We took friends celebrating their anniversary to the Melting Pot for their first time. We enjoyed a cheese fondue, then an entree fondue of meats and seafood, ending the evening with a salivating chocolate fondue. A wonderful experience all around!

We had an excellent time up until we were asked to leave because they needed our table for another reservation. I have worked in the restaurant industry for years and was shocked by the request as that is not the norm.

Pleased on an average scale with our overall experience (as restaurants go), but being that we really like fruits and vegetables, we were very disappointed with how little we rec'd of fruits and veggies. For starters, our salads were delicious BUT extremely, very Small, very petite! .... certainly not what we expected for $6.
Before the salad though, we rec'd our appetizer, which consisted of lots of bread, and more bread to dip into our salty (too salty) cheese fondue.
Our proteins were fantastic, no complaints there.... lots of choices and there was plenty to eat, which made it all the more confusing as to why we didn't receive proportionately that same amount in fruits and veggies.
Our dessert, very delicious, yet not nearly enough strawberries and bananas were provided, or any other fruits to wet our appetite. We love fruit and were saddened to have ran out!! But because we rec'd so few of them, it was inevitable that we would.
Instead, we rec'd loads of fondue chocolate and marsh mellows and cakes and other inexpensive, but nonetheless, tasty goodies to dip into our delicious chocolate fondue, which small kids would enjoy at a dinner birthday party.
My wife and I eat at a lot of fine dining restaurants and this did not impress us as a fine dining experience, nor would we consider this fine dining food either, especially for the amount of money we spent, it was mediocre at best (Just average). Does not even meet our expectations for a restaurant to want to come back to. In other words, Melting Pot did not make our top 10 list of restaurants, yet had we rec'd more fruit and veggies without having to ask for them, it likely would have. Especially considering our server was professional and was considerate of our needs. Our server and other restaurant staff were great. It was the average food at fine dining prices that make this review only average, satisfactory, nothing outstanding here except the service.

Such a fun experience! The food was amazing, not a single item we prefer was below par. Our cheese fondue, entree and chocolate courses were excellent, along with our cocktails. We had 4 adults and one ten year old. He probably enjoyed it the most.

The food was quite good. The drinks not so much. 95% ice. For $10.95 for a drink to get 1 inch of liquid was a complete rip off. Needless to say I only ordered 1 and most likely WILL NOT go back.

While expensive, it was a fantastic Valentine's treat for our family! They DO have a kids menu for the entrees (but just the entrees, kids are just a person/serving of cheese and/or chocolate, though they let us order fewer than we had at the table), which was exceedingly helpful!
Our server was amazing, and every server we met was on top of their game and happy to help.

The melting pot has great food! I loved the experience of the different fondues. My only problems with the experience were (1) the location of our booth was right around the corner from the kitchen, so there were many servers coming past our table the whole visit. (2) the menu was difficult to understand and it was unclear which options we could take or leave. I had to read the menu like 4 times before I just made a decision and decided to see what happens. (3) the price point is outrageously high for the food you get. It was delicious and a fun experience, but I think it could cost about half that amount and still be a high end price point.

We had a great time on our date night. We did the 4 course meal it was plenty of food. Our waiter was very helpful and all his recommendations were great. All the food was amazing. Plan on a long meal. It took 2 hours for us but it was perfect date meal. Not hurried but also not waiting a long time for your food. There was always something on the table. It was $120 out the door for two of us but for the experience it was worth it. Don’t pass up on the chocolate!

Our waiter was rushed/rushed us and brought the wrong food for one of the party. Seemed annoyed when we asked for more sauces, and cheese dippers because we ran out before the cheese was gone. Brought the normal amounts of things for 2 people but we were a party of 4. Every time I go, I always wish there was a little more privacy for the experience.

I would and would not recommend Melting Pot. If you go there and expect to spend over $300 (party of 6), you don't expect to sit where you can feel the cold air come in, have people standing right next to your table as they wait for theirs and be within arms reach of the back side of the bar complete with trash cans and servers running back and forth right next to you. You also get tired of hearing "And what are you celebrating?" as the host walks by your table many, many times.

We have dined at The Melting Pot numerous times, and love visiting again for special occasions. Unfortunately, at this visit my husband became sick, and was not able to continue eating. The waiter was very accommodating, bringing us a bill for what had been served, and no guilt for having to leave early. We'll be back for sure, and hopefully everyone is feeling well!
