Staff was amazing and super helpful. Really loved the cheddar and bacon cheese appetizer and white chocolate and s’more dessert. Definite repeat for apps/dessert. The main course was a little small for the price and you are cooking it yourself, so factor in that into time spent at restaurant. Loved the coq du vin sauce, didn’t like the

We love the food, but the service has been hit and miss lately. Our table repeatedly was overlooked for a party of the same size across from us (we had the same server.) Our cheese was left on the table so long the remnants burned in the pot. More than once someone else stopped by to take things away. A tray of vegetables was dropped on one party member, and at one point, one of our guests had her drink removed, with no drink left in its place. It was disappointing. But we have had so many good experiences there, and love the food, so we will be back. I just hope the service is a little better!

We came to the Melting Pot to celebrate a birthday and wedding. Both were noted in our reservation, however neither was acknowledged upon arrival, nor at any time during our meal. We've eaten at Melting Pot many times, but not this location.

The menu at this location would not allow for different cooking styles as we have experienced at other locations, which was disappointing. The preparation of the cheese course was unlike our experiences at other locations as well. The main cooking style and the chocolate courses did not come ready to enjoy. We had to wait each time for the medium to become hot.

The food was good and we had plenty. Don't think we'll be back if we're in Louisville again.

Overall good experience. Lots of food! Good flavor and great service. The ambiance is a little off being that it is in a strip mall. Be aware your clothes will smell strongly of fondue when you leave. :)

We felt the experience was a little rushed compared to previous visits. We were surprised to find out the waiter did not let us know gratuity had already been included when we were paying on the mobile pay device so we felt we far over tipped because we did not know.

Our son has Celiac disease and is gluten free. I have made numerous reservations for our family of 4 on Open Table and had a table with two burners. We sat down and I immediately said to our server that we didn’t have two burners and that this would be a problem. I explained that this meant we would have not have two choices of cheese, desert and cooking styles of meat given that we are paying $90 x 2 for all four of us (our children are older). He did not respond and simply asked for our drink order. I was not happy but had no choice but to stay where we were - we were super hungry and we were celebrating my birthday which was the day before. We explained to the server that we needed gluten free for our son and requested gluten free for everything since we had to dip all of our items in the same fondue pot since we only had one burner. When he came with the cheese fondue without gluten free bread, luckily I questioned him about the dippers being gluten free. He then said he thought we only needed the fondue to be gluten free. I then had to explain to him that all our items needed to be gluten free to prevent cross contamination. He then said that he wished he was “gluten insensitive” himself so he could” understand it better”, he also said he was “not used to people ordering gluten free”. Your servers need to understand the difference between non gluten preference and a food allergy like Celiac in which my son’s intestines become inflamed when exposed to gluten. They also need to understand what gluten includes - wheat, rye, barley and malt which is why the beer type added to the cheese fondue is very important. Our bill is always over $200 whenever we eat at MP for the four of us. In the future I will request on Open table to have two burners so that we can safely have more options in our fondue choices.

We went to the Melting Pot for our 1 year anniversary and there couldn’t have been a better place to celebrate the special date. The booths were very cute and comfy, server was ready to assist the moment we sat down and we were regularly checked up on to assure satisfaction. The courses were absolutely stunning. From the cheese fondue opener to the chocolate fondue finale, there was nothing to complain about, everything was so good and it was really interesting to cook your own food. We will definitely return to the Melting Pot and try other fondues as well as cooking styles. Thank you Melting Pot for the full experience.

The waiter did not eat our food up before we got it on the table and did not explain to us that we needed to wait even further for the cheese to melt, or the oil to heat up, therefore we were halfway through the cheese before it got really ready to eat. I thought maybe they had just change the recipe but it just wasn’t ready. Also the oil was not hot when they brought it to the table so when we put our food in which he said we could do immediately it just sat there and oil and got really greasy and the tempura batter does not work well unless the oil is hot when the battered food hits the pan. Greasy mess. Also the carrots tasted like they had been bleached. Also one of my favorite sauces is the teriyaki, unfortunately someone had mixed in hey sweet and sour sauce with it so it tasted odd. When we asked him to check and see if they had the teriyaki, it was about 45 minutes before we found him again and it was only once we had gone to the manager and asked for our check. We opted not to get dessert because the experience was so bad. This used to be one of my favorite places to go out and have conversation, however the last few times it has been like very dumpy looking. Slow and inattentive service and expensive for the experience.
