The food good but cannot say very good. It is mainly the concept why people should go. Otherwise entrees are mostly boiled in little flavour broth. Nothing more than that. All those entrees and desserts u also get in any other restaurant but just that the concept of cooking the remaining 20% on ur table is good. But if we consider price, it is way high priced as compared to the value. It is not as valuable as $50 per head. Max to max $30 and that is also more.

This was my first time there. We had a very good experience overall, although somewhat overpriced.. I think it is a great place for a celebration, such as a birthday or anniversary dinner.

Dinner was wonderful as always, but special mention about the salmon which tasted even better than usual, and the sweet and spicy shrimp, that flavor is a winner. Also the SA’s who worked last night were exceptional, definitely on their game.

The restaurant was busy as expected since today was close to Valentines day but the place was running like a well oiled machine. We were greeted promptly by Amanda at the front desk and then quickly seated. Our server Sarah was phenomenal in every way and even worked with an outside party that had wanted to surprise us with a dinner that was paid for unbeknownst to us. Drinks from the bar were filled quickly and dinner courses came out rapid fire as if we were the only guests for the evening. Definitely one of the best melting pot experiences we have had thanks to the great staff. We love visiting here because they are all so friendly! Thanks again for another wonderful dinner!

Best Anniversary we have had in a restaurant in a very long time! I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for incredible food, service and just a fun time! The price is really good for all the food you receive. We have spent hundreds for a dinner and left starving....at the Melting Pot we left full, they really give a lot of food and making the dinner is so fun. It was just a perfect night out!
