by salad/soup. As there was little space at the table with 6 adults, all the soup/salad/ fondue and dippers made us cramped and uncomfortable. The server's timings were off all night long; the server dropped food on one of the guests at our table; when the flaming dessert was being served they did not wait for the guests who had gotten up to use the washroom to return before serving (2 of the 6 were at the table - 4 guests missed the presentation - which is part of the reason we went to the restaurant). This was an important celebration and I was very disappointed in the experience. I do not think I will return for a very long time, if ever. All the changes since this restaurant opened has really brought down the service levels and dining.

Great food. It is very easy to eat way too much.

It is a little pricey for having to cook yourself (which is part of the fun)

Our waiter was new and he was having a lot of trouble. It is quite dark in there as well, makes it hard to see. Also you feel like you are sitting in on the people beside you conversation, the noise level can increase quickly and you feel overwhelmed

I have been going to the melting pot since it has been open. Every December my friends and I have had our Christmas dinner there. I have found this year we felt rushed. They didn't take our HOT oil away in a safe manner which they were doing it on other tables. The brought our chocolate and left the crumbs on the table until we started to clean up crumbs they then offered. We always had to ask for extras it was never offered. Next year we plan to spend our money else were.

When reserving for my husband's birthday on OpenTable, I later called to see what the corkage fee was (I waited on hold for 10 mins to find out it was $25). That's a fair price. The lady on the phone asked if I wanted flowers, petals, and Prosecco added on and I said no thank you. To my surprise. when we got there, we were seated at a table which had all these things at the table, thinking it was a nice thing from the restaurant to do (we get free wine, entrees, desserts, etc for bdays and anniversaries all the time, so it DOES happen that the restaurant will treat you extra nice on a special day, I did not see it as peculiar that these things may be at our table). We ordered our Big Night Out Experience (very yummy) but halfway into the cheese fondu the poor server (who was GREAT and very sweet) had to come over and tell us we were accidently put at a table meant for someone else's bday and we had to pay for it. Not wanting to alarm, upset, or get my husband involved, I excused myself from the table to speak to the manager. I was told it was going to be an additional $85 for the "accidental birthday" extras. No way was I going to pay that. I made a deal with him that we will certainly pay for the prosecco we were consuming but not the flowers or (cheap) glasses that came with the prosecco and that our corkage fee would be waived. He was very nice and agreed and the bill came exactly as we agreed however, it left a every bad taste in my mouth that we were sat at the wrong table, expected to pay an additional $85 for things we did not order, that they made the poor server inform us of their mistake, and that I was the one who came up with the negotiation, not them. Again, it was handled ok in the end and the food and service from our server was good (I told the manager to give her the "accidental" flowers we got). but it should not have happened and the correction should have been initiated on their end. I would eat there again though, just not sure when.

Food was very good. Service was very okay, brought out our soup and salad before we were done the cheese fondue, forgot the coffees we ordered and overcharged us on the bill. We had 6 people and the table they sat at us should have had no more than 4 people. It was a booth and we were constantly having to reach over each other to get to the two different pots. The table was way too crowded with everything on there. It was very awkward for the people at the end to get out, everyone had to get up to let them out. We all had winter jackets and were told there was no place to put them, so they also were on the bench, very uncomfortable. Would not recommend going with more than 4 people. We all were disappointed, except for the fact that the food was very good.

We love the Melting Pot. We go there for birthdays and most celebrations. Therefore, I have to say that although we love to go there A LOT, I feel like there are a few issues that have been repeating itself the last few visits: First, the dips are bordering on disgusting when they arrive-clumpy and appearing that they have been left out all day. We had drawn butter delivered to our table that was literally a clumpy disgusting mess. Terrible. Food was very, very good-it’s too bad the accompaniments were just gross, to be honest. Second, we ordered additional fruit for our chocolate, and got a dip dish with 4 bananas. So we ordered more, and waited, then got 4 strawberries, and ordered more and waited…for the amount of money we’re spending it is very annoying to wait and wait and wait to enjoy dessert. Otherwise, the service was pretty good inside. They made us wait in our car for 20 mins because they forgot about us, but once in, our server was very good and attentive. Overall, we enjoyed but I don’t think we’ll be there as much until we see these little things improve….

Date night out - we’ve enjoyed the melting pot many times before. We found our dinner yesterday was delicious but the portions were much smaller and the dippers offered were less so you really need to be willing to ask for more dippers. Besides that it was a good night out. The restaurant was very busy but we had an amazing time and our service was incredible. Thank you Leandro for a fun night and great service

Unfortunately, the service is deteriorating. This is the second time in a row that we had poor service. The wait staff do not seem to be trained well enough. It took our waitress several attempts to record our order and then it was still wrong. Then we were charged more than required. The manager was kind enough to refund the difference but the service certainly is not what is expected.

The fondue courses are so delicious you just can not stop eating.
Leaving full is a guarantee when dining at the Melting Pot. The date night special is a great value and allows you to experience all four courses. As a sweets and cheese lover I always assumed the chocolate or cheese would be my favorite course however time and time again the main pot of broth and well marinated meats is a mouthful of flavor on its own; the numerous dishes of sauces to accompany the meats is the cheery on top. Great atmosphere with a long dining service allows for time to catch up with dearly missed friends over a few of their well crafted cocktails!
