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.

I took my girls (6&9) on a special mother/daughters date before we went to the Nutcracker. I was a bit concerned it may not be a place for kids but they had a kids version of the fondue and our server really catered to them. Overall - our service from Levi was great and the food was great but the overall experience was amazing. Kids loved it and so did I!

Almost perfect. The height of their tables does not jive with the seat height. They recently did a remodel. Very beautiful but this was an oversight. Won’t keep me from returning though because the Melting Pot is amazing!

Service was great. Food was just ok. Apparently they have changed the green goddess because the texture and taste was totally different. Normally when I leave I am already planning a return visit….not this time.

Poor service this time. Had to ask for plates three times to eat our food on. Drinks brought out after food was served. We gave server two gift cards to put towards the check, but the entire amount of check was charged on our credit card. Had to have someone void transaction and redo. Water refills were non-existent.

My wife and I spent our anniversary at Melting Pot. We had an outstanding time. Turns out Tuesday is half off bottles of wine up to $75.

While our waiter was new to CLT, he had great suggestions on the cheese and cooking style.

Definitely worth a look for those special occasions.

The food was good-very good as usual. The veggies in the first cheese fondue course were cut too small but the Classic Alpine cheese fondue was excellent. The artisan bread rounds and fruit were fine. The salads (California for her, Spinach with Bacon Vinaigrette for me) were very good. The proteins from our entrées (Pacific Rim and Land and Sea) varied from so-so to very good with the salmon, ahi tuna, herb-crusted chicken, and duck breast being our favorites. Our server was good but near the end of the entrée seemed to be pushing us to finish even though it was well before closing and the restaurant was not that busy.

I have eaten here for over 20 years. Probably the worst experience. I despise when a server stacks plates, complains about job, etc. Quality has definitely declined as the price has increased.

Really good food & service! One thing to note- if you want more pots you need to request when you make the reservation. For example we had 4 people and the standard was 1 pot & we wanted 2. They were able to accommodate us fortunately.

It was our first time there! The food was delicious and a wonderful, new experience for us both! We were celebrating my friend’s birthday who is vegan and the chooses were superb for him! We did the Diamond package, it was soo nice, private and very romantic. The staff are informative about the menu and prompt to checking on us.

We went there for my daughters birthday. This was our 4th time there and we were very happy with the service and food. We got the Wisconsin Cheddar and it was good. The pacific rim for the main part of the meal and Yin & Yan for the dessert. The severs will bring more food to dip and sauces as you need them. We enjoyed our special night out.
