Fondue
Our spot in Schaumburg brings the cook to Cook County. The Melting Pot is your destination when you want to sit in a fine dining fondue restaurant that encourages diners of any age to play with their food. Succulent skewers, seasoned vegetables, homespun dressings, fresh seafood—our entrées aim to keep the conversation lively and the spirits high. It goes without saying that romantic dining isn’t complete without one of our famous fondues, so make sure to order one for the table. Indulge in decadent chocolates and artisan cheeses with a perfectly paired glass of wine nearby. And most importantly, drop by any time of the year. The rich aroma floating through the air isn’t limited to holidays and birthdays, so treat your special someone to a spontaneous night on the town and celebrate the everyday with us.

Service was a little slow. They were out of vegan cheese. Our waiter was so nice. Everything just took so long. He apologized so much and it wasn’t his fault. Food was good though and fun overall

Fondue is a fun and good meal. The different sauces go well with the meal. Cheese and chocolate are the best!

We have been to this restaurant many times, always very pleased. I think we had a newer server, so the service we received was not up to par. Otherwise, we enjoyed our dinner tremendously.

nice server/ nice manager. i feel that it is a bit complicated to order at fondue restaurants. not crowded when we were there. i enjoy Gejas cafe in Chicago more, but this was certainly adequate.

Ladies night was a blast. Good deal with affordable cocktail and three different pots (with the additional fee).

We haven't been to the Melting Pot in decades. Tried it for dinner on Friday night and enjoyed the food and service. The pricing of the entrees is a bit high considering that we were cooking our entree. Overall, it was a good experience and would recommend it for a change of pace.

Our head server was great. The food was great. However, the bus people (table clearers) were NOT. They were extremely unfriendly and a bit annoying: walking to and from like vultures. The heavy traffic from the table clearers was obnoxious and distracting, lightly ruining the ambiance and experience. Additionally, The one young man reached out his hand for my glass while I was still drinking from it, while the young lady grabbed my half-empty cup off of the table without asking.

I was disappointed that we had a child with us, and there is a children’s menu, you’ll still be charged for the cheese, salad, and dessert for them (an additional $26). It wasn’t mentioned before. The 2 adults ordered the 4 course dinner that came with salad, cheese, and dessert. I won’t be returning. Poor communication from the wait staff.

It’s so much more than dining! It’s an experience altogether. We went there for my wife’s 25th birthday, and they made it special with candle light and rose petals. Also, gave us a private table with nice setup. The staff are courteous and helpful. Food was yummy and perfect quantity. Never miss the Chocolate Fondue! Loved the Flaming Turtle 😍 Definitely coming back!

I had a reservation, which is not needed because the place is empty. It looks like it might have been a nice place when it was new, but now it’s a dirty run down shell of that. We showed up early for our reservation, maybe 10 min early. We were seated right away. It took 10-15 min to get a drink, and a full 50 minutes till we started eating. I say again, the place was mostly empty. The food was okay, but for what they charge worth maybe half of what we paid. Never again. This place is on my forever NO LIST. Summary: 50 min to get food that we had to cook ourselves. Oh, $11 for a drink too. Seriously, go anywhere else. My wife said she would have been happier with a hot dog.

Service was outstanding. Large, loud group next to us which made it difficult to have conversation at times. The experience is very overpriced.

Decor is old and dingy. Fondue needs clean up between courses. Service barely cleared dishes on an already crowded table. Restaurant was almost empty yet svc was very slow.
