Absolutely fantastic! I can't believe I've never been here before. The food was amazing. The server was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the entire menu. Even though it costs more, I highly recommend getting the full 4-course meal to get the full experience... cheese, salad, entree, and dessert.

We enjoyed our meal my only feedback is the waitress should have checked on us sooner than she did. She never asked if we needed more to drink & we spent time looking for her.

There was a bug in my drink. The waitress didn't get the manager to apologize. She just said she got me a new drink. It was unclear whether or not that was true. The burners on the tables aren't secure and they put the technology under the table in a way that it's almost impossible not to bash your knees when trying to sit down. Additionally, they chord for the pots just hangs underneath the table and is not pinned to the bottom of the table, so it constantly hits your knee throughout your dinner. Further, we had a reservation a week in advance and still had to wait more than 15 minutes. I've been to several Melting Pots around the country and this one does not deserve the Melting Pot name.

Our Anniversary dinner was wonderful and our waitress/cook Katherine was an absolute delight.
She explained everything well and made the evening flow perfectly.
We will definitely be back to enjoy The Melting Pot again.
Thank you.

Highly over priced. I can't rationalize spending $100 for two people to eat fondue when I can go to tucanos and spend $40 and eat endless premium meats

Katelyn was a fantastic server! Very pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was perfect as usual and even let me get my favorite banana foster fondue that isn’t on the menu anymore! Thanks for another great dining experience for my husband and I.

We've come here every year for anniversary, and will continue to do so. The atmosphere is quiet, the lighting is perfect, the service is wonderful and informative. The only drawback is the price for bite-sized pieces of food that you cook yourself. However, you already know that going into it. Either way, it's a unique experience, and worth doing at least once if you never have.

As always, the staff and management go above and beyond to ensure their guests are taken care of. The food was great and the service was on point. We tried the St. Paddy's Day special which was well thought out and delicious.

Went for my birthday dinner and it was such a great evening. The host gave us a nice booth towards the back of the restaurant. Our waitress was so helpful and friendly throughout the entire meal. We will definitely go back for my next birthday.

This was an annual family dinner, a special occasion. None of us had been to a Melting Pot restaurant before, so this was a new experience for all of us. We enjoyed the shared experience so much; it made the evening a real joy. Miss CAS was our server and she was delightful and helpful throughout the whole evening. We do plan on returning. A great time. Expect $50 pp.

I had not been to the Melting Pot in a very long time. It exceeded my expectations and was even better than I had remembered. The food was flavorful and plenty of it. We had a fabulous time sharing food and fun with our entire family. Our waitress was pleasant and knowledgeable.

We took our kids (10,9,3) to MP for a special family dinner before deployment, they loved it. Service was exceptional as always, we go here about 2-3 times a year. Adam was our server and he was great, very friendly and made every effort to ensure we were happy with our meal and service. I will definitely be returning to this location.

this was our first time at the melting pot and it was great!! My boyfriend and I went for a late valentines dinner because I’ve always wanted to go. You definitely get enough food that you will not leave hungry!! It’s a bit pricy, something you wouldn’t do all the time but it’s definitely worth the every once in awhile!

Awesome food, good service. The only negative point is that this restaurant is more "open" seating than other melting pots. Its not really a negative i was just surprised. Good food, good service I would go back.

I enjoyed the meal and our waitress. She was extremely nice and helped us out, with figuring out the menu and how to order. This was me and my girlfriends first time there, and I wanted to take her somewhere special for Valentine’s Day. The food and service was excellent and they helped up every step of the way. Definitely will be back for a double date with friends

The cheese was incredibly watery and not at all good. The waitress took my salad before I could finish eating it because she wanted to put the entree down. We had raw meat sitting in cold oil for five minutes before we realized it wasn’t even turned up. The waitress was nice, she just came around way too often and didn’t seem to know what she was doing. I’ve been to this location twice and both times have not been as good as it could be. Might not consider this one again.
