The whole process takes a long time. Good to catch up with friends or family I guess. Neat experience and good food, but a bit expensive especially considering portion size.
We always love to come here. This was the first time we ate outside. It was fine but small gnats are a bit of a problem. Maybe something can be done about that??? Otherwise is was wonderful as always.
The food was excellent and we tried different combinations of cheese fondue, salad and chocolate. Our server was one of the most outstanding people. Leine was fun, talkative and extremely attentive. We would definitely try to ask for her again. It was a great Father's Day meal.
Excellent dinner and service. The staff were super friendly and on their A game as always! We love our local MP Team!
Meal was amazing! It was my Boyfriends birthday and the staff really made it awesome for us. We had a fantastic server, very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a Shellfish allergy at our table and she was so helpful in making sure we were accommodated on that.
She also had great drink recommendations, we enjoyed everything we had.
Food was excellent and the service was just as good! Very unique place to eat. Would definitely recommend to anyone and will certainly be going back!
Very nice and romantic, very unique experience. I definitely will be coming back !
The food was awesome and we loved our server. She didn’t come back too often so we were really able to enjoy each other’s company.
We love the melting pot and decided to take our kids for the first time to celebrate the last day of school. We certainly lucked out with our server Alex. We were blown away by the service, enthusiasm, and patience with three kids at the table that had never been there. We will absolutely be requesting him in the future. Outstanding.
Everything was good but it was very busy.
The service was slow, probably because the waiter had so many tables.
WOW what a difference! The Melting Pot Pittsburgh moved from it's old location to a much more open and spacious location across the street. New menu offerings, much more predictable heating elements. Ian was going above and beyond to make sure our experience met the expectations, and we can't wait to return!
Alpine cheese fondue recipe has changed. Was not flavorful Got the dinner for 2 and the pricing on the menu was a bait and switch.
We had an awesome time! Our server was so kind and attentive!
I took my parents for their first fondue experience. The server was phenomenal and made it a true experience for all of us!
Wonderful way to top off an experience of downtown Pittsburgh when my daughter came to visit for the first time after a move from Texas!
Overall decent experience. Fondue packages should be more clear.
My daughter and I decided to have a girls night out. Our server Alex was one of a kind! He was friendly, fun and never missed a beat! We told him my daughter graduated from elementary school today and he made the night extra special. Also it was soo nice to see that you didn’t seem short staff and busy. Thank you Alex for a memorable night!
Very good service and great atmosphere
Thank you for the positive review of both our service and atmosphere. We take pride in providing out guest with the perfect night out and are glad to hear that you enjoyed.
This was our first time at the new location. It wasn’t as intimate as the old place which I missed. Our table was in the middle of everyone. However the waiter was incredible! Not sure if it is because of covid...but they didn’t make the stuff in front of us like they used to. I will still go back! It’s an awesome experience!
Thank you for dining with us at our new location. We do agree that the atmosphere is much more energetic, but also wanted to let you know that we still have intimate areas if you are looking for something a bit more quiet. We appreciate that you enjoy the fondue experience and our service and hopefully you will return again soon.
Celebrating a 40th anniversary! Delicious as always!
Happy Anniversary! Cheers to 40 years and we are honored to have been able to serve you on such a special occasion.
Loved the service food and I’ll ambience. Thank you!
Thank you for dining with us and we hope you will come back soon!
I took my two daughters to celebrate my older one turning 22. Everything was great - food, service , atmosphere. We only ordered 1 drink each and each got a main entree and chocolate fondue for desert. No salads or appetizers and the bill was $175! The melting pot is great but for special occasions only as I would never normally spend this much going out to eat. My girls loved it though so it was worth it!
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to host your daughters birthday and we are thrilled to read that everything was great.
Excellent food, excellent service. Always a good experience! Tonight we had a different server than our typical server and he was also training a new team member. Both servers were working hard and did a wonderful job. Would definitely appreciate their service again.
We pride ourselves on offering our guest exceptional service and thank you for noticing the effort. Thank you for the positive review and we will share your thoughts with our staff.
Very lovely. Our server was very patient, humorous, and could explain this process to my 80 year old grandparents. Would come back
It was good loved the chocolate fondue
The chocolate is always the star of the show and certainly our most requested fondue. We hope you will choose to dine with us again in the future.
Our experience at The Melting Pot was wonderful. It always feels like a VIP experience and the food is decadent and delicious.
Thanks for dining with us and the wonderful review. We strive to make all of our guest feel like VIPs and were thrilled to read that your experience met this goal.
Delicious food. Good service. Friendly employees. I will be back.
Thank you for choosing to dine with us recently. We look forward to seeing you again in the future.
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!
Thank you for dining with us on Mother's Day. We are sorry to read that there was some confusion with your seating, but also very pleased to hear how Cara's service was more that superb and made for an enjoyable experience. We will be sure to share your review with our entire service team and let Cara know what a fantastic job she did. Your honest feedback is appreciated and we will look into ways we can improve.
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.
Thank you for joining us on Mother's Day. We are happy to read that you group enjoyed themselves and the chocolate fondue was hit. We look forward to serving you again.
Atmosphere was awesome for a Saturday night in Pittsburgh. Food was wonderful and service by Jesse was exemplary!
This is amazing to read and we are so happy that your experience was wonderful. We will share your review with Jesse and commend him for a job well done. Thank you for noticing and providing such positive feedback.

Our waitress was amazing! So was the food! Definitely will be coming here again
We cannot wait to serve you again soon! Thanks for joining us recently and for the positive review.
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.
We are thrilled to read your review and will be sure to share this with our service team. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent visit and we hope to see you again soon.
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!
We are so very happy to hear that your birthday celebration was a wonderful experience. Thank you for choosing us to host your event and we will be sure to pass along your review to Patrick!
