After some confusion on our groups part as to how the fondue worked we all were very happy with the food selections, staff and restaurant overall. We all did the four course meal and were all happy. Our group has several vegetarians and picky eaters, all were able to find something to enjoy.

We had excellent service from Sage today. She was super friendly with our group and made a great first impression as we have not had her as our server in the past. Food was excellent and we all appreciated the lunch special that was suggested as we were all looking to eat a bit lighter than our normal MP choices.

Melting pot is an old standard for us, and we love it. The new location is much more noisy, and the ambiance isn't a nice. Much more open, industrial modern with TVs visible from most of the dining space. Not as much a romantic dinner as it used to be.

Delicious food. We got the classic 4 course meal. For the cooking we got the Mojo and the veggie bouillon. I suggest getting the ying yang martini as well.

This was my first time at Melting Pot. I enjoyed my experience. My favorites where the spinach & artichoke cheese, teriyaki marinated steak, and s’mores chocolate with fruit.

Our experience was great. Good fondue as well as light portions. It’s nice because you don’t feel too full after a 3 course meal. The environment and vibe was fantastic and lively. I recommend this restaurant for people wanting to try something different.

The service was absolutely terrible after having a large party reserved for over a week and all final orders in 3 days prior. Did not get seated on time and then had to move tables once sat. There were a few people in the party that had never been there before and I had to ask the manager to tell them cooking instructions due to the fact we get raw food first, 15 minutes later the waitress asked us if she needs to explain to us any cooking instructions? No ma’am we have been eating for the last 15 minutes. Just an overall awful experience at this new location the atmosphere is completely chaotic.

1st Melting Pot experience. Went all out with the romance package. We had so much fun!!! Food was incredible! Loved the 4 course entre, cheese fondue was amazing. Chocolate fondue was amazing. Everything was just absolutely amazing. I went in to the night knowing it was going to be expensive and kept the price out of mind. Completely incredible night and definitely will be back!!

Miranda was a fantastic server and really made our evening! She was right on top of everything and made sure we always were taken care of, even when it was pretty busy with Endless Fondue.

The only downside is the restaurant has lost all of its former charm, and the new space is very modern and unappealing. There are strange tables with armchairs and the entire restaurant lacks the intimacy they once had. Due to that change when they moved, it’s no longer a “date”’place for me; but has morphed into a “friends”place.

I miss the privacy of the old restaurant. The open concept is one I do not enjoy. The restaurant was busy, our service was not what we used to get at the old restaurant.

Went there for Wife's Birthday. Very good experience overall. The server Gabby was outstanding and made us very comfortable with the menu and the 4 course options. Cheese Fondue and Chocolate fondue was the highlight of our night. Wish there were more options in cooking sauce.

After a few “bad” experiences at the melting pot, I can say that our visit on September 8th was amazing. Dallas was our server and I wish I could’ve given her $1 million tip. She explained everything to us and was the most knowledgeable server I have ever had at the melting pot. The food was excellent, as always. I can tell you now, when I make another reservation at the melting pot I will be requesting Dallas as my server!

It is a dining experience. Not a place to go if you don't have a lot of time. The waiter was wonderful and the food was good. My only complaint is they gave too many mushrooms. In the future I would ask for broccoli and zucchini, but that is my preference. I was a fun and good experience.
