We had excellent service, our server was attentive, and gave us recommendations when we had a few questions. We love this location of The Melting Pot! It's so peaceful and enjoyable!

The food is always outstanding at the Melting Pot Wilmington. Had their limited edition award winning cheese. It was fabulous! Love the Yin & Yan martini too.

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.

We have been here several times and always really enjoy it. Melting Pot is such a great night out. It’s not a rushed dinner, the food is great, the service is always wonderful, and they have really good drinks. It’s perfect for a date night.

The Melting Pot is our traditional spot for my daughter's birthday dinner. Classic cheddar fondue to start, bouillon broth with meat and seafood for main course, and milk chocolate fondue for dessert. Try the duck and teriyaki steak, both very tasty. The dessert dippers came with a birthday candle. (They provide other celebration options for an additional cost.) Food was great as always, but a service was unusually slow.

Jaime, our server, was outstanding. She stayed on top of everything while training a new hire. The manager stopped by to check on us. The food was outstanding. Love the Melting Pot. Pricey so we only go on special occasions. They support St. Jude’s which is important to me as a cancer survivor. Highly recommend!

Not a happy customer. The food and service was great but pricey for what you get. The entertainment started when the bill came: the bill we received at the table was 95.00 we will call it bill #1, we asked the waitress if they offered a military discount, she said Yes, she took bill #1 and our debit card with her, she returned with bill # 2 and bill # 3. Bill number # 2 had a higher price than bill # 1, bill #3 that came along with bill #2 showed the military discount but yet showed the same total as bill #1. If they really didn't honor military discount, they should have just said No. We do applauded them for creative check manipulation. We will never come back again and will tell as many people as possible. We were celebrating our 34th wedding anniversary and this situation was very disappointing.

I have been here a few different times. However, for some reason the waitress was not very helpful. When we go to dessert she was just doing a white chocolate and a milk chocolate. With all the options like Smores, bananas foster, yin and yang etc. She did not give us options she was just making it plain. There were no marshmallows to dip in the chocolate. There was hardly any vegetables to go with our meat. Lots of mushrooms, hardly any broccoli or potatoes. I really enjoy the fondue normally. I hope to come back, but at the same time for all the money you pay here they do not seem to give you quite the amount of food one would expect for the price you pay. And as I said the service could have been better, more friendly and helpful with the menu and options. As I said previously I have eaten here before and enjoyed the portions and the helpful service, this was just not one of those times.
