We absolutely love coming here. The food is always delicious and the service is always amazing.
This restaurant is on the pricey side, ($50/person) but as an occasional no date night or celebration dinner it is definitely worth it.
My boyfriend and I got the dinner for two. I’d definitely recommend the hatch green cheese fondue which was amazing since we could customize the spice level and the California salad because the pecans and raspberry dressing are fantastic.

The food was mouth-watering, the lighting and music was lovely. My fiancee and I had a wonderful date.

Also, unrelated to anything the restaurant itself is responsible for, if you are going to use your alarm to cook your food, please set the sound at the end of the alarm to “stop playing” so people don’t have to hear your alarm every two minutes.

We were very disappointing. It was our 50th wedding anniversary and we were put in a room with Parties and many other people. There was no privacy and it was very loud.
Also, it seemed that our waiter was in a hurry and wanted us to hurry as well. He wanted us to eat and leave.
Another thing, this is the third time filling out this survey because every time I ask a question I can't get back to the survey without starting all over again.

It will be a long time if ever that we eat at the Melting Pot again.

The restaurant is out dated. Needs better lighting. Sat in a room with four others and the lights were so bright. Server was not very personable. Added a 25% tip while checking out. I had to question the bill. Food was ok but not as good as the Glendale location.
Very disappointed with the night based on how much I paid for dinner. One and done.

This was the first time we’ve gone out for dinner since Covid. The restaurant was spaced out, the servers were all masked and there were only a few tables open for business. I expected to feel anxious but I didn’t. The food and experience were as good as always and our waiter was friendly and interactive.

Was disappointed that no one on staff was wearing a mask. It’s strange to have them bring food your going to eat then explain everything over the food with no covering. I would have enjoyed the experience 10 fold if they just wear face coverings.

I was a little surprised that our waiter never wore a mask. I don't feel like the tiny entree portions were a good value for the $30 prices and the beef was tough and not a good quality for the small portion and high price. Sauces were both the same, we didn't get a green goddess.

Went out for a birthday dinner. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding.

One issue- the hostess was unfazed. Made a request for a private booth and that it was a birthday dinner. She never checked then reservation and tried to seat us next to a family. I had to ask again for the private booth. It just seemed to me she did not care at all.

I had never eaten at The Melting Pot before, but my husband and I were thrilled with the whole experience! The ambiance was private and romantic, the waiter was attentive but not intrusive, and every bite of food was phenomenal. We don’t have the budget to visit frequently, but The Melting Pot is a top-notch choice to celebrate a special occasion!

Waiter was arrogant and rush us through our dinner. He insulted my husband twice. He didn't explain the menu despite us asking for clarification. He stood over us while we tipped, then told us he was a manger. Completely awful. Will never be back.

We expected an expensive bill for satisfactory food. We were hoping for really good service.

My daughter couldn’t eat her CAESAR salad because it had pine nuts and she’s allergic to them. I apologize for not reading every ingredient for the CAESAR salad and missed that it contained nuts. But would it really hurt the company to OFFER a replacement instead of blaming us?
