Stacy was a great waitress. Food was amazing per usual and I loved the Chocolate Covered Strawberries that I got at the end. Recommend for everyone who wants a different dining experience.

Food and service was excellent. Instructions on how to cook each type of food are simple to follow. My girlfriend and I ordered the 4-course meal with the vegetarian option as the entree. The cooking style we ordered was the oil-based cooking style. Very delicious, and the portion size is very generous. We couldn't even finish everything because we ate so much of the initial cheese fondue!

One issue we had was that some minor splashing of the oil occurred when the vegetables were cooking in the oil broth. We thought it's just because the vegetables were washed beforehand or something. Just something minor to be careful about!

Otherwise, everything about the restaurant is great, and I will definitely come back to try out another cooking style.

Food was great but service was too slow and we had to ask for many items and drinks twice before getting them.

Great food as always! We really enjoyed our time there. Our waitress was not very attentive. She would disappear for awhile and then reappear and ask if we were done. Never once asked if we wanted refills.

Been here a bunch of times. This time was less enjoyable than most. Potato, Bacon and Cheese app fondue was runny, more like soup. Services was slow on getting more bread and veggies. Filet tasted off.

The service was excellent and very friendly and helpful with all the logistics. I normally don’t like to work that hard, or wait that long for each bite. But this time was different. I dipped multiple portions.
The food was excellent and fun to prepare.
We were there over two hours, but worth it.

We received amazing service by Rich & it was awesome for our previous waiter Sean to recognize our reservation info and make it a point to come say hi.

This was just a date night with my long time boyfriend, but Melting Pot offers such a greater intimate experience than the usual dinner date.

The food was excellent. I always enjoy my meal. The only thing that I would suggest is that if the potatoes could be precooked because it takes them a long time to cook, so we never get a chance to eat them with our meal.

I forgot our server's name, but it was her first day on the job, and she did an excellent job. She provided excellent customer service, which in my opinion is very important in the restaurant business. For this to be her first day, she was very knowledgeable about the food, and she helped us decide the some of our food choices. She was personable, warm, and friendly. Excellent job!!!

Good experience except for being seated across from large family with young kids. Took away from our celebration with the noise.

Love the cheese fondue - we had the alpine - would recommend. Didn’t care much for the vegetables but the bread and apples were good to dip. Tried the s’mores chocolate fondue - it was good but I prefer the milk chocolate or the yin/yang better but wanted to try something different. Service was excellent.

Lovely as always. My only complaint was the location in which they seated us, which was crammed in a small space with lots of traffic and no room for the traffic to get by. It was also right next to a large party table, so we felt like we were on “display” to the large party. But our server was wonderful. The food was delicious. The wine flights were fantastic.

The Melting Pot almost never disappoints. Every time I go, I feel like it has been too long since my last visit. My boyfriend is on the Atkins diet and if you have the willpower to resist the bread (or everyone is willing to pass on it - I'm not), it's a great meal where there is hardly anything you need to do special to make it work.

In the many years we have eaten here, I believe this is the first time we left feeling disappointed. Our waitress was inattentive, and the restaurant was not crowded. We purposely do not go here on weekends or holidays, when you could understand the reason for inattentiveness. Oh well :(

The service is SLOOOOOWWWWW. The dessert fondu section fromt he 4 course menu was the best but the entrees were underwhelming and the duck meat tasted funky. Next time i'll stick to my chinese hotpot somewhere else. But its tru - it is more about the cooking at the table and dipping experience more than the actual food - which was underwhelming

Food and atmosphere are great, it's a really nice experience. The only downside for the ladies is all the steam from the fondue pots isn't good for your hairdo.

I managed to convince my boyfriend to come back here after he felt our last visit 2 years ago was disappointing for him. This was his second time at a Melting Pot and it completely changed his perspective! He loved it, we had a wonderful time and our server, Alex, was fantastic. We agreed he was one of the best servers we’ve ever had anywhere. I can now safely say that we both highly recommend coming here.

We stayed a long time (5 hours ) and we weren’t discouraged to do so. Multiple staff checked on us throughout the time we were just talking. I went with the Delaware state teacher of the year and staff made a point to say congratulations. I ordered 6 chocolate covered strawberries and they were at the table waiting for us. Thank you for an amazing evening.
