    We had 6 people (3 pairs) and ordered 3 Big Night Out meals, 1 per pair, but only received 2 bread/fruit plates for cheese fondue and 2 sauce players for entree. We did ask for 3rd tray of each and got them but it’s the fact the we order 3 different meals and was only going to be served for 2 with the cheese fondue. Overall, it was great, service was a little slow but our waitress was busy.

    The experience was overall good, except the waitress brought the sparkler out and then lit it when the entire party wasn’t at the table. Instead of rushing us she should have allowed us all to experience the celebration together. It was our anniversary after all.

    Very much a place for romantic dinners. Lots of hideaway coves that you don't have to worry about everybody seeing what you're eating. Very private and very special. Highly recommend.

    Our reservation at The Melting Pot in Columbia, SC, was for 8:15 PM, and initially, everything proceeded smoothly. We quickly received our drinks and cheese fondue by 8:30 PM and finished by 8:45 PM. However, from 8:45 to 9:45 PM, we experienced a lengthy wait for our dinner fondue. When I expressed our concerns to the general manager, her response was a calm but dismissive "It's coming." Reluctant to escalate the issue, I simply acknowledged with an "Okay," but from that point on, the service noticeably slowed down further. Despite the server being attentive and clearly stretched thin due to the busy night, this did not make up for the lengthy delays and reduced portions, such as receiving only half the usual serving of chocolate, leaving us with an abundance of treats and not enough chocolate to enjoy them. This disappointing experience on Mother’s Day was surprising given my past 15 celebrations at various Melting Pot locations without a hitch. Management's intervention felt more obligatory than helpful, suggesting that such service disruptions were normal. I'm hopeful this was an isolated incident and not indicative of a decline in the otherwise excellent service we've come to expect at The Melting Pot.
