    My husband and I took my grandmother here for her 83rd birthday and she loved it. She was in awe of the special dinning experience. I would highly recommend going around lunch time because it wasn’t busy at all!

    Doesn't look like much from the outside since it's basically at the end of a small strip mall, but it's lovely once you're inside. Lots of food choices and cooking styles. Go hungry because it's about 2 hours for the full 4 course meal(optional). Save room for cheese and dessert fondues which cannot be missed.

    My three girlfriends and I lingered over dinner, unrushed, for 2 1/2 hours. We shared some wine, laughs and great fondue. We grilled our entree and I think I prefer that to frying in oil. The cheese fondue was great, had the bourbon one but my favorite was the turtle chocolate fondue. I just wanted to eat it by the spoonful! We each had the 1 29 dollar 3 course BFFF (meal special on Wednesday evenings) and shared 3 41 dollar 4 course meals. Honestly too much food. 2 of each would have been enough for the four of us to share. Lots of steak, chicken and shrimp on the 2 classic meat entree plates and mushrooms, asparagus and squash as well.

    Delicious food. Server was friendly and helpful. Booth and area around it was clean, however more attention needs to be given to cleaning the staff areas. We had to walk down a hallway by the kitchen to get to the restroom and the carpet was filthy and slippery.

    Overall, we enjoyed our experience at the Melting Pot. However, unlike our first visit, which was 5 star, this visit left something to be desired in terms of service. We had trouble getting drink refills or dipper refills. We had 4 meat entrees and only received two small trays of vegetables for our entire table, and our server was so seldom around that we weren't able to ask for more. The Melting Pot can be magical with the right server, but the server really makes or breaks the experience. Our server was nice but not extremely attentive.

    Our server had great knowledge of the menu and the drinks. Suggested a wine for my husband for both our dinner and our dessert course. The food was amazing and was very fresh. The suggestions our server, Eric gave us for our specific protein choices were spot on and really gave the extra edge to the food.

    This was our first time ever visiting the melting pot so we didn’t really know what to expect. The service was amazing. We did not really care for having to cook our food at the table. There was definitely plenty of food we did not leave hungry or wanting anymore. The price was really expensive considering we had to cook our own food. Probably would only be a one time a year visit.

    Meh. It’s not the experience it used to be but then nothing is. The hostess was friendly but not empathetic to giving us a minute to get into our seats and no one cleaned the food off the wall from the previous diners. The server was fantastic. The bartender Eric, overworked but I’m still impressed. They need to rethink reservations, though. Whomever is handling those is giving zero thought to time allowance of the party to eat and enjoy without being rushed. The hostess who sat us kept walking by seeing where we were in our meal, which was obvious and felt a bit aggressive after a while. Food was amazing, but it always is -although it is the same standard fare (potatoes carrots broccoli and cauliflower and apples). The bread options were the same as they’ve always been; so consistency is key. That dessert plate is actually very nice large amount, almost too much. Our server was very nice in making sure I avoided my allergen so I was incredibly appreciative to that. I know that they have a policy against takeout drinks so the only thing they could actually provide was a kids cup for my non-alcoholic but delish tea.

    If you make reservations at The Melting Pot, be sure to specify 1 or 2 burners if more than one couple. They didn't ask us so 4 of us had to agree on everything.

    Service was extremely slow. They have a sign that says you may only stay for 2 hours to eat but the service was so slow that we were there for 3 hours and had to take our final course to go. We spent $150 for the meal and were completely dissatisfied.

    We had a great time. Service was attentive without being stopping by too many times, the staff worked together to clear our table and deliver food. The only thing that was odd was that the "manager" that usually comes by your table to thank you for dining and being sure that everything was nice skipped our table. Not sure what that was about but I def noticed that I heard them talking to customers at other booths. Anyway, the server was great, food was good, noise wasn't bad, no issues.

    Over priced for vegan meal. And making someone pay extra when there are a odd number of guest is crazy. I could see if there was one person alone but not when they are with others. Will most likely never come back because of that. It is not the customers fault that you can not figure out the right Balance for the cheese and chocolate ratio for a odd group number. I had to pay more for one person than I did for two. Never again.
