Food was amazing as always. However, our server forgot our boxed salad, and seemed to be way too rushed when the restaurant wasn't crowded. The assistant manager frequently stopped by and was nice.

Not impressed. Food was just ok and to pay $118 for 2 people just seemed way overpriced. If food was excellent maybe I would be ok with the price but nothing I had was that good. Food was just ok at best, will not be going back.

Our server Austin was new and very sweet, however he was VERY sweaty and it dripped on the table. He also did not clean the previous plates before bringing the next course. It was just not the experience you expect from paying this much for dinner.

I have been to Melting Pot with my family and also with my friends for almost 20 times. This is the first time I had a worst worst experience.
I had gone for 2 Four Courses.
This time the quantity was way less then the previous times. People at Melting Pot Louisville treated me as a first timer and was not even bothered to listen my words on Quantity.
Timely Service on Food - Had to remind twice to bring the Hot/Warm water, extra breads, extra fruits.
While going for the last one Chocholate, the person didn't even bother to lighten the Bourbon Pecan which they did every single time when I opted for that. I felt embarrassing infront of my friend. What is that Melting Pot will do to me to Compensate this?

We enjoyed sharing a unique dining experience, but were surprised not to have top quality accommodations in an upscale restaurant. We were taken to a booth and when I slid onto the bench I noticed it was TORN and with a hole! Our guest had a sticky table in front of her and it was pointed out to our server, but then we had to remind her to bring a cloth to clean it. The table was very high in relation to the seat which made eating difficult! Also, the table size was great if there were only 2 people, but was too small to hold all the dishes for 4 persons. The noise made it difficult to carry on a conversation and to hear the server's directions.
The food was good after we got the hang of how to cook it. The selection of vegetables was unusual and not enough for 4 people.
We were surprised when our server brought the "treat" for our birthday guest. It consisted of 4 one inch squares of rice krispie treats with a candle on top! Overall, the experience left much to be desired for a rather expensive dinner.

The con: they ran out of oil.
The pro: our waitress, Heather, went above and beyond to go to a nearby restaurant and borrow peanut oil for our dinner. She's a freakin' star.
Also, the food was delicious.

I was very upset with this visit! The first time I went i had amazing time and service and i chose this place for my aunt and uncles birthday it was horrible service. There were many times the waiter forgot things we asked and we waited more than 20 minutes waiting for things we needed with our meals.

My husband and I have been to the Melting pot many, many times and have always loved it. But this time around, because the service we received was very poor, it was the worst time we've ever been. Our server took forever with everything, from getting drinks, to getting orders, to even getting my husband's credit card back to us when we paid. While we still loved the food, it will be a while before we come back due to poor service.

The atmosphere is nice. We tried the 4 course meal. We had the Bourbon Bacon Cheddar cheese to start. The Bourbon flavor was overwhelming. Do not recommend this particular cheese if you don't like Bourbon. I would recommend using the cast iron skillet for the meats. Over all the price is high for having to cook your own dinner. You definitely paying for the experience not the food.

I took my daughter and her friends for her birthday celebration. I was disappointed with our service. As soon as I mentioned we would only be having dessert instead of the full 4-course meal, I felt like our server was done with us. We only saw her a couple more times that evening, and we couldn't flag anyone down when we needed assistance. I went to the Melting Pot in May with some friends and we had so much fun - our server was great and made it even more exciting. I expected that experience for my daughter and her friends. The table next to us was also having a birthday celebration and their server brought a treat and sang to the little boy. My daughter was excited when they first came out and started singing, thinking it was for her, and then realized it wasn't. Dipping treats in chocolate was fun, but overall it was not the dynamic, fun celebration I was hoping to have.

Always love the melting pot! Was disappointed that we were seated right next to the hostess stand, especially since it was our anniversary dinner- lost the ambiance there. Can’t wait to come again!

We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there. They brought us a plate with happy 50th anniversary on it. The waiter was very attentive and the manager talk to us for at least a half hour,and as always the food was excellent.

The food is pretty pricey but well prepared. It's about $45 for a 4 course meal and you cook your own food. The real upside is the desserts at the end. It's a fun place to eat on a date night. Our server was excellent and the booths feel cozy. Good experience overall

My daughter wanted to go here for her tenth birthday (my kids love this place). As always, the food, drinks, and service were fantastic. And our server went above and beyond in getting her a dessert plate of her own with cake pieces (for the fondue) and happy birthday written on it in different sauces...which she thought was the greatest thing ever. Nothing but good things to say!
