We celebrated our 31st Anniversary at the Melting Pot, somewhere we’d heard mostly good reviews on but had never been. It was better than we had expected and the service was wonderful. Order the Big Night Out, which removed some decisions, and felt it was a good choice. In retrospect, next time we may try two cheese fondues instead of the chocolate, but we did enjoy the dark chocolate dolce so maybe we’ll just add another cheese next time. Highly recommend it.

Our waitress was amazing at knowing her customers and could tell when we were happy or something was wrong. My first sips of the soup she could tell I was displeased with the temperature of the Luke warm soup and offered to warm it up. She also recognized we needed more time before the courses and did not rush us. We have been to the melting pot four previous times and this was our best visit thanks to the waitress and the food.

Dave was our server and he was so great. He made the whole experience so much better. I was proposing last night to my now fiancée and Dave made it so special. This man deserves a raise! Melting pot is always amazing and the food speaks for itself. Try it. I hope you get Dave.

If you want to enjoy great food and service go here. Nice to put your phone away and have fun cooking and talking together. I will be back for sure next time we are in Edmonton. We will be recommending this fine restaurant to all our friends and family. If you want a great night out you must go here.

We were a large group of 8 everything seemed great at first, they set us off to the side, but the waitress was rude throughout. There were multiple times throughout where we were waiting and waiting for the next course or for drinks. We had to remind our waitress to take our old glasses because we ran out of room at the table, she seemed bothered by us asking this which I thought was unprofessional. Another waiter even made a joke I assume out they thought they were out of ear shot that she would mess up lighting the fire on the flaming turtle- this had us a little worried. We even had to ask her to hurry up the dessert course because we were sick of waiting. The vegan option is basically a salad with one potsticker and severely disappointing.

Very disappointed. Initially seated next to large family with noisy children. New “helper” staff was weird, rude & non-helpful when asked for simple things. We waited lengthy periods of time between courses. It was not streamline or “romantic” at all. The tables were poorly set, there were no napkins and above all else, I had to chase my server down to pay the bill after asking for it & waiting 30 minutes for desert. I honestly don’t even know why the hell I paid my bill after what happened here yesterday. Destroyed the experience entirely. I love your restaurant but this was 110% ridiculous. You’re welcome to compensate me as I eat here multiple times per season and have for YEARS.

First time at the Melting Pot! We had a new server who knew the menu well, and was energetic and happy. A pleasure to see and be around. Food was served quickly, and with instructions :) My fav was the chocolate fondue!

Our server was good, but not great. Didn’t ask if we were celebrating something or go over and beyond to converse to make the experience a bit entertaining. She didn’t have too much of a personality, very nice sweet and kind though.

We took or daughter out for her 7th birthday to the melting pot since she loves it there. This has been our third time going this year and we have noticed in the past and especially this time that the quality and ambiance just isn’t there anymore. There literally is just no wow factor… paying for the $200 + bill last night was hard to swallow this time…. The atmosphere just isn’t the same anymore

Went to the melting pot with friends in Edmonton. Coming from Quebec and knowing very much what is fondue I will give this comment. The owners of melting have my respect for trying this restaurant formula in Edmonton but they could research the concept and the recipes a little more. By doing this hey could I think have a better success and more satisfied clients. Certain servers could tone down the presentation and be calmer it would be more enjoyable for clients

My last note is to also say we are all coming back from a great tragedy for the restauration world because of covid I know it is hard for people to get back in it and I respect anybody trying.

We usually always go to Melting pot to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We are used to amazing service and very welcoming atmosphere. This is was pretty disappointing. The greeter was welcoming however the service was not close to what is expected. We had waited for 15 minutes before the server came to our table it was only after I had to gone up to the hostess and ask if they even remembered we were sitting in that section. Not a good start as my daughter was not feeling special at that point. When he finally came he was dragging and didn't even apologize for the delay. We brushed it off and didn't say anything as we didn't want to ruin the mood of the birthday girl. The placement of the glasses and plates were not professional. All the servers that cam to our table were reaching over even though we were sitting on a table and not a booth.
It was not the standard of the melting pot that we were accustomed to.

I'm not sure if its a one off or their staffing standards have been lowered. We do enjoy the melting pot and will probably go again in the hopes that service has improved.

First courses were good then the chocolate fondue was a huge let down. Ordered the banana chocolate one and the online menu did not say it got cinnamon added so we were disappointed when the banana chocolate fondue just tasted like cinnamon. took our server a long time to come ask if we liked it and by then it was burnt the heat must’ve been too high and he didn’t believe us when we said it was burnt and tasted like a candle. disappointed we weren’t given some sort of compensation for the chocolate fondue and that our server questioned us not liking it.

Definitely not worth the $280 + tip. Have been in the past and this experience was very very poor. Cheese dip was very good, Caesar salad was pathetic, big night out beef, chicken and lobster was good but salmon was repulsive. Chocolate was good as per usual. Overall was not worth the $300+ price tag.

If your looking for a extraordinary experience or a place to dine like a king, you definitely came to the right place! We decided to head back to your Melting Pot location on Calgary trail for my husband’s special surprise birthday!

I made a reservation in advance through OpenTable and asked your team to prepare the (touch of romance for $15) this package put our evening over the top and enhanced our experience so that we could finally escape from all of life’s hardships and depressing short comings.

We started off the night with the jalapeño bacon cheese melt. Then on to the Entrée, we chose the classic $34 and Alberta $27 meat platter with our pick of the mojo broth to pair. Desert we indulged in the banana chocolate foster and the expo (young man with short blonde hair) sent everything over the top as he was funny, knowledgeable and apparently only with your team for 6month! He treated us to the decadent Flambé and cinnamon toppings over the hot chocolate fondue, this was the cherry on the cake! And let me tell you! My husband nearly creamed his jeans when he got to taste the first bite! It was definitely to die for and I’m not a fan of bananas!

This has been the best experience we have had in Lil over a year! Thank you Julia M for your knowledge of all the meats,sauces and menu items! Your service was Exceptionally well and I appreciate everything your team did for us on our special night!
(Ps, As someone who also works in the food and hospitality industry your establishment is hands down the best one around town for over all satisfaction, ambiance and hospitality. Your team made us feel right at home and we enjoyed every second!)
