Fondue
The Melting Pot Restaurant in Charlotte is where fun is cooked up fondue style. Our Charlotte restaurant is located in the Midtown neighborhood. Close to all Uptown hotels, Bank of America Stadium, Spectrum Center, Blumenthal Performing Arts center. The experience is great in a group and romantic for couples. The intimate location provides a casually elegant, intimate atmosphere. The relaxing four-course experience begins with a cheese fondue prepared table side. A fresh salad follows while your entrée pot heats up. You’ll simmer a variety of tantalizing meats, seafood and vegetables. Each morsel is hot, fresh and delicious and all entrées are accompanied by an array of dipping sauces to add to the flavorful fun. Chocolate fondue is the finale.

We have been to The Melting Pot several times and this has been by far the most disappointing experience, I feel like I wasted $150. The service was just awful. He had no time for our table, we sat for a good 15 minutes before he came back to take our dessert order and had to ask him to take all of our dinner dishes to get them out of the way that we had piled up. We ordered the flaming turtle because the kids were excited to see the chocolate set on fire but he just left the liquor on the table, we would have waited for him to come back but he didn’t for a good 10 minutes or so. Just wasn’t the best experience for what I paid for.

The food was outstanding. Our server was pleasant and informative. It was more than going out to eat, dinner at the Melting Pot was an experience. It was a little expensive, but well worth the cost.

Samuel was our server! From beginning to end, we had an asking experience! He was attentive, he paced our meal perfectly, and his signature “You’re welcome” made us smile! Will definitely be dining here again, very soon!

Very disappointed that we were asked multiple times about allergies and when the waiter brought dessert he said there might be pistachios in one of the items. My daughter is very allergic so we asked if he could check/confirm. He came back 10-15 minutes later. Very frustrating.

Server was awesome!! Food is good, but seems a bit overpriced for what it is - especially since I am cooking it!! But the service from the hostess to the manager were great. Wife loves coming here.

Our server, Breanna (sp?), was a delight. The food, as always, was delicious. This is our 1st time dining at The Melting Pot during restaurant week and were pleased to find that the portion sizes nor offerings were changed because of the "deal" (restaurant week). We also had this interesting little table that was in an alcove by itself - it was extremely private and romantic hence my rating that the noise level was quiet.

The food was great but it took over 3 hours to eat. We go at least once a year and it has never taken that long to eat there. Service was very slow.

Great server, food, and hostesses. Some rowdy tables around us and a love connection going on directly in front of our table. Not as private as we had hoped. Will be back another time.

Ryan was our waiter for the evening. Albeit the restaurant was full, he took his time when at the table with us and made sure he explained all the dining options. Ryan is amazing! I love that other staff continue to float through to refill beverages. We had a wonderful evening and highly recommend.

I’ve been to the melting pot several times over the years this time it was for restaurant week. The food was good the service was good ,the staff always explains everything if you’re not used to ordering the fondue meals. If I had one area I’d like to see improved it would be that when you’re sitting with a group of two or three or four you all have to agree on the fondu style because nearly all the tables only have one burner. It would be nice to pick a cheese that’s may be different than what somebody else at the table wants or to pick a chocolate that’s may be different then somebody else the table but that’s the way it is now it’s a consensus situation. Fortunately we worked it out however I could see situations where that could become problematic especially given peoples differing tastes and the cost of the meal.

Me and my boyfriend wanted to celebrate restaurant week and have a nice date night. He had never been to Melting Pot before and I hadn’t been in years so we decided it would be a fun time and we were so impressed. All the staff we encountered were so friendly and nice, we were seated right away which even with a reservation isn’t always expected for restaurants during restaurant week! We had an amazing server, the food was so delicious and we were sat in a very private area that made our night feel even more romantic. Can’t wait to go back

The entire evening was spectacular. The acoustics was a little loud but not enough to ruin the dinner but at times I found myself speaking over another guest to talk to my wife. Outside of that small inconvenience the food and service was exemplary. I could not have asked for a better staff to wait on me.
