Love the Melting Pot. The only thing I don't like about the new location is that it's not as cozy as the last place. It's quite noisy with the expanded facility. Other then that, the food and service was amazing!

The food was good but not as good as I expected. We each had the 4 course meal at a cost of 46.00 each. The cheese we chose was Baked Potato and that was just okay, nothing to wow me. The salad was strawberry spinach with lemon poppyseed dressing, very good. I had the classic entre so steak, pork, shrimp, and chicken. The teriyaki steak was tough (my husband had the all steak entre and said the same) like they used round steak. The dips were a nice addition. The chocolate dessert was good. We each had a drink and I just think 10.40 for a single mixed drink is a bit high but considering where we were it waa expected. All in all it was good and the seating was cozy, perfect for our date.

My boyfriend and I had never been there before, we went for our anniversary and we LOVED it! Our server was very helpful and so nice, we found you get so much food for what you pay for and we found it to be a good value. We did the four course choice and I was worried it would be too much food but everything is light enough to where it’s the perfect amount. Also the love martini was amazing!

Went during the 4th of July Advertisement for 2 different 17.76 specials, one cheese/chocolate and the other an entree. Food was delicious and our evening was great until our bill was brought and weren't explained that it was 17.76 each. Instead of paying $36 for our meal it was $72. This would haven't been an issue if it was clearly explained but definitely put a damper on a great evening.

it was our first visit to this restaurant, and the server's explanation of the (complicated) menu was outstanding. Very good food and quite a social meal. Took us three hours to eat dinner so build in some extra time.

The Melting Pot has really deteriorated from the restaurant it once was. No longer do they take the time to melt the cheese and ingredients as a presentation to go with the hefty price tag for the food. The appetizer cheese choices have changed, in that the Alpine White is not the same ingredients as the original. The dessert fondue was supposed to be white chocolate...but it was more like a thick vanilla syrup. $90 later and I left feeling disappointed and will not go back.

As a person with Celiacs Disease it is very difficult to find a restaurant that truly understands your food allergies. Our dining experience was incredible. From the moment we walked in they were aware and made me very comfortable that they would handle everything with care. I was impressed and will go back. I actually had an amazing meal and didn’t get sick!

This was a fun experience, but the food is very expensive and you are paying for the novelty of cooking and dipping your own food. The savory food was not seasoned and salt and pepper was not provided. The chocolate and desserts to dip were wonderful.

While admittedly a bit of a foodie, I went into dinner at the Melting Pot with pretty modest expectations. Let’s just say that they barely managed to meet even those. The 4 course menu is a solid construct starting with the traditional cheese fondue which was tasty once sufficiently warmed up. The salad was very good although we ordered a second salad given the small size of the shared dish. The meal sort of came apart with the vegetarian main course cooked in the ‘coq au vin’ pot which smelled like something coming out of a locker room. The chocolate fondue finish was very good. Fortunately we had a terrific server who made the evening fun despite the otherwise mediocre dining experience. The whole fondue thing is kind of fun but not a restaurant we’ll be running back to.

I love the melting pot and have been coming here for years. The only thing I will say I am disappointed in and miss is the fondues being cooked at the table and not already premise. It takes away from the experience in my personal opinion. Otherwise I still absolutely love this restaurant and it continues to be my favorite!

The server did not pay attention to us at all. Our pot was always sitting on the hot burner even when it was empty. Our drinks were empty most of the dinner. She was not personable at all and did not care to have any conversation. We have been to other Melting Pot restaurants and were very disappointed!

While it was good the serving sizes have decreased quite a bit. Our server was excellent. I remember when they mixed all ingredients at the table and now each course comes out half done. The amount of cheese and chocolate you receive had diminished as well. I’m not sure I will return again for a $120 meal for two. (With water no alcohol)
