I hadn't been to the Melting Pot in several years and it was a totally wonderful experience. The layout and decor of the restaurant is perfect. The food was delicious. Our waiter, Jason, was outstanding. He has years of experience working at the Melting Pot and it showed.

About the restaurant
Located in the historic Congaree Vista Motor Supply has been serving progressive, New World cuisine using classic French culinary techniques for over 20 years. The menu features contemporary New American cuisine, with nods to Creole, Cajun, New Southern, French, Italian and Asian cuisine. We are Columbia's foremost "farm to fork" restaurant, working with local, sustainable farms for produce, meats, SC seafood and more. Seafood is caught off of the Carolina coast, and all of our stocks, sauces and desserts are made on site, including our charcuterie, with house-made sausages, bacon, country pate, and rillettes, all the way down to the pickles and mustard. Our early 19th century, solid-oak bar with marble columns, imported from Europe, serves 180+ fine wines, an extensive list of imported, domestic and local craft beers, as well as an artisan farm-to-shaker cocktail list made from house-infused liquors, handmade bitters, barrel-aged spirits and locally-sourced ingredients and garnishes.

About the restaurant
SakiTumi boasts an authentic menu, with both fresh sushi (we have tuna overnighted from Hawaii) and flavorful grill items. Located in the heart of the Vista, we are down a quaint alleyway in a historic building that used to house the production of Model T fords.

Awarded "Best Sushi Restaurant" by the readers of the State newspaper, we continue our ethics of quality by ordering fresh, #1 ahi tuna along with salmon, butterfish and more. Our flavorful grill items include a variety of hibachi-style plates, tacos and even a Wagyu beef burger.

Serving Columbia as a local, independent restaurant since 2006, we have made friends and family from all over the southeast and continue to provide delicious food in a casual, upbeat and energetic atmosphere. Music videos or sports are playing on our large tv's behind the bar, and we have a nice collection of wine and speciality drinks to compliment our food.

We invite you to get fresh with us anytime.

Fabulous dinner! We dined early and had most of the restaurant to ourselves. We sat in the corner booth which was quiet and private. Maddie was a kind, pleasant and helpful server. She made a number of recommendations - all of which were spot on. The quality of the food was outstanding - every bit of other reviews and information on the website. We truly enjoyed our dinner and will be back!

Food great, really nice place and quiet enough to talk at the table. Cocktails ordered to drink before our meal arrived at the same time as the meal so disappointing! Otherwise good.
