I rarely write reviews but I felt compelled in this case. I can’t speak highly enough about this place, the food was outstanding and everything was top quality. Everyone is so polite and the the ambience was so nice. The chocolate fondue for dessert really blew my socks off too! Highly recommended!
Super fun for my son and I to hangout!
The experience and food are still good but the value has declined over the last 10 years. Portions, menu options/value, ability to get extra items when the first portion runs out (bread, veggies, etc) is more difficult, and many other small things. The main vibe I get is that corners are being cut wherever possible to cut costs...... and they all add up to a reduced experience for the cost. The overall price of a meal has gone up slightly but not huge. To get the same amount of food and enjoyment we end up having to spend more. We loved Melting Pot 10-15 years ago but after the last visit I am starting to question if it is worth going back versus a higher end restaurant where for the same money I would walk out feeling better about what I received for the bill. If there was another fondue type restaurant in town we would definitely be trying/comparing it. Wishing for the old Melting Pot back.... or perhaps trying a different location to see if the chain is changing or just the one location.
I highly recommend this place! Everything is amazing. The staff is incredible and they go above and beyond to make sure that their customers are well taken care of for sure.
Their alpine cheese fondue is the absolute best, but they have no bad food. 14/9 would recommend.
This is our tradition to come on Monday every year when we attend our conference in Madison!
Fun place for couples & romantic!
Was very disappointed with the service. We waited for very long periods between each course. I actually think the waitress may have forgotten we were there on more than one occasion. Asked for drink refills and did not receive until asked two more times. Overall the food did not make up for the poor service. Will not go back.
Our waitress was very helpful, especially when we were trying to use the entire amount on our gift card.
Very enjoyable evening!! They accommodated our gluten/dairy free eater so graciously. Our waiter was attentive and helpful.
We bought groupon tickets and were supposed to have 2 choices for dinner cooking methods and desserts since we had another couple, who were paying seperately, with us and we were sat at a one pot table. It also seemed at the end of our experience the restaurant was getting busy so we were forgotten by our waitress. I had a better experience with a group of 15 people then i did with 4. And it was our 1st wedding anniversary which they did nothing for! Not sure if id go again for the experience.
The value for a meal that I had to cook myself was not comparable. I enjoyed the food very much, but I did not think the price was proper for a meal I cooked myself. As well, I did not know I had to cook my entrees and had the impression, as with most other restaurants, that my meal would be prepared and ready to consume after my order.
The portion sizes were also not the best. The selection was superb, and the seasoning was excellent. Even with a spacious four-course meal, I left feeling under-satisfied. I don’t expect to feel engorged, and would rather not after four courses, but I expected more.
Overall, my wife and I enjoyed our meal, we enjoyed our time to ourselves from our daughter for a few hours, and highly recommend our server to anyone. She was outstanding.
It was our first visit. We were very confused on how to order our food. If it was explained at any point that would have helped. Also I was charged twice the listed amount for my child's kids meal. We left contemplating going to get pizza on our way home as we were still hungry $140 later. 1 red potatoe divided between four people is just not enough food.
Love going there! We celebrate every anniversary there and sometimes for birthdays we just go for cheese and chocolate. It’s always a great experience.
Our server was wonderful and willing to put up with all of our chatting. It was a perfect Ladies night out!
Everything about our experience was good except that we only wanted to get cheese fondue (for dinner), and the portion sizes were ridiculously tiny. Note that we are not even big eaters who expect a ton of food. We had to order again after the first order disappeared rapidly.
Great for a date so you can have an intimate conversation.
Always love coming to Melting Pot for a night out. Food is always delicious, service is always excellent. Can’t wait to come back!
Service was out of this world! We had my daughters 16th Birthday party here and it was so beautiful. Our server bent over backwards for us and the food was exceptional.
My sister and I went on a Monday night for Ladies Night and it is a great deal! The four course meal and certain drinks are discounted which makes the experience a little more affordable. Our waitress was amazing!!
Our waitress was wonderful!!!!! We will be back soon!
Have been here many times and everything is consistently good. Service always friendly and timely
Perfect place to celebrate 35 years of marriage. Absolutely delicious food! Great service!
Lunch was delicious for restaurant week. The cheese fondue was excellent- although we could have used more bread as we ran out before the cheese was gone. Rather than offer more breads they just took away the unused cheese. The salad was good. The dessert was amazing as usual. Even with the restaurant week special it was $74 for 4 of us for lunch with only water to drink. Definitely more of a special occasion restaurant- but still a favorite.
My husband and I arrived right when they opened at 5pm for dinner to redeem a Groupon. Service was fast and everything tasted fantastic! Plan to spend 1.5-2 hours for the full 4 course meal experience. Well worth it! Can be pricy without a Groupon. Not a bad idea to check their menu prior to arriving if you have never been here before. Lots of choices, but no matter what you choose, you can’t go wrong!
Our party of five came for the ladies night special on Monday. Even the gentleman in our party were allowed to order from the special menu. Our server (I believe her name was Megan) explained everything well and was the right amount of attentive. They accidentally brought my sister potstickers instead of chicken, but rectified the situation and let us keep the extra. The four course menu had plenty of options but was well organized to avoid confusion. Overall, we all really enjoyed the experience and the food.

Outstanding, tasty food, with exceptional service!
The Melting Pot was awesome. Went to one in South Carolina and loved it so had to go back once I found one closer to home. The whole experience along with the wait staff was exceptional.

Great for birthdays or other special occasions. Go there once a year and that is enough.
Our server was amazing! It was our first time. She explained the entire experience and made us feel very welcome and at home! She gave great recommendations and input and helped make the evening super special!

This was my first time here and it was my birthday dinner. Our sever was just not very friendly. One of my guest ordered a drink and it took over 30 midtown get it. She never apologized for it taking so long. Also we were very cramped. I was really looking forward to a great experience, this is a place I always wanted to go.
My girlfriend and I both greatly enjoyed our time Abe experience at The Melting Pot. It was for our one year anniversary, we had our own private booth with a curtain for privacy. Booth was a bit small and lighting was a bit dark, but we enjoyed it still. Our server was phenomenial. Our experience was a 5 out of 5.

We had a 9:30 pm reservation and the restaurant closed at 11 pm that night. Upon arriving no one was at the hostess stand so we waited. Upon seating we saw no waitress so we waited. Upon ordering our drinks and food we saw no waitress bringing our drinks so we waited. Upon receiving our order we asked our waitress for some additional sauces and veggies and began to eat while we waited. Eventually we needed the additional sauce and refills on our beverage but still no waitress. After some more time my spouse got up and met the waitress around the kitchen area where she was chatting it up. Not the experience I expect when paying at least $45 a head.
We had 5pm reservations and were seated quickly. However, it took until nearly 5:30 for us to even get water brought to our table. That was surprising.
Thank you for dining with us. My apologies it took so very long to receive water and service. I have addressed this with our staff. We hope to see you again soon. Best, Dave - Owner

Great food and server was especially attentive without hovering. She explained things well and made good recommendations. Place was quiet, but quite full for a weeknight. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Dinner was absolutely incredible. So happy that there is now a vegan option! The vegan beer cheese was heavenly and melted just like the real thing. Our server, Brad was great too! Very tentative and lovely to talk to. We’ll be back soon!!!
TaylorB, Thank you for dining with us and for your 5-star review and rating! Happy you were able to try our new vegan menu! We hope to see you again soon! Best, Dave - Owner
