i took my mother, my grandmother & my sister to celebrate Mother’s day. it was my mother’s & grandmother’s first time dining here, and i wanted them to have the full experience.
i made the reservation a month in advance and requested a booth with Syed as our server and ended up not having either.
our server was Sean & overall it wasn’t a terrible experience, i was a little disappointed as a frequent guest & former employee that our requests were unable to be fulfilled.
We made Mother's Day reservations few weeks ago and had choice when booking to sit inside, outside, or at high top table. Thankfully I chose inside seating as it was a miserable, rainy, freezing cold Sun in May! When we arrived, the hostess showed us to our table - which was in the "outdoor" area. I explained to her we actually requested indoor seating. She said she didn't see that, and seemed as if she didn't believe me. She said we would have to go back and wait probably 30-60 mins for indoor seating to open up...HUH? Wouldn't be such a big deal, but was pouring rain, very cold day and hostess did absolutely NOTHING to try to accommodate or even check on it for us. While they had heaters that warm the area, water was running under the tented outdoor cover on the floor under our feet! And also being seating on side by road, every car that drove caused more cold air and water to blow in! NOT a great way to start my Mother's Day experience I had been really looking forward to, and the hostess neither apologized or seemed to care. We chose to stay put as it was very crowded and busy, and server in the area, Cara, seemed like she was going to be phenomenal. Cara didn't disappoint us, and made our experience fun, enjoyable and accommodated us as much as possible. She was very attentive to ALL the tables she was servicing and turned heaters on/off for us, and just went above and beyond to make my Mother's Day and our meal the best possible, even if our seating choice didn't happen. She was THE best, and just amazing! I really appreciated her wanting to make me happy and treat us special. She was very personable and kind and even brought my younger daughter pink fondue forks...so sweet! The pre-set Mother's Day menu selection was good, and we LOVED the cheese and dessert best as always! My husband hates paying the high price to "cook his own food" (TRUE! LOL!) so we only come every few years, but we all enjoyed it even more than usual, thanks to Cara!
Server was awesome! She was great with my kids!
We had a table of 4 adults and a 4 and 8 year old for Mother’s Day. We had an early reservation at 11:15 which was perfect because it was a 3 hour brunch. Each course was beautifully presented. The service was attentive. My favorite course was the chocolate fondue for dessert. If I go back I would probably skip the meat course and just do the cheese and chocolate courses.
Atmosphere was awesome for a Saturday night in Pittsburgh. Food was wonderful and service by Jesse was exemplary!
Great for birthdays
Always a favorite for birthdays!
Great venue and experience! Service was amazing.
We have been at the restaurant in the past but this time had a wonderful waitress who really explained the menu and our options - options we never knew we had in the past. It enhanced our meal and great appreciated that. I hope they train other servers to be as complete with their description of the menu.
It was wonderful! Patrick, our waiter, did a fantastic job keeping us informed about the menu! We were there with a group od 14year olds to celebrate birthday! Patrick was great keeping track or the “girl’s table” and us! Thank you!
Fantastic experience - the staff was knowledgeable and made great suggestions on each course. The loaded baked potato cheese was incredible.
Ian our server was AMAZING!
Fantastic service celebrating our engagement. We loved the special touches they pulled off to make us feel special.
We had an excellent time at the melting pot! Our server Brianna was so friendly and helpful. We were in the cutest booth and even got a little cake to celebrate our anniversary! The food was also great.
Gabby was fantastic, and endless fondue is always a great deal.
Great service. Social distancing, sanitation, reservations, mask usage, etc was all adhered to. Very glad we went.
Our electricity went out at our table. They sent 3 different people over to trouble shoot in her middle of our dinner be just moving us. We had to ask to be moved. Very disappointed this time.
Tonight's experience was excellent as always. Food was top notch as was the service from Sarah. Birthday berries were delicious too!
Eddie is the best server/manager. Made our experience even better.
The service was incredible! They explained everything to us step by step and make great recommendations on what to order! Will definitely be returning soon.
Awesome 16th birthday with friends. So un to share!!!
Service was fabulous! It is nice to have a server who is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable in what can be the unknown.
Food was great as always. Worth every penny
Excellent experience. Service was prompt and attentive. Food was great. You are your own chef here.
Everything was great but just felt like spending that much money you should get a little more food.. nothing wrong with anything, it was all delicious! Just more for your money I think.
Excellent service fast and great environment.
Our waiter was wonderful
Excellent food and service
Very nice atmosphere and attentive, friendly staff
Overall, had a great experience. The compromise lies in where we were seated. Upstairs, right opposite a storage room and the kitchen. A minor disappointment, but would ask to be reseated in the future.
Great as always!
Amazing meal as always. My kids had an amazing time. Our waiter Ian was super duper friendly! The kids absolutely loved him!
The Melting Pot is by far my favorite restaurant to go to! The service there is always top notch and the management are always friendly and willing to help no matter what! Will definitely be coming back over and over again!
A must go when in Pittsburgh if you’re looking for great food and a great experience!
Garrett was awesome. He made the experience such a joy. He was super knowledgeable about the process and food selections. He navigated us through the whole event. He talked about flavor profiles, Justin Bieber, add ons and so much more. Great time!!!
Amazing service and helpful waiter to our questions
Food and service was great!
We are so happy you chose to dine with us and are very glad to hear that you enjoyed both the food and service. Please join us again in the future.
Great from start to finish. Fresh food and great service.
Always delicious, staff is very attentive and efficient.
If you haven’t been and get the chance, GO!!!!
Our server was Alex, amazing, on point, energetic, and all-around awesome. We also interacted with Amanda, equally as amazing. Even the gentleman who bussed our table was personable and a pleasure to deal with.
From start to finish an A+ experience!
Wow! We appreciate you sharing this experience with us! We are happy to have delighted you. -Chris M - Owner
