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.

There was no ambiance setting and the waiter spilled wine all over our table and someone at our table. While management handled the issue, the waiter dint really seem to care that it happened

It was a great night out for me and my boyfriend. He had never been to a melting pot and we were on vacation so we decided to go. Our waiter was fantastic. My boyfriend did not like the cheese we ordered and he made us a new one. The food was delicious and the desserts were amazing. I'm glad we decided to spend the extra money for our night out!

We have been to other Melting Pot restaurants and had wonderful experiences. This one has the potential to be up to par with a couple of improvements. The ambiance needs improvement with music and lighting and guests should not be able to hear full conversations from the tables around them. We had a pot of both the broth and the oil at our table, and our server set the oil way too high. Any food that we cooked in the oil immediately burnt within thirty seconds. Instead of replacing our oil, he turned down the temperature and put our potatoes in it to take out the burnt taste, but it did not work. The taste remained for any food we cooked in the oil. For spending almost $200 for our dinner, we were disappointed that we were unable to eat a lot of it.

We had another great meal at Melting Pot this past weekend! Both the food and the service were great. Plus, we had our almost 3 year old with us and the staff was so accommodating and great with her! This is one of our favorite restaurants and we will definitely be back soon!

It is a fun place...but be prepared to pay a hefty bill. It is quite expensive once you add a drink or two. It is worth the experience, but not sure I would do it again. Maybe come in for a drink and dessert.

My husband and I normally do not write reviews, but I just had to leave one for The Melting Pot! It was our first time dining there and it was truly a remarkable experience. The entire staff was friendly and our service was amazing. My husband is a chef and I was a server and have lots of customer service experience so we have high expectations. The food was fresh and delicious. Thank you for this experience.

I had the best experience here, and from my extensive work in the food service industry, that is a hard sell for me. I came out to celebrate my anniversary, from the time we walked up and the door was held open for us, to the host getting to know us on the way to the table, and the amazing service from our server Cody, everything was perfect. I highly recommend this location to anyone, it was intimate, cozy, and the perfect choice for our special occasion.

The food is spectacular, and the dining experience is one of the most unique you will ever have. Word of warning: the standard 4 course is quite a lot of food, and we had to pace ourselves to get through it. I am not sure what they do for leftovers.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our experience at the Melting Pot for our anniversary. We've never been to a fondue restaurant before and wanted to try something new. The food was delicious, service was superb and our waitress deserved a great tip due to how she thoroughly explained the menu, gave us good recommendations and she didn't mind taking pictures of us before we left. We will definitely be coming again!

Love this place and been here many times. Felt like this last time they were rushing to get us out. My husband hand not even finished cooking all his food and they were trying to clear the table. This seemed to happen for all courses. It was annoying that we couldn’t enjoy each course before they were clearing the table.

1. Atmosphere: romantic, jazz, cozy.
2. Service: professional, attentive, personal, Doug was great.
3. Food: fun to cook, quantity of one 4-course meal is enough for two.
4. Price: one 4-course meal is around $50 and is enough for two, Thursday's are half off wine night.
5. Occasion: Went for my birthday, perfect for large parties or romantic dinners for two.

Been there for dessert on my friends birthday. Ordered two types of chocolate fondue(cookie butter, flaming turtle), both were very good. Service was good too. The seating and ambiance in the room was not what I would expect in a fine dining or romantic restaurant. Pricing is a little on the higher side.

Melting pot is such a fun experience for us as a family. It’s expensive, so we only go once a year but we are never disappointed. With add ins, dinner and tip came to $300 for a family of four.
