Server was extremely slow & inattentive. It took us over 2 & 1/2 hours for us to complete our meal. Couple who got seated after us were done & paid check before we even had our entree course cleared let alone started our chocolate fondue.

Hadn't been to Melting Pot in awhile, decided to try it for my birthday, noting that on the reservation. Upon arrival, the hostess sat us for the 4pm seating. Another family of 4 was placed near the window, we were in the middle and then another family of 4 was placed right behind us. That was a bit annoying since the restaurant was empty. Our waitress made a lot of small talk, which we found to be unnecessary (pets names, etc) We also overheard the manager at another table giving an interview to a prospective waitress and it was not as enjoyable hearing about the job practices there while dining.
The cheese course was fine but the ceasar salad dressing lacked any kind of flavor. It was bland. The dinner course was good, I do not recommend the potstickers as they fell apart in the pot. As a waitress that could have been pointed out and I would have chosen another protein. The chocolate course was delicious and they brought out a plate that said happy birthday with a small piece of pound cake.
Because the manager was giving an interview, I overheard her say for anniversaries and birthdays we do candles, flowers and balloons. Well, it was noted on my open table reservation and there was no mention of that on our table. If I hadn't overheard or saw other tables with such decorations I would not have minded. It was only when I mentioned to the waitress it was my birthday was it acknowledged.
Food was good - company was great - and I enjoyed my birthday.

In the future, I would choose a different spot to celebrate.

We love the melting pot and were really looking forward to it for Father’s Day, particularly the duck on the Pacific Rim dinner. Unfortunately after we ordered we were notified that they were out of the duck. Then we ordered the bananas foster fondue for our dessert and they were out of that as well. Everything we had was delicious, but it was very disappointing that they were out of both of those items. We upgraded to the filet mignon instead of the steak that came with it, but were still charged the extra charge for the upgrade even though they were out of the duck.

Our server was very nice , however we kept seeing him wiping sweat off his face with his hand, and then using that hand to serve the food.

Our server Jackie was phenomenal. Helped us figure out what to order when we were a bit confused. She was great with my boys age 11 and 18. Very friendly and knowledgeable. She was so patient with us as well as we took a bit long to order. That was very much appreciated.

Had called after reservation was made to see if they could accommodate 2 more, they said they couldn’t. Upon arrival, restaurant was almost totally empty and 2 more could easily have sat at our table. At first I thought it was due to Covid capacity restrictions but no one was there! Then, after choosing our menu selections the waiter returned to tell us they no longer had one of our items on the menu. So we were out of luck there as well. Ask to sit away from service areas as they tend to be quite noisy. Waiter was very nice at least.

I have been wanting to try melting pot for a while now. When I excitedly made reservations to finally try it I was expecting much more. My boyfriend and I were browsing the menu and were looking forward to trying specific items that were on the menu. Half of the items we were planning on ordering were supposedly out of stock. If we knew this we would have not come. The items should not have been offered to us or been on the menu if they were not available. Especially because it was restaurant week, the restaurant should have been prepared to suit their customers needs and have those limited items that were listed for us to choose from.

I received an email for a special they were having. Went the very next day with a reservation mentioning the special and they said they were no longer honoring it, even though I showed the email to them and it was within the date range. They had a “they could care less attitude” we left, will not be back.
