The Melting Pot - Maple Shade NJ Ratings and Reviews
I have been to The Melting Pot before and had great experiences. This was my first time at this location and it was awful. It started out good but progressively got worse. My reservations were for 5:15pm and we didn't leave the restaurant till 9pm. Everything was good until the temperature started dropping, it got so cold that my nose was running. People around us were leaving too because of how cold it was. Not to mention the hair in the lobster and the fact we waited 40mins in between the main cooking and the chocolate pot. We had to take our chocolate to go because it was so cold. This was my birthday dinner from my boyfriend and I could have picked anywhere. The management ended up comping our check, which was nice but i would have preferred a better experience.
Wasn't very busy yet me and my date were forgotten about we didnt even get to experience true dessert part of our 4 course meal, yet we were charged the full rate. My date actually had to get up n go to the kitchen to locate an employee so that someone could give us our check. It was our 1st time and the menu seemed to be explained in a rush. On top of us being put in the corner away from everyone when there were bigger spacious table booths all over. Maybe then they may have remembered us. Over all the excitement n waiting so long to try I read reviews n it was nothing of what I read. I thought it was rude to bill us a full course meal and not provide that to us. No desire to return. The fondue delight was an ok choice the chicken and shrimp are horrible choices but the steak and lobster was actually good. The Cesar salad was good, and the sunrise sangria was iced up n watered down. Can't say what the chocolate was because like I said we were left in the corner forgotten about
My mother and I have been wanting to visit. It was her 84th birthday. Ii was our first visit and we had no clue on how the whole ordering process worked. Our server, Tracy was very personable and took the time to explain everything to us. Nice ambiance, great food, and fantastic service! We will surely recommend Melting Pot to others and will definitely be back!
Food is fun and a great experience for all. Desserts are the best part....and maybe next time I would do that alone!
Service is ALWAYS great at this location....just melting pot in general is quite spendy and they rarely offer any discounts.
That being said, for the price quality and quantity could be a little better.
They skimp on the expensive cuts and try and fill you up on breads and veggies.
This is the case at all Melting Pot locations though.
Awesome Experience ! I took my children here for their first time ( I had been to the one in Fort Lauderdale and Phila.) previously. Food was amazing and fun! Our waitress was helpful and sweet. It was so nice to have one in Maple Shade & not have to cross the bridge.
Thanks again :D
We've dined at several locations of The Melting Pot over the years. As always, the food was terrific and plentiful. A great location for special occasions. The only thing which was less than stellar was our server seemed to be a little overwhelmed that night. I don't know if his table load was too great for one person but he was at times not to be found. A few times, either the manager or other wait staff noticed there were plates to be cleared from our table or our drinks were getting low and took care of things. I commend those employees for stepping in. What I found a bit strange is when our server would eventually make it to our table, he was always surprised to hear that someone else had taken care of us. Certainly not a big problem, he just seemed a bit frazzled at times.
This was my husband's and my first visit, and it was second to none! Our waitress/manager was everything! She was very helpful, patient, and full of information, conversation, and laughter...we love that! The restaurant was immaculate, cozy, inviting...stellar! All of the food was fresh from appetizers to dessert! We were very pleased with the entire experience...even cooking our own food! Thanks for a fun time!
I had reservations for 5:30, we were sat at exactly 5:30. However, the total experience took over 3 1/2 hours!! Way, way, way too long to be at a sit down dinner!! I was completely dissatisfied with Joe long we had to wait between courses!! Extremely disappointed!!
You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces just good food from fresh ingredients. Dining at The Melting Pot was truly a remarkable experience. Good Friends, Good Food, Good Times! Eating and Dining are two different things. Eating is an activity. Dining, an Experience.
This is actually my fiance's favorite place to eat and experience. However, the location closest to us had shut down, and she hasnt been to one in 2 years. I decided to surprise her one weekend and drive and hour to the closest one (Maple Shade). It was fantastic, food and staff were amazing. Recommend It to anyone out there no matter what the occasion.
Always love the melting pot. A bit disapppointed on this visit. The restaurant week menu isn't worth the trip, such small portions compared to big night out.
Extremely slow and unresponsive service too, handled accordingly by the manager when we flagged her down.
We normally love Melting Pot, however this last visit was a bit chaotic, they must have been short staffed, while our waitress was very very kind we felt there was a complete lack of attention. We would be finished a course and sat waiting for 15 to 20 minutes in a lull. Drink and beverages were not refilled until we had another server come and ask if we needed refills. Again, the server was very sweet and we truly think she was overwhelmed but it left it for a very frustrating dinner.
Please read this comment to the end to avoid any unhappy experience.
Food was great and excellent service from our waitress Tracy.
However, the table they gave us was awful, very tiny. We could not reach the pot easy, my husband need to keep getting out of his seat in order to check the food, my sleeves got all mess up with food because everytime i need to reach for my food i need to go over my food and sauces. We did not enjoy the time because of these issues. All the food, sauces and drinks were cramp. Even to reach the sodas we needed to get up as they were behind the hot pot against the wall because was no space.
We ordered the Endless Menu and because of this we decided not to order more food and order the chocolate foundue and take it home.
For us the experience was terrible.
Nevertheless, the server Tracy was great she did the best and keep apologizing for the space issue. She did the best she could and kept us smiling. At the end she realized we were so uncomfortable and told us that she will make a note for the next time we come in not to give us that table.
I feel sorry for the waitresses because they need to deal with the issue of the tiny tables.
I understand the owner wants more business but this is not the way.
This is not our first time at the melting pot we were regular at the atlantic city location.
For me this time we wasted our time and money as i could not enjoy any if the fondue and they did not have any other table to accomodate us. We were looking forward for this day because of our anniversary and my husband knew I love the Melting Pot.
Took me two days to do this review because i was so upset and dissapointed.
I do have pictures to proof.
Will i go again? I do not know.
Are we dissapointed? Very much
This time we wasted $109.00 plus my laundry bill.
Melting Pot was my favorite restaurant and used it for all my special occasions but now do not know.
The Melting Pot has always been one of my favorites. It had been over 2 years since I dined here, and I really missed it. The service was great, the restaurant is very clean, the food was delicious and I truly loved the entire experience. The Endless Fondue option was well worth the price. The men were extra pleased to have an endless option of steak and shrimp, and that made them too full toe eat all the chocolate, leaving more for me!
The cheese appetizer was ok, the desert was good but the entrée was very bland even with the sauce. Drinks and the entrée were way overpriced for the value. We paid $10 for drinks that were mostly ice. It was fun for the kids but at over $200 for two adults/2 kids we won't be back.
