We love the Melting Pot and the food was wonderful as always on our recent visit. However, the service was particularly slow on this visit. We had to add additional broth to our pot because half had boiled away while waiting for our meat. We will return but thought Melting Pot would want to be aware of this issue.

What a great experience!
We brought friends who had never been to the Melting Pot. We all had a great time. We loved the new menu. Staff was very friendly, place was clean. Perfect for a romantic evening or an evening with good friends

Me and my wife have frequented this establishment for years and we love coming back again and again! Our server Richard and his trainee Greta were just absolutely awesome! Very friendly environment and a great place to enjoy dinner. Please give props to Richard and Greta. They are deserving of some type of merit award or raise.

The server took forever for everything. We had to ask several times to have our water refilled. She never told us how long to cook our food for. Then once we got our chocolate she was very quick to bring the bill. After noticing there were extra charges on our bill so was very rude explaining why they were on there. I still don’t believe they should of been on there but I paid for them anyway. We were also never offered or told about the St Jude donation program you had going on. It’s a shame the service was so bad. We visit this restaurant often and have never had such horrible service. It’s a good thing we had been there before so we knew how long to cook everything for.

We go about once a year for a special event. Most recent visit was disappointing. Service was incredibly slow and inattentive (dinner took close to 2.5 hours, refills of drinks and dippers were few and far between I don’t know how an entree that doesn’t need to be cooked could take that long to come out), there was hair in my food, they were out of the pasta and offered no substitution leaving no vegetarian option. This is not a cheap place. That said we’ll probably be back next year only because our previous visits were positive. Hopefully this visit was an anomaly.

The hostess wanted to place us by the bar when the place was not packed and we had a reservation. The waitress was very matter of fact and not friendly. She was just going through the motions and appeared to have no desire to be at work. The main dish was less than desirable and I’ll leave it at that. I will not be returning to this location as it was an awful experince on such a special occasion.

The food was pretty good. I knew what to expect when I booked the reservation. But as an overall experience it was less than stellar. There was a 20 minute wait even though I had a reservation. Our server stated that she was ready to go home almost immediately upon greeting us. Service was -incredibly- slow. 35 minutes to get our first drink, 40+ to bring our first course, etc... It was an experience that left an incredibly sour taste in my mouth. Although we were engaged 6 years ago at this establishment, after the service during our 5 year anniversary, we will not be returning.

My husband and I spend every anniversary and every valentine's day at the melting pot. We LOVE this location. Although our server was a very nice person, she was very slow. I don't know if it was her fault or if our food was taking long in the kitchen, but we spent so much time waiting for our meal that she had to add more broth to our pot.

We truly enjoyed our visit. Everything was great from our server to our food. Our only complaint is that there was a table of about 10 or so young teenagers seated near us. It would have been fine, except they couldn’t stay seated and they would gather near our table talking on their phones or in small groups with one another. It was a bit distractive. We mentioned this to our server, but she wasn’t sure how to address the situation.

It was our first time at this restaurant and we had a party of 4. We were there for 30 minutes before we had a drink or placed an order. The server was new and personally I don't wish to cook ALL of my own food. We opted for the Grill Version (which was new) but there was a small grill for 4 adults it took so much time the veggies didn't fit on the grill...it was just a disaster. I would NOT recommend it

Went with the family. May be the longest dining experience I’ve had which would normally be a bad thing because my small children tend to act up, but they were occupied with dipping their food and cooking it. They had a blast and so did me and my wife. Fun time for the family
