It’s crowded and there is nothing special about the food. My son with motor skill issues had a hard time managing his own food. It’s an experience, but nothing that great.

My husband and I went to The Melting Pot for a date night. I was excepting it to be a little better than it was. Our servers name was Alex and he was awesome. The food... not so much. We got baked potato cheese dip which was okay, but you have no choice on what they bring you to dip into the cheese. They brought us bread, green apples, celery 3 small pieces of broccoli & carrots. It would have been better had they actually gave you good stuff to dip in the cheese or gave you a choice. We spent $100 on a this dinner and in my opinion it was not worth more than $30. They bring you some raw meats and you have to cook them yourself. The only good thing was the desert plate. If I ever go back to The Melting Pot (which probably won’t happen) I will ONLY get the desert tray & chocolate dip. They where pretty busy and our food took a good while to come out but I didn’t say anything because I felt bad that our server Alex was running table to table like they didn’t have enough servers. I give the server Alex 5 stars because he was super cool but the restaurant and food I give 2 stars overall. I was actually pretty disappointed.

We love the Melting Pot and have visited them all over the US. The experience is amazing and the food is delicious. Our waitress was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The new open concept at this one is pretty but I missed the intimacy of the way it used to be. It was very loud.

We usually go to the Melting Pot in Myrtle Beach. It's very nice, but Pittsburg...your's is big and beautiful. We liked that we could try two different broths for our proteins. Everything was fantastic and our waiter was knowledgeable. It's an expensive date. We always know we will be dropping over $100, but it's our one time a year treat to ourselves. We will definitely be back. I'm actually thinking about booking a girls trip just so we can eat here!

Overall we enjoyed our experience. The only downfall was since this was our first time at The Melting Pot, it would have been helpful to have an experienced server to better help and guide us. We had a new server and we were her first customers. She did a great job however, she was still learning as were we.

Stephanie was our waitress and she was so wonderful! She helped us pick the best fondues for the cheese and dessert portions and she checked on our table frequently to make sure everything was set for us. The entrees are a tad pricey for what you get but Stephanie's cheerful attitude and attentiveness made up for that. This is definitely a perfect night out with teen kids or as a couple and I will definitely go back again.

Our first time at the new location......liked the old place better...quieter and more intimate.

We usually have excellent wait staff but was definitely disappointed this time....he just seemed to be rushing to get his job done.

But the food was excellent.

Family dinner with Grandma during Restaurant Week. Can’t beat the price as $32.19 for three courses. Alex, our server, was excellent. Very friendly, remembered everyone names, explained the food option. Manager also stopped at the table - nice touch.

Always a great place to dine. Took my husband there for the first time and it exceeded our expectations. Alex was our server and he was OUTSTANDING! No only was the food great, the service was superb, the ambience was peaceful and the experience overall was one of the best places in Pittsburgh to enjoy an evening without the kids (we have five).. We will be making it our 'go-to' place to enjoy an evening out!

This was my first time visiting the new restaurant location. The food and service was excellent. The decor of the restaurant is beautiful. You can eat either inside of outside. The interior portion is very open and even has a loft level above the main restaurant floor. There is a romantic ambiance with the searth tones and soft lighting. Definitely something pleasingly different...a culinary adventure....! Perfect 1st time date night to break the ice or enjoyable with family or a group of friends. You won't be sorry...

The quality of the food is great. Small portions but it’s bigger than that, you go to melting pot for the experience.

FYI, people should be able to option what dessert pieces they want, the same way you can with the entree!

As always the food was delicious and the service was nice. I am not a fan of the new open concept building. I was less that 5 ft away from the strangers beside us and the partition isn't high enough to block the view.

My wife and I went there for our 6th anniversary. We had a wonderful experience and our waiter (I believe Sean was his name) made it even better. He made great recommendations for us when we had a hard time deciding and brought us a dessert plate with “happy Anniversary” written on it. We will certainly be going back!

Our food was great and our server did a great job. There was a drunk lady at the bar that I think may have been a worker that was off duty. She was loud and annoying. She fell off her stool and was yelling a lot. Maybe the bar tenders need to learn when to cut alcohol off for people.

We are frequent diners at the Melting Pot and believe the experience to be awesome. We had visitors and they have a 12y and 15y - their comments - "this was the best meal of my life" and " this was so much fun". Mitch our server was so incredible with the kids - the 12y was saying "and the waiter was so cool too".

We absolutely love this place and Stacey (Manager) and Amanda (waitress, cook, etc) are super amazing always whether they are there or not.

Highly recommend - and enjoy the experience - it's not fast food people. Chill out and enjoy the journey.

Our server was fantastic and the food was great. However, this was our first time dining at the Melting Pot since the restaurant moved. The new location feels much less private and upscale. The new restaurant is open and has you sitting close to and within view of other dinners, which gets loud. Also, it is much more casual, which does not match with the cost of the food.
