The Melting Pot - Wilmington DE Ratings and Reviews
Celebrated my birthday there. Absolutely wonderful in every respect! The service was unbelievable especially considering how many people were there. And to top that off you returned my husband's credit card which my husband had forgotten. And of course the food was wonderful. Cannot wait to come back!
Greeted quickly and seated immediately. Waitress very knowledgeable. Good selection. Interesting and entertaining fare. Be prepared though that your group will need to pick same spices or cheese dip for the table. Everyone picks their own meats but the spices in the pot is shared with everyone at the table.
Overall a great experience
We have not been to Melting Pot in 15 yrs. We took our kids for the first time and we were all disappointed. Food portion were so much smaller and prices were higher. The dessert portions were sliced into such small bites that it would break upon dipping in the chocolate. Even our kids were not impressed with the restaurant. We will not be back at all.
I took my boyfriend for his birthday, this was our second time here. We loved it just as much as the first! Our waiters have been great and so has the food. It's a different experience that we think is fun and different from a sit down meal. It's a bit pricey but worth it once in a while.
We loved all 3 courses of fondue & our server was great, but we were stuck in the back in a very awkward corner table where you had to scoot all along the table length to get to the other end of the table. We also had to wait 15 minutes after our reservation time,but we used that time to figure out what we wanted to order. It was a fun night out to catch up with my mom.
I have been to the Melting Pot several times before, and not once have they ever let me down. I go to the Melting Pot once a year on a very special occasion. Yes, the food is pricey, but the little bit of extra money is worth it. It is a great place to dine, have a great time, and you will never leave hungry.
We have always enjoyed eating @ The Melting Pot. Though none are in our neighborhood, we don't mind driving the 45 min. to the nearest one.The food is fresh & plentiful,& they're never "out" of items on the menu. We also always bring home at least 2 bottles of the Garlic & Wine Seasoning. We put it on just about everything .
My friends treated me to a birthday dinner at the Melting Pot, and we had such a great time that night that we didn’t even realize three hours had gone by, and that it was past closing! Yes, we were THAT party. Anyway, we had great service and a wonderful time.
We had a new server and was a little upset that when she spilled our $20 daiquiri on us that she didn’t refund nor did she bring a new one she let it sit on the table. There was also a 16th birthday party and they were extremely loud. Our reservation was for 7pm and in a restaurant like this, the staff should have done something about it.
Very disappointed they had to remake our cheese fondue because there was hair in it and then the second pot they over did the garlic and it was all you could taste. Once we got to the meat course the broth used to cook in was way over seasoned that all you tasted was seasoning the meat flavor was lost. The only good part of our meal was the chocolate fondue which was amazing. They did compensate us slightly by taking $50 off our check but our dinner still cost us over $150 for something that was horrible and very disappointing on our anniversary.
Fun atmosphere for a date night. Lighting is nicely done: it's not overly bright but light enough to always see what you're cooking. The decor and lighting creates a nice evening ambience. Love that you are not pressured to get in, dine, and get out. On the contrary, the experience takes time and enjoying is the point. I had a four course meal and was there for over two hours. The food is quality and well portioned between fondue and dippers. The dipping selection with my cheese was a little strangely paired (apples and raw veggies), but the bread varieties are good. The meats are delicious and the desert selections are well varied. I do wish you could cook more meat at once - two skewers and 1-2.5 minutes per piece is a bit tedious. The servers are out of necessity coming and going with courses a lot, but it doesn't feel overly intrusive. The staff here were great: friendly and wanted you to have a nice experience. They also have a bit more hands on work than your typical server, since they have to be knowledgeable about how to cook different foods, temperatures, how to operate the stovetop... Makes you appreciate their contribution to your dining experience. The cost is barely more than you would spend at any nice restaurant, but the experience is unique.
This was for my wife’s birthday dinner. Ask specially asked for a nice private booth to enjoy our night out. We were placed in a smaller the normal table in the corner that had an overly brigh table light shining in your face. The waitess said yeah this light is a common problem and tried to dim it but couldn’t because the entire section had to be dimmed as well. It was busy although we we seated at 7:35. We received our first drink at 8:45. An hour and ten minute no food or bread, nothing for 1:10 minutes. After that. The food was ok and were told if we order the 4 course meal it is better but we didn’t even need the salads. Waitress, don’t worry I’ll order it to go for you and you can take it home. Never brought our salads out with the bill and left with no salads. Overall, food was avaerage at best, wine menu sub par and they had 3 or 4 good beers to choose from but the service was horrible. I would not recommend this place and won’t be going be going back.
We met for a birthday dinner and had such a nice time. Our waiter was awesome - very attentive and also funny. They had some specials that were great, and our waiter had some great suggestions for us as well. The pacing of the meal was wonderful - especially for a nice night out when you don't want to feel rushed. Everything was wonderful, the prices are really reasonable for what you're getting, and we had a great time. We'll definitely be back soon.
