By far one of the best Date Night Spots in Edmonton. Food, drinks, ambiance are all amazing and perfect for an intimate night out. The food is always unbelievable, if you're not full by the time the chocolate gets there you're not doing it right!

We were out for my birthday, the food was good, service was alright and there was a table beside us with screaming kids they were running around they were not wearing there masks as they should. For the price I payed it should have been more relaxing and not have to listen to screaming and yelling kids but the truth was I could not wait to get out of there. Not a good experience at all.

First time at the Melting Pot, so I was not sure what to expect. I found the inside of the restaurant to be very plain with no ambiance whatsoever.
Our main server was not very attentive, she did not refill our drinks and was quite scarce for most of our meal. The rest of the guys who brought the food were fantastic.
Food was great!

Everything at this restaurant was wonderful. Great food and service. Wonderful experience! We brought our kids for the first time ever and they really enjoyed the experience as well as the food. They even have a kids menu now! Still expensive, but worth every penny.

My husband and I first found the Melting Pot in Seattle. We enjoyed it so much we went two evenings for dinner there on a vacation. Everything, mostly the fondues were excellent. We will be back. We go annually for our birthdays. If you are not sure, try it, you will love it. Also, our servers added to the awesome evening.

The service was wonderful. The layout of the table made it hard for us to enjoy the experience of cooking the food ourselves and the lighting was SO DARK we had to use the flashlights from our phones.

Local pandemic regulations seemed well observed by servers, staff and patrons except that the bartender did not have his mask covering mouth and nose. This was unfortunate as he was at the front of restaurant upon whom we looked while waiting a few moments before being taken to our table. After he noticed us, he then took the mask and pulled it up properly, but no cleaning of hands before returning to his work activities of drink preparations. This was not a good start to the evening for anxious patrons to observe such a lapse in regulations in drink preparations. This made us wonder about mask usage in the kitchen which of course we could not observe. Otherwise food was fine and plentiful.

The Melting Pot is always a delicious treat, and their service is great. We were never kept waiting for add-ons to the courses. My only complaint is that the tiny two seaters are very small and uncomfortable for people not “romance-dining”. We should be given the option to at least opt out of these tables when we reserve. Otherwise, food was delicious and we’ll definitely be back

The Melting Pot is a unique experience and as far as I know the only restaurant in Edmonton serving fondue. If you're hungry for cheese or want a new dining experience, this is the place.

Due to COVID the Melting Pot didn't offer table side presentation (cheese fondue mixed in front of you, pre-COVID), was stringy, didn't have much flavor, was NOT as good as before COVID. Although portions were provided (bread; veggies; fruit - with Chocolate Fondue), had to keep asking for more, service was a bit slow to pick up on re-fills.

Came for Halloween tradition with our children. No decorations or anything so sad. Our server was clearly new and did not know much about the menu or adding kids to other packages. Forgot veggies with our entree, bread was super stale for our cheese (it was like a crouton), and the quality of fruit was definitely below expectation. We have been here multiple time and this was definitely our worst experience yet.

I brought a friend who’s never been to The Melting Pot before because I personally love it. She enjoyed herself and thought it was so cool! Photos may be hard to see because it is a dimmer lit place.

The choice of vegetables wasn’t good.
Potatoes, tomatoes and asparagus just don’t cook well in a fondue. There are so many other good options available.
Hand sanitizer and paper towels by the bathrooms Would make it a lot more covid safe.

The food was wonderful, it always is. Our service this time was less than satisfactory; we had finished our entire entree before our server stopped by to see if we needed anything else (more veggies). We couldn’t even ‘flag’ him down, because we didn’t know who was a server or a patron (because of the masks). We tried once, but the gentleman we asked, was in fact a customer. I was embarrassed and apologetic.

My wife and I have been going to the Melting Pot for approximately the last five years. The service was good, food was great as it always is! My only issue is how quickly we’ve been rushed through for the last year or so. The experience is not as relaxing as it once was. Other than that one small issue, we love this restaurant and will continue to visit a few times per year! Very enjoyable.

Fondue is always so much fun. The Melting Pot is a great experience. Nice, special occasion place. Word of advice, don’t fill up on bread, save room for chocolate fondue at the end

We went for our anniversary dinner. I was very disappointed with the service. We received and finished our soup before the drinks and cheese entree. The broth for our entree came out and abut 20 minutes later our food came out. It was just very slow from the last time that we were there which was about three weeks prior.
