The French break for the cheese was stale. We brought it to the attention of the manager. Otherwise everything was great
We had a great time and the food was delicious! Highly recommend.
I've worked for Melting Pot and frequent as many locations as possible and I gotta say, this one's the best. We had one of the last available reservations for MDW- 8:45pm, and being in the industry, our party of 4 was very aware of the work ahead of our server at the end of, what we assumed, was a very long work week. You can tell a lot about an establishment by how the servers respond to the pressures of their job and our server, Jake, was hands down the coolest and most easy-going server I've ever had, the manager was sweet enough to drop some Free chocolate covered strawberries at our table, which was so unbelievably generous. We were there for 2.5 hours and left with a new bestie named Jake! If you're lucky enough to get him as a server, ask him to make his special *off menu* Dark Chocolate Snickers fondue. Actually, just let him do his thing with everything you order, you will not be disappointed!
Wonderful, quiet evening with great food.
Love this place.
Little pricey but a good time...
A wonderful family night out to celebrate my son’s graduation. Staff was efficient without rushing and made you feel welcome. Definitely a splurge, but we all had a great time.
Everything was excellent
It was our 48th anniversary and I have an allergy to garlic and wine and the manager came over and made sure everything that I had did not have any garlic or wine in it very considerate very thoughtful and our waitress was very sweet and professional and she had only started working that week five stars loved the whole experience!!
My wife an I had a really enjoyable time, the waiter was over the top accommodating... the food was an is as always delicious. Would come back a thousand times. Not only for a special occasion the Melting Pot is great for any occasion or just having a meal with friends...
We’ve been coming to the melting pot for years, but this was the first time since COVID. The menu has seen a lot of changes which were welcome. What was not welcome was the diner style service we received. Granted, it was our servers second night on her own, but you would still have expected her to be better trained.
We sat down with drinks from the bar, so when we both ordered a water to start, our waitress seemed annoyed. Came back quickly enough with the waters but then disappeared for entirely too long. When she made her way back to our table, the announcement came that this was her second night on her own. Expectations now lowered, we proceeded to order. Fairly regular order for us at The melting pot. Classic cheddar fondue, a few salads and entrees directly off the menu. Nothing special, but we said we would not be having chocolate for dessert. Again, she scoffed.
Cheese course came out and was splattered all over the table. The waitress said she’s quite messy when she makes the cheese. Before the cheese was even warm enough to eat, our salads appeared. Seems like this will be a quick second course. We abandoned the cheese to eat the salads and ordered some drinks, knowing the cheese will stay warm. The waitress came back with the drinks and started to remove the cheese accompaniments. We informed her we weren’t quite done and to please leave them. That may have been a mistake. She went missing again for a good 15 minutes, but did show up with our full meal, salad plates and cheese still on the table, but no broth to cook anything in.
Cheese was cleared, along with salads and the cooking broth was brought out, ALONG WITH THE CHECK. Up to this point, I was going to give her the benefit of the doubt that she was just new, but brining the check before we even had a chance to begin dinner was the last of it. I guess no more drinks could be ordered. At least she told us there was no rush.
We did make a point to stop and tell a manager. Hope it helped.
Typically we visit another nearby location but this time we ended up here. The Melting Pot is visited by us for a number of reasons, such as for celebrating special events to everyday dinning. This time we indicated we were celebrating a birthday, which was not acknowledged in any way what so ever. Not even a “happy birthday!” or “thank you for celebrating with us!”. The food was not as flavorful as the many other countless times I’ve visited the franchise at other locations. The cheese seemed really lacking flavor. The server was kind and fun but did not offer an experience that one would expect at The Melting Pot. Just seemed a bit lackluster. I think the professionalism of all, including the hosts and management, should be improved. I will not be back as there is simply no reason to come back. I expect more of The Melting Pot. I will ensure I visit the location closest to me. While it wasn’t all bad, several small, important details of the experienced were missed, which were disappointing. As always, the food was fresh and overall delicious.
Bring your ID if you want a drink. I am 74 years old and had to show ID to be served. Probably should not have bothered. The portion of gin was minuscule. Sent it back. First time doing that. Not sure if the issue was with the server or the bartender. The server was inexperienced, so she deserves a pass.
Decided to head up here for our anniversary dinner. Best Decision ever. Did the big night out for 2. Kaitlyn was our server, with all the jokes and a wealth of knowledge about the menu. Husband said Ceaser salads are ruined for him since their Ceaser is so freaking good. Pine nuts were awesome!! Loved the Teriyaki sirloin, lobster tail, and chicken for our main course. Chose the turtle for the dessert and so worth it!! Candied pecans!! Fantastic night. Super friendly staff. Easy parking.
This is our 3rd time coming to this location and it just keeps getting better! The food was delicious, great atmosphere, Waiter Jake was DA BEST, The drinks on point! Definitely will be back again!!
The food and service were amazing! Melting pot has never let us down! Thank you!
As always a wonderful dinner. Our server Jake was great. The food was amazing.
What a great way to spend my birthday!!!!!
Great food. Great service. My boys and wife love this place.
I requested a special occasion for my fiancé and I’d anniversary and was seated in the booth next to what should have been ours. The next couple was seated and got asked about their anniversary and they said “no, they weren’t there for that”. Was looking for the romantic atmosphere with the petals for show and didn’t receive it.
First time I’ve been there, and it was amazing. Definitely will be back soon!
It was great., my wife enjoyed every minute of it thanks to our waitress hazel !
We celebrated my sons 31st birthday and last time he was there he was around 4 yes old. It was great to make new memories and the entire experience was amazing!! I wish we remembered our server’s name for she was engaging and super sweet! Can’t wait to return!!
Service was excellent. I will visit again. Wonderful experience
Jacob was such a great server! My husband and I always love our visits to the Melting Pot and celebrating my birthday there this year was a great decision!
It was clean, the waiter was awesome, the food was amazing.
Excellent all around. I couldn’t ask for anything more! Our waitress, Ava, was the absolute best! Great food, great vibe, great everything! Will definitely return!
Overall great time, went for my Nana’s birthday and it was her second time ever there and she loved it.
First time dining there and will go back.
Our waitress was wonderful and the food was delicious! Wil definitely go back again!
Very courteous staff
It’s was amazing! I will make sure to plan future events at Melting Pot
If you want to have a wonderful evening with good food you will not be disappointed here. Always a good time at The Melting Pot!
the portion sizes were really small the social distancing was too close. People were seated too close to each other. I was overall disappointed with the value. However, the servers were great & fast.
My experience was amazing! The servers and waitress were absolutely amazing
It is always great there
We really enjoyed our Valentines Day dinner. The food, drinks, and service were fantastic. The only part of the evening that we didn’t enjoy was a loud table across from us.. singing along to songs at the top of their lungs, and having loud conversations. Not really the fault of the restaurant, but I wish someone would have told them to keep it down. We weren’t the only ones they were disturbing.
Our server was new but she was great and the person helping her also did well. Will definitely return.
It's great for a fun romantic night out. Our waitress was very helpful with all of the menu options and suggestions.
I had the Land and Sea with the cast iron cooking style. This was excellent and fun! I recommend the Land and Sea because everything had flavor. The crusted sirloin, chicken, salmon and shrimp were great even without the sauces. I also had a lobster tail which was flavorful and succulent. If your a chocolate fan, the milk chocolate was so good with the strawberries, bloodies, brownies, bananas, pineapple, marshmallows, and waffle that they give to you. Overall, I had a great experience! Would go back.
This was a review of the Fondue for 2 for $90
Which included a cheese - we got spinach and artichoke and a salad - I got the house
He got the pick your own for an extra $5 which is good for those that don’t like certain things.
The service was great felt left alone enough to have a decent Valentines date and everyone was polite.
Restaurant was quiet, followed Covid restrictions, and if you get a booth they are tall enough to feel safe and not around a bunch of other people while eating.
