The Melting Pot - Wilmington DE Ratings and Reviews
I thought it was funny I had written a review for The Melting Pot almost 4 years ago to this day. Now we've been married and looks like not much has changed. We still love the cheese fondue (this time had the option to add meats - yum) and again opted for the Bananas Foster dessert fondue. The only thing different this time around was the lobster. It was chewy and flavorless and the next time we go I won't be choosing it. Here's to more memories!
food was excellent, service was excellent. atmosphere was excellent. only bad was reservation was not honored on time. three parties with same time or later that checked in after us were seated before us. when greeter was asked instead of admitting she maide a mistame(which would have been accepted because mistakes happen) flat out lies to my face and states people had 645 reservations. we heard each party say they had 700 or 730 reservations so was very displeased. All it would have took was greeter saying I made a honest mistake and everything would have been great but I cannot stand being lied to.
We have been here several times and always enjoy it. We were sat next to a group of people that constantly were bad mouthing the server when they weren't there. Somewhat took away from the romance. All they seemed to do was complain. This is not the fault of the restaurant, I honestly feel horrible that you have to deal with people like that.
Our server was nice as always and the food excellent. My wife and I try to come here a couple times a year as its her favorite.
The vegetarian entree was horrible. The food is typically very good, but not this entree. The meatballs, artichoke and tofu was not edible. The asparagus and pasta was fine. I was very disappointed in the vegetarian options and feel the Melting Pot need to completely re-vamp those options.
Our server exceeded our expectations! Very friendly, professional, and went above and beyond to ensure our dinner was great. The food was amazing as always. The hostess who sat us, on the other hand, wasn’t so friendly. Perhaps she was just having a bad day, but she made a production out of us being several minutes late even after I called ahead of time to inform them of our tardiness. “Well, you’re reservation was at 7:45 and it is now 8:07...”, she said without a smile as she rolled her eyes when looking at the reservation. I informed her that I called and they said it would be okay. I told her that we can definitely wait for another table if we have to because we were late- we totally understood if our tardiness threw reservations off. She then sat us but still didn’t smile.
Everytime I go, my experience is amazing. I celebrated my mom's birthday, business dinner with my boss and his wife, dates with my girlfriend and the best experience was my first time on Valentine's day last year 2017. I will recommend this place to anyone. It's by far my favorite restaurant to go to.
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.
