We had the best time. Thank you Christian. Your help deciding what to order was perfect
Great food. Ask for Kyle if you go there he is amazing and hardworking
We did not have a very good experience this time around. Our cheese course was watery with a lot of lumps. Everything felt rushed as they brought out our cooking pot before we even got our salads. Then once we put food into the cooking pot the temperature was so low that it did not cook it. Our server seemed incompetent and frazzled, but she was nice enough. We were not visited by a manager or anyone who seemed to care about how our experience was going. Overall, it was not the night we have come to expect or wanted.
It was a Sunday night and quiet. It was my first time to a fondue place. I loved it. The server was excellent. She was patient with me as she was explaining the menu. They have a very flexible menu with very good food. The chocolate fondue dessert was amazing and worth going just for that. You will not leave hungry. This is a great place to meet up with friends and spend some time chatting and eating. You gotta try the Melting pot - you wont be disappointed.
Menu was rather confusing as some items needed explanation, portions small, sauces small, and cooking broth very small amount.
We had Christian for our waiter the other night and he was just fantastic. He would always check on us to make sure we had everything and even came back to double check on something he thought he had forgotten but didn't . Such a personable server.
Great food. Grilling was fun!
Service was terrific, as usual!
Great wait staff and a fun experience with lots of options on the menu.
This was my first visit. Food was good; service terrific. A little pricey for 2 people but we were both stuffed when we left. Definitely fun and different. Would go back again.
My wife and I visit this restaurant often. The staff is ALWAYS friendly, and the food is always great. When we come, we feel like we are visiting family. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Chuck our server was great, the food was amazing but he made the experience 100% better. He interacted with our kids great and made us laugh but also explained everything clearly and made sure we were taken care of
Chuck was great!!!
We love the Melting Pot! The service is always great! The food was amazing as always!
Food was great as always but service was aweful. The service was aweful at refilling drinks and took 30 mins before we got something he forgot. He wasn’t even the one to bring what he forgot we were finally able to flag down another server and they brought us the forgotten food.
We celebrated our anniversary at the Melting Pot. I requested the rose petals and candles on the table and it turned out great. It's a wonderful place to go for a special occasion. I have also been there for girls'night, which was fabulous as well. This is not the place to go if you're in a hurry. This is a take your time and enjoy the company and the moment kind of place. Overall, fantastic food, excellent wine, great service, and a lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be back!
Our visit was great! Neither of us had eaten fondue in a long time and this was delicious. Our server, Hannah, was the best.
Our server Chuck was amazing.. Highly recommend this to anybody! request Chuck!
Everything was delicious. The service was a little slow, but it was good to spread out the meal and let the food settle.
great time! We went with a group og ten for my daughters 14th birthday we had some who have never done fondue...we all had a blast! Our waiter made it a really great time!
When you first walk in there's a strong stench in the air, my assumption is it's the over usage of cumin. However, once you walk past the bar it's no longer noticeable.
Our waiter was attentive and engaged in conversation, but as the meal went on he became less responsive to our needs. BUT there were two large parties in the back, he was probably pulled to help.
It was a little noisier than I personally like. But that isn't the restaurant's fault... the surrounding patrons were noisy.
The food was delicious (Cali salad, 3 choice with filet, shrilp, & salmon, choc. fondue). Overall it was a neat dining experience.
Servers always go over and above! Great experience!
Love The Melting Pot. Perfect for getting together with friends you haven't seen in a while.
Great service. Love the new menu. Chocolate and berry fondue was the bomb
Always a great experience, the staff always make it great, and the food is always top notch
I got the steak lovers meal it was good. Just wish for the price i could get a little more.
Great food and absolutely fabulous service! Highly recommend. We left full and happy.
Our experience overall was good. I definitely enjoyed the appetizer and dessert, the main course was not something I would necessarily do again. Also, we were a large group and I felt it was more complicated with a larger group and not as enjoyable.
Amazing time for my first time there. Great food and environment
We were seated immediately since we had a reservation, however it was 15 mins before anyone came by to take our drink order. Our server was nice, but seemed to have too many tables to adequately serve her tables. We have been to melting pots before, but it had been a while and didn't remember how it all worked. She wasn't great about
explaining how it all works. The service was very slow.
The salad had way too much dressing. It was bland and out of a bag not fresh. The cheese fondue was too heavy on wine and not a good wine. The entree was good. Meat was flavorful and tender. We had the yin yang chocolate fondue for dinner. Chocolate tastes like Hershey's chocolate syrup...very artificial and runny. Not thick and chocolately like I expected. It's definitely not a restaurant you go to for fresh homemade food. All very processed and from a bottle seasoning, sauces, dressings and chocolate. It is definitely not high quality for the high price. Out dinner for 2 adults and 2 small children was $150 before tip. That's with 1 glass of wine and 2 children's drinks. I don't think we will return. Would rather spend $180 for a quality farm to table type meal.
Service was poor from hostess stand to check. Waited to be seated with a reservation while the hostess took a phone call and ignored us while we were standing there. Waitress seemed annoyed with our questions and since most of our group had not been there before they could not get a clear understanding of the meal options. We were apparently on their "old" burners and our oil overheated and was spitting hot oil at us. For the experience we had it was not worth the expense.
The only table in the restaurant big enough for our party was very awkward; the burner controls were actually at waist level at two of the seats. Our server was not engaged and didn’t go through the safety or helpful tips spiel, despite having a toddler and teenagers present. I am familiar with Melting Pot, so I shared those necessary details (ie: no uncooked food on the silver plate, don’t leave the slotted spoon in the pot, be careful of the steam, etc.). She didn’t identify the meats either. I feel that when the meal is $50 a person and lasts 2 hours or more, servers should be friendly and helpful while engaging diners. The food was good, although some of the meat wasn’t cut all the way through and resulted in too large to eat or cook properly chunks. Server was great about bringing additional vegetables or dippers upon request. One of our teens ordered the princess drink and didn’t receive the sprinkles. We asked about it and were told the restaurant rarely even has them at all. Not a big deal, but seems like a really easy thing to fix and maintain menu accuracy. We weren’t terribly impressed with any aspect of this visit, but enjoy MP and will probably return at some point.
Awesome food and service as usual, and a great date night out! I love this place and I feel like I get something different every time, food wise and experience wise. The menu looked different than it did before, and it looked a little cheap, but other than that I loved every second of it! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great date night or fun, unique dining experience!
It was great went there for my girlfriends daughters birthday
Great food. Great options and amazing service. Quiet and warm environment.
Wonderful as always!
This is my all-time FAVORITE restaurant. This location, in particular, is my all-time FAVORITE Melting Pot, too.
I just LOVE everything about this place! When I come, I ALWAYS have a magnificent experience!
Favorite restaurant to celebrate life events with the kids! Always delicious and service was great! Only problem I see is that the portion sizes continually get smaller... but the prices do not. Other than that it was wonderful!
Great food and service like always...one of our favorite date spots!
