Fondue
Bring your big appetite to the big city. In downtown Minneapolis, The Melting Pot is your quintessential fine-dining restaurant. Start with freshly made salads and handcrafted dressings before you skewer succulent strips of steak, and finish the smorgasbord with our famous chocolate fondue. Desserts rank high here, and just like the complex taste of our entrées, there’s something to be said of our artisan cheeses and luscious chocolates. But in our cozy corner of dessert paradise, we’re more than just a classy addition to Minnesota’s culinary scene. We are casual and approachable, which makes us an excellent choice for reconnecting with long-lost friends, updating loved ones about your life, or simply breaking the ice on a romantic date.

    We like to come here on date nights because they are so rare for us lol. Our server Anthony was amazing and knowledgeable and checked on us regularly. The cheese fondue was delicious and our salads were fresh and a good size. The meats (we chose the classic) were well seasoned and great size pieces. I was full leading up to dessert but once the chocolate and assortment of marshmallows fruit and brownies came out I couldnt resist. Can’t wait for our next date night here!

    The server seemed a little distracted, forgot a couple things multiple times between us and the tables around us. Although we were not in a busy section they may have been short staffed. It was a good experience just not an amazing one like usual.

    Sunday kids eat free. Child's chocolate milk is $3.95. Got charged $6.00 for it even after telling the server about kids eat free and about the overcharged choc.milk. She took off the kids meal, but didn't change the chocolate milk price.

    I was disappointed that we didn’t receive a table or booth with two fondue pots. Instead they only gave us one. Not happy about that! A table of 4 needs 2 pots!

    Our table was not ready so they invited us to wait in the bar. The service was horrible. They seated us at a table with one pot meaning all four of us had to agree on a cheese, chocalte and cooking style which was disappointing.

    DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES go to this restaurant if you are driving and have to park downtown. We got done eating and went out to our car that was directly across the street to find out lots of items had been stolen from our vehicle. While no individual item was over a $130 dollars it all adds up and thousands of dollars of stuff was stolen. They stole my daughters school books and homework, a small cooler and many other items. It was broad daylight in a touristy area with an incredible about of foot traffic at this time we went so we didn’t think it would happen but it did. We got to the car and everything gone including my other daughters volleyball bag and her jersey. This restaurant is in a terrible location with lots of crime and not safe. My husband later went back to this parking lot to see if he could find anyone with our bags and witnessed first hand guys breaking into another vehicle stealing stuff and called the police to be told they don’t respond to these calls on the weekend and that we would have to call back Monday to file a police report. Go somewhere else unless you’d like to become their next victim…

    Cindy, Segundo, Andrew, and Sheldon were AMAZING! The service was absolutely perfect, we felt like every need was taken care of before we even knew we needed something. The drinks were excellently crafted and the food was out of this world. We also loved that the atmosphere was upscale without feeling stuffy or pretentious. Would definitely recommend to friends.

    We come to the Melting Pot a few times a year and like it. The only reason we’re at 3 and not a 5 for this visit was we didn’t realize they had a special Valentine’s Day menu that limited you to basically 1 option. Food was still good, but the cheese option we were forced to pick wasn’t the best and the entree options weren’t what we would have ordered if we had the full menu to pick from

    We had a reservation for 5pm, showed up 5-10 min early, and didn't get seated until 5:25. What is the point of a reservation??? Our server was very nice and genuine. Food was good but I think our oil was too hot to cook our food appropriately.
