The Melting Pot has often been a go-to place for special occasions. Typically the service has been very good , however this last visit was terrible. Perhaps they were short staffed, but we waited 30 minutes after being seated before the first course was brought out. There was also an uncomfortable lag time between every course. We enjoy the fact that it is intentionally a slow dining experience, allowing for good conversation with good food. We left feeling very frustrated by the extended waits. The server was occassionally friendly and informative, but generally seemed short and rushed. The temperatures of the cooking medium was barely warm for the cheese and desert course making the food less appealing than normal. Overall food quality was good, but a very disappointing experience.

Food was great, a little pricey, the service started out good but seem like we were rushed. There were times that the manager came to take care of us. I don't know if the server had to many tables or what. We felt like we were being rushed.

Nice experience however they should offer additional sides to go with the main meal such as rice... love how the event was for my wife birthday and the staff had a card on the table! Very thoughtful also our table was prepared with the additional order placed when I reserved.

Great atmosphere and our server was fantastic. It was our first time there and she made the menu easy to understand. She even made recommendations and answered all of my many questions. The food was great. At first we thought we weren’t getting much food but by the time we left we had to be rolled out of the restaurant.

My husband and I ate here for a date night. I had not been for years and he was a newbie at fondue. We had an amazing time, our server was Laura and she was amazing. She explained everything to us and was funny and engaging. She was very attentive to our needs and extremely knowledgeable when it came to the menu. I would go back again and would ask for Laura!

We haven't been to the Melting Pot in over 10 years and found that it is better than we even remember. We celebrated our 15 year anniversary at the Melting Pot and brought our 2 children (Ages 10 and 8) and it was perfect. Great food and amazing food. Perfect for a romantic dinner, or a family outing. The menu prices were very reasonable for this type of dinner event. Looking forward to going back for our next celebration.

Took three generations there.
Cheese fondue is very good.
The salad we had was very nice, but the meats were not so good for the main course.
Had the broth for cooking but would not do so again.
Chocolate fondue very good but skip the rice krispy cake pieces and the COLD, OLD waffle pieces. Yuk!!
Go for the cheese and the chocolate and forget the rest!
Not cheap!

Its a fun place if you like fondue. The service was great, but its really over priced. REALLY overpriced. And vegetarian options are inpossible because you're cooking your vegetables in the same pot your group is cooking their meat and fish.

the experience you get with the fine cut of meats, fish, vegetables for fondue are amazing. By the time you get to the wonderful desert, you find creative ways to keep eating. It was relaxing and extremely pleasant cuisine experience!

I haven't been to The Melting Pot in many years and have been wanting to go for a couple months, but haven't had the money; so, a few of my friends gave me gift cards and made a reservation for me and my husband. We had so much fun and the food was as good as I remembered! I will definitely be wanting to go back for my next special occasion!

Our waitress was awesome. She was new, so being experienced customers we had no problem being her guinea pigs. The table next to us was larger and the waitress was very loud and obnoxious. Overall a nice dinner.

We have been going to the Wilmington Melting Pot for years now. The staff is always friendly and accommodating . The food is always good. Its a fun night out with your friends or for a special birthday/anniversary dinner. I have been to several Melting Pot locations but this one by far has been my favorite.
